Excellent food with superb service. Prices were reasonable for a steak restaurant in midtown Manhattan.
Waiter was FANTASTIC! Had great recommendations! Food was delicious and staff was on point!
Great service, excellent food. Frank the waiter was absolutely fantastic. Management takes pride in service and satisfaction. Very impressive establishment
Love, Love this place. Excellent food. Definitely would go back.
Het was heerlijk en de service was goed. Prijslijst op TripAdvisor was van de bar. Restaurant was een stuk duurder.
Steak was cooked to perfection. Service very nice. But decor is a bit "grand" for a steakhouse and slightly too "plush" for my taste. Overlooking that, the steak was 100% better than Del Frisco.
I had a party of 11 birthday dinner, everyone was very pleased and most satisfied with the food, service and style. In the US Marine Corps evaluation system the highest grade you can receive is NOTEWORTHY. Without question the Empire Steak House deserves a NOTEWORTHY.
Restaurant vide pour le déjeuner. Repas médiocre
We had a wonderful birthday dinner at Empire Steak House last Saturday. Our waiter was very kind and offered great recommendations without pressuring us. The food was delicious and the atmosphere very comfortable. One of the best fine dining restaurants in New York City. We will definitely be back!
The bone-in ribeye was spectacular. It was matched only by the service. Cheers!
The steak was just delicious as well as the apple strudel. The staff was attentive helpful and friendly .
Will definitely go back and recommend.
It was a treat to be in a restaurant where you can have a conversation and not hear everyone else’s
This location is our favorite one. Everything was excellent. Highly recommended to everyone. They helped make the evening extra special by accommodating my requests and being understandable when it came to my reservation time being pushed back due to traffic.
The hamburger was like 1/4 pound advertise 1/2 bun yesterday’s meat dry thumbs down don’t go their
We really enjoyed our dinner at Empire Steak House. We love the old school New York feel and service. The food was fantastic...our only concern was the noise coming from the upper balcony. There was a private party taking place and our seating was just below the staircase. For the price of our meal it was a bit annoying to hear the partying loud music and noise coming from upstairs. For such a lovely restaurant and venue it did put a damper on the evening. The regular restaurant music was fine...it was just the loud booming music from the upper level that was distracting and did not allow proper communication during dinner. The waitstaff was very friendly and accommodating.
Food was decent not great. Had much better filets from Empire West. Service was crap, our server was snotty and very unremarkable.
The place is beautiful and has a cool vibe.
We enjoyed our dining experience at Empire. Service was outstanding Food was delicious typical premium steakhouse fare. One issue, I had ordered my bone in sirloin medium well, with just a little pink, but came out closer to the rare side. I hate sending meat back to cook further as it then comes back too well done in most cases.
Despite booking, the restaurnat was close for private event without any sort of communication
It is expensive but service and food are great. Enjoy
Excellent food and service. Solid wine list. A pricey spot to celebrate but worth it for the special occasion. We were a party of four and everyone left happy. All plates were enough to share so we got to sample every dish brought to the table. Not a bad item on the menu.
Another great dinner at Empire! Frank was a sensational waiter. Looking forward to next year's visit!
Classic New York Steakhouse. Great food, service and hospitality. Loved every minute.
Mr Hamit and Mr. Decca were beyond friendly and helped me and my fiancée in the best way possible. It was an absolute delight being in Empire Steakhouse and I can't wait to go again. Thank you guys
My 2nd time there & I can never get enough. The food is beyond amazing & the ambience is wonderful
The waiter was hard to understand and did not understand us brought me the wrong steak and left everybody else's dinner and they were done eating and then I had my steak brought to me after everybody was done and didn't offer any real kind of compensation so I will not rush to go back
Service and food was impeccable as usual. We ordered the steak for three and it was cooked to perfection. Our waiter Alen was fantastic. Definitely worth the trip. We will definitely be back again.
Dear Lance, Thank you for choosing to dine at our establishment and taking your time to share this beautiful feedback with us. We are thrilled to know that you enjoyed our food as well as the service and that everything met your expectations. We hope to see you soon! Kindest Regards, Empire Steakhouse Management
Excellent service, pre fix menu was a little pricey, but was able to avoid by ordering fro. Regular ala cart menu. Wonderful and thoughtful and attentive staff and amazing food
we had an 8:30 reservation but waited 25 minutes for a table. The restaurant is too crowded for my taste. After dinner they gave us two glasses of wine to make up for the table being late.
Food was ON POINT. Well done Empire!!! :)
We ate at the restaurant for Restaurant Week. There were many choices, unlike at other restaurants. Great wine choices at reasonable prices. Great service too. Lovely evening. We will be back.
The service was excellent was seated immediately and the waiters were great.
Overall disappointing experience. Maybe I am a steak snob but this is by far the worst of the nicer steak houses I have been too compared to Del Friscos, quality meats, old homestead, keens, palm, capital, sparks, Lugers, Bobby Vans, Ben and Jacks, Wolfgang’s all far above this place. They strip steak tasted like something from a diner that was microwaved. The service was incompetent and disconnected from what was going on in the restaurant. I would never come back here again especially in NYC when there are 20 other steak houses worth going to.
Restaurant week disaster. Waiter not enthusiastic about restaurant weekend and then moved to service large party and never came back. Food was forgotten about and came out after other peoples and not warm.
I had a lovely time and thought the food, ambiance, wait staff, service, and overall everything about my lunch there was excellent
Our night at Empire Steak House was great! The staff are always very friendly and if ever they make a mistake (which isn’t often) they are quick to fix it. We will definitely be back!
It was a first at a steakhouse for me and we had a great experience overall.
It was truly a wonderful experience, excellent service, food, and environment.
My friends and I ate at Empire for Restaurant Week. It was Superbowl Sunday so it was pretty empty. The food was OK, and small portion sizes, so definitely not worth their regular prices. The service was incredible though, very speedy and courteous waiters. The place is gorgeous.
Excellent service and outstanding food
