e2 emeril's eatery
e2 Always a Treat!I love e2 it is my favorite Charlotte restaurant! Took Mom for M's Day brunch, and it was perfect! Manager Jeff and his staff always make one feel like a VIP. Love the bar, where the bartenders will make something special upon request. Can't wait to return!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentMy husband and I went here to celebrate our one year anniversary. The bar was extremely loud but we were seated in the back where it was quieter. My husband ordered the duck. It was our first experience tasting duck and it was phenomenal!!! I would definitely order it again. We didn't see our server often but there was always someone stopping by to make sure we were taken care of. Our overall experience was fantastic.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGraduation DinnerThe perfect place to celebrate a special occasion. Everything was delicious!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFood!!! Service?The food is AMAZING!! Each of us ordered very different meals and shared at least one bite. Each selection was multi-dimensional with layers of flavors that did not overpower but rather compliment the previous flavor. The portion was outstanding; the price and wait time was what I expected. Presentation was over the top!
The greeter was friendly but did not offer any suggestions to make us comfortable while we waited. The wait staff was green. We had to ask for lemon (for our water) twice, our drinks were completely empty multiple times and never checked on us between the time we ordered our food and received it (at least 20 minutes). However, I will gladly look over this disappointment and return because the food was outstanding!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMEmeril-ificOne of our fav places to dine. Gumbo, beet salad and Gulf Drum- outstanding. Same for the pasta and lobster. Banana Cream pie is over the top. Service was much imkproved since last time. Need to sit all the way in the back to escape the noise. AC wasn't working great either. Everything else.....fantastic.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceA little apprehensive from the other "celebrity" chef restaurants I have visited. Not what I expected the décor to be which was great.
Hostess, Manager, Wait crew - all great. This one scores top.
Food very good. I am a lover of duck and this may well be the best I have had in both presentation and taste. Breast perfect and thigh/leg just the right crispness. My parents both said their food was great and the banana pie perfect.
The only thing I can even say close to bad about my experience is that I wish the specials were a little more outside the box from the main menu.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner before a showThe drinks are phenomenal but the fried chicken was bland. I was hoping for the rotisserie chicken but the menu changed.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed our meal at e2.We enjoyed our meal at e2. As always this place delivers. Gluten free menu too.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAfter dining here severalAfter dining here several times I finally tried the infamous Shrimp & Grits - have to say, they are pretty darn amazing!!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMTasting menuMy fiancé, best friend, and myself went here for my 21st birthday since. I thought I would try the chefs tasting menu since the price wasn't bad compaired to everything else. For the first course the budain was impressive as well as the black eye peas. I don't like beans at all but for these were spot on! I couldn't get enough of them. Second course was the spinach salad and again I'm not a huge spinach fan more of a romaine but it was very well dressed and boy did it taste good! Third course was the filet and bone marrow overal I thought it was good. The marrow was cooked perfect the filet I ordered med rare I'm assuming was cooked sous vide, was perfect cooked, but the filet was warm not hot. Banana cream pie was to die for overall great!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and beautiful restaurantGreat food and beautiful restaurant.

We will definitely return for more of the same.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFun evening of great food and jazze2 was the perfect spot for celebrating my fiance's 60th birthday. We we're attending a show at the Knight's Theater and only had to walk across the street after dinner for the show. The food was delicious. We started with the barbeque shrimp and chicken thigh and waffle. I had the flounder and he had the sea scallops with the collard greens. The flounder was perfect and the scallops were very tender. We both had nothing but goods thing to share about our meals. Will definitely be going back to e2 soon!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBest carrot cake everWe had the Easter brunch today. The crawfish and chorizo omelet was outstanding. The very best thing was Stephanie's Carrot Cake. It was the most amazing carrot cake we've ever eaten. The banana cream pie was outstanding and also was the lemon creamscicle drink. The service was attentive and everyone on the wait staff was friendly. It is right across from the Mint Museum so it's agood place for lunch. We have been to Emerils other restaurants in Orlando and New Orleans and this is one of my favorites.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMA good first experienceOverall a good 1st experience with e2. Nice setting a little away from the hustle & bustle of uptown but within the arts district. The entrance was very inviting & the restaurant decor was nicely done. I LOVED the open kitchen where we can watch all the food preparation. Very extensive wine list. BBQ shrimp appetizer was delicious-perfect starter. Disappointed there wasn't a defined kids menu, especially for Easter Brunch. Would like to try regular dinner menu.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I had bothMy husband and I had both of our parents in town and enjoyed Easter Mass at St. Peter's and then had brunch at Emeril's. Everyone enjoyed the food and the service was fantastic...we are looking forward to going back and enjoying dinner soon!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was really good....food,Everything was really good....food, service, atmosphere. My parties only recommendation would be to have tablecloths on the tables in the dining room area. The bar is fine without but the dining room area needs something to warm it up a bit more.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was delicious, staffFood was delicious, staff was accommodating, friendly, and attentive.

There were 2 big groups being serviced that night and as a result made our dinner 2 hours long.
The food and service was good but the kitchen could not handle the demand.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AME2 - A great dining experience...This was our second dinner at E2. The first was a year ago. We don't travel to Charlotte very often... Our first experience was terrific and sometimes when you visit a great restaurant a second time it just doesn't measure up to your first dinner there. However, E2 was just perfect the second time around - great food, awesome service and an interesting (in a good way) bar selection. Next time we are in Charlotte, we'll definitely return to E2... Reservations are recomended - use OpenTable to book a week ahead...3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place! Servers reallyGreat place! Servers really make you feel special and try to meet all of your requests.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMYou made our anniversary veryYou made our anniversary very special. I'm looking forward to our next visit. Everyone was friendly, neat and clean, knew their jobs and made us feel very special. This was our third experience with dining at an Emeril's and you really lived up to our expectations. The extras, Champagne, and raw tuna added to our delight. Kudo's to your kitchen.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThanks for coming to Charlotte!One of my favorite restaurants. The C.A.B. Filet is awesome, the Duck is amazing.
