    Overall the food was ok. When it finally came out (after over an hour) some of it was not the correct temperature. The best thing was the steak...much better than all the seafood. The live music they had was too loud; we could barely talk to each other. The server was great, but we did not see him very often. Overall I expected more, probably would choose to spend my money elsewhere.

    Once seated, we enjoyed our night. However, on arrival for our reservation, we were told we would not be seated for 30-35 minutes, which was very disappointing. Not a good start, but a good outcome.

    I made reservations for 8 PM via the website (open until 9 pm). Then that evening the hostesses texted me multiple times and called to ask me to come earlier because they wanted to maybe close earlier. I found this to be rude and unacceptable. I made my reservations a few days in advance based on my schedule that evening. I was in Destin to visit my brother who is in hospice care and the restaurant is hounding me to come early. I wanted to stay with him until visiting hours were over, but really my reasoning shouldn’t matter. If they don’t want to accept 8 pm reservations so they can close early, then they should close those on their reservation system. I’ve never had a restaurant of this caliber try to not honor their own reservation system.

    This was our first time at Emirils’ and it was an absolutely wonderful experience. Every food item was 100% delicious! The atmosphere could not have been better. The service was top notch. It was my wife’s birthday, she’s from New Orleans and this was best possible place to celebrate by far! We fully recommend anyone/everyone to go and experience the finest restaurant in Northwest Florida!

    The restaurant was beautiful. The servers were polite. We were just so dissatisfied with the food. The portions were small, they were so small even the plates they served the meals on were small. We orderd the steak. It came with nothing else on the plate but the steak. No garnish, it could have come with 1 carrot, or something else. The meal looked so petty. Not what you would expected from an award winning chef. We also ordered the stuffed shells. Don’t bother, You get a better tasting meal at Olive Garden. This was our 5th time here, while I’m happy to say the service has improved, the food has NOT and of course the prices are so inflated for what you get. Hard to justify— over priced and poor value.

    Valentines Day. Late seating with a reservation. 1 hour 20 minutes sitting at our table before the wrong orders showed up. Original orders showed up 10 minutes later, medium beef tenderloin cooked well done and calamari served burnt in a bowl of grease.

    Everything was great except one of the servers ( the assisting one, not our main guy) took our water before we were through. We’ve been here a few times and this has never happened 🥺 It was busy so we understand but just something to note bc my girlfriend was so thirsty after her fish sandwich. We didn’t bother addressing at the time to avoid awkwardness/ just wanted to go home. Otherwise Thankyou again!

    Wait staff were overall very friendly and solicitous . The kitchen staff did not however have timing of service which caused one diner to wait while all other diner’s were served. That is unfortunate. It was not busy in the kitchen.

    The name is the only big thrill here. Food was subpar and very expensive. I don’t mind paying $100 per person for a good meal but this was not good. Chicken was dry and overcooked, denied option for a chopped wedge salad, bread was dry and seemed stale. Waitress not friendly at all and only smiled when she delivered our check..

    What happened? I usually order the fettuccine Nero because I love it. This time it was inedible. Hardly any jumbo lump crab, the Calabrian chili and almonds were missing. Could the arugula been spinach? 2nd waiter picked up my plate and said nothing. Primary waiter was slow, drinks took a long time, 3 of 4 drinks all you have to do is pour in a glass. My wife got the creole seafood pasta special and said it was tasteless. Our friend got the fried seafood platter and loved it. His wife got grilled grouper which was good but such a small portion she ended up helping her husband eat the seafood platter. Hoping the food and service will be better next time.

    I have always loved Emerils and looked forward to going every time we come to Sandestin. At first we received Luke warm water, salmon had no flavor, vegetables were soaked in oil, and the one dish I raved to everyone that I suggested to go is the brusssel sprouts that they no longer have on the menu. Sorry for the bad review but I was so disappointed and had been looking forward to going for months.

    While the food was wonderful the service was below par. One salad had to be asked for a 2nd time. All glasses were nearly or empty and had to ask for water. The celebration light and cotton candy was fun and dessert was delicious, however the cappuccino was never delivered and had to be removed from our check.

    Overall this meal was just ok. The wait time for our drinks was 30 minutes. There were 2 of us. The seafood platter was a lot of food and taste was just ok. The pork was good, but surprisingly no sides, no bread at the table just the single piece of meat. Our server was polite but scarce. It was hard to get water glasses refilled regularly. It was New Year’s Eve, but the restaurant was not super busy as we expected…just inefficient wait staff imo. Hmmm, for 250 for 2 people we left disappointed.

    There are a few kinks that need to be worked out. I reserved a table in the dining room, but was told that one wasn’t available. After a little work, that was rectified. Cocktail orders took quite a while to arrive. At one point I ordered another glass of wine, but ended up cancelling the order because I was almost finished with my meal. The key lime pie is outstanding.
