I loved this restaurant's food!, and our server was excellent. She proudly explained about each dish we were interested in. The dishes were outstanding. 5 friends and I shared the fried goat chees (amazing), pommes frites, and cauliflower. my seafood spaghetti with preserved lemon was fantastic Unlike most pasta dishes, it did not need parmesan chees to finish off the dish: the flavors within the ingreidents were plenty. My friends enjoyed the octupus, the halibut and the ricotta gnocci.

ALL fantastic

Bar - welcoming staff and professional service. We had a drink and a good focaccia while waiting for our table
Dining - sticky table, definitely needing some in depth cleaning. Salty, very salty Speck (which by the way it is not a smoked prosciutto but a pork belly and a registered trade mark, IGP, in Italy), fine grained finocchiona, that should be coarse grained, both difficult to forget and upsetting.
Grilled bone-in short ribs, weird taste and get ready to fight against them the rest of the night. Chestnut Pasta with boar and pappardelle with pork, both fair.
Impeccable service though a bit too wordy. It was our second time at Ecco, and it is probably our last. Sadly, because we hoped that a fine Italian near by was very handy.

A new restaurant for us and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We had a group of seven celebrating my husband’s birthday and it was a jolly party. Wonderful food, excellent service in an unusually and wonderfully quiet and aesthetically pleasing space. The birthday treats of gelato and wine were most appreciated. A superb time was had by all!

We love Ecco and this evening was no exception. After returning from Basque country, our level of tolerance for dining out and not being served the freshest ingredients was low so the only place we considered was Ecco for dinner in midtown. The charcuterie items were highlighted by smoked swordfish. Great food, lovely atmosphere and excellent service. Atlanta has great food and chefs but rarely gets the dining out experience right...Ecco always delivers.

Never disappoints! My husband and I enjoyed an evening out with his family. Knowledgable friendly staff, innovative dishes, great wine selection. Only complaint was from Grandma who wished her Moscow Mule came in a copper mug. We will be back soon!

My wife and I ended up getting a night by ourselves unexpectedly and decided to go for a date night. After looking at all our options we decided on our favorite spot, since we hadn’t gone in a while. It was a great experience as always. We had our favorite fried goat cheese but skipped on the gelato. We’ve been going to Ecco Midtown for years and it always has been a great experience.

Been here many many times over the years. Not a good experience. Service poor and discourteous. Order wasn’t right. Didn’t check on us after the rush had passed. Had to ask for drinks and food. Not a good experience overall.

Pros. My lamb risotto was awesome. Sons steak was v good.

Cons. Wife’s short rib appetizer as a meal was iffy. For high end spot a better wine list - esp by the glass.

Issue. I bought myself a v large gift certificate as 20% bonus. 2 of last 3 visits closed for private dinner. Can’t even have a drink at the bar.

Net. Ecco is good. the Lawrence is a better overall choice.

Only one valet on duty and cars backing up on the street. Originally sat my party of 6 men in a booth that would have been too cramped but they quickly accommodated us with a table. Our Server Andrea was great - helpful and attentive without being intrusive. Food was good all around except the desserts which were not quite as good as the meals .

The decibel reading in the restaurant at 9pm on a Wednesday was 87. (I use SoundPrint on my phone). That's very loud and is likely to cause permanent damage to employees with long exposure. Our table of 4 found it difficult to converse without raising our voices. My throat was quite hoarse by the end of the evening. My mild tints was roaring within 10 minutes in the room. I highly recommend the food. In warm weather I've eaten on the terrace and been able to have 4-6 person conversations. Inside, I think a table of two can probably lean in and hear each other comfortably enough. I've been inn the curtain-wrapped too for large groups and found it impossible to talk to anyone other than those immediately next to or across from me. With everyone else at the table doing the same the noise level rises uncomfortably. Sadly, I have a hard time recommending this to anyone who wants to have a conversation with more than one person.

We especially enjoyed our servier Lauren Bacall. She was very knowledgeable about many foods and other non-related subjects as well. She was also funny and very loyal to the Ecco brand. My friend who was with me is from Germany and he said it was the best restaurant he has eaten in that served European style food. Very good quality and slightly unusual recipes.

Ecco has a frenetic vibe and a dark dining room that captures the essence of pretentious, but don’t let that put you off. We have been here several times, and it is very good. The service is always friendly and knowledgeable, but there have been times when attention gets challenging because they are also ALWAYS busy. Food choices are quite diverse and appeal to a wide range of palettes. From pasta to steak to meat-and-cheese plates, Ecco has a creative menu and offers new items with each visit.

So visit the bar, have a drink, and dine in style at this too-chic-for-Atlanta hot spot... and don’t call them “French fries”, but rather “pommes frites”, which are fantastic by the way.

Delicious food incredible ingredients. You can easily have a lot of different small plates and apps for two and get out under $70 or go full entree and be around $100 for two

We were visiting Atlanta and wanted to dine at a restaurant in Mid Town. The Ecco looked like it had a good vibe and good reviews. The staff were lovely but the food was only average in each of our three orders. There are much better restaurants out there!
