You really appreciate Bonaparte because the wait staff have been trained to be waiters in the true French style, the cuisine ad menu offerings are truly French with a Quebecois twist, and the whole experience is remarkable and memorable. Would highly recommend if you are looking for a classical restaurant style which is sadly lacking in many other establishments. Truly... More

Soup and dessert was excellent. Entre's were lacking. Service would have been acceptable if we had not gone in expecting a dining experience of the highest caliber. Water glasses were left unattended. Lack of concern for the dining experience. We were doing them a favor by coming on a cold winter, weekday evening. We were disappointed. Might have just been...

Birthday dinner in September 2014. Food was very good. Service was excellent. Charming location. For us it was a fine dining experience. Went back two days later to enjoy cocktails at the bar. Johnathan, the bartender was very gracious in allowing us to use our phone to video him making one of the best "Old Fashions" we have ever had.... More

Bonaparte is the house restaurant in the auberge of the same name. It is on the edge of the Old Port district. Go ahead and splurge on the prix-fixe menu. You may only get the chance once in your life, and here it is a terrific experience.

What a great meal. The fixed plate was perfection. Portions and food quality were excellent. Wine choices went pretty deep. Felt like I was on a second honeymoon. Cheers!

The Restaurant Bonaparte is an excellent choice if you're visiting Old Montreal in the evening. The excellent French selections were enhanced by the service and ambiance of this classic restaurant. Our party sampled many appetizers and entrees and were not disappointed by any. We will be back on our next visit.

The restaurant is in a small boutique hotel, situated along a quiet street just one block away from Notre-Dame Basilica. Upon stepping into the restaurant, we were warmly welcomed by Christophe, who showed us to raised window seats for 2 pax. Overlooking the quiet street, it feels really amazing with the restaurant settings. As we took time browsing through the... More
