First, let me say I did not eat at this restaurant. I stopped in for a nightcap at the bar on my way back to the hotel. The facilities are very attractive and the service is good. However, when I received the check, it was for two drinks (correct). The bill showed each drink cost $12. Two drinks, $12 each... More

From the moment I walked in to the moment I left Enso my experience was top notch. My Husband and I had Steamed Pork Dumplings, Crab Wonton, and Fried Calamari for appetizers. We had 007 Specialty Roll, Buzz City Specialty Roll, Spicy Tuna Specialty Roll, Braised Kalbi Short Rib, and Spicy Chicken Pad Thai for main entrees. For desert we... More

I went to Enso Thursday night for Sake and Stilettos. The food was wonderful, best sushi in Charlotte. Our waitress, Ahrissa was also wonderful. She helped me pick out my roll, as I was really indecisive. The roll was great and I am glad I took her recommendation. She was very attentive for the rest of the meal and also... More

Mid downtown epicenter sushi spot. VERY UPSCALE, definitely recommend birthday parties or just a place to go for a date. The inside is to die for, the staff members a generous and sweet. The drink specials are good.

My friends and I went for Sake and Stilettos. Each of us loved our dishes! Our server Ahrrisa, was very personable and attentive. She was able to recommend many different sushis based off of what we liked. Will definitely be back again!

After being seated outside, we had to wait an additional 15 minutes before a server came. Other than the slow service, the food and drinks were above average. The crispy spring rolls were good. The sweet sour chicken was wonderful. The spider roll was average. The restaurant has a great location and is nicely decorated. The overall vibe is very... More

We traveled to Charlotte for the Imagine Dragons Concert. We were looking for a restaurant close by Time Warner Cable Arena to grab dinner before the show. Our hotel recommended Epicenter next to the TWCA. We stumbled upon Enso. We were impressed! The atmosphere was amazing, the service impeccable and the food...wow! Apparently, Enso has a partnership with the local... More
