Overrated. Definitely, just a place to be seen. Nothing else is noteworthy. Food and Service were all meh. I guess if you've never had a proper fine dining experience, this is acceptable. But if you are paying the same amount of money, you should at least get what you pay for.

Just come for drinks

Ventanas at the modern is a beautiful restaurant. But We didn’t like the fact that they portray to be a very elegant place and Are so strict with the dress code which we witnessed not everyone followed the rules and still were able to get in. Food was not as good as expected. My cousin ordered scallops and octopus from dinner menu and she only got scallops not the octopus. Next thing you know instead of bringing her a new plate nice and warm, they brought her two tiny pieces of octopus. Drinks were not good either. Ambiance was ok but can be a bit more elegant as far as the crowd goes. We expected much more so I’m giving it 2 stars ⭐️ ⭐️

Everything was good except we were two people dining and without letting us know and also not specified on the menu, they added 18% gratuity to the check, since I didn’t know that in advance and didn’t notice it on the check They had added tip and in addition I left a cash tip , double tipped..they should notify about the automatic tip for a part of two

I loved this place the first couple of times I visited but lately, it has gone downhill. Horrible service doesn’t begin to capture my experience—the service was horrid and everything moved at a glacial pace. To make matters worse the restaurant automatically includes gratuity. Now, this is standard for large parties, but for 2 people? There’s no incentive for the servers to provide halfway decent service—i.e. it took 40 minutes to get a drink order and the server was upset about the fact that he was called out about it.

TL;DR: Avoid this place at ALL costs.

BEWARE of this place. Initially that let us to change the reservation to a little later because half of the party didn’t show up. Then the wait began from 945 all the way until 12 midnight. I read such great reviews and it looked beautiful, however the food was salty and by the time we got in the cooks and waitresses were over it. I would not recommend this place to anyone. Although the employees were nice the incredibly long wait times and salty food is what drove me away.

Very slow service, overpriced for the quality of food. Asked for medium well, took 1.5-2 hours to receive entree and all of the steak was under cooked. Medium well was rare, well done was medium. Would recommend for a drink and maybe appetizers but I would not dine here again

Place was nice. Food was good. We had a reservation for 9:45 but didn't get seated until almost 11 and ruined the plans for the rest of the night. We we kept asking how much longer to be seated- we kept getting the same response "a few more minutes". So be prepared to wait even if you have a reservation.
