Ate at the Bar Room at the Modern. Great options and choices. Good people watching and attentive staff. Loved the cold spring pea soup. There is no gratuity added to your bill so for NYC the menu prices are not so bad.

The Modern is a wonderful restaurant with a fully stocked wine and cocktail menu. The wait staff are very knowledgeable about the offerings, making excellent suggestions for beverages and entrees. We enjoyed the steak tartare, black truffle tagliatelle, lobster and scallops dishes.

I had a lovely lunch with a friend while visiting the Museum of Modern Art. The food and service here are outstanding. The three course lunch was well-curated and everything was absolutely delicious. EAT HERE!

Scene-y in a nice way. Fun atmosphere. Prawn fritters are deliciously both a crispy & melting pop of yumminess. Serving sizes are small & well executed.

The bar is more informal, with a view to the garden, but the menu is the same.
