Unexpected Fine Dining in Downtown Tuscaloosa

Epiphany's innovative and unusual menu sets it apart from other restaurants in Tuscaloosa. It is high end, small portions and offers great service. The menu is fresh and uses quality locally sourced ingredients and the wine list is top drawer. As well as the al la carte menu there is a degustation... read more

We went to dinner here after my son's graduation from the University of Alabama. The food was simply amazing and the service was great, too. Great farm to table restaurant. I would highly recommend.

Using local produce to create a novel taste palate Epiphany offers an alternative to the ordinary. The Brussel sprout dish is a must try offering on the menu.

Ate here for first time - and last. Plan on spending $25 per person easily and that's with water only to drink. Food was exotic, strange and there was darn little of it. Reminded me of old Wendy's commercial: "Where's the beef?" I like the idea of farm to table but beyond that Epiphany is a trendy, hip, restaurant fit... More

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.

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.

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

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
