This is the second time that we have eaten at Epoch. Yesterday, we had the restaurant week menu. The meal and service were excellent. I highly recommend Epoch.

This place hits on all cylinders. Upscale but not pretentious, romantic but laid back, classy, innovative and delicious. My server Tiffany was the perfect balance of talented, professional, and fun. They have a nice wine list, offering "sips" of wine (about 4 ounces), and they have a nice beer menu too! The culinary staff had their stuff together and each... More

A group of 15 enjoyed a delicious, pleasant breakfast at 9:00. The atmosphere was lovely. The menu was varied and reasonably priced. The servers were hospitable and accommodating. We are returning this month to enjoy it again.

Stopped in Exeter on the way to a few days away in Maine. Went to the Epoch Restaurant and after looking over the menu we thought the best way to go would be a little of this and a little of that, so we put together an assortment of small plates and appetizers consisting of wild boar sausages, a small...

We have had breakfast and dinner at the Epoch several times. We love sitting at the bar. The bartender was great. The food at the bar and restaurant has always been good and consistent.

The restaurant has several comfortable options for seating. The acoustics are good, so conversation is easy. Service was efficient and professional. The menu includes many interesting small plates and several entrees are available as 1/2 portions, so we were able to sample multiple items. All of our food was well prepared and attractively plated. There is a good selection of... More

We had just arrived at the Exeter Inn and we couldn't have asked for a better meal. It's a fun atmosphere and the food was delightful. They had great options on the menu but it is casual enough that travelers just getting in can enjoy a meal.
