What can I say about Epi's. They have great food. But remember, even if you have great food, you can have an off night. The atmosphere is great and the servers very personable, makes you feel like your at home. Reservations are a must, and if it's a holiday, reservations need to be made several months in advance. Expect great... More

Epi's is the real deal when it comes to Basque food with out a doubt. The owner and employees are extremely friendly and really go out of their way to make you feel like a part of their family. I had never had Basque food before so basically I let the owner order from us. The meal was very good,... More

We spent one night in Boise and needed to find a restaurant at which to meet friends. We checked TripAdvisor and found Epi's with great reviews. They were correct. We were greeted as if old friends, the staff was excellent, knowledgeable and friendly and the food was delicious. They were able to adjust meals to accommodate our specific diets. We... More

Wow! WOW! What a gem Epi's is. They started off by greeting us like old friends even though this was our first visit. And it gets better. The food is absolutely amazing. Heck, I could have made a 5 star meal just out of the rice side dish (kind of like paella). Awesome culinary experience. And then as we left... More

Outstanding from the time the reservation was made until we walked out the door. This was a great evening of fine dinning. Food was excellent and service was premier. Thank you Chris for providing a great experience for our family. See you next year.

This is fine dining at its best, without the stuffiness of places with waiters in starched collars and an expectation to dress up. The experience at Epi's is more like going to your favorite aunt's home and having her dote on you. Reservations are always recommended and I called and left a message on their voice mail Saturday morning for... More

If you want the best customer service and to be treated like family this is the place. Food is time tested old family recipes. Can't beat the big experience in this small restaurant.

After reading several reviews that you have to book early for a table my husband and I decided to give it a try at 5 pm without reservations. Chris - Epi's granddaughter welcomed us and sat us at a table that had reservations at 6:30. Dinner was wonderful -staff were fabulous and friendly. Would recommend and make reservations!

Who would have thought this place has the best atmosphere, service and flavor in the Valley. Some friends invited us for a night out. I have heard of Epi's 100s of time and never went. Glad we had the opportunity to finally visit. Won't be the last time that's for sure.

When I moved to the area, Epi's was the one restaurant that came up multiple times when I asked for recommendations. The first time I went was when family came to visit - and it exceeded my expectations. Everyone who works there is fantastic - I can say without a doubt that they have the best service in any restaurant... More
