They lack hospitality, expertise, safety, honesty, and welcome. I had a table of two with a bill close to $500. They poured my wine I ordered into a broken glass. My waitress was not knowledgeable of menu food options. The chefs gave me lobster bisque with huge lobster shell in it. The bronizo I ordered without capers came with capers never to be replaced. Albert, the manager, added an 18% gratuity to a two person table, the reservation was for four but was reduced to a party of two. Albert lied to me and told me it was the restaurant policy to add gratuity because of the money we spent there. After I noticed the inappropriate gratuity, I said I was going to leave a Yelp review of my experience then he apologized, took the original receipt, and gave me a 10% discount and removed the gratuity (only after I said I was leaving a review) I felt judged and not welcomed. Albert, rushed us from the beginning before we sat down saying the kitchen was closing when though we had a 9pm reservation. I told him I was insulted the that 18% gratuity he had put on my bill for a party of two, and that I’m a 20% tipper even to a waitress that didn’t deserve it or one that did not even crack my fresh black pepper I asked for. She’s sweet, she just needs training.

Overall very good steak house. Service was very good except they were very understaffed. Quality of steak very good. Unfortunately under staffing due to Covid.
Steak is poor quality. Baked clams are tasteless. Bread was cold.

Incredible food and service! Would recommend 100x!!
We have not been to Empire since the pandemic began and I am happy to say that everything about our experience was worth the trip. We started with the Calamari and the taste and freshness is consistent. The squid itself may have been smaller than in the past. We shared a bone-in ribeye and the filet mignon. The ribeye is my favorite and it was perfectly seasoned and cooked. We had a side of the steak fries and it’s always perfectly done. Expensive fries but always amazing! The ambience and service are always excellent- it’s quiet with servers singing the occasional birthday song for a few guest tables. Empire is a gem! It I s our family’s favorite steakhouse in Manhattan!
always good. never disappoints. Our favorite steak house in new york city
The food was just okay, but the vibe of the place is cute and staff was nice!
Great food and great service!
Came for restaurant week and added a few items off the regular menu. Thick cut bacon was great, but steak was underwhelming (perhaps it was because it was from the restaurant week menu). Staff was very nice and service was great.

It was amazing
Awesome cozzy and elegant place. Food was simply amazing and service was great. They even stopped us on our way out to call us back and give us a free drink and cheesecake as it was my birthday. Highly recommended. Probably one of the best meals I’ve ever had ( porter house, mac cheese and creamed spinach !)

Food was amazing and staff was very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.
Wait staff was very accommodating, atmosphere was great and it’s location is convenient. Will definitely revisit Empire again.
Great atmosphere and the staff was really nice and friendly
We had dinner around 9pm and I’m not sure if it was that we were one of the last tables or what but our food was mediocre for a steakhouse. Baked clams we ordered were horrible and so fishy- we didn’t eat them because they tasted horrible. The waiter was so nice enough to offer another option instead which I really appreciated. We both ordered steak and it was just okay. I usually rave about the steak but it was just ok, nothing great about it and it had so much fat in it. It wasn’t the piece or cut of steak to blame just looked so unappetizing. We didn’t get dessert because we were let down with dinner but once again our awesome waiter went out of his way and brought us out a tiramisu to share. It was really nice of him. The service was great but too bad that the food wasn’t. Because of this experience I probably won’t be returning to an empire steakhouse anytime soon.
The ambiance was very nice and calm. The restaurant week steak was very fatty I barely had any meat of the steak.
Good value steak house with great service.
Had great service with food that was well prepared and great
Tried to go here for restaurant week and i thought the food was a little above average. Maybe the regular menu would be better.
Everything was amazing! You have to have the porterhouse steak !
Great service and portions for the price. We loved it and will go back again
Great place for a meal. The reastaurant week menu was fine although only two courses.
Service was really special
Enjoyed beautiful food here during restaurant week. Drinks are not quite as delicious but that didn’t matter as the service more than made up for it
EXCELLENT as always. Food, service and ambience. Never disappoints. Will go again
The staff was very nice. The food came out fast.
I have had better steak, I wouldn’t go back to this place.
The evening was absolutely amazing! To start we were serenaded by the violists. The service was spectacular, they were attentive and funny. The food was delicious. Overall an unforgettable visit…will definitely recommend to family and friends.
This is only for
Empire is always up to the task of serving a great meal.
Great place to meet friends or business associates.
Service is exceptional.
The food was very good snd service excellent. But, like most other restaurant week participants, the options were limited.
Lovely ,romantic ambiance. Delicious food. Excellent and gracious service.
