The food selection, organization, and quality and service has nosedived in the past year. We ordered two green teas with our meal, and the waiter brought us one pot, but never refilled it. The salads that I like were empty, and had not been refilled...More

We have been to the restaurant many times before, but everything about it has deteriorated including, service, quality and especially the food. We did use our two for one coupon and that helped because I would not have paid full price. Doubt we will go...More

Our extended family is looking for a site for a family reunion in 2016 around Aug 15 which could be a large cottage and ground space for about 25 people. Could you provide for that? Thanks, jUNE

I belong to an organization and we have had a private Christmas party at Imperial. There is a room that they gave us exclusively. Enjoyed the evening a lot.
