Overall I recommend however, the time between entree and main was so long that we had to ask for second bread service and our daughters leftovers to be boxed and her desert ordered before my wife and I ate. Bam! Food for thought.

Having been an early fan of Emeril’s show, I was disappointed in my restaurant experience. The venue was very noisy. While I think the quality of the food was good (with the exception of the scallop appetizer) the food was bland & lacking the flavor I expected from Emeril.

First I'd like to complement our waiter, Juan. He was personable and professional, seems a natural at his job as well as very efficient. The noise level was a problem, at times we had difficulty having a conversation. The fettuccine in the lobster fettuccine was a bit too al dente.

It took us over an hour and a half to receive our food. I was out with a very important client for work alongside seven others including my CEO. We ordered within five minutes of getting there and it took forever to get our food even when we mentioned right from the get go that we were on a time constraint. We were not comped for anything for the wait.

We celebrated our anniversary with a dinner here. We are from out of town so the staff was very friendly on telling us where to go and where to shop. They’re were multiple servers so any question we had or any changes that we decided on last minute were quickly caught. It was a very nice atmosphere and the food was excellent. Definitely will be coming again.
