Great place to unwind after work

Met some friends here after our conference day ended, to enjoy a glass of wine. The vibe and atmosphere is very cool. The service was friendly and the wine selection is excellent. Would return on a future visit to sample sake and sushi.

I work in the epicenter but had never been to Enso before and decided to go for lunch for my girlfriend's birthday and it was the best place I could have chosen. The atmosphere is great, our server Chris was great and knew probably everything you could possibly know about the menu and gave us great suggestions on what to... More

Wonderful selection of sashimi and sushi. Staff is knowledgeable. The bar area is interesting and they have an area with dining room chairs that is very comfortable!

I don't usually write reviews like this, but I must make an exception in this case. I can't remember the last time my husband and I were so disappointed with a dining experience. The waitress we had was a rare combination of being not only completely clueless about the menu, but also having a bad attitude to boot. Our main... More

Good service very nice atmosphere and some of the most over priced below average sushi I have ever eaten. I have eaten in nyc , la, Hong Kong and Japan where the sushi isn't this over priced. Do some simple research.....look at the menu....average of over 18 dollars for a roll? Please... And it was just average at best. So... More

It was average-I don't know what possessed this New Yorker to try sushi in Charlotte. When you've had this best it pales in comparison. The fish was fresh, but had no taste and the rolls looked flimsy and small.

Loved the variety of specialty rolls. Quite tasty. Didn't quite love the prices...but at least the rolls were tasty enough to not make you feel like you wasted money.
