Hi Carlo, I am sorry to learn that you weren't blown away with your selections. Mediocrity is far from what we strive to serve our guests, so it is disappointing to learn that we came up short of providing you with a five-star meal. If you have specific feedback that you could share with us, we'd love to hear from you! We are always open to hearing from our guests, and will happily replace or take care of anything that you are not fully satisfied with. We look forward to hearing from you soon!

This restaurant is spectacular in every way. Let’s start with the food. At first glance, the menu looks “fair”, but the food, OMG, is anything but “fair”. Every dish is creatively presented and looks like a piece of art. Th flavors used in each dish are unique and compliment each element of the dish so that every bite is savored. The wait staff is professional and well trained. The atmosphere is subtly hip. The location is is Greenhills so it is convenient to everyone! I love this place and plan to continue to go on a regular basis. Thanks ETC for a wonderful mean time and time again.

If you want Deb Paquette's magic without going downtown come to her Green Hills hideaway tucked at the end of Bedford Avenue. Limited seating insures impeccable service and food. Unnless you're willing to sit a the bar or risk the weather and dine on the patio - which, by the way is the best when the weather is good- make reservations.

If you've eaten at Etch you know what to expect. The chef is a magician with soups so unless the special captures you attention, make sure you order some.

It was put together with an interesting combination of flavors and textures. The mango salsa was a great complement. The server was attentive and knowledgeable. The noise level in the restaurant from 1:15-2:00 pm was moderate enough that we could converse without undue interference. Thank you for providing a lovely place to celebrate a birthday.
