We booked to stay at the Four Seasons hotel and ate here at the recommendation of our trusted travel agent for our anniversary. Everything about our stay, dinner and breakfast was perfect! The highlight was definitely the degustation dinner, particularly our lovely waiter, Dilshan. Dilshan...was delightful throughout the evening and made sure we were also treated to a complimentary anniversary dessert. The food, service, wine matching and ambience was perfect for our special night and not as expensive as we have paid elsewhere in Sydney. We look forward to returning! Thanks so much!More

Mode keeps being Mode... I can always rely on great food, great drink and a great environment. Been back a few times and love it each time. Staff are engaging, helpful and friendly. The menu is amazing but I'm still to get through it all....I keep going back to the same favourites Blue Fin Tuna Tartare, Wagyu Skewers and Potato Gnocchi. I'll be back there for sureMore

We booked Mode for our wedding anniversary. We ordered the degustation meal, which charges a whopping $110 pp. The entire meal was a disappointment with little flavours and textures. The truffle deluxe desert was horrible. The waiter was kind enough to get us another desert...which we really appreciated. It is the most disappointing meal that I had for a long time and do not recommend the restaurant at all.More

Dear I883WQaudreyc, First and foremost, may I start out by saying thank you for the time you have taken to reach out and share your feedback and experience with us on Trip Advisor. I was very disappointed to receive your feedback about your wedding anniversary...More

We just had a 2 night mini break at Four Seasons and ate one night at Mode Kitchen. The staff were professional yet friendly and engaging. We sat in a wonderful booth which gave a feeling of privacy without feeling isolated within the restaurant. The...initial cocktail hit the spot and was not rushed. The wine list was extensive and well priced. We ended up sharing all courses to maximize tasting more options on the menu. Would highly recommend the Wagyu skewer, Blue Fin Tuna Tartare and Potato Gnocchi with black truffle. Thanks Mode team for another wonderful meal.More

We had dinner at this restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The food was perfectly cooked & delicious. But felt a little disappointed in the service from our waitress. She started by asking if we were celebrating anything special tonight so we told her that...we were here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Not only did she not say congratulations but continued the service as any other day. Why would she bother to ask if she is not going to bother recognising it? At least say Happy Anniversary! Then when we asked for a particular sauce she immediately said no I don’t think we have that. But I knew they had it as I’d eaten at Mode just previously & asked if she wouldn’t mind checking. She managed to find it but her willingness was not to try & felt she was there to do her bare minimum. It’s a shame as the food is good but let down by bad attitude from the waitress.More

Ate lunch here with friends on their recommendation. It was so nice to dine in an atmosphere where you could speak and not have to speak loudly to compensate for the interior design. The wait staff were competent and professional. The food was exceptional with...a great wine list. Fine dining with the associated price but will definitely return.More

Degustation was outstanding and they made a gluten free set for my daughter. Very helpful staff and great location for dinner near the circular quay.

Degustation menu was first class. Zucchini flowers and gin baba were a highlight. Duck just needed some potatoes

Fabulous dinner and service. Went there with my parents for dinner and everything was on point. The gentleman who sat us and helped us with the wine selection was attentive and made good recommendations. He was friendly and attentive. (Sorry do not remember his name)...The next server Sayani was also good with her hospitality, service and recommendations. The food is fresh, tasty and does justice to the reviews here. Overall I would like to see more vegetarian options other than pasta, risotto and zucchini flowers everywhere but that’s the overall comment for all places we go to eat: the duck and cod were perfectly cooked and would recommend these.More

The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise

frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit

reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
