Very nice table near the window, without being able to be seen from the outside. Impeccable and attentive service. Both the appetizer and soup tasted great. The veal chop was superb. The wine list is extensive, if a bit on the pricey side for most selections.

Completely disappointing!!! Came to New Orleans to see my son who is medical school here to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary with my husband and daughter. First, despite tables opened downstairs, we were escorted up a steep set of stairs to a barely empty room with the exception of two very loud gentleman. The room was dowdy, in elegant and I felt like I was in a old dank banquet hall. Just wood paneling; actually quite depressing. The service was fine. The food was not enjoyable at all. My burrata salad was awful. Tasted terrible and all I ate was the burrata. My sons steak au Poivre was so peppery that it made it inedible... and he really likes pepper. He left most of it over. The cornbread was dry and no butter. The sides were just ok. Truthfully, a very disappointing and unmemorable meal. And expensive! I’ve been to Emeril’s Delmonico in Las Vegas as well as a few of his other restaurants and this is so clearly not on par with those in terms of taste, service, ambiance. What a complete let down on what was suppose to be a very special 35 wedding anniversary dinner. I will be back in New Orleans to see my son in September, but after this Terrible dining experience, there are too many other great restaurants in New Orleans to patronize!

The fish came out well done instead of rare. The sauce killed the taste of the fish. Do not recommend.

Once again, this was a capstone dining event in NOLA. I have been here several times and it never ceases to provide such a great experience. I had the pleasure of hosting a couple that have never been here before and they continued to compliment me, of course it was all about Delmonico's, and not me.

Will obviously go back and continue to recommend to others.

Bar was great
Two of us ordered the drum
We both felt it was so salty as to be unpalatable
One ordered the pork chop
It seemed unremarkable — tasted deep fried
Was sooo disappointed....

We love Delmonico's. Wife started with Barbecue shrimp which were delicious, I had the Baked oysters that were also great. I had the Filet, it was perfectly cooked and excellent flavor, she had the Veal Chop which we both enjoyed even more that the Filet. Sides of fried green tomatoes and creamed spinach gratine were great with our meals. We don't eat dessert, but having enjoyed the Baked oysters so much, I ordered another order for dessert. They were again excellent.
The service was good except it seem like it took a longer than normal time to receive cocktails after ordering them.

My sister and I went to New Orleans to celebrate her Birthday and we reserved a table at Emeril’s for the occasion. I called ahead to make a few special request and they went above and beyond! From the moment we walked in until we left, they made the night special. From the service to the food everything was amazing. The live piano player even sung my sister a birthday song when they brought out her ice cream. We will definitely be back!

A group of girlfriends and I had enjoyed dinner for a friends 30th birthday. The service was great! The food and drinks came out in a speedy manor also. We were greeted with full glasses of water, a surprise appetizer and free glass of sparkling wine. Each meal served came out quickly and was delicious.

Food and ambiance was perfect. Service was on the ball and everything you would expect! I asked the waiter to surprise me because I couldn’t decide between the lobster d’iberville or the shrimp bordelaise. He brought me out a covered plate and revealed the shrimp bordelaise but he had asked the chef to add crawfish to the dish. “Mini lobsters” since you couldn’t decide. Well done!

Sunday night the four of us had an outstanding meal at Emeril's Delmonico. We could not have asked for more, than the fabulous dining experience we had.
Caviar, champagne, turtle soup, Wagyu beef, great fish dishes and cocktails that were perfect. I highly recommend this restaurant, among the finest in New Orleans.

We were early but were seated within 60 seconds. The free introductory mini-watermelon slice with caviar on top was a lovely, action-oriented welcome. The service is very proficient: quite accommodating without being intrusive, which is difficult to come by in a higher-end restaurant. The Louisiana Drum Meniure (spelling) was probably the most delicious and overall most incredible seafood dish I have ever eaten anywhere, and at 60-years-old that is profound, but I will stand by it. The fish itself was cooked to perfection- flaky and melting in your mouth. The artichokes were also cooked to perfection. The highlight of the dish was the sauce along with the almonds encrusted on top of the drum. The bourbon-pecan pie with the ice cream on top was the perfect topper to an incredible meal. The ambiance is very ordinary, almost mundane, but it didn't detract from the meal. The tables in some instances are very close together (I could easily hear the conversation of the folks next to us) but again....it did not detract from the meal. The prices were reasonable for such a high-end restaurant. Our final bill was just over $100 including two meals, a dessert, and no alcohol. It was truly an incredible dining experience and a most excellent place to celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary.

We were treated to Prosecco at the beginning of the meal with quick & excellent service and the meal was incredible. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great steak and classic New Orleans atmosphere.

My wife and I are locals. Demonico's has achieved excellence in all phases of being a restaurant. I especially liked the tableside Sazerac cart -- and real absinthe is used, if you want it. Our waiter was Kevin, who was attentive and friendly. We split a crabmeat Remick and each had a steak. Everything was great.

Delmonico's is not cheap, but it's really good.
