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.

The last time that my wife and I dined at Emeril's Orlando was in 2000. The food is now as excellent as it was way back when; however, communications are still somewhat lacking. I ordered a particular appetizer that had my mouth watering, but to my surprise I was presented with a much different opener. Our server told me that... More

The fish dishes were seasoned and prepared with attention to detail. Great service and wine list. Everyone had a great time and enjoyed both fish and beef dishes. Service was perfect.

Enjoyed a dinner here after visiting Universal Studios for the day. Coming in second to Disney's Victoria & Albert's is something I consider high praise - especially considering Emeril's was MUCH less expensive! My wife and I had the Chef's Tasting Menu (with wine parings) and I highly recommend you do the same. The food and wine selections were exceptional!... More

My wife and I were really impressed with this place. My expectations were not high since this is on city walk at universal. Prices were very reasonable (especially compared to high end restaurants at Disney). The decor is nice. The service was prompt and friendly. Most importantly, the food was fantastic. We went for lunch and didn't eat all that... More

I recently had dinner at Emeril's at Universal on the last day of a business trip. I was saving a visit to this restaurant to the last day and I wish I hadn't wasted the time or money going here. The service was adequate, they were professional, but you could sense the artificial hospitality and the quickness of the delivery... More

Restaurant is in Universal's City Walk and because of this they must not depend on repeat business to keep the doors open. Food was average at best or maybe they forgot the "BAM", the only "BAM" we got was the bill, way overpriced. Fortunately they forgot two of our appetizers. We had eaten the previous night at the Hard Rock,... More

Had lunch today at Emeril's at City Walk. This was my first time at the establishment. My experience was average at best. The staff was professional but not friendly. The food was also average. I have had better at some of the casual chain restaurants. I probably would think twice about visiting this establishment again.

Great service at this restaurant! Very impressed! But was expecting more creative and innovative food options. Waiter recommended the chicken dish and it tasted great but was only BBQ with potatoes. Was expecting alittle more creativity with the flavors. But overall had a good experience.

We participated in a limited menu offering that was an Orlando wide promotion for September which must be a slow month. The food was OK, and probably would have been better had I selected my entre from the regular menu. The distractions by the staff were more than a little annoying. I don't know how many times a waiter, waiter's... More
