Description: 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.

My friends and I dined at Commander’s to celebrate ended our birthdays (all in April). We have had many fine meals there in the past. On this occasion the recommended fish meal was a very small portion and lacked any taste. The salads that were supposed to have heirloom tomatoes instead had tasteless grape tomatoes.

Service was excellent as usual.

This is such a famous establishment, we had to come here for the experience! The food was great, but we definitely had better meals in New Orleans. The atmosphere and history were worth it though! Such a gorgeous restaurant! Excellent service as well!

The service and atmosphere are an Old South Fine Dining experience with exceptional food. I spotted the fresh strawberry short cake as we were escorted through the kitchen to our table in a beautiful dining room.

We had eaten here last year & I thought it was very good. This time - it was incredible...

Great atmosphere & wait staff. You are constantly pampered for all your food & drink needs with excellent recommendations in both areas.

We ordered the 3 course meal.

Turtle soup appetizer was A+ delicious. Then, stuffed quail for myself & BBQ Shrimp for my wife. Quail was perfectly prepared and exquisite to the last bite. BBQ Shrimp was also tasty with very nice portion.

However - the best part of the meal is the world famous Bread Pudding Souffle. I am not a big bread pudding fan but this will make even the "no dessert for me" patron salivate with envy. When you go here, do not pass on this dessert.

Bon Appetite till the next time I get to visit New Orleans
