If you’re plant based eater like myself this wouldn’t be the place to go for flavorful food. The grilled eggplant and carrot ginger tofu dish was eh.... very bland and the eggplant was luke warm but more so on the cold side.

I wouldn’t go back to eat but possibly to sit at the bar for a cocktail.

We dined outside on an early evening in November. We were blessed to be seated under a space heater that we didn't really need. I chose the Filet Bruschetta entree and my husband had the pork loin; both were outstanding and included plenty of vegetables to make each entree filling. Despite that, we shared the key lime cheesecake--also outstanding. Service was excellent; points to our server for suggesting a wine that I was hesitant about because, per my quick peek at my wine app, it wasn't rated that well. Turns out that our server was right!

The crab cake brunch entree was delicious and plated beautifully. Biscuits were awesome: lightly crunchy outside and very tender inside. The accompanying butter and jams were perfect.

The service there is always spot on.

Had a wonderful early dinner at etc! Very cool place with indoor and outdoor seating. The food was excellent, and all staff members were attentive and friendly. Our server Alex was great! I had the filet which was very tender and cook as ordered; medium rare. My friend had the chicken and said it was delicious as well. It's a little pricey, but very enjoyable.

Etc. always is an exceptional experience for brunch. The crab cake Benedict with creole mustard hollandaise was fantastic, as was the rhubarb-chipotle compote with the biscuits. Ate on the patio - very impressed with the COVID protocols which allowed us to enjoy a relaxed meal with our family. Thank you! :)

Celebrating my belated birthday. Very nice evening. Food was outstanding but a little overpriced. When our server came to take our order, we weren’t quite ready. It was about 10 minutes later before he returned to come back to the table.

A weekday “We need to go out” dinner. This after a trip to St Helena, California in which we ate at four very good restaurants. My dinner at ETC far exceeded any on the Napa trip. Our waiter totally “sold” the evening special and I’m so glad I followed his recommendation. It was both visual and gustatory art. My wife and I are big fans of both Etch and ETC, and last night added to this opinion.
