    Food is absolutely delicious. The warm crab in the jar is to die for! This is a beautiful restaurant but very pricy. Expect to pay $50 for your entree. Will try their date night special on Wednesdays. Service was excellent. Thank you Ashlynn.

    Great value for 'Date Night' on a Wednesday. First time in the new location on Southport Rd and thought they did a great job designing the space. My wife had the Scallops Risotto with Lobster Veloute and I had the Pan Seared Sable Fish. Both were well presented and very flavorful. We'll be back!

    The Modern Steak date night has a better selection of meals. As you get to choose from a wide variety of steaks and sides. We had the Modern Ocean date night and we only had 2 choices of meals to choose from. I was very disappointed at that point, but then when our scallop risotto arrived, I was even more disappointed. Worst risotto we ever had. It was super watery, very bland and the scallops were overcooked. The Octopus appetizer was equally as bad. Completely tasteless. We are huge seafood lovers and it was more than a disappointing as we were so excited. Maybe it was just the Southport location?? I have gone to the 8th Ave location as well as Kensington and I was never disappointed. The only good thing was our server did a great job as did the manager who took off the food we were unhappy about. Not sure if I would go back to this location, not even for steak.

    Sunday night family special. Great presentation and fresh taste. Was not as hot as I would have liked but still very tasty. Menu is extensive with additional Waygyu menu. Waiter says very seasonal to keep seafood fresh. Will be back to try more.

    Food is really good, but everything was incredibly salty. I don’t normally say anything about salt but it was quite noticeably too salty. If the salt was tones down a bit, everything would’ve been wonderful! Steaks and seafood was perfectly cooked though!

    Appies were not as good as the first visit to the Kensington location. Octopus was more rubbery than the last time and Squid was very small portion. Mains were ok and service was great. Would not go back and pay that much for that meal again.

    4 friends met for "date night"-advertised $88/couple for 2 entrees and 1 bottle of wine. As all entrees were priced fairly similarly we assumed it would be any of them but was actually only 2 which did not appeal to everyone. So two of us had a date night and the other 2 a la carte which was fine. Our server was lovely, the food was very good and the ambiance was nice. Oh, cocktails and dessert were delicious, too.

    this is our first time, and it under our expectation, the seat was narrow which was not confortable, the watiers's service was fair, I believe there is still room to improve service, the steak was too much fatty on edge, not sure why the chef not select the lean meat, overall it is good, but will not recommend to friends

    Went there for our anniversary dinner and it was awesome!! Started with raw oysters and spanish octupus. The octopus was cooked perfectly and had a nice smoky flavour. My hubby had the ling cod and i had the whole sea bream, we both enjoyed our meals and flavours were great. Ended our meals with a Baked Alaska which they lit on fire and Flambéed. That was super yummy. Service was great and would totally recommend to go when celebrating something special as it does get in the pricey side when you order a bunch of stuff.

    This restaurant hAs no regard to portion sizes I’ve eaten at the Kensington location and always enjoyed our food I would avoid this particular location as the halibut was 1/2 the portion of the same dish in Kensington Just don’t go to this location

    We enjoyed the meal very much, and will come back again. We did an early dinner; it was relatively quiet when we got there, but the noise level increased as more people arrived. The decor does not include much to absorb sound. The serving staff were well trained and excellent.

    Had a wonderful dinner here. Service was excellent as soon as we walked in the door. and the food was very good-started witha caesar salad which wasn't too garlicky and just the right amount of dressing and lemon, the sablefish in green curry sauce was so tasty and the baked alaska for dessert was flambed at the table which was really cool. Definitely recommend going to this place for a special occassion.

    First time at Modern Ocean, but won’t be the last. Great food and even better service. Was so good we even bought gift certificates for a friends upcoming birthday. The steak was huge and very tasty. The lobster was very sweet. Everything was good. As per the name Modern Ocean, the interior decor was very modern and nice.

    We were glad to have the opportunity to try Modern Ocean. We sat in the patio for an early dinner before a concert. I realize the patio is right near the road, but I would have loved if they’d have taken the time to wash the tables. They were sticky, gritty and filthy with dirt. Just a small thing that I would they would pay attention to in the future. Another small not, the napkins left lint all over our clothes. I was wearing black and was covered in flakey white lint by the time I left. Weird! The food was good. Very flavourful. Service was also very good. Our waiter was very attentive and pleasant.

    We were celebrating 2 birthdays and had a great night at Modern Ocean. Instead of the usual Modern steak dinners, we opted for there seafood instead and it did not disappoint. Everyone tried the different fishes and everyone devoured them. Price was reasonable for eight people for the quality and portions. We wouldn't hesitate coming back.
