    We had light early dinner, and it was great. I had the Minestrone soup and the beef skewer. Wonderful. Ask for the vegetarian menu. They try to only give you one menu (maybe because the prices are lower). People who sometimes eat meat sometimes order off a vegetarian menu (that is where I found the minestrone soup). Insist on both.

    Overpriced and underwhelming. We had the Spaghettoni with scampi which was quite bland and the catch of the day (NZ snapper) which was pretty good.

    Absolutely phenomenal!! Came to Mode for my mother’s birthday celebration (a reservation made at 6pm). At this time people are still trickling in, finishing work, etc— as it was a Thursday night. The waiter that was serving us was extremely helpful in patiently unpacking the menu, walking us through the ordering process, providing recommendations of Chef’s special, attention to detail, world class customer service… list goes on. My dad mentioned that this was probably one of the best ambience/environment he’s been in. The night held a very friendly, relaxed atmosphere. What made the night extra special was that the waiter presented a surprise at the end… an amazing “happy birthday” written on bowl, topped off with dry ice styled dessert… the mist flowed throughout the table… lovely guests in the surrounding tables also noticed and wished mum a happy birthday…! Mum said it was a very memorable and pleasant experience— and that, in my books, is priceless. She was in very good spirits at the end of the night…!! Thank you for gifting that to us, Mode restaurant. Will be remembering to come back here and I will most definitely recommend here to people seeking to celebrate a special occasion, milestone, anniversary…! (Or even to just enjoy good food with a close friend). Cheers

    Wait staff can be a bit more observant in term of topping up water for the glass. While I requested Olive oil and vinegar, the staff should remember that and not bringing the butter again. Overall food is great as it is my Firth time to Mode but the black truffle tiramisu is less impressive ; the truffle risotto is overly simple. The entree wagyu is slightly over cooked. I would love the scallops entree and the beautiful presented Murray cod.

    Booked Modes 5th anniversary degustation dinner for 2 to celebrate my daughters birthday and it didn’t disappoint. Fabulous food, great energy , attentive staff and live jazz music at just the right sound level. Each dish was delightfully well balanced. Kingfish Crudo with macadamia starter was amazing, duck was cooked to perfection…My daughters amazing dessert also uncovered a special anniversary token and was presented with a gift (beautiful fruit and vegetable hamper box ) + bottle of Mode signature Hojiblanca olive oil to take home. We were spoiled. A big thank you to Chef Mannelli and the team at Mode. Delicious, Thoughtful and Memorable!

    We come from an area with a long truffle tradition and we decided to try the truffle degustation but unfortunately, we have been disappointed. Entrees were ok. Risotto was overcooked and we have been served as a main 2 slices of chicken ballotine with truffle. We would have expected a better quality/kind of meat by looking at the cost of the menu. The first dessert, the givree, was completely frozen, we were not able to eat it and had to send it back. The waiter was nice and to apologize served us a lemon sorbet instead. The other dessert was nothing special. Location and ambient were nice, service ok.
