The tasting menu was fabulous with a truly creative experience in the foie gras dish. The wine list is impressive - Very few restaurants in France would have such a choice in Burgundy. The service is extremely pleasant and up to the standard. Great experience overall. Merci!

This is the perfect spot if your looking for a quiet spot to relax and read in peace which in nyc is very usual to fine. Also if you are an art lover then you will definitely be pleased with atmosphere. The deep dish was delicious and the desert dish of coconut sorbet was delightful. Highly recommended.

Went to MOMA and had late lunch here. Food is so delicious and well plated. Attendants were so professional and were very helpful. Thumbs up! They made our New York experience complete.

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely spring dinner at The Modern. This is a very popular restaurant so book your table early. We were seated at 5:30pm, well ahead of the dinner rush in both the bar and in the dining room, at a lovely table by the window overlooking the courtyard garden shared by the Museum of Modern...

Excellent, carefully prepared meals, in a clearly upscale experience. We just wishes our waiter was less snobbish. The kitchen was accommodating to dietary restrictions.

I haven't had such a completely delicious meal in a long time. The Kohlrabi salad was fresh and textured, the lobster risotto was sublime from first to last spoonful. This was a business lunch in the Bar Room. Service fantastic as well. The only downside was that the place is not cheap. If you can afford it, absolutely go.

We enjoyed a sublime Easter brunch at The Modern. Every aspect of the meal was virtually perfectly executed. The pace was leisurely, but attentive. Brunch was a three-course prix fixe, and well more than we've ever spent for brunch, but there were several additional treats that felt more like a five- or six-course feast. Each course was its own little... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
