Lovely service. Delicious food. Just out of our price range for a typical night out. Great for a celebration though. For two of us (one drink each, one appetizer to share, one dessert to share, two coffees and two main courses) it was about $200 (with gratuity).

Sees has been one of my go to restaurants for 5 years now. I brought my now wife here on our first date when we were 20 and at 25, it's still our favorite. The Servers are always 10/10. The food is always wonderful and we love it. The menu doesn't change often but it always has seasonal fish and steaks made unique every day. Very good place to eat.

Haven't been there in 4 years. Back in the area now and went for Valentine's Day. Food has always been good, but now better--actually excellent. Great service. It is a bit pricy but if you want to dance, you've got to pay the band.

I loved your online reservation and follow-up confirmation. I had a business meeting for 7 with short notice and was given the VIP treatment. The food was excellent as always and impeccable service with a great atmosphere. Thanks.

The atmosphere is quiet and romantic and the meals were prepared very deliciously eloquent. The service was very professional and curtiouse always insuring that our needs were met with care. The wine and shop has a very unique wine tasting display that we've never seen before. I highy recomend DEWZ if your looking for a nice quiet leazure or romantic setting.

We have dined at DEWZ on many occasions over the years. My first impression on this visit was how steeply the prices for virtually everything on the menus had increased.
This was the first time ever that one of us had to ask the waiter to take an entrée back to the kitchen because it was cold by the time it was served. By the time the waiter returned with the replacement dish, we were both pretty much done eating.
Higher prices and slower service are not a great combination. The food was well prepared and tasted great, but it took a long time for the food to arrive after ordering our meals, and then one of the meals had already gotten cold by the time it arrived. I would normally rate this restaurant 5 stars, but not this time. Hopefully the next time we dine there, it will be better.

The food at Dewz was awesome.
My daughters enjoyed the specality drinks and I enjoyed wine from their extensive wine list, which you could get by the glass or bottle.
The appetizer menu was varied and included oysters in the half shell.
The Ceasar Salad was prepared tableside, nice touch.
The menu had choices for all including fresh fish, but we chose the steaks, filet mignon with an great sauce, and a crusted New York Steak, the food and the presentation were awesome.
I would not take small children. This is a meal that you take time to enjoy.

Dewz has never ever disappointed me. I always feel like I get the best service and the best meal of any downtown Modesto restaurant. Service is always top notch and their knowledge of the items they are serving is very respectable. Wine list is also a plus++. I have never regretted an evening spent at this restaurant

Took my 96 year old Mom, along with our sister and our nephew. Food was simply great and service was exceptional. We knew they took pics for special occasions and they didn't disappoint . More, they gave us a complimentary appetizer in addition to the ones we ordered. I had the veal entree and it was wonderful. Everyone else loved their selections. We topped it off with a shared crime brûlée carmelized at the table. The owner chatted for a nice amount of time with our Mom about her many grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great greats. Total foodie experience.

Once again Dewz was over the top. Lovely restaurant. Attentive wait staff. Amazing food. The perfect place to enjoy our 45th anniversary. Had the best waiter named Connor. Easy to talk to. Had some good suggestions, especially on a wine I will try to find for home. Sea bass was excellent. So was the Pork Shank. Our favorite place in town.

It is definitely not the place to go for a bargain meal, but the food and service are both excellent. Romantic birthday celebration for two with 2 meals, 2 glasses of wine each, and 2 appetizers: $240 with gratuity.

Amazing experience. I loved the staff. The food is always so flavorful, fresh, and delicious. I absolutely loved our server and I loved how everything flowed and everyone worked as a team. And it is such a beautiful place to bring a date or to celebrate a special occasion.

We have been eating at Dewz for the past 15 years and never have been disappointed. The servers are very professional, friendly, and knowledgeable about the menu. Everything on the menu is outstanding. The presentation is over the top. The courses are well timed and you never feel rushed to finish your dinner.

Everything about Dewz is world class. The service, atmosphere, decor, staff and let's not forget about the food and drinks. I can't say enough great things about Dewz. By far the finest restaurant in the Central Valley.

The food, wine and service were excellent. I thought the meal itself was a little pricey. We were seated next to a regular client and his wife and it turned out we had a whole bunch in common. Both wives birthdays were Dec. 7th, his wife had a knee replacement done by the same Doctor I did. His birthday is Feb.7th and mine is Jan 7th. I guess we should be known as the magnificent 7's. The owner was shocked when I told him the doggie box was actually for my German Shepherd.
All in all an interesting, fun evening.
