    Ambiance is underwhelming. Would be nice if the chef would at least once show himself. For a Michelin star rated restaurant I would expect a personal touch like I am accustomed to in Europe quality of the dishes and as excellent, wine pairing was good.

    Loved the experience and Alex was an excellent server. The food was amazing and complex flavors. The wine pairing was very well done. 4 courses was a little odd and the truffle fried chicken was tasty but not exactly what I think of when I hear fried chicken. Pricy but quality of ingredients and the experience of chef shows in the food and presentation.

    We started with incredible drinks at the bar with Keith, who really knows how to make terrific cocktails - I had an old fashion with a saffron infused ice cube - untouchable. We had the four course dinner with the wine pairing, and every single bite was welcome to the palate, with wonderful flavors and textures. The Golden Kaluga Caviar is a must, the roasted foie gras custard was superb, the cavatelli and fried chicken are outstanding and the dry aged beef striploin with the beggars purse won the night. Dessert of the sourdough apple kuchen complimented a complete evening. The staff - from the moment you walk in the door to our unbelievable server Kim - made for a memorable evening and we can't wait to come back!

    I would absolutely recommend Sepia to couples looking to celebrate a special occasion or memorable date. Our server was an absolute delight. The atmosphere is trendy and romantic, without feeling overly formal. The cuisine delivers above the price point. The whole experience was very comfortable without losing any feeling of being special. The entire staff made us feel very welcome. P.S. order the foie gras. Seriously. Do it. foie gras

    The food was immaculate. Each course was amazing, filled with flavors! It was my first time going to a 1 star michelin restaurant and it did not disappoint. The waiter we had was full of energy, polite and kind. She was able to provide a break down of what kind of dish each course was and the waiters who delivered our food described what the food was and how we should best consume it.

    We have been dining at Sepia since Chef Zimmerman has been there. We know that there is now a Chef de Cuisine. Up to now, we have loved the food. The food we had last night off the new fall menu was not up to the normal standards. Even the bread at the beginning was standard, not special. The courses my wife had, had a sweetness to it that didn't bring out the flavors of the food. The truffle fried chicken tasted like fried chicken. I would not have known truffles were involved. We were very disappointed. We certainly hope the next menu and preparation of the food is back up to the high standards that Chef Zimmerman had set.

    Amazing experience at my first Michelin star restaurant. The waiter was very accommodating and answered any questions I had. My water glass was never empty, different waiters would fill it up when it was low. The food was absolutely delicious and as a picky eater, I cleaned the plate for each meal. The bread appetizer was delicious and I wish there was a second piece of bread with jam, butter and I believe prosciutto. The plating for the duck could be elevated, however the taste and texture was delicious for my first time eating duck. I took the waiters recommendation for the cook of the duck and the dessert and he did great in gauging what I would enjoy. Would definitely go again
