This place is amazing! The only downside is that you have to come back more than once to try everything that catches your eye. Everything is absolutely delicious.
One of the best places to get your seafood fix. The platter is a good portion size for two, and it's a great place for a date or anniversary dinner. Will definitely be a place we come back to.
It was a fun experience enjoying anniversary. The oysters were outstanding and half price deal made it even better. The wine selection on the menu is good with lots of choices. One of us ordered Cioppino as main course and we were disappointed in the taste; fish and seafood quality was good, however the Cioppino broth was bland. I would not recommend ordering the Cioppino. One of us had the Turbot and that was prepared very well, with good taste - highly recommend.
Service was outstanding! Very intimate setting and romantic vibes. the food was amazing! Mouth watering!
Amazing experience overall!!! Can't wait to come back soon.
Best ever meal.
We had Ryan as a waiter and he was exceptional. Very knowledge and pleasant. We will definitely come back again and ask for Ryan.
Wonderful experience! oysters were outstanding! will go back again forsure! Craig ws our server and he was awesome.
Loved the octopus! Great food and evening! Great wine choices!
A girl friend and I went for dinner and drinks last night to celebrate my bday. It was honestly one of the best nights out I’ve had. The staff was fun, helpful, and attentive and the food and drinks were outstanding. Can’t wait to go back again soon!
The food was outstanding and the service was great! The seafood comes in fresh everyday and they offer complimentary popcorn when you are seated!
I've been struggling to find a good seafood restaurant in the city and I finally found one!
Highly recommend, however, when you go, prepare to use a chunk of your wallet. Other than that, amazing everything.
The service was excellent, tables spaces out nicely. Being on the top floor in the corner booth was intimate and nicely distanced from other diners. I would definitely go back.
Delicious food, great waiter. We had a lovely time.
Great food, drinks and service
It was my birthday. We felt rushed the entire time due to the two hour time limit. We like to enjoy our food and drinks and take our time. At the end the waitress did not even offer us dessert to go. I was a little upset as I have been there before for my birthday and they normally give you a dessert. They didn’t this time nor did they do anything in replace of.
Oysters weren’t very good and drinks weren’t that great
Food was amazing and our server was fantastic. The manager stopped by our table to ensure everything was to over satisfaction. We will visit again.
Amazing place! The food was delicious, the service excellent, really niece restaurant! Love it
The food is great(oyster, crab & lobster)10/10!! Our server is Awesome!!!
Its just that when I book the reservation I ask for a couch and a bright spot but unfortunately they didn’t give us what we requested and they gave the better seat to a larger group of people but then again our awesome server (i will try to remember her name and put it here) move us to a different spot with a couch and larger table because someone canceled! Still in a dark side of the restaurant but the effort of our server and the woman on the front is really appreciated!
Will definitely come back!!
We had such a great experience for our anniversary! The food was great and so was the service.
We loved the food at modern ocean! The service was amazing, and we enjoyed the dinner. However, I was very disappointed with the seating. They seated us in a dimly lit corner , were it was fairly cold. They definitely have some nice seating, and some less preferable ones. I would recommend to ask for a booth if you want to enjoy a nice ambiance.
This was our second visit as we are not in Calgary and everything from the food to the service was just as fabulous as the last time. Our server Ryan made excellent champagne suggestions and Natasha checked in on us a few times to ensure all guests were having a memorable dining experience. Disclaimer - not associated with them, lol, just a super fan of the food and such friendly atmosphere. We will make it a regular stop when in town. Thank you again to all of the staff :)
Amazing service! Honestly haven’t had exceptional service like that on such a busy day such as Valentine’s Day! You guys really made the experience amazing and such a great memorable time!! Food was amazing as well each dish was legit so good as well!! I recommend this place to everyone who wants to go for not just for the food but excellent service!! Thanks again 💯💯
Loved it Cant wait to go back. The octopus is amazing and great wine list!
Loved our meal at Modern Ocean. Oysters were fresh and we would definitely go back and take advantage of their Oyster Happy Hour!
Our last family meal our before COVID restrictions went back into effect. Our waiter was great...friendly, helpful and engaging. Food was spectacular, we will definitely go back when restrictions are lifted.
It’s was the first time there. Went with my daughter and we both had an amazing time. Food was spectacular and the service exceptional. Was so impressed will book again for my Birthday Jan 10. Can’t wait
The food was amazing and the service was excellent.
Went to Ocean for the mushroom and truffle festival. The food and service were outstanding! The warm crab in a jar was to die for. Wagyu dumplings delish and the grilled octopus was fantastic. And this was just the starters! I had the crab stuffed portobello and turbot for my entree and it was perfection. Ended the meal with the peach sorbet. Big serving! Cocktails were also wonderful. Our server was great as well. We will certainly be back. Thank you.
The food and service were excellent
Would absolutely come back! Loved the oysters and the massive scallops
When I say quiet, I enjoyed my meal due to the fact the table I was at was intimate, and we could hear the music and our conversation without anything being drowned out.
As for the food: I finally have a place to go to that replaces Catch. The seafood tasted fresh for being landlocked. I enjoyed many different dishes, and what appear to be the monthly trends they have will keep you coming back for more (October was Oyster month, November is Truffle month).
This place will keep me coming back. The people are friendly, the food is superior (including their "Turf") to many high end restaurants.
Give the Crab in a Jar a try... Fantastic
A slightly early birthday dinner! Stepped out to Modern Ocean - and it was terrific!!
Oysters to start for Robert-I chose the warm crab in a jar. Plus they give you salted popcorn cooked stove top in grapeseed oil & truffle oil. Very 😋
Mains - porcini turbot served on a crab stuffed portobello for Robert, & lobster risotto with black truffle for me. Even more 😋 😋😋😋
Something sweet to finish - creme brûlée for Robert & baked Alaska for me - I’ve never tried it before! 😋😋
Thank you, Modern Ocean - it was a fantastic evening!! Fiona was a terrific food guide - her service was top notch!
Excellent spot. Great food, great service, loved the ambiance.
We enjoyed date night very much. The ribeye and scallops were delish.
Great service! Server was very Knowledgeable. Enjoyed every course. Oysters were to die for.
Ryan made our evening. He was knowledgeable, patient and attentive. We’d go back jut for his great service! The oysters were FRESH and delicious.
Great friendly service. And amazing food and drinks. Highly recommend
Modern Ocean never disappoints
What a wonderful dinner experience! We went for Wednesday "Date Night" and the meal was absolutely delicious! The value for this weekly deal is really outstanding (as is their food). Highly recommend Modern Ocean!
