This was our third time here from out of town. Excellent food and excellent value. The charcuterie is the best! The staff was professional and attentive.

outstanding dining, service, food, great place to eat...
Everything was great!! Cedi our waiter did a great job and was very friendly! I would recommend the Empire to anyone.
amazing, the best restraunt in town. prices are very reasonable. they have steak to hamburgers.
We love this restraunt! The staff are all very friendly and service is wonderful! The food is always delicious and the live piano music makes for a romantic evening.
Fantastic as always. We get so few opportunities to go out to eat as a babysitter is difficult to come by. When we do go eat, however, Empire is always an option as it never lets us down. Food and service are over the top. I'd like a bigger wine selection (glass) but what they have is still good and priced right. Plus it's right across from the hottest nightcap spot in Tiffin so it's a nobrainer.
Great meal again!! Always a pleasure! We will definitely be returning!
Outstanding dining, incredible atmosphere, great specials. This little gem of a place is well worth a visit....Everyone can afford to go h
Great evening meal with seven out-of-town guests. They were all impressed with the quality of food and excellent service. The lovely piano music was an extra added bonus!
Tapas were ok. Dinner vegetables were undercooked for both myself and my girlfriend. She ordered salmon and had one bite and did not care for. Manager came over and was condescending and I said she does not like it. She eats salmon at restaurants and at home but did not like theirs. Manager apologized but still charged us. I said if you gonna charge me for this than pack it to go so I can see if my dogs would eat it. I would not recommend this restaurant.
Simply love this place
Fantastic service, meal and ambiance. A true Tiffin gem!
Went there on a date to celebrate, albeit late, Valentine’s Day. The food is always great if you don’t mind paying. This place is worth a trip every few months or so.
My wife and I ate here before a concert at the Ritz Theatre. The building is stunning, especially for a fan of 1920’s design. The ambiance is intimate and very pleasant. The staff made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. Our waitress’s recommendations were all very good and our dinner and cocktails were well crafted and balanced. We had a wonderful evening and will definitely return when in the Tiffin area.
138 is our new favorite hang out because it's convenient, affordable and creative. We had a lovely time celebrating Gwen's birthday!
Exceptional in every way. Impressive in every way.
Very delicious steak and the shrimp was great as well.
Love this place very good menu and atmosphere, an excellent addition to the dining choices one has in Tiffin
Our experience at the Empire was wonderful. The mood, music and food combine for a relaxing and tasty dinner. Our server Kate was attentive and helpful and the food was delicious. This was our second "date" night experience, and we will undoubtedly go there again.
Fantastic! Salad was great. Scallops were wonderful.
I attended the Valentines dinner with my wife of 15 years. First, we were greeted at the door and welcomed to the restaurant. We arrived about 5 minutes prior to our reserved time, but waited 15 minutes to be seated. I guess I have old school expectations when it comes to reservations. If my reservation is at 6:00, then I should have a table ready for me at 6:00. It may be they overbooked because it was Valentines day, but I would thought they would have took that into consideration. Secondly, they stated that it was going to be a candlelight dinner with live piano to set they mood for the Valentines evening. The candlelight was tea lights in shot glasses, something you can find at any chain restaurant. Thirdly, there was no live music, it was only a radio track playing over the speakers. Lastly, when we were seated we were seated so close to another couple that we all felt like we were joining each others conversation. Not really the romantic setting your would hope for on Valentines day. The food was decent, but not spectacular and the prices were reasonable. My wife and I decided that it was good enough for a once a year visit.
Brought my girlfriend for dinner to celebrate Valentines Day. Atmosphere was perfect. Food was perfect. Service was top notch. She absolutely loved it! Fantastic evening! Thank you so much! Definitely will recommend and will be back!
Pleasant atmosphere with nicely set tables arranged giving room to move between. Service was good, soft piano music playing in the background. Was there for lunch, food was very good with good proportions for the price, with the exception of the fries that are soaked in pickle brine, we both agreed they were overcooked and that took away the taste of the brine
The host was very pleasant and Kelly our waitress was great.
I love this restaurant! Been here many times and each time isn't a disappointment!!! The food has been wonderful and it is a nice restaurant in the Tiffin location.
I always enjoy my dining experience at Empire 138. The atmosphere is welcoming and the service is friendly. The four-course meal with paired wines, is an excellent touch. I also enjoy how the manager is Hands-On and willing to create dessert table side. I highly recommend anyone to try a fine dining experience at Empire 138.
Another great dining experience! The halibut was superb!
Another wonderful meal at The Empire. Great selections for the specials.
As usual, dining at Empire was a great experience. Awesome food, great ambiance and friendly service, what more you can ask for!!
Always a delightful evening. The good, atmosphere, piano music. All of it just make it a really enjoyable evening.
I took my beautiful wife out to celebrate privately and we couldn’t be more pleased. Our waitress Kate was attentive and friendly with extensive knowledge of the menu. We had halibut with risotto,micro greens ,and spinach that was perfect! I have been here three times and it is worth it! Definitely recommend it!
I have eaten at 138 many times, have yet to be disappointed with the food. Awesome.
We loved the food,service, and it is a beautiful restaurant. The staff was great and knowledgeable of the menu. The food was delicious and done in a timely manner. It was just a little expensive but have no regrets!
Service was slow and they did not respond to a special request . I was disappointed with my experience overall
We here in Tiffin are so fortunate to enjoy this beautiful restaurant in our downtown! Super ombiance. If you have a chance try it for lunch.
Thank you Mike and staff for creating a fun place to gather.
this place is amazing. best place in town. prices are very good. the view is great. there was a gentleman playing the piano. we are so lucky to have such a place in tiffin. 10 out 10.
A stellar way to celebrate 3 generations of birthdays. Refined food in a trendy setting with attentive and friendly staff. I look forward to my next visit.
We enjoyed our evening thoroughly! Good food, nice atmosphere, and friendly and skilled wait staff. Can’t believe we were in Tiffin, Ohio!
Our first time there and we were not overly impressed. Seasonal beers out of stock. Noise level prevented us from hearing the waiter announce the specials even when asking the waiter to come in closer. Slow service on bar items, orders being taken, after being delivered and had to ask several times for items to be refilled. Food was good so will probably try this place again but all for seating on the other side. All seating on the same side as the bar was very cold everytime the door was opened. Made the dining experience uncomfortable and rushed.
