We ate at the Commander's palace on a Saturday evening a week before Mardi Gras. We made reservations approximately two weeks before for a party of 6. The staff lined up to welcome us, making us feel very special. I had the garlic shrimp and Tasso. It was delicious! Two in our party had the sirloin and had compliments for... More

My husband and I and our close friends shared a wonderful wedding anniversary dinner at the legendary Commander's Palace. I don't use the term legendary lightly. Each staff member, from the moment you call for reservations until you walk out the door, contributes to an elegant yet relaxed fantastic dining experience. It's a real treat to be served in such...

If you want to try one of these famous formal old traditional French restaurants in New Orleans, this is it! The food is extraordinary! I love foie gras, have foie gras all over the world. The seared foie gras here is great, on the side is root beer with foie gras ice cream! Very creative and yummy! My boyfriend had... More

American cuisine isn't just burgers fried chicken and steak. The Commanders Palace in New Orleans is quite a good restaurant with an American twist on "formal." The ambience was very good, the food was excellent and the waiting staff were very efficient. Not too sure about the fake candles in the chandeliers though... Apparently this is a New Orleans institution... More

Finally visited the Palace after hearing much about it for years. Ordered a romaine salad to start. This seemed to be a take on a Caesar and the taste and flavors were excellent. But this proved, for me, to be the hit of the night. The entree chosen was the pecan encrusted drum. While it sounded very promising, the dish... More

We had dinner on a Saturday night. We arrived 15 minutes early for our reservation, but were seated immediately. All of the servers greeted us as we were led to our table. It was refreshing to sit at tables that are comfortably spaced. Our servers were attentive without fawning. As impressive as the service, the food was the star at... More

If you are going to splurge on your trip to NOLA this is the place to do it! Yes, it is pricey, but the food is excellent, the jazz is fun, and afterwards you can walk off all that food in Lafayette Cemetery (right across the street) or continue through the Garden District and enjoy the wonderful architectural display of...

Just had dinner there. Receptionist was great. The rest was just ok. Unbelievable extensive wine list about 3 to 4 times the actual price so $50 wine goes for about $200 and so on. The food is just ok and the place is so busy that waiters have assistants and the assistants have assistants so the service is also just... More

Your wish is my command is the kind of service you can expect to receive. My family and I (total of 5 people) went for Sunday brunch. I must emphatically say that it was our favorite dining experience in New Orleans and in many years. We were provided with their undivided attention, serenaded by their 3 piece band, and my... More

The last meal that I had of this quality was a few years ago in France. My husband and I had two different soups, entrees, and desserts. The preparation and flavor of each were memorable. My only negative comments would be that we were surprised how tired the main dining room looked for a five star restaurant. And my dessert,... More
