I'll start with the cakes and other sweets that great you at the door...AMAZING! Another great first impression are the highly polished (i.e. gleaming, clean!) chrome and mirrored surfaces. While the Empire definitely has a diner feel to it, it's also a fun place to take a large family crowd, as the menu has something for everyone, especially the children.... More

This was by far the worst service I've ever had at this restaurant. No reason no reason coffee no water at the table. The food quality was horrible and the waitress was unfriendly. I do not recommend this place to anyone.

The most surprising aspect of this restaurant is that no matter what time of day you come in, or how many people are in your party, the food is always good, hot and presented well. Even when its crowded, the sound level never seems too loud. This is a good place for meetings, as the staff is always ready to... More

This neighborhood dinner has been the go to place for Sunday morning breakfast for years. The truth is that the place is good for breakfast or Dinner any day of the week. The desserts are homemade on the premises. For all of you dessert lovers "They are to die for". I can see Lemon meringue pie now.
