Visited this restaurant a number of times and always enjoyed a very good and warm welcome. Unfortunately I cannot comment on the rest of the menu as try as I might to try something different I always end up ordering a steak. Staff are always very friendly and attentive. It is not at all pretentious, it is a small independently... More

We went to a children's party here and the parents were treated to lunch. Whilst the children were being entertained in the larger dining room the parents were being spoilt in the front dining room. We had steak sandwiches served on ciabatta with onions and mushrooms, the steak was divine and so tender. To accompany the sandwiches we had chips,... More

Emily's is a firm family favourite. It's an unpretentious, charming and cosy family-run restaurant where we and friends have always felt welcome. I always have the fillet steak, which is one of the best I've ever had and it's always perfect. I've read a couple of the negative reviews on here and can't really understand them as their experiences are... More

Strange and disjointed. The name suggests an American theme the owners and staff are East Asian and the food is just confused. Camembert and samosas on the same menu was never going to work. The food and drinks are overpriced and they need to get air con to prevent their customers melting. Disappointing to say the least. We've been once... More

I went to Emily's again having been there on 2 occasions a year ago. I convinced my friends It was good so set the arrangements and travelled for a good gents night out with some big steaks. For starters we order the mushrooms topped with blue cheese, ribs and chicken wings. All 3 can out over cooked with the rib... More

I would recommend this steakhouse. Ordered rib eye. It was fantastic. It was the best steak I've ever tasted. Service was fantastic. After booking a table at friars bar. To be told they don't have any rub eye or rump. We came here and ordered exactly what we wanted. I believe in fate. And this place is definitely worth trying.

We ventured out again in Derby last night, even though we had bought two fabulous fillet steaks from Mr Barry Fitch. Jonti didn't want to cook and wash up so he called Emilys and lucky us they had a table…..fillets in the freezer. Starters: Crab pot and toast for Jenni the taste sensation that Jenni has been searching for for... More

Just live close to here. First visit was back in the day when they had taken their parents fish & chip shop and turned it into something they loved. The steak was salty and kriprsy, the service was pure class, it all had that personal touch. Roll on to 3 years later, my parents were in Derby. What restaurant will... More

It is with sadness that you have not had a good experience on Saturday 2nd August. However, it is even more sad that you have written such a poor review despite myself spending time with you discussing areas you have not mentioned above. Some areas wholly inaccurate. We have been trading for over 7 years now. You have frequented us... More
