Description: Seven nights a week, local bands take the stage at Montreal's hottest Jazz bar and bistro. Modavie's spirited setting encompasses two intimate floors and sets the scene for a night of great tunes, top dining and generous pastis toasting. The bistro's far-reaching wine menu hits just the right notes and helps round off succulent lamb, fish, beef and inspired pasta dishes.

Wonderful atmosphere, good French food and some very smooth jazz and Lorenzo! We spent our first night here and wanted to come back on the other two nights, but decided to try some of the other wonderful places in the old town. This is a very atmospheric place with live music and wonderful food. We were greeted by Lorenza (I... More

When we go to a restaurant, we want the full service. We expect great food, great service and a great atmosphere. This restaurant provided all of that! The band was amazing and the manager, Lorenzo, made sure everything was always going well. It doesn't feel like you are just another customer but rather like you are a guest.

My girlfriend and I spent the day in Montreal and had a few places picked as options for dinner. Modavie was on our list as they hosted live music after 7pm. We made no reservation, simple walked in and asked to get a table. Lorenzo was excellent. Even though there were many reservations scheduled for the evening he gave us... More

Started with a glass of wine, my daughter & I each enjoyed the fresh beet and feta salad along with the rainbow trout and risotto. To finish off, we then shared the Creme brûlée & Apple pie with a cappuccino. Fantastic! The best part was the added ambiance of a singer accompanied by his guitar. Great place to dine.

My husband and I were in Montreal for one night and just happened upon this restaurant. We couldn't have chosen a better place! We were greeted by Lorenzo who, along with our wonderful server, Rachel, made sure we enjoyed every minute from beginning to end. The food was very good... but the Tiamisu was the best we have had since... More

Returning to Montreal for New Year's, my son and I once again had dinner at Modavie. The atmosphere is almost casual, but the food is first class. Once again we had a wonderfully informed and accommodating waiter (who spoke English well, although not his first language) and a reasonably priced dinner. My son had the three course (price fixed) dinner,... More
