The service was no adequate for price level. Bred basket was not offered, the water was spilling coffee all over the cups, sun was in our eyes with no protection. However, appetizer was really good. Steak was decent. We tried it once, there are other restaurants in the area that are better.
I go here often in spite of the fact that the food is mediocre. The descriptions are lovely and if you stick to the omelet or hamburger you are ok. The salad descriptions are lovely but always are heaps of lettuce with a scant amount of the promised fruit or other vegetables. This time the chicken that my daughter added at additional cost was tough and dried out. My Reuben Sandwich was so greasy that I could only eat half. If the Modern didn't have such lovely movies, which makes eating here convenient, I doubt that I would eat here except for the lovely atmosphere and service. Have a drink or coffee and dessert--that's safe.
Absolutely outstanding, as usual. Daniel is so attentive and anticipates a diners needs. We just love him and always try to get him as our server.
Such thoughtful and delicious dishes are a delight every time! Dan was an amazing server that really made an impression with everyone in the group. Wonderful brunch that is one of our favorites in town!
Setting is beautiful and menu very interesting. The room is very loud, making conversation difficult. Server greeted us promptly, got our drinks and order and then all but disappeared. I had to get salt and pepper from another server. Drink refills didn’t happen till the end of the meal.
The tuna dish was artistic and delicious.
Went for lunch and enjoyed everything about our visit, top notch. The only problem was the menu on the open table app was not the same as what was actually able to purchase.
Service and food are always impeccable and you couldn't ask for a better view. It's all the little details that make this a place I keep coming back to.
I might go back for wine and apps but was not impressed by our dinner. We had the crab cake special appetizer but I’m not sure there was any crab meat in it. It tasted like filler only. The short rib was dry, like they forgot to put a sauce on it. And we didn’t understand the pomegranate seeds on top. The cauliflower fritters were great and we also enjoyed the cheese plate.
It was an elegant evening for us. Nice atmosphere. The vegetables were excellent, the beef was a little dry.
Once was a great place to eat and then in Oct, Nov, and Dec it seemed to go down hill rapidly. We only returned because we were attending an event at the museum and saw it seemed to be recovering based on reviews. Doubt we will ever return. Service was terrible. My wife must have gluten free and the server brought her contaminated food. Food was cold and average at best. Not worth the price.
The cauliflower fritters were delicious, as was were the braised short ribs and the swordfish special.
Great food. Beautiful setting at night. Half price bottles of wine Friday night was a wonderful surprise. Dinner and a movie - a great night.
It was our 1st time at Cafe Modern and we absolutely loved it. It was a nice romantic date with music playing on Friday night and the scenic view outside. The food was also delicious. I definitely recommend the seared tuna.
Great food but the main dish was brought out to close to when the appetizers were served
Amazing grilled pork chop 1.5 inches thick and cooked to perfection. Great service and ambience!
Great as always!
A beautiful and delicious place to dine whether you are there to see the museum or are doing other things in the area.
First time to Café Modern and was extremely pleased. The diversity and uniqueness of the dishes really made it fun and all five of us thought all our dishes were excellent. The only disappointment was that for some reason we thought it had a buffet for Sunday brunch, but not.
We came for brunch. The food was good, not great. We ordered two mimosas each. I guess the original with OJ was on special, though I didn't realize that to get one that was offered with grapefruit juice was twice the price. The food items are supposed to be better quality, so I guess that explains the higher price, but I think I can do better elsewhere. The view from the restaurant looking outside was nice, but the view inside, very so-so. Nothing special. The service was good. I liked that you could have conversation with others at the table(not too loud).
Entrees were excellent. I never order chicken dishes at restaurants as chicken is a staple item and easy to make. The boneless skin-on chicken breast was the best I've ever had. Perfectly crispy skin, moist & well-seasoned meat. Prosciutto in salad expertly crisped. Shrimp appetizer not worth ordering. Tasted like standard shrimp cocktail served in always-difficult-to-navigate martini glass. Ambiance relaxing between indoor & outdoor lighting and stillness of the gazing pond. As usual for a restaurant on a Friday, a bit loud inside, but did not take away from views. Bar understaffed, making drink service take long. Service was prompt and friendly on all other counts. Will def return.
Four of us came for Friday dinner. The service was good and I liked that it was quiet enough for us to have conversation with each other. The view outside was nice, but the view inside was nothing special. Food was good, not great. The portions were very small. I think we all left hungry even after ordering dessert. I understand that the meat and produce are of better quality, but I was not satisfied with the value of our meals and drinks. For those reasons, I will probably not return to dine at this restaurant.
Such a quiet and great place to dine. The food is exceptional as well as the service. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to all!
Delicious lunch in a beautiful tranquil setting
The food was okay, the setup was nice, our server was kind of terrible. Refills on coffee took nearly the entire meal, we ask for more bread and it came toward the end of the meal. She also took the breadbasket when we were done with our food without asking if we were done.
I was annoyed the egg options didn’t specify if the eggs were pasture raised in addition to cage free so I skipped those options.
Overall it was a fun experience and I would recommend if someone wanted so,etching different but still affordable.
Our favorite place to eat in Fort Worth.
Outstanding server in a beautiful setting. Prompt service.
Despite the reservation offering a "happy hour special" none of the happy hour specials, besides half off bottles of specified wines, were available to dining room guests. Aside from that, the view is nice, wine list is extensive, service was fair.
Normally love the modern but the food was not up to par. The spinach salad was too much spinach and few other ingredients and the squash Mac was very over cooked.
Hoping it was just an aberration.
Cafe Modern is always a great experience. The menu changes with the seasons. The drink specials are always creative and delicious. Friday night dinner has a special menu and brunch menu on Sunday has a great variety. I highly recommend the Texas Cornbread Benedict!
Beautiful setting and great place for brunch or luncheon in a casual setting. Food and service are very good. I made a reservation online which enabled us to get a great view for a party of 6 on a busy Saturday morning.
Excellent food, excellent service, a little on the pricey side for the value you get.
Wonderful choice for an upscale lunch with a great friend.
Thoughtful and well represented menu. Well prepared food with attentive service. Quiet room with beautiful views. A place to come regularly
It is always fun to eat at Cafe Modern. It is my favorite spot in Fort Worth. The constantly changing menu always has something interesting to offer. The Modern had been promoting eating there while the lights are up. The trees are well-covered but the color is monochromatic (it is a missed opportunity; check out Vitruvian Park). All in all the lights were nice, but oversold.
We are regulars at the Modern and never disappointed with our experiences there. Tonight we also had the added beauty of the museums Christmas lights displays. Wonderful evening.
Went for brunch with a reservation. Cool view of the water and sculpture. Get the traditional eggs benedict. They were delicious!
Wonderful lunch/brunch before heading to the Kimble (also, perfect if going to: The Modern, Amon Carter, Science Museaum, Cowgirl Museum, anything at Will Rogers Complex, Casa Manana, FW Botanical Gardens, etc, etc, .... you get the idea 😉). Haven’t been in a while and menu seemed updated and all we ordered was delicious. Great gluten free options for those needing it. All choices were fantastic. View over reflecting pond is superb. Waitress friendly and efficient. Looking forward to returning and would recommend to others!
The menu is always interesting, unique, and well prepared. The noise level is the only downside. It’s difficult to have a conversation.
