Emeril's New Orleans Fish House Review

Chef Emeril Lagasse's first restaurant in Vegas may have lost its initial luster, but it's still one of few places on the Strip to eat creole-inspired cuisine: gumbo, roasted fish, and shellfish, such as barbecued shrimp, Louisiana-style étouffée, or oysters on the half shell with house-cured bacon and leeks. Sides like skillet cornbread, mac 'n' cheese, and jambalaya are hearty accompaniment for beef rib eye with warm remoulade sauce or sweet bourbon barbeque chicken. The central bar is great for a glass of white with fish tacos or a beer with oyster po'boy at lunch. Be sure to summon one of Emeril's bottled hot sauces for extra kick. Finish with a slice of banana cream pie.

    happy hour @emeril's

    We went on a weekday afternoon during the early part of happy hour. We were immediately seated at the bar and ordered drinks and deserts. It took a long time to get our drinks, and the bartender looked a little overwhelmed trying to help everyone and answer the phones. They brought my wife the wrong dessert twice. I had the banana cream pie, which was pretty amazing. Wife was really happy with the bread pudding. The bartender gave me my drink for free because of the mixups. I would go back, but maybe not during an understaffed happy hour

    Overrated

    Service was incredibly indifferent and slow. Slopped water into the glasses, 15-20 minutes between check ups on us, entire meal was over 2 hours for salad, entree and dessert.
    I had the trout, there was so much goup on it I could not tast the trout. Others had similar experience. Not going back.

    Yuck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Salty, real salty food. Did I say salty? YUCK. Order a crab cake. YUCK and 40% filling! Waiter floated around, but could get him to focus on our meal. My wife's fish wasn't cooked fully and was cold to the pallet. YUCK! Don't go. Did I say DON'T GO! Oh yes, DON'T GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Truly Delicious!

    I've been to Wolfgang Puck's various restaurants, and not been too impressed, so didn't expect much from Emeril. Boy, was I wrong!!! Everything here was just so darn tasty! My Texas Redfish encrusted in pecan topping was the best fish I've ever tasted, DH's filet mignon topped with a crab sauce was unbelievable, and the signature banana cream pie was just delicious. Even the after dinner coffee was extra tasty ... a dinner to remember ... next time I go to Vegas, this'll be one of the first places I return to.

    A Spectacular Dinner for a Special Occasion

    We had the pleasure of dining at Emeril's for my father's 60th birthday party. We were delighted by the waitstaff, as they were attentive and very knowledgeable about the appetizers and entrees. We were dazzled by the skill and thoughtfulness each dish was prepared with. The seafood gumbo was highly seasoned, incredibly fresh, and absolutely delicious. My seared scallops with shrimp in chimichurri sauce bursted with flavor and the proteins were cooked perfectly. We look forward to many return visits.
