I had the best evening here at Empire. The loaded tots were amazing along with the other appetizers! The service was great and it wasn’t too crowded inside. I felt very safe. even when my friend dropped a glass and glass shattered everywhere.
I had a great time. I celebrated my 30th birthday and the venue was beyond my expectations. The place is amazing and the cocktails were great. But I must say that what made my experience unforgettable were the servers. Servers were extremely kind and helpful. They helped me to keep all my guests happy. Totally recommended.
Very nice ambience! I went with my boyfriend for his birthday and we really enjoyed!
Good time , great service. I would recommend this place to friends
Great place! Would definitely recommend, iconic...
Ambiance was great, food and drinks was great. Would absolutely recommend and will definitely go back.
Staff was excellent, food was tasty and location was amazing
Super fun place and the drinks and food were both super good. Perfect for a fun night out!
This place is amazing ! Great service and food and drinks !
Took two friends to celebrate a birthday (during quarantine) at the Rooftop - staff was so helpful and temperature-checked our entire group before entering. The layout was so spaced out that no one felt at-risk and we were able to have a really enjoyable time. Can't wait to go back!
Great customer service!
Amazing food and adorable rooftop ; the food BLEW MY MIND. Try out the chicken wings and the mac and cheese.
Empire rooftop has great vibes for couples or even groups of friends. The atmosphere, seating and lighting is perfect for a night in the city of drinking and having a good time. Definitely would come back to this lounge. The service was very very good. Very respectful, professional employees that are willing to accommodate the consumer at any cost.
Great service and food.
Drinks were amazing, food was amazing, and the service was awesome! Perfect NYC rooftop experience. The view is amazing!
The staff was so warm and inviting even with the pending restaurant closures. The cocktails were excellent and it was overall a good vibe.
Great outdoor space for Iconic city views. Delicious drinks!
Amazing night out with friends for my birthday!
Please put heaters for the outdoor dining because it was cold at night!!
We want to eat there through the pandemic and it will be too cold
Otherwise drinks food and service was great
Awesome service, beautiful rooftop with amazing views! Overall had an excellent time with incredible drinks!
Service was excellent. Shame for using frozen food. Poor quality. Cheap.
I live down the street and I always love coming to the Empire Rooftop after work with friends. My sister and I decided to stop in the other night and the service was wonderful as always.
Rooftop experience tonight was perfect. Might have been 50 degrees but the rooftop bubble kept it warm and the service staff was exceptional. Party of 5 and ordered 7 small plates to share and couldn’t finish it all - so yummy. It was really well done!! Kudos
We loved it
perfect night out! it almost made you forget about the pandemic for a few hours bc you were in the empire hotel’s signature chic rooftop ambience. excellent food, drinks and waitstaff. can’t wait to return!
Just beautiful. Wish the menu had more of a variety for vegetarians. Great ambiance inside and out. Service was on point with pleasant staff. Will be back.
Beautiful night and a great space. The service was very good and the food was great.
Great value for money. The drinks and food prices were really reasonable. Beautiful ambiance but surprisingly not very much energetic environment more quiet than your usual rooftop. The views are gorgeous and overall a good visit.
A good spot for grabbing a drink and a small social gathering .
We did not realize it was inside when there were pictures advertising it being outside.
One of the best places I been visiting in NYC , totally recommended, service food and Drinks are excellent!!
Really great cocktails, super nice service, stunning views. Awesome atmosphere!
The food was very very good - the mahi tacos were unreal! Overall this is a very cute and trendy spot with good vibes. Service wasn’t bad just pretty slow and it wasn’t busy.
Not what I expected. Very basic menu, basic ambiance and basic service. I expected a more high end experience.
Food was delicious, drinks even better.
I have lived next door to the Empire Hotel for years but never knew they had a rooftop. It was a warm evening and so good to sit at comfortable banquettes in the fresh air with a city lights view. It was pretty well filled, mostly with young people. They serve drinks and snacks, but the snacks were really very good. Flatbreads, sliders, lots of good things to nibble on and we made it do for dinner. The help were very nice and efficient. I highly recommend this. There was an area that had a roof and an indoor space that was not used but it would be chilly to be out there if it were below 60's. I didn't see heat lamps but you might inquire if they are getting them.
Service was terrible. The waiter forgot our order on multiple occasions. We ended up waiting 30 mins for a drink, only for us to have get up go to the bar and order ourselves.
I had my ID as 21 and was with a 20 year old, we explicitly stated we were not drinking and just wanted to dine. We were turned away even though we had a reservation. Terrible service!
Great time! Nice view with a nice staff. Everything is socially distant.
