Asked for a high top( which there was one left). The hostess told me to hold on and she would take care of me once she sat the couple ahead of us. Two people came in and checked in stating that they the same time as I. The hostess asked where they wanted to and guess what yes they said high top. I have her a look but she just looked away. We sat at a table in a traffic area near a exit door where smoker would come and go.
Food was ok and the waitress did take care of us.

Obviously during COVID the noise level is going to be less because of the spread of tables and less guests. Seemed to be at "full" capacity and it was still quiet.
The food was fabulous, our server was wonderful and all in all we enjoyed a night out of the house.
Might try the outdoor seating next time. It is a quaint patio next to the off street parking lot. Lit by twinkle lights, it looked like a nice place to sit as an outdoor option.
We will be visiting again and maybe bring friends next time!

Been going to emerald rose for years-always delicious-always difficult to choose what to order. Prime rib Friday -yum. Salmon with lobster risotto-fabulous, chicken piccata-super good. Appetizers are so tempting. Greeters - ridiculously competent, friendly and efficient. Prices reasonable, service always fast. Best restaurant in Billerica!

The food was overall good. The salad was the only disappointing. The greens were not our favorite and the small tomatoes were hard as rocks. I expect better at the Emerald Rose, as we go there often.

We have been coming to Emerald Rose for many years. The last few times I’ve been disappointed with the quality of food.
My swordfish dinner came to the table cold and fish was overcooked, my husband’s fish and chips the fish needed another minute or two in the fryer. The chicken pot pie is very salty and looks more like something out of plastic bag bought from 3rd party vendor not freshly made.
Not sure we’ll be back anytime soon, which too bad. It was a good place to grab a nice dinner.

Jeannnine, So sorry to hear about your recent negative experience at The Emerald Rose. We try very hard every day to put out quality food served at the correct temperature so I was very upset to learn about this situation. We clearly need to try a lot harder, which we will continue to do. Thank You for your business and your feedback. Hope you will give us another chance. Gary Oleson

Love this place and will be back, but tonight's food was cold and took forever. Our server was amazing, and service was the best we have had here. But our entrees took a very long time and arrived with cold risotto on both plates, undercooked swordfish, and cold maple syrup on the salmon. For the price of these entrees the food should be served hot and not just be thrown together. We could have complained about the cold and undercooked food, but didn't have time to wait any longer for a new one and the waitress was too nice to bother with our complaint.

Coming to the Emerald Rose to eat is like coming home. We are always greeted warmly and treated so well. The staff is excellent, starting with Gary and Trish. Always makes us feel so welcome. I've tried many things on the menu and have never been disappointed. We live in the area and tend to do a lot of entertaining of guests by bringing them to the Emerald Rose and so far, everyone we've introduced the restaurant to have loved it as we do. The only complaint I would have is that the acoustics are not too good and the noise level with people talking, etc., can get very loud. That's the only negative to the whole experience of visiting the Emerald Rose.
