Well, well. Had new year's eve here. The hospitality was excellent and the service exceptionally good given a completely full restaurant for the second or third serving.

Wines were $28 for a half bottle of Chablis and $40 for a half bottle of St. Esteph Bordeaux. The degustation menu was the only one available that night and it was six courses plus dessert. I found that the preparation was very good, a bit rushed and the seasoning was way too low. Nothing popped, but everything was very good. The creme brulee de pate is excellent and inventive. The filet and lamb filet were very good, but both were short on flavor. They shouldn't have been. So, I had a great time, enjoyed the experience, but feel they didn't land for $350 of dinner. Perhaps a slower night will be better..

Certainly worth eating here.

My wife and I had a lovely romantic dinner at Bonaparte last week. The food was very good and not overpriced. The wine list was nicely varied both in selection and price points. The service was excellent - attentive without being annoying. Highly recommended.

The food at Bonaparte is just excellent. We ate there not only for dinner but also twice for breakfast. Great experience every time. The restaurant was recommended to us by others who had been to Montreal before us, and I would not hesitate to recommend it to others. We will certainly be back the next time we visit Montreal.

This restaurant is truly top notch and you are in for a delightful gastronomic experience. The menu is so comprehensive your only disappointment will be that you cant have it all. Coming from Boston I was even impressed by the reasonable prices. Don't miss this experience. Added benefit is that it's located in Old Montreal where you'll want to hang out as a tourist.
