    Nous avons adoré notre expérience comme d'habitude, le seul point constructif que je pourrais dire est à propos du 2e plat que nous avons reçu: Je trouve qu'il n'était pas à la hauteur des autres plats. Mais le menu change à chaque saison alors j'y retournerai au printemps !

    Returned to this restaurant after about 3 years and after it reincarnated itself from the former Deux Singes de Montarvie, my favorite restaurant of all time. The excellence and creativity in the kitchen are still there, and the service is just right: attentive when you need it, unobtrusive when you don't. I had the vegetarian degustation, and was beyond satisfied by the 7 services. The mix of flavors and consistencies did not leave me feeling like I had missed the "weight" of a meat-centered meal. My only tiny "complaints" are that, in the newer, larger incarnation, you can no longer sit overlooking the kitchen and watch the chefs prepare the dishes you are about to eat -- that was always such a pleasure; and I remember the music selection being more specific (especially vintage soul music). I'm old-school, from a time in Montreal when restaurant music was taken very seriously and not left to chance. My dinner (25 Jan 2023) was 98/100. If the music had been also matched to the mood, it would have been 100/100. Still, 98/100 is excellent !

    Overall, the sommelier was very knowledgeable and the food was quite good. The rest of the staff was fast paced and didn’t make the experience feel like it was worth the audacious amount that they charge. The food was basic at best. If you need to impress clients with an expense account i would say, go for it! Otherwise, I would not bother.

    It is now my favorite restaurants anywhere. The food is quite amazing. And they are more accommodating than any restaurant I have ever eaten at. We had a table of 6 with one vegan, two vegetarians, two pescatarians and one person who was eating the meat they served. On a prix fixe set menu, everyone's dish was amazing! I can't wait to go back!!!

    As usual, the quality of the food, the innovation and the friendly service confirm that Ile Flottante is one of the, if not the, best restaurant in Montreal. Whether it is for a special occasion or just a regular Thursday dinner, you will be introduced to new flavors and will leave eager to come back to try the next seasonal menu.

    Wow! I made a reservation expecting a memorable dining experience, but Ile Flottante truly knocked our socks off. Every dish was surprising - all had ambitiously bold flavors but still managed to be well balanced and thus beautiful and delicious. Same went for the drink pairings - unusually flavorful wines stood up to the interesting plates. No forgettable table wine here. Everything was presented by a knowledgeable and unpretentious staff which resulted in a delightful, elevated, yet still relaxed meal that was a highlight of our Montreal trip!
