New Orleans history and culture has always been and remains my culinary muse. When I first opened Emeril’s doors in 1990, we aimed to bring fresh preparations and infuse creativity into New Orleans culinary traditions and culture. We continue to challenge ourselves to bring our guests an exceptional experience, inspired by the various influences of New Orleans cuisine with a focus on innovation and refinement. The chef’s tasting is curated to be a journey building upon flavors and complexities of our ingredients infused with unique modernization. For New Orleanians and visitors alike we strive to create dishes, and environments that restore and transport people, leaving them happier than when they came to us. - Chef Emeril Lagasse

    Tonight was the start of the new tasting menu, and it was a total home run! The entire waitstaff was so attentive and engaging, and the food was some of the best I’ve had in my life. The staff also talked about how encouraging the culture is of the restaurant and it was evident in the service we received. We thank the staff for making our engagement celebration so special— we can’t wait to visit again someday!

    Classy from beginning to end and great food too! It is abundantly clear why Emeril has been an icon for this long and his flagship restaurant shows it! Great food, the BBQ shrimp melted in my mouth, and the crusted salmon was to die for. The staff were professional and despite our late reservation made sure we were able to enjoy dinner in a leisurely fashion. Everything moved at a relaxing pace and every step of the experience was a treat. Will definitely be back!

    Too many people, different people coming to our table to fill water glasses, replace silverware, give new napkins, take orders, explain dishes. So many workers for such a small place that took away from having an intimate dinner with my spouse. Understanding menu will soon be enhanced, current menu that we ordered from was not as good as what we expected given the name & culinary history. Only menu item we truly enjoyed was the gumbo but that too could use some work. Shrimp were hard to cut & they came right off the bed of rice so hard to eat together. But the sauce with jalapeños was outstanding. Also, the fried ball with cheese & seafood toast was excellent. Lastly, would have liked to known about the food bar when making the reservation, would have preferred to sit there!

    Absolutely fabulous meal, from the pre-dinner cocktails at the bar through the spectacular dessert. Food was exquisite, service was the absolute best. Craig, our head waiter, knew the wine list, knew the specials and was able to provide meaningful guidance for those of us who were overwhelmed by the menu choices. This was more than dinner, it was an experience.

    We all did tasting me he’s with wine pairings. For the most part the meal was wonderful, but the halibut course was not good - either overcooked or poor technique, but the texture was unpleasant. Every other course was fantastic, however, and the wait staff was plenty accommodating with dietary restrictions.

    Always make sure I visit Emeril's on every trip to New Orleans. Not sure what was going on this time, but the service was not up to the usual standard. Had to wait nearly half an hour after my appetizer for my main course to arrive. Also , the menu has changed and I preferred the old one.

    I have loved going to this restaurant for years. We looked forward to this night with anticipation. My 2 favorite dishes from Emerils in the past have been the pork chop and his signature banana cream pie. NEITHER items remain ! The wait staff were wonderful and the mixologist bartender was great. However , the price is ridiculous for the food quality. We will not return.
