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 would like to say that the food was excellent and fast and hot. I just love Emerils cooking and this restaurant. The place is in the CityWalk of Orlando park. The staff was fast and very helpful on the menu. One staff member said that some time Emeril just walks in. He was not there I will come back... More

Ate here for our second time, this time with our four children. Child menu selections were very good - hard to believe a child's cheese pizza could be that good. Main courses and desserts were excellent as was the service. However, this time it was quite loud, with some obnoxious diners nearby. Would try it again, however.

I've been to this location many times for business and on a recent vacation I took my family there for Dinner. What I remembered in the past as an amazing experience has certainly changed. It feels like they are letting it slip a bit. Food was ok. Not the "Bam" of years ago. Service was fine but staff needs a... More

This was not first trip to Emeril's and I've never been disappointed. The steaks are delicious, the wine was paired perfectly and the service was excellent!!

We chose to eat here while visiting with my son and his wife. My wife had made reservations a week in advance. The resturant itself is located in Universal's Entertainment Park. Aside from the parking fee, there are no park entrance charges. The service was top notch and the menu was very extensive and moderately priced. The wine menu ranged... More

Since I've been in Orlando I was wandering about Emerils. We have booked our reservation online which was pretty fast. As soon as we get there the hostess was amazing and cordial. The servers are exceptional and some speaks a lot of languages. Had a duck taco as entree, a pork as main course which was one of the bests... More

We loved our experience at this restaurant. The food was great, they sat us with a beautiful view of City Walk. We thought they were quite reasonably priced based on the name and location. What we did not like: 1) There are a lot of tables strangely situated by the doors. Be sure when you make reservations or are seated... More

We ordered chataneuf du pape. E. Guigal. 2007 My husband and I both tasted the wine! It did not taste right to me so I looked at the cork and it was stamped E. Guigal 2013! The sommelier tried to tell us it was a better bottle than what we ordered. We paid for the wine. Beware!

While we had a nice meal here, I felt it was a bit of a strange place. Except for a picture on the wall I had no sense of being in a celebrity chef's restaurant. The setting itself didn't seem to work with much empty space. With a team of three serving us, it was hard to tell who to... More
