Epoch is a very intimate, cozy, lively bistro with brick, red tones, and dark wood accents. The food is both classic and regional fare, and the service is friendly and efficient. A quaint and chatty bar area is attached at the front of the restaurant. The chef provides imaginative starters, appetizers and entrees that are nicely plated. A well rounded... More

We dine out a lot at all kinds of places. We tried Epoch recently and thought it was pretty decent. Our vodka martini's were a little high at $11 but I guess that comes with the territory. My wife had a the salad special at $9. It was ok. I had the salmon special at $25. It was fine. Service... More

Like the dining atmosphere, there is a Bar & Lounge and dining room to choose from. Good quality food and eats, cool selection. Somewhat pricey but cant beat the quality. Some what under staffed.

Disappointed by the pricing and atmosphere. The decor is dated and the food ordinary with gourmet pricing. Do not recommend.

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.

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
