    A great selection of entrees, pasta, chicken, beef, and usually several chices of fish. Everything we have had has been delicious but the tuna is my favorite. The staff is very accommodating and the wine and beer offerings are unique. Definitely try it out.

    We love dining at Epic. The food is consistently great. Love the beef tenderloin, and it is cooked perfectly. The veggies are not overcooked, but nicely crisp, and a good blend. The flatbreads are to die for. All in all a super dining experience, and fair prices.

    Heard positive things about Epic so finally went for the first time. The place was nice and a had good ambiance. Got an appetizer which was tasty and a salad which was fantastic (Note: the other salads sounded equally good). We ordered chicken marsala and Thai pasta. Both entrees were just bland. Not gross, not small, just bland but this was not at all what we had expected based on reviews and the salads. While the price was not outrageous, we certainly expected some flavor for the price we paid. While the service was great and the atmosphere nice, food is kind of an important piece of the dining out puzzle, and based on our bland entrees we are not sure if our first visit to Epic was also our last.

    We try to visit once a quarter, however, this one was a last minute decision. The wine was fantastic, the staff was friendly. The food was good, but previous visits have set the bar high. It seemed like the food was just shy of expectation and perhaps the staff was a little short or rushed. Overall, enjoyed the occasion.

    We did not think Ken's salad was as good as it normal is. Really don't know why. I knew your filet mignon was going to be a small portion, but this time it was miniscule. And I think, because it was so small it was over cooked. I asked for it to be medium rare. It was more like medium-well. My wife said her salmon was over cooked and dry. Sorry for this bad feedback.

    Great restaurant for dinner and lunch. Nice prices for the upscale food and wine. If you want a nice casual date night or dinner with friends, but you don't want to drive all the way downtown or pay a fortune, this place is great. I like it has a more "adult" atmosphere --that there weren't kids in the restaurant. Nice place for a business lunch as well. It is more quiet at lunch.

    I've been here numerous times and have not had a bad meal at all. Tried the Kobe flatbread for the first time this visit and it was outstanding! I also had the salmon entrée which was also good. Love the shallot mashers!! Service could have been better. Our server was very attentive until after we were served then she basically disappeared. I'll still go back since I love the place.

We had the suggested special of the evening. SO glad we did. My husband had never had a Caprese salad and now that he has, he wants to have it every night.

    We had not eaten at Epic's in several years; went on a Monday night and it was pleasantly full. Not too many entrees; good flatbread choices. The salads are outstanding! My husband and I shared a salad and it was more than ample. There is a fixed price menu which is reasonably priced but we are not big eaters so we both went for the tenderloin in a wonderful wine sauce. It was very, very good.

    I go to Epic at least once a month and I'm almost never disappointed. Their food is amazing, reasonably priced and their service is usually spot on. Their steaks are amazing - their filet is one of the best in the area without going to an expensive steakhouse. It can be a little noisy on a busy night, but not too much to not go back. The biggest complaint I have is they sometimes have an amazing shrimp and risotto dish but they say that it's "seasonal". Risotto is seasonal??? If they had this as a regular item on their menu I would definitely eat there more often.

    Seemed great at begining, the Flat bread appitizer was great as was salad and wine with good service. Then turned bad, wrong dinners were delivered and pickup by waitress as explained wrong ones delivered , but, left wife's as was right. She stated mine would be out shortly. My wife had accouple bites of hers waiting for mine. I had looked at my watch as she had picked up the wrong dinner - We thought since wrong tables dinner, mine should be right out - well, to me over 15 min is not shortly. By then I had lost my appetite as had drank the glass of wine I had orderd for dinner, my wifes dinner was cold, and the waitress was just going to drop off mine. I stopped her told her to box our dinners up as to late. A semi aniversary dinner ruined
