Hostess and bartender were not friendly and seemed disinterested in the us as the customer. We had to prompt the hostess for our table after waiting 30 minutes. Our server, Autumn, was very friendly and attentive to our needs. She did a great job and made us feel welcome. Food was delicious and served hot.

The service and food were exceptional. I think the menu could change a bit since I do not like fish. I think you should add a pasta dish.

The service turnaround time from ordering to delivery was very slow; others arrived after our party of 4 and were eating dessert before we could get our dinner. Additionally the waitress had an "attitude". In addition, we had an issue with the bill...which she couldn't deal with and sent over the manager. His attitude was worse than hers. This is the first and last time there.

Service was poor and slow. Oysters were butchered by whoever opened them. Shredded. My crab cakes came without the creamed corn underneath. Husband ate 1/2 his ribeye steak. Gummy, thin, small and full of gristle. Charge for steak was removed by manager. We would rather have had a great meal. Most likely won't be returning.

Food was outstanding. Choose the pre fix and had fish tacos, salmon and goat cheese cake.
the fish tacos were the best I ever had. Never had goat cheesecake before but it was delicious.
My husband even tried it under protest and ended up eating half of it. ( He doesn't like goat cheese)
server was new gave us vanilla ice cream instead of chocolate and forgot about refilling water.

Great food and good service but it was very noisy. It was crowded and even though it was, the music was way too loud. The background music was absolutely unnecessary.

We were seated right away as we were early for our reservation at 5:15. Our server Cindy was awesome. She not only mentioned any specials but helped us in decision making as well. We wanted to have small plates and cocktails so we could just enjoy the experience. Cindy was so understanding and made sure we had a great experience. The timing of each course could not have been better. The Kentucky mules were good and the fresh sangria was superb. The mussels were a little smaller than i expected but very good. The steamed clams were good. The grilled grouper was the best I've had in awhile. Cindy did not disappoint when it came time for dessert. The banana cream pie was plentiful but we saved it for later and wish we had enjoyed it earlier. We were very surprised at the value when the check arrived. This is what a restaurant experience should be!

The food was decent but a bit pricy. Despite making reservations three months in advance we had the worst table in the place. Half the restaurant was open and they sat us about six inches from another couple.

I made a reservation and when we got there the people who greeted us where rude. We ran about 5 minutes late and we still had to wait 10 minutes for our table. We also were not even allowed to goto the bar for a drink while we waited? There were empty chairs and were were told we couldn’t go there? Unreal?

We had tickets to the show and food was okay and drinks okay but service was very rude.

Not a fan....

Solid Seafood offerings, service was adequate.
We sat near the raw bar, where Customers can dine at as well.
They did a poor job of clearing dirty glasses and dishes from there as well as taking them off
nearby tables and stacking them there. It was very unprofessional for an establishment
of this stature. The hostess actually moved dishes over to seat couples at the raw bar instead of cleaning
it first. I saw very little management on the floor.

We have been to Emerils several times at the Sands Casino, and the food is always good, this visit was no exception.

I had the Barramundi with a side of cauliflower - it was excellent. My wife had fish and chips - the portion was large, the fish flakey and the fries were piping hot.

The server was great, but we the hostess and checkin process wasn’t good. We were delayed because of traffic due to an accident - we tried to call the restaurant 3 times to let them know we would be about 15 minutes late, and we couldn’t get through. We did arrive 15 minutes late to find we lost our reservation because we were late. After waiting 20 minutes and seeing 10 groups seated, I went to the hostess who informed me she already seated us. We were quickly seated - at least 6 open tables in the area where we were seated. Maybe they were short on staff, not sure.

Overall OK, and we will go back.

PS without the traffic accident, we should have arrived 20 - 30 minutes early. To top this off, we received an email today from Open-table informing us if we were a no show!
