Farm To Fork Perfection

The seasonal menu and cocktail list make this a must for foodies. Small plates are perfect for sharing, and they have a private room if you have a large party.

The restaurant is located in the downtown area where parking is at a premium especially on the weekends. I feel the seating area is too small for comfortable seating. The menu was difficult to navigate in making the proper selections. However, the waitress was cheerful and helpful in the selection process. Lastly, the food was in small portions and very... More

We chose a Tuesday evening hoping the kitchen would be calm and not pressured as they might be on a weekend. The staff greeted us before we even entered, sat us at our requested table, and took our drink order immediately. Our waiter was informative and conscientious. We ordered the prawns and received not four prawns but four average sized... More

Been here several times. They have a very unique menu, and we sampled ten different items, but none were very good.

Had a wonderful meal with friends. The food was exceptional. The beet flan was unbelievable despite how it sounded.

EPIPHANY CAFE is my favorite stop in Tuscaloosa. The farm to table establishment is forward in its food selections and presentations. No visit is complete with out a Chef tres meal. This last time included:the brussel sprouts, delicately carmelized, the beets, with watermelon and feta cheese perfection, mushrooms tenderly braised. Dinner selections;the rabbit perfectly cooked. the redfish, delicious. The portabello... More

I love a good Farm to Table style restaurant and when you add interesting craft cocktails, local brews and great service you have a winner. We arrived in Tuscaloosa after a long drive, picked up hubby's packet for a bike event he'd be riding in the next day and set out to see the local. Having seen the online menu... More

Farm to table idea is good but the menu items were strange. Not a lot on the menu appealed to us. What the did was good (salmon in particular). But some of the combinations were just odd and we were not impressed with the other items we tried.

Epiphany was a spur of the moment choice when my friend and I wanted to try some where new. It's my favorite place now. The bread service was amazing right off the bat, and I was pleased to learn just how fresh everything here was. The wait staff know the menu inside and out, and were incredibly courteous and helpful.... More

I was in town on business by myself on a Saturday night and wanted the best meal I could find - my wife owns a restaurant and is executive chef there and so I am always enjoying great meals - and getting to be critical of what I eat! I checked out all the top Trip Advisor restaurants and asked... More
