    Food was delicious and tasty. Great ambiance with live band during our brunch with the family. A place that I will recommend to friends and relatives. Our family experienced a friendly service from Solene. Will be returning to Modavie in the near future.

    Reservations made via Hotel booking when at restaurant they were confused about special requests. However, we were seated by a window in private corner. Waiter was extremely accommodating and hospitable. When informed it was a special occasion (birthday) the waiter made special arrangements for a spectacular dessert. The food was exceptional and atmospherewas upbeat. There was live music in the other that sounded fun. Nicely done.

    The service is impeccable. Any meat we ordered was delicious. Unfortunately, the sides were boring, cold, and greasy. The musicians were fantastic. Everyone was exceptionally friendly. We would return and probably do a salad and protein.

    Definitely a bit of a tourist trap. The food was just OK. The drinks were not very good. I ordered a martini very, very dry, and it tasted like vermouth. I asked her server about it and she said the drink was 3 ounces comprised of vodka and dry vermouth. I asked her how much dry vermouth and she said a half ounce. That is not very dry. As I asked for it. I also asked for my drink with olives, and I was served three olives that had pits in them. Very limited menu menu I ordered mussels and frittes for dinner. I’ve had this dish in Paris, France, and it was excellent. Here, though, I’m not sure what they put in the sauce. It appeared to be somewhat creamy. And basically had no flavor. I also asked for the french fries to be extremely well done, almost burnt. I got french fries that were just barely cooked. My wife ordered salmon, which was also just OK, not great.. The ambience and the vibe with the music was superb. That made it very enjoyable. If there was no music, we would never go back there again.

    Great, lively spot in the center of Vieux Montreal. We had an early dinner before attending the nearby amazing AURA immersive experience at Basilique Notre-Dame. Friendly, attentive service. Our server Jessica was prompt, professional and knowledgeable, and she gave good recommendations. We loved the fried octopus with saffron aioli. The rainbow trout was fabulous. And the profiterole was perfect! Better than in Paris. Casual vibe with nicely presented, high quality food in generous portions. The live music was a fun bonus. Thank you!
    ModavieResponded 3 days ago
    Thank you for the great review of our restaurant! We work really hard to serve the best food in a great environment, and I am glad to see those efforts paid off on your last visit. I will make sure Jessica gets the recognition she deserves. We hope to have the pleasure of serving you again soon!
