Great atmosphere, food, music and service. Enjoy!
Charcuterie is amazing. I would say the best ones I had in Montreal. I felt I was in a small French, Spanish or Italian town having local food. I asked about the cold meats and we were told they were local from QC. Really great quality!
good for a Business lunch, service is swift and they know to respect an ongoing conversation.
Stellar maitre-d. Great waiters. Amazing and authentic french food. Live music performed by an artist who belongs to a concert venue.
This was a premium experience and steps from our Old Montreal hotel
Food service and music are very good
Location is convenient
Thank you so much, StephenK! We hope to see you again soon!
I’d stopped in for a late lunch after arriving in Montreal a few days before. The escargots & French onion soup were tasty. The restaurant accommodated me easily. I returned for dinner on a Sunday night and the environment was just as enjoyable. A guitarist sang ‘70s era American AM radio songs while we dined on Moules Frite. Their choice of Pouilly Fuisse is one that was unmatched at other restaurants where I’ve dined over the weekend. Iconoclastic but it all comes together & works. Bonus that it seems locals dine there, despite it being in the tourist-heavy Old Montreal.
Thank you, UptownScribe, for this great review! We are glad you enjoyed your experience and we hope to have the pleasure to serve you again soon!
Our absolute favorite restaurant in Montreal!
Thank you so much for your kind words and amazing loyalty!
With it's dark lighting and stone walls, this restaurant makes for a very cozy place to enjoy dinner. The cheese and charcuterie board was outstanding, and the French onion soup was quite good as well. Service was outstanding, and I appreciated always having a full glass of water and being offered more warm, fresh-made bread to go with the charcuterie board. I would definitely return.
We appreciate your kind words, Trafficmancanada!
This is an amazing restaurant, the service and experience is just you’d want from a French bistro.
Lorenzo was our maître d’hôtel, and made our experience that much better.
Highly recommend checking this place out.
Fantastic! They helped me to come around an hour earlier before my reservation. Music was soo good, meals are delicious and service was fast.
We’ll definitely come again. We ordered steak, lamb, salmon and duck egg benedict, parisian breakfast. All of them are yummy. Coffee was good as well. Thank you!
We appreciate your kind words, AysenurA! We look forward to seeing you again!
First time having Poutine!
What a great evening. The food was superb and the service (Francis!!!!!!) was fantastic. The band and the atmosphere. Perfect time. Thank you.
We went here for an anniversary dinner and had a great time! The staff was very friendly and helpful, and food was great. A little pricey for the portions but overall no complaints. They were nice enough to give us a complimentary dessert, so kind(: and a very nice, comfortable atmosphere!
Steak was not seasoned well. 2 of us ordered the steak and fries plate and we weren’t satisfied. The knife provided was dull and couldn’t even cut thru the steak. The presentation was lacking its just a tons of fries and a piece of meat.
Belle ambiance, orchestre jazz très bon, service hors pair
The last time we were Montreal, we discovered Movadie and returned just to eat here again. This place gives you the entire experience! Absolutely delicious food, the ambiance, the service - amazing! This is definitely a must when in Old Montreal.
The food was excellent and very tasteful. The service was also excellent our waitress was very kind and nice. The music was excellent but the sets were short.
We enjoyed our visit here.
Good food, service, ambience.
Will definitely return.
Delicious extraordinary restaurant the food was incredible great service and ambiance ! We had a great evening!
Superbe soirée, service excellent, blues band excellent, très bien accueilli. Nous y retournerons très bientôt!
Wonderful experience! Great food and service. Wine and bourbon list slightly restricted but clearly not their fault as this is what everyone is facing right now. Could not have had a better experience!
Had the duck confit and thought it was excellent. Service and food was very good, enjoyed the live music. Will plan to return next time we are in town!
The place for Lamb. Price are on the expensive side but the food is grate. Parking is not easy to find.... Accross the street, parking at the old port 10 minutes walk and $10. an hour.
Everything is great . Would definitely come back again.
Personnel très courtois
Je recommande à 100%
Everything was excellent!!
This is without a doubt the best restaurant in Montreal. The environment is warm and inviting, the service is very personal and absolutely top notch, and the entertainment is impressive to say the least. My wife and I are here every night we were in Montreal, and we have no desire whatsoever to eat anywhere else. If you want the best service in the city, make sure to ask for Radouan.
Wonderful meal the Creme brûlée was amazing! Live music was great and the service even better. We will definitely return next time we visit Montreal!
Excellent meal, amazing staff and ambiance, awesome live music.
Thank you so much for this great review!
Was a good experience, good customer service just they were short on cooks and food came one hour late, other than that all good

We are glad you enjoyed the service you received but are quite sorry for the wait on your food as it is quite out of the ordinary for us. We would love if you could email us more details about your experience as we strive to improve upon the services we offer. Thank you!
Wow. That's all I can say! This experience was one of our most memorable in Montreal. The food was amazing. We both had lamb and our daughter had the salmon kids meal. We were seated right beside the musician and the music was superb. If I could give more stars, I would! Service was perfect and the owner spoke with us and made our shy daughter comfortable. Thank you! We will be back!!
Thank you so much, JuliaM, for this wonderful review! We are thrilled you had a "wow" experience with us and we can't wait to have you and your family back!
Great food and great music!

We were greeted by Lorenzo who was welcoming, funny and charming. The service continued to be fantastic throughout the night. The food was truly wonderful, we all enjoyed our choices. The music only added to the evening. We will definitely return the next time we are in the city. Highly recommend!!

Fabulous place for a brunch! Next time will remember to ask to be on the side where the live music is. Lorenzo took great care of us. We will be back.
Thank you, DonnaK! We look forward to welcoming you back!
The brunch menu is somewhat limited but interesting nonetheless, especially for meat eaters. The guitarist added a nice ambience. Although we had no idea why, there was a long mix up with one person's order and it took a rather long time for him to be served.
Thank you, 8ate, for taking the time to leave us this review. We are glad you enjoyed the music but we are very sorry one of your guests had to wait a long time to receive their food as this is quite out of the ordinary for us here at Modavie. We would really appreciate if you could email us more details about your experience as we strive to improve upon the services we offer. Thank you!
We did not have to wait to be seated and to be served, the food was great, and Leon Coupal very close to perfection.
We appreciate your kind words & 5 star review, Herve!
Went for brunch with a group and had an amazing time. From the minute we walked in we were treated impeccably. Lorenzo was great and made us all feel like we had been there a million times. The staff were are friendly and very attentive which is hard to find in restaurants these days, so this was a huge plus!
The menu had plenty of selections and the food was great so the overall experience was definitely a 5*, I will return next time I am back in Montreal. Thank you Lorenzo for a great experience!!!
We appreciate your very kind words, Domenic!! We are thrilled you had such a great experience with us and we look forward to having you back next time you are in town!
