Very nice southern style restaurant

We decided to try this restaurant that I had heard a lot about. It is in the Garden District, and has a beautiful interior. The menu seemed limited to me. We went to Galatoire's the night before and I liked their menu better. We had wine- the wine list was very good. We (except me) shared turtle... read more

Catch the streetcar and go the Palace for lunch. Love the $.25 martinis and the food is to die for. This is more about the experience, should do it at least once. Got the same seat as before on the second floor,

You CANNOT visit New Orleans as a foodie and FAIL to visit this restaurant. It is clearly one of the best in the country and the best in New Orleans fine dining. It combines Acadian, Cajun, Creole French in gourmet fashion with dishes that will pique your interest and satisfy your taste buds. The waitstaff is the epitome of class... More

This is a perfect place to try authentic Cajun / Creole food in a fine dining atmosphere. The people are generally warm, friendly, and hospitable which made for a great start in our recent weekend trip to NOLA.

I had heard of The Commander's Palace and how wonderful it was, but that pales in comparison to the real experience. The wait staff truly does have a well planned and executed 'dance' of service. The meal was the best I have ever had! truly a must!

So, everyone knows that Commanders Palace is the best restaurant in New Orleans. That said I didn't expect it to be as good as it actually was. The waiters here are the best, they treat you like royalty. Everything is choreographed to perfection. We did the chefs playground menu, which seamed like about 10 courses, but was I think 6...

Lunch at Commander's Palace is so special. Elegant setting, beyond wonderful service, lovely food and a place that still understands the importance of quiet eating. Have wanted to dine there for years and finally had the time. A really special experience.

We went for Sunday Brunch, a 3 course prix fixe meal. Each of the 4 of us ordered something different, so we could taste test, and man, EVERYTHING we tried was absolutely scrumptious.

Did a walking tour of the graveyard. The guide recommended commanders palace just opposite. Sort of strange looking from the outside as you can't see in... We thought it was empty. That all changed when we went in. Top class service and food. $20 lunch and 25 cent cocktails ( limit of 3 unfortunately ..) the fresh bread mimi loaf... More
