    Epic Steak is by far San Francisco’s best steak house and one of the top 5 restaurants overall. The food is always consistently excellent and the service exceptional. All of the staff from managing partner Pete Sitnick to the host and servers are so friendly and make you feel so special and welcome. As if the exquisite decor by famed designer Pat Kuleto were not enough , the location along San Francisco’s premier waterfront is unreal. Expect to see views of the nearby Bay Bridge as if it were sitting in your lap. Be prepared to have your expectations exceeded and to treasure the memories of dining here for a lifetime 🥰👍🎉

    I can't think of a better establishment to host a client. Being my first visit to san Francisco, I wanted to find a location with a dramatic ambiance with an excellent wine list and great service. Epic Steak did not disappoint. This was truly one of the best dining experiences ever.

    The overall atmosphere of the restaurant was lively with a beautiful view of the Bay Bridge. The food was good, but a little underwhelming. I ordered the 9 oz filet cooked medium, and was a tiny bit undercooked. It was also very much under seasoned. Its a good thing that they keep salt and pepper on the table, which made it a lot more enjoyable to eat. My boyfriend ordered the ribeye steak cooked medium, but his steak was rare. It also was 40% fat and under seasoned as well. The Julia potatoes were good but very small portioned. Truffle mac and cheese was good but also very small portioned. I did not like the mushrooms at all. The prices for the sides did not match the portions at all. Overall, it was okay, I dont think I would come back.

    Everything was good but the food quality. The Julia Child potato’s were very watery. We have had this problem before and weee told it depends on the chef you get in any given night. Also, the steaks were overly fatty and a bit tasteless.

    Joseph was a wonderful server and the food was delicious as always. We were quite unhappy with the table location as I had requested window or outdoors. We were stuck in a corner near the front doors. We live out of state and are only able to visit a few times a year and I was very disappointed with the location. We also had visitors with us and it was embarrassing

    My boyfriend and I made reservations at this restaurant because the views and food looked amazing. Our standards were met in every way possible. The food was fantastic, the service was spectacular, there wasn’t a thing to improve for our experience. I definitely recommend this place to anyone who’s looking for a nice restaurant with beautiful views! The Bay Bridge is gorgeous from the angle the tables are located at, and the ambience of the restaurant is so romantic and relaxing. We will definitely be visiting again, thank you EPIC!!!

    Price was good 😊 . Comparatively to other restaurants in the area. Food was not as good. I would not consider this not the best damm filet since its not as flavorful as other restaurants. The rib eye was much better. I not would recommend the fries. Other people may have different experiences but thats how I feel.

    The service was good, the food is no match to the expense. However, you are paying for the experience. I do appreciate that there was a reasonable service recovery for a major error on the restaurants behalf. Service recovery is both action and accountability. I want organizations to understand it is okay to say we made an error that placed one of our consumers in an unsafe condition. Not every consumer is litigious but it is important to not word an apology that suggest the consumer was dissatisfied with his meal and that is the reason for the service recovery. No, the product that was delivered was not safe to issue to deliver to a consumer that is visually impaired and must trust that the product is prepared to be safely eaten. This is not intended to be critical of the restaurant or the management. I believe this restaurant is worth visiting. This is an opportunity to take a moment to look at an opportunity to improve.

    I had requested an outdoor table for a celebration with friends I was seeing after 20 years. Our server was fantastic! He was patient and classy. However, the table we were given was not outdoors with the view of the bridge but right by the door in the verandah under a music speaker that was blaring really cheap music. We knew the food is no where close to Prospect, Boulevard or Kokkari. We hoped the view would compensate. we did not get that, neither did we get the ambience thanks to the really crass music that we had to shout over. Will not be returning anytime soon!

    My husband and I went there for our Anniversary. It was such a wonderful evening. It started with an Anniversary card signed by the whole staff and just got better and better. Paul was our waiter and he was so wonderful. He really helped us celebrate. He was also very knowledgeable about everything on the menu and made great suggestions. Their sommelier recommended a wonder Napa cab with we enjoyed every drop! I would highly recommend going there for any special occasion or just a Tuesday!

    Food and service were excellent with one exception. As two women, we were seated at the one small table on the patio so that only one of us had the bay view, whereas two other two-person diners were seated at larger open tables so that both persons could have bay views. We had reservations, were there first with many open tables. We should have been offered the larger tables.

    Quite disappointing. We ordered the variety of oysters that our server did not identify once delivered. The halibut was not what was expected for $44- it was a paltry serving that was not even identifiable as halibut. The lamb was cooked to perfection. The desert selection was in the lines of Baskin & Robbins- we got a hot fudge sundae that was as what would be expected at a B&R, certainly not from a highly rated steakhouse like Epic! In a wonderful city with wonderful restaurants we felt like we could have gotten a much better meal!

    It was an enjoyable dinner, but we were overcharged by $50. They had a special where for $30 extra you get a salad, a side, and a dessert. We were each charged the $30, but we're also charged separately for the sides and desserts. It is impossible to contact the restaurant by phone, to rectify the situation. Our $369 dinner for two should have only been $319. The filet was outstanding, cooked medium. The New York steak, medium rare, was on the tough and fatty side. The two sauces were tasty, but I prefer steak without sauce. Wedge salads were great, though not a typical wedge, mushrooms were amazing, and the Julia child potatoes were just ok. The desserts were good, but not amazing. We had the apple crisp and the s'mores bar. Ambience was great, great bridge view, service was fast and friendly, my biggest gripe is being overcharged by $50 and the restaurant not taking any phone calls. Update: after posting this review, a manager called and has refunded my card and apologized for the mistake. I appreciate the great customer service. Thank you
