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.

Located in a hot corner, good for people watching. Enjoyed a nice lunch and had the pleasure to meet Lorenzo, who provided excellent service and honest food recommendations. My boyfriend and I tried the onion soup and the lamb burger. They were both pretty good. What we enjoyed most was the location and local beers. Lorenzo raised the bar when we asked for help since we forgot our cell phone at the table which he kindly returned and we are very thankful for that. Thank you Lorenzo.

My wife and I were in town for 4 days from BC. Modavie was simply awesome. Service: perfect. Food: amazing. Atmosphere: so relaxing. The small jazz duet made for a perfect evening. Cannot recommend this place any higher!

Great atmosphere with truly authentic food and humble service. A menu that offers a great variety of spectacular and well put together dishes. The hostess Victoria was very welcoming, our waitress was very knowledgeable and Lorenzo is definitely a gentleman who knows how to treat the customers. A beautiful restaurant in a great location of old Montreal that truly makes everyone feel at home.
Ciao a tutti, grazie encora

I chose Modavie based on the recommendations to host overseas guests. The food and service were above expectations. The ambiance was extraordinary with the live Jazz band. Lorenzo and his staff made sure everyone was well attended at all times to provide a memorable evening. The rack of lamb is a must try, certainly delicious and served in a very generous portion.
I certainly recommend making reservations ahead of time and arriving early to get your table.
Modavie is my restaurant of choice for my next trip in Old Montreal.

Great food, great location, great ambience, and good blues (on the night we went). Lorenzo the Maître d' and our server Radouan were excellent, friendly, and had good senses of humor. Most importantly, they put up with our inability to speak French! Modavie was a winning choice for us visiting old Montreal! We had a great table by the window to people watch... Only in Montreal for a few days...we may go back again - next time we will try to sit upstairs with the band!
