We now have a tradition of eating at Epi's just after Christmas! We relax and visit with our family and relish a sumptuous meal we didn't cook! This time the scallops were my choice and I have never had a better preparation. So rich and yum. Others had pork chops and ink fish, which was purportedly very rich also. I... More

Wonderful food and they treat new customers like they are old friends. Love the place. Downtown Meridian ID. Parking can be a problem and make reservations first.

This is the one place everyone should go when they visit Idaho. From the moment we entered we were treated like family. Owner, Chris, was so inviting and you could feel her warm energy throughout the visit. Our server and all the staff were skilled, knowledgable, and fun! The food was To Die For!! Like nothing we have ever had... More

I cannot recommend this place more highly. Wow. FIRST - GET RESERVATIONS. We didn't, but were lucky - we arrived on a Boise State home game evening and were presented a cancellation table. In the corner. It was perfect. But the absolutely friendly hostess would have kindly turned us away (bummer) had it been another night. Our dishes were marvelous.... More

Epi's is a family owned and operated restaurant handed down for generations. There are mainly traditional Basque dishes available. Food is great but quite pricey. Service is phenomenal! They treat you like family.

You will be met with a big smile and always made comfortable. Everything on the menu is very good. Must make a reservation because it is small and usually full. Spend the evening and ENJOY!!!

I have been coming to Epi's since before I moved here in 2004. Always top notch food and service. Really cannot think of a time we were ever disappointed.
