We’re a bit like our hometown: sophisticated, well-traveled, but grounded in our roots. We believe there’s nothing more important than taking time to dine well with family and friends in a beautiful space. And we have a passion for all things Bluegrass - curing our meats in-house, supporting the region’s diverse farming and food community, and keeping a local-first mindset in everything we do. Epping’s is located in a renovated historic building that once held Epping Bottling Works, home to the hustle and spirit of local entrepreneur John G. Epping. Today, we are proud to honor that history and be part of the energy of downtown Lexington’s Warehouse Block.

    An outstanding dining experience this evening. Although we had dinner here several times before, we sat at the bar for the first time. The service was excellent and the food was equally good. I would highly recommend the banana pie. Without a doubt, the best desert in Lexington.

    The service needed work, although our server was very pleasant. The food was good, but a little over-spiced. There are other restaurants with slightly lower prices with better food and better service. We went on Father's Day, which was a Sunday evening, so maybe the best staff weren't scheduled, possibly. We enjoyed ourselves, but won't hurry back.

    Party of 5 at 5pm. Food and service were outstanding! One of the best mojitos I’ve ever had. We had salads & 4 small plates to share. All was delicious and beautifully presented. The flight of cake was perfect shared between 2-3 people. Only thing not perfect for our group was the background music which was too loud… made it difficult for conversation without shouting. I’m ready to go to Epping’s on Eastside anytime!

    Great spot for dinner with my cousin. Front desk staff was professional but not overly warm and had us wait for our official reservation time ever when there were tables available . Great food and service once we were seated. Be sure to ask for the bar menu for additional and cheaper options! Loved the salmon salad and gnocchi as an appetizer.

    A beautiful space for dinner and we planned to come back. However, a few things definitely needed improvement, especially since they were not even busy. Our small plates were excellent with the exception of the overpriced beef tallow fries which were barely warm and limp. Additionally, our waitress started removing plates before we were even done eating. She needs to improve her timing, otherwise service was good and we enjoyed our meal.

    Enjoyed the ambiance. Tough Saturday with graduations; crowded and a high noise level in the dining room along the side street. Moved to opposite room along the parking lot side where there are smaller tables and quieter. Great food, slow service due to large tables. No matter, will go back.

    This was our first visit to Eppings on Eastside, but it certainly won't be our last! We were seated quickly and our server was attentive from the start. The food was excellent. I had the New York Strip Tataki and my husband had the smoked chicken spring rolls. Both dishes were perfectly seasoned and attractively plated. Our only regret is that we were too full to try dessert! The service, ambience, and atmosphere were all very good. The prices were reasonable, and all-in-all, the meal was of high quality. We will definitely be making Eppings on Eastside a favorite restaurant.

    It's been awhile. This restaurant tends to err on the side of foodie-isms, but the results are very tasty. My wife had a salmon salad, and I had the sashimi (excellent), the crab bisque (probably the best I've had ever), and the potato fingerlings (good). We both had blood orange cosmos, and I grilled the bartender on that, since they were not as sweet as the St. Germaine would have implied. (We got a free shot of it for comparison.) The service was simply wonderful. The manager even swallowed a 2.5 year old gift card. The only ding I can give them is on "value," since the small plates and drinks can add up pretty quickly. But you get what you pay for!
