The waiter would walk up to table and interrupt the conversation instead of approaching and waiting for a pause. Was given the dessert menu when asked for cocktail menu.

We have been to Emerils 3 times before this visit. The food seemed to be a little lacking this visit. I had the Lang “T bone.” There was hardly any meat on the serving I received. We had a table of 6. The service was great as always. They knocked themselves out to take care of us.

Good food and service reasonably priced. Tried the stuffed clams, gulf drum and bbq salmon and soufflé-all very tasty. Only hiccup was they did not accommodate my wife’s allergies for the amuse bouche and bread. Otherwise would highly recommend.

Meeting friends that live in Houston for the Saints game and had a great dinner. We have a condo in New Orleans and our bill was about $250 for 4 people with apps 1 drink each and an entree a piece. It is Emril’s so I know it is pricy but I could have gotten a comparable meal in another restaurant. It really wasn’t about the bill but the experience. The service is top notch and really a 5 star service. Food and drinks I would have paid $150, but happy to pay $100 for the exceptional service. In a restaurant like this your service is key and it was right on. Great job!

Appetizers were delicious. However food service was very slow. Took over an hour and a half to receive our entrees. One of our appetizers was served with dinner. Steak came out VERY rare instead of medium rare. Pork belly was hot but the setup of the pork was served cold. They did apologize though, took those items off our bill and gave us complimentary dessert. Would return to see if they improve their food service and dinner timing.

I chose this restaurant for my birthday celebration. I was really looking forward to the experience and it was just ok. The best thing was the BBQ shrimp. Our table had the lacquered duck, fried chicken, lamb chop and pork chop. I would say the pork chop was the best entree. I guess I was expecting more.

Not our first time at Emeril’s. Food was as good or better than we have ever had there. Service was very good except that the primary service person regaled is with too many stories about his past experiences. It was actually entertaining at first but wore thin by the end of the evening. Would suggest he tone it down a bit.
Always pricey but typical N.O. and not so bad as in NYC.

The staff at Emeril's were all very professional. Ty, who was the team leader I believe, made us feel special and was VERY attentive and knowledgeable. I would defitnely recommend this place to anyone and certainly plan on visiting again. Again, big thanks to Ty for the great experience. They also acknowledged my wife's birthday throughout the night. Overall great experience.

The food was excellent as I expected it would be, and the service was solid. While the property is charming, and upscale - very nice. So what didn't I like? This was my 2nd trip to Emeril's, the first being new years eve in 2000. That was a magical experience, 5 star in every way. I was expecting not exactly the same obviously, but a similar dining experience, one that I did not mind paying up for. If I am going to spend money for a classy night out, I expect the complete experience. In this case, it was the clientele that disappointed. I would expect a minimum dress code, that would exclude t-shirts, baseball caps (not even removed during dinner). In defense of the restaurant they do have a dress code which states casual. Unless casual means wear anything you want, a little enforcement would have been nice. Are we just too politically correct to risk offending anyone by asking them to express some level of decorum?

I was about of a girls' trip to New Orleans, and we wanted a nice restaurant to eat dinner with a great ambiance. One of the ladies is getting ready and they provided complementary champagne with our dinner which was lovely. All the entrees were delicious and the service was great. I would return to the restaurant.
