This is one of the top restaurants in Nashville.
The chef and her staff are masters at creatively blending favors in all of their dishes.
The serving staff is always informative and friendly.
The setting is quite pleasant and there is a small outdoor seating area.
We just love this place!

Service is slow and uncoordinated yet delivery of food is very rushed. Food came to the table before the bottles of wine were brought and opened. That’s a big misstep for any restaurant. There was no time to begin to enjoy the wine before or during the first course even though the wine was ordered initially and before the waiter returned to take the food order.

etc. is a lovely restaurant but the noise from the bartender is ear shattering. The constant cocktail shaking reverberates from all the hard surfaces and makes it impossible to hear people talking at dinner. There is no sound barrier to protect people trying to enjoy an otherwise lovely dinner from this disruptive and annoying sound.

We very much enjoyed our experience at ETC. It is tucked in behind some office buildings in green hills but use your GPS and you will not have a problem finding it.

The experience would have rated a 5 Star if the white wine hadn't been served at such a cold temperature. It was barely drinkable at first pour. After waiting 20+ minutes to warm up, it was actually good.
Our server, Ramesh, did a great job.

Thank you for your recent visit to etc.! We're delighted to hear that Ramesh provided exemplary service. I'm sorry, however, to learn that your wine was served at the improper temperature. In checking our wine cooler, it appears that we had the setting for the white wines a tad too low. We have corrected the issue, but I apologize for how this detracted from your dining experience with us. Please know that we are always happy to replace any beverage or dish you're not completely satisfied with!

Simply put. Skip the entire experience if you can. Server was disengaged from the introduction and food was below expectations. Michael poured our wine which took 10.5 minutes to arrive and that was the last we saw of him. Food had potential but given then caliber of Nashville eats it fell flat. We stopped on our way to bluebird for music but we should’ve eaten downtown before coming out.

Food was great,service was mediocre at best.

Told our server that my wife had a peanut allergy after asking what the butters of the day were.

One of them definitely had peanut of some sort in and gave my wife an allergy.

My wife wouldn't tell me till after we left because she knows how I would have reacted.

Etc never disappoints and their 4-course Valentines Day dinne was a truly memorable meal. The food is always wonderful and the servers are knowledgeable and friendly. The ambience is great with low level lighting that adds a romantic feel. The noise level is low, so you can easily hold a conversation. I always appreciate their throughtful wine list. At the Valentines Day dinner, a wine pairing is offered with each course, and all four of the wines selected hit the mark and help enhance the dining experience. Etc is gem and I recommend it without reservation to anyone, who wants a remarkable fine dining experience.

More expensive than it was worth as a whole. Service wasn’t fantastic, food wasn’t, either, and all tasted the same. I understand they may use fresh ingredients and limited ingredients, but if you don’t like one dish, you won’t like any. I expected more WOW for the high-end experience they’re trying to offer. The illusion of fine dining is really just in their cost.
