No list of New Orleans' restaurants would be complete without Commander's Palace. Voted Best Restaurant in the United States in 1996 by the James Beard Foundation, this fine southern establishment lives up to its reputation with exceptional cuisine and a dining experience you will not soon forget. One piece of the package here is the wait staff; the efficient servers are attentive rather than officious. Dining rooms vary in size from large to intimate in this modified 1880s Victorian house. Commander's Palace is particularly known for its turtle soup. Other standouts include the Mississippi Roasted Quail Stuffed with Creole Crawfish Sausage and for dessert, the Creole Bread Pudding Souffle. There is also an excellent wine list with suggestions for each entree.
My husband carried me to Commander s Palace in 1996 when we were dating. He carried me back there last year for our anniversary. This year we are going again for our anniverary with our daughter and son-in-law whom will be celebrating their anniversary as well. This place is so special to me and the food and service is exceptional. By far my most absolute favorite place in the entire U.S. to eat. They treated us like royalty every time. Looking forward to another fantastic meal Nov. 4, 2012.
My husband and I came here for our 3 year wedding anniversary a couple weekends ago and it was fantastic. The food was impecable, resturant itself was very high class, and the waiters do such a good job and keeping everyone comfortable. I cant wait to go back. The price is very reasonable. =) Good job guys!
We can't say enough great things about Commander's Palace! We're from New Orleans and moved out of town several years ago. We loved it then and still love it today. Every time we visit family and friends, which is several times a year, we always enjoy the outstanding food, service, friendliness, and atmosphere at Commander's Palace. Whenever our friends travel to New Orleans and ask where's the best place to eat, we always recommend this wonderful place. It can't be beat. We always try a different entree and have yet to be disappointed. Of course, their well known Souffle Bread Pudding is to die for. We're already looking forward to dining at Commander's next time we're in town!
I'm a little late in writing this but I went here for my birthday July 2007. Everything was wonderful from staff to the food. I got a signed menu as a gift. Definitely not a place for everyday eating but for a special occasion-it was totally worth the price.
All I can say is WOW!!! I work in the restaurant business in Texas, and have traveled the world, and this was the best experience I have ever had. From the Valets being kind and curteous and the beautiful Maitre'd to our server Hugo who had more knowledge of the menu than most Chefs in their own restaurants. We were in New Orleans to celebrate our 5th Anniversary and where somewhat reluctant to go because of all of the hype. You never want to waste money on a tourist trap. But this is no tourist trap, and it's not hype if it's true. Hugo and his team where amazing,the food was the best we have ever had, Chef Tory came by the table to wish us a Happy Anniversary, and we must have asked the manager Shawn a hundred questions about the city, the hurricane, and all other types of questions. He even went as far as to make reservations for dinner at their other restaurant Cafe' Adelaide for us. He gave us both a copy of his card and sincerely told us to call if we needed anything while in town. Two nights later we called and he arranged for tickets to see a show at the House of Blues for us. During our conversation over lunch Shawn told us that they all considered themselves Ambassadors of the city, well I can vouch for the fact that they are so much more. Commanders Palace is the restaurant that all others should strive to be. And other than the memories of a great meal, an amazing anniversary and the phenominal staff, I take away the knowledge of how to make my own restaurant even that much better. And maybe a friend or two.
Went there with a friend for the Jazz Brunch one Saturday and it was everything we could have wanted. The service was the best I've had and the food was amazing. Our waiters made us feel so very at home and the atmosphere was lively with the jazz band playing. A definite New Orleans experience not to be missed.
