The perfect taste! Unique food, the best in Montreal! And people are so nice!
We were WOWed by our experience at Ile Flottante! We opted for the 3- and 5- plate service. After requesting one adventurous and one vegetarian with wine pairings, our servers surprised us over and over again. Each course was as beautiful and creative as it was delicious and the wine pairings were unusual and amazing. My husband's salad and my main course were two of the best dishes each of us had ever eaten anywhere. We have already recommended this spot to numerous people and of course we'd go back in a heartbeat.
Best birthday I ever had was at Île Flottante
It was Delicious! Everything was perfect, from the food to the Staff!
I will truly recommend, as well as book there from now on for my international guests who will be more than delighted to discover and re-discover this great tasting menu!
Very good service, outstanding food presentation, good concept but
3 of the 5 dishes where way too salty!
Restaurant très agréable. Le service est rapide, à l’écoute des clients. Nous avons pris le repas avec 5 plats, c’était très bon, original dans la présentation, beaucoup de saveurs dans tous les plats. Le vin est cependant très cher. On arrive à un repas à 120 dollars par personne .
As always this is by far Montreal's best. The food, the people everything about Ile Flottante is simply amazing. The 5 course tasting us a must. Can't wait to go back.
Overall great experience!
Nourriture très bonne et soirée très réussie! Malgré de nombreuses intolérances alimentaires de mon côté, les chefs ont accepté de me préparer un 3 services hors du commun et j’ai alors senti qu’il s’agissait d’un endroit qui se respecte et apprécie sa clientèle. Service impeccable.
Incredible experience, as it was the first time we went. Attention to detail and such personalized service makes it a great special occasion spot. Finally Montreal has a vegetable-focused upscale-but-still-casual restaurant and it happens to be amazing and in my neighbourhood! How lovely that I do not feel limited to 1-2 dishes on the menu, which has been the case for the past 20 years here (aside from the long-departed and lamented Les Chèvres and Montée de lait). This spot is seriously deserving of its online popularity! Love that it is also completely unpretentious, which is not always the case in Mile End these days. Only draw back is the level of noise - which seems to be the challenge for so many restaurants. But definitely more tolerable than most spots - we could still hear each other. Keep up the good work IF!
This is my 3rd or 4th time at this place and I'm always amazed at the quality of the food. If I had to qualify it with only one word, it would be Flavors. This restaurant is not like any other place I know in Montreal.
We were there with another couple. It was there first time there. They chose wine pairing with their menu and loved it. My husband and I don't drink much, so we were just fine with one drink, but the real value is the food: so creative, so full of flavors, so unique!
Book your evening. You won't regret it!
The service was excellent . My husband and I love to try new restaurants in Montreal and this was a difinite success .. we both took the five course meal .. and we pleasantly full at the end .. every serving was unique and delicious !!a definite Must !
Just one of my favorite ! love the staff, love the open kitchen, love them !
Always a unique warm delicious experience
C'était parfait. Comme déjà mentionné dans le passé, je vous considère au même pied d'égalité que Toqué. Cette recherche dans les plats, la finesse, la fraîcheur, tout y est.
Une mention spéciale pour le granité de feta. Quelle originalité et géniale.
Quant au dessert 'style poudding au riz', vous m'avez épaté, car je n'étais pas convaincu par le titre. L'art d'amener un plat à un niveau supérieur.
Déjà hâte d'y retourner pour y découvrir de nouveaux plats.
Absolutely delicious and such beautiful presentation - Can't wait to go back!
Very good service, and the presentation was quite nice. The food, however, was a bit one note and didn't have the layers and complexity expected of this type of meal at this price point. In addition, one member of our party became ill after the meal, perhaps due to a lack of dietary accommodation that slipped by. Look for other options in Montreal.
Must try. Food is excellent small portions but very filling. A little too expensive. Service is excellent
We had an amazing dinner at Il Flottante. We own a restaurant in the states and went to Montreal for a few days of eating. This was our very favorite meal of our trip, and our last dinner, so we were super happy to have gotten a reservation. The food was creative, interesting and so well balanced. The service was personable and friendly, but also polished and professional. It was one of those dining experiences that surprises you, and re-energizes a love of food. Thank you for a great night!
Very accommodating service.
Best boutique restaurant in town!
Amazing food - comparable to the best. We had a party of 6 and it was no problem for some to have the 3 course and others the 5 course menu. They also took great care with special dietary needs of one of our guests.
This was one (if not the) best dining experiences we’ve had. Each plate was inspired. The staff was spectacular. Our party of four ordered two 3 course, one 5 course, and one 7 course meal. This worked perfectly. We ordered two vegetarian options and shared every course and two bottles of wine. We couldn’t have enjoyed this evening more.
Shared the 7 service with my girlfriend, we were full and the food was awesome! Will come back for sure!
Great service. Delicious food.
The best restaurant by far in Montreal. Creative food. Not the place for a quick bite- it takes time for all the courses and there's no pressure to get through the meal. Extraordinary food, carefully and elegantly prepared.
Une très belle découverte. Nous avons opté pour le menu 5 services. Tous les plats étaient magnifiques, originaux, très techniques, 3 étaient juste parfaits dans l'équilibre des saveurs et les techniques: la salade grecque aux calamars, la côte levée de porc, et le riz 5 façons (mon coup de coeur!). Par contre l'île flottante était beaucoup trop sucrée
Service impeccable, on ne s'est pas senties rushees
Great meal. Great value. And very friendly and attentive staff. Excited to come back again.
Not worth the price. Very small portions and the flavours were pretty ordinary. Seemed overly fancy for the actual quality of the dishes. Wine list and the waiter's knowledge of wine was disappointing.
IT was our anniversary and a recommendation from a past guest.. my wife is a great cook and hard to please... YOU GUYS HIT THE BULLSEYE! Thank for the GREAT EXPERIENCE!!!!!
We really enjoyed our evening here, great space, really friendly staff and fantastic food.
My wife had the 3 course and I had the 7 course meal with some raw wine festival exhibitors from Italy.
Stands out were the omelette seaweed sandwich, greek salad and the soup.
They told us they change the menu about every two months, we will be back in January!
Superbe soirée ! Le service est impeccable, les délicieux plats sont surprenants et les vins proposés dans la formule "pairing" sont de belles découvertes. Pour notre tablée de 4, c'est unanime, on y retourne !
The staff were nice and clear in communication, sommelier was very helpful. Visually impleyet pleasing place. Loved out five menu course. Definitely will be back.
Went there for our anniversary, we took the 7 courses tasting menu. Excellent food, decent portions for a big appetite like mine, wine paring prices reasonable. Service could feel more upscale for the pricing.
Service, food, staff, atmosphere, it was amazing in every way!
Absolutely amazing experience! We did the five course meal and it was worth it!
We will fly from NYC to Montreal just for dinner at ile flottante. Food is unparalleled. Warmth of staff transporting. Creative and good for you at the same time. Our dinner the nxt night at a high end Montréal restaurant paled by comparison.
Nous sommes allé souper en amoureux pour la fête de ma blonde. Le système de services "sans menu" nous a plu et nous ne l'avons pas regretté. Un 5 services impeccable et remarquable. Une cuisine fine, raffinée et pleine de saveurs. La première bouchée de l'amuse-bouche nous met directement dans l'ambiance d'un restaurant qui gastro ou semi-gastro. Je le recommande vivement à tous les épicuriens, nous avons passé un excellent moment.
Restaurant and food was great! Tasting menu 3 courses is good for small to normal appetite, take the 5 or 7 if you are really hungry! Staff is super friendly and the restaurant is small and quiet. Definitely recommend to discover great and original meals!
I would definitely recommend this restaurant. I came here for my girlfriend's birthday and it was a success !
I have been eating here with friends and family once or twice a year for a bunch of years, now. I'm an occasional regular? But they always remember me, they're always genuinely warm and welcoming. The food never disappoints and is great value for outstanding quality and inventiveness. The ability to pair a glass of wine with each course at a set price is a fantastic idea and adds to the whole experience. Looking forward to meeting again...
