The One18 Empire restaurant is good but not remarkable. It is OK to visit one time but I would not consider to come back. They only have Canadian wines, which might be good from one side but bad from another. Red wines in Canada?.. May...More

The Lunch Steak Sandwiches are divine, and is known to have the best old fashions in the city! (they do the whole show smoking the glass on a plank etc etc)

Happy Hour from 3 to 7PM! Highlight was the exceptional service, House made Manhattans were very good. Wings were very tasty, but not always completely cooked. Bacon wrapped dates were a bit soggy. House cut fries were delicious. Comfortable ambiance. Good pre-theatre location.
