Awesome food. Recommend the Brussel Sprouts and Kim Chi. Tasty wine and great service. Casual dinning atmosphere.

The Beet Cremeaux is probably one of the best desserts I've ever tasted. The look is so curious and unique. One bite and you are hooked! The menu changes pretty frequently which is probably what makes the experience unique to the area. There is usually a variety of vegan and meat choices (beef, chicken, pork, and seafood) that will satisfy... More

They try to get too earthy and fancy with the food. Not a traditional restaurant and menu, which isn't always a good thing. Service was average at best, did not do a good job of describing how the food is prepared and presented. Food was horrible. My wife took about 3 bites of her salad and pushed away. I'll eat... More

Nice quiet restaurant for a good date night away from life struggles. Farm to table menus offers lots of choices and good tastes.

Traveling a long distance (from Indiana) means trying to find the local restaurant that serves unique offerings with outstanding taste. Epiphany did just that! Their farm to table menu was outstanding, featuring small plates highlighting fresh, locally grown or raised ingredients, and pairing some interesting foods together to make your meal a very special experience. Anthony, our server and food... More

I ate dinner here with a group of girlfriends recently, and we had a great time sampling lots of different dishes. Instead of ordering our own plates, we decided to split three small plates + bread service, two large plates, and two desserts. We all agreed that the short ribs and the chocolate mousse cake were our favorites, but the... More

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
