    A pims cup and a muffuletta sandwich are you need. Both are insanely delicious. My best friend grew up eating here and she said it's as good now as when she was a kid.

    Steeped in a colonial architecture amber, this French Quarter landmark was once offered to Napoleon as a place of refuge in 1821 by Mayor Nicholas Girod. Best known for a Pimm's Cup, try a Sazerac. Read more

    Ask to sit outside on their patio, it's a nice cozy environment. Otherwise we tried the gumbo and poy-boy for the first time, and we loved it! Everything was fresh and delicious. Worth stopping at!

    In the last years of Napoleon, local fans donated this house and tried to bring him here to live his last years. Unfortunately for them he died before they could bring him.

    The whole muffuletta can be shared up to 4 people. Then just order other sides to share such as the rich and awesome gumbo!

    Bruce was an amazing waiter. He guided us to their famous Pimms cup, slight variations, and entrees. Loved the jambalaya, and my girlfriend had an amazing po boy with beans/rice. A great spot! Great $

    Great Pimm's cup, muffaletta sandwich (quarter-size shown!), and creole tomato caprese salad.

    Amazing courtyard, proper waiters, and the Pimms! Also good food. Great place to feel like your in Europe for an hour or so.

    Wonderful ambiance in a more quiet part of the neighborhood. Only had drinks but the Pimm’s cup was yummy :) our waiter was so kind. Felt like home for a minute

    LOVE the setting -- the building has a lot of history, and there is a wonderful courtyard in the back. The service is great, and the food is good. Get their Pimm's Cup.

    Ask for a Pimm's Cup, be polite, and enjoy one of the best cocktails in New Orleans. Ask for a Pimm's Rose or any other misguided, stupid or confused ordering you might as well go back to Bourbon St.

    Although the Pimm’s Cup was invented in England, the Napoleon House is credited with popularizing it in New Orleans. The bar makes theirs with Pimm’s #1, lemonade, 7-Up, and cucumber. Read more

    Great veggie sandwich. Old fashioned was delicious. Bartender had a mighty mustache. Old school Caribbean vibe. Great place. Highly recommended for locals or tourists.

    The building's history oozes from every dark corner of the bar. Go for the pedigreed Sazerac with wormwood.

    The muffuletta is great. Also enjoyed my Pimm's cup and the cheese platter. I didn't care for the jambalaya, but I find restaurants have problems getting that right.

    Shrimp remoulade, seafood gumbo, jambalaya chicken were very delicious! Must have the Gumbo and shrimp remoulade.

    The menu is classic New Orleans Creole (read: tourist-oriented) but dammit if that’s not some of the best shrimp remoulade in town. [Eater 38 Member]

    Definitely reasonable and good food! Five of us ate for around $40! Sit outside under the heaters if you can, it's great for a cool day.

    The short guy never made it, but we did thankfully. Can't think of any other time I've been to a National Historic Site and had a killer po' boy at the same time.

    Known for their warm Muffuletta sandwiches. Be sure to only get a quarter so you have room for red beans and rice. The olive salad has a bit too much celery in it but the sandwich was still great. Read more

    We always stop and get a muffuletta when I'm NOLA. We also tried the raspberry cream soda and was very pleased!

    My #1 favorite place in all the city. I like the roast beef po-boys & their just-spicy-enough Bloody Marys.

    The Englishman's Pimm's is what you're looking for. A bit more bite than the original.

    Delicious Pimm's Cup. Have your beverage and/or food in the hidden garden. Beautiful restaurant since 1797.

    Known for their Pimm's Cup. Give it a try. British Gin based liquor and lemonade, splash of lemon-lime soda and a cucumber garnishes. It's refreshing. Read more

    Do yourself a favor and sit at the bar. You get a free show from the bartenders who are decidedly foul and non-PC and, if you tip them well, they wont spit in your drinks.

    The Caesar salad is excellent. Loved the dressing & shavings of parm. Topped with giant croutons.

    Get the Pimm's Cup at the bar and the muffuletta for dinner. DELICIOUS!! Also, they don't take reservations, so plan accordingly.

    The food & drinks are great, atmosphere is what I'd expect, the service mediocre. The Muffuletta is good for sharing!

    Life-changing muffuletta with somewhat ridiculous sizes. You won't need more than a half.

    We love the Pimm’s Cups at the Napoleon House—a traditionally British cocktail served in an Italian-owned, French Quarter restaurant.

    Pimm's cup. That's all you need to know. Take it to go if you don't have time to drink it there.

    After reading all the tips, I obviously had to get a Pimm's Cup so I did but I got it to-go and it came in a little plastic souvenir cup- FTW! (And it was quite tasty)

    Great Pimm's Cup, Sazerac, Muffuletta. The patio is a nice mid-afternoon retreat.
  • Colleen N.
    I've read a lot of debate about whether a muffaletta should be served cold (a la Central Grocery) or hot, as they do it here. Order one for yourself to make your own decision.
