A classy restaurant (formal wear required) with excellent food (try turtle soup and definitively do not miss the bread pudding) at reasonable prices. This is a place to spend a great evening in New Orleans. Do not forget to reserve in advance.

We had a lovely meal here and would recommend it to anyone looking to treat yourselves. The wine recommendations were well suited to the food, the staff were courteous and helpful, the surroundings lovely - we sat in the courtyard.

This is always a treat to come here. Food is absolutely superb. I'm not a fan of bread pudding, but I almost want to lick the bowl when I order it here. Service is impeccable.

This was one of the best meals I have had in the USA. All dishes delicious; service from our head waiter Todd excellent. I was expecting it to be very expensive and perhaps rather snooty: It was neither.

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

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.
