Whether you are familiar with Basque cuisine or not, do yourself a favor and plan a dining experience at Epi's. From the moment you walk in the door you will feel like you've entered a familiar family dining room and that's exactly how you will be treated . . . like family. We have been regulars at Epi's ever since... More

Our son and son-in-law were visiting from California so we wanted to take them someplace special and unique. Epi's was certainly a good choice. The Basque cuisine is something you can't get everywhere and it was delicious. Squid, sea bass, and cod were all excellent. Most places charge extra for the soup and salad--at Epi's, both are included in the... More

Atmosphere is authentic and somewhat crowded but enjoyable. Located in a small house on Main Street. Highly recommended by the Basque community.

This is a very family oriented restaurant serving Basque (an area in Spain) food which is not Spanish-Mexican food. They greet you with a hug, no matter who you are, and wait on you like you are Queen of Sheba. Such fresh salads, rich sauces, bread, tender meat! They satisfy the kids with favorites & serve beer & wine. It... More

We LOVE going to Epi's for the great food, wonderful service, friendly owner interaction, and homey atmosphere. I've lived here just three short years, but this is by far my favorite place in the Treasure Valley to dine!

True, authentic Basque cuisine and food. The owner is using her mother's own recipes to prepare the food today. The food is outstanding and the service is top notch. The owner greets each patron and personally welcomes them to Epi's! What a great experience I have had each and every time I have eaten there.

Very small place, so it is advised to make reservations a week or more ahead. We went with two other couples, everyone loved the food! For appetizers make sure you try the crouqetas, they are the best! My husband said the lamb chops were the best he has had in a long time. I had the steak medallions, and they... More

My husband and I chose Epi's based on trip advisor recommendations. I have never agreed more with a restaurant being rated #1! We called ahead to see if we could even get in and to find out if there is a dress code, as we had spent the day in the car en route to Idaho. We were assured that... More

We go there pretty much every year as a family, and the food is always wonderful. It's definitely not a fast restaurant, you probably want to make sure you have at least 2 hours if not 3 to spare. They do take reservations, but I'm not sure about walk ins. The food is absolutely tremendous though. And they have a... More
