As expected, we had a great time and amazing food at the Jazz Sunday brunch. This is one of those unique restaurants in New Orleans that both tourists and locals respect and dine at. It was also a lively and fun atmosphere; not pretentious or snobby as one may expect at such a high caliber restaurant. We had a party... More

A beautiful historic restaurant with fabulous food! We spent our last night in New Orleans with a group of twelve friends and family and it was an epic night for our group of foodies! Everyone loved their entire meal from appetizer to gorgeous desserts! The Turtle Soup and Bread Pudding Soufflé were big hits. Definitely would return!!

NOLA has everything including some of the best restaurants in the world. High up on that list is the Commanders Palace in the Garden District, a short cab or street car ride from the Quarter. While the food is amazing, wine list superb and the ambience impeccable, what separates this restaurant from others in its category is the service. Short... More

It's a bit of a ride out from the French Quarter, but well worth it -- and if you have lots of time you can do it on the St Charles streetcar (get off at Washington Ave). Very strict dress code led me to expect a more formal atmosphere, but it's friendly and relaxed. Turtle soup the best I've ever... More

We were in New Orleans for a wedding for 4 days and this was easily our best meal. We went for lunch and were really pleased with our meal and the service. Considering the caliber of the food, it was a great value as well. We were celebrating a pre-wedding meal with the groom and our anniversary (which we informed... More

It was not as grand as I expected. The food was good but not exceptional. The bread pudding was not the best I had during my stay. The turtle soup was very good. It was too high priced for lunch.

Most people have heard of this restaurant in a large old house in the Garden District. It was founded by the matriarch of a large restaurant family, the Brennans, and is simply top notch. Up to four waiters per table, with one whose only duty is to keep water glasses filled. Superb service. While it could be very pricey, this... More

We were able to walk from our hotel to this restaurant in the Garden District. The meals were as advertised - excellent. Yes it is pricey, but we've learned you get what you pay for. My husband stated that his filet of black angus beef was the best he had ever had anywhere. I had the pecan crusted fish, which... More

We dined here with friends who raved about the Commander's Palace, prior to this dining experience. Although the service was courteous we all felt very disappointed by the lackluster waiter who either would not or could not empathize with one of our group who had special eating requirements. Nothing complex just a few tweaks to the presentation of the food,... More
