    The ambiance of the restaurant is very nice and our waiter was excellent and very attentive and professional. The appetizers were very good but the main courses were very disappointing. The squid pasta is something you would expect coming out of a first semester cooking school. The amount of squid was minimal and what was there was tough. The portion size for the risotto was more of an appetizer than a main course selection. The sangria was very bland. Once the band started playing The music was so loud that you couldn’t hear the person across the table. If I go back I will certainly request a table away from the music if I would like to talk with my guests. This was certainly not the Modavie from years past. I think the owner should taste what is coming out of the kitchen. A good benchmark would be the Mechant Boeuf down the street on Saint Paul which was far superior.

    The service was extremely spotty. Started off good, then deteriorated as they got busy. We ordered waffles which arrived burnt like little bricks. It took so long for them to arrive we didn't bother sending them back. My mom didn't even get her second coffee because it took so long for everything. Also ordered potatoes without bacon and they arrived covered in bacon. Replacement potatoes took forever to arrive. Also the musical jazz brunch was recorded music piped in through speakers, not a live jazz band. Huge bill for such poor experience.

    Food potions is tiny and it’s pricey for such tiny portion. After I late one of the lady I’m ready to pay the bill, she said sure and she kept chatting with other customers for 10 minutes and didn’t bother to tell other waiters, and seems to ignore and kept me waiting for the bills for too long.

    Excellent service and food. We were seated next to the bathroom and the kitchen entrance even though there were many other tables, but the great service by Jess and great food made up for that. I guess someone has to sit there and it was us. Nice live music.

    We ate outside. But our table was at the end and adjacent to an unsightly parking lot. The food and wine were delicious. After giving us dessert menus the waiter, who had been totally professional, avoided our table until I finally caught his attention to ask for the check. It was hard to understand. And spoiled a very good dinner.

    We visited the restaurant to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. The service was impeccable. The maître d’hôtel was charming and very friendly. He even offered a little surprise for my kid which was truly delicious. Also, there was live music (jazz) which was very good and the noise level was acceptable. Overall, we had wonderful time.

    I went to this place because of the great reviews. The greatest disappointment was the kitchen service which was totally disorganised. They were keep bringing the wrong dishes, and the main course took 45 minutes. All other tables that came after us were served and finished before we get our main course. I left before I had the chance to taste the main course. The waitress was trying to be helpful but it was not enough.
