Desserts Extraordinaire

A friend and I shared a couple of entrees at NOLA, but the desserts were "over-the-top"! We enjoyed a fabulous bread pudding, a layered chocolate sweet thing, and they served up a coffee with pumpkin and latte froth that were all exceptional.

We went to NOLA Restaurant after we failed to get a reservation at Emril's other restaurant in New Orleans. It was a nice ending. The food was good - different and the portions were huge! I think there are a lot of traditional dishes with a NOLA and/or Emril twist - which made it a nice experience. I had the... More

We anticipated a more flavorful menu considering the menu creator is Chef Emeril Lagasse. However, the food was rather bland or average. In all honesty, I've had more enjoyable Shrimp 'n Grits at Lucille's BBQ Smokehouse. The saving grace is the service...what they don't provide in taste they make up for in service. It is 5-Star and the staff does... More

Got to visit this place on the wednesday before Mardi Gras. Had no problems getting a reservation for two at 6:45. Kind of surprised me for one of Emeril's chow dispensaries. Barbecue Shrimp appetizer was done correctly, without a trace of grease. Salads were great, cold and crisp. The garlic encrusted red drum, was the deal sealer. That covers the... More

On February 7, 2015, we visited this trendy restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. We called weeks in advance to make reservations, however, all they had left was 8:45 pm because they were so booked. We took it, but after arriving at the restaurant there appeared to be several open tables. My husband and I both ordered the fried chicken dinner.... More

My niece and I went a little earlier than our reservation but they said they could seat us at the chef's table. We sat in front of the pizza oven and while at times it got a little hot we watched them cook the drum and Potatoes for each order ad we could watch the rest of the kitchen. I... More

A trip to New Orleans is not complete without experiencing the culinary excellence that makes itself at home in this, one of the United States' most unique cities. NOLA fits the bill! My buddy and I shared the appetizer BBQ shrimp which were excellent. With the help of our knowledgeable and very entertaining waiter I selected an Oregon Pinot Noir... More

Went for lunch here last week and was very impressed with the ambience and service. Exactly what I'd expect at an Emeril restaurant. If you like seafood you HAVE TO HAVE the Emeril BBQ shrimp appetizer! I could have had 3 plates they were so good! My husband loved the gumbo and the buttermilk chicken was also very good. Best...

the best meal of a 3 day trip. every dish was perfectly seasoned and beautifully presented. We had to move our reservation later because of a flight change, but we stopped in early and they graciously seated us. Don't miss the Bloody Mary--I will search around for that recipe. Didn't expect to be so impressed, thought of Emeril as a... More
