Downstairs was awesome. Upstairs was boring. We had 3 servers and still had to wave someone down almost every time to get something. For the price and experience, it was fun and had a great meal and time, but won’t be back

We had an amazing time. The food was perfect. If you are a steak person this place is not to be missed. I can't say enough about the staff. Everyone was kind and attentive. They did a great job. One of our favorite meals in NOLA.

The food was fabulous. The wait staff was professional and knowledgeable. We always dine at Delmonicos anytime we are in a city that has one and New Orleans definately lives up to the name! I would highly recommend dining here!

The food was delicious and our waiter, Johnny, was great and had many good suggestions for choices on the menu.
The ambiance was good. There were several wait staff serving our table and it became confusing who we should speak to with our requests.
We had a great time.

As an aside, we are 66 yrs old and we were able to climb the lengthy stairway to our table, but was surprising and possibly should be mentioned with the reservations.

While the food was excellent (as always), our server was less than pleasant. Pushy. He brought us our check during our dessert instead of waiting until we were completely finished with dinner. This is not acceptable at an Emeril’s restaurant and certainly not when we spent over $250 for two people.

This restaurant is resting on its laurels if it’s name. We had outstanding service, who guided us to some of our choices. One of our favorites was the special of the day crawfish gnocchi. That be said, the rest of the meal was just there. Between us we had a 16 oz porterhouse without a speck of garnish on the plate. Just the meat. A swordfish which was dry and the gulf fish with Cajun rice? While the gulf fish was tender and cooked wonderfully , it came covered with a half a plate of sauce and inspired rice. We paid double what we paid for the then everywhere else. Save your money, go to GW Fins .

Everything was great until the bill. We paid by cash. first, we were asked if we wanted change, which always irks me. Why not, "I'll be right back with your change" to give me the chance to say, "Not necessary" instead of assuming I want to leave a $75 tip on on $225 meal? Then, the waiter came with the change, literally thrust the cash in my hand , curtly saying, "here's your change" and started walking off. I had to ask him to leave my copy of the bill. Totally unprofessional.

Emeril's Delmonico was one of the best meals of my life! It had a great atmosphere for our group gathering. We enjoyed the live piano! The wait staff was helpful, kind, and had a great sense of humor! They went above and beyond their duities to give us an amazing dining experience. The food was cooked perfectly and was very flavorful. We really enjoyed this restaurant and would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a fine-dining experience!

I am so glad we found this place! What an outstanding meal! The service was perfection and the food was even better than we thought it would be. The steak was so flavorful and the sides were extremely generous portions. I wish we had saved room for dessert, because all of them sounded amazing! We will definitely be back the next time we are visiting New Orleans.

A classic white-table cloth and excellent service steak and seafood restaurant, with Emeril's touch. The wait staff was attentive but pleasant and engaging... with the occasional BAM! to lighten the mood. Food was overall excellent (though the plantains were a miss). Quiet elegance overlooking the streetcar line on St Charles.

The restaurant had ‘hidden’ a gratuity on an invoice separate to the bill. The included gratuity was not shown on the itemized receipt (which did include a space to add a tip), only on the credit card invoice. It was therefore not apparent that a tip would be incorporated into the final price and resulted in me unknowingly adding a second tip. I only discovered the discrepancy later on. This is an underhanded way to squeeze customers for more money. I shall never again visit any of the restaurants in this chain and shall advise my friends and family to do likewise.

I was very much looking forward to dining at Emeril’s Delmonico l, but was sadly very disappointed in the experience. The food itself was very good. However, the service was terrible. The waiters were not professional. There were three of them service our table, and instead of leading to attentive, superior service - none of them seemed to know what to do. Ever single item we ordered was given to the wrong person at my table, they forgot items that we ordered, made rude comments about how much we ate, and even broke glass and spilled wine on another diner in the restaurant while we were there. Also, although the restaurant is very pretty, the ambiance was lacking. There was no music and something seemed to be missing. Just know haha this is not a fine dining experience as you may have expected.

Of all of Emerils Restaurants this is by far the worst! It starts with a very very poor hostess. Decor upstairs is very dated. While food was ok and wait staff overcame some of the bad taste in our mouths from the very poor hostess it was not sufficient to recommend.
