We host one of the Financial District's best patios with ample seating for all occasions. Modus might serve Italian food, but refreshingly, no one’s anxious to label it “rustic.” Modus’s menu takes recognizable Italian classics and re-creates them as fine-dining fares.
The restaurant offers an extensive 300-bottle wine program, with seasonally selected wine by the glass. A focus on Italian, Californian and South American wines provides excellent pairing for a fine dining experience.
Behind Modus is Sam Genkov, owner of the 23-year-old District favourite Bravi Ristorante.

Our party had a wonderful experience, would highly recommend.
Looking forward to dinning , again .
Service was a bit slow but everything else was great.
Food good to very good….service was excellent….a little on the pricey side. Washrooms could use a good cleaning if I was to be brutally frank….probably go back given the overall offering and location which is walking distance from a hotel I stay at often.
A great quiet terrace with amazing food and service. Highly recommend for lunch and dinner! service by T.J. and his team makes it a best in class experience.
We had to flag down our waiter quite often. He seemed to be preoccupied with the larger groups
The price does not match the food
Enjoyed the patio - felt safe
Great food and great service. My first time here but it won’t be the last.
Had a good time
Service was absolutely amazing! Loved the staff. i didn’t realize the food was extremely over priced until i got the menu
It was a lovely evening, with a beautiful Woman by my side!
Thank you for the hospitality!

Loved it great wine and food !
The service and food were great however the host of the restaurant was not wearing a mask. This caused some distress at the table whenever the host interacted with us. This should be addressed with the restaurant immediately.
First time back out with friends 😊. Night was supposed to be rainy but we were on the patio with a good sized umbrella so no worries. Everyone enjoyed their food choices (all different and all good). Our service was a bit slow at first but we were not in a hurry anyways. Would definitely go back or recommend this restaurant for a nice evening out!
Amazing food and staff!!!
Food and drinks are way overpriced for what they are. Menu is limiting and the crowd is not the best. Will not be returning
We had a lovely patio experience. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal which included the grilled calamari, lobster tagliatelle, and steak - everything was prepared perfectly. The dessert choices were limited, but we made due.
Great date night. Excellent service and the food was delicious. Nice covered patio.
Great food and service. Will definitely come back
Was a good experience overall, but the prices seemed to be a bit inflated.
The food was delicious & the service was outstanding!
Excelente service. Our waiter was super friendly .
Loud street construction (jack hammers) out front but that is no one’s fault.
Wait staff were a little slow however we had a wonderful, leisurely meal.
Superb food. Excellent.
Service was slow, probably overworked. Food was not memorable for the price.
Very pricey for very little food, and not the greatest quality. Have had multiple other Italian restaurant experiences in the city with much better value. Cocktails at $22 each, super watered down and not well made at all. I would only come back here as a last resort.
great food, staff were very nice. Very enjoyable evening
Super welcoming and attentionate staff, I am so glad I chose to come to this venue yesterday and the food was amazing!
It was a very enjoyable experience.
Overall an mediocre restaurant, they had a limited menu and everything was a bit overpriced. The food was not that appetizing and the calamari was tough; definitely not worth the price. Their dessert wasn’t the best and their COVID guidelines were nonexistent. However, the server was very kind and they were able to make any cocktail or drink which I appreciated. I wouldn’t visit again.
Thanks for great service and great food. It's nice to see restaurants open again!
We came here for appetizers and drinks after the lunch hour rush. Were seated outside on their patio. The grilled calamari, beef carpaccio and mozzarella & prosciutto were all delicious. Excellent service as well.
Thank you for the great review Julia! So glad you enjoyed your lunch, we hope to see you again.
Very delightful service, attention to detail and well prepared & presented food. A menu with a good number of choices for any palate. Clean an good social distancing.
Food was fantastic as always and remains one of my favorite "slightly off the beaten path" financial district locations
Everything was excellent. We ate out on the patio which was nice. The food and service were above and beyond.
Modus is a real treat. The white tablecloths outside, the impeccable service and gourmet food make it an outstanding destination.
food was great but service inconsistent to hostile. the older waiter complained it was busy and spent more time hanging around a table of young women than serving other tables. for a relatively expensive dinner it was a disappointing experience.
Excellent meal and service. Great patio table and excellent covid protocol
People were super loud and the waiters were way too slow. The food was really good (I had pasta).
