Commander's Palace is one of the finest restaurants you will ever encounter.
We made reservations for a Saturday night at 7 PM during the height of Mardi Gras several months in advance. That day, it became apparent that we were running late, so I made a call to the restaurant and they graciously moved our reservation to 8:45 PM.
Upon arriving, we were immediately greeted by the host and hostess, a friendly sincere greeting that made you feel very welcomed. We were shown to our table on the second floor.
What makes Commander's so special? The service is professional without being pretentious, friendly without being phony. You take a sip or two from your water glass, and a server is there to fill your glass. You drink half of your water, and a server is there to trade your glass with a fresh full glass of water.
We ordered our food, and everything we were served was exquisitely prepared with plenty of Creole taste. The presentation again is very professional, as meals are placed at the table at precisely the same time. Next to us was a table with 7 people seated. When their dinners arrived, there was enough wait staff at their table to be able to place each of the 7 plates onto their table again at precisely the same time.
For dessert, we enjoyed the Creole Bread Pudding Souffle. This was the sweetest, tastiest souffle that I ever had the enjoyment of eating.
Impeccable food and service, reasonable prices, wonderful ambiance. The best in New Orleans.
