Was a tad disappointing in celebrating my birthday and didn’t even get a “happy birthday”. I loves the wait staff, very polite and knowledgeable. Feel the food was tasty but overpriced. I’m not a big eater so the suggestion to even split the soup was very very commendable. I had the lobster cake which was excellent and husband had the Drum. He stated it was less than desirable. I too had a bit of that and can say that I was not impressed. A nice restaurant to experience but for us, probably won’t go back.

Awesome service and food! I don’t normally try a chain restaurant, but since this was the original thought it would be worth it. So glad we did!! The staff were the best, and you can’t beat the atmosphere.

We started off really well. There were four of us and we decided to ordered several appetizers instead of entree. And 2 soufflés for dessert The service seemed really good and efficient and the food was good. As the evening wore on the service became sporadic and went downhill. We had ordered two of two different appetizers and only one of each showed up — oops I made a mistake. Ok. All of the appetizers finally made it to the table and only then did the waitstaff order the soufflés which were to take 1/2 hr to make. We ordered coffee and tea— took 10 minutes to bring me the tea menu. Second round was requested- another 10 minutes and the served coffee was ice cold. Finally got the soufflés without the ice cream. The soufflés were very dry. By now the manager was told we were unhappy. Came over to apologize and adjust the bill. Adjusted a 2nd time when said we never received the ice cream. The final bill came - the adjustments were nice but the glass of wine listed as $15 showed up as $20 on the bill and the tea was $7 for a cup. Very very disappointed.

For the price, I expected to have a wonderful meal. The Bar B Q shrimp was delicious. But I ordered Duck for my main course and the duck was overcooked and dry which is unusual for duck. We have been going to Emeril's every year when visiting New Orleans, but this time it turned out to be just so so. The manager was polite and did not charge us for the my meal. But when staying in New Orleans, we only go to one upgrade restaurant and was very disappointed.

Our food was amazing! We went for a birthday and the managers gave us a sample of shrimp ceviche and complimentary birthday sorbet. Our waiter was very prompt and knowledgeable and my steak was to die for! We WILL be going back!

From the host stand to when we left everyone seemed super friendly and nice except our server. Soon as we sat down, he stared at me and ask “would you care for anything beside water?” Probably would have except we didn’t even have menus. Throughout the whole night the server seemed short and didn’t care to connect. Maybe because we were wearing casual clothes? Maybe because we had a 10 month old? Either way the experience was good. Not great. Maybe I expected more being in one of Emeril’s place. Won’t be going back even if I’m in the city.

Everything about our experience at Emerils was phenomenal, from the ambiance to the service. Thomas our waiter did an impeccable job serving us and giving us suggestions for around the city!

The best salmon I’ve ever had. My boyfriend doesn’t even like salmon and he ate half of my dish.

All of the management checked in at our table to make sure we were happy with everything and also to wish me a Happy Birthday!

5 stars across the board, truly a great dining experience in NOLA!

The only thing that was better than the food (which was wonderful) was the service. All around a great experience, but the service was exceptional. (But it's a restaurant, so yes, the steak was superb, and Bourbon Buzz was delicious!)

Great food and atmosphere. Felt a little rushed as only just finished first course and entree arrived. Pressure by staff on upselling other food/wine etc. Overall a great experience in a roomy out of town venue. Staff very helpful and friendly.

We were in town for one night before our cruise. Going to Emeril’s was a dream come true. We had a great view of the kitchen and got to see where all the magic happens. It was obvious everyone was very dedicated and took great pride in their jobs. I’d just like to say thank you to everyone. The meal superb and the service was impeccable.

He said it was all wonderful, but said the mushrooms were the best he has ever had. We highly recommend Emeril’s.
