Pre/post Theatre
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!

We were treated like royalty. Our waiter was so attentive and made us feel like we were being taken care of. We celebrated our 15 year anniversary here and at the end we did not want dessert but our waiter gave us free shots. It was greatly appreciated. I would definitely come back and I highly recommend this place.

We were not expecting much during COVID-19 times and yet, Empire Steak house was able to accommodate a very special anniversary date night! From the personable and attentive staff to the delicious food and quaint ambiance outside, Empire will be on my must do list when in Manhattan! Thank you again for a wonderful anniversary night.

Empire Steakhouse is one of my favorite steakhouses in NYC. I've only been once and will certainly become a regular. The steaks were phenomenal...we shared the Emperor's steak, the Porterhouse, and a Tomahawk. The staff was very helpful and made us feel like we were eating at home...except the food was professionally prepared, of course.

We received outstanding service! Everyone were nice and accommodating!

My husband ate the Chilean Sea Bass and I ate the lobster with garlic steamed spinach. Both were scrumptious!

We’re looking forward to our next visit.

My wife had the ribeye and I had the NY strip. Both were cooked to perfection. Meat had great flavor, especially the ribeye. Good cocktails and great service. We split a house salad (which was a little skimpy) and shared a side of creamed spinach. Nice but basic selection of wines by the glass. We had our dinner in the bar at a table alongside Broadway. The ambiance was awesome. Our server ( from Albania) was very attentive and friendly. All in all, a very enjoyable evening. We’ll be back

We chose Empire Steakhouse due to its proximity to the theater, as we were going to a show and my husband was on crutches due to a knee injury. When we arrived we were told there was no table immediately available despite our reservation. We opted for a high top near the bar. Our waiter was great, even helped with storing the crutches. We ordered salads which were just okay. My caesar salad had no anchovies, dressing seemed out of a bottle and there was no visible parmesan except for 1 shaving. The steaks were just okay. I asked for mine to be cooked medium and it was rare. My husband likes his rare and it was. Prices on the menu aren't cheap by any means and the food should have been better prepared. Thankfully our waiter was terrific so that really helped make the meal pleasant. If you're looking for a real NY Steakhouse experience, go elsewhere.

We had a decent time and the food was ok. Open table needs to be more clear that the oyster special they are highlighting is for the bar only. Honestly this special in red bold letters is what made me choose this restaurant. I expected something nicer based on their prices but this is essentially a nice hotel restaurant as it is attached to the lobby of the Hilton garden inn. We had a nice waiter, I thought the food could have been better for the prices and was very surprised to not be offered a coat check. Also the bathroom was not in the restaurant but in the hotel lobby next door.
