Nice table tucked away a bit from the hustle, food was fantastic and generous portions. Drinks same!
Had a great time. All good food and drinks!
Excellent food, service and ambiance. Definitely will go back.
Food was delicious and service was great! Our waitress was personable and helpful with any questions we had. A wonderful experience overall!
Excellent service. Love the ambience.
I came to empire for my birthday dinner. The food was delicious. Service was outstanding. I just love it here. I always have a great experience.
Will not recommend this place and don’t plan to go back. Waitress was not helpful and very unfriendly.
The atmosphere was very energetic. The food and drinks were very good. However, our server was missing most of the time. Just to order additional food we had to ask someone else.
We live two blocks away and come here a lot. Tonight was a mess. We had a reservation but waited a half hour to be seated while others who arrived after us got their tables. Once seated, our service was beyond slow and spotty at best. Our server was barely present and we only ended up ordering a couple of appetizers because she never came back to ask if we wanted anything else. When we asked for a dessert menu, we were told there wasn’t any dessert. Kind of felt like they didn’t want us to be there. Very unusual as our previous experience has been great. We will wait for a while before going back, if at all.
Amazing food and music!!
Crazy. We ordered and our entrees came in 10 minutes. We told them we wanted the apps first. So they brought the apps immediately followed by the cold entrees. Had to send them back again. Got it right at the end but ???????
After a show at the Opera House
We've been overcharged for almost $100. Not sure why they think this is normal.... Very disappointed. Not coming back again.
Amazing experience. Came back a week later cause we craved it so much.
Love this place, everything was great. The Salt-N-Pepper calamari was fantastic. The salmon with Jasmine’s rice was so tasty, the New York strip steak was cooked perfect over mashed potatoes. Energy was wonderful, this place never fails.
Beautiful atmosphere great cocktails and awesome appetizers highly recommend
I told the waiter I had a seafood allergy and he still brought us rice with shrimp.
This was my 4th or 5th time at Empire and it is always good. Food, service, ambiance all top notch.
Hostess staff was unaccommodating and didn’t follow through on seating us as they promised over the phone. I called because were running about 20 min late overall.
Love the food and decor
A little pricey but what isnt in Seaport
Food are good
We did the Tuesday deal where you order from a separate menu for a fixed price (all you can eat). We were pretty disappointed when almost every item was fried and tasted like it was leftover. The dumplings were horrible don’t order them they ate just blocks of meat wrapped in fried dough. And everything else gave us stomach aches.
Amazing food. Beautiful restaurant
Hostesses we’re extremely rude and unprofessional. My reservation got messed up and made us wait another 40 mins to be seated when they messed up.
The service was awful!!!! And the food wasn’t fresh. TERRIBLE.
Food and service was great, drinks were expensive. But we had a fun!
Awesome time! Thanks
Watermelon drink show stopper. Apps were great. Entrees not so great. Restaurant is loud but it’s a good scene.
Great. There was a bad smell where we sat but it was taking care by a waitress after we brought it to her attention.
I have been going to the Empire for years and I was sad to see the dress code nowadays, people in shorts and t-shirts!
Restaurant was great. From the hostess to our serve who was absolutely awesome ! The food was so delicious, the drinks were strong and tasty! They had a lounge area and the music was great ! Will go back on our next trip to Boston.
It was ok. Not stellar.
Dani and Jenn made our evening really good! Amazing food and drinks! Great environment
Had dinner with girl friends. Menu is perfect, something for everyone. I love the drink and the sushi cupcakes in Ferris wheel so much . Will be back definitely!
I’ve been here twice. If you aren’t coming here for clubbing or drinking, go somewhere else. The dining area has club-level music volume. Food was gross and over-cooked, on par with a crappy neighborhood Asian spot. Except it was as expensive as a nice meal.
Great experience per usual, customer service and quality food!
Entirely mediocre at every level. Won’t go back unless I happen to be in the area with a friend from out of town who really really wants $26 chicken lo mein and pre-frozen pork dumplings before I have to drop them at the airport.
Shamful service, disrespectful, brought the wrong food.
Once seated the service was great and food was wonderful. Just the issue with our table not ready and wouldn’t have been ready for another half hour and had to sit in the lounge.
Gorgeous restaurant and great for people watching - even with limited capacity due to COVID regulations. Dinner was yummy but maybe a tad on the overpriced side for the offerings. Waitstaff was attentive, prompt, & very friendly.
