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

I was cruising TripAdvisor looking for a good spot when I came across the review mentioning the Chef's table deal and dialed up right away. They told me to show up at 8 and everything would be set. Walked in a bit early and Chef Tres was still busy with the dinner rush but I sat at the bar and... More

My friend/colleague and I go here almost every week during the school year. The food is creative, bright, fresh, and entirely sourced from local farms. They have an excellent wine selection. It's definitely a place for foodie types, and not for people who want to pay $15 for a huge plate of food. The plates are all small, tapas-style (so... More

I went in on a Monday night and business was slow. Had a drink at the bar and looked over the menu, saw they had a chef's table tasting deal and inquired. You usually have to reserve it beforehand, but the chef said give him 20 minutes and then we could start. I added the 1/2 glass per course wine... More

Five of us ordered four starters and four main dishes one being a daily special. All were excellent. The portions were small, even for a small plate restaurant. A hearty eater would not fare well here without running up quite a bill.

Rutabaga gnocchi was the surprise treat on the menu. The chef does a fine job of mixing divergent ingredients to come up with a non-Southern taste. Menu items change based on available produce. Food is locally sourced. Note previous reviews of diners who just did not get it. Go to Cracker Barrel. Service is attentive, eager and restaurant well staffed... More
