    Brunch on a beautiful day in San Francisco, overlooking the bay -- it's hard to get better than this. The Bay Bubbles "cocktail" is a great bargain, the oysters delish, the crab cake Benedict divine. The service is absolutely top notch, we felt welcome and pampered.

    My girl friend and I went for our anniversary. And we had a great time. Michael our server greeted us telling us Happy Anniversary. Then we noticed a greeting card for us that multiple people signed congratulating us on our anniversary. The view was amazing and we got there right at sunset. The Bay Bridge was lit and it made it soo romantic. The steak was great. I got the Rib Eye which was cooked to perfection while my gf ordered the New York steak. For sides we ordered Mac n cheese and potato purée. It was soo good. 5/5. We will go again next time we are in the city. Thank you for making it a night to remember.

    We had the mac & cheese and dungeness crab, we shared a 6 oz steak, and enjoyed the Caesar salad. I went with the wine suggestion of my waiter…and was not disappointed. I’ve been here about 20 times and I’m never disappointed. The view is wonderful, The staff are warm, kind, patient and accommodating…and the food is fresh and delicious every time.

    We are locals and chose your restaurant for a enjoyable Father’s Day brunch. While our server was very nice, our food took forever. Many guests who arrived after us received their food before us and our orders were nothing extravagant. My son and husband ordered cheeseburgers (medium). They arrived well done and even the cheese was burnt. Our daughter in law ordered chiliquiles (something she orders at Epic each time for brunch). It was so spicy she wasn’t able to eat it. We had a one year old with us who was starting to be impatient since we had waited so long for our food. Otherwise, we would have sent everything back! Very disappointing. Not sure what the issue was as the restaurant was not that busy.

    Celebrated a friend’s birthday. We brought 3 bottles and paid corkage ($35 per bottle) - it was an easy experience. We ordered the beef tartare, burrata, oysters, and bread and butter to start. The beef tartare was very nice. Burrata was underwhelming. Oysters were VERY good. I would return for them. We shared the tomahawk steak amongst 4 of us. I don’t recommend the tomahawk. It was no doubt a great steak but not worth $140. It’s advertised as 42oz but 10 of that is bone and about 5 of that is fat and tendon. Sides are small, we got the truffle mac and cheese (okay), and Julia Childs potatoes (also okay). Green beans were nice too. The dessert wowed us. The strawberry shortcake was surprisingly the best. Bread pudding was excellent. Sundae was also very good. Overall it was a very nice experience. Our sever was great and I will probably be back but I’ll order a different cut of steak and different sides.

    good food but pricy you would expect for these prices to get some vegetables as a dressing . and perhaps free bread to start. i compare these prices to Michelin star restaurants and definitely meats were good but variation was not comparable we had a good time, wonderful weather, and excellent meats

    Solid steakhouse experience. I thought their medium rare was closer to rare though than medium. Sides were solid, service was solid, lobster was yummy. Dining under the bridge is priceless. Corkage of $35 waived with bottle purchase. The Gruner I purchased off the list was an excellent choice to start.

    You are definitely paying for the views. Food was just ok, nothing outstanding for the price. When we had service it was excellent and everyone was so nice and welcoming. However service is slow and likely due to being short staffed. Must bring patience and understanding.

    Outstanding. Just astonishingly good. Best steaks we’ve ever had. Special occasion birthday visit and nothing was too much trouble, including the hand signed birthday card and candle mounted jauntily on my dessert. Seriously good, if you visit SF and you like steak you must come here - worth every penny, thank you so much

    "I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The potato-leek soup was amazing and the Bibb lettuce salad was refreshing. The table was split on the monkfish – one person thought it was great, but another felt that the tastes didn't quite mesh. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."

    We had not been to Epic in a while, more often we go to the WaterBar. We had such a delightful experience we will be back often. The food was outstanding, the menu offered a good selection, even for the two in our party who do not enjoy a good steak. The service was fabulous. Candice, our waitress suggested a great Pinot Noir, as Foodies with a love of great wine we were delighted with the choice. The outside dining area was perfect, it really was easy to carry on a conversation in the open air.
