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

Delicious food that is prepared the way Grandma would have. Sometimes there is a wait but it is well worth it. Absolutely good food!

EPA's serves fantastic AND authentic food from a culture that's not widely represented in the US....so put it on your must-go list! Ingredients are top quality and fresh, preparation if meticulous, and every dish, from salad, soup, to other courses, is flavorful. We've had everything from baby squid in ink and tongue, to more "normal" fare like pork chops and... More

Food is served here with class. The portions are perfect, the service is great and the menu items make it difficult to decide

This nights special was the monkfish with... More

An absolute must do when in Treasure Valley. Food is outstanding and the Basque traditional dinners are great. Small local family run place, reservations a must, call a day or two ahead. Wines pretty darn good too.
