Operated by the award-winning Big Night Entertainment Group, Empire is a 14,000-square-foot boutique Asian restaurant and lounge located in the Seaport area of Boston, just steps from the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. Empire offers a tantalizing menu from executive Chef Kevin Long (Tosca, Shrine, Red Lantern, GEM, Scorpion Bar), stylized interior and ethereal atmosphere that will transport guests to another world. With a capacity of 600 guests and three 40-seat private dining rooms that open up to one large private event space, Empire can accommodate groups of all sizes for receptions and seated dinners.

"The food at Empire was just OK, and VERY expensive. We ordered the lobster scallion pancake, which had no lobster and very little flavor. They very graciously removed that item from our bill. The chicken and veg dumplings were delicious, hot and crispy and the short rib moo shu was moist and flavorful.
All in all, I'd say the food is OK, and the service was excellent, attentive and gracious.

"We dined with another couple, and sat on the patio on a lovely June evening. Great food, service and terrific experience! Especially loved the corn and lobster soup and hanger steak and truffle fries."
