We chose the perfect venue for our wedding. We both loved how personal and elegant our wedding was. Every detail was just right. The food was excellent and our guests are still raving about the elaborate cocktail hour. Chris was the one we dealt with for most of the planning, and he followed every detail. He as well as the rest of the staff were very quick with responding to any questions that we had. For the price we got more than we ever hoped for. We had an outdoor ceremony that was beautiful. Even though it was supposed to rain, we had a backup arranged but it turned out to be wonderful weather. Our bridal party had a separate, private cocktail hour in another room, but I feel like we really missed out on the whole picture. Unfortunately we did not receive all of the food offered to all the guests, and limited passed hors d'ourves, but the food we did receive was still tasty. (I recommend joining everyone else for cocktail hour). The main reasons we chose the empire club was because with only our wedding going on, we had the whole place to ourselves. We had the option of an outdoor ceremony which was perfect, the multiple options of food that included Polish, Italian, and Mediterranean, and the place itself was charming. The waitstaff and bartenders was professional, and we cannot thank our maitre'Ds enough. They guided us every step of the way, through the ceremony, introductions, cake cutting, etc. The timing was perfect. Even the viennese hour was so wonderful with the fire show and unlimited desserts! Our guests were very satisfied with the delicious food and open bar. We were very happy to have chosen The Empire Club and recommend to anyone that wants the whole package, beauty, elegance, romantic, trendy, fun, with excellent service and delicious food!

I have not seen a place that can give you the quality of food and service for the price. It is the best Brunch I have ever had. Everyone was very helpful and accomodating.

I recently had my wedding here and everyone was amazing. Chris the manager was right there to give me a hand if I needed anything. The food tasted amazing and throughout the night everyone kept telling us how amazing the venue looked and the food tasted. Couldn't think of my wedding being anywhere else and I will be recommending them to anyone I know that will be getting married in the future.

I had My Sweet 15 there November 7th. It was absolutely incredible!! I loved it and enjoyed every second of it. I being the princess of the party wasn't able to eat at the party, but by what my friends told me it was extremely delicious! They let us take the left overs home which was when i was able to dig in to everything! I was somewhat nervous on the planning and the schedule. What time were we going to do this and what time were we going to do that. But they took care of it all. LITERALLY! I didn't have to think a single thought. Or worry about a single thing. It was seriously a night i will never forget. Loved it all! (People and Everything!) <3 :) Tiff.

I might be a little late on this review, but better late than never. =) I have been to the empire club on more than one occasion, and i must say it is great! I went to a wedding there in 2008 then had my wedding there in 2010. The staff was amazing, and very attentive to me and my guests. we came across a couple of issues that were solved very quickly by Don the Maitre D. Chris was great in helping with the planning, and very sweet and patient!. I must say, all my guest had an amazing time! They all still talk about how much fun it was. I went to a baby shower there today and it brought back wonderful memories! And of course, the baby shower was great! Food was amazing, and mommy and guests were all happy and had a good time.

My wedding reception was just 3 weeks ago at the Empire Club and my husband and I are so happy we chose The Empire Club.

From the beginning, just when I was inquiring about the Empire Club, I already received outstanding professionalism and responsiveness from Arthur Y. He was very flexible. I told him what our budget was and he was willing to work with us with cost. The price we got was unbelievable for the quality and service we got. They are even so flexible with what time you want to start! We wanted our cocktail hour to start at 4:30PM so our event was actually the only event they had that day too. I love how they do not book events too close. It gives you the reasurrance that things will be ready and the venue will not be rushing guests out from the first event to try to get things ready for yours. Communicating with Arthur and Chris was easy as they were both very easy to reach and they were very responsive and answered all my questions and concerns.

My fiance and I were able to do a tour of the reception hall. I loved how the cocktail hour is in a different room from the main hall. The cocktail hour is also a very spacious room where guests can mingle with one another. The bridal party has a different cocktail hour in the upstairs bridal party suite. My only minor complaint was I wish the upstairs room was more of a bridal party suite, with couches, etc. The bridal party suite was more of a small reception room set up with a couple round tables. It was nice and roomy up there for my bridal party but it didn't have that bridal suite feeling other venues have. But like I said, this is a minor thing. I spent probably a total of 20 minutes up there on our wedding day so it wasn't a big deal at all. The day we toured, we also did a tasting of some of their hors d'oeuvres. The food was great. I have received so many comments about the food at my wedding and how delicious it was.

Getting closer to my wedding, I of-course like many brides had a list of demands. =P Well not really, but a list of things I'd like done. I was so stressed out about it but The Empire Club was so great with working with me and my fiance and giving us suggestions on how to better do something or schedule our reception, etc. I trusted them and their advice. They are the experts at this and they do weddings all the time so they would know what they best way to do something. Our Maitre'D and Captain were great. They made everything go smoothly on our wedding day. I truly have no complaints about our wedding day. The Empire Club even gave us an extra 15 minutes of overtime for free! Everything was great. The food was delicious too. Thanks Empire Club.


I will probably end up writing a book here if I continue, so I will end my review with a last note: For brides who are looking for a beautiful venue on a quiet street, choose The Empire Club. You won't regret it!

The food! The food! The food!!! This place is top notch, everything from the food to the service. They were really great with my wedding. As a bride, I am just ecstatic to know that I had the chance to go through my wedding day without worrying about a single detail as far as the reception hall went. They handled everything from placing my slippers underneath my table by my chair to creating the most fabulous wedding cake. Just outstanding. A side note: My aunt and uncle had their wedding here in 1974 when it was called Vacharellis, and they loved it as well. The Empire Club also has a place in the back to take gorgeous pictures. Book them now!

I loved this venue. They only have one wedding at a time so they concentrate solely on your day and you have the whole place to yourself. The maitre de was incredible. I am very particular about what I wanted done. I didn't have to worry about anything because he did everything I asked and if he was unsure of something I wanted he came and asked me before he did it. Things went very smoothly, and the room was very pretty.
