“Modis is a must for dinn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

New Owners (1 month) Justin and Tarin made us feel at home as we dined by coming to our table to ensure everything was OK and taking the time to talk. The staff were all so friendly and were very accomodating. We had trouble deciding entrees and settled on the halibut and pork chop after a starter Butcher's Block plater of tastey meats, cheeses, and condiments. Everything cooked and prepared to our liking. Martinis were perfect and wine list offered a wide variety even with a bottle of the day special. We never order desert but Nicole's description of the White Chocolate/Raspberry Mouse was so tempting that we ordered it. It was fantastic. There are SO MANY good restaurants in Breckenridge it is difficult to choose so I hope my 5 rating helps you decide to eat at Modis. Prices were what we expected and comparable to some of the better Chicago North Shore restaurants.

“Would recommend to a friend.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Good place, good service, good food. We have been here 3 or 4 times now. Recommended to friends the last time in and everyone was happy. The servers are friendly and attentive. Prices are reasonable considering the quality. Check out the happy hour.

“Oustanding food, great atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Modis has a great second floor deck if the weather is warm enough. Even inside though- the staircase to the second floor is very neat, providing several quiet 2 seater tables that have a great view and romantic setting. The first floor is very nice also, but if it is light outside- go to the second floor or the deck.

The halibut is fantastic at Modis- potato chip crusted. Also- the steak choice comes with a glaze and a spicy jam. normally like my steak without assistance, but these two helpers REALLY make the taste special, which is a rarity for me, I assure you. The salads are very fresh, the dressings excellent.

Modis also has very tasty truffle fries- worth the calories. The asparagus is also excellent.

The wine list is very good, the mixed drink list excellent as well.

This is a place worthy of your time. the entrees range from about $22 to $32, and they come with veggies and a starch, though salads are extra.

This place is for those a bit more selective insofar as atmosphere is concerned.

If that is you- give it a try, you will not come away disappointed or "ripped off", as can sometimes occur with more expensive places.
