Great dinner, great service, great wine selection. Loved the vibe. Would definitely come back.
Great experience and really delicious food. The portions are a bit on the artsy side (museum/art pun intended!) for the price. The no tipping concept is great.
We were in NYC for about 5 days. Have always loved the Museum and ate there several years ago. Had lunch there on 4/18 and it was even better than we had recalled. Our server, Laura, was especially excellent. Brought our friends there with us, one of my roommates from Med. School many years ago. They also said it was outstanding and thanked us for making the reservation.
it was great
Considerate service, interesting menu, overpriced for the portions.
I only had a drink and a cheese plate as I needed to be through eating before I'd have had time for a full meal, which wasn't offered before 5:00 o'clock. Both my wine and the cheese plate were excellent, the service was excellent, and I loved the ambiance. Since I was early and there were not many people in the bar, it was pleasantly quiet. I probably won't go again as prices for a glass of wine started at close to $20 and the small plates offerings were few and, I felt, were expensive for the quantity of food served.
I was looking for a midtown spot to entertain a friend who was in from Tokyo. She's also treated me to wonderful lunches when we are on her turf and I wanted to reciprocate! Yesterday's experience was 5* -- the table was a 4-top so there was plenty of space. The menu is limited but it was hard to decide among several delectably sounding options - we both chose the crispy skinned salmon served with white asparagus and sorrel. Plates were (nearly) licked clean. For dessert I had something chocolate and my guest something lemon - both wonderful. The service was very attentive, and the sommelier was very patient giving me a few options of white wine by the glass. I will definitely return.

Food was wonderfully simple yet complex. Service was friendly and attentive. We will definitely plan to make another visit!
The place is in the same building as MoMA so book if you are going to the MoMA and you will enjoy this place before or after the visit. The place is nice, the service was very attentive but not invasive and the food was generally good but not great.
Tortellini were something strange. Scallops were average. Price was quite high. Never back again
One of the great Restuarant’s in New York
Has maintained its service and quality of food at its highest level over the years with culinary dishes and wines which continue to be creative and outstanding.
Amazing delicious food and great friendly service
Wonderful service, great ambiance and spot on wine/ food. What dining out should be
While we enjoyed the Bar and the limited menu, we would have preferred sitting in the main dining room. When I reserved, I thought I was reserving for the main dining room. Not sure, how the reservation sent me to the Bar.
This was not a problem, but the view of the garden cannot be beat....
Het was een mooie ervaring. Heel lekkere kunstwerkjes.
Een mooie beleving wanneer je in New York Manhatten bent.
I want to thank the staff for making my birthday very memorable. Everyone was so thoughtful, kind, and knew it was my birthday, making it that more special.
Still one of the most lovely spots in Manhattan - the Bar Room (note this is a separate menu from the tasting-menu-style restaurant The Modern, separated by a frosted glass wall) is pitch perfect - very much tuned to make you feel comfortable, well-treated, understood and appreciated. the menu is interesting and unusual, with various pairings of ingredients meant to put you on (delicious) alert. The wines are well-matched and unusual, ie, a cabernet franc from Chile. We had the lamb sausage (house made), the seared scallops, the peekytoe crab with avocado and the beets. All lovely and delightful. Not cheap, but a very good and very fair value for the quality of the food, the service, the room, the location and the experience.
All remains outstanding at the Bar room -- the consistency is impressive, yet already fully dialed in. We particularly love the tarte flambée, but all the food is impeccably prepared and delicious. Service is truly top-notch, solicitous yet not intrusive. This remains one of our favorite restaurants in the City, particularly in midtown, for low-key dining with a top-end staff. Thanks, as always.
Sea Urchin and Fennel salad was one of the all stars on my trip. Lobster dish is solid. Our server was great.
Great wine and food was quite delicious. Service was fine. Scallops were perfect.
Dining excellence: excellent wine list with a generous selection of half bottles, outstanding food and great service.
The Bar Room at the Modern is a great restaurant, with an upbeat vibe and welcoming, accommodating service.
From arrival to exit, I felt truly a special guest!
The atmosphere of the bar exuded professional pride, the food was way above par, to an artistic level. The best meal I had in Manhattan. One of our servers, Max, made the meal an experience without any pretense. He was educated, kind and fun.
This is my second visit to The Bar Room, once for lunch and once for dinner. There is much that is outstanding. Five stars: ambiance, attentive service, craft cocktails, meal presentation and dessert. Three stars: the main courses are just not quite up to lofty expectations. There always seems to be something slightly off with the consistency of many main courses, whether it is flavors or temperature. This visit, my crispy skin salmon was very cold and disappointing. One other diner was not pleased with their entree. I will likely keep The Bar Room in my lunch rotation for special occasions. When the consistency improves with the main courses, I will gladly return for dinner.
Great food, beautiful presentation, and overall wonderful experience, 10/10 would go again.
Wonderful drinks and dinner at the bar, as usual. Miss the draft beer.
A top spot Goin downhill...young staff not attentive to guests kills the Danny Meyer edge..sad to see, but maybe spread too thin. Forgotten after check in despite several open tables, lost drink, 4 asks for check
I have been to the Modern many times,and it keeps its flawless performance. This time I took my colleagues for a lunch. They stayed very pleased and happy. Everything was better than we excepted. The service was extraordinary. See you soon, The Modern 😍
It was my friend’s birthday. Food was great and the service was very attentive. They took good care of us and helped us celebrate the birthday.
I love this place. Beautiful ambience.
Everyhring was delicious - even the bread/butter.
Service impeccable - every single staff member.
Great food, great service and very elegant ambience! Loved it.
So consistently good. Keep going back.
Nice dining room. Unique setting. Very good service. Nice ambiance. Good food. Recommended.
Excellent and very accommodating service
Fantastic experience. Every dish was so unique, interesting, beautiful and delicious. The wait staff was extremely helpful. We loved every minute and every bite!
Great food, great service (and no tipping!). Tables are close together, hence only 4 stars for ambiance. The sea scallops with cauliflower was one of the best dishes I have ever eaten anywhere!
The food was wonderful, and the physical space was very nice. The only negative part of the experience was immediately after we sat down. It took at least five minutes for any one to approach our table, and that was only after we flagged down a busboy. No water, no menu, nothing.
Once we met our waiter, he did a fine job. But the long wait at the beginning really marred the whole experience.
Restaurant experience was overall excellent. Food quality, appearance and portion was high; service was OK; cocktails a bit on the small side (approx 8 oz per serving). Server did not elaborate the "specials" of the day and was not too informative or made suggestions. Noise level was low and therefore, ambiance real comfortable.
I highly recommend this eatery to anyone seeking good food, good drinks and a comfortable setting.
Delicious creative flavorful food beautifully presented. Excellent cocktails and wines. Beer on tap was very limited but decent bottles.
The service is impeccable and attentive. A very swanky room upscale but causal.
