The food and beverages were outstanding- truly!
I can’t wait to bring others!

Whilst the staff were super attentive we had 3 or 4 different waiters which seemed unnecessary and I had to check in about a forgotten wine order - not a big deal, and they were very busy - however this might have not happened had we been assigned one waiter? 🤷🏻‍♀️

The booth seating was extremely comfortable and the addition of heaters and blankets made it extra cosy ☺️

The food was soooo amazing! Everything was so delicious and beautifully presented. We had the 8 course tasting menu and so glad we got to try everything. The staff were amazing and lovely. Would definitely recommend and would definitely come back!

I booked a table here for my best friends birthday on Saturday night. We got there, took awhile to be served to then be taken to our table which was not what i had requested months ago when i booked it. We were taken to a shared large bench looking table, where we ended up having to sit next to eachother. We asked to be moved and told them we had booked months ago for a nice table and they refused to move us as all the other tables were booked. We did not enjoy this experience at all and the only reason we would go back was because of the setting and the restaurant itself, how beautiful it was but other than that i would not recommend anyone to go here. Extremely dissapointed and especially because it was suppose to be a special dinner for my friend. This experience was no suprise to her as she had previously been here before with her partner and had the exact same problems.

The food was a little disappointing.
Portobello mushroom for the main was not nice at all, sweet potato main was okay.
Pizza crust wasn't right, nothing like Italian pizza should be, too crunchy and not tasty.
Drinks were nice though and service is pretty good, apart from the very beginning when we had to wait ages to be seated.

Divine vegan food! Complex layering of flavours that were so delicious. We enjoyed every single dish. My favourites were the kimchi dumplings and the leeks.

Beautiful food and interesting and intriguing ambiance which matched the unique dining experience.

Great overall service and some great suggestions.

The value was aligned to the modern and exquisite food and service. If you’ve not experienced this yet... I’d highly recommend. You won’t be disappointed, and the price is worth it.

After my last experience no, would recommend for cocktails but for the degustation with drinks pairing I would not recommend based on my experience at the weekend.

I've eaten out at a lot of places around Sydney, but I'm yet to find a place that beats Alibi. The atmosphere is second to none. It is very relaxed, and yet also classy. Their food is delicious. It is difficult to find a quality vegan restaurant in Sydney. Other restaurants often serve ordinary dishes and use unhealthy ingredients. Alibi serves gourmet vegan meals with quality ingredients at very affordable prices. Also the staff are always so friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this restaurant!

Alibi’s worth the visit just for the beautiful, theatrical presentation of the cocktails (which are pretty tasty too). It’s a quirky little space with great service and an inventive plant based menu. Most are on point - cheese board, charcoal steamed buns, coconut cream pie (that crust) although I didn’t love the loaded sweet potato. The menu changes seasonally so you’re sure to find plenty of mouth-watering options.

Amazing Vegan food, So good that anyone who is not Vegan would enjoy it. A wonderful eclectic place, all the staff were so nice and nothing too much trouble. We are only hoping that the lovely lady whose creation it is will get to our state.

Great evening out, friendly service and creative menu. Steamed buns are a winner, as were the roasted carrots. Roasted pumpkin main needed a sauce or similar as was a bit dry and bland on the night. Desserts delicious, especially the maple pie, definitely to share. Beverage service a little slow and quite chilly, even with the mushroom heaters - good night overall, will most likely return

Seemed like a chain restaurant. Value for money was not good. Service was offhand although restaurant not crowded. Food mediocre. Went to Peppes the next night and fantastic food at half the price. Disappointed that a pricey vegan restaurant let me down so badly. Life long Vegan and wanted very much to give Alibi a good rating.

We have been to Alibi several times but this was the first time we have tried their vegan pizzas. They were not a success. The pizza dough was really not up to scratch and while for one the base was very hard the other was under-cooked. On both of them the topping was thin - the tomato/basil tasted good but the pumpkin one really wasn't worth bothering with especially as it was also the one with the under-cooked base. If your chef wants to see what great vegan pizzas are like go to Gigi's in Newtown and then come back to Alibi and make them like that.
Next time we'll go back to the non-pizza menu.

I took a client visiting from Melbourne to dinner at Alibi. He's a real foodie, not vegan but more than happy to go to vegan restaurants. He was impressed with the food and the matching wines (we ordered the tasting menu) but said that he will never go back there. The reason - the music is unnecessarily loud and intrusive and apparently can't be controlled by speaker or zone. What a shame. Getting so much, so right, and being let down by one aspect.

Best food I have eaten in 15 years of being with a vegan partner. Would recommend to anyone. We found the quality of food surpassed the price we paid, making it good value for money despite the fact it is about the most expensive restaurant we have visited. Could not recommend highly enough.

Not being a non meat eater but celebrating someone who was I didn't know what to expect. But I've got to say within the confines of veganism I was quietly impressed. Everyone on the staff we interacted with was friendly, helpful and engaging. We had a great experience and a great meal too!

I have been really wanting to visit Alibi for such a long time, and I was very impressed by the service and atmosphere it is gorgeous! However, I was showing a friend from Perth around Sydney for the night and brought her here- she ordered the “extra loaded sweet potato” which was $24 and legitimately was served half a steamed sweet potato garnished with some chilli and a minute amount of sauce. My meal was delicious and I was so happy with everything else, except that just put a dampener on the night. Otherwise, the staff were amazing and it’s a gorgeous venue.
