Last day of our meeting at NOLA. Most of my friends left the city for Home. While walking out the convention center, decided to stop at the information center at the last moment. I asked the elderly lady at the desk for some places to...More

Party of four family members. Great service. Food was amazing. Three of us had the filet and it was outstanding. Chopped salad was great also.

We had great waiters who were happy to describe the menu to any amount of details. Every dish looked great and tasted equally as good. This was for a special Birthday dinner and we were glad we chose this place.

Their online reservation is horrible, they even started that on the website, but why put up a not working online reservation! Called them, left a message, but they don't return your call until the next day. Why bother!!!

While eating in the courtyard, try and spot any celebrity. Movies stars and actors love dining there. First time I actually got to meet Sandra Bullock, Brad Pitt and John Goodman. All of whom live in NOLA!

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 have been there numerous times and I can not say I have ever seen an outside patio, but knowing the restaurant I would say no.

No. I believe their dress code requests trousers and collared shirt. I did see men without jackets at lunch.

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.
