Food heaven & customer services at its highest

It's been awhile where I've been go a place where the food and the customer service is impeccable. This restaurant is at the highest on the restaurant pedestal. They deserve a "A+++" Make sure you get the Turtle soup. Best decision you will ever make in New Orleans.

So I am a little at odds with about thirty five hundred other reviews but this is not my favorite Nola restaurant. I've only been here twice for dinner. The fist time was in summer and we had a spectacular server and very good food. The food is not overpriced but the wine may be. It is a very large... More

We had reservations in advance, and service was prompt and attentive, although surprisingly less professional then I would have expected for the high level status of the restaurant. Perhaps they match service to the (assumed?) attitude of the guests as they arrive? Or the waiter could tell that we're reasonably laid back travelers, and didn't need a red carpet rolled... More

We went to Commanders Palace to celebrate my birthday. The Jazz Brunch had a perfectly festive atmosphere with live music, balloons, and fancy cocktails. The menu selections were interesting with a New Orleans flair, the meals were delicious. The wait staff was attentive and perfect. We had to walk through the kitchen to get to our table in a separate... More

We enjoyed our romantic dinner immensely. The food was wonderful beyond description (DO NOT miss out on the bread pudding soufflé!). The service was impeccable. Our wait staff (Chad, David and Megan) made sure we were well cared for without being the least bit intrusive. Can't wait to go back.

We went for their very reasonably priced lunch. I couldn't believe that this restaurant could live up to it's reputation. The service was amazing, they changed our water glasses before the main course arrived. The entrees arrived beautifully presented, everything was delicious. We were encouraged to tour the kitchen and gardens after our meal.

Frankly speaking, Commander's Palace exceed my expectations, I chose this restaurant based on trip Advisor rating, we went there to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and dinner was so good, my wife and friends were impressed about the flavors and presentation of all dishes, everything was perfectly cooked and service was great !!

Everything was wonderfully flavored. We had the three soups trio, that was maybe the best thing of the night! I had never had turtle soup and it was delicious. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, not stuffy for a high end restaurant. Service was excellent.
