Fun Night Out – Modesto is a great place to experience an alternative to ordinary dining. The food is tasty and interesting. For those unaccustomed to unusual foods and/or dining styles, Modesto is a really fun place to be. For those who do seek the atypical regularly, Modesto will not disappoint. I took a few friends who tend to opt for tradtional American or Italian fare, and while they were hesitant at first to dig in, the quality of the food and pleasantness of the atmosphere encouraged them and we had a great time.
Lively, colorful tapas bar draws a sophisticated clientele with convivial atmosphere and creative small plates. – In Short
Vivid, sun-drenched colors provide a suitable backdrop for the sophisticated crowd at this Hill hot spot. The menu is divided into tapas frias (cold tapas) and tapas calientes (hot). Patatas dos salsas is a zesty option, served with alioli; grilled lamb kabobs get their bite from tomato-onion salsa. American-sized entrees include chicken with saffron rice, Serrano bacon and vegetables. Service is friendly and efficient, though sometimes a bit overwhelmed.
WE WILL NEVER RETURN – LAST NIGHT WAS THE FIRST AND LAST TIME I WILL EVER GO TO MODEST. THW PAELLA WAS SO DRY. THE SANGRIA TASTED LIKE CRANBERRY JUICE. WE HAD THE OCTOPUS WHICH TASTED LIKE RUBBER. THE SPANISH HAM DISH MUST HAVE BEEN MADE EARLY IN THE DAY. THE HAM WAS VERY DRY TASTING. OVERALL THE FOOD WAS BAD. WE FINALLY ASKED TO SEE A MANAGER. WHEN THEY ARRIVED IT WAS NO BIG TO THEM. A BASIC IM SORRY THINGS WERE BAD HERE IS YOUR CHECK. THEY DID NOTHING TO TRY TO MAKE THINGS BETTER FOR US. WE WERE TREATED LIKE WE HAD THE PROBLEM NOT THEM.
WE WILL NEVER GO BACK AGAIN.
MODEST IS NOTHING LIKE TRUE SPANISH FOOD.
WE SCHOULD HAVE WENT TO "GUIDOS" DOWN THE STREET. AT LEAST THEY NO THERE SPANISH FOOD.
I WOULD TELL ANYONE LOOKING FOR GREAT SPANISH FOOD TO GO TO " GUIDOS".
Fun Place – Really good food. It is a fun place to go with friends. Make sure you order plenty of different dishes to share. Modesto is a good place to go to have dinner and drinks.
A great time! – I recently went to Modesto with some friends for my birthday. All of the plates were delicious. I was especially impressed by the helpful and attentive service.
like tacos? – This place is way to classy and ritzy, or so they think. It is Mexican food people 25 dollars for beans and rice, O it's spanish, then then thats ok. The help is nice but the food is not worth the price. Bottom line if you in the Hill eat Italian!
EXCELLENT – I RECENTLY VISITED MODESTO'S IN ST. LOUIS, MO. THEY HAVE THE MOST DELICIOUS FOODS AND DRINKS. WHAT A GREAT ATMOSPHERE ALSO. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS TAPAS BAR TO ANYONE. I HAD LOTS OF FUN AND THE WAIT STAFF WAS EXTREMELY HELPFUL, INFORMATIVE, AND CONSIDERATE. I WILL REVISIT THIS RESTAURANT EVERY TIME I RETURN TO ST LOUIS.
Jordan – I think that this resturant has a really nice feel and does an excellent job of potraying itself as a Sevillian bar. It reminds me of a bar called Que Puto; if I remember the name correctly. ALthough the prices are a bit high, it should be expected since much of it is imported. I loved the resturant and the service was great. I must note however I went in the middle of the afternoon and it was almost empty.
Excellent, Excellent – This was our first time at Modesto. The food was delicious, the drinks were exotic and mixed just right and the staff were absolutely delightful. Just good fun. None of the stuffiness of some other 'hill' restaurants...
What a good time!!
Top Tapas – The best food I've ever eaten! Great service, great chance to sample many different items.
