We were able to reserve an outside table and enjoyed sitting on the street but not too close to traffic. Salmon was excellent- just the right size portion. Friends enjoyed cauliflower entree and pizza. Wait staff was attentive and friendly. Overall very good experience!

I've always loved eating indoors at Eduardo's, but recently was able to sit on their extended outdoor area -- it was beautiful! Fantastic wine list.

I tried to reserve a 5:00 table but none were "available" so I reserved a 4:30 table.
We arrived at 4:30 and the restaurant was empty !! And it was accepting walk-ins and never got crowded.
I would have preferred to dine later but Open Table did not coordinate with Eduardo's and I was given the wrong information.

The outdoor dining is a little raw -- in the shadow of a Walgreens, surrounded by concrete, on a busy-feeling street. The indoor dining is really nice but I wouldn't recommend the sidewalk/patio seating.

I've been to Eduardo's Enoteca many times in the past and it was always good so I was a bit taken a back by the sheer number of problems on my most recent visit.

First, they seemed to be understaffed and it took a while to take our order, but the wait for our simple salmon entree was WAY too long.

Once served, the salmon was only lukewarm and the portion size was tiny. It tasted fine though.

Unfortunately, the restaurant had only one server and one cook on duty. Therefore, it took about an hour to get our first course served. The entire lunch took two hours, which was about an hour too long. The server was extremely apologetic and nice, as it wasn’t his fault. He was constantly hustling between about 8 tables of patrons. The salad and appetizer were good, but the pasta entrees were disappointing. The dessert cake tasted a couple days old. I hate giving less than positive reviews, but I’d rather be honest. We’ve dined here before with better results, especially pizzas to go.

All Food was good except lemon spaghetti a little rubbery. We were disappointed as we were the only table between two outdoor tents. Seemed like it was added without thought to ambiance.

I was underwhelmed by my Enoteca experience. The pasta was only passable, service clumsy, and wine list less than one would expect from an enoteca. Of course, this could all be due to the Pandemic, but my pappardelle bolognese was blah and my husband's pasta with shrimp had about six tiny shrimp in it. No bread came with the meal, we ordered some burrata and it was excellent.

Eduardo’s is top notch on every level. In addition to everything else that is EXCEPTIONAL about the establishment, they now have the perfect balance between respecting COVID restrictions while not being over the top. Absolutely nothing was less than perfect.

Romantic, dark little place. Spicy kale Caesar IS spicy but we love it. Enough to share. Homemade pasta with meat always excellent. Salmon with tomato, farro and herbs was very disappointing. Wish waitress had explained the dish and that it was cold. Just not to my taste. A great secret. Don’t tell anyone.

Hello, I am happy to hear you enjoyed the majority of your meal. Tabbouleh is a traditional Mediterranean salad, which is why it was served cold. We apologize for any misunderstanding regarding your meal and hope to see you again soon! Best, Byrd Jasper General Manager

Love this place!! Wine and drinks are good, food is excellent (got the prosciutto and arugula pizza for the 1st time- so good!) and the service was great as well. We were the only ones in there late Monday night, and the guy was very attentive and friendly. Awesome spot overall!

I've always enjoyed Eduardo's, but this was the first time I visited during the pandemic. They do a great job with tented outdoor seating, heat lamps for each table, and all other precautions. Of course, the food and drinks are just as good as ever!

We were so excited to try this cutie place next to where we live in Gold Coast- let me tell you we were nothing but disappointed. The servers were very inattentive. We sat down -outside mind you- for 25 min without anyone coming to our table to greet us/ ask for drinks. The tent they have outside was open on 2 of the 4 sides so wind was blowing in. The heaters did not even work that they had at each table. After finally getting our drinks I walked inside asking for our tab because we did not want to sit outside and freeze. They seemed super annoyed when I asked to leave- I clearly explained it was absolutely freezing & service was below average.

We also called before hand asking if they were doing indoor dining (they were allowed 25% capacity) & they were super rude on the phone.

Just overall terrible experience. We are super bummed.
