After the success of our first location on W. 52Nd St., We are proud to bring the Empire experience to a second location. Boasting a sleek, modern design with high ceilings and white marble bar, Empire Steak House on W. 54Th offers a comfortable, trendy experience, without forsaking the high-quality food and exceptional service that we are known for. At 4,500 square feet, it can easily accommodate 230 guests for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as private events. Similar to our original location, our menu features our succulent signature Porterhouse for two, dry-aged for 21 to 28 days for optimal flavor. Other mouthwatering cuts are also certified USDA Prime and dry-aged. Delectable seafood is also available, including our buttery, melt-in-your mouth Chilean sea bass, salmon, and yellowfin tuna. Diners love our side dishes, from German potatoes to creamed spinach. They complement our meat and fish to a tee. The wine lists features more than 235 bottles, including sought-after California vintages.

Everything was wonderful. The shrimp was crisp, lobster cooked perfectly and the chicken was superb. My only complaint was there was so much food I couldn't finish it all!

When we got here, we wanted a New York City style steakhouse and NOT another plain Jane, cookie cutter nationally franchised pre-cut steakhouse. The concierge at the Row NYC recommended this place, and boy, he didn't under-represent. Great throwback decor. The servers were very New York, although the service was exceptional (for those who remember when most New Yorkers had... More

Our meal was delicious. Our server Tim was very attentive and we appreciated his attention to detail. Be prepared, it's expensive, but it's also very classy and if you want a romantic, delicious steak dinner, you will enjoy Empire.

This was our first time to the Empire Steak House and we were very happy with our choice. The service was outstanding and our food was very good. Even though we were at a steak house, we had the lobster and the filet mignon. Both were cooked perfectly. We shared our appetizers of stuffed mushroom and beefsteak tomatoes and fresh... More

Overall a good place to eat. Service was good as to be expected. Disappointed on ribeye steak compared to the filets that others had. Ribeye had much fat and little meat for the price. Get the fitet when dinning here.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
