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.

Much Better Than Expected

I'm familiar with Emeril's cooking from his cookbooks, and wasn't sure what to expect. The decor and ambiance was fresh and airy. There are crisp white table linens and a minimalist decor. We started with cocktails, and had the New G & T and the Monks Revolt. Both were fabulous. The Monks Revolt... read more

We sat at the chef's food bar which overlooks the kitchen. The food was really good of course. I had the pan-seared scallops and banana cream pie for dessert. My bf had the filet mignon and creme brulee for dessert. My dessert was amazing. I mean everything was really good but that banana cream pie was so so so good.... More

This is our 5th Emeril's in the U.S. A typically outstanding restaurant. Superb service and food off the charts. Shrimp dish was divine. Go for it, you won't be disappointed.

We wanted a good restaurant to finish off our visit to Universal Orlando, we made the reservation using the OpenTable app. We were not disappointed. The location is excellent, a stand alone restaurant at the end of Universal City Walk just before you enter Islands of Adventure. We didn't really know much about the restaurant before we booked it, we... More

It was my first time dining at Emeri's Orlando, Universal CityWalk, and I must say my expectations were exceeded x 100. The manager, Edwin was so welcoming, and our servers Jessica, James and Mike were outstanding. The plates we ordered were described perfectly and you can tell the servers know what they're talking about before they start to serve you.... More

Managed to get a table without a reservation. Food was good and better than the normal theme park sections. A bit overpriced for what we got but consistent with the other choices in city walk ie all overpriced! The service was good but we seemed to have two servers. Every time our primary server asked if our food was ok,... More

First the food was delicious. We ( two adults and two teenage children) walked out happy with how it tasted but were incredibly disaapointed with the TERRIBLE service. After placing our order and waiting for about 40 minutes I asked our waiter about our four meals. He stated that he would ask the manager to check. The waiter came back... More

Clean, romantic, modern, and classy. I have been to all 3 of Emeril's restaurants in New Orleans, and this is just as lovely. I have only been here once, but I will be back. The Drum fish was to die for, get that and you'll be happy!
