- Good overallFoodiePDined on 9/26/2014Great service and abiance. Wine was very good. Bruschetta was the best food item we had. A couple other things were just too spicy.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- All around excellent experience!MakingmehungryDined on 9/20/2014I 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.Special Features:
- Noisy!travelingfoodiesDined on 9/18/2014First 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.Special Features:
- food was as always spectacular.FoodieFanDined on 9/9/2014I 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.Special Features:
- Not like past experiencesOpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 9/6/2014We'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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Wonderful eveningdadeohDined on 9/5/2014"The Best of Madison" sure had it right with this find! Wonderful ambiance, great service and awesome food! A perfect choice for a romantic evening. It helped make our anniversary celebration memorable! The beef tenderloin and prosciutto bruschetto was wonderfully flavorful and the steak risotto was outstanding!Special Features:
- Great plates to share and drinksGirlaskew12Dined on 9/4/2014Eno 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Always excellent, great menu.Searching4thebestVIPDined on 9/3/2014At other places you find one or two things you want to try on the menu. We've gone through the whole menu here and have loved everything. Wonderful food, great wine selection. That's why we keep coming back.Special Features:
- foodDocRobDined on 8/31/2014A little too much potato in my wife's seafood dish.Special Features:
- Disappointingnd89sc88Dined on 8/27/2014This 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.
- MUST HAVEfoodyDined on 8/18/2014My Wife and I went for our anniversary and were very happy with our choice. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Our food parings were spot on. The seared sesame tuna was to die for and the prince Edward mussels were amazing!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- We loved the service and food!OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/15/2014We 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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OutstandingloveeatinganddrinkingwineDined on 8/14/2014We have eaten here many times...............this occasion we took our friends from out of state. All four of us agreed the food was outstanding. I wish I could remember our servers name. She was fantastic! I think this is our new go to place!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- great findmadqdogVIPDined on 8/12/2014Travelling xcountry, we found Eno Vino and what a find! Super service and terrific food.Special Features:
- Comfortable and PleasantTruthbetoldDined on 8/9/2014A very pleasant experience! The wait staff was very accommodating and sincere. They went above and beyond to get us exactly what we wanted. The ambience is relaxing. Very low lighting in there. 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.Special Features:
- Music is Too LoudKonovanVIPDined on 8/8/2014We had another good experience at Eno Vino. However, it appears they are trying to create an energetic atmosphere by playing the music so loud you have to yell to be heard. Wish they would lower the volume just a little
- Great Wine and Tapas!Searching4thebestVIPDined on 8/6/2014We love the special treats the chef creates for the wine and food pairings on Wednesdays. We had a truly delicious 3 course meal with interesting wines enhanced by the food.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- GallelamaDined on 8/6/2014Wife's Birthday so special flowers at table plus $22 off bill including desert. Friendly greeting and immediate seating. Food was outstanding as usual. A little pricey but well worth it!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- A favorite with a few friendsNJoyFineCasualDined on 8/1/2014Excellently 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Special birthday dinnerOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 6/23/2014As 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good wine list & gluten-freeNleatgoodDined on 6/19/2014Excellent food - good wine list on a tablet. Our waiter was excellent and we were easily accommodated with our dietary restrictions.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Room for a ViewBonnie315Dined on 6/13/2014We 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.Special Features:
- Plesently SurprisedeastsidergoingwestDined on 6/13/2014I arrived at Eno Vino a bit apprehensive because I had a preconceived notion that it would be snobby. I couldn't have been more wrong! We were greeted with smiles and a friendly hello and the hospitality never stopped from the hostess, bartenders, to our very friendly waitress who was very helpful with the menu selections. I will certainly be coming back again. The scallops were the best we have had, and the free dessert for my fiance was an added bonus! Thank you!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Pricey but great!OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 6/6/2014It was excellent but pricey. I had a gift certificate which I assumed was enough to cover our 4 people but ended up spending more than twice that. It was very good food and service and the Old Fashioned was excellent.Special Features:
- Great nightperfecteveningDined on 6/6/2014We sat and ate at the bar and were completely satisfied. The drinks were generous and during happy hour quite reasonable. We had three dishes. The edamame was enough for 4. The crispy calamari was also very good and lots of it. Also the crab cakes were all crab with little or no filler. We finished dinner with Crème Brule which was the best we had ever had. Cream ,carmel and chocolate topped with a sliced strawberry. The only thing keeping us from a weekly excursion there is the miserable traffic on the constantly under repair hwy. But when that's done they will see a lot more of us.Special Features:
- just a Tuesday eveningneighborhooddinerDined on 6/3/2014The food was excellent, the service was outstanding. We dined outside on the patio and could have done without the vehicle idling for 09 minutes in an adjacent parking space, or the diesel-powered tow truck that picked up another nearby disabled vehicle. Will stick to inside for future occasions.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Scallop special should remain.OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 5/25/2014Went to dine here with my father, and got the seared scallops. He had recently returned from a cruise around Spain and France. He had scallops on the sea shore in Nice, France and said that the same dish here at Eno Vino was as good or better than the fresh caught dish he had by the Mediterranean shore. That, for me, was some high praise.Special Features:
- WonderfulAliPDined on 5/23/2014We made reservations online for an intimate birthday dinner. We are new to Eno Vino and because it was my special day, I asked for the best seats in the house. The hostess greeted and seated us immediately in the best seats :), and our server could not have been better. The food came out in a decent amount of time, was presented beautifully, and tasted delicious. Drinks were great too! We had the old fashioned cocktail and sparkling pinot noir. I had looked at the menu prior to our visit and was actually counting on ordering a dessert that to my surprise was no longer on the menu, however, I was very happy with the creme brulee that I ordered instead. The manager checked in with us towards the end of the visit, which was very professional.Special Features:
- Great!cmclienDined on 5/23/2014This was our first time to Eno Vino. The food was truly excellent but pricey! $$$$ Really glad we went and will go again I'm sure. We went with another couple and we each ordered 2 dishes plus dessert and that was PLENTY of food so I'm glad we didn't order three each to start out with. The ambience was nice and the restaurant pretty though a bit dark. Very mood light lighting but I think perhaps a little too dark even for mood lighting imho.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Absolutely delicious...LuvGr8FoodDined on 5/15/2014Dinner was amazing as always and the service was great. You must get the green beans. The only part that ever takes away from the dining experience is the noise level. Otherwise, experience is great and love that they don't rush you through your meal.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
