We host one of the Financial District's best patios with ample seating for all occasions. Modus might serve Italian food, but refreshingly, no one’s anxious to label it “rustic.” Modus’s menu takes recognizable Italian classics and re-creates them as fine-dining fares.
The restaurant offers an extensive 300-bottle wine program, with seasonally selected wine by the glass. A focus on Italian, Californian and South American wines provides excellent pairing for a fine dining experience.
Behind Modus is Sam Genkov, owner of the 23-year-old District favourite Bravi Ristorante.

A delicious meal and great spot for a special occasion.
We had fun at the restaurant. Great food, great service. Amazing company
Expensive for what you get.
The veal scaloppine was not very tender.
Lovely lunch, very good service from Luis & Donaldo.
The restaurant was not observing COVID protocols- did not screen at entry- several staff moved about the restaurant without masks all night. They had several large groups of patrons socializing together right in front of washrooms which made it awkward to access the facilities.
Not good value.
The food and service was amazing with many gluten free options. Beautiful restaurant for a romantic date night or special occasion.
Excellent food. Excellent service. Highly recommend.
Food is phenomenal always as well as the service.
And unruly Passerby started a fight on the patio, they still charged us for a full meal and they forgot both kids meals
Way too pricey for the quality of food served. The food is very good, but not at the price point.
The food was great
Our server was excellent
Highly recommend this restaurant
The waitress and the barmaid were not wearing their masks when they wereinside the restaurant. We took the appetizers meatballs and the salumi. The last one was made of supermarket pickled veggies and cold cuts a bit too cheap for $28.
Seated on a windy patio with a burnt out candle for more than 10 min before a server talked to us. Waited another 5-10 min for water. Couple next to us arrived 15 min after we sat down, had a lit candle and water before we did in the same section. Received their food 10 min before we did, etc. Mains were excellent. Apps were mediocre. Service could use improvement.
I can’t believe I have not been to this amazing restaurant before. Everything was excellent!!! Delicious food and incredible atmosphere.
I found the food and service to be more than a little underwhelming
Food was ok, service was ok, wine glasses were dirty and not what you expect with the cost, would not go back.
Love the wine of Barolo I got, wine tasted delicious. Ahi tuna was prepared so well my taste buds just couldn’t get enough of it.
The food was really good and it was a nice dining experience. We would definitely go again.
A bit too pricey for the meal/drinks ordered
Very friendly and attentive staff. Service was stellar. Great food.
All great. Hedge trimming was somewhat annoying
Our party had a wonderful experience, would highly recommend.
Looking forward to dinning , again .
Service was a bit slow but everything else was great.
Food good to very good….service was excellent….a little on the pricey side. Washrooms could use a good cleaning if I was to be brutally frank….probably go back given the overall offering and location which is walking distance from a hotel I stay at often.
A great quiet terrace with amazing food and service. Highly recommend for lunch and dinner! service by T.J. and his team makes it a best in class experience.
We had to flag down our waiter quite often. He seemed to be preoccupied with the larger groups
The price does not match the food
Enjoyed the patio - felt safe
Great food and great service. My first time here but it won’t be the last.
Had a good time
Service was absolutely amazing! Loved the staff. i didn’t realize the food was extremely over priced until i got the menu
It was a lovely evening, with a beautiful Woman by my side!
Thank you for the hospitality!

Loved it great wine and food !
The service and food were great however the host of the restaurant was not wearing a mask. This caused some distress at the table whenever the host interacted with us. This should be addressed with the restaurant immediately.
First time back out with friends 😊. Night was supposed to be rainy but we were on the patio with a good sized umbrella so no worries. Everyone enjoyed their food choices (all different and all good). Our service was a bit slow at first but we were not in a hurry anyways. Would definitely go back or recommend this restaurant for a nice evening out!
Amazing food and staff!!!
Food and drinks are way overpriced for what they are. Menu is limiting and the crowd is not the best. Will not be returning
We had a lovely patio experience. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal which included the grilled calamari, lobster tagliatelle, and steak - everything was prepared perfectly. The dessert choices were limited, but we made due.
