Avoid This One 5/10/2007

There are some great restaurants in Las Vegas and this USED to be one. It has fallen on hard times. The service is atrocious. The wait staff is lacking adult leadership. Pros: Drink the martinis and you might not notice how bad tthe service is Cons: Service (if you care to call it that) with a snear more

Horrible Service Captain Steve and Joe! Van de Kamp Fish?? 1/10/2007

It was my friend's birthday and we decided to go here. She had been in New Orleans and loved it. Well, our experience was far from what you'd get at even a decent restaurant. The staff seemed completely confused all night. When we ordered drinks, three went to the wrong person. One person noticed and then had them take them back and fix them. To be honest, I think they just swapped the drinks. Joe, who took the order, wasn't the guy bringing the drinks. Either he didn't know how to take the order or the person bringing the drinks didn't know how to read it. \r \r After finally receiving the food...which took a very long time for them to get around to taking the order, the food was just average, minus the fish...which was similar to Van De Kamp's. The presentation on the plate was nice and the greens were good, but the fish was horrible. \r \r Two of us had gotten desert included with the meal (the bread pudding souffle), which was delicious, so the other two of us got desert as well. The coffee we ordered didn't come with the desert and when we asked about it, we received water...then a few minutes later we received the coffee. We were almost done with the desert by the time the coffee came. \r \r They then brought out some pralines for our birthday person and a hat. We just looked at each other and laughed at the pralines. You'd get cake from even Chilli's or Friday's. \r \r When Steve came around asking us if we wanted anything more, drinks or anything else. One of us replied sarcastically ""sure"" and then we all laughed. A few minutes later, the same drinks arrived that we originally ordered at the beginning of the night. We were annoyed and argued with Steve about them. \r \r We then told who we thought was the manager, but in fact the maitre d', about the experience. He said he'd take a couple deserts off the bill and gave us a bag of pralines. 20 minutes of waiting later, we had to ask for a manager after receiving the bill and had to argue with him. Pros: Bread Pudding Souffle Cons: Service and Fish more

Cajun and Creole, 25 cent martinis 12/24/2006

We were really looking forward to experiencing their Cajun and Creole food after reading the reviews but, we were very disappointed. Our visit started with a maitre d? who may have been having a bad day; no we did not have a reservation but, it was 1 p.m. on a Monday and the restaurant was not busy. He was unattentive, rude and arrogant. Good thing they served martinis for 25 cents. The food was fresh but bland. The service, other than the maitre d' was excellent but server per customer per table in addition to the main server and the bus boy..........that must be why they charge the prices that they do.\r \r I would not return to this restaurant, not even for the 25 cent martinis. Pros: 25 cent martinis, food is fresh Cons: unpleasant maitre d', bland food more

The Best Creole bread pudding souffle & bourbon-whiskey sauce! 11/20/2006

Commander's Palace is a great restaurant -- especially for lunch! We decided to try the Las Vegas CP and were not disappointed. Excellent food, good service, and an incredible Creole bread pudding souffle with bourbon-whiskey sauce. We somehow missed the news on the cheap martinis, but lunch was excellent and I anticipate that we'll be back sometime on a future trip. Pros: The famous Creole bread pudding souffle with bourbon-whiskey sauce is just one reason to stop in Cons: Out of the way location in Aladdin, poorly advertised more


if you visit las vegas you HAVE to try lunch at C.P. it is by far the best deal in town and the food is just out of this world!! for $18.80 you get a three course meal and top that off with $0.25 martini's thats right a REAL FULL SIZED martini for a get that old new orleans cooked for days flavor(you have to try the gumbo or red beans and rice or turtle soup), or just about anything they have on the menu will be so full of flavor .and the desserts are to die for!! the service is just first class all the way, they imported most of there staff from new orleans so you get that old new orleans hospitality that only a brennan run place will give you. a MUST TRY Meal!! Pros: food, service, drinks more

Fave Place in Vegas 10/30/2006

The $18.80 lunch special is an absolute steal. And we've never had a problem with drink service being slow, we can usually only polish off two of their martinis anyway -- they make 'em strong! The Bananas foster is to die for, and I'm not even a fan of bananas... more

Champagne Breakfast 10/29/2006

$70+ Champagne Breakfast for two was well worth it if your tastes are exotic, but I failed\r to consider my spouse's meat & potatoes palate. She stripped the entre to the bare bones\r and showed reasonable enjoyment. Their Turtle Soup deserves caps. We booked at 10AM\r and were disappointed that their Dixieland Duo were tardy. No reason, they only play on the\r weekends. Also a sparse crowd was a downer. more

Good, but not the best. 10/25/2006

Th9s was our fifth visit and I was disappointed to learn that the long time manager Mike Smith had recently departed for Texas, but I was recognized and warmly greeted (big hug) by Santino, the Maitre d. I requested a table in the Garden Room, but it was temporarily closed due to work on the front facade so we were seated in the Wine Room. We ordered the 3-course $18.80 lunch special. I started off with the housemade crispy Andouille cake with green onion creme fraiche and baby greens. My entree was a 3 ham (Tasso, peppered wild boar and Parma) salad with creamy roasted garlic-artichoke dressing sounded better than it tasted, but the frozen bananas foster mousse dessert made my cares go away. Ms. Westie chose the Creole vegetable bisque followed by beef debris en Planket, slow roasted and braised beef tenderloin in a spicy jus over French bread with shoestring potatoes and horseradish emulsion, plus the aforementioned mousse. We consumed a total of 5 martinis at 25 cents each: 2 juicy cupcakes and 3 Commander's Palace. Pros: $18.80 3-course lunch, ambience, service more

sloooooow drink service 10/8/2006

We've always wanted to try Commander's, and the 25-cent martinis during lunch sealed the deal on our trip last week. The food was very good. We had crab cobb salad (a little steep at $24 but it was delicious) and one of us had the $18.80 three-course special (corn bisque, catfish, and dessert of cheese cake or chocolate cake, not the signature bananas foster). The service was pretty slow all-around, I mean lunch should not take two hours, especially when they are sloooow to bring out your drinks. I realize they probably don't want you ordering a lot of 25-cent martinis, but c'mon, 20 minutes to bring out the first drink? That's ridiculous. And it wasn't just us, other tables around us were also wondering where their drinks were. At least they had alcohol in them--they were real martinis. And we ended up having only two each. My recommendation if you go: order two up front so you don't have to wait and wait and wait for your drink. Pros: good food, nice atmosphere, 25-cent martinis Cons: sloooooow drink service more

Trial by Timex 9/15/2006

We have been to the CP many times before but were disappointed by the slapdash service we received in September. It took over an hour and a half when we ordered from the lunch menu. The waiter and maitre'd/manager were profuse in apologies but wouldn't adjust the bill. Money talks, or is that a novel concept in Vegas? \r Visit them in N'orleans. Pros: 25 Cent Martinis Cons: You'll need the martinis more

Fabulous!!! 8/20/2006

Went to the Aladdin to do some shopping and came across Commander's Palace. It looked good so we decided to have dinner there. The Maitre'd, Santino was gracious as ever and we were seated right away. Ate in the main dining room (in the middle) which was very cozy. The food was fabulous and the service was superb! Went back for lunch and enjoyed the jazz music as well as the $.25 Martini's (from 12 - 2pm). Whenever I am in Vegas I will definitely go back. One of the most memorable dining experiences! Pros: Great service, great food, great atmosphere more

Wow - Top Notch 5/2/2006

We had 14 people and from the moment we stepped in, serice was top notch. Santino (at the front) and Scott (our waiter) were impeccable. Our appetizers were oysters, alligator, tasso shrimp (a MUST) and crab cakes. Sizable portions, beautiful presentation, and accurate descriptions of each dish. Had the pecan-crusted fish, pork loin, bbq stew and the char (the special). Everything was great except the char but in all fairness, the description of trout crossed with tuna was pretty accurate. The pecan-crusted fish (not char) was perfect!!! The pork loin was tender. The dessert souffle must be ordered at the beginning but is an absolute must. It was heavenly light - delicate and aromatic flavor. Dinner was SO good that one of our guests made a reservation for the next time he was going to be in town. Pros: romantic, great service, good drinks more

all around impeccable 1/3/2006

We were greeted @ the door by an extremely personable & professional host. We did not make reservations, yet he seated us promptly & in the beautiful garden room. The decor is spectacular & the upscale yet down-to-earth service continued to impress. The 3-course lunch is very affordable & they were running a 25-cent martini special. The martinis (4 per person max) were delicious and not watered down. Each of us ordered different entrees and sampled from one another: fried oysters, turtle soup, alligator sausage, grilled mahi mahi, fried catfish, gumbo, etc. This is Creole cuisine @ its finest - seafood fresh & cooked to perfection, flavors bold yet not heavy, etc. Do yourself a favor & do not miss the dining experience @ Commander's Palace Pros: fine service, fine cuisine, fine ambience more

Brennan's 2/4/2005

We look for any restaurant owned by the Brennan family every vacation we take. When I go to Las Vegas it is a highlight of my trip to go to brunch and then dinner another night to this resuaurant. That goes for ANY other Brennan location California, New Orleans, or Houston. Pros: Food, Service, Desert more

Really Authentic Creole Cuisine 7/28/2004

Their menu is filled with good creole food. If you don't see it on the menu you can ask for it too. I went there for lunch and asked if I could get an oyster po-boy sandwich and it wasn't on the menu but I got it. The food always looks and tastes fantastic when it comes out. A plate you can eat with your eyes as well as your palate. more

Awesome experienc 5/24/2004

My boyfriend and I went for lunch at Commander's Palace. It was better than I expected. They were very accomodating and letting us eat outside in the cafe instead of the dining area (lunch is served indoor). The pecan crusted catfish so yummy. The alligator strips apetizer is amazing and my soup 1-1-1 (sampler with shrimp gumbo, cream of artichoke, and turtle soup) is delicous. We ate everything off the plate. I also order Po' Boy sandwich which I didn't eat. They took it off the tabe automatically. Lastly, the famous bread pudding soufle...YUM!! Def. my favorite restaurant in Vegas. Pros: Delicous creole food, first class service more

AWESOME 1/17/2004

My husband & I went here on a friend's recommendation & was extremely pleased. Although it was located in the Alladin, we felt we were in New Orleans. The service. food and cocktails were wonderful. The wine list was very expensive, but after 2 trys we were finally able to find a bottle that was in stock. The oyster shooters appetizer was so good, my husband ordered an extra portion. The pecan crusted fish was equally as good........Be sure to try the Sunday dixiland brunch. At $35pp, it was fabulous!!!!! Pros: Food, Service Cons: Expensive wines more

Low-class food for high-class price 3/1/2003

I was so disappointed in the food. We went for things the server recommended. For example, he said the $44 crabcakes were the best he'd ever tasted. They were bland, full of shell particles, and the crab itself was limp and didn't taste fresh. The raw oysters were chewy and so large we had to cut them in half. The beignets were oily and burnt tasting. The overall feeling I got was that it wasn't a ""real"" restaurant, more like an Olive Garden-chain-type joint. Pros: Service Cons: Food, Over-rated, Over-priced more

Not for Locals! 11/15/2002

I am a local and have been a ""regular"" at Commanders for almost two years on a weekly basis and I feel compelled to warn all locals here about their attitude towards customers who wish to frequent only their bar instead of dining at the restaurant without having a large party of at least four or more for dinner. You will not be accommodated at their bar since they consider it a ""holding area"" for those customers who are waiting on tables and they discourage anyone that wishes to only have a cocktail there. They are not at all receptive to locals (even those who are repeat customers) and you will find that similar fine dining establishments on the Strip will treat you with far more respect and substantially better service. Pros: Cajun Food Cons: Bad Bar Service more

THE BEST! 8/13/2002

Try anything is is wonderful. Better than in N.O. The gumbo is to kill o0r die for more
