    I 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!

    **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.

    Modis 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.

    We 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.

    Modis 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.

    We 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!

    Great 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.

    Modis 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.

    We'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.

    We 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.

  • So Much Potential

    Modis 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.

    Creative, 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.

    Second 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 high

    We 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.

    The 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.

    We 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.
