Now this place understands experience. It really sets the tone when the waiter immediately brings you a black napkin when you are wearing black dress pants. It's been a while since we have had professional service like this in a restaurant, especially at that price point. ($34-$50) for a complete entrée. The food was awesome. Honourable mention for the fried... More

After not getting a table during our last visit to Orlando, we planned in advance and made reservations this time and was pleased with our experience. The food was delicious and the service was exceptional. The portion size was also very generous and we left very satisfied. Being New Orleans food, we expected some heat and there was some, but...

First time here and glad we went. The skillet cornbread appetizer is killer and I had the shrimp and grits which was a wonderful New Orleans take on the dish. Great beer and wine menu, plenty for the kids in a relaxing and enjoyable atmosphere. Great service, worth the visit.

I had a party of six there for dinner a year ago. It was awesome but I defer to more recent dinner patrons as to reviews. The reason I mention the prior visit was my group this year was looking for a "great dessert" after 9pm and prior to leaving the park. The crew immediately identified Emeril's as the top... More

We love creole/cajun cooking and decided Emerils would be a "splurge" restaurant in city walk. We started with the BBQ shrimp (My fav are from Mr. B's in NOLA) quite tasty here with extra bread to sop up the sauce. WE ordered wine by the bottle (OK - 2x retail markup) and drinks - the Navy Punch is well crafted... More

We have eaten dinner or lunch here several times and are NEVER disappointed. This time also did not disappoint. The Servers are quick, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. The food is absolutely second to none. Can't wait to go again.

Very pleased with everything we ordered. Duck wings were a hit. The bartender was fantastic (wish we remembered his name)

Back home, this is the type of restaurant I would go to alone with my husband for a date night. Date nights don't happen when we're vacationing in Orlando. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal, and my kids enjoyed theirs, too. Good thing because Kids' meals are $18 and up! (they include dessert, but just make sure you're aware of that... More

I really wanted this to be an amazing culinary experience but in all honesty it was "just okay," especially when you take into account that you should expect to pay from $100-$150 for two people with appetizer, entrees and drinks. For that amount I do expect to be "wowed" and walk away feeling I got my money's worth. Unfortunately just... More

Came here during a conference at the Portofino Resort with a business colleague. We had Moscow Mules (with Titos...be sure to ask)--these were great, and only $14. I had the salmon and salad and it was extremely well done. My dining partner had the shrimp, with a side of rice grits. Honestly, those rice grits were the best thing I... More

Description
Located at the epicenter of Universal's CityWalk®, Emeril's bustling eatery overlooks the park's lagoon and all of the action of this thriving Orlando hot spot. The free standing two-story building is a high-energy, creative environment for fine food and wine, with soaring thirty-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, stone walls, and iron staircase that lend the feel of an industrial warehouse loft. At the center of this modern food studio is an open kitchen and chef's food bar, where lucky guests can watch up close, the chefs at work. The restaurant's second floor offers two private party rooms that feature oak barrel slat ceilings, a 10,000 bottle wine gallery, and an intimate chef's tasting room that seats 8.
