  • The "Armada" is the simplest cocktail we've tried on a Wednesday, but it's certainly not boring! The slight sweetness from the sherry was complimented with a crisp bite of vodka.
  • The bacon wrapped dates are unbelievable.
  • The Paella Huertana is life altering!
  • 1/2 off wine bottles every Wednesday!
  • Try to get in for happy hour tapas
  • Great happy hour specials! Try the red sangria pitcher!
  • This is our favorite restaurant in St. Louis. The tapas beats most in Barcelona. We were there for nearly two weeks, and only found two restaurants with tapas as good as Modesto.
  • Excellent tapas. Check out happy hour at the bar for bites!
  • Excellent tapas.
  • The first full-scale authentically Spanish tapas bar in town in a long time is brash and fairly loud but also very good; even all the wines and cheeses are imported from Spain.
  • Modesto is a truly Spanish tapas restaurant -- even the wines and cheeses are imported from Spain. Pop pinxtos like a stuffed Gordal olive with blue cheese and almond!
  • Just because Modesto's "The Armada" has two ingredients in the glass doesn't mean it's boring.
  • Parking around here is a bear!!!!
  • I love Modesto - we eat here often - but the service has gotten tremendously slow and the wait time for food is worse. WTH.
  • Fried cauliflower. Hangar steak. Tres leches.
  • Amazing tapas, I recommend going during happy hour all day Tues
  • Croquetas de camaron!!!!
  • The flat bread w/ anchovy is awesommmmmeeee!!!
  • Try the Paquetes de Serrano
  • Great selection of Spanish wines-tell the server what you like and let him/her choose for you-they are quite knowledgable. Love the boquerones, pulpo, atun, and bunuelos. Get pudin de pan for dessert!
