Beautiful patioHad a wonderful Dine About Town experience. It was a perfect day for patio dining, with gorgeous views of the water and Bay Bridge. It was my first visit even though I live nearby, and I will definitely be back.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMEpic RoasthouseI went there for the Dine About Town Lunch to celebrate a friend's birthday. We were delighted to get such fine food for the low price.
After ordering the Little Gem Salad, we shared two fabulous dishes, the Grilled King Salmon and Pan Roasted Chicken along with
a glass of wonderful Pinot Noir. The dessert, Strawberry Shortcake resting on a pool of vanilla bean Creme Anglaise,
rounded out our meal.
The attentive service, stunning waterfront view, and beautiful architecture were very impressive. The fine meal and beautiful ambiance made for a wonderful afternoon. I would definately go back again and highly recommend the restaurant.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMbest brunch in san francisco yippeeNo better restaurant for great food and great setting by the bay and the bay bridge. Service is superb and the menu has something for everyone. Choice of inside or outside dining is wonderful.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went to take advantageWe went to take advantage of the Dine About Town lunch specials; neither one of the three of us had been to Epic Roasthouse before. After our experience, all three of us pledged to come back as often as possible, dragging with us as many out-of-town visitors as we can. The food was delicious. From the corn bisque through the main course (in our case, a half chicken, short rib sandwich and prawn salad) to the deconstructed strawberry shortcake for dessert, we were delighted and impressed. The list of wines offered by the glass is spot on. All of this, at a most reasonable Dine About Town price, on a sunny Friday afternoon, with one of the most prized views in the area right before us -- it just doesn't get any better than this!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for dine about townWe went for dine about town and were very pleased with the choice of menus offered and the addition of a dessert! Wonderful spot outside with view on the water.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMPlace was packed, early onPlace was packed, early on a Thursday, so service was a bit slow...6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent steak ! Great view!!Steaks were prepared just as ordered. Excellent steaks. Little Gem Salad was excellent. Beef tartar was spicy and perfect.
Dessert was very, very, very good - beignets ( different than New Orleans - yet similar ).
Chef Jan from Louisiana, as are we, he introduced himself to us at the table. We talked about LA and high schools and other restaurants in LA. Very pleasant, humble man.
Great night with great view of Bay Bridge lit up!
Definitely recommend to anyone who is NOT a vegetarian. Then again, this might get a vegetarian to switch back to meat!6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Steaks, with a viewHad one of the best Prime Rib cuts, second only to the House of Prime Rib's entrees. The view is outstanding, and the wine list is very wide.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat timeService was very nice. Prompt friendly staff. Great food. Great view.

consistent with high quality of food
Rib Eye, Hamburger, & in general Steak dishes are just excellent
They use very little salt and that makes it different from other steak houses
Clean, comfortable & timely service,
Easy to park plus valet
feel good after leaving the Restaurant to walk around6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and view of the bayLove the scenic view over the bay, looking upon the bay bridge night lights. The service was great, the decor is rustic with old machinery as features, and it has warm atmosphere. I had the 14oz prime rib, it was possibly the best steak I've had anywhere. And I've sought out good steaks form Australia to London. The sides were great too, and servings were very generous. I told the staff about my wife's birthday, so they placed us at a table right near the window for the best view. Definitely recommend this place.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat view.My wife and I truly enjoyed dinner. The view of the bay bridge and the Embarcadero was nice. Our waiter Mike was knowledgable and very attentive. I will go to Epic again.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMFun Night Out!!Arrived a little early but was seated right away (which was nice) at a great table for two with a nice view!!

Even though my wife's steak was over cooked, the GM visited us and expresed concern and offered a number of ways to "make it up" to us.
We'll be back5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect place for romantic dinnerFrom service to views to liquor to food, everything was top notch.

A totally enjoyable experience and an anniversary to remember!5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect steak, perfect brunch!Very nice place.
Service is good, steaks are very good, as well as the side dishes. The Burger is to die for.
Also very good brunch menu, can't beat the $20 per bottle of French sparkling wine.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMNice location, average foodMost high end restaurants serve bread warm and crunchy, cold meats were mediocre, scallops very nice, filet average. Potatoes were too dry.. As if it stayed too long in the oven.
Net net very nice location average food.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGraduation DayEpic Roasthouse treated my girlfriend + guests, like royalty this past Sunday afternoon. The ambiance is always warm, the energy in the various spaces is always alive with celebration and good feelings in the air. The half shell oysters as appetizers was a huge hit with everyone!! Many of us had beef brisket which absolutely excellent!! Everyone is courteous, highly professional, charming and all about customer service What could be better?
Everytime my girlfriend and I come to the City, we can't help but stop at the Epic roasthouse. We strongly recommend this wonderful restaurant to our friends and relatives. Kudos - this place is a major hit!!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat graduation dinner!Great place for a special occasion dinner. View of Bay Bridge is fantastic, food was great and service was superb.

We had a great table overlooking the bay bridge. The staff is so attentive and really cater to your eeds I don't think I have ever had service like I did here and they were so nice. The truffle whipped mashed potatoes are to die for! I would definitely come back for our next anniversary.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing view of Bay BridgeBeautiful restaurant with a beautiful view. Extensive wine list. Steaks were excellent. Service was also excellent.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGood eatsGood food--a little pricey for just dinner out. Nice view of the lights on the Bay Bridge, attentive service and not pushy, and food is good. Wine was good, too.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood & BadWent early to enjoy a drink in their upstairs Bar area. Found a wonderful outside table for two on their terrace over-looking the SF Bay. UNFORTUNATELY, no one came to take our order. Bartender didn't want to take the order directly, said he's send someone right away. Never showed. We left the Bar, the table on the terrace & the view. Disappointing. Informed front staff.
Dinner notable for their steaks. A fantastic Prime Rib roast. Good wine selection but (expectedly) too bad the prices are so inflated. Always seemed to me that more reasonable wine prices would encourage more choices and greater movement of merchandise. Helps reputation of restaurant as well, at least among those who enjoy wine, to know a restaurant encourages choices.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AM1st AnniversaryWent here for our wedding anniversary this past weekend. Requested a spot with great view and was very happy with where we were sat. They immediately acknowledged our anniversary which was a surprise! Food and view and service was incredible but what we love most of all was the free glasses of champagne the manager brought out to us. Would definitely recommend Epic Roasthouse!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AM" Epic " Night out ...Amazing dining extravaganza -
Old Overholt Rye Mash Manhattan Cocktails while enjoy menu and conversation
Excellent appetizers : The Squid Wood Oven Flash Roasted Squid “Catahoula”
Gigante White Beans, Kalamata and Niçoise Olives - House Cured EPIC Charcuterie - and the shrimp cocktail, like no other!
Whole Branzion, Steak and Cake and 14oz Prime Rib - WOW!

Our wait staff headed by Balantina just superb. What a memory we made. Thank you so much!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent !We lucked out and got the perfect window table to watch the new LED lights on the Bay Bridge.
Our waiter, Paul was amazing ! Paul knew everything on the menu and when we inquired about a few of the dishes, he could describe those selections in detail. Service was efficient, but not rushed...and always with a smile.
The $ 46 New York Steak was enormous and delicious!
Not something you do every day, but it was fun to splurge in such a cool restaurant.
Can't wait to go back !5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMHoneymoonersThe food here was AMAZING. The only complaint I have about the entire experience is the noise. The table my husband and I were seated had a great view for one but not the other. The table we sat at was set long ways (a table for 2) and because of the noise in the restaurant we couldn't here each other talking...so we didn't. It would have been nice to have been seated in a more quiet nuetrally delightful location. But the service and the food was TERRIFIC!!!!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBay Bridge Steak & ViewSecond time...as good as I remembered. Sunday evening so wasn't super busy...everything was simply delicious.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a view of the Bay Bridge!Amazing view of the Bay Bridge, Treasure Island, and Bay. I definitely recommend sitting outside, because the scenery is unbelievable and the vibe is so relaxing and intimate. The service is spectacular and food delicious.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was delicious- all ofFood was delicious- all of it! And, you can't beat dining under the sparkling Bay Bridge.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I decided toMy husband and I decided to eat at Epic based on a friends recommendation and we are so glad we did! We came to San Francisco for our honeymoon and wanted a nice romantic place to celebrate. Right when we sat down, our server brought 2 glasses of champagne! The food was wonderful, service was great and prices were reasonable. We will definitely eat at Epic again!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food, super niceOutstanding food, super nice people, good value, top experience!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice. I loved my food.Very nice. I loved my food. Husband wasn't too impressed he said his steak wasnt medium rare it was more rare and he didnt think flavors ere great. I loved my scallops. View is beautiful!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food -- get the burger,Great food -- get the burger, it was surprisingly amazing4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing location, friendly staffReally enjoyed our first visit and will go again. My son who attended and works for a TV chef enjoyed his food. Once we were all seated the waters were refilled frequently, however we did notice a little slowness on the servers checking in. It seemed there were only two servers for the outdoor area. Otherwise, amazing location and we loved it. staff was very friendly. Nice touch was when our waiter put a little bowl of water out for puppy at next table; it was 80 degrees out.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I were in SanMy husband and I were in San Fran for work as well as our 1 year anniversary. We dined at Epic for the anniversary and couldn't be happier. Food was amazing, service impeccable and the view fabulous. We decided to have a post dinner drink @ the bar and were surprised by our waiter who found us to bring a complimentary dessert with "happy anniversary" scrolled across the plate- he picked up on the special occassion when we first sat down. This place was worth every penny! Will be back next time we are out west!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFrom the moment you walk inFrom the moment you walk in the door, you're greeted with friendly faces and very attentive service. The view from inside the restaurant is amazing but outside, it's breathtaking! We sat at an intimate table along the waterfront outside and took in the view while we drank our cocktails. Their sommelier is very helpful and not pushy. We ordered the scallops and the rib eye with sides of Mac and cheese and roasted potatoes. Everything was cooked to perfection and their rib eye is out of this world good. Our server was attentive throughout dinner but went MIA once we asked for the check - we didn't complain much as it allowed us more time to admire the bay bridge lights. Overall a great experience and we'll be back for our next special night.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWow!What an amazing place. Unobstructed view of the Bay Bridge -- gorgeous heated patio -- excellent reasonably priced food -- wow! My new favorite SF place!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMEpic has, IMHO, the best locationEpic has, IMHO, the best location to view the new Bay Bridge lights. You see the up close sections - so you understand how it all works - and you get the dramatic impact from the farther away - near Treasure Island - sections. It is very impressive.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place! Had a wonderfulGreat place! Had a wonderful time and the service was outstanding!!!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
