This is one of Danny Mayer's restaurants at MOMA. We had not been here in a while. Since then the tip policy has changed, there's no tipping allowed. The service was excellent. For dinner there's a 4 course menu for 168 and a more expensive 8 course menu. There are a lot of excellent choices in the menu. Everything we chose was great, except for my fish which came out looking a bit raw and it was cold. They took it back and brought me a fresh one right away that was excellent. The portions were a bit small except for the fish. The dessert was delicious but tiny, I had the Mont Blanc and my husband the chocolate dessert. I was expecting the petit fours that you usually get at the end of a nice meal like this but they didn't serve any. (sorry I have a sweet tooth). We will definitely come back. Even though the space is kind of simple, the view is very nice, you're looking at the MOMA sculpture while you eat.
Best food in NYC! Imaginative, tasty, visually stunning. Wines appropriate for foods. Excellent, friendly service.
Excellent all round!! Will be coming back! Worth every penny!
It was my 4th time in the dining room. The Modern is one of my favourite restaurants, and I try to visit whenever I’m in New York. The meal always manages to surprise me with innovative flavor combinations, the staff are always courteous and welcoming.
Never disappoints. Always special.
Impeccable service. Lovely Food and atmosphere. Friendly staff. Everything was just right. Oh, and the wine list has some gems. The Som is extremely helpful and spot on. We’ll be back again and again.
Delicious food and expert service -- attentive without being fussy. The no-tipping policy is refreshing in New York. The structure of either a 4 course prix fixe (with around 5 options per course) or an 8 course tasting menu is simple and works well. Several of the dishes were beautifully judged -- for example, roast cauliflower with crab, or turbot with just a bit of horseradish. Wines were served with skill, and the list is good.
Prices are breathtakingly high, even for New York, even with service included.
Only negative was that our table was near the museum itself, with no full wall separating restaurant from museum. For some bizarre reason -- a fund raiser? -- loud pop music made its way into the restaurant, degrading what would otherwise have been a splendid experience.
Worth going out of the way for this place, especially if money is no object.
Easy to see why this restaurant captures awards - it really does have it all. Unique tastes, beautiful presentations, excellent wine list, kind and attentive staff, lovely atmosphere. Just a glorious dining experience!
Absolutely superb in every respect. I always lunch at The Modern when I am visiting Manhattan. I've never been disappointed (except with the weather).
I had to ask the staff repeatedly for things. Our waiter described the food as "nice" seven times. The cocktail was very good.
Fantastic food and service. Will definately go there again nxt time I am in New York
Beautiful and great food.
Absolutely amazing every time.
Great food, imaginative cuisine and fantastic service. Warm and inviting because of the space and the staff. One of the top restaurants in the city.
Culinary art to delight every sense. Impeccable service. Top notch.
Place is lovely but ridiculously expensive for lunch. Food was excellent but portions were ridiculously small. I will not go again. I should have asked cost but I was there three years ago and price was less than one half. I feel really taken
It is an honor to have dinner at kitchen table.
Exceptional all around..., get seating near the courtyard for a view and quiet conversation. The bar area can be noisy in the evenings but the food is equally excellent. Service in the main dining area is outstanding. Food prep and care, presentation and explanation is outstanding. Gluten free options are significant and staff is eager to please. Wonderful wine list. Overall it's pricey but deservedly so.
Very good and creative cuisine. Had a memorable birthday dinner with my girlfriend. We recommend the Maine lobster and cauliflower roasted in crab butter.
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)
An exceptional dining experience in a lovely setting.
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!
An amazing restaurant : art and the art of food . Always inventive the best ingredients and a beautiful presentation . Great value for this good adventure and a special place to dine . Only one complaint is the house made sparkling water . Badoit is 1000 better the cuisine deserves a better wart
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...
Very nice view, and the food is great!
Elegant high level dining!
Wonderful as usual
Top-notch dining experience. Everything from the food, service to ambience is impeccable. Highly recommend.
Attentive service, delicious food and a great ambience. Love this restaurant.
Didn't go for the six dishes tasting menu (kinda regret it now...). For the three course fix menu I was really delighted by the ravioli and chocolate mousse while the turbot is good but standard. Good enough experience for a michelin-starred lunch though.
One of the best experiences we’ve had to date at the Modern.
Fiona and Dave were awesome!
Birthday . Sophisticated but not overly complex dishes . Delicious, different, varied. Liked some more than others and some were just great. There was not too many courses. It was the aright amount of dishes —no one got too stuffed.
Sitting next to the Winfield into the winter hdtden
Consistently great experience
Once again, The Modern doesn’t disappoint! The impeccable service, exquisite food and divine wine list do are second to none. Will be back very soon to experience yet another divine dinner and evening at this exceptional midtown culinary delight!
