I had an excellent roast beef po boy and wife had mufalata (sp?). And service was excellent. Wish we would have gone back second night as that was a poor po boy at 801 .

I went with two of my girlfriends on our last night in NOLA on a recommendation from a tour guide and was not disappointed. We all got drinks, shared an appetizer and each got a meal and only spent under $70 total! The service was...More

I highly recommend this restaurant. The muffaletta was soooo good and HUGE! For $17, it fed both my husband and I AND we had some left overs. Our waitress was so friendly and fun - she truly made us feel like the staff wanted their...More

The staff treats you like personal friends and their guests. Make sure you see the courtyard out back. We are inside but the courtyard we learned was beautiful! Muffalato was delicious!!

Great historic atmosphere, the aroma of years past where notables might have set foot. The food and service are excellent and the ambiance delightful. Love the courtyard setting.

If you like muffalettas and Po Boys you need to try this place. You have to be super hungry to even split one for two. We split a half and it was a lot! And great food. Pricing is at least half of other places...More

I could not be more impressed with food and service than I was with Napoleon. Fast and attentive service and good value in a very nice casual atmosphere. Well worth the short walk from Bourbon Street.

The hot muffuletta was unbelievable! The bread was slightly crusty and soft and the first bite is unreal --- it has this tasty olive tapenade that just makes the sandwich. It comes with a pickle and pepperonchini. The gumbo/caesar salad was nothing special - Id...More

Friends & I thoroughly enjoyed our meal out in the courtyard. Great Bloody Mary & Pim’s Cup, delicious warm muffalettas, and reubens. Very reasonably priced with a small but great inside bar.

A local recommended the Muffuletta at Napolean House and it did not disappoint! It was a cool November evening when we visiting, but thankfully the outdoor courtyard dining area had heaters. The waitstaff was friendly and our meals arrived quickly after we ordered.

A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
