Located at the epicenter of Universal's CityWalk®, Emeril's bustling eatery overlooks the park's lagoon and all of the action of this thriving Orlando hot spot. The free standing two-story building is a high-energy, creative environment for fine food and wine, with soaring thirty-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, stone walls, and iron staircase that lend the feel of an industrial warehouse loft. At the center of this modern food studio is an open kitchen and chef's food bar, where lucky guests can watch up close, the chefs at work. The restaurant's second floor offers two private party rooms that feature oak barrel slat ceilings, a 10,000 bottle wine gallery, and an intimate chef's tasting room that seats 8.

After a long day in the parks, we really wanted a nice sit-down dinner w/real food, cooked well. Emeril's fit the bill. My whole family have been fans of his for year's so it was a great choice. They sat us right away and we all found things we liked on the menu. The funny thing is, now I can't... More

all in all, the food is always very good at Emeril's, been there several times... but unfortunately the overall experience this visit wasn't great. After the debauchery of a parking situation, valet was closed only for "executives" but didn't communicate that till we were already stuck in the traffic jam at the entrance, we made it to the restaurant 15...

We have been to this restaurant several times throughout the years and unfortunately, it has recently lost the magic it once had. First and foremost, we came in for the tasting menu, which we have had before. There were many lovely items listed on the tasting menu that interested us, including a duck dish. When we went to order it,... More

My son likes to cook, so this was his pick for the day, as he enjoys watching Emeril on TV. We sat at the bar for appetizers & drinks and the staff treated us like we were there for a four course meal...so polite & professional! Both food & beverage were fantastic!

We are so glad that we chose this restaurant out of so many places on City Walk. The decor is modern and inviting. The wait staff was very professional and friendly, on point. The food was a highlight. I got the Tuna appetizer, loved it and my husband went crazy for Duck tacos. The Banana cream pie dessert was to... More

My only previous visit to Emeril's was well over 10 years ago. At that time, coats and ties were required. Shorts certainly had no place in the restaurant. Much to my surprise that has changed. The first floor had a wide variety of diners in a wide variety of dress. The atmosphere was more party than elegant. However, my party... More

Almost every time I visit Orlando I visit here. The quality of food is very high and so is the service. The deserts are to die for. Huge wine list. Don't be fooled by the expensive ones. We had a very good cote de rhone and it was one of the least expensive ones on the menu.

I took my wife here for lunch; she's always wanted to come here. From the time we came in until we left; the staff there was very friendly & courteous.

While staying at Universal Theme park on my birthday we decided to try Emeril's Orlando restaurant at the advice of friends who had gone there. Never thought a restaurant in a theme park would be this good! It certainly lived up to Emeril's standards. All three of us had FANTASTIC dinners (blackened swordfish, salmon and braised ribs). Took our waiters... More
