Loved itThis was my 3rd time in and I've loved it every time. This time I brought my parents who were visiting from out of tow and we all absolutely raved about everything we had. Especially the cauliflower and the black paella. Our waiter was also wonderful. He recommended a bottle of wine at a very reasonable price that wasn't even on the wine list yet and it was wonderful. Highly recommend eating here!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat food, always interestinggreat food, always interesting dishes to be shared5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great time. ServiceHad a great time. Service and food were superb. Daughter is a vegetarian and we found many things for her to eat and enjoy. Had a wonderful experience and will return. We got seated on time and our waitress was very attentive and responsive.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMJust not for me...While the food here is good, I'm just not sure if I'll be returning. Nothing stood out quite enough to leave a lasting impression. To each their own, but with so many other superior dining options in STL, I'll probably skip this restaurant in the future.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favorite restaurants!We dine at Modesto a few times a year. We love to try new dishes each time we visit, but some of our favorite dishes are the Tortilla Española, Salchichas de la Casa, Gambas al Ajillo, Langosta Frita, and the Empanadillas. Service has always been good. We have been dining here for many years and everyone we have brought to the restaurant has thoroughly enjoyed the experience.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always the food was amazing.As always the food was amazing. Service was great! We always think of Modesto when we want great food!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMModesto is a favorite! AlwaysModesto is a favorite! Always great food and great service. They switch up the menu occasionally, which keeps things interesting!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time visitingThis was our first time visiting Modesto. I wasn't sure how busy it usually is so I made a reservation for 830 on a Saturday. When we arrived it was super busy and packed! I checked in and was told it may be 10 minutes after our reservation time. We were in no hurry and looked through the menu while we waited. The host was VERY nice and explained that he was sorry it was taking so long. We ended up finally getting sat at 905 (half hr past our reservation). They did buy our first round of drinks and apologized several times. It was well worth the wait in my opinion! I'm a vegetarian and there was a lot of options for me! The waitress gave wonderful recommendations and aside from the long wait I would highly recommend and visit again!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Pre-Theater DinnerWe needed to make an 8:00pm curtain at Grandel Theater and were running late. We informed our waitperson and she was amazing. Dishes arrived quickly and efficiently but we never felt rushed. Food was delicious as usual; drinks are wonderful. A great place for a long and leisurely meal or for a great pre-theater experience.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food - good portions,Great food - good portions, nice staff, good location.

Love it!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food but expensiveReally good food and a great ambiance, but can get expensive quickly if you order too many small dishes.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMModesto is a great tapas on the HilThis was the first time at Modesto. It was my daughter's birthday and she chose this restaurant! I personally, am a very picky eater, and even found several things to suit my pallet! The atmosphere, the staff, the Chardonney, the appearance of each food brought to our table was great!
We'll be back!3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is wonderful, everythingThe food is wonderful, everything we ate was like nothing I've had before (except the meatballs, which were still awesome). Great variety. The service is quick, our waitress took our order three different times and was very friendly. I'm a huge fan of Spanish food, and this is one of the best spots in St Louis for tapas. This poor college student can afford to come to a place like this maybe once a year, though. Definitely for special occasions or deep pockets.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary dinner with myAnniversary dinner with my wife and another couple. Fantastic meal! We dined 'family style', ordering 15 tapas and paella. The timing of the tapas was perfect, allowing us all to savor and discuss every serving. Plus, we're all world travelers... Dining in this fashion gave us an opportunity to share our experiences and compare them to the wonderful cuisine in front of us! Thank you for the memory! We'll be back!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was wonderful! WeThe food was wonderful!
