Being at restaurant on a Monday provided casual & relaxed surrounds. The banquet selection for 4 people was a great choice.

Bad service, wanted us off the table even though half the restaurant was empty
Our wait staff was always rushing us. When it came to the bill, we were still on our wine, she essentially dropped the bill on the table and said thank you and walked away.

we took our wine and headed to the balcony, in the 2 hours we were there, there were plenty of tables still empty.

we were actually about to order another desert when they "chased us" off our table.

Overall experience was very pleasing, I arrived early and the staff took me to a quiet area where I waited for the other guests while I enjoyed a drink from the bar. The food we had was amazing and the staff were pleasant however some of the staff struggled with recommending wines to complement the food we had ordered. I would recommend and go back to again

We were pleasantly surprised with the venue of Alpha. Our booking was for 8.15pm on Saturday night so the restaurant was packed to capacity. The food was wonderful as was the service. The venue is modern and pleasing to the eye. With the venue being one open area the noise was quite loud though as expected with a full house. Overall though we were pleasantly surprised and would visit Alpha when we are in the city again at a later date.

Beyond disappointing. I ordered the octopus and it was literally one small piece of octopus with some beans and broth for $36! Complained to manager who said he agreed but it was chefs decision. Average food, lacked atmosphere. Go to 1821 or Apollo when you’re craving Greek food

ALPHA is one of my favorites. The food is always perfect. The service always so so. The floor seems a bit disorganised and the waiters often not very experienced. Maybe it's hard get good waiting staff but you can always train them, as top restaurants do. We keep returning despite this.

We visited Alpha for our anniversary dinner, and were looking forward to trying the restaurant after some strong recommendations.

We were seated at our reserved table quickly and attended to with drinks swiftly. Meze came fast, and was pretty good. Mains arrived after a longer than expected wait, only to be the wrong dishes (despite confirming the order at the point it was taken). No apologies given for their mistake, we were just told we'd have to 'wait 5 minutes' for food. When the dishes came, my other half enjoyed hers, but mine had clearly been kept warm under a grill while hers was re-prepared, and was sadly worse for it.

Our dessert seemed to have got forgotten too – another lengthy wait at an empty table – and sadly the Greek doughnuts tasted under cooked, but were otherwise a fantastic blend of flavours.

I think the restaurant probably caters better to groups trying a wide range of dishes being, and our table of 2 was relatively small ticket by comparison, so not worth the effort / tip ratio.

It's a shame; having been to Greece, and being a fan of Greek food, I felt Alpha did not deliver on what it promised and felt a little thin on quality and impersonal in service.

The food was good although quite oily and heavy. The service was also good. However the place is extremely noisy and hard to have a pleasant evening. I have been there 3 times hoping it was a chance but the same experience every time. Will not be back

Good food, waiters ok but there’s a cultural problem here. Restaurant manager very rude. Did not welcome us instead told us to ensure we gave table back at 8pm. We were seated by an ajar door that let in cold air on a winters night but given a lecture on why we couldn’t change tables with such insights as we’d have to give someone else this table who probably wouldn’t like drafts either. Value is fine and food delicious especially the lamb but otherwise I’d give it a miss
