    Waiter was not very seasoned. Our drink orders were taken AFTER our dinner order and when I asked about a certain wine, he answered... "ok, but what about for your food????" We also didn't see our waiter for long periods of time in between courses, at one point the manager took our dessert order. No bread was given at our table, the next table over however did get bread. The bar scene?.......let's just say there isn't one. Service leaves ALOT to be desired.

    I was pleasantly surprised by the amount and diversity of the local produce and game on the innovative but enjoyable menu. We got to be the first to try the local venison rack - tender, not too gamy, but with a nice collection of spices. Portions are reasonable, cheeses were outstanding, and the wine selection (even by the glass) was both interesting and affordable.

    Lille
    Dined on 11/2/2008
    Thoroughly enjoyable first time visit. I brought a guest from Chicago, and we had so much fun ordering way too much food and splitting all of the dishes. The food was superb. Out table was quiet and we weren't squished too closely to other people which is great when one wishes to converse. The wood and glass are beautiful. The place is still clean because it is new...and that appeals to me a great deal. The server was friendly and accomodating. Soft lighting. Music was pleasant, not grating or offensive, not too loud or too soft.

    Very limited menu. Not willing to substitute side dishes. Pricey. Extensive, but expensive wine list. Desserts OK...nothing great. Not accommodating for larger groups. We were told that they could not seat a party of more than 8 people. We were seated upstairs and there were plenty of open tables that could have allowed us to add to our party. Nice restaurant in the wrong location.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 10/31/2008
    Very disappointing. I made the reservation 4 days in advance. At 4:00 on the day of the reservation, I had a phone message stating that I MUST call to reconfirm my reservation. Inconvenient! We arrived early, and told them we would like to spend time at the bar until our 7:00 reservation. They don't know how to make drinks and we had to send back two of the three ordered. While we recognize that the specialty is wine, they should be able to make simple drink. After only 15 minutes at the bar, the hostess came to seat us. We told her we wanted time at the bar and didn't want to be seated until 7:00. At 6:40 the she returned to seat us. We told her she was rushing us. Then, the food was mediocre,bordering on bad, & expensive.

  • This "upscale newcomer" touts
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 10/25/2008
    This "upscale newcomer" touts local and organic seasonal foods, and has a lot of pretentiousness upon entering the building. The food was well below decent, and I will not return. The mushroom bruschetta, while tasty, was served fridge-cold, really too cold to enjoy. The skirt steak (at $36) was burnt and bitter, with stale corn bread and chard that was cold and, also, bitter. The super-hyped gnocchi was bubblegum-soft and bland, with cualiflower completely dominating the dish. Desert (peach-cranberry cobbler) was plain, just decent, but can only be ordered for two. To top it off, the cappuccino looked and tasted like soapy water, and the espresso was cold, flat and tasteless. Both coffees were re-made, with only little improvement.

    My husband and I are big fans of the Terra Momo Group and they have scored another home run with Eno Terra. We have been waiting for this restaurant to open and we were not disappointed. The location is great with a scenic view, the decor is beautiful with the rustic feel and the most important part, the food was terrific. New Jersey grown, fresh food...You couldn't ask for a better meal.

  • Poor consistency is my review
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 10/10/2008
    Poor consistency is my review of this restaurant - I have been to it twice. The first time, on the second night it was open, was fabulous. In particular, the various crostini plate was an excellent value, as was the tomato salad. Both were of high quality and tasty. The pork chop was juicy on the inside and salty and crusty on the outside. Perfect. Finally, the chamomile flan was light, creamy and possessed a unique basil glaze that reminded me that the chef was formerly with Grammercy Tavern. The second time, I ordered nearly the same meal. Unfortunately, the quality, presentation and taste of my second meal was poor. Lastly, the ambiance was not helped by two tables, each with crying infants. Check your children at the door.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 10/8/2008
    Food was very spicy and combinations in dishes did not complement each other. New York City prices for Central NJ - very expensive compared to other restaurants in the area and portions are small. When my wife and I can have an appetizer, dinner and dessert, finish it and leave not satisfied and pay $125.00 for a meal then I expect to be eating in NYC but receive NYC quality food and ambience. We will not be returning to the restaurant and have not recommended the restaurant to friends and family. We will return to our favorite restaurant in the area - 153!! Sorry that this was a dining dissappointment for such a beautiful place.

Wine selections by the glass and choice of carafe sizes was much appreciated and the food was very good.

    Wonderful new restaurant in the Princeton area. Lively vibe and welcoming decor. The emphasis is on local and unusual ingredients and preparations. The open salami and bread bar kept my attention and the salami sampler was excellent! All our courses were unusual, rich with flavor and presented beautifully. The wines are helpfully available in four "sizes" from glass to bottle, with 250 and 500 ml carafes in the middle. We will be back.
