Modis Ratings and Reviews
The service was by far the best part of our experience. Our waitress Devynn was awesome. The food choices on the menu were not great this visit, so we had the salmon special. It was a great choice. The only negative about our visit this time was the noise level. We we're seated at a table adjacent to the bar area and it was very noisy and difficult to carry on a conversation during dinner.
It's still off-season in Breck, so most spots are hungry for customers. This place has a nice vibe and we had a nice time. Food is as good as you'll find on Main St for their price range. They participated in the local 'Passport' program, so we earned a built-in discount also. The beef short-rib entree was quite good.
As always the food at Modis was delicious. My husband and I both had the fried chicken and waffles for dinner. The chicken portion was so big we could have split the entree. The waffles, brushed with syrup, were toasted to perfect. The batter on the fried chicken was thick and crispy.
After reading some mixed reviews, we were a bit hesitant to book a table at Modis but decided to try it anyway. We went early and it wasn't crowded at all except for a very lively crowd in the bar area. Our server was very responsive and prompt with our order. My husband ordered the short ribs and I had a salmon dish and a beet salad. The food was excellent! We both commented that it was one of the best meals we had in awhile. Also, the host stopped by our table to ask about our meal - which was a nice touch and always appreciated. If we are ever in Breckinridge again, we will come back to Modis.
Modis has a good bar scene and a good restaurant, we prefer to sit in the bar and have dinner but if you want a quieter dinner upstairs there are some more private tables. The food is always inventive with great vegetarian options; the menu changes regularly and reflects local produce. Bar staff are attentive and make great cocktails. Wine list is extensive and reasonably priced. Happy hour is good value with good bar snacks.
Meal took 1 hour & 20 minutes, appetizers were delivered in 15 minutes. Food was not prepared correctly --- over done. No offer of free drinks or comp. due to slow service. People at table next to us left after waiting too long for food --- they called in for a pizza down the street after getting frustrated. Deck heaters ---- 1 out of 7 worked. Terrible experience!!! Will tell all friends to avoid & very overpriced for this crappy of an experience!!
Our dinner was simply delightful from start to finish! Divine three peas app. Also, the curry soup and salad of the day were both excellent! Our entrees were delicious and the cheesecake and ice cream puffs yummy too! Over all a wonderful dining experience!
Everything was good for our party of 5. Modis is a good restaurant. One complaint - when two people are sharing a salad or meal - prices warrant that it should be split in the kitchen and not bringing an extra plate to the table for the customer to split. First of all we are not given spatulas or large serving utensils in which to split the dish. Once split at the table with a dinner fork and knife by the customer the dish loses all appeal because the presentation has been butchered. Not splitting in the kitchen is pure laziness on the staff's part. Management should address this immediately.
We were not overwhelmed with the food. One person had the Halibut Cheeks, which they were "trying out" on the menu, but it was so over salted that it was inedible. When mentioned to our server, he was indifferent and said no one else had mentioned it. Another person had the scallops and also felt they were too salty. The seasonal salad with grilled peaches was outstanding.
Everything from the wine, food, and the service were excellent. The wine list offers a unique selection at reasonable prices. The portions are substantial and well priced. There were several vegetarian options available which was greatly appreciated. The food is beautifully prepared, well seasoned and delicious.
I would definitely return and recommend.
The seasonal salad my husband and I shared was the best salad we've ever had at a restaurant. We went all out and got the wagyu steak with bone marrow fried rice. It was all delicious except the chef did not cook the steak medium as we had asked for. It was rare. And therefore, so chewy I had to spit out some of my bites. Disappointing considering the cost. But everything else was divine tasting.
Our server was pleasant, but drinks and food came out slowly. The rabbit pasta was very dry and when we told our server she brought out additional sauce, so that was a good thing. The tomato salad was huge, more of a dinner size rather than a first course. The curry soup was quite spicy and delicious. We really wanted to like Modis, but it missed the mark for us.
Service was really slow, food was very expensive. The presentation of the food was very pretty and artistic, but the flavor was not great. I had the "best" steak on the menu for $50 and it was chewy, no flavor, the rice that came with it had a horrible flavor. The drink I ordered from the bar was too strong to even drink. Other people in my group were not pleased with their meals either. Was a real disappointment. Hoped it would be great based on the other reviews.
Made reservations based on reviews and everyone in our group loved their food! From the owner who is very present to the bartenders and servers, we received excellent service. Happy hour is a good time to go as you can try craft beers, wines and cocktails at a discounted rate as well as appetizers. Highly recommend the mussels- they were excellent! We liked them so much we went back a 2nd time for them! Also enjoyed the unique menu with octopus, different combos and meats and definitely something for everyone. If you're a foodie, stop in! Definitely one of our favorite spots!
Modis never fails to provide a great dining experience. We have dined there numerous times, Summer and Winter. Their cocktails are fantastic, and they offer the widest variety of cocktails in Breckenridge, to my knowledge. From amazing appetizers (you've got to try the Sticky Ribs) to delicate, wholesome salads, to "solid" meat and seafood entrees (you can get vegetarian dishes and oriental fusion dishes as well) served with creative sauces and wonderful sides, to delicious and original desserts, Modis offers great meals, served by knowledgeable and gracious staff. We visit Breckenridge very often; there are many good restaurants in Breck. Modis is, overall, the best for original and satisfying meals.
