Emeril's Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

We hadn't eaten at Emeril's in a few years. The food was top notch. The staff was helpful, and allowed us to order a bunch of items to split so that we could all sample a few different entrees. They added some noise dampening panels to the ceiling which has made the dining room much quieter, and we were able to have a pleasant conversation between the four of us without having to strain to hear anyone. We will definitely go back sooner.

Food was very good, service was also very good. My wife's Pork chop was cooked to her liking and it had a great taste to it. My steak was cooked perfect along with the vegi's. I would of like to have a better side dish than French fries with the steak but that was the only negative of the whole meal. It was our first trip into New Orleans and always wanted to try an Emeril restaurant. Would recommend.

The food was GREAT! The service was GREAT! The food came out in record time the portions were way more than I expected and Tasted better than I could imagine, even the breads were baked with love is what I said after I taste them! The service was friendly, helpful, observant and they ALL WORKED fabulous as a Team! I wish I could have tipped the entire restaurant! Eating the leftovers without a microwave were reliving Emeril's food experience all over again at 2:30am! Thanks for the food tips Herme!

My family's second visit to Emeril's in the original location was a smash success. Again, the gumbo was stellar--in this case, each of us started with the smoked chicken and sausage gumbo, which is really in a class by itself. Appetizers were simply stunning--the quick fried lobster on a stick ranks as one of my favorite appetizers, period. The fresh fish (drum in my case and trout in my wife's) were both imaginatively presented and flawlessly prepared, while the beef ordered by my daughter prepared by perfection. The brilliant meal was topped by a classic dark roast coffee. Overall, the meal and the service was terrific. The wine list is equal to the culinary expertise, that is truly stellar. Can't wait for the next visit!

Food was over cooked . Ordered a well done burger. It was raw, the burnt, then after chef personally cooked it was red inside . My wife would not eat.
Fish was cooked until coating was over cooked and edges was overdone. The coating had hurt makes on it.
Over priced. Go somewhere else . Emeril need to reteach this folks how to cook.

We had dinner at Emeril's for our "fancy" dinner night as part of a fun-filled Bachelorette Party Weekend. It quickly became the culinary highlight of our trip.
Let's just start with the SERVICE. The customer service from every single individual on the floor that night was remarkable. When we entered the restaurant, I was greeted by my first name, as they were expecting us. Fine dining customer service at its best; chairs pulled out for each of us, correct linens, all plates placed on table at the same time, and a server to personally escort you to where the restrooms were located. We even received a full kitchen tour and we had the privilege to meet everyone in the kitchen who made us such a delicious dinner, including the head chef.
The food....BAM! It never disappoints. Don't even waste your time eating anything else that day before dinner; arrive with an empty stomach! Our table had the salmon, hangar steak, gumbo, and gulf drum. You know the food is good when the table is silent while eating... We knew then we had to find room in our stomachs for dessert. King cake and banana cream pie were out of this world.
Thank you to all the staff for a wonderful dining experience, especially Cordell our waiter! I will definitely be back!

I went online to Open Table to make the reservations and didn't expect the overwhelming courtesy to me and my girlfriend. We are a lesbian couple and the staff treated us with pride and even the host or manager came around to great and tell my loved one happy birthday , in fact several waiters did. This was one of the best experiences I have ever had in my life. I laughed and smiled the entire time. If I could tell Emeril about his staff, he would want duplicates of them. They all made sure we had a great time. I loved my experience and will be sure to go again when I can. Being from Mississippi it was a little driving but well worth the trip.

From the minute we walked in the door until we left we were taken care of in the most professional manner. The service and food were outstanding. It was one of the best if not the best restaurant experiences we have ever had!

Positives: I ordered the bourbon mash cocktail and it was excellent.
Negatives: service was intrusive in that we had three different staff responsible for our table which resulted in our water being topped off every time we took a sip. Food was mediocre. I ordered the crab bisque and had a few shells in it. Hanger steak was good but definitely not great. Much better restaurants in the area to try!

Not quite up to previous experiences. Menu has not changed significantly over time. Servers had to be reminded to bring bread. Shrimp bisque was excellent. Gumbo interesting and tasty. Salmon was good. Overall, satisfactory dining.

We celebrated a 40th birthday. From the time we entered the restaurant to the time we left we were greeted with the upmost courtesy. The food was lmpeckable along with our servers. Would highly recommend this place to others.

We were on a travel course for nursing school. This place deserves their 5 stars! I have never seen such tremendous service and attention to detail. Everything was just perfect. I did not feel guilty about the prices either. If I ever make it back to NOLA, this will be on the itinerary! The staff was very professional. The food and drinks were amazing. Here it just all comes together to form a memorable evening with friends!

FABULOUS! The food was excellent and the service perfect. It wasn't snooty as you would think being a well known restaurant, the servers were friendly and funny. I enjoyed everything about this experience and can't wait to go back.
