“Always a great time”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

Hadn't been back to STT for two years and there was speculation/rumor that Epernay was either gone or intermittent operation. Alas, it's still there and has undergone a slight update in the interior arrangements. Menu is similar as the past, with slight reduction in choices. All three of us had seafood (salmon, bass) which was fresh and delightful. If you're looking for a non-touristy, low key, good value hangout, Epernay is still the place to go.

As you found, the rumors have been greatly exaggerated. We, are most definitely, here.

Thank you. Thank you for coming in. Thank you noticing the changes

We will keep serving new specials and getting fresh fish. I am now buying only local caught fish, so when you come back we will have more great seafood for you. looking forward seeing you again.

“Wine in Frenchtown”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

My wife and I have been in St. Thomas since August and The Epernay is a place we keep enjoying. The wines are the best, the atmosphere is great and "Blues" music plays in the background. We found the seafood to be prepared with particular expertise. They probably do get the freshest fish since the Fisherman's Market is just across the street. Mike and his staff, especially Lisa and Fernando, are very friendly and wine savvy. We will definitely go back again and again.

“Ask Mike for a Peanut Butter and Jelly Shoot with Strawberry!!!”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Epernay is a great little place in Frenchtown on St. Thomas. It usually gets a late night crowd. There is an excellent wine selection and the food is great. If the weather is nice I like to sit out on the covered balcony and take in the fresh air. You are only a few yards from the harbor front and all the fishing vessels. Mike the owner has come up with some amazing tasting shots using some fantastic new flavored vodkas. My favorite is the Peanut Butter and Jelly shoot with a little Strawberry. Wow!

I'm pleased to hear how much you enjoy the PB&J shot, Adam. It's bound to be a classic! Thank you for coming in, and rating us.

You've touched upon everything we aim for—great food, a relaxing atmosphere, and an excellent wine selection. I appreciate your kind words, and hope to welcome you back. Lets talk about that idea we have for Saturday nights. We'll have a Peanut Butter and Jelly shot waiting for you...

Cheers,

“Treasure of a Wine Bar!”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

We were recommended to go to Epernay after dinner at Enkai Sushi just down the way. Epernay sits between 7 or 8 other fun bars and restaurants in a little higher end piece of Charlotte Amalie called Frenchtown. Epernay sits waterfront with a great patio area and a beautifully renovated interior. The dark wood, low lights and cocktail bar make this place feel more like an oak room in Napa than an island retreat. The staff was very knowledgable about their wine/cheese recommendations and each little morsel of food out of the kitchen had it's own gourmet twist. Thank Epernay for the wonderful night!

You're welcome, Hector! I'm glad that your visit turned into a "wonderful night." What wine did you try? We hope to welcome you back the next time you are in Frenchtown. Maybe this time for dinner as well. Until then, thank you, and enjoy the rest of your summer!

Cheers,
