- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 11/14/2014I had been there a couple of years ago and the food was terrific. This time the salad and appetizer were great but the entres only fair. It is not a place for a quiet/ romantic dinner. Sound carries and even seated at a table for 2 was difficult to converse. The service was great though!Special Features:
- Loved it!OpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 11/7/2014**Keep in mind we went during "mud season" - early November when Breck is a virtual ghost town. We went early to get a good table because the other reviews said upstairs was a great spot. It didn't disappoint! We were the only ones upstairs for the first half of our meal with a table right in front of the big window overlooking Mainstreet. We were there for a romantic dinner and the host seated us thoughtfully. The service was attentive. The menu is really creative and almost everything was excellent. The only drawback was the Sriracha Caesar salad - I was really excited about it but it was kind of boring. It tasted great as a normal Caesar, just didn't have the heat you'd expect from the name - couldn't taste the Sriracha at all.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Unique cuisine in the mountainsProphetMonkeyVIPDined on 11/1/2014Modis is a "higher end" restaurant that still is pretty casual and low key. The food is good with some truly unique dishes including their version of ramen. (Ramen in the Rockies! Definitely unique!) When we were there, they had a excellent swordfish/quinoa dish. They have a good happy hour with a decent selection of appetizers and wine selection.Special Features:
- Superb food, excellent barAlmaVIPDined on 10/24/2014We picked Modis for dinner on our first night in Breckenridge based on the sample menu online and it did not disappoint. Modis has a small menu where every item on it is crafted to perfection. But the real thrill was the cocktail menu - everything from an Aviation, to a Last Word, to a sublime Sazerac and any classic you can think of in between.Special Features:
- Good VisitbriankDined on 10/19/2014Delightful experience. Good ambiance, extensive bar offerings, great service, limited but well prepared menu options. We enjoyed the lamb shank, pot pie and ribeye steak.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Hands on owners and good foodTrishDined on 10/18/2014Modis is doing a good job in the Breckenridge restaurant scene. Food is creative, atmosphere is energetic, wait staff are well trained and friendly, and young owners who make it a point to visit the tables and say more than, "how are your dinners?" I had the mussels appetizer and lamb shank entree. Both were delicious. We will go many more times.Special Features:
- Wonderful!JohnDined on 10/17/2014Our new favorite place for a nice meal in Breckenridge! Overall great food, drinks and ambiance. Dont forget about the early and late night happy hour.Special Features:
- Enjoyable eveningClipperDined on 10/9/2014Simple to make the reservation, we were in a time frame that we had a choice table. The food very good, the Mussels and sauce were Outsanding, Pot Pie Delicious and the finsh of Sorbet Great!Special Features:
- Great Food!LookingForGoodFoodVIPDined on 10/5/2014We were thrilled to find Modis! We got there early, so had our pick of tables and a very attentive waiter. We sat upstairs with a center table overlooking the mountains and the moon coming up. They also have a great upstairs deck, but it was getting too cold to sit out there. It was quiet, but probably gets loud when it gets more crowded. We loved everything we ordered - I had the Cold Turkey Sliders from the Happy Hour menu - delicious - wonderful flavors included cranberry and (what I think was) sage gravy that came on the side! My husband had the Turkey Pot Pie - also delicious with a beautiful crust on top! My 5 year old ordered Fish and Chips and ate all the fish. So glad we stumbled upon this place - we will be back!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 9/28/2014Amazing food. Superb Service! A definite must when you are in Breckenridge CO!!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Awesome!coloradogirlDined on 9/27/2014Anytime we visit Breck with friends and want to take them out to dinner we take them here, also great food at a restaurant that is kid friendly, which is sometimes hard to find!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Twin Birthday Worthy!UmalaDined on 9/26/2014My sister and I came to Modis after reviewing local restaurants on Yelp. The food and drink did not disappoint. It was beautifully presented with excellent flavors and textures. We were both really happy!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great atmosphereRocknfoodDined on 9/18/2014Great set up with balcony, bar or roof top dining. Eclectic food choices: some over the top amazing and unique, others just ok. Sweet potatoe chips were fabulous, service was great. Noodle bowl brings rating down as pork was very tough and poorly cooked- I took it out and loved the rest. Little loud, but still able to talk at table.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Pleasently surprisedBoblovesfoodDined on 9/17/2014Modis changed hands a while ago and I was hearing mixed reviews on the food. Our options were limited as it is shoulder season in Breckenridge. We flipped a coin and decided to give Modis a try. We were pleasantly surprised how wonderful the food was and the selection. They made a menu change that day and there was some confusion when we ordered, however the waiter made corrections very quickly and was responsive to our needs. Modis is back on my list of favorites in Breckenridge.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Pleasant DinnerFoodieFanVIPDined on 9/14/2014It was unusually quiet at Modis the evening we went and were told that it was due to Octoberfest. However, we were seated at a nice table upstairs and enjoyed a quiet dinner with friends. Our server was friendly and helpful and did her best to make our experience pleasant.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Getting BetterwatchtowersingDined on 9/11/2014We've been here a few times, it's nice to know that they are getting better. The music is still really strange, but a lot better than it used to be (it used to be rap music backyard without the voice which just sounded horrid). The food has improved as has the general feel, it is much more welcoming than it used to be. The food itself was well presented and cooked very well. All three of use were happy with our meals.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Very good - menu changesOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 9/5/2014We have eaten here the two times we visited Breckenridge. It's been great both times. The menu changes every season so I was disappointed that the ramen dish I enjoyed on our first trip wasn't available on our second. However, I did enjoy the squid ink ravioli on our second trip. The meat and cheese board was great both times. And the wine list is solid. Definitely a must-visit if you are in Breckenridge.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- So Much PotentialMeandMyBrideVIPDined on 9/3/2014Modis has a beautiful bar, modern decor, two story windows giving an amazing view from the upper level. They have the most extensive mixed drink list we've ever seen. The service was adequate; server was probably a little too "baked". The menu even makes you want to try this place. Food presentation is nice. Where they do not deliver is flavor. We ordered 4 dishes, but all were taste bud boredom. There are many good meals to be had in Breckinridge, but this one was a wasted dining experience and a blown $100. If they ever deliver food quality to match the rest of the potential of this place there is no stopping them.
- Phenomenal *****EASJSEDined on 9/3/2014We dined here the first night arriving in Breck for our honeymoon. Modis was recommended by several friends. I had a home in Breck until 2007 and am thrilled that fine dining has finally hit town. We loved our dinner and came back the next two days.Special Features:
- RecommendedMikeDined on 8/31/2014Was recommended by a local. Great place to eat and have a couple of drinks. Great service! Wife's steak wasn't hot when it came out. Really, only complaint.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Modis is tops!sjltDined on 8/30/2014Creative, diverse menu, interesting & delicious preparation of food and lovely presentation. Nice variety of background music with lively fun vibe. This is NOT your hamburger joint. Best up-scale restaurant in Breck! Highly recommend both the hoisin chicken and the saddle of lamb. Get a table on the second level if you'd like a view of the setting sun over the mountains and a little quieter location. It's very nice to see the owner actively overseeing everything to ensure top service to her clients.Special Features:
- Awesome food yet againOpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 8/27/2014This is our second time there and I think it was even better. We were seated upstairs and hadn't been up there. Really gorgeous views!! Would recommend sitting upstairs before the sun goes down to see the mountains.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 8/16/2014Have dined here many times and it never disappoints!Special Features:
- Really loud, but good foodOpenTable Diner Since 2005Dined on 8/15/2014Menu was not as good as usual. Food was good, I had Asian chicken. It was really good, but lamb shoulder I had on a previous night was disappointing. Not really a stand alone cut of meat. Interesting wine list. Seemed noisier than usual.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great foodTexasgirlDined on 8/15/2014Second time we have taken out of town guests to Modis for dinner. The food is excellent. There were several gluten free choices for one one of our guests. The wine list is outstanding and they always have wine specials. The only drawback to a perfect experience is the noise level which is very highSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Second visit not up to first1MHFoodieVIPDined on 8/1/2014We dined a second time in a week following an impressive family dinner. Unfortunately, the second visit without the grandkids wasn't up to par. Timing and service were terrible. We felt rushed as our soup arrived with our cocktails. The cauliflower soup was tasty but only like warm, and the kale garnish was tough and unnecessary. My entree, the flank steak, arrived lukewarm as well as rarer than I would like. The server didn't ask after us until it was time for the tip to be determined. Apparently Friday might isn't the might to dine at Modis.Special Features:
- MehOpenTable Diner Since 2007VIPDined on 8/1/2014We had high hopes for this pretty restaurant but our service was not so good. It was disappointing to say the least.
- The following 499 reviews are from the Modis reviews archive.
- RyanRDined on 7/27/2014The food was phenomenal, and the handcrafted cocktails were great as well. The service and demeanor of management left a lot to be desired. The server, who neglected to tell us her name greeted us by saying "if you don't see me, I'm not ignoring you, I have other tables with more needs." It was so nice to know our experience was important to her, and of course while we were celebrating my birthday. Rude throughout the meal. Front of house management was also extremely rude. Food was well worth the price from appetizers to main dishes.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- BestSuperbVIPDined on 7/23/2014We certainly did not go to every restaurant in Breckenridge during our 7+ day stay. Of the ones we went to, this was the BEST. We had Popcorn Cauliflower - unusual and very tasty; Mediterranean salad - tasty & fresh; Colorado Lamb - succulent and flavorful; Bass - well prepared and delicious. Nate, our server, was busy but attentive and helpful. We will return when next in Breckenridge.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- 1st trip to BreckTraciPDined on 7/11/2014Nice location on Main Street, try to get a table upstairs, very nice views. The pork belly appetizer was terrific, both entrees (fish of the moment and the ribs) were excellent. Would be nice up see a larger beer selection given the number of microbreweries in Colorado, but overall, nice date night and a really good meal.Special Features:
- Excellent food and serviceDeltaDawnDined on 7/10/2014I have been to Modis several times while vacationing in Breckenridge, and it quickly became my favorite restaurant in town. I took a group of colleagues from Washington that were in Summit County for a meeting - everyone got something different, and everyone loved their food. Service is always very knowledgeable and efficient.Special Features:
- Not a fanLLenDined on 7/6/2014Sorry, Modis. I had high hopes. The food was just mediocre. However, my jalapeno lemon drop was worth going back for happy hour.

- Fantastic ExperiencekrknoppDined on 6/30/2014We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Modis. It was so nice to get food that was worth the money we paid for it, not only because it was good quality food, but also because it took some creativity on the chef's part. Dessert was also wonderful.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Food , but Slow Night.river3Dined on 6/28/2014The food was great. The waitress was good, but the food and drinks came out way to slow.. they need more Service staff.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
