Our Patio table was perfect! Outside was very comfortable after sunset with misters. Aussie Jim playing mellow music, Beatles, James Taylor, etc. So relaxing!

Service was excellent, from our servers, to busboys, to even the Owner checking on us.

Food: Delicious in every way, Fresh Oysters, Grilled shrimp, Crab Louie Salads, etc.
We love this place. They have really got it together there.

Only wish we were closer. From NW Peoria, to Scottsdale can be a journey. But is always worth it!

The name says Oyster Bar, and there are plenty of those, but I always have the perfectly served and cooked filet.
A Caesar salad and brussel sprouts round out a perfect dinner.

Our fourth visit to Modern. We have always enjoyed our time spent at the restaurant. we really enjoy eating outdoors and enjoy the music on Friday and Saturday nights. A bit pricy but always quite good.

The food was pretty good. My wife’s pork chop was bland and nothing served with it. Not a great value. Ribs were good but wayyyyy over seasoned with the rub. Oysters were good! Music was awesome and atmosphere was good.

Sever was nowhere to be found after water was provided. Finally when she came to serve us, she took our order and then completely forgot to serve us one of our sides. We decided not to say anything to her and just left it alone. She did not charge us so it was no harm. Server did not ask if the bill should be split among the two credits cards; she divided the total bill in half when clearly it’s was uneven. I had a salad and my friend had a steak with sides. He had a glass of wine and I drank water. Extremely disappointed.

Overall, the food and the service were very good. Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable and gave us excellent recommendations for dinner, wine, and dessert. The biggest drawback to Modern was the noise level. There was live music, and although very good, it resonated throughout the venue. It was difficult to carry on a conversation without speaking loudly.

Our first time at this restaurant. We had a reservation, but it took a little while to be seated. No big deal as they were quite busy. Our waitress had several tables in her station and had a difficult time juggling everything - not necessarily her fault. We got our drinks relatively quickly, but our dinner order was not taken until about 45 minutes after we were seated. We were not in a hurry, so we’re tolerant of the situation that night.

The food was very good and the waitress provided dessert “on the house” for our patience. We will return and, hopefully, they will get their staffing up to the required levels to allow for a better turnaround time.

The food was good, but not up to par with similar priced restaurants. There are a lot of great dining options in this price range in this part of Scottsdale. Great staff and good service, but they are clearly struggling with having enough peopleto cover the busy hours. Great atmosphere.

I celebrated my 21st birthday at Modern last night and it was the perfect experience! My cocktail was lovely, the oysters were very fresh, and my scallop entree was life changing. They also graciously gifted me with a free birthday dessert- which made me feel very special. The live music was the cherry on top- fantastic set list and voice! We will definitely be back soon.

Had the seafood cold sampler for 95 bucks. Oysters were below average for freshness, crab was very salty like it has been left in salt water to chill , shrimp were ok. Service was average.

Friendly, Scottsdale neighborhood vibe with excellent high-end food and service. Owned by an independent operator who takes pride in delivering a top-notch experience for guests. Full-time, professional servers (Ramon gave us just the right amount of attention without being overbearing or overselling). Don't be concerned it's near a CVS and a behind a CA Pizza Kitchen. Go!

As always consistently great service and great food. I always love the fact that the management there seems to be really on top of everything.
We split the modern chop salad which is delicious …. very light dressing
Last nights entrées were the scallops and the grilled shrimp. Both are fantastic ….their seafood is always excellent, And the Grilled shrimp comes with fresh vegetables on a bed of fresh Homemade lemon pepper pasta. It is fantastic!

We always get a side of their best mashed potatoes because they really are the best!

They have a great dessert menu as well but we always have the bread putting.
Served warm and delicious with a piece of candied bacon and scoop of banana ice cream. You have to try it. As always we will be back —great drinks and a great wine list!!!
