The waiter did an amazing amazing job. The ambiance and the food was amazing. Don’t get me started on the rosé. I’m definitely going again. Loved it.
Great food, fantastic ambience, great service. Definitely recommend!
Great service and authentic French food. French onion soup is a must!! The live music was cancelled because of you-know-what, but it’s a romantic atmosphere nonetheless. Highly recommend!!
Great food, excellent service! Travelled all the way from Toronto for the beef tartare 🥰
Unfortunately there were no live music. We selected Modavie particularly for the music, so no music was quite disappointing. The food was great, though a bit heavy. Otherwise, nice place and I'd recommend.
Duck confit with pan seared foie gras was one of the best meals I’ve had! Service was also great. Unfortunately there was not live jazz, but I imagine the experience would have been even that much better with it! Very pleased and highly recommend!
Excellent French restaurant in old Montreal. My family of five had dinner at Modavie. We loved it. Good was outstanding. Our server Yan is the best. He was very patient with the kids. Yan explained to us the menu. He had big smile all evening. We are from Washington DC area. We will be back to Modavie when we are in Montreal.
Excellent! It’s our third time in a week coming here for the 2021 Holiday period. I grew up on Montreal and I know that there are several great restaurants. We got great food, service and ambiance here…every time! Consistency matters. I would highly recommend. The French onion soup, bone marrow and sweet breads are delicious and so is the Crème Brûlée. Great quality for the price. Enjoy! //Ben
Delightful- what a gem of a restaurant, worthy of a special trip!
Greeted by the owner as we checked in! Wonderful ambiance, loved the old Parisian music playing in the background. Service was knowledgeable, professional and attentive without getting in the way. Menu was well designed. We ordered the French onion soup and sweetbreads as starters that were amazing followed by the filet au poivre and the duck confit which were outstanding- solid kitchen staff to back up the front of house. Nice wine list and dessert menu. We’ll definitely go back and highly recommend
C’était juste impeccable pour nous.
Merci de tout coeur!
It was a lovely evening. The host and waiters were exceptional. The food was very nice as well!!!
Thank you, LinaK!
Great, hearty portions served warm and fresh. Excellent service.
Great food, reasonably priced with very professional staff
Thank you so much, PatrickG!
On a cold Christmas afternoon were given a very warm welcome. Even with the stresses of the Covid restrictions the service was attentive and pleasant. We enjoyed a spectacular cheese plate, the pork tenderloin special and hands down the best profiteroles we have ever had (including Paris).
I could see this being a comfortable place for regular visits.
Thank you for this amazing review! We are thrilled you enjoyed your experience so much and we hope you'll come visit us again soon!
Une ambiance feutrée et jazzy parfaite pour un brunch de Noël. Un service parfait! Présent mais discret.
J'adore cet endroit!
Merci de tout coeur!
Very nice place, outstanding service and quality of food is great. Would def be back.
Thank you a thousand times, SashaG!
Wonderful food and excellent service
We appreciate your kind words, Tamara!
Amazing Christmas brunch! Food and service were impeccable. Really enjoyed the wine as well. A winner in old Montreal.
We appreciate this very kind review!
Considering that Mr Legault spoiled Christmas suddenly, the staff of Modavie did an outstanding job to make this dinner one of the best experience we had recently.
Thank you, CharlyC, for this very sweet review! We are thrilled you had a good experience with us and we hope you'll come visit us again soon!

Thank you for this 4 star review!
Bon moment en famille autour d'un savoureux repas.
Merci de tout coeur, ClaudieR! Nous espérons avoir le plaisir de vous servir vous et votre famille à nouveau bientôt!
Overhyped and do not follow proper covid cleaning protocols (menu not cleaned and put on your personal plates and utensils when seated). Food was meh, not worth the $$$ and wait.
We appreciate your feedback! Since this new variant has struck, we will absolutely be tightening our protocols at Modavie. Please feel free to send more information regarding your recent experience at the email address available on our website, as we strive to improve with each and every day!
Wonderful atmosphere, superb service and great food!
Thank you so much, ZahraN! We hope to have the pleasure of serving you again soon!
This restaurant pleased multiple generations (who can be hard to satisfy all at once). The variety of starters was decadent and excellent. Good traditional and more inventive wine list. The service was excellent, including a server who was very sweet to the young child in our party. Nice ambiance and view of Vieux Montreal & river.
My only minor critique is that the cocktail list was a bit inchoate and leaned on the sweeter side.
Thank you for this wonderful review, AfromBaltimore!
Excellent customer service--starting with the host/hostess and the service staff.
Thank you, NinaB!
Very nice service, enjoyed the food and the view from upper floor!
Thank you so much, kathyl!
Quick and good service of good meals
Thank you so much for this great review!
Everything was good but the creme brulee let me down…it looked like a flan or pudding never a creme brûlée
Thank you, fabianaf, for this 4 star review! We hope you will give us a second chance to make up for that disappointing dessert!
Great restaurant , I would come back again .
Thank you so much, DanielaC! We look forward to welcoming you back!
An absolutely delightful experience from the moment we enters the restaurant. Lorenzo is an amazing host leaving no detail unattended. The drinks and food were spectacular and the ambiance was incredible. A “must go” when in old
Thank you so much for this absolutely amazing review!
Vey good experience with my girlfriend , recommend for date
Thank you, KosarA! We are thrilled you and your girlfriend had a good experience with us!
Excellent food and lovely upstairs dining with local jazz music! Perfect Montréal spot!
Good for date
Thank you for this 5 star review!
Le service était excellent et la nourriture de même. La musique live etait très agréable
Aucune vue et son très faible dû band.
Banquette usée et mal fixée.
Belle ambience et bon service.
Bonne chance avec la pandémie .
Merci, AArTechnologies, d'avoir pris le temps de nous laisser cet avis. Nous aimerions beaucoup en savoir plus sur votre expérience de 2 étoiles puisque nous cherchons à améliorer la qualité des services que nous offrons. Vous pouvez nous écrire par courriel, merci!
Christian our server was amazing!
Thank you so much for this great review!
Overall excellent experience. Enjoyed the live Sunday Brunch music.
Thank you so much for this amazing review!
Excellent service, waiters spoke English and French fluently and were extremely courteous and professional. The live music was pleasant, if it a little muted in volume compared to the ambiant noise of other diners conversing. Had the Galvaudé Poutine, the tartare and Croque Monsieur, top quality ingredients and preparation. Would definitely return
Thank you for this wonderful review, Qbodsyt!
