    Steak and lobster were excellent. Corn ravioli was a nice dish and the bar tender made a special drink for my wife. Love the view of the Bay Bridge during the evening and the inside felt open and not crowded even with a full dining room.

    Nice outdoor seating area and the best part was the food. My partner ordered their Rib eye and it was so good. The service was also great, constantly checking in if we were doing good and if we wanted anything else.

    My first time to San Francisco and I made reservations to have dinner at Epic Steak, well I am so glad I did. We were greeted within moments of being seated by our amazing server, Michael who is originally from the East coast like us. He was very attentive and he constantly came over to make sure we had everything we needed. Michael was top notch for sure. The ambiance of the restaurant was just amazing with views of the Bay Bridge and an open floor plan so that no matter where you sat in the restaurant you were able to experience the breathtaking views. The food and drinks topped off this experience. I ordered the lamb chops and my Mom ordered the Ribeye and let’s just say, wow wow wow! The martini’s were tasty and all you needed was one because they know how to makes drinks. The dessert was the icing on the cake. I was 100% satisfied with my experience. I will be back for sure. Thank you Epic Steak.

    Amazing experience! The restaurant honored our request for an outdoor dining experience overlooking the water and the bridge. We were promptly seated at our reserved time and our waiter Dana was friendly and attentive. The food was cooked properly and as requested. Will visit again if we’re ever in the Bay Area.

    We are never disappointed when dining at Epic. A menu fit for foodies, fabulous service, a nice wine list and knowledgeable wine staff. Fabulous views of the Bay both inside or on the outside deck which is more casual and has a fun bar. You can also watch the local sport events on elevated TV's dinning on the outside deck. Although a Steak House it has a great selection of fish and a few lighter offerings.

    Steak, salad and dessert were very good, the sides were not. I don’t mind the price but all the food should be good. Epic charges for bread, disappointing.

    I have been to a lot of steak houses through the years, but none can compare in overall atmosphere, quality and creativity of the food, and the service (by Jackie) at Epic. Our party of 6 had just about every starter - in particular the tartare was perfect, as was the seafood tower and calamari. We had a mix of steaks (and lamb) for dinner along with the Julia Child’s potatoes, macaroni, and string beans. For dessert we had the peach crisp, twix bar and soft serve ice cream. We also had many different cocktails and wine - all perfect. The location is amazing, and as noted, the service was perfection. An outstanding choice for a business dinner, special occasion, date, or everyday dining. Pricey, but worth every penny.

    Overall this is a lovely dinner destination. Beautiful views, pretty decor and fabulous food. We had a strange situation with our server. We placed an order for red wine that was on the menu as a summer special. Our server then told us that people who had ordered that wine said it was very acidic tasting. And that we might want to have a better wine. She offered to choose one for us. She brought the wine menu back to us and highlighted several that were double and triple the price. It was just an odd situation. We ended up with another wine Of our choosing, but it was more expensive. My point being that if the wine was known to be acidic and disliked by other customers, they should not have it on the menu or should inform people that it is longer available. The upsell was just a little offputting.

    I was celebrating a birthday I was on the phone with host. & I double checked to made sure to tell her to let the waiter know we’re celebrating the birthday. Also noted it on Opentable. If I never told our waiter when I went to the restroom we are celebrating a birthday he wouldn’t have known. This is supposed to be fine dining at a steakhouse I shouldn’t have to let them know three times over a simple birthday.

The food was outstanding. It was the perfect place for two along the water. Our food was so good and the portions were hearty. It wasn't small. I want to go back !!

    My partner and I spent our 11 year anniversary here. When I reserved the table I put in the comments that it was our anniversary and to be honest I forgot I did that. When we got seated we were handed a card signed by their staff, wishing us a happy anniversary. It was genuinely the sweetest service we’ve gotten ever. The food was delicious, the server was so kind, the staff that stopped by checked on us to pick up plates, and asked if we needed the heater on. This experience just helped my fiancé and I enjoy our anniversary and pay attention to each other because the staff took care of all of our needs there. Thank you to the entire team!

    Food wasn’t that great for the price. Service wasn’t great either. We were only able to order one drink because the waiter never came by. They also gave me someone else’s food and my meal was over cooked and my partners was over cooked as well. The salad was just lettuce with cheese thrown on it. It was dry and hard to eat cause it was a head of lettuce. I like giving places the benefit of the doubt and it seemed to me that they were short staffed and kinda struggling. I overheard some employees chatting and they were being rude to each other. Seems like maybe we just went on a bad day.
