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.

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
Merci
Je reviendrai!

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.

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!

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.

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 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...

This place is flat out spectacular. Plan to stay about 2.5 hours. The tasting menu is creative and delicious. Almost everyone gets the five course. Seven courses would be too much. The servers are delightful and the cuisine full of surprises. Definitely plan ahead to go.
