An Excellent Dinner

This flagship of "Emeril, Inc" far surpasses its branches in every way. The service was exceptionally friendly, although like all of New Orleans, at a relaxed pace. All the staff were genuine in their friendliness and concern for the diner. No plastic smiles. Yes, it can be a bit noisy, so ask... read more

Loud. Food mediocre. Service inferior. Just because everyone talks about this and because the chef shows up from time to time and is known from TV does not make this place a good dinner destination. Lots of food on your plate but of not very good quality. In short: avoid it.

After spending along weekend in NOLA, we failed to make reservations on our last day, Sunday, for brunch. It was Mothers Day and most of the well known places were booked tight. We took a stroll that morning with Starbucks in hand and walked along the water and into the warehouse/convention area. We stumbled across Emeril's flagship restaurant and took... More

We had been checking out the nearby Art galleries and Contempary Art's Center and came upon Emeril's just in time to grab a bite at the bar for lunch, the place inside I would describe as contempary, fresh and elegant. The bar tender was very friendly and we ordered the "Emeril's" salad and a shared a Cheese board .It was... More

Celebrity chef restaurants can be a real gamble. But Emeril does not disappoint! The food was great, and highly rrcommended. The big surprise, though, was the combination of showmanship and professionalism. Our waiter greeted me by name, and with a handshake, a really nice touch I had never seen before. Meal service to everyone at the table was synchronized and... More

This was our first visit to Emeril's and the food and service exceeded our expectations by 200%. We had the Barbequed Salmon & the Pork Chop and both were perfectly cooked. The service was excellent and the only complaint would be about the noise level. They need to install some sound absorbing material. The atmosphere and décor were beautiful and... More

I had the opportunity to eat here in March, and wow the food was amazing! I had the bone in pork chop and it was the best I've ever had. The waiter was very responsive, and it was almost like he could read our minds. His recommendations for entrees, appetizers, and deserts were spot on! If your looking for a... More

It's not often that I'm able to dine at an establishment such as Emeril's so I really appreciate the service and fine food dished up here at the original New Orleans location. My favorite is their steaks but I honestly don't believe you can go wrong with anything on the menu or the daily specials. If you are visiting New... More

While on a recent family trip to NOLA we ate at many restaurants. This restaurant was average at best. It's very nice inside but I felt like it was more show than substance. Our waiter was not good. He couldn't remember the specials of the day and he was constantly running around from station to station. He offered our table... More
