Fantastic service. We spilled some water and we were quickly brought to another table. In addition we received such goodies as an amuse bouche, macaroon desserts and even a complimentary Perrier to bring back to the room

We were there for winterlicious. The food was good and service was excellent. I lik specially the kids menu. The price was decent and it was affordable and definitely not overpriced and can afford to revisit many times.

I may be biased because I was given a breakfast voucher for the buffet and therefore didn’t pay for my meal, but that said, the fruit was impeccably presented (peeled grapefruit! What a luxury!), the muesli was the most delicious I have ever had—complete with cherries, the scrambled eggs were flavoured just right, and I could have eaten the mushrooms all day. Expensive, but if you have a good appetite, may well be worth it.

What a grand experience we enjoyed at Epic! Although we attended during Winterlicious, we opted to order off the regular menu. We were warmly greeted by the host and immediately escorted to our table. The waitstaff was attentive without being disruptive, and took care to keep our wine glasses full. The food (we had the lobster bisque and crab cakes to start followed by the scallops and branzino) was beautifully presented and quite delicious. We followed with decaf, port, and chocolate cake. The room was quiet and our table felt private and intimate. Highly recommend! Thanks, Epic for providing us with our most memorable meal while visiting Toronto.

We went for Winterlicious an were not particularly impressed. Salad was nice. Soup was ordinary. Flank steak was a little chewy. Did not seem to be marinated. Sauce was nice. Could have done with more since the steak hadn't been marinated. Desert was just okay
Overall we were not impressed
Service was very good

The food was fresh and delicious and the server was very attentive. As well, the ambience allowed us to speak to each other at normal voice levels and we could actually hear each other. Highly recommend for any occasion.

It was the first time for everone in our party at Epic restaurant brunch on Sunsay.
The ambiance and food quality was great at a very reasonable rate.
Nestled in grand old Royal York of course enhanced our experience however we all came to the concensus that the brunch menu could perhaps do with some upgeading and additional variety.
Service was great and everyone enjoyed the event otherwise.

From the greeting to the finish, the service was impeccable. The food was very good. I had clam chowder with stripped bass. The clam chowder was very rich. The stripped bass was very good and the vegetables were excellent. I was with 4 others and all enjoyed their meals. The ambiance is wonderful and we certainly never felt rushed. We were there for a business lunch during a very busy time when the hotel was hosting a large event but the restaurant was properly staffed so that service did not suffer.

The appetizer was octopus which was so tender. This dish also contain sausage, baby potato bits and few other ingredients plus a yummy sauce. I love octopus and this disk was extremely well executed. Mains were scallops and duck breast. As always, both were perfectly cooked. The duck was especially good with subtle flavouring. The sommelier recommended the Flowers chardonnay from California and it was a perfect match to both dishes. Service was great as always. We love coming back to EPIC and it never disappoints.

The New Year's Eve event was well planned and the meal was delicious. The service was impeccable. The band was very enjoyable.
My only regret is that the restaurant allowed dogs on the premise. The guests, next table over, let their white fluffy dog out of their pet carrier. The couple even danced with the dog in their arms. Not so sanitary so close to the chocolate dessert table !!!

The service was outstanding along with the food. The live music was perfect for the occasion. The band was amazing and I would recommend the restaurant to all my friends.
