Too crowded for pandemic times. Didn’t expect tables to be this close to each other and basically full to pre COVID times. Service was slow and lacking last night. Not the typical friendly and awesome service. Great food. Great wine recommendation. Will continue ordering but no plans to come back to eat at the restaurant.

Just overall not a good experience. I requested some changes to my food and they did not change a couple of simple things. Very dark restaurant and the staff is very busy and quick to leave once your order has been made in.
The food does tast amazing but not the right atmosphere

Food was great as usual. Service was better this time compared to last. We make reservations on open table and it seems the restaurant does not get our specific requests for a certain table. This is the 2nd time this has happened that we did not get the table we wanted. The hostess told us to call rather than use open table.

Anastasiia was amazing as always. We tend to get her every time and she is top notch! She never forgets anything and is attentive without being intrusive. Food was delicious. We tend to get apps and pizza
As they are the best there. We got mussels, scallops, meat and cheese board and Happy Hour pizza and wjne for $25. Every thing was cooked perfectly and so tasty.

Service
Was impeccable
By Anastassia and again the food great. Highly recommend this hidden gem in Bellaire/West U!!!!

The fish was very small, overcooked with no flavor at all. The artichoke appetizer was a hit. The ravioli with veal was very good. The service was adequate but still pretty slow. All in all we had a nice time but will not hurry back.

The restaurant seemed to be a work in progress. Of the 4 entrees, 3 arrived together and there was a delay for the 4th. The Frutti di Mare included a bad, unopened mussel. The food for the most part was good, but the Bolognese sauce was bland & reminiscent of Spagettios. Come dessert time, again one was delayed without explanation.
Final concern was a table of 5 arrived adjacent to our table. Not one person had a mask from the moment they arrived & the staff did not say a word to that party.
An overall disappointing experience.

This is our first below average experience at Enoteca Rossa. We had reservations for outside and requested a specific table. The group ahead of us in line was yelling at the hostess, not wearing masks, so they got the table we wanted. We were then seated at the outdoor picnic table. The waitress (Kelly) would not read off what was included in the specials, only if we “requested” it. So we knew there was a prime rib special, but not what was included. We thought this was strange customer service. The steak was great but the broccolini was cold. We didn’t get any bread until halfway through the meal when another waiter noticed we didn’t have any. We still plan on going there as the food is usually great. We are hoping for a better experience next time.

Food and drinks were great. We especially liked the seafood specials. The service was a bit slow but when our server did come around, he was great. They opened up the doors to the patio and it was appreciated for those of us concerned with the pandemic but trying to get out slowly. Our booth had a shield between the booth and that was awesome!

It’s expensive. Specials are good but 2x menu prices.
Pastas are good, but not outstanding. Cocktails are high priced at $16 for the atmosphere. It’s a nice enough little place but service and price do not create the right value.
La Griglia does a much nicer job, offers bruschetta and biscotti gratis.

Service was absolutely amazing! The food however was average for such elevated prices. The pizza crust is very good but the options don't sound enticing. I had the diavola. There was pepperoni on the pizza and it wasn't even a listed topping. The cheese course they have listed for their appetizer also had items that weren't listed. It would have been nice if all of my party ate meat but some didn't so it wasn't ideal to get the extra food.

We sit outside now due to the pandemic and our table was fine. Our waitress was excellent as always. I ordered the pizza which was good except for some of the crust was burnt. My husband had seafood and said it was delicious. My only beef is with some of the other customers (Driving high end cars) who chose not to use the valet. Come on people, the valet is trying to make a living! We overtipped the valet because of this. He kept thanking us profusely. Made me sad!

The charcuterie board was good; the salads were lack luster and i would not order again ( the table tasted: caprese and spinach salads. Pizza was promising and i would order again. Pasta was not as flavorful as i would like but i ordered the simplest pasta dish so as to taste the pasta. therefore i would go back to try another pasta. Salmon main dish offered was overcooked.

A management change has transformed Enoteca from a weekly favorite to a place to avoid. The kitchen has suffered tremendously and the new management could not care less.
