I went to Epic last Monday with a friend.... I have lived here for three years and don't know how I've not been Epic Bistro.... But I hadn't, And I was really impressed! I'm surprised I haven't heard about it from more people. I had a braised lamb over sweet potato gnocchi and it was great! Very flavorful and lots... More

Our waitress suggested a good bottle of wine that went with my husband's steak and my lamb shank. Both entrees were prepared perfectly and the wine pairing added the extra touch to the meal. Other desserts were recommended to us by the waitress, but we wanted to try the hungarian shortbread dessert. After trying the dessert we understood why it... More

We ate here during Restaurant Week in January and were pleasantly surprised with the food choices. We don’t usually order Pork in restaurants but the pork choice was awesome! The Epic is back on! The service was very good and attentive. Our waiter was knowledgeable in wine choices and pleasant. We will look to come back for dinner.

Epic bistro has a nice craft beer selection. A very well put together bar/ pub food menu. I had the lamb sliders- they were awesome.

Our server Robert, was the best. A sense of professionalism that still made us feel welcome and at ease. His timing was always well planned, making us feel relaxed and never rushed. His recommendations not only made it easier to order from the enticing menu, but made the the entire dinner extremely satisfying. Thanks to all who made our visit... More

We dined in mid-December in a Friday night, and this place was dead. Three other tables the entire time we were there. The restaurant is lovely, probably the highlight. Our server was a little strange. The food was decent enough. The charcuterie plate was a very nice app. All of our entrees were okay, not spectacular though. Given the prices,... More

On the Kalamazoo Mall (Used to be called"The Mall") this is one of the better restaurants in Kalamazoo. A very nice finer dining side and the Bistro/Bar side. Part of a local restaurant chain, this is one of the best, and always dependable in quality of food and service.

Generally speaking not a good experience. A couple of high points, extensive beer list, chef's board and cheese board appetizers are tasty. Service was reasonable considering we were a large group. The rest is mediocre at best...$5.50 Caesar Salad is a joke...McDonalds is better. Since Epic is supposed to be a Bistro, what better place to order Steak Frites? The... More

This is where we had dinner on a mystery trip. We has a choice of Flat Iron Steak or Salmon. I had the steak. It was good but a little spicy with pepper. They were a little slow in serving us, but we odd have 49 in our party. The ones who had salmon said it was very good.
