THE BEST!. I took my boyfriend to Delmonico for his birthday while we were in NO on vacation and it was quite simply the BEST meal we had ever eaten! Beautiful restaurant, we we seated in a quiet little room upstairs by the wine celler. Our server was very attentive and every course we tried, was absolutely perfect. VERY Highly recommended!!
Don't Miss This One!. We ate here on the Saturday after Christmas, and the meal made the trip. This was def. the best of the best. The atmosphere is very holiday and romantic, and although there were families there, this is really a place for couples or smaller parties.The Veal Marcelle was out of this world as was the Cucumber Bisque with Salmon, specially ordered from the tasting menu. We received great service, but you could tell there was a lot of running around and the bigger party next to us was a little disappointed. The Bananas Foster was excellent, but because of the full house, they prepared it away from our table.
Fried everything!. I was quite disappointed by Emeril's restaurant. Most of the dishes are fried, including the vegetables. Not really what I had imagined. On the other hand, the wine list was extensive and excellent.
Another Notch. Who knew, a celebrity chef who not only really cooks on TV, but really can cook. Emeril's exceeded expectations in every way. I know it's cheesy, but I've got to say it: Bam!
Excellent. Pricey, but well worth it. I highly recommend this experience when in New Orleans. You cannot go wrong with anything on the menu. Come hungry and don't expect anything low cal, or low fat. Impecable service. Do this.
Do not look like a tourist!.
I've heard the way to distinguish locals from 'tourists' in a N.O. restaurant, is that locals wear jackets. Well, I chose to not pack one for the hot/humid forecast and because we were not planning to dine at one of the stuffier establishments (any Brennan's/Gallatoire's/Arnaud's).
Theres 3 separate DRs. (1) Main DR adjacent to the cozy piano bar, (2) Upstairs DR, and (3) loud 'sunroom' for the tourists, accessible only via the kitchen.
I was dressed professionally (though sans jacket), and we were seated in #3 initially, but requested to be moved because of a shaky table. We later heard that four couples had moved from that same table that day. What the @#$!?!
Reseated upstairs, it was a different experience. Food, service are top-notch.
FYI. Emeril's namesake restaurant provides a more modern menu, but was booked due to numerous Tulane/Loyola graduation dinners, (as was Commander's Palace). So reserve early!
Treated like a King or Queen. The service was prompt and outstanding! The food even overshadowed the service. By far the best I've ever eaten. A must to try. One draw back...it's not a establishment for children(McDonald's is better suited for them). If children must attend, then a roll of duct tape is a necessary.
Incredible edibles. The menu and wine list remind me of the "A" World Book Encyclopedia. They are that extensive. The service was without comparison, the wine was incredible and the Chef's Menu was fabulous. I can't wait to return!
Romantic getaway with plenty of attendan. Emeril Lagasse creates the perfect setting with such a knowledgeable and accommodating staff. His food is oustanding.
Simply, The Best. If you want to experience the best N.O. has to offer, go to Delmonico, and let the staff there guide you through the best meal you may ever have. We tried the chef's tasting menu paired with the wine and it was truly amazing. Every course was complex and intense, and it was perfectly paired to a wine. The service team was flawless. I wish I knew her name to compliment her. Just go, turn yourself over to their care, and you will be amazed!
