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.

The staff were friendly and welcoming. The food was delicious. I will be eating here again on my next trip to New Orleans. Reservations are needed, as last year when we tried to go there, they were booked solid.

Wonderful dinner with attentive service. Don't wear jeans. I did and my companion told me that they eyed me, but I guess the rest of my outfit was dressy enough that they overlooked them!

The food was amzing but the service is what blew me away. The servers here work as a team and every need is met without being intruding. We did the 3 course dinner. We both started with the turtle soup which was to die for! Next I had the whole fish and the hubby had the steak. I could have... More

Visiting this revered New Orleans restaurant was a priority for my trip. The ambiance is everything you would expect. My dinner was very good, but nothing to wow you. Everything was prepared perfectly and tasty but nothing unexpected. Service was attentive and pleasant.

This is one restaurant not to be missed when visiting New Orleans! The food was excellent, the service superb and the entire visit was an experience. Men must wear a jacket, but they do let you in with a collared shirt if you don't have one most nights. There are so many good things on the menu, it's hard to... More

I made the reservations for 4 of us in the Garden Room for lunch to celebrate a friends birthday. I wanted a welcoming light atmosphere, excellent service, delicious food, constantly filled water and iced tea, and a place that was not too loud to carry on a conversation. As soon as we drove up, the valet cheerfully, took the car... More

My wife and I dine here everytime we visit new orleans. It's a highlight of our frequent visits to the Queen City. We've dined at several different times. Regardless if we're the first diners of the night, or the last seated we always feel welcomed. Oh, the food is fantasic

Literally one of the best meals I have ever eaten! I had the three-course selection for dinner (only about $40), which included gumbo, steak, and the incredible bread pudding soufflé. Yum! Definitely make sure you get this soufflé as this is something Commander's is known for. Tour guides also recommended going here for lunch or brunch as they serve $.25... More

I very much enjoyed Commanders Palace. To start off with great valet parking, pulled up and someone immediately opening the door. Great atmosphere for a romantic evening. Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent food and great wine. Very nice selection.
