    The Empress Court restaurant is GONE FOREVER. Caesars is replacing it (some time in 2015) with a "Name Asian Chef" restaurant.

    This restaurant is beautiful. The positives end there!! In fairness, Our appetizer of minted duck wraps was good. My husband's general tso's chicken was adequate. My entree of honey glazed, walnut prawns was not eatable!! The " honey glaze" was pasty and lumpy in appearance and the flavor was unpleasant. The prawns were definitely old and mushy........at least the one bite I took before I had the waiter get it out of my sight. We ordered chicken fried rice which was of buffet quality. To make matters worse, the prawn entree remained on the bill. Shame on me for not demanding

    A very basic, basic Asian food restaurant, that has a fish tank in the front, and a nice chandelier and has taken absolutely no other steps whatsoever to do anything else to make this place special. Highly lit, austere surroundings and marginal food. Apparently Caesar's Palace has "four walled" this one, and only really cares about getting its monthly rent check.

    We came here as a family with our two children, ages 10 and 15, as a mother's day celebration. The food was wonderful. The wine list extensive, but overpriced (about 4 times avg retail value). The atmosphere was elegant, but relaxing (zen). The waiters did not rush to get us in and out, it was very peaceful. I would not recommend this restaurant for kids under the age of 8 only because of the type of dining and it does not have kid friendly menu options. Overall it was a great experience, I would go again.

    Las Vegas is full of great, trendy restaurants; most of which are noisy and crowded,because that motif is popular. This restaurant has a quiet elegance which is rare these days. The tables are set far apart and the service is noiseless.You can converse without shouting. The bonus is superb cuisine.

    Even during CES, this place is not that busy--but an excellent choice. Away from the normal crazy crowds, you get amazing Chinese food with white table cloth service. The focus appears to be Cantonese, but plenty of Szechuan choices. Particularly good is the hot and sour soup, Peking duck and Mongolian beef. Good range on the menu (including live stuff if you are up for it). Wine list is fine--inexpensive to crazy expensive. Annoying they do not have dates on less expensive choices, but still good choices. Staff is very well trained and very attentive. Ask for a table, the round booths while romantic, are not very comfortable.

    7:45 pm. reservation for booth on 1/1/14. Booth ready for us when arrived. Receptionist had big frown on her face. Unfriendly. Restaurant was busy but not real busy. Several tables in the area had leftover food and dishes just sitting there uncleaned for an hour. None of the servers seemed to care. Very slow service at our table. Servers did not come by to remove used dishes from our table after each course. We had to ask them to remove. Empress Court used to be one of our favorite places to eat. Food was good. IF we go back in the future, hopefully management will have corrected their receptionist and server problems.

    Really enjoyed our meal. I had the mangolian beef, really delicious. Hint of spice, meat was tender. Our server was nice, attentive. But very busy. My husband didn't have chop sticks and our server seemed very busy so I got a pair from a table next to ours. A few minutes later I was informed taking hotel property was against the law. I got accused of stealing chop sticks!! I explained the table was not properly set up, showed them the pair of chop sticks my husband was using and they apologized. We did speak to management and they agreed the situation was poorly handled. Other than that, the dinner was great.

    Dishes we ordered all tasted terrible. Sweet & Sour Pork had too much sauce and too sweet. Fresh water Goby fish was recommended deep fried, and the fish was over cooked. The Egg Plant dish came in clay pot. The eggplant was so soggy I could not have a second bite. We will not go back again.

    We hosted a dinner for clients and were extremely disappointed with the lack of service. It took 30 minutes to get drink orders and 90 minutes for the first of the food to arrive. We attend and exhibit at a conference every year at Caesars and we will never book this restaurant again to host a dinner for guests. By the way, the restaurant was not busy - only 3 other tables had diners - that may have been a clue.

    We really liked Empress Court, but for different reasons than most like restaurants in Vegas. We were on the fourth night of a conference and had been wined and dined and really just wanted a quiet lace with good food away from the bright lights, chef stars, fancy rich foods, etc. and Empress Court was the solution. Great respite.

    There is an elevator from the casino floor to the restaurant hidden away from the public. Tables were spaced and secluded. Very quiet. Decor was attractive. We had special dinner fixed price as we always tend to over Oder in Chinese restaurants. Food was very good as was the service. A little expensive but worth it.

    We ordered Peking Duck for two... They told us because of this, it would be prepared "table-side." Turns out they prepared it BEHIND OUR BACKS. We could not see it without turning around. It could have EASILY been prepared to our left or our right.... This was an extreme disappointment. It will be a long time before we return....

    While on vacation in Las Vegas, we found this gem in Caesar's Palace. It was so good, we went back another night during our stay. I highly recommend the Orange Peel beef. The ambience is very nice. They looked like they had a few private side rooms for larger parties. I will be going back on my next visit.
