We went to Epic after shopping on Elmwood. We were greeted enthusiastically as soon as we came in. The restaurant is small and probably more of a lounge. We ordered burgers with their lattice fries and were not disappointed. The server was flexible in modifying...More

The starters are excellent and well thought out with interesting combinations of flavors. The mains courses are OK, but two starters are better than one main! Prices fair, service seems up and down on my visits. So, on balance overall somewhere between 3 and 4...More

***RACIAL PROFILING*** I was appalled to have borne witness to two different individuals, on separate occasions, be refused both entry and service due to their ethnicity. What struck me as a blatant means of profiling was that a gentleman was refused entry due to his...More

This time was quite awful, not the food, the service. The waitress was wonderful, all alone and working like crazy. We ordered an appetizer, instead of telling us it wasn't available, the chef replaced it with a Caesar salad and brought it with our meal....More

Used a groupon to try this restaurant. Menu small but reasonably priced. Had the lobster crab bisque....I've had better but the shortrib was divine. Tender, juicy, filling along with the polenta cake. I would return.

We visited Epic during their happy hour where they feature a special menu as an addition to the regular menu. We had the filet sliders which are four slider burgers with gouda cheese dipping sauce and home made chips. For 7 dollars it may be...More

Some friends suggested we go here one night and got reservations. Honestly I didn't know the place existed. Nice, quiet restaurant. Smaller menu, but the food was good. Wasn't up my alley, like I said I didn't pick, but there was enough for me to...More
