Chez Napoleon - anyone?

Hi - i've lived in Hell's Kitchen for over 6 yrs and have passed this interesting little french restaurant many times, yet never tried it. Has anyone been to Chez Napoleon on 50th and 9th?

  1. Though it's been on my "go to" list for a long time, I've never managed to eat at Chez Napoleon because I most often go to the theater on Sunday, and they are closed that day. :-(

    I did a search and found one thread that included a positive comment in May of this year: Other threads dating further back are all positive as well.

    1. A close friend of mine goes there for her birthday every year. I've been once and thought it was very good. Cozy atmosphere, good food, and reasonable prices.

      1. I like it alot. Been eating there for years.

        1. I've been once and was utterly charmed by the place. The food was definitely good, although nothing groundbreaking. The service was terrific!!!! They have a good price fix deal as well.

          1. IMO this place's atmosphere is pretty authenticly French (maybe the older French waitresses contribute to this.) If you seat in the second room (space is u-shaped) it's like being in a small Parisian bistro.

            The food is very reliable, not mind-blowing, but pretty solid.
            The prix-fix makes it quite affordable too.
