This was my first time to the new location in Midtown Crossing - I love the new space - modern and cozy. I had the Nachos as an entree and it was so creative, delicious and filling. In addition, I tried the passion fruit mojito- I could drink those all day. Lastly, I had the apple tart for dessert. As usual, it was amazing - and sized to share. Isa is super friendly and her staff is knowledgeable and helpful. Go try this restaurant!!!

Modern Love had been recommended by several friends so we ate there for my daughter’s 45th birthday. When the server learned my daughter had an allergy to citrus, the owner came to the table and they consulted about what accommodations they could make for her allergy. That was very helpful and we both enjoyed our meals with no allergic reactions.

Grilled artichoke was obviously made in advance and reheated. Burrito bowl was good. Portabella Steak salad was all arrugala. Apple dessert was very dry. Could not even cut it with a fork.

The service was awful however our server was nice
I’m a regular and I was treated poorly the person who brought out our food to the table was rude didn’t even look at us just dropped the plates and left
My pasta was uncooked and I asked to get it changed the server I had was nice about it
And for some reason my meal was children’s size I brought this up to the servers attention but nothing was done

Overall I’m very disappointed I’ve been going to modern love since it was a tiny restaurant

Now modern love got sort of big and their customer service has gone down drastically

As a regular I expect to be treat it like a person not someone they are annoyed to serve.

Isn't it time to stop disguising vegetables as meat. Just do vegetarian—not meatless imitations of American comfort food. We're all grown up now and will eat our carrots with relish. To hide behind a clutter of puns and to limit the effort to options we are not likely to fee challenged by seems self destructive.

But let's talk about portion sizing. All of our dishes could easily have feed two—lots of customers leaving with clamshell cartons. Isn't it clear that quantity can't make up for a lack of quality. Indeed, large portions (in dog dishes no less) cheapen the food—reducing its value. This is particularly true of a vegetarian menu where flavors may repeat or overlap. Boredom sets in.

I would suggest the owners look at what's left of Cedric Hartman's original lighting scheme for V Mertz: very flattering low light levels with elegant highlights. It seems there might be enough lighting equipment but no one has take the time to aim the instruments. Relative gloom is slashed open by harsh LED track lighting. Working out the balance of ambient and spot lighting could make this a much more intimate place. And perhaps you could make out what you're eating.

Omaha really needs this kind of place and the crowd is young and right-minded—the kind of people who will make this a hip scene if they care to.

I like the new location. A lot roomier than the old location. Delicious vegan food. Good enough for me to consider going full vegan. The Chickpea Bacon Ranch burger beat a beef burger any day. There was a nice low light ambience which is relaxing for me. Service was great. Our waitress was friendly and helpful with menu info. I also had the warmed over apple tart. Melted in my mouth. I will be returning.

Had the special 4 course meal with the wine pairing and it was amazing food! Loved the date wrapped in eggplant bacon and the lobster mac was the best. The wine was just too much and I went home drunk. Next time there is a pairing, probably make it cheaper and serve smaller portions of wine. Also, server had never done a meal/ wine pairing and was not good at timing it. At one point, I had 4 glasses of various wines on the table and couldn't finish before the next course.

Modern Love is a glorious gem. Isa has done an absolutely superb job of crafting the menu and decore. The food tastes amazing, the presentation is creative and appealing, and the atmosphere is comfortable while maintaining a funky classy vibe. The staff are fabulous and on top of it all, it is 100% vegan yet capable of being undetected as such by carnivores. Book your online reservation, it's super easy. We travel to Omaha just to dine here because Isa is the queen of vegan delights!

Modern Love is a vegan restaurant in the heart of beef country but you'd never know it with how tasty the menu items are. The modern burger, pizza burger and potato salad are outrageously delicious! The Mac and Shews is the vegan version of traditional mac and cheese and is a comfort food. It's so good!! The atmosphere is hip but comfortable for any age group. There isn't a children's menu with traditional offerings (except for fries) so this restaurant's menu might be best for teens and adults if kids are super picky.

We had a great time for our date night. i asked for a table by the windows and maybe a candle. I wasnt really expecting the candle as I had never seen any there before. It was a nice surprise that there was a little flameless candle on our table. Everything was great as always and it is the best food around. It was my husbands first time there and he was in heaven with the food. Thanks

Modern Love is a fantastic dining experience with new textures, tastes, and pleasures. I had the Hen Of the Woods mushroom served with a creamy pesto sauce. The flavors were familiar, but the texture of the mushroom is unlike anything else you can find dining out in Omaha or Lincoln. The veggie burger patty is meaty and chewy, and served up in delicious new ways. Pizza Burger? OMG yes please! With classic delicacies like the rich fried "mozz" balls and spicy-tangy buffalo wings, Modern Love makes me wonder why anyone consumes animal products at all.
