Good food and service in a nice setting with views of the bay. We particularly appreciated the increased variety of pescatarian options on the brunch menu.

Our soups came with my husband’s main meal. Which he ate then it took forever to get our main meals for myself and my girlfriend. Then my meal was wrong and cold along with my friend’s lunch too. The whole experience was terrible basically which has never happened before.

While I can see why the possible changes due to being closed so long due to pandemic, this place should rise above having to do this. Where bread and butter used to be free now they charge for it. Also serving portion has shrunk. I hope the serving portion was just on the night I went and not a thing being done to save money for the future.

Probably my worst experience at this location. The waiter was simply not up to par. I had much higher expectations based on previous visits

The food was great and our service was outstanding. The outdoor seating at Epic is our favorite in the city. There are plentiful heat lamps and the entire experience was top notch. Looking forward to visiting again soon.

Always love the patio! Wait staff and bartender accommodated my
lemoncello cosmopolitan request! yummy! oysters and crab cocktail were delicious and the branzino with the change of asparagus was excellent!... we've been coming here for years as early on they accommodated our little dog out there - unfortunately she's gone but we still enjoy EPIC!

Honestly I was very disappointed with the meal and the experience :( I’ve been before and thoroughly enjoyed it! My 50$ filet was dry and flavorless.. the steak frites were bland. The Julia Child’s potatoes were delicious!

Everything always seems overpriced but worth it for the view - except not this time; the food was just not good.

The service was also disappointing. Our waitress took about 15-30 minutes in between checking-in on us and seemed almost irritated with our presence?

The view cant be beat though! Always magical - guess Waterbar is the only option moving forward

Lovely dinner outside by the Bay Bridge. It was so lovely.
The scampi was a wonderful dish, the polenta was superb and my filet was perfect.
Loved all of it.

We love going to Epic and speaking with Amber! She's great and so personable. Food was really good as was service. Our minor complaint is that there was a TV overhead which felt like a light was going on and off behind us. Since no one appeared to be watching, it could have been turned off.

EPIC truly lived up to its name. The food and service were amazing. The ambience was lovely. The team also noted our request for a warm table and gave us a choice of tables accordingly - one of which came with the most beautiful view of the bridge and sunset / moonrise. We also felt very safe with their COVID-19 protocols. We could not have asked for a better experience and highly recommend EPIC.

We’ve been here before and loved it. This time was a bit different. The view is still fantastic and the steaks are great. The rest of the food was OK, although the lemon meringue dessert was over-the-top sweet with very little lemon taste. The service, however, was not as good as the prices and reputation would lead you to believe it should be. We got our drinks in a timely fashion but didn’t get napkins or cutlery until our food arrived. Between entrees and dessert there was a wait until the table was cleared and our order taken, but during this time of COVID it was OK. After dinner, however, when we were obviously ready to leave and the table was full of dirty dishes, we waited 5-6 minutes, trying to find our waiter and even then had to call him over to get our check. Minor annoyances perhaps. And perhaps it was an off night although it didn’t seem to be particularly busy. Because of the view and the steaks, we’ll probably give it another try in the future when things are easier.

Epic was epic. We left our card at the table upon leaving and they were kind enough to look up my phone number from my online reservation to call and let us know. Thanks so much! Steaks were delicious.. the truffle pasta was nothing to write home about.. truffle Fries however were SO good, and then the chocolate mouse dessert with homemade marshmallows was the best way to end our late lunch 💯💯💯 Can’t top the view and truthfully, it’s so very nice to eat in an actual patio area and not some makeshift street eating area.

One of the best views in the bay. Glorious outdoor seating with plenty of spacing between tables. Excellent burger. First experience with bacon so crunchy that it could make your teeth crack so chalking it up to reopening.

We visit often. This is the second time the quality of the steak has been a disappointment. Steaks not cooked to the requested temperature and quite hard work to eat. There are better steaks in town which is a shame. Location, service, wine list and ambience all first rate.

Terrible service, they say you have a 1 hour time limit but it was 15 minutes before we even got our drink order in. they weren’t busy at all, so there was no excuse. it was an hour before we got our main course. dessert was average at best.

selection of food was pretty weak for how average of a steakhouse it was. will not return.

Our first dinner out in 2 months - and well worth the 'enforced' wait. The ambience, food, service and view are excellent. We loved it so much have made regular weekly reservations. Very happy to have this restaurant in our neighborhood!

Did Epic for Valentines and it did not disappoint. As usual the food and the service were very good and the views of the Bridge are awesome. Been coming here for at least once or twice a year for the past 10 years and will continue to do so.

Besides the food being incredible, the view of the water at night lit up by the lights of the bay bridge was impecable. Epic steak provided patio heaters for every table to make the outdoor covid dining experience outstanding.
