Food great. Dessert was off the charts amazing.
The atmosphere is dated, the space and decor a little middle-America and lacking in sophistication.
Good food for its location which is generally a food desert. Nothing outstanding to write home about.
Food was excellent. Great vibe. Loved the margaritas
Our server Kristin was wonderful and made the evening a fantastic experience. We enjoyed the salsas, the tacos and the dessert was fabulous
Very over priced with poor ambiance. The siete salsa guacamole was decent but aside from that would pass on the entire experience.
Everything was very good as usual. I thought it was a little bait and switch to have ribeye on the menu then when I ordered it I was told it was switched to skirt steak. I was charged the same as the ribeye was on the menu, I think the price should have been adjusted for the lower cut of meat. That being said the dish was still very good. I would also like if I could use the opentable pay function here.
Wonderful food and attentive service.
Just really an overall great experience.
Manhattans were perfect and the tuna tartare was exceptional.
Amazing guacamole with flight of sauces.
While the environment was nice. Food was good but over priced.
The service was amazing and the food delicious! Thank you.
The staff was attentive and energetic, ushering in the New Year at Empellon was a good choice, my family and I had a great time.
The service was friendly and attentive, even though we were a party of 10. And as always the food was delicious and copious. Crab nachos and the guacamole dishes are the must-order appetizers. We ordered the skirt steak, short ribs and fish tacos and were not disappointed. All were cooked and seasoned perfectly. As for sides, the brussel sprouts were a huge hit. Empellon's Saffron margaritas are the bomb!
Everything was very nice!
Food was excellent
We celebrated my husbands 60th Birthday! The service and food are impeccable!!!! Highly recommend.
Great place. Excellent service and food quality.
Very interesting menu. Warm professional service. Impeccably prepared food. Great margarita. Located near Rockefeller Center and radio city music hall. One of our best meals in New York! Highly recommended
We love Empellon! We food is always delicious, the seven salsas a tradition that never disappoints. This time service was a bit slow, probably because of a large party. We highly recommend Empellon to our friends and we always get compliments for the tip.
This is one of those rare restaurants where everything comes together. Great food, atmosphere and service. The prices are high but worth the splurge.
Beautiful atmosphere, incredible food, and AMAZING and accommodating staff!! I’d go back in a heartbeat.
The food was very good however the price point was OUTRAGEOUS. As an example 4 margaritas was $80 and it was house tequila.
Unfortunately this is NYC these days
As a regular, I usual order these basics which cannot be beat anywhere: cabbage salad, guacamole and the incredible fish tacos. if you are still hungry any dessert would work. My only wish is that they again offer the falafel and hash brown tacos which have sadly been taken off the menu.
I love Empellon midtown
It never disappoints!
Great and innovative food, delicious drinks, and lovely service.
Start with the guacamole and chips: fine selection of salsas from mild to spicy.
The duck tamale has a lovely presentation.
Try the “Avocado” dessert! 🥑 it will surprise you!
Delicious food. We especially loved the tacos and guacamole. Will definitely return on a future NYC visit.
Good business lunch
Overpriced. Not because it was expensive. The food does not warrant such a price tag.
Great atmosphere and server was so friendly and service was amazing!
Excellent food and outstanding service. I highly recommend!
In this cavernous, bustling, noisy space, conversation was impossible. The food was good but not worth the exorbitant price paid. Service was mediocre & inattentive. I’d never recommend this establishment to anyone.
Great food but service was very slow during peak lunch time. We waited a good 20 min before apps came out.
The hostess was incredibly accommodating and flexible. This continues to be one of by top 10 spots in midtown!
Great restaurant! Wonderful drinks.
Great food and good service, no disappointments here!
The service and the ambience were great and the food was tasty. It’s the value that was challenging. $48.00 for short ribs? Most entrees were over $35.00 and just felt a little too pricey for the limited offer. Better for lunch than dinner.
Love this place and the hostess Constance is amazing! Will be back again soon :)
Food was good but we were seated in the butlers pantry
It felt a little chilly in the restaurant.
Excellent, innovative and beautiful food and wonderful service. A real gem in midtown.
