Need a special occasion dinner place in / around Modesto

We're not familiar with the offerings there, but need to do something in that part of the world. The food tastes of the guests of honor run on the conservative side.

Any suggestions appreciated!

  1. I haven't been, but Agrippa's mention of prime rib and tableside Caesar Salad at Dewz caught my eye:

    and it is now at the top of my list for more upscale places to try in Modesto. If you go, please do report back.

    I like Harvest Moon downtown, but am not sure it is really upscale/special occasion. More of a midrange place.

    Harvest Moon Restaurant
    1213 I St, Modesto, CA 95354

    1505 J street, Modesto, CA 95354

    1. I really love Galleto in downtown. I belive it's owned by one of the Gallo family members. They have a fantastic bar and wine selection. The entrees are all fantastic and reasonably priced for the area.
