Food was excellent. Boudin balls were fabulous. Gumbo was very good. Creole shrimp was better than expected. Try the bananas foster. Impressive. Loud drunk table next to us cussing and discussing strippers was a disappointment.

Great food and drink, from the beginning of the meal to the end. The menu is more limited in scope and range than I expected, but all of our selections were excellent and the service was great. And the kitchen accommodated my son with a simple chicken and macaroni dish. Please, be sure to start with the calamari, the best... More

We enjoyed a nice dinner here. We ordered chicken and steaks. I was disappointed to have my medium filet come to me quite rare. My husband also ordered a medium filet and it was served perfectly medium. The server offered me some turtle soup while my steak was cooked some more. It was better, but still not really medium. The... More

We enjoyed one of the best meals and the best service I have ever had. Please, do yourself a favour and go to this restaurant. And while you are there, please tell Fransisco, the Captain of the servers that Debbie and Catherine from Canada say hello! What a great man, and he resumes dogs too! The food was absolutely divine.... More

Years ago I ate at Emerils Delmonico, it was the best meal I had ever had...fast forward 10 years, definitely not anywhere as good as before. Waiter acted like he would rather be anywhere other than servicing our table. Had the bone-in ribeye $45, the flavor was good but very fatty and gristle. I did enjoy the piano player in... More

While in New Orleans on business, Emeril's Delmonico came highly recommended for a nice dinner. The restaurant is in what appears to be an old house and has that New Orleans charm. The bar area is small, but we arrived early for our reservation and had a cocktail. Once at our table we were promptly greeted by our waiter. We... More

Staying in Garden District

Neighbourhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
