Reviews for Imperial

Those seeking a classy joint worth getting dolled up for are jazzed about Vitaly Paley and Ben Bettinger’s sensibly swank new Broadway Street eatery in the Hotel Lucia, where seasonally-driven Northwest fare fuels a convivial downtown crowd. And if you end up getting the proverbial room after a few too many of the dangerously affordable signature cocktails, come morning, the Imperial pastrami hash and crab croque-madame are but an elevator ride away—the dining room serves three squares a day, starting at the ungodly hour of 6:30am on weekdays.

When I visit Imperial it's for the After & In Between Hours (happy hour) when the best burger in town is also the most affordable.


Imperial has a lot going for it—it’s attractive, it lives in a great part of town, it’s very popular but still friendly, it has exceptional taste in food and wine, and it makes some pretty amazing duck meatballs. You should go order them right now.


Chef Paley brings us swanky yet assessable dishes morning and night. The between-lunch-and-dinner menu is light, but satisfying.


Industrial meets stylish pizzazz describes this upscale eatery. Spiced Oregon Albacore Tuna paired with crab creamed corn, fantastic. Duck Meatballs smothered with just the right amount of orange gremolata sauce, delicious. Some signature cocktails are barreled and served on tap. Try one, you'll be happy you did.


Paley's Imperial boasts new-old-fashioned fare ranging from roubust steaks topped with chanterelles and garlic herb butter to sophisticated salads for lovers of greens who lunch.
