From the beginning to the end this was a horrendous experince. We were told that our reservation for 8 could not be changed to 9 and when we arrived the dining room was less than half full with the ability to add a chair at the end of the table less than a problem! With only four tables that the... More

Our second visit to Epoch was wonderful. We sat outside on the porch which was perfect on a warm summer evening. The service throughout the meal from our waitress and the manager was outstanding, both friendly and attentive. We started with oysters which were fresh and beautifully presented, the finely shaved horseradish was a unique touch. For starters we had... More

I had a wonderful experience at Epoch. The interior is gorgeous, and very appealing. Our server was very attentive and knowledgable. The service was quick without feeling rushed, and the food was amazing! I will definitely be returning to Epoch frequently both for dinner and Sunday Brunch.

This morning my family and I had brunch at Epoch restaurant. The service was great and our breakfast quesadillas were delicious! After we finished eating, I was able to play in the yard outside by the gazebo with my 9 month old son, he just loved it. We will be back again very soon!

Took the family out for Father's Day breakfast at Epoch on a gorgeous sunny day. We arrived before the official brunch but the dining room was already quite full. This dining room is about half windows that provide a great view out into an intimate patio and courtyard area filled with flowers and occasional small birds flitting about the inside... More

we went to epoch on a Friday night at the suggestion of friends. we had been here several years ago, and did not care for the atmosphere. We had made a reservation and were offered an option of seating outside, which we could not due to rain. We were sat promptly, then things went south. We ordered a cocktail, and... More

The Epoch restaurant at Exeter Inn is an unexpected find in this small New Hampshire town. The Chefs are top-quality and often go on to larger, more urban venues. The bar and wait staff can be transient so training is frequently incomplete. The food is always outstanding, with flavor combinations that often make me say "Why didn't I think of... More

We recently moved into the area and were looking forward to dining at Epoch. The atmosphere and setting were good but from there on everything was average to poor. The service was lacking, our waitress seemed to know little about the menu and questions we asked went unanswered. Wine service was terrible. The one good part of the meal was... More

Had a very nice dinner experience here. I started with the beet and watercress salad. All the ingredients are locally sourced and excellent in quality. For the main, I had the bouillabaisse which was teeming with scallops, mussels and shrimp in a tasty saffron cream broth. The dessert was a berry tart with ice cream. Yum! There is a small... More
