I would highly recommend Saturday brunch in the Garden Room at Commanders. The food, atmosphere and service are impeccable. Commanders continues to deliver great culinary experiences year after year.

Head to the Garden District for the full-on New
Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking
streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions,
picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded
down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful
churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a
brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the
Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give

smart casual, I saw people in shorts, if by dinner jacket you mean a tux, he'll be mistaken for a waiter.

10vet0tra has it exactly right. They will remind you when you reserve or when they call you to confirm. It is a fun, lively restaurant, but not the kind of place you would feel comfortable in wearing shorts.

Commander's Palace welcomes everyone but we do have a dress code. It's a festive atmosphere! Shorts are never allowed. Inventive modern New Orleans cooking coexists with our Haute Creole. Sense the team's professional grace clothed in the warmth of the Brennan Family's brand of hospitality. From your first sip of a Sazerac to your last crumb of bread pudding soufflé, we hope you are pampered and delighted...and go ahead be a little bad...that's what living in New Orleans is all about.
