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.

    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!

    I brought my husband here to have a birthday dinner. The service was excellent. The food was tasty. I had the red fish which was excellent! Hubby had the roasted chicken, I felt it was tastt. Hubby preferred my dish over his. Anyway, it's a must to visit and dine.

    Outstanding food and ambience. Service was top notch and attentive. Explanations of menu and specials given with no questions left unanswered. Took a large group there and we were seated on time, even after group size shrunk. Management didn't blink an eye and quickly set about reseating table for less. Overall, a great dining experience

    We had both some amazing food here & some mediocre food. The pretzel rolls were great as was the appetizer of asparagus & trumpet mushrooms. The sausage gumbo & the fish that were served as part of the main course were terrific as well. unfortunately, the shrimp were extremely overcook & the side of noodles had no flavor or seasoning. Service was fair. Very extensive wine list.

    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

    This was my second time there. On this occasion I went with a colleague while we were at a conference in Las Vegas. He is a vegetarian,I am not. From the greeting at the entrance,the service throughout was special. We emphasize service in our profession,so recognize it when present and sincere. The meal,as one would expect at any Emeril's,was outstanding,from appetizers and drinks,through main course to desserts. The next time I am in Vegas,it will be with my wife--I know she will be in for a great experience.

    We have eaten at three of Emeril's restaurants in New Orleans, one in Orlando, & one in PA, We have always enjoyed our meals and this was not an exception. We both had the Baked Oysters Bienville. These are a real treat for oyster lovers My wife had the New Orleans Shrimp Creole and I had the Pecan Crusted Texas Redfish. Both were delicious and just what we were looking for. The wine list was extensive, but my initial choice was not in stock. The head waiter apologized profusely and substituted a more expensive wine. Our service staff could not have been better -- very friendly, very professional, and very effective. We have found through the years that Emeril Legasse's restaurants have always delivered a quality dining experience.!

    The food was ok. Service excellent. The prices could not be justified by any means. Seafood stew - a few clams, few mussels (2 dead) a couple of shrimp and a small piece of fish. $30+. I've eaten this from San Francisco to Barcelona -- your Seafood stew is not a $30 meal. $10+ for the pecan pie. It looked like something made by Sara Lee with a scoop of ice cream on it.

    The food was very good. We got the 19 dollar lunch special so we picked gumbo; chicken po boy, and the banana pie.The ratio from the bread to the chicken was off. The chicken needed to be bigger for the bread size sandwich but the chicken was delicious and the fries could of been fresh cut personally. Gumbo was good and the pie was good too. The atmosphere for lunch was alright, a little dark in there for lunch time I think.

    We have dined at Emeril's New Orleans Fish House at MGM on a number of occasions. Each time we have a wonderful time and outstanding food. We always have the gumbo which is excellent and reminds us of our hometowns in Louisiana. I had the frog legs this time and they were some of the best I've ever eaten. The service was also wonderful and the staff was very attentive. Great place for dinner or lunch.

    We chose Emeril's to be our "special - all out" dinner while in Las Vegas for the Barbershop Harmony Convention. We were not disappointed. We learned the name of an absolutely delicious cheese, which we intend to follow up on and find here at home. Food, service and friendly atmosphere were tops. Only slight negative was noise - but then, that is Vegas.

    I have dined at Emeril's in Orlando, South Beach, and Atlanta so I am no stranger to the product. I wanted to have a special diner with my girl, so because she is from New Orleans and she had heard good things about it herself we made reservations. We ordered from the prix fixe menu, she had the kale salad, creole shrimp, salmon with couscous, and pecan pie. I had the garden salad, clam chowder, trout with crawfish tails, and banana creme pie. I would say that everything was decent and forgetable, with the exception of the desserts. Nothing was bad, nothing was exceptional. The service was very good, the restaurant space itself was very nice. A nice evening, not disappointing but definitetly didn't have that "pop" my other visits had.

    We were at the Fish house to celebrate our daughters 21rst birthday, Her Pork chop plate was a little dry, My Husbands Shrimp with different fish medalions was disappointing it only had one kind of fish, my crawfish tails with fish were very tiny tails and the fish was very disappointing for the money it was NOT worth it. The waitress was very kind and apologetic, tried to be very helpful, she was very nice. We could not recommend this place. we will be going to New York in late September and we were going to look for emeralds restaurant there now we will look elsewhere for fine dining.

    Wife and I arrived in LV on Saturday morning. Wife attending a three day conference. Reserved a table at Fish House the first night. Arrived quite early for the reservation time but we were seated promptly and had a table along the outer glass walls. First thought was it was going to be noisy but really was not. Enjoyed watching the Saturday night party goers heading out for the evening. The waiter was prompt and attentive although not particularly polished. We both selected from the prix fixe menu - DW selected steak and I had fish entre. Food and preparation were very good although not overly creative. We both had wine and the per glass selections allowed for a nice pairing. Very enjoyable evening.
