The food is just amazing! Farm to Table type of Cuisine. Something new and interesting all the time. Atmosphere is like spending the evening with a large family in their wonderful home. Absolutely do not leave Boise without trying Epi's.

My husband and I love going to Epi's. Chris and staff always make us feel so welcome, and the food is amazing. I think they have the best clam chowder in the valley.
