With everything going on with COVID 19, we just couldn’t wait to get back to our favourite restaurants. We indulged in some of our favourite cheese boards and ended the night with our top favourite dishes of all time - moules et frites. I’m telling you, they aren’t super salty, they aren’t super heavy.. they are just perfect in all the sense. Not to mention the best shoe lace fries I’ve had in year. We keep coming here and it’s all for that one dish.

We both enjoyed the Caesar salad with bacon lardons. My daughter had the saffron risotto which she really liked. I had the grilled lamb chops which were flavorful, properly cooked but cold. I did like enough to go back if I’m ever in Montreal again.

The food wasn't very good. The salad was over dressed to the point of wilted, the calamari was very salty and over breaded. The lamb burger was really bbq shredded lamb on a bun.... Disappointing all around.

Une très bonne place à découvrir. L'ambiance est vraiment sympa, le service parfait et l'offre varié et d'un très bon rapport qualité/prix.
Cela fait la 2ième fois que nous y allons avec ma femme et c'est sur que ce ne sera pas la dernière.
Juste un petit regret, le cassoulet qu'a pris ma femme était très bon mais manquait simplement de haricots. Juste quelques uns pour décorer c'est peu ! sinon pour le reste rien a redire.
A bientôt donc.

This was recommended by a friend of ours who lives in Montreal. Perfect spot with a great atmosphere and the live jazz music was a bonus. The food was excellent!

Special thanks to Lorenzo (host) and our server Marie-Eve for a fantastic night!

In a word: terrific. The music, the extensive wine list, the food. While they are known for lamb, we found the fish excellent. A memorable, romantic evening. Try to get a window table in the main room.

It was my first time and Modavie did not disappoint! Ii sat near the live music and was surprised it was just the right volume and didn’t over power the room. The food was delicious and had generous portions. Service was fantastic and will return in the near future when I’m in town again. Oh yes, I can’t forget the extensive wine list :)

If you want to listen to some Jazz... then fine. But if you're looking for good food, you'll be out of luck. We were 8 people and we all ordered a variety of items on the menu. These included some of their recommendations as well. Aside from the calamari appetizer which was ok, the rest was mediocre to bad. The lamb burger was tasteless, the oso buco was just bad and the steak was hard and chewy. They do have a great selection of wine. And our server was very nice. The music was pretty good, but don't go there if you have any issues with loud live music. We didn't have an issue at all so we enjoyed it.

I was unsure where to book as I had such a short time in Montreal. I wanted something little upscale but not beyond my means. This place was perfect. The ambiance was spectacular. Live jazz music was amazing and the staff were very attentive even on such a busy night. When we left at 1030pm diners were still rolling into the packed venue.

Magnifique soirée de blues, service fantastique et bonne nourriture comme d'habitude. Un incontournable pour musique et nourriture. La section blues n'est pas un endroit tranquille pour souper d'amoureux, mais pour amateur de blues. Par contre le restaurant offre plusieurs type de salles selon les gouts.
