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.

    Our great experience at Emeril's began when the restaurant called a few days ahead to confirm the reservation and asked whether we were celebrating a special occasion. Both the hostess and our waiter wished us a happy anniversary. The staff was very attentive and took very good care of us. The food was absolutely outstanding. I opted for grilled swordfish, one of the fresh items of the day while my wife had pecan crusted redfish. one of the house specialties. Though we passed on dessert, they were nice enough to give us a bowl of sorbet with a candle in it to recognize our occasion. Overall a great experience and we'll be back.

    The food and service were excellent. I shared the meal with a guy friend. We ordered appetizers, a main course, dessert and drinks. I'm not big on chicken so I tried to talk him into ordering something else , but the chicken was tender and delicious. One of my favorites cocktails is a basic mojito and not every bar does them well, but Emeril's did :)

    We were a group of 9 who dined there before the Jimmy Buffett concert. We were also celebrating two couples anniversary. We allhad wonderful meals, especially the two that had the steamed clams, 1 person that had the salmon and one who had the steak. We have been going see the concert every year for the past 5 years and have eaten at Emeril's each time. Great Place.

    We fully expected to be impressed with the food simply on reputation alone. We were not disappointed. Everything from the appetizers to main courses to deserts - all impressive! For being land locked in Vegas,the seafood was as fresh as we are accustomed - and we are from the Gulf Coast! Anthony and the rest of the staff topped off a wonderful dining experience! All the seafood dishes were fresh and well prepared. Sauces were wonderful but get them on the side so as not to take away from the freshness of your dish. The wine list is extensive so have the staff recommend something based on your meal choice. We had our children with us and they certainly enjoyed their meals, even proclaiming the redfish was the best ever!

    We had a very good meal at Emeril's. We started with the octopus appetizer, corn bisque with lobster, and crab cake. We enjoyed our entrees of barbequed salmon, fisherman's stew and hawaiian butterfish but the hit of the evening was the hickory smoked mac and cheese! The brocollini and asparagus where great sides as well. The sides were definitely big enough to share and we couldn't finish everything. Great service just added to the evening. I would highly recommend.

    I went to this restaurant with some friends a couple nights ago. The food was great, though a little pricey. I highly recommend the Mojito Tropico, absolutely delicious!!! By far the best cocktail I've ever had. My only complaint was the service. It took 2 hours for the 4 of us to have dinner. Mainly because this restaurant handles the delivery of the food like a fine dining establishment, which it is and I appreciate. They bring every dish out covered on a tray away from the table receiving the food and have a group of servers deliver the plates to the table together at once. This is a nice touch BUT it caused the service for all other needs (taking your order, refilling drinks, getting the bill) to suffer as a result.

    The selection of fish/seafood and different presentations were outstanding. The entire family truly enjoyed their meal. The apple/almond salad was so delicious that we all wanted more. The Texas Redfish and it's sides were the favorite, understandably a signature dish. The steamed presentation of the butterfish was so delicious. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful. Recommend to anyone that likes seafood with a New Orleans style presentation!

  • Emeril's falls flat
    HungryChinaman
    Dined on 10/18/2014
    Emeril's New Orleans Fish House is just another overpriced hotel restaurant. Most of the items fall short in flavor and preparation. The service is very good and friendly and all of the management, bussers, runners etc. were all very helpful. The overall experience was average; mainly due to the food. The food is not as salty or fatty as you would expect from Emeril. However, to make it worse the food lacks interesting style and flavor. There is nothing exciting about the good, and I would argue I've had much better gumbo and jambalaya for 1/3 of the price. The only item on the menu we had that truly enjoyed was the BBQ shrimp appetizer. The clam chowder is pretty good as well, but a bit pricey. Do NOT get the jambalaya!

    We were seated a half hour late and did not have time to celebrate my son's birthday! The seafood appetizer was still frozen and the presentation was bad! We just barely made our 9:30 show. We always eat at Emerils at Universal Studios in FL and always enjoy eating there. We will not be coming back to Emerils in Las Vegas. They did give us all a free drink but for the $600 check it was not the experience that we had expected. Emerils would not be happy;-(

    We arrived with great anticipation, we were seated in the bar first and then moved to the dining room. we sat down at 5:45 and were approached at 6:10 we wanted to order off the happy hour menu before dinner, but since happy hour ended at 6:00 we were told they would make an acception and let us order. It was a good 1/2 hour until we got our drinks and appetizers. We then waited another 40 minutes until our server took our dinner order. 45 minutes later our dinner arrived, it was acceptable but nothing great. All in all the food was average, service was terrible, and I felt that it was over priced. Needless to say we will not be back.

    I have previously dined at several of the Emeril restaurants and found this one to be the most enjoyable. Excellent service staff and on site manager. We loved the butter lettuce and Apple salad. For entrees we chose scallops and Mahi Mahi with a special sauce. Give it a try and you will be thrilled.

    The ultimate in dining disappointment. We loved our experience at Emeril's true New Orleans location, however, the menu in Las Vegas fell very short of much sense of New Orleans fare. We love Cajun/Creole/New Orleans cooking and I ended up having the steak as nothing on the menu called to me. The sauce for the BBQ shrimp appetizer was good, but the shrimp lived up to their name (very small; a larger shrimp should be used for the dish). The ONLY salvation of the meal was the bread pudding was the best bread pudding that my wife and I have EVER tasted (and that is saying something). If you can pop in for a late night dessert it is worth it, however, a full dinner experience is not worth your time.

    Overall experience was good. My boyfriend's dinner was brought out at room temperature/warm. We had show tickets and not much time to reheat the dinner if reheating it was even an option. A bit disappointed I didn't receive any Open Table points for making the reservation and dinning at the restaurant.

The food was not what I expected from a "name" restaurant and I didn't expect to pay the same price for an appetizer as my entree. We would probably not go there again.

    Very disappointing after having excellent meals at Emeril's New Orleans restaurants. Prices very high and the waitress we had appears to have been a Mel's Diner trainee. The salads came out before there was any bread on the table and more importantly before our wines were served. She didn't speak much and didn't describe the dishes, like you would expect from high quality (and high priced) restaurants in Las Vegas or in other cosmopolitan markets.

    What can I say it's Emerils. We sat at the Chef's table and had the 5 course tasting with wine pairings. Portions were large so we had a hard time finishing them before dessert. The wine complemented the food and made the courses even the dessert selections out of this world. When you go to any Emerils anywhere, order a tasting menu. You will get to try food you would not normally eat at home prepared in a fashion that makes you think you died and gone to heaven.

Fish nicely done little neck clams didn't have much flavor but added to dish. Sausage & jambalaya had a nice kick. Not overpowering. Christian was very attentive & even did a little more to try to find us a bottle of wine that fit our taste & budget. Very good service.

    Service was excellent, could not ask for better. However, my husband ordered the Rainbow Trout and his first bit was a mouth full of bones. He said it was good and the waiters continued to ask if he would like something different and ended up giving free drink. My husband ate the fish which had great flavor but was very careful about bones, and there were more.
