Bread poor quality for highBread poor quality for high end resteraunt. Bone in rib eye was not great. not like the bone in rib eye in las vegas delmoncas in the venition. Staff was amazing though. More like a saltgrass steak5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBrilliant.With it's impossibly elegant dining room to its impeccable service to its lovely presentations, Emeril's Delmonico is so brilliant that even though, as someone who is gluten intolerant and doesn't eat meat, there is almost nothing I can eat, it is nonetheless my favorite restaurant.
I've dined there many times, but this was the first time with a two year old toddler. Although she didn't appreciate the whole experience as much as I did, she did love climbing up and down the beautiful stairway, affording my wife and I the opportunity to alternate dining alone.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful Mothers Day BrunchFood and service were impeccable. Can't wait till our next time there.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have dined at Emeril'sWe have dined at Emeril's Delmonico's several time over the last three years. Always a outstanding experience. Food is always an experience, meaning you read the menu and just the description makes you want to try because you wouldn't think to merge those flavors in your own kitchen (at least I wouldn't)5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday DinnerThis was a Birthday dinner for my wife, we sat in the downstairs in earshot of the piano player in the bar. The food was excellent - we had the crawfish and corn soup, bbq shrimp and grits appetizer, bleu cheese iceburg salad, and both the filet and the strip were both cooked to order, very tender, and tasty. The side order of mac and cheese was a perfect complement. Great wine list and cocktails.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMTook a group of employeesTook a group of employees here while attending a conference. Everything about this place was wonderful. They also offer free valet parking if you drive there.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was amazing and theThe food was amazing and the service even better. Everyone was very friendly and service oriented. They were accomodating to some dietary restrictions of one guest. I do wish the steaks were not quite as large...they sounded amazing. I did settle for the beef carpacio instead which was perfectly seasoned. We were lucky because we made a last minute reservation and there was availability. As travelers to the City of New Orleans we look forward to trying another one of his places on a future trip.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat family exeprienceGreat food, service and piano bar.

Great food!!!Had a wonderful time with a good people. Food was amazing and creative as expected
Service was excellent. They filled our wine glasses all night. Two of us shared a dish and it came out on two separate plates with a beautifully presented. Service was impressive!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific- almostAbsolutely wonderful experience marred only by a "board meeting" in an adjacent private room - way too loud.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous mealI live in New Orleans and eat well often, but this was one of the best meals I have had in years. To get to the table we walked through the kitchen, which I thought was odd but cool, and it was sparkly clean. Staff was wonderful and helpful. The wine list was vast and staff was able to make informed recommendations. Overall fabulous. Loud, at least in the upstairs room, but that is a very minor complaint compared to the excellent service and delicious meal!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMNot just for tourists.I wrongly think of Delmonico as a place for tourists and had not been in a while, but just enjoyed a great dinner with great service. Only drawbacks are: the downstairs can be noisy and the manager understandably does not want tables to linger on a busy night (so if you prefer that, go to Galatoires). The wine list is just a little pricey but the Emeril's signature wines are superb for the price.
I'm going to add the restaurant to my regular rotation, especially if I have out of town guests.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service. We sat at theGreat service. We sat at the bar and the two bartenders work so well together. My steak came out over cooked but they fixed it in just a few min. Also they paid for my steak. The second time it came out great. I have had dinner at the same restaurant in Vegas a few times and it is always very good.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFine Dining at it's bestFood was excellent, the service was also excellent. The was very nice with a nice piano. The noise level was fine. One could talk and be heard without shouting. Definitely a place to come back.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA Worthwhile ExperienceA great experience during the very busy time of
Jazz Fest. Quiet, Elegant. With attention to detail,
And wonderful and flavorful food. We loved it!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMTable for sixI dined here last week with my friends. We were all visiting New Orleans for the first time and were very excited to dine here. We had been on site seeing tours all day and when we finally arrived for our dinner reservation, we were not able to change into something more "business casual" for your restaurant. Nonetheless, your team was very warm and accomodating. We had a wonderfuld time, despite feeling underdressed, but your team never made us feel unwelcomed. They were very patient with us, from making plate suggestions to chosing a lovely bottle of wine the whole table enjoyed. The amabiance was relaxing and the menu was amazing. We will highly recommend your place to our friends and family.
Thank you for such a delicious experience!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous food, Great ServiceWe were told that you couldn't ever get a table at the main Emiril's location, so we found this one on Open Table and booked it right away. It's a bit off the beaten path - not directly in the French quarter, but well worth the trip. The service was excellent, but not stuffy. The drum meuniere was just to die for and the desserts were fabulous as well. Don't miss it!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMnot to miss experienceWe were in New Orleans for vacation and couldn't miss a dinner at Delmonico's. We ate here on our last nite in NOLA. The experience was fantastic, a great way to top off the trip. The food was the best that we had during our stay.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMPrices high! Fish a winner!We spent our first evening in New Orleans at Emeril's Delmonico. Service was great, staff was friendly and attentive. I would only recommend for a special occasion however because with almost everything a la carte, the restaurant was very pricey.
I had a strip steak which was very good - but it was $44 just for the steak. My friend had the evening's special fish at $34 and that was the winner of the night.
The chocolate chip cookies were also great.
Finishing dinner close to 9:00 it would have been nice to have decaf coffee. Not available.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMsuperb service, extremely noisyprobably the best table service we had had -- for a group of 7 -- in a long time. The food was marvelous. The noise level was so high that we could barely hear ourselves across the table, however.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMUnique and Special from NOLAA very special resturant. Food selection is unique and great. This is not a steak house but has excellent steaks. The focus us local cuisine. Wine selection is one if the best I have ever seen. My only complaint which is minor the tables are quite close together making conversations overlap from adjoining tables. Recommend as a must visit4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMCrab was excellent but theCrab was excellent but the gumbo was disappointing. Sazerac drink was very good. Staff was friendly and efficient.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFood, service, ambiance etc.Food, service, ambiance etc. we're excellent. Though, be prepared for the snippy maitre'd. Abrupt, dismissive and pretty close to the restaurant host in Ferris Buehler.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time.This was our first time. We truly enjoyed everything. The service was wonderful. The waiters were terrific and very kind. The food was outstanding. There were 8 at our table so we tried a variety of dishes and all were delicious. I look forward to our next visit. Thank you for such a wonderful evening.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful anniversary dinnerWe went here to celebrate our anniversary. I had the Louisiana drum meunière and it was wonderful. The sauce was buttery and very flavorful. My husband had the bone in ribeye and said it was up there with one of the best steaks he has ever had. They are the only restaurant in New Orleand that dry age their steaks in house so you know it is done right. The servers were great and even told us happy anniversary again as we were leaving the restaurant. We had a great time!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe staff was very graciousThe staff was very gracious from the moment we arrived until we departed. My wife was all smiles when she was greeted and the staff said Happy Birthday to her.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMBest banana fosters ...andBest banana fosters ...and I just thought they were all equal! Loved the sugared pecans topping. The restaurant is comfortable elequence & the service friendly and excellent. Great menu & amazing marriage of unique ingredients. It will be number one on my list when in New Orleans & as a recommendation to friends.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousWe enjoyed a very nice meal here for our 20th wedding anniversary. Charcuterie plate was nice, as we're the corn muffins. I had a delicious cocktail called La Otra, I want to recreate it at home. We split a large steak & side of mushrooms. Steak was perfectly cooked and sherries mushrooms were some of the best we've had. The waiter recommended we try the cinnamon beignets for dessert & they were just right. It was also nice to be able to hear each other.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant was fantastic.This restaurant was fantastic. The food was phenomenal, service exceptional.

They make the most of the space. Steak was cooked exact to order pork tenderloin was tender. Service was always attentive from everyone. Sorbet was perfect. Would definitely return.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThere are many fine restaurantsThere are many fine restaurants in NOLA but Emeril's Delmonico ranks at the top of the list in my opinion. Everything is high quality and the service is impeccable. Attentive but never distracting. The food was so wonderful that we made a point of eating there twice on a short recent visit to NOLA.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMOdd location but right onOdd location but right on a streetcar stop. Great experience.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe MOST AMAZING service IThe MOST AMAZING service I have ever experienced. Our water glasses were always full. Four staff waited on our table. The personal attention made it a great dining experience. Oh and the food is amazing, obviously!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWE were put in a room thatWE were put in a room that could accomidate 50 comfortably. The room had 60 people. In the room were 4 large round tables that had 8 to 10 peole each. these large tables were very loud as guest shared conversations across the large tables. our table of 4 had difficulty having a conversation due to the loud round tables of 10 and 8.
The food was excelent as was the service.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMeal to die for.Probably one of the best meals of my life. Our group had a fantastic time at Delmonico. Everyone ordered a variety of items off the menu and all stated that it was definitely one of their top meal experiences. I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys complex comfort food. I'll be back the next time I am in NOLA.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGlad I selected this venueGlad I selected this venue for our quiet special night out during our recent stay in New Orleans for a business conference.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMHad the ribeye steak and amazedHad the ribeye steak and amazed as to how good it was and cooked exactly the way I ordered (medium-medium rare).

Will be back.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMI have always wanted to dineI have always wanted to dine at an Emeril's restaurant!!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great fun, pricey wine.Very enjoyable special evening to cap our long weekend in the Big Easy. Having eaten frequently over the previous few days, we chose to split a few appetizers and a single entrée. Prices were as expected, though I was surprised the wine list was as extensive and expensive as it was. I can appreciate that many guest have a discriminating palette and a deep wallet, but not everybody falls into that category. I thought I'd look over the wine list, but before I could realize I was outgunned the sommelier arrived and pointed out several recommendations that were a week's pay for me, and he didn't pick up on my discomfort quick enough for my taste. Kinda made me feel small. We stuck with a few $15 glasses that still cost more than our food.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMOur group of 4 was in townOur group of 4 was in town for French Quarter Fest, and after 2 days of rocking the FQ, we were looking for a respite. Delmonico's fit the bill perfectly.

It was amazing! We took the streetcar from our hotel to the restaurant, which added a nice touristy aspect to the whole evening. The food, the wine and the atmosphere were all spectacular. We couln't ask for better. I had the crawfish gnocci and filet mignon, while hubby had gumbo and striploin. All were excellent. We also shared the charcuterie sampler as appetizer. We will definitely return again on our next visit.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMService was great. RestaurantService was great. Restaurant was beautiful. Wine selection was very impressive.
