Empire Steakhouse - 237 West 54 Street off of Broadway Ratings and Reviews
The food, service, ambiance were all great. The wine was good as well. You can never go wrong with Empire. We were running late to the restaurant leaving ya limited time for dinner and the staff were effective in serving our meal in a timely fashion for us to catch our show. Excellent!
Very disappointed with the service and the dessert. The waiters and manager stood around gawking at the female customers rather than focusing on servicing the tables. Our dessert was a price of cake and they served it to us frozen. Very disappointing for the scale of restaurant they claim to be.
We ordered from the Pre-Theater Dinner Menu. My family chose the sirloin NY Strip steak, filer Mignon, chicken parmigiana and lobster ravioli. All of us were very pleased with the 3 course meals we chose. The deserts we chose were equally fabulous! This is our third time eating in this establishment and we have always been pleased!
Not inexpensive. Got the surf & turf and was surprised at the large size of the lobster tail. I was excited until I realized I needed pliers to seperate the shell and a much sharper knife to cut into that tough over cooked tail. Other than that, we did have to ask for more dressing for the bone dry, $12 plate of lettuce, I mean Ceasar Salad. Won't be back there. Thanks.
I met here with some out of town friends based on the proximity to my work. They are quite picky eaters however empire has a great menu that appealed to everyone’s taste buds. The service and food were both exceptional and the management and waitstaff made our dinner enjoyable. My friends are looking forward to bringing their family after their show this weekend!
Absolutely oustanding. Brought my wife here for her birthday before seeing the show across the street. We had the porterhouse for 2 and creamed spinach, porterhouse was the best ive ever had cooked to perfection.
Service was great, the whole staff came over to sing happy birthday to my wife! Definitely one of the better steak houses in the city.
Ordered Tanqueray martini straight up, extra dry. After 10 minutes waiter returned, referred to our order as "Tangeray" (as in tangerine). Said they were coming. Another five minutes and he asked if we wanted our "Tangeray" with tonic! Tonic in a martini!! He finally brought the drinks, which were not very dry. What kind of a waiter doesn't know what a dry martini is?
As for the rest of the meal, it was so-so.
I brought a party of 5. We had filet mignon, lamb chops and lobster ravioli from the Pre-Theater Menu. All we very satisfied.Our selection from the dessert menu was cheesecake, chocolate mousse and carrot cake. The whole meal was exceptionally good. Can't wait to go back!
Restaurant had good reviews so I decided to try. Great welcoming service and great table service. I went for the steak and was disappointed with the temperature. I ordered Medium. Only half of the steak was properly cooked. The reminder was undercooked. Server offered to re-cook the remainder, however, by that time I was disgusted with the fact that it was undercooked that I simply asked for the check. High end steak restaurants don't typically make this error and considering there are so many to choose from in NYC, I won't return to Empire.
I went to Empire Steakhouse on a date with my partner as it was restaurant week, we were right there, and I was too lazy to search for a place.
We had the option of being seated inside (at the bar) or outside, right on the street (which was the front entrance of the hotel).
The service was good. The waiter was attentive and patient. The appetizers were good, nothing spectacular.
The sirloin steak and filet mignon were both really small (but that may just be the restaurant week menu) and very tasty.
The mashed potatoes were excellent. The dessert was alright (it was really heavy). We had the chocolate mousse and the tiramisu.
Went here for restaurant week, and was not disappointed. Great deal for a steak. Service was a little slow, but understandably since it was busy. Plus, the waiter comped a round of drinks for us because of it, so really not a big deal. Highly recommend the Cesar salad or calamari both were delicious!
Was greeted by the hostess when we walked into the restaurant. Waiter was attentive. Once he informed us that another waiter would take over we rarely saw him. So, we were left to our own devices. The food was so-so. Once you serve me instant mashed potatoes I'm through.
The rib-eye steak was not that great which was disappointing. The salmon was good though. My husband's meal was incorrect and then took long to come so the waiter was nice enough to provide us with free drink to make up for it. Overall I would try eating here again.
My friend and I attended Empire during the Restaurant week in NYC and were gravely disappointed! For the appetizer I had the mozzarella and tomato (affectionately known as caprese - but not listed on the menu as most decent restaurant details) and it was just meh...a 3/8ths inch thick slice tomato completely over shadowing the paltry mozzeralla slices on the plate...my friend had the eggplant parm which was ok but not hot...it came out very quickly which obviously means it wasn't fresh. The entrees were terrible...we both ordered the filet mignon, medium rare...and we got was down right diner/dog food...on a cold/room temperature dish, we both received an "ice cream scoop" of the world's blandest luke warm mash potatoes...yellow/under cooked/cold/unflavorful broccoli..and the worst filet mignon i have ever seen and tasted anywhere. The filet was burnt and completely dry and had fatty niblets around the main piece. The food looked lost in the large white diner plates we were served. We returned the plates for a second try and it was worst that the first. I explained this to the maitre'd (twice) and he seemed baffled...his lack of words or rebuttle basically gave credence to everything I said. Lastly the dessert was ok. We had the chocolate mousse and tiramisu...nothing too fancy with a a small ice cream scoop of whip cream with a dime size sliver of strawberry, with the pastries on a thin grid of chocolate syrup...again they came out quickly and seemingly not fresh. The restaurant did the right thing by taking the entrees off the bill but they did charge me $9.95 for a bottle of San Pellegrino. I've always thought restaurant week was a time for them to shine and get the masses to revisit well established venues with great food. Empire Steakhouse served a lackluster dinner with secondary/tertiary cuts of meats and veggies on a $42 prix fix menu making for a highly disappointing dining experience for foodies of all types.
