Three delightfully decorated halls in the Empire style that dominated

    An excellent establishment full of courtesy, fine dining and unobtrusive checks by the staff on how matters were proceeding. Portions were generous and inventive. Wine pairing left to the staff to select and it was perfect. And value for money too.

    Everything was wonderful. Our servers were friendly and efficient, the food was wonderful and the service was very good. We were not at all rushed, but they made sure we were served in plenty of time to make our theater reservations. It was a truly elegant dinner experience in Montreal!

    Very slow service. I got tired of sitting at a cramped booth for two and a half hours. The food is very good. I ordered foie gras, beef with peppercorn sauce, and grand marnier soufflé among which the soufflé was the best. The beef was cooked right and was overall very good. The foie gras was of a small portion for the price, but was of good quality. Overall a good dining experience, despite the snail paced service. They need to employ more waiters.

    The food was so amazing, it was a cut above. Pricey but worthwhile. The service could have been a bit faster throughout, but was mostly painful waiting 30 minutes for the bill.

    Disappointed because we treated ourselves to the tasting menu with wine paring and we arrived at 845. By 1145 we still hadn’t been served our beef course and we couldn’t stay any longer and had to leave. A very expensive 3 small tastings! They graciously apologized and said our ticket had been lost by the kitchen and didn’t charge us for the wine pairing but it was too little too late! Saying that up until about 11pm we enjoyed it and would give it another try, just not on a busy night.

    Wonderful evening celebrating with family. Wonderful food, ambiance and service. The tartar brought me back to Lyon, the ambiance to the finest bistros in France, and the service impeccable. Thank you Carson for the wine recommendation, and for politely pointing to the price difference, which made me more than happy to accept. Lovely experience.

    I was a solo diner on a recent Sunday evening and the service was impeccable, with the host even giving me a table with a nice view of the street and the waitress attentive throughout my meal. The meal itself — lobster bisque, duck breast and chocolate mousse — was superb. Highly recommended.

    Bonaparte was recommended to us by our tour guide Pierre as a great place to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. We were not disappointed! We had a great experience from the moment until our departure. Charles and his team served us well. We chose the Degustation menu with each dish having just the right amount of food. None were overbearing and each was flavorful and pleasantly presented! Charles also acknowledged our anniversary with sparklers on our dessert plate. Dinner was great!! I will definitely visit Bonaparte on my next visit to Montreal!

    It’s been 3 years since we’ve been to Bonaparte and it didn’t disappoint. The waiter was wonderful, engaging and helpful with the menu. The ambiance was almost festive and perhaps louder than usual, but welcome after a 3-year absence. And, of course, the food was delicious!! It was a wonderful evening!!
