Lady & Gentlemen it's our Pleasure
We've been 9 times since enoSTEAK has opened. Each and every time has been a pleasure and delight. The staff who know us by name, treat us as valued guests in their home. Our needs are tended to almost without asking. The beef is the best available in Orange County and the prep has always been nothing short of perfect. It's not a cheap date, you are going to the Ritz Carlton for dinner, so you know what to expect. I only wish they had a slightly expanded dessert selection, but the ones they usually have are very good. Dress up, sit up straight then relax and let their staff take care of you in the Ritz Carlton Style. If you are lucky, and know what to ask for you may get the best seat in the house.

Food, service and ambiance
Food, service and ambiance were all outstanding. The steak was out of this world! The peanut butter desert was terrific, but more desert options would be good (there were 2)

Celebrated a friend's birthday
Enjoyed the halibut. It was very tasty and juicy. The truffle mac and cheese was delicious. My friend had the tenderloin with the mushrooms and peas. She loved it too. We were celebrating her birthday and they really made it special for her. They brought over a dessert plate which said "Happy Birthday" and a lit candle. It was so nice.
Honestly, I cannot wait to go back.

Oh My Goodness!
This restaurant was fabulous. The steak was so delicious and you didn't even need a steak knife. The portion was huge! All the side dishes and appetizers we ordered were flavorful......so much so, the entire table was Ohhhhhing and Awwwwing throughout the meal. I recommend this to anyone who is a die hard steak eater......you will not be disappointed.

Stand Out Restaurant
Service, food, atmosphere all excellent. For something special, try the roasted bone marrow appetizer. The grass fed beef tenderloin was delicious with the truffle butter and the grilled rib eye steak was at the top of the list for flavor. Excellent special occasion restaurant. If it's just the two of you, request the table right in front of the fireplace; very romantic. When restaurant was full, it was a little noisy. The service is superb all the way around. Highly recommend.

Bone in ribeye
I've been to this restaurant 4 times now. The cuts of beef changes every time that I went. Each cut is still superbly seasoned and aged. My go to place for steak. And I have tried many steak places. As for the side plates, mushrooms were good, green beans (the small thin crisp ones) Mac. They have 4 sauces or butter spread that you can have with your steak. I liked the garlic herb and the truffle. Just the walk around the hotel is very scenic. Perfect for a date night spot. But it is very quiet and the ambience kind of makes me want to fall asleep.

Best steak in a long, long time
Had an amazing meal at enoSteak. Took my wife for a special occasion, and we both commented that the steak was the best that we'd had in a long, long time (possibly ever). Service was top-notch (what else would you expect from the Ritz-Carlton?), the space has a cool old-school midwest steakhouse vibe, and the food was outstanding. The menu isn't huge, but I'd rather have fewer choices of extreme quality, than many choices of mediocrity. You can get 4 different butters/sauces to put on top, but the steak is such a high quality, that I hesitated to do anything to cover up the natural taste. It is a pricey place, but in this case you definitely get what you pay for - an incredible meal.

I ate the tenderloin. It was perfectly cooked with a crisp outer layer and perfectly pink center. My husbands porterhouse was by far the best steak he's ever eaten! Our server, Rachel, was helped to make our night special. She had such a lovely sparkly personality as well as being knowledgable about the gluten free options for myself.

The best steak we've ever eaten!
We ordered the filet and it was absolutely the very best steak we'd ever had in a restaurant. Everything was delicious and the service was fabulous--as you would expect at a Ritz-Carlton Hotel. Highly recommended!

As a resident of south Orange County, there is a definite lack of Steak houses. For a night out we decided to go to Eno.
Food was delicious, service was attentive, wine list was a secret, and everything was good. Restaurant is small and it did get very loud later in the evening.
Overall this is a good recommend but it was very pricey..

Excellent food and service!!! Highly recommend!!!!

A restaurant truly befitting the Ritz-Carlton. A small seating area - so, it's difficult to get a reservation. The service is excellent. I couldn't decide on a wine - so they opened two bottles for me to choose from. The one I did not purchase, they made into a 'wine by the glass special'. Very good thinking on their part. The steaks (and the seafood) are excellent. The desserts are amazing, too. The best dessert was the 'birthday special'. The pricing is on par with other high-end steakhouses in the area. But the service and food are right up there, too.

Great Romantic Spot
Quite a small restaurant, but I consider it the best one in the Ritz Carlton - Laguna Niguel. The food is amazing, and the service is impeccable. It's expensive, but not any more than other fine dining establishments in the area.

First Class Dinner
We've been to Eno a few times and each time does not disappoint. They truly have incredible steaks and service. However, we usually do share when we go as the steak portions are large but also expensive. We generally share an appetizer, salad and side, too. Do not be embarrassed to do so. They will portion/cut your items and re-plate them. The wedge is very good. The meat and cheese platter is delicious. We always get the rib-eye, and the various compound butters are delicious.They also have this chocolate cake in a mug. I am not sure if it is for special occasions but ask. Service is always spot on, friendly and Ritz Carlton style! We could go anywhere is the OC/LA area and we have chose to come here time and time again.

enoSTEAK is a small place tucked inside the Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel. The moderate sized room is chopped in half by the wines on display in the middle of the room in a floor to ceiling display case. The ambiance could have been helped a bit if the lights had been dimmed just a bit more.
None of this, of course, has an effect on either the food or the service, both of which were both very good. Traditional steak choices and traditional side options, with a bit of an upscale vibe (8 butter options). So think wedge cut salads but a tartar/quail egg option. Steaks cooked perfectly.
Best part of the experience is the amazing location. Great option for a date night. Grab a meal, have a drink after, and check out the view.

Exceptional service and wonderfully prepared dinner with superior wine. It was a birthday dinner with a twist, as I had asked for my date's hand in marriage hours before. They treated us with glasses of champagne. We never had to ask for anything, they were always there with the next right thing. Very good California wine list. The salads and sides were incredible, and the steaks prepared perfectly. And although it may seem a small thing, the chairs were soo comfortable. We'll be back.

My husband and I went here
My husband and I went here for our anniversary. The food was prepared to perfection and the service was impeccable. I think they could work on their overall ambiance as it was really bright in the dining area and my husband felt a draft from the hotel the entire time. Overall, we had a great experience and would go back.

Enjoyed a fabulous thanksgiving meal! They had some of the best turkey I've ever eaten and the selection of traditional thanksgiving sides were delicious and creative. All around a perfect evening.
