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.

Excellent meal. The waitress was quite knowledgeable and extremely helpful. Her support staff was a bit unenthused, but it would never stop me from returning. The scallops entree was outstanding!!

French Old Town Valentine's Day Wow !!!

Just finished our romantic French old town Valentine's Day tasting menu. Wonderful ambiance. Amazing staff and service from everyone. Food cooked to perfection. My wife and I had the lobster bisque, duck fois gras, seafood medley, veal, swordfish, and a tasters selection of delicious deserts. A special treat for sure, plus a red rose. Wonderful wine list too. We had a French Pinot Grigio. Very very enjoyable. Will be back again for sure. Thank you Bonaparte. Happy Valentine's Day !!!

This is a lovely restaurant. We arrived a few minutes early for our Saturday night reservation. We were greeted enthusiastically and seated immediately in a small, intimate room. The service was professional. We will return next year to try the tasting menu, but I did not find my Table d'Hote selection to be inspired. It was a good experience overall, but I wanted to love the food.

Wonderful dining experience! Romantic setting, excellent service, and food was magnifique! Highly recommend the onion soup, filet mignon, and duck. All superbly prepared and delicious. My wife and I loved it - our only regret is that we didn't have enough time to order the tasting menu. We'll be back!

This wonderful restaurant delivered an exceptional experience and is firing on all cylinders. My snail tartlet Provencale starter and Duck Leg confite main course were prepared with world class perfection. The interior rooms are elegant and cozy. The table service was outstanding, and provided by a highly knowledgeable server-sommelier. She has phenomenal understanding of wine from around the world and how to pair it with each dish. Do not forget to ask for her advice. She is a superstar. And do not miss this incredible Montréal eatery.

This was a 1st time at a French restaurant for my wife and i and our 12 yr old daughter. Restaurant is in beautiful Old Montreal. In side place is clean warm and staff is very friendly and speak English which is a huge help. Our server Catherin was incredible. She was helpful courteous and very knowledgable. She recommended us to go with 3 course tasting menu. Great choice food was fantastic and the presentation was spectacular. We live in New Jersey and will definetly be back to Bonaparte again. Thank you so much Catherin for teaching us a little French. Merci

We went to celebrate my wife's birthday. The service was excellent they attended to our every need. Fast, polite, friendly and fun. The food was very good and everyone enjoyed their meals without a single complaint. The restaurant go busier as we dined but still they made sure we were not forgotten. The desserts were as amazing as the main course.

Would love to come back some day!

This bistro is a gem in the heart of Old Montreal. From the moment we walked through the door, we were greeted with a friendly face. We showed up earlier than our reservation, and were accommodated without issue. In fact, we were given a choice of two tables. We opted for the tasting menu--all dishes were fantastic, well plated and quite large portions (to our surprise and happiness).

The servers were lovely and were all too happy to speak to us in English. Every course came out looking like a picture and the food was the perfect temperature. There wine menu is fantastic and there cocktails, delicious!

We will certainly be visiting again!

I have eaten at Bonaparte a fewtimes bow and it never fails to be an amazing evening. The tasting menu is worth it and my favs are the onion soup, escargot, lamb, duck or filet. A wonderful wine list and cocktails and the staff are attentive, charming and knowledgeable. Worth the visit!

My friends and I had an excellent time at Bonaparte! I had driven up from NYC to surprise my friend on her engagement day, and rushed in from the cold, asking the host (in a bit of a panic) if the staff could help us with the surprise. They not only followed my directions exactly, they also came up with ideas of their own on how they could hide us - while still giving us an excellent table - all within 10 minutes of the fiancee's arrival. The surprise worked! On top of that, our waiter gave us complimentary champagne to celebrate, decorated our desserts with sparklers to make things extra special, and everyone on staff treated us with kindness and warmth, offering their best wishes to the happy couple. They really went the extra mile to make it a special experience - and the food, wine and ambience were all wonderful. Thank you to the team at Bonaparte for making it such a memorable night for us! We'll be back again!

I visited Bonaparte with close family for my birthday and we had a lovely time. I have a GI condition and a number of dietary intolerances, but I corresponded with management ahead of time and the staff and kitchen were most respectful of my needs and very accommodating. I don't normally eat out, because it can be stressful making such specific requests, but I felt very comfortable at Bonaparte and would definitely visit again. My guests very much enjoyed the tasting menu and the table d'hôte, and I very much enjoyed my modified main! Lovely classic ambiance and romantic location in the Vieux-Port. Highly recommended.

AMAZING DINNER! We had one of the most memorable dinners ever. From the moment we arrived to saying goodnight to our waiter, our expectations were surpassed at every turn. Frédéric was undoubtedly the most attentive, polite, kind, friendly and knowledgeable waiter I've ever experienced. We were so taken by the delicious menu and by Frédéric that we tried to make a reservation for the following night, but unfortunately they were fully booked. We will definitely come back to Bonaparte the next time we visit Old Montreal. This is the perfect place to dine - the dinner menu and the wine selection are truly remarkable. We'd recommend Bonaparte to anyone. An 11 out of 10.

The service and ambience was excellent so I’d come here again for a nice evening out. The food was kind of a hit or miss. Some of the dishes were too bland for our liking (the escargots and lobster bisque) while the chicken was amazing - their white sauce and the cheese paired very well, proportions were just right to give it enough taste without being too rich or cheesy. The hanger steak however was a medium-rare but turned out more on the rare side.
