Food, drinks and service were truly a first class experience. We were celebrating our engagement; the service made us feel extra special whilst the cooks kindly gave us an extra “Congratulations” dish. It’s an occasion that will live in our memories forever! Sincere thanks to all the staff in Mode Kitchen. Highly recommended for your special occasion!

About the restaurant
Located right on the edge of Sydney Harbour with the Opera House just beyond your fingertips…it doesn’t get any more Sydney than The Dining Room.

Our produce-driven menu is paired back, sustainable and unmistakably Australian, and shares center stage with unrivalled harbour views. Relaxed and elegant, enjoy the freshest of
seafood, seasonal Australian ingredients, and a selection of fine wines and locally crafted beers and spirits.

Lunch and dinner reservations are highly recommended. Our popular window tables are available at a surcharge when booking and subject to availability. Dress code is smart casual.

We dined there previously with old menu that were full of vegetarian dishes. Most of them have been removed from the current menu, however the chef and service staffs were going above and beyond to accommodate our requests and made it such a pleasant night for us. We highly recommend to everyone!
