Yesterday I was at Sunday jazz brunch in the Garden Room..Lot of peeps really dressed up. Sport shirt, nice dress fine. Wow, I got a bit teary, must admit. Nostalgia for folks who love, loved jazz, particularly my Dad who played some jazz trumpet in our living room. The combo of guitar, bass, and trumpet went from table to table... More

We had a party of six celebrating two birthdays for the Jazz Brunch. The service was impeccable; something you just don't see much anymore. Incredibly attentive wait staff was prepared to help with food and drink selections and any special needs. They work as a team and serve all courses simultaneously! We ordered a variety of seafood (shrimp and grits... More

Upon entering this lovely restaurant, we were warmly greeted by the staff. The service was excellent. For appetizer, we had the cast iron seared foie gras and the turtle soup. For entrees, we ordered the white truffle & spring mushroom arancini and the pecan crusted gulf fish. We thoroughly enjoyed all our dishes. The flavors were rich and full. When... More

This place is incredible. The people watching alone is amazing, and add incredible food on top of that....just phenomenal. My husband and I went for lunch and the menu is superb. We loved everything we got, couldn't complain about a single thing. The service was outrageously good: as in, the ice in our glasses melted too much so we were... More

This place is advertised as one of the best restaurants in New Orleans - but honestly - we were really disappointed. The service is great but the food was just ok! We did all enjoy the Autumn Salad. My husbands red snapper was just ok, and the only vegetarian option was the mushroom risotto. The fact that there were no... More

It really is. Perhaps more pricey than I expected, but the food and service were top shelf. You won't be sorry. I was here 40 years ago and it was great then. I didn't expect it to be as good, but it was better. Excellent. An evening well spent, even if you had to take a $20 taxi to get... More

With the reputatIon this restaurant has, I don't need to say much. The quail was great as was the snapper. My favorite part was the turtle soup though - different taste but very, very good! Make a reservation well in advance.

Of all the meals we had in our recent trip to New Orleans, Commander's Palace was far and away the best. Their service is second to none, while the food is outstanding. The lunch is an incredible value. Martinis (.25), gumbo, entree, desert and coffee for under $30/pp. Must haves: gumbo, pork belly & oyster, shrimp and grits, souffle bread... More

It's a classic New Orleans restaurant that needs to be somewhere on your list of "gotta get there"s. I think, these days, lunch does the trick. And they have a great lunch deal on martinis, at 1950s prices. We had a great salad, awesome turtle soup, and a terrific shrimp dish, We also had gumbo (not enough rice for me)... More
