This restaurant has the best steak I've ever eaten...I had heard many great things about it, and surely enough. The vegetables were also delicious, especially the cream of spinach, and the desserts were phenomenal as well. Yes, it is pricey, well worth the most spent. The service is excellent and I was very impressed. Empire Steakhouse is definitely a must... More

They made a massime mistake with my credit card charging me twice the amount for the dinner and after I advised them they refused to solve this and stopped answering my emails. Such a bad customer service they have, like the food.

What a great surprise - we arrived late and stayed at the hotel next to the Empire. We had a salat and wagyu burger and the quality was very good. The wine list was extensive and lots of magnum bottles available. Unfortunately we didn't have the chance to try it out but will do next time !!!

We were at a nearby hotel looking for breakfast. This place had a big sign out for its buffet breakfast. The service was so-so. Fast and totally impersonal. Getting a second cup of tea was a challenge. The buffet selection was barely average. And getting someone's attention for the check was almost a battle. This is not a place we'd... More

This is the second time we have been there. The first time was in June and we were disappointed in the service. However we were just there in November and it was perfect. Service was excellent, food delightful and wine they suggested for meal was perfect. My husband and I had a wonderful evening and can't wait to go back.... More

I went to empire steakhouse a few days ago for breakfast with my family and they offered a wide variety of choices. The steakhouse had everything you can think of for breakfast. Scrambled eggs, bacon which was delicious and also their coffee was great. Not like in other places. Also they offered menus for people that don't prefer buffet style... More

We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn which is connected, so we tried the steak house for breakfast. The buffet looked OK. However, we prefer fresh eggs. My spinach feta omlette was quite nice. My husbands scrambled eggs looked the same as that offered on the buffet. Service was extremely slow and not friendly. At a price of $47.91 pre-tip... More

We had matinee show tickets for Holiday Inn at the Roundabout@studio 54. The Empire Steakhouse is right across the street. We were greeted by a delightful gentleman and given a window table. We opted for the Prix Fixe lunch which included soup/or salad, entree and dessert. Our party tried both the New England Clam Chowder soup and the greens salad... More

Empire Steak House, conveniently located at 237 west 54 street near Broadway, showcases modern decor in a classy, but trendy atmosphere. The all-white marble bar and sprawling dining room provide an additional air of sophistication. While Empire's steaks are acclaimed for its famous dry-aged porterhouse for two, the rest of the vast menu is equally stellar, featuring a wide range of fresh seafood such as 4-to 5-lb lobsters, Chilean Sea Bass, Salmon, Yellow Fin Tuna, towering seafood platters, and much more. The eatery offers a highly selective wine list and features many of California's most sought after vintages. The Zagat rated restaurant is owned and operated by the Sinanaj family. The Sinanaj's success dates back to their first restaurant opening of Empire Steak House in 2010. The space is 4,500 square feet and can accommodate 230 guests for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, private rooms available!

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
