Excellent service - very welcoming & lovely environment for either casual dining or entertaining friends.
The food was superb with some class & difference. We dined on 3 separate occasions & each experience was classy but very comfortable. Staff & service very polished & professional.
We commented on the low noise level due to the design & layout of the area - it was lovely to be able to dine & talk without being disturbed by loud phone conversations, which tends to happen these days !!!
Thank you for a great dining experience - we will come again when we next visit Sydney !!!

For the price we felt service could've been better. We had to ask for water, refill our own wine glasses, and no one asked what we wanted for dessert after giving us the menus... so we asked for the bill.
And not sure what happened that day my wife got bitten by mosquitos in her legs several times.

Food was absolutely delicious!
Waiters were also really knowledgable about the menu and were able to explain everything to us and answer any questions we had.

Found the restaurant through google maps, booked a table on the website, train ride into town and the perfect experience followed.
Table service fast efficient, food exceptional, wine list with people that know the wines perfect.
All in all a very good experience, will definitely be back.

Showed up for Christmas Dinner reservation as set through OpenTable. Regular menu not available and had to eat buffet at a jaw dropping 175 per person. This isn’t a cruise ship it’s the four seasons - more was expected. Nowhere else to go last minute and was an ambush experience. They deliberately and willfully held back the info from us at time of booking that it was a buffet at such a HUGE price until there was no other option. Total exploitation of people who had no other options for Christmas Day. Beware of exploitation in the future from them.

We booked table for two on Xmas eve. Really enjoy the experience. Great service from the staff, welcomed with a smile. We got there way earlier than our booking time but got a seat straight away. Food is delicious. The beef is tender and cooked to medium just as I ordered. My husband ordered catch of the day (snapper) and it tasted very fresh and cooked to perfection. Price is very reasonable for the location. Would definitely go again.

We had a table reservation for a business lunch. Our group arrived first and we were given our table. Our client arrived subsequently and were given another table even though they had asked for the reservation under my name, which led to an embarrassing situation as both groups were waiting for each other for a good ten minutes before we realised the restaurant’s mistake. The waiter also confused our water and mixed our sparkling and still water glasses.

To be honest the food was great specially your beef,but for the services was limits for this kind of place (ask salt and pepper should be on table when your order meat)
Many detail,but the detail make the difference

Arrived on time however the girl at the counter totally ignored us and did not even acknowledge that we were there. She was doing something on paper. Shown to our table waited and had to ask for menu and ask again for drinks menu. Took ages to get drinks then food. Totally shocked with what came out. Cut up steak with next to nothing else on the plate. I had Duck and sent it back as it was cold and very raw in the the middle no heat at all. They then just put it on grill. The garnish of bone marrow was congealed and cold. Would never go there again and would not recommend No value for money at all

I had the lamb shoulder which was good and my partner had the fish of the day, which he enjoyed. We shared the ricotta cheese cake dessert which was one of the best desserts I have ever had. The pavlova looked pretty spectacular. Staff were attentive and friendly. Overall the meal was a bit pricey (which I guess is normal for the location) , so more something for a special occasion.

Reserved a table at the Mode for a post-workshop business meal. Every element and course was dead-on perfect. Great wine list and local cocktails. Creative entrees and desserts.

My husband is a chef and his uncle and brother are both executive chefs in other Four Seasons restaurants in other countries. He is familiar with the quality and high standards the Four Seasons restaurants typically uphold. However, we had a very disappointing dining experience here. The food was bland and wildly overpriced for the portions and quality provided. There were not enough service staff either. We had to call someone to ask for a new glass of wine or refill of water. The ambiance was strange too. It was as if the restaurant could not decide whether it wanted to be a fine dining restaurant, a bar, or a lounge. I would not go back or recommend it.

Very impressed with the service from all staff, particularly the staff who was allocated to serve us.
He was constantly checking to make sure that all our needs were attended to and was very friendly.
It was my partner's birthday and everyone who served us (total of 5) actually greeted him which was something nice and special. Very nice ambience and would definitely return in the future.
