Napoleon House offers a prime, historic French Quarter setting, Chef Chris Montero’s acclaimed classic New Orleans cuisine, caring service and heartfelt hospitality. Our ambition is to deliver a very special, one-of-a-kind event that will charm your guests and reflect your palate, theme and budget.
Constructed in the late 1700’s; owned and operated by the Impastato family of New Orleans for 101 years and Ralph Brennan since May of 2015, the Napoleon House (named for the exiled French Emperor who was offered the opportunity to take up residence) suspends you in time. It’s authentic exterior, deeply patinated walls, heart of pine floors, sunken cypress doors, and luminous photography exudes the European charm that begets civilized eating and drinking.
The upstairs private rooms boast glittering custom chandeliers, antiqued cypress wood mantles, heirloom silk tapestry drapes and balcony access with breathtaking views of the French Quarter.
Known internationally for our fabled Pimm’s Cup, a gin-based aperitif mixed with fresh lemonade, 7 Up and a sliver of cucumber, and our quintessential Muffuletta sandwich, the Napoleon House is the ideal destination for those with a bold palate and a penchant for the intersection of history and hospitality.
We can accommodate a wedding reception or rehearsal dinner in the many spaces in the Napoleon House, this space can hold up to 250 reception style. The Rosa and Pietro Rooms on the second floor also have two fabulous balconies. Please note that these rooms unfortunately do not accommodate handicap accessibility.
Our breathtaking courtyard is used for smaller ceremonies!

We had such a wonderful experience planning our rehearsal dinner here. Beth and Alex were absolutely amazing. The food was delicious and it all ran so smoothly with very little micromanaging on their part. They let us do our thing and asked the perfect amount of questions that things went off without a hitch. They even went out of their way to help us grab some last minute easels that we needed for the tables. This restaurant goes above and beyond!Sent on 06/04/2019

I chose Napoleon House for our reception, and I would highly recommend this venue to any bride who wants a truly unique, gorgeous, and flawless reception. My wedding coordinator was Alex, who as a bride coming from out of state, was impeccable! She answered all of my questions promptly and professionally and really made the whole experience stress-free and absolutely perfect. The staff on site for the night of was also so helpful and kind, thank you Jen!! Food was amazing, our guests are still raving about the food options and the bar!

Perfect venue with amazing service
We loved Napoleon House and the team there make it so special. If you are looking for a venue with excellent service, amazing food and having a stress free event, look no further. Honestly Beth and Alex are amazing. A lot of venues we saw are quite prescriptive on how events run and are set up, but they were super flexible at the Napoleon House and really let you bring your vision to life. We even extended our reception by 1 hour the week of the wedding and they just easily made the changes. Would definitely recommend! Thank you to Napoleon House and team for an awesome wedding!Sent on 04/30/2019
