    We loved it! The service was excellent and the food was outstanding! The best thing was the pineapple upside down cornbread with bacon jam.....definitely outstanding! A great wine list as well! I think my only disappointment is that I was "underwhelmed" by the dessert...wish that was better!

    The ambiance is nice. The food was great and so was our server. If you don't want to know what goes on in the kitchen do not sit at the chefs counter. Majority of the cooks are not wearing gloves. Noone washed their hands the entire time we sat here. They were playing with their phones then went back to touching the food (gross)! The chef calling out all the orders. Was eating (gushers), drinking and touching the food. Overall a great experience but they really should work on hand sanitation

    My family loves all of Emeril's restaurants and this was our first visit to Meril. We enjoyed a mix of the standard menu and Sunday brunch offerings. Outstanding brunch drink options for both the 'bottomless' mimosa and a delightfully crisp and refreshing-in-NOLA-humidity mango frozen drink. For entrees we loved the brunch chicken and waffles (a light taste of crystal hot sauce in the syrup?? BAM!), the chicken sandwich (amazing pickles!) and the steak frites off the main menu. Amazing all the way around. We didn't leave room for dessert but I recommend you do as the options were super-tempting. The restaurant has great ambiance, family friendly especially for brunch, and absolutely will be a place I return to when visiting NOLA. Enjoy!

The food was delicious and loved being able to try many different things. Marcus also stopped by to say hello, which was a treat. Thanks for the lovely experience.

    Disappointed. We ate a fabulous dinner here 20 years ago. We were drawn back for that reason. Menu items this time were not up to snuff. Service was good as expected. No complaints as a matter of fact we arrived early and were seated near the bar. Enjoyed the Emeril Chardonnay.

    This is the second of Emeril's restaurant that we have visited, and the meal was fantastic, we had eaten dinner at Commander's Palace the night before, so having two phenomenal meals in a row is a great excuse to come back again to NOLA.

    The service personnel were excellent proving a high level of attention to our table. The noise level was loud which made our dining experience less than desirable. The food was good, however the flavor and seasoning is not what I expected from this restaurant and chef. The food came across as rather bland.

    The service was horrible. Lots of blame on the kitchen being overwhelmed with crowds due to Jazzfest but the reality is that they couldn’t even get the basics right. There were no less than 7 waiters standing around for food to come out and yet we had to ask numerous times to just get water glasses filled. We waited more than an hour for food while others that were seated after us received quicker service. When we did receive the food, only a part of our order came and it was wrong. I know restaurants have bad nights but this one was especially bad. There are far better choices.
