    Wish didn’t surrounded by extremely loud people. Basically getting only 20% of what the waiter said. Hope they could improve the decoration to reduce noise.

    My 3rd time eating here and it continues to impress. The food is outstanding. The sommelier is amazing. She always finds new and original ways to expand your wine horizons while keeping her pairings very sophisticated. The service is outstanding. Also, as a repeat customer, they do keep notes on you. For example, they were aware of a food allergy from my previous visits. The value and attention to detail in this gem of a restaurant is unparalleled. The restaurant was repainted recently, which has also brightened and refreshed the space. This is my favorite restaurant in MTL for sure.

    We loved our dinner. Each course was beautiful and delicious and the service was also wonderful. We especially loved the wine pairing - the sommelier made it such a special experience, the history and stories she shared about each wine were so entertaining and interesting, and each wine itself was unique and paired so well with each dish. Loved it!

    The staff were very good and explained every dish and the wine/s we chose, the food was very good but not quite brilliant (not too far off). However, combine all the factors, ambience, staff, food, wines, friendliness etc and is a good 9/10 Don’t expect for a quick experience, we love taking our time and absorbing the experience and the moment - that makes this place for us - a must do when in Montréal

    Probably one of the best tasting menus Ile Flottante has ever put together. The clam chowder duck tartar and pasta we the high-lights of the night. And the wines pairings were equally good.

    Service attentionné et chaleureux. Très bonne connaissance des plats et du vin de la part des serveurs. Nourriture exquise, surprenante et subtile. Le seul point négatif porte sur les délais entre les services, qui se rallongeaient vers la fin. Mais je recommande une visite au restaurant sans hésitation.

    Service friendly and efficient. The menu is imaginative and the courses are ample; the halibut starter was absolutely delicious. The salad that followed was decent, but after such a starter, it was little disappointing. The rest of the dishes continued to impress us.

    The savoury dishes were all excellent. The dessert was so so. The main was that it took a really long time. Between sitting down and paying, we were there for 3.5 hours and the first of two dessert courses took 45 minutes to come out after we finished our mains, and the second took another 30 minutes

    Least pleasant restaurant experience of my life. Got sick and waited forever for food. It took 45 minutes to get the first of the 7 courses, with no communication or snack to chew on while waiting. After 1h40 minutes we were only at our 3rd dish which was... Okay. The first one was very good and the bread amazing. The second one was underwhelming. After that we got both sick at the same time and told the waitress. The manager came to us and eventually offered the meal for free, so we left after almost 2 hours and not even half way through the meal. At least the waitresses and manager were polite. The ambiance is good.

    I have been at least once per year since 2019, including eating on picnic table in street during peak covid, but this will probably be the last. Every savory dish was between over salty and WAAAAAY over salty. All the animal proteins were tiny, the filet mignon (only one cooked to good temperature) especially so… can’t have been more than 1 ounce, if that. The fish was overcooked and dry, difficult for halibut that has been sous vide, but apparently not impossible. The duck meat was tough with its fat not rendered. Sauces and foams were mostly good, although the jus with the filet mignon was so salty that my lips were stinging. Predessert was very nice and refreshing. Dessert had flavours that were ok, although the rice flour cake thing was dry and all the bad parts of gluten free baking, and the panacotta was unrecognizable as a panacotta: not an expert but it was either underset/broken/something weird, with a texture more akin to an overcooked and scrambled crème caramel than to a panacotta. Service was great. Friendly, patient, attentive. Venue was very loud, and then about halfway through the meal I noticed line cook going to adjust volume and was shocked that he increased it further. Overall, a pale shadow of what it was.
