    We had an incredible dinner at Empress by Boon. Every dish was a treat to experience, and the food was only further complemented by an excellent ambience, decor, and staff. It is definitely a dining experience to remember. We hope to be back soon!

    Staff was very nice, but some of them have a harder time describing the dishes. My feedback centers on how to serve the plates on table, was quite brusque. I do not mind that in a normal Chinese restaurant, but for a restaurant aspiring to be higher end, wait staff and servers need to know how to do it properly.

    Super fantastic new take on Chinese classics. Really elevated in a fantastic setting. Early evening is busy and lively, later evening a little more sedate in my experience. Both great - just depends on which you’re looking for.

    Our overall experience at Empress by Boon was memorable. The five appetizers served individually challenged the taste buds and delighted the eye. The culinary masterpieces included the Summer truffle puff, a golf ball sized umami explosion; the steamed shrimp and squid dumplings were whimsical and flavorful bites floating in a perfectly a paired and surprising broth and the crispy tiger prawn resting on a watermelon cushion complemented each other. We did feel a bit of dissonance with the main course. The over cooked short ribs were beautifully presented but disappointed us with a dull flavor profile. The other two dishes were on a par with the appetizers. Jewel like sugar snap peas with lotus seeds and cloud ear mushrooms were delightful. The inventive rice dish got mixed reviews from our group. The impeccable service included introductions of each dish. The plating matched the cuisine in its elegance. The plates themselves go well beyond functional design. Boon has transformed this restaurant space that includes spectacular views looking out on Coit Tower and the flags of the two Chinas. The only off note was the noise level that precluded comfortable conversation. Nevertheless a fabulous experience.

    We had high hopes for Empress by Boon, but we were disappointed. I'll start with that the restaurant is beautifully decorated. Unfortunately, the hosts were not friendly and unaccommodating. The food was good but not great. The prix fixe menu is actually reasonable but they get you on the dessert. Each item was $19! I'm glad that the restaurant was busy, but we will not be back.

    It was a sisters’ reunion since beginning of the pandemic. My sister lives overseas and I live in Sacramento. The nice surprise was our server worked at another restaurant that we had previously gone to 5 years ago and she recognized us! All the dishes were excellent. We even added the duck to our meal. Our seats were next to the window overlooking Chinatown and a different perspective. It was a perfect experience.

    Food and ambiance are top rate, but the music (way too loud) is wrong for a place of this type of glamour and elegance. Should be fusion Chinese/modern jazz or interesting cocktail-like jazz (no vocals). It's wonderful that Chef Boon comes out to greet guests, and it's refreshing to know that they don't resist making substitutions or deletions when requested. Views are to die for. Great special occasion place...and maybe a place to go just because of the restaurant's location in the heart of Chinatown and a serves as a reminder of past and future community.

    Wow... Just wow. I came here to celebrate with a friend and we were blown away. Our server, Daniel with the beautiful eyes, was extremely informational and friendly. His suggestions on how to eat each dish were helpful. It was a set menu and I don't remember exactly what each dish was. All I know is that I was not disappointed with any of the dish. My mind was more blown away at the plating and taste. It was a party in my mouth with every bite. So flavorful and tasty. The egg tart dessert is a must. Chef Boon even took the time to come out to our table and held a conversation with us. He can speak so many languages and it was impressive. I highly... HIGHLY RECOMMEND coming here and with an empty stomach. Thank you to Chef Boon and Daniel with the beautiful eyes. *the view is amazing'!*

    Sadly after waiting a month to eat there, I told the waiter I had a peanut allergy and one of the first things he served me had peanuts. I suffered from anaphylactic shock. I didn’t want to ruin the evening for my son and husband since we drove an hour to get there, so we stayed and I just stopped eating. The management ended up comping our dinners but I would’ve loved to have enjoyed the meal instead. I understand the food was excellent and beautifully presented.

    Excellent overall: food, venue, menu, drinks, presentation, and service were very good. Great touches to the dumplings (squid and fish). Wine pairing was great with each course. Non-alcoholic beverages went well with all courses also. Would have preferred to have option on choosing which dining area to be in when making online reservation. Will be returning again soon.

    The food is amazing. An elevated asian/Chinese food experience with seasonal ingredients. Everything was perfect, the flavor were simple and not overdone, but with a perfect execution. The service was superb and the place is beautiful. The only problem is that it is very noisy and it is difficult to talk to each other

    The food was very good, except I would prefer the lobster dish to have less of a sweet and sour taste. The view was good, with most of the tables facing the windows and looking out to Colt Tower. The music was too loud, and not the right choice for fine dining. in my opinion. All in all, I would come back, assuming they would vary the items on the fixed menu.

    Went here for my husband’s birthday but will be back because this was one of the best meals we’ve had in a long time. We’ve eaten at many highly regarded restaurants…. French Laundry, Gary Danko, Quince etc and Empress was by far and away the best of all of them!

We even got a visit from the Chef! And don’t miss the cocktails - they are very thoughtfully created.
