We were six for dinner Saturday night. Noise is deafening. Food is so-so, service is friendly but erratic.
We expected more give the menu.

Regrettably it was a disappointing experience.
1. We were at the mercy of the wait staff for wine top ups (the bottle was not kept at our table). Fair enough, however under these circumstances patrons should not be expected to ask for a top up.
2. We finished the bottle of wine (an easy feat with 4) & were not offered the opportunity to order more. A missed sale & a thirsty group.
3. Salad did not arrive.
4. Salad appeared on bill.
My 1st exp at Alpha was great, but last night was a letdown

An interesting menu with lots of variety, extensive wine list too featuring some terrific Greek grape varieties in addition to the usual options. Excellent service.

Always great food, serving size is a little too big for one plate per person, and others are double serves for sharing. Our waitress was excellent very attentive and food was amazing fresh and flavoursome.

Alpha ticks all the boxes for me: great food, great vibe, great selection of drinks/wine, great service. My guest and I each had the Kefalotryi Crumbed Pork Cutlet as a main. We each agreed close to our dish of the year! Juiciest pork cutlet I've ever eaten in a restaurant. The Citrus Salad with Parsley, Sweet Onion and Finger Lime was almost as good as the pork. Looking fwd to the Spanakopita next time also, outstanding.

Excellent food. We visited in the pre Xmas party season so we found the venue noisy with three large tables of boisterous young adults in close proximity to our table.

Once again Alpha has provided a lovely dining experience. Food and service are faultless with quality, fresh produce and a good wine list.
Staff are very helpful and not pushy.
Would highly recommend for a quality lunch, either business or pleasure.

Staff and service were excellent; cocktails were delicious and the rose we had was nice. There was a good amount of food for the price. Standout was the lamb. Not many of us really enjoyed the baklava dessert, too sweet.
Would recommend and would return

The food was wonderful and very tasty happy with the food and interior decor, some staff is very friendly, however some staff is not, no smile and no talking, even I am not feel comfortable to ask to change the plate .Also, I started with the sparking water and she keep fill the glass and charged for 3 bottles in the bill. it would be better if she asked before open the other bottles.

This is a Greek restaurant and tsatsiki was off the menu?????!!!! Why? We had pita bread (+ more) for meze and we asked if they could give us the tsatsiki inkluded with the main dish as a meze but the answer was NO. That brings down the whole meal. Got a souvlaki with chips with feta on top??? Very strange food compared to what you get in Greece. But the meat in the souvlaki was great!
