The service and ambiance was good. Unfortunately, I decided to get the seafood paella, which was awful. Having tried paella many times, this was well below par. The sauce was unrecognizable and without taste. Why did they stop serving the Etouffe, which was great. But my server was great and was most gracious and brought me something different. I will go back, but will never order the paella again.

Waitress Krista was sweet and helpful but at the same time, let us go at our own pace and left us to chat and catch up. Much appreciated. Dinner was great and worth the price. And Emeril himself was there, so what more could you hope for?!

One of us had the sea bass. It had a fishy taste. Two had the crab cakes. There were 2 kn the plate, both a nice size, but very bland. The corn hash was very good. The last had the shrimp and grits. Cant compare since none of us have had grits before. The brussel sprout side we had sounded better in the description. They were actually undercooked. All in all, not a great dining experience. The service however, was very good.

When this place first opened it was a major letdown. But now it has come leaps and bounds since then, presentation and food quality is terrific, great service. Most times I prefer it over the Chop House.

We have been here a few times...for us it’s the ONLY place to eat at Wind Creek! The wait staff is very professional and friendly. The bartender is on pointe. It makes our experience so memorable. (Even if we lose in the casino!)

Emeril's Fish House had a good selection of cocktails and wines and nice selection on the menu. Overall a good experience. The food and drinks were very good. The service was polite and helpful but very slow: we waited about 15 minutes after checking in for our reservation to be seated though the restaurant was not crowded. Our waitress was very slow to appear as was our food, and our dinner for 5 people with cocktails, appetizers, dinner and desserts took over 2 1/2 hours. Was not fond of having to leave the restaurant and walk through a smoke-filled casino to use the restroom.

We have dinned at Emeril's Fish House before. We were disappointed in the food. The seafood paella was blah. While I tried to explain this to our server she quickly threw a dessert menu on the table. The plate was hot but most of the food was luke warm. We visit the Casino every other month. Maybe we will have to try another option.

Very beautiful restaurant, classy. Our waitress explained everything, and was very attentive without being in the way. Now this is constructive criticism. It was our 47 wedding anniversary, and we both ordered Tanqueray gin and tonics. Mine was right on, my wife's tasted like a double, and she only had a couple of sips, and I finished it.

We split a wedge salad, and it was big enough for the both of us, and very good. The blue cheese crumbles came mostly in a lump, but still very good.

My wife had shrimp and scallops, which she really liked, and I had the Seafood Paella, which was very good, but I question why you would include such small muscles. Let them mature.

Overall everything was very good, and thank you for the ice cream. Yes, we will be back to try something from the land.

felt rushed by our waitress not very friendly waitress , some food was good cold shrimp ,little neck clam s ,hushpuppys, but steak my husband had had gristle running thru the whole steak it was cooked well tasted good and he hates throwing any food away so he ate it anyway . my husband talked to manager about it (not looking for a free meal) but a discount would have been nice since the meal was VERY EXPENSIVE $145.00 and manager could see all the steak that could not be eaten but gave us a piece of pie (which was not that good either) to make up for a bad steak we looked for a nice place to eat for our anniversary but were very disappointed with our choice it was our first time there and expected so much more and would not recommend the fish house

I have often recommended the Fish House to my friends. It’s always difficult deciding what to order because there are so many tasty dishes on the menu.
Krista is an excellent waitress. We always try to have her serve our table. However, when Krista is unavailable, everyone else that served our table has been excellent.
Good food, reasonable prices, and nice people make this restaurant a must!!

Except this time. Too much breading on the oysters. It took away from the taste.

Will not go back. Made a reservation, got there 10 minutes early and greeted warmly and were told that it would just be a few minutes to get our table ready. We decided to get a drink at the bar and told the host we would be there. 15 minutes went by and we checked on the status of the table and were again told that they were getting it ready and would just be a few minutes more. Another 15 minutes passed, we went back again to check and were told that they had called our name 3 times and they ended up giving our table away. They did finally accommodate us, so at this point we told the waitress that we were going to the 8:00 show (it was 7:10 by now). We were served 25 minutes later (after the table seated next us who sat after us already got their food.) We rushed to eat, were not checked on until we had to leave and honestly the food was overpriced and average. Very disappointed.

Excellent service from Greta. Host stopped by and chatted with us. Greta was helpful in advising us on our food and drink choices. Food was served with appropriate timing and quality was very good. One of my husband's side dishes was not served and we could not get anyone's attention to ask for it. Someone should have checked in with us after the food was served. I indicated on our Open Table reservation that it was my husband's birthday and also informed the host after we were seated but it was not acknowledged in any way. Although some of the small touches were missing we would still return to this restaurant.

Althouth Emerill has his name on the restaurant and some of the standard food items from some of his other restaurants, this restaurant lacks the same quality service. The hostess initially states that out table would be ready at our reservation time, in approximately 15 to 20 minutes. My wife went to restroom upon hearing this. 2 minutes later our table is ready but I requested to wait for my wife to be seated, expecting the table to still be ready when she came back in 5 minutes. The other hostess seated someone in our place. This restaurant was more than half empty but we were rushed by the waitstaff. The waitstaff failed to completely set up our table. It lacked salt and pepper shakers as well as the lit candle. My wife noticed the lack of a candle as every other table had one. To make matters worse the waitress proceeded to put all of the missing on our table as we were paying the bill, as she was setting up table for next guests. We were still seated there. It ws obvious that the staff works for thr casino not the restaurant. The food is good, not great. Would I eat here again or recommend this restaurant no.

We were sat a few minutes after scheduled reservation time which was not a problem however it was ten minutes before waitstaff approached the table. This slow service continued for the whole experience. Slow service can be forgiven if the food is fantastic, but it was just okay. We ordered two appetizers and two entrees and all were fine, just not great enough to keep me coming back to this restaurant. Additionally, we picked an 8:15 reservation so we could enjoy the piano bar portion of the evening as listed on the website however this was not really a "piano bar" experience so much as a guy sat down at the piano and played and sang quietly. I am not sure he was even able to be heard if you were more than 15 feet from the piano.

Well the night was great. Fantastic show and Ray even won money at the casino so we decided to go have dinner at Emerils Fish House. I ordered a burrata and heirloom tomato salad. (They ran out of heirloom tomatoes so it was mostly cherry tomatoes) it was still good. I ordered Halibut and Ray ordered a jumbo crab cake. We waited over an hour after they took my salad and nothing .We asked if there was a problem and the waitress returned promising that they are working on it. Long story short we asked for the check for what we ate so we could leave. That was harder than getting the food. The manager approached us at the front desk and without hearing the whole story he blew us off and walked away. The asst manager was much nicer and asked us to come back and give them another chance. Hmmmm. @Emerillagasse may want to send his team to check on this place.
We are sticking with Bobby Flay and Michael Symon when we visit restaurants of TV chefs.

Seated 20 minutes later than reservation at a dark, snall table 10 feet from gambling hallway queue. Table was wet, could barely read menu. Zero ambiance (no viewing of chefs preparing as per website), noisy, Waited 50 minutes for food. Oysters were good, prosecco was good, calamari tender, entrees a bit sloppy, Emeril coffee okay, creme brûlée awful. Not a beignet to be had either! Emeril has left the building! This is not a destination restaurant. Dreary casino reeks like an ashtray. First time and definitely the last.

This is the second time we have eaten at Emeril's Fish House and we enjoy it very much. It was my fiance's birthday and they brought him dessert with a candle in it, which was very nice. The excellent food for the value is second to none. I would highly recommend it. Thank you.

First time to eat there, and the food was tasty and rich. I found it interesting that there was one waitress taking drink and food orders, two woman serving the food, and one manager. It appeared to me that lean six sigma did not work as efficiently as they may have wanted.

People had to wait for their checks, refills on drinks, and there wasn't single person walking around asking how your dining experience was.

The atmosphere and the quality of the food made up for their short staffing issues.
