    Food was great. Took awhile to get drinks. Waitress was okay. For what we spent I would have expected higher end customer service experience.

    Second time here, a year apart. Lots of wait staff frantically imputing something into terminals, they should interface with customers! NOTHING comes with the meal, you order fish, that’s all you get. No bread, potato, rice or vegetable. It is availabe A’LA Cart, that’s fine but see my picture of the $3.00 a stalk asparagus! If you can’t do it right do not do it! No side salads, so I ended up with a $15.00 wedge salad. I had two bites before dinner arrived. The bus person grabbed it when I moved it aside to allow my plate to be set down. Our amuse bouche arrived AFTER our dinner plates were down. It was cold. Overall as terrible as the first visit. Other Emeril restaurants have been better. In this area, at that price point BAM! He got us! We will not be back! Too many good restaurants to ever return. I could go on, I really don’t want to trash a place, I try to be truthful, look at any of my reviews. I give the benefit of the doubt always.

    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.

    Arrived for our reservation and not very busy. Still had to wait for a table that we saw was visibly empty. Service was spotty and food was mediocre. We love Emeril but seem to be disappointed every time we visit one of his restaurants.

    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.

    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!

    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..
