Emeril's Orlando encompasses everything that Emeril stands for - high energy, bold exciting flavors & a memorable experience. Chef Emeril Lagasse's fifth restaurant, Emeril's Restaurant Orlando, is a fitting addition to the line-up at Universal CityWalk. Upon entering the restaurant your eyes take you on a ride up the metal staircase, across the Gertjejansen artwork, down the wall of wine, over the Ochsner portrait & stopping for a moment at the food bar. By this time the staff greets you with the warmth of a welcome home. A drink at the bar, maybe a classic New Orleans cocktail to start & then you are seated. The dining room bustles with energy with a view of the chef & the brilliance in the kitchen. Although walk-ins can be accommodated, reservations are highly recommended. Our dress policy is casual, but no sleeveless shirts for gentleman & boys.

We were recently there for a late lunch, the food was fine but the service was abysmal. We arrived before 2 and were no served our sandwiches until close to three.

Just wanted to have night out on the town with dinner and dancing. Food was okay but pricey. Two people 1drink, 1 salad, appetizer, 2 entrees =107. Tip $130. I live in Orlando and I probably will not go back. Just go to your favorite restaurant (longhorns) and you will be better off.

Two of our guests were delayed in arriving, so we had to wait to be seated, but the restaurant was very accommodating and got us seated immediately after their arrival. Food and service were excellent!

We had an excellent waiter. Our service was good. Our only complaint was our table was right near the kitchen and the door was open the whole time so it was a bit noisy.

Prices were very high and mine was the size of an appetizer. They also did not have the wine I drink by the glass so I had to have another type I'm not familiar with and was not impressed with it. The main part of the restaurant was VERY loud so I was very happy they put us upstairs where is was a little more quiet.

We were very disappointed. One of our party did not receive his entree until the rest of us were almost finished. Our water glasses sat empty. The acoustics were terrible and we could not hear each other above the restaurant noise. We were seated right next to the kitchen, whose doors remained open the entire time we were dining. We were privy to broken dishes and the general chaos of a busy restaurant kitchen. On top of that, the food was ice cold. We have had much better fare in our hometown restaurants (Charleston, SC).

Enjoyed our family dinner. We had a couple of steak specials and the salmon. Everything was very good and cooked exactly how we asked for it. The Mac n Cheese was very good. We loved the noodles in this dish. Recommend for a nice meal convenient to Universal.

Great food and service. Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Orlando. We really enjoyed all of the entrées and appetizers. Fun environment as well.

A bit slow on the seating, but everything that followed was very good. Drink prices are a bit steep but that's to be expected in a theme park environment. Overall, a good time, but its gonna cost you.

We came for our first time ever for Valentine's Day. My husband had the tenderloin and lobster bisque. I had barbecued Salmon and barbecued shrimp. (I had to order a second shrimp because they were so delicious). The biscuits are like red lobster biscuits on crack! Delicious! Everything was wonderful!

I was trying to plan a nice restaurant to go to for my girlfriend and I on Valentine's Day. As I was reading reviews of different restaurants it was hard to find a fine dining restaurant that had more than four stars. Emeril's has always been a restaurant that I have wanted to try but was discouraged when I saw a few websites gave it lower reviews. On our evening dining in the restaurant we arrived at 750 with a reservation for 8 p.m. we were immediately seated. After looking over the menu I decided to get the beef tenderloin and my girlfriend got the scallops. Both were absolutely amazing the beef was so tender that I didn't even need to cut it with a knife in the scallops had so much flavor. Our waiters Chris and Sean where outstanding. I would also like to note that the management team did a great job of checking on every table and constantly coming by to see if we needed anything or to take anything off the table for us drinks never made it below half full before being offered a refill or more water. Overall it was a great experience and I recommend it to anybody looking for a more sophisticated dinner in CityWalk. Even if you are looking for something around Orlando I would say it rates very high against the rest of the high-end dining locations around the city.
