    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!!

    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

    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.
