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.

Great steaks, bad fish.

Went to Emeril's at Universal City Walk. I had one of the best rib-eye steaks with a chimichuri sauce that I have ever had. My husband, however, ordered the Swordfish and it came out raw in the center. After sending it back and a long enough wait for me to eat half of my steak, it came back raw... read more

Nice supper and experience at Emeril's on a Friday night...2/27. Had reservations for 6:30 and were promptly seated out on the terrace (I'd call it). Very nice and romantic...we even had a decent view of the 7:00 fireworks at universal. Great service and presentation. We started with the calamari, which was laced with slices of olives....unusual, but...tasty combo my husband... More

We held a group business dinner for 40 at this restaurant., They were very organised and catered to all of our requirements. Service was a little slow for the group and we were 35-40 minutes later finshing our meal than we have anticipated but all round good dinner enjoyed by many of the group.

Brought a VIP here for a unique and top notch dining experience and it was disappointing from all aspects, including atmosphere, food and service. Very disappointing and definitely won't be back.

I have had great meals, I have had poor meals. But I never had a meal in which I told the manager I had a problem and he failed to fix it. Ten minutes into the meal I spoke with Jonathan, the manager, about an issue that occurred. He stated he would fix it but the service became worse. We... More

I hate giving poor reviews, and think that there are, genuine, cultural differences in the expectations of people from different parts of the world, especially when it comes to restaurants. That said, and coming from London, this was a big disappointment, because although the food was ok, the meal, as a whole was spoilt by faux sycophantic, borderline indifferent /... More

We were at Emerils on 2/27/15 a Friday with an 845 PM reservation. We were led upstairs and into a small (3 tables for 2) room with great view of the lagoon and Hard Rock. We were initially very happy with the table and the view but it came at a price when it came to the service. We ordered... More

We were at Universal for the day and decided to eat at Emeril's. We didn't have a reservation but were seated immediately. Staff was very attentive and friendly. We don't drink but our water was refilled constantly. I had the beef short ribs and they were excellent. Seasoned perfectly and the flavor was amazing. My husband had the chicken which... More

Service and setting were great. Steaks were awesome but pricey... $40-45 per entree. Casual dress is fine.

While spending a Saturday evening checking out CityWalk, we stopped in for a couple of drinks and something to eat. We sat at the bar, and were quickly greeted. As luck would have it, it was still happy hour. We ordered a couple of drinks and made the wise decision to order the Tasso and Wild Mushroom Pasta appetizer. I... More
