Accent sur les légumes de saison, présentation exceptionnelle sans compromis sur les saveurs. Tout était très fin.
Service courtois et aimable. J’ai passé une très belle soirée et me suis régalée.

Very enjoyable unique evening almost like a show with each course and wine introduced by host or server.
Expensive and really a vegetarian restaurant but the food beautifully presented and delicious. So you leave feeling you had a one of a kind experience that you really probably can only afford once a year! Was $300 plus tip for two with the 5 course meal only - there is a 3 course slightly less expensive and a 7 course, even more expensive.
So go if you can afford it - you are treating yourself!

Très belle expérience culinaire. Chaque service était intéressant, l’accord met-vin tout autant! De belles découvertes. Le cocktail au gin-champignons-café était particulièrement surprenant! Avec un service sympathique.

Original mouth watering food. Who would have think of using mushroom as an ingredient for ice cream but it works. Or pairing trout tartar with pumpkin seeds. Or picking beets with beet and sumac vinegars and then pairing the beets with ricotta and nectarine. Add in an affordable wine list filled with private imports and you have a great restaurant that won’t break the budget

Outstanding! Always a mind blowing experience at Île Flottante! With each of the menus that I’ve tried, what stands out the most is the opportunity to understand food through the lens of Sean’s unique combinations and creative brilliance. Looking forward to the next time!

What a novel idea. Tasting menus that can be a surprise (if you want - you just tell them if you have any dietary restrictions) and each one is incentive, beautifully plated and delicious. A truly wonderful dining experience. Great service and good value. You won't be disappointed.

A unique experience. Definitely only for the adventurous. It was like an art show for your eyes and palate. I had high expectations and they were exceeded. The only disappointment was because I expected the building to look like the "floating island" in their logo.

World class prix-fixe menu with a welcoming ambiance. While the dining is elevated, it's approachable and doesn't take itself too seriously.

First time here was 2 years ago when it was Les Deux Singes. One of the most outstanding tasting menu meals I've ever had., and I've had them all over the world! The Chef, Sean, is a culinary artist! Can't wait to go back next year!

There is alot of thought into the design and aesthetics of the dishes, evident in the pretty plating of the dishes.

The service is great and the bartender is willing to create drinks according to your palette.

However the taste of the food was very subdued and just a little flat. Of 7 dishes, I would struggle to recall any. I do give them credit for being vegetable forward and not relying on meat to carry a menu.

It was a very fun experience. I expected the atmosphere to be a bit stiff, but it was relaxed yet energized. The service was excellent, including total consideration for my husband's lactose intolerance. The prices are a bit steep (aperitif, 5-course menu and bottle of wine), but well worth it. The 5+ small servings were delicious.

L’île Flottante est de loin le meilleur restaurant que nous avons mangé à Montréal. La dégustation des plats est salivante et le service est impeccable. Nous avons été accueilli chaleureusement et nous avons été pris en soins du début jusqu'à la fin. Nous avions l’impression de faire partie de la famille. Merci beaucoup, nous reviendrons assurément. :) Olivier!

It's a little unfair to dock one star each for service and ambiance. The setting is fine and suitable, just don't expect fancy. And service was terrific with the exception of the sommelier who needs polish. Otherwise I would HIGHLY recommend this place. Terrific, creative, even daring food. The combination of colors, spices, textures is highly innovative and wonderfully tasty. We've eaten all over the world and this would rate among the top 5. A very satisfying night!

This restaurant is filled with whimsy, in its decor, it’s food, and in the way it interacts with diners. Serious food and a bit of silliness in everything else. Nothing else quite like it.
