The wait staff is amazingly attentive, given how busy they are. Very comfortable and ok food. There is a prix fixe 3 course meal mid-week that is incredibly reasonable. None of us tried it the night we were there, however. The hangar steak we had would have been better with some (more) of the described sauce. The appetizer featuring local... More

We made reservations at Imperial for our 20th anniversary celebration. The wait staff is great and the food was wonderful. We enjoyed everything and would recommend this place for a fine dining experience. White table cloths, great wine list, scrumptious food and a great desert. We enjoyed our time and made a great memory.

We visit the gold country several times a year and have always enjoyed dinner at the Imperial. This time we decided to try brunch. I ordered Eggs Benedict and found myself with a very small, dried up muffin, an o.k. egg but the bright yellow sauce was skimpy and not all that good. My companions were not that impressed with...

What an interesting place. We booked time for the post-weekend crowd and were very pleased. We needed peace and quiet and that's what we got. The room very clean and well furnished and had a balcony overlooking the 'down town' and provided us a place to hang out. With No TV, phone or other distractions, it provided a good respite....

Great food, atmosphere and service. Will definitely return when in the area. Just a short scenic drive from home base (Amador Harvest Inn in Plymouth) and well worth it. Enjoy!!

I love this place, quiet atmosphere, high ceilings in a renovated gold rush building. The food is comparable to the finest cuisine in the Bay area. Good prices and precious desserts. MMMMM!

We had excellent service! Food was fresh and well prepared. There were 6 of us & we split many things so we could try more. They were very accommodating. Roasted polenta and beet salad was excellent. We closed the place!!!
