We were excited to finally try Etc. to celebrate a birthday but were very disappointed with many of the dishes. The grilled sourdough bread was only partially grilled, many of our pieces were still very soft, thought the butters were nice.

The bbq octopus seemed as though it would be a hot plate, or at least a warm plate, but the octopus was cool to the touch and the potatoes that accompanied tasted stale.

The scallops were delicious and perfectly cooked and seasoned, cut like butter.

The cauliflower entree plate was the most disappointing, it was basically raw and cold.

The chocolate dessert was very nice, we particularly enjoyed the coffee whipped cream.

The service was great and staff very attentive.

I am terribly sorry to learn that you were underwhelmed with your recent meal with us. We never want guests leaving with anything shy of a five-star meal, so it is disappointing to know that we fell short here. Please know that we are more than happy to replace anything you are not fully satisfied with, though I do apologize that some of your items were not delivered at the proper temperature.

We went to etc on NYE for the first time, so my review of the "value" may be a bit slanted. I have been in Nashville for about 3 years now and this was one of the best meals (if not the best) I've had to date. I'm a former chef and do consider myself quite the foodie, so I do know what I'm talking about.

We made reservations for New Year’s Eve. We didn’t receive the salad course. Instead of correcting immediately a young man suggested it would make a refreshing change to have the salad after the entree as a palate cleanser and explained the only other option would be for them to remove the entree and start over. We had to suggest that the bill be adjusted. The dessert flavor was excellent but the cookie base of the pastry was frozen solid and we and other diners struggled to break it into edible portions. Overall a rather disappointing experience.

Three of our meals were very good to excellent. Appetizers were exceptional, drinks excellent. However, the venison arrived overdone and everything else on the plate was cold. The waiter then disappeared for what seemed an eternity, so I had no opportunity to ask him to bring something else. When he returned everyone but me had finished their meals. Not charging for the meal is supposed to make things right? We had planned this evening with friends, traveling from out of town, for a month. The house manager offered a gift card, but I doubt we’ll return to use it. Our son owns a restaurant and we’ve heard stories of people trying to get free meals. That is not who we are. If the kitchen screws up an order or the timing of service you can at least make an effort at appear sincere, offer an apology and fix the problem. When informed of the problem our absent waiter asked “what do you want?” When you encourage high expectations from your customers you need to show an attitude and effort to deliver on those expectations.

What an outstanding meal!! All plates were perfectly balanced with sweet, salty, and savory. For starters, we had thelamb meatballs--loved the feta crema and tempura zucchini. The sweet potato bourbon cream on the kale and apple salad balanced the salty cashews perfectly. The porkloin was the most succulent cut of pork either of us ever had.
