Lorenzo is a great host! Fun friendly and hospitable!
Waiter accidentally gave our order to someone else. Took a while for my husband's dinner. Meat was under cooked. Appetizers and entrees very bland, not flavorful.
Prices were on the higher level. Staff was nice though.
My friend and I were there for her birthday celebration. And we received a piece
Thank you for taking the time to review Bistro Modavie. We hope to serve you again soon!
J'ai amené ma copine dîner au Modavie pour son anniversaire et je n'aurais pas pu mieux tomber. La musique live était bien balancée et de bon goût, le service était impeccable et surtout l'ambiance était chaleureuse. Le chef de service Lorenzo se promène dans la salle à manger et s'assure que chacun de ses "invités" soit traité avec le plus grand soin. Ma copine, qui est chanteuse, à même pu se joindre au band le temps d'une chanson. Je recommande sans hésitation. Merci pour ce bon temps. Jasmin et Marie-France
Merci énormément, Jasmin et Marie-France, pour vos merveilleux commentaires! Nous sommes ravis que vous ayez apprécié votre soirée chez nous. À la prochaine!
Amazing experience there. They take great care of the hygiene measures, the service is very good and the food was my favorite. There was a singer there who made a difference. Thank you for your service.

Modavie is definitely one of my favorite restaurant.
I think it's casual but classy. I just love it.
Always love the food, I normally order fish.. But this time I picked the Steak&Fries.. I thought the plate would at least contain a couple veggies... Only meat and fried.. Which was missing your usual little touch. BUT still it was fine and lovely. Already made 2 more reservations for summer time :)
We appreciate your lovely comments and constructive feedback, Deylire! We can't wait to serve you again this summer!
Wonderful experience first time going with my man ...Sunday brunch romantic......jazz music ...food ...mimosa and big shout to Lorenzo.
We are thrilled to know that you've enjoyed your Modavie Experience!
Good service. Expensive restaurant. The food is ordinary.
We appreciate your feedback, Philippe!
Very disappointing. The food was wait to below average. I’m not sure why the hype about this please it may be related to uniquely the atmosphere. Peel pub or Cheers type place nothing more with very poor food. Soggy calamari chewy steaks and tasteless salmon. Again very disappointed with food

Exquisite service and excellent food 👏🏾
We appreciate your 5 star rating and kind words! Come back soon!
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.
Your lovely feedback has further inspired our team to go above and beyond for our community. Soon your favorite cheese and charcuterie board will be available in picnic form to be enjoyed safely by the waterfront, or wherever you please! See you again soon
The service was great and food was incredible. I would recommend this restaurant.
We are happy to know that you enjoyed both our food and service. Come back anytime!

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.
Great food, friendly service and amazing live music.
A pleasant evening listening to live music. The food was excellent.
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.
Great, attentive staff!
The maître de is very concerned about your service and enjoyment. We went to listen to Jazz with our diner. I had lamb chops, excellent.
Beautiful and delicious.
I enjoyed a wonderful meal with live entertainment. I recommend the lamb chop. It was prepared well and presented nicely. Servers were pleasant and observant. Fun environment, with live music and quality gourmet food.
Tout était parfait: la nourriture, le service, l’ambiance. Nous y retournerons assurément!
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!
definitely great jazz to accompany great food with awesome service
It was a really good experience,the restaurant is very quiet and the food taste amazing!the service was very nice as well
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.
Bonne musique live jazz durant le souper, bonne ambiance
Food was amazing! Great staff and music was really nice,They sing you happy birthday too from a live jazz band! Will definitely return without any hesitation
Steak was the best!
Ambiance of Old Montreal unmatched!
Could not be a better experince
1 ere visite, et que de bons mots. Acceuil, service, repas, bonne musique ambiante, à refaire.
Great location near the water! Food was on point and was served very fast. Our server was great, attentive and provided lovely suggestions. We would definitely recommend!

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 :)
