“Rarely Disappointed”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Because there are so few options in Downtown Exeter, we often go to Epoch because of its availability and accessibility. The bonus is....it's always very good! The service is excellent (except at the bar if having dinner) and the quality of the food is outstanding. Interesting menu with local flavor, nice comfortable and quiet atmosphere. Clearly this is Exeter's Finest!

“Always Delish!!!!”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

I've had the pleasure of eating at Epoch several times over the past year......and it never disappoints! Last night I had dinner with my sweetie, which is where we actually met! He had the pork tenderloin, perfectly cooked, which had been wrapped in the thinnest layer of speck, giving it a slight crunchy smoky texture...served with braised red cabbage and sweet potatoes......PERFECT for a cold winter night in New Hampshire!

I had the sea scallops, with a warm white bean cassoulet......scallops were perfectly cooked.....

All in all, it was a lovely meal! the service was spot on, attentive but not obtrusive....

Ask for a martini made with Citron and a splash of Lillet....my favorite drink of all time. We brought a dessert sampling home.....sigh......!

Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

Great new chef and new winter menu! One if my favorites, surprisingly, is the chilli....savory and a bit sweet....with butternut squash and pork rashers....YUM!!! Epoch was part of the Exeter beer and chilli festival last year...they got my vote for the best!!!

“We ate every bite”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

We loved the entire experience, the free-range chicken was the most flavorful I've ever had. The flourless chocolate cake was so delicious no one shared...
