 (New York Area)·Dined on January 14, 2018

Honestly kind of disappointed. We went here for our anniversary dinner, and while the food was pretty good (I recommend the seared tuna, but the crab cakes were a let down) and the wine list was nice, the ambiance was non-existent in the dining room area. First of all, SO DRAFTY! They placed us by the door initially, and as they don't have a double door to catch the chilly WI air (not smart...), there was a terrible freezing breeze. We asked to move farther in to the dining room, and while it was still drafty, it wasn't as bad as by the door. We watched as 3 more couples asked to move from that same table we were initially at as well! Clearly it's an issue. It was also not nice to be able to see in to the kitchen - they have no door, so you can see in very clearly to where they are cleaning dishes and all. Not romantic or appealing. In short, the food was decent, but overpriced for what it is. The wine list had nice easy-to-drink selections, but nothing special or spectacularly interesting. The ambiance was pretty poor in the dining room (to be fair, the bar area did look cozier). The service was really lovely, though! Just a huge bummer about the drafty, boring and off-putting dining room.

Most dishes were extremely salty. Eno Vino could lower the sodium levels and fat levels and the place would still be as busy as it is now. Maybe even more.

Everything was pretty good except our waitress. She took quit a while to give us menus, then just as long to take our drink order. Our food was mostly delivered by other wait staff, whom we wished would have been our waitress or waiter. We will go back, but to the downtown Eno Vino. We don’t want to take a chance on getting the same waitress. Very slow & lacking a personality.

One of my favorite restaurants in Madison. It never disappoints. They’re always minor changes in the menu the keypad unique but the old standbys are always delicious too. My only slight complaint is that it Can get really loud. The acoustics could use some improvement.

My husband and I love to come here when we don't want a heavy meal, but an assortment of delicious options to share, and some quiet time together. Add the great options for wine, beer and spirits and it's the perfect date night!

The tuna tacos are bite size. Way smaller than I had ever had before. Then the liver (fois gras) was also too tiny; one bite. It's not a sharable plate, and it's not worth 16 dollars! It was disappointing because of the size! And it came with 1 piece of toast drenched in butter.
The wine was good and the truffle fries were a good portion for sharing. Not sure about going back...

My companion and I were both impressed with the ambiance and the service we received from Sharon.
We started with an order of bruschetta, the tenderloin, Mediterranean, Apple with fig jam, and smoked salmon. We both found all four selections to be outstanding.
Our "main courses" were the braised belly and the braised brisket.
Both meats were perfectly cooked. The tomato relish and sauce served with the pork were fantastic as were crispy brussel sprouts served with the brisket.
We had a wonderful dining experience.

Great creativity by Chef Jacky, especially on Wine and Tapas Wednesdays which feature wonderful pairings of flavors and wines. Don't miss those tastings! Outstanding and great value with 3 courses paired with excellent wines. Great service always, especially from Ross.

Eno Vino is a fun place to go to with friends. Food is good with a ton of variety. Staff is extremely young without many adults in charge and it showed. I would return, but I'm OK with waiting for awhile.

We had a totally delicious meal. The stuffed quail on sauteed chard with a side of the butternut risotto was one of the most delicious meals I've ever had. Perfect balance of flavors. Looking forward to ordering that again.

The food was excellent. We happened to come on a 1/2 bottle of wine day so the wine was an exceptional value. The cheese plate was excellent and the quantities very generous. One tip: be sure to ask that your small plates be served staggered unless you want your food delivered all at once. Sadly that was our experience which defeated some of the enjoyment of small plate dining.

The food was phenomenal and so was the service. We happened upon this restaurant on OpenTable and it is one of the best finds. Small plates allows you to enjoy many of their menu items. We ate the risotto, bacon wrapped shrimp, spinach salad and the bruschetta. Could not have been a better date night. We will make a special trip from northern illinois to enjoy Eno Vino again.

Eno Vino is my favorite restaurant! It is a great place for clients because of the interactive energy, and extensive menu. We loved the Champaign-tini, green beans, mushroom ravioli, sea bass and scallops and of course the filet! I am grateful that you have black sambucca on the menu, as not many do. We will be back as soon as we can!!

We chose this for a local dinner with out-of-town friends on a Saturday night. Food was tasty and the wine selection was good. Maybe we had an atypical service experience, but it took 15 minutes (it felt much longer) after we were seated with menus to get our server. We politely inquired twice during that time. I would be more understanding if all the tables were full, but they were not. Also, for a restaurant with the name "Vino" in the title the server appeared to be opening his first bottle of wine. It was almost painful to watch him stumbling. Unfortunately this service experience changed our previously good impression of this west side location.

Great selection of small plates, and always delicious. Even more fun are the Wednesday Wine and Tapas food and wine pairings when the chef's creativity shines, making wonderful tastings to go with the interesting wine selections. Highly recommended and totally enjoyable. The chef comes out to describe his creation for each of 3 courses. Excellent friendly service always makes dining at Eno Vino very pleasant.
