The new chef is amazingly talented -- sensational food!

Nighly specials are always spectacular and the standard menu is terrific as it offers a nice variety if selections without being overwhelming.

My group of friends love to go to Epernay for happy hour before treating ourselves to dinner. The staff are friendly.

Definitely some of the island's best cuisine is served at Epernay.

Thank StThomasMan

Epernay is all about space or lack of it....which makes for a great social environment as it is very easy to meet other customers and get to know the owner and staff. It is a long, intimate space and we reserved the best table in the house which is the last table in back of the restaurant...sitting at this table allows you to look at the entire restaurant and whomever is coming in the door. There were three of us at this table. The presentation, especially the soup (in this case, leek), was impressive. The quality of our selections were all great and dessert was equally fine. Epernay is located in the heart of Frenchtown which is a quaint fishing village with many fine restaurants but Epernay ranks among the best. The owner came to our table to greet us and Fernando, the waiter, was gracious and attentive. You can't go wrong. Enjoy....

We tried Epernay based on the positive feedback on Trip Advisor. Very small intimate restaurant. So make reservations. A lot of locals eat here - this is a good sign since they live there. We started with Calamari - pretty typical but great garlic dipping sauce. We then had the daily salad special with fresh tomatoes, black garlic and schmaltz powder (freeze dried chicken fat). It was outstanding. The tomatoes were so fresh and juicy. The schmaltz powder was so interesting combined with the black garlic. My husband had the meatloaf. Yes - meatloaf at this trendy chic restaurant - but it was the best we ever had. Not your mom's by far. I had the New York Strip. I thought the portion was small. It was served with Pomme Frites - very good. We met the owner Michael. He chatted with us quite a while. Very involved and passionate about his establishment. Wait staff was very attentive and friendly. We highly recommend - would go back ourselves.

Great find in Frenchtown. The best meal in STT. Even if pricier than your average taco place, well worth it.

Epernay is such a wonderful dining experience. It really is like having a tiny Parisian gem right here on St. Thomas! Mike Stark and members of his staff [Fernando, Jen and the rest] all do an outstanding job in making sure that you have a memorable experience. Epernay offers a very unique and excellently prepared menu--escargot, truffle oil French Fries, steak and pomme frites, mussels and some of the best calamari on the island! Every item is prepared by the chef with an unexpected and wonderful twist that just leaves you wanting more. Fresh, local ingredients, creativity and an attention to detail make for a chef's dream come true and you can tell that Epernay's chef is passionate about what he does.

For the small, intimate size of Epernay, they have undoubtedly one of the best stocked bars and wine collections around.

If you haven't dined here, you should go! If you have, then you'll be like us and keep going back!
