    An American and New Orleans classic. The gumbo is excellent and the chef doesn't tone down the spice at all. Enjoyed the ribeye on this visit.

    Try the sausage, it's great! The gumbo rocks! It has a home recipe feel that reminded me of my grandmother. And, the drum divine! Banana creme pie, oh yeah! Really great food and great sevice!

    Emeril's steak is quite possibly the best I've ever had. WIthout a doubt it was in the top five of my life. Fantastic service to boot. Let me swap for the sides that came with the chicken.

    Everything from the ambiance to the service to the food was great! The gumbo was unconventional but tasty. I had a Mezcal cocktail that was excellent. The food is pricy but consistent and good.

    To the world Emeril is a famous chef, to New Orleans he's a local. His original spot remains a top dinner or lunch choice. Get the chicken & waffles or bbq shrimp, your stomach will thank you later.

    Nice venue with delicious food , portions are European size, but good enough. Drink menu is satisfying with great wines and cocktails, and super rich variety of whiskey. Spacious. Prices affordable.

    Delicious pork chop, *perfectly* cooked. Lots of great char. Tender, juicy, not in the least dry. Really impressed at our meal here, tbh. Emeril could easily have chosen to coast on his rep.

    Perfect place for a date night. Pork chops are very big and please get the andouille and boudin appetizer with collard greens.

    Emeril put the fear of god into this banana cream pie. Just look at those bananas stacked ever so perfectly. Read more

    Try the Peach Bruschetta & the Andouille Crusted Rainbow Trout. My husband had the Buffalo Chappapeela Duck Wings, the arugula salad & the fish of the day (swordfish). Everything was delicious!

    Everything I ate here was wonderful. Try a medium rare burger and the extremely good barbecue shrimp, maybe the best in New Orleans.

    There are a few tables by the bar where you don't need a reservation. Service was fantastic, and the andouille crusted drum fish was light and delicious.

    The tuna salad is more like lettuce wraps, but it's the best thing on the menu. Emeril's is the finest restaurant in New Orleans, don't miss it.

    Dining Week Deals are perfect; Cornbread & Foccacia, Bucatini Nero were great; The Porkchop could be more tender, Rice Pudding not the best....

    Good food and great wine selection. If you want chocolate soufflé you must order it WITH your meal. We didn't even know it was on the menu and had to wait 45 minutes after we had dinner.

    Emeril Lagasse serves up Creole cuisine, like Homemade Andouille and Boudin, in the city that inspired it all at Emeril's New Orleans.

    The food was good. Service however was spotty. Seated at counter. I saw four other people get some small appetizers (asides from their regular ones) not on the menu but I was not given these.
