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.

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

We dined here while staying at Royal Pacific for our 10-year anniversary. We enjoyed a happy hour cocktail at the bar from a very nice tender before being promptly seated for our reservation. The calamari was the best I've ever had and the complimentary shrimp chips were unusual but tasty. My specialty alcoholic beverage was way too sweet, but I... More

Had a very nice meal on a Friday evening. We did not have reservations and the restaurant was busy. The staff was extremely accommodating. We sat at a small table for two in the bar area. Our server promptly offered us drinks and our order as taken in a reasonable length of time considering we just dropped in. The salmon... More

We were seated promptly by a friendly hostess. Our servers were attentive. As we ordered from the Magical Dining menu, I noticed a familiar face in the kitchen. Sure enough, it was Emeril. I have dined here only 2 times and Emeril was there on both occasions. He created an excitement that carried throughout dinner, especially when he came into... More

We stayed at Cabana Bay Beach Resort, but wanted to go to Emeril's Tchoup Chop just for desserts, as I had excellent memories from a few years ago. We were not disappointed. The staff was great, ou request for a table just for dessert was granted without a problem, and the service was elegant and gracious. The restaurant is beautiful,... More
