We found the lighting to be very dark. The track lighting along the ceiling is just poorly organized. We were seated at a corner table and felt like we had a spotlight on us. And the rest of the dining area was very dim. Our table could have been cleared better prior to our arrival and my wine glass was dirty. However, the food was very good. A few small adjustments could be made and then I think the experience would have been excellent!!
Oysters were fresh and delicious, did the thursday three course meal great value for $54 steak was plain and very fatty needed to get peppercorn sauce to liven it up. Service was great
Service was extremely slow. Took approximately one and a half hours to get our food. For what you get the price is very high. I would not recommend this location.
Oysters are fresh nicely chilled and perfectly shucked. Crab in the jar is outstanding along with the grilled octopus. We have had these every time we go …consistently good. Looking forward to the next visit
We've eaten at Modern Ocean before. This visit we had king crab, and it was dry, overcooked, and barely warm when it came to the table. Our server brought us another order and it wasn't any better. They did adjust our bill slightly, but overall was still disappointing and not consistent with our past experiences. When going to a seafood restaurant and willing to pay higher prices for quality food, I expected more. We will likely go back, just not for king crab.
We had an amazing time and service food was amazing and fresh.
Great first experience at your restaurant. Fiona was great!
Great atmosphere, great food and service. We will definitely be back!
Food was fabulous. warm crab in a jar and seafood platter was fresh and delicious. Could have had a better table. It was small even for two people and awkwardly placed. The service was very good.
Ryan was the best waiter! Very knowledgeable about the menu and wine. His recommendations were perfect!!
Everything was amazing!!
Service was better than the food, was over priced. But you do have to have the waygu dumplings.
Our server Tristan was amazing and the food - I’m still dreaming about what we both had for dinner. ❤️
Amazing food!!! Would highly recommend to anyone really enjoyed the 3 course special for Thursdays! 54$ a person! Great value!!
The server was incredible. His wine knowledge was amazing! Loved it here. Thanks for making a big bday feel like a very special day
Anniversary dinner celebration. Everything was top notch. Great experience. Will definitely go again.
Went for our anniversary and had outstanding service. Great experience and will be back
This was our first time going to modern ocean as we are not from Calgary, our experience was amazing. We loved everything we tried. Our server was amazing. If we lived more locally we would be back often.
30th anniversary, first time at the restaurant. Excellent meal. Recommended and will go back
Fiona was a fantastic server, the oysters were high quality and we had a great time.
Amazing food, the staff was very accommodating and nice!
We went on a Thursday night for the 3 course dinner and prosecco for $54. The food was amazing!! Our server was friendly and knowledgeable about the types of oysters and wine pairing. Unfortunately, due to a health issue (unrelated to the food) we had to leave before dessert. We were in a rush to pay the bill and didn't fully look at it and realized once we got home we were charged $15 for two sparkling waters that we did not order. We specifically asked for and had tap water so this was very frustrating as that's quite a lot of money for something we didn't even have. It put a damper on the whole experience. I'd recommend eating there but definitely pay attention to your bill!
Excellent service provided by Ryan. Had the Halibut and the Sable Fish entrees which were good but we’re pricy.
Unique dining layout with multi level dining rooms.
My wife and I have been here before and the food is pretty good. Half price oysters between 1700-1800 seemed a good idea, along with a glass of bubbles. We chose 2 varieties of West coast and unfortunately 6 of them were really not to our liking at all. First time I’ve had an unpleasant oyster in my life!! The gyoza were very tasty and the crab in butter delicious followed by an allied 14 oz rib eye which looked about 9 but which was perfectly cooked but tough and chewy. The accompanying asparagus was sparse and the mash ok but the bearnaise sauce and sprouts delicious.
The staff there are excellent so we had a good time, but the food was a little above mediocre.
Great wine list and Fiona our server one of the best encountered anywhere.
Food was great but overly priced. 8oz filet was $50+ while it's 30(+/-) in other restaurants. Small portions for appetizers that are $25+.
Most servers/workers ignored us even when being called.
It was alright. Nothing amazing although not poor either.
The most perfect cooked piece of fish I’ve ever had in my life
AMAZING! It is the only word that comes to mind when I think about our experience here. And all the reviews are right, the carb in a jar is a MUST have when you visit here! Thanks Modern | Ocean staff for a great dining experience, can't wait until your new location opens in the South!!
Great place for a Birthday celebration
Great food, great service
This was our 12th wedding anniversary dinner and the team went the extra mile! They congratulated us, they placed us in special seating area. They even gave us an anniversary card along with a discount for our special occasion. Thank you for the amazing food, service and experience.
After a long period of not getting together with friends, this gathering was perfect … we had great fun and fantastic food!
We had a lovely dinner to celebrate work. The octopus appetizer was outstanding. The halibut and sable fish were very well prepared and full of great flavours. The truffle oil popcorn at the start of the meal was so good was asked for some more after our meal while we enjoyed the end of our wine. We will definitely go again.
Food was very flavoursome though a bit overpriced.
Service was very good!
Overall a nice looking place, flavoursome food but pricey!
I can’t say enough about what a fantastic meal it was. Kate our server was delightful, and made the evening even nicer. We will definitely go back, and can’t wait until the Southport Road location opens up.
Incredible service, quality and freshness. Beautiful decor and atmosphere. This was our first visit but we will definitely be back!
Our server was lovely and very attentive. The food was delicious. Excellent oysters and dumplings.
The Sea Bream was delicious, the bartender really knew his way around a cocktail as well.
I would go back.
Server was great and the food was excellent!! Will definitely have to come again in the future
The oysters tasted super fresh! My friend and I were some of the first customers, and the service was really good. Definitely will be coming back
Our server was rude. He was an older man and he would reach over us without excusing himself. He did not even bother trying to start small talk and just left us with the machine when we were paying. He was not friendly and it was just an overall bad experience in terms of service. We have been to this location a handful of times and our past servers have been lovely so we were surprised to receive that kind of service.
