    Bonaparte is definitely haute cuisine in Montreal. Excellent service and creative preparation of familiar French dishes. The foie gras toasts and mushrooms raviolis are to die for. I had the roasted duck breast with maple syrup and berries which was amazing... and just the right amount of food. Lastly we finished with two orders of cheese cake for three. I had a reunion with two friends from high school in Montreal I hadn't seen for thirty years, and Bonaparte did not disappoint.

    The restaurant was very welcoming. We had asked for bar seating but had changed our minds. A table for two by the window was perfect. Matthew and his helpers provided excellent service. We felt we had an elegant and sophisticated evening!

    Arrived and were promptly seated. Our server was very knowledgeable of both the menu and the extensive wine selection. The person I was with suddenly felt ill before our dinner was served and they boxed everything up for us quickly. The filet was outstanding even though it was eaten 30 minutes later.

    If you want the classic French fine dining experience this is it. We chose the tasting menu, 'Le Degustation', with accompanying wines. Our server, Pauline, was incredible, she ran after us when my wife forgot her phone and throughout the meal she helped us practice our French. Une soiree parfait.

    Take George's advice on the excellent, extensive wine list. Fabulous config of rabbit in phyllo, warm foie gras on gingerbread with crème brulée ( this works....not sweet this crème brulée (these were apps). Mains were an excellent melt in your mouth veal chop with a deeply flavoured fricasée of mushrooms, and I had a beautifully seasoned beef tartare, and French fries (cooked in duck fat is my guess?) with mayo. Fine desserts. Well spaced tables, beautiful room, superb kind and responsive staff. We will return. 5 stars!!

    For the service in general, it is quite good. The waitress are super friendly. The only thing is that the kitchen send us a wrong main course… they change it in 5 minutes. For the food, it is quite good. We highly recommend Breast of duck flavoured with maple syrup and wild berries . It is the best dish for the night. However, the filet mignon is a bit over cooked for medium rare, it is more like medium well, so it is a bit dry. The most disappointed thing is the dessert. The desserts are to be improved… In general, it is a good place to try French dining. The decorations and the ambiance is super nice.

    We truly enjoyed our dinner at Bonaparte. Food was delicious, we tried the tasting menu with the wine pairing. Tasting menu was amazing but we didn’t love the wine pairing choices, as the second wine pair was much too sweet. Staff was very attentive but not smothering allowed you time needed to enjoy each course. We highly recommend Bonaparte if you are visiting the Montreal area.

    My wife and I both ordered the six course meal with pairings. The ambiance, service, food, and pairings were all to perfection. However it was also the most expensive meal ever for us at $500CAN. Be prepared for the best, and to pay for it.

    The wait staff was outstanding! We had a mediocre lobster bisque - it wasn’t to our liking. A splash of cream would have gone a long way. The rabbit was brown in a puff pastry - it needed something more. The Foi Gras was delicious, but was lost on a crumbly something. The Foi Gras brûlée was divine.

    Truly one of my favourite restaurants to visit in Old Montreal. .impeccable attention to detail from start to finish. Service, food and ambiance is stellar. This staple is a must and was just as good the first time I went 15yrs ago. Looking forward to revel in this culinary experience again. 5+ star
