As we had booked for the show at the Winter Gardens, we took advantage of the 'Show& Dine' offer to take the dinner at the Empress. I must start by saying that this is not a restaurant I would have considered if I had been looking for a venue in Blackpool, and I can continue by confiring that it will... More

Decided to come here for dinner prior to seeing Dirty Dancing at the Opera House. We were greeted by the waiter who showed us to our table. As we only had an hour he speedily took our order to ensure we had enough time to enjoy our meal. All the food was really nice. Steak was cooked perfectly. The service... More

Timing and price was right before a show, lovely surrounding and the wine list was was nice. Two of our party had to send back their Salmon as it was cold , other than that the steak was excellent. Lighting in the restaurant is just right and staff were welcoming and friendly . Could be improved by having it's own... More

Booked this restaurant after recommendation. It was fabulous. The food was lovely. The service was first class & everyone had a brilliant time. Party of 20 all with different meals and everyone enjoyed their meals. I don't know how anyone could complain about this wonderful winter gardens restaurant.

We ate here on the Friday of the punk festival weekend and while the food was OK, the waitress who brought out the food had a distinct lack of customer care skills. She dumped the food on our table, didn't ask if we would like anything else and didn't even crack a smile. I watched her do the same to... More
