    I've returned to this restaurant many times over the years. Pauline served the table during my recent meal. She was an absolute delight. Friendly and very knowledgeable about the wines that paired with the tasting menu. I highly recommend this restaurant.

    Bonaparte provided a wonderful repast as it has a few times before. We have had the pleasure three other times back to 2017 and everything from the ambience to the service to the food itself remains wonderful. Our server George was attentive and helpful beyond measure. Bonaparte continues to be a place where we will return to when we visit (old) Montreal.

    The service and waiters were nice. The customers were very rude and stuffy. I had 2 small children they behaved excellent and of course some old lady came up to us an complained that this wasn’t a place for Children when there were adults having super loud conversations. I ate the duck it was very tough, not a nice juicy duck.
