“Great Service”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Had a great time at Delmonico. The service was superb, really personable and attentive. The appetizers were incredible (bbq shrimp and crispy pork cheek) but the star of the show was the chicory coffee infused beignets. We're still dreaming about those...

When we go to Las Vegas, we always make sure we have a meal at Emeril's Delmonico at the Venetian. Always a superb experience. This time as we were in New Orleans with another two couples, we took them there to share the great experience.....well, that was very disappointing-the ambiance and staff were great but the food was mediocre at best. Our salads were just ok, nothing special, one couple had the pork cheek, which was pretty good, but the big disappointment was with the bone in ribeyes-bland, very little taste, low quality meat, NOTHING like the one in the Vegas restaurant. The desserts were ok, again, no wow factor. Wine selection was good. Would love to know what happened, and how Emeril's restaurant at his home base serves mediocre food.....

“Top service, Top Dollar”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

While this is not an inexpensive restaurant, the money is well spent as service, ambiance and food are all excellent and worth the price. There was also a live piano player who never seemed to take a break. The wait staff is on the ball and know their stuff. Our waiter suggested an alternative wine once he knew our price range. It was an excellent Napa Valley Pinot Noir. Their gumbo is one of the best. They have an interesting charcuterie platter for an appetiser and we all (four of us) shared it. We all had the filet which came on a bed of spinach. We wondered how they could make spinach taste so good. This is a good choice for a special occasion dinner.

“Best dinner in NO”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Hands down worth the money. The Louisiana drum fish is a must at any of his restaurants and the hanger steak was great. The gumbo was fantastic and the gnocci was incredible. Have the bignets somewhere else. We were told later that the banana's foster and banana crème pie were the best ever.
