My husband and I were visiting for the weekend and were looking for a nice, reasonably-priced restaurant within easy walking distance from the Marriott hotel. We found Empire and it was utterly delightful. Service was knowledgeable, prompt, attentive. Small plates (we ordered 4 to share) were varied, imaginative and delicious. It was a holiday weekend so no wait to sit or eat. We liked it so much we went back again our second night. Our check was $35.00 total each of the two meals (no drinks) and we were full. When we return to Norfolk we will return to Empire. Highly recommended. – Elizabeth R., Richmond, VA

I live downtown and this is always a bar that I find myself at. Tasty tapas and great beer collection. I really liked the last location but this is just as nice 🙂 – Kim N., Norfolk, VA
