Plan on at least an hour and a half to two hours. They take their time and its worth it.

You cannot judge a book by it's cover! The food was beyond excellent as well as the service! However, the place greatly needs a makeover inside and out! Put that aside and enjoy!

Make a reservation because it's a small cottage and it's absolutely delicious. It's a nice relaxing (not a get in, get out kind of a place) with VERY personal service. The whole family is great and the chef will come out to see how your meal tasted

The dinner was lovely and delicious. Note that the restaurant is family owned and run and has been in business for over 30 years. Just be prepared for paying the sales tax and tip at the end. Because the meal is expensive, the sales tax and tip add up. Some people have been taken surprise by that. Also be sure to allow for enough time to enjoy all the wonderful meal courses. Go when you have plenty of time available (I would say at least two hours).

We had a lovely experience with an extremely tasty meal. The Chateaubriand was tender "like butta." We would do it again.

From Our Editors

The Emerald Restaurant's quaint cottage, just minutes from Hill Country Galleria and Lake Travis, flings open its wooden doors to welcome diners into a fairy-tale-like milieu rich with Irish china, lace tablecloths, and fine crystal. Originally built as a private residence, The Emerald Restaurant has enjoyed 30 years as a community landmark under the ownership of the Kinsella family. Just like lunch in elementary school, most meals are presented on a silver platter, showcasing European-style and modern American cuisine including steaks, lobster, fish, and duck. The intimate space sets a romantic mood that frequently attracts wedding proposals and exchanges of everlasting-platonic-friendship rings.
