We were pleasantly surprised with the quality and flavor of the food. Restaurant was a little noisy, but it was also full. Wine list was good but seemed on the high end. Would and plan to return for a happy hour or Tuesday night 4 course tasting menu event. Service was attentive. A good find during restaurant week.

Outstanding food and exceptional wine list. Half-price wine night on Sunday is a great value.

The food is wonderful at Epulo Bistro. Seattle Restaurant week was going on so it was a little busier than normal here, and bit louder also. The service was fast, and we were warned that the kitchen would be a little slower than normal, and that was correct.

Cozy spot and the look of the food is beautiful. But the flavors were ordinary. Good drinks. It seemed to have so much promise and we hoped this would be our new spot. But we'll keep looking.

We have been customer's for many years. The staff is great and food is always top notch. Not the cheapest place in town but they couldn't do what they do any cheaper. We have been to places that charge more and don't come close to being as good.

Been here a few times now...food is consistently good...spiced well with menu offering a variety of plate sizes to allow for sharing or individuals. Service has been friendly and attentive. Open space floor plan so noise is expected especially as tables are fairly close to each other. It has been quite busy regardless of time or day I have been there.

Great restaurant in downtown Edmonds! The food is delicious, and the drinks are well made. There's also a nice wine list. We like sitting in the bar, but the dining room is nice for larger parties. We've been here many times, and it never disappoints.

We brought our friends here because we so enjoyed our visits here in the past. The pork chop was delicious and wonderfully prepared with the beans and greens in a tasty sauce. The green salad was so tasty with pears, nuts and a great vinaigrette dressing. My friend enjoyed the kale salad with pistachio nuts.

Perfect place for a celebration or special occasion. The place is bustling but you don't feel rushed. The server was incredibly helpful easily suggesting items without dairy for me (or offering substitutions). The timing of the courses was spot on. Fun cocktails and mocktails. The food was delicious.

We chose this restaurant as a good place for a second "date". We had a table in the back and it could not have been better. Out server was fantastic and the food was excellent. "Meatballs" would seem to be mundane - but their Wagyu Meatballs are outstanding and not mundane in any way. We shall return.

Service very slow (took more than 40 min. for our appetizers to come and then another 40 min at least for our entres) and the food, when it finally arrived, was mediocre at best. And it was way too loud - could hardly hold a conversation. Very disappointed as I was looking forward to a nice meal with friends at a neighborhood restaurant.

Always a favorite destination, our Friday evening visit was as good as ever. The food was excellent (duck, tomahawk steak, pork) and the service friendly if a bit distracted; my brussels sprouts appetizer was served several minutes after my companions' salads, for example. Fridays are usually busy and they may have been a little understaffed, but we had trouble getting our server's attention several times. To her credit she didn't get flustered and attended to our needs well once we caught her eye. Still great value and a fun place for a celebratory meal.

We always enjoy the food and the wine was excellent (bottle of the Epulo Cabernet Sauvignon.) The only thing that keeps us away is the constant noise level which we don’t enjoy. Otherwise it’s a wonderful neighborhood restaurant.

It’s one of our neighborhood favorites. Warm and inviting atmosphere. Always dependable for high quality, unique food in the bar, anddining area. Never pretentious but warm and friendly staff and most accommodating to special needs or requests. We celebrated Valentines dinner there this year and it was very decorated very elegantly romantic. The menu had a prix fixe side and, unlike most restaurants on special days, offered their regular one for lighter eaters. That is the most patron friendly ever! Just a wonderful first class restaurant in every respect.
