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.

The waiter that we had was just a delight and made our group so very welcome.
The food and drinks were wonderful and nothing was to much to ask of them.
Also the theatre of the Frozen Pav was amazing

Our server was super lovely and very attentive. I'm not a big alcohol drinker but they recommended the perfect sweet cocktail to celebrate my partner's birthday. We ordered the steak and pasta to share. The steak was DELICIOUS and melted in your mouth. I'm also not big on red meat (ex-vegetarian) but I would order it again. They also have a vegetarian menu that outlines all the meat free meals and offer main size portions for entres like the zucchini flowers. Delicious and would recommend. Thanks for a beautiful night.

The staff that served us was not helpful or delightful. Overheard other staff with customers beside us and their customer service was better than what we had received. Would be great if this was consistent. Overall food was alright. Music that was playing was horrible especially for a valentines day dinner. We were also not allowed to order anything besides the valentines day menu. How upsetting.

First time eating there, even though is was a set menu, the food was exceptional. We will definitely be eating there again.
The food portions were just right, the texture and flavours were perfectly matched and the taste was out of this world. Full credit to the chef and all the staff there.

Poor wait service and food far below what you would expect for a 5 star hotel and based on previous reviews. Poor quality food and service. Waiter was manic and kept forgetting orders rushed through taking orders and kept getting confused and misunderstanding the dishes we were asking for.
Would not recommend

There was a couple seated behind us who were groping and kissing like it was a scene from a adult movie. Did not look nice and felt a little uncomfortable for my husband and I.
Not once did the waiter or management say anything to this couple. Also noticed some families entering the restaurant who were not impressed. Cheapens the place and it felt like I was at a nightclub not a nice restaurant. It ruined our night to be honest.

Wine prices are excessive
Hand made, hand packed butter was served partly melted, changing the flavour of it.

Everything else was outstanding.

I wanted a "fine dining" experience for my 60th birthday dinner and this restaurant had the perfect ambience - private, quiet without being dull, attentive staff, low lighting but not dark, beautifully styled.
Great for a special occasion or intimate dinner.

My wife and I had our anniversary dinner at Mode and were extremely happy with the experience.

The food was excellent and service was impeccable. Ankhil (I believe was his name) provided the perfect experience from a service perspective. Was present when needed but not over the top and an a pure gentleman.

The free dessert for our anniversary was a nice touch and appreciated.

I can’t recommend Mode Kitchen and Bar highly enough.

Cocktails and entrees great. All three of us had the lamb shoulder as a main. Flavour wise... disappointing. Although
very tender, quite bland and under seasoned. Potatoes great, but the lettuce salad... really!
