We've been dining at Epiphany ever since we moved to Tuscaloosa about 8 1/2 years ago. In our opinion it IS THE BEST RESTAURANT in Tuscaloosa. Not only is the quality of the food outstanding, but it is price appropriately for a fine dining experience. You will dine on dishes which are unique and all of which made with organic... More

My wife and I made our second trip to Epiphany last night! What an amazing meal! And an amazing experience! Epiphany makes available a "tastings" dinner with 6-7 courses prepared right in front of you by Tres Jackson, the owner and chef. Each course was outstanding and delicious! We also elected the optional wine parings option and really enjoyed the... More

I think this is the best restaurant in town, and one of the better in the region. A farm to fork style, focused on local or regional products, with often-changing menu depending on what is available. Very creative dishes, with interesting combinations of foods and flavors. If they offer the half-price happy hour small plates, it can be a bargain,... More

My wife and I search for new restaurants when we travel to capture local flavor. The Epiphany Cafe is just such an experience. Surrounded by cafes that appeal to the nearby U of Alabama student body, this unassuming front conceals some real foodie food that cannot be matched. I did learn something very important when ordering in a new place.... More

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

We are sorry to hear that you were dissatisfied with your experience at Epiphany Farm-to-Fork. We were wondering if you can give us any feedback about how to make the menu more descriptive. We already list almost all of the ingredients of each dish, and we try to shy from elaborate wording except in the event that said wording is... 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...
