Food was good and location was good, I found the staff slow, it took a long time to get the check and it seemed that the manager was not interested in helping the wait staff

We’ve eaten here several times, and up until 9 months ago or so, it was among our favorite mid-scale restaurants. The quality of service has steadily declined in that period. Last night was the straw that broke the camel’s back for me. Very few tables were occupied, and yet it took far too long for our server to even acknowledge... More

Stopped here after a ride in the country to see the leaves. The restaurant was mostly empty at 2:30 pm . A few couples were watching the football game. My wife ordered the seafood stuffed portobello mushroom and I ordered a bowl of chowder and calamari. The chowder arrived hot and was very good. My wife's dinner arrived and had... More

Italian and Mexican dishes were just wonderful. Servers were prompt and attentive. We were all too full to order dessert, but they looked wonderful on the cart. Maybe next time. We had reservations at 5:30, but they weren't needed at that hour. By 7pm it was much busier, and I would recommend them.

This place has been here for years. Th exterior looks a little run down but the inside is nice. Food, wait staff, seating is very good. Have eaten here several times and always good. They also have a full bar.

Nice dining room, good service and very good Mexican food. On the expensive side but worth the money since the food and service is much better than average.

Food is good, service is also good. Slightly dated interior, but clean. I enjoyed my meal and would return.

Let me start off by saying I have never made a Facebook review of a restaurant nor would take the time to make a review on Yelp but I am so angry with how our night began and ended at this so called establishment I just had to. This was not our first time at Modestos's. We came TWICE before... More

Modesto's is a great restaurant. The food and service are excellent. It is a friendly atmosphere, and the cuisine includes a variety for all tastes including seafood, Italian, and Mexican. The food is always consistent. They have a nice wine list, and really good desserts.

I stopped in for some Italian one day after work, and wished I had gone elsewhere. The service was average, the food was only okay, and I paid way too much for what I ordered. I ordered the seafood pasta special, and just felt like the quality was not up to par.
