We love this local place for us. The food is always delicious. Very helpful staff however our particular waiter seemed overwhelmed and a little bit short with us. He seem to of had a very large party and didn’t really give us the personal time but we also were able to dine Without rushing to the large party was already ordered We had to wait for our food which was not the problem

Our server was very professional and knowledgeable. We arrived at 5:30 to avoid noise. We were pleasantly surprised by the guitar player. This was our first visit and the food was spectacular. We will definitely return.

I went to Modern for the seafood and because they had availability. I had a dozen oysters that were SUPER delicious! Plump, fresh and tasty! Some of the best I've had. I had the scallops and that dish was great but the fries, omg, the fries! Perfect crisp on the outside but tender tater on the inside. I don't know how they do it but they were perfect.

I always enjoy dining at Modern. Our waitress was a hoot and we enjoyed her attention. My NY strip was good but not great. Everything else was delicious and welcome.

Jumbo shrimp were not jumbo and extremely over priced for the size. They were tough and chewy.
Mussels were below what you would expect at a place that’s got more seafood on the menu than anything else. They were so small. We get better ones at Maggianos. I expected that level of mussels.
Steak was cooked great but zero seasoning or flavor. It was bland and disappointing.
The bottle of wine we got was warm but a few ice cubes helped.
The sides were amazing.
Unfortunately I don’t think we will be returning unless they step up their seafood game.

Met my son for happy hour. He wanted to try the burger so I decided to have it too. I usually go back and forth between the bone in filet and pork chop. It was excellent just like everything else at Modern. Kats not bad either.

This was my first time dining at Modern Oyster Bar and I truly enjoyed everything. The food, drinks, atmosphere and service. Me and my date both agreed that we will be returning. We ordered a dozen oysters and they were so delicious we could have ordered a dozen more, but didn't want to spoil my appetite for my seared scallops.

My wife’s scallop entree was terrible. Scallops were mushy and the sauce had an odd flavor. Shrimp cocktail was over cooked, very tough. My $ 62.00 NY Strip was over grilled. Asked for medium rare, came medium well. This restaurant is off our list.

We've had lunch in the past and enjoyed it. They don't wear mask if that's a concern.
Was just Ok, for the price I can think of other Steak houses that are better. The side dishes weren't that great nor the presentation.

Loved our "Early New Year's" dinner on the patio sitting next to the fire pit. Service by Ramone was excellent. My salmon was moist and tender and I loved the house salad dressing. Also, Hubby's rib eye was excellent - done just as he requested. He too loved the salad and also his au gratin potatoes.

Wonderful relaxed experience for 2. Food was good, service was exceptional. C.E. was our waiter and he was wonderful to help serve our food and introduce us to the restaurant which this was the first visit. It will clearly not be our last. We went early so there was no crowd and there was some family diners with young children but still the ambiance and the noise was quite comfortable. The music also was much better than we haven't counted at other places with a nice mix enriching our dining experience. Look forward to visiting again.

Loved our waitress! Energetic and funny. From New Hampshire. It was Christmas evening so lots of people. Considering the volume, the food was great. Steaks well cooked but the asparagus over done. Definitely will return.

We wanted a dinner out for Christmas. We’ve been to this restaurant before so there were no surprises. Food was great and service was mostly great (in spite of us overhearing that they were short a server). If you have a steak, add the lobster tail! It was very good.

Oysters Rockefeller amazing! Cocktails amazing! Server was very friendly and helpful, Until things didn’t go well. Entrée’s were served cold, the accompaniments were also served cold, the cilantro and chili butter had chunks of cold butter in it. Sent the butter back three times!! Server seem frustrated with us, not sure if this was a kitchen issue or food runner issue. But at these prices having food served warm should not be an issue.

Merry Christmas, thank you for your comments, I was able to talk to your table and extend my apologies, I'm sorry that my sincere apologies, and comped dinner and side dishes were not shared in your review. Not an excuse for your meal, but you were compensated fairly. Yes, the server was dejected and disappointed, because we care about your experience and your visit.

A wonderful experience at Modern Oysterbar Chophouse. We loved every moment of our time at Modern. We were greeted promptly, seated immediately, provided another greeting from the wait staff, drinks ordered, review of the menu and specials of the day. Appetizers were fabulous - Blue Points. Entrees were outstanding - lamb, filet and prime rib. And the dessert - cream cheese chocolate cake roll. Soooooo gooood! Our server - Alyssa was the best!

This was a true definition of “fine dining.” Great Food. Great People. Thank you for making our Christmas Day meal one we will remember. We will definitely come back and most importantly, we are going to be sharing our recommendations with our friends and family.

Modern Oysterbar Chophouse - Thank You!

Had rained all day and restaurant had an odd and wet odor. Looked like the ceiling was leaking in one spot and the lighting was constantly flickering all night.
Tried the scallops and they were horrible! Mushy and in a terrible, soupy sauce. No fresh spring vegetables as stated on menu. Servers were great. This was our 5th visit and sadly won’t go back after this one.

Overall, the restaurant has a good atmosphere and enjoyable food for a nice dinner date. However, when it comes to upscale Scottsdale restaurants, there's a certain level of service that's expected with menus composed of $22+ entree salads and $48-$65 steaks. At prices like this, you're not simply paying for the food, but an overall experience that relies on service that matches the pricing. My two major concerns were that we (party of 2) were seated a full 25 minutes after our scheduled reservation time. It's not the end of the world by any means and not in the hostess' full control, but obviously begs the questions, "What's the purpose of a timed reservation if it's going to be 25 minutes late?" Certainly, if I showed up to a restaurant 25 minutes late, my reservation would likely no longer be honored. Beyond that, we were offered bread and butter after we ordered our drinks, but 20+ minutes passed before I had to remind our waiter of the missing bread. Again, is this the end of the world? No. But, receiving bread just 3 minutes before entrees arrive is not what you'd expect from a Scottsdale restaurant at this price point.
A point of praise, though, is that the waiter was quite friendly to us and acknowledged our anniversary with a complimentary dessert. We appreciated this touch!
