My fave in old Montreal. Food is great, just wish the bread will be served warm though. Nothing beats warm bread and cold butter! Service is impeccable, I dropped my knife during meal time, and the asst server came in 2 seconds to pick it up and offer a new one. Staff are very sincere and welcoming! Love love this place.

Food very good as usual. French onion soup disappointing. More of a plain onion soup with no cheese crouton topping. Ask for Filet mignon with the port wine sauce instead of the peppercorn sauce. Absolutely delicious! Gran marnier souffles always perfect . Ask for the creme anglaise sauce beforehand because they dont always bring it. Our favorite restaurant in Montreal!

Les entrées étaient excellentes, mon plat principal, un filet mignon, un peu trop mince et un peu trop cuit; il était medium et il aurait du être medium saignant. J'ai dégusté plusieurs filets mignons qui étaient de loin meilleur que celui. Nous avions prix le menu dégustation avec l'accord des vins, nous avons eu l'équivalent 1/2 bouteille par personne pour un prix de $75 donc $150 dollars la bouteille, un peu cher pour ouvrir ces bouteilles, mais les vins étaient très bien choisis.

I was really disappointed in our experience here. I had hoped for a classic French dining experience. The room was beautiful, the china and silver were just gorgeous. But the food was a real letdown. It was just ok. For the prices I would have expected my socks to have been knocked off. It's probably great for a business dinner, but for food lovers it was a spectacular letdown, especially with so many other amazing dining options in Montreal.

Dinner at Bonaparte was very luxurious and delicious but without breaking the bank. We had the beef bourginion and duck breast with maple/berry sauce. (I had 3 courses as part of the Montréal la table promo- soup and dessert was also great) This was our favorite meal while visiting Montréal and I would highly recommend it

The tasting menu was delicious. Portioned it very well. Switched out the dessert for the souffle grand Marnier. It was delicious. A bit strong in the grand Marnier, but baked perfectly.

A lovely French restaurant that is located nearby the Montreal Notre Dame; the atmosphere is very comfortable in the environment of Napoleon theme. I did not know that the restaurant is attached to a hotel, so I went to the hotel reception to check in for my restaurant reservation. Later the friendly staff redirected me to the restaurant entrance and I was seated to my table very quickly with a view of the Old Montreal Street. T

There was so many options for choosing; I simply went with the 8 courses meal so that it will be easier for me and I get to try out a lot of different dishes. Similar to the drink menu so I just went with the wine pairing option to have a relaxing and easy dinner without too much thinking.

The meal itself was like a roller coaster ride that takes your taste bud up and down non-stop for about two to two and a half hour with variety of item of my choice

Fabulous. Reserved and given window table. We are not fine dining regulars but this was a treat. Find dining out hit and miss. But this. Service, ambience and dinner excellent . I tasted my wife’s Lamb shank and loved it. And I don’t like lamb! The 3-course Montreal Table at $58 such a great deal. Highly recommend.

The true french ambiance (19th century chandeliers, David painting of Napoleon’s coronation, Piaf singing in the background, etc.) and menu were great, and the food was very good and nicely plated. The service was friendly, old school formal (in a good way), but slower paced than we would have liked. The entire experience was 2 hours 45 minutes, which felt 45 minutes too long.
