    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.

    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!

    I love their cocktails! Some of the best bartenders I've seen in NY. I disagree with this place being touristy. I come here often as I live next door and have often run into many people I know.

    Sublime and peaceful dining experience. Try any of the tasting menus with wine, they’re well worth the price. Nice place to take a break and have a drink while exploring MoMA.

    One of Danny Meyer's fine-dining restaurants; we'd recommend sitting in the more casual Bar Room for equally delicious fare at lower prices.

    Everything 😋. But I am partial to the flavorful “Tarte Flambée”. Gratuity included.

    Sophisticated and interesting food. Would recommend for brunch if you want to try the incredible Modern food without spending that much

    The bartenders here are the best! Not only are they knowledgable with wine and cocktails, they also give great recommendations for restaurants.

    The more casual dining experience of Danny Meyer's French-American, Michelin-starred restaurant overlooking the MoMA's Sculpture Garden.

    All day dining yo. Bar seats are clutch but the low tables are also pretty good. Never fail to order foie gras.

    Nice way to sample a Michelin Star restaurant. Bar at the Modern does not disappoint.

    Very good food. But very crowded and zero social distance. You basically eat with your neighbors

    Scallops are delicious -- shrimp fritters, tuna sliders & fried oysters are just fair

    Less formal than the Modern, more relaxed and casual atmosphere suitable for drinks. Serves small plates (tapas style) Alsatian cuisine. Read more

    The Kina Cocktail was great - Gin, Cocchi Americano, Blanc Vermouth, Sherry - dry and nice for sipping.

    The Alsatian tarte with the smoked bacon comes like a flatbread pizza and is delicious!

    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.

    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.

    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.
