A great little hidden gem! I've seen Epoch pop up in searches before, but I'm so glad we gave it a try this time. Great intimate atmosphere, small but delicious menu, and wonderful service. We will be back!
The new Tasting Menus are great! I especially liked the Chicken Croquet with green buffalo sauce paired with the 9seafood) Voodoo stew.
the wine list is perfect, as well!
Our server Tim was wonderful, absolutely great service!
The food was excellent and the service was great, even tho it was very crowded. This is a fun place for dinner - a mix of locals and students with their parents and grandparents. Not to be missed!
The staff was very friendly. Unfortunately, the food was very disappointing. In particular the cheese plate and stew.
hadn't been for a year. menu was very creative and all staff were super open with communications (including the chef).
Had a very enjoyable dinner at Epoch on Friday evening. Good variety on the menu, professional wait staff, nice environment. Will go back soon.
We had a great time. Our server was the best, and the food was excellent!
Epoch, at the Exeter Inn in Exeter, Nh is an intimate offering with excellent apps and entrees. In the spring, there is also a lovely patio for a pre-dinner drink.
food and service was amazing. Excellent sides and specials were great.
LOVED Epock at The Exeter Inn! Staff was friendly, meal came out quickly and was absolutely delicious.
I brought my in-laws for the first time. Everyone loved everything about this restaurant. It was the perfect place for a quiet lunch with a small group.
Not so great
Best food in our area, by far. Double-cut pork chops were great - had a fantastic glaze.
We enjoyed our dinner staff was great food was delicious would recommend. Worth the drive .
The new 'Tasting Menu' is great, very inspired! Exceilent food, every time we come!
As we are local and have eaten at the Inn on multiple occasions over multiple years. it was surprising how bland/bad the food was. It stated with the bread basket, Olive Bread? A Caesar Salad that was bland, zero flavor. We have in the past ordered dessert but based on the meal, why take the chance. I have used Open Table for 3 years and this is the first time I have written a response.
Mushroom Melt Toast - yum! ............
They did not have enough help. After sitting down and then ordering our food, we waited for more than an hour before we decided to leave. We left cash for 1 soup and 1 beer plus a few extra dollars. There were many unhappy patrons. Wrong cocktail being made wrong two times, no bread brought to many, the bill trying to be paid, but no one picking it up! Sad, but also annoying when you pan a special night out! If there is not enough help, do not accept so many reservations! You can’t have it both ways, truly disappointing!
Valentine’s Day dinner. The fixed menu had some items that were not good and served cold. Over priced charged for what was served
Our food was undercooked and we got serval wrong orders. The valentine's menu was absolutely horrible. Even having made a reservation the host didn't have our names on the list.
It was a very special Valentines Day dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. The evening couldn’t have been any better. As always the food and the entire staff were wonderful. We have never had a bad experience at Epoch. Thank you all for making our evening very special.
Vern, It was great to see you again! Thank you for taking the time to review us! We really appreciate the kind words ! I will pass them along to the staff! Thanks again! Kieran
Service was very poor
Can tell that staff was not trained properly
When you pay premium for Valentines Day dinner one expects something extra in return
Will not come back again
We have been here several times for brunch and loved it. I have to say, Valentine’s Day dinner was terrible. The food was cold and not that palatable. Portions were also very small. Very long wait time between courses. At least my company was amazing so it just became a joke. We paid almost $250 and left hungry. Disappointing. We will stick to brunch in the future.
As usual, Epoch Restaurant at the Exeter Inn (In Exeter, NH) has a non-typical menu. The chefs preparation is usually very good and atmosphere upscale.
We enjoy the ambience with great service and food.
The overall experience was good. the salad was over dressed. The drinks were generous. We were sitting at our table for almost an hour before any food was brought to us. We had to ask for bread after the salad was brought. The appetizer arrived with the salad. The dinners were good but not generous. Overall if the attention to detail was better, the experience would have been better.
The only negative comment I can say is the lunch menu is very limited. The beef short rib stew was amazingly flavorable. Every item ordered was tasty.
I really wanted to like this place, however, it wasn't meant to be. From a flavorless, watery, Caesar salad to a flavorless tempura (they called it a fritto misto) it was just a downslide of mediocre to bad food. The entrees were no better. Service was okay and attentive for the most part, however, I find it unacceptable to be given to go boxes to pack up myself at the table. This is supposed to be a better restaurant, take it to the back or the server station and pack it up, please. All in all, just save yourself the disappointment and avoid the place. High ceilings with no sound dampening mechanisms added to the din.
This was the first time we've had dinner here since they got a new chef. We were very pleased. I loved the grilled salmon, and my husband really enjoyed the monkfish.
Had a wonderful meal. Waitress was very attentive, leaving us with a well cared for feeling. Would highly recommend for any special occasion.
My companion and I had a very leisurely lunch. The restaurant was quiet, which we appreciated since it is hard for older people to hear in crowded, noisy restaurants. The food was excellent and service was prompt and attentive.
Met our “earliest-open, nearest” requirements. Nothing to write home about.
Epoch has a great menu and a very enjoyable Sunday brunch. Bar area is on the small size but very intimate Adult beverages are a healthy portion and they also serve several local craft beers on tap. Nice place for a dinner or family function. I highly recommend The Epoch Restaurant. Always a good time, good food, and pleasant atmosphere.
We came for what we'd heard was the best burger in Exeter and we did not leave disappoionted.
We found the menu interesting, although it is not up to date online. With distant overhead lighting in the dining room, we found the ambiance lacked intimacy; Being in the spotlight is great on stage, less so at dinner. Still, we had an excellent meal and will happily return at some point. The burgers in particular are excellent. The beef is clearly fresh and high quality, and the toppings are not skimped on and if I recall correctly, locally sourced. Worth the trip, without a doubt.
It was our one year wedding anniversary and we waited 20 minutes after being seated to even have someone come over. I had to tell the hostess nobody came over. It was embarrassing to try and have a nice dinner with my wife to celebrate and have subpar service.
We had a great time I only wish that they helped us out more with dairy free options as my boyfriend cannot eat dairy. Instead, we paid a lot of money for half of the food being something he can't eat. I had to return my steak back 3x as I requested medium well. It was very, very rare almost all of the times.
We had reservations for New Year's Eve (2019) which offered a pre-fixe menu. The food was very good, however, the entrees were the size of appetizers. My husband ordered the tenderloin. The portion was approximately 3 oz., and the potatoes were the size of a butter pat which was under the tenderloin. There were 2 asparagus on the side. We have been to Epoch before for New Year's Eve when they offered their full menu which was excellent. The inn is lovely, but we felt like we had a selection of appetizers for dinner rather than a regular size entrée. I ordered the scallops, which were delicious, however, there were only 4 very small pieces.
Great food, just wish helpings we a bit larger.
Food was very very good
