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. I'll be dreaming about the chocolate mocha tart.

Our special dining place. We love the smaller but very comfortable atmosphere. The service is fantastic and the wait staff are experts on their dishes.
I ordered the scallops and they were delicious. My wife had the special of the day, the trout. We split a beet salad which was fantastic. I also enjoyed a carrot lasagna which was my first try and left me wanting more.
Everything about ETC is superb.

One of the few independent restaurants in Green Hills, so that is a plus. The food is very good, the space is a bit disjointed, but it works. Nice small bar and the service is usually very good. We had a nice lunch, the fish of the day, which was great and also the seared tuna salad, which is also very good.

Food was excellent. I had the beet salad and the cauliflower main dish. Cauliflower was lovely--very
savory and flavorful. My companion had the scallops and declared them delicious. Service was good except at the bar, where we started before sitting for dinner. Got ignored for quite a while while the bartender dithered with a patron tasting wines and then we were asked to wait while she gave menus to a table. I'm okay waiting, but at least acknolewdge my presence and tell me you'll be a minute.

Wonderful restaurant! The food is exquisite—beautiful presentation and delicious to eat. The dirty martinis are excellent as well. We enjoyed wine from Lebanon which is hard to find in Nashville. The ambiance is lovely and it’s not too bright. The noise level is not too high, a nice change from so many Nashville eateries where you have to yell to be heard. Prices were reasonable for such a fine dining experience. Fantastic evening!
