Steakhouse
Empire Steak House, conveniently located at 237 west 54 street near Broadway, showcases modern décor 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!

Went for restaurant week dinner. The food was delicious, particularly the steak, potatoes and the salmon, and the portions were generous. The cocktails were a little heavy on the ice but tasted good. The cheesecake and coffee were ok. The service was top notch. The atmosphere is very nice. I would dine there again.

Good points: service was swift. Salad was dressed nicely. Bad points: server wore his mask as a mouth/chin strap. Not good. Tomato chunks on salad were just a red item. Horrid tomatoes. Bread served is an embarrassment. Poor quality and stale, as well. Restaurant Week the problem? Does management think this meal would entice me to return? Never. Salmon was prepared well and a good size portion. Broccoli was ample and fine. The other side: instant mashed potatoes? Instant? Simply insane and unacceptable. Chicken parm was certainly a pre-breaded, chicken slab. Not a pounded fresh chicken breast. Pasta and sauce were fine. It made me wonder if there is an Executive Chef checking anything served. Then the final straw: there is no bathroom in the restaurant and instead you're directed to the attached hotel's one-for-all restroom. Outrageous. I really felt cheated. Go anywhere else. Stay away from this place.

Started with the Caesar salad and the Empire platter. Then had the porterhouse, hash browns, creamed spinach, sautéed onions. Finished with the cheese cake and strudel.

The cheese cake was very good. The steak was ok but nothing special. Everything else could have come from the diner down the block - perfectly fine but nothing to write home about.

I took my granddaughter to NYC for her 11th birthday! I made reservations at Empire State. The service was excellent and the servers were very attentive and treated her like a Princess! I told them it was her birthday when I made the reservation and the servers all came and sang happy birthday to her and she was delighted. We had the Hot Platter as an appetizer, it was cooked to perfection (grilled shrimp, baked clams, and stuffed mushrooms); both my filet mignon and hers were cooked to perfection! Great experience!!

I thought that the atmosphere was OK, and the service was good. However, our steak was just OK and the ambiance was mediocre. We had to ask to have the music turned down. It was a little expensive for the quality and overall experience.

Empire Steakhouse was such an amazing experience. We were not expecting outdoor dining options when we arrived for our dinner reservations but they created such a beautiful candle-lit outdoor ambiance that we jumped at the option for the outdoor table. It was truly memorable.

Our waiter gave us top notch attention. The filet mignon and the bone-in ribeye were the tastiest steaks I’ve had in years. Hostess was so accommodating to find us the right table that accommodated social distancing. Hats off to the management and the employees for what was a truly memorable dining experience that we will cherish for years to come.

I strongly recommend that anyone who is looking for an outstanding dining experience go to Empire Steakhouse. I will definitely be back again!!!!

I found this restaurant after I learned Mastros was book. I'm so glad I did! The staff were EXTREMELY accommodating and friendly. Made us feel very welcome. The food was cooked to perfection. We ordered 2 tomahawks and a rib eye. The mixed drinks and cocktails were tasty as well and not too sweet. Wild blueberry was my favorite!! Our experience was worth every penny and this restaurant owes me and my friends nothing more because they gave it all!! It was the perfect ending to a girls weekend and we cannot wait to return!!! We also got to witness a marriage proposal. The energy was amazing!

I took my husband to EMPIRE's E.50th St location two years ago for his birthday and have sworn I'd be back. So this year I made reservation and erroneously made it for the W54th St location. I was so scared that the service and food would not be the same. I was wrong. In fact I'll say is was more delicious and the staff was amazing. Our waiter was attentive and paid attention to detail. I had forgotten to order a piece of cake to sing happy birthday so as we were preparing to leave out comes the waiter and staff singing HBD.

I will be back when I'm ready to spend another three hundred on dinner and drinks.

Horrendous Mac&Cheese, outback would’ve done better. Extremely salty lobster ravioli. Couldn’t follow instructions for Valentine’s Day surprise and spelled valentine wrong on the plate.

The food was good not outstanding, but good. The staff was courteous and attentive. The only issue I had was that there were quite a few people there not adhering to the business casual dress code and contributing to a less than ideal atmosphere. Several of the customers were on FaceTime at the tables, and playing loud videos on their phones. I am used to this restaurant being much more upscale than it was.
