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.

    Nous étions 4 à table, et tous n'avaient que des superlatifs pour qualifier le repas : un accueil très chaleureux, une cuisine excellente, un service tout aussi excellent, une ambiance à la fois chic et simple. En trois mots : "vaut le voyage" !

    Absolutely blown away by the entire dinner experience! From the moment we were greeted, seated right away, and served throughout the evening by the incredibly professional and attentive staff, we felt like royalty. The ambiance is elegant, romantic, yet adaptable for groups. The tasting menu had everything we wanted to try. Each dish was better than the last, from taste to presentation they knocked it out of the park. If you get the tasting menu (and I recommend you do) be ready for a 2-3 hour meal, but it’s so worth it. The tasting menu was a great value for the amount and variety of perfectly crafted dishes you get. Some favorites were the Mushroom ravioli, lobster bisque, and the filet mignon. My wife and I loved our dinner at Bonaparte. It was sensational. In a vibrant culinary city such as Montreal, this one is underrated.

    The food was frankly, disappointing. Anytime you dine in a French Restuarant and need to add (a lot of) salt and pepper to a soup to improve the flavor, you know the rest of the meal isn’t going to be great. (The lobster bisque was bland. The carrot soup a little better, but still required salt.) And it wasn’t. I had the beef on the bone entree special. It was not good. Somewhat tough and not at all flavorful. More salt required…. My wife had the chicken, which was better but not great. Service was really good, as was the ambiance. A particularly nice bartender started the evening out well for us, but alas the food wasn’t that good. I wonder if perhaps there has been a change of chef? Last year we dined here, and the food was fantastic. Would not recommend.

    Simply a wonderful experience from entry reception to our table, attentive service by the one and only Matthieu and over the top food and wine. A must stop while in Montreal. Also, do stay at the Bonaparte hotel, a unique boutique stay with nice rooms and a wonderful staff. Cindy stands out for her graciousness and service at the front desk.

    If you are looking for a traditional French meal with amazing service and flavors that will make your taste buds dance, look no further than Bonaparte. From the moment that we sat down we were catered to with special care and attention. We let the staff know that we were celebrating a birthday, and they were sure to seat us in an area where we would not be disturbed. We indulged in the tasting menu and our waiter made sure that everything was exactly to our liking. The progression of each dish was superb. To top it off, they put a sparkler in our birthday girl’s dessert of choice at the conclusion of our meal, making the evening extra special. If you are willing to splurge and are looking for a real French experience, give Bonaparte a try. You will not be disappointed!
