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...

Epiphany Cafe is an up and coming Tuscaloosa favorite for locals and visitors to the town. It offers local fresh products carefully prepared and appetizingly presented. The food was excellent. A little on the higher priced side for the proportion served but still well worth the dining experience. Yes I will return for another great meal.

Here is what we had - small plates of tasty sweet corn blinis, apple and wonderful pork salad with a tangy dressing, pillowy soft ricotta gnocchi with delicious crumbles of sausage in the tomato sauce, two servings of the fresh made brown sugar bread with Berkshire pork whipped butter which we fought over, a heaping plate of crunchy grilled/roasted brussel...

My wife and I always look for restaurants that feature localvore. She is a vegetarian, and always looks for natural and organic, too. We found it here. But what was best about Epiphany is that it did not serve predictable mass production food. The new lasagna, made from crepes instead of noodles, was a hit with my wife, and I... More

This high end restaurant has a very unique menu. It did take our table some time to sort through and find what appealed. I ordered the duck breast but the poor men ordered the steak. When it arrived at the table it was a major disappointment. It was a very petite serving leaving my 2 guests very hungry. A side... More

Don't miss Epiphany. They have fresh, amazing food and a knowledgeable wait staff. Order absolutely anything and you'll like it, but the bread service is to die for. One note, if you're picky, it may not be for you because they don't like to make substitutions.
