Commander's Palace welcomes everyone but we do have a dress code. It's a festive atmosphere! Shorts are never allowed. Inventive modern New Orleans cooking coexists with our Haute Creole. Sense the team's professional grace clothed in the warmth of the Brennan Family's brand of hospitality. From your first sip of a Sazerac to your last crumb of bread pudding soufflé, we hope you are pampered and delighted...and go ahead be a little bad...that's what living in New Orleans is all about.

This is THE restaurant of Ñew Orleans, EVERYTHING is WONDERFUL,but the crab cakes are to die for! The atmosphere elegant and it is in uptown NOĽA. Don't miss it! It is an Old NOLA FAMILY that operates it. You won'the need to remember the name,just tell anyone, you were UPTOWN.

I had read so many great things about Commander's Palace in New Orleans and a week ago I got the chance to visit with friends. Right between gardens upon gardens this restaurant is a sight to behold. We were directed to the second floor by the hostess, which through crystal windows you could appreciate the trees (that seemed manicured) that... More

I’ve heard many great things about Commander’s Palace and was able to visit here during my recent trip to NOLA. I must admit, as I was reading over the menu I wasn’t impressed. After leaving, CP has become one of my top 3 restaurants that I really enjoy in NOLA. All of the staff is very friendly and accommodating. I’m... More

Highly overrated, the menu was just too much of too many things on one plate. What happened to good ole eggs Benedict, or more of a brunch, not such heavy foods. The service was excellent, wait staff always in attendance without being overbearing.

We travel to New Orleans several times a year and make sure we always have reservations at Commander's. Last month we traveled from Louisville to New Orleans just to eat there for my birthday. They made me feel so special and the food is always excellent. The ambiance is magical!

Went to Commander's Palace while vacationing in NOLA in July 2015. Had a great time. The atmosphere was grandiose and brought home my belief that Nola isn't just about eating, but the experience that comes with it. Bands play (not noisily) at your table and others around you while you eat. The food is AMAZING. in the photos you'll see... More

Superb service - complete with napkins based on your attire, synchronized delivery of entrees, etc. Our food was also amazing. I started with the trio of soups and had the soft shell crab entrée. The bread pudding soufflé was to die for - get it! We sat in the garden room, which was gorgeous. Dining here was a treat!
