 The Emerald is a true Austin gem. Nestled away just West of Bee Cave right on Hiway 71, The Emerald provided my wife and I with a great dining experience once again. We held our table all night, talking and enjoying the food, wine, and each other. Truly a night to remember. The soups, entrees, wine, and desserts were all great. Traditional is an understatement. My time in Ireland was not that Irish! Very hearty portions, we always walk away with huge sets of leftovers to graze on for the next day.

 Funny I just read the only review on this place and I had the COMPLETE opposite experience. I have no idea how anyone could think the food was not good. If you want an incredible Irish meal, go here! Yes, the place was fairly empty, only a couple other people which made it quite romantic actually. Every bit of the house is covered in shamrocks and lace. How can you get any more Irish than that in Austin? The Irish family that owns the place is really really friendly. We ordered the dinner for two which I would highly recommend. It included Irish soda breads (yummy), rack of lamb, lobster tails, steak, wonderful sides, and dessert. The presentation was beautiful, and had an incredible attention to detail. Just make sure you come hungry because it was a ton of food! The rack of lamb with mint jelly was AMAZING!! Our favorite. The sauces were to die for also, all homemade. It is very expensive, but if you go for a special dinner, it is totally worth it. I have absolutely no complaints except that I was stuffed :)

 Nooks and crannies make up this place there is no doubt! One big maze. Perfect for a passed out drunk to be hidden for long enough to sleep it off and NOT be detected. I vote this as the number spot to have a Christmas Party.!!!! The food was perfect ...
