Amazing everything. Impeccable
a wonderful dining experience: elegant without being overly formal; superb service; excellent food and food presentation.
Excelente me encanta es uno de los mejores restaurant, buen servicio excelente comida
Very good atmosphere, superb food and value.
Excellent food and service. Would definitely go back!
So creative! Very flavorful without being salty nor spicy. Dawn to Dusk cocktail: fantastic! Sea Base tender and perfect with amazing harmonizing around it. Pumpkin desert, don't remember the name, full of lovely flavors that enriches one another.
All parts were excellent.
Unlike some restaurants, all parts were excellent. This includes the mixed drinks, the starters, the mains, the desserts, the service, and the gratuity policy. As someone who likes dessert, often the desserts seem an after thought and not on par with the rest of the meal. At The Modern, this was not the case.
The unique "service included" in the price policy is refreshing and I wish more restaurants would follow suit.
Our server Max was very helpful, patient, and helped make our daugther's birthday special.
Definitely worth checking out.
Really disappointing service.
Our attentive waiter Ryan took great care of us as we enjoyed cocktails with shrimp fritters and steak tartare, and later glasses of a wonderful Willamette Pinot Noir with the Almond Frangipane Cake with Chèvre Mousse and Mirabelle Plum Sorbet (wow!) to celebrate my rock star friend Jennifer getting inducted into the National Academy of Design class of 2018. Loved everything about being there.
Not our first time and will not be the last. They never disappoint at The Modern. It may seem pricey but remember that tip is included. Worth it!
In every way this restaurant rates a 10! The atmosphere, the service, the food, the setting are always perfect. The evening always starts with a warm welcome by the Host Team. The Bar at the Modern is perfect for dinner with friends and perfect for a business dinner.
The Modern is unique and elegant dining and suitable for all occasions, but for me it was for special occasion. The staff creates an experience for every guest which makes you feel like the most important person in New York City during your time at their table. Prepare for sublime flavors on your plate and delicious pairings in your glass. Bravo!
Delicious offerings! Perfect service!
Such wonderful service! We will definitely be returning.
Nice place. Good food. Great location.
Consistently excellent. We've been a few times now, and it's as terrific as ever.
Amazing food, wine and great service! I loved the experience!!
Creative but still very accessible food. All familiar but new and inventive. Every item was delicious - even for the picky eater. Large enough portions to share but small enough that you get to try many - and I think we tried most of the ones on offer. Handcrafted cocktails were fun and tasty.
Service was outstanding - some of the best I've experienced. Gratuities are included in the prices - no tipping allowed. I think if this is the example of the quality of service you can expect under this type of policy, then I'm all for it!
Our party of five had a wonderful evening.
The ambience and vibe is totally New York. The food and drink offering is well-edited and of a great standard. However what took our evening tonight off the chart was the service - all the staff who looked after us tonight, from the front desk, our waiter to the bus boys/girls were phenomenal!
Food was delicious but served cold. It is a no tipping restaurant which resulted in the service not being commensurate with the dining experience.
Jackson was an absolute delight. He really knew his stuff and delivered detailed and professional service. He even offered a kitchen tour at the end of the night where we took a picture with all of the chefs. Truly a one of a kind, special experience.
We love The Modern and the Bar Room, keep up the great work!
The food at The Bar Room was shockingly disappointing. The green bean and poached egg salad had obviously come right from the fridge and the shrimp fritters were deep fried balls of breading with a tiny hint of shrimp. The texture was mushy. The good news is that the management was immediately responsive and removed these items from our bill. Perhaps a drink at the bar next time.
We meet my cousin from CA every year for our birthdays
(We don’t sing). Always elegant but casual with great service & food!
Always buzzing, friendly staff and great food. A bit loud and crowd 40+
Outstanding service. Staff seems genuinely happy you are dining there.
We have visited The Bar Room on many occasions, as had our guests, and we have always really enjoyed it. However, this time, each of us found the food was not as good as we have enjoyed in past visits. The soup was too salty, the chicken too dry, and the green bean salad, which was accompanied by a poached egg, was not the type of poached egg I'm used to (deliciously runny and warm....this one was ice cold, like the beans.
I get is was a salad, but still somewhat of a surprise).
Would still recommend it, because we're hoping this was just a fluke. Even though this trip was a bit disappointing, we hope to be back soon.
Exquisite and exceptional. Each bite, perfect, as was the service.
What a delight! Our service was outstanding and so attentive on a very busy afternoon. Every need anticipated. We allowed that they would certainly get a good tip! Guess what? NO TIPPING ALLOWED! It was a pleasant surprise that some of the best service I've had in New York was from a place that didn't even allow tipping! The food was delicious; drinks great!
Looks like anatomical theater than a restaurant for us
Was very good but we waited almost 45 hours for our entrees.
We love the bar/restaurant and go every time we are in New York. For two we prefer the bar if a seat is available (first come), but the tables are good for three or four. Great for pre theater.
Service went smoothly until the admittedly delicious and beautiful appetizers were removed and the wait for the entrees began. After 20 minutes, the server informed us that the entrees would be out shortly but even then we had to wait. At least they were hot. No explanation was given. Whether it was a glitch in the kitchen or we got treated shabbily because see were casually dressed tourists, I have no idea. We had to rush to our next appointment so that added to the disappointment with the experience. I've always visited the Bar Room at The Modern after a morning at the museum but won't be going again.
This was a lunch, and one of the best meals I have had in the last five years, and I’m comparing to three and four star restaurants.
The Modern doesn't disappoint. Excellent food and gracious service.
Staff were wonderful. Food-excellent! The lobster risotto was perfect.
Stopped in for dinner before a concert at Radio City Music Hall. A really enjoyable experience - everything was excellent. They have a good variety of smaller items in case you don't want to eat a big meal before the show - but heartier dishes as well. Don't miss the chicken - I know no one orders chicken in a place like this, but it was truly exceptional. Waited on by Nicole - she was outstanding. We basically put ourselves in her hands and she guided us through the menu and wine - didn't miss a step. It's a perfect place to go before a show at RCMH.
