My husband was at a conference at the Empress Conference Centre and they were treated to lunch for 4 days. As he said it was always the same, just sandwiches, and not very good ones at that. On the Friday night they had a "Gala" night and it was certainly not worth the price we paid. The beef was extremely tough, the buffet would run out of food and took over half an hour to replace something.
I went to the Veranda restaurant and had a latte. They really need a better barrista because it was horrible, no foam at all. The view was amazing is about the only nice thing I could say.
All in all, for a place with the reputation of the Empress, I was extremely disappointed in the whole thing.
