Really lovely place. I usually don’t like vegan restaurants that try to do vegan versions of non vegan dishes, but they pull it off exquisitely and the food is delicious. Took a bunch of non vegan friends and everyone loved it. Highly recommend!

Food was great. Service was not. Felt rushed and unfriendly waitress. We were a table of four and when a member of our party finished eating, not only was his plate cleared, but a dessert menu given to him while three of his finished eating our dinner. One word answers from waitress regarding her opinion when we asked. Such a shame because I like the food but I hate feeling like we are being rushed out. I don't want to order my meal within five minutes of being seated. It was busy when we sat down but within 45 mins there were a ton of empty tables. Would not go back due to the service.

Vegan Nirvana ♥️ Don’t miss any opportunity to dine at Modern Love. The menu so small but full of quality. We were beguiled into having multiple courses, licking every plate clean and order seconds of our tasty cocktails. We didn’t want to leave!

Food and decore were great! Staff were not very friendly and we felt rushed. I stated that it was to celebrate a birthday and nothing was done or suggested. Don't think I'll be returning or recommending this place.

Speaking from an organizer’s perspective I highly recommend this place. It satisfied my whole party’s taste buds (from meat eater to vegan). The wait staff wasn’t too fussy and we had more than enough time to enjoy our experience. It had a neighborhood diner vibe but upscale which will definitely bring me back.

All around YES! The food, beverage, decor and service were all excellent. The beverage program is exceptionally good. I'm dreaming of coming back for the oyster calamari appy, it was so good. For main dishes we enjoyed the seitan shawarma plate and also the hen of the woods piccata, both were delightfully composed: Texture, flavor, comfort, acid, heat. It was all there. Our server, Chi, was adorable, professional and all around wonderful. Thank you for a terrific experience.

The best food, and normally amazing service. Our server wasn't great, and I wonder if it was since gratuity was already included, he just didn't even try. It was clearly a birthday dinner but there was not a drop of cheer from this dude.

Fabulous Vegan creations with organic food! It was packed on Monday night - at 6:30!!! The ingredients are on the menu and both times I was there food was fabulous - even for my 1st time non-Vegan nephew! My favorite are the appetizer toasts!!! SO happy to know this is available.

Every time we come, we always say we need to come here more. It’s about a 30 min trek for us.. worth it!
I loved Isa’s cookbook and the restaurant does kit disappoint. I think this is our 4th time here since it opened and first for brunch. I would try each item if I could. They all looked good. It’s busy so make a reservation during peak hours

Waitress was rude af. I’ve come here on a few occasions and every time I feel ignored by the waiters and like they’re avoiding my table so they have to do less work. Feels like there’s an underlying morale problem and it’s apparent in their bad service.
That aside the food is good - giant portions so don’t over order unless you want food for a week.

Loved the food! The prices were on point and the quality was wonderful. Great service and the menu (like all good places) was small enough to make each dish special without being limited.

Amazing vegan food! The mozzarella is to die for (I'm still thinking about it). Mac and shews were delicious as well. Was underwhelmed by the fried tofu entree (a bit basic, plus the breading came off easily). The drinks were really well done as well. Service was attentive and food came out pretty quickly. It is a bit loud in the space, but not unbearable. Also good spacing between tables. Would 100% go back.

Really quite incredible meal. Fig and bacon ricotta toast is so delicious and a must. Brooklyn fried tofu is genius with mashed potatoes you can't miss.

Amazing birthday dinner for my wife! The Mac n "cheese", nachos, piccata, literally everything was prepared to perfection. And don't forget about the ice cream sundae, a wonderful ending to our meal!

My boyfriend and I went to Modern Love for our 5th anniversary and we had the most lovely time. Every single thing we ordered was delicious and the service was phenomenal. Will definitely be going back! (I highly recommend the vegan chicken pot pie, it was a special but if you have the opportunity then definitely get it!)

The hostess was very understanding and lovely when I mentioned my friend would be late - she changed the reservation for me and got me a seat at the bar to wait. Bartender was friendly and server was so helpful with the menu. Everything was delicious (Korean bowl, Mac & shews, pinot noir, egg cream), and even though we were the last ppl there before closing, we never felt rushed. Will definitely be back to try the penne a la vodka with meatballs!

To die for! Half of our party of six is not vegan and they enjoyed the food as much as the vegans did! That's a huge win in my book. Also, I don't think I'll ever stop talking about their mac & shews. Everything was excellent, though. From the mushroom calamari (best calamari I've EVER had) to the Brooklyn Fried Tofu and the peanut butter brownie to finish off the meal--everything was delicious and beautiful. I can't wait to go back and try everything else on the menu!

I don't write reviews and I'm the furthest thing from vegan, but this was an incredible experience! I recommend it highly, especially if your date is vegan or vegetarian! We had the Fig & Bacon Ricotta Toast (I'm getting this again), Mozzarella Sticks, the Mac and Shews, and the Seitan Schwarma. Bring your appetite! We couldn't finish!

Good vegan comfort food in a lovely setting but everything seemed a bit extra salty or rich or sweet. Skip the gimmicky “agave wine” cocktails. They were sickly sweet and basically made with fortified wine.

My first meal at Modern Love was just that! A fig ricotta toast was superb with the best ricotta I've ever had!
The meals were delicious and well designed for healthy eating and the staff was friendly and helpful. I will be back!

I absolutely LOVED Modern Love. I will be the first to say that a vegan restaurant would not be my first choice but came here with a friend who is vegan. I haven't had a meal this good in a LONG time and will definitely be back.
