Great food, excellent service. Just be aware if you have a reservation in the restaurant, you might dine in the hotel lobby.

The food was excellent - we shared two entrees, one main and one dessert and all were excellent. The pork and duck terrine was a standout and the theatre of the pavlova was great. Service was also efficient and excellent.

service was subpar for Four Seasons standards. This is a little surprising given what's supposed to be a 5 star experience. Would not recommend it for another business dinner.

The venue is well designed, and we were fortunate to recieve 2 glasses of sparkling, courtesy of mode for our Anniversary. However, the service was horribly slow, considering the place was virtually empty and there were several staff on. The pizza's were for a special event, but I can't say they were close to award winning. The wine was reasonably priced, and the staff were friendly. Overall, it was a mixed experience, but especially as i had to leave our table and chase waiting staff for service at the bar a few times. If this improved, we'd consider returning.

Food was excellent, but service was not up to usual Four Seasons standards. Chair was very uncomfortable and a cushion from the banquet was required. Bread was not refilled, and no serving personnel around to ask for more. But the worst was that our side dish was forgotten!!! It finally showed up when we were almost finished our mains, and with no apology or explanation. We saw our waiter pouring water for other tables while we ate our mains so the side dish was simply forgotten by either the kitchen or the waiter. Food was very good , but we were disappointed with the service. We were celebrating a special event, but this was not a special experience.

Even though the Valentine's Meal was a dinner, it didnt stop the booking to go through the Valentine's booking link from picking lunch hours.
Was a little disappointed we weren't able to do the valentine's dinner when we arrived but the staff was really helpful and attentative and helped suggest similar/same dishes from the same menu.
The food and atmosphere was nice.

Food was OK, quality as expected in a hotel restaurant. Service was non-existent even though there were only around 3 tables occupied. After waving my arms around for 10 minutes I gave up and we went to the till, paid and left. As we walked out of the exit on the 3rd floor we saw the wait staff having a smoke, which explains a bit. I would avoid this place if you can.

My friend (from Adelaide) and I had a very lovely, enjoyable lunch.
Would it be possible to re-arrange the lighting? I caught myself in one of the mirrors (when seated) and I was not happy with what I saw.

Thank you again for such a good day.

Good food overall.
The Coral Trout was probably missing a touch of salty character. Rest of food pretty tasty.
Little bit pricey, but you obviously pay the location.
Service was ok, the waitress that looked after us was friendly.
P.s. do not use a chipped decanter, is really bad for a restaurant like that.

Food was absolutely delicious. We had the set truffle menu and it was amazing. Great value and filling.

The team were also really helpful and accommodating with provided us a table where we could have the pram at the table, which is hard to find for a fine dining restaurant.

Very disappointed with the quality of food. My entree started off with hardly any traces of truffle. I mentioned this to waiting staff and they took note for my main, the chef made up for it in my main - which was lovely. But the dessert was the same as entree - hardly any truffle. If I had known the quality was so poor I would of tried another venue, it would of been nice to know the amount of grams going into the dish or the region the truffle was from.

My partner ordered a Wagyu steak at medium and he received it a medium rare to rare. He didn’t bother with mentioning it to the kitchen as he didn’t want to ‘fuss’ over it. But on our way home he regretted not saying anything as the price point and quality was very far apart.

We walked out very unsatisfied compared to other 5 star hotel dinning we’ve been to. We honestly would of expected more from Four Season and wouldn’t be returning. I will be leaving the same review on google reviews.

Visited Chroma Vivid Dinner at Mode Kitchen and Bar and we were not disappointed, the food and service were outstanding and the entire experience was fabulous.

I enjoyed the details that went into every aspect of our experience to ensure that sight, taste and smell senses were heightened.

It was a very unique experience to join in the Chroma meal. The whole thing was very well planned & executed. I know the sense touch may be represented by us eating the food but it would be great if you could incorporate touching/feeling something into the experience also. Congratulations on a great presentation all round!

Amanda the superviser is highly customer oriented and goes above and beyond to ensure a wonderful experience at Mode for the Chroma dinner. The food can be more tastier as the dishes were quite bland. Alex the waiter is very friendly and bubbly and made our after party at the bar that extra bit special. Disappointing factor is the bar closes at 10pm on a Friday night.

What a fab night. All our senses came alive. A vivid dinner night. Each course a different colour and then paint your own dessert. Just incredible. If you get the chance - DO IT!!! 4 courses each with its own cocktail. Projections around the room and menu cards that smell!!! Sooo clever

I attended the Vivid Chrome dinner. I liked the concept and the food was good but I thought Mode can build on this with more experience. For example, red/fire meal, include smoke.
I would come again if the experience was expanded upon.
