  • Chez Napoleon is one of NYT restaurant critic Sam Siftons 50 favorite NYC restaurants. To see the full list, get The Scoop iPhone app, an inside guide to New York:
  • Duck confit is out of this world! Escargots are excellent too. Nom nom!
  • Get the Orange Duck! End of story. Duck. Period.
  • This unassuming gem will serve you one of the best meals of your life. Decently priced, friendly, and memorable. Start with the baked mussels and go from there. Bon Appetit!
  • The confit canard was amazing! I love the ambience of this place
  • Very cool restaurant
  • Scallops are essentially Mac n cheese. But with scallops. And butter. Get it
  • Great food, atmosphere, and service!
  • Absolutely no! I am not a picky eater and really pretty much like everything, the food is here was awful. The servers are lovely but had a bad stomach after eating here. :(
  • Very interesting place. A total time warp back to the 60's. But the food was amazing :) Go there! I recommend the sirloin steak and French onion soup. Sweet staff
  • This place just exudes charm, the lovely French family that runs it is friendly, funny and make it feel like home. Food is superb, try the escargot, rabbit, duck and cassoulet and bouillabaisse
  • I feel like I'm in France!
  • Moderate good French food. Been around for years
  • Amazing EscarNOOOOOOOOOse , and good duck and stews.
  • Such a cozy atmosphere. I loved the staff and the food was so flavorful. Go for the escargot!
  • The braised wild boar stew in red wine sauce is fantastic, as is the cherries jubilee, flambed tableside.
  • Overpriced, more of a diner than a real restaurant. French? May e the waiter saying voila and few orher words was the most french thing of the place. People recomend duck...they serve it with fries!
  • Get rich French cuisine from this family-run bistro on 50th Street. Try the tender duck dishes, thick lamb and pork cuts, and dont skimp on the dessert.
  • Food was bad. Dessert was okay. Do not recommend.
