I just moved to Madison and had my family in for a visit. The experience was absolutely amazing. The view is breath taking of the capital building. We split the green beans, Brussel sprouts, lamb meatballs and goat tortellini and split a bottle of Skyfall merlot. Our server, Maddie, was amazing and made sure we were taken care of the entire time. I will definitely be being my out of town guests here.

It's hard to beat the view, ambiance and food. I do wish they could do something with the acoustics as it was really loud. It was hard to hear the servers presenting the food. Also, the wait staff at a wine restaurant should be trained in the proper pouring of wine. The wine was opened and sampled as one would expect, but then our server proceeded to split the entire bottle evenly between the four of us and then whisked the bottle away. This happened with two bottles. I would expect each glass to be filled with about a 2 oz pour and then the remainder left at the table for everyone to take more if they wish.

Had a great time with my wife, and my parents visiting from France. Our waitress was very nice and patient as I had to translate the menu to my parents.
The plates were delivered staggered which was perfect!

This was our 2nd time here. It was even more delicious than we remembered
The service was pretty good considering how busy they were
It’s all small plates and we had a variety
Bruschetta was particularly good and featured soft thick toast that didn’t crumble and fall apart when you took a bite

The ceviche was outstanding!
Lots of small pieces of fish and veggies served in a champagne style glass
All very artistic and delicious
Especially recommended for a special night out, although considering the style and preparation of the food, we think it’s a good value

Overall a good experience - however I would not got back and would go to the Middleton location instead. This is mainly due to the noise factor and restaurant layout. The restaurant is so noisy in fact that I could not hear the server or my date. The tables were very cramped and I felt almost philosophic. Maybe this atmosphere is fun for some, but not for me

We had an amazing experience at Eno Vino Downtown. I had requested a table with a view of the Capitol, and we had an absolutely gorgeous view from our corner booth. All of the food had so much character and taste, and the small plates gave us a chance to try several different foods. We can't wait to come back and try more!

So happy we tried this restaurant while in Madison! The high-level afforded us beautiful views of the Capitol building and sunset, each dish was artfully and meticulously presented, everything we ordered was delicious, portions were generous for a tapas restaurant, and service was efficient, professional and knowledgeable. A truly memorable dining experience!

We went to celebrate our anniversary. We picked the place for the view. They sat us at a large post virtually blocking any view and then lowered curtain to block the light (and any view my husband had).
For $20 the crab cake was small and mushy - no lump meat at all. We had 2 bruschettas - the salmon and mozzarella. The salmon was good, the other had virtually no cheese and was soggy. The online menu said there was a discount on food before 7 pm. We didn't get any discount. Our service was slow. 4 slices of bruschetta, 1 mushy crabcake and 2 glasses of wine and a lousy view -- $55. Thank goodness we didn't pay $13 to park. We won't go there again.

The bar was terrific. The food was really excellent but a little pricey which is why I didn't give it five stars. The waitress was excellent.

We took a trip to Madison and booked a table here. We started with a bottle of wine, Conundrum, it was great.
Followed with 4 choices of bruschetta-all were excellent; the salmon and prosciutto were favs. For our second course, we had zuppa Toscana soup and a roasted beet salad-great flavors! Finished off with lamb meatballs and a crab cake dish, both were yummy. Our server was great, gave us some tips. Nice view, we went for an early dinner.
Very hip. Tables a bit cramped, but otherwise we enjoyed ourselves and would return.

Being a "west sider" we have had many more dining experiences at the original Eno Vino. The location, view, and ambiance are stellar at Eno Vino Downtown. I would still have to say that the food is not quite as good downtown as it is at the Westside location. The menus do differ between locations but still, seem to have the "staples" like calamari fries at both. Given the fact that we frequent the westside location more often the change in the menu is refreshing and appreciated. When looking for a downtown location for a nice dinner this will continue to be one of our top picks.

We spent our first anniversary together here. It was our first time dining here as well and we went on a recommendation from a friend. We were not disappointed! The service, food, and VIEW were excellent and while it isn't an inexpensive meal, it was definitely a good value. I will absolutely be coming here again when I get my next opportunity to!
