Service and atmosphere was very good. Hover the menu was very limited - a lot of burger type food. No really choice of desserts ... Otherwise all very good.

The waitress did not give any information. She did not tell us our options for the dinner, did not ask what we would like with the meal or even how we would like our steak done. Other than this the food was delicious

Nice food, good service, but portion size seemed to be reduced just because the meal was on special offer, which I always find sneaky and irritating. Wouldn't leave me in a hurry to go back again.

In general very happy. Staff were great - we asked about the lighting Babylon as some guests found it too dark but staff explained it only had option of nightclub style lighting or full lights. Originally ordered 8 platters but bar girl suggested we may end up with far too much food, so went with 6. Turns out we needed the full 8, but the next 2 arrived very quickly. Would definitely recommend to others.

Excellent venue for a work night out. Finger food was delicious, and cocktails to die for!! We throughly enjoyed a boogie downstairs with great dance tunes into the late hours. Staff efficient and friendly. I will recommend your venue for any gathering and will most certainly be back in the future x

Danny was lovely, he was very attentive to such a large group. We all loved the food. The music was brilliant and the criac was mighty. The only reason I deducted a star from 'food and drink' and 'value for money' was due to the lack of alcohol in the cocktails on the 2 for 10 deal. This may sound silly but there were a number of us drinking them and we did not think there was much in the cocktails. Perhaps less ice more vodka? Otherwise everything was perfect and we are already planning to go back.

Booked our Charity Night here in July. The staff were all fantastic from the initial booking to the manager on the night and the staff involved. Every effort was made to make our night a success and although we had less numbers than we hoped we were treated fantastically all through the night. Food was great, we ordered a few platters and drinks promotions were a bonus. Great experience.

We really had a great night , thanks again for the service. Food was lovely with plenty of choice,our waitress was very helpful. The only thing we weren't mad about was the location of our reserved table which was right at the main door and seemed more like a bar area rather than an eating area.

Food was very good indeed. A new girl started that evening and made a mistake with our drinks order. Fully appreciate everyone needs to learn. What was very considerate the bar man gave us a free drink. These little things make a difference. Music was excellent even though it was a quite night in Empire. I would recommend to others and I'll be back there myself.
