The food is outstanding and you are made to feel like a family member. You are greeted before getting to the door like you are family or old friends. The entire experience is like that. It is an experience that I always look forward to.

The staff treats you like family. Expect to pay well over $100 for two people. Reservations a must...

Epi's is our go to restaurant when we have visitors from out of town and other special occasions. My husband and I have spent our last two anniversary dinners there and we plan on making it a tradition. The employees are warm and welcoming and the food is very comforting. If you love creamy, rich food with high quality ingredients,... More

I travel for business and eat at a lot of restaurants, so take this advice from me: if you are in Boise and are dining out, make the short drive to downtown Meridian (20 minutes max from downtown Boise) and go to Epi's. Many people don't know that Boise has a significant and vibrant Basque community. We went to Epi's... More

Everything was just great. The building itself is adorable. The staff (I don't know if that is even what they are called here,) they didn't seem like they were "working", just bringing us awesome food and sharing stories and making us feel at home. Everyone including the chefs as well as other customers seemed genuinely excited to be there. Food... More

Owner Chris and staff Brigette, really bring it on Basque culture and traditional foods, the tongue is so tender, in a think pepper sauce. Small, intimate, hard to get reservations its so popular. A must for any intimate, friendly dining.

Epi's is one of those places that if you are feeling a little down, or lonely, you should probably go sit and have a meal here. The food is Basque, as the area around here was settled by the basque. Basque cuisine is kind of hard to describe, kind of a cross between Spanish, (as in Spain) and French cooking.... More

Small family run restaurant. Home style Basque food...great service. None better. Not corporate or fast, just a relaxing meal where the employees treat you like family. This place is my top pick of any restaurant i have enjoyed worldwide.

We have been there a couple of times and have really enjoyed not only the food but the friendly service and caring attitude of the staff. Kind of like having dinner at grandma's house!
