This restaurant is fun and lively with a great bar. The food is on point as far as flavors however we waited almost an hour for our entrées to arrive and when they did everything was room temperature. We even had our pasta dish redone and it came back room temperature a second time. They are very accommodating when it comes to food allergies such as dairy. All dishes are all a cart and big enough the share.
I was running behind for a business dinner and they canceled my reservation even though they had plenty of room. Unimpressed by staff.
Very good experience.
Always great service at Imperial.
I’ve been here for breakfast and dinner. The food was very good (get the crab omelette! Very crabby!). The service was great. The atmosphere is sophisticated without being overly fancy or pretentious. It’s also quite large, which is nice for groups.
Wonderful service amazing food.
Watermelon gazpacho on a 100 degree day was perfect!
Nice place! Enjoyed the Bloody Mary and oysters. Great server.
A bit noisy but the food and service was wonderful
Their food was phenomenal! Especially the desert. Some are vegetarian AND vegan friendly. Had the coconut rice pudding. The only thing is the environment is a little loud and from what I saw there weren't tables in a quieter spot. So good for friends, maybe not a date given the noise level. Overall wonderful experience!
Carpaccio was delicious, but too dressed up.
Dry-aged T bone was excellent
My first time there. Had a nice brunch. Will definitely be back!
I thoroughly enjoyed the drinks and service! Would definitely come back.
Great, practical menu. Solid taste and not overly prepared. Simple but tasty with something for everyone
We ate at Imperial on our first visit to Portland and we liked it. So we decided to go back but this time the food was just okay. In fact, I am sure some ingredient were missing in a couple of our plates, like the nicoise only had green beens, salad, tuna and the egg was not quail egg. Anyway, it was weird because our fist experience was good.
Really vibrant place with lots of great brunch choices
Quite disappointed by my brunch at Imperial. It wasn’t that busy yet our food (only 2 of us) took 30 mins to arrive. It was ok but average to be honest and the gravey for the biscuits was way too thick. Wouldn’t have minded so much , but having pointed out how long we were waiting our server said ‘we are really busy’ which it wasn’t and it’s not like you can’t staff up for a Saturday brunch. No apology when it did finally arrive either. Won’t be back.
Food was excellent, as was the service. Atmosphere was a bit too noisy for a special occasion dinner.
The fried chicken was perfectly fried and very juicy but needed more flavor. It was somewhat bland but still very good
Great food. At our table, we had the ribeye, roasted chicken, bacon chop, and surf&turf. Everyone raves about their food. Good stuff.
Loved the place, food, and the staff is great. We shared lots of dishes and all of them were delicious.
Nice venue and great location, but far too small of a menu! Mediocre food with high price tags!
Probably the best bone-in dry-aged ribeye I’ve ever had.
Food was excellent. I had the goat cheese omelette and spouse had scrambled eggs, potatoes and toast. The potatoes were nice and crispy on the outside, and we appreciated the skins were left on. The host was not very friendly at check in or when we left. Server was good - checked in on us and was helpful.
Overall, Imperial's food continues to impress each time I revisit. This time I tried the ribeye that's usually on the menu and it was quite good, even better than the wagyu coulette someone else in the party had. Cocktails are worth checking out too. Note that it can be VERY noisy here, so if you're looking for quiet conversation you may want to look elsewhere.
The food was very good. Our server was also very good. Host/hostess lacked professionalism and good customer service. Waited for 20 mins to be seated after a mess up on their end and they barely recognized the inconvenience.
I'm becoming disillusioned with Imperial. We go here for breakfast because it is easy to get in, but this time the espresso drinks sat on the counter and cooled off before they were delivered to us (Water Avenue espresso - over roasted and bitter; they used to have Cafe Umbria and should bring it back--or Spella would be awesome). The the salty salad served with my crab omelette was off putting, and the crab omelette was dried out. I recall being disappointed the last time I was here too, so it will likely be a while before we go back. The best meal I've had here was for dinner (salmon collar to start, fried chicken entree). Ahh, it seems so long ago...
Arrived early for our reservations and started with creative drinks at the bar. We were seated at a small table in the middle of the restaurant but it still felt private. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive without hovering. The food was delicious.
I didn't even know this second restaurant run by Vitaly Paley existed! Loved the location, loved that I didn't have to make reservations weeks in advance, and loved the food. Yeah, it's spendy, but I thought it was reasonable, considering the quality of the food. My husband and I were there for a special occasion, and I would definitely choose it again as a special occasion destination.
Service was intermittently slow or good. 2 entrees arrived well ahead of three others, so a bit awkward. Cocktails were great! Speciallty burger was nothing special, potatoes over cooked. Steak was delicious as were salads and mushroom sides. Rolls as always were wonderful.
Great place! Enjoyed everything about
Sat at a sidewalk table on a beautiful evening. Felt almost like Paris. Great service, delicious food (loved the scallops and halibut; desserts were also excellent). Try the pickles - who knew pickled pineapple would be so yummy. Timing was perfect; we easily made it to the theater afterward. I will go back.
Excellent food and ambience. We loved the recommended Oregon wine!
Loved it! Belated birthday dinner with my husband. We both loved our choices - I had surf and turf, husband had roasted chicken. Also got potatoes. Excellent service, great menu choices, great wine choices. And, valet parking is a real plus! Portland casual, but I honestly wish Portlanders were willing to dress up a bit more for a nice, expensive dinner out. Definite go back.
Service was fair to poor. Had to ask for our drinks 3 times and the food was served before the beverages arrived.
Best Bloody Mary ever!!
Delicious brunch options- the honey roll, ham benedict and simmered greens were outstanding!
We had a nice meal with out of town friends. Excellent service!
From making the reservation, to our server Kathleen, and to the table we settled wonderfully. The light fixtures and chandelier were even eye catching, it’s interesting how they were made of bicycle chains. We enjoyed the attention to detail, superb quality service, and Kathleen our server. Their tasteful flavor and texture of food is beyond words. We ordered the grilled oysters, Brandt beef Rib eye, Wild King Salmon, and Grilled Halibut dishes with the spicy green salad sub raspberry vinaigrette, and warm Parker house rolls. My special someone even enjoyed my Rib eye and potatoes said it was the best he’s ever tasted at any restaurant. The drink choice “New Money” was a fine hit as well. Oh and the delectable salted Carmel Banana split topped off a great dinner. Mom said she’d get a second order. We look forward to the next time we return, maybe test the breakfast, brunch or lunch, or dinner again!
We brought out-of-town visitors, and they were beyond pleased. Every single bite was flavorful and well executed. Our server understood our needs and was an excellent guide through our meal.
