Amazing food and service! One of the best meals I’ve ever enjoyed in a restaurant.

Always a pleasure dining at the Modern. The experience is always superb and consistent. Food presentation is extraordinary. I would not expect anything less from this multi Michelin starred establishment.

The ambiance, presentation and service was impeccable. The courses were varied and beautiful. The amuse bouche was wonderful. Each of our meals were spectacular in appearance. However, the flavors of our selections were not remarkable and did not live up to the whole experience. My pork tenderloin’s sides were perfect but the pork itself was neither tender nor flavorful. We all remarked how unusual it was than none of us had been before, but after the meal I could see why no one has insisted we try it

The Modern continues to be top of the line. Everything - food, wine, service, ambiance, attention to the details, is exquisitely done. We had the 8 course tasting menu plus wine pairings. Each course was amazing, and the pairings were right on the mark. I also really like the no tip policy - but that only works in a place like The Modern where the service is superb. Overall, a great experience!! (But bring your wallet - it’s expensive, but worth it)

The Modern was excellent. We got the 8-course meal, which was delightful. So many of these places can be pretentious, but my wife and I didn't get that impression at all. The service was efficient but relaxed. It was a wonderful evening. I will say the last dessert was a bit of a misfire, as the citrus ice cream had an unpleasant bite to it. We should have sent it back and asked for something on the menu. That said, the chocolate with pop rocks in it made up for it!

Everything about my lunch was Impeccable. The space is lovely, the flowers beautiful, the settings clean and elegant. Each item on the menu sounded exceptional; my problem was making a choice. The cuisine is fresh and creative but without overbearing sauces or techniques. Everything was delicious.

What an amazing experience. Kevin Browne is just the host you want every time . He did such an amazing job . I was a little upset at first but he totally made up for everything and a lot more. Amazing food, amazing service, amazing experience. Will definitely go back again... a true Michelin star restaurant.. By far my favorite...
