Oui j'ai aimé l'expérience mais sans plus.Je m'attendais à un Waou.Le repas n'était pas divin mais bon à tres bon dependamment des plats (moins aimé le quinoa au chevre. Le ricotta de chevre est peu gouteux)..
Le service est aussi un peu speed.
Nous avons passé tout de même une belle soirée dans l'ensemble.
Pour le vin au verre , peu de choix et le vin nature est présenté comme un vin bizarre par la serveuse.Pas très avenant comme présentation...Lorsqu'elle me l'a fait gouter, j'ai beaucoup aimé.Il faut aider les clients peu habitués à ce genre de vin à l'aborder avec des explications.Il est loin d'être bizarre mais peut être différent de ce qu'on a l'habitude de boire et certainement pas au goût de tous.

Les assiettes sont visuellement parfaites et très stimulantes pour les yeux, mais au niveau du goût, ça manque un peu de relief. Tout est un peu trop homogène au niveau des saveurs. Sauf pour le dessert, vraiment excellent. (Je suis très exigente...) Autrement, le service est excellent et l'ambiance générale très satisfaisante. Une belle expérience gastronomique.

All good from the moment you walk in to when you say goodbye. Île Flottante operates with fixed menus of 3, 5 or 7 courses. We opted for the 3-course menu. Starting with a basket of warm crusty bread followed by complimentary amuse-gueules which consisted of a trio of bursts of flavors, we were treated to a cuisine that is sophisticated without being pretentious, layered flavours without being too complicated. This was an evening of persistent wintry chills but the bowl of summer that was the last course made us forget, if only for a few minutes, what was waiting for us outside the door. We opted for the wine pairing, a good decision to help us discover vintages we might not know. All of this served and explained by a very attentive staff. A memorable meal!

Seul minuscule bémol, service un peu trop rapide à mon goût, pas assez de temps entre les services pour terminer mon vin tranquillement.
L'accord mets et vins vaut vraiment la peine!

The experience was great and specific to a moment. We found that the value didn't entirely match with the complexity of the plates. However, cuisine was honest and that is never a bad thing. I will certainly recommend the restaurant to my circle of friends that support a more vegetarian based meal with flair.

Fixed menu - but choice of 3, 5 or 7 services. All dishes are delicious and well presented. Services are efficient with a lot of attention to details. Interesting crowd and cozy atmosphere - with Montreal 67 expo theme on the wall.

Thumb-up experience for the night. Highly recommend this place.

Je cuisine personnellement beaucoup alors lorsque je vais au restaurant et que je constate qu'après 200$, je peux faire mieux à la maison, j'en sors évidemment fort déçue. L'Île flottante nous a fait vivre une expérience qui a non seulement répondu à nos attentes à cet égard mais les a dépassé avec tous ces petits à côtés: originalité dans l'assiette sans être to much (parfois les chefs veulent trop, il y a une surcharge de saveurs dans leur proposition, ça part dans toutes les directions, découverte culinaire, fraîcheur, flexibilité (j'ai une intolérance au lactose et on s'est montré sensible et accommodant).

We enjoyed Saturday night dinner on Feb 16th...for Valentines's day. Ile flottante is our favourite restaurant! We love the ambience and the service! But the food is awesome! It is absolutely delicious and so creative. Everytime we eat here our expectations are surpassed! All the ingredients are fresh. The plates are colourful and creative in appearance and in taste. This restaurant is definitely one of the top restaurants in Montreal! We recommend it highly! Reservations are definitely required.

Discovery of the year! Sat at the bar, super cozy and got to chat with the friendly staff a bit. All the dishes were aesthetically pleasing and equally delicious. Took the 5-course meal with the wine pairing (loved the vin nature pairing) and an extra dessert because we had FOMO. Great value for money, I will be going again!

Premièrement, j’y retourne car la cuisine est créative et succulente.

Par contre, cela manque de rodage. Trop de serveuses s’occupent des mêmes tables donc ne sont pas au courant de ce qui s’est déjà dit ou demandée. Avoir un service attentionné et présent est tjrs bon mais trop est comme pas assez. Servir de l’eau continuellement en passant devant le visage du client n’est pas top. Service long même si on mentionne que nous avons un temps limité.

Donc conclusion, on y retourne car un veau potentiel mais une refonte du service est à refaire.

Belle ambiance même si c'était un peu bruyant pour la première moitié de la soirée. Le service était impeccable avec des explications claires et succinctes de chacun des plats. La nourriture nous faisait voyager (j'ai enfin compris pour on appelle ça un amuse-gueule!) et les accords mets-vins étaient tout à fait sublimes. Bref, on planifie déjà notre prochaine sortie.

We were unexpectedly stranded in Montréal overnight in the midst of a series of winter storms, and decided to make lemons out of lemonade by booking a table at Ile Flottante. It almost made up for the 24-hour delay in our travel plans! We had the seven-course tasting menu and everything was simply wonderful -- one of the best meals I've had in a long time! Really inventive, gorgeously plated, amazing food with perfectly balanced tastes and textures. They do have a wine pairing, but it sounded a bit too eclectic/quirky for our taste, so we ordered a nice bottle of Côtes du Rhône.

I took my girlfriend here for her birthday and had the most wonderful time. The the different options for the tasting menu allow for occasion based flexibility as the three course is very reasonably priced for the quality of food. We had the five course with the wine pairing which is fairly expensive for two people working entry level jobs but none of that money is wasted as the staff is well informed on their products, from wine to the food. They have extremely prompt service and a welcoming atmosphere.

I have recommended this restaurant to all of my friends as it is vegetarian/vegan friendly, has reasonably priced options for a monthly date night, and when you want to indulge in luxury, they can deliver in spades.
