Restaurant was almost empty when we arrived but we were squeezed into a window table. Service is friendly but slow particularly as there were only 3 tables. The food is good, simple. It was a bit odd that they did not have smoked salmon but did not tell us, they served thinly sliced ordinary salmon.

When we looked to leave we were kindly offered a free drink as there was going to be comedy on but that seemed odd as there was no one else in the restaurant.

I would not hurry back.

Went to this restaurant on Valentine’s Day and it was an awful experience. It was understaffed, there was 2 waiters who were rushed off their feet and they simply couldn’t handle the amount of diners. Once seated we waited 15 mins for a menu. Then after a further 20 mins we still hadn’t been asked if we wanted a drink. The drinks eventually came and then after another 15 mins our food order was taken. 50 mins to order! The food then arrived and it was very average. Mains came without cutlery. Had to wait a few mins for that. I honestly asked my girlfriend if the service was part of the comedy downstairs because it was an absolute joke. The restaurant is also extremely crammed, there is a tiny gap in between tables and you can hear everyone’s conversations around you. The table next to us waited even longer to order and after 15 mins the waiter came back to say he forgot what they ordered. Another 2 guests walked out as they had waited so long to order. My advice is to avoid. The only thing that saved this place is that it’s cheap. If it had been expensive it would have been a total disaster!

we thought portions were not very generous, there was very little chicken in the pasta. there was a board outside advertising a free glass of prosecco with a main and were not offered it so had to ask after we had started our meal.
had read very good reviews which is why we booked but our dining experience did not match those i read about.
When i looked online at menu there were some grills but not on the menu we were shown

The Mode Cafe was a good restaurant, slightly away from the busy centre of Covent Garden. Very friendly service. My only disappointment was the size of the portions and the presentation of the meals.

We had a pizza and salad before going to the theater. The pizza had a thin crust (which we liked), but it was soggy, not crisp. The caprese salad was excellent.

In short, the food was OK, but not a value for 50 GBP's.

We ordered 4 starters and some water plus lagers. The water never arrived and the starters were 50% incorrect. We all had risotto which was very bland. Overall very disappointing.
