    It was fabulous! The servers were friendly and attentive without being overbearing. The food was delicious!! We had pea soup and ravioli for starters. (The soup was delicious but the raviolis were incredible). Then we had bourguignon and lamb shanks for the main. Each was divine!! But the amazing kicker was the lemon pie. Wow. The lemon was intense and tart and the meringue was sweet and gentle making the combo incredible. The setting was lovely making the entire evening a treat.

    A road trip to Montreal from Massachusetts included a return visit to Bonaparte, in Old Montreal, after 10 years. It continues to be one of our favorite Montreal restaurants - the charming old world feel of the restaurant and delicious food cooked to perfection is a culinary experience to be remembered.

    We would rank our dinner and meal as a top three lifetime dining experience. We did the sampling menu with the wine tastings and it was a wonderful 6 course, 3 hour culinary experience with top quality food and very attentive service. We highly recommend Bonaparte for a true dining adventure in the heart of Old Montreal (located beside the historic Centaur Theatre). Thank you for a truly memorable evening!

    100% waste of my time and money - I dined here on my birthday. Extremely disappointed- after telling them I was severely allergic to all forms of fennel - seeds. pollen, vegetable itself, ai was served fennel seeds on my bread and had severe swelling allergic reaction immediately and was unable to taste or enjoy my meal after.taking my steroid and allergy medication at the table. Waitstaff and management appeared unfazed after I informed them of the incident.

    Nous avons pris le menu dégustation avec l’accord mets et vins) et le service était peu incarné (le serveur donnait des informations très générales et de façon désintéressée). L’ambiance était bruyante mais les lieux sont accueillants. La nourriture était chaude et bien préparée. Les saveurs annoncées au menu n’étaient pas présentes (par exemple: une bisque de homard avec effluve de gingembre sans qu’on goûte le gingembre). J’avais aussi mentionné lors de la réservation en ligne que c’était pour un anniversaire et l’information ne s’est pas rendue. Je n’y retournerai pas car le rapport qualité prix n’y est pas vraiment.
