Epoch is really trying hard to be fine dining, but they somehow miss the mark every time. The menu appears to be high end but the ingredients or something just bring it down. Especially breakfast/brunch. I wouldn't order anything at this time. But dinner they do do some good things, especially risotto. But for what they're trying to achieve, they're... More

This restaurant is in the lovely old Exeter Inn. The service was great and the food was wonderful. We were a party of 8 and accommodated comfortably in a private room. We all enjoyed very good food and well made drinks. My husband is very fussy about his martini, loved it and got another the following evening. We had breakfast... More

We stayed only one night at the Exeter Inn. Breakfast was excellent. We ordered the pancakes with a large cup of good, strong coffee. A perfect way to start a snowy New England Saturday morning.

Never had a bad meal. A bit expensive but there are inexpensive choices on the menu. Interesting drinks. Nice atmosphere.

First visit to Epoch-arrived at bar late Saturday afternoon, before restaurant opened. Small area, but great decor. Assured there were tables available to have dinner in Epoch upon opening. We did not have a reservation. We were pleased we could try it. Waited in lively lounge area, had a drink, then wait for hostess to seat us. Bartender seems quite... More

Used a $50 voucher I bought for $25 and I felt our dinner for a party of four fell short of expectations. They ran out of a bottle of wine we wanted. I find it very annoying to spend time selecting a wine only to find out that some on the list are actually not available. They did substitute a... More

We went to Epoch on Christmas night, and as expected, the place was quiet. The bartender was very friendly, and his drinks were prepared very well. He is knowledgeable and very proud of his work, and makes guests feel welcomed. We ordered from the bar menu, my partner a ceasar salad and myself a burger. Both were excellent, and the... More

We ate here twice during our stay. Once late night at the bar (blt, tacos,wings) and drinks and another time we treated my parents to dinner. Both times the food was excellent although a little pricey. Service was great at the bar and at our table and the food was top notch. We ordered the scallops, muscles, clam chowder, salad,... More

Attended a wedding at the Inn and the food was incredible. Can't wait to go back for dinner with the family. Truly outstanding.

We just love Epoch. The food and service is top notch. Brunch is unparalleled. The Mimosa's the best we have ever had. The bar area is so relaxing and the specialty drinks creative and so good. Sunday Brunch is incredible and the Creme Braille the best around.

Thank Creda C
