Went out for a girls' dinner and really enjoyed it. I had the scallops and it was delicious. One of my friends ordered the pork dish and it was very good. The wine selection was great and the service was top notch. I hope etc. remains in Green Hills for a long time to come. We certainly need restaurants of its caliber here.

The experience at etc. was wonderful. It began with the (Manager?) Bret, solving a problem I was having with an e-Gift Card from 2018! He solved it-issued a new one and all was right! Relief!
The location and environment within etc. was perfect for the morning Brunch. The staff was great, the valet was great and the server was exceptional. The beverages and meal were superb. This was not the average "brunch" meal. Thank you. This is a new favorite! Deb P has perfect vision and taste (for me). Thank you.

etc is a great place for an intimate dinner. The menu is creative and delicious. Their wine list has great variety by the bottle or glass. We ate the octopus and salmon appetizers. Both were as good as they were different. I had the venison plate, which was beautifully prepared and presented, accompanied by a glass of Latour burgundy. My wife ordered the chicken cassoulet. it too was well prepared and delicious with a glass of french chardonnay. Our waiter, Michael, was there when we needed him and never hovered. A great meal!

We had a group of 6 for "Girls Night Out." Etc. was the perfect restaurant for us. The food is always amazing and creative (carrot tartare . . . WHAT?!? . . . yummy!). The service was impeccable. The cocktails were unique and well-crafted. We were the noise level (oops!) but the staff wisely placed us out of the way to protect the other guests. The masterful Chef, Deb Paquette, stopped by our table and chatted with us for a minute. It was a wonderful evening.

ETC., like ETCH, is adventuresome in its combinations and flavor profiles in the best, controlled way.
The room is small and intimate and acoustics seem to be better at ETC. The actual site is a little strange- nested in between strip malls and new, generic mixed-use residential development. ETC is in the latter. Due to the location, this is definitely not a place I would have tried randomly. We went because we are fans of ETCH and live in close proximity.
The food: The octopus (like ETCH) is amazingly tender and delicious. This is a place where the steak is actually really good even though it’s definitely the “safe” choice on the menu. The special last time was a fish dish- it was very fresh and paired with a seemingly complicated grouping of veggies that complemented the fish without overpowering it. My husband got the venison which made for an unexpectedly great meal. I should also mention the bartender was knowledgeable about wines and made great cocktails.

This was for my husband’s 45th birthday. He has always been a fan of executive chef, Deb. One of his all-time favorite restaurants is Etch, so naturally, we had to try Etc. Deb came out and spoke with us for 15 to 20 minutes. It absolutely meant the world to him. Deb is a true artist. There was NOTHING I would change from the cocktails, to the salads, apps, entrees, and dessert. Sublime!
