I have eaten there a few times and was not overly impressed, nor were my guests on one visit. The food is ok just not great, guess I was expecting more.

We had planned our company party moths in advance and 3 weeks before the planned event the original restaurant called and cancelled our reservation. Dewz made room for us and gave us exceptional service, great food, and made sure they had the wine we wanted. Needless to say, we will host there again next year.

Scott and his staff consistently provide Modesto THE ultimate dining experience . By far this is the best in Modesto . The bar is a nice place to meet after work and the menu is a nice variety . Prime rib - Caesar salad - prepared table side and personable servers .

This is one of the better restaurants in downtown Modesto. Food is excellent with a comparable wine list. Friendly service. They tell you at the time of ordering that this is not a fast restaurant. We found this to be true as it was a two hour meal but worth the wait if you have the time. You need to... More

We've eaten at Dewz many time. One time we had a debacle, but other than that, we've enjoyed the food and the staff. Food is usually top notch and we've found the staff to always be very friendly and accommodating. The only gripe is the food takes a long time. We kind of expect that going in now, but it... More

My wife and I ate here January 17. All the staff are very friendly and courteous. I had the duck with risotto. My wife had sea bass with risotto. The food was good. Just good. I was hoping for excellent. For dessert we shared the almond twill with vanilla ice cream. That was excellent.

From the minute we walked in the door, our party of 16 felt welcomed. The service was impeccable and the food was outstanding. I have not stopped talking about it😊

My husband and I save Dewz for special occasions. We are always treated well and the food is consistently great. Cant get fish like that anywhere else this side of the altamont. Wilbur is the best waiter around.
