New Orleans history and culture has always been and remains my culinary muse. When I first opened Emeril’s doors in 1990, we aimed to bring fresh preparations and infuse creativity into New Orleans culinary traditions and culture. We continue to challenge ourselves to bring our guests an exceptional experience, inspired by the various influences of New Orleans cuisine with a focus on innovation and refinement. The chef’s tasting is curated to be a journey building upon flavors and complexities of our ingredients infused with unique modernization. For New Orleanians and visitors alike we strive to create dishes, and environments that restore and transport people, leaving them happier than when they came to us. - Chef Emeril Lagasse

    This is a mist if you are visiting NEw Orleans. Wine list reads like an encyclopedia of wine. Wines by the glass and champagne are great wines and will find a pairing with any entree. Presentation and flavor of food outstanding. Service, service and more service. Try to get a table so that you can see what is going on in the kitchen to add to your experience

    Fantastic food and service. I’ve been to Meril’s and Nola and this definitely tops those in every way. Now about the price…wow. Wasn’t expecting it to be so high. Possibly the most expensive meal I’ve ever had. We did not even do the tasting menus which are even pricier. So in all, great experience all around but be prepared to pay for it!

    From the moment of our arrival, hostess check in and then being seated immediately even though we were 15 minutes early for our reservation time. Craig our service along with the support wait team was amazing. Craig guidance and intuitive service made our whole dining experience a memorable one and to top it off was very personable and caring. We will definitely be back and just to add ALL our food was deliciously amazing 😊

    Outstanding service! Delicious Food! Amazing ambiance! Having been to a few of Chef Emeril’s restaurants, this one is by far the best! I had the Cajun Salmon and my husband had the Grilled Branzino. Both delicious and cooked to perfection. The bbq shrimp appetizer is a must when at Emeril’s as well. And Omg the brownie s’more dessert….so delicious!! Craig, our waiter, was very attentive and friendly and knowledgeable about the entire menu! Also loved the open kitchen!! Definitely an amazing dining experience! Entire staff was so friendly and made you feel so welcome…. Southern hospitality at its finest!!

    Our server, Barack, was very attentive and made our visit very special. We had an early reservation and we were able to enjoy the atmosphere of the restaurant before the influx of diners. The food was excellent and we appreciated the anniversary wishes given us via a small dessert plate at the end of our meal.

    Fabulous in all respects. Great food, excellent wine list, terrific service, warm but upbeat ambiance - a happy place! No one ever said it was inexpensive, but by no means was it gratuitously over-priced. Wines available at all price points.

    Oysters on the half shell were delicious-tasted like they were fresh from the ocean. The lobster bisque was a little salty. The market fish(snapper) was cooked perfectly-crispy skin and moist tender fish. Huge gap between starters and main course. Overall a beautiful restaurant and friendly staff who presented each dish well. Loved the amuse bouche.

    Was in town for a conference and did the tasting menu with wine pairing. The experience was over the top perfection! Can’t say enough good things about food, wine, service, etc so I won’t. Apparently they have a new direction with personnel and leadership in the kitchen so I would say any old reviews are now obsolete.

    I enjoyed the experience but we had to accept a 5:45 reservation and was told that was all that was available. I wanted a 6:15 reservation. We arrived and the restaurant was empty and I thought it would fill up. We left the rest at 7:45 and there was only 5-6 tables filled up. There was a lot of empty tables. Why did they not allow us a little later reservation?

    You have not been to New Orleans if you did not dine at Emerils. Our head server Donovan elevated our experience to an unexpected level! He is smart, very knowledgeable about each plate and pairing and believe me he will not disappoint you. You have to make sure Donovan is your head waiter. Also Ashley the GM is a treasure. Sharp and alert to every detail she is a joy to this restaurant. Food made in heaven! Thank you Donovan and Ashley. We are coming back!

    Food was delicious in taste and presentation. Staff where friendly and we where pleases. It did however take over and hour for us to finally be seated and we had a reservation. The wait for our food was extraordinarily long and not the nice leisurely European version. It was almost unacceptably too long. We did not have an extraordinarily late original reservation, but the wait staff had to ask two in our party of 7 to choose another entree, because the restaurant was out. Trying to be understanding about staffing and supply chain issues right now, but the experience was still a little disappointing, especially given the price.

    We opted for the tasting menu and it did not disappoint. There was also an option for a wine pairing for each course ($100 I think) which we declined and opted for craft cocktails instead. We found the wait staff to be attentive and informative about each dish we were served. I would add that as I surveyed the other guests, the level of service was not limited to our table. I would definitely recommend the tasting menu but also look forward to exploring the other offerings on the menu during our next dining experience.

    We did the tasting menu and wine pairing- highly recommend! Mike was our waiter and the entire experience was incredibly warm and heart felt. My husband and I dined in late on a Saturday night (the day before easter), and the restaurant was incredibly busy. We felt well taken care of and loved. This restaurant is incredible! We will be back as often as possible. Five stars!
