The Legendary Imperial House Continental Restaurant
For three and a half decades the Imperial House restaurant has specialized in recreating the refined, sophisticated ambiance and elegant cuisine long associated with the grand dining rooms of New York and Europe. Discriminating guests return again and again to gaze through the leaded-glass windows at scenic Balboa Park and savor classic continental-style dishes at linen-covered tables in the wood-paneled dining room.
Delicately prepared specialties such as Imperial Pepper Steak, the Fresh Seafood Platter, Mock Turtle Soup a l'Anglaise, and Rack of Lamb, have earned an international reputation for the award-winning, family-owned restaurant.
The fine selection of entrées, appetizers, and flambé desserts on the Imperial House menu are also served at private parties for up to 200 guests in the restaurant's tastefully decorated banquet room, or in the location of your choice.
The catering manager will gladly assist in designing a unique and well-paced menu for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. To accompany the meal, a wide variety of wines, champagnes, and liqueurs are available from the restaurant's well-stocked cellar.
The Imperial House furnishes the crisp linen tablecloths, polished silverware, sparkling glassware, and Old World service that ensure every gathering is a memorable occasion.
