    For a set menu surf & turf for $119 PP I had higher expectations of quality at Modern. The tartare was not great as it was obvious it was prepared in the morning due to colour. The steak was meh. My salmon was the only star of the show. Then to add $45 for a $15 lobster tail and 20% gratuity on top of all that. Not seeing the value and will definitely NOT do this again at this place. I love Modern for a nice dinner out but did not see the value here.

    Service was excellent but Tuesday deal was very disappointing. Bone in strip loin was really tough, not juicy and also Galic confit was really cold and smells kinda stale hard to eat. I really cannot recommend 99 dollar deal at all.

    One of the best Thursday Steak specials. $49 for surf and turf. Amazing serving. The flaming Alaska is a nice end to a meal. Plus the complimentary truffle popcorn is addictive. Definitely worth checking out on date night

    We found it to be overpriced, the scallops disappointing (those tiny little 1cm cocktail scallops) and mushy, zero texture lobster tails (we had the surf and turf). The steak was good, the seafood was meh for the price.

    The service was amazing. We were originally confused by the Modern Ocean/Modern Steak concept but the assumed manager quickly informed us we could order from any menu. The Date Night menu was awesome. Great deal and value. Food was good. Side were ok. Onion rings underwhelming but Brussels and carrots great. Steak cooked and seasoned perfect. Server was extremely attentive and knowledgeable and will definitely be back.

    Well - I have been before and quite enjoyed it. There seemed to be an issue with the kitchen this time. The food took forever - the steaks were undercooked - significantly. The waiter brought a dish out and didn't say it was hot and someone at our table burned themselves. So overall not a great experience this time. When you are charging their prices - they should do better

    Service was great, we had a good time however we were extremely disappointed with the grand seafood platter. I would not recommend that to anyone, especially for that price. We should have asked how it came out. Did not expect everything to be served cold.
