Excellent ambiance. Creative menu. Terrific execution.
Perfect as always!
Went to Emmaline for husbands birthday. The food was absolutely amazing
I have already told several friends this is the place to go! Service was the very best. Food was wonderful. I will be back soon!
Emmaline is one of our new favorites. Great atmosphere, and wide selection of food all prepared exceptionally well. Service is good, a little variability (our server was not familiar with types of hot teas and seemed surprised when we asked what was avaialble--there is more than one)? Other than small quirks like that, you are greeted with a smile at the door and all the staff are pleasant and welcoming! Pizza's are great, the Italian Wedding Soup is a winner and the scallops were perfect!
My salmon salad was perfect (rare as I had ordered), but one of our party had asked for medium well and hers was very pink. When the waiter asked how it was, and she told him it was too rare but that was okay, he insisted on bringing her another one even though she said that wasn't necessary. We were celebrating birthdays and were gifted with a yummy chocolate desert. Service could not have been better. Lovely place for lunch.
My wife and I have been to Emmaline twice before. Again, they did not disappoint. We have reservations for my birthday at Brennan's, which we also love, but wanted to spend the evening at Emmaline. The service was excellent, and the food even better. Thank you for a truly enjoyable evening.
Made reservations for 10 am Saturday brunch. We probably didn’t need reservations - we were the only people in there for at least 45 minutes. The punch was AMAZING. Cinnamon roll and daily scones were very yummy. I had the Egg Florentine and it was delish - the egg was poached perfectly! We sat in the indoor patio area and it was light and bright. The valet parking was free, which was nice since it’s the only parking option. Definitely would eat there again.
The food is always good here. We had a new wait person so we tried to be patient. Since only one of us was drinking wine, I ordered by the glass. Wine by the glass was almost non-existant. I wanted Malbec. Nada! I finally settled for Pinot Noir. It was O.K. except for the price. I guess this restaurant caters to the business crowd that is not concerned with cost!
Excellent food, service- lots of atmosphere. Beet salad was delicious. Beautiful presentation of food. Bread- yummy!
We had an excellent anniversary brunch at this adorable restaurant today! The food (cinnamon roll, Italian breakfast, and grilled cheese + tomato bisque) was all delicious, and they even provided us with a complimentary Prosecco toast for the occasion. We loved the big open windows and the decor. A new favorite for us for sure!
Absolute worst dining experience ever. Outside of our waiter being wonderful, accommodating and personable, we will NEVER return. The food was horrible, they were out of many items on the Prix fix menu and cannot cook a steak to order, if you like well done meat that you cannot even cut then Emmaline is your place. After the poorest service (waiter aside), terrible food and an almost mixed NYE countdown. The DJ tried to physically attack my husband for asking to play a song even though he didn’t play one song from the decade or year we were celebrating all night. This was hands down the poorest experience I’ve ever had that I can promise I will never return and will let friends and family know that this is not an establishment to support.
Food was horrible and they were out of all of the things we wanted. Won’t be back there
We were at the first sitting for New Years Eve . Our waiter basically told us what to eat and hustled us out as quickly as he could . The next seating was at 8.30 , we were out by 7.15. It was a pity to have our New Years Celebrations spoiled by an arrogant waiter.
Great New Year’s experience. Have been there several times and never disappointed.
English pea soup was thick and tasted like cement. The apple salad it was supposed to be served with was a joke - no more than a teaspoon. The portions served at this restaurant are too tiny to constituents a meal.
Awesome food, awesome service, awesome drinks. Best “old fashioned” I’ve ever had
The food was delicious! Everyone enjoyed their meal. As it wasn’t very busy, we were able to sit and catchup with friends who live outside of Houston.
Initially, we were seated at a table in a busy area near the kitchen door. Although she was reluctant to make a change at first, the greeter changed our table to a more desirable location where we were able to enjoy the delicious food and the football game (an unexpected bonus). Our server was excellent.
The hostess that sat us had a terrible attitude.
We have now dined at Emmaline several times and have always been pleased with our experience.
Menu was limited and wine was significantly marked up. Food was ok but doubtful that I’d go back
Service was not very efficient. Waiter forgot some of the drinks/dishes ordered. Silverware and napkins was late in arriving. All in all, not a good evening.
Every thing was very nice. Service was wonderful. Only complaint was the fries that came with the steak ($45) were limp, greasy and cold. I tried one and left the rest. A garlic mashed potato would have been far better with the steak. Or fries that were crispy and hot. The steak was good and the calamari was awesome. Chocolate tort was very good.
We went for Christmas Eve dinner. From the calamari to the scallops, all of our food came out luke warm. Last time we were there, we really enjoyed the food but were quite disappointed this time. Our waitress even forgot our order and had to come back to retake it.
Perfect for Christmas Eve with family
We enjoyed the Christmas Eve special menu. The Kansas City strip was amazing. I always enjoy dining here and Christmas Eve was no different. Great atmosphere and service.
Wonderful server, very good quality food and a really beautiful venue. Made our Christmas Eve celebration just perfect! I had the branzino, it was wonderful. I also recommend the mussels - best sauce ever!
The food quality was average and the service was average despite it being a slow Monday afternoon. The pictures of the restaurant looks incredible online but it definitely did not live up to its hype because of the quality of their food and service when I visited. I probably won’t recommend this place to my friends unless we plan on getting some light drinks on their rooftop patio.. That’s about as good as it gets!
I would recommend this restaurant to a friend on a heart beat. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, beautiful restaurant. Loved my Entrée, glad you had choices for a vegetarian.
Excellent place to celebrate girls' brunch for the season.
Emmaline’s never disappoints! It is one of my favorite restaurants and one of my “Go To’s”.
Pretty disappointed that we got seated 25 minutes after my reservation time and 40 minutes after I got there, but other than that everything was lovely, as always (and waiting at the bar isn't really bad at all). The food and the service are top notch, and I generally dig the menu, but it's really the ambiance that's the draw. That's the part my date liked best, I think. The waiter seemed a smidge over the top personality-wise, but his heart was in the right place and he basically did a good job. Took him a while to pick up my credit card though. I'm sure I'll be back and hope the seating works a little better once the holidays are done.
The food was excellent, and the staff was so accommodating. Loved everything!
All around lovely experience, great food and hospitality
Great experience, excellent service, wonderful food
Excellent experience, food and ambiance- will return often!
I was very disappointed in the wine selection. I was there a few weeks ago and there were several wines priced at a moderate level (~$50) range). now, they are very few! And, only one Malbec (priced at $135!) I expect to drink a decent wine with a nice meal, but don't expect to have to pay over $100/bottle. Also, I noticed your wine cellar is practically empty. What's going on?
This place was amazing!!!! The food was absolutely perfect, service was excellent, atmosphere was awesome. Definitely going back!
Lovely setting. The food was good but the lamb chops were over-salted. We were there at an off hour and the food service was slow. Overall it was nice but not exceptional
I thought the restaurant was cute. The hostess was very dismissive. I made reservations and arrived early. The other 2 in my party arrived at 1:06 and the other at 1:12. The hostess didn't tell me that everyone needed to be there before being seated; I just assumed since she directed me to the bar. When my final guest appeared, I went to let her know we were all there and she rudely dismissed me to the bar to wait. He attitude was noted. Thankfully our waiter made up for her rudeness.
