Bonaparte Ratings and Reviews

I made reservations and asked for somewhere intimate as it was our 1yr anniversary. Not only did we get set at a beautiful quiet corner but the view of the Christmas decorated in candied fruit was spectacular. The service was excellent, very personable, the menu deviné, and for the dessert they came out with sparklers in the dessert to wish us many more happy years. Definitely worth every penny spent. It's not cheap but the atmosphere, the service and food are definitely well worth it.

Très belle soirée avec ma femme pour son anniversaire. La nourriture était excellente ainsi que le service (distingué sans être snob ou prétentieux comme cela est parfois le cas dans certain restaurant plus chic). La seule distraction était un problème électrique de lumières que les employés ont bien tenté de réglé mais sans succès et pour lequel ils se sont excusé.

Bonaparte has recently been redecorated and seems somewhat brighter than before. However, the menu remains much the same, not the most innovative but a very high quality traditional French menu. Plates and portions seem a bit larger than formerly. The service remains efficient, informed and friendly.

Great food, friendly service and good location in the heart of Old Montreal. The tasting menu was a great way to sample all of the delights that were on offer. We went for a late dinner so the restaurant was quieter than earlier in the evening when we walked pass. The staff were attentive and polite. Highly recommend if you wish to have a well crafted meal.

Excellent service with a humorously interactive waiter. The meal was one of the lengthiest I've had, with a tasting menu that lasted three hours, yet flew by. My only complaint is the bistro-style wooden chairs that could have been more comfortable.

This is one of the highest rated Monteral restaurants. So went there with high expectations. Maybe they were too high. Because they were not fully met. Make no mistake, this restaurant serves some good food. Also the decor of the place exudes a quiet elegance. But given the very high prices they charge one feels that things could have been better. The Foi Gras, Lamb chops and the Soufle were all good, but it is possible to get equally good, if not better renditions of those dishes at few other places in Montreal while spending significantly less. Also the portions do not do full justice to the prices they charge.

Quaint with an attentive staff that took great care in serving us. Food was excellent, for the most part. We enjoyed the tasting menu, and the price was reasonable compared to many fine restaurants that offer one.

All you do is have to answer one simple question: "Do I want possibly the best French meal I could get west of the atlantic?"
If you said yes, then you are on your way to Bonaparte. Or you might be on your way there for a second meal.
The experience is one that simultaneously caters to all the senses. The soft clink of silverware against fine porcelain, the smell of white linen and leather chairs, the feel of warmth from the fire, the taste of mellowness in the Bordeaux to the tapestry of interwoven gustatory experiences in each little course.
By far and away, the Mushroom Ravioli (tender, hot and filled with melting mushrooms) and Duck Magret (cooked rosé) with a melange of fresh vegetables, were my favorite dishes. Don't discount the Creme Brulee. The hard crystalized top hides beneath a creamy dessert so well blended that you can't taste the egg yolk at all.
Go here or go back. Either way you won't be disappointed.

Mes 5 amis et moi sommes allés chez Bonaparte dans le cadre du festival Mtl à Table et avons vraiment apprécié l'expérience. Le service était très bien et la nourriture ici. Excellent rapport qualité/prix, car ils proposaient un menu 4 services en plus du café/thé pour l'occasion, alors que les autres restaurants offrent généralement un trois services. Seul petit bémol, tous les plats sont servis avec les mêmes accompagnements, et seule la protéine change, donc on n'a moins l'impression que le plat est un "tout". Ils ont été très accommodants envers mon végétarisme, ce que j'ai apprécié. À refaire!

J'ai beaucoup apprécié le service, personnel très gentil et attentionné. Bon choix de menu, pas pour les végétariens, dans le menu MtlàTable, du moins. Salade correcte, sans plus. J'ai pris le tilapia, gros morceau de poisson, mais accompagnements minimalistes. Bon choix de vin, plutôt dispendieux. Ambiance agréable, petite salle à manger. Service rapide, nous avons demandé à retarder le service, car nous n'avions pas le temps de finir notre cocktail. Ingrédients de qualité.

Bonaparte is a beautiful restaurant!! The service is impeccable and so is the food :)))) They surprised us with a special table to celebrate my husbands birthday, it was amazing and we'll thought of. Overall we had an amazing experience! The food was delicious and they have a great selection of wine. We recommend Bonaparte for any occasion :D I thank the staff and owner once more for making this celebration so special.
Merci à tous!!!!!

We had a lovely meal. We wanted something more traditional and this fit the bill. We had the prix fixe menu, which was a very good value. The meal was excellent - all of the components were executed well. I tend to prefer something a little more lively and spirited - this was definitely a quieter, more formal, dining experience, but we still very much enjoyed ourselves. Service was good and professional, not overly friendly or familiar. Recommended for a more traditional fine dining experience.
