Ikanos Ratings and Reviews
Outstanding dining experience! The restaurant has an intimate feel to it, and lovely decor. Our waiter was great, making recommendations for wine pairings and portion sizes. The menu has both mezes (tapas like, enough for 2+ on each plate), and full dinners. The pita with the three dips appetizer was superb, as were the dips themselves. I would highly recommend the grilled seafood platter to share. The grilled octopus was the best I have ever had (including in Greece), and the tomatoes in the Greek salad were amazing. We went twice during our stay in Montreal, the food was so good!
Excellent food and ambiance.
The service, however, was extremely irritating and completely unprofessional. Consistently trying to suggest menu items that we did not want. Felt like constant up-selling.
The final blow was the waiter asking if he could have a glass of our wine! Even after I refused he proceeded to insist that it was his duty as a sommelier and served himself. Absolutely mind blowing!
We loved the very flexible menu that allows you to get a taste of several dishes. The fish was excellent, grilled to perfection, grilled veggies, also excellent. The service was perfect, friendly and efficient.
The only reason I did't rate a perfect 5 stars is the desserts are just not up to par. The loukoumades pastries were chewy, bland and heavy, the cake had no flavour. So go nuts on the fish, forget dessert!
I arrived to the restaurant after making my reservation with a baby and 3 small children, I had to carry the stroller all the way up the stairs only to find out that they didn't have a table for us, the hostess told me that she was sorry but the restaurant was fully booked even though I have made a reservation several hours before, I recommend you to call before going, and they should definitely take their restaurant off OpenTable because obviously they don't use it at all.
No valet parking. Most restaurants in the area have valet. Real pain to park. Not worth the effort. Nothing outstanding about the restaurant. You have to figure $100. Pp with wine. You can go elsewhere and get as good if not better food. I've no interest in returning.
Enjoyed our dinner, excellent service, able to accommodate the Paleo diet. The only complaint I have is the portions were a bit small, left us wanting more, so we had dessert! The waiters did a great job explaining various items on the menu and were very attentive. Would go there again next time we visit Montreal.
First time to Ikanos my husband and I we both love it we are still talking about the food, wine n ambiance and also not forgetting Iur waiter Oliver he was super nice n knowledgeable andl alao Cedric , he was 'charmer', but makes you feel very comfortable and. Will occasionally come at your table to see if everything was a we expected!!! Highly recommend this restaurant🍷🍴
I was pleasantly surprised at how delicious all of our starters were. The squid, scallops and octopus were to die for. We shared the steak as a main. It was good but nothing to get excited about. Seafood is definitely their specialty and we will be returning for sure!
Très bon repas! Mezzos savoureux et repas principal agréable. Cependant, les portions sont petites.(surtout repas principal- morue et homard ). Nous avions Groupon et malgré cela très dispendieux (en ajoutant dessert et café, vin 95$). Il faut compter au moins 175$ pour 2 plus vin... sans Groupon. Pas certaine que je paierais ce montant...
Nous avons bien aimé notre expérience au Ikanos! Très bons plats. Mes préférés ont été les pétoncles poêlées et le magret de canard! À ne pas manquer. J'ai été toutefois un peu mélangée par le service, qui a commencé avec un serveur... puis terminé avec l'hôtesse qui a été fort chaleureuse et gentille. Mais sinon, rien de négatif à dire, nous avons passé une belle soirée :)
Anyone in love with octopus will greatly appreciate their grilled octopus. The greek salad was great, but the full plate was too big for two people at the end of the meal. The Ladera was "OMG I H-A-T-E veggies but can I have seconds please oh pretty please!!" kind of level of greatness. Overall, I was greatly pleased by this place as it is a very safe choice for open-minded people. I do advise coming around 5 PM if you want to enjoy a very quiet environment for most of the time of your meal.
I've dined here in the past about 3 times and always enjoyed my experience ... however this time ...
... on New Year's Eve was quite a deception. Service was rushed, awkwardly inattentive, ask to see the sommelier, never came. It was a fixed menu ... octopus was coriace ... the fish was delicious. Overall I will never go back. I felt like I was at one of those cheap super club, yet missed the party as we where at the first service.
Next time I would go to Grazziella just beside is a real fine dining experience. Grazziella are part of the silver spoon book.
What a great restaurant! We went for the first time last Friday and had a terrific meal. The menu was imaginative and fun. We tried the zucchini chips with a dill sauce, the ouzo-flamed cheese, the scallops with a bit of foie gras, and the quail. Everything was perfectly cooked and different than anywhere else. Our waiter was very helpful and pleasant. The atmosphere is upscale, modern in a wonderful old building next to Old Town Montreal. Definitely a keeper!
We reserved a table for 7 people. Their reservation system(s) was in transition, so they didn't have my reservation down when one of our fellow diners tried to add more people to the reservation. Food was innovatively Greek; notables included squid, octopus, and duck breast. Service was decent, but unremarkable. Night menu special available.
Menu MTL à table. On a été séduits par les entrées, ça s'est gâché par la suite... plats qui manquent de saveur (risotto calmars et porchetta d'agneau), temps entre les services excessivement long, serveuse sympathique mais inexpérimentée. Au final, on avait vraiment hâte de payer et partir! Look du resto super chouette, je suis certaine que cet endroit en vaut la peine, mais notre expérience n'a pas été convaincante!
Our experience at Ikanos was thoroughly outstanding! From various appetizers to the main course, finalized with the desert, every course was exquisitely prepared and superb. We took the waiter's recommendation and definitely were very pleased. This was our first time at Ikanos, and it's ambiance gave us the impression of a high class New York restaurant. We would recommend the tasting menu, which has the best assortment of seafood dishes, and is by far the best value that there is to offer. Definitely Ikanos is worth the money and a great experience. *
