A word from Emeril's Restaurant
From its first day, Emeril's Restaurant & the multitalented man who reinvents it with every meal became the focus of ecstatic praise. A decade after Emeril's Restaurant exploded onto the culinary scene, Emeril's has evolved & transformed itself for the 21st century by updating its flagship restaurant. Completed in 2000, the innovative details reflect the significance of the warehouse district location, new New Orleans cuisine & Emeril’s extensive wine list. The Food Bar is framed by a tapestry of glass encased spices showcasing the bold & creative flavors that Chef Emeril features. Emeril's state of the art kitchen is visible from the main dining room. Although walk-ins can be accommodated, reservations are highly recommended. Our dress policy is casual with no sleeveless shirts for men, no hats or flip flops. David Slater, Chef de Cuisine, and Kevin Delaune, General Manager, are dedicated to providing you with that memorable dining experience.

    I had always wanted to eat at one of Emeril's restaurants. Needless to say it was worth the anticipation. Our meal was amazing. I had the soup of the day and was happy that I chose it. I also had the swordfish that was phenomenal. I would highly recommend visiting Emeril's while in New Orleans.

    Emeril's has been a part of the Warehouse District scene for decades now, and the food does not disappoint. Other restaurants in the area may have passed it due to innovations, but Emeril's still delivers great food, great setting. Going for lunch was much cheaper than dinner.

    Reservations were simple to make, had to add more guest and they accomodated no problem. They actually realized when we walked in we had an add on guest with out the guest knowing. Very professional team and not your average hostess, I was impressed. We went for lunch. The cheese board appetizer was our favorite, definetly a good foodie item to try. I would go back just for the cheese board. One person loved the oyster soup, chicken and waffles and the BLT with shrimp. I enjoyed the sweet potatoe chips, perfect amount of saltiness and sweetness with crunch. Great lunch location for business meeting.

    We celebrated our Anniversary at Emeril's at the Warehouse District in New Orleans. It was a very nice romantic and elegant dinner. The service was top notched. The Restaurant Greeter was courteous and helpful. Devon, Tyler, and Austin were our waiters. Devon was courteous, polished and metiqulous. All the waiters were very knowledgable and attentive. I watched GM Kevin Delaune constantly monitor service and make recommendations to make service even better. They worked as a well oiled machine... We had the Red Fish served on a "road kill" mashed potatoes and it was splendid!!! The fish was prepared just right. It wasn't dry or "fishy". The potatoes was a thin sheet served under the fish. It was very tasty...

    My boyfriend and I went for our anniversary and we were treated like royalty. We told the host we had a reservation and he immediately saw our OpenTable stating it was a special occasion. The waiter new everything about the wines and we picked a half bottle. He recommended a starter of the sausage; It was spectacular! The complimentary breads were killer. We had 2 or 3 servers keeping an eye on us. They gave us clean silver and plates several times, and they also replaced our water with fresh water glasses after about am hour in. The food is to die for and the service is perfection. Everything they offer rolled into one is worth every penny spent.

    Took my daughters to Emeril's and sat at the Kitchen bar, the menu was inspired, and the food was absoutely delicious. The service and interaction with the wonderful kitchen Krewe made the experience a memorable one, with extra onion rings for my youngest, and extra Gulf shrimp for me!

    We loved everything about this place!! The old warehouse converted into a restaurant has so much character and the open yet intimiate design works great, and if you want to watch all the action, you can take a seat at the bar tables at the kitchen. This was or first time in New Orleans and we had a huge list of "must eat here" places from online research and recommendations from friends, however, this was not one of them. We wanted to check it out because after all Emeril is the original food tv celebrity with mulitple restaurants over the US and we are so happy we dined here!! The food was amazing as expected and price point for what you get is excellent. The service was outstanding and we were given 5 star treatment the entire night.

    I accompanied my husband on a business trip to New Orleans, and we decided to go to Emeril's in the Warehouse District for dinner since we heard so many good things about it. We arrived early, so we had an excellent glass of wine at the bar before being seated. For appetizer we had the BBQ shrimp--the best we ever had. For the main course we had the swordfish. It was very good. Of course, we had to have the famous banana cream pie for dessert, which we couldn't finish, so we took it back to the hotel, put it in the fridge, and enjoyed it the next day. I can't say enough about Emeril's. The food was excellent, and the service was impeccable.

    We had lunch and dinner here while visiting. Clearly the best food we had in NO. For lunch: BBQ shrimp, Kale salad were enjoyed by my dining partner. The gumbo and the drum were delicious as well. For dinner the surf/turf (drum and filet) was excellent. The wine was outstanding with many excellent choices. The sommelier was quite helpful in selecting an outstanding bottle from a new winery. A must for fine dining while in NO.

    Overall, we were really disappointed. The service was very good...until our entree took about an hour to come out (I think actually a little over an hour). Our reservation was for 8:30, so we were starving by the time we got served. We ordered gumbo to start, which was delicious and came immediately. We literally had over an hour of no food, which doesn't seem acceptable at a "fine dining" restaurant. We ordered the fried chicken for two, which was huge and delicious when it did arrive. Our waiter also never said anything regarding the wait. We looked on Emeril's website too, which had a three course meal, but when we asked the waiter about it he said no we don't. Our tab was $125 with tip, I feel like it was a waste for us:(.

    The service was good but the food was not that Good, kind of an afterthought,very disappointed, We started with some apps, cheese plate was good, duck liver toast, did not have duck on it, the pork chop was over cooked for being medium, waited 30minutes for entrees, I think they were trying to impress the table in the kitchen, the fried chicken was o.k., the presentation was cool, and if you call that Southern slaw,no color or flavor, I don't know if the chef was doing any quality checks, it needs to improve, I grew up watching chef Emeril and this was not his food, mac and cheese was dry and had now cheese, salt and flavor, when I think about mac and cheese, I think about large elbow mac and creamy bechamel,kraft was better than that stuff

    I'll start off with the one negative for us, the restaurant was a bit far from our Hotel, we walked there but had to get a cab home. Some of the areas we walked through were not the best. Now, on to the good stuff. the staff at this restaurant were awesome with Great team work, they were very personable and one hundred percent committed to ensuring we had the perfect experience. My gluten free diet was not an issue, the wine list was unreal, and our food was top notch. Our waiter even surprised us with desert for our 1 year wedding anniversary. It was the best meal and the best overall dining experience we had in New Orleans. Outstanding service and the food was dynamite.

It all sounded incredible. Now I hope to someday visits his other two restaurants in New Orleans. A real reason to go back. Don't miss the bathroom.
