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....More

A group of 15 had breakfast yesterday and the service given by Bonnie was excellent. She is a pro! Another group of 5 had left NIH last Wednesday. The service was fine.
I'd like to see a dinner menu
