    Ce fut une excellente soirée. La nourriture, le service et l'ambiance sont parfaits. Cet aspect mérite amplement un 5, mais le prix de l'appariement vin repas est beaucoup trop élevé pour la toute petite quantité de vin servie et même la qualité des vins choisis. C'est tout de même un nedroit fantastique où nous retournerons.

    Nourriture excellente, service un peu ralenti en fin de soirée, mais les propositions d’accords de vins sont impeccables. Service très courtois, plats bien expliqués, présentation raffinée et mariage des saveurs bien dosé.

    Loved every bit of it!!! The tasting menu was exquisite. Each dish was so flavouful. I especially loved how playful they were with corn for this sitting. The food, along with the perfect wine pairings, makes this place one of the best in the city. I can't wait to go back when I'm in town next.

    The owner and staff were beyond hospitable and welcoming. The food was so delicious and beautiful presented. The wine pairing was perfect but worth it just to hear about them from the most effervescent sommelier ever! What a wonderful experience in fine dining. I would go back to Montréal just to eat there again!

    The food was really creative and excellent. The service was friendly and attentive, maybe a bit slow. The menu is a 6-course but they forgot one. They apologized warmly and offered to us 2 courses + a cocktail for free. Overall it was a good experience and we will come back for the next season.

    Food and service is great. I would like it if there was a bit more food, twice now I came out of the experience still a bit hungry. The service also takes a long time, we arrived at 7pm and left a 10h30. This gives us a 30min time for each service which is just a bit to long in my opinion. Other than that everything is great and I would wholeheartedly recommend the experience.

    I must say it was a great culinary experience all together the service was very careful the explanation very accurate. The quality of the food and the creativity of the chef outstanding. A nice discovery in Montreal may I suggest a shorter time for dinner as it took almost 3 hours from start to last dessert. Apart from that excellent evening spent last night . Thanks to all the amazing team.

    We absolutely loved our dinner at Île flottante! The courses were all delicious, at times creative and fun, at times elegant and refined. The vegetables were beautifully elevated and local ingredients were showcased at their best. The service was courteous yet warm and friendly. Ambiance was lively, a little too loud for intimate conversations but that was due to enthusiastic customers rather than loud music. I look forward to going back next time we're in town! A truly wonderful dinner and a place I will highly recommend to anyone looking for a splurge dining experience.

    Great experience! We went as a couple for my birthday and the food was amazing! The somelier was really attentive in getting us the best red to couple with our 5 services menu (since I didn’t want the actual “accord vin” service that had whites in the beginning). The rich savouriness of each bite was incredible! It’s pricy, but it’s worthy! Five stars for me…

    First time experience at Île Flottante. Cocktails and wine were decently priced. Overall, the food was excellent. I am a professional chef and here are my comments on certain dishes. The ravioli was delicious, the bowl and filling were warm, but the ravioli was undercooked. The protein dish was slightly disappointing. Although the veal was perfectly cooked and hot, the plates and purées were room temperature/not hot. Both desserts were phenomenal and very well executed. Staff was nice but the atmosphere was too casual for the quality of the food. Chairs are very uncomfortable. Finally, a written menu would have been nice to follow along. Compliments to the Chef!

    Quelle belle expérience! Les plats étaient beaux et les saveurs exquises. L’entrée était magnifique, j’en ai encore l’eau à la bouche. Tout était bon. Le risotto était délicieux accompagné d’un petit saké, incroyable…. Ensuite le ravioli , mais quelle merveille pour les yeux et la bouche accompagné d’un vin blanc , c’était sublime. Les desserts étaient beaux et bons accompagnés d’un petit madère. Bravo aux cuisiniers.
