    The Bar Room - elegant modern yet unpretentious place for a special or business lunch. Food & presentation artfully prepared. Service tactful & attentive. The Roasted Beets w Black Truffle - Pistachio Vinaigrette are what is served in heaven. Definitely would come again for a special NYC treat.

    We celebrated my sons graduation here. The staff are friendly and proficient. The food was beautiful and delicious. You can see why they have Michelin stars. They also have a bar next door which is also fantastic.

    We ate here in the dining room. It surpassed our expectations, and was a surprisingly good value for a tasting menu given the quality. Cozy views of the MOMA sculpture garden out the back window, and lovely modern decor in the dining room. Dishes were creative, tasty, and well-prepared. Exceptional wine list of mostly European wines.

    Love the set up. Casual elegance. Amazing food, plated in a way that is both beautiful and fun. Husband had the gnocchi and I had the lobster risotto. Amazing service. Would come here just for a drink, too. The bar is gorgeous (and fully stocked)!

    Absolutely amazing meal served in a stunning environment. The tasting menu is exquisite - either 3 or 6 courses for lunch or up to 8 for dinner. My wife and I opted for the 6 course lunch menu, which includes dishes chosen by the chef as well as a few palate cleansers. The menu changes seasonally so there’s no point in describing each dish, but it’s fine dining at its best. You will not be disappointed. Well Done

    The Modern is a classy upscale French Restaurant. The price is a little on the higher side but it is well worth breaking the budget for a good night out. They have a nice bar area and lively music. The food is amazing if you love french food this is the place for you. Our favorite part of the place to eat is the garden they have beautiful high ceilings and a wonderful view. My favorite food to order is the Gnocchi with Black Truffle and Radish. I think that the menu has a lot for all different tastes. Overall service was quick and very pleasant. We didn't want past your average time for a table. And everyone is very friendly.

    We had a wonderful meal and the Modern. The food was beautifully presented and tasted great. It's really hard to pick a favorite, but I really enjoyed the foie gras poached in duck broth and slow cooked sea bass. It was a great experience, would come back for sure. :)

    This restaurant deserves more then five stars. Everything is perfection, from the moment you walk in. For a Michelin star restaurant with truly impeccable dishes, there is no snob or attitude here. The staff members are extremely courteous even when I walk in with my gym cloth and no reservation. The service from all staff memebers is top notch, extremely professional and friendly. The food is so amazing here, and so unique that words can not prepare you for what you are about to eat. If you can... come multiple times to try everything as I have. Also there is no tipping at the establishment... which means they pay all staff members a full living wage to oblish the need for tips.

    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..
