This was our second time back and it was just as good as the first. The French Onion soup was perfect, probably one of the best I ever had. The filet mignon tacos were flavorful and cooked perfectly. My husband enjoyed his lambchops and the coq au vin was delicious. The service was excellent including prompt water refills.

The crispy duck with orange sauce was fantastic. The steak tartar appetizer was a large portion and very much in the French style with Dijon. Should probably be shared. Lovely experience

Service was impeccable. Loved everything we had. Went for a friends birthday and we were too full for dessert , but the waiter came over with a complimentary crime brûlée with a candle and sang happy birthday. It was a very nice touch. We were never rushed and everything course came out perfectly timed.

Price Fixe was spot on. From beet Salad to scallop with mash and spinach to Beef Bourgouine. Very Happy with my choices. Service was great. Suprised they were not busy both times we visited.

Service was friendly and attentive without the hover, which allowed for conversation before ordering. The food was very good from the onion soup, escargot, mussels, calamari to the sole meunière and hanger steak. My only issue, and minor to most people, was that the crème Brûlée top was not warm. It doesn’t take a lot of time and it makes a measurable difference! A positive experience!!

It was restaurant week and crowded. Seemed there was only one waiter for the entire restaurant so service was slower than expected. May try try it again.

Updated decor and furnishings give the restaurant a comfortable and inviting feel. The bus boy and waiter were extremely warm, efficient and attentive. The owner is accommodating and gracious and works hard to please his customers. The food was delicious - just the right size Caesar salad, calamari perfectly cooked and presented on a special board, and a large piece of lemon sole nicely prepared. The restaurant and restrooms are clean. They offer a happy hour at the bar until 6pm. I recommend trying Epicure because it may become your new favorite!

We ate at Epicure during LI restaurant week and will definitely go back. The food and service was excellent. Although it was an upcharge I had the French Onion Soup and my husband had the Shrimp Bisque. Both were delicious and served very hot. The Filet Mignon tacos were very tender and flavorful. My husband had the duck l'orange which was cooked perfectly...the skin served crispy and the duck tender. I had mussels in a garlic and white wine broth. Again, cooked perfectly...nice and garlicky. Although we were full, we shared a cinnamon gelato which tasted like red hots (in a good way). Can't wait to go back and try their regular menu.

The waiter/bartender/maitre d' did his best to fulfill all three roles. We expect that there was a staff shortage since one person needed to fill all three roles on a Saturday evening.

We arrived right before it got a little busy and were seated right at the time of our reservation. The staff was friendly and attentive, the food and drinks were great and our waiter was phenomenal. He was friendly and attentive despite being responsible for the bar and what seemed like the whole restaurant. We will definitely be coming back.

I was SO disappointed. I had been going to Sage Bistro and the Epicure for years. It was consistently good and innovative!
I realize Covid has been a challenge, and now after a year and being fully vaccinated my husband and I were looking forward to returning to Epicure. Unfortunately, the menu bore no relation to the menu of the past or posted on their website.
The Cesar salad was ordinary. The onion soup really very good but lukewarm. The special veal chop was not special the sauce was thick and tasteless. The vegetables not at all good. My husband's hanger steak was OK!
I am really sad and hope the management will survive and get their mojo back. But I for one will not be going on the journey with them.

One of my favorite restaurants on Long Island. The food is always spot on and the service fantastic. I have eaten everything from their fish tacos, steak tartar, to rack of lamb and it is always made to perfection. A great little find in Bellmore!
