    My girlfriend and I were in Bethlehem for the Runner's World Half and Festival and I need to do some carbo loading before the races. This place was perfect. The food was amazing, and at a very reasonable price, and the service was great too. Would definitely come back to this place when in Bethlehem again.

    Since this restaurant has Emerils name on it, I expected much more. We had eaten at Emerils Burger which was excellent and looked forward to an even better meal here. The server was very personable, knowledgeable of the menu, and very attentive of our table. The food was bland and not very creative. The one thing that I felt was very inappropriate was the clearing of dishes while other people at the table were still eating. I am sure this is how the server was trained, but it is something that should not be done. I don't think I would eat here again. Sorry Emeril.

    Dined on 9/28/2014
    My daughter and I ordered shrimp scampi. It was not made in a smooth garlic sauce, Instead, the shrimp was mixed in the spaghetti with a little tomato sauce. We ate it anyway, but it was not what we expected. The shrimp itself was excellent. The four others at the table enjoyed their meals. The crispy calamari is great. While we are at it, they don't know how to make eggplant parm either. I would not order that again. This I ordered at a previous meal. An Italian place should know how to make these two dishes. I don't have a problem with anything else served there. We find it a treat to dine there, and we will go again. They only serve dinner, so make a reservation or you might have to wait.

    This restaurant was in the middle price range of the 3 Emeril eateries @ Sands Casino Bethlehem, and provided more entree choices to accommodate our group, which included a vegetarian. Cocktail choices leaned toward the sweet side, and wine list was reasonably priced, although others in the group didn't agree. Very disappointed in the lack of decor. The noise volume was so high, we could barely hear our waiter or each other. As for my food choices, the calamari appetizer was outstanding! The crabmeat ravioli was good, and portions were adequate. The mini cannolis for dessert were okay. Considering the limited options in this locale, I would recommend Emeril's Italian Table.

And as usual, the service was superb, especially that of our server, Autumn. It is always a wonderful experience dining here while at the Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem (as posted on Facebook, 09.25.2014)

    My wife and I loved the food, the service was great, everything was perfect except one little thing.... When we arrived it was about 6:10 for a 6:30 reservation they could not seat us until closer till 6:30 we were told. That was OK. We did not really get seated till 6:40 or so and while that was not a big difference, we had tickets for the show in the event center at 8 so I wanted to make sure we had enough time w/o being rushed. Much more than the time, my feeling was that the reservation did not hold the "meaning" it should have. When I make a reservation I get a sense they see it as "You want to eat here so much that you made sure you could by setting up a time in advance." That was not the sense I got there. Overall 10 out of 10

    Have eaten here several times and always enjoyed the meal. This time the meat ball dish was as usual top notch. The special pork dish wasn't so special and the fish dish was blah. Service was attentive and pleasant. Wine of the day way not up to standard. Way too noisy this time, with TV's showing college football games, turned it into a sports bar. Not the reason you go to a Emeril's.

    Dined with my family for my fathers birthday and for another special occasion. Unfortunately our service was extremely slow, our food was okay at best and the decor was very boring for being an upscale restaurant. For me, I could get just as good if not better food at the Olive Garden. We sat for nearly 2 hours for 4 adults and 1 child (4 yrs old). Would not recommend.

    Very enjoyable date night. Everyone was pleasant and accommodating. Our food was amazing, from the proscuitto shrimp appetizer, to our salads, and on to our entrees. My husband enjoyed the taste combination of the pork tenderloin special and I will definitely have the spinach crab ravioli again! Our daughter is a hostess at Emeril's, so we of course always enjoy seeing her. It was also nice to see the individuals she works with, who all made us feel welcome and part of the family.

    I tried the roasted pork loin special. It was moist, cooked perfectly, amazing flavor. The sides were prepared with the same care and added texture and color to the meal. There was a lively vibe in the dining room but my friend and I were still able to enjoy a good conversation...look forward to trying other menu items next visit!

    The food was very good! The acoustics were extremely loud; making it difficult to converse with the people across from me. The waiting staff was horrible. The waitress came to our table once. Our food was served by some man; not a waiter. He proceeded to pass our food to us from across the table. We were short water glasses; never brought to us. Those that did get water only got one glass and ended up eating the ice for refreshment. When it came time to pay the bill; we had to stand by the bar and try and flag someone down to help us. Thankfully, for the restaurant, we were not the kind of people to skip out on the bill. We could have done that very easily! I would not go back!
