Diner Reviews
  • "Grilled beets - superb. Burratta and peaches, excellent. Pasta, excellent. Pork special was very good, if a tad overlooked. Beautiful sauce with it. The bartender fixed a great sazerac and knew his stuff. Our waiter, Pablo, was very accommodating. We were not in a hurry, and he did not rush us. He knew the wines by the glass and recommended well."

  • "Ask for Julie or Pablo and you will enjoy the attentive service coupled with the good food. We always enjoy our visits. All of the staff there pay close attention to you and your experience and will leave you satisfied."

  • "Wonderful find; looking at the online menu doesn't do this restaurant justice. The service was excellent; our waiter was correct in each and every response/recommendation. The food was stellar, appetizers to desserts. Very nice wine selection, though would appreciate more wines by the glass. If I lived in Atlanta, I'd be eating here several times a year!"

  • "I walked into Ecco and to my surprise, it was beautiful, elegant, and deserving a prize. What a lovely space I thought (and I am hard to appease), but I knew I was sold when I ate the goat cheese. The wine list was daunting, my knowledge inferior. But the descriptions were illustrious matching the interior. My waitress Kristin knew her menu well, she made recommendations which were good I could tell. Next time I come I'd like to dine under the sky, because the grub is so good I think I could fly. Thank you dear Ecco for your attention and style, hoping I'll be back in less than a while. :)"

  • "So good, it put my wife into labor. Not kidding. Drinks (for me only) are well done. Parpadelle is a classic and steak was perfect"

  • "My wife and I decided to eat there instead of going to a show. It's very close proximity and had a great rating. Food was good and enjoyed the variety. The wait staff was fun and regularly checked on us. I would caution anyone that isn't an adventurous eater as there aren't many varieties of food options. We had the fish and it was so good and tasty. Enjoy.."

  • "The menu changes frequently, but the flatiron steak that was on there was a real show-stopper. My lobster ragu pasta was also fantastic."

  • "Amazing food and good value pricing for the exceptional quality of the ingredients. Manager took care of us initially as server was busy at a large table and talked us through the menu, made sure we had a drink and some nibbles. Pasta was so good we ordered a second plate! Very hospitable service in a buzzy atmosphere...highly recommended!"

  • "My husband I were visiting Atlanta and Ecco was recommended to us to try for our anniversary dinner. They were very accomodating finding us a seat in the bar and then escorting us to,our table when it was ready. Zac, our waiter was very attentive and very polite. We had an amazing dinner and a wonderful experience at Ecco."

  • "Fabulous restaurant with great service and awesome selection of charcuterie meats and cheeses. The food is similar as to eating on Mediterranean coast of France and Italy. Our waiter did not rush us, explained the menu well, and made sure everything was satisfactory. We visit Atlanta often and this might be our new favorite restaurant. A little hard to find because it is on a side street so use your GPS. Valet parking is behind the restaurant."

  • "I enjoyed my experience at Ecco. Initially I requested a booth, but after being seated in the bar area, away from the dining area I wish I hadn't. Our server was one of the bartenders so his attention was everywhere. The cured meat and cheese combo was delicious. Very few main dish options unless you're into pizza and pasta."

  • "As always, Ecco is a pleasure. Pablo and Julie are great to ask for and Andrea, as well as the other staff, are just awesome. We always enjoy the food and the service is second to none. Thanks, everyone!"

  • "This is a great place if you like spicy Italian. It was good but selections were slim. I think overrated is a good way to describe the food.I had the flat steak and it was very spicy and friend had pork flat steak and it was also spicy. Side was an antichoke dish with some potatoes.. The artichokes had a tin can flavor to them.. not fresh at all. Some of the food coming to tables had a funky smell to them. Waiter was very attentive and spot on. It was a very busy night and the place was full. Lots of celebrations going on at the time. I spoke with someone who said the menu changes all the time so maybe it would be better with different food choices. The location was easy to get to and parking on street or valet was available."

  • "Wanted a nice place to do a little carbing up before the Peachtree, and also someplace special to take our kids to celebrate their first ever Peachtree. We dined outside, with lovely (especially for July) weather. My wife, 10yo son & I shared the flat iron steak, the pappardelle, and the San Marzano pizza. Our 7yo daughter had the kid's pasta with red sauce. Everything was just fantastic. The wine was amazing, and dessert was truly special. We only get to come here a few times a year, and we're always sad that it's that rare every time we come. BTW, I do think this restaurant is kid friendly so long as your kids are able to enjoy a relaxed atmosphere and are ok w/ more adult foods. If not, you may want to look elsewhere."

  • "Must try the goat cheese balls...they are perfection!"

  • "Ecco was recommended by a friend. The service was great, the food overall was great, desserts were sizable and delicious. The fried goat cheese, artichoke fritters and proiscuitto flatbread were awesome! We would go again."

  • "Enjoyed another great meal at Ecco, it's a favorite place that never disappoints. Love the fun signature cocktails. We shared a tasty cured meats and cheese platter and a wood fired pizza. Topped it off with the European pastries sampler - mini pastries that offered several different flavors - perfect size for sharing. Our reservation was early (6:30 pm). About six tables seated when we arrived but by the time we left, the restaurant was full and the energy level high. Because Ecco's decor has mostly hard surfaces, the noise level rises as it fills up. Bar area was hopping. It actually was quieter and felt more relaxed at the tables outside especially since it was a weekend night and traffic in Midtown Atlanta was light."

  • "Great meat and cheese selection, good portions, nice wine list and good space. Interesting scene at the bar on a Friday after wok too. I wish I would have been more hungry as the menu looked great. The service was polite and fast but lacked a bit of......je ne sais quoi. Ecco is in the rotation and we will be back."

  • "Has great food and service ... the prices are a bite high for the plates .. its a nice change but there are other restaurants with similar food for much cheaper prices"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "This is the place if you enjoy "real" European food. Fresh baked bread with a crunchy crust and a soft interior. A charcuterie plate that is as it should be, meats sliced thin enough to read a newspaper through, cheeses with a flavor that compliments the meats as opposed to overwhelming them. A wait staff that does everything, they pay attention to the other tables, not just theirs. A chef that inspects every plate leaving the kitchen. A manager that not only will grab a plate and help serve, but also pays attention to what is going on in the dining room. A wine list divided between "old world" and "new world" which helps you quickly zero in on what you want to compliment your choice of meal. Can't miss."

  • "We had an outstanding meal. The appetizers were create - always a creative twist to them. I'd highly recommend the deep fried goat cheese as well as the roasted beets appetizers. I had one of their pastas - again wth some unexpected but absolutely delicious twists. My husband had the flank steak. Part of it was a little overdone, but the rest of it was cooked beautifully. The manager was more than willing to give hi a new steak, but we declined. The rest of the meal was so good, a slightly overdone steak tip was forgiveble. By the way, the Hostess, Sheila. I an absolute hoot! She has so many funny stories, we were tempted to invite her to sit with us for the meal. GREAT personality!"

  • "Ecco never ceases to impress. The food is incredible - the Pappardelle is wonderful (my wife orders it each visit). Our new favorite appetizer is the Pancetta-Wrapped Dates. Our waitress, Laura, is the best, a complete pro. It is obvious Mark Wilson's stellar management at Ecco is why this a great place."

  • "Ecco is one of my favorite restaurants in Atlanta and Monday was another great night! I had a friend/coworker in from out of town who wanted to go to a 'great Atlanta restaurant', so naturally, brought him here for dinner and he loved as well! We had the best server, she was very passionate and gave excellent recommendations at each course from the beginning sharing to the wine. It was a great meal, great night."

  • "What a pleasure to dine at this exceptional establishment. Creative ingredients that dance on your tongue and scream WOW. Charred squid appetizer was outstanding in taste and presentation. Disappointed that our favorite monkfish entree was unavailable that night but it forced us to try something new...the simple pappardelle entree...but it was much more than simple, we loved it. The Pappardelle entree is a must have again, next time we dine here, hopefully very soon. Thank you Ecco!"
