About

Commander's Place is a famous restaurant serving haute Creole cuisine. Sitting in the center of New Orlean's famous Garden District, the distinctive blue walls and terrace of this restaurant have become a city landmark. The Commander's Palace is rightfully renowned for its incredible food, having won six James Beard awards. Several famous chefs have honed their skills as a Commander's Palace chef, including Jamie Shannon, Paul Prudhomme and Emeril Lagasse.

The menu at The Commander's Palace consists of classic Cajun and Creole cuisine elevated to new heights with modern spins. The menu changes frequently, so guests should be careful checking the menu online as there is a decent chance the kitchen is serving different specials than the ones listed. Some favorites that have frequently appeared, though, include Creole crawfish gnocchi, Gulf yellowfin tuna & redfish ceviche and a shrimp & tasso henican.

I found the atmosphere delightful and the food was excellent. My wife's shrimp were a little under cooked which I would not have expected at this level. Otherwise the food was great. Best bread pudding i've ever had.

Always a MUST when visiting NOLA. Garden Room or the Patio are where you want to request.

I'm not sure what all the hype is about other than it being a New Orleans institution. I've gone once and don't need to return

It was the highlight of our trip. I've travelled the world and eaten at many fine dining restaurants. None were better than Commander's Palace. What was really worth writing about was the service was as good or better than the food. I've never experienced service quite like this. Attentive. Helpful. Almost like watching a table magician. We spent a little over 2 hours there and it has been my most talked about recommendation on my return home. We also ate at Brennan's, another Brennan restaurant like CP, and it had the same standards for the food and service. This was NOT a tourist trap. A Brennan restaurant is the real deal.
