My daughter lives in New York and was home here in Atlanta visiting and my family is from Portugal so we all thought this would be special.

The food was delicious, and well prepared. Interestingly all the main courses came with the same sides (potatoes and red cabbage). The portions are large, and we had quite a bit to take home as well. We'll definitely be back!

This was our second visit and it won’t be our last. First of all, the atmosphere is LOVELY! Gold chargers, beautiful chairs, soft cream drapes. I had tilapia this time, salmon the first time, and both were excellent. Nice sized serving, complete with potatoes, cabbage, broccoli, and a slice of eggplant Parmesan. There was a delicate and flavorful sauce - not overpowering. Price was $18. The service was perfect - efficient, friendly, and unobtrusive. So happy to have Emidio’s in the neighborhood!

Place is ok for a casual diner who hasn't experienced authentic Portuguese food. I however have growing up in the northeast close to a major hub of that type of food. I can honestly state it doesn't compare. I'll continue to scout the Atlanta area for a good Spanish/Portuguese restaurant.

My experience here was great. We came in about an hour before closing and were greeted with a warm welcome. The service was just as great as the food. All the items were fairly priced and the portions were large enough for two meals. Definitely would recommend and I’m looking forward to returning.

Our meal was excellent! A variety of Portuguese, spanish and Italian dishes. Wine prices were great with a good list from Portugal. Don’t let the outside strip center fool you, the inside is quite refined. The start of service was a bit slow, lesson learned they wait for the entire party and you order tapas and entrees at the same time. When everyone arrived, service was amazing and food delicious (shrimp tapas and veal dishes especially ) finishing with one of the best creme brûlée’s I’ve had in a while. We will return!

Warmly greeted and seated. Great wine suggestion. The veal was wonderful as was the chicken dish. My clams were a terrific appetizer, but my wife felt her mussels were a little overdone. No dessert that night, but did have a delicious cappuccino. Carmo was very friendly, we will return.

We had a table of six. It was right at an hour before our food came. Fortunately we had plenty of good conversation to pass the time and when the food did arrive it was wonderful and hot! Worth the wait but keep in mind if you have small ones that might be impatient.

Great find! Our experience was wonderful from the moment we entered the restaurant 'til we finished the last bite (second order!) of their homemade dessert! Best paella we've ever had, including on our trips to Barcelona! Attentive, but not intrusive, quality service. Overall, a superb dining experience!!

Food was delicious/service was terrible- one waiter for about 14 tables- the waiter could barely breathe he was running around like a nut- the food was delicious but 1 hr and 40 wait for dinner is too long for me and at that point we were so aggravated we barely ate it.

We found Emidio's to be a wonderful, comfortable, family owned and operated gem fairly close to where we live. The menu was limited due to it being Valentine's day and we are looking forward to going back to try their regular menu items.

Thought I'd make a trip to this restaurant after returning from Portugal and reading the restaurant's good reviews. The food was fine--not great but not bad either. Our waiter knew nothing about Portuguese food and couldn't give informative details about the difference between dishes, nor could he give much wine information. He also was less than attentive, despite a fairly quiet restaurant, as every time I needed him I had to signal someone else to have him attend to us. The prices are modest, but the experience is too. I would not go out of my way to dine here.
