This was the first restaurant we visited as we had read such good reviews. We were not disappointed. The food was very good and we did have the bread pudding souffle which was lovely. Certain would eat there again.

Our family visited Commander's Palace for brunch today. As always it pleased every palate at the table. Wonderful food, excellent service and a great band performing at table side. Commander's Palace always exceeds our expectations. We highly recommend it! The turtle soup is a must.

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

They have valet if you must drive. We took the St. Charles trolley to the Garden District, but you had to walk to get to Commander's. Not a bad walk. But after a few Martini's [even without the influence of cocktails] Uber... 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.
