This was our 9th visit since the opening. The steaks, ahi, crab cakes, and salads are second to none. A great dining experience that consistently delivers. Summer dinner specials are a great value too.

Overall the experience was pretty mediocre especially considering the number of options available for a nice chophouse and or oyster bar in the Scottsdale area. I will say my steak was delicious however they were missing multiple things that you look for when paying a premium price. Lack of printed oyster availability seems like an absolute must for a place highlighting their oysters. We also got passed along to two different servers once we made it apparent we were not going to be drinking alcohol which I found very rude and unprofessional. I asked where their beef was sourced from and could not get a good answer I asked if they had anything grass fed and did not get an answer I asked which oysters were the least briney and again did not get an answer. Not once did the manager come over to ask our experience was or I would have informed them however they did Speak with the couple at the table next to us a total of four times. Overall I would suggest you save your money or go to one of the other many options available out there. Also in case any management sees this please get your grease trap pumped the smell wafting through the restaurant was disgusting, and no it wasn’t from the raw bar you could smell the smell from the parking lot.

Very loud because everyone sat was pushed towards the bar. Service was excellent. Food was good but even with happy hour pricing was high. Tables are way overset. No room for anything without pushing settings to corner.

Nice place but not very busy for a Saturday night. Ownership must do much more advertising. Also should have a valet to demonstrate it's an upscale establishment and create buzz. The happy hour should be extended to 7:00. 6:00 is too early especially for people who leave work at 5:00. My wife and three of her friends would frequent for happy hour but it ends too early.

We have visited Scottsdale numerous times but this was first time dining at Modern Oysterbar and would highly recommend. Locally owned and owners very hands on to make sure customers are well taken care of. Our party had raw oysters, scallops, filet and tomahawk steak and all were very good.
We even splurged and shared their signature dessert, M-Bomb which is a chocolate cake with a chocolate mousse center that was delicious!

Server did not check in often. Asked for my steak pink after major conversation with server-long wait came out medium and sauce was barely room temp. Taste was excellent. Wine was excellent although long wait for second glass. Desert was outstanding. Hopefully will improve in all areas as we need this style restaurant in this area.

We tried this restaurant for the first time during Restaurant Week and it was very good. Unfortunately, it's almost an hour's drive from our home so it won't be on our regular rotation list but we will try to come again occasionally. The food was very good as well as the service. We sat on the outside patio where there was live entertainment. The singer was very good but did get quite loud at times. Overall, our experience was very good.

Once again we thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere at Modern Oysterbar, love the oysters! One of the few places I can enjoy west coast oysters and these were very small and fabulous to the mouth. The lobster bisque also was given an A+ with the large lumps of lobster in the perfectly prepared bisque. Had two dinners of bone-in rib-eye and according to the diners they were melt in your mouth wonderful it all went down easily. For the first time on our visits we indulge in their desserts; the bread pudding and the candy bar dessert; both won our hearts.

We met a lovely young lady being trained for wait service and she already handled everything efficiently and with a very enjoyable attitude about her. She will do very well.

My husband and I tried this restaurant for the first time. I had the scallops which were delicious- at first I thought it would not be enough as you get 3 large scallops but with the rice it was perfect. My husband had the bouillabaisse with halibut and he loved it. We ordered the roasted Brussels that were done quite well. We sat on the patio and honestly have never set on more comfortable high tops ever! Everything was perfect and we will be back!!

Oysters are oysters, and our dozen were quite nice. The fresh horseradish was great! Presentation was perfect.

Bone in Rib Eye was perfectly cooked. Magnificently seasoned. I didn't order any of the sauces. Glad I didn't. That would just detract from this gorgeous piece of beef.

My wife had the halibut. It was also expertly prepared and presented!

We ordered only one side. Roasted wild mushrooms. Also awesome!

Service was great. Food was great. Decor is very nice. Outdoor patio looks out onto a parking lot. That's the worst thing I can find to say about it.

Go there. Splurge. Have a great meal. You will NOT regret it.

While it was obvious they were having some sort of difficulty behind the scenes, the management just didn’t handle it well. I personally would have rather been turned away with an apology rather than sat and forgotten. On top of that they continued to seat guests while the problems continued. They didn’t Comp us our meal but my wife and I don’t get out much being the parents of two young children and our one chance to get out together was ruined by their inability to admit they couldn’t handle the situation

I think this is the first negative restaurant review I have ever written. This was our first time to this restaurant and really wanted to like it. One of the owners greeted us and gave us a great table. My wife ordered oysters that were below average. The dipping sauces were not good. She left half of them. We then got the smoked pork belly that was significantly overcooked. Easily the worst pork belly we have had. We didn't eat a lot of it. For our entrees, my wife ordered the halibut which was good, not great. I ordered the 10oz filet that was just perfectly cooked, but massively over seasoned. It was so overseasoned with salt and whatever other rub they put on it, the last bites were inedible.
This was a way over priced meal for food that was put together with little thought for flavor or the customer. No way that stuff should have made it out of the kitchen....especially at those prices.

We had filet mignon, creamed corn, mac and cheese, and oysters. My son ordered the half dozen oysters and unfortunately found pieces of shell in every oyster. The steaks and sides were delicious. Atmosphere was beautiful great for outdoor dining; a little bit noisy nside. The service was great, even got a free dessert of our choosing for my son's birthday.
