Diner Reviews
  • "Judging from the packed restaurant before 7pm, one can tell this is a favorite and popular restaurant in downtown Edmonds. We enjoyed reacquainted ourselves with Epulo during the last evening of Seattle Restaurant Week. Our three courses were very generous, beautifully plated, and delicious. Next time, we won't wait in three years to revisit. A great restaurant and worth the visit!"

  • "My girl friend and I are a frequent dinner. We went for restaurant week. Extremely Disappointed. Portions were extremely small. Even the cauliflower appetizer was smaller than normal. "

  • "Our dinner was amazing! The lamb was delicious and the salad that came with it was awesome. The duck was scrumptious and the risotto and brussels sprouts were very very good! The little sampler, chicken salad, should definitely be on the menu too!!! It was really GOOD!!"

  • "Six of us arrived to celebrate moms 83rd birthday. Most had never been and didn't know what to expect. Appetizers were amazing - best calamari ever tasted was brother-in-laws response to one. Entrees were fantastic, from pasta dishes to wood-fired pizza and more. Dessert was incredible especially lemon sorbet and home made donuts. Wonderful evening - highly recommend!"

  • "I had a reservation for a large group party, for 8 people. The waitstaff was amazing and very attentive. The food was great. The only caveat was that our reservation was at 8 PM but we weren't sat until 8:20. Though it was due to folks not wanting to leave. And not the restaurants fault."

  • "The modern decor is classy and appealing and people were enjoying lively conversations over their drinks, food and background music. We ordered a salad appetizer and their special martini. Marinated lacinato kale was the salad advertised, but it was curly green kale that showed up on the plate, and despite the apple and pecorino accompanying it, it was not a flavorful item. The same was true of the martini. Our Entrees were a halibut with pesto special and their beef tenderloin menu item. The halibut was perfectly cooked and the sauce that graced the accompanying pasta was delicious. The beef was especially well prepared with a rich demiglace. So the entrees get four stars, but the salad and drink were not so hot. I'll be back though!"

  • "My sister and mother met me there and we had a light dinner. I have food allergies and don't eat meat so there weren't a lot of options. However, they had a gluten free pasta and several, wonderful vegetable dishes. We ordered salads and wine to start and they were fantastic. Next, we had pasta and roasted vegetables. Delicious! If I were a meat eater, this place would be a 5 star. The meat dishes looked amazing and everyone in the place seemed to be really enjoying themselves. This is such a gem for the Edmonds area. Loved it and highly recommend it."

  • "THE AMBIANCE: very nice! warm, old fashioned light bulbs gave the place a yellowy glow--not too dim, just right. The rich wooden booths and a beautiful bar were beautiful. And there is a chair in one of the lady's bathroom stalls which was of course, a great talking point for a dozen twenty-somethings in my group! Note that this place was busy and noisy from 7-8:30pm. THE FOOD/DRINKS: So many great choices on the menu. It was hard to pair it down. The lamb chops tasted homemade! Everything we tried was good: pesto or artichoke heart pizza, pasta with mushrooms, monkfish, and don't forget their KILLER Theo Chocolate Truffle Torte. And the drink options were fabulous! THE STAFF: Attentive! Funny! Great problem-solvers! We loved them!!!"

  • "This was our first time at Epulu. We had been wanting to try it for quite some time. We had reservations and were offered either a reserved seat in the dining room or to sit in the bar for happy hour. We chose to go with the bar seating as we could order off the discounted happy hour menu or the regularly priced dining menu. The tables in the bar were a bit awkward. Very small tables. I sat on the "booth" side of the table and my fiance sat on the chair. The booth was quite uncomfortable and was much higher than the chair, making my normally short self tower over the table. The ambience and feel of the bar was great. Highly recommand the sliders! We will be back:)"

  • "We live in Edmonds and it is so nice to have a dependable restaurant to stop in or bring friends when they are in town. Our meal was wonderful as usual. Wait staff helpful and pleasant. My only issue is the noise level. Sometimes difficult to hear because of the crowd noises. We find that so many hard surfaces makes it difficult to have a conversation at the table."

  • "Good seating/ lighting. Asked the host via online if they would have a cake ready for my wife since we were celebrating her birthday. We got there late (approx 30 mins) and i had forgotten about the cake, at the end of the meal, they surprised not only my wife, but me as well. As for the food, very good, highly recommend this place to the casual diner looking for a tasty bite. Thanks to Epulo Bistro!!"

  • "I normally go to epulo because it is our favorite neighborhood spot. So, when I had a four-person business dinner to schedule, I thought I would give epulo a try. It was outstanding. Though the mood is warm & energetic, our four-person booth was perfect for what turned out to be a highly productive conversation. The service was attentive, but in the background, as you want it for a business meal. One of my out-of-town attendees was raving in an e-mail about both his steak and the wine we had. Definitely recommended for business dinners -- easy parking, and nighttime I-5 South traffic to fight getting into Seattle."

  • "Food was prepared perfectly, delicious, portions just right, a real gem for folks who know their favorite flavors."
    Dined on 1/28/2014
  • "Service was attentive, friendly and impeccable. The ambience is warm and inviting with high booths that reduces noise and increases privacy. Every small plate dish we ordered (burrata, polenta fries, brussel sprouts with pancetta) arrived in nice presentation, warm and seasoned well with great flavor. Our entrees were generous portions without being over the top. My tenderloin was cooked perfectly to my request for medium. My wife ordered the rigatoni with chicken and it was delicious. Overall excellent place, that has just become one of my new 'go to' places to take people from out of town. There is thought, care and attentiveness in this restaurant which shows consistency and quality."

  • "I really want to complement the wait staff at Epulo. We were running late due to traffic problems. Called ahead to let them know. They held the table, welcomed us warmly - then proceeded to give us speedy service because we were trying to make a show. Good food, great wine list, terrific ambiance and absolutely stellar staff!"

  • "Food was really very good, however the tables are very close together and the noise level is fairly high, dim lighting seems to work against the higher energy then expected restaurant, the food is a bit pricey, but they have some reasonably priced selections as well. For sure a good choice if your hanging out in Edmonds and want to be close to the ferry or shopping"

  • "We were in Edmonds for a meeting and wanted something great for late dinner. Epulo Bistro was highly recommended and we add our enthusiasm. Pasta, grilled veggies, lamb were terrific. Service was prompt and gracious despite a busy Saturday night. Wine list was versatile and very good. Although not local, we would welcome the chance to revisit."

Kale salad wonderful, polenta sticks, burrata cheese melting deliciousness, fire roasted cauliflower - yum, rock shrimp & calamari perfectly cooked and two wood fired pizzas - fig, gorgonzola carmelized onions and the special meat pizza of the day. Every bite was a savory delight. Very reasonabily priced, classy atmosphere, excellent wine."

The dishes are presented very nicely, no problem with the staff in splitting our salad and dessert. Our glasses of water were always filled, something we both appreciate. They are doing everything right."
