“very well done”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Me and a couple of mates came here last weekend. The service was exceptional, with efficient and witty bar staff - which is what you want at a bar/pub! We tasted some of the beers and had a steak each, which was cooked just the way I wanted it. A plus to Empire is that it is just across the road from the recently refurbished Crown complex, so if you wanted to kick on, more action is not too far away. This place is a great find and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to friends.

“Recommend!! Best restaurant in Perth so far”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

The Empire Bar & Restaurant is by far the best restaurant I have been to in perth yet. The quality of food, service, drinks, menu.. Even the serviettes and toilets. Not to mention the comfy eating area with a great atmosphere. Tonight we loved the mains as usual but decided to try the deserts as we already thought highly of the mains. Every desert (4) was amazing and will definitely be going back for a full course again. Others reviews mention high prices, we disagree and feel the prices are very good, especially for the quality of the whole experience. Overall, a great place, no criticism at all, will recommend to everyone eating out and I have no doubts they will experience the same as what I have. Thank you so much for providing a great restaurant!!!

“really enjoyable”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

On a very cold Saturday night we walked through the large outdoor area to an even larger indoor bar and restaurant, with great decor. Currently 7 entrees, 6 pizzas and 10 mains certainly sufficient to satisfy all tastes. Menu on their website. Our table shared dozen oysters with 3 fantastic dipping sauces. A winner. Main courses included a cooked to perfection sirloin steak, beef cheeks, quinoa risotto and a calzone. Typical Perth prices which shock eastern states visitors. Service was fine, even when it got busy after 8pm and a bit noisy. We'll certainly be back, particularly Tuesday nights $22 steak! Lots of free car parking is a bonus.

“Very Grand”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

Love this bar, its outdoor area is so nice for a relaxing sunday afternoon but also has the facilities for a friday or saturday night, which you don't get very often! Make sure you go and look at the toilets they are very elegant haha. They are quite strict with rules ie we got kicked out at exactly 7pm on a sunday night because we weren't wearing the appropriate clothes for there night regulations. Overall its a great bar for couples a couples lunch/dinner or friends catching up

“Mouthwateringly Delicious. Good Service.”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

My mother in law wanted to go to The Empire Bar for Mother’s Day lunch, and I am so glad she picked this restaurant.

The place is easy to get to with plenty of parking. To get to the restaurant you walk through the beer garden which is open with plenty of seating. The restaurant itself is tastefully decorated with a welcoming atmosphere. You have a choice of bench seating or chairs with both being comfortable.

We arrived 45min early and were expecting to be directed to the bar, but were pleasantly surprised when they showed us straight to our table without an issues.

The staff were welcoming, attentive, very helpful and always had a smile on their face. Now the food…it was to die for! To start with we order a platter to share with grilled meats, dips and bread. It was amazingly good and more than enough for the three of us. For mains we ordered the chicken breast on a bed of mashed pumpkin, spinach, puréed sweet peas and pesto sauce, the fish and chips and last but not least the steak sandwich. They were all cooked to perfection and mouthwateringly delicious. The price was a little on the high side but worth it for the generous serving size. I will defiantly being going back.
