We had a fantastic dinner at Restaurant Epik. The staff was attentive and helpful. The food was delicious and the atmosphere felt warm and comfortable. We would not hesitate to visit again.

Lovely evening. Waiter was very kind and personable. Bartender Justin made amazing drinks - a true professional yet very approachable.
We ate in the bar area and it was more like a dinner party at a friends house - very pleasant

Tres beau decor et emplacement .
Service mediocre a cause de -
1. En demandant du pain au debut de notre soiree (on avait très faim) le serveur nous a avisé que le pain sera servi seulement avec le repas principale et de ne pas demander un deuxième panier de pain car on ne l'aurait pas !
2. Le dessert - nous avons commandé 2 tiramisu .Le serveur est arrivé avec le premier et en voyant la portion , nous avons decidé de canceller le deuxième . Malgré ca , le serveur est revenu avec la deuxieme portion en insistant qu'on la prenne . Ordinaire...... il a fallu insister longtemps avant qu'il reprenne le deuxieme tiramisu.

Apart de ca - bouffe médiocre , on s'attendait mieux pour Epik , mais bon choix de vins et cocktails et les lieux sont très beau.

Je ne crois pas retourner au moins un changement dans la qualité de service.

Oh man! This was probably the best experience that I've had at a restaurant in a long time.
Right on arrival we were greeted by the incredibly enthusiastic host. What a character!
The cocktails were incredible and very wel-balanced. The food was spectacular (highly recommend the octopus and lamb!) and the wine list was super interesting (all Italian) and very reasonably priced. The service was incredible (shout out to my man Charles!) and the whole staff worked really well together to make us feel like we were part of the family.

10/10 would DEFINITELY recommend!

Awful food at an expensive price. Definitely a tourist trap.
I had the noqui which were hard and became harder by the minute! Did not taste like butternut squash nor did they have the orange color.
My husband’s meat dish came out too quick, definitely precooked fast food that only requires heating.
We were seated by the window which felt like everyone outside, that stopped to read the menu on the wall, was dining with us. The table next to us was so close that my husband hit their table leaving; felt like a party of 4 instead of a party of 2.
The waitors were rude with their small talk. One said “must have been good since you finished it”....leave that comment for a child, not adults.

Very good serving sizes, good value. House wine had a weird, yet refreshing taste. I do not recommend sitting outside as it gets very loud with the parties and what-not going on + the bugs around the Old Port. No need to have a different waiter/bus boy serve us for everything we order/receive. Overall, service was very good, waiter was attentive and polite.

What a great experience! From the food, the wine and the service, our evening at Epik was fantastic. We started with the delicious calamari fritti, adding the cheese and prosciutto plate. Just the right amount of food and all very tasty. Our entrees ranged from Involtini di Vitello to a simple Buccatini Marinara. The Sage and Butter Raviolis were magical. The wine list was great - well priced with a nice selection. Service was awesome. Charles was friendly, engaging, attentive and professional without being stuffy. He made our evening such a pleasure. Overall - a perfect meal!! Bravo!

The food was a bit uneven. The grilled octopus one of their staple dishes was surprising not fresh and not very tasty. But, the Gnocchi Bolognese was excellent.

À mon avis c'est un très bon restaurant. Ça fait peut-être 3 ou 4 fois que j'y vais. C'était une belle expérience à chaque fois. La truite saumonée était excellente. Le pain plat qu'on nous sert avec notre repas est tout à fait divin.

Je ne recommande pas ce restaurant. Notre serveur n’a presque pas été présent pendant la soirée. Au début nous n’étions pas prêts à commander donc nous lui demandons de revenir dans un instant... 20-30 minutes plus tard nous n’avions toujours pas pu commander l’entrée. Aucun contact visuel avec le serveur durant tout ce temps. La table à côté de nous se faisait traiter aux petits oignons, et nous presque un service inexistant. J’avais choisi ce restaurant pour fêter mon 25e anniversaire, mais je n’y retournerai plus.

Pour la nourriture, ce n’étais un bon rapport qualité-prix. Mon père est habitué de manger de l’agneau dans différents restaurant et le votre n’étais pas à la hauteur du prix (beaucoup trop cuit, même s’il a demander la même cuisson depuis toujours).

Entrées bonnes mais sans wow.
Le plat principal, pâtes aux fruits de mer est délicieux, le serveur nous a offert de remplacer la sauce tomate par une sauve au vin choix judicieux.
Le service est très attentionné, bravo.

We really enjoyed our meal, the fresh bread and calamari to start followed by the chicken dinner for my daughter and the shrimp dinner for me. Both were quite tasty. The servers were very attentive, keeping our water glasses full, making great drinks and coming by frequently to make sure everything was ok or if we needed anything else.

I hate when restaurant servers "dump and run" after they give you your main meal, you don't hear from them until you have to flag them down. We have never had that issue with this place.

Sadly we were too full for dessert so we didn't try one, next time we'll pace ourselves and leave room for a dessert. Thanks again for a delicious meal and a wonderful dining experience!

A really mixed review related to food - 2 out of 4 enjoyed borderline loved it (seafood pasta + rack of lamb). The other 2 not impressed at all - veal involti a solid “meh” sort of “wedding dish” + sirloin really the wrong cut of meat rough and bland. Tiramisu was really good, as was the service and pleasant interior. Hope my review helps improving offer for one of the better places in Old Montreal.
