A little overpriced for the quality of food, and a weird music choice. But overall a good experience.

I wanted my wife to try Eno Vivo's regular menu for her BIRTHDAY!

When I made the reservation, I was not informed that they would only be serving SET menu on the Valentine's day weekend. And none of their regular menu items was available. I was very very disappointed. I just hope that Eno Vivo could do a better job communicating.

We're so sorry that our Valentine's Day Menu wasn't communicated to you before you arrived! We do our best to let all of our guests know about special events and dinners ahead of time, and are very sorry that the message didn't make it to you. We did have a limited version of our normal Dinner Menu available in our Bar and Lounge areas over Valentine's Weekend, and we're very sorry if our staff didn't communicate that to you once you arrived. We hope you give us another chance sometime soon!

Gorgeous view! The food was great. Wine pairing was delicious. The tables were a bit cramped but the view is just simply amazing. I would highly recommend coming here, especially if you’re just visiting Madison or even for a date night.

We had a great time with the Valentine's Day fixed menu, and a great table by the window looking out over the Capitol Rotunda and the square. Ordered the wine pairing, and the service got ahead of the pours at one point - I finished the beef course before the Bordeaux arrived, but I don't care! That pheasant was the best prep of pheasant I've ever had. Beautiful. Perfect. The beef was pretty good too! It isn't going to set the culinary world on fire, but the kitchen was on point. So was the bar. They had a lot to deal with, but we still had a great time. Thanks to the staff again!

We did their Valentines day prix fixe 5 course meal and did opt for the standard wine flights. This was a busy night for them and we recognized that. However the arrival of each course and each wine was a bit like a forced march. We had 2 hours for our meal and, in the end, finished in an hour and a half. The food was delicious, well-prepared and interesting (the broccolini a bit too interesting, seemed to have some sort of tree cross as well, it was woody... 😊). Our servers were great but they appeared on their schedule and not ours. Agsi, I understand the military precision, but in the end this was a $300 dinner with tip, so maybe chill just a bit. Maybe come and suggest the next course will be coming rather than brandishing it like it flew out the kitchen... 😊 We'll be back on a more normal, hopefully more relaxed evening. The place and views are spectacular and we did enjoy our meals!

I thought out overall experience was very good. Window view of the Capital was fantastic, but had to wait a little for that table vs middle of the room table. Nothing you can do when you have a very loud/potentially over served guest two tables away who was SUPER loud. The 3 small plates were very good and I love the wine list. Great choices!

We really enjoyed our evening at Eno Vino! Our knowledgeable waitress helped guide our decision making with food choices and wine. I appreciated getting to sample unknown wines. The food was delicious starting with the bruschetta and choice of toppings to the main courses (fried lobster tail and lollipop lamb) and ending with dessert....the best vanilla bean cream brulee. All courses were accompanied with various types of wine. We will be back!

We had a Christmas Eve dinner and the restaurant was very crowded. Although we felt cramped together with the tables very near each other which prohibited a private conversation, the food was very good. Our server was attentive and friendly. The drinks were good and the view of the Capitol was lovely. I always recommend Eno Vino.

My husband and I were here to celebrate a big anniversary. I did put that on the reservation which was made in advance. While I do not expect any freebies, etc, it would have been nice to not be seated at a tiny little 2-top so close to the other tables on all sides of us, I could have literally touched their food by just extending my arm. You cannot have a private conversation. We could hear everything that was discussed at neighboring tables.
Our waitress was excellent throughout the evening so no complaints there. Then the food. We are foodies and had a certain expectation for the food. The menu itself was diverse and offered many selections although the prices were on the higher side. However, with the exception of the risotto, the dishes were just okay. "Okay" in the sense that as I'm writing this I struggle to remember anything else we had. Nothing was terrible - just not memorable. While we didn't leave feeling disappointed, we probably won't go back any time soon.

The small plate, tapas concept really works at Eno Vino, where each plate is thoughtfully and perfectly prepared. Our server was excellent, visiting our table frequently enough to be helpful even though the restaurant was very busy. The view of the State Capitol of Wisconsin makes the experience exceptional! This restaurant is not to be missed for anyone visiting the Madison area.
