    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!

    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.

    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 $

    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

    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

    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.

    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

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

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

    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.

    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]

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

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

    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.

    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.

    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

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

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

    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.

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

    A local institution, this shabbily elegant restaurant and bar with a Spanish-style courtyard is known for its Pimm's Cups and muffuletta sandwiches.

    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)

    The Pimms Cup is famous. And the Sazerac is legend. Excellent muffuletta and tasty gumbo.

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

    The muffeletta, poboys, pimps cup and spinach and artichoke dip are all awesome! Jordan is a fantastic waiter!

    Get a Sazerac or a Pimm's cup and enjoy it in the beautiful, shaded courtyard on a sunny day.

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

    Life-changing muffuletta with somewhat ridiculous sizes. You won't need more than a half.
  • Amanda S.
    I dream about the Pimms Cup and muffuletta sandwich! Sit in the courtyard and enjoy!

    Pimm for 1 is in a collins glass which you can purchase. Primms for 2 is a larger glass that is great for beer. Nice souvenir.

    The sevice is so-so, but the food and drink more than make up for it. Don't leave without trying a Pimm's Cup!

    They sell more Pimm's Cups than anyone in the US. Get one. Then get one more. Then get one in a to-go.

    Get the bruschetta!! And request a table on the patio

    Go to the patio and have a pimms cup! Also it's hard to find an outlet if you want to charge your phone.

    Stick to the NOLA classics: jambalaya and muffuletta with a Pimms Cup, to stay safe on menu.

    If you go for the Sazerac, you gotta top it with Absinthe. So good.

    It was alright. Definitely don't go in a big group. They don't do separate checks. You get one refill on soft drinks only if you buy food. Lettuce and tomato is extra on a po boy. It was just alright.
