    I went here for my Anniversary dinner. This was the worst service I ever received at a steak house. We had to hunt out server down ever time we needed anything. If this place didn’t have the views of the bridge they wouldn’t survive. The food was tasty but room temperature . The bathrooms seemed like they weren’t cleaned in weeks. I have received better service from franchises like , TGI Fridays, and Olive Garden. I hope they improve to offer better experiences for the guest who come in the future.

    We got there early and had a drink. Really awesome, explaining how the components of the espresso martini were made in house. Dinner was perfect. The salad, the Epic steak, the truffle mac & cheese, the Julia Childs potatoes were all perfect! Dana took amazing care of us! Just such a fabulous experience.

    First time at Epic and it was a great experience. I ordered the filet mignon & it was amazing, so tender and flavorful! The side of brussel sprouts were very tasty as well. The mac n cheese was salty for my taste, so I wouldn’t order that again. The crab cakes were also good and the presentation of them was exquisite. I ordered a cocktail, can’t remember the name, but it was made with tequila and it has a subtle spicy kick to it. Overall, I enjoyed my time and food at Epic and would return again.

    Having been a frequent patron I have a standard for Epic. My recent visit fell short. From the waitress bringing us bottled water at a charge to getting under cooked Julia’s potatoes sending them back and getting them returned burnt with black burn areas. This time is wasn’t up to par.

    My husband and I were extremely excited to come to Epic Steak while on our weekend trip to SF. We knew it was on the pricier end, but we were looking forward to a great meal. I feel like great service is a reasonable expectation at any establishment, but especially one where you’ll be spending $350+ for 2 people. Unfortunately, we felt that’s where Epic Steak truly was lacking. Maybe our server was having a bad night or just got overwhelmed, but he only stopped by one time after we got our meal. Our meal was brought out by someone else (which potentially is a standard thing), but even our check was brought by someone who said nothing to us. It felt like we weren’t getting the same service as the tables around us, who I could hear getting suggestions from their waiter, asking what they’re celebrating, etc. While the steak was great, we didn’t like the truffle mac. I don’t think I’d choose to go back.

    The Tomahawk was on the small side and the meat was pre-cut which I didn’t care for. I think seafood platter was over priced given the size of the oysters and the shrimp. The oysters were not substantial in size for the plater. The sides dishes were limited. But overall, the restaurant was nice.The African Male waiter during our visit was AMAZING !! He covered up the lack of other expected attributes of the restaurant. This was not so EPIC of an experience. Probably won’t be recommending it in the future.
