Description: 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 Empire presents itself in a very nice way. This is a big restaurant, and we where there on a Monday night - not much people so it felt a bit wired to be seated next to empty tables.
Food is good - maybe not great - but is prices are on the high end. I my opinion not necessarily worth it.
Service is friendly and professional.

We went in for some sushi and were impressed with the quality and flavors, but they came at a high price, especially for the amount on each plate.
So, I rated it average because even though everything was very good quality, the price seemed too high.

For instance $27 for 4 lobster/scallop cupcakes which were a special. More fried rice than needed.
