A word from Emeril's New Orleans Fish House
Chef Emeril Lagasse gives this New Orleans seafood house his signature 'Bam!' with a menu of market fresh fish, shellfish, steaks and his "New New Orleans" twist on Louisiana's Creole cooking. Paired with a wine list that received Wine Spectator's "Best of Award of Excellence," and an imaginative sea-inspired design by New York's Rockwell Group, you'll feel closer to the ocean than the Vegas Strip.

    We asked for a quiet table and were accommodated. The service from a team of three was superb. We split the cold seafood appetizer platter - excellent choose. Very fresh, ice cold. I had the signature sweet BBQ salmon. Different and delicious. My husband had the seafood pan roast that was quite good. But the very best was the Huckleberry cobbler. Real berries, fabulous crust. All in all a very good dining experience. There is ongoing construction that detracted from the ambience, but won't last forever.

    Every time I vacation in Las Vegas, a visit to Emeril's New Orleans Fish House is always included. The food and service are fantastic. You can't go wrong ordering anything on the menu. Unlike some Las Vegas restaurants, the noise level is low enough to allow you to have a conversation with your fellow guests and servers without shouting. I am looking forward to my next visit.

    The food was good at this restaurant, but not as spectacularly good as I've had at other Emeril Lagasse restaurants. The exception would be the New Orleans BBQ shrimp appetizer; a delicious, authentic New Orleans dish. Service was fantastic; good atmosphere also.

    i wanted to do something special for my boyfriend's birthday so i thought i would take him to a nice dinner and show. we ordered steak and some seafood soup. the food was bland and tasteless. the seafood soup had clams that were so overcooked and rubbery that i didn't get past the first bite. his steak was full of fat so he didn't even eat half. for being a new orleans inspired restaurant we were surprised that the only thing edible were the absolutely delicious pretzel rolls we were served before dinner. loved the service and look of this restaurant but the food was tasteless and extremely disappointing. ended up paying $150 for an uneaten meal, watching our show hungry, and stopping off at a drive through where we ate every bite.

    Nice, Casual Place. Focus on fish. Good choice of 'fresh market fish' on the menu, plus lots of other regular innovative fish dishes. Extensive wine list. We had very good servers, enjoyed the pretzel bread, shrimp cocktail, butterfish and fisherman's stew. Great dessert to split is the sampler of pecan pie, bread pudding and the banana cream pie.

    HAVE BEEN TO NUMEROUS EMERIL RESTAURANTS OVER THE YEARS AND THIS WAS THE MOST DISAPPOINTING EXPERIENCE FROM SERVICE TO FOOD. ORDERED A BURGER AND WAS LOOKING FORWARD TO A NICE HANDPACKED THICK COOKED THE WAY I WANTED BURGER (MEDIUM RARE). CAME OUT WAS NOTHING MORE THAN A FROZEN BURGER PATTY THAT WAS ANYTHING BUT MEDIUM RARE. BY THE TIME THE WAITER CAME BACK AND ASKED HOW EVERYTHING WAS MY HUSBAND WAS JUST ABOUT DONE AND THERE WAS NO WAY I WAS GOING TO WAIT FOR ANOTHER ONE. ATE ONLY HALF. BILL CAME TO JUST UNDER $100 AND THAT WAS WITH MY BURGER TAKEN OFF! NOT IMPRESSED THIS TIME. WILL NOT RUSH BACK NOR RECOMMEND TO OTHERS.

Everything was fantastic and the service was too. Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for an intimate dining experience or celebrating a special occasion.

    My group of 6, which included a few who had been to your restaurant before, all enjoyed ourselves. We had a very disapointing experience at another well known chef's establishment, so we were pleasantly surprised that Emeril's still maintained his standards of quality, while not being extraordinarily expensive.

    I've eaten at this restaurant before and enjoyed it. But this visit was horrible! The service was really bad. It took way too long to get our food, then when it did come, the server brought the wrong entree to my husband. He did exchange it, but it took so long that I had already eaten my dinner before his even arrived. Also the food I received was cold, but I hesitated it to send it back because I was afraid I would never see it again. They also completely ignored the fact that we were celebrating our 41st wedding anniversary. I am checking this one off my list forever and you should too.

    We had been to Emeril's a few years ago and had a fabulous meal. This time it was less than stellar. We had two people waiting our table that were far from polished. They recommended the House Specialties rather than the fresh fish of the day. One said he doesn't like fish and the other said the fresh fish list is just a piece of fish with some sauce on the side - not very appetizing. Three of us went with the house fish specials, but my wife went with the fresh fish. Her fish was actually good. For the three of us with the specials, you had no idea that you were eating fish. Between the very heavy pecan crust and everything else piled on my fish, it could have been anything we were eating. It simply was not very good.

    This is the third time we've come here and the experience was identical to the last which was 3 years ago, amazing! We had arrived late due to traffic and after arriving 20 min. late, they still held our table. Most would have given up the reservation after 10-15 min. Our server was attentive but not overbearing where he checked on us every couple of min. The food was on point, as expected. The fact that everything is consistently good between long visits, shows the attention that is paid to everything.

    The notables for good food were: Ham bacon mac & cheese, double-cut pork chop, Shrimp Etouffe, Steak and Banana Cream Pie. My hubby loved his pork chop, saying it was the best he ever had. The etouffe and steak were part a Prix Fixe dinner. The steak had a terrific flavor and was tender and juicy. Banana cream pie is big enough for two (or three) and is marvelous. The scene stealer and star of the show was the mac & cheese. It is to die for. My favorite cocktail was the Spiced Pina Sour. Service was good, very attentive at first but when you finish and want to leave you are left alone waiting for the check.

    Dined on 8/1/2014
    Visiting al the way from Belgium with my husband.We received our starter quickly but we had to wait 1 hour for our main course. My dish was disappointing the crawfish was slightly undercooked and the potatoes were raw. Normally the corn and potatoes should be infused with spices and the broth of the crawfish. This dish was cooked crawfish with dry potatoes and corn,seasoned some spices on top. We explained to the waiter and he explained this dish is some weeks on the menu and this is the way it is if we like it more classic way we should go to the one of the New Orleans chains? We didn't had to pay for the dish because of our complaints but I am left with that a Classic Louisiana dish of the best chef of Louisiana WAS A BAD experience.

    Based on the famous chef and high prices you might think you are making a reservation at a higher end restaurant, but you would be wrong. The food was fair, nothing different than what I can find and taste at applebees or outback for $15. The service was terrible, we were seated and then bombarded by a lady taking photos and we didn't know why. Would have been nice if she explained she was taking pictures to try and sell us later, as at the end of dinner they tried to sell us these fancy pictures with Emeril's name. The waiter showed up and asked if he could get us something, we said sure a drink menu, wine list, regular menu, anything would be nice. As no one had brought anything to us and let's just say it didn't get better from there.

    We had a group of seven for dinner. It was a horrendous experience. The service was good but the food was terrible. The shrimp creole topping tasted like a can of stewed tomatoes, the fish was fishy tasting and tasteless and the chicken was undercooked and tough. Emeril needs to pay a visit to his restaurant. If he has dined with us he would have closed the place down. What a shame!

    Arrived at restaurant at 4:57pm for a 5:00pm reservation and we were told to wait 3 minutes simply to be seated. Waiting that 3 minutes I decided to get a drink at the bar after noticing others were having cocktails at the bar and the bartender turned and walked away from me going to the other side of the bar. After chasing him around the bar I finally got a drink. Ordered the soup which was merely broth -- so for $16 this was ridiculously priced. Ordered the same exact drink at the table I had paid for at the bar and was charged more at dinner. Again unacceptable! Ordered an appetizer I typically like to order. It was completely unrecognizable! Out of numerous dining options available to us it was clear I should have chosen the alternative
