Very expensive but nice to do once. Terrible bloody Marys turtle soup was just ok. So loud upstairs with huge tables of celebrators. I doubt I would return.

Yes EVER ! I visited the Garden District and saw this restaurant, which someone who lived in New Orleans had recommended. I was there for the Sunday Jazz brunch. You immediately notice the décor of the restaurant, including balloons at every table. The staff is very efficient and friendly and well dressed. They have 3 course meals. I had the... More

Go with local fare and leave room for a soufflé for desert. Shrimp etouphe was sublime. Lunchtime 25 cent cocktails are an unusual but welcome touch. Meander the garden district after your meal.

Jazz brunch was recommended to us by a friend and it certainly met all expectations. Service was impeccable and the food simply stunning. We enjoyed the lamb soup, citrus salad for appetizers. Then both of us wanted breakfast fare so he got the eggs Benedict and I got Barcelona style eggs. Absolutely fabulous. The menu comes with a price for... More

We celebrated my mom's birthday. The staff was amazing and the food was great. It's also an experience to come here. It was my first time and I don't want to give away too much, but it was worth every penny we spent on dinner!

Awesome food! I have food allergies and my waiter was great to help with my ability to order safely, even came back to me after the chef advised that the recipe did include food allergies, helped with alternate selections and the chef even came up with an entrée perfect for me. And of course it was DELICIOUS!!

This was my second time eating here and I of course go for lunch as they have 25 cent martinis, but I digress. If you want true New Orleans food and southern hospitality you eat here. The staff are impeccable and the food will cause you to lick your plate in public. Everything is good so order whatever you fancy.... More

Commander's was highly recommended by everyone and was my least favorite of all the meals experienced over the weekend. There were 6 of us and we had brunch on Saturday. We were seated immediately and had a beautiful table upstairs. The service was exceptional and it looked like there was more wait staff than diners. We never had to wait... More

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.

Staying in Garden District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
