Great Food! Delicious Filet Miagnon. Juicy tender and tasty. Nice mood lighting and excellent customer service and Red Headed Waitress. However, it’s way too loud and very difficult to have a conversation. It was a business dinner. Thank god it wasn’t a date. The noise level spoiled the dinner. I wouldn’t go back for only that reason. In addition, even though I booked in advance and asked for a view window, we got seated almost in a back corner obstructed view table. That’s sucks!!! I felt like I was sitting in the upper deck at the LA Coliseum.🤨🤨🤨🤨🤨🤨🤨🤨 Go Old School Next time to the Cliff House Restaurant and Guaranteed to get a view window if requested and noise level is perfect for conversstion

The whole experience was amazing ! We were visiting from Atlanta and this place was recommended to us... hands down the best steaks we’ve ever had! We both got the filet mignon and shared the potatoes and Brussels. Everything was incredible and the service was just as great! Definitely recommend this place and you’ll get a nice view of the bay bridge :)

For the top-tier steakhouse prices that EPIC charges, they should be able to properly cook and season a steak. In my party of 3, we all ordered the ribeye ($66), medium-rare. They all arrived cooked differently -- mine raw and cold on the inside, one rare, and the third actual medium-rare. The steaks were also under-seasoned.

The location and view are outstanding, but the main event of a steakhouse should be the steak, and that disappointed.

I had the bacon cheddar burger. I was a little disappointed due to the bacon was burnt and the burger was sitting in a small puddle of grease. French fries were very good!

The filet mignon presented to me was below average in terms of cuts of meat and preparation. Very disappointing. My children think I was “yelling” at the staff when in fact I was communicating my disappointment when I sent it back. Too bad because the restaurant is beautiful and the service was excellent. Who decides to present such a low grade quality of beef to a customer??? EPIC should know better. Thank goodness it was my filet and not my daughter’s. We won’t be returning.

steak was great
prime rib was ok
they forgot one side and one apertif
for $500 (for four people) i think i could have done better somewhere else

We had a large party of 10 celebrating a birthday. The ambiance in the shadow of the Bay Bridge is lovely, but the food was sub par especially when you consider the price level. Neither the menu nor the waiter mentioned that our fillets would be swimming in a red wine reduction sauce which I would have never ordered plus the quality of the meat was extremely fatty. There are many more steakhouse options in SF that I would choose over this one!

Everything was great, everyone in my group enjoyed their meal except for my meal. I had ordered a piece of steak and it was not warm or "hot" fresh out of the heat. I can tell it was sitting for a while. I was disappointed with my meal but like I said everyone else's orders were great.

Our server was great-very attentive. I was very disappointed w/ the steak-as was my friend. I was shocked that it didn’t have much flavor and it didn’t taste like a quality meat. I had high expectations and was sadly disappointed, I love steak and I wanted to try epic-probably the only steakhouse I haven’t been to in the city. I was sadly disappointed

Overall, disappointing. Tuscan porterhouse ordered medium rate was overcooked and flavorless; Caesar salad less than ordinary. Great cocktails and impressive wine list could not overarch unbearable level of noise. Impossible to hold a conversation, even at an intimate table for two. We read this was the best steak house in San Francisco. No.

EPIC was not Epic. It was mediocre. Yes they gave us a nice little anniversary dessert but it was over priced. Their view of the bay is nice if you are seated outside. The taste of the food wasn't anything spectacular. It was okay and okay is not good enough when you are paying more than $30 dollars a plate. Upscale pricing for casualnding experience. Their service was good. The waiters and servers were amazing to us.

Service was great, Food was not so great. My wife’s fillet mignon came out mushy in the middle (not consistent with the texture of steak) and smelt bad. I’m unsure what was wrong with it, but unfortunately she had already eaten the other half(which was not smelly or mushy). The staff was very apologetic and gave us a complimentary desserts and wine. I’m sure it was a bad cut, however, the chef preparing a $60 piece of meat should have been aware and stopped it from being served. To top it off, we are from San Antonio, Texas and it was our anniversary dinner :(
Despite the free dessert and good service, we left with a bad taste in our mouths’ and it ruined our evening with upset stomachs for the remainder of our SF trip

A party of 3, we spent over 500usd with minimal alcohol. The food was, at best, OK. You are essentially paying for the view. So many tastier and more affordable options in SF, I cannot understand why anyone would return. The highlight, our server was great and very easy on the eyes...I brought my leftovers home for the cats, is that speaks to my level of enthusiasm for the food.

The waiter was friendly, knowledgeable, enthusiastic about his job, obviously he likes his employer and his job, yet he had that rare ability to let’s visit amongst ourselves. We never lacked for anything,water, more coffee, etc.

I had overseas visitors who were delighted with everything including our pre-lunch drinks at the Water Bar!
