It IS epicurean indeed. Such delicious gourmet food in the very heart of downtown Alton!
I don’t leave reviews often but I have to say the crab cakes are probably the best I’ve ever had. We also got the Bacon Gouda Quiche. Delicious! We will definitely be back.
My first experience was great! They were accommodating and friendly. The food was delicious! I’ll be back!
I got dinner from EF tonight & I will be back. Delicious.
Excellent entrees and sides!! Scrumptious! Great portion size. Phenomenal service! We will definitely be back!
