I am the only vegan in our two couples. The non vegans love the food as much as I do
Just wish it wasn’t so expensive

Outstanding vegan treat! From cocktails to dessert, everything was colorful and delicious. My carnivore husband even enjoyed it!

What’s the deal with your seasoning on the Mac and Cheeze? It’s getting worse over time. Completely bland and under-seasoned. The cauliflower was not seasoned at all. It tasted like nothing.

The reason this is frustrating is because it’s getting worse over time. This dish used to be a mainstay that I wold recommend to non-vegans to try to show them how good vegan food could be. Now I’d be embarrassed to recommend this. SEASON YOUR FOOD.

Also, your service is just lacking. Everybody is friendly, but the food timing is just so strange. Stop bringing out entrees one by one over the course of 10 minutes. Nobody is going to dive into their dinner while their dining companions wait for theirs. This type of service would not be accepted anywhere else, why should I accept it there? I’ve never spent less than $100 on a ticket, match the quality of service to the price.

I was in town from out of state visiting for a concert. The week before, I was looking for highly-rated vegetarian/vegan places (I'm vegetarian), and Modern Love showed up in my search. The menu looked great so I went to check out their hours, and I noticed that a reservation appeared to be expected. Making the reservation was easy and painless. When we got there, I was surprised that it didn't feel super "packed" or loud. It's small but spacious, and I loved the color scheme and logo. I got the soup of the day and the chicken fried steak. My partner ordered the Mac and Shews, and we split the dessert cheesecake. Everything was fantastic. We made the reservations for early in the evening, expecting service to be slower or more relaxed, but our food was prompt and delicious. The servers were attentive and friendly. The ambiance was very pleasant. A+ would eat there again.

Pathetic effort on the part of management. Has a excellent space to work with and no clear objective for providing a good dining experience. Seating was painfully uncomfortable. The waitress was minimally committed to doing a good job. The food was disappointing and seemed to be providing the least amount of effort possible to come close to being as described on the menu. Half-way through the meal I ordered a pomegranate lemonade to try and add something to this meal. No go. A small ice filled glass of reddish liquid, virtually tasteless until the last sip and then lemonade, pomegranate hardly.
The friend I went with had highly recommended Modern Love after dining at another location several times. She was thoroughly disappointed by this experience and wondered how things could change so drastically. I really hate paying for a token effort. It feels like throwing money on the ground and just walking away.

My wife and I have eaten at Modern Love on numerous occasions, and as two vegans, we love that it's an incredible option in Omaha. Each time we've been, we've been impressed, which means we have high standards. This dinner, however, was very poor. The staff was great, the service, etc—everything but the food.

My wife ordered the "Chicken" and Waffles sandwich special and it was incredibly sad and incomplete. It was a dry waffle with a piece of seitan between it. There was a tiny dollop of some kind of sauce and bland eggplant bacon. It was so incredibly dry and bland and not at all what we've come to expect from Modern Love.

I had the Chick'n Fried Steak which itself was great, but the collard greens were absolutely terrible. In the past, they've clearly been cut, blanched, and I assume sauteed. What I instead had was what seemed to be raw collard greens placed under the rest of my food, which then slightly "cooked' due to the heat from above. They were large pieces and were wilted and very dark green, which clearly indicates they were not cooked or not prepared correctly.

Everything basically felt like nobody was giving much care or attention to the food. We were shocked at how poorly things seemed prepared, as in the past things have been fantastic.

We also did have the Sriracha Honee Cauliflower Wings, and those were great. They were so great that they actually helped accentuate the poor nature of the entrees.

We'll be back, but not sure when as that mean was such a letdown and a massive bummer and not at all what we've come to expect from Modern Love.

Very good food! I love going to Modern Love because my girlfriend is vegan and so she can eat anything on the menu! My girlfriend is also gluten free and so it would be nice if there were more gluten free options available, like a gluten free bun. I got the chicken and waffles which was really amazing :) I think that it should permanently be on the menu and what could make it better would be if it had a maple syrup because it was a little dry. Keep up the good work!

Have been to Modern Love several times. The food and service is always excellent. We went tonight with friends who were not vegan and they really enjoyed it. Once we got seating changed from the ones where you are elbow to elbow with another party to a booth we were set to enjoy the evening. Need a way to reserve a booth as I don't like crowd seating. We all had shakes and shared nachos and avocado toast. All the entrees were great! The cheesecake was the only thing that was a little off, but the almond joy tart was really good. Will continue to recommend to friends!

Great quality and presentation, attentive service, upscale but approachable ambiance. Great place to bring your meat eating friends and family to get more hip to plant based eating. The food is so good you can’t tell it’s vegan!

Another great meal. So glad soup is back on the menu. The zucchini soup was fabulous. It was the perfect balance between end of summer and early fall. The new oyster mushroom appetizer was incredible. The sage pesto and the creamy cauliflower were delicious with the mushrooms. The honey, sriracha cauliflower tasted so good. Also had the butternut squash risotto. The rice was amazing but it was the unique toppings (tempura broccolini, roasted squash, sautéed onions, radicchio) that made this dish. Can’t wait to eat there again.

Cool modern vibe, a bit noisey but not so much that you can't have a casual conversation. Food has never disappointed, the menu descriptions are pretty spot on, and the friendly, knowledgeable wait staff are great for advice.

Our server, Amethyst, was amazing. She helped my omnivore husband find something he enjoyed on the menu, and recommended the risotto to me which was delicious. The only downside was the mint julep. I’m from the south and love me a good julep, but this one had way too much mint syrup and tasted like the green NyQuil. My husband’s mule, on the other hand, was delicious.

Thrilled to have Modern Love in Omaha! We can have anything on the menu instead of “making it work”. Plant based food choices !
The food was so good - service excellent and they also take reservations! We will be back! You won’t be disappointed!

The food tonight was exceptionally good. The honey, sriracha cauliflower was delicious. The nachos were, like always, so good. The moussaka stuffed pepper special was stuffed with eggplant, zucchini and other veggies. It was topped with fried potatoes and it was served on top of a red sauce. It was amazingly tasty. The very best thing was the gnocchi special. The pillowy gnocchi with fried mozzarella were served on a red veggie sauce. It was fabulous. Our dinner tonight might have been the best meal we have ever eaten at Modern Love, and we eat there several times a month.

I love this restaurant so much for so many reasons. Everything was extremely delicious. The ambience and service were great. Our favorite was the rhubarb watermelon drink. Like a mojito but a bazillion times more delicious and refreshing. I’m only sorry that I don’t get to come more often due to living out of town!
