Commander’s Palace is justifiably well known as one of the best places for a jazz brunch in NOLA. Everything about the restaurant is excellent. The food is superb and beautifully presented, a skilled jazz trio goes from table to table taking requests, the owner and...More

Beautiful restaurant and knowledgeable staff. Pecan encrusted fish is excellent. Cheeses picked for the cheese plate were all delicious. Recommended Chardonnay was exactly what I was looking to pair with dinner.

A venue to visit, if you seek a classical southern dining experience and ambience. Favorites from our party of 8 included: Cast Iron Duck, Turkducken Quail and above average service. Least exciting entrees: Wagyu Beef - sadly, very tough and overdone (requested medium rare) and...More

Commander's Palace is clearly a wonderful dining experience with a lot of history (definitely try to watch the Netflix documentary about Ella Brennan before going to get some additional perspective) and we very much enjoyed our dinner there recently. Cocktails and food were wonderful. We...More

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.
