This place was represented as a great date location. I looked at several pictures online that showed a great view of the water as the sun set. The reality was much different. There were cartoonish flowers on the glass window obstructing any potential view. I am sure this place was good at some point and the menu had some interesting options but was average at best based on the price.
I was disappointed and embarrassed to have chosen this as our date night.
The Cafe was a great place to eat lunch with my friend after walking through the Murakami exhibit. The food was yummy, the waiter was prompt and the atmosphere was peaceful. Since we were a table of two our table was up against the wall of windows (great view of the water garden). Thankfully, we brought sweaters to wear since the air conditioning blows down next to the windows.
This is the only way to end a day of museum visits in Ft. Worth. Sitting by the glass wall overlooking the water, will transport you to a place far away and you can let all of the art you've seen just soak into you. The service is always friendly, attentive and smooth. The menu changes often and is inspired by the current exhibition but I have always been thrilled. I also like the wines by the glass; good quality, affordable prices, perfect pour.
We were in the museum to see the exhibit and decided to have brunch beforehand. Great menu options. The server brought a selection of warm and creative breads before the meal.
My wife had the Lox Eggs Benedict and I had the pimento cheese sandwich. Each was prepared perfectly and really hit the spot. The portions were exactly right; you don't leave hungry and there is not so much that you need a "doggy bag".
The room and the view are great; not crowded or noisy. Attentive wait-staff who do not hover.
This is one of our favorite resturaunts in Fort Worth. A hidden gem.
A wonderful place to visit with friends over delicious food. Our service was impeccable.
Outstanding food and service. A perfect place to dine before the theater.
Met with my two best friends from a former employer. Great place to meet & catch up
Enjoyed the Japanese dishes added to menu to celebrate the Takashi Murakami exhibit.
An absolutely woderful environment. The view was nice, overlooking the water, the service was very good, and the food was excellent !
Fathers Day lunch
Great ambience if you’re sitting by the windows. You must have a reservation to get in for brunch. Food and service was subpar. I won’t be back.
My quiche at brunch was stone cold, so that was disappointing. Plus the whole room was like a freezer, so I should have brought a sweater. But you can't beat the ambiance.
Great location, varied menu, polite and courteous staff. Be sure to make a reservation to avoid disappointment!
It’s always a favorite for special occasions. Jesse is our favorite waiter. Table 57 is out-of-the-way in a little bit more quiet. Acoustically it can be a little loud looking out over the water.
The food and service could have been better. It seemed there weren't enough wait staff. I ordered eggs benedict and it was not warm. The bloody mary wasn't mixed, and the vodka was all on top.
A nice addition to your visit to the Museum. Love the openness and the view. Looking forward to the next rotation of entrees.
This place is too noisy and freezing cold. If you go, bring a sweater or something to wear while in there. You cannot hear the people sitting at your own table without raising your voice. The menu has a terrible selection. They expect anyone who eats there to be a health nut. Our service was decent, but nothing exceptional. I would not waste my money going there . It is overpriced and puts on airs it doesn't have.
We love Cafe Modern for after church brunch on Sundays. The service can be a little slow (we got our lunch 45 minutes after we arrived), but it's a pleasant place to hang out. The food is excellent. Just don't go if you're in a hurry.
I normally love Cafe Modern and it’s long been a brunch staple for me and friends, however it was just “Ok” this visit. My eggs Benedict were fairly tasty but both bland and blah looking in their taste and presentation. The breakfast potatoes tasted like undercooked potatoes o’Brian from “simply potatoes” or whatever in the grocery store refrigerated section.
Service was good. Coffee and mimosa tasty. Good company saved the meal but for $40, I expect better.
The coconut cardamom waffles had a sprinkle of coconut on them and at most 10 less than bite size pieces of fruit and hardly a spray of whip cream. Hardly as lusciously described as on the menu.
The breakfast potatoes were tasteless and the eggs Benedict was fair but definitely not worth a return visit.
There are much more appetizing spots in Ft Worth for brunch, but the view is beautiful.
Great brunch. Nice seasonal changes to the menu.
Cafe Modern is always good. We have never been disappointed in the quality of the food or the service. The menu is not extensive, but they've got something for everyone, including the best burger in town. The fare is fresh, local and seasonal. It changes with the harvest.
Beautiful setting, great waffles
Amazing as usual... Always a treat to have bruch there.
The food is consistently delicious and creatively presented, and the service is impeccable. The view over the water is stunning.
I ordered the asparagus quiche and it was tasteless. The bacon was cooked to order and the salad was just ok.
Four of us celebrated a friend’s birthday. Great ambience. Dined while overlooking the water. Our server, Rosa, was great. Although my friends ate their meals, they were put off by the lack of variety in the dinner menu. They opted to go somewhere else for dessert. I will return, though.
Several at my table had the Asparagus Quiche, which was delicious but all thought the serving was rather small..
Table was good as was the service. Started with bread service - except for roll all were overcooked but not warm. Ordered an appetizer to share which was good but out entrees cme out almost at the same time. entrees were not hot, just warm. They weren't busy so there was no excuse.
I frequently am disappointed in the food at the Modern--the descriptions are exotic, the food is sometimes meh. I think they work too hard at being "out there." But, I keep going--the view is lovely, the service is terrific and I can always count on the Eggs Benedict, a good drink and good coffee. This time, tho, they managed to mess up the potatoes--some strange spice that made them taste sour. No one at our table liked them. So we had dessert instead. Maybe that's their plan!
My husband and I took his mom to have lunch before a movie at The Modern. The food was very good, with large portions, and creative flavor combinations. Sadly, the service was sooooo slow. It was brunch time on a Saturday, and the restaurant was not busy. It's a great place if you're not in a hurry.
The view is almost as spectacular as the food. And, wow! The food was amazing from the fried camembert to the delicious chocolate cake at the end. Looking forward to going back.
Excellent restaurant--my favorite! The food is always delicious and service outstanding!
Wonderful for lunch with colleagues.
Excellent service, wonderful atmosphere, great food.
Perfect spot for lunch with friend(s).
Food is always fresh and beautifully presented.
Wait staff is friendly and accommodating.
I love that it is not too noisy and one can enjoy a conversation.
We have dined at the Cafe Moderne for a number of years. The atmosphere is magic; the food quite good; and the service beyond reproach. This year, the experience was somewhat disappointing: The menu appears to have changed with the chef as well as some key personnel. For example, we ordered a salade nicoise, ($16.95) which somewhat puzzlingly, was served without lettuce. We had to order a salad ($8.00) to go with our salade nicoise! They ran out of their usually notable bread assortment and reverted to small nondescript dinner buns. The sparkling wine was served inadequately chilled. The dessert cookie selection was mundane and the cookies were almost stale. This was not the experience we are used to.
In summary: The atmosphere was still magic but the rest of the dining experience was not.
We went to the Modern for Mother's Day and made reservations for lunch at the Cafe. This was our first visit to the Cafe and it was wonderful. Great atmosphere, great food and great service. The Cafe was very busy and we had hoped to sit near a window but that was not in the cards for us on this visit. Slight disappointment but certainly understandable as it was Mother's Day that the Cafe was very busy. We will be back!
Cafe Modern never disappoints. We like that the menu changes through the year. The service is always superb from the host/hostess to the servers and the others who ensure the experience is excellent.
It was very noisy, I was expecting it to be quiet dining for an upscale environment. The waitstaff was amazing and went above and beyond their duties, was very impressed with their service.
Staff is wonderful and food is delicious! Favorite place to dine in Fort Worth.
