    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.

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

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

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

    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.
