Diner Reviews
  • "First time in Breckenridge, found this place just searching around on OpenTable. Oh man, what a great surprise. Everything was delicious--the weird miso vegetable soup (I cannot do it justice with words), the bread (simple things done right), the lamb, my scallops, the cookie sundae with caramel gelato, all of it delicious. The owner and her family were sitting next to us; she asked us how we were doing before we left and we ended up having a nice conversation. Final kudos for the cool art hanging on the walls. This is a cool looking place that has innovative and hearty food. I hope to come back and will be pleased to refer this place to all my friends."

  • "We usually go to Modis every time we're in Breckenridge. They have unusual food combinations which we find quite creative. Service has alwasy been very good."

  • "I have been here before on a separate trip and remembered how wonderful their drink menu was. I was impressed then and this remained that way after the fourth or fifth visit now. Instead of trying other establishments we continued to retrieve back there."

  • "Great scallop and pork belly dish! ramen not so good. best food in breck i think."

  • "We like to try a new place in Breckenridge each year, but this one will have us returning to it. We had truffle fries as an appetizer - we were starving after a long day on the slopes - and they hit the spot. Rather than our usual "let's each get something different and share with one another" we both had the strip steak with Brussels sprouts and potatoes. The sauce was a tiny bit too salty for me but delicious nonetheless. The meat was done to perfection. I had a Beseiged wine that was lovely though a tad expensive ($10 a glass or $35 a bottle, for a wine that you can buy for $15 a bottle at a local shop) and I had to have two glasses! The art in Modis comes from "Art on a Whim" - a local studio, and is just gorgeous."

  • "Modis delivered fantastic, inventive food. From appetizer to dessert, everything was delicious. The truffles were amazing and our server was attentive without being disruptive."

  • "We went to Modis for a light dinner - soup and salad especially the "Kitchen Sink" salad The soup as usual was delicious but the kitchen sink salad was disappointing. The greens were not fresh and rather wilted and the additions that make it the kitchen sink were skimpy We will return to Modis though because the food is usually outstanding"

  • "Our first time to eat at Modis. We had the mussels appetizer, very delicious with the warm bread to soak up the broth. Then the Arugula, greens salad - split - and was ample for two people. It was also good without being overdressed. Split the hangar steak entree. It was cooked to medium rare as requested, the brussels sprouts and potato were good. The meal was very satisfying both quantity and quality. Sitting upstairs is quieter. If you want to be where the action is, sit downstairs."

  • "Great food. Family of four loved every bite. Strongly recommend the Lamb T-Bone and Bison Short-Ribs."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Great concept, not well executed, crostini's on BLT salad were colorless and not toasted at a high enough temperature, the bacon lardons were clumsily cut. Smoked shrimp app was overcooked, rubbery shrimp, shisito peppers were pretty tasty. Scallop carbonara was good, scallops were perfectly cooked, though tazzo ham was cut up too thick and the sauce was heavy on the cream and stodgy. That was the best dish that we had. The ramen was ok but boring, dressed with too many fried things, the broth was kind of bland. The cocktails were delicious and the service was fantastic."

  • "I head up to Breck about every 3 months for a weekend out on the town. The food at Modis is delicious. The atmosphere is louder than if you went out for a nice meal in somewhere like Denver, but mild for a restaurant in Breck. Service was outstanding and the overall meal was a great way to end the day and get ready to hit up the night life."

  • "Two of us had fantastic dinners, while my husband's was surprisingly average (he said his strip steak was absolutely bland with virtually no seasoning but the brussel sprouts were tasty). The appetizers were very good (quinoa rolls and a gordita). The sound level was rather loud but we didn't find ourselves yelling to be heard. Our server had a bizarre habit of talking to us while glancing at himself repeatedly in the mirror behind our table as if he couldn't get enough of himself, his act got old quickly; he was attentive to filling our water glasses though. We'd give Modis another chance but not before sampling other recommended restaurants in the downtown area. We'd try Modis again possibly after sampling other local Breck restaurants."

  • "We ate at Modis in 2012 and thought it was wonderful. Unfortunately our return visit was not the same experience. The food was uninspiring and the restaurant was quite noisy."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The smoked Manhattan lived up to its hype and the black bean falafel veg dinner was outstanding. We did not have much room left after devouring the artisanal meat/cheese plate appetizers. Delicious food. Great service. We will be back for certain."

  • "My wife and I were looking for a restaurant to celebrate the end of an amazing week in Breckenridge and Modis was exactly what we wanted. The restaurant had this cool, classy vibe that still made us feel completely comfortable. The chicken stuffed with spinach and cheese was amazing and the wine paring was perfect. Definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a special night out or to celebrate the end of an amazing trip."

  • "Can't praise our waitress enough! She suggested great cocktails, the best starters, and a super tasty tuna main. Great time!"
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "I love this restaurant! The thing that initially attracted me was the mussels, and I have them for an appetizer every time I go. The only drawback is that their somewhat limited menu is heavy on cheese- it's hard to find a dish that doesn't include cheese."
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "We went to Modis for our vacation last year and was looking forward to a return visit. The menu had not changed much but they are now adding Jalapenos to just about every dish which completely destroys the flavor."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Have visited Modis on several occassions and have not been disappointed. Great menu selection. Great wine list. Fabulous service. Making a reservation is recommended."

  • "Perfect place for a couple to grab upscale quality food without the hassle of formal environment. We left the kids in the condo and had a nice adult dinner for two. Drink menu was fantastic-- make sure you order a "smoked" drink as they are not on the menu!"
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "Had an enjoyable time with family at Modis. Food choices were eclectic and family friendly at same time. Thankfully, the Manager stopped by the table to recommend the smoked infused manhattans - might be the finest cocktail ever!"

  • "We really enjoyed our dining experience. My boys loved their food off of the kids menu. We'll definitely go back!"
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "Got there for happy hour. Great specials. Ended up staying for dinner Scallops were excellent. Great drinks too. The Vieux Carre was one of the best. Rivals New Orleans where it was invented."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "Really enjoyed the upstairs dining area, more intimate than the downstairs area past the crowded bar; the cold smoked shrimp with roasted peppers were unbelievable as well as the Tomahawk pork chop and lets not forget the Rocky Mountain tart: high end ingredients, nice presentation and great wait staff. Husband and I were sharing the various dishes without any issues. A relatively cheap desert wine we ordered was not available and the bar hostess went out of her way to bring 3 alternatives. We ended up with a good size (excellent) Finger Lakes ice wine for the same price. Unbelievable service. Will be back for sure."

  • "love the food, experience and atmosphere. One of our favorites. cheers great job and never disappoints. 3 years in a row."

  • "Must have a reservation. 4 pages of amazing mixology cocktails. A little pricey at $12 each. Servers were appologetic for the slowserviceas they were short staffed. Food was delicious."

  • "It is always good but it was pretty noisy to a point it was hard to talk next time i will try to eat upstairs."

  • "Excellent food, where they were able to adjust the menu to requests, which lead to an outstanding meal. We did get delivered the wrong drink, but this was corrected before we said anything. Great time"

  • "Our group of 8 really enjoyed our dining experience. We made reservations & were seated promptly upon arrival. The cocktail menu was impressive as well as the wine list. The drinks, apps & entrees were amazing - everyone was impressed and that's tough to do with 8 foodies from New Orleans. Stand-outs were the mussels appetizer and lamb entree (we were all tasting each others food). The bill was very reasonable considering the amount of drinks & food for 8 people. My only complaints were: the table was a bit small for 8 of us, the temperature was too stuffy & warm inside, and the veggie entree while delicious the portion was smaller than expected...all very minor things. Overall, great experience & would highly recommend."

  • "Visiting Breckenridge from Chicago. I am a wine drinker and Modis was a treat. The owner is also the somm. She steered us around the reserve list. We chose a 2007 (great vintage) Cardinale's Peak from Terlato. Really enjoyed it. Food was great. The ambiance was fun. We ate early 5:45pm... it was the only time available on open table. And there were still some Apres -ski drinkers."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "I had been here before for a drink at the bar, so we thought we'd try to book a dinner. We were unimpressed with the entire dining experience. The dinning area felt crowded and uncomfortable. The menu was not very appealing, so we stuck with different appetizers and salads. The service was uneven. The value is not there for the price. We will not come here to dine again."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "I had read other reviews which described food as mediocre, and that is what I got. Bar scene great. Great wine list, an ebook type, but they don't let you peruse it. Instead the wine person directs you to a few select bottles."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Have been coming here since it opened. Outstanding, consistently excellent food. Good service. Creative food, beautiful presentation. Love the beet carpaccio! Our annual ski trip to Breckenridge would not be complete without a visit to Modis!"

  • "Delicious food and cocktails. I had the fettucine carbonara with scallops, and while it was DELICIOUS it was definitely super heavy, so tread carefully. I couldn't come close to finishing it!"

  • "Restaurant delivered per good reviews it get. Loud but energetic. Food innovative and delicious. Server very attentive - did not rush and explained specials, etc. real well. Only gripe would be the miserable hostess that seated us. (There are probably several so don't want to ding wrong one - this particularly one stood about 5'3 ish with dark hair.). She did not greet us, did not smile and seemed indignant when I told her we had a reservation, replying "you do" with a blank stare. Certainly didn't start night with a positive vibe, but food and service made up for her. It was Fri evening 2/21."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Service couldn't handle all the large groups so it was very slow. My son's steak came out in 2 portions because they couldn't meet the high demand. Not enough sound absorption so upstairs ( open to below) is very loud. Menu is interesting and the food was good."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "Overall great food and great drink menu, but food came out almost too fast. Not enough time in between courses to relax and digest. Felt a little rushed to eat each course. Service very good."
