    I visited the restaurant on a Friday for lunch. The waiter was very nice when we saw him but he only took our order and gave us our check. He never checked in to see how we were doing. The food quality was ok. There were 3 of us and we had a hamburger, ribs (cold). and the lunch special. We spent $100 on lunch and left unsatisfied. The three of us wished we had eaten at the taco truck over Epic which was an Epic failure. I have been here other times and the food and service were great but not this time unfortunately.

    I decided to use this restaurant to celebrate my proposal. I made sure to note it on our reservation that I would be popping the question that afternoon and ask for a table with a view of the Bay Bridge for our first dinner and if they can make the night as memorable as possible which they delivered on; the service, the food, the view, and the extras like the champagne to toast and dessert with congratulations written in chocolate. Everything was just perfect. To be completely honest after the wonderful day I had, just knowing that I was with someone special at a great dinner with a great view was enough, but the restaurant really went over the top to make it memorable and for that I'm eternally grateful. I will never forget it and thank you so much. I truly believe the the name says it all, Epic!

    We arrived a little early for an 8:00 pm reservation and we were seated fairly quickly against the window with a great view of the Bay Bridge. It took several minutes for our waitress to take our drink order and a lot longer to get our drinks delivered. After waiting longer we were finally able to make our food order. It took over 30 minutes to get our meal delivered. My wife's steak was definitely not cooked as order as confirmed by our waitress who insisted on taking it back to be cooked properly. By the time her order was redelivered my steak was cold and very "tough" and hard to chew. The broccoli rabe was the worst we have ever tasted and could not even swallow because of the horribly strong bitter taste. Typically when a restaurant makes an error on the meal order they offer something to offset the bad experience. Epic did not even acknowledge their mistake or offer to take the cost of one drink or a dessert to compensate. We will never go back to this restaurant again. Hopefully this is a rare occurrence and other people have better experiences otherwise Epic will not be around much longer.

    An outstanding place for excellent food and wine. The view towards the Oakland Bay Bridge is phenomenal and the service as well. Had to wait 10 min. and took drinks at the bar upstairs which was rather noisy. Recomendable for a special occasion as it is pretty expensive.

    Amazing service! I took the boyfriend here for his birthday. Almost every staff member wished him a happy birthday so I'm glad that made him feel special. Portions were huge. He had steak and I had the small prime rib along with 3 sides. We both didn't finish. By the way, the scallops were delicious!! So flavorful and not too heavy.

    We arrived promptly for our 2:15 Sunday Brunch reservation (the latest one available) We were seated at an awesome view table on the outside deck. The waiter took our drink orders promptly, and shortly afterwards took our food order. That's when the wheels started to fall off. On the one hand, it was nice to sit and enjoy the amazing water view with all the sailboats going by. On the other hand, waiting ONE HOUR to be served our Sunday Brunch Meal, after having come in at the latest available time of the day seems inexcusable. Food was good and we particularly enjoyed the chipotle hash. The half bottle of 2004 Rioja was the highlight of Epic's offering.

    I must say, I had very high expectations for Epic. A great location and all the things I heard about the food. Well, the food didn't disappoint. The steak was cook to perfection and was very flavorful. That being said, I must say the service was not what I expected. For a casual dinner that would take at the most 2 hours, my part and I was at this place till 1030. A whole four hours after we arrived. Why, most of the time it was the waiting. If you want great food and time to kill, this is a great spot.

    Epic is perfect for an elegant meal where you can watch the lights on the Bay Bridge or people watch during the day. The food has excellent seasoning and presentation. The personnel (especially the bus help) are very efficient. You will want to eat at a leisurely pace here to enjoy all the amenities.

  • A Little Disappointing
    Fishgirl
    Dined on 10/24/2014
    We've eaten here a number of times and loved it so we were disappointed when this time around our experience was less than stellar. Food was just ok - porterhouse steak wasn't as tender or flavorful as a dry aged cut should be and the mashed potatoes were a little pasty. The seared scallop appetizer, however, was just delicious! The server wasn't as friendly or engaging as servers we've had in the past and he got our dessert order mixed up and forgot to bring our coffee. This experience won't prevent us from eating here again, and of course, you can't beat the view, but we may have to look for another restaurant for the next special occasion.

    We were very excited as a party of 5 and being seated at one of the rotunda tables with a view of the Bay Bridge and the light show along with the water and passing ships. It didn't really get much better than that; -server was aloof enough to take away from the evening -food service was slow and prepared to okay standards for a restaurant charging for higher standards -menu was inspiring but still once arrived a disappointment Our experience though goes back to server, someone with an ounce of personality and not as condescending in attitude may have pulled this around a bit more. Won't be coming back, will walk by for the view.

Inside, there are large circular booths for parties of 6 or more with views of the bridge too. Staff is really friendly and helpful.

    I surprised my boyfriend for his birthday with taking him here & he was amazed. We were seated right next to the huge windows, and had an amazing view of the bay bridge. My boyfriend ordered the veal cheeks and said it was one of the best dishes he's ever had. I ordered the small prime rib & asked for it to done medium, it was a bit pink in the middle but still amazing! They also acknowledged my boyfriends birthday, they brought us our dessert with Happy Birthdsy written in chocolate and a candle. Overall, it was an EPIC night!
