Disappointing. Left after a couple of appetizers.
Great atmosphere, good service, but the filet was tough and lacked flavor.
Great experience in all aspects. Service was continuously attentive, and the atmosphere was elegant and romantic. The portions were large and filling. Between amazing food, service, and ambience, it was extremely worth it. Would easily return for another special occasion.
Food was excellent, but service was horrible! We definitely felt like we were unwelcome, and not worth much effort
This restaurant is best steak house in NYC!
The steak and service were fantastic. Worth visiting for special occasion!
Lugar sin música para un evento como navidad!!
We appeared to be invisible to the wait staff. Had to flag down other servers to get our server to come come to our table more than once. Steak was below average and a bit overcooked. The host/manager was the only nice part of the evening. He was very attentive and professional.
The place was really nice looking. Good steak choices. The food was good. The service could have been better. They were out of almost half the desserts on the menu and the manager didn't even do anything about it. Everything we were trying to order was out.
Terrible service. Took 15 minutes to even get asked what to drink. Then any time we needed anything we had to ask for it. Expected much better customer service. The food was sub-par for the price.
The whole experience was awesome the staff was very accommodating. Food was definitely worth all the pennies I gave them (alot of them) lol. The steak was very tender flavorful as well as the lobster.
La carne espectacular súper suave y jugosa
Food outstanding. Portions generous. Ambiance amazing
Our annual trip to the City. Restaurant was within walking distance from our hotel so we took a chance.
High energy place
Wait staff was harried but the manager was on on-point. They overlooked bringing out our drinks for a bit. But meal was delicious We didn’t ask for dessert but was given complimentary desserts
Would definitely return
I ordered the ribeye steak and to be honesth, I have had much better ribeye steaks at other steakhouses. I also ordered the side dish of sauteed mushrooms and I did not like them. I was also not offered a dessert option but I was asked if I wanted to have coffee. I did order a cappuccino and waited to see if they offered dessert options or dessert menu but none came.
The place was loud and full of people. Different kinds of music from at least 3 different places. Service team was weird- polite, but also kind of mean in their attitude. The food is solid, but nothing extraordinary. On the other hand, the wine selection was impressive.
Came here with the family after the Christmas Spectacular and it was great. We sat in the back room, it was perfect for a family with kids. Would absolutely recommend and go back. Our server was really tentative, friendly and had great recommendations.
We choose this restaurant because our reservations for another restaurant were cancelled at the last minute do to a fire at the restaurant. After reading the reviews, we decided to give Empire a try since we were looking for a quite restaurant for our last meal in NYC.
Overall the service was good but the food was not worth the price. The creamed spinach was probably the worst creamed spinach we have ever tasted. We asked the Server if the spinach was fresh and he quickly replied yes. But if we had to guess the spinach was from a can.
As for the quite dinner, after being seated next to a very busy area a party of at least two dozen people showed up and was seated in the middle of the dining room. After that we could barely hear each other. It would have been nice for the restaurant to take into consideration that most people would have liked to have been seated away from a large party.
Beautiful restaurant, went on 2yr anniversary dinner with the gf. Order Porterhouse Steak Medium Rare and some German Potatoes. Potatoes were off the f*** chain. Steak too, however they charred the skin a bit too much for my taste. Not sure if that's how it's supposed to be or not, but to my liking....I don't like it. The steak was for two people for sure.
We love this place! The food is good, the service is wonderful, and the ambience is warm and charming. Love!
Great dinner. Did not want national chain for this dinner! Met old out of town friends here that we hadn't seen in years, so there was a lot of catching up. Waiter gave us enough space so we could talk, drink and then order, but didn't just disappear and kept drinks coming when needed. Waiter was exceptionally good, also helpful when ordering and the food was even better. We order the porterhouse for 4 (WOW!) along with varied side dishes. Side cooked perfectly and yes, plenty of it. We certainly will go to Empire Steak House again.
Always consistent. Staff are terrific.
Environment conducive to having a conversation.
Ordered the rib eye steak medium rare. It was over cooked and dry. Very hard to cut. Was really holding for better quality for the price
Great steaks and wines. Had a wonderful time.
Food and service was very good. I was pleasantly surprised. Our Tomahawk steak was solid. The price is quite high so that would be the only negative comment.
Great as usually. Nick and his staff are wonderful.
My family ate here this past weekend, and we were not impressed. From start to finish, the experience was very disappointing. The server was unfriendly and unhelpful, our drinks were not made correctly, the steaks were expensive, tough, and cooked improperly. For the amount of money that we spent here, we would’ve expected to have had a much better meal and better service. We would not recommend Empire Steak House and we will not be returning in the future.
Big steaks, lovely service, beautiful decor. Thank you so much
I chose this restaurant because I was able to make a same day reservation. I didn't know what to expect. My wife and I were very happy with the attentive service and high food quality. We loved it!
Beautiful restaurant, great service, delicious food.
Fabulous service. The most amazing fillet mignon I have ever had and an attention to detail that is unsurpassed !
great place, good food, I'd recommend for a quite sit-down and good conversation.
Outstanding value. Good food, excellent service, good wine list, good decor and ambience.
Food is slightly below average (for the cost), and there's a slightly shabby vibe, but it's rare to find a QUIET steakhouse, and that makes up for a lot. Good service and good desserts.
Foods was excel but service was even better.
Food was very good, service was a tad slow, i think one order of the three was not turned in as the waiter came back and asked one of our guys what he had ordered. Wait was not terrible as we had business to discuss anyway. Manager had sent us an after dinner drink as a kind gesture. Will be back
Awesome food! Awesome service! Ask for Franklin. He made it a great meal!
Great meal to kickstart a weekend. Aside from how shocked I was that the staff tolerated and completely ignored the behavior of the rude couple sitting across from us that were engaging in activities that should have been saved for behind closed doors- to the point of undressing each other- we turned the other way and really enjoyed delicious fresh seafood and sizzling cuts of meat that were superb. We were treated like royalty by the staff.
