As a girl of Cantonese ancestry growing up in California, I had attended dozens of Chinese wedding banquets. I always knew that I did not want to have one - the idea of sitting for hours through through ten noisy courses of food with nothing to do but eat and try to talk to the people seated at your table does not appeal to me.

But I thoroughly enjoyed my wedding REHEARSAL dinner at Empress Harbor Seafood Restaurant. I called to reserve four tables in our own small room. They called a week prior to confirm with me. The service was attentive. Parking was easy (especially considering it's in Monterey Park). The room was quiet, clean, and elegant, and even though we arrived 20 minutes late, the food was perfectly timed and cooked. There may be less expensive and tastier options out there in Monterey Park for Cantonese banquet food. But half of my guests dine frequently in the area, and even they were impressed!

We hosted our wedding reception here.

Thanks to Eric, one of the managers, in helping us create some wonderful memories at this beautiful restaurant.

I cannot express how appreciative I am to have hosted our event here. Food, from all accounts, was tasty. Unfortunately, neither the bride nor I tasted the majority of the meal =(

Everything from the dance floor, to the stage, to the table and napkins, to the seat coverings looked spectacular.

If you are looking to host a traditional Chinese wedding reception, Empress Harbor would be at the top of my list.

We had our reception banquet at this restaurant. We were told by our guests that the food was excellent, so I'm pretty sad that I only got a few nibbles whenever I got a chance. Good service, great value. Only con is that it's located in a plaza that looks a little run down.
