Eno Vino Wine Bar and Bistro Ratings and Reviews
Amazing Valentine's Day dinner that was executed perfectly! Food was paired so well with wines that brought out the rich flavors of the food. Six courses and lots of wonderful personal touches all along the journey. So happy we came to celebrate here! As former restaurant employees, our expectations are always high and Eno Vino delivered! Thank you for your care!
We were there for Valentines Day at the later seating. The staff was extremely professional. Since everyone arrived at once, they were very good about taking drink orders and peoples coats while they were standing in the bar area. Seating was very efficient. Our wait staff were very friendly and we never felt rushed. The five course meal was outstanding and included extras such as ahi tuna, chocolate covered strawberries and champagne that weren't even on the menu. It was a great experience and we will be back.
Eno Vino is truly one of Madison's best restaurant and hands down the best restaurant on the West side of town. The food and service are consistently excellent, as are the cocktails and wine list. If you enjoy "tapas style" dining, you will not find a better place to eat in terms of food quality, presentation and value.
We came to Eno Vino for Valentine's Day. I'd request d a table near the fireplace and was pleasantly surprised to have them place us right next to it when we arrived. While we were not aware they had a special 6 course meal, we strapped in and prepared for a big meal. We chose the wine pairing option for one of us, since we enjoy wine but can't hang like we used to. Every course was awesome & seriously delicious. We were stuffed by the end & very happy. Service was great too, including a visit from the new manager Austin. We'll be back for many more date nights.
Eno Vino is always our go to for a great meal and wine, or just cocktails and an appetizer. We have never been disappointed. You don't have to go for a special occasion. Their tastings on Wednesdays are wonderful and fun, as well. Sundays and Mondays feature half price bottles of wine, which make it nice to try something you might not normally be willing to spend the money for.
Our favorites are the seafood bisque- rich and delicious with crab and lobster meat, the filet with goat cheese potato pancakes, and the sea bass and scallops in a buerre blanc with verjus sauce. I do wish they would have more salad selections, as they only had 3 the night we were there. The spinach salad I ordered, had a lot of very salty seasoning on it, making it hard to enjoy. Otherwise, another perfect meal!
One of our Madison favorites! Love trying a new dish each time we visit and we are rarely if ever disappointed. Favorite was the roasted mushrooms from last year's menu (please bring those back!). Great wine and cocktail list -- Perfect for date night or to share several plates with a small group.
I went here before a movie on a date night. Service was excellent. The waitress explained everything very well. Food was absolutely amazing. To start we had the risotto. It was fantastic. Then we had the special, which was the filet, and it was perfect. Everything came out looking like food art and it tasted just as good as it looked. I did think the crowd and noise was a little much for quiet dining. I definitely would recommend to everyone. We will be going back again soon.
We really enjoyed our experience here. All employees provided great service and were very knowledgeable about the food and drink. Sometimes tapas restaurants servings are so small and the cost per plate very high, that it becomes an expensive night out. At Eno Vino, the food was not only very good, it was also generously portioned; meaning we found some very good values on the menu and didn't break the bank. Good cocktail menu & incredible wine list!
The food at this tapas restaurant was delicious! The combinations of flavors and colors combined with artistic presentation made for a delightful dining experience. Our server (wish I remembered her name) was helpful in selecting dishes. The flow of flavors and the pace at which the dishes were brought to the table was perfect. There were four in our party and the size of the dishes worked well with our group. The beets, green beans and chicken skewers were favorites. The only disappointment was the creme brulee. Too much raspberry and not enough vanilla creme. Will definitely return!
We went here for our 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th anniversary and we loved it so much. We hadn't been since kids life the whole drill. So it's our 7th anniversary now and we made reservations had to wait 20 minutes to be seated. The martini list was less than it used to be and the food was not near as good as we remembered it. The truffle fries however were spectacular. Our waiter seemed like he was wanting to get rid of us and lacked any personality at all. Over all I think it's safe to say we'll go somewhere closer to home next year considering we drove over an hour to get there.
New menu choices have improved since last fall. Skip the beets with apple cider glaze- WAY too sweet, ...or order without glaze.
Seared tuna-excellent, Wild Salmon-excellent, Seabass and scallops-excellent, Braised Brisket- do not miss this one!
Typically decent service, however this night our server was inattentive.
Excellent food and service. Food is uniquely prepared with combinations of flavors meant to compliment each other making for a mouthful of yumminess! and it's timed to perfection. Small plates for the whole table tasting or your own meal. Great wine selections available by the glass. Loved the espresso martini for dessert.
Perennial favorite for a special occasion. Numerous small plates to share, though we rarely share, preferring our own choices. Good wine list, which changes periodically. Food is well-prepared, and wait staff is skilled. Appropriate timing of courses. Can be noisy if crowded.
We always love Eno Vino. The tapas style is very fun and the food is terrific! The server did not seem to know her menu very well, but luckily we knew it well! Sunday night was especially fun because it is Happy Hour all night. Too bad our server did not advertise this to us. She lost out as we all would have ordered a night cap.
We enjoyed this restaurant but finding it was a challenge. It is tucked next to a Panera in a strip mall and at the time we arrived the sign was not lit so we wandered around looking for it for quite a bit.
As it turned out we were seated next to a couple who were quite loud. When they left the ambience was pleasant enough.
The food was excellent ...we enjoy the tapas style so it was perfect for us. The server was pleasant but whipped through her original explanation about the restaurant so quickly it was difficult to follow. However, thereafter the service was fine.
It was just okay. The food purports to be inventive but isn't. Same old flavors you'd see from the corresponding cuisines. Food also isn't done very well. Just bland unless you use provided dipping sauces that are over the top. This place doesn't do well w subtlety. Ordered a drink, way too sweet. Server was friendly but, she blamed a delayed drink order on the business of the bar, which we could see and wasn't. I also don't like it when they place blame on another. Just apologize and move on
I'm obsessed with this place. Brought my dad from Los Angeles and he was so impressed with the food and service. I tried fagoie gras for the first time and it was divine. My favorites are the sautéed green beans, ahi tuna tacos and the center cut filet. The flatbreads are really great too the steak one is amazing. I've had almost all of them. My favorite wines are the indaba blend and the Bordeaux. The staff is amazing here. My dad is never impressed with servers and he loved the guy we had.
We were in town for a couple of days and enjoyed our first time there on Friday night that we went back again on Saturday. We were unable to get a reservation Saturday night because it was the last minute, but when we called it was suggested that we eat in the bar, which we did.
I can't remember what all we had--but some of the things were the cheese platter (we had 3 Wisconsin cheeses--the platter was huge), foie gras, tacos, and lamb empanadas. All were excellent! Our servers both evenings were wonderful, and both were very good at making suggestions for food and wine.
If we're ever back in Madison, we will definitely return.
PS. Because Friday night was our first time there, our waitress brought us each a bit of champagne to start our evening.
I thoroughly enjoyed my dining experience at Eno Vino. We started with a round of cocktails, my husband, son and I should have taken pictures of the beautifully crafted cocktails, but were too busy exchanging sips and drinking them to bother! Once seated, we started with a cheese plate, all of the extras on the cheese plate were delicious. The truffle fries and mini tacos were also very tasty, I just wish we had room to sample more. We will be back again this time the Ahi Tuna will be one the menu.
It's one of our favorites. But this time, friends of ours were visiting from Minnesota. We took them there as it was also Coaches for Cancer night. All 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed it. When the couple comes back again, I know they'll want to go back to Eno Vino. Go there if you haven't!!
