    EXCELLENT experience. Great service. Try the Garlic Crusted Drum - amazing! Ooey Gooey Cake was spectacular and I don't even like sweets! The restaurant has 3 floors - much bigger than what it looks.

    The buttermilk fried chicken is so tender you can cut it with fork. I will have dreams about the bourbon mashed sweet potatoes-- ridiculously good. SAVE ROOM FOR DESSERT. I didn't & regret it.

    Garlic crusted drum is awesome , have it with your wine of choice i had with a sangria. Also inquire about the Gumbo of the day i was lucky the gumbo had roasted duck that day but it varies.

    If visiting New Orleans make this your first stop in the French Quarter. Drop in for an early evening Sazerac and stay for dinner with house favorites like shrimp & grits and buttermilk fried chicken. Read more

    We ordered the Beet Salad, Shrimp and Grits, and Garlic Crusted Drum, along with CRÈME BRÛLÉE TRIO. All were fantastic and would definitely dine and order again. maître d' who was kind of rude.

    Love the jalapeno cornbread! Every dish I have tried has been good and the prices are surprisingly reasonable considering it is one of Emeril's restaurants. Awesome servers - ask for Travis.

    Amazing food. Make sure you stop by while you're in town. The fried chicken breast is totally delicious. The crab cakes are too! & order the drunken monkey ice cream for dessert!

    I'll go with the consensus: the shrimp & grits and ooey gooey cake are winners. And, of course, the BBQ shrimp are a must at any Emeril's restaurant. Enjoy!

    Our favorite meal in New Orleans two years ago. A huge disappointment this trip. Exact same duck dish was very dry and bland this time. App's were mediocre. Perhaps prime has passed for NOLA.
