I guess business is a little slower at the end of September so I found the staff to be friendly and ready to please. I had the Shepherd's Pie special with a Ceasar Salad and that was delicious. My wife had an Egg Plant sandwich and salad and she thought it was excellent. Prices are fair considering this is a... More

I had minestrone soup it was tepid and very bland. Had a half seafood sandwich which was good. Staff seemed very curt Service is cafeteria style which could be great but staff actually hand you bowl of soup with no regard to it spilling on your hand, oh well it wasn't hot enough to burn. They were not busy so... More

Once again we had a yummy meal - lunch this time - at one of our favorite restaurants. Only negative was that the servers seemed disinterested in, well, waiting on us. Granted, they may have even coming off a busy weekend but still... No pep or enthusiasm was displayed at the beginning of the lunch crowd. We both got sandwiches... More

Thank you for comments on your lunch. Yes, it has been a long busy summer, but I agree, a smile would be nice. We employ a large number of students, and some of them are having their first experience in the hospitality business and are learning what busy customer service is all about. I will pass on your comments, and... More

We enjoyed Sunday evening dinner in September. Sat on great patio. Service impeccable. It's hard to find a place that's good to great without having to sacrifice on choice, access, or service. Epicurean meets all our expectations.

An evening on the back patio is wonderful. It is very romantic, with lighting done expertly to create this atmosphere. I thought that there might be mosquitos - but we were pleased that there were no bugs whatsoever! Almost like places in Europe! The food was excellent. I would avoid the coconut pie. This is one of my favourite desserts... More

We stopped in here for lunch. It's cafeteria style, but don't let that put you off. The food was good and the atmosphere was nice. The only downside I have to offer is that the pea soup that I ordered tasted vinegar-y. I didn't eat it. My sandwich was very good and my wife enjoyed her soup and salad.

Epicurian is always very good for what it is-a cafeteria with special preparations on demand. They always have a wide selection of options. They havekiller soups especially thir gazpacho

We stopped in for dinner and what a disappointment. First off, a few of the items on the wine list was no longer being offered. As well, one of the vegetarian specials for the day was no longer offered. The moussaka I ordered was made with layers of potatoes instead of eggplant and the entire top of the moussaka was... More
