We enjoyed Epulo in its old location but even more so now in their new location. The food is excellent and the service is friendly. We love the new outdoor patio!

Went on a Monday for prime rib. They said it would be 7oz, but it was at least 12, and cooked to perfection. The deck is really pleasant and partially covered to protect from weather.

The restaraunt is a fun local place with really delicious food. Although given the ambience and location, the food is drinks are way overpriced. Your probably better off going to a fancy downtown Seattle restaurant or a different fancy restaraunt in Edmonds that is way cheaper.

Good as usual, food, service and atmosphere! Debbie, our server, has become an Epulo friend, and her attention to us is so welcoming! Midweek calm in the restaurant was so enjoyable! Epulo is still the best place to dine in Edmonds!!

Well the second time I requested a booth and didn't get one and it sat empty for quite awhile. I made reservations a week ahead. The previous time we were promised a firepit table for 4 on my sons birthday and didnt get that either. Basically the man manager came over and was rude to me and my sister. Your restarant is not that great!!! prices are high, the server was good and polite, if it hadn't been for her I would have walked out. There are plenty of good places to eat in edmonds that are not greedy.

Our waitress was absolutely lovely and made a great brunch even better! There was some noise due to construction near the patio but nothing too bad. Looking forward to our next visit.

Bar drinks were watery. Wine was not impressive. The appetizer menu was very limited. Therefore our experience at Epulo got off to a bad start. The chef is quite good and the entree was delicious with nice sized portions. Prices, especially for the bar are not justified.

Happy Hour cuisine & libations = great!
Like being able to reserve a table for HH.
Wonderful friendly service.
Only downside - HH chard house wine cost $6/glass. Ordered one more when HH prices ended - knew it would cost more and assumed it would also be house chard but it wasn’t and cost $14!! Server should ask what kind is desired for after HH...

We had reservations and when we got there, requested to sit inside. We were told there weren’t any inside tables available but there were at least 3 empty tables when we got there. We were seated outside on their deck. The deck is nice but a pretty stiff breeze was blowing that evening so even with the patio heaters running, we were cold. Our friends had never been to Epulo before to this new location and really enjoyed it. I just wish we could have been seated inside and that seating options would be something offered on this app. Next time we will make the reservation here and then follow up with a phone call to see if we can request a seating preference.

The food was fresh and the service was excellent. The lemon fish and braised beef and potatoes dishes were excellent. They had an excellent big wine selection! It was comfortable seating outside on the patio! I recommended this restaurant.

Wonderful sevice. Steak was a bit overcooked instead of medium rare, my husband asked for a new one on my behalf. They were gracious and picked up my dessert due to the delay. The drinks were amazing, appetizers awesome. We try to get here at least every couple of months!

Highly recommend !

I really wanted to love the new version of Epulo since it moved closer to the waterfront. However, I think they need to work out a few kinks still. Service was painfully slow even though the restaurant is at 50% capacity. What will happen when the restrictions are lifted? The restaurant feels pretty much like it did as 190 Sunset - except it’s smaller and they moved the location of the front door. Now to dinner, my grapefruit martini was good. The seasonal summer salad was nice. The halibut was pretty, but could have used a little more flavor and was slightly overcooked. I’m not sure the seasonal presentation is the best. My son devoured the rib-eye and my mom enjoyed her pork tenderloin. Overall, the food was pretty good. It was the service and wait times that made the evening less enjoyable than it could have been. We skipped dessert because we didn’t want to wait another hour!
