We enjoyed our recent meal at Modavie and we sat on the main floor in the room with the band. Someone needs to tell them that the speakers are distorting in the rear of the room. The lamb chops were thin and a bit disappointing....More

Description
Seven nights a week, local bands take the stage at Montreal's hottest Jazz bar and bistro. Modavie's spirited setting 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.
