We love Epulo!! We dine here all the time and are NEVER disappointed!! The best truffle popcorn in town!
Always a first class experience.
The food, ambience and service is first class. We love this restaurant. It is one of our all time favorites.
Another delicious meal at this comfortable downtown Edmonds restaurant. Great window seat watching the world walk by while enjoying really good food, creative cocktails and excellent service.
Very pleasant dinner—great food and gracious service.
Reservations are mandatory; the customer base is very loyal. For good reason -- the food is fantastic. Always crowded, but never a disappointment.
Always great food and service!! You must try the cauliflower appetizer and the prosciutto and arugula pizza...delicious!!
Our waiter was very attentive and cheerful. Forrest has always been very professional. We enjoy the entire staff!
$150 was way too much for the food received. Lamb chops so tough you could hardly cut it off the bone. Short ribs OK, but not great, grandma made better and fed the entire family for what these cost. Best item served was the Brussels sprouts - too bad the appetizer out-shined the main course!
Epulo is always amazing!
We normally go to Epulo’s fabulous happy hour but we were hosting an out of town family member and opted for the full dining experience. It was wonderful! Service was exceptional and our food was excellent. Highly recommend the brussel sprouts small plate, pork osso buco and braised short ribs. We had an incredible Pinot as well.
Very attentive staff, amazing food. Kids loved it. Wife in heaven.
The food was amazingly delicious. The only problem was you couldn’t have any type of conversation. It was also difficult to order your food because the table behind you was yelling so loudly the server had issues hearing.
We've eaten here many times and we love the food, the employees, the ambiance, it's the best place in the north end.
Great restaurant. One of our favorites. Easy to get too, no fighting "city" traffic. Food and service is always fantastic.
We’ve been here before, but this night was a bit different. A dinner date with good friends we haven’t seen in a while. I mentioned we were in no rush, wanting to have a nice leisurely dinner. Our waitress was pushy and asked us several times if we were ready to order. I mentioned after the second time we’d let her know. She clearly wanted to turn our table over quickly. She brought a drink with a large crack in it. This was to noticeable to miss and she was seemed “annoyed” when we brought this to her attention. Appetizers, salads, entrees, desserts, and drinks - our tab was nearly $400. One of our party was still eating his entree when she was forcing dessert on us.
The food was decent, with the exception of the room temperature gf/df lemon coconut cream dessert. Unfortunately we will not be returning anytime soon as good service is as important as what is being served.
Great food but a bit loud
Food and service outstanding as usual
A little loud. Delightful waitress. Busy place. Good food and special winter cosmopolitan a winner.
Service and food were outstanding. The restaurant was very busy. We always enjoy our experience at Epulo.
Our server was very attentive and friendly. The food is fantastic. Really good quality and delicious yet not overly pretentious. It’s honestly one of my favorite restaurants of all time.
Overall Epulo Bistro provided a warm atmosphere and good food, but my guest did not feel her food was worth the amount that was paid for it. Personally, I thought my food was good, but I wasn't blown away. Having said this, I would still go back and maybe just try something else.
Our waitress Heather was amazing! Actually, everytime we go there, the staff is kind and has the best customer service. The food was delicious. We are so glad we live in Edmonds and have this restaurant as our neighbors. :) has
The food was excellent, food and beverage service was very attentive. The lounge is on the noisy side, and table seating is cramped.
Wow. Our meal was fantastic. My steak was cooked exactly how I like it...nice crust on the outside and rare on the inside...yum.
Prices were too high for what was provided and the presentation was lacking. Staff was efficient and responsive. Food taste was okay.
We had a reservation asked for a booth. Was told all 7 were reserved for 3 or more. So no! So then wanted to stick is in the corner. Again requested a larger table. She said she would make an exception. When we left 3 of the 7 booths never got used. Ridiculous. They didn’t even have them reserved. Policy I guess
Won’t go back
Wonderful evening at Epulo celebrating a couple of birthdays. Our server was sweet and attentive. I had an injury requiring eating (one and) left handed, and she had the shells removed by the kitchen from my delicious pasta with clams. The sides here are amazing, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, delish! Save some room for desserts, Theo's truffle cake rich and decadent.
Fun and tasty spot!
Everything was lovely! We have visited before and always had a great experience. Only one factor contributed to the 4 star rating instead of five - the Pork Osso Bucco was an unusually small serving?
It was a bit disappointing that our out-of-town guest of honor ordered this dish.
We will return, however!
They don't have many good options for vegetarians, and we had to look up lots of Italian words like capicola to avoid the dishes containing meat. They need to code dishes with a V for vegetarian. Also, we sat at a little table squeezed in next to the entrance, and my husband's chair was largely sticking out in the entrance way. Not very relaxing.
Our waiter Forest was very attentive and did the little things that make it work for us
Epulo is always a treat. Friendly, engaging, professional staff. Food typically excellent.
Excellent food, excellent service. There's really nothing we didn't enjoy about our experience. Definitely recommend them.
The pasta dish with pasta pockets made in-house, stuffed with mushrooms, was excellent and loaded with foresty, winterly flavors. The consistency of the pasta was perfect. A dish with store-bought pasta was quite good and still better than what one gets in many other venues. A supposedly shareable appetizer was a joke, because what one shared was mostly bland toast. The single, small ball of burrata on that plate had been sitting under the heat lamp or had otherwise been traumatized, because it had the texture of a dead toad. Espresso was very good.
Service was fast and friendly, occasionally a bit distracted, but only mildly so.
On a Saturday night, it was extremely busy here and some people got very loud.
Not good: This place packs them in very, very closely, including a couple of tables in the tight corridor on the way to the restrooms. I'd be ashamed to seat people there. Make a reservation, come on a weekday, or else be prepared to embrace your fellow humans.
We love Epulo! Always pair first pick in Edmonds. Great staff, food and ambience.
Food was fabulous - service was awesome ! Love this place
Epulo is a great go to on any night of the week. Have always had consistently good food and service. Appreciate that we were able to make a rather last minute reservation on a busy friday night. Walked right in to our table... YAY!
Our server was awesome and the food was excellent!
