Restaurant Epic - Permanently Closed Ratings and Reviews
My girlfriend and I enjoyed shared two courses (a salad and a main entree) and it was definitely worth the value of the meal. They could have put a little more seafood in their ciopinno, however the soup overall was delicious. On top of that, they were courteous enough to split the soup into two separate bowls for each of us to enjoy. Definitely recommend to couples enjoying a nice evening together and will most likely be returning for the right occasion again.
Tuesday turned out to be Mardi Gras, and Epic was heavily populated with people celebrating the event. Several customers wore masks, and there were several larger than usual parties. The bar was full! Lots of laughter. We started out with a special appetizer, skewed teriyaki chicken that was perfectly grilled. Our entree was miso salmon over linguini. The salmon was yummy and the pasta, as usual, prepared al dente.
Let me start out with dessert. We frequent Epic and as such they gave us the dessert they developed for their Valentine's Day dinner: a strawberry nutella crepe layer cake. Outstanding! Epic ought to add this on their regular menu. Back to the beginning of the evening. We started out with their Asian roast duck salad - perfectly prepared. Incidentally, all of the salads we had at Epic are worth a try. We've had most items on their menu, and I've decided that my favorite entree is their truffled garden pasta with chicken katsu. Any time we have had their pasta it's prepared al dente with a yummy sauce and crispy chicken katsu.
The restaurant was very busy! Food yummy as usual. We shared their tasting option the included their Asian roast duck salad followed by a tasting that included miso butterfish, fried pork chop and crab cake. The pork chop itself would generously serve two for an entree. The crab cake was fine, except the menu said we would get seafood ravioli instead of the crab cake. If it matters to you, I'd confirm that you actually do get either the seafood ravioli or the crab cake. Great service!
We started out with their Full Moon Ravioli which were filled with spinach, mushroom and ricotta, then covered with a macadamia nut pesto sauce. Outstanding! Although we try to not have two pasta dishes in one meal we decided to try a new dish - shrimp with lobster sauce served over angel hair pasta. So yummy! Service was wonderful. Attentive without being intrusive.
We decided to take advantage of their advertised "Tasting Menu" special for January. Great deal for $35...flavorful duck salad to start, followed by the entree featuring miso butterfish, seafood ravioli and fried porkchop, and finished with a refreshing coconut ice cream! What a great selection. Service was friendly and efficient.
Restaurant Epic is a special place because it works for both a special celebration or a casual evening. We saw date-night couples and business groups - all having a fun evening. Don't forget to sample their ahi poke, escargot poppers or crab dip. The bar was especially active.
Service was awful. We had to constantly find and ask server for various things. Food was good but my scallops were undercooked so I had to send them back. They then came back over cooked and rubbery texture. Everything was good but the service was horrible.
We shared a roasted duck salad, two appetizers and a bottle of wine: apple, walnut and brie quesadilla and crab dip with (extra) crostinis. Their salads are perfect - just the right amount of dressing with properly crisped ingredients. Restaurant Epic's service is friendly and especially competent. A pleasant evening!
We started out with their ahi salad - several slices of ahi over a nice mixture of crisp lettuces. Their special that evening was a large pork chop with mushroom gravy, mashed potatoes and roasted brussel sprouts. We splurged on one of their popular desserts - apple pie en croute. It's worth the 15 minute wait!
We really needed the night before Thanksgiving out to relax. Restaurant Epic was busy with people who seemed to also wanted their yummy food and great service in advance of a very busy day. We started out with their arugula with strawberries salad. Just enough dressing, properly dried and crisp arugula and nicely chilled strawberries. Our main course was their Thai curry with chicken katsu. A very pleasant evening.
Restaurant Epic is conveniently located in downtown Chinatown, and around the corner to the Hawaii Theatre. Try their ahi poke and chicken/caesar salad for starters. Although we often opt for their lamb chops or fish, this time we selected their seafood pasta special. The linguini was cooked al dente and the mahi mahi perfectly sauteed. No room for dessert, however we liked what we saw at other tables - especially the apple pie en croute.
We had dinner at Epic prior to the show at Hawai'i Theater. Very convenient - parked at the outdoor lot next to Marks Garage - $20 bucks vs. $8 at Marks but we didn't know until we parked. Epic is a block away, as is the Theater. Checked in and were seated right away. Food and drink were great value - reasonable prices all around - salads, Epic Burger, Furikake Ahi Burgers, and Chicken Katsu Curry. Quality, taste, presentation of the food was wonderful. No room for dessert. Down side: the wait staff was very unfriendly - took our dinner orders almost as if they wanted to argue about things, inattentive - water glasses were empty quite a while before they got refilled, unhelpful -- we watched a woman pushing her wheelchair partner struggle to get up and out the door as the wait staff ignored them so we got up to hold the door for them. All in all, I think we'd go back for the convenience and quality of the food and hope the staff is in a better mood.
We had a wonderful evening at Restaurant Epic. We started out with their yummy crab dip for a special appetizer. Next time we plan on trying their ahi poke We thoroughly enjoyed their special pasta of the evening - blacked shrimp over linguini. Just perfectly done! The service met the right balance to take good care of us without being intrusive. A special night!
The food was decent but the service was horrible. When my friends and I went, I asked our waiter to torch my creme brûlée to burn off the Bacardi because it was too strong and the sugar wasn't crisp enough. Instead, she literally brought my creme brûlée back and tried to stick a lighter in it in front of us and tell us that she couldn't light it. Seriously? You're suppose to torch it or but it back in the oven.
