Love Modesto's!Modesto's is my favorite topas restaurant in town!6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat' the rush?The restaurant was 50% full, yet the waiter was in a hurry to get us out the door. We later learned there was weather approaching, and this may have been a factor- if so, kindly state that fact so we don't think you are being so rude!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMMenu keeps getting betterBeen going here for years and always look forward to the new items on the menu. We're never disappointed and we leave very satiisfied. This time, I was beyond impressed with one of the newer tapas - the portk belly. I usually avoid pork belly dishes because there's too much fat and not enough pork. But Jessica recommended it and we trust her judgement. It was easily the best pork belly dish I've ever had! Crisp on the outside, tender on the inside, full of flavor and so little fat that i didn't leave a scrap. If you like pork even a little, go to Modesto, order it and enjoy! You won't be sorry.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery time we go to Modestos,Every time we go to Modestos, we order a few classic favorites such as the bistec and lobster, try something new, and always order a wine recommended by the server. This outing was no exception. And we discovered a new favorite Spanish that we are excited to drink at home!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMTaste the sangria!Get a pitcher of the red and the white....terrific!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved 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.

Fish dishes were too salty, meats were overcooked. Service variable.5/3/2013 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 AMSkip happy hour menu. TheSkip happy hour menu. The food was supposed to be bite size portions of their regular menu items. We found it to be a lower quality than the regular menu. Also bar service seems slower than regular dining room.4/26/2013 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 AMFood-mixed: main course wasFood-mixed: main course was too oily; tapas ,2 out of 3 were great.
Ambiance- table mate & I agreed it was too noisy for us.
Service- was great, well attended.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food - good portions,Great food - good portions, nice staff, good location. Can't really ask for more!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMModesto is a great tapas restaurantModesto is a great tapas restaurant with good variety. They bring the food out very fast. The initial service though is fair-probably could use a little more attention to detail. For example, after we had ordered, the waitress didn't take our menus away so we were just stuck with five extra menus. The overall experience is good, and I would definitely recommend this restaurant to people.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place is outstanding!This place is outstanding! Food is incredible and service is top of the line!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFavorite Tapas PlaceModesto has a beautiful, relaxed atmosphere and delectable small plates. 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! We ordered 8-9 plates for 4 people.....many of the plates our server highly recommended and everything was unbelievably good! This was our first visit here, but it will not be the last!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMy friend and I were celebratingMy friend and I were celebrating our birthdays, the food was fabulous and we were seated right awat. We were not sure about the Sangria and Modesto let is try a sample before deciding to order, I will definitely go back.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
