Trying something new
You guys did great! I had a large party for a bachelorette party and you put us in the wine room! Wow, what a treat! The servers and all of the staff were amazing! Thank you for making our night so special!
My Birthday Dinner was amazing and I plan to come back in the future. The food was delicious and freshly made when served...
Absolutely fantastic! All was great!
Service was the best
One of the best experiences I've had at a restaurant! Food was awesome wait staff was amazing! Highly recommend this place!!
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.
Great Business Dinner with clients !Best service and food .Will be back.
Good and service were both incredible. $160 for two of us with some wine and dessert. Lived up to the hype.
Authentic and modern New Orleans cuisine outside the hectic tourist zone.
Absolutely delicious dinner with exquisite servise
Vegetarian options are very limited. That is disappointing.
We sat at the counter. A GREAT experience. You can watch the entire operation, ask questions of the staff and they answered informative and politely.
Best culinary experience ever and customer service !!! It’s always a delightful eat here ..
Outstanding. Great food, great service. Extensive wine list. One of the best dining experiences I have had.
Overall the food was perfect! Omg! I had the duck wings (very tender and good) and for my entree I had the Lobster Fettuccine!! Normally I don’t order dessert, but I did!! I can’t remember the dessert name but it had bananas in it!! VERY GOOD!! Overall the ambiance, food, servers, etc PERFECT!
Amazing good. Great service. Will definitely be back
The service was amazing as always, but the food wasn't all that great.
The service was great but the food was average. Desserts were incredible and it had a lengthy wine list.
Good was spectacular, service was impeccable, restaurant was beautiful.
Outstanding experience. Food is well seasoned for authentic taste. Great wine selection. Dessert...yes!
The food at atmosphere was outstanding, however the service was extremely slow and it took us almost an hour to receive our entrees.
This was my first time at Emeril's after coming to New Orleans for many years. I am so happy that I finally made it. The food was exceptional and the service was as well. I hope to be back soon.
Best food great service wonderful Anniversary dinner
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.
Best place to celebrate a birthday! Great service and even better food!
Anniversary trip. So glad we added this to must do. Everything was wonderful!
Portions were small. Food service itself was very slow. Over 2 hours for a meal is a bit much
It was a wonderul dinner out! We were in New Orleans for a mother-daughters' celebration and this was our main celebration meal. Just perfect - Thanks.
Daughters 21st Birthday, service was great, table was set and ready for us, serving staff were friendly and accommodating. Great food!!!!
I went to Emeril’s 13 years ago with my
Overall excellent and enjoyable evening at Emeril’s. The two of us appreciated our table location, the service, and most importantly the food. The experience was not inexpensive but was well worth it.
Awesome, high quality good value
Emeril’s is always good. We love this location when we are in NO. Service was excellent.
Spectacular food in quality and in taste points matched only by the quality of service. A very consistent favorite.
Service was great. The pork chops were tasty but had a lot of fat. The gumbo was awesome.
Great service. Food was very good. Nice portions. Don’t get the cheesecake.
I have always wanted to visit New Orleans & Emeril’s Restaurant was on that list. I must say I had an amazing experience walking through those beautiful doors & having an amazing meal from start to finish. The wait staff was friendly & very informative.
I can check this off my bucket list!! Amazing!!
Very nice restaurant and great service
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.
