It was really packed so we reserved bar seating, were able to have good dinner as well. While waiting for our food, I loved the experience at the bar, we watched the Bartender artfully created the cocktails. Saw how the Sommelier tasted the wine to ensure that it is good before serving. Lobster bisque is recommended, ordered the scallops, which was great ( cooked just right) but personally needed some more kick to it. The nice warm towel added to the experience ! As we were at the bar, noise was expected to be more than when you’re at the table. You need to make a reservation!

We did have the tasting menu with wine pairing. What an amazing experience that was. The food was delicious and the wine pairing couldn’t have been better.

On top of the excellent food, our server was over the top. Extremely knowledgeable about the food and wine. She is truly an asset to the restaurant. I wish I would have her name because when we come back, I would only want to have her serve us. Hands down, best server ever!!!

Server was outstanding. We had the tasting menu with the wine pairing. It was very good but probably price was slightly high for what you got. All food was good and small portions in keeping with the theme. I just think they could have done it at about 75% of the price.

Had the Montreal a la Table and it was all delicious. Didn't take any photos as was enjoying meal and company so much. Waiter made great wine recommendation and all staff were wonderful. It was our anniversary and they put sparklers on our dessert. Highly recommend for a special celebration

One of my favorite meals in Montreal - great wine pairings and a tasting menu that built up over 5 courses and ended with some well thought-out dishes that were both classic French and were very considerate of the ingredients.

The macaron I had in my dessert course was my ideal, rivaling some of my favorites from around the world.

Excellent in every way, save for a 50 minute wait for our first course😳. I assume this is because of the brutal staff shortage in the hospitality industry, combined with the first night of an excellent value table d’hote offer. All was forgiven as the courses arrived.

WE had an excellent experience at Bonaparte. The seating was prompt and efficient. Our table was quiet and well located. The menu is extensive for this Covid era and the wine list was particularly good. We both enjoyed seafood cooked just right with very tasty sides. We would go again.

Halfway through our meal the waitstaff decided to reset the table to a four top. It was like looking at a three ring circus. It was then discovered that the part was only two people so the removed a table and chairs they brought in.

This is our second time at Bonaparte and was same wonderful experience as before. We did the wine pairing and our waiter was very knowledgeable about each wine and how it went with the dishes. Service is impeccable and all courses were delicious. We stretched out our dinner for 3 hours so truly an experience in Old Montreal. We will return for our next special occasion.
