The food is outstanding; it is perfect in all its detail, i.e. side dishes, salads, etc. as well as main dishes. The waitperson was extremely helpful. It is well set up for socially-distanced eating. The one downside is that the doors to the patio were open (there were patio diners) which resulted in the tables closest to the doors being too cold for comfortable dining - we rejected such a table, and saw others do the same. Later in the evening, though, these doors were closed down to a slight opening, so it became more comfortable.

I will definitely be back. Interior remodel is a great improvement. Waitperson Jane was delightful. My late husband and I cooked in a similar style. Now I have someone to cook for me when I need a little comfort.

We were concerned about the social distancing. For a while, two groups of friends stook talking too close for comfort near our table. Also, we had thought about eating outside but glad we didn't; when we left, it looked like there was no social distancing; full tables were near each other.

Fantastic three hour dinner - did not feel rushed by server. My wife had the short ribs which we excellent. I had the ribeye - which was also cooked perfectly. We enjoyed the server Michelle who was most gracious and grateful we were dining with her. We shared a dessert which had ample but not overly huge portions. The wine recommendation of a Mark Ryan cab blend was also spot on!

Had a wonderful dinner with my friend. They were very accommodating to getting us a table outside for our reservation. This is the third time I’ve been to the new location and I absolutely love it! This visit they had just updated to a fall menu. We always have the burrata and once again did not disappoint. Drinks were great, mains were superb and service was fantastic! Will definitely be back.

Very new inside and outside. Noise level is high. Very difficult to get one of booths which are quieter. Seem to be reserved for special quests only!! Frustrating. Food does not vary too much. Lots of use of truffle oil which I am not fond of....so that was bit discouraging. Very active vive inside. Probably good for bigger groups but not so great for a couple or foursome....

We were there for happy hour. Our server was extremely attentive in the good kind of way. Happy Hour here is reasonable. Dinner and Drinks are expensive here and could be great, or mediocre in quality.

Celebrated my wife’s birthday at Epulo, we really enjoyed it. It was our 1st time dining there since they moved to the new location. Outdoor seating was great, and the service was terrific. Food, as always, was outstanding. We’ll definitely be back soon.

I didn't love my dish but my friend regularly orders it and does love it and she like hers a lot. Also we went a 2pm on Sunday and because website did not indicate was unaware that lunch menu was not available on Sunday which was a disappointment.

Great time for Happy Hour/Dinner on the Patio with both Fire table and Patio heaters so we could enjoy being outside on a cool, foggy day. Great menu choices. . .five of us selected a variety of items off both the Happy Hour and dinner menus and enjoyed them all. The Happy Hour drinks and Wine/Drinks choices are extensive. Appreciated the service, too. We'll be back!

We were staying at the marina, so the new location was an easy walk. The restaurant is beautiful inside, the outdoor patio looked spectacular as well. It didn’t take too long for our waitperson to take initial drink order, then took food order at time drinks arrived. That was the last time we saw our server until we had been finished eating for several minutes. Our food was delivered by a different person that was clearly in a rush. My wife would have like catchup for her fries, and I was really hoping to get a second glass of wine to go with my filet. We weren’t able to get either, as nobody came near our table until we’ll after we were finished. I did manage to get a second wine when my wife ordered desert. Overall, the restaurant is really nice and the food really good. Hopefully next time we’ll get better service too.

Our first dinner out since the pandemic, and overall a very positive experience! The space is beautiful, and even the indoor seating feels very airy. My only complaint is that we had a 545 reservation that the restaurant pushed later, then by the time we were seated and put in drink order it was 6:05 and the waitress gave us a hard time about ordering off the happy hour menu. But the atmosphere and food were great, we will definitely come back.

We had a great experience at this beautifully renovated space —-a new home for Epulo! The service was as warm and professional as usual. The drinks at HH were thoughtfully prepared and a great value.
We hope they bring back their lamb chops for the fall!

We had an inside table next to the big open doors and it was so pleasant as the evening was warm. Service great.
Much larger space than the previous location which allows for more social distancing during this unusual time.

So you moved the restaurant, didn't you. I was sooo attached to the old place, that I was concerned about it. I resisted going to the new place, as I was sure it wouldn't be my happy place any more. I had had a very frustrating experience in the restaurant space you took over which didn't help my attitude.

Would it be the same? Would my old favorites be on the menu? Could I rely on you still as my go-to place for casual dinners, a nice place to take out of town guests or find a spot in the corner when my wife demanded more romance in her life?

I can tell you that it is still all these things. The majority of my favorite menu items are still there (I'm a sucker for tradition) and some new stand outs. I would like to mention that the petit lamb chops where missing - perhaps they will come back in the fall. I am now a vegetarian, so why do I care really...

The food falls under the category of 'do a few things, and do them really well' and let me say that the restaurant does that. All four of my party were delighted with everything that was ordered. The cocktails we had as an appetizer certainly hit the spot and filled the table with a warm glow as the booze worked it's magic. The new space is nicely arranged to conform with the current C19 requirements and the staff seems very keen to keep the appearance of safe operations. I left to visit the loo and was polity asked to put on my face mask if i was moving about. I liked that. I peeked into the kitchen and all the staff were masked up. A task I couldn't imagine in the heat of a kitchen.

This is the second time we have been to the new location, its great! ...and the food continues meet the taste buds. The burger is on my top 5 list for sure; my wife even agrees with my statement which is saying something. Kids had a good menu to pick from and the happy hour is worth the trip. Our server was fantastic and understood the timeline kiddos are on. Thank you

Dining on the patio is lovely, but once the weather turns, the ambience inside will be enjoyable, as well. Entrees have been good so far (on two visits), but so far some of the Happy Hour "bites" have been my favorites. Don't miss the fried Beecher's cheese curds with a divine house-made marinara sauce! I'm also a big fan of the truffle fries, which need no accompaniment, but which come with one of the best garlic aiolis that I've ever tasted. Finally, the selection of cocktails is varied, interesting, and - so far- tasty! The "Bathtub Gin" is fun, with a miniature rubber ducky floating in it. And the Amalfi is an unusual, fun cocktail to experience, as well. We will definitely be back, with yet another set of friends to introduce to Epulo.

We ate outside as indoor seating looked a little too close for covid.

Outdoor seating was wonderful.

A great place for a romantic date evening. Definitely worth returning to.

Cocktails were excellent too!
