We had a 3 and 6 year old dining with us. Even the picky eater loved his food! The whole party of 6 thought it a wonderful dining experience.
Overall, it was a nice experience. The ambience was nice and presentation of the food was great. I was a little perturbed at the fact that they sold out of the entree my wife was looking for with a 730pm reservation on a Thursday night.... 😒. She settled for the pasta with mussels and shrimp, and felt that there was sand or shells in there and the shrimp while beautiful were a little fishy. I think we might have had an opportunity to get what we wanted, but the service was a little slow likely due to the volume of people there. The pork loin I had was delicious and the peanut sauce that accompanied it was amazing. I'd go back for sure, but would likely pick a time where I could get the preferred protein. .
Great atmosphere and great service!!
The dessert and cocktails were the best flavors, more so than the meal however the whole experience was excellent.
This is a great spot for a business lunch. The food was good and service great. Parking is available.
A great place for a lovely, quiet lunch with excellent food and service.
We were in a booth that seemed dark. Our eyes adjusted to the dark and we were ok.
awesome food and service. Its the Best brunch ever!! Thank you Deb!!!!
Service was poor—they had staff but our waiter was quite inattentive. Uncomfortable chairs. Fairly loud. Food unremarkable. Won’t be back.
Me and my wife had a beautiful evening in the restaurant. Food and ambience was excellent
Menu has not changed in two years. Very slow service
Some of the best food in the Nashville-Franklin area.
etc is a cozy restaurant in a quiet enclave in Green Hills. This was my first time eating here and we opted for patio seating. We were the only people out there for the majority of our meal, which we loved.
The food was delicious and the portions were human sized... big enough to be satisfying but there was absolutely room for dessert!
I had the venison (it was being substituted for the lamb, which they were out of) over lentils and, honestly, this could've easily been over salted, but it wasn't. Everything was perfectly seasoned and obviously fresh. I'm still thinking about the ricotta filled brioche.
For dessert, my husband and I shared bites of the layered chocolate cake and lemon panna cotta -- both were SO GOOD and I couldn't pick a favorite. We were so happy to have found this place, and will absolutely be back!
Excellent food & service as always! I take my clients for lunch there all the time.
As always, excellent!
We each had appetizers (smoked salmon, roasted beet salad), shared the bread and butter of the day and shared a dessert (lemon mousse). They were all excellent. Our server was attentive but not intrusive. As usual the restaurant was clean and safe. Enjoyed it!
It is always a treat to enjoy a meal with your spouse, family, friends or a business meal at either Etc or Etch. We have been long time promoters of these restaurants. Food is never disappointing and service always makes you feel the entire staff appreciates that you have chosen to dine with them.
Hi Linda, thanks for the incredible feedback! It’s always rewarding when a guest recognizes our team members’ efforts. We appreciate your kind note and look forward to seeing you again soon!
The food was unnecessarily complicated but good otherwise. The service did not meet standards of fine dining. We had to flag down our server on a couple of different occasions to get service. He was slow to put in our second drink order which caused a very long delay. (There needed to be more than one bartender.) The hostess did not smile when she greeted us and spent a considerable amount of time standing around talking to the staff, including our server, which probably contributed to his lack of attentiveness. We will not be back. There are just too many amazing restaurants in Nashville to not have excellent service when you spend a lot on dinner.
Hi Tami, thank you for joining us for dinner. I'm so sorry to hear that you did not receive stellar service during your meal, and I regret how this has affected your overall impression of our restaurant. It sounds as though we may have been experiencing staff shortages on the evening of your visit, and I sincerely apologize for any delays this may have caused throughout your meal.
Another great dinner at Etc. Food was fantastic and compared well to the big sister, Etch. Our waiter was friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful but clearly overextended. But if you’re eating out post-pandemic this is to be expected. This place definitely stays on our “go to” list.
I have had some exceptional meals at other restaurants in Nashville (which I have left reviews for) but no other restaurant delivers excellence more consistently than Etc. The Chef's creativity is probably under-appreciated because the restaurant has a lower profile, tucked away in Green Hills. If. you want to make sure your going to experience a fantastic dining experience in Nashville, this is the place. I've never been disappointed.
Hi Melissa, thank you for sharing your experiences at etc. with us! It’s wonderful to hear that you always enjoy both the food and ambiance. We hope you’ll join us again soon!
The food and service are excellent
We normally eat outside but went inside to avoid the heat. It was a pleasant experience with helpful wait service and a pleasant ambiance.
Excellent, creative food…as usual.
Very good service from Shannon.
Still one of the very best restaurants in Nashville.
One of our favorite spots to dine, always delicious, never disappoints.
Entries are not what we have come to expect from etc. since it’s inception. Meats were overdone and sides were unimaginative.
Starters, service and personnel are exemplary
Really great option in this area of town.
The service could not have been better. The host was welcoming and professional. Our waiter, Shannon, was friendly and attentive. She even had "Happy Anniversary" written on our dessert plate. The atmosphere was refined and cozy. My only reason for not giving an overall top rating was that the two menu items I wanted were not available. My first choice, the lamb, was not being offered that evening, and they ran out of the monkfish special just as my spouse and I ordered it. However, the filet and chicken dishes were excellent - wonderful flavors and beautiful presentation. Thank you for a memorable evening, and we'll be back.
Wonderful food and service
Etc. remains one of our favorite Nashville restaurants! Love the intimate atmosphere, the outstanding food quality and presentation, and overall experience. Thank you for the consistency of excellence. Looking forward to being back!
Hi there, thank you for taking the time to share your visits with us! It's always a pleasure having you dine with us; please join us again soon!
Had a fabulous brunch with a friend! We have not seen each other in over 5 years. It was amazing service and intimate setting to chat for hours. The pancakes tasted a little weird however the rest of the food was AMAZING! We think the batch of pancakes were just off for that day so I definitely will go back and try them again. Service was impeccable!
Love ETCH downtown but ETC is not quite as good. They were out of the wine we wanted to order after it had been recommended by our server and also out of the lamb for the entree that 2people in our party wanted to order- they substituted venison but it was “tough and chewy. I feel they are trying too hard to make the food and it’s presentation different and interesting... time to get back somewhat to basics with a twist!
Disappointing- I really hoped ETC would be our go to neighborhood restaurant but I’ll have to find another!
Thank you for your recent visit to etc. I am sorry to hear that you were not impressed with your menu selections and overall experience with us. Please know that we are always happy to replace any items that you do not absolutely love, as we want each and every guest to leave fully satisfied with their meal. We do hope that you'll return in the future-- our Chef changes the menu seasonally for lunch, brunch and dinner, and I am confident we can find something you will love.
Deb Paquette never disappoints. Excellent as always. She’s so good combining flavors ; so creative. Can’t wait to return
Food was excellent! Really interesting and inventive flavors. Only complaint was they seemed to be understaffed so our server took a while to take our order, pick up the bill, etc.
Yet another superb meal at Etc. The monk fish special and the pork loin were both wonderful. We love this place for fine dining in a convenient location with a relaxed ambience.
Fantastic as always
Service was slow. Had to return one drink because it arrived after we completed our meal. But they did comp it!
Always unexpected and amazing.
