Husband and I went for an early lunch (11:30 a.m.) on a weekday. Did not need a reservation at that time, but we did call ahead just in case. Found a parking spot right in front of the restaurant. Service was excellent and the food was outstanding! I had the fish and chips and substituted a salad instead of chips.... More

The service was good not great. The food on the other hand was amazing! Bleu cheese encrusted steak was cooked to perfection.

We sat at the bar mainly because we were brought to a seat, in nearly a empty dinning room that was like in the isle. So we asked if we could eat at the bar. The bartender seem to disappear for periods at a time so things went slower then expected. We had Sea bass and the salmon both were... More

The restaurant was full, yet the acoustics were so good we could hear each other easily. There is a separate tasting wine bar with booth seating, very nice with single pours from a wall wine display. Sample may kinds, pay for each separately as you must purchase a credit card with the amount you wish. All main dishes were excellent,... More

Great food and superb service! Best in this area. Not the cheapest, but it's worth it. Always leave the place full and satisfied. It's our go to place in town when we want a romantic meal for the two of us, and don't feel like driving too far. I love their halibut and Ceasar salad.

My wife and I had the pleasure of dining at Dewz Restaurant recently due to the generosity of some friends who gave us a gift card. We had been there before and we were not disappointed. We had a wonderful waiter who immediately made us feel at home. He was very knowledgeable, seemed genuinely interested in us and made excellent... More

My wife and I stayed in Modesto for one night on a road trip, and we had dinner at DEWZ. They had lost the reservation we made several weeks in advance; and after waiting around for 20 minutes, we were finally seated. (The morale of this story is to take along a printed copy of your reservation confirmation, as we... More

Dewz has always been great whenever we have eaten there. The quality of the food is wonderful and the surroundings are also lovely. It is not too expensive, but it is worth the price.

Thank Cquitt
