One word... YUMMY!. I'm an Emeril's fan and was very excited about coming here for my birthday. I did a little research on line to find out what people were saying. I came across both good and bad reviews and was a little skeptical. I was worried I was expecting it to be too good and be let down. I couldn't have been more wrong. The food was delicious!! I can't even begin to explain all the delicious flavors I tasted that day. If I could come to this restaurant for the rest of my life, I would die happy... that is how great the food is here. If you're worried about the prices being too high or being disappointed... I recommend you go for lunch and try them out. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
Shocked and Pleased at the same time, Definately a repeat customer when possible. Was in Vegas a week with husband and 2 teenaged children. My husband hates the Emeril shows and refused to go but the kids and I went the last night because we wanted to experience what we watch on The Food Network. Called at 4:45 got a seating for 5:30, seated at 5:25. Prices were a bit shocking when you are only having an appetizer and drink but once the food arrived the price could have been tripled. Hands down the best food of the week. We had one of the daily special cold starters with shrimp and salad, the cod and noodles and the lobster and mache. So good we decided dessert wouldn't hurt then either and once again perfect. "BAM" doesn't come close. Best $83 plus tip of the week. We were all stuffed and my husband wasn't happy when we were all too full to eat dinner with him until well after 10 PM. Going to New Orleans next year and will be going for the tasting menu at that time. The wait staff appeared put out by our lack of ordering a full meal got much more pleasant after ordering dessert though. Will visit any Emeril's I come across from now on and the kids are hooked.
If you can?t show up exactly at lunch or dinner, don?t bother showing up at all.. We got there at 3pm and apparently, it was in-between lunch and dinner. Personnel showed us a limited menu of 6-12 entree?s. They seemed to discourage us from dining there; however, we had heard great things about the restaurant and were very hungry. So we chose to stay. After ordering, we asked for bread. The server refused to serve us bread because we had come in between lunch and dinner and it was against ?policy.? During our meal, we were served by 4-5 different servers. We felt abandoned, like the unwanted child. The food was very good; but it was overpriced. Our total bill came to $67 for three women (and two of them eat hardly anything). We were all still so hungry after the main dish that we had to order desert. So decide for yourself.
Amazing. I couldn't say enough good things about this restaurant. I went thinking it wasn't going to live up to the hype of a "celebrity chef". Everything was great, the staff was very, very, pleasant and attentive and the wine pairing was perfect. I spent the next two months hunting down some of the wines. I loved the atmosphere and would go back in a minute.
Everything we expected. My husband and I were so anxious to FINALLY get to experience the fine cuisine of that culinary mastermind EMERIL. We stopped by for a quick snack. We had the blackened shrimp and crabcakes...along with the BEST lemonade we have ever had! A little pricey for our taste...but worth it.
BAM!. Emeril's is A-1 with the food, ambience, and service! One has a hard task in choosing what to eat from the menu, and it's hard to leave room for dessert!
Awesome service AMAZING food!. LOVED LOVED IT! We had dinner at Emeril's and were amazed by the taste of everything! My friend's mashed potatoes that came with her chicken were amazing and my mushroom soup with garlic was good too.. I had a pasta with pri pri broth and clams and scallops. To die for! I loved that it had chorizo in it to.
Delicious. Went here for dinner before the David Copperfield show. It was so delicious. We all ordered fish entrees. The fish was perfectly cooked. The sauce was delicious. However it was kinda salty. The service was good. They brought out the food all at once at the same time. The bread basket was good especially the cornbread. The table we sat on is actually pictured! We made reservations and had to wait 15 minutes.
We recently got married in Vegas and decided to have a group dinner at Emeril's. There were 7 of us and had approx 4 servers. We didn't mind the multiple helpers because they include their tip on tables of groups of 6 or more. We were very impressed. We naturally were served all together. We had the barbeque shrimp and crab cakes for starters. Yes the crab cakes were DELIGHTFUL, no the shrimp wasn't the best we ever had. Infact, Gallager's at New York New York had the best appetizer if you're in the mood for JUMBO shrimp. We were pretty much disappointed in the shrimp appetizer. We did get another shrimp plate with pasta and oysters and was very satisfied with that.
My new bride on the other hand got the salad, and was very dissatisfied. I was pretty much shocked that we ate at Gallager's (unheard of to us) the night before and received the same entrees with more quality food. When she ordered the salad she figured onions, tomatoes, maybe olives, something unique would be included with her $10 salad. She got lettuce and vingarette dressing. Period. Of coarse the rest of our party shared our very expensive entree with her since she had lettuce and it was her special night.
We did enjoy our complimentary salamon mousse though. Most of the guests at the table said on a scale of 1-10 how would they rate their meal, most said 9, but three of us said 7, and my wife and I were the special occassion and I believe that counts.
My very favorite restaurant in recent memory.. One of the best meals I have ever eaten out. Service was excellent. We had a team of people waiting on us hand and foot. Great recommendations, knowledgable about food, menu, etc. This is a fish house, but they had several vegetarian options for me, and waitress was open to creating pretty much anything I wanted. I had the portabello mushroom pasta and it was delicious. My friend had ahi tuni and a scallop pasta appetizer, both of which she loved. We were full when desert came, but definitly made room for Emeril's famous banana creme pie. This was SO good - we faught over the last bites. (Just kidding, but almost!) I have the recipe from his website and intend to try to re-create the scene in my kitchen. This is a restaurant not to be missed.
