Service and food were as expected excellent. Upstairs in the corner adjacent to the Service hall not exactly a great spot to land. Won’t let it prevent us from returning but will be more specific as to where we want to be seated. Ground floor definitely preferred.

By far the best dining experience I’ve ever come in contact with. Brett, our waiter, was extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of the menu. The cherry on top was the “Good Samaritan” picking up everyone’s check in our dining room. It was the most pleasant restaurant experience I’ve ever encountered!

We thoroughly enjoyed our valentine’s day dinner. We made our reservations and came in at the reservation time and were sat immediately. The restaurant was always full so we were surprised to not have to wait. The service was impeccable and so was the food. Would definitely recommend for date night or for any special occasion.

It was a wonderful experience. We had the Caesar salad and the Gulf Shrimp Bordelaise. The greens were fresh and tasty and the Shrimp Bordelaise was well-portioned, with tender shrimp and perfectly cooked pasta. The bread served prior to the entre is cornbread that tastes more like, "Cornbread cake," as one of our waitstaff commented. I highly recommend that if you are in New Orleans, you make it a priority to dine at this restaurant.

 (Las Vegas)·Dined on February 11, 2018

Horrible service. Ordered side orders that didn't come until after we finished our entrees. Asked our waiter about the cheese on the charcuterie board and he said "I would only eat one cheese, so that's all I can speak to. I don't know about the others". At the end when after the credit card receipt was brought to the table, the waitress asked us three times had we signed it yet. Extremely rude and rushing. There were three tables in the entire downstairs dining room at this time.

 (Chicago)·Dined on February 10, 2018

Service was outstanding - sometimes a bit too attentive (probably due to slow evening because everyone was at the parade) The food was hit or miss. The bbq shrimp were amazing, the pork chop was perfect. The gumbo was bland (a shock for an Emeril signature) and the dry aged steak - was disappointing- it had a poor flavor. The brown butter spinach was good but served at room temperature. The wine and vintage champagne list was impressive but we had to send a cocktail back to the bar -a first for me in New Orleans. Our server was amazing and the bananas foster was very good. I am glad I went but with so many outstanding food options in the city I doubt I will be back.

Sad to say it is a shell of its former glorious self. Emiral should fix it or send it to its grave.
Fried green tomatoes sysco sourced. Shrimp Creole heavy handed. Drinks pretty good. Player piano in bar is just not right. Service good and room is nice but can't make up for overpriced tourist baiting food.

Birthday dinner for my husband. They did a wonderful job with the service and the food was excellent! We had the BBQ shrimp and boudin balls to start, then he had the veal and I had the bone in aged ribeye (with plenty for a leftover steak lunch!) We were accommodated in the back dining room which was quieter and more intimate. For dessert we were treated to the chicory creme brûlée with New Orleans donuts (forgot what they're called). Definitely recommend Emeril's Delmonico for a special treat!

Food was great, service was poor. While we were still dining, they started changing the room for an event the next day. They were moving tables and making a lot of noise, which was very distracting. It was my guest's birthday, and no one told him happy birthday at all while we were in the restaurant even though it was written within our reservation description.

Spectacular building, professional staff, Emeril’s best kitchen. Everything on the menu is special except the steaks. Mine was overly rare in spite of my instructions, but was remedied, but disturbed the flow of our dinner. Barely forgivable in a high end restaurant. My advice is avoid the steaks and appreciate Emeril’s gift with complex dishes.

I don't think it's quite fair to write a review based on only two dishes, but at least I can give my opinion on those two items. EXTREMELY disappointed in the oyster po' boy. I should have paid closer attention to the description—egg salad on a po' boy? Okay, but only if it adds to the dish. In this case, it was all I could taste—the eggs and the bread. The oysters had no flavor at all, and if there was aioli on the sandwich, again, I couldn't taste it. I've had better po' boys from local grocery stores.

The opposite was true of the barbecued shrimp. Full of flavor, but it seemed oddly heavy, with the cream and the sherry. I'm used to traditional versions of this dish, so that was a disappointment.

Great resturants in NOLA, this isn’t one of them. Despite the name on the door, nothing here that is above average. Fish dish was swimming in butter, green beens over cooked, and bananas fosters poor. Service was responsive but uneducated. Plated appetizer and first course together, needed to be reminded to remove dishes etc. very expensive for a average meal and experience
