Food is always great! Acoustics bad and service lackadaisical.
Great food and service
Wonderful and fun cocktails. The duck and short ribs were excellent. Very noisy...
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.
We had lamb chops and braised short ribs. Always great.
We were celebrating our son's birthday and our server was very attentive and gracious during our dinner. Food was delicious.
Absolutely I would recommend Epulo! This restaurant is one of my very favorites. The food is always amazing and the staff is great.
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.
Amazing experience each time. Staff is incredible!
Service was nice and food. Was a bit loud! Menu could be updated more. I recommend this place and go back..
So happy we found such a charming restaurant outside the city. We will be back many times.
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.
The service staff was fantastic & accommodated food allergies with no complaints!!! Entrees were delicious & the bar manager is a well versed whisky connoisseur. Will definitely be returning and highly recommend!!!
Fantastic cocktails, great small plates for sharing
Epulo is a most favorite dinner place in Edmonds. Love Love Love
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.
I’ve been to Epulo Bistro several times. It’s a great “date night” restaurant. The food is excellent! We had beet risotto with seared scallops, it was unique and incredible. So good!
Great wait staff and great food. Would recommend the happy hour for a drink and lite food. Dinner has a great menu fro small dishes to a full meal.
We love coming here for the fabulous, interesting menu every Valentines Day. The menu is prepared with care and the small restaurant bustles with quiet energy.
We love this place
Our first visit was Valentines Day. Fantastic experience, food was delicious, service was impeccable. Will return again. Highly recommended.
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.
The food, service, and ambience were all fantastic. The services provided by the professional management and staff are the main reasons that we keep coming back. The old world elegance is a rare thing, and we value their focus to make sure that everything about the dining experience is excellent. I highly recomend this restaurant.
Great suggestions from the server, food was prompt and she was able to accommodate my dairy free request.
Our section was extremely crowded which made it a bit less relaxing than usual.
Epulo does not disappoint! The food, the service, the wine, and the atmosphere are all fabulous. I highly recommend it!
The food is amazing! If they are really busy, you may have to wait a while but it's worth it.
As always, had a great meal and great service.
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.
Consistently fantastic! Great food and even better service.
Mostly good, but sit away from the windows during the winter- very drafty, and the cold impacted the experience. I would’ve asked to be reseated, but it appeared to be the only option. Food was very good.
The food was excellent and the service was great. The only drawback was the noise level. Many people jammed into a small space. However, it was a Friday night in downtown Edmonds. We will definitely go back!
Great birthday dinner! Than you!
In my experience, this place is always good. My only complaint is, when it's a busy night, it's really noisy. But the food is fantastic and a great value.
Great atmosphere great service great food first time there loved it!
We love Epulo for everything from a casual lunch to dinner and wine out with family and friends. This is truly a neighborhood foodies gem. The octopus, brussel sprouts (with bacon) and our favorite dinner, the beef shortrib was FABULOUS!
Have eaten at Epulo several times and alway leave saying that it's way too loud in the restaurant. It certainly takes away from the experience.
Interesting, very well-prepared food options. For example, there are "normal" pasta and pizza offerings and also those with unusual toppings (but not far-out or contrived). Above all, their roasted cauliflower appetizer elevates that dish that goes way beyond any other treatment I've had or made myself. There is great attention to detail in everything we tried (the pork chop dinner, a pasta dish), which extends to the side dishes. As for dessert, the banana pudding was also perfection. The one downside to the restaurant ... which for some, is actually a plus .... is that it is ear-splittingly noisy when crowded. Hence I gave it a "3" for ambience and hope that my return visit will not be on a weekend. But some may find it "energetic" rather than conversation-busting.:)
