When we got there I was told I didn’t have a reservation, which was really rude.

When I was finally taken to my reservation (no apology given for the misunderstanding) we were sat right by the bar where everyone was walking up to order.

I had advised the restaurant that it was a special anniversary occasion and specifically asked to be seated in a nice area. I was pretty disappointed by my request being completely ignored.

Hi Lyly, Hope you enjoyed the rest of your weekend. My apologies this time we did not meet your expectations on your visit to ALibi. We do take this on board for the team to reflect on. I do see that you had booked the bar area - which all tables are sat around the bar and on busy nights there can more movements in the area, I'm sorry we do try to sit everyone in our best tables but can not always guarantee. Please if you would like to discuss more contact me reservations@alibibar

Hi MasseyPop, Hope you enjoyed the rest of your weekend. Thanks so much for coming to visit us at Alibi, Our restaurant being inside a 100 year old Historic Wharf building, over the water can get a bit of a smell from the ocean under us. We do try our best to keep the smell away but when there is a low tide it can creep up. We look foward to seeing you next time at Alibi. Regards, Jake.

I dined in on Tuesday 17 November at 6pm. The food was amazing, the prices were decent and the atmosphere and ambiance was great. The service from the bartender however was very poor. She was rude and unhelpful when I asked for different drinks that were not on the menu she made me feel bad for asking saying to check the menu when I asked for something that wasn’t on it and when I asked if they had seltzer water which is usually a pre mix drink she told me that would be an insult to bartenders. Just unnecessary rude comments that made me feel bad and ruined my experience which was otherwise perfect. I wouldn’t recommend Alibi based on her service and she has made me think twice whether I would visit again. Learn some customer service skills.

Super rude, unaccommodating... don’t think I fit the bill of your Sydney vegan - Wouldn’t help us find a table had to scour online to find it and when I did she didn’t hide her disdain for me and my party. Sydney is full of top shelf restaurants I’d avoid this place like the plague

I came here with my husband to celebrate my birthday. The food was delicious. They pay attention to every detail of the dish. we had the 8 course tasting menu with paired wines and paired mocktails. The staff and ambience was great as well. Even though the staff were all wearing a mask you can still see them smiling! it was so refreshing. would definitely recommend this place.

Lovely side room with comfortable couch and tub chairs. Casual dining experience. Accommodated our toddler really well. Found the DJ music a bit too loud for easy conversation. Food was great and good value. Portions were generous and defeated our stomachs! Would definitely come again. Looking forward to trying the restaurant menu.

Grains over cooked and dry

Normally love love love this place and the Food was great but with the tasting menu it seemed to be just all side dishes, I wouldn’t say the price point reflected the quantity of food we got. Also the service was SUPER slow, we found it really hard to get anyone’s attention to order drinks and then it took around 20 mins after each order for the drink to arrive - even with basic orders like a glass of rosé

Back for a second time. The tasting menu is a great way to experience and opened my mind to plant based food. The service was flawless. A little chilly but it is winter and we had a heater at our table and rugs if needed. Will be back again.

Very thoughtful vegan/plant based menu with a lot of flavour and variation. Broccoli steaks were terrific, layers of taste and texture. The 8 course set menu was good value and provided lots of variety. Sour dough and accompaniments also worthy of a mention. Friendly staff - all round, very recommendable!
