“A contender in a city of champions - especially for medium size groups”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

Every trip to New Orleans is all about food and we try to mix up old standards with something new. Emerill's will be added to our must list for future visits to NOLA. Ours group (15) and reserved the wine room, which was pretty tight, but you didn't notice because the service was Spectacular! With a specified type and price range the sommelier selected some great wines - one well known and the other a real find (200 cases produced). They picked an assortment of appetizers; calamari being the consensus favorite. Every entree was superb and the deserts to die for. Don't pass up the banana cream pie.

“Greatest Dining Experience”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

Our first time at Emerils and it was the high point of our trip to New Orleans. We sat at the Chef's Food Bar which allows you to watch the chefs and other workers in action. We over looked Chef Natalie who was very busy and efficient but also very friendly. Our server was Herman and he was excellent. There were eight in our party and we were all made to feel like we were the only customers they had in the restaurant. I had the Taste of Summer 4-course Dinner and each course only got better. The only thing that was bad in any way was we had to leave too soon. It is truely dinner with a show and it's ourstanding!

“Great Service & Awesome Food”
Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

We had a party of 16 in the wine room. The service was spectacular! Our wine glasses and water glasses were always full. Everyone thought that their meal was great. Calamari appetizer was my favorite! Desserts were all really good. My best meal in New Orleans.

“Outstanding Experience - Kids Really Enjoyed”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

We arrived in New Orleans on a Monday afternoon - and I figured that it was best to go to a high end restaurant for lunch as opposed to dinner since I had my 14 and 12 year old boys with us. Boy, I could not have found a better place. The service was incredible. My boys were so impressed that they commented that this was the fanciest restaurant that they had been to - and they eat out with us at least once a week. We started with boudin balls, and they were delicious. We then had some chicken gumbo which was awesome. My 12 year old was able to order something specific for him as he is not as daring, and he was very impressed with the quality of his food. Overall I highly recommend Emeril's, and if you are looking to save money, go at lunch. We would highly recommend and would go again next time we are in New Orleans.

“Everything I Expected!!”
Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

The entire experience from the complementary valet service, to the attention to every detail of dining experience was excellent! We made our selections of several one-of-a-kind appetizers into a tasting menu -- the kitchen graciously accommodated our whimsical order and made us feel special even as they hosted a major celebrity just across the room at the slightly opaque chef's table! Good choice for dinner Ahhhnold! I'm such you'll be baaaack!
