    If you appreciate good food, outstanding service, and a fabulous patio brunch on the water with views of the bridge, EPIC Steak is the place to go. In addition to the delicious oysters, crab salad appetizer, truffle fries, Julia's potatoes, Acme bread, and generous martinis, the current offering of crab Benedict is one of the best things I've eaten. Perhaps, this is thanks to their new chef. All the servers are great. Joseph and Jesse provide high-quality service with a very fun twist, knowing how to "read the room." Everyone that comes to the table to provide any service, walks up with a smile and happy disposition. Several people have worked there for the years I've been going. (Hopefully, that's an indication of great management.) It's a wonderful place to bring friends for a special occasion.

    Epic was Epic, this time we had the perfect table experience! Started with Steak Tartar (should be thicker meat but the taste was awesome) and Burrata (on my opinion too sweet but ok). Filet Mignon was tender and very good taste with sauces provided. Sparkling wine rose from Tasmania is good and the desert as courtesy was the surprise offered by Jose, our waiter that made all this perfect experience happened. This is the differential of Epic, the greatest staff that make you feel with friends, the atmosphere of the Bay Bridge and of corse the excellence on quality food. Thanks.

    I've been to epic 2 times. Each time felt like a completely different restaurant. Unfortunately your experience depends heavily on your server. The first time the food was more flavorful and our server was very attentive. The second time our food was cold, lacked flavor, and our server basically forgot about us. I noticed he spent more time with a different table. I don't know if it was because we were younger and he didn't expect us to tip well or what the reason could be regardless I was disappointed. Still this restaurant is beautiful and definitely worth trying at least once.

    We recently treated our daughter to dinner at EPIC Steak for her 16th birthday. The team at EPIC, beginning with Jackie, did an incredible job making her birthday dinner truly "epic"! The EPIC team made her feel welcome and truly special as she celebrated her big day. Incredible service, food and view made everything perfect. Thanks so much to the entire team!

    Came to celebrate my brother’s birthday. The food was okay; not any better than last time, the portion were small compared to our last dinings. No complimentary dessert, maybe that’s not a thing here.

    My wife and I were there to celebrate our anniversary. We had late afternoon reservations and a table outside. The service was great and we had a nice relaxing evening. We took our time and never felt as though we were being rushed. They even had an anniversary card for us that was signed by the staff. The food was amazing!! The only improvement I would love to see is a few more dessert choices. Over all great experience. My wife was extra happy when she spotted Joe Montana arrive and enjoy a few drinks with his wife and grand daughter 😍

    The outdoor setting is perfect. The food needs closer attention. Medium rare was medium. Sides were sloppily presented. The service was great as well as the beverage program. Just a few tweaks needed.

    We went here to celebrate my husbands birthday. When we sat down they immediately handed him a birthday card signed by the staff which was really cute. Our waitress was wonderful. My husband and son ordered steaks. One was supposed to be medium rare and the other medium. The medium was fine on the outside but totally rare in the middle. The medium rare was so rare that my husband could not eat it. He sent it back and it was still so rare that it was not edible . He sent it back again and this time it came back medium but he ate it since we were finished with our meals at this point. The staff was very friendly but for the prices they are getting, there are so many better steak houses in the area. Not worth the money.

    The chief at a high end streak house should know the difference from med rare to well done. I should have know we were in trouble when all the sides showed up, but no steak. When the steak finally showed up it was clearly well done and when I ask the server, if this was med rare steak or a well done one. However, now it was to late to return the steak and the steak was so over cooked it was like Chewing in rubber. So dinner ended up being the sides. My frustration is the play dumb act by the restaurant. If going to change me 135 dollars for a steak. You should know how to cook it!!

    Service was slow. Steak temp wasnt cooked correctly. Ordered a medium and came almost a well done. Didn’t have time to correct it as we needed to catch the game. For those prices, the cook can stick in the thermometer and check if its cooked properly.
