With the help of our excellent server we were able to navigate a menu that tries to be unique at the expense of being informative. The food itself was excellent. However, the portions are ridiculously small matched with very high prices. It cost about $150 for three of us. This included two drinks, three appetizers, three main courses and two... More

I appreciate the finer things in life but only when they can substantiate their cost. This restaurant does not. The menu is the most confusing I've come across and the elaborate wording doesn't match the quality of food at all. The portions are tiny but the prices are not and that's taking into consideration the quality. The chef's attitude was... More

A wonderfully charming restaurant in Tuscaloosa's revived downtown area and they were one of the first restaurants to commit to this city's downtown re-birth years ago. They specialize in using locally grown produce, fish, and meat and is the only place I've ever been that actually made me try brussel sprouts and LIKE them. The restaurant proudly displays a listing... More

After a day of moving our daughter into college we were looking for a nice place for our large party of eight to have dinner. After reading reviews we chose "The Epiphany". Very nice decor, the bar looked like a great place to hang out. We were seated and the experience began. We did not realize this was more of... More

We wanted to have a very special evening with our daughter and boyfriend to celebrate graduation from UofA. We enjoys ped the many offerings of locally sourced products. My husband and I shared a nice steak offering for two, and our guests enjoyed each choosing something a little more adventuresome. A nice selection of wines were offered and we enjoyed... More

My boyfriend wanted to try a nice restaurant out in downtown Tuscaloosa and we had been told of Epiphany from a close friend. We walked in and were instantly in love with the decor and atmosphere of the Farm-to-Fork cuisine. We were welcomed and seated quickly and had quite a time choosing what to eat. We did opt for the...

If you are tried to 1/2 pound hamburgers, pizza, and greasy over cooked vegetables try Epiphany. The food is fresh, and there are many unique items on the menu and you can get them in small portions (share plates) at reasonable prices. We ate at Epiphany last night with another couple and had 10 small plates that we shared with... More

Wonderful preparation and presentation. If you are looking for fresh and local fare this is a great spot. The menu selections are tapas style so you can order a few small plates or a big plate.

Beautifully presented, great service, delicious food. Every bite was a joy. Had a reservation for the chef's table. Great experience. Chef and sous chef were very knowledgeable and friendly. Service was outstanding. Bar service was excellent. At the chef's table, the chef selects what will be served. It was several courses, and I ended up taking the lamb home --... More
