“Bday celebration at Modavie”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

Great place!
One of the most pleasant and delicious places from my experience for a very reasonable price. Staff was extremely polite, friendly and welcoming. We even We had a feeling that we eloped to Spain for a few hours.
Will visit again for sure!

“fabulous cozy spot”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Who knew this little place was such a divine treat? We sure didn't when the five of us strolled in. It was a birthday treat. We ordered oodles of yummy tapas and dinners and the service was friendly in three different languages. We were serenaded and given a sparkly treat. You must try this place!

“Zarzuela Nouveau Style”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Last night, we celebrated the birthday of a dear friend. We ordered double tapas and shared a multitude among us. Everything was delicious: shrimp with Porto, camarones plancha, marinated octopus (VERY tender), melt in your mouth chicken, chorizo in beer sauce, potatoes Brava, clams in white wine, tortilla, garlic mushrooms... We tried almost everything on the tapas menu. Timing was excellent as was service. For tapas, great value for the money. Our birthday boy had a nice birthday sweet courtesy of the house. We were the first group initially, then a second group arrived also to celebrate a birthday, and the whole place was alive. On a Sunday evening, we had a guitar player and singer who got us all going. Ole! Definitely would go back again... Hopefully the next time, the credit card machine will work, but we all managed!

“Viva Espana!”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Fabulous spanish restaurant experience, complete with live soccer match on giant screen and raucous spanish supporters. Huge portions, delicious, fresh, the best paella! Creative tapas selection, with the menu also on the wall so you can take your time to decide what you will like to try on your next visit.
Service courteous, personal, fast, stylish brick walls and spanish decor touches. Glad we discovered this gem!
We had the Table d'hôte - $60 for two people, for each a portion of tapas, main course, and dessert. The portions were huge, fresh and were brought up with perfect timing. Will definitely be back.
