Excellent food but service could be a little more friendlier and quicker. Very long wait for espresso. Expensive.

Quite a nice experience during lunch time at Bonaparte. I decided to visit this restaurant after hearing so many great reviews to celebrate my partner’s 40thbirthday. Authentic French cuisine with attention to detail is what you will find at Bonaparte. Their business/executive lunch is quite worth it and delicious. I would recommend making reservations in advance and make sure that... More

I arranged for a birthday dinner for my husband and there were 11 of us on a busy Saturday evening. We ordered from the group Empress' dinner menu and every item was outstanding! I ordered the salad, scallop and shrimp appetizer and sirloin steak entree. Every bite as good as the previous one. All options were ordered and everyone was... More

French cuisine with Quebec flair and ingredients. Excellent all the way through and around. The food was delicious and served hot. Just perfect! Had chicken livers as a starter. Oh the sauce was fatastic and the livers just melted in your mouth. I then had the chicken breasts with Oka cheese - beautiful. The others had duck leg or breast,... More

Delicious dinner for our national group. The lamb was exquisite. Room was picturesque but it was extremely loud space.

We love this place! The food is always excellent, the service is polished and the atmosphere is all could you ask for in a fine French restaurant. Bonaparte is stately, yet it has warmth and personality.

Went there on a Sunday evening for a belated Valentine's dinner. The food and service were excellent but I was disappointed in the atmosphere. Rather than an intimate romantic dinner, it was full of people. The table for two next to us was so close that we could hear every word. In addition, there were several large loud tables. If...

I reviewed this restaurant on trip advisor before coming and honestly was pretty stoked about coming. Even with our high expectations this restaurant was unreal. The food, the service and the atmosphere were all incredible. I Would definitely go again.

Staying in Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)

Neighbourhood Profile
Vieux-Montreal (Old Montreal)
The historic centre of Montreal, Vieux-Port is home to some of the city's most antiquated buildings and picturesque streets. Along the waters of the St. Lawrence River, the bank of Old Port features museums, festivals, food stalls, and outdoor athletics, a celebrated part of the city that explodes into fireworks displays on warm summer nights. At its centre, street performers and artists compete with sprawling restaurant terraces for space along Jacques-Cartier Square, while the cobbled streets of Rue St. Paul and Rue Notre-Dame offer a reprieve of quiet galleries and atmospheric wine bars. Horse-drawn carriages are not an uncommon part of traffic, and the narrows they traverse are lined with boutiques, crêperies, and poutine shops enshrined in buildings of stone and wooden lattices. Here you can evoke Montreal's past with a traditional cooking lesson or historical tour, then enjoy its artistic present with live music and theatre.
