I visited Sepia twice and both times have been astonished by the quality of the food and the quality of the service. Both times the friends I was with commented on how great the food was and how wonderful the ambience of the restaurant was. I highly recommend this place.

This a "must" destination for anyone that appreciates great food, service and decor. Unbelievable that it's only been open for a few days! Run, don't walk to Sepia!

We tried Sepia, on a whim, on our way to Avec. From the moment we entered it was a wonderful experience. Tall paneled doors at the entrance, looking like they came from some long gone institution, are surrounded by walnut paneling and lead you inside. The dining room is not like the barren Zen experiences you might expect from hip new restaurants in the city. The mood set is one of comfort and simple edgy elegance. The latter of these two descriptions coming from the four large translucent drum encased crystal chandeliers that hang in the middle of the dining room, each above its own table. We were seated at one of two large communal tables, sitting at bar height, that had a great view of the room and a unique dramatically lit wine storage system climbing the walls to our backs. The room itself is enough entertainment value to be given by the price of a meal. But then the menu arrives and there is more. We didn't even get to the entrees and grill items before being overwhelmed by the unique choices offered as starters, flat breads and sides. We decided to order small plates and come back for entrees another time. We started with the bacon, peaches and blue cheese flat bread, chilled cucumber/avocado soup with smoked trout (kindly split for us with no need to ask) and roasted rabbit with ricotta dumplings. The portions were generous as appetizers and fully enough to share between 2 people. We then ordered the pork rillette with fig preserve and pistachio bacon brittle and the sweet corn with peppers. The pork rillette was decadent with its fatty richness and the corn could have been served as a dessert for its sweetness. The rillette was served with a rustic herbed bread which I thought a bit complex for everything else on the plate. This was only a small item, in the spirit to achieve perfection as no one ever can, for which I saw room for improvement. The pistachio bacon brittle, however, was a perfect compliment to the pork.

Everything has been done well by the staff and the chef! I would say to get a reservation early, as it is getting difficult to get a table. The baby octopus is fab, and definitely go for the flatbread.
