A word from Emeril's Delmonico
Located on the famed St. Charles street car line in the lower Garden District, Emeril’s Delmonico has been a New Orleans tradition since 1895. Today, Chef de Cuisine Anthony Scanio continues Chef Emeril Lagasse’s signature style of “New New Orleans” cuisine, while adding influences from the diverse cultures that helped shape the Creole tradition. On the menu, it’s not uncommon to find ingredients from the Caribbean islands, such as crisp plantains, along side more classic Creole dishes to create a wholly unique dining experience. You’ll find New Orleans originals, such as oysters Bienville and fresh fish meuniere, as well as new favorites—a chorizo-stuff pork loin, dry-aged duck breast, and of course, sumptuous, dry-aged steaks. Delmonico features nightly starters, soups, entrée, and dessert specials and a seasonally changing menu based on local and regionally available meats and produce.

    The food was perfect, the building historic, but the service is what made this a MUST DO restaurant while in NOLA. Malcom and his 2 server assists were perfect!!! You can teach your staff the basics of serving the room but what you can't teach is charm and grace. This crew had it all making for a near perfect dining experience!!!

    Looking for a great steak in the Big Easy may not be so easy. Sure many places claim to be a "steak house" but Delmonico's surpasses them all by a long shot. First of all, The service is impeccable. My glass of water would be refilled after just one sip. The highest standard of quality ingredients were showcased in all the delectable side dishes such as the sauteed brussel sprouts, creamy and silky mashed potatoes, outrageous mac and cheese etc. The salads were also nice but the Caesar salad could have been a bit more plentiful. Carnivores can rejoice knowing that the beef is aged to perfection. A trio of ssuces such as Bearnaise, Chimichurri and a sweet red wine reduction accompany all the meat selections. A truly great dining night

    We found Emeril's to be a good restaurant. We had three waiters -this was a little much for me (one w/ fanatical attention to water levels)- but the waiters were just doing their job & they were friendly. I had duck confit for dinner which was plated with waffles. I understand this was a play on chicken with waffles but didn't think the waffles were good enough to be on the plate. Actually my first thought was to question why the waffles needed to be there at all. My husband & son had entrees that were good too, but really, not special enough to warrant the price. We've been systematically hitting restaurants famous and not so famous for about 3 years-since since my son has attended Tulane-and overall, Emeril's food just wasn't special.

    This is a fine restaurant with excellent food (crispy pork cheek and pork chop dishes outstanding). The gumbo was very good. Only blemish, the chicken clemenceau was a poor choice, very dull though well cooked, also they might consider an alternative to corn bread. Wine list as good as you can get with some bottles at around $30 so relatively affordable. The only downside was we were sat upstairs next to a group of 12 or so youngsters on a pre wedding celebration, very noisy. Had we not been in New Orleans and had the server (Malcolm and his crew) not been so good, I could have got upset about this and asked to move. I wondered if they felt they could do this to us because we were an open table customer with no repeat potential.

    Had the Bone in Ribeye steak, worth every penny, the best steak in my entire life seriously. My wife had the Fillet, it was great as well, kinda over priced but really good. Had the Cheese Grits, didn't care for that. Also had the Shrimp Mirliton, it was good tasted like my grandmothers. We had some Cornbread with the Gumbo that was perfect sweet but not to sweet. For our sides we had the Mac n Cheese ( awesome ) Green Beans ( Awesome ) Brussel sprouts that were very tasty. The entire experience was wonderful, look forward to going back

    A group of 10 of us visiting for an Anesthesia conference decided to try this gem, made popular by Emeril Legasse. It certainly lived up to the expectation. Food, ambience were spectacular. My only slight hesitation was that the entrees took slightly longer to arrive to the table than I expected, but perhaps that was because of a group of 10 people. That said, they got all the orders correct, and the desserts were excellent as well.

    Very nice ambiance and wide ranging menu; nice use of local flavors and native ingredients. Although somewhat pricey, food is ample in portions. Food is generally rich and aggressively seasoned...not for dieters!!. Only complaint was that drink prices were too high even by city standards. I was charged $22 for margarita on the rocks because they used a premium tequila that I never asked for...special martini's of the night were $15 and rather small. Overall good experience and I would certainly go back and recommend it

    This review is hard to write. I have dined at Delmonico's a number of times at a couple of the locations, but my last visit may well be my last. My wife and I had a 8:45 reservation and could not have been more disappointed. Right from the start, I knew there was an issue as the noise level on the second floor is now unbearable. Our staff was not only overly solicitous, they disappeared for great lengths of time. I can only assume to escape the noise that was pulsing through the room. The steaks we ordered were horrible...even requiring an unusual (for us) return of her dish to the kitchen for a redo. This one is hard to see fall. I loved Delmonico's and will forever hope that we hit them on a bad night. Sad.
