Bonaparte Ratings and Reviews
Beautiful building , with a charm about it. Dinner was excellent, we had the tasting menu and it was more then enough food. Very traditional French and we recommend you try the duck. Overall a great night and a nice change from the Brooklyn French restaurants we usually go to.
Our party of four enjoyed Bonaparte's warm, quiet ambience and attentive service . The recommended wines were affordable and complimented the dishes. The soup and salad starters were very tasty with the crisp asparagus and goat cheese of particular note; the mains--haddock and hangar steak--were classically prepared. The steak tartare, while ordered "very spicy", was not. Toast points which are normally served with this dish would have been appreciated. Our dessert, the lime meringue pie, was very disappointing. We wished we had ordered the classic creme caramel instead.
We first went to Bonaparte a few years ago, and had a wonderful experience. This weekend, however, the dining room was very hot - the thermostat near us read 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Also, the service was slow and our server seemed burdened with too many tables. My food was good, but my husband was disappointed with his hanger steak.
This was my third time going to Bonaparte. The food was great (portion is a bit large in my opinion, perhaps it's for the North American crowd), delicious as always.
The service was outstanding. We were first seated at a corner table but soon a party of three sat next to us and they were very loud and obnoxious. We gently asked the server if there's another table. It was a very busy night but he managed to change us to another quiet corner booth. We have a fantastic meal. Wine list is very extensive, and price reasonable.
We had only one night to "go out on the town". We were going to see Aura at Norte Dame and picked Bonaparte as a convenient location. We enjoyed their six course tasting menu. Everything was delicious and service was friendly and unrushed. Definitely a place to visit again.
We went here on a snowy evening and were lucky enough to be seated in the alcove facing the window and street. And we had a wonderful meal here---the best we had in Montreal in fact. Service was impeccable, food was excellent and beautifully prepared. One of us had the 3 course meal at $39.95 which in our opinion was a delicious bargain. And the lime meringue pie was a beautiful finish.
From the warm and gracious welcome, through the courteous, friendly and prompt service and to the main event, the excellent food, our evening was a delight. We found the food to be not too "fussy" but fresh and perfectly prepared. The green salad was crisp and dressed just right and the soup was tasty. The roast pork and the cassoulet were our choices for the main course, and were both excellent. Desserts were not heavy or too fancy: the lime and meringue pie and the creme caramel were just the right endings for our meals. Thank you! We will be back the next time we have Centaur tickets.
A lovely and traditional restaurant attached to a small hotel. We particularly enjoyed the quiet atmosphere that allowed us to concentrated on the excellent food and our conversation. Service was attentive without being overbearing. The wine list has a focus on French wines (including a large selection of Burgundy) with some good choices at moderate prices...particularly when considering the current (March 2017) exchange rate with the US dollar!
This is a cozy restaurant in Old Montreal. We had the tasting menu and it was excellent. The wine list has a wide variety of wines with a wide variety of prices. We selected a Volnay which was very nice. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. If we lived in Montreal, we would come here regularly!
