Emeril's Orlando at Universal CityWalk
Hours of Operation
Fri - Sat: 11:30 am - 11:00 pm
Emeril’s Orlando at Universal CityWalk is located at the epicenter of CityWalk. The free-standing, two-story restaurant boasts an open kitchen, chef’s food bar, private dining, Kitchen Table experience, and “new” New Orleans cuisine.
Lunch is offered daily from 11:30 a.m.-3 p.m. and includes starters such as New Orleans Barbecue Shrimp and Duck Confit Tacos, along with salads, burgers, sandwiches, wood-oven pizzas, fish, steak, chicken, pork loin, and more. For those in a rush, Emeril’s offers a three-course $22 Lunch Crunch menu.
The restaurant closes from 3-5 p.m. daily, and then reopens for dinner. The dinner menu features many of the same appetizers, but also has other favorites, like Chicken + Andouille Gumbo and Smoked Wild and Exotic Mushrooms. Dinner entreés include a large selection of steaks, chops, poultry, fish and shellfish dishes, as well as a creative vegetable plate of the day for those who do not eat meat. Sides include sautéed jumbo asparagus, bourbon mashed sweet potatoes, four cheese macaroni and more. For dessert, try a homemade gelatin or sorbet, Emeril’s banana cream pie, vanilla bean creme brûlée, or one of the other sweet endings.
There is a full-liquor bar; however, Emeril’s is really know for its wine selection and 10,000-bottle wine gallery. Happy Hour is daily from 5-8 p.m. and includes half-priced well cocktails and beers, $5 glasses of wine, $6 specialty cocktails, and a selection of small plates.
The restaurant is high-energy with a creative environment, including 30-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, stone walls and an iron staircase that lends the feel of an industrial warehouse loft. At the center of the food studio is an open kitchen and chef’s food bar, where guests can watch chefs at work.
The second floor offers two private party rooms, the wine gallery, and an intimate chef’s tasting room that seats eight.
Business casual attire is recommended, and men are asked to please not wear sleeveless shirts. Reservations are highly recommended; however, walk-ins are accepted.
Parking is available in the Universal Orlando Resort garage. Emeril's Orlando offers complimentary valet parking during lunch, up to two hours. Regular parking is $16 and preferred is $22; valet is also available. Florida residents park free after 6 p.m. with valid I.D.
Emeril's is located on the lower level, near the fountains and stage at the center of Universal CityWalk.
