Friendly staff/Great sushi

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.

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

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

This place is rad. Very cool decor and atmosphere and the DJ that was spinning was great. Our waitress was helpful and friendly and made good suggestions. The bottles of sake were half price so we ordered a few and they were awesome. The rolls were fresh and really tasty. We recommend the 007 specialty roll- so good! The prices... More
