Three delightfully decorated halls in the Empire style that dominated
the Napoleonic era give the restaurant the intimate character
that guests treasure. An exquisite cuisine, prepared with French savoir-faire
and showcasing the finest fresh regional products.

We thoroughly enjoyed the taster menu. In fact, more than a taster, the courses were almost full sized, so we felt that it was good value for money. The service was friendly and respectful. A great experience!

Although our experience was wonderful, the service was even more outstanding. Our waitress (I think her name was Catherine) was amazing, truly friendly and went out of her way to make our meal delightful.

Very good food and wonderful staff. Our table was an odd little spot near where they cut the bread but that was a minor detail compared to the overall experience.

Delightful restaurant. Friendly staff. A wee bit slow - but not out of the ordinary pace. Starters were outstanding. Mains - just good. Not great. Meaning - the lamb rack sauce had just a faint flavor - and the Dover sole was kind of plain.

Excelente lugar! Gran servicio, deliciosa comida (clásicos franceses) aunque el bisque de langosta y la sopa de cebolla dejaron un poco a desear (faltaba sal, faltaba queso a la sopa de cebolla). Ubicación privilegiada. Una gran dirección para una cena romántica!

Bonaparte is a long standing great restaurant for classic French cuisine. Guaranteed good food and ambience. We had he tasting menu which was excellent and allowed you to try a variety of excellent dishes. You are in old Montreal which is nice to stroll through after wards. Highly recommend.

It was a lovely evening. Service was attentive and professional. Boreal martinis were great. We did the fixed price menu which was great value. The venison terrine was delicious. I had the haddock in a wonderful wine butter sauce. My husband had the Hanger steak which he raved about. Desserts of lime/lemon pie and caramel flan were also great. The ability to order a 1/2 bottle wine was perfect. A wonderful non roadhouse, non pub evening. We loved it!

My fiancé and I came here to celebrate our anniversary and our engagement. We did the tasting menu and it was amazing, multi-note, and exciting without being overwhelming. Even though he is a bit picky, he enjoyed all his dishes. The service was amazing and attentive but not overbearing. It was a great experience!

Everything was wonderful . We had a seat in front of the fireplace and everything from the wine we selected to the food was excellent . My husband had the French onion soup and said it was the best he ever had. I had an appetizer of goat cheese and phyllo dough that was amazing . My steak was delicious with a sauce that was lick the plate good . My husband’s salmon was moist and tender. We finished our meals with two soufflés- gran marnier and chocolate - truly amazing meal. I would go back to Montréal just to come back here !

This place is a must if you are going to celebrate a special occasion. The service was exceptional and waitstaff was very knowledgeable and attentive. They didn’t rush you. As for the food, it is probably one of the best meal we’ve had. Three out of four of us ordered the lobster stew. I initially thought it was too small of a portion but when I started eating, I realized that they gave you the whole lobster without the shell. I had to give 1/2 of the lobster tail to my son. We plan to come back in the not so distant future to Montreal.
