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.

We have been coming to the Bonaparte for years and it never fails to be a delightful experience. There are many great restaurants in Montreal, and plenty of trendy places with amazing food. The Bonaparte, however, provides an all-around wonderful experience, from excellent food this is a place where the waitstaff are professional, the maitre'd is attentive, and the customer is appreciated. (And when you go, don't miss the Lobster Bisque and the Mushroom Ravioli - they're wonderful.)

This is a great French restaurant. The dining rooms were beautiful. The noise level was higher than expected, but I preferred it. The dessert soufflés was my favorite dish. I had the Cavado soufflé. The gin cocktails we tried were both excellent. The waiter picked an excellent French wine for us. There wine menu was large in the French wines and even had a page of other reds. The bread is amazing! Every one was happy with all things ordered

Bonaparte was spectacular to say the least. I attended with a party of 6 in honor of my bother's birthday and we were very well taken care of by Katherine. We selected the tasting menu to make food selection much easier and all of the options were delicious. Each plate was something new and exciting. Lastly, I cannot speak enough on Katherine and the attention she gave us. Katherine was lively, very friendly, and thoroughly approachable. It felt as if it was a friend serving me rather than someone I had just met. Any chance I get - I will return for the delicious food and amazing serivice

The lamb shank was not good, my fiancée couldn’t even eat it. The steak I had was okay but nothing really note worthy. The service was good though and the staff were kind. Overall, I did not feel like we got what we paid for in terms of value and quality of food.

This classic French menu did not disappoint. The food was excellent from start to finish. Particularly notable was the great 1/2 litre of Cahor Malbec, which was amazing. The wait staff were very attentive and pleasant. My one regret was that we made the reservation months in advance when we booked the room in the hotel, but we obviously did not qualify for the best tables at the window?! I was not aware that these tables were the best until we actually walked into the restaurant. I would have thought that those actually staying in the hotel and those making a reservation far in advance, would be given some special consideration with seating.

Our Favourite Old Montreal Restaurant. My wife and I visited Bonaparte again for this year’s Valentine’s Day tasting menu. This romantic French restaurant is our favourite for many reasons. The old town setting with beautiful ambiance, a Napoleon flair and a warm fireplace. The amazing staff and service from everyone who were all delightful as they anticipated our every need. The food was cooked to perfection again and all delicious. My wife and I had the lobster bisque, smoked salmon, wild game terrine, seafood in puffed pastry, goat cheese in phyllo pastry, arctic char, lamb shank & chop, and selection of sweet desserts. They also have a wonderful wine list. We had the French Vin d’Alsace Riesling, my wife’s favourite. Another wonderful romantic evening to celebrate Valentine’s Day along with a red rose for my wife. We will be back again and again for sure. Thank you Bonaparte.
