We went to Epic Steak as we live in London and were on holidays in San Francisco, Epic Steak is at a beautiful location and that is what you pay for , it is the most expensive steak I have ever eaten in all my life, my husband and and I had a starter each a steak and a side each and 4 drinks the bill was 300 dollars which I think is rather expensive, it is definitely not for a romantic night out as it is extremely noisy.
On a positive note the waitress was very friendly.
I have eaten in many steak restaurants all over the world and that meal was nice but not 300 dollars nice.

Everything was great about this place but the meat - arguably the most important part of a steakhouse. Service was excellent and well paced, the server was friendly and knowledgable. The lobster was tender and delicious. However, the main event, a 32oz porterhouse was well below standard for a place like this. The meat itself was not good quality - the flavour totally lacking in what is usually an excellent cut. Lines of sinew running through the meat. In addition, the cook was incorrect - medium rare came out almost blue.

This place got almost everything right except the most important part. Given the price, it simply isn’t good enough.

I enjoy coming to Epic ! Nice lunch here with the scenic view of Bay Bridge from the cozy patio. Good service, food, mimosas, nice selection of wines. A beautiful place to visit when the weather is sunny in San Francisco. The dining room indoors is also very nice. Tables have beautiful, white table clothes. The service staff is attentive. Clean bathrooms. Cozy bar upstairs.

Our special occasion dinner was spectacular with the amazing view of the bay bridge and it’s dramatic light show! We were a party of ten and found the servers to be attentive, gracious and professional. Our food was excellent and highly recommend their steaks - particularly with melted blue cheese!

Amazing food and the waiter treated us as VIP however we were dressed like any tourist without tie and lbd. He recommended meals and we were happy to eat them. 50$for a steak it 's not cheap I know , but part of it the price of the sides and starter were not so expensive. We did not have to pay for water and bread. Really appreciated. It will be a great memory for us ♡♡♡

The views are outstanding, and the food was very good (meat). The only negative thing is that the noise level is very high, and we were there for an special occasion, and was not as "romantic" as we expect. But the overall is very good.

Consistently excellent. Epic is a go-to for special occasions and a splurge dinner. Steak is always perfectly prepared, love the design-it-yourself salad, and the wine list is to die for! Service was impeccable. It's spendy, but worth every penny!

I chose to propose to my girlfriend in front of the Bay Bride as the sun set. I had made reservations and let them know about the special occasion. They did a wonderful job finding us an amazing seat with a spectacular view of the water and the Bay Bridge. The Wait staff was amazing and the restaurant ave us complimentary campaign to help us celebrate out engagement. The food was wonderful and it helped to make the night a perfect one.

The Food was Exceptional and the Service was great - the only minor set back was that weren't seated until 25 minutes after our 8:30 reservation, but they do have a great bar area in which you can wait until your table is ready.

I will definitely go back!!!

My steak was to be well done and came rare even though it was butterflied. They brought me another and it was just ok. For $52.00 fir the steak by itself. That was very disappointing. The rest of the meal was very good.

We had a wonderful first meal in San Francisco here at epic. It was recommended to us and didn’t disappoint! My husband and i started with the shrimp cocktail- amazing! I had the petit filet with Bernadine and Julia’s child potatoes. My husband got the ribeye with the half lobster and all of it was great! It’s a little high but the food was still delicious! Our waiter was very energetic and fun, recommending dishes to us and having casual conversation in between trips back and forth . He also brought a sweet, complimentary dessert from the chef, as he found out that we were celebrating our BabyMoon for the arrival of our first born. Great dinner :)

The service was fantastic; our waiter (I think his name was Lowell) was friendly and informative; the view was fabulous.

My rib eye was the toughest rib eye I think I've ever had; way to lean. I really looked forward to our dinner at Epic, even though the people were great I don't think we'll go back. To expensive for it to not be fabulous.

Anniversary dinner. This place is expensive therefore it should be very reasonable to expect a higher level of quality especially from the kitchen. 2 steaks 80 each = 160 ordered medium....arrived WELL DONE. Sent back...8 minutes later they steaks arrive BLUE CENTER RARE...NO JOKE. Manager comped the meal and apologized. I believe this is one of those tourist driven places with beautiful views...no more. We went to Harris on Van Ness and found what we were looking for, great music, service, food cooked correctly and fantastic martinis ..the views at Epic are nice no doubt but I will not go back if they can't manage the basics of steak 101 and that's cook it right the first time or your fired if can't get it on the second time

Came here for a birthday dinner and was blown away by the service. The steak was great but the level of service we received blew other steak houses in the area out of the water. We constantly had service staff helping us and a manager personally came out to check on everything and wish a happy birthday.

Will definitely come here again, possibly a new tradition.

This was my second time dining at Epic. My first first visit was great and the food was delicious and memorable. However my second visit was not quite up to par. The service was a bit slow after our meals were served it seemed as though the tables with the bigger groups of people were getting all the wait staff’s attention. For a restaurant charging these prices I expect better service. My fillet was a bit fatty however the Macaroni and cheese dish wash was delicious. Also they no longer offer the make it you self sundae... really disappointed about that.

Poor quality of food. The steak they claimed was Top Cut was bad. Mine was cooked medium rare & the fat and muscle were so tough they were uncuttable. For $64 I expected it to be melt I your mouth good. Not tough as a tire. 1/3 was inedible. How'd it pass inspection from their chef

The crab cakes in the soup were cold. The peaches in the Grilled Peach Shortcake were not grilled. The shortcake was more like shortbread. Very disappointed.

And for the price, I expected more. (I’d been there for lunch on another occasion and that was better... just had a salad. Harder to mess up.)
