One of the most important restaurants of 2013 by Zagat Magazine!<br />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.

"SoBou is terrific with thoughtful service and an equally thoughtful menu. At lunch, the menu includes a 2-course option and 25 cent martinis. Loved the duck gumbo with a dollap to mashed potatoes, and the crawfish salad is loaded with flavor. Martinis are full sized, limit three"

The grand dame of New Orleans' old-line restaurants, Galatoire’s has remained committed to culinary excellence for more than a century. Under the guidance of the fourth generation of family ownership, it is her time-honored customs that still bind this renowned restaurant. Above all others, her rich tradition of serving authentic French Creole cuisine at a level that raises consistency to an art form. It is often said that the beauty of Galatoire’s is that things never change. Even after 100 years, ageless New Orleans favorites grace her menu just as they did in 1905.

"Galatoire's has been around forever but it does not disappoint. The fod is superb, the service is superb and so is the ambience. Our waiter was knowledge, efficient and made us feel at home. Trout was wonderful as were the red fish, seafood gumbo, creamed spinach. DO NOT LEAVE WITHOUT TRYING THE BREAD PUDDING. A must."

"This is the second time we have been here, both times coincided with our visit to the Matlz Theatre, which is nearby. Great food. The fixed price menu is an exceptional bargain -- we ordered the huge pork chop and fish and chips off it. Another member ordered the Beef Wellington off the regular menu and raved about it. Service very good. We will return. Only regret this time -- we didnt order the souffle for dessert but that is our fault. Last time we had it and it was wonderful!"

"Lovely restaurant right on the beach so the view is terrific, as is the food. Great seafood dishes but also a terrific steak, too. We also loved the side salads."

Recipient of numerous awards for culinary excellence, the restaurant is known as one of the finest dining establishments on America’s east coast serving fresh seafood by the waterway. It is a well-known fact that Blue Moon offers the finest waterfront dining in Fort Lauderdale and is in the top tier of acclaimed restaurants within the entire South Florida region.<br /><br />Blue Moon's elegant interior dining room is decorated in authentic Art Deco style with high ceilings, inlaid wood, carved accents and frosted art glass partitions featuring an underwater theme.<br /><br />There's nothing quite as magical as enjoying an expertly crafted gourmet meal on the Blue Moon terrace where the boats pass by in graceful motion throughout the day and night.

"First time here and we will be back. We stopped here before attending a play at the nearby Jupiter Maltz Theater. A fixed price dinner is a bargain, $32 for appetizer or dessert and entree or $39 for appetizer, entree and dessert. And if you order before 6:15 there is a 20% discount, even more of a bargain. And the food is wonderful. Organic salmon was perfectly prepared; the sliced tuna, near raw, was amazing and we liked the crisp fish and chips. Carrot soup was ful of flavor. And desserts are equally sophisticated. Imagine getting souffle as part of the fixed price menu! Grand Marnier souffle was an excellent way to end the superb meal. And service was efficient, professional and friendly. Our waitress enhanced our meal"

PISTACHE is a Parisian-style French bistro with a Mediterranean twist. It serves simple, delicious meals made with fresh, local and imported products. It seats 180 people and is open seven days a week for lunch and dinner.<br />Prices are moderate and the recipes nutritionally healthy. Service is casual and efficient. The atmosphere is upbeat with a definite European flair. The interior is reminiscent of the Art Nouveau, which defined most brasseries and bistros opened in 1920"s Paris. It boasts cozy seating with numerous red leather banquettes, a full bar and giant antique mirrors. The restaurant has a feel of "Always been there". It is classic, retro-modern and sophisticated but unpretentious.<br />The outdoor patio overlooks Centennial Park, the Fountains and the Intracoastal Waterway. It is shaded with large umbrellas and seats 30 people in a Riviera-like setting.

"Ths is a perfect restaurant to have a lovely mean if you are going to Palm Beach Dramaworks, just a few steps away, but it is good enough to be a destination restaurant. We loved the mushroom risotti, the swordfish, pork belly salad and the boulebais. Service is terrific"

"Lamb kebobs were succulent and juicy, served medium rare as requested; Greek potatoes quite good and loved the chicken lemon soup. Trout was outstanding. We love this place but haven't been in this area for a while. Can't wait to return."

"This was the fourth time I have eaten here and this time it was not up to previous standards. While the food was good, it wasnt as great as before. The hamburger, shrimp and grits and meatloaf had a lot of flavor as did the beer can chicken. But the shrimp and grits were lukewarm and the fries with the chicken and hamburger were stone cold. Corn bread is good as is the crab hush puppies. But there seems to be a lot of nickel and diming here and a disconnect between management. I can understand the corn bread being charged but $6 is too much. Could the rstaurant not spare some bread? Our server said there were no free refills on the club soda; when the manager stopped by near the end of the meal we asked about it. He was went into a long discussion about how it might be free refilles or it might be charged and brought another club soda. It would have gone a long way to take that charge off the bill. I would go back but will not rush to return."

"Vienna's menu features innovative dishes and ones that we have eaten--and loved-- for years. No matter as everything here is delicious. Wedge salad is not only terrific but large enough for two. Braised Danish Pork Bell with apple bacon onion jam is amazing. The Filet of Beef Stroganoff is so flavorful with each bite bringing out a different taste.
Service was wonderful. Our waiter was professional, efficient and friendly. Keep this man--he is a gem.
