One of the best restaurants in town!

The food is always good, no matter what you order, and always beautifully presented. I especially enjoy their fish dishes. The food is fresh, and if possible, locally grown. The service is good - attentive, not intrusive. The desserts are ample in size - and very good! Love their bread pudding... read more

We had a group of five. The Halibut was excellent and the New York Stake was exceptional. The service was great and the atmosphere is quiet and peaceful. The dining experience was excellent.

Fun cocktail menu, Jack Rose was refreshing. Good menu for apps & entrées. Calamari was lightly fried, tasted great. Ordered a ceasar's salad to share. It's made fresh at the table. It was good, maybe a bit zesty from the mustard or tabasco. New York was cooked perfectly and tasted great. Wife liked her seafood & prawns. Service was fine,... More

This place is great! Awesome service from our waiter who also helped us out with directions. Really wish I would have got his name as I enjoy giving my server special shot outs (been in the biz). The baby kale salad is to die for. Thanks dewz and the dewz crew!

Great food and service. They have a great selection. The steaks are the best. The filet and baby kale salad are a perfect combination.

Dewz Restaurant is a very impressionable restaurant!! Me and my wife went for our Bi-weekly date night and this was our first time dining here. It's in old Downtown Modesto a very nice setting for outdoor dining, the inside is very inviting and romantic. The food and its presentation is amazing. Plus they have wine tasting next door which makes... More

Dewz is a really good restaurant; I give it a 5 because it's in Modesto and good food and service is hard to come by in the Central Valley IMO. If it were in the Bay Area, I'd probably give a 3.5 or 4. That being said, the food was really good. Four of my group of 5 adults and... More

The food is very good and well prepared. The wine and beer list is extensive. There is plenty of service. Almost too much.

I went to dinner with a friend and had an amazing time. The food was excellent, the service was perfect, and entertaining to boot! Best part was I forgot my purse and staff went out of their way to find me on Facebook to get it returned to me. Love this spot!

Drinks are great, food is over priced. Last visit the waiter talked my party into paying $15. Per person for an appetizer. The appetizer consisted of 4 oysters, a small slice of Brie, 2 raviolis and a small portion of calamari and some type of dip. This was not worth $60. The entire meal was more than $400. I feel...
