Went here with some girlfriends for a late dinner. We shared an assortment of appetizers and shared the duck as the main. It was incredible! Delicious and well presented. Would definitely come back next time I'm on Montreal!

From the moment you walk in you are transported! The vibe is very Parisian, the staff extremely attentive and responsive. The food spectacular. I started with the seafood pastry which popped with flavour. For the main course I had the lamb shank / pork belly which were perfect. It's been a long time since I've had pork belly this good!...

We have eaten at this restaurant before and been impressed. We were not disappointed on this occasion. The service and food were very good. When we went we had just had the notice from Trip Advisor that it was ranked the number 9 restaurant in Canada.

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

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.
