Creative food, good wine recommendation from our server. Good service. A little loud, but not too bad.
Beautiful space! Noise level - there was no noise even with the restaurant being full. Service was friendly and attentive. Thoughtful beverage program. Food was sublime. The lamb tenderloin is the best I’ve ever had at a restaurant. Generous portions all around. My new favorite restaurant in Nashville!
We thought our food was all delicious! Drinks, too.
All I can say is that Etc. is nothing short of amazing. The food and drink selections are outstanding and always nuanced. Service is always top notch. It's a beautiful little gem. It makes for a great date spot, lunch outing or dinner with the family venue. By far my favorite restaurant in Nashville without question.
Great atmosphere, outstanding service. The real fun is trying to figure out what ingredients are in each entre. The pork loin was incredible as was the mahi-mahi special.
So glad to be back and enjoyed sharing wonderful cuisine with friends in this lovely restaurant.
Our server was super friendly! And the food was very good. Would recommend to others.
Everything was amazing! Truly some of the best food I've ever had.
The menu is wonderful, unique and the service very good.
We had come here for dinner and found it a bit fussy, but this time was lunch on the patio and it was lovely. Everyone loved their food and said the flavors were "interesting" and "creative" but delicious. Service was wonderful, especially dealing with my hard to please party member. Covid protocols were great. The only drawback is the patio is right on the corner of a street and while it isn't a busy street there were occasional loud trucks and groups of people walking by. We'd definitely return for lunch.
Great food & great service! No complaints at all. We really enjoyed our lunch!
That said, we are foodies & had the pleasure of many other dining opportunities in Nashville at a fraction of the cost. We even talked about this. There’s nothing we could point to regarding Etc that could use improvement. That’s not the problem. It’s just that the competition is so stiff that it’s hard to justify the cost when there really are competitors who as good with food & ambiance at better prices.
So, yes, we would return if friends suggested, but probably not seek out a reservation on our own.
I dine there frequently. It’s always fabulous and it’s on the street where I live.
I love this place! Food is great. They have specials when nobody has special, supposedly due to Covid. Ambiance
And service excellent and s lovely patio. Manager is awesome
Great food and great service!
I rated the noise level as quiet because we ate on the patio on a beautiful day. Inside, when it is full, the restaurant is a little loud; if that is an issue, ask for the far corner table past the bar on the far side of the entrance.
A favorite place for dinner or lunch, but in the past year, more lunches than dinners. The patty melt is one of the best burgers in the city, and the catfish is great, as are the inventive salads. Would have loved to try the strawberry bisque soup, but was full from the rest of lunch.
etc. is a small restaurant, tucked back on a quiet street (especially after business hours) and a real gem.
It was absolutely incredible! The flavors and dish composition was perfect! I would highly recommend! The tempura ceasar blew my mind! Will go back for sure.
The temperature of the side dishes served with the fish special, MahiMahi were cold, the cheese was set on top of the polenta cake. Normally Everything is a plus, but this was definitely a slip up
Had special menu for Easter, but WOW, everything was Exceptional!
The talent and creativity of the chefs is apparent here. A must for foodies.........anyone who appreciates dishes that are complex and have layers of flavor!
Service, food and atmosphere DID NOT disappoint!
Food is always unique at etc which is what we liked. I have to admit my omelette was not my most favorite thing I've had there, but the rest of my table really enjoyed their food.
The hostess remembered that we had been in at the end of February for my birthday - very impressive. Customer Service is the most important thing to us and her comment goes a long way with us.
Would definitely recommend.
Hi Leslie, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback! It's a pleasure knowing that you enjoyed your overall brunch visit to etc. The exemplary service provided by our host team is especially lovely to hear! I'm sorry to learn, though, that your entree fell short of expectations; please know that we're always happy to replace any dish you don't absolutely love! Thanks again for the review; we hope you'll return again soon!
Great Easter Brunch! Traveling through Nashville as out of towners from Chicago. Highly recommend.
Lovely experience from first to last. Attentive and informative service, exquisite food (as always, for Deb Paquette), casual but elegant ambiance.
Best food I’ve had in quite awhile! I over ate it was so good. Highly recommend can’t wait to try etch next!
Came in for lunch. I had the toasted green wheat salad with shrimp and my boyfriend had the fish dish (I think it was mahi mahi) We also started with the bread and butter appetizer. We devoured everything! All was delicious. We have never been disappointed or underwhelmed by a dish at etc. Keep it up!!
Great lunch - thanks.
I am never disappointed when I dine at Etc. The food is delicious with layers of flavor, beautiful with lots of color and texture and served with precision. All the sister restaurants, Etch and Jaspers are wonderful as well.
Great service, food, and beverages! Kudos to chef, owner, and manager!
Love this restaurant...never fails me for a great meal. Love bringing colleagues from out of town here.
Obviously a restaurant that takes pride in the quality of their food. Pork belly salad was delicious with perfectly seasoned greens and pork. A nice serving size without too much. The etc. Manhattan called the Nashattan was delightful with a Smokey pungency created by the smoked orange garnish. Delicious. The location is a little generic and looks like recent construction. Due to COVID we ate outside, so we’re not able to observe the interior atmosphere. Clientele looked like business folks, but we also felt welcome.
Overall, a lovely experience.
The strawberry gazpacho we had at brunch was phenomenal! I’d go back and order a bowl any day of the week. Great service from Jaime, and the steak and wanton salad and crab cakes were both delicious and very filling. We finished off the meal with espresso—overall an excellent experience. We’re excited to come back again soon!
I went for brunch and the experience was better than I hoped for. This is now my “go to” brunch place!
What a great birthday dinner! From the Pepperhound cocktail to the Mahi special, everything was excellent and the service was great. Thank you!
Extremely limited menu. Service was ok. Outside seating very nice. There are other restaurants with a little more to their menu that I would recommend.
Consistently good from a food and service standpoint.
We went to dinner at Etc. for our anniversary and the food was great! We had the flat bread, beet salad, mahi and filet and all the dishes had amazing ingredients paired just the right way.
This is truly a hidden gem. The Mahi-mahi special was exceptional. My wife had the filet and it was great.
Food was excellent - we went for lunch, and there were plenty of healthy creative options!
We love etc the food is fabulous and the atmosphere is so warm and inviting and you can carry on a conversation without screaming. It is the best.
It was so nice to be at a restaurant in person again, as last time was exactly one year ago. It was my husband's birthday, and they gifted him a free dessert. Beautiful presentation with "Happy Birthday" written in a red (?raspberry) sauce and a lit candle off to the side for COVID safety.
The food was excellent. Everything was fresh and delicious. I ordered iced tea which was refilled very promptly.
