“well...average...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

The restaurant resides within the Israel Museum which is of course very convenient for visitors. I took the business lunch - the meal was a bit pricey for the quality of food, the food was fine, no more (wasn't bad though) everything was fresh and of good quality but the preparation was dry and somewhat uninspired, the service was unprofessional but kind and helpful, the atmosphere was very nice and casual though a bit noisy (acoustics...) I wouldn't recommend coming especially, but for a hearty meal in the middle of a day at the museum it's a good choice.

“Just the place for a mid-museum break”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

When you've spent the first half the day seeing a small section of the Museum and you're ready for a break, the Modern (a kosher meat restaurant) is just the right place. Service is very good, the food is VERY good, the atmosphere pleasant and relaxed. After the lunch crowd leaves (between 1300 and 1400) is the best time.

“has potential, but requires patience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

I've eaten lunch there a number of times and the menu is good, although a little expensive. Meat, kosher, with a middle eastern flair. Their kebab dish is very tasty but the last time the kebab pieces came half warm and half cold...and that was after waiting a VERY long time. Salads are very good, soups less. Salmon was perfectly prepared and very delicious. But don't bother if you need to keep to a schedule. The service seems disorganized and is slow.
