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.

Excellent service from the woman who served us: she greeted me warmly when I arrived late (!) and realized I would need a second Prosecco! She also timed when we were ready for another course. We were out in 1.5 hours - perfect for going next door to the theatre.

Food was superb (although portions could be a bit bigger), tasty and varied. Service impeccable, right down to the coat check and greeting upon arrival. Spot-on.
If I had to complain about something, it was the fact that, when my wife and I mentioned that we were not going to be having wine that evening, there was a noticeable look of disappointment on the waiter's face. But in the grand scheme of things, hardly worth mentioning.
We will return.

I have been going to Bonaparte since 1999 after the executive chef of the New England Culinary Institute recommended it to me. It never fails to provide excellent food with the most wonderful ambiance. The service is impeccable.

We regularly go to Bonaparte but this time took some friends from out of town. We were pretty confident we would have a good experience and we did: They loved the whole experience, especially the 6-course tasting menu. It was a very successful evening by all standards.

I found that the soup was exquisite, the chocolate mousse was delicious and my daughter's scallops were good. However, my porc tenderloins were tasteless. I thought that a bit of fine herbs would have enhanced the taste greatly.

At first I was not sure as I had bad experience in the past with tasting menus. Wow was i surprised. We left full and got to try all the signature dishes for one low price. The pest place in Montreal for french Cuisine. It really was amazing with friendly staff. This was the best find on my trip. I would really eat here again. I wish they had a place this nice in New York City!

Le serveur attitré à notre table avait l’air de ne pas être content d’être là.
Le 4 janvier 18.30.
Mais l’accueil à la réception et au service des plats était très cordial.
Un grand merci pour avoir eu la table demandée

Bonaparte is a charming French restaurant in the heart of Montreal. While the service was a bit slow, the food was fabulous!
The ambiance is quintessential French. We loved it!

We are NYC foodies so we have visited tons of restaurants from the highest rated to the smallest mom and pop eatery. Everything at Bonaparte was 5 star. Seemed to also be a ‘local’ place which added to the authenticity. Fantastic food and service. It was TOP notch. I didn’t want to write a review because then it might get too crowded with tourists!

Great dinner at Bonapart. We both took the Table D'hote and was delicious and great value at $44 per person for a starter, main, dessert and coffee. Service was great and we appreciated the recommendations for food and wine. We had not been there for many years but will return soon for sure.

Le service était impeccable et l’ambiance chaleureuse et chic. Nous avons choisi le menu dégustation. La nourriture était très bonne mais je ne peux pas la qualifier d’exceptionnelle. Je dois dire par contre que j’ai dansé de bonheur sur ma chaise en mangeant les raviolis aux champignons.

The service was excellent, all servers. We had 2 breakfasts and dinner as well, all were excellent.
We requested a good table and got a fabulous table in the window, great experience. We had eaten vegan the night before at LOV McGill so this was our carnivore hit.

Our server was George and he was amazing-he attended to our every need. My husband had the lobster bisque and I had the onion soup; both were amazing. We had the sole with pine nuts and the filet mignonette. The filet was was perfectly cooked, tender and flavorful. We had a Grand Mariner soufflé that was wonderful! Would highly recommend and will visit again when in Montreal.

We always enjoy dinner at Bonaparte, especially prior to our theater show at the Centaur. They have an excellent theater menu as well as their table d’hôte and al a carte selections. We’ve been going there for many years and they don’t disappoint. Service is very professional& attentive. Not to mention a very good wine list.

We will continue to dine there, btw, they also have a very good lunch menu. We love our neighborhood gem!
