Modern Steak reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Gorgeous, Delicious, Lovely
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 5/24/2013
    I was originally afraid this restaurant was going to be too expensive. But it wasn't. This is one of the most beautiful restaurants I have eaten at. I love it. And then you have the food. So creative and really delicious. We started with a mason jar full of chopped lobster in butter - ridiculously rich and very delicious. The grilled bread that came with it was so good, I asked myself how they grilled it so perfect. The meal was truly excellent. And the donut holes were enough to share and not put you over the top. And where did they get those coffee cups? Did I forget the wait-staff? NOPE, they were just wonderful. Attentive enough but not hovering. And the gentleman you brought over the wine and poured it was fantastic.

    Lunch is great...particularly the hamburger of the day. But, dinner the other night was disappointing. The oysters were miniscule...at no less than $2 a pop! Compared to Wildfish, they are a non-starter. My top of the price chart prime rib was so salty I couldn't eat it...ditto the smashed potatoes and especially the au jus. Took the meat and potatoes home to be washed off and served up some day with decent gravy as left overs. The help in the bar and at table were top of the line. The dinner chef needs to step up his game to match them.

    We took my wife to dinner for Mother's Day . She loves the early 60s look of the restaurant . Reservations were for 7:00pm. Restaurant was very slow for Mother's Day. Server was efficient but not very friendly. Food was very good except for one filet that was suppose to be medium well and came out medium. Wine prices were a good value. Best part was we were in and out in 1 hour and 20 minutes. Some restaurants take 2 and 1/2 hours to get through a simple dinner. Had a good time and will return again.

    Modern Steak disappointed us. A girlfriend loves to go here, so I was expecting great things. The outdoor patio ambiance and the butter poached lobster jar were the stars of the show, everything else was moderate at best. I ordered the beet salad, which would have been delicious had it not been overly dressed to the point of being soggy! The wedge salad is massive and those who ordered it enjoyed it very much. The beef carapacio was pretty bland and the accompanying shaved asparagus salad was soupy it was so completely overdressed. My hubbie ordered the king crab chowder (bland and boring) and the new york (good, but pricey). A friend ordered the flank steak and loved it.

    Returned to Modern Steak for another fantastic dinner. The Lobster Jar was over-the-top fantastic, and our steaks were perfect. The service was just as warm and friendly as our last visit, and the kind attention of Mr. Robert Gonzalez the sommelier was absolutely outstanding. This is a restaurant the truly wants you to enjoy every minute you spend with them!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014

    we went for happy hour, and it was decent. the only downer was the shrimp cocktail ($5) that only had 2 shrimp!! beautifully presented, but 2 shrimp?? really?? my poor husband didn't know what to do...he wanted to complain.... otherwise, all else was good. the mac and cheese was ok and a bargain at $2.50. we sat outside on the patio, which had nice ambience, but my dad was very uncomfortable on the low seats, and had to switch to a normal chair. our waitress was decent.

    I really enjoyed my steak. It was tender and delicious. I had two vegetables--green beans and the spinach/garlic. Both were a bit too salty, but correctly cooked IMO. The beer selection was a bit limited. Overall, a nice dinner.

    Not an especially good experience this time. We had confirmed reservations and arrived on time. The restaurant was not full when we arrived. Yet, we were asked to wait before being seated while several staff members congregated around the desk. We were not brought water or asked for drink orders for what seemed to be an excessive period of time. Our waiter was attentive but seemed stressed. The prime rib was not a very good cut. We will probably go back again,as previous experiences have been good, although it may be a while, but will likley not return again if the next experience is not significantly better.

    So here's my issues with Modern Steak: Everything was fine. It wasn't a bad experience by any means. The restaurant is beautiful the service was okay (our waiter was a little snobby) but the rest of the staff was friendly. Our food was good but not great. I would have been happy with the food if I was at a restaurant paying normal prices but to pay $30 to $50 for an entree with no sides then the food, in my opinion, should be spectacular. I think it would be a great place for lunch but not a nice date night. We were not impressed.

    For a restaurant in a mall, this is an exceptional place. The outdoor patio is excellent. The prime rib was perfect, nice size without being overly big. Moderate sized baked potato so you do not feel guilty about eating the whole thing. Had they not forgotten the spinich side, scores would have been higher.

    While the prices are a bit high the food here is delicious. The overall experience was great. The staff makes you feel like a million bucks and the place is well appointed. Modern relaxed look mixed with a bit of classic steak house feel. The only negative is that the restaurant is at the mall and the dining room is open to passersby to peek into as they walk into the mall. This is distracting to diners and takes away from your dining experience. But if you don't mind people staring at you while you eat then this place will be the highlight of your night out.

  • Great Food with awful, slow service
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 2/15/2013
    The food was amazing. The service was awful. Our food took over an hour. The waiter handled the errors by the kitchen as best he could, and offered to buy us 1 drink(not 1 each) for the trouble. We could visibly see him discussing the trouble with the manager and the manager never bothered to stop by. It's unfortunate that such great food is paired with poor management and what appears to be an overwhelmed kitchen. Unfortunately, I don't plan to return as we were celebrating our anniversary that night, and our memory of that special night will only be poor service. Fox restaurants have always been a favorite of mine, but unfortunately this experience will cause hesitation to recommend any of these establishments to friends and family.

    Dined on 2/15/2013
    We were there on a Friday night. I ordered a NY Steak Medium+, it came out med rare, I sent it back, it came back still medium rare, I sent it back again and it was finally cooked to medium. Meanwhile my date had eaten her dinner while I waited for the 2 extra trips to the kitchen for my steak. By this time the side dish (mushrooms) to accompany the steak was cold. The waiter and manager were very apologetic but did nothing to offset the quality of the experience. In retrospect, I should have returned the steak and had it taken off my bill. No attempts were made at any monetary adjustments. This was a special occasion dinner and we could have chosen Flemings, Ruth Chris, etc. but we wanted to try Modern Steak.

    The food had been delicious in the past. I made my reservation through OpenTable. I arrived on time..the server stated it would take a few minutes...15 minutes had passed, which is fine. However, this was coupled with a sitting at the inside "patio" tables, which stretch out into the mall area. This is not what I expected from a reservation. The hostess explained that tonight is busy and with a reservation this usually does not occur. I requested to wait to be sitting in the inside dinning area, they accomodated. BTW, This was a Valentines Date with my girlfriend. I thought all was well, until.....NO delicious unbelievable bread was served. The server stated the restaurant was out of bread. Also, the were out of the Short Braised Rib.

But to my happiness we were seated right away and did not have to wait. Our waiter was very knowledgeable with the menu along with the drink selection. The food and drinks were excellent. We will definitely come back for dinner and drinks again. Thank you for an enjoyable evening.

    Lets start with the not so good. It was 830 and they were out of prime rib and only had one filet. You are a steak house. Our waiter felt fine throwing the cooking staff under the bus. It took forever to order, get drinks, get food, etc. we waited 45 minutes for our entrees. Our waiter was way more interested in some high maintenance table and every other table he had suffered. Terrible service. My filet, when it arrived, was really good. However, you cannot charge those prices when your service is that awful. Won't be back for awhile - not worth the wait.
