A great experience from start to finish.
From the bar tender to the people who sat us, to our waiters, everyone was friendly, helpful, courteous and efficient.
We started off with a fantastic cheese plate. Interesting flavors and aromas. Something different and special.
Gumbo was very flavorful.
My fish was light and flavorful, spicy yet not excessively, which is often a difficult balancing act.
My wife loved her filet, and the desserts - a bread pudding and a cake were just great.
An excellent experience. In a town full of fantastic restaurants, this is one we will return to.
Great job, Emeril!
Had dinner with 6 other friends one night. Food is over priced and over rated. The shank was under salted and bland. The grits and shrimp had a spicy bar b q sauce that took away from the light flavor of the grits and shrimp. Dinner came to over one hundred dollars per couple, without desert, why too much for what we had.
If you want a fancy show of plating and serving your food, then go. If you want a good meal and fun atmosphere ,don t.
Went for lunch on a Jan. 19, around one. Hostess was aloof, bordering on unfriendly, the waiter was indifferent, the food was blah, and the service was horrible, with the exception of the bus people. Got our food before the wine menu, which we had already asked for twice. We used to love this place.......what happened?
a bit worried it might be overhyped...boy was I wrong. The food and service were 5 star from start to finish. tried 6 starters between 3 of us and each had an entree--try the red fish, or the crab cakes, or the pork chops, or the shrimp....you can not go wrong!
Walking distance from the heart of bourbon street, canal, etc.
I took my sister on a surprise trip to NO for her 50th birthday that culminated in a fantastic meal at NOLA. The appetizers were very good--I had a mostly crab-crabcake, she had a fabulous salad but the best part of the meals were the entrees. Her shrimp and grits rated at one of the top meals she had ever eaten, and my tenderloin was terrific. Dessert was a homey gingerbread muffin with carmel sugar and it was good the next day, as I was too full to eat it that night. A memorable evening. Highly recommend this place--and Travis, our waiter, was a hoot.
We were 6pm walk-ins so the kitchen wasn't slammed. The ambiance and restaurant are very nice. The usual fine dining with people walking in with shorts and go cups scene. Our waiter was good but the support staff was terrible. They didn't clear the dishes and the food runner toppled and slid my food across my plate when he slammed it down in front of me. We liked the apps. Miriam had a ceasar and I had the fried duck livers with greens, both were terrific. The entrees failed terribly. I ordered the garlic crusted drum. It was soggy and greasy. I noticed food sitting under domes on their line forever. Very poor execution of a cleaver dish as it was served over mushrooms, bacon, potatoes and green beans (skimpy). Miriam had the fish of the day and it was ok but underseasoned to be sure and a real snore. The pesto was more like mowed lawn. Both fishes were cooked perfectly. They bought our drum dish because I protested it a bit. For desert we had banana layer cake and chocolate bread pudding. Skip them. The banana layer cake was ok but the chocolate bread pudding wasn't good at all. I would not bother with this restaurant until they step it up a bit.
We ate at Nola on Sunday Dec 13. We had been happily anticipating
this lunch and had our reservations for a week. Our party of four
was not impressed. The wait staff was good but the food was only
ok. We can cook better fish at home. We had garlic crusted drum
with tomato/mozarello salad. Only barely ok. Desserts were not
over top . We expected more from Emeril. Also bathroom area
was not clean.
We will not recomend Nola but instead think K-Pauls is far superior
quality food and staff for around the same price
i havent eaten a his resturants but ive bought his cesar salad dressing. it sucks. we throught away our salads and the whole new bottle of emerials ceasar dressing. look at the reviews, they look like paid employes rating his resturants, lol.
