Our waiter had a bad day with the tray falling but that was not an issue for us! The food and service were both excellent and the whole experience was surprisingly good for everyone in our group. Enjoyed the cheesy distraction of Bruce Lee movies projected on the wall and the "little bit too loud" DJ. Can see how others... More

My husband and I came here on the Fourth of July and it was pretty empty (unsurprisingly). The waitress was wonderful, though, and super friendly. We ordered 3 sushi rolls that were amazing and then the seafood lo mein, which was also delicious. It is a huge place and the ambience is really relaxed too. I would definitely come again... More 

Thank Angela P
Management response:

Stopped in for an early dinner, a lil unsure as we walked in. However as things turned out it was really good. The sushi is priced a bit high. The sea bass was excellent and beef rib was very tender and excellent. The server was ok not as good as it should be with the high prices Would recommend as... More 

Thank Suzy41
Management response:

Suzy, I'm happy you found the beef succulent and satisfying! Though I can understand how the price of our menu can throw some off, we feel it reflects the quality of our food. Next time you stop by, let your waiter know you have some reservations about how much you're looking to spend. We'd be happy to work with you... More

Tried a variety of appetizers and small plates. Great menu variety and had decent sushi. The atmosphere is inviting and had a lot of different groups on a Saturday evening - couples, larger groups, girls night.

Wish we could have stayed for dinner, but only had plans for drinks... Bar has a great late night atmosphere if you are not into clubbing or EDM, etc. Enso is dim and chill; it could be romantic, as well. Great for getting together with friends, couples, or your significant other.

Thank bbbdlg2006
Management response:

You get us! While I'm a little sad you only stayed for drinks the last time you came by, the team and I appreciate all the kudos regarding our ambiance. Stop by for some sushi sometime soon! Take care, Ashley Morris, Sales and Marketing Director More

Nice atmosphere, pretty good sushi, fun area to party in. Nice variety on the menu and great service. Had a table of 10 and the server took it in stride. Food was very good. We shared lots of sushi and appetizers. Appetizers a little on the skimpy side for the price but very tasty.

While in Uptown Charlotte, we chose to eat at Enso. And what a wonderful choice! Located in the Epicenter and an easy walk from the hotel, we felt as if we made a perfect choice. Nice ambiance with wonderful service. Plenty of drinks to choose from or have a specialty drink from the bar. We split six specialty rolls with... More
