"Came here with 2 of my friends for Sunday brunch. Place was quiet but quaint and beautiful inside. Service was super friendly, Paulo was our server. The bloodies were awesome and the highlight were the zuchini fritters (pancakes) with avocado mash and a fried egg. It was the most heavenly breakfast I've ever had. Burrata and avocado toast were also great and the homemade pappardelle was amazing. Definitely a great find, and no wait for an awesome Sunday brunch is a huge plus! Get here."

"My friend recommended the place and when I arrived I remembered that I had already been there once and really enjoyed the atmosphere then already. We were a small group of 6-7 people, the reservation was super easy and we got the best table on their small stage. The manager on site was very attentive and just fit perfectly into the place. When leaving, we all received a good-bye hug. How memorable is that!? Fantastic place. You should check out Sundays, where they have live music."

"great restaurant but the food wasn't the best. The food wasn't fresh and not warm- it was is if they were pre-made and just sitting on the counter waiting until someone ate them."

"I have been to Epistrophy in the past and the food was good. This visit was unfortunately a great disappointment. The spaghetti tested like it came from a chef Boyardee can, the other two items were barely edible. We were very disappointment with the entire meal."

"Great food and reasonably priced. Only downside was we had a very inexperience waitress but it was fine.
Servings were slightly on the smaller size but I enjoyed that more than the unnecessarily large servings at other restaurants."

"We reserved a table for 4 that was in the back on a bit of a platform--super stylish and my friends and I loved it. The homemade pastas were perfection. My only gripe is the cash only policy, but there is an ATM inside so it was fine. Overall, it had the perfect mix of great good and great ambiance."

"We went for brunch, the croissant breakfast sandwhiches were amazing. The food all seemed high quality. It wasn't too crowded and had a neighborhood, slow vibe. Really cute. Don't get the regular coffee though, opt for a latte or something, the regular coffee wasn't very good."
