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.

we did not catch any live music with our 6 pm reservations on the ground floor, although we were there past the music start at 7. Food was pretty good. I have to say though, with tons of little restaurants on rue St Paul O, I'm not sure why Modavie really stands out. I found it through tripadvisor, and I think a lot of other people did too because the 3 tables next to us were also full of tourists. Although the food and experience were fine, I would in hindsight preferred to have gone to a more 'local' place.

Food good, service excellent, and prices, for a fairly expensive city, reasonable. The jazz trio playing created a pleasing atmosphere.

Upon arrival we were informed directly by the maitre de that they did not honour their resevations. He did make sure we got a drink in short order. We were eventually seated one hour late. Drinks were ok. Food was barely acceptable. Entertainment was really good and made the evening ok. After thisexperience I am going to stop listening to concierges and friends and pick my own restaurants in Montreal.

It isn't often that you get a real sense that your server cares. Not just about about the table, but about our whole experience. You made our night Radouan; thank you.

Good food, good wine, terrific location and beautiful music make for a very romantic evening. We were visiting Montreal for my birthday and saw so many good reviews here of Modavie that we decided to go- so glad we did. We must mention we were greeted by Lorenzo and had exceptional service by Phanna- thank you both. I had the lamb stew dish layered with puff pastry and it was delicious.The Creme Brulee was one of the best I ever had. Thanks again, can't wait to return!
