Delicious french cuisine. Service is great. MUST make a reservation. Also do not forget to order a souffle (must order when you order your dinner). Its to die for. I dream about their chocolate souffle, which is a sweet souffle with chocolate chip disks. I have yet to find another place that... read more

My wife and I visited this evening and were throughly impressed with every aspect. We enjoyed a wonderful tasting menu that was set up for the Valentines weekend. The food was incredible and the portions were more than we were expecting. Out waiter was very attentive, but not hovering over us. He provided an excellent recommendation for a bottle of... More

We travel a lot. At Bonaparte, we had, without a doubt, the best meal we have ever had. The food was out of this world and the service, impeccable.

Every so often you have a meal that is just fantastic on all levels. Dinner at Bonaparte tonight was exactly that. I went with my parents and sibling, for a birthday dinner, and it was just perfect. The food was some of the best I've ever had. Everything was mouth-wateringly good. The place itself is cozy and really nicely set... More

The place is very clean, nice cloth table coverings, fresh flowers, amazing food. Only visited for breakfast, but was told by a local, that they are well known for their great food at dinner.

Great choice for a romantic b-day supper at a reasonable price. The sommelier was very knowledgeable and even wrote down for us a few different types of wine we might like to try. Definitely will go there again, and highly recommend it. Enjoy!

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...
