    The scallop appetizer was wonderful as was the linguini with seafood. The snapper, which was the fish of the day, was beautifully prepared and was equally good. But the best part of the evening was the jazz band (more like a blues band last night). We could have stayed and listened for another hour, but seating is limited to two hours. If you like good food and great music, I highly recommend Modavie.

    Great food and service! If going on a hot summer evening be warned that the upstairs is a bit stuffy. Otherwise excellent choice of restaurants.

    Friend recommended this restaurant and it was fantastic. Food and live jazz music for after work dinner was great. We were able to enjoy the music and still talk throughout the evening. Hostess was great even running 15 mins.

    Nous avons un excellent service de la part de Patrice, nous avons bien mangé mais c’est assez onéreux pour ce que c’est en réalité.

    The jazz group was great. The server was great. The ambiance was great. We were given free aperitif’s! The lamb and steak tartare was ok, but nothing to write home about. Many expected french entrees, but with a rather tired execution. Great tourist experience, but one would expect a higher culinary bar given the prices, and the french locale. Worth going to overall, but definitely not the best french food in Montréal.

    Excellent French food and impeccable service! Plan to arrive early because of construction in the street in front of the restaurant.

    We had a wonderful time and meal. Even had the joyful conversation with Lorenzo the owner. The waitress was wonderful and so helpful with our choices. I am so sorry that we can't remember her name. The lamb chops are definitely their specialty, it was cook to perfection and was very enjoyable. Definitely a do over, it was our first time there.

    Menu dispendieux et portions petites pour une salle a diner au 2e étage en décrépitude. Tres decevant quand les reviews sur Google donnent 4.4 etoiles. Tartare en entrée 19$ est ridiculement minime, a peine une cuillère a soupe. Le luinguine aux fruits de mer de 39$ est minimes et de goût ordinaire, rien de special.,, les cocktail et vin sont cher quand nous servis dans un decor tres vieux et usé. Une facture de 680$ pour 4 personnes.

    From our lovely host, Lorenzo, to our server (Theo?), the jazz trio accompanying our Sunday brunch, the incredible blini/salmon brunch, it was a stellar experience. Just what we expect out of the tradition of Sunday brunch in Old Montreal. Food was truly incredible, tartes aux pommes délicieux and the mimosas great! We will definitely return on our next trip to Montreal!

    Thank you very much, Judy, for your wonderful feedback! We are so pleased to know that Lorenzo & your server made your brunch an occasion to remember. We look forward to celebrating many more occasions with you & your loved ones!
