We have been, and enjoyed this restaurant many, many times. The food is always good, but something has changed. The service is now a team concept...think Outback. Three servers were responsible our table, consequently no one has ownership and the service was horrible. We sat for extended periods of time for every request, sometimes the server left before we were... More

We used to watch Emeril on the Food Network and all of his various shows. I decided we'd try out Emeril's Orlando on a family trip to Orlando. The service was very good. Knowledgeable, friendly, attentive. The food was good, but very pricey as you would expect at one of those Orlando attractions. Probably since Emeril's name is associated, that... More

We had lunch one day at Emerils and quite enjoyed it. The service was slow at first, but I guess we were the fist diners that day and once more staff became available, it was fine. They offer a good selection of wines and we picked a very nice and reasonably priced white, which was brought out perfectly chilled. The... More

We popped into Emeril's (at CityWalk) for dinner one night during our recent trip to Universal Orlando. Even though we didn't have reservations, because this restaurant is at a higher price point than most of the offerings in CityWalk, we were able to be seated quickly. I had a specialty pasta with a glass of red wine, hubs had lobster... More

Had a chance to go emeril's a group of 7. Had steak which was $52 per person. The meat was arguably $15 quality. The drinks were poorly made and we had to change them to make them drinkable. The kids menu was so small that we had to get 2 per kid (one of the kids weighs 45 Ibs) The... More

We have dined at several Ritz Carleton resorts and the service was better here'd than the RC! Our waiter Zay was super and quick to respond to the smallest question- don't let Universal city walk dissuade you- its first class!

The best meal I've ever had was at one of Emeril's restaurants..unfortunately this was not it. Service was good but the meal was not a memorable one. I ordered the shrimp and grits figuring that Emeril's would do it right, however it was bland and tasteless. Appetizers were also rather bland. Of all the meals we had during our week... More

Ambience is lovely, staff is attentive, got a table with a Citywalk view! I have to say that all the meals we got were the best we have had in awhile! Salmon, grilled chicken, steak. My daughter got the kids filet and rants about it being her fav! Pricer place but worth every penny! Will for sure be back again!

A great restaurant with incredible food, wine and ambience. I would only fault this place with respect to the loos (washrooms). The Gent's consisted of just one, wheelchair accessible, sit down convenience. Consequently, in the two occasions I went to the lop, there was a queue.

Located at the epicenter of Universal's CityWalk®, Emeril's bustling eatery overlooks the park's lagoon and all of the action of this thriving Orlando hot spot. The free standing two-story building is a high-energy, creative environment for fine food and wine, with soaring thirty-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, stone walls, and iron staircase that lend the feel of an industrial warehouse loft. At the center of this modern food studio is an open kitchen and chef's food bar, where lucky guests can watch up close, the chefs at work. The restaurant's second floor offers two private party rooms that feature oak barrel slat ceilings, a 10,000 bottle wine gallery, and an intimate chef's tasting room that seats 8.
