We have been to Eno Vino several times over the past few years, but this time the food was better than ever before. It's always been very good, but last night the presentation was beautifully creative and everything we ordered was deliciously superb. The crispy lobster was unique and I wanted to order seconds. The only negative about Eno Vino is the "wine pad" which is their version of an electronic wine list. When I first asked for the wine list, the server said he could point us in the right direction with whatever wine we wanted. I said that I would really like to see the wine list and he said that it was on an iPad and he had to charge one but he could really help us if he knew what we were looking for. After waiting for 20 minutes or so, I noticed a wine pad not being used at another table and asked him if we could use that one. He seemed a bit perturbed, handed it to me, and said it might not work very well. I did finally get it to work and chose my wine (a delicious Brunello di Montelcino) but my strong suggestion to management is to either ditch the wine pads or make sure there is one charged, available, and working for each table. I do not want suggestions from servers who may be trying to up-sell or have been instructed to help sell an unpopular bottle.

Brazilian Steakhouse
Madison
About the restaurant
For those of you who are not current or former gauchos who roam the prairies of Brazil, you might need an explanation of our style of service. At the end on a long day of work tending to cattle and stock, Brazilian cowboys (Gauchos) and their families would prepare great feasts. They would skewer various meats, roast them over a fire pit and bring them to the table for carving. There would be a bounty of seasonal vegetables, stews and salads using fresh ingredients from the fruits of their labor.
