Ten of us were staying at the Best Western Premiere this past weekend. The bartender recommended this restaurant - we're so glad he did! The restaurant was meticulous, upscale and welcoming. The food was freshly cooked, delicious and plentiful. Our server, Kelly, was a delight! She was very attentive, helpful and quick. We will return to this restaurant!

This is by far my favorite asian place to dine. The decor is beautiful, the staff is always super friendly, and the menu is quite large. It's great if you don't know what you are really in the mood for, since it has both sushi and asian specialties. Sunday is half price sushi day and going there is like eating... More

We were staying at the Country Inn & Suites close by and went here after trying the chinese rest. across the street (it was super horrible and we practically RAN from there- don't even know the name of it). Anyway, I am SO glad we pulled in here! It was awesome! The waitress (sorry we didn't get her name) was... More

I've heard good things from others, so I stopped in at lunchtime today after running some errands. The interior was clean and classy. The wait staff was effective, and service was fast, if not overly friendly. The mood music was a little different: sinofied versions of "Don't Cry for Me, Argentina" and "Auld Lang Syne." The complimentary fried noodles and... More

We went here on Christmas day, because we were traveling & it was open. We were pleasantly surprised by the authentic look of the place. The server was quick to offer drinks, even suggesting Shirley Temples to the kiddos. She offered suggestions for dishes we might like, and was spot on except for one dish. The sauteed spinach and fried... More

Great interior and food, the only flaw is that all the staff are hard to understand....but very pleasant. Great food! Try Fuji-Do if the restaurant is too busy. About 10 mins away, the interior is not as nice and there are not as many cooking styles, but they serve the best sushi I have ever tasted.

This was my first experience, and will not come again. I was dissatisfied with the food and the waitress. The lobster smelled very bad.

I've been to Empire about 5 times now and the food and service has been consistantly above average. Decor is asian contemporary and is very pleasant. The menu is roughly evenly diversified between Chinese, Japanese, and Thai cuisines. Portions are large enough for most appetites; however, this is one of the few asian restauraunts from which I regularly do not... More

This place sits alongside other steak houses such as Outback and Texas Roadside Grill. But this is in a league above those. Really good food - quality and quantitiy. The service was friendly and not hurried. And what exceptional value for such good quality. If you are in the area make sure you eat a meal there - and do... More
