A word from Epic Roasthouse
The Main Dining Room features a stunning view of the bay from every table. For those who prefer al fresco dining our Inside Out Room is the perfect place for a romantic dinner or get together among friends next to the cozy fireplace. A custom-built wood fired grill and a large wood burning oven serve as the focal points of Kuleto's design for the restaurant.

The menu features an inventive combination of traditional and contemporary dishes, showcasing everything from fish to fowl, and specializing in a variety of meats and steaks. Handmade cocktails, domestic and imported beers, and a well-selected wine list complement the menu.

  • "Go to place when I'm looking for a serious martini, a simple but elegant cut of meat beautifully prepared, and great service. They always allow me to choose one of the dinner menu steaks at lunch!"

  • "I went to Epic on july 27 I had a table for 6 we had so much fun the food was AMAZING we had 4 NY steak Shrimp and a burger the food was so yummy the service was so neat I stayed until 9:45pm the view in at the sunset was great and at night it was greater we had such an amazing night Thanks Epic Love,"
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "Really enjoyed brunch at Epic. Food, service and view were great. Only downside was that the tables outside are close together and the party next to us was extremely loud so it was hard for us to hear each other."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "The steak was amazing. The view of the Bay Bridge was gorgeous. We had the Julia Child potatoes and carrots as a side. They were also fantastic. Finished dinner with a sundae. I couldn't pick a favorite because the sundae left a big impression on me. Overall a wonderful time."

  • "Had a delicious steak at this restaurant. Highly recommend for visitors who want a great first meal on the Embarcadero"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "I generally wouldn't comment on a bad experience because everyone can have an off night but this was just so bad on so many fronts. In truth I would say that at no point did I feel that any single person in the restaurant actually cared if we were there or not. The hostess greeted us with indifference, the waitress in the bar served us with indifference, our waitress actually tried for a little bit, and the dining room manager...wow. The food service was bad and slow. No one came to our table to greet us for a few minutes. We had to ask for bread....it came quite some time after asking. Both entree's were cold,one sent back, no apologies,no sense of urgency. I was embarrassed for choosing the spot and i've been here 10 times before."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "This restaurant is outstanding. Beautiful view of the Bay Bridge, esp. at night. HUMONGOUS steaks, good selection of other food items, sides, desserts, wines, etc. PRICEY, but worth it. I highly recommend."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "The restaurant was practically empty, so the noise level was minimal and service was quick. We were a party of three and all ordered a hamburger, each requesting different levels of doneness - rare, medium rare and medium - and they all were cooked the same! I thought the French fries were dry and tasked like they had been frozen. I don't think I'll be rushing back to try again."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "The view is incomparable – my advice is position yourself upstairs in the bar to experience it. The service was better upstairs… we regretted moving downstairs all night long. Avoid the corn side dish – so salty it bordered on inedible. The meat and potatoes were prepared well, overall we are happy we visited."

  • "Just dined here for my husband's 40th birthday - gorgeous view, exceptional service, and amazing food. It couldn't have been more perfect."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "The service at Epic has always been the reason my wife and myself have always returned time after time. This time we were both quite disappointed. I made it known that we were celebrating my wife's birthday and absolutely zero mention of it. A side she ordered was forgotten. We have been going to Epic since it first opened and the service has always been impeccable. this time it was an Epic fail. To be fair, the food as always was outstanding. The outdoor patio offers the quintessential San Francisco experience. I just hope that the bad service was a fluke experience this one time."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "There is absolutely nothing special or outstanding about the food. Yes it is very very good but nothing that would make it stand out from the crowed of other upper stake house. We found it extremely noise, it was hard to carry a conversation with someone over the ambient noise. For me the noise level took away any chance of making this a restaurant for a romantic dinner or a place to celebrate a special occasion. I would not go back. I prefer Morton's or Ruth's Chris Steak House."

  • "We celebrated a friend's Birthday at the Epic and it was incredible. Incredible food, service and ambience!"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "I enjoyed the great Bay Bridge view at this classy, upscale and modern steakhouse, but the service was very slow, with a lot of dead time and diners looking for the waiters. Too slow, for a business lunch."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "After reading about their Wagyu beef burger with lobster on top, we wanted to try it. The burger was perfectly done and the half lobster, which is an add on to the burger came on a separate plate ( you can also request that it be shelled first) with drawn butter. So if you dip the lobster in the drawn butter before putting it on the burger, it makes the burger so moist and tastety. We had a dog with us, so we sat on the patio outside, with a breathtaking view of the SF Bay and the Bay Bridge. Service was very nice. Drinks and coffee were excellent too. We would definitely go back."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Overall Epic is a great spot to dine. The food was delicious (I had the filet mignon-cooked to perfection and so tender! My boyfriend had the corte de boeuf which he said was amazing!) and the restaurant has great decor and a beautiful view! The drinks were great as well! I'd like to go back to try their breakfast!"

  • "This restaurant was perfect to celebrate our wedding anniversary with the view, attention to detail by the waiting staff, and extra mile service in recommendation of places to go onto!"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "I'm spoiled having grown up eating Montana beef, the Rib Eye I had was one of the best steaks I've every eaten. Requested medium rare, cooked to perfection. The oysters were a perfect start, followed by gathered green salad. The salad had thumb sized black berries that tasted like pure sugar and melted in the mouth. Paired the meal with a bottle of Duckhorn Merlot, every sip was like velvet. Our waiter was perfect for me, professional, knowledgeable about everything on the menu, not chatty, didn't stop by and ask unhelpful questions like; "Is everything all right?" He had glasses filled without asking, balanced the wine between me and my guest quietly without asking, perfect balance of great service without being in my face all night."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "This food was good but I would not catagorize it as great. Two of the steaks ordered at my table were over cooked - only on half of the steak. Not sure how they over cooked one half and the other was fine. They must have a hot spot on the grill. Service was good but I thought the restaurant was a bit noisy. It was also very expensive."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "From the waitress to our dinner and even dessert! Everything was wonderful."

  • "This is the 2nd time we have been to EPIC. The food is excellent...the make your own ice cream sundae to die for. Service is leisurely, staff attentive. Like that after you make a reservation, they confirm by email and phone."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "For a steak purist, this restaurant is not for you. If you would like outback style steak at premier steak restaurant prices, then this is your place. Ordered a filet medium and it had zero pink. My date ordered a prime rib medium rare and it was nearly well done."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Don't miss the Epic Bloody Mary! The burger is the best -worth the splurge! Actually, everything I've tried there has been fantastic and I can be rather....picky!"
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "All of the food was perfect. The steak was cooked perfectly. Staff attentive and timely."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "It's an interesting venue, with huge ducts and other metalwork suggesting the building was once a factory (is this faked for ambiance?). Service excellent, and the food is wonderful, with creative use of ingredients. Lots of steaks, but also other offerings, with info on where/how the fish were caught! However, the main diningroom is huge, and between the loud background music (not live) and the people trying to converse over it, very very noisy."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "The host wasn't that great and could not give us a table that I requested,manager suppose to come, talk to us rigt away and didn't come till we finish the dinner."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "The prefix brunch menu for $25.00 was a great bargain for 3 courses. We sat outside on the deck and enjoyed the views of the bay. Hopefully they takedown the large flat screen TVs throughout the restaurant when the World Cup is over. It was a little disconcerting sitting directly below one with everyone staring in yourdirectionwhenweate."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Menu is a bit limited, steaks mostly and sides a la carte, some seafood apps and salads. Not a single chicken dish or many vegetarian options, but it is a roast house so can't complain about the vegetarian part (would appreciate some chicken though...)! Dessert sounded great (doughnut holes) but was dry and disappointing. They totally screwed up our birthday special occasion table reservation, were friendly and tried to fix it, but still disappointed that even with a reservation weeks ahead via OpenTable and confirmed by our hotel concierge, it was botched. Great ambiance though and views of Bay Bridge Lights cannot be beat."

  • "What a wonderful night. We had a table right under the Bay Bridge, which set the perfect tone for a romantic birthday evening. The steaks were terrific - some of the best we've ever had, and the suggested wines complemented them perfectly. The staff were excellent. We had a thoroughly enjoyable night and will be coming back."

  • "We've heard great things about this place and have wanted to give it a try for a while now. As it happened, after we were seated, a party of 4--with one toddler and one infant were placed at the table next to us. In my opinion, this is not a "kid-friendly" sort of place that you would bring children of this age bracket to. 7 yr. olds and up as part of say a special occasion like a grandparents birthday, I get. Bringing young ones like this who are screaming incessantly for their sippie cups-not so much. If I am going to fork out $260+ for dinner for two, I don't want to feel like I have to endure screaming children who are then put upon the floor to roll around while dad decides its an iPhone moment..."

  • "We took my dad out for a family celebration of his 80th birthday. We were given a beautiful table, and the staff was exceptionally friendly. Everybody came over to wish him a happy birthday, which made the evening all the more special. The food is top notch. The view is spectacular. I highly recommend Epic Roasthouse for special occasions. Also, I'd note that there were several Giants fans all decked out in their Giants gear who were enjoying a meal before walking down to the game. So, great place for a pre-game dinner, too!"

  • "This is the third time we have flown to SF to celebrate our wedding anniversary. With the amazing food, the consistently great service by our server, Dan and the fantastic view, what more do you need for a great evening out? The blue cheese topping on the Madeira sauce fillet was to die for! The sides we really enjoyed were the grilled broccolini and Julia Child's potatoes. We can't wait for our return!"

  • "Curb appeal, decor ambience were all there. Service was crisp and attentive on each level. The food was quite mediocre. The tuna tartare was sour and bitter without any liveliness. The limited span of menu choices forced each in our party to go with burgers; which arrived with dry stiff buns and way over-salted fries. The attempt at former ketchup also failed. Flat and starchy. Heinz would have been better. This place simply needs better execution on what should be solid menu winners"

  • "Epic Roasthouse is a great restaurant. It never disappoints. You get a scenic table overlooking the water and fantastic food. What more could you want from a restaurant. Sure, it's pricey, but it's delicious. If you love steaks, you'll love Epic Roasthouse. If you love great food, you'll love Epic Roasthouse. It's just terrific."
