The "GO-TO" restaurant tucked away in a quaint location in Meridian, Idaho. Sure, the food is beyond fabulous. Luscious, indeed. However, I feel the success stems from the attentive and caring reception of the owners and staff. Truly, a wonderful dining experience.

This is a wonderful restaurant. It is like walking into a friendly neighborhood restaurant in the Basque country. The people are so welcoming and helpful in explaining the menu items. We live in Boise and had visitors from the DC area. Where better to take them than Epi's? They were impressed with the atmosphere, the food and the friendly service.... More

After reading the reviews, I was anxiously anticipating our dinner at Epi's. Chicken & fish was pretty good. The tongue was tender but lacked flavor. The lamb was tough and lacked flavor. Our server and other staff members were welcoming and very attentive. Calamari was very good. Nice people but not impressed with the food, but I'm obviously in the... 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.

Thank jim k
