This was my second visit to this place. No doubt, the food is the best here but service was really miserable. The waiter came after 15 mins after we entered the restaurant to take the order, food arrived after an hour. Few items were missing from the order. I ordered for crunchy crab and miso soup but my soup never... More

Though we six had reservations for two weeks we were still seated across from the restrooms and adjacent to the entrance to the kitchen. This had to be the worst table in the restaurant. The food was good and though the majority of the wine was Italian, it was adequate.

Hands down the most amazing Asian fushion food in Charlotte, and all surrounding areas! The Pad Thai is second to none, the drinks and service are TOP NOTCH! If you have a special event or simply just need your sushi fix - GO HERE! I've been hitting this place up regularly for at least 5 years and lived in Charlotte... More

The atmosphere is nicely set back and the food/service were up to par, the only thing is that they don't seem to keep an eye on your water glass.

We have been waiting to check out Enso for a long time now so we had some high expectations. We made a reservation before a show we were seeing at Belk Theater and the location was great. They were very busy as it was a Friday night and we got a table not far from the door and it was... More

We ate here for dinner a few weeks ago and it was okay. The food came out pretty fast and every employee you came across acknowledged all patrons. The decor is nice and it was reasonably priced. The cocktail menu can use a little work as can the bartender. The mixed drinks weren't the best. It seems they push a... More

I am not a big sushi fan but this was absolutely wonderful. I enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. Was well worth the trip.

My husband and I ate here before a show a few weeks ago and it was just ok. This is the 3-4 time we've eaten here and it has great food but I don't feel like it's the best sushi in Charlotte. There are definitely better priced and better sushi places in town but this one has the best location... More

No complaints here. Sashimi was really good. Appetizers were awesome, especially the Mediterranean sashimi. Service was good. Easy walk from the Ritz.
