Great lunchtime stop for their famous warm muffuletta and Pimm’s cup. We split a half sandwich and it was more than enough for lunch. Beautiful building and wonderful dining in the outside courtyard, even on a rainy afternoon.

At first sight, this appears to be an upscale restaurant with high prices. Don’t be fooled. This is a affordable place with great food. We had dinner is the courtyard, which was so cute. The seafood gumbo was delicious and was served with a Caesar...More

Great service here! I had the shrimp remoulade stuffed avocado and had to come back for seconds. The gumbo and caesar salad is good too. More like a diner, than a fine dining restaurant. It's comfortable and your water glass will never go empty.

Had a great meal at Napoleon House. Four in our party shared Spinach/artichoke dip, shrimp stuffed avocado, red beans w/ rice, 1/2 muffaletta, and seafood gumbo. Every dish was delicious. And all our cocktails were perfect too - bloody marys, bourbon milk punch (really really...More

This place is part of the historical landmarks in New Orleans and has a great atmosphere. The staff is very friendly, they were very attentive in offering vegetarian options as most of the menu has meat on it.

We came here for lunch on Monday. Good service and relatively quick. I had the apple, grilled chicken, and brie sandwich and was happy with that. Rice and beans portion was smaller than I expected (I got this side and it was about a cup)...More

Wow! You haven’t had a Muffaletta until you’ve had one here. Superb! My daughter had the shrimp po boy and it was a close second behind the Muffaletta. This place is full of French Quarter charm. Service is friendly too. Don’t worry Muffaletta, I’ll be...More

French Quarter
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
