Eat Together


Tapas are a time-honored and cherished part of Spanish cuisine and culture. The tapa (from the verb tapar - to cover) originally was a slice of bread or cured ham placed over the mouth of a wine glass. As the popularity grew, so did the variety.

In Spain, tapas are much more than a culinary delight - they represent a lifestyle and
opportunity to share good times with friends in an uncrushed, carefree manner.

We encourage you to do the same at Modesto.

For over a decade, Modesto Tapas Bar and Restaurant has become the choice Spanish restaurant in St. Louis. Set on the Hill, Modesto's intimate and lively setting makes it one of St. Louis' most popular destinations for small groups as well as intimate dinners for two. 

From our extensive Spanish wine list to our olive oils and cheeses, everything we serve is crafted to allow you to experience the genuine taste of Spain. Our menu boasts traditional Spanish dishes like Tortilla Española and Paella Mixta as well as more contemporary fare like our Tocino con Salsa de Sarsamora, braised pork belly with blackberry sauce, and our Langosta Frita, a fried lobster tail served with chimichurri. 

Owners Brendan Marsden and Julie Block Fernandez paired their drive to deliver the best Spanish cuisine to St. Louis with the talents of their chef, Carlos Hernandez, whose extensive travels and passion for bringing true Spanish flavor to St. Louis are never more evident than in the dishes he prepares. Without hesitation or apology, they bring the best Spanish ingredients, some of which would not otherwise be available in our city, to Modesto. 

At Modesto, it is our absolute goal to deliver the experience of the true social essence of tapas: to eat, drink and share with your friends and family.
