About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Permanently Closed - Modesto Tapas Bar and Restaurant is St. Louis' first Spanish tapas restaurant. Tapas are a time-honored and cherished part of Spanish cuisine. The tapa (from the verb tapar - to cover) originally was a slice of bread or cured ham placed over the mouth of a wine glass. As the popularity of the custom grew, so did the variety. In Spain, tapas are much more than a culinary delight - they represent a lifestyle - an opportunity to share good times with friends in an unrushed, carefree manner. At Modesto guests are encouraged to do the same.

Ashame this restaurant is closing. It was my absolute favorite. But we were told the staff would remain the same for the new restaurant to take it's place.

Our experience is irrelevant because Modesto is closing as of tonight, 8/20. The owners will introduce a new concept restaurant in September. So many of us who were frequent Modesto patrons over 15 years will miss it, but we will embrace the new.

I've always had excellent meals here. Their take on Spanish Tapas is very good. Sadly however they are closing and going a different direction. Some sort of take on a pizza place, just what St Louis needs is another pizza joint (place) and of all places on 'The Hill'. Good luck with that!

Good Spanish cuisine. Friendly. Had a nice wine list but a bit depleted as they are closing their doors in 2 days.

It's a shame that Modesto is closing on the 20th of August. I truly believe its vibrant scene and its delicious menu will be missed by all!!!

My friend and I went before it closes. Hate that it going away and being replaced by PIZZA. I have celebrated many occasions there...falling in love with my wife, book-club with the girls, shoulder for friends in sorrow, just because happy hours and many more. Wish the restaurant good luck in the next journey

Wanted to get in one last time before they close. Thanks, Modesto! Server was very informative on wines, etc--just a bit frazzled; it was busy.

This was the first place I took my wife when we were dating. We are so sad to see this place go. Hope the new pizza place is just as good.

The variety of food is great. The food was delicious. The service was at times indifferent and not overly friendly.

I had never been to Modesto prior, however, my wife had been once. We went for our 40th anniversary. The restaurant was clean and you could tell the management took pride and care in the surroundings. The food was delightful and much better than I anticipated. Even though we enjoyed the restaurant and our dinner, there were problems that bothered me. We were seated right away and told our waitress would be Elaine. She took our order and brought us our first dish. Then Karen came over and said she was replacing Elaine. Karen was very busy and didn't pay much attention to our table. The 2nd plate of potatoes, came by itself. It took over 15 minutes before the 3rd and 4th dish arrived. 30 minutes after this, our final dish arrived. Even though I had stated in my reservation that it was our 40th Anniversary, no mention of this was every made by management nor our waitress. Also, after dinner, I went to use the men's restaurant and it was dirty and awful. My wife said the Women's restaurant was clean and fine. We will go back to this restaurant, however, management needs to sharpen their attention to details. Overall, the food was delicious and presented a good value. Service was not good and there was no reason for this as the restaurant wasn't that busy.
