Emeril’s is a great addition to our area. Food and service was very good!
Food and cocktails were great! We tried a little of everything g and everything was delicious.
We made a reservation and upon arriving the host was aloof.. didn't really understand that we were asking for a booth. Upon sitting, the server had a hard time telling us anything about the menu. We asked multiple times about different entrees or recommendations, it was not represented well. The second server who came to pour waters, we asked about menu items and was not met with a very definitive answer. We finally ordered one drink based off the daily specials and the server did suggest it, however, could not tell us what the drink was made of. After receiving it, she did ask the bartender and was then able to tell us. Maybe our expectations were a little high, but we got so frustrated, we made another reservation at Flemings and paid our tab of one drink and left without eating.
So to be fair, I cannot rate the food as we didn't get to eat any of it.
Delicious food and great service. Love the open kitchen and the daily specials!
Second time at restaurant. As good as first time.
Tried new dishes and all have been excellent.
I catch myself putting my fork down and savoring the various tastes in each bites. The pasta dishes that we have sampled are extraordinary.
Service is good but a little forced.
Definite stop when we go to destin from now on
Awesome. Sitting at back counter and watching chefs is an experience.
Took us 2 hours to have dinner. Too long especially during the week with a 6:30 reservation
Great service! My kids love the pocket bread as a starter and the cotton candy for dessert .We eat here when we come to the area for vacation and always recommend it to others!
Service was unattentive, food was average. Would not go there again
Loved the food, staff and restaurant! Thanks so much!
Was a great place to eat, but did not have my Open Table reservation. They did however locate a table for us. Food was some of the best we have had in Destin, Fl/
Food was fine. Service was nonexistent. We have dined there before and wanted to take business partners there for dinner. Was embarrassed by the service. Sorry will not take friends, family nor business partners there again.
This is my favorite restaurant
We had a great time at Emeril's. The service was excellent and not rushed. Food was just as good.
Excellent food and service!
Always a great meal and great service
Food was even higher than expeditions! Service was outstanding! We will return often.
We loved everything about it. The atmosphere was nice. Fire pits on the patio were really nice. Food was yummy and service was over the top. We would Definately go back and recommend it highly.
Just a wonderful experience.
Food and drink was a 10! What really shined was our outstanding service, so attentive not invasive it was like magic. James was truly a 10!
We all felt the same about our night at Emerils THANK YOI!!
We always have a great time here and always suggest it to our friends visit town.
Great meal. The flavors are incredible. So good we canceled other reservations and went back the next day again
The clam chowder was average, the lasagna below average .
The bolognese sauce was terrible, it tasted like tomato paste.
Vacation dining with a lot of great restaurants in the area. Emeril’s ranks at the top for food service and ambiance. We will be back!
My favorite restaurant at the beach. Creative, lively, great food, great service & great decor!
The Best of the Best on the Emerald Coast
Waite staff, Michael and Amanda, were very attentive! We will ask for them next time. As usual the food was wonderful, our guests were impressed. Great place to conduct business or enjoy with family and friends. Best advise is to make reservations.
Great meal with a couple of notes. Grilled brussel sprouts on the daily menu were very flavourful, but quite rich with balsamic reduction. The grilled swordfish was wonderful, except root vegetables were underdone, very hard to cut
Stuffed clams with linguine, perfect
Absolutely, our favorite restaurant in Miramar Beach area. Excellent service and so many choices of food. Highly recommend.
The restaurant was wonderful. Service was fantastic. Our first time here. we sat at the counter and enjoyed the view watching the chief cook. It was my wife's birthday , the staff went over the top making the night special. Food was great. Will be back soon.
Always one is our favorites on the Gulf Coast!
Food & service was amazing and most of all General Manager Annie and the waiter & waitresses treated me and my family like ROYALTY.
Counter seating. Of the dozen seats available we had the worst two - directly in from today the 2 foot tall cotton candy machine, effectively blocking our view of the machinations of the kitchen staff- the supposed reason for sitting at the counter.
After being seated 10 minutes go by before we flag a passing waitstaff person inquiring who will be serving us. He took our drink order then passed us off to a food runner (very green) who was assisting our real estate waiter. Drinks delivered and some questions about the menu were shakily “answered” by the assistant. Bad vibes now, to the point where we contemplated just finishing our drinks and moving on.
Real waiter finally shows up, apologizes and presses us to stay. BTW, the way the counter seating is set up, not only is your back to the entire restaurant, your waiter is always behind you. Unlike anything we’ve experienced.
Service settled down, entrees were the enjoyable, but the free dessert will not be enough to get us back. Too bad our Valentines Day dinner date didn’t live up to our expectations.
We ordered an Italian red wine which we serve room temp. Ours was chilled. The pasta dishes were good, but not outstanding. The vegetables in my bucitini just didn't work with the dish. The Olive Oil Cake was wonderful. Service was great. Ambiance and service were worth the higher prices, but food just didn't wow me like I hoped it would.
Food was amazing. Our server, Micheal, was outstanding. A great experience all around
Excellent service. Got our "Open Table Reservation Seating" in less than five minutes. Moderate menu selections including beverages and wine. One failing was the Seafood Combo with Jalapeño peppers that was WAY too breaded. Could not distinguish which type of the four fish you were eating. DAN
Emeril’s did not disappoint us. From greeting as my wife and I walked in to leaving. Customer service and food was outstanding.
Impeccable service, excellent food, inviting atmosphere. Everything you'd expect from a fine restaurant. Our 5th or 6th time here over the last 2 years, never disappointed.
Emeril's Coastal Italian is rated 4.6 stars by 1993 OpenTable diners.
