The Commander's Family of Restaurants returns to the French Quarter, where the family business began in the 1950's, with our Spirited Restaurant - SoBou. We're South of Bourbon (ok - it's really southeast), in the land of civilized drinking and worlds away from the oversized beers and bad frozen drinks. Our modern Creole saloon is a Louisiana-centric and street food inspired restaurant with a beverage focus.
Lunch: Daily: 11:00am - 4:00pm.
Dinner: Sunday - Thursday: 4:00pm - 10:00pm, Friday - Saturday: 4:00pm - 11:00pm.
SoBou has a very creative chef and cuisine is excellent.
The staff are professional yet friendly. Overall this restaurant offers good value and amazing food. An assortment of starters results in a most satisfying culinary experience!
Tasty gourmet experience!
Fantastic meal music and entertainment. Could not have been better! Everyone in our party loved their meal choices.
Absolutely loved our legs and eggs experience! Delicious food and excellent bloody Mary's. The show was fabulous....beautifully done!!!! Thank you for a memorable 70th birthday!
The staff made it the best meal! We were celebrating my 25th birthday and had the best service.
The food was incredibly delicious, the service was perfection. We celebrated our anniversary and all the staff knew before we even sat down. It was an exquisite experience from start to finish!
The food and service were great. I had the 2 course lunch and everything was cooked and seasoned perfectly. The $.25 martini during lunch were also a plus
Food was very good, the place is really nice. The staff was very helpful. Fun times!!
Came here with my fiancé for a quick drink and bite before a tour, and we enjoyed ourselves! The waitress was a bit overwhelmed by being the only bartender at the full bar, but she compensated her slight frustration by making sure we left on a good note. She surprised us with their bread pudding dessert for my fiancé’s birthday (I mentioned his birthday in the OpenTable reservation) and it was DELICIOUS! Great ambiance and delicious food. Highly recommend for a nice date night or just for a quick bite/drink!
My experience was awesome. I was able to get a reservation last minute. The manager came to my seat at the bar and introduced himself. The chef was able to make small adjustment to my dish. But i have to say, the most friendly, enjoyable staff was the bartender, Brandy. She must truly love her job. It shows.
If you think service isn’t what is used to be, run to SoBou and request Brian Lugo. Outstanding service, wonderful experience, can’t wait to return!
It was a fun and different way to do Brunch.
Food was amazing, entertainment even more, Gia our Burlesque goddess was delightful
One of the best times i have had in a long time. Food was creative and very good, though limited for a brunch menu. The band was excellent playing lively, well know Dixieland jazz numbers that got the crowd going. The dancer was a gem. She was talented, personable, funny and interacted with all the guests in a friendly and flirty manner. Can't wait to go back with friends.
Our server was lovely and food was interesting and tasty. I was a little disappointed there wasn’t more to the burlesque show. It was short but Bella was pretty and classy.
Most modern restaurant in the French Quarter; Wait staff a little slow weird and awkward; foodie good. Much like the W next door.
Excellent food, great service, fantastic ambiance. This restaurant is on our list of places to visit every single time we’re in town. Most recently, we had a multigenerational dinner there, and everyone walked out happy and full. Not one criticism to be had- and that’s hard to find in a big group. My grandmother would like me to add that the benches were also very comfortable, although they might not look like it straight away.
Disappointed in our Thanksgiving dinner. Was on vacation for the holiday and wanted something special. Food took an hour to come out and waitress barely checked on us. They also forgot to bring out the cranberry reduction and seemed irritated when we asked for it. The food had good taste but all of the sides were lumped together and you couldn’t enjoy them individually.
Food was cold and not good at all. Seating in the cold breeze of the ac we needed to put our coat on.
We went there for thanksgiving dinner and enjoyed all of our meals and hooch. Everything was delicious and our server Brandi was the best! She was attentive and funny and made our experience all the more memorable! She’s awesome!
Ok no more
Really nice restaurant with great food and service. Toi (I think that's how you spell it) took care of us and gave great recommendations for food & drinks.
We were there on Thanksgiving, and while we didn't taste the normal menu, the holiday offerings were lacking. The Turkey was fantastic, but everything else--a stacked mixture of oyster dressing, gravy, and sweet potatoes--was a hodgepodge of salty, peppery, mush. Of the deserts, the apple tart came room temperature, the bread pudding was a bit dry--although the luxardo cherries were a delightful addition--and lacking a sauce. The bottle of wine--a Sancerre--came room temperature. We were only offered a bucket of ice after half the bottle had been poured out (and the melted ice proceeded to leak through the bucket). Maybe I'll try the place again, but with some many other food options available in New Orleans, maybe not.
We paid $30 a person for cold Thanksgiving mush.
Fantastic food. Great service!! Definitely recommend
we came for thanksgiving. the staff was super friendly and the dining area vey inviting. the turkey plate was super filling and reasonably priced. will definitely go back!
Very nice ambiance and cadre.
However this is where it stops we were staying at the W hotel and thought their restaurant would be on-par with other Ws throughout the country and the world. Not at all. Service was super slow (it took us 40min to het our food), food was average. We were a group of 8 and initially the host didn’t think they could sit us. But one of the waitresses pointed us to a double-booth. We also had to go there daily for breakfast since we had coupons. It would take them 1h to get us food eqch and every morning. We won’t be back
Tina did an outstanding job
I was really looking forward to eating here... however, we checked in with the host/hostess, they directed us to their bar and courtyard to wait until our table was ready, and then NEVER CALLED US -- while we spent money buying drinks waiting. VERY DISAPPOINTED. Then, on top of that, they tried to report me to OpenTable for not honoring my reservation! I probably won't try again, not worth it.
Very nice show must see
Our server was wonderful. She had about 10 tables though. Place was way understaffed and disorganized. Had an 8pm reservation and were seated about 840 even though tables were open.
The manager comped us a bunch of stuff. Which was nice. The food is good. If they get organized would be happy to give them another shot.
Want to make sure you know our server was really great.
Overall great experience at SoBou! Very cool atmosphere, delicious cocktails and food, and pleasant service. Will definitely be coming back when we are in town!
Erika was a great waitress. The food was great. The 25 cents martini deal is the best
Fantastic restaurant, delicious food - excellent service!
We celebrated my husband’s birthday there tonight and had a blast. Jordan & the rest of the crew really looked after us and made the occasion extra special.
Thank you! We’ll be back, for sure.
Went for a bachelorette brunch and had an amazing experience! Wish I lived in the area so I could bring more people to have the burlesque brunch experience!! Go! and ask for Nene to be your server!!
Decor is really nice. The food was subpar and over priced. Seating was uncomfortablez. Would not go back or recommend.
Nice little bar/restaurant in the French Quarter. The staff were super attentive and the cocktails were very nice. Our food was a little disappointing as the menu description and the actual meal did not match. We were compensated with a yummy dessert. The portions are more light bite size than meals so you may need to order several items if you are very hungry.
Brandy our server was Outstanding!!! Nice place
What a great restaurant! This was my second visit and enjoyed a completely new menu. My sister and I enjoyed each having a salad and then picking 4 tapas to share and enjoy. The white chocolate cherries jubilee bread pudding is fantastic.
We had great service by Jared.
