Love this place. Great ambiance and food. The location is great and it's a great place to go have dinner or sit at the bar and have drinks.

We had an early dinner on a Friday night. Happy Hour was still going on, I believe. The food and service was very good, but it was so loud that we had trouble carrying on a conversation.

This is a great place to meet up with friends and have a fun time. The margaritas are the best in town, with the Rustic and Clooney being my favorites. Great service, too. Definitely gem in the neighborhood.

Love the High Street concept and Modern Margarita. Hopefully they will both survive. We were greeted by a friendly hostess and seated in a spacious booth. The bar, in the Center of the restaurant separates the inside seating from the patio. Doors were open to the patio so it was quite warm inside. This didn't bother me though because I was the only one that wanted to sit outside in my party. Chips and salsa arrived (complimentary) shortly after being seated. We added Queso for an additional charge. Both the salsa and Queso were tasty and went well with the fresh, warm chips. Three of us had tacos, all different and all delicious. Fresh ingredients not always found at other Mexican restaurants. My youngest ordered the quesadilla from the kids menu. Decent portion and only $3.00!! Our server was outstanding, friendly and efficient. I asked about one of the MANY tequilas on the bar and not only did she answer all my questions, she brought me a taste of one very special tequila. Way above and beyond. We were on our
bi-ennial visit to the area and look forward to returning to Modern Margarita on our next visit.

The food was good and drinks ok. We were constantly sweating on the cheap plastic seats or vinyl . The servers were about as perky as grumpy from snow white . Our reservations were not really reservations they were just a point in time for us to show up.

The restaurant had no control over the temperature settings.

Had a reservation for a bachelorette party and when we got there they didn't have our reservation anymore as we were a few minutes late so 13 of us had to walk in the rain to a different restaurant. They weren't even apologetic. I will never return nor recommend them, in fact if someone were to tell me they're going there I would talk them out of it. Terrible service, terrible people.

Great food and serving staff, loud atmosphere. Hostess staff not super professional or kind. Not big on problem
solving or customer care at the host stand.
Our main issue was we made a reservation, and were told their policy isn't really to actually keep a table Open for any reservation. It's viewed as a "call ahead" and you get put on a list once you showed up. We showed up 5 minutes before our reservation and were told we would have a 30 minute plus wait. I asked why they were on the Open Table program, if they really didn't do a reservations or keep a table Open. They shrugged their shoulders.
Food is good and wait staff was great, they really just need to work out the kinks at the hostess stand or leave the Open Table program, as we have never had an issue with this at another restaurant.
