We've taken advantage of several 1/2-off deals lately and the price is right with the discount. Without it the price would have been hard to swallow. The burger is tremendous ($14). The lunch menu is limited (maybe nine things plus appetizers & salads) and the main selections are all similar. The beers on tap were pretty weird but my second... More

Lots of choices on the menu, great service, excellent brunch on a cold December Sunday. I'd gladly go again. I'm only giving four stars because brunch is not the best measure of a restaurant's capacities, but as far as my omelette went, it was pretty near perfectly done.

Loved the food, service and liquor selection. The breakfast the next day was awesome. The variety of dishes was quite a surprise for a small restaurant. I view the restaurant as an adult venue. Although I am sure the staff would accommodate children as well. They had a good selection of Single Malt Scotch Whiskey as well.

I have dined her over twenty times since it was redone years ago. When they first opened Epoch, it was amazing food with lively, fun staff. Since then it has steadily declined in it's consistency. Sometimes the food is great; while other times it's not. The drink menu is excellent but the pub menu is really lacking. I would feel... More

Enjoyed New Year's Eve dinner here -- found the service to be very accommodating and warm and the menu to be just innovative enough to maintain the integrity of the dish but still having a little flair to make it unique - the noise coming from the nearby party rooms and spillover into the bar did negatively impact the ambiance...

Dear D L, Glad you could ring in the new year with us at Epoch! We offered a special menu that evening in addition to our regular menu to give our guests the option to spice up their night. I apologize for the noise spill over from the function next door. We had a very large and special New Year's... More

Our daughters had suggested Epoch as a place to celebrate mom's birthday last year. Well, we shouldn't have waited to experience the incredible sophisticated food and wine choices that Epoch offers. Derek our server was quick to respond knowledgeably to inspiration (appetizers) questions, wine inquiries and entree presentation. MacMannus or Erath, Pinot? Erath, he says and he was spot on....

My sister in law and I had an amazing dinner on a Sunday night durning restaurant week! Our service was excellent and the food was delicious!! The flat iron steak dish was amazing. Our server chose a great complimentary Cabernet to have with it. We will all be going back for many more visits!

Epoch has aspirations. It's location and menu supports this. Although the service is good, it isn't formal enough for the level of restaurant the "brand" is trying to strive for. Much more training is needed to have the service staff raise their level to something above going to the pub around the corner and talking about personal things, with either... More

Went for a work lunch yesterday and ordered off of the seasonal menu. Spinach salad, butternut squash and the ice cream.. All were delicious. Quaint dining area for lunch or a romantic dinner. Highly recommend!

Joelle B, The butternut squash ravioli is one of my favorites too! A definite winner since introducing the seasonal menu change. As always, our chef sources local, fresh food to make it a hit (even the ice cream)! Good to hear from you and looking forward to seeing you again.
