Outstanding from the time the reservation was made until we walked out the door. This was a great evening of fine dinning. Food was excellent and service was premier. Thank you Chris for providing a great experience for our family. See you next year.

This is fine dining at its best, without the stuffiness of places with waiters in starched collars and an expectation to dress up. The experience at Epi's is more like going to your favorite aunt's home and having her dote on you. Reservations are always recommended and I called and left a message on their voice mail Saturday morning for... More

If you want the best customer service and to be treated like family this is the place. Food is time tested old family recipes. Can't beat the big experience in this small restaurant.

After reading several reviews that you have to book early for a table my husband and I decided to give it a try at 5 pm without reservations. Chris - Epi's granddaughter welcomed us and sat us at a table that had reservations at 6:30. Dinner was wonderful -staff were fabulous and friendly. Would recommend and make reservations!

Who would have thought this place has the best atmosphere, service and flavor in the Valley. Some friends invited us for a night out. I have heard of Epi's 100s of time and never went. Glad we had the opportunity to finally visit. Won't be the last time that's for sure.

When I moved to the area, Epi's was the one restaurant that came up multiple times when I asked for recommendations. The first time I went was when family came to visit - and it exceeded my expectations. Everyone who works there is fantastic - I can say without a doubt that they have the best service in any restaurant... More

Delicious food that is prepared the way Grandma would have. Sometimes there is a wait but it is well worth it. Absolutely good food!

EPA's serves fantastic AND authentic food from a culture that's not widely represented in the US....so put it on your must-go list! Ingredients are top quality and fresh, preparation if meticulous, and every dish, from salad, soup, to other courses, is flavorful. We've had everything from baby squid in ink and tongue, to more "normal" fare like pork chops and... More

Food is served here with class. The portions are perfect, the service is great and the menu items make it difficult to decide

We called for reservations only to be told that there was going to be a Christmas party and they were not sure how man people would be there, we received a call a couple of days later asking if we were still interested in a reservation, so happy we didnt make reservations elsewhere. This nights special was the monkfish with... More
