    As expected, food and service were terrific. We ate outside which was fine but hardly nearly able to match the rest of the meal. Overall, we will return. Sepia continues to be in a small group of the top restaurants in the city

    Food was sensational. The service was even better. Outstanding wine list selections, however the pricing on the wine list was extremely high. Would have ordered more bottles if the wines weren't so ridiculously overpriced.

    Amazing. The 4 course menu had great choices and the choices I made didn't disappoint. Outstanding were the scallop... Literally melt in your mouth and all the flavours came through one after the other and lasted. The second call out is the donut with the beef striploin... Really didn't know what to expect. It brought a huge smile to my face. The food was an experience that delivered. I couldn't stop smiling. It was fantastic. The wine I picked a Malbec was delicious. I dined alone and felt very welcome. The waiter was attentive, and service was prompt, but not rushed. It was a better experience then I imagined, and I've dined at a lot of places. I loved the decor too. Very relaxing.

    Hostesses at the desk were professional, friendly and sweet (notwithstanding that they were unable to accommodate our request to sit inside. I did notice that the restaurant was indeed quite busy.) We sat outside in perfect weather. The food was very good, though not up to the standard we were accustomed to at this wonderful restaurant. The problem may have been that our server tainted the meal-he certainly tainted the evening! He knew what he was doing, clearly an experienced server. However, he was snippy. Perhaps he had had a bad day-if so, he should know to hide any problems he may have from his customers. The other staff, food runners and, especially the bus boy were terrific.

    Truly the most exceptional staff I’ve ever had the pleasure to be served by. The way they danced with each other and were so in tune with diners needs was really a delight. The food and cocktails were exceptional - I highly recommend adding the caviar to your meal. Only thing that was not on-par was the ambiance. It felt stuffy and too bright in the space and the shaded chandeliers were not in good taste. Simplifying the space to add more modernity would go a long way to add to the impeccable cuisine.

    We loved our dinner at Sepia, it's a lovely place to celebrate a special occasion. The service and all of our dishes were outstanding, and the special touches, such as the complimentary bread and butter, amuse buche and second "mini" dessert really made for a wonderful experience.

The other gentlemen helping bring the food we’re knowledgeable on each dish & provided amazing service. The food was out of this world! We flew from New York & will definitely be back! I definitely recommend the miso scallops!
