The food and service at the Imperial were quite good. Note that entrees do not come with any sides though there were quite a selection to chose from. The fennel side was really tasty, though I would have preferred to have the aioli on the side rather than the large serving spooned on top of the fennel. The mushrooms and bone marrow were excellent. As the evening progressed, the noise level increased dramatically, so probably not the place for that romantic rendezvous.
