The ambiance on this rooftop is fabulous! Food and cocktails are delicious and our server was attentive.
Delicious food, nice views!
I absolutely LOVE Empire rooftop. It was the perfect weather, they make some of the best frosé in NYC and my fiancé and I thoroughly enjoyed the tots. We will absolutely be coming back here. Highly recommend this location.
Staff was very kind! Appetizers were a good portion and drinks were great!
I love this place
Despite the restaurant being empty, they took to
much time to serve me, I felt lost in the back, so I asked to move to the bar, so I had faster service, but in general they are friendly, the food is tasty, I just found the value a little high because the portions are small…
I don’t recommend this rooftop at all. The location is great however, the coordination on the rooftop and the service is terrible. Their rooftop froze couldn’t be ordered because the machine broke. We went Saturday at 6pm. They had one waiter for the entire rooftop, so understaffed and the waiter we had was so rude. We also asked for chairs multiple times and finally when my friend and I were sitting on the floor they brought it over. The food was okay. It was just a bad experience because of the service, running out of drinks, not enough chairs (even though we made a reservation) and they were accommodating only after we really asked multiple times. To be really honest, there’s a lot of rooftops in NYC so I would definitely recommend going to another one. It’s not the end of the world.
Great Rooftop. Love that it's from Gossip Girl & that they have a Gossip Girl drink. Got a picture right under the Hotel Empire sign too! Loved it.
Thank you 🙏👑🥂🎉🎊🎶🎵🍷♥️🤗🌞🎂 my 50th BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION WAS AMAZING WE WILL COMEBACK..
My favorite rooftop setting. Always a vibe
Fantastic, tasty drinks and small plates. Love the rooftop!
I asked the server for their bistro fries twice and was ignored. They heard I didn’t want it anymore. Also they didn’t explicitly state at the beginning of service that we couldn’t split the bill and only two cards could be used. Ambience was nice but service could be better. I was visiting from Maryland and probably will go to another rooftop unless service is improved.
Drinks and apps came out quickly and tasted great. Really nice rooftop experience.
If you can get to the tippy top roof deck it’s beautiful and sunny!! The food is actually yummy and came quickly. The surroundings are super nice. The service could be better but well worth it to go there for drinks/happy hour/finger food!!
I am a frequent customer of the Empire Hotel Rooftop Bar and the experience is always a very positive one ! Obidio and his staff are outstanding ! Courteous , friendly and very helpful . We always feel welcome !
Excellent service! Great spot
Great place for a date or a girls night. Good, cocktails, wine, and good finger food!
Drinks were great especially the rooftop frose. The staffs are very professional & kind. The outdoor scenery was fantastic with beautiful views. Great vibe for a night out with friends. The food was small but it's worth it. I will come back again.
We had a great experience at the Empire! We were seated near the Hotel Empire sign for some great pictures. We enjoyed our cocktails and the chips and guacamole, Korean chicken wings, and mahi mahi tacos were all tasty! We had great service as well.
Wonderful place to hang out with friends after work. I tried three cocktails: Empire Sunset, Jalapeño margarita and Paloma. I enjoyed all three but Empire Sunset was tasty, looked pretty and my favorite.
The place, food and service was amazing to spend time and have a couple of bites and drinks with a great company!
The food was delicious but the service was mediocre. The servers seemed to be MIA. It wasn’t only my table, because I could see other people looking for their server to ask for the check because nobody was regularly going to tables.
Loved the service. There was always staff nearby if we needed anything, and they all had positive attitudes. Location is great too!
Interesting experience. Last time I was here, place used to be a club. Nice to be here in a lounge setting
Beautiful View & Vibe
It was great service. Beautiful surrounding. Wish they had more of a dance/lounge atmosphere.
Nice place, but the service, food, drinks and view all fell short of my expectations
I had a lovely dinner with my boyfriend during his birthday weekend. I would definitely return. The fries and Asian wings were absolutely perfect!
Great experience. It was my second time here and both times were so fun! I went on a Sunday night so it wasn't very full but it was still lively. The service was great, the fries were a good late-night snack, and I highly, highly recommend the Shanghai margarita. I will def go back!
Great time, great food, great veiws. In short Just come
I loved visiting the empire rooftop lounge! We went on a Thursday and the vibe was nice and it was very clean. The staff is very accommodating and they give great service.
Intimate seating for a date. Good value on the drinks
Lovely evening with a beautiful view. Great drinks
Great vibes and view! Yummy food and drinks.
A wonderful place to catch up with friends with good eats and ambiance. Could be a weekly regular spot.
Beautiful views! The food is overpriced for what it is and the service is subpar.
I love this place!!! The ambiance is great 👍🏼
They followed Covid protocol very seriously.
All the shared plates were plenty. We ordered the Calamari, Charred Mahi Tacos, Pork belly bao , loved the Flatbread Margarita 💖👌 all were delicious and fair priced 👌
I will definitely recommend this place.
I can’t wait to go back!!
Fantastic view accompanied by great food, service and drinks!
Nice ambiance, drinks generous, attentive service. Food just ok.
The food was great! Our drinks were perfect! The ambience was very relaxing and the view was beautiful.
