Bonaparte is a romantic lover's delight. There are tables situated in window area, or in dining room with a fireplace. You can order a la carte or table d'hote menu for $34.95, which includes choices of appetizers, entree, dessert and coffee or tea. We enjoyed chicken livers in raspberry sauce appetizer and terrine (just fair). Flank steak with brie and... More

Fantastic French food, great service, parking nearby, in the heart of Old Montreal. (Right near the Centaur theatre - excellent talent for live English plays).

It's good restaurant, don't get me wrong. But not as fantastic as many reviews seem to suggest. The service is careful and attentive. The food is what you'd expect from a good French restaurant, the portions are on the small side -which is also true for most French restaurants. I think the food is overpriced, but also seems to be... More

My friend and I had a Sunday breakfast at this restaurant, and the menu is $15/person. The menu comes with fresh orange juice, tea or coffee, fruit salad or yogurt, crepes or French toast or omelets, croisant, and muffins. The place is located in Old Montreal, a classic setting. Our waitress is super friendly and I would love to go... More

My daughter and I stayed in the adjoining hotel (Auberge Bonaparte) Feb 20 - 23, 2014. We thoroughly enjoyed the 3 course breakfast each morning in the restaurant but the highlight for us was our dinners there. I had the foie gras appetizer each night and my daughter still raves about the breast of chicken smothered in sage cream. She... More

We had dinner at the Bonaparte and greatly enjoyed our meal. My daughter and I had the seasonal menu which was based on sugaring season, it was excellent. Our server Jason went out of his way to be helpful, my daughter's best friend wanted just a mixed salad with chicken which was not on the menu and he went out... More

I have now been to Bonaparte 7 or 8 times over a span of 10 years and it has never let us down. I remember having finished my meal and then smelling the same dinner on its way to another table and it still smelled wonderful! The atmosphere and service are also incredible. Definitely worth checking out!

If you like French cuisine, then you should try out Bonaparte. The food is very good, the service is excellent and the wine list is extensive. My wife & I celebrate our wedding anniversary here every year without fail and are never disappointed. Also, its close proximity makes it a super pre-show choice for people going to the Centaur theatre.
