Food quality was good, especially the lobster risotto and truffle shrimp angel hair. The staffs are all polite and friendly, they have been recommending very good wines which fits into our dishes. And this is a cozy and warm place which is suitable for gathering or after work chill out. We had great time there.

Unfortunately for us, when we reached the restaurant for our 8:30 reservation (it was that late given that I was told that only the 2nd seating is available), there were no seats available for us. When you have waited til 8:30 to have dinner and you're hungry and you're anticipating to have a good dinner and this happens - disaster... More

3rd time at Napoleon and always a great experience. Great selection of French wines that you can order by the glass and in tasting portions. The place is cosy and offers outdoor seating. Food is really good. Good bread, cheese and amazing lobster risotto. Place is great with friends or romantic or for after work drinks. Will definitely go back.

One of my favorite place for food and wine in Singapore ! I have done several visits to Napoleon and it has always been a pure enjoyment. I love the quality of their food, always super tasty with French inspiration. Additionally, their selection of wine is amazing with plenty of option by the glass. On top of that, service is... More

The food is good and service staff are generally polite. But because of the tight small space in the restaurant, there is no privacy at all. The restaurant tried to accommodate most diners, but it became a situation where tables are so close to each other that you can hear each other's conversations and chairs are back to back -... More

Don't expect super good food at a wine bar but not too bad. Stick to the cold cuts and cheese appetisers. The dessert is a disaster. Good range of wine by the glass. Not too bad but the somm didn't really help much in terms of expertise and recommendation. Good value for money though.

Napoleon offers a couple of dozen wines in dispensers that allow you to buy a taste, a half glass, or a full glass. Very good for educating your palate. Prices are Singapore-expensive, unfortunately, so don't expect this to be anywhere near cheap!

Food can be served faster as we waited quite a while for the food to be served. Staff was friendly. I made advance booking but were seated outside the washroom.

We went there with a group of friends. We were looking forward to it and had expected it to be a higher tier restaurant since it was part of Palate Dining Program. But we were disappointed; particular, by the ambience. Cigarette smell from smokers outside the restaurant entrance came into the inside of the restaurant, which we informed the waiter... More

Description
Napoleon Food & Wine Bar opened its doors in Telok Ayer Street, between Raffles Place and Tajong Pagar. Its innovative concept, revolving around pairing and sharing, offers the chance to taste 32 southern European wines by the glass and pair them with the Singaporean chef's interpretation of Southern European casual cuisine. The company's proximity to French wine domains and castles makes it possible to offer great wines at wholesale prices. Whether you are a wine connoisseur or just the occasional wine lover, at Napoleon you will be able to enjoy wines at your pace and comfort, in a modern and cosy atmosphere. The idea behind the concept of Napoleon Food & Wine Bar is that buying wine should be like shopping for clothes - customers need to have the opportunity to try before committing to a purchase. Therefore Napoleon offers 32 bottles of wine – 16 red and 16 white – lined up within a row of Enomatic Wine Dispenser Machines that ease out sampling portions, a half glass or a full glass of wine if you so prefer. Underneath them, eight simple labels made it even more accessible. Unlike regular wine bars, the wines are not categorized by grape variety or region. At Napoleon the reds are categorized as ‘smooth’, ‘fruity’, ‘deep’ or ‘spicy’ while the whites are labeled as ‘dry’, ‘rich’, ‘fruity’ or ‘sweet’.Napoleon’s talented chef has created tasty dishes influenced by the best of both Southern Europe and Asia’s cuisine. Customers are encouraged to share the dishes and pair them with the wine of their choice. Mon - Fri: 11:30 am - 2:30 pm, 5:30 pm - 12:00 amSat: 5:30 pm - 12:00 am
