My beautiful wife and I spent a few days in vieux Montreal to celebrate our wedding anniversary. For supper, we went to Modavie because we heard good reviews for the place. We were shown to our table close to the live jazz, but a table by the window opened up shortly after we ordered. I asked the maitre d'hotel if... More

I was there to celebrate my anniversary with my husband. The live jazz music was wonderful. The place was packed. I feel that there were too many tables crowded together and that the waitresses were having a hard time keeping up. Therefor, the serviced was compromised. My husband had the scallops and the lamb(their specialty) and loved it. I had... More

My husband and I spent 4 nights recently visiting Montreal for our anniversary. We spent 2 of the 4 nights at Modavie located on a cobblestone street in old Monreal. We enjoyed everything about this lovely little old world bistro. From being warmly greeted and welcomed by the owner, Lorenzo, to the cozy atmosphere, the decor -- mix of beautiful... More

Our first lunch in Montréal was a real success! We chose Moldavie for its rating and were not disappointed. The vegetable soup was out of this world, the beetroot salad generous, the steak very good. We'll come back one evening to enjoy the live jazz music!

We walked into Modavie on a crowded holiday night and the owner made us feel trés welcome. He, Lorenzo, said, "We are known for our lamb and our Spaghetti Bolognese." And for good reason. The Lamb Burger and Spaghetti are fantastic. Salad, warm bread and onion soup are superb. Service is excellent. No wonder there is such a crowd. Our... More

We went out to dinner to celebrate our friends birthday. Lorenzo, the host, was friendly and very attentive. Our server was great. We were all pleased with our meals. The restaurant has live music which was very good, however; it does make for a bit of difficulty in carrying on conversations. We would definitely eat here again!

We went to listen to the live music before heading to dinner. The music starts at 7 pm. We didn't have a reservation but they could place us upstairs (the music is downstairs) or at the bar so we chose to sit at the bar. The young lady bar tending was wonderful and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves and... More

We hadn't researched our dining venue on this occasion so wandered around the Old Port looking at options. We liked the look of Modavie. Only now have I found that it is highly rated by TA. We were delighted. We were given a table right by the Jazz duo but that was fine because they took a long break during... More

Was just in Montreal on business, and came across this restaurant in Old Montreal. I had no reservation - but was seated immediately - upstairs where great music was playing! It was a fun, happening place with good food and atmosphere
