Epi's is a medium sized restaurant with perhaps 20 tables located in a small building in Meridian Idaho. The name is homage to the owner's Basque grandmother who provided the inspiration for many of the recipes. The owner is gracious and will greet you at the door and will make you feel like you're part of her extended family. It... More

I've eaten at Epi's several times through the years and have never been dispappointed. Chris (co-owner) always takes times to greet you with a hug and thanks you for your patronage. I've had everything from the the ink fish to beef tongue, and everything in between. Impeccable ambiance, service and quality. Most highly recommend. Reservations required

The Best of the Best. A unique culinary experience. From the moment you arrive to the time you leave the service is fantastic, the food is superb, and the deserts are phenomenal, especially the Bread Pudding! Save room for desert. Family oriented, you are treated as one of their family when you arrive and throughout the totality of the dining... More

Wow! Tonight we went to Epi's for dinner. Superb, cozy and friendly atmosphere. The place is spotless! Clam chowder and salad were excellent. I had a Rib Eye and it was cooked perfectly and fork tender. One of the best steaks of all time. My wife had halibut and it was superb. Very, very friendly and hospitable hosts and servers.... More

My 87 year old mom and I go to Epi's for every celebration. The food is wonderful, no matter which dish you choose. We both love lamb but other dishes are great, too. They always do a wonderful job helping me have a meal that is safe from gluten and cross-contamination. But the ultimate reason we go there to celebrate... More

I consulted Trip Advisor to find the ideal restaurant to celebrate my wife's birthday. Epi's Basque Restaurant is by far the highest rated restaurant in our area - overhyped? Not a chance! It's a wonderful dining experience from the moment you are greeted by Chris, the owner, who treats total strangers like family. The cozy atmosphere of a converted home... More

I have eaten at Epi's on multiple occasions and it has always been outstanding. The food is always excellent and the service is the best. When we have guests from out of town, Epi's is the place we always take them.

Excellent service, it is like walking into an old friend's house, you feel welcomed instantly. Menu is on the smaller side but the taste of the food compensates well for that short coming. Drink menu is scant as well. Desserts are excellent. Very good, you won't be disappointed at Epi's!

Epi's is an epic experience. From the moment you walk in the door to the exit many hours later. The owner is the classic restaurateur. We have been many times and intend to go soon as it has been far too long. One time I had the Cod in garlic and cream. The chef gave me the recipe and I... More
