LOVE this place! Never been disappointed. I've recommended several of my business colleague, with positive feedback. There are so many steakhouses in NYC, but they do it right at Empire Steak.

Steak was cooked to perfection. Service very nice. But decor is a bit "grand" for a steakhouse and slightly too "plush" for my taste. Overlooking that, the steak was 100% better than Del Frisco.

I had a party of 11 birthday dinner, everyone was very pleased and most satisfied with the food, service and style. In the US Marine Corps evaluation system the highest grade you can receive is NOTEWORTHY. Without question the Empire Steak House deserves a NOTEWORTHY.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Empire Steak House. We love the old school New York feel and service. The food was fantastic...our only concern was the noise coming from the upper balcony. There was a private party taking place and our seating was just below the staircase. For the price of our meal it was a bit annoying to hear the partying loud music and noise coming from upstairs. For such a lovely restaurant and venue it did put a damper on the evening. The regular restaurant music was fine...it was just the loud booming music from the upper level that was distracting and did not allow proper communication during dinner. The waitstaff was very friendly and accommodating.

We enjoyed our dining experience at Empire. Service was outstanding Food was delicious typical premium steakhouse fare. One issue, I had ordered my bone in sirloin medium well, with just a little pink, but came out closer to the rare side. I hate sending meat back to cook further as it then comes back too well done in most cases.

Excellent food and service. Solid wine list. A pricey spot to celebrate but worth it for the special occasion. We were a party of four and everyone left happy. All plates were enough to share so we got to sample every dish brought to the table. Not a bad item on the menu.
