Our waiter Francois was amazing. As a matter of fact every person that served us was fantastic. My rack of lamb was out of this world! I highly recommend this restaurant.

Easy to find and park. Maître d’Hotel and servers nip and tuck. Intimate, welcoming, warm and friendly. Menu had good balance and variety in both Table d’Hote and a la Carte. Food hit my “4 Ps”: exceptionally well prepared, portioned and presented with a price point that didn’t leave a bitter taste in my wallet. A very pleasant and satisfying evening.

We have eaten at Bonaparte a few times and have been very happy with everything. The waiters were VERY friendly and very accommodating during our visit. The wait time in between courses was a little long, but we've noticed that in Montreal, they don't rush to get you out. We weren't in a hurry at all, so it was okay. Some may not agree.
We will definitely be back on our nest trip north.

Special anniversary dinner was a complete success thanks to the amazing food, service and ambiance of the Bonaparte. We took the menu dégustation which allows for a sampling of the house signature dishes (6 courses). A feast for the eyes and palate. Service was attentive yet unobtrusive. The noise level was low which allowed for wonderful conversation. I highly recommend.

Bonaparte is the perfect restaurant for any special occasion. We had our anniversary dinner there and they took such good care of us from the moment we arrived. The service was excellent and everyone who came to our table congratulated us. We had the tasting menu and found the food to be sublime. The seafood was divine and the lamb was just gorgeous. They made us feel as if they were just waiting for us to make their day. Well, they made our day extra special and we can’t wait to return. Thank you, Bonaparte for such a memorable evening!

We took the Valentine`s Day menu and it was great all around. The staff was friendly as usual and the bartender knows his craft and shows it well. This is actually the only restaurant we enjoy having a drink at the bar before going our meal because nothing is watered down and the mix are pretty original.
A+++

The 6 course dinner was interesting. The wait time before the meat plates was WAY TOO LONG. The host apologized , but the time was too long. The meat plates were delicious, but heavily over shadowed by the long wait.
On another note, as a gay couple, we appreciated being offered a rose as we left. That was a true class act of inclusion!

For Valentine's day, we had the 6 course tasting menu. Each was a reasonable sized serving and well prepared. Avoid the small room in the back of you can.

I enjoyed my dinner from beginning to end. It started with a nicely seasoned lobster bisque, followed by a delicious salmon tartare with smoked salmon, a scrumptious seafood crepe, and a spectacularly tender filet. The atmosphere was warm and cordial, and the service was attentive, prompt, and gracious. I'll be back!

Lovely, elegant yet cozy dining room in the old style with chandeliers and high ceilings. This is offset by modern fireplace and wine display. All personnel were pleasant and helpful and the food was excellent - and that's the opinion of world traveling foodies!

Un grand merci à toute l'équipe pour un superbe souper en tête-à-tête romantique. Service impeccable, nous ne nous sommes jamais sentis brusqués pour procéder aux prochains plats. Recommandations excellentes pour alcool comme accompagnement, nourriture délicieuse avec portions généreuses, ambiance tranquille. Fortement recommandé, vous ne le regretterez pas! Nous serons de retour à notre prochaine visite à Montréal.

I never write reviews, however, this was hands down one of the best restaurant experiences I have had the pleasure of enjoying. On a weekend trip to Montreal from NY, my boyfriend and I decided at the last minute to switch our reservation to this restaurant. Immediately we were greeted with smiles at coat check and promptly sat at our tables. We had the creme brulee fois gras with gingerbread toast which was to die for. I had the venison medallions and my boyfriend has the chicken with sage creme. Both of which were absolutely delicious. We finished with a chocolate and hazelnut mousse which had the perfect amount of sweetness (not too much). Our server went above and beyond for us and was so incredibly personable. He even wrote down markets and museums for us to visit while we were in the city. I beyond highly recommend Bonaparte to anyone, local or visiting, for a wonderful night!

My fiancé and I made reservations to celebrate my birthday and it was absolutely wonderful. We opted for the ala carte menu and tried the warm goat cheese filo dough appetizer. The kitchen was able to split this into two generous portions for us which was very sweet and not expected. It was extremely tasty, but I will say, we both were not expecting the cheese to have such a sharp taste -- still good, just unexpected. When we ordered our mains, our server was so fabulous and recommended a red wine blend for my venison medallions with mushroom ravioli. It paired together so well. The server also recommended that I get my venison rare, which I wasn't too keen on, but she convinced me to get medium rare and I am glad I did. It really did melt in my mouth and was so yummy! The only down side to my meal specifically was by the time I got around to my raviolis, they were cold which was a little unfortunate. As for my fiancé, he ordered an old fashioned and the filet mignon, both of which he said were the best he ever had. The plating was absolutely beautiful, as was the ambience of the entire restaurant. We ended the night with creme brûlée and their chocolate hazelnut cake, which were absolutely wonderful. At the end, they came out with a bite size strawberry-looking cake with a sparkler attached to celebrate my birthday, which was so lovely! I really enjoyed eating here and will absolutely be back the next time we visit Montreal.

Excellent service from the woman who served us: she greeted me warmly when I arrived late (!) and realized I would need a second Prosecco! She also timed when we were ready for another course. We were out in 1.5 hours - perfect for going next door to the theatre.
