Flawless service and astounding food! If you are a foodie you need to experience this restaurant! From the 1st to last course it was flawlessly timed and executed. The chefs cook in a glass kitchen with fresh ingredients at thier fingertips. Our veal main was to die for!

Their food was beautiful and unbelievably tasted even better than it looked. Service was awesome. If you are looking for a special dining experience, look no further. If I had the night to do over I would go for the vegetarian 3 or 5 course and order the Ile Flottante signature dish for final dessert. I always believe they offer wine pairing but do not remember seeing this on the menu.

My girlfriend and I went there for a fine dinner. We both knew the previous place and loved it (2 singes). Amazing. The food was even better, service still way above standards. It's an improvement. Just go and enjoy a real treat, really.

 (New England)·Dined on November 24, 2017

The reincarnation of Deux Singes into Ils Flottante comes with no change to its spectacularly innovative and flavorful offerings. As we did a year ago, we opted for the vegetarian tasting menu and had our best meal ever - well - since we ate here a year ago.

Service is impeccable, although a bit impersonal since the most conveniently available server will deliver your food. However, they all seem equally knowledgeable in describing the varied array of unexpectedly combined ingredients in each dish. (Miso goat butter!?!)

I worried a bit at the pictures I had seen of the expansion and the color they had chosen - blue - a lousy color for food. But the color is so dark that is just a step or two away from black, yet infinitely more interesting. The darkness of the wall color helps to focus the well-deserved attention where it belongs - on the plates of gorgeously presented food. The expansion also allows for a bit more, and welcome, elbow room between the tables.

This is still the restaurant we compare all others to, usually unfavorably. Vegetarian offerings don't have to be bland and boring and Ils Flottante proves that spectacularly.

The team at Les Deux Singes de Montarvie has always served up some of my favourite meals ever. To say I was excited to try their new incarnation, Île Flottante, would be an understatement. And they did not disappoint. A beautiful tasting menu in a gorgeous new home. Chef Sean has continued to hone is already incredible craft of delighting the palette with an array of gorgeous, fresh, edible art. It’s so wonderful to see the team together under a newly renovated roof continuing to do what they do: experiment, create beautiful dishes and have fun! Can’t wait to go back already!

We ate here for my husband’s birthday. We selected their 5 course tasting menu. We didn’t know what we were going to be served. Each dish that we had was absolutely delicious and beautiful. I loved how relaxed we felt. The waiters allowed us to enjoy each dish and don’t come by every minute to ask how everything was. I appreciate that. I’d come back for sure.

Our first experience this year was when restaurant was still named Les Deux Singes.
We were pleasantly surprised that Ile Flottante is just as wonderful. There is a reason why this restaurant is rated number one in Montreal. If you are looking to have an incredible dining experience then Ile Flottante is a place to visit. We highly recommend getting a wine pairing with your meal as the wine choices complemented each entree perfectly.

Each course is a bit too large. The food was quite impressive in the first bite, but we were fatigued midway for most dishes, as the flavouring is quite strong.

The waitress casually left the clothes on the floor as she was hanging them one by one. You would not want your expensive jacket/scarf to sit on the ground of a busy restaurant I suppose.

The ambience was quite crowded and noisy. The background music was quite loud considering it as a restaurant for fine dining instead of a pub.

The quality-to-price ratio is quite high though.

Deux Singes was one of our favorite restaurants and its new incarnation, Ile Flottante, does not disappoint. It is not only beautiful but cozy. And in our opinion, the food is possibly the best in Montreal enhanced only by the beauty of the presentation. It is always an exceptionally pleasurable experience and kudos to the creative geniuses who make it so.

normally each meal here is outstanding from my past 4 visits, but this time the flavors were not complimentary, tastes weren't as complex, and overall kind of disappointing. The complimentary initial appetizer and the fish were good... When menus change a lot this can happen, hope next time is better!
