Dewz is our favorite place to go for good appetizers and craft drinks. The oysters on half shell and the lobster bisque are to die for. The bar offers a large selection of scotch and list of hand crafted drinks. This is a fine dining experience with great service from start to finish.

Lunch for business. Good service, very accommodating for a late guest. Lunch menu was okay. Lunch was soup and salad. Soup was above average and not expected.

My wife and I come here annually for our anniversary. The food and service are excellent and above average. The cost is high, which is why we eat here on very special occasions, but well worth it.

Scott has created a great atmosphere. Service is on-time and on-task. Food is the best. I love the Sea Bass. I keep going back to it regularly. Wine list is comprehensive.

Hit the first seating at 5:15 with a show call time of 7:00. 8 of us at the table. Seated promptly at 5:15, skipped past the pre-dinner appetizer menu and went right to the entree menu. Our table ordered veal chops, mahi-mahi, fettucine with prawns, and sea bass. All at the table agreed that the main courses were delicious. We... More

We went for my birthday and had my grandchild. They treated us with royalty. They offered him three different things to keep him happy. They gave us Brie on the house, and the food selection?! Exquisite! It is pricy, but well worth it for Modesto! Hector, our waiter, is excellent at what he does!

Dewz is a landmark in Modesto! It has the ambiance of a big city restaurant, but warm, personal service. A Cheese menu is presented first for appetizers. Then the entree menu is passed out. Daily specials, and a variety of stable menu items are available. The bar is terrific, as is the wine list. Scott, the owner, is a great... More

I have always loved the food at this restaurant. It is expensive and it is worth it with one exception. The Filet Mignon was on the menu as "market price". When I asked, was told $60 dollars. Ordering fish I understand, but not steak. I will go back when that pricing is off the menu.

Save your money and time. The entres were often buried under a mountain of stuff. The service was slow and we gave the place every opportunity to shine. The waitperson did his best, but for $300 plus dollars, we could have found better companionship.
