Description: Emeril's Tchoup Chop (pronounced chop-chop) is the hottest table in Orlando, and Lagasse's second location at Universal Studios. The name offers a hint of New Orleans' famous Tchoupitoulas Street, home to Emeril's flagship restaurant, and the bold culinary term "chop". Located at Loews Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando, Emeril's Tchoup Chop offers a dining experience unlike any other created by the famous master chef. In both atmosphere and menu, Emeril's Tchoup Chop offers diners a unique and exotic journey through the Pacific Seas with a delicious experience of Asian and Polynesian influences complemented by his signature bold flavors - a perfect complement for the Royal Pacific Resort. Although walk-ins can be accommodated, reservations are highly recommended. Our dress policy is casual with no tank tops for men. Bernard Carmouche, Culinary Director, and Lee Kaleel, General Manager, are dedicated to providing you with that memorable dining experience.

went here for magical dining and to celebrate my birthday with my friends. Grilled cheese green tomato was amazing, had the veal for the main course but it was very bland, didn't seem like it was prepped correctly. The waiter gladly exchanged it for the steak and the manager as well as the chef came out to apologize. They also... More

Service was not great. We went for lunch and while my son said his fish was good my sandwich was awful. The only reason I gave it 2 stars wasa the mixed shoestring fries were good.

After a long day at the park, we were looking forward to having some delicious food. Unfortunately the service was slow, the menu was unappealing, and the food was lackluster at Emeril's Tchoup Chop. There was not any problem with any particular dish, so I do not want to comment on exactly what we had. However, everything we had, from... More

This is one of the most beautiful restaurants I've ever seen. My granddaughter loved the lily pad in the center of the room. The waiters were great-helped us with recommendations, came by often enough...but not too often. The specialty drinks are delicious as well. I think this is more a restaurant for a date or ocassion, but we enjoyed our... More

My second visit and the food and room still stuns. Not purely traditional Asian cuisine, but more modern. Reservations are easy to obtain and the complimentary valet parking is a nice touch. Will visit again without fail

After a day at the parks, took a break at Emerils. Decor was amazing; felt underdressed in cutoffs and T-shirt, but the staff was great about it. Malachi and Leroy took attentive but not oppressive care of us; wine, salads, asparagus, salmon were outstanding; chocolate dessert was good. Thanks, guys!

We visited Tchoup Chop twice during our trip to Orlando while staying onsite at the Royal Pacific Resort, once for lunch and once for dinner. Lunch was creative and tasty and we had tremendous service. In all fairness, we were one of only two tables in the restaurant; however, the waiter still went completely out of his way for us... More

Orderd miso soup for $8 and it came out cold. My friend couldn't even eat a piece of her $18 roll that was filled with krab not crab. The people watching is great but extremely dissatisfied. The American bar next door (Jake's) had a better salad.

This place is fairly awful. The only reason I gave it two stars instead of one is because we sat at the bar and the bartenders were quite wonderful and did mix some good drinks - the only saving grace. Other than that, it was pretty bad, even accounting for it being a tourist trap. First of all, this place... More

Me and my girlfriend decided to try out the restaurant because they happened to be participating in the magical dining month for Orlando. $33 gets you an appetizer, an entree, and of course a dessert. Emerils, like many other hot spots, also throws in a coupe of tasters before the meal even begins. We were greeted at the table by... More
