What is there left to say? If you’re in New Orleans for Mardi Gras, you have to eat at least one meal at Commander’s Palace. I think there may even be a law to that effect. If not, there should be. Beautiful, gracious old south...More

On a vacation that was planned solely for eating, this was the hi-light of our trip. Not only was the food to die for, but the service was spot on and impeccable. This is not to be missed in any trip to NOLA.

Very nice lunch in the courtyard. $.25 martinis with an entree. Good food, service, atmosphere. Worth the trolley ride to the garden district.

Great service and food. The band did not play much during our jazz brunch and the bass player seemed bored and was sometimes tuning his instrument during songs.

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.
