Bonaparte was excellent as usual. We eat there 6 or 7 times a year and always get excellent service, beautifully prepared, unpretentious food and a warm welcome. We always look forward to dining at Bonaparte.

The decor and ambience were both nice and to the likes of me and my husband. The waiters were nice, friendly, and attentive. Food was AMAZING and I wish I had a glass of wine, but I had to skip it because of work afterwards. It's also in a neighborhood that really reminds people of the streets in Paris. We had a wonderful meal and time--highly recommended!

J'ai été très déçu du civet de cerf. La majorité des morceaux de viande étaient durs et presque difficiles à mâcher. Pour le prix et le restaurant, je m'attendais que tous les morceaux de cerf soient tendres. Mon amoureuse a bien aimé l'assiette de poisson. Très belle ambiance, serveur très amiable et prévenant. Merci du feu de bengale sur le dessert de mon amoureuse qui célébrait son anniversaire.

Delicious French food, expertly prepared and beautifully presented. The hint of maple flavoring in the light sauce on the magret de canard gave it a truly French Canadian flair. From the terrine appetizer to the bottle of Bordeaux, everything was excellent. Bonaparte offers a true fine dining experience without pretentiousness. Service is attentive without being obtrusive. Atmosphere is warm and lively while still quiet enough for good conversation. We will definitely come here again if we visit Montreal.

Great Dinner. We enjoyed the Degustation Menu and thought it was a great value. The Duck was tough, but the Lamb was sublime.

Went to this restaurant with great expectations, after checking out their menu online. Although things were tasty, we did not think that it was worth the price. The wine situation was strange, as it was brought in a small carafe (we picked a 1/2 lit option from the wine menu), instead of being opened in front of us. Furthermore, the wine had actually turned and we returned it back (quite unacceptable for a haute gamme restaurant). Service was quite good, but in the end, what counts is food + spirits...

The service is friendly, polite and efficient. My wife and I had the table d'hote. She had the salade starter and was a generous portion a mixed greens. I had the vegetable soup and was very flavourful. The main courses were veal flank steak and hangar beef steak, both cooked just right and wonderfully seasoned. We both had the fruit salad which had a mix of fruits with a mint infused liquid that we both enjoyed very much.

We were visiting Montreal and our concierge recommended the restaurant - we were looking for upscale french walking distance from the Westin. Entire experience was impeccable. Try the 6 course tasting menu, it's spectacular and worth every penny.

Classic French cuisine, attentive but not intrusive service. The special pre-theatre menu offers three choices and is served in a timely way. The food is healthy, and the portions are not overly large. Attractive, somewhat formal space. Lively bar separate from dining room, attached to small hotel.

I chose Bonaparte for my dinner on my last evening in Montreal because of the excellent reviews, and I am so glad I did. I had the tasting menu and two cocktails. Amazing does not even begin to describe how good every single aspect of my experience was. In addition to the out of this world food and drinks, the service was spectacular. My server was very knowledgeable and helpful, and even translated the names of the cocktails into English, which I found very sweet. I would highly recommend Bonaparte, especially as the tasting menu lets you try more multiple dishes. I chose the lobster bisque, smoked salmon, escargot, and duck breast options, and all of them were so well prepared and flavorful. The sorbet and dessert tray that comes with the tasting menu were equally flavorful and perfect with the meal. I honestly can not say enough wonderful things about my experience and look forward to returning when next I am in Montreal.

We had the Table d'Haute but substituted a Grand Marnier soufflé for dessert . The food was very good as were the wine. The service and advice provided by Jason were excellent. We first visited Bonaparte's in 1997and still enjoy visiting whenever we are in Montreal.

We had a lovely meal. It was not quite as spectacular as others but still very good indeed. The gravlax was terrific and the skate very good indeed. The veal steak was swamped by an unremarkable sauce. The mousse was very light and tasty. The servers are terrific and help make this a great dining experience.

Sur place pour un souper en amoureux, nous nous sommes "payé la traite" avec le menu dégustation. Tout était excellent du début à la fin, les cuissons étaient parfaites, le service avec Caroline qui est également sommelière était excellent. Nous recommandons ce restaurant sans hésitation et nous y retournerons sans aucun doute. Pour les amateurs de vins, beaucoup de choix à votre disposition.
