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.

    Excellent service and gorgeous wines; I recommend the barbequed shrimp appetizer, the Red fish, and the Butterfish; for dessert, the Pecan pie (with ice cream and whipped cream (both)).

    Pros: The restaurant was clean Easy to find Food and wine were of a good quality Cons: Noise: Very high Table/Chairs: Mediocre construction Time to take order and to serve the food: Above average. Note: i believe the waiter was doing everything he could to provide a fast service but the restaurant is under-staff.

  • Not Fresh Seafood. Poor Quality!!!!

    Dined on 9/26/2014
    How disappointed I was to take my guests to a "Seafood Restaurant" where the fish had no flavor. The signature item Salmon Barbeque tasted poached not barbequed or even grilled. The potatoes were not freshly cooked and soaked in seasoning. The shrimp in the gumbo had no texture and dissolved in your mouth, a most disgusting feeling. Clearly chemical treated. Never has worse shrimp. My seafood salad was tasteless. All of the seafood was indistinguishable. Covered in a green goddess dressing to camouflage the poor quality. To be clear, I have never taken the time to express such a disappointing meal. I intend to write Emeril personally. He should take his name off this restaurant.

    Huge wine list, almost too big for people like me who can't make a decision. Service was great, they were very attentive to my vegan and gluten-free needs and the server spent a lot of time reviewing all my options. We went at 9pm on a Wednesday night and it was empty, but so were all the other MGM restaurants that night. Food was creative, perfectly seasoned and really fresh. Left stuffed, but really enjoyed the meal - easily the best meal we had during our stay!

    This was our third visit to the New Orleans Fish House. The menu has been updated from our last visit. Althought the choices looked appetizing we were disappointed with the food. The service was very good as we're the drink selection. We may have to think about a return visit during our next Las Vegas adventure.

    Having not been to Emeril's Fish House in 11 years, I noticed that it had been remodeled but the food was as expected. The salmon and halibut were fabulous! Since I am not a fan of blue cheese, my lettuce wedge was dressed with an oil and vinegarette dressing. Also excellent. As Emeril is my favorite chef from the Food Channel, I have eaten a Emeril's, NOLA and Delmonico's in New Orleans and loved every experience. Can't wait to return. The service is excellent as well as the dining selection. Everyone appears to be happily employed. Keep it up. As an owner of two businesses, I like to see happy employees. They are more productive and if they like/love their job, they never work a day in their life.

    Celebrated our anniversary there. The service couldn't be better. Attentive without being obtrusive. The food is worthy of Emeril's name and reputation. The double cut pork chop was phenomenal. Would never have thought to order it there, but the table next to us had it and it looked amazing. Tasted even better with perfect accompaniments, sauces and absolutely no fat. The taste of New Orleans was a perfect desert to share and end an extraordinary evening. The restaurant closed that evening for renovations. Should rate a perfect 5 fir ambiance when completed!

    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.

    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.
