Had a lovely anniversary dinner here. Got a great table and service. Scallop/shrimp starter was great as well as the lamb main. Wickedly good soufflé (Calvados) with a sparkler for anniversary. Nice half bottle of wine which is always a plus as we're not heavy drinkers and never finish the bottle. Husband had duck starter and seafood stew and loved both. Would highly recommend.

We visit Montreal annually and have our "favorites" (all in TripAdvisors top 10) but staying in Old Montreal this May, we chose to adventure as far as our Hotel Restaurant "Bonaparte". Well, were we impressed!
While the regular Menu can be in the pricey range, the daily "table d'hote" 3-course dinner, was the best meal we have enjoyed for any similar price in the old port area.
A true classically trained French Chef, demonstrating what he can do with food, in a comfortable atmosphere, the true experience of Old Montreal.
Book ahead if you need specific dates. Very busy.

Was prepared to be disappointed since the high praise from most of the past reviewers had really raised the bar high, but it didn't happen. The food was a delight, service attentive but not intrusive and the pace of the meal was perfect. We had the ravioli and seared fois gras starters, followed by the lobster with linguine. All beautifully presented and a joy to eat. The restaurant has a warm, friendly feel and is set in a lovely old building in Old Montreal. I just wish I had been able to find space for the amazing looking soufflés.

Decent food. The waiter Yannick made the evening memorable. Very old school, proper, very knowledgeable young man who excels at what he does. The food was good. Not outstanding, but good. Would definitely return.

For our last night in Montreal, we wanted a special meal to serve as an anniversary celebration. We chose Bonaparte. Good choice.

This is a formal meal, and the service matches.

We shared a table d'hote and a tasting menu. We feasted on lobster bisque, venison terrine (with all the accoutrements, creating different taste sensations), warmed goat cheese salad, shrimp and scallops in a vanilla sauce (everything perfectly prepared and seasoned), pear and tarragon sorbet with sparking wine (palate cleanser), duck with native berries in a maple sauce (one of the best duck I ever had), a lamb shank and pork belly duo (the lamb was good, the pork belly a bit dry, which we found confusing considering everything else we ate) and desserts: (an amazing creme caramel that we both could not stop eating, and an assortment of a nice creme brulee, and forgettable small cakes).

The meal was not cheap (the tasting was $80 Canadian, the Table D'Hote $40 Canadian), but the meal was more than just food, but an event.
