Seven nights a week, live local bands take the stage at Montreal’s hottest live music bar and bistro. Modavie’s spirited setting encompasses two intimate floors and sets the scene for a night of great tunes and top dining . The bistro’s far-reaching wine menu hits just the right notes and helps round off succulent lamb, fish, beef, duck and inspired pasta dishes.
Great food, service and atmosphere. Musician was good, as usual. Lorenzo and staff took great care of us. I always come here when I'm in Montreal.
Fantastic experience all around. Great service, food, and atmosphere. The staff were incredible. A proper French bistro. Don't miss it.
Everything was wonderful!
Totally fine, average place that had some nice live jazz for brunch. Weirdly couldn't put an egg on my Croque Monsieur so perhaps they should look into hiring some talent for the kitchen.
Absolutely wonderful atmosphere and food! Best Osso Bucco I've ever had!
Our waitress, Caroline, was very good; very. attentive and personable.
Food incredible (specifically the lamb poutine and filet mignon). Music great. Service great. Ambiance beautiful! I would recommend this restaurant to every single person that is visiting Montreal. A true gem!
Watch out for additional charges for add-ons like sauces.
Wonderful! Food was excellent as was the service. Could not have been better. Would absolutely return next time we’re in Montreal.
Very nice and lively atmosphere with live music. Service was great! Food is not too fancy but very tasty. Salmon Gravlax was something to remember and come back for. Overall great experience.
The live music was great and you could really feel the passion of the musicians playing. The atmosphere was romantic; perfect place for a date. The food was yummy: we had the fried calamari (I like the fact that they give you 3 sauces), steak frites and chicken supreme. Steak was cooked perfectly as requested and the sauce on it was delicious. The chicken was slightly dry but the truffle mashed potatoes was the best I ever had. For dessert we ordered the passion mousse and it was a perfect way to end the meal. The service was very fast. Overall, the food was good but the portions were small for the price.
First meal in Montreal, a brunch date.
Loved the live music. Food was good as well as the service.
Plus de musique du style Rag Time, Dixieland,
J’ai déjà assisté à une chanteuse avec Clearence Clear Water Revival. Très très bon
Music was amazing and our meal was amazing! 8 pm reservations on a Friday night. The jazz ensemble was every bit as good as those we’ve heard on Beall Street and in New Orleans. Food was impressive from the lamb poutine to mussels to the cassoulet - we were indulgent and it was oh so good!
Went to celebrate my birthday my risotto was very good. However I didn’t like the lamb burger we ordered bc it wasn’t a burger. It was closer to a pulled pork sandwich.
The ambiance was very good with the music playing. The food was ok but not great.
Pas beaucoup de vin abordable rendant la facture un peu salée
Great night out !! The French Onion Soup is a MUST try !
The music was extremely loud, very unpleasant, painful at times. We were finally moved to a quieter part of the restaurant, which was better. The food and service was fine, but I didn’t realize the live band would have their volume extremely loud.
Really expensive for what it is. Overall quality (food, wine) is not there either. Live jazz is good, but so noisy around. Better a good internet jazz music in background at the end.
Excellente cuisine, bonne ambiance, très bon service
The foie gras was so disappointing that we had a hard time appreciating the rest of the dishes. We should probably go back to give the restaurant another chance. The leftovers in the doggie bag where actually quite good
Loved the ambiance, great service and attention! Thank you for a beautiful experience!
We had a wonderful time. The food was delicious, the service was attentive and friendly and the atmosphere was cozy and welcoming. And to top it off Lorenzo was as gracious a host as possible. Strongly recommend.
Loved it. Great atmosphere. Great food and drink. Very friendly.
C'était parfait, le repas délicieux, service impeccable et avec une musique de fonds en live. On a adoré
Amazing blues band was playing that night, but the guitarists wife got up second set and it was horrible! Took an 1:45 minutes in a 2 hour allotment, to receive our main dish, but it was very good.... would give a second chance but would definitely inquire about the entertainment!
Very nice ambiace with it's French style, the food was good and the wine very nice too. Great service!
Low quality food
The food was really good and the service was amazing. Highly recommended
Food tasted good but we were expecting something better.
Excellent a great night out with my fiancé
Excellent service! Nous avons passez une excellente soirée entre amis. L'ambiance jazz est très agréable mais nous étions très près du band donc il était un peu plus difficile de s'entendre mais c'est un détail par rapport a la qualité de la soirée passée, du service et de la qualité de la nourriture
Le cadre est tres joli, le repas etait bon mais pas incroyable par rapport à ce qu'on attendait
Il y a de la musique live jazz ce qui est normalement tres agréable mais dans ce cas c'etait tellement fort qu'on ne s'entendait pas parler et le bruit ambiant était enorme. On est ressortis stressés et fatigués de ce bruit non stop
Tried as part of Mtl á table but the food was a bit disappointing. Not bad, but not really good either. Just average.
Nous étions à moins de 1m du chansonnier. On devait parler très fort. Seul point négatif de ma soirée.
Great atmosphere and great food. A nice place to spend an evening with friends.
J'ai adoré: l'ambiance était super, le service était très agréable. Repas copieux et des plats délicieux.
Excellent rapport qualité prix! J'y retournerai avec plaisir. très bon chanteur aussi
Lively restaurant with wonderful food and ambiance. If you are looking for a quiet place, ask to be seated away from the entertainment. However, the entertainment is fantastic and really completes the experience. Lorenzo and his staff make you feel very welcome.
