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.
Enjoyable dinner - Table d’hote was a good value.
It was great
The food was very good, however our "dining experience" came up short. Our waiter had not entered our order properly and had failed to check why our main course had not arrived after 1.5 hours.
The maitre dee had to intervene. I would go back but be much more aware of the cadence around me.
We enjoyed a lovely meal in Old Montreal with attentive service.
Had a great meal there on Tuesday, August 13th. Maitr'd and our waiter, Gabriel were other very friendly and helpful. Chose the 6 course table d' hotel and all courses were excellent. Plan to go there again on our next trip to Montreal. Great experience.
Same great food and service for too many years to count. A true must visit when in Montreal!
Food was great, but service was only good
We will eat here again next time in Montreal
Great food and service! Members of our party had celiac and allergies to garlic, onions, and peppers, so we were concerned that finding a French dining experience in Montreal would be difficult, but we were happily proven wrong! Our server was very friendly and courteous which made it easy to ask about allergy concerns. The restaurant was a little hard to access, since you have to go through the hotel lobby, and we were seated close to the entrance so we could hear some of the hustle and bustle of hotel reception while eating. It was elegantly decorated and I appreciated the nods to Napoleon in the artwork.
The duck leg confit, maple glazed duck breast, and salmon were all prepared gluten free, tasted delicious, and were seasoned perfectly. Overall, a lovely experience and a great way to end the day in Old Montreal, be sure to snag a reservation in advance.
I enjoy dining at Bonaparte because of the ambience, the service, and the food. This time, in addition to the smoked salmon appetizer, I tried the steak tartar, both of which were absolutely delicious. I plan on working my way through the rest of the menu!
A wonderful evening: great food, attentive service, perfect for a romantic evening.
Everything about our experience was great. We did the tasting menu and each course was delicious. The service was fantastic, from the start. Originally they had us sitting in a section where they had just put a family with a baby. They offered us the choice to sit there or another location. We appreciated the consideration to offer us the option of dining somewhere quieter. We would go back again - great restaurant.
Great tasting menu. Good size portions and excellent dishes. Friendly service.
Wonderful experience. We enjoyed our meals and the company.
Good food, good service. Good quality for money
Quality traditional French menu, Shrimps and Scallop were particularly good.
Excellent French Food in an elegant setting. The tasting menu was divine.
Great restaurant and very consistent
I recommend it
The service was incredible very professional old school style I loved it. The pricing in comparison to what we ate was not on par. We found the food to be blend and lacking seasoning. Overall presentation of the food was outdated.
Excellent service, delicious food. Mushroom ravioli and venison stood out. Best meal we’ve had in Montreal. Highest recommendation.
Service food and ambiance were all excellent. It was busy but unlike most restaurants the noise level was quiet. The food was excellent but the mushroom ravioli was very noteworthy
Bonaparte is one of the best French fine dining restaurants in Montréal. The etiquette is as it should be and the service is outstanding. The Dover Sole and the Cerf are amazing! When in Montréal, this is a must visit!
Instead of trying to give us a nice table after knowing this was a special occasion they put us in a table near heavy traffic
Food was bland and tasteless. Ravioli was dry, onion soup tasted like water. Lobster bisque had no lobster in it. After expressing dissatisfaction with the soup and returning it they still charged us for it. Very disappointing. Expensive tasteless food.
Outstanding experience with superb cuisine.
Quite simply a superb dining experience. Bespoke service by staff and food is outstanding. Several menu options from a la carte to prix fixe choices.
Great food! Great souffles! Good Service! Must visit!
Food and service were excellent. Mushroom Ravioli delicious and Filet Mignon perfect.
Unbelievable dinner. The food was absolutely wonderful. All four of us had a meal to remember. I would come back here without question. One of the best meals I have had in a very long time.
We had bar seating. Bartender was very chatty but not multitasking. My meal suffered from lack of attention on behalf of bartender/server - the ravioli would have been delicious but sat under heat lamp too long, arrived dried and “crispy”. Drinks were good, Dover sole delicious.
The food was amazing! We travel the world and eat at all the top restaurants. Bonaparte will not disappoint.
The evening meal was as we had hoped - excellent! We had a friend from Toronto here as our guest, and wanted him to enjoy "true" Montreal ambience and food, and restaurant Bonaparte certainly delivered. Service was welcoming, polite, and efficient. Each of our choices of food was delicious (2 had the tasting menu), and our Toronto friend was impressed. Yes, a bit pricey, but certainly a good place to enjoy both ambience and quality! Highly recommended!
My sister and I were visiting Montréal for the first time and Bonaparte was one of the recommended restaurants by our hotel. It did not disappoint. I read numerous reviews and absolutely agree that the mushroom ravioli was delicious. I also enjoyed the savory cream brûlée treatment of the food gras and the dick was superb! The only disappointment was they did not have a wine tasting to go with the degustation.
Une gastronomie à essayer! Nous avons décidé de choisir le menu dégustation et nous avons adoré essayer différents plats à petites portions. Le service était impeccable!
Always a delicious meal with excellent service at Bonaparte, one of our favourite restaurants in Montreal.
We were treated like royalty!
Dinner was exceptional.
Excellent food. Beautiful restaurant. Nice variety on the menu. Good for any occasion
Excellent french restaurant. We had lunch. It was not crowded so we had great service. All dishes were well made, well plated and served on hot China plates so the food stayed hot till we finished them. Lunch is the way to go if you like great value for money at this fantastic place. Dinner time is usually busy.
Excellent all around. I always request one of the 2 window booths, this visit I got a table between the booths. It was fine, however one of my joys at Bonaparte is the window booth! I don’t know if it’s possible to include that in guest information.
We were guests at the Hotel Bonaparte for two days and rarely do we eat in a "hotel dining room". We are so glad that we did not follow our usual practice on this trip. The Bonaparte Restaurant provides an exceptional dining experience! The staff are welcoming and friendly and provided excellent, attentive service without being intrusive. The quality of the food was wonderful - all courses were prepared with great detail and each selection met or exceeded our expectations! We will definitely dine at the Bonaparte upon our next visit to Montreal.
Bonaparte is a tastefully and classically decorated space in the heart of Old Montreal. The ambiance and decor fit the area perfectly. The service is very attentive and friendly complete with genuine smiles! The set menu is an excellent value considering the high caliber of the food provided. The entrees were delicious and of good portion size. The deserts were good, but nothing particularly outstanding. Overall, Bonaparte is a perfect location for an intimate dinner with a loved one, or for celebrating a special occasion with friends. The level of service is top notch.
Bonaparte is a lovely old fashioned restaurant with delicious food & excellent service. Their Prix Fixe is such a bargain and the choices were terrific. I don't know why we have never visited Bonaparte before but we will definitely be going again.
