About Enzo's on the Lake

Enzo's on the Lake is the perfect place for a congenial evening of cocktails, fine food and wine, lavish desserts and very special hospitality. Whether you are entertaining for business or pleasure, having a birthday celebration or just a romantic dinner for two, we will do our best to keep you satisfied.
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. The freshest fish, meats, fruits and vegetables that can be obtained are woven into a menu that emphasizes a unique culinary heritage and diversity. An extravagant 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 the lakeside gardens where many weddings concerts and gatherings take place.

We look forward to serving you!

Consistently high quality and great service. Everyone enjoyed their meal, as always. Only suggestion I might make is to give the customer a heads up as to the price of specials. Had one of the most delicious veal chops we have ever had, but when we saw the price of 2 of them, kidded the hostess that we might need a mortgage to pay for it.......;-) !!! Our bad for not asking while ordering, but it did not affect our very positive opinion of Enzo’s and we’ll return again, but ask the price of specials the next time.

Enzo's never disappoints! The food is always excellent and the service is outstanding. If you haven't ever tried it, make a reservation! It's a great choice. Homemade pasta (ravioli) and delicious meat dishes. Great wine list, delicious desserts. It's truly a gem. Enjoy!

 (Miami)·Dined on November 18, 2017

I drove up for the local Renninger's Antique Extravaganza four hours from south Florida. My wife and I stayed overnight and we decided to try Enzo's on the Lake.

Well they must have a lot of regulars every night because for a restaurant on "the lake" we were seated at a table where you would never know it and right next to the service area.

The food was very good and our server was extremely nice.

But you might say it "left a bad taste" and will try somewhere else my next trip to the area.

We have been to Enzo’s dozens of times and this is one hard restaurant to beat. The creativity of the specials, the quality of the food (every time), the amazing wait staff (most of whom have been there 25-30 years!), the view ....but most of all the incredible food make this restaurant nothing short of amazing. If I were running or starting a restaurant, I’d sneak in here and figure out how they do it and copy everything.

Came here for the second time on Thursday. The bartender was super friendly and chatty as was the hostess. The food was amazing. I had the flounder. Hubs had the zuppa de pesce. He loved his also. Great service. Not to over attentive or in your face. Was just right. We will be back before Xmas.

Was really looking forward to this restaurant but unfortunately it fell way short of expectation. Went Saturday night, it wasn’t very busy but felt like they were rushing us out. Food was very average and just ok. Ordered the filet medium rare, it was way over-cooked (charred) and had no real taste.

 (Orlando)·Dined on November 5, 2017

We loved our dinner at Enzo's on Saturday. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and the food was excellent. If you go, be sure to get the antipasto plate - this is NOT the typical olives and dried meats kind of plate. All the items are cured or prepared in house, and the plate offers a wide variety of proteins and veggies. We loved it. The carpaccio was also very good - delicate and tasty. Both our dinners were very good, as were the coffee and cake we had for dessert. It is a little noisy, but mainly just the buzz of people having a good time. We found it added to the experience.

GREAT food and wonderful service. They have an outdoor gazebo/lake/garden which for our party was wonderful as we could take pictures beforehand and afterwards. They have cozy rooms to so our large party (13) was able to sit in a room off the main dining area and not feel like the center of attention. But it would also be great for a couple that wanted a more private cozy atmosphere. The entire staff was so kind and treated the whole party wonderfully! We will go back again!

While the view is nice you can’t really get a pic because of the amount of tables. Food was not plentiful. Got 7 rather small raviolis with minimal sauce. Usually I need to take home food! The red sauce tasted like ragu. The presentation and wait staff were fantastic! It was quite pricey too

Had high expectation for dining here , based on prior recommendations. When we first walked in you could smell a musty odor as we walked to our table. The view over looking the lake was very nice. My wife had the beef short ribs which were tender and juicy. My lamb chops were just ok, and the pasta and chicken were good as well.

From the moment we drove into the parking lot the friendly valet service kicked off our evening. We were immediately greeted by a server and then the owner welcomed us. We literally had no wait. We arrived 10 minutes before Our reservation and were seated immediatly. Our dining experience was amazing and the food was simply out of this world delicious! Natalie our server and Hunter were very attentive to our needs. They both provided great silent service and were extremely friendly. We will return. Thank you to the entire staff for making this a memorable experience. Thank you.... Rob n Lynda
