Located in CBD, Alpha comprises of an emporium, cantina, meze bar, cafe and restaurant, bringing together a chic and welcoming set of space for drinking, dining and entertaining.

Alpha is a space to fit all purposes, guests can pop in for a quick lunch or a 3 course dinner with Greek wine, it really has it all. Even just enjoying a Greek Coffee and Loukomades after a movie.
Service was excellent from the moment we cane in the door. Things like filling up the water and wineglasses without being asked. Good delivered with manners
The food itself was a real treat. Interesting delicious and well presented. It was wonderful getting dishes that were traditional but redefined. Brilliant.
And the dining room has a lovely ambience.
Terrific evening for the four of us
Would recommend this restaurant
Great Greek food-very tasty and lovely flavors. The service was pretty good as well (except the waiter forgot my beer) but the noise levels was awful-I had to contatnly raise my voice so my partner can hear our conversation. The walls and ceiling has no acoustic absorption or natural surpressent so it constantly bounces peoples voices around. Anyhow still a great place to visit!
The food was beyond amazing everything thing we ordered was really fantastic. We booked for 8:45 but arrived at 9 as we were looking for the way due to the road blockages. The staff were not overly friendly and we could feel they were trying to hurry us up. The atmosphere was not nice at all and we didn’t feel comfortable there at all. And weren’t offered a dessert menu. The overall was not great but the food was phenomenal
Hi Talia, Thank you for your feedback, we'd like to hear more about your experience and will be in contact with you soon. Warm regards, The Alpha Team
We've been dining here quite a few times and never been disappointed. Fantastic food and service. Only the noise level coming from either the club upstairs or the private function room was a bit uncomfortable for us. Definitely worth coming back.
Hi Kogatt, We're glad you enjoyed the food and service, apologies about the noise. We look forward to welcoming you back. Warm regards, The Alpha team
The only drawback with the Service rating was that the food came out SOOO fast.... we didn't get time to enjoy and savor the experience of dining there, as the food came flying out. I think we arrive just after midday, and then were gone by 1:30... other than the food was great, and we all had a really nice time.
Hi David, Glad you loved the food and enjoyed yourselves, we'll take your feedback regarding the food timings on board. Kind regards, The Alpha Team
A very lively atmosphere with excellent attentive service. The roast lamb is most recommended. Overall our party has been very happy with the dining experience.
Hi Patrick, Thank you for the great feedback, we look forward to welcoming you back. Warm regards, The Alpha Team
The food was very good as was the venue and the ambience. The wine is over-priced however relative to the food
Hi Nicholas, Thank you for your feedback, we're glad you enjoyed the food and ambience. We're always looking for ways to improve our offering and will take your comments about our wine list on board. Warm regards, The Alpha Team
Team dinner at this fabulous place! Healthy portions for sharing, highly recommend the Lamb shank and spanakopita pie. Super delicious! Great ambiance and service!

Hi Deon, Thank you for the great feedback, we look forward to welcoming you back. Warm regards, The Alpha Team
Alpha consistently delivers a quality, innovative dining experience, together with some of the best of modern Greek wines (my Aussie mates are usually surprised at how good they are...😊) No question, Sydney’s best Greek restaurant!
Hi Angelo, It's always a pleasure having you dine with us and thank you for the great feedback, we look forward to having you back soon. Warm regards, The Alpha Team
some food came out very slow. there was a long window where we had finished the previous dishes but kept waiting. Everything else was perfect at the restaurant.
Hi, Thank you for the 5 star rating! Our chefs are perfectionists, apologies for the delay in your dishes coming out. Your feedback will be passed on. We look forward to having you back. Warm regards, The Alpha Team
Great food, prompt and friendly service and great ambience. Will definitely return!
Hi Daniel, It was a pleasure having you dine with us, thank you for the great comments. We look forward to having you back. Warm regards, The Alpha Team
Food was pretty good, although serving size was quite small for the price. What really left a bad taste in our mouth was the service. It was horrible. At one point I was ordering with the waitress and she dazed off and wasn’t looking at me. She then said ‘sorry what?’. This wasn’t just one waitress, it seemed to be the attitude of all staff including the host. For their prices, you should be able to get good Greek food anywhere. What makes a restaurant different is there service, and our experience at alpha was overall negative.
The restaurant is beautiful,
White and lit quiet well. Very modern and inviting yet reminiscent of Greece. The food overall was ok. Not amazing but good. They charge separately for pita bread which I found amusing since most Greek appetizers are eaten with bread.
Service was good & helpful but the food was definitely below what anyone would expect. No consideration to allow us to finish our starters, the mains were placed on the table beside our table! By the time to eat the mains they were only like warm. The mains were obviously prepared by someone who doesn’t know how to cook & present food on a plate. I wasted over $200 for a very poor & unsatisfactory meal & disappointed my guest. I would not want to eat at this restaurant again.
Amazing food and beautiful space, the wait team are very accommodating
Beautiful restaurant, food was lovely. Felt a bit annoyed that out food came out altogether, the dips and mains, so felt rushed
Excellent food quality, lovely ambiance, the gin list was extensive and what I tasted was delicious.
Wonderful food and excellent wine list - the reds from Crete are really special. Difficult when it’s busy and you have to shanghai a waiter but great value when you do!
Love this place. The gin cocktails were AMAZING. The feeling of quiet enough to talk but still ambient plus having room and not feeling jammed in was lovely. The food was absolutely delicous and having nice vegetarian options was much appreciated, even more on the menu would always be great too of course :) I have already recommended it and plan on bringing people in the near future. Thanks for a lovely evening.
Great ambience and look of the place
Starters were great
Mains took way too long considering we were the second table to arrive for lunch
Mains were disappointing
I have been many times, love it . It was the best place to celebrate my birthday
The service is great nice bar to sit in if your table is not ready. The food is delicious, great for sharing. Very comfortable venue but is noisy with lots of people. Suggest turn down music so less noise so we can talk. Other wise fantastic
After looking at the menu online, I saw the “$65 yiayias menu” and I thought it would be a perfect surprise for my Fiancé’s birthday, that way he could try a little of everything. Unfortunately when we got there, the menu stated minimum 4 people. Was super disappointed as this was not displayed online, and the whole reason I booked was for that specific menu. If the online store could have stated that, I would’ve appreciated it.
The staff did try their best to look after us & the food was great none the less.
Again though, would recommend that the online menu is edited, very deceiving.
Love Alpha every time. Great service and stunning food.
Had a great night. Food was absolutely delicious. Our waiter was very good in his advice.
Great food and wine list is good too! Service remarkable.
Beautiful, hearty traditional Greek food. Service was amazing and we will definitely be back!
Delicious food, fabulous Prosecco, service that somehow managed well despite being completed packed with every one seemingly arriving at the same time, 6.30pm-6.45pm. Love Alpha and am looking forward to returning again soon. Peter C has really landed on his feet at this great site, easy to get to location... a long way from the hole in the wall I went to in Darlo in'92 or '93.
We enjoyed the entire experience. The staff were attentive and helpful.The food was excellent. We would encourage anyone who wants a first class dining experience to go to Alpha.
Food was great, service was efficient and friendly. Special mention to sommelier Irek for his hospitality during service he made our night that much more special.
The biggest issue was the service, which was slow and begrudging - despite the requests being simple and polite. We were also seated at an uncomfortable table, despite there being other options. The restaurant was less than one-third full.
We have been to Alpha many times so when choosing somewhere for our anniversary it was a no brainer. However we were really disappointed as it seems the food has changed significantly and what was once a huge draw card is now no longer. The saganaki was not the beautiful melted honey drenched entree it once was, it was two Luke warm pieces of halloumi with a fig on top. The restaurant was only half full and it took so long to take our drinks order we only ever got two drinks, not the anniversary we’d hoped for. Such a shame and probably explains why a once difficult place to get in to was so sadly empty.
Had the Palouse set menu with wine . Highly recommendable
Excellent authentic Greek food. Good selection of vegetarian options. Good service and pleasant surroundings.
good authentic Greek food, good service.
music is too loud and prices are too high
Good food, nice surrounding and great location. I would have given this close to 5 stars except the service could be improved substantially, especially for a higher end restaurant. We felt rushed the moment we sat down, being reminded what time we had leave by about 5x throughout the dinner.The waitress who served us seemed annoyed and gave us attitude when we asked questions about the menu. She again hurried us in an annoyed manner when we still had half hour left on our booking for dessert. Her attitude and rudeness just dampened what would’ve been a fantastic experience/night with friends. Such a shame.
It's always a pleasure to dine at Alpha Restaurant. The food is a gastronomic experience and the wait staff very attentive. I recently dined here with friends who don't eat lamb which is a signature dish at Alpha. We chose the snapper and prawn dishes along with the spanakopita and several others which were a huge hit! Already looking forward to our next visit.
