While visiting Universal City walk we took a chance on getting seated without a reservation and were seated immediately. The staff was attentive and the atmosphere was beautiful. The menu was not as extensive as the New Orleans locations, but the food was equally exquisite.

Emeril's Orlando is for tourists that want to try a pricey restaurant of a famous chef. The menu is limited and include a small number of New Orleans favorites. The service is rushed to get you in and out as quickly as possible. Entree's are delivered at the same time which is nice, anything else is dropped off as fast... More

If you want a fantastic dining experience without breaking the bank, this is the place. Emeril's is fine dining with linens, great wait staff and exceptional food. The prix fixe menu offers great options that are delicious, filling and reasonable. We had an outstanding lobster bisque, skirt steak and scallop entree and a scrumptious chocolate mousse desert for $33 and... More

Had the $52 ribeye steak. Was very disappointed considering I had it at Emeril's. Ribeye was not tender, on the thinner side, lot's of unenjoyable chewing. On the plus side, it had a delicious topping with blue cheese. Wife also had a steak dish with the meat on the tougher side.

We made a reservation for magical dining month and we were seated immediately. The staff was really friendly and accommodating and it felt like we were dining alone upstairs in the wine cellar. Our waiter thoroughly explained the menu and answered all of our questions. I ordered the lobster bisque as an appetizer and honestly it was disgusting. I absolutely... More

I had the skirt steak and scallop. The steak was extremely tough. The scallop was cooked to perfection. My appetizer cauliflower with a roasted tomato reduction was raw. I had to saw through the cauliflower with a steak knife. I don't like over cooked veggies but this was raw. My husband had the seafood Mac and cheese. The sauce had... More

My husband and I certainly had a lovely meal. We were accommodated over an hour before our reservation, which was very nice, the drinks were good (though they could be stronger), and the food was very good as well. Nothing stood out other than the fact that I felt the menu and the choices were indeed better than Emeril's New... More

We visited Florida as a family of 17 in August 2016, obviously with that number of people it was extremely difficult to find somewhere that could cater for us all and still have good food and the right order. Only 12 of us visited this restaurant. Im not going to lie it is expensive but it is (or was for... More

It's the best sampling menu in Florida. The food is creative and original while the dining atmosphere is completely formal and modern. Very friendly, very expensive and very worth it. I've been here several times and I am always amazed on how wonderful the food tastes. Do it, but don't order off the standard menu. Sampling menu is the best!

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.
