Everything about this lunch was superb, from the way they treated my 85 year old mother (with reduced mobility) to the knowledge and helpfulness of the wait staff. Every bite was delicious. Menu is well thought out and designed with care. Fabulous wine list. The space is elegant but calm and casual, not stuffy.
Everything was perfect except the chairs. Uncomfortable chairs! So ask for a cushion to support your lower back!

Food was good. Server was helpful. But for a place that advertises mixology, they really had an issue making and delivering the drinks in a timely manner. Our first drink order came after our main course arrived (30min). It was a glass of wine and an Old Fashioned. They said the bar tenders were slammed, but the place was only half full? They removed the drinks from our bill without us asking which was very nice. The old fashioned was made far too sweet. Next drink order was a dirty martini. It came quicker this time but he forgot to put the olive juice in so had to be sent back. 25 mins later the correct drink came. Same excuse that the bartender was so busy, but by this time there was even less people in the place. I’m pretty sure the issue was the bartender and not the restaurant. But for a place that advertises their mixology and charging top dollar per ounce, ($24+ martinis), they really need to make sure their bartenders are on point with delivery and execution of the drinks.

This place has the most expensively bland food I have ever had in my life. I ordered the lamb burger which was cooked well but with no seasoning in the meat, it's like they expect the toppings to make the meat taste good. My partner ordered the salmon and for $45, the one I cook taste better and I'm not a chef. Everything was just "meh", no outstanding flavours what so ever. We will not be returning and I suggest you pick somewhere else. But the decor the is pretty.

Epoch would get 5 stars from me but there were a couple of minor issues. The decor and atmosphere were immaculate. However the service was confusing. There appeared to be a new server in training, which is completely fine and understandable. However, I felt as if the server was not being set up for success by his team. On multiple occasions the server brought over food that was not meant for our table. When I asked questions about items on the menu they were unable to answer them. We are all aware that the restaurant industry is short staffed currently so that’s why I still rate this restaurant very high. But nonetheless, it was surprising that the service and product knowledge was not in line with their prices. Presentation and taste were excellent. Their drinks were also superb.

Had a lovely dinner with a friend. The lounge chairs are very very deep and require a pillow to fill the back for comfortable table sitting. The service was a bit lacking. Filled our own wine glasses a few times.

Food and service were fantastic. Live jazz band was great as well but you could barely here them due to the noise in the restaurant. Also the tables were a little to close to each other for comfort, enough for you to hear everyone else’s conversations. Overall it was the noise level that made it quite unpleasant for me.

The service and food were fantastic. The only issue we had was that we waiting over an hour for our table to be ready, in the meantime we were seated outside and had drinks. But, the managers were kind enough to compensate us for the inconvenience. I do recommend this place and would go back again.
