I was there with a small group of people and enjoyed both the service and the food. It was on a Tuesday night and it was not as crowded as it might be on a Sunday. Lovely, I would go there again.

We had an excellent dinner. The service is always impressive. I have had lunch and weekend brunch here many times. This was my first dinner and I would be happy to go again.

Wonderful experience. Food and service was great. Turtle soup was incredible. Shrimp and grits delicious. Loved the bread pudding souffle. Will definitely go again!

As a resident of New Orleans I must admit Commander's is one of those restaurants I might take for granted and I regret even overlook when dinning out but fortunately we decided to have dinner there with friends recently and I was reminded why it consistently tops the review charts. At Commander's the service is impeccable, like a well choreographed... More

While we were in New Orleans we had lunch at Commander's Palace. I've been wanting to go here forever after seeing it on TV and hearing people talk about it. We took a cab from the French Quarter to the Garden District for our lunch reservation. We were met at the door and immediately welcomed when we walked in. We... More

The Brennan family's flagship restaurant. I have lived 5 blocks away for 18 years. We go for special occasions. Commanders is a major part of the Garden District community, hosting the neighborhood association's annual fundraiser. Master chefs Paul Prudhomme, Emeril Lagasse and more made their bones here. The Sunday brunch is a bucket lister - roving jazz trios and food... More

Just a classic New Orleans restaurant. Great service and great food. Really no point in saying anything else. For your "best bet on a budget" go for lunch. All the experience at a fraction of the cost. They have a great three course lunch menu with several selections for around $20. At lunch they also have martini's and champagne for... More

Had lunch here recently for the first time. I was excited to go because of all the things I have heard about it. The restaurant is beautiful, the wait staff exceptional, but the food was way below my standards of a 5 Star restaurant. This is one restaurant that I believe you are paying for the atmosphere, presentation of food... More

Read all the reviews and make your own decision. After 30 years of dinning out at excellent restaurants I've come to the conclusion that less is best. The service is great. The restaurant is very nice. But the food is just good. There are some things that are very good; the turtle soup, the foie gras, the bread pudding soufflé.... More

Everone told us that we had to go to Comander's Palace when in New Orleans. We went for Sunday Brunch, which was nice, but this was hardly a memorable New Orleans experience. It was extremely noisy (and I don't mean the strolling musicians). There were a lot of kids and there were balloons on all the tables, definitely killing the... More
