If you are tried to 1/2 pound hamburgers, pizza, and greasy over cooked vegetables try Epiphany. The food is fresh, and there are many unique items on the menu and you can get them in small portions (share plates) at reasonable prices. We ate at Epiphany last night with another couple and had 10 small plates that we shared with included among other things, Cauliflower Souffle, Heirloom Tomatoes with Goat Cheese, Squash Blossom Tamales, and Chocolate Espresso Mousse Cake. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and the service was excellent and after dinner the Chef, Tres Jackson stopped by to talk.

Wonderful preparation and presentation. If you are looking for fresh and local fare this is a great spot. The menu selections are tapas style so you can order a few small plates or a big plate.

Beautifully presented, great service, delicious food. Every bite was a joy. Had a reservation for the chef's table. Great experience. Chef and sous chef were very knowledgeable and friendly. Service was outstanding. Bar service was excellent. At the chef's table, the chef selects what will be served. It was several courses, and I ended up taking the lamb home -- too much to eat.

Menu just odd. Why all these weird combos? Pasta had 3 noodles in it. Rest sauce. Food was just really bad. Bread good but why ruin it and add sour pork flavoring? Yuk. Steak tough and leathery. Dessert even bad. Fewer odd flavor combos and better main dishes would be a great improvement.

I really enjoyed my meal at Epiphany. The menu was diverse, the service excellent, and the food was high quality. The only downside is that it is deceptively expensive. When you look at the menu, the prices are $10-$19 but these are tapas so you will need at least 2, more likely 3, to make a meal!
