I am in love with this restaurant!!!
Everything is seafood and cajun and YUMMY!
If you can splurge then try to get in for the "Chef's Kitchen".
There is one booth in the kitchen and you basically eat whatever the chef brings you.
It is expensive but so memorable you will forget about your wallet.Recommended for:

My friend ordered the Calamari for appetizer, ( since i don't eat anything with a face,) the critics at my table came to the conclusion that Wolf Gang's serving that we had in the afternoon was WAY BETTER! They said that it had wayy too much batter and wasn't as fresh!
I was pleased to know that Emerils had a vegetarian option.
I ordered the gnocchi which to my surprised was one of the best gnocchi I've had in a long time! it was full of flavored and seasoned perfectly.
My gf ordered the Pasta Shrimp dish and she's one of those people that wouldn't bother the servers for anything, even if her dish was full of maggots, she would still have a big genuine smile on her face as the servers asked how do we like our dishes!
So after looking up from our plates and realizing how full her plate was compared to ours, my friends all tried a fork full of her dish and spat right out with class. The shrimp was extremely salty and the pasta was just odd. When one of our other friends mentioned it to the server, our server said she would let the chef know about the situation and that was that!
I would of given it more stars if the service was exceeded higher than my expectations but it was just mediocre and not too much on attn to detail - sad to say..i compared it to the lunch i had at Wolf Gang Puck that afternoon ..and Wolf gang actually did a lot better job with service and Food!

Emeril's is my favorite place for a upscale dinner in Las Vegas. I always get the chef's tasting menu paired with the sommelier's wine flight. It's pricey, ~$150/person with the wine but well worth it!. On my most recent trip to Emeril's, my boyfriend and I were celebrating my birthday and our chef tasting menu was as follows:
1st couse - Stone Crab Claw Salad with shaved apples, honey-glazed marcona almonds and butter lettuce topped with machengo cheese - this was one of our favorite courses, the crab was so fresh! Paired wine was a nice, dry champagne from France
2nd course - Lobster Pappardelle Pasta with fresh mushrooms - so rich and delicious, I shouldn't have eaten so much and saved more room for later! Paired wine was Pinot Grigio, cut through the richness of the pasta very nicely
3rd course - Pan-Roasted Black Bass in basil pesto with a Sicilian capitone sauce and crispy pancetta - loved this dish too! Paired wine was a white blend of viognier, grenache, marsanne and rousanne from Paso Robles, this was divine
4th course - Cornmeal-crusted fried quail and corn hash, our least favorite, a bit too gamey for us. But the paired wine was Pinor Noir, my favorite, yum :)
5th course - Cedar Plank Campfire Rib-Eye with with Louisiana-style shrimp etouffee and an andouille pork sausage - this was SO good but I was so full by this point that I couldn't finish. All 3 components were awesome and the etouffee sauce on the rib-eye was excellent! Paired wine was Cab Sav, so full-bodied and luscious
6th course - New Orleans-style bread and butter bread pudding - to die for! I was so full but this tasted so good I had to finish it. Paired wine was Moscato di Asti, not too sweet and the bubbles were quite lovely
The service is impeccable. We had two waiters who both new the food and wine backwards and forwards!
If you're in Vegas and want to spend some dough on dinner, head over to the MGM Grand, Emeril's does not disappoint!Recommended for:
