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!

We had an outstanding dinner at Ile Flottante. We chose the 5 course tasting menu at $ 70 and each course was creative and delicious ... lots of interesting flavours and combinations. The wine was very good and reasonably priced . I can’t wait to return !

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.

Not only was the food beyond exquisite, each dish was an absolute work of art. The service was warm and attentive, the bartender was one of the best in Canada, and the atmosphere gently caressed my senses in a way that allowed me to fully enjoy the 11-course fantasy that was put in front of me. I brought my girlfriend here for her 30th birthday all the way from Dallas and I absolutely stand by that decision. In fact, I'd be more than happy to eat every meal from now until the day I die at Ile Flottante.

Where to begin? We returned to Montreal from NYC 2 years after dining at Les deux Singe, one of our favorite meals of all time. Ile Flottante, lives up to and may even supersede our prior dining experience. The staff is courteous, the wine list is vast, the food is perfect. Each dish and the entire meal is well balanced and each dish more beautifully plated and served than the next. The meal was vegetarian heavy and as a true carnivore, I didn't miss the meat at all. Can't wait to return for another amazing meal.

This is my first experience at such a unique restaurant. All of the dishes came with it's own little surprise of flavour and texture. I highly recommend coming to Ile Flottante especially to the more adventurous foodies out there :)

Ile Flottante offers a fixed 3, 5 or 7 course meal. Contents are a surprise but always seasonal and delicious. A deconstructed eggplant parmigiana and a sous-vide artichoke heart were tonight’s standouts. Having said that, all 7 dishes were excellent. The bartender prepares 3 special cocktails each night, all of which are worth having. For us, he made a special pairing of amari, which were a revelation. A very welcoming place to enjoy the creativity of Montréal’s best chef of 2018.

Très bien.
Un petit hic c’est une musique un peu forte quelque fois.
Autre petit hic est de ne pas laissé le cocktail se terminer avant de débuter le service.

Sinon, c’est une place à recommander et retourner.

Bonne soirée.

Really good food if willing to explore since it's tasting menu only. Can only choose if vegetarian or not.

Service was great, plenty of people on hand working the floor and working as a single team on all the tables.

Good atmosphere and music with a warm decor

We had the 7 course menu with the wine pairing. Amazing. Every effort is made to give us a delicious experience. The staff is knowledgeable and eager to give us every details on what we're eating and drinking. Presentation of food is delicate but not pretentious. And the taste. Pure delight. After each service, we figured the next one would be not quite at par with that one. Nope. Consistently surprising.

About half the menu changes every 3 months or so. Don't wait too long. And go with the wine pairing, the sommelier knows her trade.

Très bon service, nous étions assis à côté d'une baie vitrée donnant sur la cuisine ce qui est une vue agréable et intéressante.
En revanche il y avait trop d'ail dans les plats (environ 3 sur 5) ce qui n'était pas à mon goût personnellement. L'accord mets et vin était en revanche parfait.

Comme à chaque fois, Île Flottante est une expérience gastronomique extraordinaire.
La qualité et la fraîcheur des ingrédients; l’originalité des plats et de leur présentation; la souplesse pour les restrictions alimentaires; le service chaleureux et généreux; la jolie sélection de vins (la carte recèle plusieurs trésors); le décor accueillant et enveloppant. Bref, tout est réuni pour passer un moment d’exception.

Wonderful ambiance and experience. Bartender Emile was excellent, with very creative and unique cocktails. Service was great and the food was phenomenal: fresh ingredients and unique blends that all came together perfectly. In five days in Montreal, this was the best food we had by far. Will come back and highly recommend.
