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

Menu just odd. Why all these weird combos? Pasta had 3 noodles in it. Rest sauce. Food was just really bad. Bread good but why ruin it and add sour pork flavoring? Yuk. Steak tough and leathery. Dessert even bad. Fewer odd flavor combos and better main dishes would be a great improvement.

I really enjoyed my meal at Epiphany. The menu was diverse, the service excellent, and the food was high quality. The only downside is that it is deceptively expensive. When you look at the menu, the prices are $10-$19 but these are tapas so you will need at least 2, more likely 3, to make a meal!

This place has lots of character and lots of very interesting menu options. Local farm to table - we ordered 2 entrees and 3 small plates- sticky rice with chicken, marinated pork shoulder, beet salad, corn billini and carrot soufflé. Our favorites were the corn thing and the pork shoulder. Each menu item has a very unique combination of ingredients/... More

Epiphany has outstanding food -- by far, the best fine dining restaurant in Tuscaloosa. No place else comes close. The constantly changing menu is imaginative. The emphasis on locally grown and raised meat and produce is admirable. We always come here for our special occasions.

We often eat at Epiphany and are amazed at the totally unexpected combinations of ingredients that Chef Jackson puts together to superb results. Frequently we take guests from much larger cities with many more restaurant choices and they all agree that Epiphany is a jewel they woulod like to take home with them. The menu rotates constantly, depending on the... More

I applaud the concept of the "farm to fork" dining. Buying everything local tends to improve the taste of the produce and meat since it tends to be fresher. While Epiphany employs this concept, their dishes fell a little short for my husband and I. They tried too hard to marry opposite ends of the spectrum...salty/sweet, sweet/sour, etc. They missed...
