We love the Bar Room. It always has a happy buzz; the food is very good (the flamenkuchen is fabulous and so is the steak tartare); the service is invariably top notch. We got excellent wine recommendations this time as well. For a consistently lovely experience, we recommend the Bar Room --- it's delightful!
The food was amazing! The staff was perfect - all around a great night!
Very much enjoyed our annual holiday gathering. Service was wonderful and food was just enough. Would highly recommend for an event you want to make a bit special.
The white truffle risotto with borollo was amazing! Ryan was a fabulous server.
As always: very attentive staff, quality food. A quiet oasis in the heart of Manhattan.
Have been here several times. The experience is always first-rate and this time was no exception. Wonderful staff throughout, from greeting to exit, and probably the best meal we’ve ever had here (and all have been delicious)!! Highly recommend!
Exceptional experience all around. Server was extraordinary. Cuisine was perfect for post concert. Energetic. Table staff was superb. Highly recommend.
This was a terrific night out. While the room is a bit loud, with lots of hard surfaces, the entire experience was marvelous. We were greeted at the door, our coats were taken, and we were collected from the bar shortly thereafter. Our bar tab was automatically transferred to our table. Craft cocktails were prepared artfully. The drinks were among the best I’ve enjoyed. The menu was simple, but unique and offered wonderful combinations of tastes and textures. Portions were thankfully human-sized. The service was attentive, thoughtful and outstanding. My guest had food allergies and our server cared for these in a marvelously helpful and empathetic way. By the way, the MOMA Bar is a non-tip restaurant.
Great food including vegetarian options as we had a mixed group with us. Great service, knowledgeable staff including information on wine. Wine a little overpriced but fairly typical of upmarket restaurants in NYC. White truffles to die for, would definitely visit again
Our favorite place to dine in NYC before or after a show. The seasonal white truffles were amazing!
Food, drinks, service and ambiance were all fabulous. Jackson was an amazing server and helped us experience quite a memorable evening. We were there for the white truffle specials. Lucky us!
If you like boiled chicken...devoid of any seasoning...and a reapplied skin that is impossible to cut..and then other entrees that wouldn’t satisfy in food quantity a four year old...this is your place. Have dined here a couple times a year for several years running... but this is the first time I have been compelled to write a review. The other visits were worth returning for the space and 4 star out of 5 food... but can’t imagine what the chef was thinking...really so sub par...will try again..it could not have been worse food.
Fantastic. Amazing experience, staff was great. Very enjoyable afternoon.
Would not go back. Expensive, small portions, minimalist. Little value for the money.
Amazing! The food was divine. Interesting, but not too weird, combinations of ingredients. Intense flavor but not heavy. Butternut squash with burrata was heaven. Service was impeccable. Design was simple, modern but not spare. The best dining experience I’ve had in a while.
The hamachi didn’t have any taste. I make a MUCH better hamachi crudo dish that brings out the umami of the fish than what was served. Plus the olive bread was SO hard, I thought it was a couple of days old. No elderly person would be able to eat that.
Fantastic service. Courtney was very helpful with selecting the right wine for us.
Excellent food as always and very smooth and effective service.
Best food I have ever had
Loved the staff! From the Maitre D to our server and her associates they were wonderful. They even welcomed my 1 year old grandson with a smile. They really made the evening a complete pleasure. You could tell they all love their jobs...kudos to management!
The food was creative and excellent. Butternut squash app delicious. The ambiance chic but comfortable. Nice wines by the glass.
We will definitely be repeat customers and tell others about our experience.
Thank you Modern for a memorable night!
A perfect New York Thanksgiving. Couldn't have asked for more! Delicious food and fabulous service.
As good as always
Elegant creative food. Each bite is pure enjoyment.
Great anniversary meal
Amazing, Amazing, Amazing. What an incredible experience food, service, ambiance and value all extraordinary. My wife took me here after theatre for my birthday and it was one of the best ever. I love that gratuity is included so you can just relax and enjoy!
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.
