Great wine list. Superb bruschetta, tuna tacos, and Thai green beans. Seasonal menu surprisingly had a lot of meat since it is summer. This visit this menus was short on vegetarian items. The salads were uninspired but overall, this is a consistent, high performing Madison restaurant that never disappoints!

I had mistakenly set the reservation for a day early but the hostess handled the issue quickly and courteously. My colleague and I were seated right away. The small plate and wine happy hour choices are delicious and a good value. I'll be back again soon!

Food and service were excellent. We ate outside which was very pleasant even though it is in a commercial maul. Sound level outside was fine. We have found inside dining noisy. Had problems with Open Table making a reservation. It said it couldn't complete the reservation and then didn't work at all after that. But we called and got a table at the time we wanted.

Eno Vino has been my favorite Madison restaurant ever since it opened. I brought two guests there for dinner the other night after raving about how excellent the food and wine are. Much to my surprise, it turned out to be a disappointment for all of us. The crab cakes ordered by two of us to share were too bready and soggy. (we complained and it was deducted from our bill) I had a flat steak, ordered medium-rare. It was terrible; tough, had fat and gristle, and no flavor. My $9.00 merlot was also disappointing. The waitress seemed to keep disappearing and was difficult to locate when we needed service several times. The food at the restaurant has been gradually going downhill in my opinion, which is extremely disappointing. If I do recommend the restaurant to friends from now on, I shall warn that there are nights when it is good, but also nights when it is not up to par.

To my pleasure, Eno Vino honored my seating request. Some restaurants have not, even when it clearly possible for them to have done so--especially when a reservation was done in advance. Once such restaurant did that not once, but twice and were snarky when I pointed it out. Nor did they respond to my remarks when posted on their social media site. I will never be back there. Eno Vino delivered gloriously in seating, food quality and presentation and wines. It was quiet enough for us to have a conversation in soft voices and neither be heard nor hear the nearest other table. However, it should be noted that it was slow the night we were there and very few indoor tables were in use so I cannot assess if that would have held true on a busier evening.

Eno Vino is a tapas place. Ther were 4 of us and many of the choices had 4 or more pieces-- goo for sharing. We enjoyed the seared tuna, chicken skewers, green beans, and shrimp tempura. There is an extensive bar. The rose' was nice and they were donating $1 for each glass to komen cancer research-- so we had several😋

We always talk about going there but we never do, even though when we have been there (years ago) we had a very good experience. My wife and I had not been there in probably three years and now I wish we had made more a point of going, because it was nearly perfect. The food was spectacular, the wine was great and not too pricey. It was just a wonderfully casual yet rich experience. It will not be another 3 years before we return.
Happy Hour Experience
My brother, boyfriend, and I had reservations for 5:00. We were exited to enjoy the happy hour specials. The hostess sat us in the dining area right away and failed to mention that you had to sit at the bar or in the lounge to get the happy hour specials. I remembered reading about the stipulation in a different review so we asked our server if we could move. She said we could but we had to take our water glasses with us. Not a big deal. Once we sat down in the lounge, it took at least 20 minutes to be acknowledged. Not cool. That was annoying, but the waitress we had ended up being fine. We had a few round of drinks and shared the Thai chicken skewers. I recommend the Key Lime Martini--it's delicious. The skewers were also very good but the wontons that came with it were spectacular. My boyfriend had an old fashioned drink, which he liked. I also tried a cocktail, I think it was the Red Stiletto. It was watered down, wouldn't get it again.

Food, wine and service were excellent. The waitress was friendly and helpful and the wine list was good. However the background noise made it hard to hear conversation. Perhaps my hearing loss contributed to this. Overall it was good experience.
Recently changed menu; lots of choices
Enjoyed the opportunity to sample a variety of items. The selections were all prepared in portions that worked well for sharing among our table of four. Overall satisfied with the offerings; a bit disappointed by the crab cakes.
Eno Vino is a wonderful spot for anything from an intimate date night, to a gathering with friends. It's a romantic and comfortable atmosphere, and you feel very relaxed. The service is great, and the staff is very friendly. The selections of drinks and food is impressive, and the presentation is even better. Everything was delicious and prepared just as we'd asked. It is a tiny bit pricey, but rightfully so, as everything is quality. I'm looking forward to my next visit.
Great food/wine pairing dinner
We enjoyed a delicious Wine and Tapas Wednesday evening -- unusual wines from Italy and delicious creative small plate pairings which enhanced the wines and were excellent. Outstanding friendly service as always. It is always a pleasure to spend an evening here.
Very enjoyable wine & food pairings on Wednesdays.
The Wine and Tapas offerings on Wednesdays are a lot of fun -- excellent wines paired with delicious chef creations, often previewing future menu additions. New wines to try, new small plates, always delicious.
Excellent for a date
The service was exceptional, and the food was very good. We had the cheese board and chicken skewers, which were great, and for desert, bread pudding, also great, and creme brulee, which was good. The ginger mojitos are highly recommended.
We have dined here many times before and it seems to get better each and every time we visit. The food came out surprisingly fast, the staff was attentive yet gave us plenty of uninterrupted time, and the aesthetic and ambiance of the whole place is wonderful for a romantic night out, a celebration, or just a change of scenery from most places to eat in Madison.
First time diners
My parents were in town for a visit and we were looking a restaurant with a great ambiance and interesting menu. Eno Vino definitely fit the bill. The atmosphere was wonderful and our server took her time explaining the menu and how it works (since it is tapas style). Overall great experience.
Eno Vino! Best Dining Experience EVER!!!
My Husband and our Neighbors decided to dine at Eno Vino after we had experienced Tapas dining in Cancun. The ambiance was casual romantic with couples and many groups of 4. Our server Ross was very friendly, attentive and knowledgeable about both the food and wine list. The food was absolutely excellent. Beautiful presentation, variety of choices and very very tasty! I will be back!

This place is great from the servers to the manager. Everyone goes out of their way to make your evening perfect. Dining options are unusual and excellent with an almost endless variety and menu changes a few times a year
I was traveling with people that have been to Eno VIno before on their travels to this area and make it a must go to on their trips back. I really enjoyed the experience. Loved the food - tried the Bruschetta capocollo and then the To Share of chicken, beef fillet, vegetable flatbread, and pork belly (Least favorite of mine but that's me, not the food). The bread was delicious also. We had leftovers with the four of us. If I get back to this area, I will definitely go to Eno Vino again.
Food excellent, but timing not good
This is the second time at Eno Vino where the entree came while I was still eating my salad. I want a leisurely dining experience if I'm going to pay big prices. It seems like the order is put and filled without regard to the pace of the diner. I mentioned this another time, but it is still happening. Better expediting is needed.
Poor Service Ruined Fun Night
First, we had a reservation for 7:30 and were not sat until almost 8. Then our server made many mistakes. Forgotten drinks, forgotten ordered food items, forgotten requests. It felt like we had to keep reminding her for things. Then for the things she did do, it was a long turn around time for her to come back. The restaurant was also very cold and drafty. I've had other good experiences here, but for the price point, I expect the service to be top notch. Given the number of mistakes, I expected the waitress or manager to do something, but nothing happened.
Great food, fun date night
Excellent list of wine and specialty drinks. The menu is a variety of small plates, and it was really impressive how well-executed they were (given the size of the menu). Service was great even on a very busy Friday night, and the food was excellent. We really enjoyed it, and will definately go there again. Lots of fun for a date night, and would also be really nice for small groups.
