A tasty Creole dinner with a classy ambiance. The cocktails, food, and service were excellent. Don't skip dessert! Make sure to make a reservation as soon as you can. Apparently they have a great happy hour as well.

Hands down, one of the best restaurants in NOLA which makes it a magnet for locals and tourists alike. That being said, make sure you make a reservation well in advance of your visit. The ambiance gives you an air of southern fine dining and there's a dress code (business casual at lunch, jacket and tie for the gentlemen at dinner). Despite the air, the service is not stuffy. The food is pricey but well worth what you pay for. The menu changes often, so be aware. There's always 25 cent martinis and the 20 dollar bread pudding with whiskey cream sauce.

This is a great place to eat at if you're looking for good cajun and creole food. It offers a good variety of seafood dishes as well and although slightly more expensive than your average restaurant what you pay for is well worth the price tag. The atmosphere is very pleasant. I have been there three times in the past and tried something new each time without regret. The food keeps coming! I like that it doesn't feel formal. The service is one of the best I have experienced in any restaurant. There is a reason this is one of the most popular restaurants in New Orleans. If you're looking for a taste of New Orleans this is the ideal place to stop at.

Insane picked onion, okra and shrimp. Commander's Palace, last week in New Orleans. Chef Tory made this as a non-meat option. The okra makes the whole plate sing. My grandfather grew okra for me to have whenever I visited Lubbock.

Commander's Palace Restaurant

 

My sister surprised me with reservations at Commander's Palace, which is one of the oldest restaurants in New Orleans. I have been wanting to visit for years, so I was super excited about this experience. It's a beautiful restaurant; very elegant, so wear your church clothes when you go. :-)

 

It was my birthday dinner and I wasn't driving back to the hotel, so I started with a cocktail called "Between The Sheets." It was described to me as a rum punch, only a bit stronger. Three of these later and well, I can confidently say that I got drunk on my birthday. Haha! As I got tipsy I enjoyed a smooth and rich gumbo, their signature pecan crusted gulf fish, and a praline parfait. Delicious! I was pretty toasty by the time I blew out that candle and giggled and babbled my way through the rest to the night and back to the hotel. One of our friends said, "drunk Diana is fun Diana." Oh my!

I can't fathom how anybody can rate this place less than 5 stars.. We're talking about one the best restaurants in the country and an absolutely beautiful mansion with a courtyard. On top of the impeccable food, the outstanding service with seemingly more wait staff than patrons, the bill is relatively affordable when talking about dining this fine. Anybody in new orleans needs to make a reservation here and find out on their own why this place is as highly sought after is it is. And get the turtle soup.

As good as fine dining

I have been to this place several times and the food is of top quality. Great layout, the staff was very friendly and professional, and good prices. I highly recommend this restaurant for anybody.
