Great service. AWESOME food. We've eaten here many times and never disappointed! You can request family style and order several entrees to share. Which is great because then you don't have to choose just one. HIGHLY recommend!!!'

Epis is our favorite place to go. The food is incredible and the service is better. It's like going to your favorite aunts house for dinner. There calamari is the best I've ever had. My kids make a meal out of it alone. If you can get in don't hesitate. You won't leave unhappy.

Great food! Small dining area; not many tables. The owner thinks she is your aunt. Very friendly! She visits your table and talks with all the customers. They offer catering for your large group gathering or special event needs. Reservations recommended.

The owner came around to our table and visited with us explaining the history behind the restaurant and explained the food choices. I chose the lamb dish and my husband chose something chicken. His was delicious. Mine was a bit "Lamby". I didn't eat much of it. But the rest of the food was excellent. The place is tight quarters,... More

I love that we have a Basque influence in Idaho and Epi's is a great testimony to the richness it has brought to our communities. When we want an extraordinary place to take an out of town guest or for a special occasion, Epi's is the place! We enjoy the staff, the ambiance, and most importantly, the food! Most people... More

I've heard that they have great food. I've heard that they have nice service. But every time I've tried to book a meal, I get told that they're full. My girlfiend went once and she said it was nice, but as a vegan, she ended up chewing on lettuce for $15. After 5 times trying to book a seat with... More

This a local favorite and it is easy to see why. The service is wonderful and the food is memorable. Our friends have taken us here twice now and we love it. Lots of fish and several good soups. Classic Basque quisine.

Epi's is a quaint little place with a very friendly and helpful staff. There is a good section of food, but Epi's lamb dinners continue to fall very short of delicious for me.

We were a party of seven dining for a family get-together. We arrived at different times, but were always cheerfully greeted, welcomed and led to our reserved table. We each ordered different entrées; some ordered fish, some pasta and some typical Basque specialities. I ordered the Basque lamb stew. It was flavorful, not hotly spiced and delicious. Our waitress was... More

We now have a tradition of eating at Epi's just after Christmas! We relax and visit with our family and relish a sumptuous meal we didn't cook! This time the scallops were my choice and I have never had a better preparation. So rich and yum. Others had pork chops and ink fish, which was purportedly very rich also. I... More
