Abstract: We observe that for a large class of non-amenable groups $ G$, one can find bounded representations of $ {\operatorname {A}}(G)$ on a Hilbert space which are not completely bounded. We also consider restriction algebras obtained from $ {\operatorname {A}}(G)$, equipped with the natural operator space structure, and ask whether such algebras can be completely isomorphic to operator algebras. Partial results are obtained using a modified notion of the Helson set which takes into account operator space structure. In particular, we show that when $ G$ is virtually abelian and $ E$ is a closed subset, the restriction algebra $ {\operatorname {A}} _G(E)$ is completely isomorphic to an operator algebra if and only if $ E$ is finite.
