    Presentation is nouvelle cuisine: Pleasant visuals, small portions, on oversize plates. LoL. This is not the place to gorge after a massive day on the slopes. The taste and presentation are very nice. Bring your sweetheart here for the atmosphere and experience. Seating upstairs has the best interior view. Large groups will be stuffed into small tables. Definitely a good place for couples.

    The drinks are creative and well priced. Go for the drinks, truffle fries, and the meat/cheese butcher block and you be happy and satisfied. Hostess was very nice - I asked for our table to be reseated due to annoying loud woman and her toxic laugh nearby, and the hostess very nicely found a new table for us. Note to the waitstaff - you're almost there. Please, tuck in your shirts so you don't look like bums and please, please, don't read me all of your specials as soon as I've just sat down and am reading the drink list. I want to choose a drink first...I am not ready to hear about the dinner specials! Wait until we start looking at the dinner menu.

    Service a little to fast for us, had a cocktail and did not get time to relax with it before our appetizers were being served. We had an 8pm reservation and by 8;40 were done with dinner, we slowed them down by finishing our wine befor ordering dessert and coffee, but if we had kept up with them would have been in and out in an hour. Not what we are looking for in a good restaurant with great food.

    My husband ordered the lamb chops, a regular item we get when dining out. His were so delicious that I wished I had ordered it instead. I had the short rib and Sobi noodle dish. It was very good but nothing exceptional. Our waiter forgot to bring our salad. He seemed to be in another world. I would definitely go again for those lamb chops and hope to get another waiter.

    Wow! This place is amazing. Probably best meal my wife and I have had - ever. We are from Chicago, so the bar is set pretty high. The service was great. The food even better. Booking through open table was easy. We will definitely be coming back every time we visit Breckenridge.

    Modis was recommended to me by a global traveler with a particular palate. So glad we made reservations because we LOVED our dinner here! The atmosphere was great and their cocktails were delicious - I loved the Breck Bourbon Smash. We started with the butcher block and the soup of the day (potato coconut curry - amazing!). The fresh sourdough bread was served, at the perfect temperature and consistency, with a side plate of a mixture of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Entree orders included the pork chop, lamb chops, ravioli, and fish of the day (miso ginger tiger shrimp) that everyone raved about. Service was excellent too. This was one of the best meals out I have had in a while. I highly recommend Modis!

    We have been to Modis many times and always enjoyed it. Food was still good. Especially the PBJ Foie Gras. However, the service was much worse than usual. We felt rushed after only about 90 min and our wait staff even fussed about another table that was staying too long.

    We started with the Mussels, which were fantastic! I got the Ramen. In my opinion it was more like PHO. The dish was under seasoned. My friend got the stuffed chick breast. It was good, but a little to salty. Overall Modis has decent food. I probably would not eat here again.

    We ate here two years ago and were left with a great first impression, so we came back. Modis did not disappoint! The pork chop was outstanding as was the stuffed chicken breast. To start we had he quinoa "maki" rolls which were interesting and tasty. Dessert was to die for: PB & Frangelico cake. Yummy!! This is one of Breck's best restaurants.

    Modis had really interesting selections on the menu, I could tell they put lots of thought into creating unique flavor combinations and dishes. Some of these experiments were better than others, though. The quinoa veggie rolls were a little bland and starchy, and the black bean falafel was somewhat dry. On the other hand, the bourbon braised brussels sprouts were fantastic!!

    We called to tell them we were arriving late (buses running late) and they held our table for 5 which was in a premiere location. There was something for everyone on the menu including the kids and a vegetarian. The lamb was outstanding. Both kids had the buffalo lasagna and their plates were clean by meal's end (a rare event).

    Was in Breck for a week of skiing and we ate at every "nice" restaurant but on night 4 we are at Modis and we decided to eat there every night of the remainder of the trip. Food was fantastic, the venue itself wasn't well decorated or fancy but the food certainly made up for that. I can honestly say I would recommend the restaurant to anyone in the area.

The drink menu is fabulous. The dessert truffles were incredible. Also a shout out to the bartenders. We stopped into the bar for happy hour and all of them were friendly and willing to explain the extensive drink menu.

    After being seated by an unaccomodating hostess, who had no desire to give us a good table even though there were many available tables, we were then treated to a great experience by our friendly waitress. We started with unique cocktails. They have a great wine list at reasonable prices. It was difficult to decide on what entree to select. Our friends had the steak. I had the stuffed chicken breast and my wife had the noodle bowl. It may sound boring but the preparation, the sides and the flavors were outstanding.

    We were seated immediately upstairs which I thought would be a quieter location than downstairs were the bar was located. Our reservation was 6pm and by 7:00 the upstairs was fairly busy. The "noise" was actually the music being played. You could barely have a conversation it was so loud. I did ask if they could turn it down, but if they did, it wasn't noticeable. The cauliflower popcorn was yummy! We had the vegetable curry with chicken added - different, but good. My friend had the ramen soup which she enjoyed but it contained too many jalapeño peppers. Service was great. Our waiter checked on us several times.

    Nice setting, if you prefer quiet, I would recommend sitting upstairs as you have more bar noise on the lower level. Dinner choices were limited as there only about five entrees (+ the special) to choose from, but everything we ordered was delicious. Our service wasn’t bad but could have been better, we were wondering where our waiter was several times, but noticed the neighboring tables were well attended so I think it was just our waiter. Over all a nice dining experience and would go again.
