This restaurant was so much fun! The service was wonderful, our food was delicious and the setting was so pretty. We really enjoyed ourselves and would definitely recommend it to others.

This was my first visit to Commander's Palace and it won't be my last. We were in NOLA for a long weekend for a friend's 40th birthday and we had a special dinner planned. There is a dress code, which fits this upscale eatery. We...More

We went for the jazz brunch on the weekend. This may not be the best way to experience the food at Commander's Palace, given the limited/brunch menu. Service is impeccable. Dishes were competently made, with very large portions.

The ambiance and service heighten the wonderfully decadent jazz brunch. We sampled most of the menu between the 7 of us and every dish was wonderful. The banana foster (not on the official menu) is a fun table side experience to watch.

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.
