The service was quick and we were regularly checked on. Our server did not interrupt conversation and came by at appropriate times. The food was excellent, I had salmon which was cooked to perfection, and in both of the meals we are it was clear the chef had spent a lot of time to balance the wide range of flavours so well.

Food is incredible! We tried the pork loin and the filet, and ate everything on the plate! However, our favorite thing was the carrot lasagna, as a side item! It is a must buy! Our only small negative, is that we were set directly in front of the door, literally about five to seven feet away....It was a 30 degree night, and we were hit by a very cold breeze every five minutes. I ate with my winter coat on. So when reserving, ask to be far away from the front door. (There were about 3-4 other tables complaining they were cold.). I think if they added a second door, and a heater to the hostess station, it would fix the problem. Other than that, food eas exceptional! We will be back!

Food was very tasty. Food should have been served on very hot plates to keep the food warm throughout the meal. But I would definitely go back. Very nice ambiance. And not noisy.

Small restaurant - make reservations. Excellent service, outstanding food. However - the roasted beet grilled cheese should come with a heat warning. Not sure if it was horseradish or wasabi - stung the back of my head, made my eyes water and nose run. It was delicious, but not for the faint of heart. Cauliflower appetizer was amazing and just enough quantity. Patty melt was juicy and good comfort food. My favorite part? The toasted bread on the sandwiches. Great first visit - we'll be back.

An adventure in food.
We sampled a lot of small dishes - making a "tapas meal" out of salads, the toasted bread, appetizers, and a vegetarian mian course.
What one hopes for is a sort of delicious creativity - and that's what was set before us.

We will try to come at a different time. The noise level made it too difficult to converse. Otherwise, we liked it very much.

Another problem was the more than 10 minute wait for the one valet parker at noon.

etc. is our favorite Nashville restaurant. So, it's no surprise we chose it to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. The hostess, our waiter and the manager helped make our celebration extra special. We had the roasted pork loin and the fish special. Both dishes were amazing. The Buttermilk Panna Cotta was a light and refreshing dessert. As always, the dining experience at etc. was a memorable one. I highly recommend this restaurant for a drink at the bar or a lovely dining experience with attentive and professional staff.

I've been several times and it's one of my favorite places. But I have to say the wine list -- especially the per glass (red) list -- is not good at the moment. Our table couldn't find anything we wanted, bottle or glass, and I ended up just drinking water. And one of my friends didn't like the specialty drink she got. When I was there before Christmas, though, there was a red glass of wine that was absolutely delicious -- but it wasn't on the list this time. Other than that, the food is always fantastic.
