This was my first visit to Commander's Palace. Frankly, I was expecting it to be pretentious and overpriced. I only went because my wife has commented a number of times that she would like to try it. I quickly learned that my impressions were so incredibly wrong. The service was attentive, yet not overbearing. The staff was extremely friendly, yet... More

We ate here for my friends birthday. It is very nice and everyone is dressed nice. The food and service are close to perfect. There is a jazz band playing softly. But... It is pricey.

Great Service! A table for eight served at exactly the same time. Great Food, I had the soft shelled crab and it was excellent. A little pricey for me but worth it for a one time experience.

Service was great - from the minute you walk in the door it's clear the staff wants you to enjoy yourself and have fun. Mary our waiter was great - took care of a cocktail that was too sweet and she was on top of things all night. The space itself is unknown still: we were tucked around the corner... More

The food and service are excellent. At lunch, be sure to enjoy the 25 cent martinis! Sunday jazz brunches are especially fun.

This was our first meal on our trip to New Orleans --- we stopped in for Sunday brunch which I'm pleased to report lasts most of the day! The restaurant was full of patrons at 1:30 pm. The actual bar was a bit chaotic as jammed in customers called out drink orders. The patio area easily accommodated the waiting crowd.... More

I think you coul dtravel accross country just to dine at the Commander's Palace and still call it worth while. I have never missed eating at the Commander's Palace in the six times I've visited NOLA and each time seems to be better than the last. I always brag to my friends about the "soup trio" and I learned that... More

Guys The Commanders is simply an American treasure, a family business that embodies classic New Orleans cuisine while embracing new trends. I'm not a turtle soup fan so I lean towards the oysters with pork belly, the shrimp henican, and the strawberry salad. That oyster dish is killer. For entrees I lean on the seared fish or shrimp, the steak... More

First there is the location.Away from the French Quarter and located in the Garden District.this place is so New Orleans.We dined in the Garden Room(my favorite).Commander's personalizes your experience,always referring to you by name. The food is outstanding,the turtle soup with sherry has such a unique creole taste. Our party of four had fish,meat medley,and even our vegetarian diner commented... More

This restaurant is right across the street from a cemetery which I found interesting. It is an old converted mansion and you eat in the various rooms. The service was spectacular the food great and the environment romantic
