As a newcomer to the area, I was excited to try this restaurant. I had read varying reviews on the internet, but wanted to form my own opinion. After this first visit, I won't be going back. Ever. I have never felt compelled to write a negative review, until this dining experience. I have been to establishments where either the food is good and the service is bad, or vice versa. Modern has the unenviable distinction of being a restaurant where both are disappointing. The waitress (who was actually a female chef) was rude, cold, humorless and dour. Being a waitress requires a certain demeanor and temperament, and if you don't have that, you should not be dealing with customers. On the other hand, when the male chef brought our food and took our plates, he was gracious, polite and extremely personable. My dining partner's ribs were dry and tasteless, even though they had been doused in a salty gravy mixture. My potatoes were incredibly salty. Luckily our water glasses were never empty. I would not recommend this restaurant at all. Please save your money and go to a place where your business will be appreciated and your taste buds will thank you.

Modern Food+Spirits is a very good restaurant with a menu that appeals to us, and that is why we chose to go there for dinner recently. Unfortunately, even in very good restaurants, occasionally something goes wrong and a dish is prepared poorly. It happens. What should never, EVER happen is the display of bad attitude, bad manners, bad temper and bad business policy that was exhibited by the chef/owners when we respectfully requested that an entree be returned to the kitchen to be cooked properly. Instead we were informed that we were wrong, that the dish was fine, that they refused to consider that the mistake was theirs, and that no other meal would be offered as an alternative! We were "invited" to pay for the remainder of the food and to leave!

We are a group of mannerly, intelligent, reasonable people with a very long and full history of dining out, from 5star restaurants to greasy spoon diners and everything in-between. Despite our vast breadth of restaurant experiences, none of us had ever experienced anything like this! We were positively shocked by the unnecessary, embarrassing and utterly rude treatment we received from the owners. We refuse ever to return to Modern Food/Spirits and advise all reading this review to do the same!
