Steakhouse
The Main Dining Room features a stunning view of the bay from every table. For those who prefer al fresco dining our Inside Out Room is the perfect place for a romantic dinner or get together among friends next to the cozy fireplace. A custom-built wood fired grill and a large wood burning oven serve as the focal points of Kuleto's design for the restaurant.

The menu features an inventive combination of traditional and contemporary dishes, showcasing everything from fish to fowl, and specializing in a variety of meats and steaks. Handmade cocktails, domestic and imported beers, and a well-selected wine list complement the menu.

We got there early for our reservation time and had to hang out in the bar upstairs. While there, our awesome server, Ryan, offered to set us up in the corner, a half hour ahead of our reservation time. Perfect! We had, what we were told by Nancy, the hostess, "the best seat in the house". The view was stunning of the Bay Bridge with the light installation.
For a steak house, my filet mignon was a bit overcooked for medium rare, but it was still good and I didn't mention it. The french fries on the other hand! Holy hell, they're the bomb!
Had a great time for our 17th anniversary. If you go, definitely ask for Ryan.

I love Epic. It is June of my favorite restaurants in San Francisco. The ambiance is great. Outdoor seating has great fireplace and heating. The view of bay bridge is wonderful. The food is amazing and always perfect. The wine selection is extensive. Always flawless.

The view is everything real nice restaurant manager was real nice great service and was quick to accommodate my issues with my steak. You are paying for the view for the price you could get way better steak else where in the city would go back for drinks and app and the view, but my petite filet was just ok

Food and view of the bridge was great. The shortcomings were the noise level and the lighting was horrible. People were using their cell phone lights to read the menus. Waiters were ok, but lacked the service that you would expect at this type of restaurant. We had to ask for proper utensils, which should be a known when eating steaks.

This place used to be a nice place with great food. It’s not anymore... my chicken was over burnt, the burger was average and the bill way too expensive for the overall experience. Seriously upgrade the food and the menu and refresh the place.

While the ambiance was second to none, the service was terrible. Our waiter never even introduced himself to us. Food was on time but the waiter was terribly unfriendly and standoffish. We won’t be coming back. The price is to high for that type of service.

Great service we’ve ever experienced. The food was also incredible and lived up to the hype.
You can’t go wrong with any of their cuts, Julia Child’s potatoes and broccolini.

Exceptional service from the minute we entered and were greeted by the hostess and assistant manager. Our waiter, Jonathan, was exceptional; friendly, knowledgable about the menu, made excellent suggestions, attentive but not intrusive. Beautiful dining room with a wonderful view of the bay and bay bridge! Can't wait to go back for another excellent evening out!

First time at this restaurant, I've always wanted to try. Parking valet service was great, fast parking and inexpensive, waitime to be seated was minimal, menu changes from lunch to dinner so beware of full menu online won't have the same full selection. Our server Shawn was amazing, great with recommendations down to explaining the ingredients in your entree (just in case the menu is confusing for some) I definitely loved my experience, the food was devine and I even label it as a kid friendly restaurant. I was worried we wouldn't find a plate my son would like, and the server mentioned chicken strips with fries, it was perfect.

Celebrated with our 22nd wedding anniversary and this was our first time dining at EPIC. Our server, Sean, was immaculate. We asked questions about certain dishes and he was spot on with the recommendations. Appetizers were great; the ribeye was phenomenal and the dessert just topped it off. Thanks for making our 22nd anniversary quite memorable.

i'm not really sure I would recommend to a friend even though I ticked yes. I think drinks outside in the afternoon the first time I went was great. I made dinner reservations had to wait 20 minutes even though there were open booths which I had requested. We were directed to a table which was outside (plastic covering) and cold (again, even though the booths were open and we did want one with a view which was available when we first got there but then not so we sat facing the kitchen. Our waiter seemed good in the beginning but became less attentive and we waited for our meal an unusually long time and the food was just ok. I booked this restaurant because of the view and ambience at night which we didn't get and assumed the food was going to be better.

It was our son’s 21st birthday and Epic went all out to make it very special. They welcomed us with great wishes for him, had our table ready ahead of schedule, and our server was beyond excellent with recommendations and photo taking to capture the special day. The food, as always, was excellent and perfectly cooked and delicious.

Staff was sincere in their efforts to provide excellent service but missed their mark. I was asked for my drink order by someone early but they wandered off and never delivered glass of wine. Took several tries to eventually get drink after salad was served. Also we were dining at 830p on a Saturday night but staff seemed in a hurry to wrap it up for the night by 10p which seemed odd. Bar was being shut down, table cloths removed etc. Ordered bread for $4 thinking it had to be outstanding at that price point but was underwhelmed. Wagyu steak was absolute perfection.

Went to dinner here with two of my business associates and had a great meal. Ordered the rib eye and it was one of the best steaks I've had in a long time. The main dining room is lovely and the twinkling lights of the bay Bridge add to the ambiance. Our waiter, Paul was both professional and friendly and added to the the overall experience. Highly recommended!

Decided to have lunch during SF restaurant week. The salad and french fries were excellent, but for a quality steakhouse, we were disappointed that our "medium rare" steaks came out extremely rare with a cold center. We sent one order back, and they were wonderful bringing back a whole new order. Unfortunately, the replacement was just as rare. I was eating the small narrow end of my steak which was perfect but very rare 1/3 in to the steak. The service was excellent so hated to return the second steak, especially when my friend's replacement steak was just as rare as the first. We decided to doggie bag it rather than returning it to the kitchen again.
