Despite being the night before their final closing, we expected quality farm-to-table during our dining experience. However, it was poorly seasoned and some items were burned to char (Brussel sprouts, carrots, and lamb). Epiphany was our favorite restaurant when we lived in town, and when we heard they were closing for good we traveled all the way from North Carolina to have one last taste. It is a shame the last taste was an awful one.

I've always loved Epiphany and the creative dishes they come up with. It's very unfortunate that they are closing December 17th. I would recommend everyone check out their new project called Animal Butter when it opens.

We ended up in Tuscaloosa because I went rogue with a hotel booking but after eating at Epiphany I am SO very glad that I did
I found it through TripAdvisor and booked it for an early dinner. We arrived to find it quiet and the restaurant empty, however there were many people eating at the bar when we arrived.
Eliza showed us to our table and was with us all evening and was, quite frankly superb - she was knowledgable, informative, enthusiastic, realistic, passionate and honest
The food here is described beautifully and when it arrives it looks and tastes just as delicious as it looks and everything we had was sublime - which included a free dish from the kitchen of shaved scallops with kumquat and chilli
Cocktails were creative, tasty and strong - if you are not staying in town then I would recommend an Uber so you can enjoy the drinks

It was a ball game weekend so there were a lot of big groups that were fairly loud, but not rowdy. We loved it. I did think it was strangely bright.

Food was outstanding, very different (in a good way) combinations of tastes and textures. Brussel Sprouts were a great way to start. You can decide between small plates or big plates for dinner - it was perfect for the evening with old friends, it was quiet so we could linger and chat (Wednesday evening in T-town - - - obviously the students study!) Or it might just be out of their price range. Will go back.

Service was slow, food was good,and interesting but quantity was too small for the price. Husband left hungry, after spending $45, and angry at doing so!

Whenever we visit Tuscaloosa, a visit to Ephiphany is on the calendar. The restaurant features a variety of well prepared appetizers, small plates, big plates, and desserts. The preparation is excellent, but with a minimalist presentation. The flavors are superb.

Had dinner with my husband. Great server, Eliza! Shared chanterelle mushroom small plate - very bland. You could do such great things with mushrooms and the kitchen failed miserably. Had to dump a ton of salt in it. Husband had spaghetti with sausage; he said it was ok. I had hot fried chicken. Liked the hash and pickled collard greens that came with the chicken. Chicken itself was tasty but I thought the batter was too thick - it almost overpowered the chicken. Thought the ambiance was ok - could be much better. It's like they haven't really decided what kind of atmosphere they were trying to create. All in all ok experience.

Some farm-to-table establishments flood you with information as an attempt to set themselves apart. This place did a wonderful job of empowering us as consumers, allowing us to make our own decisions and ask the questions that were important to us. The entire staff was both friendly and knowledgeable. We went on a Wednesday night, so it was fairly quiet. If you're looking for a date spot, this is one of the better places in T-Town. That said, make sure you bring your wallet.

TL;DR: worth it, in terms of customer empowerment, ambience, quality/taste of food, and service.

One of the best meal's I have ever eaten! Ingredients were so fresh and used so smartly together!! We ordered several different items.....and each was better than the previous.
Service (Jake) was great.....attentive and knew the menu well.
My only negative critic was that the music was a little loud for dinner conversation.....the food is the superstar so let it shine without distraction.

In Tuscaloosa for the football game and wanted fine dining. Everything was very nice. Not super hungry so did not sample a lot on menu. The waiter was very enthusiastic about the menu. He made the dining experience wonderful
