A great local spot with all your favorite classical basque dishes and more. The restaurant is a little small so make sure you make a reservation. Food and service is great and the atmosphere has a cozy homey vibe. The croquettes are a must!

Outstanding food, great service, reasonable prices. I enjoyed the Filet Medallions and was surprised they came with bread, soup and salad. Bring your appetite as it’s hard to leave hungry.

My friends…. This place – it deserves 500 stars. The food. The people. The atmosphere. After making a reservation, I called thinking I had to cancel realizing I would be an hour late (traffic ya know?). Erik went above and beyond to work with me, and personally checked in with me and my party – so personal and thoughtful. Christina was without a doubt the best waitress I’ve ever had – so extremely attentive and kind.

Really nice concept since the restaurant looks like a house outside. So, it feels like coming home to grandma’s for Thanksgiving. But once inside, the atmosphere changes. It is way too noisy, like you’re in an arena and in the middle of an MMA fight! Our server can’t even hear us she has to lean over to us to take our order. The service staff are really awesome. The appetizers are great. The entrée comes with a soup, which is really good. After that, it went downhill to the bottom pit. We waited way too long for the food while other guests chatted like they had to outdo one another. It was torture! Then our entrée finally arrived. The halibut dish is fishy and overcooked. The ink(squid) dish is too sweet and blah. The tongue dish is sliced too thin, and bland tomato sauce poured onto it. We barely ate it. Turned down the dessert because we felt aggravated already by the loud customers. The prices of their entrées are overpriced for the taste of their dishes. If not for the awesome staff and appetizers, I’ll rate this a 1 star. Big time disappointed.

The instant we crossed the threshhold of Epi’s, my husband and I were greeted by the owner. The restaurant, which was once a home, provided a cozy, relaxed, family-feel kind of atmosphere. The menu had many delicious items to choose from.

Such a lovely warm place to eat where they treat you like family. The food is good. Always get the croquettes for an appetizer.

I love coming to Epis and the experience we get. The staff are so great, welcoming and helpful. My favorite is the Halibut with the cream sauce on top! You can bet that I will always get the calamari, I’ve been to some Michelin restaurants and their calamari is not even close to what I get here at Epis. Be sure to leave room for some Ice cream cake I love have they rotate and match the season to the time of year you are visiting.

We had the most amazing waiter, and all the staff was super friendly. It was the perfect spot to talk and have dinner with friends. The food was very good, with the exception of the lamb (not as tender as I hoped and seemed cooked the day before). But overall, it was an amazing experience, and I will be back.

I had long wanted to go to Epi’s based on its reputation and so I chose it to celebrate my birthday. Restaurant was full for early seating around 5 pm (reservations are clearly a must) and we were seated upon arrival. Ambience was homey and friendly.
