Loomed NOLA (my favourite textiles shop) recommended this restaurant for dinner. As a single, sometimes restaurants don't always give you the same service/due attention that a larger parter might receive, but that certainly wasn't the case here. I was seated in the garden area (which seemed to me the best seats in the restaurant). Now that all aside ... WOW!... More

As foodies, we are weary of going to places that have so much hype, since they usually disappoint. That being said, we felt it was our foodie duty to have a meal at Commander's Palace on our first visit to NOLA. Since it's a fairly pricey place, we thought that brunch was the best bang for our buck. We LOVE... More

I just got back from New Orleans. This city is very well-known for cuisine and there is a lot of choice there. I decided to try the legendary Commander's Palace but was concerned that there was too much hype. I was delighted to have one of the best dining experiences I ever had. The ambiance is fantastic and the food... More

My wife and I went to Commander's for a lunch on a Friday afternoon. The lunch menu was very reasonably priced and I thought they had a wide variety to choose from. Can't beat the 25 cent martinis either. There were several birthday parties seated around us, so it was a fun atmosphere. Service was prompt - no complaints there.... More

We went to weekend brunch at the Commander's Palace and it was beyond awesome! The ambiance is beautiful and from the moment we stepped into the restaurant, all the staff were friendly and personable. Everyone wished us a happy anniversary as we arrived and again as we left. (made res on Open Table, and put that info on there), The... More

Recently went to Commander’s for my birthday dinner. Service was excellent and atmosphere was wonderful in the downstairs dining rooms. Most of the food was really good except I think my veal chop could have had more seasoning but that could just be me my palate. Have not been there in 15 years and it was better than I remember!

Have the Veal. I know it is pricey, but if you love beef, you will LOVE the veal. Everything here is wonderful and if you do not try the Banana's Foster, you are out of your mind. Make sure you wear a jacket and tie for men, and dress casual or better for women.
