This place is a gem! My party of 8 ordered several different items from the menu. All dishes were fabulous. I would like to give 5 starts to the Salmon Capresse, Garlic Soup, the bread basket, and Seafood Stew. The service was outstanding, the quantities - generous! I'll be back:)

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.

Ambience reminded us of dinner in some of our old haunts in downtown Darmstadt or Aschaffenburg, lace curtains and table linens, formal table setting and wait staff who actual knew proper service.

We were a party of nine and the service was fantastic, the food hot and delicious! Everyone in our party loved the food!
The shrimp appetizer was garlicky with an amazing sauce. The sausage with the tomato sauce delightful. The clams were fresh and full of flavor.
The seafood stew was generously filled with perfectly cooked shrimp, scallops, muscles and clams. The chicken dishes wonderfully seasoned! The pasta dishes were tasty and enough for two people to share. The flan was amazing and light.

Ate here recently, food and service were excellent. I had read that this is a good "romantic" restaurant but found it to be a little loud for that description. We had salmon and snapper, both very tasty and generous portions. Sangria also excellent.

We got their early for a 630 res. Not many people there so the muzak was prominent. I was worried that the muzak was a forshadowing for a cheesy experience and lame food. However we were pleasantly surprised. I had the clams appetizer and the sauce was excellent. Then the special snapper adjusted to be gluten free. Also excellent. Everyone in my party enjoyed their meal and we all had fish dishes. I will go back..for the food not the music. :-)

We thoroughly enjoy Emidio's. Any time we are in the Atlanta area we try to eat there. They specialize in Portuguese seafood dishes, and my wife and I have several favorites each. One thing, in the european tradition, when you are ready for your check, you need to let them know. Otherwise, they are happy to let you sit and converse as long as you wish. We highly recommend Emidio's for fine dining in a relaxed environment.

It's easy to miss this small restaurant tucked away in a mall. We drove right by looking for a "stand alone" place on the street. We were apprehensive as we parked and saw a lit "Open" sign in the window - not typical of finer restaurants. Also, a few of the letters in their marque name were burned out. Once inside we learned not to judge a book by it's cover.

It is well appointed and a lovely décor. We were promptly greeted and seated with wine and dinner menus. After placing out wine and apps order we asked to speak with the owners as we were there by recommendation of friends of theirs. Joe was in the kitchen working his magic but his wife, Maria came to greet us. She is a charming woman who thanked us for visiting and went on to recommend some delicious entrees. I chose a seafood dish which was not on the menu and my wife order a veal dish.

She raved as to how tender the veal was and my mixed seafood was perfectly prepared and the flavors all complimented each other. This is definitely now on our dining rotation list.

Not sure if I should start with not being served complimentary bread or the hour wait for my food. Lets start with the hour wait. I was told the wait was long because they prepare the food from scratch when they receive orders. Doesn't all restaurants of quality do that and it doesn't take them an hour. The food was bland, I had two bites and I left. Do yourself a favor and go to Olive Garden if you want better Italian Food. The waitstaff made no apologize about the wait and basically dismissed me and my husband.
