    Husband and I had a fantastic meal at the Modern Barn! I ordered the Milanese and my husband ordered Calamari. Both were extremely delicious! Summer cocktail menu was also delicious. Will be going back soon.

    Food was fine when it finally arrived. We were seated at 6:30 and did not get food until 7:40. The restaurant was not full, and if they were understaffed, then they should not accept reservations.
    Modern BarnResponded on February 25, 2024
    It is impossible to be fully staffed in a resort town during the busiest week of the year, when an additional ten thousand people come to Bethel, and in four weeks time we encounter six months of shoulder season. Your comments were addressed yesterday via feedback on Square. To make another comment on another forum is intentional and malicious and designed to harm small family businesses.

    Their Barata salad is consistently the best ever. Throughout the entire winter I cannot find better tomatoes anywhere!

    The service was great and some of the dishes were really good, but it was an hour wait for food after ordering and some of it just wasn’t worth the money. The rice in the poke bowls tasted a day old and it barely had any tuna in it.
    Modern BarnResponded on February 22, 2024
    We are sorry that management or the kitchen was not made aware of this problem while you were at the restaurant so we could have addressed this while you were in the restaurant. Unfortunately during busy vacation weeks an hour wait for food is very common when you dine at the prime time dinner hour of 6-7pm. We are disappointed to hear of this situation as it does not come anywhere near the experience of other guests. We hope you will visit us again

    First time visitors last night! We had a great dinner :). We had our son with us, he loved his buttery pasta and Oreo ice cream, and we enjoyed wine, steak and a pasta dish. Everyone was friendly and the food came out great! We will be back!

    Not for food lovers. Prices make you think this is elevated food but it is very average. Not a repeat for us. Better off going to one of the local breweries.
