We were there with out of town guests, and the whole evening was great. We asked for another table when we came in and the staff was very accommodating. The food was timely and well presented, the wait staff friendly, timely and professional.

It was a busy night. Water glasses were never refilled, drink order took awile, entrees were brought without salad plates being picked up. Our waitress was nice. I think they were just a little understaffed. Would definitely go back. One of the best restaurants in Edmonds.

Epulo is hands down our favorite restaurant, not only for the food but for the atmosphere. I believe food is a love language and my heart and belly are always full after Epulo. We love sharing Epulo with our friends and annually bring guests from Australia for an amazing dining experience. We’ve never had anything on the menu that we didn’t love, from cocktails to small plates to entrees and dessert; it’s always a win!!

We had a lovely private birthday celebration for two. Attentive service was appreciated. Even though sports were on television in the bar, we didn't hear anything from there. Swordfish special with an extremely tasty, subtle pesto was crazy good.

We came in on Sunday evening to treat our out-if-town guest to a lovely quiet dinner. When we arrived, it was after dark and the candles were all lit on the walls. It gave a warm glow throughout the restaurant. We had a lovely meal, each enjoying a different entree. Our friend had the lamb chops which she said were delicious. My husband says he is stuck in a rut because he has the same dish every time we come here- the short ribs. They did not disappoint. I enjoyed the penne pasta with foraged mushrooms- just the appetizer size, and it was more than enough. We had a lovely evening though the noise level grew to be quite high before we left.

We were seated right inside the front door behind the hostess and next to a large party of about 16. We asked to be seated at a different table but the hostess would be too loud elsewhere in the restaurant. We were seated in a booth that was facing the large party on the open side and the booth was so high that we couldn’t see any of the rest of the restaurant so we might as well have been at home it was so isolating. We had our menus for a good amount of time and then finally our waitress came by but she said that she was going to take the order of the larger party and then would get back to us. Didn’t even take a drink order. Finally, a busboy was hurrying past our table and we asked him if he could take our order which he did. Our food came out pretty quickly but for some reason it wasn’t hot. I had the beef short rib on top of some mashed potatoes and some lettuce underneath that and every thing was barely warm - the potatoes almost cool. The minestrone soup had mostly green peas in it and was very sweet. The penne pasta was nothing special for the price.

First time to Epulo. Been wanting to go for years. Brought a good friend. Had a great table up front. Service by Debra was both hospitable and helpful We had loved the Gem salad, and had the petite filet special and the beef short rib. Both were great. The special wine of the night was a Roth Cab and after it opened up was a great bottle of red. The only seemingly off item for us was the chimichurri with the petite filet. I think my date would have preferred a different kind of sauce. That's it . We will be back I'm sure. Thanks.

For oysters and the wine list. while I've had great meals there before, my dining companion and I had food that was mediocre. The herbed fries were extremely salty. the pumpkin risotto was awful, the jambalaya was bland and the prawns on top were, again, extremely salty.

Showed up ~25 minutes early from reservation time and were seated promptly.

Service was excellent. Ordered multiple small plates that came out one at a time which I appreciate. The Octopus was amazing!!

Really good wine list.

Will be back for sure.

Epulo is a great restaurant especially on Sunday nights when wine is 50% off. Their salads and small bites are very good. The wine list has a lot of variation and good value.

I have been to this restaurant on several occasions and usually the kitchen is very reliable. Surprisingly it was a bit off on my recent visit. The rockfish was barely warm and very salty. The specialty cocktail was underwhelming mainly a large glass of crushed ice. It was a disappointment. Not to say I won’t give it another try in hopes of the great food and drink I have experienced in the past

Stayed at the marina and walked up to town. The online menu captured my attention so we booked an early reservation. Service was excellent from the moment we walked in the door. Looked over the menu, I ordered the soup of the day to start, duck breast for entree; my wife ordered a pizza. The food was outstanding, as was the chocolate tort desert my wife ordered at the end. Will definitely go back!

As always, Epulo was a fantastic experience. The friendly waitstaff are happy to explain the menu and make recommendations. The atmosphere is very cozy and beautiful, you feel like you want to be there all night. The service is fast but not too fast, the food is amazing and while our favorites remain, there are seasonal fresh ideas that do not disappoint.

We sat at table 42. The entire experience from the time we sat at the bar to being seated in the corner of the restaurant, having dinner and more drinks, and until leaving was absolutely wonderful. Thank you to the chefs, servers, bartender, and that lovely gal who called me back to help me reserve table 42 for the evening. Everyone had a great meal and a fabulous time. Sent the manager a note of thanks today.

Best,
Denise Stefansson

What a nice surprise to get a wonderful dinner and dessert, then top it off with a half priced bottle of wine. We did clean our plates. Ribs and pasta with chicken were delicious. Desserts of raspberry risotto and bread pudding yummy! We miss Edmonds!
