    Summary: Seating choice was terrible, food was okay, would not come back or recommend We were told the outside was full which is fine because I get it being their attraction, but we were put in a secluded room which had no one the whole time. Would be fine for a big group but don’t see why they’d isolate two of us like that. There were plenty of seats available that weren’t close together in the open space inside. Drinks were good Atleast. My boyfriends steak was fine but my chicken was extremely bland. For the price I’d expect some flavour. Don’t waste your money on it I beg you. Server was fine no complaints there. We didn’t have napkins on our table though. Again, we seemed to be sat in a place that shouldn’t have been for people having dinner honestly. Was supposed to be a date night and honestly our experience should’ve been A LOT better with what we ended up paying. Very disappointed

    The service made up for the food. It was good but for the price point, expectations not met. Focaccia was bland. Shitaki carpaccio was very tasty, but for about 7 mushrooms almost 30 bucks. The lobster was again juicy and tasty but small for price point. I eat out often and never am I concerned on price but this was excessive. None the less service was exceptional!

    Birthday high tea. Over priced disappointment. Sandwiches had been plated so long the top bread was dry. Scones were delicious but high tea is about scones and there were only 2 small ones. Focus more on scones and tea sandwiches, less on the sweets. No one needs that many sweets, despite them being tasty. Server apologized that they were understaffed but not until we were leaving very disappointed

    The experience was good so far. I booked this place for my friend‘s birthday occasion, and they gave us 2 birthday chocolate truffles! It was very sweet of them. Service was excellent. The high tea tower was okay. You get individual tea pots and you get to change the type of tea after the first round.

    I had always wanted to come to Epoch ever since I saw the outdoor terrace online. When I made my reservations online, I indicated that I wanted to sit outside. When we arrived at the restaurant, we were told we couldn't sit outside due to a special event. I would have really appreciated being contacted and informed that we would not be able to sit outside. I provided my name, number, and email when I made the booking. I tried to call but there was no answer, no voicemail. It just seems like the restaurant is not being transparent.

    Attended Epoch for high tea with a colleague. Both the tea and service were wonderful (Kelly was very attentive). The scones were delicious and flaky, and the sandwiches were equally delicious. The desserts were overly sweet for my taste. My friend and I opted for a glass of speaking wine which was definitely not worth the additional $18/glass (Niagara product). The cost per person with tax and tip totalled $100 which is more than it's worth.

    Absolutely great experience from the time you enter. The service, food, ambience is just superb. We were fortunate to sit on the patio which is just lovely. It began to rain slightly and the staff were so impressive and efficient to move things around almost seamlessly. Our first time here and we look forward to a quick return. Kudos to all.

    A light supper before a TSO concert so we opted for Epoch. We asked to move tables from our first assignment because some sports jock celebrity insisted on shouting into his cell for what sounded like a media interview. Service was competent and quick for shared charred cucumber “salad” & mushroom focaccia. We choked on the $70 minimum price for a bottle of wine & opted for individual glasses & draft beer.

    Overall everything was lovely. The food and tea was delicious. Only hiccup so to speak was the fact that we arrived first with no other patrons in the room and proceeded to get served last, after several other tables were seated. We had to flag down a server to get water at the start and waited a while to get the tea served. Seems like they forgot our table. Once it finally was served, it was fine. Servers were friendly and polite. I would still recommend the afternoon tea.

    I contacted the restaurant several times beforehand because we were going to celebrate a birthday. I asked for a couple of special requests. The person I spoke to said she was gonna make sure it was taken care of and we ended up arriving they had forgotten what we requested. Overall the food was really good and the ambiance is nice. Just think the service from the staff needs a bit of improvement

    Loved our dinner on the terrace BUT menu was very limited and pricing was way too high. A glass of Italian red wine $25?? A NY Striploin $69?? Caesar Salad $26?? Need more simple choices which are better priced but other than that, it was beautiful/comfortable/very very pleasant. We shared the $29 hamburger and had a glass of the Ontario sparkling wine and dessert was spectacular. All-in-all we will return IF you tweak the menu/pricing so we can afford to go. I'm saying below we would NOT recommend right now with this menu/pricing. Thanks - Ken & Sharon.
