    The place looks very fancy but is still a very relaxed atmosfere. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Wine list was great and they help you through it. Food was amazing, we had the shrimp ceviche, bruschetta, paella, shrimp tacos and Korean pork ribs. We took relatives who were visiting and they loved it, already wanted to go back there the next day. Works great for a romantic dinner or a small group. We didn't bring the kids but it doesn't seem like it would be a very good fit for them since is dark and fancy. We're will return there multiple times. We were there on a Saturday afternoon and it was quiet enough.

    We are from the D.C. area and thought this was in downtown Madison. Surprised to see it more or less in the suburbs - in an upscale shopping area - and even more surprised at the interior architecture and the food. Really terrific place with very large portions for "small plates"/tapas. terrific service and an overall great experience. Food was very, very good, Altogether, a winner and well worth the trip from "downtown" Madison.

    Went here with friends over the weekend-and as is normal, the service was very good, as was the food. The place was packed by 6:15 or so--so the noise level was a little loud, and hard to hear conversation. On the flip side, with it being crowded after all these years, it is still a great place to go. Menu rotates seasonally which is nice. Will definitely go back!

    I found this restaurant by reading great reviews. Eno Vino was EVEN BETTER than I had hoped for! Group of 4 on a Saturday night. We arrived quite early and they set us up in the bar area. Actually a much better (quieter) seating area. Dining room was huge and busy. Great atmosphere, but we preferred the quiet seclusion. Food was outstanding! Highlights were shrimp ceviche and shrimp flat bread. But the other 3 dishes were delish as well. Nice sized portions. Great selection. Really good wine list. I would go back to Middleton, WI just to eat here again. The place is huge, but it was still packed! Amazing quality coming out of a kitchen that must get slammed continually.

    First impression-first time visit, staff was very poor. Absolutely no greeting (2 people), just a stare, like we needed to talk first. One of them needed to get some menus from behind me and basically pushed past to get them with no 'excuse me'. Extremely noisy place couldn't have a good conversation if we tried! Entree was rare - ordered med. Waitress more interested in a table of possble friends...had to inturupt to finally get the check taken care of. Otherwise...foood was fine and decore was nice. overall only an average visit.

    I miss the charbroiled oysters on the menu, but some other favorites still remained (like the port wine sauced ravioli w/ fois gras). Meal was fit for a king. I love that smoky tequila martini. The hint of jalapeno is perfect. thanks for another wonderful evening.

    We've always loved Eno Vino. We've had many a birthday, dates, and other misc visits to this restaurant; we were engaged here. The staff is always wonderful and management staff touches base at some point in your visit. This is the first time we've had any issues with anything here. The problem was the New York strip special. We requested that it be prepared to a medium temperature. Unfortunately for us it was not. It was closer to medium rare. We actually argued over its final temperature, and whether it was warmer or cooler than our ordering preference. Regardless, it was not prepared to medium. We didn't return it for one basic reason, the presentation. With the work put into the presentation and then to return it, didn't seem right.

    Eno vino has a wonderful selection of shareable plates. It's perfect for a group. I went with three others and each plate was the perfect size for us. The filet and the Korean potstickers were amazing. I also loved the ahi tuna tacos and the crab cakes. The only disappointing dish was the tuna crudo. The have a nice list of specialty cocktails. The mojito is among the best I've had with the addition of ginger. The drinks are very reasonably priced. Our server was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and attentive but she didn't hover. The ambience is chill and worked for a night with friends or a romantic dinner. We didn't sit outside due to weather but there is a very small outdoor seating section. Loved Eno Vino and will be back.

    This was our first visit, and we had high expectations, but came away disappointed. The menu is very interesting, however, the execution was not up to snuff, especially given the price-portion ratio. I'm not against paying for great food, and also not someone who needs huge portions, but when prices are this high and portions this small, I expect to be wowed. Case in point: we ordered the risotto of the day (duck confit and Parmesan); we got a small bowl that was so thick, it could pass the DQ blizzard test. Major sin. On the other hand, the fillet with rouge buerre was terrific, but very small. Even the creme brûlée was a bummer. The brownie and raspberry base was almost unedible. Bright spot: cheese plate. Also, it was very loud.

    We went out with a group of 4 for a birthday dinner. The food was delicious, a little pricey but high quality. Tapas style with good amounts on each plate. The staff was so helpful and patient! First, we had some trouble with directions and we were late, but they were still accommodating. We then had people join dinner halfway through so we needed to move tables, and at the end we also had some trouble trying to split the bill - both the servers and what appeared to be maybe the manager jumped to help us and didn't act the least bit annoyed. It was a great experience overall, I will definitely consider it for special occasions in the future!

If you like a place that has a lot of lighting this is not the place for you. I really enjoy a relaxing environment so it worked well! I enjoyed every dish that we ordered and the drinks were perfect! I will definitely go back the next time I visit Madison.

    Excellently prepared food is consistent, service was timely and not intrusive. Three of us shared 4-5 tapas dishes and were satisfied, bill was over $100 FYI w/wine but not dessert, glad we had a gift card. Allergic to soy and eggs (not gluten or dairy), limited substitutes, soy seems to be part of lots of their dishes; did a great job of checking ingredients and manager came by to ensure we were having a good time. We like deep bodied red wines by the glass, limited but very good/acceptable couple of choices (no bottle wanted since it was during the week and take home not allowed). Open table reservation was easy and awesome for same day reserve. Too bad the patio got rained out, we usually like it and they have happy hr. prices there.

    As only one of our group of four had been there before, the wait staff explained the tapa concept of sharing all of the intricately prepared dishes each of us ordered, and everything was fresh and beautifully presented. It's an opportunity to try several gourmet items. My adult son had a complimentary dessert, as it was his birthday. It was an overall memorable experience.

    We enjoyed our evening dining outside, but the view could use some work. We looked straight at a black SUV. I don't know how you could improve it, given the parking situation, but it detracts from the overall ambience. The food, on the other hand, was a very pleasant surprise. I can put up with the view if it means another encounter with the crab cakes and that asian platter with the chicken satay and the wontons. The blueberry arugula manchego salad was also outstanding.
