I visited Epicure for the first time recently to see a band and really enjoyed the space. The band sounded great and the servers were friendly and attentive. The food was ok - the hummus and pita was a tasty appetizer and my boyfriend enjoyed his kebob platter. I found my broccolini pasta dish to be lacking in seasoning and... More

Great food, music and people. Highly recommend ! The pizza is the best in town. But I have tried most of the items on the menu and always surprised at how good everything is.

We went to hear a local jazz group, but were pleasantly surprised by the good food and the atmosphere. Felt like a real local joint. We had the sample starter and kabobs and everything was hot and tasty even though they had an overflow crowd. Wait staff were pleasant and helpful, despite the crowd. We'll go again.

While road tripping with 2 kids, we had to grab something light for dinner, after 4 hours of driving. Kids loved the pizza and we loved the beet salad and falafel-artichoke. Also good tasty Persian tea. Service was fantastic. The also have live music and trivia nights during evenings.

This was a great place. Found it last month. If you don't live in the area around it, you won't hear about it. Hole in the wall. It's small very casual with a roof top. Live bands or solos almost every night. If I lived close by it would be my regular dive bar. Beer and wine only. But it... More

We had a great evening with friends listening to the jazz tinged torch song diva who leads Coup DeVille her backup trio. Great stylings of old classics. The setting was a beautiful May evening so it was easy to sit back, relax, listen and dine on pizza (good!) and falafel salad. The service is super friendly without being overbearing. Not... More

This place has a great vibe. They did the space right. This is the only place like this in Fairfax. The pizza menu is painted on real records. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly, ask for Island, she's great. The chicken curry is fantastic, maybe best enjoyed on a cold winter evening with a stout. Pizzas are inspired and delicious!...

We first went to the old location to see music, saw the menu and decided to go back for food sometime. Not a huge selection but what they have is good. I have had the kabobs, an appetizer sampler and pizza - all very good. They have good local acts, friendly staff, a fun place to go. The new location... More

Nice little hole in the wall for local musicians to play. The sound is not great due to the size, but it is intimate. Tried a couple things from the menu and think I will stick to the nice cold beers.

In 2010, Epicure Cafe opened its doors as an independently owned and family-run music-themed cafe and gallery in Farifax, VA. Epicure offers delicious food, a tasteful beer and wine selection, coffee drinks, and an undying love and appreciation for the arts. Throughout the years, Epicure has become home to a growing family of young creatives in the DC area, as well as a warm haven to an incredibly creative local music scene. Despite a couple of setbacks in 2013, Epicure managed to secure an even bigger location in Fairfax at 11104 Lee Highway, less than .25 Miles up the street from the old spot with a roof deck bar and more. We have been here since January 2014. Come check out our new spot! :)
