I wasn't impressed with my recent visit. We had a tuna tartar app, it was very fresh and very good. Two cups of mushroom soup, these was very good, but portion size was just a tease. It wasn't unilt the main entrees is where it started to go down hill. I had Lobster fra diavolo, with squid ink pasta, it was OK , but not OMG outstanding. The other entree was grilled sword fish, which was so salty it couldn't be eaten. They offered a new piece of fish, however by the time it came out I was done with my Lobster fra diavolo, I tried to wait but it was getting cold, so my date ate by herself. And the second piece while not as salty was still undesirably salty. The Flour less chocolate cake dessert was OK. For the price of this meal, everything should have been outstanding!

Excellent ambiance and service. Professional staff makes your dining experience memorable.
Food was interesting, but could have been tastier. My pork loin was tough and chewy. I would recommend Eno Terra.

The staff is always first rate and welcoming. They make you feel special. The food is authentic Italian and you can taste the freshness of the local ingredients. I especially love the cheeses.
I’ve never been disappointed at Eno Terra.

We started with drinks at the bar. Jamie was excellent, friendly, informative, and helpful. And the Manhattan made with the whiskey aged in the small cask was excellent.

Dinner was also excellent. We really enjoyed the Salumi & Formaggi (cheese and meat appetizer), although the amount of cheese was really small. We also enjoyed a half portion of the Zitoni as an appetizer - it was rich and delicious!

We had the Flat Iron steaks, cooked perfectly with an delicious combination is Shishito peppers, escarole, carrots and onions. We also enjoyed the Braised Veal, Mushroom Tagliatelle. Both are highly recommended.

fun time on New Year's Eve - one suggestion, for the tables that will be at the restaurant for the strike of midnight, need party hats and noise makers!!! A small bit of festivities, however, it was a lot of fun due to the wait staff and diner fabulous due to our friends in the kitchen.

Now that one of our other favorite fine dining restaurants in Princeton has closed, this is at the top of our regional list. On our most recent visit, we went for New Year's Eve, when Eno Terra was offering only a special four-course tasting menu. The restaurant was packed, and service was spotty and the pacing of the meal was more than a little problematic. But the first three of the four courses were terrific. The octopus starter with squid ink was a knockout, and the short rib main course was deliciously seasoned and succulent--though the advertised side of parsnip puree was in short supply. Only the dessert disappointed; I had a fruit crumble that was almost an afterthought (we literally thought they might have run out, and made a new batch at the last second, accounting for the fact that the consistency and flavor profiles were off).

We always have a great meal at Eno, meaning that the food is reliably fantastic. We have eaten here many times. New Years Eve was very busy (not surprising), but they did not seem to be prepared for that. Our server was semi-attentive and there were mis-cues that could have been easily avoided. We were served the incorrect entree (finding out later that it should have gone to the table next to us) and never received one of the four courses in the prix fixe menu. They did compensate us 10% for the missing course. The food was delicious; the wine was superb; and our dinner was not ruined by the mistakes.

I always find the food at Eno Terra to range between very good and excellent and tonight was no exception. The service is much more variable and we find that dependent on how crowded the restaurant is. Tonight the restaurant was crowded, but not packed, and the service was excellent. It is a lovely restaurant when the service is like that.

We really enjoy the combination of the restaurant's modern architecture and decor and the European/Mediterranean menu. The Italian-themed appetizers are wonderful, and the careful attention of everyone from the servers to senior management lets you know that they care that you have a good time. (The manager shook our hands on the way out and thanked us for coming...) Very appealing place. A little expensive, but definitely worth it for a nice night out in the Princeton area.

My husband and I ordered the bronzino- $60.00 to share. The whole fish was placed in the center with our server saying- "Enjoy!" No dinner plates , no filleting until my husband flagged down another server- fish was very poorly filleted- my plate was filled with tiny bits of fish and bone- whilst my husband had a beautiful piece.

It would have also been nice if the server suggested we order the bottle of wine instead of the carafe option...

Usually this restaurant is top notch- it was Christmas Eve- but there were empty tables...

We scheduled our Christmas Eve dinner here having had several excellent dining experiences. This meal was somewhat disappointing. All of the seafood was overcooked. Even the shortribs were somewhat stringy. The service from the waiter was acceptable but nowhere close to previous experiences where the servers took care to pace our meals appropriately. The front desk didn't make any effort to recognize that this was a holiday meal. It was still a good meal but didn't come close to our expectations.

We shared a special Christmas Eve dinner here with our family. Everything was excellent, from the drinks to the food, but the hospitality was outstanding. We felt like family between the attentive wait staff and our host, a distinguished gentleman, who I assume was an owner or manager. On his periodic visits to the table we shared memorable conversation about life, art, and food. He was charming and the experience of dining in this restaurant was truly memorable.

We hadn't eaten here is a while and were looking forward to it. We had lunch on a Monday and the food was hit or miss, but nothing was outstanding. This is a lovely space and atmosphere, but the food average. The ricotta gnocchi were tough and heavy, a chard dish was sent back due to the use of spoiled greens, a fish special was tasty. Service was a touch slow and the bill had a significant error.

We've been going to Eno Terra for a long time. The food is always good, the service is excellent, and the servers are always friendly and helpful. On our most recent visit, the server was exceptional. (We've never had a bad one).

The menu is somewhat limited, but it covers all the bases. The portions are realistic for normal human beings and always well prepared and beautifully presented. I love the grilled octopus appetizer.

On our most recent visit, we mostly had specials. My wife had lobster bisque which she found really good, and she's spent a lot of time in New England. She also had a halibut main course which was better than she expected. I had the mussel appetizer from the menu, just to try something different, it was excellent. The crostini that came with it was a perfect match. My main course was pork loin which was beautifully prepared and presented with traditional cooked greens and fingerling potatoes... and it tasted good too!

Our server was very knowledgeable about wines and recommended a Sicilian white that was perfect with our meal. Their sommeliers are all excellent and very helpful and friendly.

The bottom line...stope reading this and make a reservation!

 (San Francisco)·Dined on December 16, 2017

Several issues with our meal:
1. salad leaves were wilted and not fresh.
2. we ordered parmesean as part of the 'piccolo' platter but somehow were given two other cheeses instead.
3. flat iron steak dish was supposed to have 'red wine jus' but there was no jus on the dish. Instead there was a little chopped shallot and parsley-- was this a substitution?
4. we waited a *VERY* long time for our entrees and were not told why.
5. Halibut was overcooked and rubbery.

This is an expensive restaurant, and entrees are in the 30 dollar range. At this price, I expect a high level of food coming from the kitchen. I've been here several times and overall, it is very uneven. Sometimes the food is lovely, other times dishes are overly salty, salmon is undercooked [raw inside], lettuce for salads isn't fresh.

Went for an anniversary dinner with my s/o, it was both of our first time attending. Tables were a little small and our waitstaff was snooty; it was clear that we were not regulars from the way we were treated (they were preoccupied with tables that came after us of older and better dressed individuals, distinctly got the impression they felt i wasnt going to tip, so dont waste time, had to ask to have plates cleared, refills, etc). However, food and alcohol was fantastic.

This was our third time at Eno Terra and we were looking forward to our dinner as previous meals had been excellent. I ordered scallops and they arrived luke warm at best and the roasted vegetables that accompanied them arrived cold. My partners meal also arrived warm instead of hot.

We were seated upstairs which right away was a turnoff. The ambience is downstairs. Upstairs was cold and empty. Very disappointed. Lamb meatball appetizer very good. My son had the NY Strip steak special - for $55, did not wow any of us that tried it. Tasted like any other steak. No seasoning, no topping, disappointed. My scallops were good with cauliflower puree - but the roasted cauliflower trip were under cooked and cold. My husband liked his dinner - can't remember it. Wine was good - but pricey.

Overall for $350 with tip for 3 people - no desert, no coffee - one bottle of wine and a couple beers. We would not go back for a special occasion. I will stick to business lunches for this place.
