Bonaparte is a beautiful fine dining restaurant that has a exquisite atmosphere for the avid romantic inside us all. This restaurant offers a delectable culinary offering for even the choosiest of connoisseurs. Loved our waiter and chef’s presentation was impeccable. Because of the COVID issue the restaurant was not that busy, but we had made reservations and had a quaint location near the fireplace. The restaurant had just changed over their background music and was very nice to listen to. In fact the music was so pleasant and the restaurant wasn’t that busy that my wife and I actually got to slow dance. It was very enchanting.

Magnifique endroit, nourriture excellente, excellent service, le seul bémol pour moi a été la carte des vins. non pas que les choix sont limités mais si on a pas envie de faire une découverte, avoir des trucs connu ça aurait été bien dans mon cas

Easy to find and park. Maître d’Hotel and servers nip and tuck. Intimate, welcoming, warm and friendly. Menu had good balance and variety in both Table d’Hote and a la Carte. Food hit my “4 Ps”: exceptionally well prepared, portioned and presented with a price point that didn’t leave a bitter taste in my wallet. A very pleasant and satisfying evening.

We have eaten at Bonaparte a few times and have been very happy with everything. The waiters were VERY friendly and very accommodating during our visit. The wait time in between courses was a little long, but we've noticed that in Montreal, they don't rush to get you out. We weren't in a hurry at all, so it was okay. Some may not agree.
We will definitely be back on our nest trip north.

Special anniversary dinner was a complete success thanks to the amazing food, service and ambiance of the Bonaparte. We took the menu dégustation which allows for a sampling of the house signature dishes (6 courses). A feast for the eyes and palate. Service was attentive yet unobtrusive. The noise level was low which allowed for wonderful conversation. I highly recommend.

Bonaparte is the perfect restaurant for any special occasion. We had our anniversary dinner there and they took such good care of us from the moment we arrived. The service was excellent and everyone who came to our table congratulated us. We had the tasting menu and found the food to be sublime. The seafood was divine and the lamb was just gorgeous. They made us feel as if they were just waiting for us to make their day. Well, they made our day extra special and we can’t wait to return. Thank you, Bonaparte for such a memorable evening!

We took the Valentine`s Day menu and it was great all around. The staff was friendly as usual and the bartender knows his craft and shows it well. This is actually the only restaurant we enjoy having a drink at the bar before going our meal because nothing is watered down and the mix are pretty original.

The 6 course dinner was interesting. The wait time before the meat plates was WAY TOO LONG. The host apologized , but the time was too long. The meat plates were delicious, but heavily over shadowed by the long wait.
On another note, as a gay couple, we appreciated being offered a rose as we left. That was a true class act of inclusion!

I enjoyed my dinner from beginning to end. It started with a nicely seasoned lobster bisque, followed by a delicious salmon tartare with smoked salmon, a scrumptious seafood crepe, and a spectacularly tender filet. The atmosphere was warm and cordial, and the service was attentive, prompt, and gracious. I'll be back!
