You need to make a reservation at this restaurant - it is first class yet not thar expensive - if you leave the drink alone ! - the decor is fantastic and it is part of the Imperial Hotel - the service is first class...- efficient the staff very well turned out and the Union soup is to die for as is the Cheek and mashed potato - every thing is so good it is hard to know which way to turn. Another visit has to be on the cards.More

We wen there to try their famous breakfast. What a disasppointment!! If you rent a room in a remote village B&B room, you will get a much better food. Wekk, we went there to see the very place... afterwards we had to go and get...a breakfast elsewhere, In the other side I have to say the waiters were very polite and attentiveMore

Just a little bit off the usual path when walking around Prague is this hotel with its beautiful Art Decor interior. Beautiful ... and taking you a little back in time in the good and bad sense. But service was not bad and food was...good. Nothing special to mention ... but solid. Although a little pricy for what you get. But the interior design is well worth it.More

Lovely ambience, beautifully prepared food. Unfortunately, the service was the worst I've encountered. Waiter was inattentive. Requested bread 3 times over a 30 minute timespan. Requested 2nd glass of wine after having to obtain waiters attention. Asked for same white wine but received a different...one. Took 45 minutes for appetizers and another 1 hour and 15 minutes for main course. Asked why such a long wait and was told due to the appetizers. Oddly the table next to us also had appetizers and same main course, but only 20 minute wait. Waiter had also automatically added 10% tip without asking. As we had dined at another restaurant the previous night, owned by same, we were asked first and tipped more.More

I had an excellent breakfast here back in 1998. Never managed to come back. It was always fully booked for Dinner. We were 6 people from different countries and we each had a different main dish. We were all very happy with our choice. The...service was very good. The room is a piece of art! All in all really memorable experience. I would definitely come back againMore

We had dinner at the restaurant. I must say that the place itself is really beautiful! As for food- it was good but not exceptional. I must say though that we had a vegetarian meal, which is very nice that the restaurant has options already...at all even if not so many! So really would advise the place for a lovely evening in Prague!More

Bistronomic is the word contracted from Bistro (French café) and Gastronomic as fine dining, it is usually only applicable to some Brasseries or French restaurants in big cities or Paris... Café Impérial applies all the codes from these places.. unique decor (beautiful Art Deco-Art Nouveau...style), excellent very framed service where every staff has a specific task and attend to it very well and last but not least, "simple" folk food but revisited to make it refined. Food here is good, cooking is well executed and all is tasty overall, not Perfect but not far (chicken slighly undercooked and Vanilla ice cream could be better but not bad enough to be down about it). We spent a very nice evening and we will come back on our next Praha visit.More

I had the beef wellington for lunch and it tasted great. The service was good and the prices are quite fair.
