Very good food; reasonably priced; loud - good service - this is one of our favorites Edmonds. Very wise to make reservations as it seems to fill up quickly.

Hands down the best happy hour food menu in town. Lots of choices including short ribs, pasta, shrimp. The truffle popcorn is to die for! Good Gluten free options.

Great lively atmosphere, friendly staff and interesting decor. My only negative comment is they need a larger selection of local tap beers.

On a rainy Sunday night I met a friend for the 9PM happy hour at this elegant restaurant. I arrived a little before 9PM and was met at the door by the gracious bartender/server who explained the specials board and late night menu. Good thing I arrived early since by 930pm all the bar tables were full-a good sign! My... More

A friend and I came here after a local event. The food is above average and the restaurant is beautiful. It's apparent by how the staff speaks of the dishes that they are treated well and are knowledgeable about and proud of their locally grown cuisine.

... which is good and bad! The tables are pretty smushed together in the bar, so it can be hazardous navigating them with a bag/purse. The bar can also be pretty noisy; you can get an earful of your neighbors' conversations - but that can happen anywhere. Super good food, and they often have a featured mocktail - which is... More

What a delightful meal! On a rare ladies' night out, we had small appetizers, wine (try the Chateau Eugenie Cahors), salads, baguettes and butter, and then, more wine. Did I say it was a rare night out? The place was packed, so service, though willing, was weak. I don't know the solution to this, because it is difficult to predict... More

We have eaten there three times now. Each of our meals or well presented and delicious. The wait staff is friendly and pays attention to your needs. Although you're sitting in fairly close quarters, crowd noise is not too bad. It's like most restaurants for noise pollution, but the atmosphere is very good for an uphill Main street nondescript location.

Small plates make a wonderful meal..the cauliflower is wonderful, and the service was perfect. Seasonal salads add a very special and tasty balance, along with the lamb chops.

Using the best local and seasonal ingredients from the garden, the land, and the sea, Epulo's menu lets the quality of the food shine. Using the time-honored techniques and passion of the Mediterranean region, Epulo's menu is a celebration of Europe's influence on Northwest food.

We celebrate, in our charming town of Edmonds, the same relationship between food and community that is woven into the fabric of Europe's coastal villages. This is a place where food is a serious pursuit and community the most delicious ingredient.
