The meal was absolutely amazing but it was second only to the service. The staff really took care of us from the moment we sat down until we left. A great experience overall.

Great dinner it lived up to its reputation. The only thing that I can say bad was that I wished the portions were bigger. With that said it was the best duck I’ve ever had and I’ve eaten a lot of duck in my 47 years.

New menu was changed and not as good as last menu.
Way over priced . Pork loin was tough.
Very very disappointed and wait staff need better training and better understanding of the menu offering.
Was one of my top five all time restaurants and now I would never go back. Sorry but it was terrible for the money and the food that was served

Emeril's continues to offer exquisite food and sauces, expertly served. Don't come here if you're looking for something simple and quick. This restaurant is at the top of dining experiences -- but you probably knew that already.

The restaurant was just as I remember 20 some years ago. Only seeing Emeril there was the icing on the cake. The staff was very attentive and on their game. The food was outstanding as well.

My husband and I celebrated our 1-year wedding anniversary at Emeril's. Everyone who worked on staff that we encountered that evening was truly exceptional. I can't say enough kind things. It seemed as if we were the only people in the restaurant. The chef tasting with wine pairing was an unforgettable experience, especially since it was far too difficult to choose just one item from the menu. This evening was by far the best culinary experience that my husband and I have had the privilege of enjoying. We can't recommend enough.

Request to be seated in the front room, not the side room. Don’t order the tasting menu. The front room is fun and festive.

Fantastic evening! Food, ambiance, service were all excellent. We have dined at Emeril’s in Las Vegas and Destin, were not impressed. Friends told us to give this a try—-revamped flagship location. So glad we did! Pricey but well worth it.

This is my second time, and definitely did not disappoint. Incredible food, and equally amazing experience. This time around I had two of the signature drinks, and every aspect of the drink just blew me away. My mother is a HUGE fan of Emeril's, and we are a working-class family that does not usually drop a couple of hundred dollars on a meal, so this is definitely a treat. While I understand that Chef Emeril does not like taking photos, I can't say I wasn't a little heartbroken when I asked one of the staff, and they told me that probably wasn't going to happen. I do appreciate Chef Emeril signing something for her.

I’m not sure we’ll ever have a better dining experience. From start to finish, everything was incredible. We had a team of excellent waitstaff that made us feel like we were the only ones in the restaurant. Young Mike and Nick were the best of the best… I’d recommend Emerils to everyone visiting New Orleans.

I was disappointed in the pork loin, it was dry, even after the waiter advised me on dipping the pork in the provided sauce. My friend’s Waygu steak was delicious, that was a saving grace. Overall the food was just ok, too many other places around to pay that much for average food. It looked like it was mainly a seafood restaurant so maybe add a chicken dish and tastier options for non seafood eaters.

On the plus side, Emeril was actually there, waved at our table, wish I could have told him his pork loin sucked and for a $200 plus meal for two, I was disappointed as it was my first time in New Orleans and at his restaurant.

It was such a treat to celebrate Emeril’s homecoming. Everything about our evening exceeded expectations. The flavors of the food, the textures and the presentations were tops. The service was just what I have come to expect from Emeril and his staff. And it was a real treat to see Chef Emeril working his magic in the open kitchen. Now I can’t wait to return to Emeril’s and NOLAS o when it reopens next
