Experience was perfect. Food was the right balance between classic French with a modern twist. Wine menu is impressive for all budgets and service was excellent.
Definitely add to my repeat list.

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.

Food is OK but not exceptional. This restaurant is certainly overpriced. A bottle of sparkling water costs 12$ before tax and tip.

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.

Wonderful restaurant in Old Montreal. Classic cuisine done very, very well. Lamb Shank, Duck, Steak and Fish of the Day were ordered at our table along with a delicious Terrine and Boeuf Tartare to start. A very affordable wine list. Excellent service. All in all a great dining experience!

Booked here as we were staying at the hotel, and wanted something convenient so didn't want to think about trying to find something else after travelling all day.
We were so pleasantly amazed - our daughter and her partner joined us for dinner, and we all had the best meal. Our server also helped us with a belated birthday treat for our daughter's partner, and he felt very special.
We definitely recommend - service is professional and top notch, food is excellent, as is the wine and drinks menu.

The whole evening started at 19:40 finished at 22h00 and we skipped desert because the whole supper took for ever! We got seated, got the menu waited 20 mins for the waiter to come, ordered drinks waited an other 15mins ordered the 6 services menu dégustation* I had to asked if we could have a basket of bread that they delivered right after. The meals were smelling amazing but oh my so disappointed by the taste, watery most of all of them. Soup and ravioli that I had hear here was phenomenal, we’re just tasting watery and was lacking seasoning. Main course lamb asked for rosé* got almost blue ended up being chewy and not enjoyable. I had ask for a drink of their choice that would be sweet, that came back amazing!!! Being 22h00 we decided it was enough and after long periods of waits for the mini plates we got we left. Not to said it was not worth the 360$
Place is beautiful but we’re going there for the food not the decor so disappointed and wouldn’t go back.
