I have been to this place a number of times, and I must say that the quality of the food has improved. The risotto was very delicious, and so was the fish.

Waiter got our wine orders wrong. I ordered a syrah and got a melbac and it took over 30min for us to get our wines. Had to ask 2 waiters. For 6 glasses of reds and roses we paid 158$. Really expensive for what it...is. We were also seated literally right next to the toilet. Owner was relatively friendly though.More

A French restaurant located close to the Amoy food centre. Deco within the restaurant was warm and charming. I wanted the burrata salad but was not available and chose the cold cut platter instead for my entree. As for the mains, I ordered the pan...fried duck breast. The duck breast was done to perfection and it went well with the sour cabbage that came along with it. Perfect balance of different tastes on one plate.More

We were able to book a last minute dinner last Friday. We were seated at a high chair just outside the door but I can't complain (my friend does, he was directly on the spotlight so it was warm) We ordered beef tartare, steak, and...risotto - all of which was pretty good. we also had a pretty good wine recommended to us. It was a nice experience for us, no issues on the service.More

So it was our first time at Napoleon, we wanted something really light and ordered something off the menu, wings and nachos but we're told by the manager/waiter this is a French restaurant and they don't serve such food. Hmm OK so I am still...wondering what did he mean by “such" food. Not even to mention that it was hard to get their attention to take our orders. they seem busy. We felt so unwelcomed. At the end of the evening we were greeted with a cake corkage charge of $20. Yes, we did bring our own cake there but we were not informed at all there will be a charge. The manager told us "did you ask?", "do u mean that you can just bring your food to restaurants without asking the staff". oh well I am really speechless with the attitude. Anyway thank you for waiving the cake corkage charge after lecturing your customers. We will not be back.More

We had a mixed plate of cheese and charcuterie with Sauternes wine that was very good. The atmospher is very nice and the French owner very friendly as it is pleasure to be able to speak French.

Napoleon has always been a cozy French bistro. Friendly French owners/managers, nice interior and great wines. The food was not that special. That has changed. A new young female chef is helming the kitchen and brings out fantastic food. It is still autentic French, but...the quality is superb. We had the seared scallops and tuna tartar as appitizer. Great, fresh taste and beautiful broth. The Duck was wonderfull juicy and crispy on the outside. The lamb was pink and came witha nice sauce. Great job.More

Restaurant was quite packed and we were seated at a tall table near the door. Not exactly the best spot to see everyone's temperature being taken, but received reasonable amount of attention from wait staff. The steak was well seasoned and tender. Fries were of...the right crisp. Wine-food pairing were great! Quite stuffed even though it was merely three course set.More

This is my 1st visit appalled by the service! Asked waiter for another plate of butter olive oil n balsamic vinegar and he just told my brother -in -law finish that plate 1st! Hey there were 4 of us and hr said ph it is...meant to be shared. But I told him I have to stretch over to get it and he said meant to be placed in the muddle of the table I domt buy that because there were 2 seperate tables joined tog. M besides tte butter was about to be used up. Came back with another plate no apologies for tardy comment then said lady now you dont have to stretch😡 Told another guy and his reply was we are cutting cost hey how much does a small plate like that cost! Food was only so so only dessert was good. No more visit to this place!More
