50% off at Cafe Mode - Endell Street

Cafe Mode, is a small unpretentious restaurant that makes great pizza, pasta and gourmet burgers, gourmet salads and fish.

The decor is a simple mix of dark wood and apricot walls and large mirrors, and the warm atmosphere, reasonable prices and delightfully friendly service have made this a hit, a welcome relief from the madness around Covent Garden.

Cafe Mode does a great range of staples served by friendly and capable staff, served in a neighbourhood style restaurant, which also has terrace seating outside.

Important Information

Please note: the tastecard discount is available on the a la carte menu only, this excludes the Breakfast Menu. Please be aware that this offer is not available at any other tastecard restaurants.

    I have been coming to Café Mode regularly for ten years and always look forward to it very much. Recently I went with a friend. I had the Chicken Caesar Salad and he had the salmon pasta. We both said that our meals were delicious, and the staff who served us were warm, welcoming and courteous. The presentation of both meals was beautiful. I was so impressed by the variety of the menu. It was a lovely evening all round. Thank you, Café Mode, for another triumph! "

    On entry, I asked if I could use my tastecard and the waiter went to ask the manager. When he came to take our drink order, he still didn’t confirm so I asked again and he said I could use it. Drinks took a long time. Food arrived quickly but members of staff were very unenthusiastic and looked positively bored by the whole experience! While we were eating starters, a member of staff put up a poster about a free glass of prosecco with every main meal bought. When I asked about getting this offer, again the waiter seemed to have no clue (the poster was huge in the restaurant window!)but asked the manager again. He returned but would only offer us two glasses for the price of one. Overall a very underwhelming experience but the food was OK. "

    " Visited this restaurant on Saturday at around 20:30 and will definitely not return. Our main meal was squeezed on to our table before I was even half way through my starter. My sea bass was over done and the roasted seasonal vegetables were mainly peppers soaked in oil, my friend's pizza was good though. I was glad that I had the 50% taste discount as I would not have wanted to pay full price for the food I got. We were seated near the front of the restaurant and unfortunately there were quite a lot of loud, drunk groups eating before they went downstairs to the comedy. They were so loud that we had to shout to have a conversation. Waited ages to get the dessert menu as I was still hungry after leaving most of my main, which we gave up on after waiting 20 minutes and I just went to the till to ask for the bill as the waiter seemed to be dealing with every other table apart from ours. The manager was lovely though and very friendly. "

It will persuade us to get back into London on a Saturday, to this restaurant. Staff friendly, food lovely we had the Salmon cooked perfectly, came with a salad which was exactly what I wanted with a pre Christmas diet! And the family had pizzas which were delicious. If you want to be away from the bustle this is your perfect little place.! "

    5 of us went for a birthday meal yesterday evening, I had read the bad reviews but went anyway. Well I don't know what their problem was! Greeted like we were old friends, given a perfect table, no hassle from the staff just laughter and kindness and lots of time to chat and choose. We all had different starters and mains on the whole and all were lovely. The wine was great, a Rioja and extremely well priced so we had a second! When the bill came we were all pleasantly surprised. All the facilities were clean and good and we genuinely could find nothing to complain about, only to praise. What a find. Ignore the bad reviews, honestly the people who left them must be mad. Or went to the wrong place? "

    After being shown to our seats, we had to wait to get the attention of a waiter to ask for a menu. We then had to wait again to get their attention to order our food as it felt like they had forgotten we were there! After ordering our food the waiter brought out bottle of wine, plonked it on the table and walked off! When our starters arrived we were short of cutlery and had to make an effort to try get the waiters attention! The waitress took away some starters while others were still eating and brought all the mains before some of us had even finished our starters! And the food was just plonked down even those who were still eating their starters had their mains plonked down in front of them!
    The risotto was terrible! Tasted like it had just been mixed with a tin of tomatoes! Could not eat it! The pasta was some over done and some undercooked all in the one dish! The lasagna had no taste! The waiters and waitresses just seemed rude!

    Avoid at all costs!! "

    Been here several times over the last few years and it's always a pleasure.
    Never been an issue with the food (not sure what some people are after)
    Never had a problem using the taste card (unlike some places that seem to want to be difficult)
    Always a very relaxed and welcoming set of staff that seem to genuinely care that you've had a good experience at their restaurant.

    Last visit I had the steak which when presented looked very nice, not the largest but perfectly adequate and no smaller than you might get elsewhere. So certainly no complaints from me. Before I'd started The head guy (I presume) came over and said he wasn't happy with the size of the steak and had instructed the kitchen to prepare another. This was by no means at all necessary but the second steak duly arrived leaving me full and very happy !

    Top place in my opinion. Looking forward to going back ! "

    We went to this restaurant for a pre-theatre dinner. The food was varied. Pasta was good, but the risotto was not great. All the food was quite pricey for what it was, but no more than other places we have been to in covent garden. Good location for pre-theatre - close enough, but not bustling and overcrowded.
    The service was excellent - friendly staff who were keen to help and fairly quick. When I asked for the bill and forgot to mention tastecard, they were really quick and reasonable about refunding me the money. "

    " Thank God for tastecard, saved us 50% on what was the worst meal we have ever had. All reviews rave about the pizza and burgers, no pepperoni for the " very popular" spicy pepperoni pizza, also couldn't do a propper 4seasons due to lack of ingredients, had better burgers at Wimpy, lasagne was grim, tasteless and sloppy with grey meat, mushroom rissotto was like a ding uncle bens rice. No vinegar for chips with burger, no ice, no pepperoni, no house wine and no loo roll in toilets! Poor does not even nearly cover it.
    We hate reviews like this because it just looks like 1 person has had a bad meal, 4 of us dined and all had different meals, we are not usually picky or fussy but when you need to go to tesco for a meal deal for something 1/2 decent then something is not right. We were really quite excited about eating here based on previous reviews, money we wish we had spent elsewhere. "

    I have been coming to Café Mode for about seven years and have nothing but good things to say about this lovely restaurant. During this time I have tried many dishes and have never been disappointed. The food is always delicious and the service is fast. Café Mode has such a varied menu that there really is something for everyone here. What is more, the portions are generous! I have brought many friends here and they have all been very impressed and have said they would spread the word!

    One of the best things about Café Mode is the extremely friendly service. I am always greeted so warmly and made to feel very much at home. This makes it such a pleasure to keep coming back again and again to Café Mode. Nothing is too much trouble for the manager, his assistant and the staff. The people, the music and the décor give this restaurant a very happy atmosphere.

    Thank you, Café Mode, for some very enjoyable times. I am already looking forward very much to my next visit! "

    Went here expecting a decent quick meal, but ended up staying for 3 hours because the food was so good and it felt like you're in a lovely restaurant in Rome.

    The owner/manager was very attentive and kind, offering to do everything to make our time perfect. The other waitress was not up to this standard however.

    Drinks prices are good, and the food was exceptional. The sea bass was perfectly cooked with a delicious crispy skin and the steak cooked to perfection. The sides are maybe overpriced for how they're presented and the amount.

    Bravo! "

    Firstly all this uproar about the door being open is really overrated... The restaurant is fine and on request they close it happily and leave it closed. The house wine is both cheap and very very drinkable, happily worked through 2 bottles between a party of 3. Tastecard very easy to use and whilst service was a little slow the food quality was good especially in a very expensive area to eat. recommend to anyone going for a pre-theatre meal.. "

    Firstly, they leave the front door of the restaurant open so very cold. When we moved table it was only a little better. Overview says discount is on a la carte which it is not, had to order from a pre theatre menu which we only wanted 2 courses of and we're still charged full. Calamari was horrendous, over cooked calamari and undercooked batter. I've never experienced stringy calamari before either and my boyfriend almost choked on it. Bland is a compliment. Chicken was cold and bland, £3.50 for 4 small baby potatoes. Seafood pasta came with one prawn, gritty mussels which looked days old and was filled with prawn tail ends which again my boyfriend almost choked on. Service is added onto the original bill and not amended when the discounted bill is presented so without realising we paid 25% service which was without a doubt undeserved. Feeling Sick as I write this and would discourage anyone from trying this restaurant. "

    A cold venue - the door wouldn't close properly, on a freezing lunchtime. The food was adequate - delicious soup. Somewhat dry & uninspiring burger. £1.50 for 4 small pieces of bread & dipping oil. It wasn't 50% off the whole bill - and I still can't work out how it was calculated. Service charged on the full bill & not on the final figure, which is unusual. Nice waiter, but quite a bit of waiting given the place was almost empty. Overall, disappointing - I won't be dashing back, anytime soon. "

    We were 20 minutes late for our booking, but they managed to accommodate us quite quickly which was good.
    We said to the waiter we were in a hurry as we were going to see a show, and they accommodated for this as well, and brought our food out exceptionally quickly. Service was friendly, but at the same time a little slap-dash as it was quite busy. Waiter had no problem with the using of the tastecard, and we got a good deal on our meal. He offered us an alternative menu with 50% off that one as well with a free drink so had a good choice of food. Waiter even brought us the bill without as having to ask for it - he remembered we were in a hurry. The place didn't serve ice cream for desert, however waiter recommended a place around the corner, which we took him up on - very good! Generally a good place to go if you want a quick meal before doing something else. "

Our waitress was very snappy and unhelpful. Trying charge an extra £9 for a service charge ( tip ) without our consent. All together I could not wait to get out of there! "

    Don't bother! The place was empty for a reason. The food was appalling. My fish although tasted ok smelt off and had no flavour at all. When I asked what the seasonal veges were I was told I would find out when it came out. Pasta was over ccooked with hug chunks of unchopped onion. NOT impressed at all. They kept tying to force a 2 course for £16 menu on us which would have been more expensive than using tastecard . Then again when we paid made up the bill using this method even though we had all ordered alacarte. Had to get the bill changed. Then the bill was brought back and although the tastecard discount was present on the bill they hadn't subtracted it from the total and got all shirty when we pointed it out. We didn't pay the service charge as it wasn't worth it! I definitely wont be going back! "

    We took our family here after watching Warhorse. Not sure if a coincidence but saw a man arriving with a delivery of the right number pizza delivery boxes to meet our meal, just before our meal arrived at the table. this included the starters along with the mains!!- useful! Also the burger and chips my husband ordered was aptly flattened- as if per chance it had been squashed into a takeaway box.
    However, these were minor issues.
    The real problem came halfway through eating the burger-THE ROLL WAS MOULDY and there was also a slimy strange coloured lump inside the burger-YEUCHH!
    This turned us all off of our food and so we left, halfway through.
    Needless to say we complained and we refused to pay anything as it was so appalling. The staff were ok-ish but not particularly bothered.
    WILL NEVER GO BACK !!! AVOID AT ALL COSTS.
    I do have a photo of the offending article which I wish I could post but it is available on TripAdvisor. "

    The service was the let down. The food wasn't bad, nothing amazing but certainly not worth the full paying price on the menu - I am not surprised they have staff walking around covent garden advertising 2 for 1 pizza's. The wine was great, and usual london prices of just under £20. We spent a lot of time desperately trying to call over staff, and listening to the table next to us complain about their luke warm food. You are paying for the location with this restaurant, and not much else. Shame. "

    I booked a table for 3 for dinner on a Saturday evening and for the first time I was really disappointed with a restaurant on the taste card list.

    Their special Cafe burger was terrible and rather dry. The must was blaring so we could barely hear ourselves speaking and the waiter was clearly untrained. He ignored us a few times and was very agitated when we asked him to take our drinks order and then come back for our food order (he decided to take them together). He then lazily came to the table chewing food and seemed to be rather put out that we were asking him for our bill.

    I will never visit this establishment again "

    Tastecard can provide great value for money but in the case of Cafe Mode it's not even worth it with 50% off. Menu prices are over inflated, the food is poor and the service is atrocious.

    " Despite making a reservation in advance, we were placed (at first) right next to the entrance. With the owner constantly rushing in and out, it was quite uncomfortable there, which he must have realized and he then offered us a table in the back of the restaurant. We did not receive drink menues at arrival, so I had to grab one from another table. Service took quite a long time to take notice of us although there were hardly any other guests (Sunday evening). After that, service was quick and friendly. Food was, even for London, overpriced in my opinion. Seafood in the pasta was definitely not fresh and tasted dry. Music was too lound and inappropriate for an Italian restaurant, felt more like in a club.
    All in all, a unfortunately rather disappointing evening. "

    We booked this place on the strength of previous reviews.

    We wondered if we were in the same place at times. The wrong wine was brought and then the wrong meals. It wasn't as though it was all that busy when we were there.

    The food was distinctly ordinary compared to other places we've enjoyed with tastecard. Perhaps our bar is somewhat higher than other reviewers of this restaurant. We won't be back - there seem to be much better choices to go for within walking distance of Cafe Mode. "

    We visited Cafe Mode pre Theatre as it is only a short distance from the Dominion.

    The Cafe is very informal and has a relaxed atmosphere. We opted to sit at a window table but had the option to sit at one of the pavement tables.

    The food and wine was reasonably priced and the service was excellent (very friendly). The food was served quickly and each of us enjoyed our meals. My wife ordered Risotto whilst I had a chicken dish. My 12 year old son had a very tasty thin pizza which he loved.

    As stated we would recommend and will call again when next in the area, thank you Cafe Mode. "

    " Me and my family have a really nice meal here to celebrate our son finishing school, I found the 2 for 1 pizzas good for the kids and the stake good for the other half.

    I had the grilled salmon, we could not have asked for more food or better service.

    Thanks for the hospitality. "

    A friend and myself went there last night and we had a lovely evening. The staff was friendly and attentive. The food was good quality; I had Spaghetti alla Pescatora whist my friend had Penne Spinach & Ricotta, we both finished our meal, feeling very satisfy. We were not rush to leave the place at all, and thoroughly enjoyed catching up over a reasonable Pinot Grigio. The bill did come with the service charge included, but with an extra 3 shots of Amaretto on the house we were more than happy to pay the service charge. "

    " Restaurant decor looks very nice in the photos. This is far from reality. The walls and general feel of the restaurant was shabby and in need of a facelift. I went yesterday with my family and am pretty sure that the prices in the menu are slightly higher than what was showing on the website menu. The spaghetti bolognaise was billed at £14.95 so really 50% off was not that greater deal! The majority of the pizzas were £12 -£14 but at least £2.00 higher than the menu on the website. We had the rocket and palma ham pizza and this was £13.95 not £11.95 as shown on the website. The pesto bread starter was pizza style but served with every other slice missing! - I mean, how much does bread and butter cost! The bolognaise was served already mixed into the spaghetti (strange) with hardly any meat sauce at all. I guess this was the idea so they could get away with serving you less sauce. Overall very poor. They added service to the bill as well! Never going back. "

    I have been coming to Café Mode regularly for ten years and always look forward to it very much. Recently I went with a friend. I had the Chicken Caesar Salad and he had the salmon pasta. We both said that our meals were delicious, and the staff who served us were warm, welcoming and courteous. The presentation of both meals was beautiful. I was so impressed by the variety of the menu. It was a lovely evening all round. Thank you, Café Mode, for another triumph! "

    On entry, I asked if I could use my tastecard and the waiter went to ask the manager. When he came to take our drink order, he still didn’t confirm so I asked again and he said I could use it. Drinks took a long time. Food arrived quickly but members of staff were very unenthusiastic and looked positively bored by the whole experience! While we were eating starters, a member of staff put up a poster about a free glass of prosecco with every main meal bought. When I asked about getting this offer, again the waiter seemed to have no clue (the poster was huge in the restaurant window!)but asked the manager again. He returned but would only offer us two glasses for the price of one. Overall a very underwhelming experience but the food was OK. "

    I have been coming to Café Mode regularly for nine years and have never been disappointed with the food or the service. I went recently and had a delicious Chicken Caesar Salad. The staff who served me were warm, welcoming and courteous. The meal came quickly and was very nicely presented. I am always so impressed by the quality of the food and the range of dishes on offer. I could have chosen from any number of meals which appealed to me. It was a lovely evening spent in very comfortable surroundings with pleasant music playing. Thank you, Café Mode. I shall be back soon! "

    Food was average for price and because we used our taste card we were treated as lower category customers. Served starters with our mains and didn't even asked for drinks, but charged us for table water.

    " Visited this restaurant on Saturday at around 20:30 and will definitely not return. Our main meal was squeezed on to our table before I was even half way through my starter. My sea bass was over done and the roasted seasonal vegetables were mainly peppers soaked in oil, my friend's pizza was good though. I was glad that I had the 50% taste discount as I would not have wanted to pay full price for the food I got. We were seated near the front of the restaurant and unfortunately there were quite a lot of loud, drunk groups eating before they went downstairs to the comedy. They were so loud that we had to shout to have a conversation. Waited ages to get the dessert menu as I was still hungry after leaving most of my main, which we gave up on after waiting 20 minutes and I just went to the till to ask for the bill as the waiter seemed to be dealing with every other table apart from ours. The manager was lovely though and very friendly. "

    Went pre-theatre, quick turnaround with good food. Service was ok but had to keep asking for drinks though we got them eventually. When we paid they stood at the table counting the money which was a bit rude (they should have taken it away and brought back our change). Worth a visit on tastecard. "

Would recommend booking as it could be a squeeze otherwise, but a lively venue with great food, will return. "

It will persuade us to get back into London on a Saturday, to this restaurant. Staff friendly, food lovely we had the Salmon cooked perfectly, came with a salad which was exactly what I wanted with a pre Christmas diet! And the family had pizzas which were delicious. If you want to be away from the bustle this is your perfect little place.! "

    5 of us went for a birthday meal yesterday evening, I had read the bad reviews but went anyway. Well I don't know what their problem was! Greeted like we were old friends, given a perfect table, no hassle from the staff just laughter and kindness and lots of time to chat and choose. We all had different starters and mains on the whole and all were lovely. The wine was great, a Rioja and extremely well priced so we had a second! When the bill came we were all pleasantly surprised. All the facilities were clean and good and we genuinely could find nothing to complain about, only to praise. What a find. Ignore the bad reviews, honestly the people who left them must be mad. Or went to the wrong place? "

    After being shown to our seats, we had to wait to get the attention of a waiter to ask for a menu. We then had to wait again to get their attention to order our food as it felt like they had forgotten we were there! After ordering our food the waiter brought out bottle of wine, plonked it on the table and walked off! When our starters arrived we were short of cutlery and had to make an effort to try get the waiters attention! The waitress took away some starters while others were still eating and brought all the mains before some of us had even finished our starters! And the food was just plonked down even those who were still eating their starters had their mains plonked down in front of them!
    The risotto was terrible! Tasted like it had just been mixed with a tin of tomatoes! Could not eat it! The pasta was some over done and some undercooked all in the one dish! The lasagna had no taste! The waiters and waitresses just seemed rude!

    Avoid at all costs!! "

    Been here several times over the last few years and it's always a pleasure.
    Never been an issue with the food (not sure what some people are after)
    Never had a problem using the taste card (unlike some places that seem to want to be difficult)
    Always a very relaxed and welcoming set of staff that seem to genuinely care that you've had a good experience at their restaurant.

    Last visit I had the steak which when presented looked very nice, not the largest but perfectly adequate and no smaller than you might get elsewhere. So certainly no complaints from me. Before I'd started The head guy (I presume) came over and said he wasn't happy with the size of the steak and had instructed the kitchen to prepare another. This was by no means at all necessary but the second steak duly arrived leaving me full and very happy !

    Top place in my opinion. Looking forward to going back ! "

    We went to this restaurant for a pre-theatre dinner. The food was varied. Pasta was good, but the risotto was not great. All the food was quite pricey for what it was, but no more than other places we have been to in covent garden. Good location for pre-theatre - close enough, but not bustling and overcrowded.
    The service was excellent - friendly staff who were keen to help and fairly quick. When I asked for the bill and forgot to mention tastecard, they were really quick and reasonable about refunding me the money. "

    " Thank God for tastecard, saved us 50% on what was the worst meal we have ever had. All reviews rave about the pizza and burgers, no pepperoni for the " very popular" spicy pepperoni pizza, also couldn't do a propper 4seasons due to lack of ingredients, had better burgers at Wimpy, lasagne was grim, tasteless and sloppy with grey meat, mushroom rissotto was like a ding uncle bens rice. No vinegar for chips with burger, no ice, no pepperoni, no house wine and no loo roll in toilets! Poor does not even nearly cover it.
    We hate reviews like this because it just looks like 1 person has had a bad meal, 4 of us dined and all had different meals, we are not usually picky or fussy but when you need to go to tesco for a meal deal for something 1/2 decent then something is not right. We were really quite excited about eating here based on previous reviews, money we wish we had spent elsewhere. "

    I have been coming to Café Mode for about seven years and have nothing but good things to say about this lovely restaurant. During this time I have tried many dishes and have never been disappointed. The food is always delicious and the service is fast. Café Mode has such a varied menu that there really is something for everyone here. What is more, the portions are generous! I have brought many friends here and they have all been very impressed and have said they would spread the word!

    One of the best things about Café Mode is the extremely friendly service. I am always greeted so warmly and made to feel very much at home. This makes it such a pleasure to keep coming back again and again to Café Mode. Nothing is too much trouble for the manager, his assistant and the staff. The people, the music and the décor give this restaurant a very happy atmosphere.

    Thank you, Café Mode, for some very enjoyable times. I am already looking forward very much to my next visit! "

    Went here expecting a decent quick meal, but ended up staying for 3 hours because the food was so good and it felt like you're in a lovely restaurant in Rome.

    The owner/manager was very attentive and kind, offering to do everything to make our time perfect. The other waitress was not up to this standard however.

    Drinks prices are good, and the food was exceptional. The sea bass was perfectly cooked with a delicious crispy skin and the steak cooked to perfection. The sides are maybe overpriced for how they're presented and the amount.

    Bravo! "

    Firstly all this uproar about the door being open is really overrated... The restaurant is fine and on request they close it happily and leave it closed. The house wine is both cheap and very very drinkable, happily worked through 2 bottles between a party of 3. Tastecard very easy to use and whilst service was a little slow the food quality was good especially in a very expensive area to eat. recommend to anyone going for a pre-theatre meal.. "

    Firstly, they leave the front door of the restaurant open so very cold. When we moved table it was only a little better. Overview says discount is on a la carte which it is not, had to order from a pre theatre menu which we only wanted 2 courses of and we're still charged full. Calamari was horrendous, over cooked calamari and undercooked batter. I've never experienced stringy calamari before either and my boyfriend almost choked on it. Bland is a compliment. Chicken was cold and bland, £3.50 for 4 small baby potatoes. Seafood pasta came with one prawn, gritty mussels which looked days old and was filled with prawn tail ends which again my boyfriend almost choked on. Service is added onto the original bill and not amended when the discounted bill is presented so without realising we paid 25% service which was without a doubt undeserved. Feeling Sick as I write this and would discourage anyone from trying this restaurant. "

    A cold venue - the door wouldn't close properly, on a freezing lunchtime. The food was adequate - delicious soup. Somewhat dry & uninspiring burger. £1.50 for 4 small pieces of bread & dipping oil. It wasn't 50% off the whole bill - and I still can't work out how it was calculated. Service charged on the full bill & not on the final figure, which is unusual. Nice waiter, but quite a bit of waiting given the place was almost empty. Overall, disappointing - I won't be dashing back, anytime soon. "

    The tastecard was very easy to use. The food was cooked very well and very delicious. My only issue with the restaurant is apart from the owner who was attentive, the waitress was appalling. Had to wait a long time for the waitress to come to take the payment. "

    Used tastecard to find it was only on the pre theater menu at £32 per person which made an average meal still expensive! 5 starters, 5 mains, 2 bottles of wine and an orange juice was over £120 when the automatic 12.5% tip was applied "

  • Robert said: "Pre-theatre meal
    We were 20 minutes late for our booking, but they managed to accommodate us quite quickly which was good.
    We said to the waiter we were in a hurry as we were going to see a show, and they accommodated for this as well, and brought our food out exceptionally quickly. Service was friendly, but at the same time a little slap-dash as it was quite busy. Waiter had no problem with the using of the tastecard, and we got a good deal on our meal. He offered us an alternative menu with 50% off that one as well with a free drink so had a good choice of food. Waiter even brought us the bill without as having to ask for it - he remembered we were in a hurry. The place didn't serve ice cream for desert, however waiter recommended a place around the corner, which we took him up on - very good! Generally a good place to go if you want a quick meal before doing something else. "

    I would not recommend this place. Very poor staff who is blunt and lacks any customer care service qualities. Food was not worth the price on the menu they only offer with the taste card. Our waitress was very snappy and unhelpful. Trying charge an extra £9 for a service charge ( tip ) without our consent. All together I could not wait to get out of there! "

    Don't bother! The place was empty for a reason. The food was appalling. My fish although tasted ok smelt off and had no flavour at all. When I asked what the seasonal veges were I was told I would find out when it came out. Pasta was over ccooked with hug chunks of unchopped onion. NOT impressed at all. They kept tying to force a 2 course for £16 menu on us which would have been more expensive than using tastecard . Then again when we paid made up the bill using this method even though we had all ordered alacarte. Had to get the bill changed. Then the bill was brought back and although the tastecard discount was present on the bill they hadn't subtracted it from the total and got all shirty when we pointed it out. We didn't pay the service charge as it wasn't worth it! I definitely wont be going back! "

Also it transpires that there are 2 cafe modes one on drury lane and this one on endell street on closer inspection the poor reviews mention war horse so i am guessing these refer to the restaurant on drury lane and not this one on endell street.
    i can thoroughly recommend the endell street one "

  • Sue said: "MOULDY FOOD
    We took our family here after watching Warhorse. Not sure if a coincidence but saw a man arriving with a delivery of the right number pizza delivery boxes to meet our meal, just before our meal arrived at the table. this included the starters along with the mains!!- useful! Also the burger and chips my husband ordered was aptly flattened- as if per chance it had been squashed into a takeaway box.
    However, these were minor issues.
    The real problem came halfway through eating the burger-THE ROLL WAS MOULDY and there was also a slimy strange coloured lump inside the burger-YEUCHH!
    This turned us all off of our food and so we left, halfway through.
    Needless to say we complained and we refused to pay anything as it was so appalling. The staff were ok-ish but not particularly bothered.
    WILL NEVER GO BACK !!! AVOID AT ALL COSTS.
    I do have a photo of the offending article which I wish I could post but it is available on TripAdvisor. "

    I have been coming to Café Mode quite regularly for six years and I always really love the experience. The menu is very varied and really has something to suit everyone's tastes. I have tried lots of different dishes on the menu and am always impressed. The meals here are delicious. The service is always quick and the welcome from the staff is second to none. The staff give the restaurant a lovely warm atmosphere. I cannot fault any aspect of this restaurant. I have been here with lots of different friends over the last few years and none of them has ever been disappointed. I always look forward to my visits very much and have even been known to have lunch and dinner here on the same day! "

    The service was the let down. The food wasn't bad, nothing amazing but certainly not worth the full paying price on the menu - I am not surprised they have staff walking around covent garden advertising 2 for 1 pizza's. The wine was great, and usual london prices of just under £20. We spent a lot of time desperately trying to call over staff, and listening to the table next to us complain about their luke warm food. You are paying for the location with this restaurant, and not much else. Shame. "

    I booked a table for 3 for dinner on a Saturday evening and for the first time I was really disappointed with a restaurant on the taste card list.

    Their special Cafe burger was terrible and rather dry. The must was blaring so we could barely hear ourselves speaking and the waiter was clearly untrained. He ignored us a few times and was very agitated when we asked him to take our drinks order and then come back for our food order (he decided to take them together). He then lazily came to the table chewing food and seemed to be rather put out that we were asking him for our bill.

    I will never visit this establishment again "

    Tastecard can provide great value for money but in the case of Cafe Mode it's not even worth it with 50% off. Menu prices are over inflated, the food is poor and the service is atrocious. Our table was dirty, we had to ask for cutlery with each course and we were there for 2 hours just to eat 2 courses each. The kind of restaurant that gives Tastecard offers a bad reputation. "

    " Despite making a reservation in advance, we were placed (at first) right next to the entrance. With the owner constantly rushing in and out, it was quite uncomfortable there, which he must have realized and he then offered us a table in the back of the restaurant. We did not receive drink menues at arrival, so I had to grab one from another table. Service took quite a long time to take notice of us although there were hardly any other guests (Sunday evening). After that, service was quick and friendly. Food was, even for London, overpriced in my opinion. Seafood in the pasta was definitely not fresh and tasted dry. Music was too lound and inappropriate for an Italian restaurant, felt more like in a club.
    All in all, a unfortunately rather disappointing evening. "
