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.

Sat outside with a terrific view of the Bay Bridge Lights. Food was good; nice to be able to dine out for a special birthday dinner.

Very pleasant. One of my favorite views. Efficient courteous service and delicious food. So happy to see it open again after having following county shut down protocols. We really appreciate all the work that goes into making a pleasing experience during these most difficult of times,

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.

Special occasion dinner, asked for accommodations to surprise a milestone. They added a card, dessert and had the perfect wine bottle to celebrate with.

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!

Exceptional steak and entree sides, with a beautiful view of the Bay Bridge. Service was very good, as were the drinks. Dessert was good, although limited. Be prepared for an expensive meal.

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.

Great experience. Epic got the outdoor dining thing right (safety without losing the overall experience) from the beginning and did a great job tonight even in pouring rain. Terrific service and a simple menu with consistently good food make it work.

Both our beef dishes were overdone, on the side of "well done" rather than the order we gave as medium for mine, and medium rare for my husband. However, we appreciated the quality of the meat. One glass of wine brought to the table was incorrect, but the waiter kindly brought the requested glass, and left the other for us to drink if we wished. The Bloody Mary before our meal was quite tasty, though there was no plate to put the olive pit, or the lemon wedge upon, just the bare table. Despite the restrictions due to dining outside, the ambience of viewing the lights on the Bay Bridge, and looking out on San Francisco Bay is incomparable.

Steaks are a bit boring. Not a lot of options to flavor it up or jazz it up. A nice rub or at least an option for bernaise, Demi glacé or bordelaise would be awesome! Gratin potato’s are always way undercooked

Went to EPIC for a Friday date night. Turned out to be the last Friday before the lock down. This was our first time here. The food / service and ambiance were great. Hope to return again in the near future after Covid is over. Great views of the bridge and waterfront only adds to this great restaurant.

Epic as usual. We have been enjoying outdoor dining at Epic Steak, and especially, for special occasions. We made reservation for a birthday dinner. We were seated by our usual, favorite server, at an outdoor, upper balcony table with fantastic view of the bay and bay bridge lights, with umbrella and led lights and outdoor heater. The food was fantastic as ever. The servers went above and beyond to help us serve the birthday cake and make the celebration even more special. The mood, at the end, was more somber, because San Francisco is shutting down indoor as well as outdoor dining. Our server will be without a job and income until Jan 4th. We did give him a special and generous tip, but yes, we do need to beat this Covid asap as it affects a lot of people and not a very happy holiday for a lot of people. Epic Steak is always a classy place to dine, whether for a casual lunch, or special occasion dinners. Much love, and until we can dine out again.

Great location outside to view the bay and the Bay Bridge. Service was fine. The waiter had to juggle several parties at once. Food was good but not outstanding for the price. I think you are paying for the view and location. Good wine.

Heat lamps are nice but we froze under the table. Service was attentive for the first part of the meal but I was brought a NY steak instead of the ribeye I ordered. They quickly took it back after flagging down our waiter and replaced it with a ribeye. Unfortunately it was not a great quality cut, it had lots of connective tissue and wasn't flavorful or tender.
