Unfortunately, overpriced for what was delivered. Not well executed at all. The three of us all ordered steaks and none of the three was cooked correctly. How does that happen at a steak house? Crab cocktail was ok, but prawns in prawn appetizer were borderline mushy. Very disappointing overall. Will not return.

Noisy space and bad acoustics made conversation difficult. Food was fair at best, though the desert was downright awful, a strawberry rhubarb pie. The pie had little taste and chewy crust with candied granola that was HARD. One could easily break a tooth on that stuff.

Our waiter was friendly and competent, probably the best part of the experience. Overall all, though, the restaurant seems to rely on tourist traffic, not culinary reputation.

Overall dinner was delicious for our party of 8. Although 2 of our filets came out incorrectly Epic quickly fixed the problem and had replacements out as soon as possible. Beautiful view of the Bridge a little tight in the corner for a party our size. I would come back again when in San Fran.

It was the greatest night! From your spectacular bar upstairs and the bartenders to Cara! Of course Mike and Jeff are the dynamic duo! The dinner and wine were exceptional! Can’t wait to get back! Such a great energy and vibe! Dan’s selections for food and wine outstanding.

We wanted to try this since we had been to the water bar and the experience was amazing. We were able to get a table with a perfect view of the bridge with no problem. My steak was a perfect medium. My friend’s ordered medium rare and it came out too rare for her to eat. The waiter was apologetic and offered a replacement right away. It took a while to bring her steak back out but other than that everything was fantastic. It’s pricey but o would recommend it for a special occasion without hesitation.

On the bay with gorgeous views. The lights of the bay bridge sparkle in front of you. A wonderful setting. Food is quite good, including fish choices, which is uncommon for a steakhouse. On our trips to San Francisco my wife and I rarely miss at least one meal at this romantic setting

The place has lovely views but unfortunately my experience started poorly from the beginning due to their receptionist bad and unwelcoming attitude . It was unnecessarily pretentious for food that is just ok to bad.

EPIC really knocked it out of the park for us. We were there on our honeymoon and the staff their made it very special for us. First off the view of the bridge at night is spectacular. All the food we ate was very very good. The service was great as well. Overall it’s a restaurant I’d enjoy visiting every time I’m in the area.

Service was spectacular. The hostess greeted me with a big enthusiastic “happy birthday” the manager came to my table to congratulate me and she complemented my wife’s dress (nice touch, made my wife feel special as well) our waiter was polite an unintrusive and had a great team of busboys and food runners that made for a great bday celebration. The only thing that I could fault them is that since we didn’t get dessert (we had plans to go somewhere else for desser) they brought a little cupcake decorated very nicely with a big happy bday chocolate writing that was 3-4 days old, super hard and staled. If they go as far as to print the name of the pastry chef on the dessert menu that person should be checking on the rotation of product.
Very expensive place, wonderful view, great service, totally worth it for special occasions

I was visiting San Francisco with my friend. I picked Epic for dinner as I was there for lunch before and loved the food. The view is breathtaking, so I wanted my friend to see it too. I did make a reservation but only the patio was available when we arrived.The hostess worked far and beyond to get us a table as close as possible by the window as they were pretty full for the evening. I have been to high end restaurants before but never once had a hostess so kind and thoughtful. We had wonderful food and watched the day goes dark and the bridge light up.

Couldn’t ask for more for a birthday dinner. The food was as good as the atmosphere and the view. Luckily we had nice weather and were able to sit outside, but even the indoor seating was open with good views.

I have never had a more perfectly cooked medium steak, and I am always weary that overly pink will mean chewy and bloody. Quite the opposite.

All reviews of the Julia Child potatoes were right on point. You might use your weight watchers points for the rest of the month, but when it tastes that good you don’t care!

Highly recommend! It was kinda pricey, but worth every cent!

There were four of us having dinner for our anniversaries.

The service was excellent, other than being seated next to the noisiest person in the bar area (think maybe he was a little buzzed), it was great!

We were thinking we would be getting an anniversary dessert but that didn’t show up. We were all stuffed, so we weren’t too upset about it.

It’s quite pricey, but we enjoyed our meal there and the ambience was just perfect.

Customer service was excellent . Very attentive and quick . Our server was friendly and professional. Cappuccinos were on point and the scenery was beautiful. Unfortunately, the poor ratings were the food. For the price it was nothing special and we will pay good money for enjoyable food but in this case it just didn’t do justice especially in a city as San Francisco sorry to say.

Amazing waiter.
Great teamwork from entire staff.
Perfect timing on everything.
Delicious on every level.
When you look around in establishment and see that everybody is having their own great experience, it shows that you’re doing something right.
Since coming to the restaurant the year it opened I have not had a less than excellent experience every time.
Also, great dessert/booze pairing suggestions.

There for a special occasion. I feared it would be touristy as it's on the Embarcadero. Not the case at all. Service was awesome. Everything we ordered was tasty and well thought out. Wine list was extensive, albeit heavy on expensive and light on reasonably priced options.

The best thing about this restaurant was the view, we sat outside on the patio and the view was just spectacular it helped with a romantic setting. The food was ok, we had the scallops for appetizers and it was really good but the steaks were just ok. The steaks had good flavor but the switched up how we wanted it cooked my husband wanted medium and I wanted medium well and they switched, the were a little chewy but wasn’t dry they had juice to it.

One dish (the prime rib!) was below average and the rest quite good. Given the high, corporate expense account type prices, that is just not good enough.

It's a big name to live up to, but the steaks were excellent and we had a great view of the Bay Bridge stunningly lit up, so the epic name is justified. The staff were lovely and made the effort to get us a table with a view since we were on honeymoon, which we really appreciated. It is pricey, but for a special occasion it was worth it.
