Loved this restaurant.... the atmosphere was beautiful, the service is friendly, the food is very tasty, not to mention the dessert selection.. yummy!! We went here for my parent's anniversary and they gave them two assorted dishes of their desserts on the house. One word - Amazing! Downside is that it's a little pricey, but great for special occassions.

You simply have to try this restaurant. Just had dinner here last night after 2 weeks touring all the finest rest. in Aspen CO. Short story, there is no better restaurant - bar none. Chef Greg Richie's brought many of the exquisite Asian - Pacific fusion flavors he developed and made famous at Roy's rest, and turned it up a notch. Phenomenal apps. and a very different salad, but the kicker is the grouper entree. Perfectly cooked fish with a sweet, yet subtle flavor. Also, not normally desert people, but decided to try the home made sorbets. Incredible, light and satisfying! If you want a dinner experience that sets the bar above all the other restaurants, this is it. Service was also right on, which can sometimes be missing in Orlando.

My husband and I decided that this was the perfect place as a Christmas present for our family of 8. Emeril?s reputation and great restaurants made it an easy pick for us. The service was very poor, even when two waitresses were helping our party. The restaurant was not full that evening and two of the items that we ask for never got to our table. The restrooms were a disaster. I don?t know how a manager can?t take care of such a small detail that makes such a big statement of a place. We left the restaurant very disappointed. The WOW effect that we were waiting for was a negative one.

Beautiful restaurant with a very zen feel to it. The cantaloupe martinis were quite different and delicious. Food choices are a lot different than the other Emeril's restaurants. This menu has a Polynesian flare. Loved it!

My husband (who is a chef) and I dined here last night, and I felt compelled to write a review so other people don't make the same mistake we did. We each ordered the chef's tasting menu, which is a four-course meal for $54 apiece. The food definitely left something to be desired; we were especially disappointed in the dessert, which certainly ended our meal on a bad note: cookies and a scoop of chocolate ice cream.....not the sophisticated ending to a meal I would expect out of a restaurant that is supposedly 5 stars; more like something I would expect for a five-year old at Denny's. Even the drinks were a joke: The $11 Green Tea Mojitos were small and tasted like kool-aid. So, save yourself the $170 that we wish we had, and go eat elsewhere.

Well, I have to say I research and try to find some of the best places to eat utilizing the City Search guide regularly being a traveler and the reviews of Tchoup Chop made me feel a little uneasy. We got the the restaraunt about an hour before our reservations so we could have a cocktail at the bar and take in the atmosphere. The bartender recomended some drinks for us that we tried, I had the Saki and Pam had the wine both of which were great selections. From there we were seated within a half hour and from the three waiters who took care of us (Ali, Billy and Jeff) the experience was extrodinary, the food impecable, the management was attentive along with extremely professional helping out throughout the restaraunt, what a hands on guy Jeff was! Needless to say everything from the lobster crusted pork medalions to the vine ripe tomatoe salad to the wok fried duck and the roasted chicken to the blue mountain espresso made me think I was in heaven. Recomendation, are you kidding me, if you have not been here, make it a point or a destination, I PROMISE you won't be disapointed! Michael

Pros: From parking to dinner everything was perfect!

Cons: I can't think of anything to critisize about this wonderful establishment

.

I wish I read these reviews before we went. Someone must have paid others to give them 5 stars. We went there with our employees for our Xmas dinner and it was HORRIBLE! The guy in a suit (manager, I suppose) had us follow him, but instead of taking us to our table, lead us in, and then turned around and pointed that our table was " back there" -- I guess I should've known that we were supposed to know where our table was! That is when I should have known that this was going to be a horrible experience. Our server kept rolling her eyes at us everytime we asked a question. We told her there was something in our waters and she told us it was just tea leaves. What are tea leaves doing floating in water glasses? Service took forever, food came out cold and pretty salty, and the staff definitely did not care. I guess I wouldn't care much either since 20% gratuity was already added on a $500 tab. There are so many better places in Orlando to eat...then to waste your money and time here!!! This place needs to be shopped so that upper management knows how bad it really is. I suppose most of their business is from tourists and conventions--people who probably won't come back on their own and don't really complain. Or maybe Tchoup Chop doesn't really care because they make their money anyways!!!

Pros: Decor

Cons: Everything else-service, food, drinks

The good news.... the service was seemless from the pre dinner drink at the bar through the entire meal. The bad news... the food, for the money, just wasn't all that great. We are locals and seldom venture out into bowels of tourist world (for all the obviouis reasons) but chose to do the Blue Man Group and endulge ourselves in a good meal prior to the show for an anniversay outing. Again, the staff was great but sadly, they were the only highlight of the night. The drinks were were (their version of the Pina Colada (sp?) but I couldn't detect the faintest whiff of the prerequiste rum. Expensive too. (Could have bought two six packs of Dead Guy Ale for the price, but I digress)... The ball and chain ordered up their New York Strip Steak which was pretty good and tender, and there was plenty of it... in fact, in fairness, the steak was above averate as were the potatoes, onion rings, and tidbits that came with it. Since I have a close connection to Hawaii the dinner (sampler) plate caught my attention... let's see, ribs, chicken, a pork and noodle concoction, a diced potatoe dish with a fancy name and some other green vegie... honestly, it sucked. The food come have come from a Golden Corral. Simpy put... for over a 100 bucks I expected more. There are many, many better places in Orlando to eat... the cost vs. benefit based of last night's experience was dismal. Emeril should do himself a favor and disassociate his good name with this outpost. Oh, the Blue Man Group was... in a word, different. Definately worth the ride but you are going to have a hard time explaining it to your friends.

Pros: Great service and ambiance

Cons: Weak, overpriced drinks and the food just simply isn't all that great

Pretentious service-not in a good way> Pushy servers and bartender who badmouthed the restaurant as soon as we walked in. Had the prix fixe meal, and lucky I did. At least this was a half portion of sub-par food. Added the lobster miso soup to my choice. There were tiny shreds of overcooked lobster meat in an overly smoky mushroom broth. This tastes nothing like miso and I only wish it tasted as good as the $1.95 soup I get at my local sushi bar. I had the tomato salad which was small but good. Had the bouillabase as my entree. It was served with overcooked clams, mussels, and tiny rubber like bay scallops. I ordered the coconut creme brulee for dessert. It tasted more like a dollop of cool whip with some dried coconut flakes. Either Emeril should be ashamed, or we should, for thinking this place is worth spending any money at. If you are looking to spend money at a Resort, visit the Hyatt Grand Cypress. What is Loews thinking?

We went there last night with our best friends. Needless to say we were more than a little dissappointed. There is a special in September called "The Magical Dining Month" where local restaurants offer a prix fixe menu consisting of an appetizer or salad, entree, and desert for $29.00pp plus tax and gratuity. While there are some stellar restaurants that participate in the program (Le Coq au Vin for one), most are in hotels that cater only to the tourist market. Tchoup Chop is such an example. I understand that this is in a hotel so prices are going to be higher but $15.00 for a martini is a little over the top (and the glass wasn't even half full).Now for the meal. I ordered the dumpling appetizer and my companion had the crispy shrimp in lettuce leaves. While somewhat tasty I can't see spending $9.00 for two little dumplings. Three half cooked shrimp on lettuce is not worth the price either. For our entrees we ordered the NY strip steak and the bouillabase. The steak was cooked completely wrong (as noted by other reviewers). The bouillabase consisted of two small shrimp, two fishy tasting mussels, two clams, a 2"x2" piece of fried fish, a few soba noodles and a broth that was 1% water and 99% salt. Don't get me wrong I like my salt, but it literally tasted like ocean water. Everyone at our table agreed that it was truly inedible. Typically when the food at a restaurant is this bad we just don't go back but considering the meal for 4 of us cost almost $300 I decided to quietly walk up and talk to a manager. He told me that had we mentioned it when our entrees arrived they would have done something about it, but since we were into our deserts (after they took away our not even half eaten entrees) there was nothing he could do.
Bottom line: If you want to dine in a beautiful, overpriced restaurant with awful food then this is the place for you. Consider yourself warned.

I ate here this past weekend when I was in town with my fiancee his employee and his wife for a convention. Not only did we all have stomach aches after we ate here but I was sick all night and haven't been that sick in a long time!! Not only was I sick but the food was absolutly horrible! My duck was fatty and raw! You would think that with Emeril having such a reputation for himself that he would check on his restaurants!

First of all, we went at lunch time when it wasn't busy at all (there were only 2 tables occupied - ours being one of them). The service was excellent from start to finish (including being very jovial with the kids). The food was very good and moderately portioned. I felt like the lunch prices were a bit steep, but we sort of expected that. If it weren't for the prices, we would definitely go back.

Now, the bad...
My son ordered his steak rare. It arrived medium rare (at best). I sent it back and a couple minutes later the waiter came back (with the steak cut in two) and said that the cook said that it was rare and that we just hadn't cut deep enough into the meat. This was absolutely false. The meat was not rare at all. It was medium rare to medium. I gave up the fight and said okay. Truthfully, I should have asked for a manager and I regret not having done so (especially for the price that we paid for that steak). By the way, I ordered my steak medium rare, and it arrived medium.

At any rate, for someone like me who can't afford such extravagances very often, I seriously doubt I'll ever go back. To me it wasn't worth the $150 (for lunch) that I "dished" out. I'm only giving a 7 rating for three reasons: high prices for lunch, a steak not cooked to order, and the problem not being properly addressed. Otherwise, the score would have been 9 or 10.

This restaurant is hard to find? if you self-park?which I won?t recommend. Literally walking 10 miles before passing through what seemed like an eternity clad banquet or hallway; we finally made it to the entrance of the place. What a beautiful restaurant so peaceful yet uninviting. The stark and cold restaurant is barely lit by the kitchen and the seating arrangement feels like organized chaos. The disheveled staff aligns the back of the wall almost fighting to leap at you in anticipation of them replenishing your glass or to remove plates. When there is nothing for the wait staff to do, they wander aimlessly and confused. The food was strange! To me, the offerings at the start of the meal selection were hard to describe except that when placed on your tongue, they pop loudly in your mouth. I did not like my dish, it was too unorthodox with over embellished flavors. However, my sister is more ethnically diverse when it comes to cultural food and she absolutely loved it. It was her birthday celebration and the chef was nice enough to give her a dessert on the house which was classy. I think the restaurant menu, drinks, and wait staff ? need a serious overhaul.

My husband and I went to the Tchoup chop on October 5th for our 10 year anniversay.We almost didnt go after reading the reviews on this page but boy am i glad i didnt let someone elses judgement make my decision for me. By far this was the BEST meal i have ever had. The wait staff was spectacular and not pushy at all. The cook even sent out a special appetizer to congratulate us. Thank you all at Emerils for the most amazing night.

I hate to sound like a whiny food critic, but the service here was actually too good. We had 2 waiters and 2 servers. They often kept asking us the same things over and over. After a while, it was like, "Enough already. Leave us alone." That aside, the entire experience was amazing. The food was superb and yes, it was expensive. You definitely pay for the service here. They also have a great selection of Sake. The design of the room is breathtaking. Whoever did the design concept of the restaurant should get an Oscar. If you're on vacation in Orlando and want to splurge on someone special, take them here. But, make sure to call ahead a couple weeks and make a reservation.

We had gone to Emeril's at Citywalk so we were expecting great food... what we got was very dissappointing. The food was overspiced and way overpriced. I can't believe Emeril puts his name on this place. The meat and fish didn't even seem to be quality, I could've gotten better at the grocery store. There are hundreds of better restaurants in Orlando, and you won't have to shell out $100.

Food was good. Pork chop was the servers recommendation but it was very sweet. Dessert was very good. Overall food was good. Good to go atleast once to try it out.

Our waiter was very pushy at persuading my fiance and I to order the more expensive items on the menu because business was 'slow' for them being off-season at the time. He kept pushing for us to order not just one, but TWO appetizers with the reason being that the appetizers are VERY small. For my entree, I was planning on ordering a steamed banana leaf wrapped fish and out waiter kept insisting that that entree was very 'plain' and kept insisting that I get the special for the day- grilled Ono fish. After finally giving in since he obviously would not back down- I regreted going with his recommendation after biting into the fish once I got it. It was the worst fish I've ever tasted being so dried out. That was the worst $90 meal I've ever had!

Our waiter was very pushy at persuading my fiance and I to order the more expensive items on the menu because business was 'slow' for them being off-season at the time.

Pros: Atmosphere, Location

Cons: Food, Price, Waiter

Unfortunately Tchop Chop was not what I expected. I've been to Emerils many times and I must say I was very disappointed by the food at Tchop Chop. Our food was very bland and cold. I had the Lemongrass Sea Bass with Seafood Rice for $24. The vegetables in the rice tasted like can vegetables and the fish like it had been frozen for a year. I would definitely not go back, and if I had to go back I would stick with the drinks and the wonton strips with peanut sauce. The place is beautiful, but the food sucks.

Absolutely the best dining experience I have ever had. The food, atmosphere and service even exceeded my already high expectations. The Tchoup Chop salad was excellent as was the soup of the day. The "Clay pot of the day" entree was good, but there are much better entrees on the menu. Everything on the menu sounded great. The most impressive part about dinner was the service. Anyone visiting Orlando should definitely make time to eat here. Its expensive, but worth every penny, and then some.
