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!
We've been twice in the last month and it was fabulous both times. Love the Brussel sprout appetizer. Great service too!
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.
Had great small plates and pasta. Will take all my foodie friends!!!!
