A family favorite for sure! Took my folks there for moms birthday. Everyone is so friendly and the food is just as good. Kids enjoy the kids menu and the adults enjoy the beverages.

We finally made a reservation for our anniversary after getting denied a few times due to being full. So with that we were expecting amazing service and food since this place is always booming with people. Our drinks were empty before our meals came out. The server finally came by to ask if we wanted another round but then never asked how the food was. She walked by us multiple times where she could have quickly asked those two questions where she went ahead to get the table next to us card to cash them out she could have easily put in our drink order at the same time. I never like putting down a servers job because I was a server so I know how it is. But this just wasn’t a good first experience for us. We will be back though for another chance to have a better one. Overall the food was amazing and loved the atmosphere.

The service, ambiance and cocktails were great. Their outdoor dining spot felt well ventilated and heated. Our food was a little under seasoned, otherwise it was perfect.

The Monday night special item, prime rib, was less appealing than it sounded. The cuts are thick, about 1.5 inches. My father's plate seemed to be about 50% fat. The au jus, or whatever it was, was already poured. We both expected it to come on the side. Sitting in the tent "outside," since the wind was strong that night, caused the tent to boom like a drum. The outside was warm, plenty of heaters. Our server took our order, but didn't check back much after our food was delivered.

Perhaps b/c of Covid restrictions and/or 25% seating, the experience was not up to par based on prior visits to Epulo.

It was our first time at Epulo and the food, service, and ambience were fantastic. The Boneless Braised Beef Short Rib was so good. In addition, they had a very good wine list that was reasonably priced. We will definitely be coming back soon.

Good food. Being told we needed to limit our time on patio to 2 hours before we could even place our drink orders was a little unwelcoming. The tent experience was a little loud in a windstorm.

This is a beautiful restaurant. The food and service were just wonderful. The remodel from the previous restaurant is just amazing.....so much nicer. I had kale salad and garlic/onion flat bread....so good. My husband had gem salad and his favorite short rib pappardelle. The restaurant was a little cool but lots of air circulating....which is good.

As always the food and service were outstanding. However with the sliders opened up it was chilly inside. If we need to have more air circulation for Covid protection, I can put up with lower temperatures.

We had a blonde female server who was super fantastic! Just the right amount of interaction and attention and very likeable. The food was seriously amazing! The beet salad was really delicious and well balanced, the rigatoni formaggio was mind blowing! The braised beef short ribs were really tender and the sauce they came with was great. The black cod (a special) was perfectly prepared and well sauced, the farro side it came with was really simple but tasty, we thought it was a little heavy for the fish but separately they were awesome! Really nice ambiance and decor. Great restaurant, definitely go try it!!

New location and ambiance is great. Like most places for now, the menu is limited due to Covid. However, all that there is was very good. Good servers. Just need to teach the bartender how to make a decent Side Car. See recipe below. (Use good Cognac!)
SIDE CAR (The preferred libation of The Thin Man)
Spread superfine sugar on small plate. Rub lemon wedge halfway around rim of chilled martini or coupe glass. Dip moistened side of glass in sugar to lightly coat outside rim of glass. Set aside.
In cocktail shaker, combine Cognac (2oz), Cointreau(1oz), and lemon juice(1/2oz). Add ice and shake vigorously until well chilled, about 30 seconds. Strain into prepared martini or coupe glass and serve. 2 to 1 to 1/2. Add lemon peal or strip to glass.

Server was nice, but charged us for 4 glasses of wine when we only had three. I didn’t
Review the bill prior to leaving, but noticed it when we got home. Did not want to return and make a fuss over $8 overcharge, so let it go.
