Visited on a weeknight. Waiter explained the menu and made suggestions. The atmosphere is lovely in the vintage building. Dinner selections vary but continue to be interesting.

It was great! The food was unique yet very interesting. This chef was extremely creative in composing dishes and while I would not have thought to put it together, I felt it worked beautifully. Definitely out of the box!

After reading many reviews my friends and I were excited to try Epiphany Cafe. However, by the end of the evening we were very disappointed. Our waitress was friendly, yet absent. The dishes were unique, but many just did not wok. Two of my friends decided on the fish but unfortunately it was well overcooked and rubbery in texture. Our... More

We like chain restaurants, but we are always looking for a local cafe' that is unique and has delicious food. Epiphany has all of those.

This restaurant takes farm to fork very seriously, and the excellent preparation of fresh ingredients makes for a distinctive meal. The servers are personable and strive to tailor each dish to your personal needs and desires. Highly recommended!

Epiphany specializes in small plates. They have a wide ranging menu. The vegetarian in our party had many menu choices and the rest of us enjoyed those dishes as well. Good wine selection and local beers are featured. everything is plated beautifully and the waitstaff has extensive knowledge of the menu.

Had to wait a few minutes for a table in this small but really good restaurant. Hard to believe such an innovative place is in Tuscaloosa. Menu changes daily.

Epiphany Cafe is a farm-to-table cafe in downtown Tuscaloosa and serves the best food in town! The menu changes frequently and incorporates many different spices and food combinations. My wife and I have dined there several times and have always been impressed. The service is excellent and the bar has a good selection of wine.

The menu is very different! Mainly tapas but melding unique flavors and seasonal farm to table items from local farms. We tried five different tapas- all very, very good! My favorite was spaghetti with mushrooms, blue crab and lemon.
