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!

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.

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 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.

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.

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!!

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!

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.
