    Their dinner course was amazing - all dishes served were flavorful and creative. The service was also impeccable as restaurant staff was attentive and accommodating. As first-timers in NYC, we felt that we made a great choice in picking The Modern as the Michelin restaurant to try. Truly an over-all lovely experience!

    I’ve dined here several times for lunch and dinner. This time the lunch portions seemed significantly smaller than in the past, although the food is still just as tasty. Service is adequate but not quite as seamless as Gramercy Tavern.

    I don't say this often, and I've dined literally all over the world, this experience was near flawless. The food was exceptional - better than other Michelin Star restaurants where I've dined. We did the 6-course tasting menu at lunch. From the "egg on egg on egg" dish to the salmon and dry aged duck - nothing disappointed.....next time I'm back in NYC, I will be dining here again.

    Food was wonderful. My only comment was that we told our waiter that one of us had a food allergy but then one of the dishes came out with that allergen. It was quickly fixed but a bit disconcerting that the message was not delivered to the kitchen. Overall a great experience and will definitely be back.

    This was our first time ever to enjoy a Michelin Star restaurant. The six course meal was something we've never experienced before. It's not a matter of "Oh, that was so tasty...". Every single course was something completely innovative. Delicious new sensations that we've never experienced in our lives. Normally we would never have paid this kind of money for supper. But this was not just a meal, rather a total experience. We only wish we had the whole even to savour every moment. Alas, we only had 2 hours, since we had a broadway show to catch. Next time we're in Manhattan we'll definitely plan to have a whole evening for such an experience. BTW: There was nothing at all "stuffy" about the place. The atmosphere and staff was super welcoming, with a nice sense of humour. (Before going we were a bit worried that it might be too 'stuffy' and out of our class... not so.) PS: We didn't even know what a Michelin Star restaurant was, were it not for the movie "100-foot Journey." There you go. :-)

    It's the best Michelin I've ever been to. I don't understand why it's two stars. I think it's four stars! I go to Korea after making good memories. Thank you.
