We had the 3 course lunch with a couple of the famous 25 cent martinis. Service and food were as wonderful as they had been in the past. A visit to Commander's is always on my must-do list when visiting New Orleans and this time I was with three friends who had never experienced lunch at Commander's before. I think... More

Stepping into Commander's Palace is truly like stepping back in time, old world charm and Southern hospitality. The service is superb, the waiters and bus boys are all equally interested in you having the best experience ever and they know their craft. My waiter misunderstood a request (my accent and his very different) and brought me the wrong thing, he... More

Went there with two girlfriends on a "girls long weekend" trip. The wine selections were plentiful and the food was delicious! Between the three of us we covered the food categories! Crab appetizers, steak, shrimp and chicken for dinner - all fabulous. The service was very attentive! Any waiter that came through was watching out for anyone that looked like... More

We were so looking forward to experiencing the legendary Commander's Palace on our trip to New Orleans. We cabbed it out there in an absolute deluge, and our cabbie noticed that the stop lights were out a few blocks before we got there. Then we noticed that all of the lights were out. Undeterred, we continued on to the restaurant... More

The service...amazing. The food soooo wonderful. Qual, turtle soup, strawberry salad are not to be missed. And the bread pudding soufflé.... To die for! Best dessert ever. Compared to NYC the prices are NOTHING for a meal and experience this good.

We recently visited Commander's for my wife's birthday. We went on for Saturday brunch and had a table of 9 and it was as good as I remember when I ate there almost 15 years ago. The service was impeccable and each course was delicious. The Grilled Crawfish and 5 hour Egg Appetizer was a highlight but each dish had... More

Food was great, service was wonderful. Wanted to go for Sunday brunch, but was booked. Went for lunch. Had the 25 cent martinis which was fun. Great 2 and 3 course specials. Would recommend making a reservation in advance. Very busy. Well worth it, definitely a must while in New Orleans.l

Made reservations for lunch during our visit to NO as we wanted to ensure we had the opportunity to lunch at this fine restaurant. We were seated promptly upon arrival. The room we were seated in was bright and airy. You have several options for lunch; a la carte, and a 3-course and 2-course set lunch. My husband had the... More

We went there as our splurge meal in New Orleans and were glad we did. We both got the three course meal - the strawberry salad was amazing and I'm not a salad person. My husband had turtle soup finished with dry sherry which was better than other turtle soups he tried in NO and the quail stuffed with boudin... More

We dined at Commander's Palace this past week for my daughter's 25th birthday. From the moment we walked in the door, we felt like honored guests in someone's household. We were greeted by every staff member we saw, and all seemed to know it was her birthday. No detail was missed, right down to the balloons on our table being... More
