Description: Opened in 1990 by Chef Emeril Lagasse in New Orleans, Emeril's Restaurant serves his signature style of "New New Orleans" cuisine, featuring the best local and regional seasonal ingredients. Nestled in a renovated pharmacy warehouse on Tchoupitoulas Street in the heart of the city's Warehouse District, Emeril's interior features rustic exposed brick and glass walls flanking one side of the main dining room, with plaster-lathe wood forming a wine wall on the other. Guests may enjoy watching the action in the kitchen while enjoying a meal at the chef's Food Bar.

This is the first meal we ate on our recent trip to New Orleans. We had lunch reservations for 12:30 but got there early; they seated us immediately. The service was excellent. Husband and I both ordered the pre fixe lunch special, 3 courses for $20. We had gumbo and tomato bisque for appetizer, both wonderful. He had the duck and I had mussels etouffee for entrees, very nice presentation and very tasty. Dessert was chocolate peanut butter pie, rich; and vanilla bean creme brulee which was excellent. Yes, it was expensive, but so worth it for the experience.

We barely made it for the lunch seating at 1:54pm but were treated like we were there at 12:00 pm. The service was impeccable, attention to every detail. The food was awesome starting with the chef-made aundouille and boudin sausage. The entrees were of herculean porportions and the banana creme pie to die for. My dining experience here was memorable to say the least.

I would highly recommend that anyone traveling to New Orleans visit Emeril's restaurant in the warehouse district. The service is impeccable and the food is outstanding. Make sure you have reservations!

Emeril's may have been cutting edge once. Maybe it thinks it still is because the servers seem to think they are all that. But it ain't, and they ain't. In fact, the whole place is "fine" but pretty much a yawner that resembles most every "hip" open kitchen nowadays. And the service on the night we dined there was horrendous. Not just slow; I don't necessarily mind slow. But uncoordinated and neglectful; drinks and coffee that never came, entrees served two minutes after appetizers -- all done without apologies or offers to make amends. Worse yet, our server would never accept responsibility herself, instead repeatedly pointing the finger at the supposedly backed-up bar, the failure by others to brew a fresh pot of decaf, etc. Now, the food itself was very good (although the much-heralded banana cream pie was, like so much else, over-rated) and that is what earns the place a 3 star rating. But with great power comes great responsibility, and I would expect more from an iconic New Orleans than what this place brought on the night we dined there.
