Can't miss with Modern Love. I've been over 20 times and I've never been disappointed. The classics remain on the menu while seasonal specials rotate so there's a comfort factor while always being able to try something new. My favorite!! ♥️

I've been looking forward to dining at Modern Love Brooklyn for years and was absolutely thrilled to finally enjoy a meal there recently. The food was as incredible as I'd hoped it would be and the wait staff was top notch. Myself and my guest are not vegans (though I prefer to eat like one), but we were both extremely delighted by the flavors and textures of each of our dishes (a charcuterie board, Korean BBQ bowl and strawberry shortcake dessert). So good! We left as two happy customers with full bellies! We'll see ya again next time we come to BK! :)

It took 1h40 minutes before we got our food. We were a party of 8 so a 20% gratuity was mandatory.

I believe that the assured gratuity was the reason why they served 4 tables that arrived after us before us.

Long story short, if you're a small party, this is a good spot with good food, but any large parties should go somewhere else.

Probably one of the best vegan restaurant I’ve been to. Went here on Mother’s Day, but more so for my sister’s Bday. When we wanted dessert, our waiter said they don’t serve dessert during brunch, but they had a special Mother’s Day cake. None of us were mother’s, but he gave us dessert anyway, which I thought was very nice of him. Service was amazing. Will be back to try their other food options.

I have been a strict vegan for one year and I avoid SOY like the plague. Almost everything on their brunch menu had tofu or soy based ingredients. Both my husband I ordered the vegan burger which I assumed was made out of beans or etc. We both felt very sick 30 minutes into brunch and asked our waitress what it was made with. She told us it was Seitan which I know is not soy based but I feel the ingredients should have been listed on the menu. I have been Gluten Free for 20 years and it made me incredible ill, I also also eat plant based burgers or sandwhiches without the bun which I obviously did here. I was extremely bummed bc it ruined my mothers day by being ill!

We went to Modern Love for brunch, and it was fantastic! I had the 'shrooms and grits and my husband had the seitan and waffles - so delicious! Our server was excellent, and attentive and the whole restaurant was just buzzing with positive energy. Also, the bathrooms had super cute pictures of animals which just made me extra happy. 110% would come here again, and next time when they have the full menu!

Awesome! Really great variety of delicious vegan takes on classic comfort food. We had the chimichanga, Mac and 'Shews (cashew cheese) and "mozzarella" sticks. The wine based cocktails and beer selection is on point. Definitely coming back for brunch.

Dinner was mediocre. NYC has a ton of amazing vegan dining options and unfortunately this just isn’t it. Third time eating here with company so this is not based on an off night for them :/ portion size is much larger than you typically see in New York restaurants, (think like an Applebee’s/Olive Garden portioning) so if you don’t mind eating the food, you definitely won’t leave hungry.

I love this restaurant but seems their menu had been drastically reduced. I liked it better when it had a little more variety. The breakfast tacos were a little disappointing. Overall I like that this restaurant exists, but needs more variety on menu.

Modern Love has been on my bucket list since it opened. It totally lived up to all my expectations. The food was divine. Service and atmosphere were fantastic. I will forever be a fan of Isa Chandra Moskowitz as I have cooked and baked from her cookbooks for several years. Experiencing her restaurant took my fandom to a whole new level. I recommend that every vegan make the trip to Brooklyn for this experience. Actually, I recommend that every human being do so. No one will go away disappointed. Until my next trip to New York, I’m back in my kitchen trying to re-create the experience. Thanks for a wonderful evening!

The service was a disaster. The food was okay. Honestly, we had high expectation, especially for the price and we are vegan so we did many vegan restaurant before. If the service would have been there, we would have been ok with medium food but the server was incredibly rude and not attentional.

Modern Love is one of my absolute favorite spots. The food is super tasty, enough to please vegans and non-vegans all at once. They also have quite a few gluten-free options clearly labeled on the menu so it's perfect for those with Celiac's or food sensitivities. Really fun and interesting picks like poutine, chimichangas, and butter beer (a favorite!) My only wish is that it weren't so noisy, it can get crowded even on weeknights and then hard to hear your party talk. Other than that, perfect.
