We had the petite taster's menu for $65. With soft drinks, tax and tip, it came out to about $85-$90 per person. Pros: food is great Cons: pricey but worth it

I don't mind spending money for a special occasion meal providing the food and the service are commensurate with a high-ticket entr?e. (about $40 per entr?e.) Pros: great martini Cons: non-existent service, slow to get food, food not special more

Overpriced 3/9/2009

Food wasn't amazing but prices were more

one of the best meals I've ever had 10/17/2008

where's the heat? 7/2/2008

based on emeril's nawlins roots and notable catch-phrase (bam!), we expected a lot more heat in the menu items. instead the menu was surprisingly ambitious and bland at the same time. the tai snapper special, for example, featured a cacophony of salmon roe, pickled mushrooms, beets and gnocchi. the fish itself was tasteless and undercooked, and the roe should have been left out of the dish altogether. the wine list was excessively huge (read: war and peace) and probably could have been pared down for this kind of menu. Pros: huge wine list (could be pro or con in this case) Cons: surprisingly bland and overly ambitious menu more

Word of Caution 6/22/2008

Last night marked the second time that a bartender and/or server has adjusted their own tip on my credit card slip. The food is mediocre at best, SEVERELY overpriced and the ambiance...well, there isn't one. The whole place feels hectic, and with SO many other options in Las Vegas, it is not worth your dollars. Salad was wilted, dressing was OVERPOWERED by garlic and house wine, which is no big deal as far as taste goes, is extrodinarily overpriced. Cons: parking more

OVERATED 5/28/2008

For the price, food definately did not live up to what I had hoped for. Server seemed extremely rushed and spent no more than 30 seconds at our table each time. The only thing was was extraordinary was the person who kept refilling our water every time we took a sip. Pros: Water Refilled Very quickly Cons: FOOD more

Don't believe the hype 5/1/2008

Six of us (casual 30 somethings) went to dinner at Emeril's Friday 4/25/08. I am by no means a food snob and am not too picky, however I'm spoiled to be from Charleston SC (a great culinary town) and expect a good meal, particularly for the prices. Our waiter (we didn't catch his name) did not give us a wine menu and gave us menus, half of which listed the special sheet for the night before. To make it easy we ordered a glass of house cab sauv - later found out were $15 apiece. The waiter took our app order and we soon received some underwhelming cornbread and pretty decent apps (chowder and a couple others). The waiter took our order and strongly steered us clear of the fish special (""Do not get it"") This was well and good and he strongly recommended the steak on a plank - the 2nd most expensive item on the menu at $40. We also got two fish plates, the lobster -$60, and shrimp over rice and some sides. Then the wait began. Now, I believe that good food should take time but AN HOUR WENT BY AND WE DID NOT SEE A THE WAITER AND NO MAIN COURES. It was nearly comical that we had zero attention from the waiter for the hour we waited. The meal came and there was a strong disappointment across the table. Again, we are an easy to please group and really didn't mind waiting as we're on vacation and you know, it's Vegas and we're in a great mood until... The steak were flavorless, overcooked and just not good at all. The lobster couldn't have been two pounds unless the stuffing was included. The shrimp over rice was bland. The jambalaya side was plain and flavorless. The mashed potato and mac and cheese were good but $9? salmon entree and other fish entree were good. It was very disappointing - there is way to much competition to bother visiting - this is just a cash in on a name (and I like Emeril's show). By the way, on the auto gratuity for the 6 top the tip on our over $600 tab(no dessert, hardly any drinks) was nearly $90. Buyer beware! Pros: Pretty cool space Cons: Food, Service and Prices more

disappointing 4/1/2008

as a devoted foodnetwork fan, i was overflowing with anticipation to try emeril's restaurant. it was a huge disappointment- the food was salty, portions were small, and it was really pricey. the bread that came out at the beginning and the cornbread was cold and dry- emeril, you can do better than that! the selection was limited- huge downside. all in all, ABSOLUTELY NOT RECOMMENDED. Pros: atmosphere (good for people watching) Cons: food (too salty, seafood aftertaste was border spoiled, cold bread and cornbread, chocolate dessert was not decadent) more

We were expecting far better... 1/4/2008

We brought a group of 9 locals who gathered to honor our friend who just turned 40 years old. Pros: Banana Cream Pie Dessert, Wine List Cons: Ambiance, Design, App's and Main Courses, Staff Appearance more

just ok 12/17/2007

service was poor - very slow and inattentive. i got the shrimp bbq as appetizer and it was good nothing out of this world. i also got the kobe beef which was a little fatty but tasty. my girlfriend got the ribeye with mustard sauce which again was just ok. more

One word... YUMMY! 11/5/2007

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. Pros: The food! Cons: Might be a little too pricy for those on a tight budget more

Shocked and Pleased at the same time, Definately a repeat customer when possible 6/24/2007

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. Pros: Awesome food, filling and the experience was more than expected Cons: cost but well worth it in the end, wait staff put out when not ordering full menu more

If you can?t show up exactly at lunch or dinner, don?t bother showing up at all. 3/19/2007

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. Pros: Food was tasty Cons: Overpriced, poor service, snotty attitude more

Amazing 1/18/2007

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. Pros: Attentive Staff, Great food and wine list Cons: A little loud, but not bad more

Everything we expected 11/10/2006

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. Pros: Food Cons: Service and Attitude of servers..not too friendly more

BAM! 10/28/2006

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! Pros: Great food! Cons: You must be in shape to get there; I'd swear you will walk a mile. Staff is snooty and makes you wait forever! more

Awesome service AMAZING food! 9/21/2006

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. Pros: the food and service! Cons: From valet to the restuarant it's quite a walk.. more

Delicious 9/16/2006

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. Pros: Fish perfectly done, ambience, service Cons: wait more

Great Service 7/31/2006

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. Pros: great atmosphere, great service, strong drinks Cons: poor salad, poor sauce/dressing more

My very favorite restaurant in recent memory. 7/13/2006

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. Pros: Amazing food and Service Cons: Pricey, Hard to get dinner reservation more
