5 Star restaurant with 5 star staff. While the meal was very much worth the cost and time the staff were just as good.

My wife ordered the fried chicken which foated over the plate it was so lightly fried and I had the best cobb salad I've ever had with smoked bacon that was memorable. Raymond, our server was friendly and accommodating. Comfortable uncluttered place. Cannot wait to return.

We had a fabulous dinner. Incredible staff from the waiter to the bus boy. They had perfect timing with the food and offered great suggestions. The drum dish was so delish! Make a reservation!

I am not normally one for "tourist" place. But I have to say that this Emril's restaurant took me by surprise. The staff was fun,knowledgable and very attentive. The food was very good. There were pork chops served, Dory a fish I never had and delicious halibut. The 4 of us were well taken care of and I would go... More

We had an absolutely wonderful experience at NOLA. The quality of the food was off the charts. Portions were just right...We all tried something different and not one of was disappointed with our choices. Dessert was unbelievable. Service was outstanding...we had at least 3 people very attentive to us.... Would definitely recommend to anyone who is visiting New Orleans.

I dined solo during restaurant week. I had Baby Arugula Salad Local Goat Cheese, Cantaloupe, Spicy Pineapple Vinaigrette (delicious!) and “Shrimp & Grits” - Sautéed Gulf Shrimp • Sesame Broccoli, Green Onion Grits • Pickled Carrots Toasted Cashews • Hoisin Butter Sauce (fantastic interpretation of a southern standard). I cant say enough about the service at this place. I had... More

What can I say about this restaurant. My wife and I went there for our anniversary dinner. I can't say enough. Food was excellent, service was even better than the food. The people (there were at least 3 of them) that looked after us were perfect. The right balance of relaxed so we could enjoy our meal but the level... More

Stopped in for a quick lunch. The staff was very attentive and wonderful even though it was 10 minutes tip the close of lunch. They just kept letting people in! The food was amazing. Would order the Bloody Mary JUST to eat the spicy green beans!!

I think because it is a Food Network star's restaurant that one expects transcendence on a plate. That's a tall order that for me, didn't happen. Still, I don't have one bad thing to say about my meal -- it was exceptional. Where this restaurant excelled was the perfect, but not overwhelming service. I mean, they walked me to the... More
