Anyone who has been ....enough said
for everyone else you get 100% real people with great customer service. The service level and the food would be 11 out of 10 (yes they are that nice and the food is that good)
Quick, and great could you ask for anything more?

Worth the Price – This Modesto masterpiece is pricey but the ingredients are super fresh. They cut no corners. My husband and I finally got a rare date night and truly enjoyed it. The service is five star and the spinach and potatoes was a new thing for me and is now my favorite. My husband is originally from Texas and compares all steak to what he grew up with. Very rarely finding the perfect cut. Not the case here. He normally complains about not having a "real" steak seasoned with just salt & pepper but the blue cheese incrusted filet kept him content and wanting to come back for more. This place is worth it.
Excellent Food! – For whatever reason my family HATES this place but I love it! Great wine suggestions, great bread pudding and fish!!! But like I said, the family cannot stand it. So beware picky eaters.
Sad to say, but wont be back – My wife and I have gone to dews quite a few times. I actually proposed to my wife at the old location. I love the food and service. The problem we've had the last few times is when we call for reservations they ask the occasion. Why would you market yourself as a special occasion only restaurant. I realized that we only go once a year, but last time our bill for two entrees and four drinks was 150$. Its absolutely insane!! Maybe if they charged 20 a plate instead of 30, or charged 20 dollars for a 10 dollar bottle of wine instead 35, more people would eat there. And do it more often. I love the food so much that I would eat there at least once a month if it was more affordable. I mean come on were in a recession here people. My wife and I have come to terms with the fact that it just isn't worth the money. I am willing to have lesser service in another restaurant if it will save my 75 dollars.... literally 75 dollars saved on a comparable meal. unbelievable??
BEST DINING, BEST WINE LIST, BEST COCKTAILS IN THE CENTRAL VALLEY – Recently had filet mignon...cooked perfect....flavor was outstanding....top notch & attentive service from all of the staff...the owner, a gracious host, shared with me their new cocktail recipe, Smashed Tomatoe, a new favorite ...
All of their soups are outstanding and the wine list is superb. The Best In The Central Valley for dining, a light meal or a drink. Atmosphere is warm yet metro...love it at Dewz.
Delicious and classy – This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend who stumbled upon it randomly, who could not stop raving about it. I went there a few weeks ago while visiting the area from New York, and I could not beleive there was such a great place in Modesto (no offense to Modesto). The service was superb, maybe a little over the top, but not overbearing.
The fried calamari app was one of the best I've ever eaten -- lightly battered, crispy, not chewy at all. Really the epitome of well done calamari. I didn't have the caesar salad, but they make the dressing from scratch tableside -- a nice touch. The mahi mahi with macadamia nut crust was another superlative dish. I am not a regular fish eater, and this was a delicious combination of textures and flavours (some orange flavoured sauce on it).
Prices were decent, portions large. Highly recommended!
LOVE IT! Best in town. – Wonderful restaurant and ambience. Food is delicious and come in great portions. I love the new location, which is a great update with dim lighting and a romantic feel. ...We had to reschedule our earlier reservation, and the owner himself called to speak with me. Very kind and accomodating.
I am done giving them a chance – Terribly inattentive service for our lunch party of 6 at 11:55AM on Saturday 8/18/07 with just 3 other tables occupied. No one ever asked how our food was. I waited 20 minutes for a glass of water after I did not order a "drink". Food ranged from very good (seafood pasta) to good(cobb salad) to fair(blackened snapper sandwich, with 6 bones in it)
$10.25/glass for Turkey Flat Rose? Retail $12 wine. That is an obscene markup on the only rose offered by the glass. This is my 5th time here and service has never been consistently good but today was flat poor. I am done with this place. Too many better choices (Bachus,Claytons, Tressetti's) etc
PS They have never replied to my comments to them via letter or email. Not service oriented.
Wonderful Atmosphere, Great Desserts, Nice Service – Dewz was a great experience. I made a reservation which I believe was lost but after the service & the food it was well worth the 15 min. wait. The wait staff was on top of their game. The wine list is huge. I had the Pineapple Upside Down Cake Martini which was sweet heaven. The atmosphere was nice to take your time & talk. My husband ordered the filet which was one of the best steaks he has had in his life & we travel quite a bit. Our server was kind & truly knew the menu inside & out. Someone had recommended the calamari to me at work so we went with it. It was a gigantic portion. It wasn't rubbery like calamrai can be at other eateries. Then of course we had to finish w/ the creme brulee. I guess they are kind of known for it b/c they change its flavor all the time. We had mango. The serving was plenty for 2 & they torch the dessert right in front of you. Scrumptious!!! We can't wait to take family or people from out of town here.
The best in the Valley – Dewz is a marvelous and scrumptuous restaurant for couples or large parties. The seafood is prepared to your liking and is by far the best you'll find in the Modesto area. The service is fantastic and exceptional. The ambiance and classy atmosphere is like that of a dining experience in the city. Since truly exceptional dining is rare in Modesto, you must try Dewz, for it's metropolitan style of dining.
