Arrived during happy hour and the bar was busy, but we managed to get a seat easily. Excellent service for drinks then moved inside for dinner. Service was attentive, but not over the top and the food was excellent. Crispy pork ribs outstanding, along with beef short rib and truffle pizza. We will be back!

What a wonderful meal we had at Mordeo! I was a little nervous at first because the bar was buzzing, but we were ushered into a fairly intimate section for dining. We barely noticed the happy hour noise! It was the perfect setting for a date night. My squid entree was good but I fell in love with my husband's pork ribs. I usually steer away from ribs because they always seem to be covered with a sticky sweet glaze, but these had a crispy salt and pepper-style coating instead. So crunchy on the outside, yet fall apart tender inside. My wagyu steak was perfectly cooked to order and the cafe de paris butter a delicious accompaniment. I can't rave enough about the polenta chips though. I've never had polenta chips so soft in the center, yet crisp on the outside. My husband also gave his pizza a big thumbs up. A fantastic experience!

The service was really good - a friendly gentleman, whom i believe is french.
Food was very good, the pizza was delicious, the duck ragu was disappointing as the pasta was stuck together and too thick.
The restaurant was very good, you could have a conversation over dinner and hear everyone.

A great meal at Mordeo. Despite their bar being incredibly busy (and noisy) the restaurant remained calm and relatively quiet. Food was great and they have a good wine selection. Added bonus is that you can pretty much get to Martin place station completely undercover which was great given it was pouring with rain!

We have dined here before without First Table and always had a great time. Ive noticed in the past when we visit other restaurants with other offerings similar to first table we would be treated differently (in a less pleasant way for not being a full paying customer). But at Mordeo this is not the case. Service extremely friendly and timely, food very tasty. Will be back again (and again)!

Wow amazing experience! Went with no expectations as it was a last minute booking and the last venue available in the CBD on the Friday night. The food was divine and the service offered by the restaurant staff was even better. We will definitely return. Keep it up.

It was my first time in this restaurant. It is located in the atrium area under the Deutsche Bank building at the street (Hunter & Phillip) end. The food was delicious. We had 3 different entrees and a pizza. We had the special salmon rolls which I adore and hardly any cooks anymore.
The service was professional and friendly - these guys just look like they care. It's a modern venue and yet we had a seat inside away from the bar area which was cozy and comfortable.

I eat out at least 3 to 4 times a week in Sydney consistently and I must admit I have started to feel jaded about our restaurants, the food they serve and prices. So it is great to be impressed with an eatery that ticks all the boxes.

I highly recommend this First Table restaurant. I would certainly return if it is not with the First Table. Could not fault it - 5 stars.

Girls night out was better then expected. The Mordeo Bar was buzzing with office workers enjoying their Friday night drinks. We had a beautiful 3 course dinner, of Corn fingers, Pork Belly, Hanger steak and Beef cheeks and the delicious Greek honey balls and Brûlée.
Quiet ambience inside to enjoy this wonderful night out, with great service.
