Modern Love has amazing vegan food! We’ve visited several times and have not been disappointed. The seitan Buffalo Wings are a must! The milkshakes are so so good! Everything is very tasty.

We really enjoyed the restaurant the food was excellent. However I wasn't very happy about the charge I received. We were a table of six so there was an automatic 20% markup for the waitstaff which is fine. However I bought one of their $30 cookbooks which she added to my bill so I was automatically charge 20% exta for the book itself , in other words I ended up paying $36 for the $30 book. This obviously is not a service fee so I was not very happy, but did not notice till after I'd left. Oh well. Buy your books separate don't ask them to put it on your ticket.

Very fine food with the kitchen more than willing to adjust the menu to accommodate dietary needs.

Mushroom appetizer was superb. Kale salad had way too much of a heavy dressing. Lasagna was more like a pudding, somewhat mushy. Too much oil in barbecue tofu ribs. May have been what we ordered, but we were disappointed.

As a meat lover I will definitely go back! I had the mac'n chews. It was great but my sister's chicken fried steak was outstanding. Have the brussel sprouts appetizer and pick out a dessert as well!! Craft drinks were perfection! My niece is a vegan from Washington DC and said her meal was an real treat!!

I have been wanting to try Modern Love for a while now and was very much looking forward to supporting a locally owned restaurant. We had a reservation and were seated promptly. Our server took our appetizer and drink orders very quickly. The appetizers arrived quite a bit of time prior to my cocktail, which was not prepared correctly and had to be returned. I ordered a Manhattan and was served an Old Fashioned. They did get it right, but not until my entree had arrived. All of the food was hit or miss on the same plate. My husband's buffalo wings were spicy and tasty but the "blue cheese" was tasteless and watery. My smoked gouda and apple plate was very pretty. The smoked gouda did not taste either or smoke or gouda but was delicious. The pickled grapes and currants were the star of the plate. The miss was the pile of extremely crumbly crackers that fell apart and made a mess. My husband's entree was the chicken fried steak. The seitan fried steak and gravy were delicious. The mashed "potato" was a tasteless lump of cauliflower that was sorely lacking in salt or any seasoning. Why not just mashed potatoes, folks? My risotto was topped with tempura battered broccolini. The broccolini had not been par-cooked, so the small ones were crunchy and nice but the large one had 2 problems, it was impossible to bite through, very tough, and it had too much tempura batter on it that had not cooked through. The risotto had clearly been prepared a long time prior and it had 2 textures of rice, grossly over cooked and hard. We will not be back.

The squash bouillabaisse was incredibly delicious and the sweet potato bisque was amazing. Went back for a second time this week to have the Almost Famous Bowl special. All the menu items and the specials are always wonderful.

Truly one of the top 10 vegetarian restaurants in the country. Amazing food. Amazing service. Affordable. We went two nights in a row, sampling a number of dishes. All were amazing. And make sure you do not leave without ordering the bourbon vanilla milkshake. It will blow your mind.

Food is tasteful, although it presents challenges for healthier choices - gluten, soy, garlic etc.
It is a busy establishment, but spending over $50 (without desserts or anything extras) it was clear that the table was needed for the next sitting. A pleasant outing felt rushed, and the “experience” of dining out lost.

The food was delicious but we felt EXTREMELY RUSHED through our meal. The server was nice but she kept pressuring us to order drinks, then appetizers, then our meals. Our meals came out in about 5 minutes which makes me wonder if they are pre-made. They were delicious but I don't understand how they were served so quickly. We were trying to enjoy a girl's night out with a friend who was visiting from Florida and we were rushed in and out so quickly, we are all very disappointed.

First visit to an all vegan restaurant, but I wish we had one locally! The food is outstanding! It is a little expensive, but felt worth it. My daughter is vegan so it was a real treat for her to have a whole menu to choose from, drinks to dessert. Portions are good sized - we had to take half of our entrees home. The Fried Mozzarella is to die for! Service is professional, but almost too fast. We felt a little rushed and would rather have a little time between courses. The tables are tiny so there is no room to keep extra dishes on it. The decor is modern, of course, and lovely. There were couples, groups of friends, and families enjoying dinner. We would go back any chance we've got!

Food was very good but I was a bit disappointed that we could not get food that was oil free other than polenta which I don't care for, nor is it a meal. Maybe it was just because it was happy hour but the server didn't really give us any no oil options, just low oil options. I was told that no oil options would be provided upon request so I'm not sure how to go about that. Maybe that could be better explained? Other than that is was very good. I will definitely go back and maybe try again at their regular time for no oil options.

Pretty good but lacked tastiness - not enough salt in Mac and shred. Not enough Mexican zip in chimichanga.

The only reason I rated this 4 stars was we waited 20
minutes for our table even though we had a reservation. Otherwise, everything was awesome.

Food is almost like real thing. I like meat. I was forced to come reluctantly but the food was rich and filling. The portions were big. I’d eat there again if I have a friend who needs vegan food. Don’t know if I would go on my own... but maybe.... I will crave the food in a few weeks and go again. Time will tell.

I took a friend visiting from town to Modern Love. She loved it. The food was terrific. Personally I love that I can eat the food and not worry about having ingredients that will make me sick. The pumpkin cheese cake was fun to try and it was delicious. I highly recommend Modern Love.

This is my first experience with a vegan restaurant. I loved the options, the menus was clearly marked with glueten free options, the waitress was knowledgeable of the menu, and was very pleasant. I ordered the macaroni and cheese entre and it was delicious! I can't say enough about the restaurant. I will definitely be back!

Very satisfied with quality and variety. "Cauliflower Wings" are an absolute delight. Modern Love is working hard to merge the aesthetic of good food with the ethos of veganism. Sustainable, healthful, and non-exploitative magic happens here!
