The cucumber sangria was refreshing and a perfect way to start dinner. Loved the watermelon beet salad. Wanted to lick the bowl of the pea risotto and shared the lemon rhubarb cheesecake and snickers pie. Capped off the night with a chocolate martini. From the creative pairing, beautiful plating and delicious food Modern Love impresses even my non-vegan partner. Meeting Isa was the highlight of a perfect evening. Modern Love is a dining destination that won’t max out your credit card.

My only complaint was the ample serving size and my inability to stop eating in time to ask for a box. It was just to yummy to quit.

Great food! Even for people who aren’t vegan or vegetarian. I loved this food before I was vegetarian, now I’ve transitioned to being vegan for about a year now. I’m a huge fan of how they just make good food and don’t try to make it what it’s not. It’s just delicious!

The ONLY negative thing that I can say about our experience at Modern Love is that I didn't have more capacity in my stomach to try a lot more of the delicious foods! Oh! My! Gosh! The nachos were incredible. INCREDIBLE! I was with my daughter who had just flown in from Minneapolis and she said it was the highlight of her trip to Nebraska! The food was so good. Our server, (I wish I could remember his name), was so nice and attentive and helpful. I can't wait to go back. The prices are extremely reasonable. A 5 star, A+ experience AND we got to see the owner!! :)

Delicious food! I am a big fan of Isa's cookbooks, for the recipes and her wit, so I am absolutely delighted that she has a restaurant here in Omaha. The Midtown Crossing location is convenient and spacious, with plenty of parking options. The servers are always fun and informative - and if you're lucky, Isa herself, may serve you! Modern Love debunks all the silly vegan stereotypes and myths...and proves that veganism is vibrant, romantic, comforting, and mouth-watering delicious (all at the same time)!

I enjoyed the barbecue tofu with greens that was gf, loved the sauce and I ordered a side of the charred portabella, so delicious! My husband had the “cheese”burger with fries and liked it very much as well! For dessert we have chocolate malt and the campfire shake, amazing taste of s’mores in a shake! Loved everything and can’t wait to return!

My wife and I enjoyed everything about our meal at Modern Love. The new location is a significant upgrade over the old location with an upscale modern feel. We started with the avocado garlic bread, which was delicious. I enjoyed the burger and we both shared the snickers pie for dessert. The only downside to the evening was our waiter. He was less than responsive throughout the evening. Our appetizer was served without any plates to eat it on and the water jug was provided without any glasses. Aside from the waiter we enjoyed our visit.

We went to Modern Love because we had heard good things about it and had some friends in town that are not not strict vegetarians. We ate there on a Saturday night. We found parking right at the door. Our server was very knowledgeable and attentive. The food took a reasonable time to prepare and it was plated with a very nice presentation. I am a meat lover and I had their signature “burger”. If I didn’t know I would have thought it was beef. It was delicious. I would like to try most of the items on the menu. Everyone enjoyed their meal and agreed to put it on our “go to” list.

This was my first time back at Modern Love since they moved to a new location. The location is great and the parking was not difficult on a Thursday night. The ambience is wonderful. The service is friendly and attentive. My husband had trouble with the parking meter card scanner, and Isa went out there with quarters. That is above and beyond!

I love that the food is fresh and rich with flavors. The brussels sprouts starter was wonderful, as was the fried mozzarella. However, the seitan on the shawarma plate was overly salted and not that pleasant to eat, which is why I give the food three stars this time.

We had been wanting to make the 90 mile trip to this restaurant for some time after purchasing the chef/owner’s last book. Expectations were high...and were exceeded.
The seitan buffalo wings were scrumptious; the texture was perfect. And the chickpea cutlet sandwich was sublime. My wife had the nachos for her app...very tasty. Her choice of entree was the Mac and Shews which she loved.
Nice ambiance and a most helpful server made the experience delightful and one that we will revisit in the near future. I want to try everything on the menu...it’s that good!

I would recommend it only because it’s the only vegan restaurant in town. I know people who have consistent good experiences here, but i just haven’t been impressed since the location moved. i’ve gotten cold food, and food that was just overall not good. Which surprised me because i used to love the food here! Specifically my boyfriend ordered a burger and it was just... ridiculously made. Cheese sauce dripping down the sides, and impossible to hold. Personally i just expect a sandwich to be able to be picked up. Lately it just hasn't been worth it, But i keep coming back because i expected the issues to just be isolated. Hopefully their new brunch will make it worth the trip.

I really enjoyed the food we ordered, although the Mac n' Chews is not as good as the hype. Lasagna was very good, but would have liked it better if they replaced the faux protein with spinach or fried eggplant. Unidentifiable meat subs are not necessary. Unfortunately, my tummy had some issues later. Not used to vegan options I guess. Prices were also high IMO. Worth a try.

We took our vegan daughter-in-law to Modern Love. Surprisingly she only tried the portabella steak salad. I tried the seitan shawarma and it was very good. Best fake meat I've ever had! The poutine was okay, but the gravy reminded a couple of us of french onion soup, a little too sweet. My wife had the nachos and absolutely loved them! She wants to go back just for them. I would definitely go back and try other items on the menu!
