I enjoyed wonderful real food in a classically shabby real restaurant. The service was attentive, the menu had all the French traditional dishes - Chez Napoleon was such a happy find.
Great preparation of classic French entrees, including Cassolet, Sweetbreads, Kidneys,as well as more commonly available others. Appetizers are excellent, I favor the mussels.

The first sign that this restaurant would disappoint was the fact that the butter, served with bread, came in plastic containers of the kind one gets at a fast food restaurant. We opted for the prix fixe menu of the day, and found the asparagus...More
Ate here with family recently. Located in Hells Kitchen but walking distance from the theatre district, the restaurant offers 2-3 sittings for dinner. It's quite small so reservations are pretty much mandatory. The menu covers classic French dishes like canard a L'orange, steak frites, coq...More
