For small plates there are better options in Madison, but this is still a solid option.

Love ordering several small plates and a pitcher of sangria. Everything was delicious! We both have food allergies, but our waitress and the chef were very helpful. There is both a gluten sensitive and dairy free menu, which was so great!

Nice evening. Ate outside on patio. Only frustration was that we told the host we had made reservation on Open Table and they seated us. As we were sitting our phone rang and it was reminder from restaurant Open Table that we had reservation. When we arrived home found an email asking why we did not show up. Disappointing end to nice evening. I called back and they said they were sorry.

The food was delicious and the service was superb. Our server, Melinda, was very nice and thoughtful. I had asked for a couple of glasses of champagne to be on the table when we arrive and she obliged with no problem and was fine with my wife and I having a leisurely celebration dinner. Will definitely go back...really wish we didn’t live 2.5 hours away.

The place was busy, very noisy, and service was inattentive. Food was good but not a good experience. I’ll focus on service here. It was a birthday celebration, and was that specified on our reservation. At other restaurants the staff would be saying “happy birthday” with every stop at our table. No acknowledgement here, no conversation at all. Seemed like he wanted to take our order so he could move on to other tables. I had to ask if they did anything for birthdays. The answer, “a free dessert.” Still no happy birthday wishes until he brought the check.
Our waitress last time was great, so may have been luck of the draw. We drew the short straw this time.

We loved the recent excellent dinner we had for the Wine and Tapas feature on a Wednesday evening. The chef prepared regionally appropriate foods to pair with the 3 Rhone wines being tasted -- exceptional salmon quenelles with Nantua sauce were delicious paired with the white wine, lamb ravioli with a strawberry reduction sprinkled with feta and minced red onion were outstanding with the lighter red wine, and a juicy tender chicken breast with a prune and garlic confit enhanced the excellent fuller bodied red wine. The chef showed his skill and creativity in the pairings. Such an enjoyable evening!

We've been to Eno Vino a few times and have always felt it a wonderful dining experience. This visit I chose the tacos and they were wonderful! If I had known how they tasted, I might not have had a prior dish and ordered TWO of the taco dishes. (And, yes, I ate them all myself!)
The service is wonderful, the food is delicious and the atmosphere is one that lends itself to fine dining and even with a crowd, it feels cozy.

Alway a delicious and special evening at Eno Vino. Downtown is fun but west is equally tasty and was the first place we became hooked on. Relaxed and cozy, great service. We always order prosciutto bruschetta. Tried Wild Salmon and short rib pot stickers. All were exceptional! Plus Ancho Chile brownie dessert for fun.

We have enjoyed many meals at Eno vino over the years and the food and service is always excellent.
All the dishes are flavorful and savory...prepared with consistency. The wine selections that are offered are outstanding ...and the option of ordering a glass with a small carafe for a second pour is appreciated. The atmosphere is typically busy, but the noise level is low in the dining area...nice place to relax. Seating and tables are comfortable although sitting position is a little low if you are under 5"8".

The food menu and wine list offer a nice variety and high quality good. Our server was attentive. The downside is that the tables have grooves routed in the tops that, unfortunately are full of crumbs and the detritus of previous diners. During the entire meal I wished for a small vacuum.

Rated a 1 for food as we did not order any. We were there mainly just for the wine, wine flights to be exact; in which we were told 6 cups per flights upon reservation. But the restuarant really only offers 3 per flights. Not big deal! My partner and I found us a little disappointed after being seated about 20 minutes, waiting. The service was fine but over the top, as in the waiter and manager or owner (i forget who he was) was constantly coming over to chit chat and asking questions, I believe for the fact that they had sense were disappointed to begin with. It made it hard to have a full conversation with the persistent "service", not to mention the ambiance was great but the music was also over top loud which did not correlate.

Server was great: friendly, attentive, knowledgeable. Food was good, not amazing. We liked about half of the 8 choices we made - and the cheese plate was (and should always be) a winner. I would go again, but they definitely have room for improvement on some of their menu items. Get the mini tacos. Our bottom pick, all four of us say avoid the calamari fries; the lamb empanadas were sub-par; the fries are, well, fries; the tuna tartare lacked something, but you don’t need to skip it. This restaurant as very loud at 7 pm on a Friday. If you are with someone who’s hard of hearing, it’s a problem; we asked for a table that seemed like it would be just a bit quieter, but were told we could not be moved.

Did the 5 course Valentine's dinner and although the food dishes were decent, I really did not care for the restaurant's choice of wine pairings (with the elite wine flight). The second flight selection was a Rose that was almost undrinkable. In the future I would rather purchase a wine from the menu instead of allowing the restaurant to choose the wines. I was surprised that the server did not really know the wines.

Three of the meal courses were exceptional, but the beef course was overcooked and rather bland tasting. I will return to Eno Vino, but will not return to a special event as I felt the service was not as good as my previous visits.

We have been to Eno Vino Wine Bar many times, and as usual were treated quite courteously. This describes both the host and our waiter. The food was satisfactory, although we thought we remembered items that we did not find on the menu. Our greatest concern was with the noise level. Admittedly, the night was a busy one, with all of the tables occupied during our time at the restaurant. Nonetheless, we had difficulty carrying on a conversation with one another -- across a small table.

We would not hesitate to recommend Eno Vino Bar to friends, but might caution them against a Saturday night reservation.

We hadn't been to Eno Vino in years, but tried it on a recent Friday night. Most of the food was good - bruschetta was a stand out. Two dishes were terrible - potstickers (cold, gummy, filling was dry), and braised brisket (tough, well done, square of meat - implausible that it was actually braised). Service was okay. We will probably try the downtown location, but not this one again.

Eno Vino (West) was delightful. Small plates were all most unique. After Old Fashioned Cocktails at the horseshoe-shaped bar, the wine (Cava for me) hit the spot. Hannah, our server, was fantastic. Awesome spot.

Once again my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Eno Vino. It seems you can't go wrong on any of the food options. Some are excellent, others thoroughly outstanding. The sauce on the airline chicken was memorable. The short rib potstickers had amazing flavors and the mushroom ravioli so delicious.
These are small portion meals, but it works for us. We love gourmet food but don't want to go to a high end restaurant and pay ridiculous prices. Here you can try various gourmet foods and, although pricey, you've walked away trying a variety of delicious flavors.
Even splurged on dessert this time. Those we didn't share! I had the creme brûlée and hubby had the bananas foster. Awesome! I'm still swooning and the meal was two days ago--

I’ m actually more enthusiastic about Eno Vino west than my 4 stars. But this last time it was incredibly noisy (630-830 on a Thursday evening and the service was pretty slow. Our server, while very polite, wasn’t able to answer several food and drink questions. I’ll certainly be back ... but hope for a bit quieter and a bit more attentive care.

The “Hannah’s” were excellent - service was prompt, friendly, discreet, and seamless. As usual, the sesame tuna and the flatbreads were stellar; the apps here are as delicious as their presentation. Anthony’s welcome is as warm and convivial as the restaurant’s vibe - he stops by each table throughout the evening making you feel as if he is entertaining in his own home. Love this place!

Great choices a lot of times when you order tapas you go away hungry, not here. The Airline Chicken is fabulous, center cut filet is very flavorful. You look to see what others order at other tables and say trying that next time.
