    Thank you so much to Quentin and Francesco for this amazing 4 courses meal. The potato amuse bouche was amazing. Ravioli perfectly crafted. Very light tasty Mains. The raspberry sorbet inside the rose vacherin was perfect.. special mention to James (the section waiter & sommelier). He did a 5 stars service.

    I was pleasantly surprised to find a delicious, three course set menu available, as well as the à la cart menu. I had the kingfish sashimi and the sautéed toothfish as part of the three course menu, and both of these fish items were delicious! The service was attentive and wonderful. The Restaurant has a nice open kitchen concept, so I could watch the kitchen crew performing. What a great evening meal!

    I thought the service was very pleasant, yet we ordered a cocktail, 3 course meal with a wine pairing and the sequencing was terrible. The cocktail didn’t arrive until after our first course was served - so much for a cocktail before dinner. And why bother with the cocktail if the wine also arrives before the cocktail. And then we had to wait as our main course became cold before the wine arrived for that course. I was disappointed with the overall experience. You’d think it would be better for the restaurant in the Four Seasons. Also, whereas I thought we’d be having a nice dining experience, many other diners were probably just the guests at the hotel, so dressed in shorts, children with iPads…. Overall not what I thought I was signing up for with a celebratory dinner in Sydney. We spent over Au$500 and not worth it.

    The service was below par. The waitress was not familiar with the menus. Had to come back after we ordered to double check that she remembered it right. She would disappear for long periods. I would expect a lot more at the Four Seasons. The food was good to very good. However, the value just was not there. $6 for a glass of filtered water. That is just robbery. Prices were very inflated overall. This is a place to avoid in my opinion. Regret going there.

    We enjoyed a wonderful buffet Christmas dinner. The food and service was excellent and the staff were amazing! When we asked whether a particular dish had dairy in it, as my sister has allergies, the staff member asked the kitchen and came back to tell us that it did have dairy in it, but the chef was going to make some of the same, but dairy free for her. The food was plentiful and a great variety.

    Food was excellent and plentiful. Staff were courteous and helpful. Wine servings were a full sized glass which was a pleasant surprise, however to be charged per glass the same price as a bottle costs elsewhere was a bit steep. The only real gripe I have is that, having booked for a Christmas lunch, at a premium price, to find that a 15% surcharge was added on the day, put a real dampener on the day. Won't be doing that again.

    Mode at the Four Seasons Hotel Sydney was a lovely experience. We had dinner with a local friend and the food and service were excellent. We were allowed to take our time over the meal and do a lot of catching up. The ambiance was excellent for having a quiet conversation. Our server was attentive but not intrusive. All in all a very lovely evening.

    Services was a little off, perhaps short staffed as many businesses today. Lunch earlier in the day was much better. The team all worked together at lunch like a well orchestrated symphony. Unfortunately dinner did not provide the same experience. Food was disappointing. I had eaten lunch in this same restaurant earlier and the food was excellent as well as the service.

    Hello Mode Bar, It's my first visit but I enjoyed it together with my 2 girlfriend. It's my treat for them and they love it. My best friend's first time to experience the Italian delicious antipasto. I got to teach her how to eat my favourite prosciutto and cantaloupe. I enjoyed my cocktail too! We got served by very friendly young señore. I forgot his name but he has a nice moustache. It's like I'm back to Italy again... Arrivederci Luisa

    Disappointed overall considering Mode is located in a 5 star hotel. Very slow and poor service with one waitress reaching across my daughter to take my plate. We had the $30 antipasto buffet and drink so the value from that perspective was good but the selection of food was very limited albeit topped up generously when running low. Very dark in the restaurant, to the point of it being hard to read the menu! And we had to ask for a candle, as our table didn’t have one. Wouldn’t go back, unfortunately.

    It is a great location and it has a nice ambience. We may have chosen wrong as the risotto was abit too saucy. It was ok. Chips (not advertised on the menu) but because they did steak and chips we could order a side of chips and they were delicious! Dessert - frozen pavlova. The dessert itself wasn’t frozen in my opinion but it was for the theatrics of frozen ice and the mist. Service was great. Complimentary sourdough and little dessert to welcome my friend to Sydney.

    The service at Mode Kitchen & Bar was outstanding - very friendly and helpful staff. The food was divine - there were four of us dining and we all agreed that the food each of us had was superb (we each had a different main course and shared two different desserts) - absolutely delectable! Mode Kitchen and Bar also has a great atmosphere for dinner if you enjoy being able to hold a conversation with friends while dining without having to shout over surrounding patrons. If you really appreciate wonderful food (superbly cooked by expert chefs - my beef tenderloin was divine!) and a warm, friendly atmosphere, Mode Kitchen & Bar is the place to go. It's a little pricey but worth every cent and very highly recommended for special occasions or just for a treat any other night! Jenny

    Foods is outstanding. WE had Wagyu Skewer and Hiramasa Kingfish as entree and very moreish and delicious. for mains we had Risotto cquerello rice, green asparagus, morel mushroom & porcini powder and the Toothfish in a lemon myrtle dashi which s fantastic. Service is very attentive, and they try very hard to upsell you, which is understandable, fortunately it was a special occasion for us otherwise it could get a bit annoying.
