Chris greeted us at the door 1/2 hour before close with open arms. She's the one that makes this place so successful. Ordered lamb stew and meatballs. Friendly staff too! Highly recommended.

Everything is good about this place. Home quality excellent food, lovely atmosphere. Crocketas were excellent. The meals are quite big coming with soup and salad. Halibut was superb. My friend have enjoyed their lamb chops. Check out the LAN Rioja wine. Reservations recommended.

This was my second visit to Epi's and the food is as wonderful as I remembered. Started with the fried calamari appetizer which is big enough for the four of us to share. The calamari was very tender and the sauce was yummy. The special...More

They do have gift certificates. You cannot go wrong with their specials! Steaks are good but if you go to an authentic Basque restaurant, why not try what they specialize in? Chris and her crew seriously make you feel like... More
