Thought we’d treat ourselves on our first day in NO. This place had good ratings, looked unique in pictures. But in reality it’s over rated. The turtle soup was unbelievably salty, so as other dishes, all on the salty side. Our waitress was nice to...More

Even though Commander's Palace is highly recommended, I was concerned that it would be more of a tourist trap and because of its size, it would be difficult to turn out a truly fine meal. I was so wrong! We had taken a walking tour...More

This was our second experience after our first five years ago. We are non-drinkers and felt very put off by the staff because of it. Our first experience was a lot better because the team provided us with non alcoholic alternatives. This time we felt...More

Restaurant has a more South Floridian feel. Nothing spectacular about the menu but food was good. Drinks were very good. They recommend a jacket but temperature too warm. Tables were a little to close to other diners.

I will definitely return for a great dining experience when I return to NO. The filet was one of the best I've ever tasted.

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

We only had dinner this trip but I'm sure whichever you choose, the service and the food will be impeccable. Something to consider though is what else you will be doing on the day. We chose dinner as there is a dress code... More

Yes. There are also dishes designed specifically for kids. Small filet, chicken or shrimp with a side of fries, smashed potatoes or veggies.

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.
