    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.

    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 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!

    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.

    Start with the duck wings. ... The awesome begins. ... Entree to your taste. ... Then partake of the Holy Goodness known as their banana cream pie. Thou shalt not be disappointed.

    Greg Stein · November 13, 2013

    Homemade Andouille and Boudin, Powerfully delicious pork chops followed by sweet potato ice cream @ roasted pineapple. Can you say "BAM!" The Banana cream pie was good too

    J Monique Collier · March 24, 2013
  • Kobe S.

    I wish I tried the banana cream pie and the pork chop. I tried the chicken and waffles. Overall the meal was mediocre. Not horrible at all. Particularly the organic chicken was tasty.

  • Mypat B.

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

    Mypat Bobo · December 11, 2014
  • Caitlin Mae B.

    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.

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

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

    Food Network · January 18, 2011
  • Ronald V.

    Excellent service with reasonable price. Foods are great too. Sweet and sour lamb spare ribs is a must for appetizer :-)

    Banana Cream Pie!!!! Good lord it's divine. That's enough to bring you here. Perfect ambiance as well!

    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.

    The home-made Andouille and Boudin is absolutely divine.! Absolutely one of the very best restaurants in New Orleans.

    I loved the food and the wine, I recommend this place to anyone.

  • Frances Z.

    They pad the prices when you pay- watch out! Though the food and service is delicious this pissed me off.

    Get a seat overlooking the kitchen - it's great entertainment while you wait for your food!

    If you leave this place without eating a slice of Banana Cream Pie, you have failed at life.

    The drum is incredible. Mac and cheese is also amazing...not too creamy, just right.
