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.

Pricey and just a little bit better than islands! Not a lot of creativity. Average service, noisy. Very disappointing.

We have been to several Emerils and this is one of the top two. The food is so different but so delicious! We went on New Years Eve and service and ambiance was up for the special occasion. We had two servers checking on us, making suggestions and answering questions. It was very personal service.

We recently stayed at the Lowes Royal Pacific where Tchoup Chop is located. We were there for a Universal Studios vacation. We stayed for 4 nights and ended up eating at Emeril's for 3 of those nights. The other restaurants surrounding Universal are terrible! Tchoup Chop was outstanding each night! From the complimentary shrimp chips to the banana cream pie,... More

We arrived and were seated in a booth right next to the infinity pond water feature.Out of the three “fancy” restaurants that we ate at during the week of our vacation, Tchoup Chop wins the prize for best atmosphere. From the open kitchen, to the lighting fixtures, to the interesting booths, it all came together to shout, you are somewhere... More

After 1 hr 45 minutes the food was not ready. Apps took 35 mins. My calamari was both soggy and tough. The pork dumplings were over steamed. Two of... More

This place is a must, especially if your on a getaway with your loved one. My wife and I ate here and we were not disappointed! The food is top notch, and the drinks are just as good. The atmosphere is amazing, with the wait staff being high class through and through. We will definitely be back!

I had seen good reviews and was looking forward to our reservation. Service started out attentively, but once the tables started to fill up and we ordered our entrees we were forgotten. Our water wasnot refilled until halfway through dinner, when I asked for more water. Most establishments refill water as soon as you take a sip. We were not... More
