After an interesting tour at the Israel Museum, Modern was the perfect repast! Delicious food, good prices and especially friendly staff! Our server Nathan, was professional, knowledgable and served us as friends or family! I recommend Modern anytime you're in the city!

Right at the heart of the Israelí Museum lies a very good restaurant where we had great Hamburgers and Chicken sandwiches. Both perfectly cooked and served. Cold beer and wine to top it off. Service is nice and gentle.

We had our Bat Mitzvah celebration here and Tami was so easy to work with! She made making a party from overseas easy. The food was excellent and they accommodated dietary issues on the spot! Thank you for helping us make our occasion so memorable.

My wife and I chose the "business lunch" special. This included an entree, soup/salad, and a lemonade. I had the pasta with beef filling and my wife had the beef/apricot kebab. We found both dishes to be quite good and flavorful. If you are visiting...More
