Mike and team were fantastic. My son and I greatly enjoyed our food and it was what I would expect from Emerils.
Are waiter was trash and the food was burnt and to top it all off there charged my meal and someone else's. Had to go back to the restaurant to get my money back horrabke go to Vivo or Cowfish way better in service and food.
The worst service possible spoiled a birthday celebration, twenty minutes for drinks, 40 minutes for entrees; which of course arrived at room temperature. Our waiter was nowhere to be found and it seemed as though no one was in charge.
This spot puts the Emeril’s brand to shame. Stay away from this spot.
Underwhelmed at Emeril's Orlando. I expected much better quality but the food was salty and by comparison, I ordered the same dish the prior evening from another less well known restaurant and the shrimp were double the size with much better authentic flavor and the cost was less. I realize this on City Walk but it still should live by its name and increase the quality of their meals.
Food is great. Great wine selection. Servers are friendly and attentive. Acoustics are bad and result in a very loud environment when dining room is full. Kitchen is mismanaged. Took over an hour to get an entree. Same for 6 other tables around us.
For spring break in Orlando, Bacon jam turned into pork jam (not as good) and braised beef was removed from the menu. We were a little disappointed there was no braised beef (something we've had several times before), but the replacement dishes were pretty decent (but more expensive)..
The food was good but the service was very poor. Totally surprised at the service received for Emeril’s.
Had a great meal and our waiter Keith was very nice and entertaining had a great time
Hanger steak was way under cooked asked for medium well was practically Raw took a long time to get our entrees close to an hour but overall place was very busy and everything was good when we finally got it
Excellent food and atmosphere. Great break from park. Relaxing. Banana cream pie the BEST
First time. The food was great and great service. Really enjoyed the cornbread, delicious. The scallops paella was fantastic. Great sauce. Very different from how I make paella. Loved it.
The meal was lovely, salmon delicious!
If you like good food it's probably the best choice on the city walk outside universal, if you hate big chain restaurants.
Fabulous way to end the day after universal.
Great! We had fun
The food was amazing. Their beef was creekstone which made it 100% better to begin with. The food was so good I cant stop thinking about it. The waiter didnt smile much but that didnt matter once we tried our meal
This was my third visit. The first two visits were wonderful. This visit failed to meet expectations. We arrived before our reservation time and were seated promptly. We were given water and then waited while other tables were seated. After a brief time, our drink order was taken, and we waited. That was okay because we were not in a rush. The Service Staff are professional and polite. Our dinner order was taken, and the long wait began. It appeared we were forgotten, because the tables seated around us where given their meals first, although they arrived after us. Finally, the dinner arrived, although my meal was slightly warm, and my companion’s meal was cold. The error was corrected for my companion. I just ate what was provided. The food was well prepared and very good. The Staff apologized, and a Manager arrived to say our meals would be not be charged, and Emeril's would give us a dessert as an apology. We ordered a shared dessert and coffee. When the bill arrived, the entrees were not charged, however the dessert was and the other meal costs. We did not say anything since we were not there to create a problem. We apparently misunderstood the Manager who said the meals would not be charged and we were getting the dessert as an apology. I presume this was just an off night for Emeril’s and not an indication of how they typically provide service to their guests.
It was amazing. Everything I expected and so much more. I can't wait to visit again!!!!!
We were here for our wedding anniversary and it was noted when the reservation was made. We were sat in the loudest section of the restaurant directly behind the host station. It was very loud and not the best spot for an anniversary. We had a main waiter and then his helper Dan, I'm it sure of the main Walter's name because we saw him 2 times for a total of about 45 seconds. Neither were that personable but were polite. I would have liked to have seen better service overall and maybe more attention to detail. The food took a while to come out but was very good. Overall for the cost I could have gone elsewhere and had better service and the same quality meal.
Amazing dinner sitting at the counter in front of the wood fire oven! Kitchen staff were super engaging! They were willing to answer questions and share their process of the food they were preparing. They generously shared extra small bites for my husband and I to sample. We had lamb and the shrimp and grits. The lamb was the best meal I’ve ever eaten! Sitting at the counter also removes the visual clutter of City Walk and allowed us to truly enjoy our dining experience!
For the cost, we were expecting much better food. I’ve eaten at Emeril’s in New Orleans and this paled in comparison. Maybe it was just an off night, but the food was bland & boring.
Loved everything. The baos were as good as any we have ever had; the salmon was the best!
Took my wife for a special occasion and we tried the churrasco... Wow, best we've ever had. The restaurant was too cold and the service was acceptable but for the price, should've catered to us a bit more. We asked to be moved to a warmer part of the restaurant (there were tables available) and were essentially told no.
Great food and service
Food wonderful. Seating with a view great. Sally and curt were a great
Thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Emeril's Orlando. Excellent service and all of our dishes were wonderfully flavored. Wonderful way to celebrate two special occasions.
Service took forever and food was blah
Food was excellent and well prepared. Banana cream pie is wonderful and bananas are not necessarily my favorite.
We hadn't been since 2008 and had such a great experience at that time that when we were able to recently go, it was very disappointing. The last time the waiter addressed us by name, it seemed more intimate, and the food was exceptional. This time, the greeter totally ignored us for at least 5 min, we were finally seated and our waiter took awhile to even bring us water. It was loud and just felt touristy. The food was ok.... had to send the dessert back ( they did take this off our bill) but just overall disappointing.
Would not go again
Excellent food and service
This was the first time I have eaten at Emeril's; it will not be the last. The location, the food, the servers; everything was absolutely delicious.
Great meal from start to finish - bbqed shrimp appetizer, main of seared tuna with Brussels sprouts, and a pot of chocolate for dessert. Yum! Can't wait to go back.
We waited a long time to receive our appetizers. The server later only charged us for one. He was apologetic and professional
It was cold where we sat. Service was great a bit pricey but that was expected in City Walk.
Excellent service, good food, wonderful banana cream pie for dessert. Noise levels can be a bit high with multiple large groups of 15+ seated nearby. Hint: Arrive at Universal CityWalk after 6:00pm to avoid a hefty parking fee.
Overall a very disappointing experience. While the service was really good, the food did not deliver on quality. The cornbread came out dry and slightly burned, so we had to send it back. The entrees (the yellowfin tuna and the mahi mahi) were reasonably good, but I expected better quality and more flavor for the price. We ordered carrot cake and banana cream pie for dessert, both of which were disappointing. The cake was really dry and did not have a lot of flavor. The banana cream pie apparently used unripe bananas and was also severely lacking in flavor. I definitely would not recommend this location.
Dining at Emeril's was everything I'd hoped it would be and more. The staff greeted us warmly and professionally. The wait staff was very attentive. Our particular waiter shared our love of cuisine and said he had been there 8 years and loved it. It showed. The food was well prepared and was the true focus. The fried green tomato appetizer had a depth of flavor with the tartness of the tomato contrasted with the sweet heat of the pepper jelly and the smoothness of the pimento cheese. The pork chop was cooked perfectly, juicy and tender. The sauces and sweet potato were perfect accompaniments. All the depth flavors married perfectly together. Then the waiter brought out banana creme pie the likes of I have never seen or tasted before... excellent.
Overall a dining experience of a lifetime for me. A fan of Emeril's for years...well worth the trip. From VA vacationing in Disney but couldn't pass up going. I am so glad we did!
Hostess worked with us as we were late for our reservation. Chloe took amazing care of us, accommodating our requests. Steaks were spectacular!
Never asked me how my wine was... it was not good. I didn’t even drink it and he still charged me for it, didn’t offer anything else!
