Bonaparte Ratings and Reviews
While the food was respectable, we were not wowed by the experience. We visited
Montreal on vacation and were hoping for a memorable meal at a top of the line restaurant. No complaints but does not stand out as one of our memorable meals. Perhaps the establishment is currently resting on its laurels.
Great food,wonderful service and the atmosphere was perfect!
Superbe resto, service exceptionnelle et nourriture fraiche et délicieuse.
A great experience for French cuisine lovers. The best service and a very classy ambiance for any special occasion. 5 starts.
Tous les mets du menu 4 services étaient absolument délicieux ! Présentation des plats, saveur et fraîcheur étaient au rendez-vous. La soirée a débuté par un accueil des plus chaleureux et s'est enchaînée par un service hors du commun ! Nous avons passé une bien agréable soirée et recommandons grandement Bonaparte à tous ceux et celles qui recherchent l'excellence en gastronomie !
We enjoyed excellent, very pleasant service. The food was very good - we were there on restaurant week and had the prix fixe menu. My lamb was wonderful.
Bonaparte used to be my favorite French restaurant , however, the most recent visit with the Visitez Montreal spécial menu , i was very disappointed with the quality of the food. We ordered duck breast and seafood pasta as the main dishes, you can’t choose how the duck cook, they only serve with medium, it seemed it had been prepared early in advance because of the busy special menu. The pasta was too soft and the quality of the seafood were so bad. I believed that because of the busy special menu they have to prepare stuffs early in advance and use cheaper quality ingredients. Very disappointed, it ruined its reputations
Have dined many times over the years when I’m in town. This was a mediocre meal compared to what I’ve had in the past. It was the winterlishious menu(Toronto lingo). Maybe just an off night.
Great as always, have not ever been dissapointed! The food is excellent, the service is great, the decor is elegant and nice, not loud.
We were visiting Montreal from Chicago and very excited to try French food there. We were really disappointed overall. We didn't get to order a drink for 25 minutes, and didn't get a drink until we had been there for 45 minutes. We ordered the tasting menu. The salad was really good, the lobster bisque was very average. My girlfriend ordered the lamb and found the of the meat to be inedible. My fillet was very under-cooked and under-seasoned. The apple souffle and old fashioned's were delightful. Overall, we didn't get what we were looking for, for that kind of money.
Great meal..... we love this place. Excellent food and service in Old Montreal.
Thanks for a great night!
Beau restaurant, bel accueil et bon service. Le repas était bon mais pas exceptionnel, présentation correcte.
Avons été pour la première fois dans ce resto dans le cadre de Montréal à table. Excellent service et plat de première qualité. Stationnement tous près.
Excellent restaurant. Une découverte à Montréal. Réellement à essayer.
We loved everything about our experience at Bonaparte’s. The food, service, and ambiance totally lived up to our expectations.
Classy ambience, delicious food, attentive staff, excellent wine. Dining at Bonaparte was a great experience and with restaurant week happening, we got a great prix fixe deal. The mushroom raviolis are a must try. The portions are generous and tasty. Wonderful experience!
Delicious. The mushroom ravioli and the vanilla shrimp scallop dish is simply amazing!!!
Ambiance: old (no offense, average age 60+)
Food was good, service was good but wine suggestions were quite bad. Not worth the price, but we went during Montréal à Table so the menu at 41$ was fair.
Would not go back.
une de mes meilleures experiences culinaires. tout était parfait de A à Z. La bouffe est excellente et le service incroyable. je reviendrai definitivement.
Lovely service, excellent food! We had the four course tasting menu, which had a good selection of options. Nice wine list as well. Overall it was an excellent choice for our impromptu date night in Montreal.
Quoiqu'il y avait plusieurs places disponibles tout au long de notre présence nous avons été installés dans une partie restreinte et à l'arrière du resto plutôt que dans la grande salle vitrée. Sinon, le service était très bien ainsi que le repas.
This restaurant excels in ambiance, service, and cuisine. Wine list is replete with French wines at reasonable price. Service is impeccable. The bar boasts craft cocktails and knowledgeable bartenders. The ambiance and environs remind me of Paris. The cuisine is creatively designed variations of traditional dishes. The staff is Anglophone friendly.
Delicious food, upscale atmosphere, attentive servers.
Excellent meal and great service
Excellent restaurant, great food, excellent service and good ambiance. Really nice place to do.
Loved this place! Best dinner I had out in 10 years! Food was amazing, even the salad was excellent (and this from a salad agnostic). Loved the Duck and my wife loved her lamb. Recommend it to anyone. Don't miss it.
Restaurant accueillant, un décor riche, une cuisine raffinée et un service poli. À recommander vivement.
If you want the best meal in Montreal - come here for a night. Strap in for a 3 hour bonanza of great service and fantastic food. Make sure you get the tasting menu - it is worth the money!
Amazing dining, fantastic ambience, exceptional service.
The restaurant was very nice. Our waiter, Marc, was attentive and helpful but not intrusive. The food was very good, especially the Mushroom Ravioli with Sage sauce! The amount of each service was more than expected. No one left hungry. The only item not up to par was the dessert for 3 of our group. The cheesecake lacked taste and was " spongy" in texture. One of our group took the Lime Tart dessert and was quite happy with it. All in all, a very pleasant experience and we all agreed we would all return. However, I would suggest the cheesecake recipe be improved/ changed for a more delicious ending to a very good meal.
We eat here often and are never disappointed; the food is delicious and the service is ,friendly without being intrusive. We send our friends and acquaintices and they always thank us afterwards.
Fantastic food. It was beyond perfection. Service was amazing. Always prompt. Never had to ask for anything- staff was at your beck and call.
The experience was just PERFECT and the staff made us feel right at home. Attentive, accommodating and friendly!
This is a gem in Old Montreal. A must!
And the Martini was perfect
Excellent fare and service made for a perfect anniversary date
We went for dinner in our last night in Montreal. The food was fantastic and the service was phenomenal. I would highly recommend that if your in Montreal you eat here. You will not be disappointed!!!
My wife and I had a lovely dinner with some of the most delicious authentic French Canadian food. We would absolutely highly recommend this restaurant.
Very good place. Tasteful food . Excellent location
Amazing restaurant! Katherine was very Friendly and helpful! We didn’t know a word of French and she helped us with every step!
The food was delicious and cooked to order. The wait staff are very attentive.
Uninspired and mediocre food that’s overpriced. Fortunately have good service.
