Had not eaten here in a decade. Our daughter wanted to go on her 23rd birthday. We were skeptical. Ordered and shared several small plates. All wonderful. The hot chicken, eggplant meatballs, gnocchi and the Brussels sprouts were all excellent. BY FAR the best restaurant in Tuscaloosa.

We ate here 8/16/16 and the wines are very expensive. House Merlot $11.00 /serving, house Cabernet $9.00. The servings were sized like tapas and recommended to choose 3. My wife's zucchini meatballs were too spicy hot to eat. Melon soup ($10.00) was good. Our meal cost $61.00. I wold not recommend or return.

If you love no frills restaurants with friendly service and freshly prepared good quality food - this is for you. We went on a busy night but still received an excellent experience. Brussell Sprout dish was best we've had

Came to Epiphany because of the location and the tripadvisor ratings. It did not disappoint. Superb menu. Difficult to decide what to eat because of all the options. We went with the slow cooked lamb and the beef ribs. Also had the house made ricotta gnocchi and red chili biscuits. All were mmmmmm yummy good. The service was top notch.... More

Had a business dinner here and everyone enjoyed the food. Cafe serves small plates and suggests 2 per person. Choices were intriguing and tasty. My only small complaint were prices- for exampke desserts were $10 but would recommend.

We had a very helpful and friendly waiter, Anthony who was delightful and sharp. This restaurant is for special occasions, a romantic dinner or for those who love spoiling them selves with interesting food when they go out and don't want the normal boring menu. We had the Brussels Sprouts which was out of this world and highly recommended! As... More

This is a good restaurant. The menu is a little surprising and the combination of tastes and colors is interesting and nice. Small plates are available and service is good.

Mostly small plates but each one a work of art. It seems that they change regularly and next time we may try the chef's table tasting menu (we were with the kids this time and that made it not so feasible). The desserts were to die for, we had 3, including a chocolate espresso mousse cake, the key lime pie... More

It was really nice to find a restaurant with a selection of healthy nicely prepared food. They say its tapas style but I would describe it as small shareable portions. Food is all grown locally and the chefs do a great job of preparing wonderfully tasty and unique dishes. There are lots of options. The microbrew selection was also nice... More
