Founded in 2018 in South Africa, the steakhouse began with a passion for creating perfect steak and inspiration drawn from New York City. Today, it specializes in prime-cut steaks and ribs and extends that taste sensation to light meals, seafood, salads, chicken, and famous New York-themed items.

The grills burn, and their passion for great steak will live on through their ever-evolving menu, which regularly comprises the classics and introduces exciting and innovative specialty steaks. While remaining trendy and up-to-date, the traditional favorites remain consistent, holding value through the richness of their traditions.

As long as there are steak lovers to feed in South Africa, The Empire Steak will continue to exist. The outside seating area is drawn from the Central Park theme, with plants and greenery in a spacious outdoor environment. Their sidewalk seating area is inspired by the sidewalk cafe atmosphere of the USA.

Step into their restaurant with hues of yellow, grey, and black with mild gold aesthetics to create a cozy ambiance that draws upon the skyscrapers of NYC. The towering and majestic skyscraper inspires the restaurant, The Empire State Building, carried out in their theme.

Their mission at The Empire Steak is always to exceed guests’ expectations. They strive to be the best in their industry in South Africa and beyond. They strive to innovate and improve continuously. They place the customer experience at the core of all that they do.

Their commitment to premium ingredients, quality, service, signature recipes, and great dining experiences is at the forefront of their business. They believe in mutual respect, humility, integrity, fairness, and responsibility towards their guests, staff, suppliers, and the community in which they exist.
