We recently had lunch here. I have eaten at several of Emeril's restaurants in New Orleans. This one is good, but not up to par with them. I had the redfish. They were good, but not the best I have ever had. They are famous for the Banana Cream Pie. Also good, but not worth all the hype. This was... More

After a day at the theme parks, you need a decent meal and a drink (or several). Emeril's is OK - not great and not awful. The entrees have that mass-produced feeling, and the New Orleans style offerings wouldn't make it in NOLA. The desserts are large (and perhaps aren't what you need after a day of Universal Studios junk... More

Although Emeralds has a limited menu the shrimp and grits is a highlight done really well. The grits are creamy the shrimp spicy with cajan ettouffee sauce all in all highly recommended. The Banana cream pie is a must get for dessert but make sure you share it with your party. It's enough to last the whole week.

Stopped in here for a meal with some work customers, after an exhausting day at Universal Studios... I really wanted to head back to the hotel, and get something in the area of that. My customers wanted to try Emerill's. So I gave in. So glad I did, as the meal and full on dining experience was excellent. From the... More

I was visiting Universal studios for the day. We chose to have a quick dinner at Emerils. I forgot he cooks Cajun style, and likes his dishes spicy. The service was fantastic. I found it to be pricey, but we are in Universal studios. I just ordered the lobster bisque as my appetizer, and the barbecue shrimp ( appetizer) as... More

we decided to eat at Emerils last week whilst staying at a Universal Hotel. We have always enjoyed the restaurant so were keen to return. The food was as good as usual. However, we did feel that the levels of service were not quite as good as we have found previously.

Perhaps it's because it's located in the middle of a high volume theme park where they have to turn over the tables quickly, but we were disappointed with the food at this Emeril. Nothing was wrong with it, but it wasn't spectacular either. It was -in a word- OK. To start, we had the gumbo which was good but not... More

My husband and I dined there on a Wednesday night. We had made reservations well in advance.We were seated at our reservation time in the indoor patio area. Lovely view of CityWalk at night. I had the Hot&Spicy martini and my husband had The New G&T. Both were excellent. Duck Wings for appetizer were tasty. For entrees we had the... More

My husband and I went there on a Thursday night at 8:00 to meet out of town cousins for dinner. We sat quite awhile with no drinks or water on the table. The diet coke was flat and I had to keep telling the waiter to please replace it. He kept bringing me refills from the same bad tap or... More

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.
