Attention to detail runs throughout Sepia -- both in the room and on the plate -- from the custom Art Nouveau tile floor to the hand-crafted millwork and the vintage stemware. The easy elegance of the room serves as the perfect backdrop for the inventive American cuisine. Chef Andrew Zimmerman's product-driven, seasonal menu showcases the purity and quality of the ingredients, letting both the ingredients and his passion for what he does shine through. Sepia celebrates tradition – with a modern twist.

Delicious dinner! Great service! The falafel dish was a great vegetarian option. I also got roasted radish side dish which was absolutely delicious. The main dishes are not very large, so you will definitely want to have an appetizer or side of veggies as well.

We ordered the five course dinner at Sepia for $95 per person. A little pricey but it was worth it. All the dishes were excellent. They also made some changes for us because of dietary restrictions. I highly recommend it.

We greatly enjoyed the pris fix menu for $24. Three choices for main, two choices each for starter and dessert. Amazing service and great by-the-glass wine selections. Even the dinner roll was delicious. Recommended!

The restaurant is very focused on their wine collection so probably no. Best to call them and ask.
