Just an ordinary burger, nothing bad, nothing exceptional. Service was quick but sloppy and my 1st burger didn’t have all the fillings! Quickly sorted out but more to get rid of us quickly I feel as the Steak House diners were eating in the same restaurant. This place was ok for a quick dinner after a busy day in NY.

We went to the burger place on the 2nd floor, but we had lunch at the stake house on the 1st floor due to worker shortage. People were working hard and food was excellent. Great value!

The Empire Burger House and Steak House share the same premises with the Burger House on he 2nd floor. If siting outside be sure to request the Burger House Menu which is less formal and more reasonable. We enjoyed a causal dinner outside including a burger, fried chicken sandwich and a salad. All very good. Onion rings were outstanding, the truffle fries over-priced for what was provided. On the Burger menu nice selection of beers, wines and cocktails all reasonably priced by NYC standards.

There are multiple hotels in the immediate vicinity thus if desiring a casual late night option in Midtown, not to be missed.

Nice quiet upstairs space. We were offered the Restaurant Week menu, but stayed with the burger and chicken sandwich offerings. Great, red hot fries. Good quality for the price.

Dead. Like completely dead inside except for the hostess. Tired decor. I felt bad for them. The waiter was summoned from the steakhouse below to serve us. He disappeared after some time and we didn’t see him again. The order was wrong - I ordered an Empire Cheeseburger and we received an Emperor Burger. For myself I ordered a Zesty Burger. Both came in with American cheese - one was to have pepper jack and one with cheddar. The burgers were okay, but they felt like Shake Shack burgers.
