We love this place and have decided it is our “special occasion” spot. We got the same table both times, on the patio right near the music. It is the perfect date night spot!

This is a very attractive restaurant with a fun vibe. The service was excellent. Professional and well timed.
The food was mediocre at best. The Crab cakes had little flavor. Doughy and only a hint of crab flavor. The Grilled shrimp had such a strong Iodine flavor that we had to send them back. Replaced them with the chicken dinner. It was fine but the corn side dish that comes with it was made from either frozen or canned corn. Very tough and flavorless. Side Salads are delicious.
The restaurant handled the shrimp issue well but it was overall a disappointing evening.

Friday date night. She said it was best filet she has had. The bone in filet is the best steak in town. Fried oysters are awesome! I think I might be back if Kat gives the ok. Barkeeps are the best. I’ll take Modern over oceans, Maestros, Eddie’s or Dominicks any day.

This place is becoming a Thanksgiving tradition. I get the turkey and the Mrs. gets the scallops. The oysters were delicious to get us started and the fresh crab meat in the crab cakes were superb. We enjoyed ourselves.
It was crowded but there is plenty of space between tables.

Went for Thanksgiving. Noticed they were one of the few open for Thanksgiving and they had a Thanksgiving entree special. Service was great, patio is beautiful. Sat next to the fire and the heat lamps were perfect. Food was very expensive. Had the grilled shrimp, good but strange sauce, shrimp good. Husband had the prime rib, excellent, daughter had the lobster, great! No crab legs available now. The key lime pie was amazing. Excellent service. I would go back perhaps after Meatflation calms down.

Our experience was just the latest in many wonderful times at MCH&OB. Our hostess and server were attentive and helpful. The food was delicious and plentiful. Even had enough leftover to make a turkey sandwich today. Saw quite a few happy families enjoying their holiday meal. Well done, MCH&OB!

We selected Modern Oysterbar for our vacation Thanksgiving dinner and it was excellent. From the warm greeting by all the staff members to the generous drinks to the taste just like home turkey dinner, you made our night perfect and delicious! We'll definitely come back next time we're in town to try the regular menu.

Thanksgiving at Modern. Greeted by family owner operators who always make us feel so welcome. It had been over a year since we have been in but felt comfy as usual. Love the caesar salad and bread to start. The entrees we had, scallops and the pasta dish with chicken, were both tasty. The steaks are also well prepared but we needed a change of pace. Delicious pumpkin pie was a nice holiday treat. Very attentive and friendly service. Leisurely meal. Prices typical for an upscale north Scottsdale restaurant.

Where do I begin .... this restaurant was our pick for our Thanksgiving dinner. We had never been here but are huge fans of seafood and not so much Traditional Turkey Thanksgiving meals. When we arrived we were very pleasantly surprised. We had a table outside under the white twinkling lights, fire going in the fireplace, quaint and beautiful ambiance.

Most of foodies know that going out to eat dinner at a restaurant on a holiday can be sometimes not the experience you wish. But, I have to say that completely changed once we sat down. Our waitress, whose name escapes me, sorry, was a blonde with an English accent. She is a gem. On top of everything from our drinks to dessert. She was fun, witty and there when you needed her and not there when you didn't. She knew timing to a tee. Never rushing you and I mean we sat there for 2.5 hours taking it all in.

The first thing we ordered was off the menu and was bloody mary's complete with a green olive, a LARGE cooked shrimp that was out of this world, a wedge of lemon and lime. Kudos to the bartender as this was a drink for the gods. We then ordered the Oysters Rockefeller. Often getting them and loving them in New Orleans, I was going to be a hard customer to please. BUT OH MY GOODNESS, were these to die for. Huge, plump oysters made with a delicate hollandaise sauce just browned enough & pieces of bacon & of course spinach. I could have died and gone to heaven! Then it was on to a wonderful half dozen of fried oysters that were equally yummy. We split their Modern Chopped Salad a warm mix of lettuce variety, candied pecans, artichoke and the wonderful idea of adding hearts of palm all mixed with a delicious salad dressing. Then it was on to the scallops, which come with 3, but our chef gave us four gratis as we were splitting this plate. It was sitting in a delicious tomato based broth. Again, delicious. Dessert creme brûlée. One of the best meals EVER. We'll be back & so should you.

Food was good, but for the money it should have been better. Too many places in Scottsdale that have great food, and when you pay a bit more you expect to be impressed.

There are two things I order here. #1, Bone in Filet black and blue and 2, Bone in Pork Chop, medium. Don’t know how they do it but they are both amazing. Last night was the pork chop. Only thing left was the bone. Always amazing sides and great Oysters Rockefeller and fried oysters. The Tri-fecta here is 6 raw, 6 fried and 6 Rockefeller. But that’s just me. Enjoy dining at the bar. Bar keeps are great, especially the bespectacled one! All the staff are terrific. Kat’s OK too. Ha. Best place to eat in Scottsdale.

I tried to return my bone in filet but they said they can’t re fire the bone. Screwed me out of two bone in filets. Next time I’ll leave a little meat on it and try again. Seriously if you’re eating at another steakhouse in town I’m concerned about your judgement. This is the best place in Scottsdale.

The effort put into the styling of the restaurant makes for a welcoming ambience. Detailed ceilings and walls, multi levels, large outdoor area and live music Friday and Saturday nights. Our server was a blast, as were the other staff members. Everyone seemed happy and the food was wonderful. Try the oysters, so fresh. A great night with friends.

This place is very nice to look at, the people were warm friendly and efficient, and the food was good. I thought the music was a little loud, but I will admit, if it’s not jazz, I would always complain. I would go back.

Another great night at Modern! The food is always awesome and the service is great! Best chopped salad I’ve ever had. You can’t go wrong with the filet. Done to perfection. We also got a side of truffle fries. They were honestly the best we’ve ever had! Great experience all around!

Service was great. There was also a singing guitar player that was good. Babyback ribs were not so good. They were very dry. Manager was kind enough to take them off of the check. Crab Louie salad was good. I would certainly go back.
