The atmosphere is amazing, very fitting of MOMA. The presentation of the food is excellent, as well as the taste. Even though the place was full, our server was fairly attentive. If there was one negative thing for me, it was the cocktails. I tried two, then just switched to wine. I will be returning though, as overall, it was a wonderful experience.

Like other Danny Meyer restaurants it's expensive but worth it.

I was delighted with my lunch experiance! The "coming up roses" cocktail was fabulously beautiful and refreshing!

Three friends and I dined here on 3/23 for a birthday lunch. The setting was resplendent and the food was delectable! We were well cared for and all felt peaceful and totally satisfied when we left. The lobster in the angel hair pasta was amazing, the "pea" themed amuse bouche tasted like spring and the complimentary chocolates were sublime. I am returning next week!

I have never been disappointed in a Danny Meyer restaurant until now. The food was good, but not exceptional or even terribly interesting. At $82 a head, I expect more than just good. The service was surprisingly charmless and inattentive, unlike the other gems in the Meyer empire. When a wine list was not offered, I requested one. It never came. No one ever asked if everything was all right. The view of the sculpture garden, however, is unbeatable. Note to Mr. Meyer: attention must be paid.

A mighty meal Mr. Meyer! Really amazing, the room, service, and outlandishly good food. the place is expensive of course, but you get the full show. 3 courses, and all kinds of extras. The Seared Fois Gras is maybe the best Ive ever had, the Yellowtail carpaccio was terrific, and the fois gras terrine was a buttery trip to funville. For entree, I had the duck breast, which was great, with three unique sides. The people I was with are not much fun but they enjoyed the amazing desserts as much as anyplace we've been. The lemon Napolean is nuts! Anyway, great place, no complaints, although I would change the stuffy classical music they went with, the place is called the Modern, let's hear some Portishead or something. Probably, the best meal I've had in my decade in NY, from git to go.

On our first visit ... we were very impressed with everything about the restaurant. Our second visit was just like the first except for our somewhat disingenuous server. She was nowhere as attentive as our first server was. Apart from taking our order she appeared once during our meal, asked us how everything was, and then for the rest of our stay was not to be found, including bringing us the check. The ‘runner’ who brought our food was exceptional. He made our evening extremely enjoyable with his efficiency, knowledge, and … amiable personality. I think he will be elevated to ‘server’ status, as soon as an opening permits! As we were leaving, our server said “Good night” to us. However, due to her lack of attention during our meal, I felt she was about as sincere as a used car salesman trying to rid himself of a ‘cluncker’. I don’t want to criticize her too harshly because I do believe she was well intended. I’m sure just one hour of additional training would bring her up to par. Therefore, DO NOT let this minor infraction deter you from having what will be, a wonderful experience. The Modern is one of NYC’s finest in all aspects, and, you can even visit MOMA before (or after) your meal.
