Success! Thanks for posting your review of Napoleon House Bar & Cafe. You’ve done the world some good today.

On a typically hot July summer...

On a typically hot July summer day In 1966 my fiance, now wife, and I first entered Napoleon House for a late afternoon drink. We were greeted by a portly, balding waiter attired in a full white apron. He seated us at a small round table under a paddle fan that pretended to stir the thick New Orleans air. An old 78 Caruso record was playing on the record player. I looked around and expected to see Humphrey Bogart sit... view more

It needs some help!

Maybe it was just the night we went in but we have gone in a lot and it has been good. But this night everything as going wrong. My red beans and rice were only ok and everyone elses food looked like it was from buffet line and not good. The soft drinks had to be reminded about and water had to be asked for. Not to mention the mice running around the floor while you eat. I love opening the doors but it is gross eatin... view more

Atmosphere is High New Orleans

Go for the atmosphere. The interior is one of the best in the Quarter for historical feel.

Where else can you get good food at cheap prices with an infitely classy and yet distinctively casua

From the gorgeous courtyard to the wait staff of classy gentlemen in bow-ties to the consistent strains of classical music to the 18th century environs... Simply put, Napoleon house is a classic. Great as a bar or an afternoon lunch stop, and not to be forgotten for dinner parties, company events, or receptions. The fair is pretty standard New Orleans bistro food made the right way and sold at a great price for the F... view more

Best Bloody Mary in town!

Didn't have a chance to eat there, but did enjoy sitting at the beautiful old bar on two occasions. Mario at the bar makes the best bloody mary EVER! Cheap beer and good Pimm's cups. Great atmosphere!

Best Value in NOLA

We love Napoleon House. You can stop in for a helping of affordable jambalaya/muffaletta, and it's GOOD! Unless you're famished, you could split one muffaletta with someone, along with a cold Abita Springs beer, and feel content. One day we did have to wait awhile for our waiter, but it happened only once. Atmosphere is casual to quaint, depending on where you sit, and the place is clean. The courtyard is delightful.... view more

Even after the hurricane, Napolean House survives! Love the Pimm's cups, and their bread pudding is a;ways a treat!

Relieved it's still there!!!

Napoleon House is one of my favorite haunts in the French Quarter. I was hugely relieved when I found it intact and, mostly, unchanged in my first visit since Katrina. The atmosphere is wonderful, the historical surroundings, dim lighting, and classical music really set mood. The staff is very friendly, the food is great, and the drinks are cold. Right now they have limited hours and menu, due to a shortage of staff ... view more

Our Favorite Place in the Big Easy

My wife and I visit NO as often as possible. And Napoleon House is always a must visit experience. The bar, inside dining, and court yard are all wonderful experiences. One one of our visits it was my wife's birthday, and the dining room was closed...but they allowed us to sit anyway...and it was so cool as we were the only diners in the room with candlelight and an attentive waiter. It was a birthday we will never f... view more

Great bar and Restaurant

This is by far the best restaurant I have ever been to. The food is excellent and reasonably priced and the service is very professional. The bar makes you feel like you are in a movie, too. However, the ambience takes the cake, ESPECIALLY the courtyard. Top notch, highly recommended, period, end of sentence!
