Incroyable expérience! Plats uniques et recherchés. Tout était savoureux. Cuisine créative et formulée à partir des produits du marché Jean-talon. Service impeccable, attentionné, professionnel. Très bonne sélection musicale, toute en subtilité et peu de bruit. Espace suffisant entre les tables.
Merci, nous passerons le mot et reviendrons certainement!

We enjoyed Saturday night dinner on Feb 16th...for Valentines's day. Ile flottante is our favourite restaurant! We love the ambience and the service! But the food is awesome! It is absolutely delicious and so creative. Everytime we eat here our expectations are surpassed! All the ingredients are fresh. The plates are colourful and creative in appearance and in taste. This restaurant is definitely one of the top restaurants in Montreal! We recommend it highly! Reservations are definitely required.

Discovery of the year! Sat at the bar, super cozy and got to chat with the friendly staff a bit. All the dishes were aesthetically pleasing and equally delicious. Took the 5-course meal with the wine pairing (loved the vin nature pairing) and an extra dessert because we had FOMO. Great value for money, I will be going again!

Premièrement, j’y retourne car la cuisine est créative et succulente.

Par contre, cela manque de rodage. Trop de serveuses s’occupent des mêmes tables donc ne sont pas au courant de ce qui s’est déjà dit ou demandée. Avoir un service attentionné et présent est tjrs bon mais trop est comme pas assez. Servir de l’eau continuellement en passant devant le visage du client n’est pas top. Service long même si on mentionne que nous avons un temps limité.

Donc conclusion, on y retourne car un veau potentiel mais une refonte du service est à refaire.

Highly innovative and tasty food! The most interesting I had in a long time in Montreal - even given the city's wealth of outstanding restaurants. The atmosphere is calm and relaxing and the staff very nice and knowledgeable about food and wine. I highly recommend it.

Probably the best restaurant in Montréal. The service is very friendly. The food was creative and really good tasting without being overwhelming. The wine pairings were really well done and gave us a chance to discover wines we wouldn't have chosen otherwise. Don't miss it.

Fantastic experience. From the appetizers to the dessert, each dish is carefully prepared and presented. If you want to discover new tastes (and combinations of), this is the place to go ! Warm atmosphere and people, and in my opinion, one of the best restaurant in Montreal.

Belle ambiance même si c'était un peu bruyant pour la première moitié de la soirée. Le service était impeccable avec des explications claires et succinctes de chacun des plats. La nourriture nous faisait voyager (j'ai enfin compris pour on appelle ça un amuse-gueule!) et les accords mets-vins étaient tout à fait sublimes. Bref, on planifie déjà notre prochaine sortie.

Fabulous dinner! We chose the 3 course meal with wine pairing. The menu is set - there are no a la carte choices. Every dish was unusual, refined, well balanced. The wines were all organic and minimally processed.

We were unexpectedly stranded in Montréal overnight in the midst of a series of winter storms, and decided to make lemons out of lemonade by booking a table at Ile Flottante. It almost made up for the 24-hour delay in our travel plans! We had the seven-course tasting menu and everything was simply wonderful -- one of the best meals I've had in a long time! Really inventive, gorgeously plated, amazing food with perfectly balanced tastes and textures. They do have a wine pairing, but it sounded a bit too eclectic/quirky for our taste, so we ordered a nice bottle of Côtes du Rhône.

I took my girlfriend here for her birthday and had the most wonderful time. The the different options for the tasting menu allow for occasion based flexibility as the three course is very reasonably priced for the quality of food. We had the five course with the wine pairing which is fairly expensive for two people working entry level jobs but none of that money is wasted as the staff is well informed on their products, from wine to the food. They have extremely prompt service and a welcoming atmosphere.

I have recommended this restaurant to all of my friends as it is vegetarian/vegan friendly, has reasonably priced options for a monthly date night, and when you want to indulge in luxury, they can deliver in spades.

This was the best meal we had in Montreal. The food is thoughtful and creative. Beautiful presentation with attention to detail. Excellent wine service. Friendly and attentive staff. The chef came out to speak with us and the staff gave us recommendations for other restaurants and bars to go to. We loved out experience - and we come from a food culture. This place exceeded our expectations.

Wow. What a great experience. I dined at Ile Flottante with 2 girlfriends recently and we were not disappointed. We all chose the surprise tasting menu and the kitchen was very accommodating with my friends' dietary needs. Each course was an explosion of flavours paired with lovely wines we would not have chosen ourselves, but which all paired perfectly. The staff were all very energetic and welcoming. Lots of smiles and detailed descriptions of each dish and pairing. An experience we won't forget!

We loved this restaurant. We did 5 courses with wine pairing and had a wonderful time. The only pairing we didn’t like was the sparkling wine with the chowder but everything else was perfection. The service was great. Our only negative comment would be that we were very cold during our meal. It was cold out and the entrance isn’t well insulated. Otherwise it was a phenomenonal dining experience. We will definitely be back.

The food was good, not great, until the last main course, a sandwich steak over-cooked and stringy as hell - not edible. For the money, lots of better places to go.
