Description: 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.

I expected more...the food was very ordinary. My husband's salad was too spicy. The guacamole was not good. It was really a disapontment because I was there some years ago and I enjoyed the food. I don't intend to go back.

The service was so bad it ruined my visit there and I refuse to return - EVER. They treated me badly because I was ALONE. There were 14 servers for less than 8 tables at lunch time. I waited to be seated, I waited for water and soda, I waited for a menu, I waited for the fresh bread that... More

My picky 9yr old had & I quote "The best chicken fingers EVER!" THEN the dessert! I had Emeril's banana cream pie w/a graham... More

4th time my wife and I have eaten here. We order the chiefs menu with wine pairing - at the end of the meal my wife and i agreed the food and service has gone down hill - the food more than the service. As part of the chiefs menu we were served scallops with risotto - the scallops were... More

We were very disappointed in our experience. I ordered the vegetarian pasta, and requested it without mushrooms. It was described as having "toasted garlic infused olive oil." I could taste no garlic, and we waited for an hour for our entrees to be served, as they had added mushrooms to my pasta not once, but twice. The second time I... More

Went with a friend while I was visiting Orlando. I always wanted to eat at Emeril's. The staff was excellent. If something was wrong, it was corrected. And things were wrong. My Manhattan was not made right. (Too bitter) Corrected by bar. Friend's coffee was barely warm. Hot coffee returned to us. The food was excellent, but extremely small portion.... More

Had the pleasure of a meal here with kids and cousins while visiting Universal Studios. Service was outstanding from start to finish. Food was great. Creole Marinated Fried Calamari was delicious, My son thought the Angus burger was the best he ever tasted, my cousin said the duck taco was an explosion of flavor in her mouth. The corn muffins...

Food was good but I think it's the name that get you. With a name like Emeril's you would expect more from the food but it was just average and over price. It's convenient if you're on City Walk and it's something you can cross off your bucket list but it's not enough to make you come back again. Service... More

My husband and I decided to visit City Walk after not having been there for many months. We were delighted to find how great the place looks after all the construction and changes and new additions. Emeril's has been at City Walk for a long time but we had never tried it so we figured it was time, and now... More
