Epicurean is one of our favourite restaurants because it has a lovely and spacious patio at the back. We visited the restaurant this evening (two couples and a three year old) and were very pleased. Our server was superb. She helped us select just the right dish for each of us. My 10 oz. steak with a nice peppercorn sauce was cooked perfectly. The house balsamic salad was dressed well and was super tasty. Although my husband's mussels were great, he did encounter a bit of grit. But he said the capresi salad was fine. The pasta carbonara was deemed excellent. The braised lamb shank was tender and flavourful and the potatoes served with it (mashed) were 'to die for.' We were dissapointed to learn there were only two dessert choices left at 8:45, but all in it was a very good experience. All that was missing was little twinkle lights strung through the lovely bower of mature tree branches floating over the tables.

This is a great place to sit outside and relax... the service was fantastic and they allowed us to just sit and have a snack or appetizer. In the back of the place they have a great place under the shade trees to enjoy a beverage and enjoy some snacks. There was no pressure to order whatever you wanted. The girls serving us were from our area town of Otterville and Delhi... we will stop there again.

We went to this restaurant for dinner and show as part of the Music Niagara festival. The staff were very disorganized and not prepared to host an event of this nature. While the meal was acceptable, service was very slow and there were numerous mixups with the orders. Dinner was supposed to start at 8 pm and be finished before the group started to play at 9:30 pm. Many were just receiving their entrees when the music started, creating a distraction for those who wanted to enjoy the music. To compound the problem, the group was scheduled to play until 11:30 pm, but were told to stop playing at 11:00 pm, as management was worried about receiving noise complaints from the neighbours (although none had been received).
When we received our bill, we noticed that we had been charged $55.00 for a bottle of wine that retails for $15.95. That's over a 200% mark up!
We would normally give new management some leeway, but they have been open for several weeks, and should have had the opportunity to improve operations by now. We won't be back.

My husband and I had spent the afternoon on a winery cycling tour and when we arrived back in town we were looking for a quiet patio for a relaxing dinner. Epicurean Fine Foods was the perfect place. Newly renovated after 22 years it maintained its excellent menu and service but has a new contemporary feel to the indoor restaurant. The patio was off of the main street and was shady and peaceful. Our server appeared whenever we needed her attention but at the same time was friendly and had many good suggestions about the menu. I had the Greek pasta entree and my husband had the Prime Rib burger. Both were excellent.
I would recommend this place in a heartbeat and look forward to eating here the next time we're in NOTL

I ordered the Atlantic Salmon and a coffee and sat on the front patio. The salmon was 8 oz with lemon dill sauce and rice Pilaff. It came with quite a few hard squared carrots, yellow pepper and soft zucchini. The plate it was served on was one of those where you need to place your cutlery carefully or they will slide into the centre. I had 3 coffees. Each of them were lukewarm at best. My bill with tax came to $34.75.
