Lovely outdoor dining experience. Food was very good, and a good value. Nice to have another brunch option. I would be nice to have had some fresh fruit on the plate, or perhaps a cinnamon roll like the other places.

Birthday for hubby. We were seated quickly and at a nice table outdoors. Our waitstaff was outstanding. She went along with hubbys silly jokes and served us easily and with too much fuss the whole time being gracious and friendly. We are returning soon. And the good and drink was excellent!!

We dined for Mother’s Day at 2.30pm so we were in between brunch and dinner. But they had a very extensive happy hour menu available that was delicious! Sarah was our server and super patient and sweet with my 6 year old son and his never ending knock knock jokes. Lol

Our table was ready right at our reservations time, we had a great booth, service was perfect and the food was delicious and a great value for the price!

The restaurant itself is lovely! Plenty of outdoor seating. Dog Friendly on the patio. The ambience is perfect for date night, a special event or a girls night out. The menu on mothers day was pretty small in my opinion. They only give you an hour and a half from the start of the reservation time and YES they time you. An hour and a half might sound like plenty of time but when you have not dined out with your loved ones in a while that 90 minutes goes by so fast; especially when the service is slow. We didn't even have time to order desert on mothers day. Was just a bummer to be rushed... and what is the point in ordering bottomless mimosas when you are being timed? ... Inside or outside tables are spaced well apart and well ventilated. Heaters make it a comfortable outdoor dining experience.

The best brunch in Edmonds! Anything from brioche French toast, avocado toast, or Eggs Benedict on mouthwatering slabs of prosciutto; even a mimosa flight that includes half-size mimosas made with orange juice, then pineapple juice, then grapefruit juice, then absinthe. Spacious contemporary venue, with a lovely deck covered with part tent/part umbrellas and numerous space heaters.

Epulo has been an Edmonds favorite for over a decade, but has risen to new heights at their waterfront location. You haven't visited all the top spots in Edmonds until you've also visited Epulo.

We were greeted and seated right away, although we had arrived a bit early to meet our friends. Servers came to pour water immediately; our waiter took our wine orders so we could enjoy our wait. She was prompt with taking our dinner orders and attentive during the meal. It was a bit noisy as all the tables were filled, but they were also safely distanced. The food was excellent. It was a very pleasant evening. Though it has moved to a different location, Epulo has maintained its fine quality.

I love the new Epulo location. They are doing a great job with covid and their bloody mary's are TDF. Server was very attentive without being intrusive. Great experience. We will be back.

If I could have, I would’ve given it 3 1/2 stars. I love Epulo. This was not my best visit. We went for Seattle Restaurant Week. Disappointed in this year’s menu. I missed their wonderful short ribs. It didn’t help that the chicken was just average. Appetizer and dessert were both great. They need a better technique for telling guests they need the table. I know it’s difficult in these Covid times but the person who addressed us was not polished in her delivery. Having said that I would still go back and everybody has a bad day. I still think it’s a great restaurant with great service overall.

We were shown to a table between two open sliding doors which exposed us to the cold open patio area..I had worn a nice outfit for the occasion but had to wear my coat all the time.
My pasta was ok but my partners ribs were dry..he was too polite to say anything.

Superb execution of favorites both new and old, in a spacious contemporary waterfront venue. Good-humored servers, interesting drinks. Original touches without going too avant garde — for example, halibut accompanied by a roasted black grape reduction. This blend of sophistication and ease demands repeat visits.

Our prime rib was hard to cut and had to saw through it. It was not the cut of prime rib we expected and very chewy. I would not recommend it to a friend but have always enjoyed our previous dinners and would recommend the restaurant with this caveat.

We were a party of 6 there on Sunday midday. Very nice brunch type menu including pizza options. A lovely covered outdoor space as well as bright and airy inside seating.
We have been to Epulo a few times and the service and food is consistently very good with fair prices.
I highly recommend.

Stopped in for brunch on a Saturday. Plenary of indoor and outdoor seating. COVID precautions in place. Food and drinks were delicious! Try the Bloody Mary or the bottomless mimosas. We had a large group split between two tables and ordered a variety of breakfast and lunch plates. Good portions for the price too.

Went for late lunch. The service was great and food was delicious.
The patio was an odd combo of windy but under the plastic shelter bright and hot.. oh well that’s nature! Next time I’ll wear a hat and less clothing or sit inside! The wine list and menu at Epulo are always spot on.

Thought food was mediocre at best; have had many meals at Epulo at old location - never disappointed. Was very disappointed this time. Thought food quality lacked, menu lacked, food was served tepid, almost cold. Sorry - and it’s expensive for this kind of experience. Server was great!
