Dinner review

Excellent Basque food with a warm, friendly atmosphere. We have never had a bad meal at Epi's. Be sure and get reservations, as it is always busy.

Not your ordinary, incorporated, chain-style restaurant. Although the menu is a bit pricey,the excellent food, service, and ambience more than makes-up for it!

A small place in an old house, but what wonderful evening out. My wife said her flat iron steak was the best she had ever had. For dessert the bread pudding was to die for. We also had a very good waiter.

Me and my husband went to Epi's for our anniversary. This is the first time we have gone to Epi's and could not have been more impressed. The second you walk in the door you are greeted like family. We were told to pick any table that was open and the owner conversed with us like she already knew us.... More

Great food and fabulous hospitality. Eating here is like going to someone's home for dinner. The menu is varied and has some very unique items from seafood to traditional basque lamb dishes.

My husband and I were in the Boise area on job interviews. We prefer local, ethnic and smaller restaurants and had never had Basque food. The owner welcomed us like old family friends and both she and our server were exceptionally warm. We declined the menus and asked that they pick out our "Basque" meal for us. They served us...

We had a wonderful evening at Epi's. We were greeted and then served by the restaurant owner, who treated us like old friends, even though this was our first visit. My husband had tongue, which was outstanding and I had lamb, which was also excellent. The restaurant was crowded and a little noisy (it's small), but the atmosphere is so... More

My wife and I recently went to Epi's with friends. We had not been for a few years, but were glad we tried it again. We were welcomed warmly by Gina, the owner, who seated us and explained the evening specials. We tried the osso buco and it was one of the best we had ever had, served on a... More

Incredible service from the welcome through leaving. Not pushy or crying - just right and very homelike. Had never tried Basque food before. Had the cod (which comes with two filets and can come two ways - they gave me one of each). Everything was rich and flavorful, but not in a haute cuisine sort of way. It's more like... More

Wonderful romantic meal for our 21st wedding anniversary. We loved reading about the family history and enjoyed the recommendations of the appetizer and the wine. Delicious meal of the chefs choices. It's a delicacy that has become a favorite of ours.
