It was a birthday dinner booked rather last minute. Given it was the third weekend after lockdown ended, it was very busy and the atmosphere was buzzing. I found the food was good and the presentation was excellent. Nevertheless I thought the music was too loud and I couldn’t really enjoy my meal in such environment. I suppose it had something to do with being in such close proximity to the Grain cocktail bar. I also thought the restaurant was ‘too causal’ when it came to the smart causal dress code. I am not sure if I would return.

My wife and I had a delightful dinner at Mode and was served by Akhil who was knowledgeable and thoughtful in answering our many questions. He was also adept in recommending the wine. The food was devine starting with the Pacific oysters, then the Lobster Spagghetoni and oven baked prawns. This is a great place for a romantic evening or a post lockdown company get together. I highly recommend Mode.

We were well attended by the staff at all times. The food was average and certainly not a match for the prices charged.
My friend had a stake burned on the surface, she said all she could taste was the charcoal burn, well for an over $55 stake it didn't feel fair. She cut off the stake surfaces and eat, so when the water collected the dishes and asked about how was it we voiced out the burnt flavour, and he brought complimentary nuts, my friend rejected it and we laughed about it, how complimentary nuts would match for a $300 dinner in which one of the main dishes was so deceiving.

As a first "date night" meal following lockdown, this was a great choice. The food was excellent, the room is warm and inviting and the service was perfect, with particular thanks to Dilshan who looked after us very well all evening.

Hope you would not mind my feedback, this is just my honest feedback.
While the food was excellent, except they forgot to give the butter with the bread; what ruined the night was the music level. So loud, we and everyone around us had to basically use their louder voice to communicate.
Even after providing our feedback as we weee leaving, the water basically said oh it’s that way to cover the noise of people talking.
We have been to 100s of restaurants, this by far was the most disappointing. We had to wrap up to leave quickly because of the loud music.
Also the waitress that was looking after our table a couple of times came in and pulled out the others who were serving us as if they shouldn’t lol. Not sure what that was all about, just looked unprofessional.

"What an extraordinary dining experience"

We celebrated a special birthday on Friday evening and what an amazing night we all enjoyed.

Special thanks to Executive Chef Francesco Mannelli for his recommendation of the degustation menu which was an amazing seven courses, which were all extraordinary.

The wine pairing suggestions from Sommelier Claudio were perfect and we enjoyed these very much and overall the service was amazing and we all felt very looked after the entire evening by all the staff.

We look forward to dining at Mode Kitchen & Bar again in the not too distant future. ❤👌🍷

Impeccable and attentive service by waitstaff, all of whom were charming and acknowledged we were celebrating our wedding anniversary! Ordered spelt grain with spanner crab and the scallops, both entrees were delicious. Whole snapper and glacier tooth fish for mains were perfectly cooked. My husband loved the olive oil drizzled over his meal and our waitress went to the trouble of finding out the brand from the chef. We had a wonderful overall dining experience and will definitely be back!

Last night was the second time we have had issues with the service - once the main course has been served the wait staff seem to forget you exist: getting the dessert menu, ordering tea/coffee, getting the bill etc all take proactive action on our part . Tea and coffee was ordered and never arrived.

We truly enjoyed our experience at this restaurant. The staff were excellent and because it was a birthday celebration they supplied us with desserts at no additional cost. The food, wine was excellent quality and prepared exactly as we had ordered.

delicious degustation meal - although my partner and i do like to eat a lot so we found the portion sizes to be a bit on the smaller size unfortunately and weren't entirely full afterwards. however the dishes were tasty and well crafted. the cocktails were a bit pricy but quite yummy too

The food was average, I had the duck which didn’t have a lot of flavour in it although it was cooked beautifully it did lack any distinct flavour, my partner had Risotto which tasted like plastic cheese.

Some of us found the food was delicious (the steak), others found the food excellent (the duck. cheese platter, dessert pies) others found the food ordinary (risotto). Portions were small. Not enough choice in desserts for our vegans.

Service was very slow - long wait to have orders taken, long wait to have food served. The servers were very pleasant and we were not hurried out.

Long rectangular table not conducive to a group conversation, especially in noisy surroundings.

Location is excellent for all Sydney areas.
