Emeril's Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

It's a nice restaurant and would recommend but if you get our server Henry ( I hope I'm remembering his name correctly large framed man with first name starting with a H).. please read on. He made for such an unpleasant experience. Felt like he just wanted to go home early and kept hovering around my table, appetizers came out in minutes after ordering, barely digested the appetizers when our entree appeared and couldn't even wait for me to give my credit card at the end. Came by 2 times while I was trying to enjoy my conversation with my guest to see if I left credit card yet. When I finally paid, he couldn't even wait to grab the receipt with the gratuity added, had to interrupt me to reach for the portofolio. The more I think about my experience with my server, I realize I need to notify the manager and let them know since clearly I'm still upset by the incident.

Really professional staff. Extensive wine list ranging from decent value to "how is this possible?!".
Unfortunately, we ordered two hangar steaks and both were terribly over cooked. They did offer to make new steaks, but had low confidence in getting them right, and I have strong feelings about wasting meat.
Regardless, I recommend them

Overrated. Food was fine. Nothing wrong with it but nothing to write home about either. Waitstaff attentive but not engaging. Management unkept. Upon exiting we had to open the door despite the fact that the host was standing right there..oh yeah, he was laughing with waitstaff that was standing around. No one even said goodnight.

Food was very good, service superb, but the noise from the table next to ours was invasive They were very well liquored and was sad to see that there was nothing done to get them to behave respectfully of other diners trying to enjoy a relaxed dinner. The wait staff was participating by taking pictures which turned into fits of hysteria by the patrons as they attempted to hold each other up! Very annoying and frustrated that the extremely attentive staff did nothing to calm them down. At times they screamed!
Disappointed in management turning a blind eye to the affect of the ruckus they caused!

Our experience at Emeril's was truly a memorable one in every way. The service staff was polite, welcoming, quite knowledgeable and descriptive about menu items and specials and you could tell that they love working there. The wine list was probably the most extensive I've ever seen (I picked a Foxon Pinot Noir by the glass- out of this world) The food was outstanding! My wife and I, both restaurant veterans of many years, can be a bit of a hard sell when it comes to "TV Chefs", but let me tell you Emeril Lagasse Knows his business. You can see why Emeril's has risen to the top echelon in one of the great food cities in the world. No detail is left to chance. I highly recommend it!

I recommend Emerils for any occasion, we've been there before. We were there this week for an anniversary. The staff made such a fuss that my wife was thrilled. The standard for restaurants in NOLA is the highest and Emerils is at the top. The service, food and drink is absolutely the best. Thanks

Have been to Emeril's N.O. a number of times and never disappointed. Great service, superbly prepared food. Ambiance is quiet enough to carry on a conversation without straining to hear every word. Will go there many more times.

My go to place for fine dining. Without exception, Emeril's delivers first class service with exceptional food. I always feel that from valet to busboy that each and every staff member wants to make it a memorable experience.

Hard to believe you're asking if we liked Emeril's Restaurant ... it's Emeril Lagasse! Everything was great. Greeted and seated promptly. Service staff worked like a well-oiled machine. The only drawback was the party that got seated next to us -- the woman was pretty loud and a little gauche. However, the maitre d' and wait staff quickly descended on her table and got her what she wanted quickly and she quieted down.

The service was outstanding.
We were not pleased at all with the food at Emeril's. I had the Duo of Beef (Filet and Roast Beef). The filet was not tender at all and the roast beef tasted like it had been in a pan most of the day. The serving size was quite small for the price and neither tasted well.
My son ordered the swordfish and it came out very "gamey" tasting with a crust that was not good. I tasted myself and could not take another bite. He did not finish the meal.
My other two family members were equally unimpressed but I did not taste their meal so I cannot comment.
For what we paid ($350) for family of four, I expected a fantastic meal. This was just the opposite.
