Co-workers made reservations here and invited me to join them. First, the place is overpriced and this might be one of the reasons it was all but empty (but Ottawa is a quiet town in August). Drinks were quick to come but the food was slow. As a vegetarian, my choices were (not surprisingly) limited but there was some gnocchi.... More

We went here on Canada Day...so they had a fixed menu. The ambiance was nice..the food was average. We had the Adobo steak which came with fries. The steak was good the fries not so much. Pricy too at $38.00. Would we go back?? Probably not...the value just wasn't there.

I was here with a corporate group and it was an amazing experience. The food was exceptional from the sushi to the steak, it was amazing. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for great food and a modern atmosphere.

Too many other options - overpriced and 3 of the 4 meals were not very good. Slow service even though the restaurant was not busy.

The reason: Bad quality and terrible preparation. Waiting perios to get the dish was abnormally long for a more than half empty restaurant on a Saturday night in a busy area of down town Ottawa. Probably this probably explains that others may have had what I experienced. I would not go there and recommend to avoid it. The sirloin steak,... More

We left another steak house on Clarence Street after waiting a long time for service and decided to try this restaurant. We are very glad we did. Both the food and service were excellent. It saved the evening for us.

Had the grilled cheese of the day with the soup - absolutely delicious! Came in for a business lunch, loved the ambiance. The waitress was also very quick and courteous. Will definitely be back!

I had met Lee Wagner and John Leung many years ago at Restaurant 18 and when browsing Ottawa restaurants for somewhere to go, I came across information that they were in business together at Steak Modern. This became a no-brainer decision for me and made a reservation right away. The Steak Tartar was amazing, the flavors were fused together perfectly,... More
