a reliable place for a quiet dinner. Half-plates available for those wanting a light dinner. Service is usually attentive but often a wait for entrees. Reservations are accepted.

What to say here, this is a hotel restaurant with some clear talent in the kitchen, but needs a bit more attention to detail and this perhaps could then be an excellent restaurant. My wife and I tried Epoch for the first time during restaurant week. We've always wanted to go, and the chef put a nice menu together. The... More

This is the second time that we have eaten at Epoch. Yesterday, we had the restaurant week menu. The meal and service were excellent. I highly recommend Epoch.

This place hits on all cylinders. Upscale but not pretentious, romantic but laid back, classy, innovative and delicious. My server Tiffany was the perfect balance of talented, professional, and fun. They have a nice wine list, offering "sips" of wine (about 4 ounces), and they have a nice beer menu too! The culinary staff had their stuff together and each... More

A group of 15 enjoyed a delicious, pleasant breakfast at 9:00. The atmosphere was lovely. The menu was varied and reasonably priced. The servers were hospitable and accommodating. We are returning this month to enjoy it again.

Stopped in Exeter on the way to a few days away in Maine. Went to the Epoch Restaurant and after looking over the menu we thought the best way to go would be a little of this and a little of that, so we put together an assortment of small plates and appetizers consisting of wild boar sausages, a small...

We had dinner and it was really really slow for 9. We all had relative easy simple dishes. My wife and I had salads and two other guests had soup and sandwich but it took nearly 2 hours. Our last day there we wanted to all have breakfast and decided to eat here the service and food were by far... More
