EPOCH really hits the mark
It was our first trip to Epoch and it definately will not be our last. From the time we entered the restaurant/bar area until we left, the entire staff made us feel very special. My friend said she had been there for drinks and had brought groups there for dinner, but it was her first time for dinner and she loved it. It was by far a rare find and we love the fact that they do Farm to Table and boy do they do a great job. Our food was over the top in taste, the eye apeal was right on target and for us our server Carley made the evening complete. WE WILL BE BACK

Mother's Day Brunch
Most of the food was outstanding
However, carrots were very under cooked, and some of the home fried potatoes were undercooked
Food could have been hotter as well
Service was outstanding
Great value - buffet
A little steep on the drinks for the size
Overall - highly recommend

We used to live in Kingston (now Atlanta) and ate at the Epoch on many occasions...brunch and dinner. I can say that they have definitely stepped up their game. Our dinner was leaps and bounds above what we have had before. Starters of mussels, blue point oysters, and a wild berry salad were all great. To me, the sign of good mussels is do I want more bread to sop up the broth? I had to refrain from asking for more. Our main courses, lamb medallions, salmon, and chicken were all done perfectly. My pescatarian wife is very specific about her salmon being almost sashimi and they nailed it. The Epoch has become a hands above local restaurant.

Good food, ok service
We had a very good brunch. The poached eggs were done to perfection. The service was very slow. There was a private party in the next room. However, the main dining room was very quiet so I was surprised that the food took so long to arrive. They were also very slow to bring the check. But overall it was a very good meal.

The service can not be any better. The food is also great, but the menue is very limited. Also, do not go there hungry. The portions are extra small. You need magnifying glasses to see your food. Once you find it, It is tasty, by no means the best or a five star anything except service.

An excellent fine dining restaurant
An excellent fine dining restaurant. The menu utilized foods from local farms and fish mongers. Everything was fresh and delicious. The portions were larger than expected and the service fantastic. This restaurant will be one of our favorites.

Everything was right!
In an area with a lot of good-to-excellent restaurants, Epoch stood out to all five of us as head and shoulders above the rest. The service is very attentive without being overpowering; it's the first place I've been to in years where they replace your used silver between courses without being asked to. Food was beautifully prepared, as we're drinks. Well worth going out of your way for, and the inn itself would be a lovely weekend destination.

Great portion options
Dined at this restaurant for the first time and were pleasantly surprised by the contemporary menu. On most dishes half portions are offered which we appreciated the most since it allows you to have several courses without getting full already after the entree. Tables are far enough apart to have some privacy and keep the noise level down.
The food overall was very good and seasoned well. The only slightly negative part was the very friendly but rather slow waiter.He never refilled our wines and could not remember what the specials came with.
Overall a very nice and comfortable restaurant right in town we will go back to. It was already too cold for patio dining but we definitely will do this next time.

Most hotel restaurants are over price and over rated. I've put off going to Epoch for almost 2 years for that exact reason. Last week we decided to "bite the bullet" and check it out. First, I was surprised by the size of the restaurant and bar area. Clean, friendly and unpretentious. We were greeted quickly and sat at a nice table towards the back of the room. Wine list was ample, nothing special, good selection of beers and cocktails as well. Salads were very good. My wife had Salmon and I had the Veal Porterhouse special. We were both very happy with our choices. The veal was cooked to perfection and wasn't over sauced or under/over seasoned as is usually the case. The salmon was beautifully cooked and moist. We will return!

I am five months pregnant and have been craving duck for weeks. I found their menu online and it had duck! Although it came with a pricey tab, double what my husband and I usually pay for dinner, it was just what I needed. More menu options would have been nice for my husband, but he liked his meal. The dessert was delicious, but we were so full we couldn't finish it. Be sure to reserve your table, they were turning people away all night due to a party they had coming in.

what's up in the kitchen?
Everything was perfect except the main dish always seem to take a very long time to arrive at the table. Not the first time.
