The Zagat Review
The "nostalgic" , "old-world" ambiance will "make you feel like a king or queen" at this "genteel" Garden District Creole icon – as will the "first-class" staff that treats "everyone the same: spectacularly" ; "rich" , "leisurely" dinners are an "experience to savor" , and made even more "epic" by a "phenomenal wine list" , so it's a "splurge" that's "worth every penny" , though some "prefer" the "fabulous" lunch (could it be the "25-cent martinis" ?); P.S. no shorts or T-shirts; jackets suggested for men.

Insider Tip
In the summer, the restaurant sells off inventory from their wine cellar at half price. There's one catch: You have to mention the phrase "GrapeNutes" when making a reservation, then you'll receive the discounted wine list.

Zagat Mentions of Commander's Palace

Few restaurants live up to their hype. Commander's Palace does. The food is all fresh, farm to table....or Gulf to table...and cooked to perfection. I dined with a group of 7. Everyone of us was very impressed with the quality and attention to detail in the delicious meals that were served. I had the Blue Fin Tuna and it was exquisite! From the moment we entered the front door until we reluctantly left after a leisurely, sumptuous dinner, the level of service was fantastic. I literally cannot offer one minute criticism. Every member of our wait crew...and even other staff in and about the restaurant were very welcoming and warm and always focused on making sure our experience at Commander's Palace was spectacular. From the elegant cocktails in the bar, to the great meal and very nice ambience in the dining room....through to our dessert and coffee, our experience was one that will linger...and certainly bring us back, when we are in New Orleans, again.

We enjoyed the meal, ambiance, and service. They offer Gluten Free options to those that are in need. I thought the food was well thought out and sometimes exciting in its preparation and delivery. They would often take every day meals and change them to make something new and fun. I would say that they were very "relaxed" on their dress policy, and that was a little disappointing because we're paying for and expecting a nice venue. At one point, I saw a gentlemen walk through with workout pants and a running jacket...and this was during the dinner hour.

Hands down the best meal I've had in my entire life from beginning to end. Went for the jazz brunch for my birthday. The wait staff are so attentive and so sweet. The customer service is like no other. Get the turtle soup, sounds weird but the flavors are out of this word, your stomach will thank you later. Beautiful views of the courtyard, exquisite food, the live band, and the friendliest staff. Without a doubt will go again on my next trip to NOLA
