We had Saturday brunch reservations that had to be booked through the phone even though their website has a online reservation page. Their website said there was no availability but when I called they had several time options open. We arrived at 11:30am, and parked on the street.
The hostess took us through the kitchen to get to our table. Not many places let you see their kitchen!
I tried the Bloody Mary where they pour the vodka in at the table for $7.25. My boyfriend had a diet coke; for $3.00 they refilled his drink several times. For appetizers I had the Bacon and Eggs which was the best egg I ever ate! My boyfriend had the Gumbo, which was yummy. For the entrees we had the Banana Foster's Pancakes and Candy Apple Lacquered Quail. Both delicious! For dessert, we weren't thinking and both ordered the Creole Bread Pudding Soufflé, which was good. My boyfriend had a coffee for $3.00, which was pretty strong.
The Jazz Band was excellent. They go around to every table and ask you for your request.
Amazing food and experience (jazz music) for a great price. For two persons, subtotal: $86.25 + tax: $8.40 = $94.65 before tip. I think that's very reasonable for the service, food, and experience that we had. We left a little after 1:00pm, so allow at least an hour and a half for brunch.
Commander's Palace is an amazing place, can't wait to go back to New Orleans and have another meal here!
