The new Emeril resturant in the Sandestin development leaves nothing behind. Food, staff and the sparkling facility are simply impeccable!

Can’t recommend this at all. Over $100 for two (4 drinks included) with bad recommendations by the waitress and bartender. It just wasn’t good food. The squid ink pasta was nasty. It was obvious by what we left on our plates we didn’t like it...More

I've been 4 different times over a 3 month period. One visit was outstanding! However, two were only average and one was good. It's definitely worth trying, but be forewarned the experience isn't consistent yet. Either the food preparation or the service can be lacking.

Located at Grand Boulevard in Sandestin, Emeril's Coastal Italian is the first of Emeril’s Restaurants in Northwest Florida. Emeril's Coastal Italian combines the rich and diverse tradition of Italian cuisine with the bountiful variety of nearby fresh Gulf seafood and local ingredients. Chef de Cuisine, Shane Quinlan, will work closely with Chef Emeril to deliver a menu featuring Italian favorites like house made meatballs, Lasagna Bolognese and other house made pasta dishes and creative flatbreads as well as specialties straight from the Gulf. The design of the restaurant compliments the menu using an earthy mix of textures to create a casual, coastal feeling that is complete with elegant and sophisticated touches.
