Enolo Wine Cafe Ratings and Reviews
My friend and I participated in Restaurant Week here. The food is amazing! Wonderful flavors and portions. I don't eat pork and my friend I came here with didn't eat meat, so when our appetizers had both dietary no-nos in them, the staff was very considerate and offered a substitute dressing for me, and offered a soup without meat in it for my friend. Plus, if you get there before 6 PM, you can get a $6 glass of wine to go with your food. Space is a bit loud and it was difficult to determine where the host/hostess was when we came in, but I would definitely come back.
There were 3 of us and they sat us at a 2 top that was very crowded. We ordered a couple small plates at a time to accommodate. It was very noisy - at times I had to strain to hear the person across from me although the table was very small. The food was very good though and the wine was delicious.
Super loud inside, especially for such a small place. Service was pretty slow, and our server didn't really have much commentary about certain dishes and wines except "it's good". Highlights of the meal were the truffle fries, burrata and sage gnocchi (I could eat this forever). Ravioli was drenched in oil and didn't have much flavor and was pretty chewy. Shishito peppers with the kimchi aioli was pretty weird and I couldn't eat more than a bite.
I've been to Enolo a couple of times before and it was better than I remembered! We took some out of town guests here and they were blown away. The wine selection is not only large but the price point is great. The food was absolutely fabulous. Our server was amazing, I wish I remembered his name. Overall fantastic experience. Cannot wait to come back!
My only complaint. The restaurant said they did not have my reservation. This was odd as it was booked and confirm they open table. The restaurant was empty, so they could accommodate our LARGE party. However, this type of non-communication could have been detrimental! please make a better effort to coordinate reservations with the restaurant !!
Enolo always offers a lovely time for friends or dates to enjoy wine and dishes. A group of my classmates and I had a mini-reunion there and we had a fantastic service! I highly recommend trying their bruschettas, they offer a wide variety between sweet and savory that will definitely suit your tastes. I will continue to visit here with my friends!
While the food was very good, every. single. glass. of wine in the 2 flights I had tasted like it had been opened for at least a day, and therefore wasn't very good. For somewhere that calls itself a wine bar, the wine should be the star of the dining experience, not the food.
If I went back, I'd only order bottles, never again by the glass.
The inside is a little small, but nice. The decor is pretty to look at between conversations. Our server seemed to be the only one working that Tuesday night. He did very well, all things considered. The food was good. I went for the grilled cheese...not your average grilled cheese, by any means. de-lish!
We stopped in for a light meal Thursday evening. At first there weren't a lot of people in the restaurant, but it was quite noisy...there was a group of women. The biggest problem is that the server speaks so quietly that you can't hear him over the noise. However, the food is delicious, particularly the cheese board.
