Emi is awesome! – We recently had Sunday brunch at Emi, and let me tell you- it is worth every penny! It was double the price of Cebu, but 1,000 times better. You pay for quality. We were seated promptly in the backyard greenhouse, which was nice. We were served promptly and attentively (which I really appreciate). I had this fantastic grilled shrimp appetizer that I am still thinking about (it came with mango). Main course- eggs benedict, and probably the best I've had; this came with yummy little potato wedges that were delicious. The waffles are fantastic too. My cheesecake dessert was just heavenly. I can recommend Emi without reservation- we will definitely be back! Kudos to all!
Not worth it... – Nice atmosphere and prompt seating. The staff was not as friendly as I expected and the outdoor patio was not a great as the "outdated recommendations" described it. The food was decent but not good enough to go back. Overall, considering the price, you can spend a little bit more in the same area and get alot more back.
In all, if you are looking for a place with good food, this is not it.
Truly a very special find – An absolutely spectacular experience overall. The food is simple but delicious, the staff is attentive, kind and very helpful, and the prices are unbeatable--two could eat here, with wine and dessert, for well under $100 easily. Go for the outdoor patio if you can get it, or the climate-controlled greenhouse if that's not an option--the bar area tends to be a little loud. This is genuinely a great spot in Bay Ridge and we're very lucky to have them.
The chef is a gem! – A little piece of heaven tucked away on 3rd Aveue. This is what Bay Ridge has been missing. The food in Emi is always perfect. Whether you eat dinner or brunch you will not be dissapointed. MY hat off to the chef and his staff!
Awesome with a capital "A" – I went for dinner with my girl and had a great time. The food service and drinks were on the money. These guys do not skimp on drinks or quality of food. Fantastic!
I tried the brunch on Sunday. wow! The best mimosa I ever had. Fodd was just as good. The French toast was perfect. The best part about it was enjoying my brunch outside. For a few minutes I escaped from the New Yprk fast life and enjoyed the the beautiful weather. trust me go there
Must Try – Came here for Mother's Day brunch and was extremely pleased. We sat out back in the "garden area" - the service was wonderful - our mimosas never went empty - and the food was delicious. This was our first time to Emi and would highly recommend this restaurant for brunch in Bay Ridge!
Editorial Review – Bay Ridge Italian restaurant features outdoor garden seating, homemade desserts, happy hour, brunch and prix-fixe menus.
a Bay Ridge secret – I am so excited to learn about this new restaurant in the neighborhood. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was friendly and attentive. A dinner for two that included a shared appetizer, two entrees, two glasses of wine and coffee with a shared dessert cost $92. A bit pricey compared to some of it's neighboring restaurants but worth a visit, at least once.

One of the in Bay Ridge !!! – My wife and I have visited Emi's on numerous occasions and we have never been disappointed. From casual dinning, to a romantic dinner to just a cocktail at the bar, Emi's takes it to a different level. The Food is incredible, Service is above and beyond, and atmosphere is one of the best in Bay Ridge. This is one place I highly recommend.
