Great staff. Salad was excellent, main course and dessert so-so. Our table d’hôte menu was good value, mainly because we had a discount from the local theatre. So I rated the value OK, because if I had to pay full price, I would have been less impressed.
Lots of interesythings on the menu, so I would go again to explore it further.

I was disappointed in the quality of the cavatelli. I did not enjoy the main course but the appetizer and dessert were good.

Our party of six enjoyed a wonderful dining experience on Saturday night. We were treated with excellent service and delicious food: lasagna was really flavorful, specials were good, although not earth shattering, and the wine selection very good. Habitant pea soup was an unexpected delight. Desserts were yummy and pretty. Overall the service was what stood out - food was a little disappointing. Veal overcooked, boar special strangely flavored. But, would try again! Fun location and very comfortable table for six.

Epik was recommended to us by friends and we are so glad. Our lovely experience started the moment we crossed the threshold and continued thru a fabulous dinner (the primi of ravioli in sage butter was delicious, the rack of lamb was perfect and the chocolate mousse - that we shared - was the real thing). Every service 'touch' was so jovial and super detailed. I was in the enviable position of watching the kitchen and am amazed at the quality of food that is produced from that very efficient kitchen. I can't imagine another visit to Montreal without an evening at Epik.

My wife and I dined here while we were visting to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. The restaurant and bar were well decorated and had a nice atmosphere. Our server Charles was excellent and very friendly. He provided recommendations for wine and dinner based on our preferences. Everything that was served was delicious. I would recommend this restuarant highly.

We dined at the Epik on Saturday the 15th and again on Wednesday the 26th. They have a small bar in front that proved a comfortable spot to enjoy a "Vesper" Martini (made to Ian Fleming's recipe).

The staff is friendly, accommodating, and they have a good sense of humor. On to the food. Arancini and prosciutto formaggio were very tasty. Rack of lamb was excellent. Striped bass and the butternut squash gnocchi were both very good. The shrimp risotto was super.

We highly recommend Epik but be sure to make a reservation.

Ate in the lobby and entrance of Hotel Épik. In my reservation I requested a std. table and yet received a high top literally inside the door where people hotel guests arrived and the table was next to the check in desk. High top seating is uncomfortable for my husband. However, service was great and food was delicious. We felt like we were eating in an aquarium and the downpour outside supported the ambience.

Bons plats, intéressante table d'hôte, le prix en vaut la peine ; on ajoute 10$ au prix plat principal choisi et on vous offre une entrée & un dessert. Le service était excellent, François s'est super bien occupé de nous. L'atmosphère était vraiment agréable & chaleureuse.

My daughter and I visited this restaurant recently on a weekend trip to Montreal. We were impressed with the atmosphere, the service and the food. We thoroughly enjoyed the butternut squash gnocchi. Everything we ate was flavorful and the presentation was exceptional. As well, the wait staff was highly attentive and interested in ensuring a great experience for their guests. I would highly recommend.

Je cherchais un restaurant dans le vieux Montréal pour une occasion spéciale. J'avais peur de tomber sur quelque chose de touristique. J'ai été agréablement surprise par le restaurant Epik : bonne nourriture, des assiettes copieuses (presque trop) et un personnel très sympathique. JEevous le recommande sans hésiter.
