Description: Using the best local and seasonal ingredients from the garden, the land, and the sea, Epulo's menu lets the quality of the food shine. Using the time-honored techniques and passion of the Mediterranean region, Epulo's menu is a celebration of Europe's influence on Northwest food. We celebrate, in our charming town of Edmonds, the same relationship between food and community that is woven into the fabric of Europe's coastal villages. This is a place where food is a serious pursuit and community the most delicious ingredient.

We came in around 5:30pm on Saturday night to enjoy Happy Hour. It was already very crowded, but the selections were mostly good. We both ordered the salad which was romaine lettuce with a nice dressing, some prosciutto bits I believe. I got the papardelle with short ribs. Nice dish, quite rich. My husband ordered the rigatoni dish. We liked them. We added on a dessert, and it seemed to be a mistake. The place was quite crowded. We waited almost 20 minutes for it. We were told it was "coming up" anytime. However, it was almost cold when served. So it just sat on a counter somewhere for quite some time. It tasted ok, but disappointing after such a wait.

This place is great for HH. I've been here a few times, once for dinner...I didn't enjoy the dinner as much as HH. The short ribs were GREAT! They don't have a great selection, but a full bar with good draft beers.

Love the atmosphere and food. We missed the legendary happy hour but made do with champagne. My chicory salad with kumquat was light and refreshing. Friends had the truffle oil popcorn ( usually only avail during happy hour). Another had delectable short ribs. Our grapefruit martinis were light and refreshing. Love the local bistro vibe.

A friend and I had dinner at Epulo Bistro for a celebration. My four-cheese pasta with mushrooms was wonderfully rich and almost as good as leftovers the next night. My friend enjoyed her pizza as well. Service was friendly and efficient. The only negative was the very high noise level. When the place is full, it is difficult to have a conversation.

The place was packed and people continuously arriving, not that big and tables where stacked in tight. The food we had was OK, but have had better. We came by accident (looking for a place to eat), parking is bad. We stopped on a Wednesday, so we where surprised at how crowded it was.
