We had never been to New Orleans before. I reseached the city....the sights, hotels, restaurants, etc. From doing the research, it appeared that Commander's Palace was a very good and famous restaurant. It was lunch time and we had just finished touring the Lafayette Cemetery,...More

Made reservations for Sunday brunch months in advance. We got seated in the patio. It was a tad cool but they did have some heaters available. It appears they have lacked their dress code. My husband and I were dressed in a suit and dress....More

Went for their jazz brunch and was not disappointed! Excellent service and delicious options to choose from! Had the tenderloin and pecan crusted fish, bread pudding and pecan pie for dessert all made in house. Jazz band was excellent as well!

We went to Commander's to celebrate our anniversary with a special treat - it was fabulous! We had a scrumptious salad with an explosion of delightful flavors, followed by duck and seafood. Plate licking good! We splurged on a creme brulee for dessert, and it...More

Maybe an off-night, but the food we ate was overpriced and decent, but not excellent with the exception of a shrimp Tasso appetizer which was superb. We had high hopes for the 3 main courses we ordered which were all okay, but not worth the...More

Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New
Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking
streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions,
picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded
down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful
churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a
brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the
Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give

Absolutely. Sandals are fine. The website says that men should wear jackets. That is really not necessary, as long as the man wears a button down shirt. Women were wearing nice casual clothing when we were there on a... More

Commander's Palace welcomes everyone but we do have a dress code. It's a festive atmosphere! Shorts are never allowed. Inventive modern New Orleans cooking coexists with our Haute Creole. Sense the team's professional grace clothed in the warmth of the Brennan Family's brand of hospitality. From your first sip of a Sazerac to your last crumb of bread pudding soufflé, we hope you are pampered and delighted...and go ahead be a little bad...that's what living in New Orleans is all about.
