    I ordered a regular lemonade and they gave me a spiked one. They didn’t even apologize and tried to charge me for it.

    Had a mixed experience at Modern Love. We ordered the soup of the day, fried "calamari", mac and shews, and the chimichanga special. The soup was lukewarm at best but still tasty. Would have been much better if it were hot. The "calamari" was piping hot and very tasty. The mac and shews was also piping hot and a must order, but the chimichanga was also lukewarm at best. Very confusing as we were the 2nd table to come in, so their would be no backup in the kitchen for an excuse. Just not sure

    YES! Every time I go here, every dish I try, it is better than the last. We are so lucky to have so many vegan options in the area but Modern Love is hands down my favorite every time I come.

    Had a birthday dinner with a couple of friends here. Food was great as always, service was okay and I noted that it was for a birthday but dessert didn’t come with a candle. Still a great dinner though.

    Love this place so much! The nachos are the BEST, vegan or not. The fig and eggplant toast was also so great. The mac n shews are super delicious, but the tofu it was served with was just alright. The walnut Bolognese was yummy, but the chickpea cutlet was more fried potato strips than cutlet. Overall, love this place and will be back.

    The food was decent but not memorable. Made a reservation for my sister's birthday in advance and asked for a nice table. I understand that not all requests can be honored but we were sat at a large shared communal table with others. Even though a minute after we were seated, there were several tables for 2 open. Probably won't return as they could have easily accommodated request but didn't.

    I followed modern love on instagram for a while before i went. In saying that ive seen their food and dishes etc so i knew i was in for something special prior to going but i didnt know. Every single dish was bursting with flavor its was truly some of the best vegan food ive ever had. Im very passionate about food and i felt every bit of happy through the entire time eating there.

    Modern Love is my favorite vegan restaurant in NYC hands down. My husband and I are vegan and come here whenever we are in need of an amazing meal. We know we will never be disappointed. We have brought many non-vegan family and friends and they are always so surprised! My sister is not vegan and she asks to come here often. Can’t recommend enough! I also recommend to order their appetizers, current pasta or special, and make sure to get dessert!

    The menu has been updated since the last time I dined here. Different vegan dishes, but that same quality and taste. You can trick a carnivore into eating here, and they will be none the wiser. Nice chill ambiance & vibe, the food is quality, go on your 2nd/3rd date here. Let them know your palette is curated :-p The Chorizo Nachos to start was awesome. The cashew cheese tasted like actual cheddar! Bountiful amounts of guacamole to boot. Mac & Shews. That is all, you're welcome. DELICIOUS. Besides the brownie, the Peanut Butte Brownie has 3 different scoops of tasty ice cream. Good: -Buffalo Tempeh Wings -Chorizo Nachos (that "cheese"!!!) -Mac & Shews!!!! -Lentil Walnut Bolognese -Peanut Butter Brownie!!! -RSVP on OpenTable for points -Pro Tip: found out after I ordered but ask about the "Secret Menu" Bad: -None

    One of the best meals I have ever had, vegan or otherwise. The food was incredibly flavorful and well-presented - the bolognese was our favorite. The service was attentive, friendly, and helpful, and despite it being an extremely busy night, the food came out quickly. Yes, it's a little pricey, but well worth it, at least for the occasional special night.

    Comfort vegan food. The crispiness of the tofu on the crispy tofu and waffle entrée will have you wanting more and the smoky savory taste of the shrooms and grits dish was a welcomed surprise. Please don’t leave this place without trying the chocolate cheesecake it’s heavenly.

    Amazing and inventive vegan dishes, great wine list and really generous portions. The place in general is quite noisy and the staff were very casual, but would still recommend. The mushroom “calamari” was very creative and the burgers are huge!

    Amazing dishes. Well balanced savory, sweet, and sour notes for the Korean BBQ bowl and Buffalo wings. Excellent service. The chocolate cheesecake was perfection.
