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.

“Modavie was an excellent choice for our special occaision dinner!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

We were greeted warmly, and presented with a table quickly, but also moved to a much better table which was immediately set up just for us.
The waiter "Rad" was wonderful - attentive, responsive, and recommended excellent choices. The Maitre'D Mr Lorenzo was absolutely the best we have experienced in a long time. He was over and above all we expected. He made us laugh, we felt comfortable, and we felt very special for attending dinner at Modavie.
We strongly recommend your visit to Modavie. We will surely be back to visit as soon as possible!

“A Must While In Montreal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

Wonderful atmosphere! We were greeted by Lorenzo at the door -- he was funny, friendly and accommodating. We went on a Sunday night for a few drinks and live music (mellow jazz guitar) but after seeing the menu we had to try something. We ended up ordering a pastry with goat cheese and applesauce that came with a small sampling of salad. The pastry was really nice, but the salad was unreal -- it had great house dressing and the lettuce was like edible Egyptian silk. Unfortunately we had eaten before attending -- it's a mistake we won't make in the future. The meals all looked delicious and high end. We plan on coming back the next time we're in Montreal, and most definitely will order the lamb. The staff was also friendly and very helpful. You won't regret checking this place out.

“Excellente”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

Just came from Modavie with my two girls ages 11 and 13, along with my wife. The meal was fabulous! Lorenzo, the owner, sat us and recommended the spaghetti bolognese to my youngest, which she took him up on., while the rest of us ordered steak frites and steak w peppercorn......all was awesome!

Our first time in Montreal and we consulted Trip Advisor as to where we should eat, and also enjoy your live entertainment! Whadaya know.....

Totally recommend for a great meal, service and entertainment!
