This was my first time back to Emeril's after many years. We had the added bonus of sitting at the counter seats and watching the food preparation. The food was outstanding, the service great and helped take a little of the sting away from the Saints loss (or actually having victory stolen) in the afternoon.

Wonderful experience. We had a great time - sitting with a view of the entrance/exit to the kitchen - watching the staff enter, exit, and hand off the trays. The meal was wonderful and everyone we talked to was friendly and helpful

Great night at Emeril's before NFC playoff game. Place was very energetic and busy. Our group had the clam appetizer, gumbo, caprese salad, mushrooms and bbq shrimp also. Dinner included scallops, steak, shrimp & grits and more bbq shrimp. All dishes were great. Service was also very good. Haven't been here in years, but will make it a point to return again soon.

Super impressed w/ the service. Jordan and Taylor engaging and attentive. Wine list is spectacular (if a bit pricey). Food quality very high and the pairings Taylor (onsite Som') offered hit the mark! Great cocktail experience at bar prior to dinner w/ some nice bourbons and the local standout, a Vieux Carré.

Kitchen staff were also hard-working, highly attuned to detail, engaging and polite while being "on display" from those at the chef-bar.

Went with a large group. A couple of the entrees were overcooked. Several of the dishes have overly sweet sauces/glazes although the menu does give you a hint. Prior visits had service problems but service was fine on this visit.

Our server Ty was amazing! He made it a point to learn our names at the beginning of service and used them till we left! Very knowledgeable about the whole menu. He was always accessible and if we needed anything he was very quick and professional.

Great food and service. Desserts had strange twist - bread pudding was more of a bread tart with cubed apples and bacon?! Elegant dining. Enjoyed everything but the dessert.

It was a nice place for my husband’s birthday and I was pleased they remembered that it was. He especially enjoyed his steak dinner, and his small iced cake with a birthday candle. I did however feel we were somewhat rushed through our meal and my vegetables were missing from my fish dinner entre. It was overall a nice choice for our special occasion meal. The ambience of the restaurant is quite enjoyable.

To the palate of a Chef, it was serviceable. The tasting menu faltered in the last 2 courses. With bones in the duck dish and mis-matched flavors in the final pork dish. The restaurant as a whole was adequate enough, but I'll spend my money elsewhere in the future.

Food took 1 hour to be delivered to our table from the time we ordered jt. Also, staff missed our appetizer order. Chicken was awesome, everything else was just OK - Duck, Tenderloin, etc. Water and bus boys were super good. Main waiter was Ok. Probably won’t go back. Emirl’s other restaurants in town are much better.
