    Famous New Orleans hangout across from Lafayette Cemetery--we walked by around 4 in the afternoon while visiting the cemetery across the street, listening to the band rehearsing for the coming night's entertainment....great local experience...the menu is the best of NO seafood and always the freshest...old style service and first class food make for a rewarding foodie experience

    Favorite Dish: Gumbo and oysters

    Commander's Palace Restaurant: Commander's Palace Restaurant

    Commander’s Palace restaurant is a famous expensive restaurant, it is listed on many guides (as one of the top rated ones in USA) but the dress code is formal (jacket required) so we couldn’t get inside anyway. That’s why I will just post the pic we took from outside while we were walking along Garden District, the restaurant is located opposite Lafayette Cemetery #1.

    It was established in 1883 by Emile Commander and used to be a bordel in the 20s! I’ve heard that the food and service is good and of course you have to make a reservation in advance.

    Commander's Palace: incredible lunch deal

    by jakelorenzo Written Jan 28, 2007

    Classic creole. Commander's Palace is one of the great restaurants in the world. Sixteen months of renovation after Katrina, Commander's has reopened with beautiful new digs, while keeping the old familiar feel of the place. Commander's can be pricey, but if you go for lunch you can have a real bargain. There are three daily lunch specials from $15-$18. Each includes an appetizer and an entree. Portions are generous. The food is fabulous. Monday through Friday they have 25 cent cocktails. 25 CENT COCKTAILS! A good thing too, because the pricing on wine is absolutely ridiculous and unaffordable unless you are NBM (nothing but money.)

    Favorite Dish: Turtle soup is the best in the city.

    Commander's Palace: One Of The Older Restaurants in NOLA

    by BigBlueOne Updated Mar 29, 2007

    Interior was much nicer than exterior (the outside is not much to look at). Overall, service was excellent.

    If you're visiting NOLA, you'll most likely have to take a taxi to get here, but you could easily incorporate an impromptu tour of the garden district if you have time (we didn't, but I wish we had).

    Very impressive wine list.

    Favorite Dish: I had the "Harris Ranch" Black Angus Filet Mignon with truffled buttermilk mashed potatoes. The steak was good, the mashed potatoes were exceptional.

    Commander's Palace: Commander's Palace (Four Stars!)

    I have eaten at Commander's Palace in Uptown New Orleans for decades. My last meal was last New Years Eve, and I have never been dissapointed. This is a four star, first class establishment in every way. The cuisine, the service, the ambiance, even the mixed drinks are all top drawer. While giving your drink order, tell the waiter that you want the famous "bread pudding souflet" for desert. (Give this order before you order the entree, because it takes time to prepare.) Almost everything on the menu is a winner, but the oysters Rockerfeller and seafood dishes are fantastic. I have never had a bad meal at Commander's in forty years of dining, and I highly recommend the establishment with no reservations. *Locals tip: Keep an eye peeled for celebrities. Nicholas Cage, John Goodman, Clint Eastwood, Johnny Depp have all been spotted there. (Last New Years Eve I ran into James Carville... oh well... no evenings perfect.)

    Favorite Dish: The infamous bread pudding souflet, and Oysters Rockerfeller.
