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 read mixed reviews about Emeril's Orlando so I was a bit skeptical. Plus I had my own built in concerns about celebrity chef restaurants (sorry Emeril!), but I was quickly proven incorrect. Wow! This was an exquisite meal from beginning to end. While this restaurant is right in the middle of Universal's City Walk, it does not suffer from... More

This was my first experience at an Emeril's restaurant and I am not sure I will try another. My daughter has celiacs and we explained to the waiter that she was gluten free. Her appetizer came with soy sauce (not mentioned in the description of item)--so she could not eat that. Then it was a bread frenzy! The bread was... More

The first time I came here I was a little disappointed. It seems that my expectations were so inflated that I expected absolute perfection. Well unless you are dining at Le Bernardin you simply cannot expect that. This place has great service, great food, a great vibe, and great cocktails. What else is there? Price is relative to where you... More

We arrived at Universal on a Sunday evening and after checking in we dashed over to Emeril's for dinner. We arrived around 7 pm and were seated right away. That's the only good thing I have to report about this place. After waiting about 10 minutes, someone finally came over to take our drink order. At this point we still... More

After my review posted on TripAdvisor, I was contacted by the Orlando Emeril's management. They apologized for the experience I reported and asked if there was anything they could do to entice me to return. I do not live in the area, and have no plans to return for more than a year, so I did not reply to them.... More

After a long day at Universal, seeing Emeril's sign on the city walk was a most welcome site. Luckily was not too busy and got seated right away. Our only experience with Emeril's eateries has been in Vegas and never a disappointment, this happily was yet another great experience, very attentive service. I could live on the breads that were...

This is a nice upscale restaurant. It's located on the City Walk section. The food was awesome and the sangrias were good.

We had never eaten at an Emeril's and would certainly go back. We arrived hot and exhausted with no reservation.They took us immediately and had great selections. The food was delicious. Our only complaint was along wait between our appetizer and dinner with staff constantly asking if they could get us anything but not bringing food. Finally the headwaiter apologized... More

Everything was great in this restaurant, the Gorgonzola crusted filet mignon was the best in my opinion but the vegeterian pasta was so good, my daughter kept stealing bites from her aunt. Totally recommend this place. Go there with an empty stomach. :)
