  • The tarte flambee is one of the best bar snacks in NYC. [Eater 38 Member]
  • I just adore this place, decor-wise and food-wise. Prefer the bar room over the dining room. The mushroom soup is healthy and delicious.
  • Don't order the ice cream. You get half a scoop. Ridiculous.
  • Upside down tuna tartare and long island duck!
  • 10-top of foodies and everyone loved it, especially the scallops with cauliflower, the steak tartare, brussel sprouts and last but not least the crispy chicken. Job well done The Modern!
  • This place is so good that it hurts. The best place to come and unwind from the hectic NYC day
  • The bartenders here are the best! Not only are they knowledgable with wine and cocktails, they also give great recommendations for restaurants.
  • good food. Never coming back after my friend got insulted by some lady (did she work herr?) who told us we were too loud. Its a bar room & made us uncomfortable. It was unprofessional and rude.
  • Danny Meyer does it again. Have not been that happy at a restaurant since Eleven Madison Park. Sit at the bar -or not- and let Antonio be your man: tuna with cucumber, lobster and egg, rabbit. Amen.
  • Best wine list in town!
  • The truffle oil popcorn is ridiculous! Yummm
  • Try the Duck Confit and Beignets may rival Cafe Du Monde!
  • Fine dining in a beautiful space. Make sure to get three courses as the portions are "nouvelle"
  • Eating at the bar is the most fun
  • Everything . But I am partial to the flavorful Tarte Flambe. Gratuity included.
  • Cute place, drinks are pretty good as well. Would recommend if you are in the area!
  • Serious craft cocktails. Sit at the bar; gratuity included
  • Sophisticated and interesting food. Would recommend for brunch if you want to try the incredible Modern food without spending that much
  • Awesome!!! Amazing food and service. Top 20 for sure!
  • Service and food seem to have gone a bit downhill after gratuity has become included and the chef changed. Not sure if it really lives up to its reputation anymore.
