I went to this restaurant because I wanted dim sum because I heard that is what it is known for. We got their too late, so we ordered from the regular menu. I thought the food was way over priced, but still good. I don't think i would go back unless it was to eat dim sum. The service was good as well.

their dimsum is good. their price isnt bad either. i like how the girls that seat you are dressed in the chinese dresses. their service is pretty good, but it can be hard to get a hold of the carts that bring dimsum around depending on where your table is.

I love Emerald. They have the best dim sum selection and everything they serve is delicious. Lunch starts at 11am and since it's very popular, I would suggest getting there as close to 11am as possible. They serve the usualy dim sum fare and then some. As a Chinese, whenever I feel homesick for Chinese food, Emerald's my delicious pick me up. Prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is upscale Chinese.

I think this place has possibly the best dim sum in San Diego, however the lines may be long on the weekends. If you go for dim sum, make sure you go earlier in the day so that you have more selection to choose from. The food tastes good and better than other dim sum places, however the price is a little steeper than others. I would recommend this place if you can wake up early on the weekends. They have decent service and the restaurant is fairly clean.

This is one of best restaurants in town in any restaurant category. The service could be better, however, the food could not get much better. Anyone that says anything different has no clue about food.

This was the worst food and service I have ever had. They bombard you with their trays they push around and they just start giving you food you didn't even ask for. We had to consitantly tell them no thank you, some of them even sounded offended when you rejected their food. The food had either no flavor or too much flavor. Then we ordered a couple of things off the menu that were uterlly disgusting. We always had to track somone down to get us water, silverwear, sugar, our bill etc.... and they were not friendly when they finally came over. They acted like we were putting them off. I would not say we are picky and even one of us works in a restuarant so we have patience but this place was just crazy!

Dim-Sum at Emerald Chinese is simply the best. We are new to San Diego and getting to know the best eat joints. Dim-Sum is our passion. I think our search has ended with discovering Emerald Chinese. We visited this joint on a Thursday about Noon. The service, ambiance were great. Variety of flavors exploded in our mouths as we tried seven different items. We have been warned that the weekends are very-very busy but are looking forward to retuning to this fine establishment and strongly recommend it.

We go on Sundays at 11am, any earlier and you will have to wait for some of the good stuff on the carts. If you don't see what you want on the carts, tell the waiter what you want. You will get it! The place starts getting crowded after noon, we NEVER have a wait at 11am. There is also a terrific duck and turtle pond in the back. Gorgeous! I look forward to a walk around the pond after stuffing myself with dim sum.

Pros: Fast service, great pond in the back.

Cons: There is a brief window to avoid the huge Sunday crowd, and to get full carts.

Food seems okay, but service was awful. The servers were very rushed and ignored most of our requests. We ordered six plates, which they brought out - one every twenty minutes or so. They brought no waters and offered no refills on the drinks that we had. They are supposed to bring a small dessert after, but brought nothing. As we left, we noticed most of the servers sitting around a little table.

I felt more like a nuisance than a customer. I tipped 10%, but wished I lefted nothing.
