Always a TreatTHe food here is always good- very pricey but good. Music could be less clubby during the week. Weekends tend to be very young and club like. Food trumps the waitstaff. Drinks are small , weak and overpriced.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat first time!Really great first time experience. Service was great, food was delicious! Large portion sizes, had plenty of good to take home with us. Looks like a great place for just drinks too, lounge was energetic and the music was good. We will be back!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother fantastic dining experienceThis is my third time at Empire, and I love it everytime I go there. I love the ambience and the food. The service was fantastic as well. One of the best restaurants in town!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMLas VegasWe visited the restaurant for the first time Friday night using a voucher from Eversave.

We will definitely return!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Empire!I've traveled all around the world and been to all sorts of different restaurants.

The food is wonderful and the service is outstanding.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMPoppin Bottles!Been to Empire a few times and this establishment is really finding it's clientele . It's turning out to be a great mix of young and seasoned professionals coming together to have a great time. Empire has added a DJ in the lounge and the music was great. (Don't know the name of the DJ, but she kept the energy level high.
The food, amazing, we were out for my Wife's 30th b-day in the restaurant and then moved to the lounge. The GMs helped us make it a memorable evening, and our waiters were attentive and catered to our reasonable requests. Overall a great night, we'll be back, and looking forward to it!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMYummmForget out servers name but he was pretty good, the one thing I hated is that we were very hungry when we got there and the server had to explain at least 10 of the items on the menu, meaning he read each one and explained them, its like hello I can deal with 2 or 3 but not 10 of them. We were sitting there for at least 5 or 6 minutes just listening to him. Then he mest up our orders twice, but we still liked him, and he comped us a free dessert for his mistake. We went there when the bruins were playing thier last game against NY and they had a large screen that came down in the lounge, it was very nice. The food was really really good.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMExtremely satisfied!Came here for the first time to celebrate my wedding anniversary. I got a call to confirm my reservations. I was asked if it was a special occasion and I said "yes, it is my anniversary". The girl over the phone asked me if I would like a couple glasses of champagne sent to my table upon arrival or a special desert. I opted for the champagne. I figured why not-it is a special occasion. We arrived and were seated promptly and given out menus. Just when my wife was going to ask what we are going to have for drinks, the champagne arrived along with a "Happy Anniversary". The wife was impressed. Our waiter was excellent, the staff was excellent, and the food was amazing! BTW- the champagne was on the house. Thank you Empire. Will come again.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMfood and overall evaluationlobster rangoon and sushis are amazing. it's a bit pricey but really fancy and cool place with great food.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMEmpireGreat energy food ambiance and location. Great for drinks or dinner. Will be back again!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Seaport RestaurantI thought this restaurant was great, the ambience is outstanding. The service was exceptional as well. I thought the food was good, but not the best Asian food that I have had, but the restaurant itself is a really fun place to bring friends and family.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for Picky Immigrant FatherMy Dad is ridiculously picky about food, especially Asian cuisine. He loved the calamari, house fried rice, and Miso chicken. Home run!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerTook my wife for our 27 year anniversary to try something new.
This ambiance was great. Feels very current and "hip".
Food was very good - The service was off the charts - good.
the server gave us a sampling of desserts for our anniversary - they were outstanding.
Dont eat there without sampling some of the desserts.
Made for a great night,
Tony5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely!It is a beautiful restaurant. The service was attentive. They were accommodating to our needs. Our portion was small while others were large. Some dishes were good and some were bland. Overall we liked it and would go back.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe portions are large andThe portions are large and every dish was well prepared with lots of flavor. Our favorites by far were the calamari (aromatic with the perfect touch of sea salt and a kick of spice) and the lobster sushi roll. The waiters were helpful with recommendations, incredibly friendly and attentive.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExellent experienceTremendous dining experience. Fantastic food and presentation, elegant decor and superb service. One of the best meals I have had in a long time.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMy new favorite spot!!Best Calamari EVER!!!You cannot go wrong on sushi options either. I discovered this place a while ago with my boyfriend and we now set aside a night almost every weekend to go here. The only thing I would say that is negative is that the reservations process seems a bit non productive as even if you have a reservation, you are still in line outside. Granted I have never waited extremely long; it just seems silly to make a reservation and then show up and have to wait in line.Oh well...I LOVE THIS PLACE !!! Well worth any wait.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat night at EmpireSome things are very pricey but the food I had was worth it. The steak my husband got was only OK, so for $38 I wouldnt necessarily reccoment it. The potstickers, lobster cupcakes, calamari and sushi were all top notch. Loved the rocking shrimp roll and I normally only get raw sushi. The spicy tuna was great too.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMy teens loved the food andMy teens loved the food and the atmosphere. Our food was very good, and served very promptly. Service staff were excellent. We will definitely return.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food and very goodWonderful food and very good service. A bit too loud for the "senior set." However, we would return on a less hectic evening.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat surpriseWhat a great surprise - to find really good food in a clubby atmosphere. I feel sorry for the servers having to wear incredibly revealing tops, but our waitress was friendly, patient, and really professional.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent and portionsFood was excellent and portions were incredible. Staff was attentive and offered good suggestions. The interior design of the building, open kitchen, and luxurious lounge area were all very intriguing.
Both food and beverages are a little pricey, but a great spot for a fun night out or special dinner. Appropriate for business clientele/client dinners in the early evening hours.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and ambiance wereThe food and ambiance were great. The only downfall in my opinion is that it's slightly overpriced. Otherwise, we loved out meals and enjoyed our time at Empire!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMone word: EPIC! Food - Excellent,one word: EPIC!

We will certainly be back again.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat sushiProbably some of the best sushi I've had. The host was rude, but otherwise the staff was really nice and we had a fun time. Prices aren't outrageous either.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently excellent all aroundI've been to Empire several times for dinner now and every time we've been impressed with the quality and flavor of the food. Excellent drinks as well. Overall, this is one of our favorite restaurants in the neighborhood. This time we were seated far back into the restaurant which is much quieter and private than the area near the sushi bar (or main bar). This was perfect for my fiance and I, but definitely a very different atmosphere and dining experience than our prior trips when we sat near the sushi bar/bar. If you're looking for a night out on the "scene" and want to people watch, make sure to request a table in the main area.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMCreative and delicious. DiverseCreative and delicious. Diverse menu which may be intimidating for meophyte diners but great for the adventurous. Wait staff is great and very helpful. decor is spectacular. The star anise donuts were delicious like a souffle bite BUT watch out for extremely hot center.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious lobster cupcakes!We absolutely loved empire. We had bought a deal from travelzoo so was the original reason we were visiting for the first time. Lobster cupcakes are probably one of the best foods we've ever had! Our sushi, and noodle dish were delicious as well. We even received a free appetizer for being first time guests which was a great touch. A great cocktail beer and wine list - we loved the geisha cocktail and peach Mai tai. Our server was excellent along with all the staff. Decor and ambiance were also impressive. We will be definitely visiting empire again- sooner than later!4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMLoveeee every thing...I willLoveeee every thing...I will defenaly come back!!!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat serviceBoys night was great, server was unbelievable.

Attentive service, excellent cocktail selection. Celebrated a Birthday and found the atmosphere and setting to be ideal for special events. We ended up putting a number of hot & cold appetizers together with a "share" bowl of Lo Mein w/chicken, and couldn't have been more pleased. Didn't have room for dessert. Will definitely go back again!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious! Wonderful foodDelicious! Wonderful food presentation, very attentive service. Observed groups of younger adults (20-30yrs.).

Prices a little high, but you really get what you pay for. The portions were reasonable to large, and you will not leave hungry, if you bring some money. The drinks are delicious but the price could come down a couple dollars. The service was even better. Our waiter was on top of his game and was very polite and accommodating. I would highly recommend anyone try this new place. Plus it is easy to get to.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome service and amazingAwesome service and amazing food. A bit pricey though.3/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
