It was very nice, the waiters knew exactly who we were when we arrived. Everyone was very friendly and called us by name. The food was served quickly by many different waiters. They split our salad and made suggestions as to what they thought we would like. We loved the Fried chicken dinner and the friend calamari appetizer and the wedge salad a lot. We will be back for sure.

Wonderful experience for my boyfriends 34th Birthday, the waiter was AMAZING. The food was AMAZING, they gave us complementary crab devil eggs that were AMAZING. We ordered the stuffed claim with crawfish, the bbq salmon, and bone in filet mignon. Let me say this, all of the food was AMAZING. My boyfriend was so pleased, the experience was worth the visit.

The barbeque shrimp were delicious. The gumbo was well seasoned; however, two, of 3 dining,ordered steak at cost of $48.00. Each steak was the size of 3 fingers and equal thickness...with no seasoning. It reminded me of: "How did you find your steak". " Under a mound of poorly seasoned fries." This meal was a disappointment in food quality and value.

All of the food was full of flavor and delicious. Portions were a bit large for me, but no complaints from my husband! Locally sourced ingredients are a real plus. The service was exceptional!

This was our last night in New Orleans ,and we were celebrating a successful cake decorating challenge at the IBDA food show . Our colleague Natasha had competed for 4 days and this was a celebration in honor of her coming in first in the wedding cake and taste profile and second overall.
Our reservation was early , as we knew she was exhausted. Our servers Young Mike , Blaine and Divante were amazing ! All were so attentive, but not annoying. Young Mike made fantastic recommendations for our appetizers , wine and dinner choices . All were spot on .
Divante had a great personality and went above and beyond. We had such an enjoyable experience, chatting with Divante and Blaine. We live in Portland Oregon, and really appreciate good food.
We were so happy , that after watching Emeril for years, on tv , that his restaurant was everything we expected and more. Emeril is very lucky to have such outstanding associates.
This was in the top 5 meals and experiences of our life !
Thanks so much for that !
Mike & Stacy

Food was very good and the wait staff did a very good job. The head waiter was psychically attentive and took good care of us, but seemed to be mentally somewhere else. Seem like we were an interruption to him. He did recommend good menu selections. The other wait staff were very friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was very good. This was a business meal and we enjoyed ourselves very much.
Thank you!

Best service we have ever received. The fried chicken and mac and cheese are filling and delicious. The barbecue salmon was delightful. Believe it or not the three different types of rolls were even mouth watering. You can't go wrong by eating here! Worth every penny!

This expensive dinner was somewhat disappointing, especially for me, a long time fan of Emeril Lagasse. We arrived 20 minutes early for a 7:30 PM reservation and, although the restaurant was half empty, the three of us were required to sit at the bar for half an hour paying a high price for 3 bar drinks.
The roast duck was only lukewarm when served with the other entrees and tasted "old", like it had been roasted a day or two earlier. The broccoli was not adequately cooked, almost raw and tough. The sirloin steak and pork chop served my son and wife, according to them, were tender and delicious and the banana cake desert was excellent. There were not many seafood choices on the menu.

Thai & his team, including the manager were really helpful at managing some food issues I have.
Not a huge number of items on the menu, but everything special and interesting combination of ingredients!
Everything we ordered was perfect!
Recommend ordering multiple starters, so you have room for the amazing soufflé!
Surprise, as regular drinkers of San Pellegrino, the most reasonably priced we’ve ever seen it on a menu!
Will definitely go next time we’re in NOLA!

Dinner at Emeril’s The food was amazing, but the wait staff needs more training. Pointing, “what do you want”... no pleasantries while conversing. They all seemed rushed, and not really interested in who they were serving. This is New Orleans, not NYC! Coffee spilled while serving, water refreshed with splashes. Coffee not out before dessert was served. When spending $200 for a classy ambiance and meal, one should expect more. Again tho, check out the awesome food!

This was my first experience at a restaurant of this level. My wife and I went for our anniversary while in town. The service and food were incredible. I was hesitant due to I thought the cost was going to be a lot higher then it was. But I spent just as much at other locations in New Orleans and the food and service here were far superior .

Extremely disappointed with the quality of food. I went there for my birthday dinner and ordered the beef filet. It was very dry, flavorless, and unevenly cooked. It came atop of a MOUND of greasy fries smothered in crawfish and cheese. Extremely poor plating, very unattractive. Not worth the price.
The Servers were excellent though and took care of us. I let customer service know of my disappointment and they apologized for ‘my subpar experience.’ Will not recommend or go back again.

My dining experience was amazing! The food and service is the best that I've had in New Orleans. This place is a must do if visiting. Plus, the tall bald manager with a beard (Marcus) was friendly and accommodating. He made our trip to New Orleans great!
