Great food and service. Highly recommend this place.
What I liked: great band, nice atmosphere, friendly staff, delicious food.
What I didn’t like: very small portions. The main dishes look like appetizers. I left the reataurant on a half empty stomach. Sure you could order more food, but the value is simply not there. I would go there on special occasions, but this won’t become my weekend hangout spot.
Can’t they put more than 4 bite sized lamb chops on a pricey plate?
Food was not worth it. Service was great. I won’t go back
Ambiance, food, live music were all great. Josianne was our server and she was fantastic.
Probably the best service I have had in a while at any restaurant. It was so good, my wife
and I went back again the next night.

Beautiful restaurant. Onion soup was great. Foie Gras au torchon was disappointing and so was the shrimp cocktail and charcuterie board which is just meats with no cheese. The live music was great and so was the ambiance.
It was a wonderful dining experience, the food, service etc.
I had family from out of town and suggested we dine at Modavie. They had a great time. The live music was enjoyed by all. The food was excellent. The portions were good. Lorenzo was excellent host. I would definitely go back.
Amazing experience. Greeted by the host (he may have been the owner) who was as warm as could be on a snowy March evening. We were seated at a marvelous table with direct sight of the singer/guitarist. The music choice he had was excellent. Our waitress was warm and pleasant and answered all of our questions. The appetizers were amazing! The mains were even more amazing! And the host kept checking in to see if we were having a good time. Would recommend to everyone we know when they are in Montreal.
We were visiting Montreal and had a family dinner at this place in Old Montreal. This was exactly what we were looking for. French style, cozy restaurant with good local food (stake&fries, ratatouille, etc), good wines, good value and very friendly service. We were seated right next to the fire place and there was also live music (not too loud though). It was a memorable evening. Everybody loved it. Special thanks to Luigi, the super nice waiter.
We had a terrific time at Modavie during our recent stay in Old Montreal. Our host Lorenzo Baldassarre made sure our evening was memorable! The rack of lamb was amazing, the suggestions for wine pairings were fantastic, and the live music added the perfect ambiance!
As always, excellent experience.
Went out for appetizers on our anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed the food. First time to Montreal. Will be back on the summer!
Love this place
Great service and atmosphere. Just wasn't impressed with the striploin steak.
Great experience. Our server was outstanding - friendly, personable, informative.
Belle soirée, repas généreux en table d’hôte sauf le dessert, un sorbet aux pommes qui ne convient pas à une table d’hôte de ce prix. Excellent service et ambiance très agréable.
Modavie was a great location for visitors (like us) who wanted to taste authentic French food. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The live music aspect was a great addition to the ambiance. Would highly recommend for a small group of friends or for date night.
The atmosphere is intimate, attractive and sophisticated. It is a tad too dark (anyone over 40 had to use their phone flashlight to read the menu. The service was excellent. The food was very good.
Most attentive staff I’ve seen in a while - service was top notch. Atmosphere was amazing with a romantic/dimly lit vibe and a different jazz band plays each night of the week - they’re very talented and it’s not so loud you can’t hear the person next to you (unless you sit front row). There were a few building pillars that could block your view but luckily you can request your seating area - a nice touch. Food: my duck and wild mushroom risotto was cooked well and very tasty (5/5) but my family’s steak and fries were 4/5 largely due to the fries (likely shoestring from frozen). Expect to spend min $60 per person with app, main, and drink. Overall quality was fantastic and we’ll definitely go again.
We had a nice evening with friends.
Good live music at perfect volume creating a good ambiance.
Service professionnel et chaleureux. Ambiance dépaysante avec la musique française.
A nice way to end an evening with tasty food and good music. The lamb burger was excellent!
Great fun. The lamb poutine, the waitress, the music all made for a special evening
From the friendly service, to the delicious food, everything was great. I had the chicken, and I cannot remember the last time I ate chicken cooked so perfectly! We sat right next to the live blues singer, but even at that distance the music was not overpowering, and the performance was fabulous. Would definitely go back.
This restaurant was simply outstanding! Everything was right from the hostess to incredible food. I brought my family here for a special night out in Montreal and must say we were all very impressed. Lorenzo made it extra special by stopping by and asking how things were going and engaging in a wonderful conversation. Highly recommend!
My boyfriend and I were visiting Montreal from New York for our one year anniversary and celebrated at Modavie. We had a beautiful, delicious dinner. Our waitress gave us a perfect wine pairing. The music was great and it was an all-around perfect experience!
We were here for the second time and we weren’t disappointed. Wonderful atmosphere with excellent live music. We really enjoyed the blues they were playing. The lamb chops were delicious as well as the duck confit with risotto. This is our go-to restaurant for a special meal out in Old Montreal.
Belle ambiance, bon groupe, bon service. Je recommande et je n'ai aucun point négatif!
Expect to have better wine brands(not expensive) like Kim Crawford.
We were on a weekend getaway and we picked this place based on the reviews and the fact that there was live music. We were not disappointed. Food was delicious, our server was exceptional and attended to us perfectly. The music was a jazzy-blues bland that was very talented. Our server capped off our visit with a complimentary glass of 10 year old Portuguese port which was a nice finishing touch.
Ambience and live music is the reason to go
Visit to old town Feb 20th Booked on line.

Great ambience, server was SO nice and helpful (with wine and food recommendations). Lamb chops were excellent! Loved the entertainment too. Place just has a friendly vibe.
Salmon tartare was not fresh at all. Disappointed
Excellent food, great service. We enjoyed the music, and it was not at all too loud despite being seated fairly close to the performer.
Wonderful meal, great service, live music but not overpowering, and nice atmosphere.
Our waiter was hilarious and really made us laugh the entire time we were there. The food was amazing!! Would totally go back again.
Plats copieux, délicieux vin et cocktails, ambiance décontractée avec prestation musicale sur scène. Magnifique soirée en amoureux ou entre amis!
All the food was great but the calamari & sauces was amazing!!
