Reservation Policies

Due to the large volume of requests for graduation reservations, a credit card number will be required for final confirmation. Your card will only be charged in the event of a no-show at a rate of $20 per person for dinner and $12 per person for lunch/brunch. If you need to cancel your reservation please call at least 24 hours in advance to avoid a no-show charge!

Please inform us of any changes to your party. After April 15 th we will not be able to increase party size or change reservation times. Our patio will be available for walk-ins on a first come/first serve basis. Reservations will not be made for the patio. We will do our best to accommodate requests but we cannot guarantee table location.

During graduation we offer a special menu for lunch and dinner. These menus are based on our regular menu and will be the only ones offered. Our brunch menu will be the same both days and offers a limited selection off of our regular Sunday brunch menu.

Parties of 18 or more will need to select one of our large party limited menus. If you have a smaller party but would still like a limited menu please ask at the time that you make your reservation.

To avoid misunderstandings, please request separate checks at the beginning of service. There is a $10 per bottle corking fee and a $10 cake fee for outside desserts. An 18% gratuity may be added to parties of 8 or more and will be printed on the receipt.

latin fusion in the heart of gainesville

A Tradition of Innovation

Emilianos offers a selection of paellas to please the most discerning tastes

In 1984 Emiliano's Cafe spearheaded downtown Gainesville's renaissance, ushering in a new era of patio cafes and culinary exploration in what has become Gainesville’s beautiful, dynamic entertainment district. Over the years terms like Nouveau Cuisine, Fusion Cuisine, Nuevo Latino, Latin Fusion or Pan Latin cuisine have come and gone. But what has remained constant throughout the years is our commitment to bringing a dazzling gastronomic experience to your evening and that has made us a landmark of Gainesville's restaurant scene.

At Emiliano's we bring the enticing world of Latin flavors right to your table. That's not all! We also offer a smart selection of beer and wine from the Latin Caribbean, Spain, and South America to perfectly complement your meal, and a full bar featuring our innovative fresh mojitos and creative martinis. Whether its lunch, brunch or dinner, we promise to make your visit memorable.
