Overall, Ecco was a great spot for a dinner date. The drinks were spectacular, ambiance was perfect. Only thing was the entrees could have been a little bit better, they weren't anything special, but the prices and the drinks/bread/calamari app/cream puff dessert made up for that. Would go again!

Overpriced food with mediocre service. Waiter did not know the difference between wild and farm raised salmon. Had the lobster risotto, which was a bit "soupy" and the lobster had a "metallic" taste.

interesting drink selections, please try the ale aged in bourbon casks; entrees are generally very well done, except the duck confit risotto had rendered the duck meat into the texture of jerky. It should not have been served.

Comfortable environment, very good cuisine, and friendly staff. The location in East Boston is surprisingly easy to access-- first right exit out of the tunnel from downtown and there you are, with easy free parking in the back. Blue line would be easy also. This was our first visit, and we consider it a real find.

I have always had dinner at Ecco and love the choices. First time for Brunch and was extremely impressed. The service and quality of the food was awesome. Lobster Eggs Benedict was Delilah. The lobster meat was fresh and a great amount. The Yogurt Parfait with fresh berries was huge. French Toast with carmilized bananas was perfect. Wait staff was excellent. Great Brunch for an amazing price on a holiday was a delightful experience

My friends and I had dinner at Ecco last Saturday night and thoroughly enjoyed it. I should say from the outset that this is one of my favorite restaurants in Boston, hands down. This is Back Bay- and South End-quality food, absolutely delicious, presented beautifully, with easy (and free!) parking, tasty cocktails, and friendly, knowledgeable servers, but without the high-end downtown prices. What's not to like?! To be clear, it's not "cheap eats" by any means; it's just that you would easily pay 20-50% more for this kind of meal in the trendier parts of the city -- and that's not even including the additional expense of valet parking (or a parking ticket) that you'd incur in those other neighborhoods. I had the grilled pork chop, perfectly cooked medium as I requested, which came with a creamy risotto and some grilled asparagus. It was yummy. One friend enjoyed the Caesar salad and the chicken piccata, and the other raved about his tomato and ricotta salad followed by the pan-seared salmon. We shared the tiramisu and a chocolate cake special for dessert, and we all left full and happy!

The food was all outstanding. Service, including recommending a wine we really enjoyed, was great too. Only thing we'd change: turn the music down a few levels. While the song choices were more relaxing this visit, it was still pretty loud...and last visit the choices were not so relaxing and made conversation difficult (even in a relatively empty room that night).

We came to Boston from New York for my boyfriends birthday. We searched for a good restaurant and saw the reviews for this place and decided to go. The food was absolutely delicious, one of the best restaurants I've ever been to. From the first bite to the last, I savored every bite. We both had the sirloin steak but chose different sides than what was on the menu and there were completely okay with that. We went with the parmesean truffle risotto and grilled asparagus. So many awesome flavors. We only waited like 20 mins for our food and the sever was absolutely wonderful. Lights were dimmed so it had a bit of a romantic setting. My boyfriend is a chef himself so he's very picky and he also thought the food was incredible. Well worth the 30 dollar plate for sure. I would highly recommend.

I was at Ecco for Valentine's day, and the food was really good. We had Pan seared salmon with vegetables, and honestly it was great. The only downside is that the staff were outnumbered and the kitchen was running food too slow. We waited 45 mins for our dish.

Hi, was my second time in Ecco I really like the restaurant, decoration is really good and drinks are good too.
My husband and I decide spend our first Valentin's days as a marriage couple in Ecco and overall the experience for me was okay, I know Valentine's Day is a busy day but I was so upset about the way of the Manager she was so rude from the beginning with a couple next to us in the bar and then with us! Really? The manager! When I ask. Was really sad, her aptitude, and the way she talks.
I am not sure if I want to come back soon.
Thanks

A wonderful dining experience on New Years Eve. Adella (sp?) our server and the entire staff was kind, prompt, and accommodating. Ordered the gluten-free lobster and corn chowder as an appetizer, which was phenomenal. For entrees my friend ordered the steak with truffle mash potatoes and veggies and I ordered the pork chop with grilled asparagus and truffle risotto. Both entrees were also gluten free and absolutely divine. The chef and back of the house did a superb job. Definitely check out this East Boston hot spot. For those driving...they have plenty of parking.

For international guests...please don't forget to to tip the bar and waitstaff the customary 18%-20% while dining in the US. XOJ
