Our group of 6 came here for Sunday brunch during the French Quarter Fest (lots of fun btw) and all agreed this place lived up to all the hype. It is one of those places that you can tell the server to patron ratio is smaller than most restaurants. There was always someone topping off our glasses or asking if... More

The service was great, the bread and butter were great, the food was terrible. We had 2 couples in our party and decided to order the full dinner with the wine pairing, it was the worst decision ever. The wine was mediocre at best, the food was very bland, no taste at all, it resembles what I call fufu food,... More

As a Brit, I have a picture of the Deep South, the renowned Southern Hospitality and here it is!! The only way I can describe everything here is elegant. From the elegant clientele to the elegant decor!! There is a dress code but this is the sort of place you want to dress up a bit. This is a place... More

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner here with another couple and enjoyed our time. Impeccable service, a wine list that I could spend hours reading and an interesting menu with some great options. The food was very good - we had the gumbo, arugula salad, fish special and some shrimp and grits and also bread kidding to finish up. Some of... More

New Orleans has a very competitive restaurant market. Commander's Palace is at the top of the list. Great seafood & excellent salads. Do not miss their excellent food on your next trip to "the big easy"!

My friend and I had a really wonderful meal here. It starts from the charming blue and white awnings outside and location tucked away in a quiet street in the Garden District. While the restaurant is quite large, the different rooms and levels create an intimate dining space, so that you almost feel that you are being looked after in... More

We called on Monday morning and they were able to accommodate us by the afternoon. The wait staff was very attentive. Even though we were only there for lunch the portion sizes were very generous. And you can't beat the bar bill $6.00 for 4 martinis and a crescent breeze. So go for lunch and enjoy the food and the... More

I was very happy that they were able to accommodate a last minute reservation for lunch. The service both on the phone and in the restaurant is amazing. We got to walk through the kitchen to get to the other side of the restaurant which was a cool experience in itself. There is a huge outdoor seating area as well... More

They had a dress code. Twelve waiters greeted us at the door. I had the crispy fried soft shell crab. OMG, it was fabulous! Fine dining at it's best.
