French bistro in a jazzy atmosphere

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.

La nourriture ne vaut pas le coup. Le risotto était fade et la viande peu assaisonnée. Le foie gras servi sur une toast froide... j’ai déjà vu mieux.

Nous avions pris le menu happening gourmand. Le gravlax de saumon était très mal aprèter, sec avec le croute de sel, n'a pas mariné au complet nous avons chercher les agrumes aussi. (celui de mon père est mille fois exquis), désagréable d'avoir dû payer le prix pour ca. Le sanglier, sec et avec vraiment beaucoup de gras! Pourtant un osso bucco c'est facile à faire . Une chance que le serveur était excellent et se démarque beaucoup dans son travail car sinon ça serait zéro sur le tout. Il est venu sauver la soirée. Sur ce, nous ne recommanderon pas le modavie à personne. Très décevant !

Propriétaire vraiment gentil et aimable! Serveur très présent et prends soin de bien nous expliquer! J'ai très hâte d'y retourner pour essayer le reste du menu. Belle ambiance et le rapport qualité/prix vaut la peine.

Very good food and alcohol menu; and excellent, but very loud, music. Not the place for an intimate conversation, but an excellent venue for a fun evening!

Nous avons testé ce restaurant durant happening gourmand et ce fut une très belle découverte. La nourriture est de très bonne qualités. Le niveau sonore du restaurant est vraiment bruyant heureusement que les musiciens font des pauses même si la musique est vraiment très agréable !

I invited my partner for our anniversary last Thursday. It was generally a pleasant experience. Our waiter was outstanding and the food was great. The only downside is that we felt very disconnected from the live band and the crowd around us was noisy so we couldn't enjoy the music at all which was a shame for us. We asked to change our table and we weren't allowed though there were many available tables on the side where the band was playing.

This was our first time and not the last, very nice restaurant, the waiter was always there to filled out our glaces, the food was really good and well plated, was a bit cold with the opening and closing door, next time I’ll ask to be place where the music is at. Thank you

Excellent service et quelle bonne qualité de tous les plats que nous avons dégusté et surtout terminé en entier! Je trouve déplorable que le 3/4 des clients ne terminent pas leurs assiettes! Quel gaspillage de si bonne nourriture!

Honestly - we are regular customers of Modavie but the brunch yesterday was honestly awful. The baked eggs was more like sickly cheesy soup and the service was pretty ordinary and a little lazy. We felt ill until this morning - and won't be returning. We like the Mimosas and the music was fab but other than that it was a no thanks from us.

We were there for a birthday, 7 persons with a reservation. The service was amazing, super good. The live music was also very good and the restaurant in and of itself has the right ambience and look/feel. The food was so/so, but everything else was so good that we didn’t really care. Great job by the staff.

c'est dommage toutefois que nous fussions assis à côté de la porte. Nous n'entendions ni la musique et nous avions froid du va et viens des consommateurs qui entraient et sortaient du restaurant.

Nous venons souper au Modavie à tous les ans pour la fête de ma mère et de ma belle-mère et nous ne sommes jamais déçu. Le serveur Enzo était parfait et les musiciens du côté Blues étaient excellent.

Ce n'est pas une critique négative en soi, l'expérience a été agréable mais mon copain et moi nous attendions à une qualité de nourriture plus élevée. Il n'y a pas eu de "wow" en mangeant pour venir soutenir l'expérience de notre sortie dans ce resto. Nous ne connaissions pas ce restaurant et avions possiblement des attentes trop élevées par rapport au type de restaurant qu'est Modavie.

Food was very good. Service was attentive and friendly though main courses were very slow to arrive and the restaurant was less than half full. Jazz duo was OK but far from outstanding - very little synergy between the 2 musicians.

Le Happening Gourmand is supposed to be very good restaurants at affordable prices. I don't understand if the d'A dote is supposed to be $29..00 then find something on your menu that would encourage us to
add another $18.00 to the $29.00, don't give me a song and dance about how this meal is so
much more normally. Also how can Onion Soup have another atroctious price tacked on it.
