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

Excellent service. Wonderful meal. Best wine selection. The cheese tray was excellent. Our server suggested wine for me. Kung Fu girl. It was exceptional. My meal was superb.

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

Make no mistake this is a tapas place....and it it's good. Wholesome flavorful small plates done right. We were there in a weeknight while school was out and it was slow, but the food was on point. Good service and sharing plates and flavor profiles makes for great conversation. I recommend.

Such a wonderful place. Took my adult children, brother and his 7 year old. Now my niece is exceptionally picky and we did not think she would try anything. The bartender, Allie, was absolutely great. Brought my niece some handmade lemonade which she loved. Chef trace gave her a plate of meat and she ate every bite! Although we couldn't... More

I visited Tuscaloosa for the first time. While researching restaurants I came across Epiphany Café. I was attracted by the Chef's Counter Tasting with wine pairings. The meal was spectacular. We dined on scallops, tuna, lamb, beef, and numerous vegetables. Every dish had multiple vegetables making up the sauces and sides. The combination of flavors was ethereal. The wine pairings...

Went with family to this upscale restaurant. The appetizers were shared and good. Excellent salad. Fish was well prepared. Excellent textures, flavored, and spices. Had drink that was underwhelming. Save room for dessert. Excellent chocolate cake.

Visited on a weeknight. Waiter explained the menu and made suggestions. The atmosphere is lovely in the vintage building. Dinner selections vary but continue to be interesting.

It was great! The food was unique yet very interesting. This chef was extremely creative in composing dishes and while I would not have thought to put it together, I felt it worked beautifully. Definitely out of the box!
