Emeril's Delmonico Review

Chef Emeril Lagasse bought the century-old Delmonico restaurant in 1998 and converted it into a large, extravagant restaurant serving some of the most ambitious reinterpretations of classic Creole dishes in town. The atmosphere is lush, with high-ceiling dining spaces swathed in upholstered walls and superthick window fabrics, and the food is decadent. House-cured charcuterie is a reliable option, as are crab cakes, rabbit crepes, and sautéed fish meunière. Prime dry-aged steaks with traditional sauces have emerged as a specialty in recent years, but the menu gets more ambitious by the month. Plush and polish are the bywords here, and the service is exemplary.

    Great Meal in a Historical Building

    We enjoyed a meal at this restaurant while in NO this past May. We were there to celebrate a birthday. The food and service were very good. We thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance of the old historical building that houses the restuarant. The hostess was kind enough to contact a taxi for us when it was time to return to our hotel. We would definitely return for a special occasion.

    Outstanding Service during Mardi Gras

    We visited this wonderful establishment during a hectic time of the year. While it was near to our hotel, we got the best of all worlds. Dinner fit our schedule, late in the evening and we had a window seat for the parades of Mardi Gras, outside. The food was simply outstanding and while we had heard that service was a thing of the past in New Orleans, you couldn't prove it by Emeril's Delmonico. We were treated like long time customers and honored guests. A wonderful evening!
