Great restaurant I make it a point to visit Dewz whenever I am in Modesto. The wine is divine and the food is nothing short of spectacular. The most important element for me is they are consistent in service and food quality..

Best upscale place to eat in Modesto! The food is great and good portions. The wait staff is always friendly and informative. We ordered some wine, and the taste that they give you is almost as much as a regular pour. I have been there multiple times for dinner, and the food is always outstanding. The menu changes based on what is seasonally available. If you order the Caesar salad, they make the dressing from scratch in front of you! Our server was very knowledgeable about what wines would be good with our meal, and he even gave us a desert liqueur at the end of dinner on the house. Thanks Dewz for a great night!

The salads were fresh with the right amount of dressing. The entrees were so delicious. This was the best meal we have had at a restaurant in Modesto on many years. Dewz is outstanding. !!!!!
We loved everything we had and our waiter was awesome. Can't wait to go back

We went here for our anniversary and it was great!! Good food good service and everything went smoothly! I would highly recommend this place for a date night. A little spends but worth it! Everything was good!!
Miss the tablecloths! It is not the same with the bare tables. The service, food and wine continues to be excellent.

Dewz is our favorite, special-occasion dining location. Always look forward to the classy service and delicious foods.

The food was excellent, but the portions are too large to have a starter, salud, main course and dessert. Our waiter was very attentive and tried to make the evening extra special. The restaurant is nicely finished with an inviting atmosphere. I would suggest smaller portions and some trading on the bourbons and scotch kept on hand in the far.

Enjoyed a leisurely evening beginning with a cocktail in the bar. Never felt rushed, the service excellent. Food was great, too. From the table made Ceasar salad, the halibut entree, to the mocha caramel ice cream cake, loved every bite!

Server was friendly eventhough we arrived just before closing time. Too few menu options for kids.
I paid $50.00 for a cold flavorless filet mignon and $25.00 for 3 non-alcoholic drinks. would not go back and was definitely not happy when I left. Oysters were mediocre. Pasta was tasty as was the deserts. specialty drinks were a piece of liquid heaven but not worth $8.00 for a few oz.
Perfect Evening at Dewz
Thanks to Scott, Nathan, and the Dewz staff for another wonderful evening. We brought some special friends with us this evening and had really talked the place up. You certainly didn't disappoint. The food was great as always - finely got around to trying the chicken - outstanding. As with any meal, great service carries great food over the top, and we couldn't ask for better than Nathan. Truly a perfect evening at Dewz.

Once again, excellent!
Once again, excellent!
We arrived early on a Tuesday and invited friends from Stockton who had never experienced Dewz'. We don't come into Modesto often, but when we do Dewz is the place to go. Top notch food, very appropriate pricing, attentive and professional service, and a very pleasant ambience. Our friends told our wait person how much they enjoyed the dinner and what a pleasant atmosphere to have a conversation. What a great evening!
Graet Spot in Modesto
Scott and his team are wounderfull. If you are not in a hurry and really want to enjoy your meal Dewz is the spot in Modesto. They have a wonderful wine list and the menu is full from meats to fish dishes. The wait staff are knowledgeable and friendly. They do all the little things that make a dinning experience great. I have visited Dews several times and the quality and consistency is there for a first class dinning experience.
Saturday March 12th
I made a reservation on-line. The on-line service I used indicated there was only 1 reservation left, at the time I selected, but the restaurant was only half-full when I arrived. I was shown to my table promptly. The waiter was very knowlegable (sp) about the menu and took great emphasis on describing in detail all the various flavors of the many sauces that accompanied some selections. This place is a bit too pretentious for me but the bill turned out to be a little less than I expected despite my date having 2 glasses of wine and I had 2 bottles of beer. I could easily spent the same amount or less at Verona's Cucina or even Red Lobster (if you order the lobster specials)!!!! I asked to be out of the restaurant in 1 hour and 20 minutes but we ran 10 minutes late forcing my date to rush dessert so that we would not miss a show we were going to see. Overall, I would go to Dewz again. I recommend it as a good place to take a date, or for a special occasion, but not for a business dinner. Red Rum

We had eaten at Dewz before, we had good service, food was excellent, this time wasn't so good, loud, waited over 30 minutes for our salads, my husband ordered Jack Daniels, but was served another brand instead. I think next time we will try another restaurant.
Always have a great meal at Dewz. Was a little disappointed they had no Gallo Winery Chardonnay (Bridlewood, William Hill). Each brand I ordered, they were out of. Doesn't make for an impressive wine list if you don't have wine from one of the cities largest employers.
out of towner was impressed
We thought Dewz was a real find in Modesto. would recommend if your in Modesto or near and looking for a metro city feel. Great bartender, makes a killer martini. Desserts were definitely a super treat and one of the best parts of the menu.
Excellent service and food.

Our first time to Dewz. Service was impeccable! Ambiance was also great for my husband and I to have a quite dinner. Portion sizes a bit small, but appetizer and entrees were very good. While the table side Caesar salad was intended to be fun to watch, I didn't think the actual taste of the salad was all that great, we would get a different salad next time. Good location (walking distance) to Gallo Center for the Arts and would certainly go back to Dewz for another event in the Modesto area.
Everything was perfect for a birthday dinner, food, wine, and service! Totally enjoyed the experience
EXCELLENT SERVICE, GREAT FOOD AND PRESENTATION AS ALWAYS. LIKE EATING IN A SAN FRANCISCO RESTAURANT BUT IN MODESTO

We made a reservation with open table but when we arrived, they had no table in dining room for us. We sat at s table in bar area and it was probably better than being in the dining room! Great service. Great food.

Everything was excellent. The food surpassed all my expectations. The staff was extremely friendly and vet attentive. Only one negative thing and that was that I had a reservation for 7:30 and wasn't seated until 8:04 but they did seem to be quite busy and they immediately apologized about the wait. So all in all an amazing dinning experience.

Everything was exceptional as always! Took my special request of previous menu item without question. Service is top notch from bar tender, hostess, server and back servers... they perfectly compliment each other. Unfortunately, one patron was intoxicated and quite rude. He was left there by his party and felt it was his duty to include the remainder of the dining room in his folies. In all of our years this has been the only time anything like this has ever happened. If not for him this would have been yet another perfect experience. Thank you to the staff of Dewz! See you soon.
