Beautiful dinner to celebrate friendship. The Capitol Building was stunning. Our server (who I believe was Carson), was friendly, very knowledgeable of the menu, and responsive to our request. What a great downtown restaurant

My husband and I have celebrated many anniversaries at Eno Vino on the west side and we have always had a wonderful experience however we went to Eno Vino Downtown and the experience was not great. I noted on the reservation that we were celebrating an anniversary, we were seated near a big screen TV and the door which was continually opened and left open, my husband along with other diners had to continue to get up and close the door so we all didn't freeze. We were hoping for a more romantic table but we were sat next to a family with crying children. We were told there were no table available upstairs so we stayed were we were. The food was excellent as always but the overall experience was poor. It was our first time dining out together since the pandemic started and unfortunately it was not worth it for us. We will be back to Eno Vino on the west side but I don't know that I would go to the downtown location again.

I just love this place! Lobster risotto is a must. We shared a bottle of the la crema and it did not disappoint. We also got the creme brûlée and loved it so much we got two! Great date night or place to bring family when in town

My wife and I came here for the first time and we enjoyed everything we tried. We ordered several things and were really impressed with the quality of the food and the flavors. It has a fantastic, close up view of the state capitol. We will definitely be coming back.

Great tapas place - seafood was extraordinary. View of the capital building is magnificent. Overcooked my filet by 2/3 degrees but ended up comping off the Bill. Would go back!

All in all this is great place. Everything was good, I just would love to say something about the menu. We got many plates to try and most of them were very tasty. The crispy lobster is a must! Brussel sprout dish is below par. I think that should be rethought. Also the goat cheese tortellini should have a bit more filling in it. Good cocktails awesome view! Lastly, there should be a baby changer in the washrooms or somewhere. Just a thought!

I felt rushed. Our reservation was at 8:30. When the waiter came to our table at 8:40, he told us the kitchen closed at 9! We promptly ordered. Rather than coursing out our meal, as they’ve done in the past, we were served all but one of our small plates at once! That has never happened before and was very disappointing. If the kitchen closes at nine maybe they shouldn’t accept reservations at 8:30???

The food and ambiance were great. My only complaint is that they didn't state on the menu that their flatbreads have a butter crust. I am dairy free, so I ordered a flatbread with no cheese, and realizing the flatbread still had dairy was an unpleasant surprise. It was delicious but I had to suffer the consequences later.

The food was great but the server was awful. She kept forgetting things we ordered for appetizers she only brought us one and then went on to tell us that we did not order anymore even though we had entire conversations with her about it. She just seemed very scattered and ditzy. The food was fantastic and the atmosphere is amazing.

We really didn’t have a great time. We went out for a pre Valentine’s dinner, was sat in the back corner of Althea restaurant and half our order was forgotten about so we sat for 45 minutes without anything in front of us. Our server came out asking if we wanted a dessert menu and was confused when we said we were still waiting on food saying that they must have never gotten our order after they were asking us specific questions about said order at the time we ordered. Food was also just ok. Nothing spectacular about it. We did however absolutely love the view once we got up from our table to go look at it

Amazing food, amazing drinks, Alexis was a fabulous server! We were allowed to order at our own pace, which allowed us to explore a lot of the menu. Everything was beautifully plated and perfectly portioned. I took a few pictures of our dinners but some were too good and I ate them up before I remembered to take a pictures haha 10/10 will definitely be back!

Portions are pretty small because it is Tapas which is fine. I am African American and I noticed that they sat all of the POC from completely different parties in one section away from the window view near the kitchen, which didn’t really sit well with me. We asked to taste wine to determine if we wanted to purchase a bottle and the waitress only brought us one glass. They ran out of creme brûlée. Overall it has a very nice ambiance and I feel you are paying more for the view than the actual food. I don’t know if I will go here again because it felt as if we were being stereotyped with the “black people don’t tip” stigma at first and I would have liked to be seated by the window not the noisy busy kitchen.

food was excellent, views are wonderful, and the staff was attentive. very pleasant evening out. on the down side, cocktails are on the small size for the price, and the staff was not enforcing mask-wearing when diners left their tables for the bathroom, etc.

The venue has a big city feel. Beautiful views, trendy decor and design. Food is very fresh and full of great flavor. However, with the impression of being upscale and with an above average price, I expect service that reflects the same. I've been to this location about 6 times. I come back for the good things mentioned but I've recently been remembering that I'm always disappointed with the service. Very little attention, always in a hurry, doesn't check in through the evening. Recently here twice in a month, not 1 water refill at a table of 4 for the entire 2 hours we were there. Couldn't get anyone's attention.. at one point my husband had to go back to the kitchen area to correct an order. They give an image of excellence but are lacking the service and attention that should accompany that. For an easy $150 for two...I really don't think I'll return.

We went to celebrate my partner’s birthday. Although I mentioned it in the reservation there wasn’t even a verbal acknowledgment. 😞We had drinks and the dessert fondue. The drinks and dessert was great and of course the view is wonderful.

Upon arrival my date and I were forgotten for about twenty minutes. We didn’t completely mind since were deciding on what to order. Without having to say anything, one of the managers noticed and sent a waiter to our table. She also came up and offered us a free dessert for the inconvenience.

My date and I enjoyed the food and will definitely go back again. The steak lettuce wrap special and Chicken kebabs were delicious especially when paired with the Brussels sprouts. Also, everything was hot, and fresh.
