Sorry, Emeril's is relying on past media hype. The food was not up to any expectation. Dishes looked good, but lacked any taste. Portions were small. The fish was all crust and no fish. The appetizer was all pasta and no cheese...and one tiny shrimp. Wine list was extensive with some decent prices too, despite its pretentious size. Frankly, a beautiful site and great staff were spoiled by a chef who was not really trying. STAY AWAY!!!!

We had a wonderful time celebrating our anniversary at this restaurant. The food was delicious and the staff very attentive. It did bother me though that the knife blades at the table did not have the cutting edges of their blades facing the plate. I have always been taught that this is the proper table setting etiquette unless the country is at war.

Excellent meal but portions were too big. Wish waiter had mentioned it to us as meal was $32 each. We only ate half each and as we were on holidays felt it was a waste. Great place would return

From the person greeting people at the door the night started out friendly. The staff was personable, helpful, and inviting. The waiters were awesome from start to finish of our night. The food was phenomenal and I would eat there nightly if I lived in New Orleans.

The staff was friendly, professional, and very helpful. Our waiter helped with recommendations for food and wine. Appetizers and entrees were all delicious. I got the porterhouse pork chop special and it was the best piece of pork I've ever had. Fantastic!

The food was not prepared as ordered and the manager was snotty and did not take off any money for the horrible food. My appetizer was not hot and my entree was burned after being returned for an improper steak. There is no place to wait for your table. Such a horrible letdown for my bucket list dinner I had on my list for 12 years.

Emeril's is an outstanding restaurant that never disappoints. I had one of the specials, a braised veal breast, that was inventively prepared and delicious. The seafood gumbo was as wonderful as I remember. The service was impeccable. A visit to Emeril's, whether in New Orleans or Orlando, is always special.

We were visiting New Orleans and wanted to celebrate a new job position. Have always heard that this is a great place and had to give it a try. It was everything that we had heard. Food got better with every course that was served. Only thing that we did not appreciate was the feeling that our evening was being rushed. The staff was always trying to clear our plates before we had finished and always asking if the they can bring us our next items.

The food was awesome and staff was courteous and attentive. It was out first visit and will definitely be back!!
Great Dining Experience!
I really enjoyed my very first visit to Emeril's. I was there to celebrate my mom's birthday, and the experience was first-class. From the valet (who opened the door for us), to the host, to the friendly and attentive waitstaff and excellent food (gumbo & BBQ salmon), I could not have asked for a better time at a restaurant! I will certainly be back next time I visit New Orleans!
Excellent service and food.
Excellent service and food.
Service was excellent. Food was just ok.
Emeril's has turned into a tourist trap. Service was incredible, but really lacking the punch I expect from the father of cajun cooking. Most of my meal was flavorless with the exception of my appetizer. And definitely not the best gumbo in town.
We had a terrific dinner with prospective clients from Taiwan. The understood my cues regarding when to come to the table and when to back off during conversation. The whole experience was above board. Hat's off to Emeril's team.
A bit too noisy. S lag between appetizer snd entree
An unbelievable experience
My wife and I went for our honeymoon, we were looking for good food. We left with an unbelievable experience! Not only was the food unbelievably delicious we felt special and pampered! We will definitely be back and highly recommend this restaurant if your anywhere near New Orleans.
Great as always
Emeril's never disappoints, always consistent, service was great, food was wonderful! We come here every trip to NOLA and are never disappointed!
My husband and I dined there one evening that we were in town. I had requested a quiet table when I made the reservations. Upon arrival, we were promptly brought to what I thought was the PERFECT table. Our "team" of waiters was phenomenal! Alan, Cory and Thomas (otherwise known as ACT) were attentive, professional and unpretentious. We ordered the bbq shrimp appetizer and they were delicious. My husband ordered the pork chop and that was huge! He loved it. I had the filet and brisket and that was probably the best meal I have ever had! All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner!
I will definitely be back here when I am back in New Orleans.
It was the best meal of my life.

Delicious meal and great service! I recommend trying a specialty cocktail, also the Andouilled Crusted Gulf Drum and Char Grilled Petit Filet of Beef.
