    Great experience to try once. Food was ok, not great, and the courses moved too slowly. This isn't exactly a dinner you want to linger over...it's freezing! It wasn't even crowded so I don't know why service was so slow.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 2/16/2013
    Eating in a restaurant made entirely of ice is certainly an amazing experience! While it is very expensive, the price is worth it for this one-time opportunity. The food is par (although the warm cheese fondue and the Cornish game hen were delightful). The biggest issue was our server was rather unpleasant. Perhaps it is a cultural thing because a majority of the waitstaff we had in Montreal weren't friendly. Either which way, the ambiance was incredible! You need reservations (otherwise you'll have to pay the entrance fee to get into the Snow Village) and dress WARMLY! If you think you have too many layers on - you're wrong!

    The concept is great. The place is cool but complete lack of execution. The menu sounds good but the service is very slow and it is too cold to linger. We went for lunch and had to pay admission fee on top of high lunch cost. The hotel itself is neat to see but again just does not live up to description. I would not go again.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    Eating in a ice restaurant was a very unique experience. However, my friend was a little disappointed in the quality of the food, including the overcooked Cornish hen, and grainy fondue. In addition to that, the waiter could not uphold the grandeur reputation we were expecting. He forgot the soup of our appetizer and was in general, very unhelpful. Overall, great ambiance and experience, but it was unfortunate that the food and service was not able to hold up to expectations.

    My friends were visiting from an asian country and I wanted to give them a unique experience. My expectations were low, as far as the food was concerned, but I was particularly impressed by this aspect. The chef had a very strong knowledge of the Quebec terroir and took advantage of it. The food was warm, rich, earthy, a perfect complement to the cold. The quail was of the highest quality and well chosen to accept the extended heating it was going to endure. Subtle cooking would not have survived the Ice Restaurant. Everyone was quite impressed and satisfied with the food. The service was friendly, helpful and attentive. We will return for special occasions. Highly recommend it. Not a tourist trap. Truly a memorable experience.

    This is really a place that you're paying for the ambiance. The food is not really anything to write home about, but if you're down for a very cool experience (cool is used for both the temperature and the atmosphere) then it's worth trying at least once. The lunch table d'hote lets you enjoy it for a smaller price than the dinner, so perhaps that's your best bet.

    Wonderful evening even if it was -12c in the restaurant , servers pleasant, limited menu yet very tasty. When dining in -12c just remember that your utensils will stick to your mouth!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 1/24/2013
    Restaurant de Glace Pommery which is part of Montreal's Snow Village on Ile Ste-Helene is a great one-time experience. The carvings in the ice hotel and restaurant are captivating. Dining in an ice restaurant in -20 degree Celsius is a little chilly even though the ice seats are covered with a plastic barrier and topped with fake fur. The wait staff was fantastic in delivering our food from the preparation facility outside the restaurant to our table. A carrot soup and a mushroom risotto were served piping hot and delicious. The glazed salmon served with Naan bread was a strange combination but edible. A chocolate "fondant" cake was not warm or "fondant" except for the pool of creme anglaise it was sitting in.

    We went on a very cold day. It offers virtually no protection from the temperature, but offers a great experience despite this! Brought some new yorkers and despite the cold they were happy to have gone! The food was served in logical ways and eating with gloves on was different and not as difficult as I expected. The staff was friendly and one of our courses came slow, but we were provided with fondue! The food was delicious - there isn't much selection on the menu, so picky eaters should look in advance, but it shouldn't be a problem for most!

    Restaurant was not even set up until half an hour after the reservation time. No apology was given, nor was their any indication that the staff was concern about how late they were starting. We were told that the nice booth seating was reserved for other guests, but us and several other patrons finished well before any other guests showed up to take those seats. The food was mediocre at best and grossly overpriced. I understand it costs a lot to build an ice restaurant, but there was very little value provided for the cost.

    This was an extraordinary experience -- eating on inside a giant "igloo" carved from ice and snow, sitting at tables made of blocks of ice, on top of a warm fur on an ice seat. The food was average, but you don't come here for the food, you're here for the chance to have a meal or drink inside this glowing ice cavern. A lot of fun, and a great experience.

    Dont expect to enjoy a nice long meal..its an ice restaurant so its going to be cold like a freezer and the tables and chairs start to drip from your body heat. Food looks like its warm because of the steam coming off it but its cold. Service was poor. We asked for plastic bags to cover our legs from the dripping table, she never came back. Its def. a one time deal, been there done that never do it again.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 1/20/2013
    The lunch was good (I think it was worth the price). The restaurant is entirely made of snow (with carvings in it). The tables and chairs are also made of ice. It was impressive and special. The disadvantages for me were: The table (made of ice) was dripping on our legs since the inside temperature was more than zero I guess. But it was not a big deal. Also, there is a price to the meal at the restaurant but there is also an additional entrance fee of about 15$ per person to get to the restaurant. This entrance ticket allows one to visit the interior of the ice hotel (wich is also impressive) but for someone who only wants to eat at the ice restaurant, it becomes quite more expensive.

    We really enjoyed our experience. It's an atmosphere I won't forget. Dining in our snow pants, and full winter gear was strange, but fun. The food was "okay"-nothing too exciting, but it was good. We ate there for lunch and it was perfectly fine to have our children present. Overall-a very unique, fun and memorable experience!

    The food is only ok for the price but the setting and experience is unique. Dress very warmly and you'll enjoy this very special setting. For me it's a one-time thing though, the 200$ + bill did not warrant going again... If you've always wanted to eat or drink at an ice bar/restaurant, this one is very good but know that you're paying for the giant ice fort you're eatin in rather than fine dining!

    We celebrated our daughter's 11th birthday at this unique and memorable venue. It was an experience that was much more than just dinner. The complimentary admission to the Snow Village is a nice feature of reservations at the Restaurant de Glace Pommery. We were very glad to have arrived an hour early to explore the hotel. We were also glad that we came dressed in our snow pants and ski jackets; even though we dressed warmly, by the end of dinner we were still quite cold! Friendly and efficient service was provided by young and vibrant wait staff. Overall, this was a great way to celebrate a special occasion.

But then who wouldn't want to take a walk around and see the sights. Great food and excellent servic. We did not know what to expect of the adventure but well worth the evening.

    The concept of dining in an oversize igloo on tables and chairs made of ice is unique and refreshing. The staff were all friendly and attentive. The food was quite tasty and abundant. The experience was definitely memorable however I would not necessarily repeat due to the cost which was quite high (six with one bottle of wine came close to $600.00 tax and the suggested tip included).

    For the price I paid, per person, I would have preferred to have my own plate of food instead of having to share. They didn't give enough food (meat). The bouillon they served was cold even though they told us it was meant to harm us up. The chairs were wet and they didn't have enough ice glass shots for us. On the up side it was a very beautiful place.

    It was a lot of fun for the family to experience the ice hotel and restaurant. I was underwhelmed with the meal choice/quality, given website touted the meal as having been crafted by a Michelin chef. Limited choice prix fixe dinner was either a beef rib or a vegetarian dinner. My wife choose the vegetarian and it was an increadibly uninspired meal at that: sliced carrots, brussels sprouts and bulgar, very little flavour. My daughter and I selected the ribs. The meat was fall off the bone tender, however, the gravy was bitter because the meat was slightly burnt. Our meal was accompanied with carrots and brussel sprouts. As mentioned not very inspired and for the price we paid... The soup and desert were good but not enough to go back

    Was visiting Montreal and the snow village. Thought it would be fun to dine in an ice restaurant. The food was actually very good. We were served the three course dinner. Appetizers included salmon with caviar, butternut squash soup with truffle sauce. A beef tenderloin roast with mashed potatoes and a delicious dessert. (can't remember what it was) Overall the food was very good and the price was expensive to match. It is more of a novelty dining inside an ice restaurant. It was warm and the dining tables were melting and dripping onto my wife's lap. It was a good time overall.

    I am sure the restaurant is super magical on a cold day, unfortunately, March 2012 has not been that cold. The restaurant was basically empty, yet they managed to seat us right next to the only other people there so we had no privacy. The food was good but seemed to have been sitting out for some time. The whole igloo was basically melting over our heads, but the table melting in my lap was the icing on the cake.
