... for a Michelin-star famed hip-place in midtown Manhattan very friendly staff - even without a reservation. Kids are no isue at all and the waiter does know fine wines from the most unexpected places around this globe.

One thing to remember is that the gratuity is built in to the bill. For about $125 per person we enjoyed a couple of rounds of drinks and appetizer sized food offerings. The service is A level and the atmosphere is hard to beat. The host & hostess are super about shifts & changes to the reservation. The private dining room is one of the gems in NYC.

I have had the priviledge of dining at the Modern recently with a friend. What exquisite fare and top-notch service. Courses are brought out that are so well presented, they are almost too pretty to eat. Definitely fitting for the Museum of Modern Art! Perfect for that special occasion such as an anniversary, birthday or as we did for a Mom's Night Out. You wont be disappointed. Choose from either four courses or eight; plus, gratuity is always included. If you cant afford it now, definitely add to your bucket list!!

We ate in the bar. It was my wife's birthday. The staff is extraordinary, the food was good, not up to expectations. Everything was really rich, which is great in moderation, but overwhelming when its across the board. We will go again and eat in the restaurant proper. Again, you can't get better service.
