Enzo's on the Lake is the perfect place for an evening of cocktails, fine food and wine, delicious desserts and very special hospitality.
In 1980, Enzo's on the Lake opened as a lovely secluded lakefront restaurant, built in the style of an Italian villa. The restaurant is dedicated to the idea of simple yet sophisticated cuisine: family owned, crafted with love. The freshest fish, meats, fruits and vegetables that can be obtained are woven into a menu that emphasizes a unique culinary heritage. An antipasto bar welcomes you to the excitement of the dining room overlooking the lake. There is a full service european style bar, private dining areas for meetings and parties, and lakeside gardens and dock.
We look forward to serving you!

25 years later I decided to take my Valentine back to the restaurant where we dined together for the first time as a couple. The owner at the door was very gracious and welcoming, our server Moises was attentive and accommodating to requests, dinner overall was just FANTASTIC. The buzzing athmosfere of the room was just an add on to the great experience. Great to see Orazio was still there. Highly reccomended.

Once we parked everything was perfect. But I have to say that I was frustrated by the parking situation. I have a handicap placard and there used to be two handicap parking spots. The valet attendants were set up in one of them and when we mentioned we were going to park next to them in what used to be labeled as a handicap spot, they said we couldn’t. They told us where to park, which was all the way out by the wall near the road. When we left, the formerly handicap spot was empty. According to the Americans with Disabilities Act, there must be parking near the building for handicapped customers. I have been a customer at Enzo’s for about thirty years and this was disappointing.

Having said that, the service and food inside the restaurant was wonderful.

Enzo's on the Lake was everything and then some. We arrived about 20 minutes early and the owner recommended to have a drink at the bar and take a walk and she would come looking for us when the table was ready, which we did and strolled through the garden which led out to the deck which overlooked the lake. Perfect setting for a relaxing pre-dinner drink and great conversation.
Dinner was awesome, Moses our server was professional and pleasant to talk to and wished him well on his studies to become a CPA. Ambience of the restaurant was quant and romantic and simply stated: "perfect".

Enzo’s is our absolute go to restaurant. The food is amazing, service impeccable (we always request Susan)!
The antipasto is our favorite, freshly made daily, platter of assorted cheeses, veal & mozzarella roll ups, olives, Italian
meats all served with homemade crusty bread! We ordered Lobster & Shrimp in a cream saffron sauce. Fish & pasta cooked perfectly,
served table side! Dessert, the Italian Wedding cake, absolutely delicious!
Let’s not forget the incredible lake view! Stunning!

If it was possible to give 6 stars, this restaurant deserves it. Quant restaurant. Enjoyed a cocktail at the bar with Pete the bartender waiting for my guest. He was terrific! When we were seated, our Italian waiter was fantastic. He took care of everything and made for an enjoyable evening. Oh, and the best part.... the food was incredible! I strongly recommend the Bucatini. A couple of the regulars suggested it and it was fantastic. Will always have dinner here whenever I’m in the area!!!

We were sitting in a room with a brick tile floor and a high ceiling. The ambiance was okay, but there was a door leading to the rear directly next to our table. People continued to go in and out the door throughout the evening and each time the door was opened a rush of cold air would come in. As a result, we were cold during much of the dinner. One of us ordered Chilean sea bass, which was extremely delicious. Another ordered the papparadelle, and it was very, very al dente. I ordered the carbonara, and it was good, but I would not say it's the best carbonara I've ever had. The bread and the wine were good. Service was excellent. It was getting dark when we arrived so I cannot comment on the view. For a higher priced dinner I think there are better places, but I would likely give Enzo's another try.

Experience was pretty good overall, however the service was a little slow. Our server was very nice, but seems a bit too busy at times. The only real disappointment was that they couldn’t figure out how to cook a filet rare. They tried twice. They did end up comping the steak at least, but it’s not that hard to cook a steak rare.

Our waiter was very good but the food was not what I expected. I ordered the lamb chops which was plainly grilled, no flavor. My husband had the black angus which was just “eh”. Sadly I was not impressed. Should have ordered pasta. Probably next time.

My husband and I celebrated our Anniversary at Enzo’s and we completely enjoyed our experience. It started with the owner who greeted us in Italian - which was so awesome because my first language is in fact Italian! She of course had no idea of that which was great because it showed us she was genuine and not just putting on a show. The bar area was cozy and welcoming. The wait staff very attentive! We were seated in a lovely area, overlooking the lake... very romantic! The food is out of this world fantastic! Because I am Italian, I consider myself to be a little bit of a snob when it comes to “American - Italian” cuisine, but Enzo’s was a delightful surprise indeed. The entrees are not the usual “spaghetti bolognese” or “chicken Marsala” - they were truly Italian dishes I was used to finding on the menus in Italy - how refreshing! My husband and I plan on returning to this wonderful restaurant- and not just for our anniversary! Grazie.
