We come here on every trip to Charlotte on business. The service and the food are very good. I tried the Maryland sushi roll. It was exquisite. Thanks again Enso. Our server Dane was brilliant.

We've had the pleasure of eating here on the 17th. Our waitress Lee was such a delight. She was courteous and very attentive to our needs. The sushi was the best in town! And the music and ambience was perfect. It really sets the tone for the whole place. I will be dining here more often.

Save money!!! Buy a house by the ocean and catch your own fish!!! The ceviche was a massive disappointment... The service at the sushi bar was non existent also. To be fair though we did order a sushi roll which was delicious.

Again, they came through. Their staff gives exceptional service. The seafood is the best, and the sushi - hmmm - you just have to try.
