The team at Emeril's took amazing care of our party and treated us like royalty. We truly had one of the most amazing dining experiences of our lives between the incredible food and the service being above and beyond our expectations. Thank you for making our celebration so special at the chef's table - we cannot wait to visit again for more bbq shrimp!

We went for my mom’s birthday and the 50th anniversary of her becoming a USA citizen. The service was excellent. They went above and beyond for us. We felt welcomed and comfortable. The food was delicious, portions generous. Overall, an wonderful dining experience!

Celebrating our 28th wedding anniversary, busy staff found time to make it a special occasion. The food was delicious and prepared prefectly. Reservations suggested, ours were right on time and didn’t feel rushed. We will definitely eat here again.

The great chef was there! Emeril was leading a meeting of the professional staff who were quite attentive as we observed the discussion from a polite distance. From all that we could see at the time, and, as we tasted later, the staff were organized and courteous. The room was pleasant. We will return!

Overall it was good experience. Service was excellent! My Gumbo special was delish! It had the right amount of spice and was flavorful. It also had a good balance of seafood, broth and rice. Sometimes, when making gumbo, noobs put too much rice which soaks up all the juice or broth. 😂 Emeril’s did not do that. Moms gumbo is still better though. LOL! But, gumbo at a restaurant is usually not that good. Emeril’s did a good job on it.

Had the drum which was fabulous. However, the side dish was fried shoestring potatoes which were difficult to fit into my mouth and really didn't compliment the dish well. Poor pairing.

Thoroughly enjoyed dinner. I had the pork chop based on other reviews and it did satisfy! Tender and so well flavored. The highlight was the banana cream pie for dessert. It’s not your typical custard, but stacks of fresh bananas. Would love to go back. Definitely better than the Las Vegas Emerils.

Being our first time to New Orleans we had to visit one of Emeril's restaurants. The service surpassed our expectations and the food was first class. Hats off to our 3 servers, these gents were professionals and knew there stuff. We felt like we were fine dining, but much more relaxed. The dress code could have been a little stricter, but people overall seemed to dress nicer than what you would see in a fast food chain. I would highly recommend anyone visiting NOLA to add it to there itinerary.
Hats off to the staff and to Emeril for making us feel like being guests and not just customers.

Kind regards

Excellent service and food. Between the four of us, we ordered nine items and all but one was over the top delicious. The glazed salmon didn't have much flavor in comparison with the andouille encrusted drum and the scallops on special. Great time. Good wine list.

I came here with a group of friends during Mardi Gras. The food and service were excellent. The pasta is really good and I had the marsh-mellow ice cream which was also yummy! Recommend if you’re looking for a fancy/nice meal out in NOLA.

Ordered 2 of the exact same entrees (2 people) one was correct. One was wrong it took more than 10 minutes to correct so my co-worker waited to eat their meal unfortunately.

Also forgot to put in one drink order.

Waiter was apologetic.
