Had a delicious lunch today outdoors at Modern Plate. So many dishes to choose from and all with a unique twist. The cauliflower appetizer was amazing. Enjoyed 2 flat breads and had the slider trio. The inside is modern and the staff friendly. Will return!

I originally went for the Music Venue that is connected. So I made dinner reservations for Modern Plate just because it was easy, I have never been.I am so Happy, I couldn't stop telling people at the Venue, they need to try this place.Our server Ella was great, so friendly, same as the manger .But it was the food, particularly my Braised Ribs Risotto, it was Fabulous!! My dates plate was good as well. Dessert hit the spot. But I could not stop talking about the Risotto, it was out of this world.The whole menu was very reasonably pricedI'm am absolutely going back. Music or not, I'm coming back for the Food and the ambiance. And no matter how Great everything else looks on the menu. I cannot see myself ordering anything else but that Risotto. My mouth is watering as I type thisThis place is a Gem, and if possible, I'll certainly ask for Ella as our waitress.

Great place with lots of variety in the menu, very caring staff and they will go the extra step to ensure all guests are satisfied, also they did very good with the new stage in back from old spare keys days, great shows on Saturday night with a DJ after the band set, highly recommend this place to anyone stopping in elmhurst for a night out with friends or a bite to eat

At first I thought this place would try to be something it's not. An over hyped, way too expensive place with nEw AmErIcAn food. Instead it makes regular American food how it should be done. Great food for a more than reasonable price. (Never trust a new American place. Those are for liberals with no taste at all)

Great food and atmosphere. We ate outside on the sidewalk cafe. Kudos to our server Ty. She was very attentive and pleasant. Good employees are a key ingredient to a successful business and modern plate is lucky to have this young lady working for them.
