Food was excellent service was great

It had been awhile since we'd been to this restaurant. The food was better than we remembered. The service was better than in the past. Over all a very pleasant dining experience. We will return.

We love this restaurant, from the gardens out front to the different dining rooms. We were seated quickly and our server took our drink order. Lunch time so ordered tea, several loose leafs teas, nice. Hot and sour soup was the best I've had. We ordered fragrant shrimp, governors chicken and Singapore beef. Entrees served with steamed rice. They also... More

I love the food at this restaurant. Very basic with reasonable prices. I typically recommend this restaurant to friends from out of town. Lunch is particularly good as the portions are plentiful and the prices very good. When I lived on the east side of Madison, I dined at the OTHER Imperial Garden on East Washington Avenue which is also... More

High quality at a reasonable price. We had carryout food. It was packaged appropriately and the taste did not suffer.

We made a reservation for 6:30 on Open Table for dinner on Valentine's Day. Not sure what having a reservation did because our name was on the list just like the walk-ins, and we waited in the foyer. We were then seated at a table nearest the service door, while two tables nearby sat empty for quite a while after... More

Thankfully there is one Chinese restaurant in town that is consistently good. They have a quite little bar area with a good, friendly bartender and low noise level. The manager, Karen, seems to never go home because she is always there to make sure things are going well and is very personable. We had an appetizer plate for four and... More

The owner and the staff of Imperial Gardens worked to have a successful party for my cousin's 50th birthday. They were courteous accommodating and the food was delicious!

My husband and I stopped in early New Year's Eve without a reservation and was seated immediately. Of course it helped it was only 4:00 in the afternoon. The ambience is one of style and sophistication. The booth we sat in afforded us privacy even though we were in a huge room with other people. Our waitress was well-versed in... More

My family (7 adults) went here to celebrate my birthday after attending the Badger football game. We called and made reservations. The service was horrible. We got our hors d'oeuvres before we got our drinks. We waited over an hour for our food and had to ask for a second round of drinks while we were waiting. When we finally... More
