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.

It was so noisy my friend and I had a hard time hearing each other. It finally started to clear out and quiet down about 7. Great service. I didn't care for what I ordered and they insisted I be satisfied and brought a substitute dish. salad was interesting and very small for the price. Entrée just ordinary for the price. Very disappointed. Companion loved her dinner.

Epulo has excellent food and excellent service and good value for price. It is a very attractive small restaurant. The only negative is that it is VERY noisy; tables close together and low ceilings and frankly we had to lean way in and almost shout to hear one another. If you don't want to converse during dinner, I would highly recommend, but especially if you have either older people who are hearing challenged at all, or a large partly where you would like to speak with all at the table, do not go here.
