Pretty loud, not good for a meal where you want to have a conversation. Food was okay a little pricey for basic fair, about on par with Downtown though.
Me la pas de maravilla, la cena verdaderamente riquísima.
The food was absolutely delicious and our server was a doll. I had a bunch of other servers pass with a water jug that didn't notice that I needed more water, even when I lifted my hand politely. However, my server came by to check on us and upon seeing us not having water grabbed a jug, so I don't blame her at all. Overall super yummy brunch to spoil ourselves. Also, the "poptart" should be renamed to "dreamtart" or "heavenlypastry" or something because it was the lightest, fluffiest, perfectly sweet with tart jam filled tasty treat to ever touch these lips. Thank you to whoever invented that little gift from above. 9/10
Love the fried chicken, oysters are delicious as well. Great service even though it was a busy night. Also have been for happy hour and enjoyed both.
Waitstaff was great. Knowledgeable when we had questions. We were early and they were accommodating even though they were busy. Food was delicious and spirit selection was awesome.
We LOVED everything we ate. Cleaned our plates! The only odd thing was that we were a group of four and we were seated at a round table for five. I wish they would’ve removed the 5th chair so that we could evenly disperse ourselves around the round table. We didn’t ask for it to be removed so that’s also partially our fault. All in all, it was enjoyable and the food was superb. Drinks were delicious, and the details in the decor really make the place.
We had a great experience on Valentine’s Day! Our server was awesome, the menu was great, and everything was delicious as always. The only downside is that it was quite noisy, but it was a holiday and every table was full. Will be back, of course!
Everyone raves about the pork chop and I was disappointed. It was half fat and not super tender. The pear? Sauce didn't compliment it very much. The mustard seed was good with it though. The bacon collard greens were delicious. My bfs flat iron steak was super good and tender. It was kinda cold. The bread rolls were amazing. The cocktails were tasty too.
The number one no-no for a chef is under seasoned food. The food was woefully void of seasoning. I remember the chicken being perfectly seasoned last time I had it several years ago. Another no-no is serving food that is cold that is supposed to be hot. My husband’s pork chop was cold and when he sent it back it unfortunately returned warm - but, dry and overcooked. The service was excellent and I would give them an A+ for that. They comped desserts/ but, my husband doesn’t eat dessert.
Service was great. Food was delicious. Veggie sides were inventive and had incredible flavor. Price points for proteins were a tad high for the portions provided. Otherwise, wonderful experience.
The entire dining experience was amazing! The atmosphere was fun and lively, but not too loud. The food was delicious and the combinations of flavors and plating was impressive and very creative. I cant wait to try more items on the menu. We will be back every time we visit Portland!
Service let this place down. There wasn't a request made of our server that didn't seem to make him annoyed. Not sure if it was attitude or just boredom. Food was decent. Pity the service isn't up to par.
First time to eat at the Imperial but won't be our last. Reservation made online and received a reminder call day of reservation. Tough drive from Hillsboro for a 5:15 pm reservation, but was rewarded by friendly and consoling server with wonderful service. Our meals were first rate. The mushroom risotto was out of this world. I thought my wife was going to pickup her plate and lick up the remnants on the plate it was so delicious. Thanks and cheers for the Imperial.
amazing creative food and fun atmosphere. it is very loud so some people may not like that.
We booked imperial last minute. The food was good. I had the clam linguine and bread and the gf had the wings and fries. The service was prompt but the food could have been better. Definitely not the Imperial of Old
Prime rib night.
The food was really excellent. I came with my wife and daughter-in-law and we all agreed about that. The service was also excellent BUT, we unfortunately we would not come again because the noise level was just SO LOUD that we could hardly hear each other speak.
Wish you could something about that. It probably doesn't bother the younger crowd but it sure did bother us.
Went here for a business team dinner. We had great service from the staff - start to finish. Food was well timed and delivered promptly. One item was mis-delivered, and the wrong person started eating it. Once they realized the error, they promptly ordered a replacement item and delivered it quickly. Food was good quality and tasty. They had several options to cover multiple needs - vegan, veg, paleo.
Biggest bonus was a large round table that could comfortably seat our 8 diners. Was great for cross table conversation.
Got a bit loud as the night went on, but never over the top.
We'd go back again!
Wonderful food and outstanding service. I would have preferred it if the atmosphere was perhaps more conducive to quiet conversation, although overall the noise levels were not overwhelming, but what would be expected for a busy restaurant on a Saturday night.
The food itself was fantastic and makes me want to explore everything on the menu. The service was extraordinary as with our server never leaving us feel neglected, and was very attentive to the timing we wanted our food to come from the kitchen.
Food was fantastic service was exceptional.
Overall decent dining experience, but pretty high priced for what it was, especially when compared to other establishments at the same price point. MUCH better steaks at Ox and Laurelhurst.
Good dining experience! I had the Brussels Sprouts and tomato soup and quite tasty. I didn't give it 5 stars because the brussel sprouts were a little unevenly cooked with some not cooked quite through. But tasty nevertheless and I would return.
The fry bread chorizo breakfast dish was sooooo good.
The food was well prepared and the service quite good. Portions was filling and satisfactory and overall we will come again to try other items on the menu. I will note that we were a party of six and we each had a different dish and all were exceptionally flavorful and tasty.
Great food and a menu to please most anybody. As is the case with too many restaurants today, the noise level is harsh when it is busy.
Few vegetarian entree options. More entree options and vegetarian dinner specials are lacking.
Imperial was fine, but I'm not in a rush to return.
Near spot. Will definitely come back. Do double check their service windows. For example, we had to wait around to try things off their dinner menu, because Nrunch is exclusively, and strictly only served until 3pm. No biggie, we just had another round of drinks and waited an hour. Get the chicken biscuits with an egg. Just do it.
Good service, some menu items overpriced, others fair value.
We had a very pleasurable dining experience at The Imperial. The food was delicious and there were a wide variety of choices. Out waiter was helpful in making suggestions. He was also helpful in our wine choice. We were never rushed and our waiter was attentive to our needs. Our dinner was a little slow in arriving, but not so much that we had to ask about it. We had enough to eat but still had room for dessert, had we so opted. All in all, a nice dining experience. We sat in the middle of the main dining area, so the noise was a bit high. I've eaten here before, so I know other, more peripheral locations are quieter.
Food is always fantastic!!
We really love going to Imperial. Had the roasted brussels sprouts, which included bacon and apple pieces a in a mustard-based sauce, roast beef with root veg mash and yorkshire pudding, and the marinated pork shoulder (a favorite), and we finished with a chocolate-hazelnut pie. All were fantastic. It's often very loud at Imperial, which is about the only thing we don't like, but we were there somewhat early for a Friday night, so it was a bit quieter this time.
We all enjoyed our dinners a great deal and had a wonderful time with excellent service and a fun atmosphere.
New Years Eve dinner
New Years Eve
Excellent food and the wood fire cook was fun to watch.
Amazing food with creative thought and nearly perfect execution!
Food was excellent, service was very good. They give you a little time to figure out your selection, then when you are ready to order, service moves quickly.
Food was pretty standard for Portland. Maybe a little expensive for what we got. I thought the rolls would be hot.
I loved everything except the charred sweet potato and in the end we didn't really need it (as suggested by the wait staff) as the portions were plenty big. Also the prices seemed to have been raised. The whole bill was pretty shocking for 3 people.
