    Deb Paquette herself served us our dessert (scrumptious strawberry panda cotta), but I'm getting ahead of myself. 😉 This place is always stellar, and did not disappoint this time. We had a perfectly seasoned cucumber and chervil salad to start, along with their perfect GF dinner rolls and flavored butters. Then came GF fried catfish, and the venison. It is impossible to describe in words how perfectly all of the flavors on each plate blended. Suffice to say we are every bite, stopping just short of licking the plates. Then came that panna cotta -- perfection on a plate.

    The service and atmosphere is amazing. Walking in you instantly relax. The food this time was good and could be what I ordered that made it not great. (4 out of 5). Ordered the Korean Bistro salad and while good it could have done with one less flavor. The Bread and Butter was also good (4 our 5) but again, butters just weren't my cup of tea. That said, it was still good. The service on the other hand was OUTSTANDING as it always is. I will be back - just will order a different meal.

    Very creative menu offerings, mediocre execution. My cocktail was excellent, hers underwhelming. Butternut bleu salad was absolutely delicious but steak and chicken entrees were under- seasoned and the gravy for the chicken was watery. Buttermilk pan a cotta was delicious. If the entrees were better I would probably give 4/5 rating.

    etc.Responded on July 18, 2022Hi William, thank you for your recent visit to etc. While I'm pleased to hear that you enjoyed your salad and dessert, I'm sorry to learn that your entrees fell short of expectations. Mediocrity is far from what we strive to provide our guests, so it is disappointing to learn that you did not have a five-star experience with us. Please know that we are always happy to replace anything you don't absolutely love, as we want all of our guests to leave fully satisfied with their selections. I have shared your feedback with our culinary team for review and do hope that you'll consider returning in the near future. Thank you again for your patronage; our guests' feedback is very valuable to us, and I appreciate you taking the time to share yours.

    Delicious food and friendly knowledgeable service! Between the four of us we had the mushroom ganache & whipped tallegio appetizer, the venison, chicken, and swordfish main dishes with the brussels sprouts (with bacon and apple) as a side dish. For dessert, we had the chocolate malt cake and almond and blueberry streusel tart. Everything was really good! The appetizer and venison were truly the showstoppers. Bring all your foodie friends here!

    Etc is a amazing. Hidden gem off the beaten path. The dishes that Chef Deb creates are stunning. Bursting with flavor, colorful, brilliant to all the senses. Drinks are great, they rotate the cocktails with seasons. Staff is warm and welcoming. Truly the best hidden secret in Nashville. You really only see locals there. But it is hopping. Better get a reservation.

    Our food was outstanding. All four of us thoroughly enjoyed our dishes. The redfish was really marvelous with a risotto cake underneath and eggplant purée and other delicious sauces along side (Of course the menu had more interesting names for all of these) Marvelous chocolate cake for dessert and good valet parking. Wonderful experience and we will be back.

    Disappointed in my meal…catfish and shrimp. The 4 small shrimp were tasty. The batter on the fried catfish was so heavy/thick the fish had very little taste. My girlfriend said her pork entree was quite good. Service was outstanding. Our waitress could not have been nicer or more attentive. Despite my disappointment, I would definitely return. Just would order something other than the catfish!

    One of the few civilized places to eat nowadays. It was full but quiet due to the character of the patrons. That area is getting very busy so plan to valet park your vehicle. Food, as usual was varied and tasty. Did not seem to be a shortage of staff; our server was outstanding. The price was right and the sauvignon blanc wine from New Zealand. This will become our own "Cheers" but without Woody and Diane.
