We celebrated my husband's birthday on Sunday, March 8th. We chose Emeril's because we enjoyed it so much the last time we were there. Food is delicious, service was great and ambiance was perfect.

Great food, great service. Would not give me saffron-tomato sauce because it was only for a certain dish. How petty!

Food was delicious, however ordered appetizer which was never served. dining mate ordered salad dressing on side and arrived with it mixed in. Was expecting exceptional experience since it was my first time at an Emeril's and wasn't blown away . Restaurant was nearly empty when I arrived yet was seated adjacent to server's area & I had reservations

They served free champagne to us upon arrival. Which was a welcomed surprise. We had the stuffed clams appetizer, which was delicious. Wish it was an entree. My scallops and shrimp were good and my husband’s swordfish was wonderful.
We enjoyed our meal tremendously. Unfortunately too full to try desert. Next visit it’s a must!

The fried oysters, a New Orleans staple which should have been an easy win for Emeril, were shriveled, dry and hard. The side dishes were no better than those found in a cheap ribs joint.

Staff attentive and smiles. Food very good. Would like to see more roasted chicken for the non-fish diners and a healthier pick than frying. Overall, a good experience.

Waiter and other staff were very friendly. The food was all excellent. A little pricey, but as long as the quality is there, I don't mind.

All 4 of us loved all of our food. None of us had any complaints. They even held our dessert for us until our show ended and all we had to do was show our receipt! Server was fantastic. Great atmosphere. Will definitely go again if the opportunity arises!!

Let me start out by saying I don’t like to leave poor reviews. We Made reservations for a Friday night, party of 2. We sat promptly and waited for Greta after said she’d be “right back”. 10 min later, still no Greta. We decide to get up and go to bar and have dinner. Bartender very attentive. Drinks came immediately. Appetizer also came quickly. We ordered calamari. It was over done, yet cold. Seemed it was sitting and then reheated. Slightly tough to chew on. Sat in some creamy sauce. Didn’t care for it. The entree took a total of 45 min. It was just two pieces of fish. The entrees finally arrived hot and fresh. I was e cited. Plates looked amazing.
When each of us bit into our entrees, it seemed they forgot to wash off the ocean sea water. Omg! All you could taste was salt , salt, salt!! I tried wiping off as much as I could. Clearly the chef was a bit too eager with the shaker!! There was no way I was going to send it back and wait another 45 min. Ended up getting pizza at the food court later on. At least it was good! Will never go back to Emerils fish house! :(

Food was exceptional all around. Aps, entrees and soup. Service was extremely slow. Im not sure if they were understaffed but it took almost two hours for dinner which seemed long and it seemed like a long time between courses. Our server was great and visited the table often for drinks and to check on us. We were going to see a show so we almost had to cancel our dessert after waiting 25 minutes. Ive eaten here several times and this is the only issue Ive ever had.

Fresh, brine-y oysters on the half-shell were a perfect starter, and a relative bargain. My grouper was perfectly cooked in that Emeril's "kicked up" style. My wife's filet mignon (I know, right?) was also perfectly charred and cooked as she likes it (she's a butcher's daughter and so not easily pleased). Friendly, helpful staff and great service.

One hint for the waitstaff: The customers know it's a slow night. Don't argue about who's going to go home early within earshot of your clients.

The food was very salty, almost inedible. I ordered the Chilean Sea Bass and was very disappointed, I did complain to the waitress about it but nothing was done. My husband ordered the Grouper with shrimp and it was also a little salty. However, the server was very pleasant.

We had a great time! We went for my mother’s birthday and the server even threw in a desert for her on the house! The server was very attentive and my water glass was never empty. Greta did a fantastic job!

Too loud. Not the gourmet experience I thought I would get. Very loud and felt like a diner. Another irritating thing is that there is no restroom in the restaurant. One had to go out the casino for quite some distance before you could get to the bathroom. By the time I got back to my table my dinner has been served it was already cold

My wife and I love the food at the Fish House. We especially like the staff there. Our waitress Krista always does a fabulous job.
There are so many delicious choices on the menu that it means selecting just one can be difficult. Next time I may have to order page one. Lol

Price quoted by server for market price was not what we were charged. Long wait for food but a busy Saturday night. Food was okay but not really that special.

Very overpriced, poor and rude service, we were rushed through our whole meal, the wine selection was very poor, overall we spent way too much money on something we could have easily made at home and were treated like crap.

The Fish House was the perfect choice for our belated valentines. The food was perfect and the waiters suggestions spot on. We asked not to be rushed and enjoyed our meal and the pace we wanted. If there was room after the clams and Chilean sea bass we would have had dessert too!

We each got a king crab leg appetizer since the waiter told us it would be kind of small to share. He was not kidding! My husband had a thicker leg than I did. I seriously finished my order in 3 bites. At $18.00 an order that is ludicrous. Honestly, it was not even that tasty and we added salt, butter and lemon to it. We opted for steamed rather than cold. Maybe the flavor was steamed away, lol.
My husband got a filet mignon and I got grilled salmon. Both entrees were very tasty. We opted to split a pecan tart with our cappuccino and tea. It was so small and had we had known, we would have each gotten one instead of sharing, but it was good. Overall, I expected Emeril's restaurant to be outstanding and it was not. The appetizer was disappointing but everything else wad good but by no means outstanding.

The food was just ok. The stuffed clams with shrimp was very good as well as the calamari. I wouldn’t recommend the octopus small plate as the octopus was overcooked and mushy. I also got the avocado toast which was just ok; wouldn’t get again.
