The view is spectacular and the food is perfectly cooked. I had the tomato soup with clams which took an old standard and made it deeply delicious and satisfying; gourmet comfort food. The filet mignon was cooked as ordered and fabulous. Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable, he made great wine suggestions to complement the food.

Love this restaurant!

The view of the Bay Bridge at night is amazing, and I love the warm inviting atmosphere.

The Builder your own salad is perfect for me, and the filet was incredible!

Highly recommend Epic!

I/we’ve been going to Epic for about 6yrs. The location just below the Bay Bridge is probably what brought us there the first time. The inside ambience is just about my favorite “in the world”. The steaks have always been good and the service ok but one could see slight room for improvement. Well, this last visit showed Epic to be running at max output on all pistons. My steak was absolutely perfectly prepared and served. The views of the Bay Bridge and her new lights made for quite an evening.

Excellent food and even better service by our waiter, Robbie E. He went out of his way to make my wife’s bday special. He brought her a special cake and offered to take our picture. I think his service stood out above the food which was hard to do.

The food and service are superb! In the evenings, with a clear and direct view of the Bay Bridge, paired with the restaurant’s ambient lighting, the atmosphere is perfect for a special occasion or romantic evening out.

They tried, but couldn’t time the opening of our wine with the appies or the drinks and the meal. Steak was overcooked to the point of dryness and they even messed up making my sundae after I filled out their card. Had to send back their attenpt at making a chocolate martini because it was so horrible. Great view but we were sadly underwhelmed and it was not an Epic birthday for my wife. I informed them Syrah of time to have a Birthday desert and they even messed that up. The server tried but could not overcome all the flaws.

The overall experience was good, one thing I was disappointed was the attitude of the server. As international student me and my friends's english is not as good as native. Since we kind of could not understand the menu, and asked him ( I felt he was listless to explain compared with the way he explained to others) the server's way to talk to us and serve us totally changed.

The Bridge was great. The ambiance was great. Service was great.
But, food was average (( and really overpriced... my ribeye could be much better without “fat oil soup” on top of it...
One really tasty thing to remember is bread !!! With salt...simply delicious 👍
But butter seemed like margarine ((
Great choice of wines;) very expensive...

We took 8 people to dinner after asking some local dignitaries which steakhouse was San Francisco's best. They all recommended Epic Steak and we were not disappointed. We all had different steaks and each of us loved them. They came out perfectly cooked as per our orders. The side dishes were wonderful, as was the wine. Steaks just can't get any better!

Très bonne table avec des prix à la hauteur de la qualité comme d habitude à sf. Le 6oz filet suffit largement pour un plat principale ($46). La portion de 28oz est carement énorme (900gr) . La vue le soir est top et le service très pro et convuvial . A recommander ! Pas de parking attenant mais le quartier regorge de places dispo le soir.

Overall, a very nice experience. The food was tasty... it was well seasoned and served hot (I find that temperature is often a problem for even the finest restaurants).
However, I have a few recommendations to make the dining experience an outstanding one:
1) Butter warmers needed! No "reputable" restaurant that serves lobster should operate w/o them. Hot butter is a necessity to fully enjoy a lobster experience;
2) Provide enough portions of the side servings to share... We ordered the Julia Childs potatoes. While they were delicious, the serving size was just enough for one (I am not a huge eater, but thank goodness my hubby did not want more than a small spoonful);
3) Add blue cheese dressing to your list of options. The crumbles are nice, but dressing would be the "icing on the cake;" and finally,
4) Please ensure that your cocktails are served more than 3/4 full. The drinks are fairly pricey (I had the cucumber cocktail which was delicious); however, I felt a bit "shortchanged" due to the amount of open space that existed between my drinks and the top of the glasses they were served in.
