    Our server was awesome. His name was Adrian. We got sat outside which was a little noisy but also because we got sat next to a large party. It was my boyfriend’s birthday so I was hoping for a seat inside but we dealt with it. Food was good. We had the burata, Caesar salad,filet, and bread pudding. The whiskey sours were very good so shout out to the bartender. Pretty view of the bridge.

    Where do I even start. My wife and I celebrate our anniversary here and it has been the best dinner we’ve had in years. The hosts was great gave us a table with a view of the bay bridge. He also gave us a congratulations card signed by the staff. Our server was the best. She was very attentive all night. Food was delicious, we got the New York steak with sides of Mac and cheese and the mash potatoes. Best mash potatoes out there. The restaurant gave us complimentary champagne for our anniversary and a small dessert. Absolutely loved this place. 100/10 definitely recommend this restaurant.

    I went here for my Anniversary dinner. This was the worst service I ever received at a steak house. We had to hunt out server down ever time we needed anything. If this place didn’t have the views of the bridge they wouldn’t survive. The food was tasty but room temperature . The bathrooms seemed like they weren’t cleaned in weeks. I have received better service from franchises like , TGI Fridays, and Olive Garden. I hope they improve to offer better experiences for the guest who come in the future.

    Only negative about the whole experience was the table next to us with five young ladies that would not stop with the social media, pictures, and ring light. The food was stellar, our server was wonderful, everything else was fantastic. The girls were obnoxious.

    I had really high hopes for this place. I'd been here about 6 years ago and had a really good experience. My boyfriend and I went last night and asked to be sat next to a window. Within a few minutes there were multiple ants. I killed them and went about eating our bread. As they continued, we asked to be moved. Upon being sat, the waiter and waitress had a little disagreement about us being sat in her section - a little uncomfortable. Once our food arrived, the steak was cold. When we ordered dessert....guess what arrived. More ants, at table number 2. I'd have expected a manager to at least have come and greeted us and ask if they could have turned around our experience. We will stick to Mastros or Harris the next time we are in the city.

    We got there early and had a drink. Really awesome, explaining how the components of the espresso martini were made in house. Dinner was perfect. The salad, the Epic steak, the truffle mac & cheese, the Julia Childs potatoes were all perfect! Dana took amazing care of us! Just such a fabulous experience.

    First time at Epic and it was a great experience. I ordered the filet mignon & it was amazing, so tender and flavorful! The side of brussel sprouts were very tasty as well. The mac n cheese was salty for my taste, so I wouldn’t order that again. The crab cakes were also good and the presentation of them was exquisite. I ordered a cocktail, can’t remember the name, but it was made with tequila and it has a subtle spicy kick to it. Overall, I enjoyed my time and food at Epic and would return again.

    Having been a frequent patron I have a standard for Epic. My recent visit fell short. From the waitress bringing us bottled water at a charge to getting under cooked Julia’s potatoes sending them back and getting them returned burnt with black burn areas. This time is wasn’t up to par.
