It was elegant but not pretentious. Good food. Nice ambience. Not too quiet or too loud. The waiter was impeccable. I would go back!

We often go to Bonaparte before the plays at Centaur Theatre where we have been subscribers for nearly 40 years. The restaurant rarely disappoints. The Theatre menu is good value, the wait staff is very professional and the food is uniformly excellent. The welcome is particularly friendly, and the ambience lovely, attractive and not noisy like many other restaurants.

Came here with a few friends and we all ordered the tasting menu. There were 7 courses and they were all very delicious. The pricing was fair as well so there was great value.

My husband and I enjoyed the specials, with both enjoying the soup (always my measure of a good chef) and the steak with me having duck confit and both having chocolate mousse. Service was excellent and food very good. A conservative menu, without tons of creativity, but certainly excellent.

Lovely evening at Bonaparte. A relatively low-key New Year’s Eve dinner, with excellent service. Lovely variety of options as part of the set menu for NYE.

Visited for NYE. Fantastic food (prix fixe), service, and ambiance. Set the bar for the best restaurant experience. Perhaps not the very best food ever, but combined with service and surroundings, an unforgettable experience.

Bonaparte was superb! We celebrated our daughter’s birthday and the staff made us feel very welcome when we arrived. We found great variety with their prix fixe menu. Each course had great flavors and exquisitely prepared. It was our most memorable dining experience during our visit to Montreal. Merci à tous chez Restaurant Bonaparte!

We’ve dined all over the world and have a high bar for both food and service. Bonaparte certainly met all of our expectations and the service was exceptional and delightful. The food was beautifully prepared and classically French in execution. We enjoyed the tasting menu and their great selection of wines by the glass and extensive wine list. They have a lovely bar area for pre-dining cocktails and I highly recommend the Cosmopolitan. This was one of our best dining experiences in Montréal and I would highly recommend this restaurant and would happily dine here again.

Bonaparte has never disappointed me. We have been coming to this place for more than 10 years and we love it. It’s very romantic and the food is excellent. Would not hesitate to come back at any time in my next visit to Montreal. It was for my birthday this time and they didn’t disappoint me. Thank you for making it special.
