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.

We visited here after a private party forced the management of tchoup chop nearby to cancel our reservation. We never planned on coming here but glad we did! The staff were courteous and very informative. They gave us a table upstairs in a small room that was intimate, perfect for couples and conversation and had an amazing view out towards... More

Celebrating our anniversary dinner at the Emeril's in Orlando was everything we expected and more. Our three waiters all made mention of our special event. They made sure every aspect of our dinner was perfect from drinks to the complimentary dessert. The suggestions they made for our accompanying wine added to our meal choices which were extraordinary. Emeril's is a... More

I have been to his restaurants all over the US and the food and service are always consistently on the top end. I was at a business dinner with 6 others and everyone in the part enjoyed their meal. It is a bit on the loud side so business discussions can be a bit of a challenge, but to be... More

As you can see this was the highlight of our Emeril Orlando happy hour. Overall the service was splendid and our party of 8 enjoyed the happy hour small plates. The only downside would be is you must sit at the bar for the happy hour prices and seating is limited - we took up 7 seats for 8 people.... More

My two grade-school aged kids and I ate lunch here on our last day in Orlando before flying home. I wanted to end our long weekend vacation on a high note and our lunch was great! The service was friendly and efficient and not at all stuffy. We started with chips and guacamole for an appetizer. We enjoyed it, but... More

Emeril's at Universal is a true oasis of high quality food and drink in the Universal CityWalk set in a great location within the complex. The seafood and steak offerings are given equal attention and of course many of Emeril's cajun and creole influences come through in the Orlando menu. The staff is well trained and highly efficient working in... More

My wife and I had dinner at Emeril's on Friday night before Russell Peters at Hard Rock Live. We were very pleased. Every thing was pretty much perfect. The salmon I had was as good as I have ever eaten. It was flavorful and cooked perfectly. It is a little expensive there, but not obscenely so.

I went when it first opened and it was one of the best meals of my life. In subsequent visits over the years it went downhill so I skipped a few years. The last two times, over two years, the last being 12/30/2014 it was as good as it ever was. The wait staff have a great sense of humor... More
