                                One of my favorite restaurants in Nashville. Excellent food and service. The wine list is very expensive but has some wonderful selections if you are in a position to splurge for a special occasion.

                                We really enjoy Lebanese food so we were excited to come for Mother's Day. We were able to be seated semi-outdoors which we really appreciated. Our server, Kevin, was simply outstanding! Rare to have someone so competent, kind and solicitous yet unobtrusive! The food was very good--particularly the ground lamb in the sandwich. The hummus was standard, but the topping of ground sirloin, spices and pine nuts was great. The salad had potential with almonds and dried apricots but the dressing was nothing special. We plan to return for dinner to try some of the most well-known items on the menu...

                                Been here several times. Brought a friend from out of state. Our waiter went over nothing on the menu and it was basically the vibe of just pick something, eat, and get out. My friend was unimpressed as well. They seemed under staffed maybe is all we could think of. My chicken dish was extremely dry, with barely any yoghurt with one asparagus sprig along with a skinny charred one. We were trying to figure out if our waiter was one of the owners, manager, part time bus boy because he was doing a lot. It was sadly not a good experience and I can’t bring any more out of towners here again. She said her meatball dish was good so I’m happy her plate was decent. I’d go back but maybe not for 6-9 months hoping they get their act together.

                                Very elegant atmosphere and the food is insanely good. I don't understand how it is possible to pack such intense flavor into every bite. It's expensive but worth it!

                                Cannot wait to go back to Epice and recommend it to friends. From the atmosphere and decor, to the service and food — especially the food — everything is fresh and uncomplicated. I recommend sitting outside on the enclose patio. It’s as if you’ve been transported to somewhere other than a trendy Nashville neighborhood. Must go.

                                Love the flatbreads that change daily, and the fresh salads. Cozy atmosphere, always friendly staff. Happy to have found this in my 12 So neighborhood. The hummus and eggplant appetizers are very good as well. The menu accommodates vegetarian, pescatarian, carnivore and vegan diners!

                                After a long hiatus, due to COVID, we returned to Epice for a birthday dinner. We were disappointed to see that our two favorite vegetarian entrees were no longer on the menu. The plate of grilled vegetables did not sound that appetizing so we ended up with salads plus falafel, which were good. Our non-vegetarian guest enjoyed his sirloin. The server was excellent and very knowledgeable about the wine list. Overall we had a good dining experience . . . we just miss the veggie entrees.

                                Absolutely incredible. Everything we got was delicious. Very quickly becoming one of my favorite spots for dinner in Nashville. Don't miss the flatbread, the cauliflower, or the lamb meatballs!!

                                Everything we ordered had so much flavor to it! Charred cauliflower to start, beet salad before the aromatic meatballs with lamb. Bees Knees gin cocktail. All of it was delicious!

                                We started with cocktails, grape leaves and hummus. Entrees were meatballs, Sayadaya, vegetables and roast chicken. Everything was excellent. We will definitely be back

                                Always enjoyable and different. Nice break from the heavy Cuisine more common in Nashville. Service, location and ambience great, food this time was a bit uneven but the hits were very much worth it.
