Epic's reputation built expectations which weren't met. Upstairs bar has a great vibe, good cocktail menu and well-made drinks. Our dinner table in the "outer" room abutted the vinyl and canvas wall separating it from their patio seating; it presented a clear view of the Embarcadero walkway and the Bay Bridge LED light show. Our waiter was very business-like. Jumbo shrimp cocktail offered a good amount of tough shrimp. Bread and butter removed before our entrees arrived - that's rather stingy! We both had Filet mignons: misshapen baseballs, cooked to our request and the side sauce/juice (your choice of 4) added the only flavor. I might give it another chance but am not inclined to make it a top choice.

Great Bloody Marys and a beautiful view. It's a great place for a date and/or a Sunday brunch! The staff are friendly and the location can't be beat. I sampled a number of their delicious bites and each one was superb. Their chocolate mousse cake pairs exceptionally well with the coffee.Recommended for:Foodies

Epic is a great family place. It is situated right on the water overlooking the Bay Bridge and the beautiful Bay Lights project. Definitely call ahead if you want to guarantee a window seat!
The menu is varied and has a lot of wonderful choices - the meat is the way to go, but the veggie dishes and sides are also great. They have a fantastic Happy Hour, and a patio for when it's nice out.

Very nice place to have lunch - except if you are a veggan or a vegetarian , as their card is meat based. I took the naked Epic burger, a humming Ale and a Crême brulée. The crême was almost that and it was good. The beer was nice and the burger was just huge , as was the onion that came with it. We ended up sitting on the first floor and the view on the bay was relaxinf.

If you like Bay Area ambiance, this is "thee" place. The wife and I had a gourmet meal next to the patio fireplace while gazing at the East Bay's night lights. This place is right next to the Bay bridge and right on S.F.'s Embarcadero. Come prepared to spend a little doe-rae-mee.

When you head out for steak, you basically want three core things: great beef, great service, and great cheese puffs! Epic has it all.
They also have a grapefruit-Campari upside down cake with thyme whipped cream that will cap off your meal and make you glad the foodie revolution came around to invent such things as grapefruit-Campari upside down cake with thyme whipped cream in the first place.

Amazing views of the Bay and great location on the Embarcadero next to Ferry Building etc... I found the service to be exceptional and the food was really very good indeed. It is a steak house for dinner but we went for Saturday Brunch: The Crab Cake Benedict is on the lighter side and a winner as are the scrambled eggs and salmon (a bit more generous than the Benedict). Heard they have great happy hour in the upstairs bar too.

Although the inside of this restaurant is beautiful, if the weather is nice, I highly recommend sitting outside with a gorgeous view overlooking the Bay Bridge. We went just to have drinks but we ended up having such a great time that we stayed and had dinner as well. I'm so glad we did. I had the NY Strip with Black Pepper & Coffee Beans and it was amazing! (I'm a big fan of steaks with lots of flavor so if you prefer a simple steak, there are other options on the menu.) Great food - Great View - Great Service!!
