Imperial House Restaurant Review:

A throwback to another era, this elegantly appointed restaurant in the landmark Imperial Apartments tower will doubtless be serving Châteaubriand carved tableside for two and veal Oscar well into the next millennium. A loyal clientele likes the friendly but old-world style with red leather chairs, white linens and formal service. In a nod to modernity, there are salads and fresh vegetables; both the warm spinach and Caesar salads are prepared tableside. Other specialties include Imperial pepper steak, steak Diane, mock turtle soup, and rack of lamb. A good piano player, a skilled bartender and professional waitstaff all make the bar a popular meeting spot. The endless views of Balboa Park add to the inviting ambience.
