Ikanos Ratings and Reviews
Great mezzes, great wine
The quality of the food was excellent and beautifully presented. We didn't go with the lunch set but decided to go mezze style, and was not disappointed. The wine selection was very nice, and the house wine was great, as was the service. Definitely an experience to repeat.
Servers seemed quite inexperienced. Had a teenager serving flambe for the first time come a little close to my eyebrows for comfort. Waitress suggested a tasting menu with entrees that we had already had. Although we should have noticed, I guess, they could have warned us of this. The quality of the food was quite good, but very expensive.
More misses than hits
I wish the food had matched the decor of this restaurant. Really beautiful design!
First off, I would like to thank the house for offering us a drink (which was very good btw, similar to a Muscadet we were told) at the end of our meal. Apparently there was some miscommunication about which server would help us and that's why it took a bit of time to get to our table. Funny enough, we hadn't even noticed as we were chitchatting away.
On to the food. We were 4 people and it was recommended that we order 10-12 small plates. We ordered 8 and ended up only eating 6. (More on that later) Thank goodness we didn't order as many as recommended, it would have been way too much.
We ordered grilled shrimp -excellent-, grilled vegetables -that were actually smoked, not at all what we were expecting, was alright-, Greek salad -excellent-, scallops -excellent-, fried zucchini chips-too much batter and hard-,crab salad-very disappointing because in fact it was served as crab cakes that didn't taste like much. The accompaniment salad was excellent however. As a matter of fact, they've changed the name of this dish on their menu to crab croquettes which is more appropriate -.
We also ordered, the grilled octopus and saganaki but sadly we never received them. Once we were done eating, I remembered the two dishes and inquired about them. We were told that it had been done on purpose because there wasn't any room left on the table. Happy we were able to cancel those. It's a good thing though because we were not hungry at all for more.
Actually, who needs to be hungry for loukoumades? I love these! Unfortunately, these were a huge letdown. They were very hard! You couldn't even put your fork through one. The table next to us had the same issue. I will say however that the honey pannacotta was absolutely delicious!
Would I go back, no. Too many misses. Should you? The menu was interesting and the ambiance was very nice.
When you eat in this restaurant, money is not an object. Food is very refine and well presented, service is attentive and professional. When it comes to choose your plate , I would recommend to lean more towards fish and seafood rather than meat. I think they are more talent in handling
Horrible service overshadowed good food
Night started off well and the food was mostly great .
My main issue is that when you order at 7:30 and leave at almost 10:30 after asking the waiting staff for the rest of your meal to go,then there's a major problem somewhere!
I get it that its busy but what could of been a potential fantastic meal is instead a restaurant I will avoid like the pleg and strongly dissuade to anyone I know.
Zorba couldn't afford it
OK, Ikanos has great food. The chef is innovative and turns out tasty little dishes (mezzos), most big enough to share. The service is attentive and the waiter was happy to explain the menu and even determine, by asking the chef, the more mysterious ingredients of one of the dishes (shaved fennel bulb no less). It obviously appeals to more well-heeled business types in the area and the students who can afford it, but it is quite expensive for Greek food. More than just gyros and moussaka, it offers a series of fresh seafood dishes with Greek and Mediterranean seasonings in new ways. So go for the experience. Go for the great, tasty little tapas-like plates. But go with your wallet. You will need it.
Always a treat!
Had the evening specials. Started with a razor clam appetizer and wrapped it up with a very generous crab trilogy platter featuring three different types. Dinner was polished off with an amazing 2009 Hazidakis Assertico white wine. Ikanos is the only cellar in the city to have such an amazing bottle on-hand (not to mention all of the other choices). The Welcome was kind and warm. Lovely evening! Thank you!
Good, but not great.
The food was good, but not outstanding. The scallop ceviche and saganaki were quite memorable. The lamb dish lacked seasoning and the feta mashed potatoes lacked any discernible feta flavour. The service left something to be desired for the price point. The waiter seemed to be more attentive to other tables that were ordering higher price point items. When we ordered wine by the glass he simply poured the wine and left. When the table next to us ordered wine by the glass he poured a sample for them to try to make sure they both liked it first. He actually reached from behind my wife over her shoulder to give me the bill from the bar, as opposed to walking around the booth to hand it to me at our table. I wouldn't rush back, but would go if another couple suggested it.
Delightful dinner with friends
This was my second visit at Ikanos and I was not disappointed. The food was delicious and the tapas style menu made it easy to share the different dishes and taste a little of everything. The Saganaki was tasty and the duck was divine. Trendy yet relaxed atmosphere, my group practically closed the restaurant.
Excellent food........a gem in Montreal
All the dishes are beautiful. It offers a "Tappas" bar selection of Greek food. I had the scallops and the taste was wonderful. My friend had the shrimp, & he raved about that dish too. We both had the calamari. Not rubbery or lacking in taste. Dessert of nougat was delectable. I'd highly recommend this restaurant. Am going back again tonight!
Ikanos has such great potential!
We had very high hopes for the beautiful and well-located restaurant. When a restaurant is that expensive, with the most expensive wines (and good ones!), the food better be excellent for every dish. The Greek salad, while a bit over-dressed, was excellent as was the gilled calamari and the scallops. However, we had gravels and blinis and this was not good. The salmon did not taste fresh and the blinis were dry. We had another fish dish with some kind of rolled taco-like thing and that too was very dry and tasteless. This is most unfortunate as this restaurant has great potential. However, we will not return as it's too pricey for another experiment.
Weird menu and way way overpriced
We were surprised to see so many mezzes but very little full courses. The server had to explain to is, and every table, that it is their concept is to bet on the tapas style
Menu. Only 1 steak, only 1 fish (they were out of the second one), and a choice of grilled octopus or calmar by the weight. Rest are small portion of overpriced appetizers. Appetizers are meant to be shared ... A small Bol of calmar or two shrimps?
We were told the steak and the fish were for 2 people so we're finding the price OK. But 68$ for a steak that would not feed two and 70$ (about I don't rember the exact prices) for a sea bass (I imagined it massive if it was to feed two) was too expensive for a steak full of nerve and a simple small fish.
Wine list start at a steep price for, in some cases, average Greek wines.
Some genuine attempt at originality in the presentation and good tasty food overall despite a stingy steak. But overpriced small portions and lack of choice. Should go back to more traditional Greek to complement some of those more refined mezzedes.
Wow! What a wonderful discovery. We dec ...
What a wonderful discovery. We decided at the last minute to go out to dinner with another couple on a Friday night. We chose Ikanos based on the recommendation of a colleague. I have had the privilege of eating at most of the best restaurants in Montreal and I have to rank this amongst my top 3 with Maison Boulud and Europea. We had the discovery menu which I highly recommend.
Went for lunch with a group of colleagues. The service was slow (it took over an hour, which is unacceptable given we are in a downtown business hub).
Tthe food tasted good, but the quantity was way too small! I had to grab a sandwich after the meal, as I was still hungry! Lunch menu is not Worth the price. You can get better somewhere else.
Service was not what I expected... not very attentive. Will not go back.
I didn't hear great things about this restaurant but decided to try it myself. I was very disappointed. The food was tasteless and poorly presented. The service was ok but no more. I had the lamb and although I love lamb, their version of compressed lamb tastes like spam.
Restaurant recommandé par Marie-Claude Lortie et nous sommes très heureux de s'y être arrêtés pour le lunch. Le service était professionnel tout en étant empreint de gentillesse et d'humour.
le poisson était cuit à la perfection et l'entrée était toute simple mais absolument savoureuse; le mariage des ingrédients offrait une réelle surprise en bouche. Nous y retournerons le soir afin de goûter à la pieuvre et aux fruits de mer.
Amazing Greek Restaurant
Had an early dinner with a friend on a Friday. Good that we booked an early dinner as they got busier as the evening went on. I always rely on the waiter to make recommendations and he did not disappoint us. He recommended small plates to share and I can not say enough about the food. We had fresh oysters to start - they were wonderful; but not to be outdone were the scallops. I can not say enough about that dish. We may have ended up with 5 small plates to share and we left very, very satisfied. I will surely be back to Ikanos the next time am in Montreal.
