Three delightfully decorated halls in the Empire style that dominated
the Napoleonic era give the restaurant the intimate character
that guests treasure. An exquisite cuisine, prepared with French savoir-faire
and showcasing the finest fresh regional products.

The service was amazing! Thank you to the gentlemen that tended to our table. We ordered the Degustation Menu. There was value in the food as each dish was prepared with lots of care and effort in creativity however my tastebuds were asking for more. I would certainly still recommend this place to anyone looking for value in a tasting menu.

From the moment we stepped into the restaurant we felt so welcome! The Maître D greeted us right away and we were seated immediately(we had a reservation). Our server Fredrick was friendly, polite and professional! We ordered a beautiful bottle of wine and ordered the lobster salad and smoked salmon as appetizers. Both were excellent. Our main course was duck breast..cooked to perfection and to top a perfect evening off...a Grand Marnier Soufflé..The atmosphere was wonderful..can’t say enough about this restaurant...we will be back and we’re from Toronto. Worth the trip to Old Montreal.

Restaurant had a very good selection of food and wine. The atmosphere is nice and popular. It is definitely a good choice for special occasions such as anniversaries etc. Personnel was very attentive, especially with our 2 years old son.

I recommend the “menu degustation” especially. I definitely enjoyed the duck as main course.

We thoroughly enjoyed the taster menu. In fact, more than a taster, the courses were almost full sized, so we felt that it was good value for money. The service was friendly and respectful. A great experience!

Delightful restaurant. Friendly staff. A wee bit slow - but not out of the ordinary pace. Starters were outstanding. Mains - just good. Not great. Meaning - the lamb rack sauce had just a faint flavor - and the Dover sole was kind of plain.

Excelente lugar! Gran servicio, deliciosa comida (clásicos franceses) aunque el bisque de langosta y la sopa de cebolla dejaron un poco a desear (faltaba sal, faltaba queso a la sopa de cebolla). Ubicación privilegiada. Una gran dirección para una cena romántica!

It was a lovely evening. Service was attentive and professional. Boreal martinis were great. We did the fixed price menu which was great value. The venison terrine was delicious. I had the haddock in a wonderful wine butter sauce. My husband had the Hanger steak which he raved about. Desserts of lime/lemon pie and caramel flan were also great. The ability to order a 1/2 bottle wine was perfect. A wonderful non roadhouse, non pub evening. We loved it!

My fiancé and I came here to celebrate our anniversary and our engagement. We did the tasting menu and it was amazing, multi-note, and exciting without being overwhelming. Even though he is a bit picky, he enjoyed all his dishes. The service was amazing and attentive but not overbearing. It was a great experience!

We all had the tasting menu. We started with champagne. The sommelier recommended a nice bottle of Pinot Noir for dinner and we finished with an XO Cognac. The service was outstanding:) We always find time for a dinner at Bonaparte when in Montréal.
