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!

Chris has Charisma Charisma Charisma! Sweet and friendly and you feel like family. The food is made from scratch and very special. If you are lucky enough to go on a night when the cream of mushroom soup is on, you will enjoy. You do NOT leave hungry. Endless portions of bread and salad and soup. yes! soup AND salad.... More

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

Brought to Meridian for a funeral on a cold and rainy weekend, we remembered our dear friend with a toast of Syrah and a bowl of lamb stew filled with the soul of generations of Basque cooking. Chorizo, peppers, mushrooms swimmng in sherry and butter began our homey feast. Sorry to say after the great homemade fries and lamb stew,... More

Cozy family run restaurant with delicious food. Don't miss dessert here. It is amazing! The ladies who run this place truly treat you like family. Make reservation early or you won't find a table...yes, it really is that good!

Everything was wonderful. Charming intimate restaurant. They called back promptly to confirm my reservation, recognized us upon arrival and seated, excellent service (prompt, efficient, personable, genuine, informative of menu items). In addition, our waiter was not hovering. He was always there when expected. Perfect service. Very sweet family owned restaurant in which they make you feel welcome from the beginning.... More
