    Absolutely DELICIOUS. I don't think I've ever felt so full after a meal actually, I was so satisfied. Everything was truly delicious. So flavourful and so fresh tasting.

    Great food! Great experience. The chef came over to discuss any allergies and accommodated our friend’s needs. We had a wonderful time but it is very very hard to hear anything. Embarrassingly, we had to keep asking the staff to repeat themselves.

    Had a date nite with my girl. Service was excellent. Food was fantastic. Liked that there was a "date night" reservation card on the table with some small flowers. This is my second time there and can say this is one of the best vegetarian restaurants i've been to and im not a vegetarian.

    Amazing food, great value, we loved everything! not the basic brunch either, some nice stuff here! the service was not the best though, we asked twice if we could get some desserts, and I particularly wanted a cheesecake as my birthday cake (yes it was my birthday) but they never took our orders and just bu the check on the table to make us leave, which disappointed me and left me frustrated.

    Staff seemed overwhelmed by not many patrons. Water refill and shared plates were never given even though the wait staff were the ones to suggest both. Food was good but incredibly salty.

    I am vegan and gluten free. They have several gluten free options and this was by far the best vegan restaurant I've ever been to. We tried multiple Appetizers. The nachos and cauliflower wings were our favorite and were so amazing. Then we got mac n shews that knocked our socks off. We finished with apple crumble and ice cream. I will think about this meal for years to come. Service was impeccable. I even bought the founding chef's most recent cookbook because it made such an impression!

    Modern Love is the most amazing vegan restaurant in the world! I can’t get enough, and every single item I try is more delicious than the last. When I can’t make it to the restaurant, I am constantly ordering for delivery. The best of the best!

    We had brunch at 11 a.m. on a beautiful October Sunday morning - I cannot believe that this gem of a place wasn't packed. The food is outstanding; creative, delicious, and beautifully done. Portions are generous. Every staff member with whom we interacted was knowledgeable with lovely personalities, seems like it must be a nice place to work. Will absolutely be recommending Modern Love to everyone!

    walking into a cute date night or date brunch, love the colors on the walls. I'm a sucker for purple and they had purple napkins! the food was incredible, texture, flavor, temp, everything was SO good. Had the seitan and waffles, and the tofu Benedict and both were a perfect balance of savory and sweet. They have tables inside and outside of course, overall I can't wait to go back and try more of their menu next time in NY.

    Visiting from Atlanta for a foodie weekend. Came due to the reviews. Found food to be just okay. Ordered the vodka penne, side of cashew max & cheese to taste, and mushroom fried chicken. It was just okay. They were simply lacking seasonings. There were things that were good: cauliflower, penne flavorings, and the margarita s.

    We were a table of two who asked for nut-free recommendations. Our server provided a nut-free menu which quickly became confusing. They explained that there were some items on the main menu that were — and weren’t? — matched up to the nuts free menu. Ok. Then we tried to order an item from the nut-free menu that they were out of. Ok. We then tried to order sweet potato latkes from the main menu, which they were also out of. So we finally order cauliflower wings and a Brussels salad…and ask what the miso crème is on the salad after it’s arrived and we’ve taken a few bites. Our server (the third of our short stay…) promptly said “cashews” — to which I also had a heart attack, since my partner who ordered the salad off the nut-free menu is allergic to cashews. The server then corrected themself with a vague reassurance that the crème was actually SESAME. Ok. I requested that they go triple check with the kitchen — and upon their return, they reported that the crème is in fact miso based. What kind of stressful, chaotic experience is this? I was so excited to dine at Isa’s restaurant, after admiring her cookbooks throughout my 20s. This experience was sloppy — and my partner ended up with mild allergy symptoms anyways, which wasn’t surprising because these folks were not running a tight ship on our visit.

    I am not sure if the restaurant is always like this but they seemed to be overwhelmed and possibly understaffed. The food could use some more salt/seasoning. It was my first time there and it was a good enough experience that I would give them a second try.

    I’m not vegan but do enjoy eating plant-based often. Modern Love was a pleasant surprise! The food was delicious and the wine selections, while not large, was perfect. The fried “chikin” and mac was sooo good! The one disappointment was no dessert. They have shakes but I was hoping for actual dessert. That would’ve really rounded out the experience. But overall, I highly recommend Modern Love to vegans or anyone who loves good food.

    The food was bland and no flavor, veggie burger sucked, the buffalo wings were nasty. The food runner she had a attitude and was slamming down our drinks and spilling them and plus our food. So don’t waste your time and money on this place, much better vegetarian restaurant out there who have amazing food! Modern Love not good at All!!
