Information from the business

Established in 1998, Empire Grill has become the city's most dynamic meeting and eating place. The secret? Superb service and a lively atmosphere backed by the Byward Market's busiest kitchen. Our story is steak. Empire Grill is the only Gold Member

We had a great experience here. We ordered 3 different steaks and all of them were great. I like my done medium rare and it was done to perfection. The pepper sauce was also quite delicious. the side orders were perfect, too. Great ambiance, good service, friendly staff.

My first visit was with a group of nine out of town visitors who universally loved the food and atmosphere. They were so impressed with the service that they conveyed their appreciation to the manager before leaving.

For my part, I thoroughly enjoyed the beef, bison and elk carpaccio and the perfectly cooked rib eye steak. This is a top notch steak house and the pricing reflects this. Highly recomended.

It doesn't attract the late-night restaurant chefs and staffers as it once did, but this popular New York-ish bistro/bar/club remains a desirable stop. The martinis are dry, the company congenial, the food piquant and mildly venturesome. You might find duck quesadillas or bruschetta for starters, then segue to the likes of Thai chicken curry, a duck breast dusted with cocoa, or Southwestern... more

Beautiful dining ambience with a modern look. Came here on a Saturday evening, surprisingly not busy and easy to get a booth without reservations. Our hostess was friendly, as was our waitress. I love their bread, sweet and warm, served with whipped butter. Bonus points for the small chunks of sweet flavoured onion baked into it.

For main I went with the salmon. Mmmmm.....melt in your mouth... more

I've been there a couple of times. let's say it : I like it

The service is very nice, very helpful.
Food is very good, they have good steaks, an excellent selection of wines, the restaurant is modern but nice : not noisy, tables are quite distant from each other.

One, only one little reproach : I went there yesterday, in january, and every time somebody opened the door, we had some cold air... more

Made a reservation for our group of 12 and was accommodated nicely.

Upon our arrival for brunch, our table was situated in its own private room which was had large windows looking onto Byward Market.

Our waitress was attentive without being overbearing, as it took a while for decisions to be made.

Everyone was impressed with the food quality. The classic breakfast ($10) was a generous... more

This is perfect that we are able to get the home loans and this opens up new possibilities.

for my mother's birthday we all went to Empire Grill - The service was fantastic. The ambiance was sleek and smart. The Bison was to die for, but for my tuna steak - overly cooked and extremely dry. what a shame and especielly for $29

We are from Montreal and each time we go to Ottawa, Empire Grill is on the top of our list. The veal medallion is so tender and tasty. As far as the mussels, we were not impressed. Overall, even if our bill is never under 150$ we still ove this nice restaurant. You should go!!!

Trendy and popular, the Empire Grill serves well as a date place or for a business dinner. The varied menu has wide appeal, with pastas, fish and chicken dishes. But it's the steaks that get most of the attention. Albert AAA Angus Beef, aged 28 days and grilled to your specifications, topped with a choice of sauces like green peppercorn jus and portobello-chipotle-red wine reduction, and served... more
