One of the best in Kalamazoo, if not the best. Great service, excellent food. You can not go wrong here.

“The Best!”
Reviewed 11 August 2012

When we are celebrating a special event and don't care the expense, yes, this is the place to go in Kalamazoo. My kids have standard things to get because they love them. Yeah, baby.

“Great selection of European and craft beers”
Reviewed 22 July 2012

I keep finding myself at Central City Tap House inside the Epic Bistro for business meetings and gatherings of friends. It's a pretty small place, so it can get crowded, but if you are in the mood for some great imports or regional craft beers, you will find this is the place for you.

They don't have a huge menu, but there definitely are some interesting selections. Last night I tried the Mac and cheese with lobster and shrimp. I rarely order Mac and cheese at a restaurant, but I can't pass up lobster in any dish. It was delicious. Great flavor with a nice crunch. I also
recommend their deviled eggs as an appetizer. There is just a little bacon in top to give it a good smoky/salty flavor.

“Epic Bistro serves delicious food with a high class atmosphere”
Reviewed 10 June 2012

I loved everything about the Epic Bistro--service was professional and timely, menu offered a nice variety of selections, and the atmosphere is upscale. I like the open kitchen design which is nicely placed near the back of the restaurant so it is visible but does not overpower the more classic dining room setting. Our meal was delicious. They offer a nice selection of wines and beers to enjoy with your meal. The prices are a little on the higher side for Kalamazoo but the meal quality is definitely well above most other places in the area.

“Very classy”
Reviewed 29 May 2012

Nowadays, you know you hardly have to dress up for any place, but this place deems at least your best blue jeans. A higher $$$$ value for most the dishes, but they are all that awesome. Excellent steaks. Great service. Warm atmosphere. Parking available fairly close.
