Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We decided to celebrate the Bat Mitzva of our daughter at Modern on a Friday afternoon. From the planning to the event itself, we received an extremely professional and hospitable treatment by the management and staff. And the food... every dish was a hit. It...was a memorable event.More

From our first meeting with Shani we knew we were in safe hands for the planning of our son's barmitzva. After holding a previous event at The Modern there was no doubt that we'd be back. The organisation, the advice, the logistics and coordination ran...so smoothly. The food, the atmosphere and the caring staff made for an incredible event. Thank you so much Modern you made out day xxMore

Hadn't been here for a very long time and frankly missed it. The menu didn't disappoint - the suffrito was divine - but something had declined: the atmosphere was not very relaxed, the servers were not attentive, and worst of all: there was a lack...of cleanliness re utensils, glassware etc. It's a real shame.More

After recommending a date for a birthday event for 7 people by their own employee, I want to emphasize - the employee suggested the date, 2 hours before the assigned reservation, someone called to say the employee made a mistake and that they are not...open at the assigned hour! 2 hours before. No accountability, no responsibility, just sorry, she made a mistake we are closing now, bye. I would be very wary of an establishment that behaves this way. For us the birthday celebration is ruined.More

This restaurant is a classic tourist trap. The food is extremely expensive and not worth it's price. The tapas plate for 2 was not good at all and definitely not worth its price. The main courses were dry and cold. To sum up i do...not recommend to eat there. This is my personal experiences.More

We celebrated Bar Mitzvah with Family at Modern. Food, service and location were amazing. Many thanks to Shani, the events manager of the restaurant who made the event happen despite the short notice during busy August. Highly recommended for events or for just good food...at a magical place.More

We booked this restaurant because we thought it had a high review from Tripadvisor. However we found the service terrible. We ordered entree for all 6 to share which was removed before we finished so they could serve the mains. However the mains didn’t come...all together. 3 of us had to wait 20 minutes before the main came. Not impressed with the dishes. Ordered a pasta dish but there was no sauce with it. Will not go backMore

We got married last month in the Modern venue. The staff were kind, the food was delicious and the place itself was pleasant and inviting. Ideal for a small wedding. And most importantly, all had a great time, us and the guests.

we like this restaurant very much - it has been one of our regulars but the menu has changed recently and today the lunchtime food on offer was very limited and disappointing. For the main course not much on offer other than hamburgers or schnitzel...- not what I go to a restaurant for. I ended up by having just an appetizer which was tasty and large enough for me as a main course - okay but not nearly as good as the previous options. The service is amazingly good and a pleasant ambiance but not enough choice for sure. The Tuesday evening menu has also changed to a strangely working tasting menu which one can choose a few items of at a high price for a small portion or the whole tasting menu which must be taken by all the diners at the table. NOT USER FRIENDLY . This is all a pity because the changes have put us off frequenting what was a very good place to eatMore

We checked the business lunch menu website the morning of our reservation day and we were happy with our choices for lunch. SURPRISE!! They had a different menu with nothing we liked. There were four of us. As it turns out the appetizers were good....We had Sashimi salad, beet salad and grilled veges. The main dishes were not good. I had fish kebab, one had schnitzel, one had papardelle and my wife had the filet beef. the filet beef was awful and was sent back. The fish kebab was tasteless. Then we had a so called chocolate souffle for dessert which was also not so good. the service was slow considering the fact that there was hardly anyone in the restaurant. The atmosphere was nice and there was no loud music to keep us from our conversation. They took the beef off the bill and offered free coffee to make up for the bad dish. We will not return again.More
