A word from Emeril's Tchoup Chop
Emeril's Tchoup Chop (pronounced chop-chop) is the hottest table in Orlando, and Lagasse's second location at Universal Studios. The name offers a hint of New Orleans' famous Tchoupitoulas Street, home to Emeril's flagship restaurant, and the bold culinary term "chop". Located at Loews Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando, Emeril's Tchoup Chop offers a dining experience unlike any other created by the famous master chef. In both atmosphere and menu, Emeril's Tchoup Chop offers diners a unique and exotic journey through the Pacific Seas with a delicious experience of Asian and Polynesian influences complemented by his signature bold flavors - a perfect complement for the Royal Pacific Resort. Although walk-ins can be accommodated, reservations are highly recommended. Our dress policy is casual with no tank tops for men. Ryan Vargas, Chef de Cuisine, and Andy Vaughn, General Manager, are dedicated to providing you with that memorable dining experience.

    We eat here every time we visit Orlando. The food is exceptional. Because they are a resort hotel at Universal they are very understanding and accommodating of kids. Still they provide an exceptional dining experience with amazing food and cocktails.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006

    The ambiance is spectacular as soon as you drive up to the restaurant; there is valet parking available and is well worth it. The restaurant is absolutely breathtaking from the moment you walk in and the infinite pond with lillies is a very nice touch of elegance to this already gorgeous restuarant. The host/hostess were more than welcoming and we were seated immediately; had reservations. The wait staff was more than friendly and were eager to explain every detail about both the food menu and the drink menu. The food was scrumptous and well paired with side dishes and the drinks were stout. Overall, I would definitely return to this restuarant whenever in the area. A+++++++++++ service all around.

    A real gem. The food is incredible as is the service. Wait staff is attentive, knowledgable and courteous. The cuisine is unique and flavorful. Outside the hustle of the CityWalk area, Tchoup Chop is a perfect place for a beautiful night out.

    We decided to try Emeril's food in Orlando. The location was near Disney World and the decor was Polynesian. The decor was beatiful. I believe I ordered fish. The food was good, but I'm not sure I would ever go back because of the food.

    I actually teared up while eating here. The food is orgasmic. I went so I can say that I went to one of Emeril's places, but I was shocked at how good the taster's menu was. I don't live in Florida, but whenever I go I make sure to hit this place. I've been going for over 5 years and it is still stellar. I've been to a few of his places and this is hands down my favorite.
