With a name like “Oyster Bar” one would expect some great oysters. Very disappointed with selection and servers answer to my questioning the lack there of. I know a bit about oysters having lived in the Pacific Northwest. So... you can’t tell me California oysters are PNW! Completely underwhelmed with the seafood. I realize it’s AZ, but other restaurants seem to acquire much better seafood. As for the service- our server went missing for 20 minutes. He seemed to have an excuse for every mishap. We ordered the Brussel sprouts to accompany our meal. They never made it to our table. As we finished our mussels, our server asked if we’d like our seafood platter, as it would take 15 minutes to assemble. As he finished his sentence it was delivered to our table. ??? Clearly some issues with orders.
Sadly, I won’t be headed back, as there better places to my spend time and money. Below is a photo of the seafood platter. Not very appealing.

My $65 steak was over cooked. They brought out a new one, but it was tasteless. The ambiance and service was impeccable.

The restaurant week menu seemed ok. The onion soup seemed salty to me and the salmon portion was smaller than I expected for the price. The taste was just ok, though the small potatoes and brussel sprouts that accompanied it were good. The highlight of my meal was the butterscotch creme brulee. It was outstanding! My husband enjoyed his Caesar salad, flat iron steak and key lime pie. He requested the fries be crispy and the kitchen did that very well. The service was very good and the restaurant is very nicely appointed. The food came out of the kitchen at a good pace and we didn't feel rushed. Part of the reason I wouldn't recommend this is that we live almost an hour away and I didn't think the food was worth that long of a drive.

What a pleasant surprise. The food was truly excellent. The service was just as good. The owner came around to check up on us and really wanted feedback - which was only positive. The ambiance and design was different and interesting. It's a pretty new place so I hope they continue at this level. We'll definitely be back.

Exception meal. Best oysters in the valley. Surprisingly wonderful french onion soap for America, no less an oyster bar. Key lime pie and espresso cheese cake the best. Excellent wine list and extremely knowledgable recommendations. All the service was perfect. Noise level higher than the food deserves but not intolerable. Went as a Restaurant Week experiment. Left as a regular.

Very good place for a fancy night out. Service was excellent. Food, very good. Only reason I didn't give five stars is because I had the Halibut ($40), and it was a little overcooked on one side, making it very dry, so for the price, that was disappointing. Everything else was excellent.

Absolutely spectacular! Our waiter, CE, was tremendous and gave us excellent descriptions and menu guidance.

This restaurant is very repeatable and ranks among the best restaurants Scottsdale has to offer! The Halibut, Shrimp, and Mussels were delicious and the Key Lime Pie was amazing!

Bravo!

First time here... The restaurant was very clean, the Ambiance was nice, and our server was extremely attentive. However, we were expecting a little bit more variety and options when it comes to oysters, as the name of the restaurant gives a perception they would be more extensive (having oyster bar in the actual name).

Oysters were good, although a little pricey at $22 per half-dozen. We also ordered the lamb which was perfect!

We gave Modern a try for our anniversary - the prix fixe menu was a great opportunity. Is it Steak 44? Nope. But did my hubby think his filet was great? Yep. Server was absentee at times, drink prices are on the high side ($15 martinis?),and it might sound weird but I missed not having classic white tablecloths! Appreciated vegetarian option (not told to order sides like at S44) - if you spruce up the Caesar salad I would have been happier.

MODERN OYSTERBAR CHOPHOUSE was one of the best restaurants I have been to in a very long time. The food was incredible and the service was impeccable. You can tell that everything was incredibly fresh. Our steaks were cooked to perfection. The waiter knew when to come over and ask how everything was, and when to step back and let my husband and I have a great date night. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. We will be back!
