Bon restaurant, très bon accueuil. Prix cependant un peu élevé
Food was good with an excellent dessert. But I would have love to have a better service!
Friendly, English or French speaking. Good portions.
We are pleased to know that you enjoyed your Modavie Experience, MelM! We look forward to serving you again soon!
Thé terrace needs a little more decoration to make it cozy. The rest was good 👌
Thank you for your constructive feedback! The outdoor decor is a top priority for summer 2021. We hope to serve you again soon!
Great food and great service!!! The ambience was great and is perfect for a date night
Thank you, Isabelle, for your kind words and 5-star rating! We look forward to serving you again shortly!
Le son de la musique est trop haut. Cela oblige de parler assez fort pour pouvoir se comprendre. Je n' ai rien contre une musique de fond, mais le silence est aussi nécessaire. Du moins, selon moi. Cordialement,

it was a lovely experience which I won't forget since the environment, food, elegance and music combined so well together. the food was so delicious.
Your amazing feedback has gone a long way within our team, Juanma. Comments such as yours are enough of a reward and inspiration to continue the work we all love. We look forward to welcoming you again soon for another elegant evening!
je n'ai pas aimé les boissons. Ma Margarita n'était pas top, mais tout le reste était impeccable

Celebrated a birthday ..great food..staff and environment! Highly recommend
We appreciate your recommendation and all around 5-star rating! We hope to share many more happy occasions with you!
Amazing vibe, the live jazz singer was awesome and the host Lorenzo makes you feel at home. Great restaurant, I will definitely go back because the food was delicious.
Thank you, JayDubz, for this fantastic review! We are thrilled to know that your time here with us was pleasant as we thrive to have our guests live the real Modavie Experience. We hope to see you again very soon!
Fantastic service and food was amazing! A great date night idea.
Thank you, Denny, for your kind and positive words! We are glad you enjoyed your time here with us at Bistro Modavie and hope to have the chance to serve you and your date again very soon!
The service wasn’t very good, didn’t pay much attention or come around. it was a birthday and nothing was done, i didn’t expect it but something would of been nice. there was a very highly intoxicated person at the bar who was very loud and instead of stopping him from drinking the bartender just kept feeding him drinks. In all honesty he ruined the whole thing and which was horrible since the food and wine was amazing!

Please know that your feedback is our highest priority and therefore, the issues surrounding the inattentive service have been addressed with each concerned member of our team.

Musique un peu trop forte pour se comprendre donc nous devions nous rapprocher pour d’entendre.
Merci, Cynthia, d'avoir pris le temps de nous écrire ce commentaire. Bien que nous soyons ravis que vous ayez vécu une expérience 5 étoiles au Modavie, nous sommes navrés que notre musique live fût trop forte pour vous et vos invités. Sachez que notre équipe de gestion est toujours présente pour rectifier tous mécontentements immédiatement. Nous espérons avoir le plaisir de vous servir à nouveau tout de même.
Excellent service, they went above and beyond to make our experience enjoyable. Good live music. The lamb is a must have!
Thank you very much, Veronica, for your lovely feedback! We hope to see you again soon for some more lamb and live music!
Great food and excellent service.
Thank you for taking the time to share your wonderful feedback with us and the others here on OpenTable. We hope to serve you again soon!
Le souper était délicieux.
Le service impeccable.
Merci beaucoup, ElyseO, pour vos beaux commentaires! Nous espérons avoir le plaisir de vous servir à nouveau!
I cant even explain the service, Im not sure if Ive ever received a more friendly restaurant experience from beginning to end. The food is amazing and the staff went above and beyond!
Wow! Thank you very much for your lovely comments, SelenaK! We are so happy to know that the Modavie Family made you and your guests feel welcome and taken care of! We look forward to serving you again soon!
We visited Modavie with some friends on our first trip to Montreal. Everything (from service to food to music) at this lovely restaurant was perfect and made for a wonderful evening. The staff were attentive to everything we needed.
We are so pleased to know that you all enjoyed your Modavie Experience! We look forward to your next visit!
Excellent food, service and music! My favourite restaurant when I come to Montreal.
Thank you, JulieB! Being your favorite Montreal restaurant means the world to our entire team! Until next time!
Our waiter Enzo was outstanding. Management went above and beyond to get us a piece of cake for celebrating our anniversary. Was special. This is our go to restaurant in the old port.
Thank you very much, MarcD! Enzo and the rest of our team hopes to serve you for many more happy occasions! Until next time!
Ce sont les meilleures pâtes que j’ai mangées de ma vie.
Le service était impeccable!!!!
Merci beaucoup pour vos beaux commentaires! Nous sommes enchantés de savoir que vous ayez apprécié les pâtes et le service! À la prochaine!
The staff were very friendly and accomodating..the food as always was superb..it was quiet inside, a sign of the times unfortunatly but defintely worth a visit.
We appreciate your kind words, KevinG! Our team is pleased to know that their efforts made for a 5-star experience. We hope to serve you again soon!
I was overall disappointed. After looking at so many positive reviews, I thought it was going to be incredible. Sadly it wasn’t at all ...
The lamb poutine was a soupe. The fries were floating in so much watery sauce and there was little to no cheese.
The steak frite had no flavour and 0 salt. The fries were good, but a little over cooked and had no salt as well.
I thought the wine was going to be great since it was a wine bar... that also was very disappointing.
Finally we went their to enjoy great jazz music... but instead it was awkward and flat.
I just can’t recommend this place ... sorry.
Thank you, Sabrina, for sharing your feedback with us and the others here on OpenTable. We are very disappointed to know that your experience with us did not meet your expectations. Please know that your comments are our highest priority and we have therefore taken immediate action to rectify the points you mentioned. We hope you will be so kind as to give us another chance and try our new menu and wine list!
It was the best experience my wife and I have had in Montreal. The food tastes amazing, ingredients are fresh and of high quality and the service is pretty good. Everything is top-notch
Your kind words are greatly appreciated, Amin! We are so pleased to hear that your Modavie Experience was top-notch. We look forward to serving you both again soon!
Celebrating my anniversary they sent my husband and I some Port wine on the house which I thought was very sweet!
Thank you, Joanne, for taking the time to share your lovely feedback with us and the others here on OpenTable. We are always happy to help celebrate these special milestones with our cherished guests. We look forward to your next visit!
Really nice place, everyone was very nice, very cool to have someone singing in live we’ll comeback for sure ! Highly recommand!
Your kind words and recommendation are very much appreciated, CoralieD! We can't wait to serve you again soon!
Everything was perfect. I’ll come back. The owner was very kind
We appreciate the perfect rating and we are very pleased to know that it was for a perfect evening! We look forward to your next visit!
Excellent ambiance, outstanding food and service. Would definitely recommend it!
Thank you, Vivienne, for recommending Bistro Modavie! We are happy to know that our food and service were outstanding! See you again soon!
The live music is really a must, the food is excellent and delicious.
Thank you, Juancarlos! We are so glad to hear that our food was delicious and that you had enjoyed the live entertainment. We look forward to serving you again soon!
Belle ambiance, bouffe excellente et prix raisonnable .... pourquoi aller manger dans les grandes chaines quand vous avez une telle ambiance ? Merci Laurenzo !
Merci beaucoup, Supercorner! Nous sommes ravis que vous ayez apprécié votre expérience chez nous! Au plaisir de vous servir de nouveau!
The food was delicious and the service was great. However, the portions were really small for the price and there was no live music as promised on the website, so I was a bit disappointed because we went especially for that.
Thank you, ChantalC, for taking the time to share your feedback with us and the others here on OpenTable. While we are pleased to know that our food and service were to your liking, your comments regarding our live music are quite concerning. Please know that our live music is available without fail, every night from 7pm until 10pm (with 3 short breaks) and during our weekend brunches from noon until 3pm. We hope to serve you again soon, and this time for a flawless experience.
C’est le brunch jazzé qui m’a interpellé, plus le fait que je me rappelais y avoir mangé une fameuse salade César il y a plusieurs années. En fait, il n’y avait pas de jazz (déception), mais quand même un guitariste de talent qui a interprété chansons françaises et classiques du blues, très bien. Et...ma salade niçoise, si difficile à trouver dans sa version authentique avec pommes de terre grelots, haricots verts croquants, anchois, était parfaite. J’y retournerai.
Merci beaucoup pour vos commentaires encourageants et constructifs! Afin de promouvoir un environnement sécuritaire en suivant les consignes de distanciation sociale, notre musique live est présentement limitée à un chansonnier à la fois. Nous espérons vous servir à nouveau!
Great friendly service.
Thank you for your feedback! We hope to serve you again soon!
We had an amazing time with the live music and the food was incredible. The service was the best of all, our server Fabrice was detailed oriented and very nice. They really made our anniversary special and we are so happy we chose it for our anniversary.
We appreciate your lovely feedback and 5-star rating! Fabrice and our entire team are thrilled to know that we've succeeded in making this happy occasion one to remember! Until next time!
Very kind people, nice music and the food is delicious !
We appreciate your wonderful feedback, JulienD! Until next time!
Excellent service avec Lorenzo et toute son équipe.
De loin mon restaurant préféré de Montréal!!
Merci beaucoup, JeanneDG, vos merveilleux commentaires inspirent notre équipe de nouveau! Nous espérons vous servir prochainement!
Je suis allée a ce restaurant a plusieurs reprises et le service et la qualité de la nourriture est toujours excellente
Merci énormément, Line, pour votre beau commentaire! Il nous fait chaud au cœur de savoir que nos invités apprécient leur expérience au Bistro Modavie. Nous avons bien hâte de vous servir de nouveau!
nous allons y retourner c'est sur ! bonne musique live, proprietaire et serveurs bien agreables.
Nous sommes ravis de savoir que votre expérience avec nous a été agréable, Julie! À très bientôt!
Food was very good & entertainment was as well. Singer had a nice voice and wasn’t too loud. Our waiter seemed preoccupied and was constantly tugging on his mask which was exposing his nose ( not proper protocol during Covid 19)
Thank you for taking the time to leave us this great comment, Connie! As much as we are thrilled that your evening with us was pleasant over all, we are very concerned by the servive you received as we do take the Covid 19 Protocole extremely seriously. We would appreciate if you could let us know more about you experience here with us through the email the will be provided to you in a private message. We hope to serve you again very soon!
Lovely wait staff! The live music was great and the lavender mimosa is my new favourite drink by far!
Thank you, Liam, for the 5 star review! We are overjoyed that you enjoyed your time at Modavie this much. The wait team will be thrilled to know about your positive comment! We hope to have the chance to serve you again very soon!
