This time i was very disappointed. Usually have always been happy with food and service.
Had made a reservation for brunch through open table and my friends who had been seated before me, had not yet even been greeted by a waiter or offered water etc. The trend of poor service continued with us having to ask him to take our drinks orders ( coffee was never refilled nor asked about) , steak and eggs were great , the Southern Benedict was so-so nut mostly it was the service that was quite terrible. we were not asked how the food was, nor checked in on despite it being only moderately busy.
Waiters attitude was one of being irritated at even being asked fr water refills ad the way he tossed the check on the table was quite insulting. despite being a very loyal fan since Zola's and Etch days, i will likely hesitate before going back.

We were seated promptly and attended to quickly. The server was knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive. Both in my party decided to branch out and try the special (a spaghetti squash quesadilla) that was amazing! The atmosphere is warm and inviting. I have eaten at Etc. several times for both lunch and dinner and recommend it highly to others. I will definitely be going again. Thanks for a great experience.

We celebrated our 60th wedding anniversary in Nashville
with family members and ate at etc twice, for lunch and dinner. On both occasions we were impressed by the attention to detail and creativity in the menu and food
presentation. The chef creates each entree with complementary sauces and creates two flavored butters daily for their sourdough bread. Waitstaff is attentive and provide helpful guidance to guests. Each dish was extraordinary. Favorites were a yellow squash appetizer. the red beet salad with goat cheese, arugula, bacon and yellow raisins, plated with a cherry sauce and a cantaloupe
with lime sauce. Be sure to call for reservations and enjoy the complimentary valet service.

What a great find! A little Gem tucked in to an unassuming Greenhills side street. Service impeccable, friendly and warm. Ambiance perfect for a casual yet still refined meal. Food absolutely delicious and exactly as we expected from a Chef / Owner of such high caliber. If you love Etch you will not be disappointed with the "Little Sister" etc.

Relaxed, elegant lunch spot. Flavored butters started a great lunch. The Mediterranean salad and soup of the day made a healthy, tasty meal. Service was superior. Dishes arrived and disappeared with skill. Service was attentive but never intrusive. Great wine list. Two of our party enjoyed the creative cocktails.

I met a few colleagues for lunch and I can fully recommend etc. for a business meal or quick bite to eat during lunch. So far, I have never visited during any other time of day. I definitely plan to go back for happy hour. I think it would be fun and a good atmosphere for an after-work get together.

etc never disappoints. It is one of the very few restaurants in Nashville where conversation is possible. The menu changes seasonally and is always creative and well executed. When we want excellent food, an intimate atmosphere, great service and the ability to carry on a conversation, we automatically think of etc. We make it a practice to dine out at a fine new restaurant every week, so we are very familiar with what the Nashville food scene has to offer. etc is one of our favorites and has been since it opened.

Food was delivered with bread, but we had advised about wheat allergies. Then when redelivered, it was cold and "gelled". Trout was pale, flavorless. Dessert and service, however was excellent. But we won't go back, for the money, it wasn't great.

OK, love Etc for a long time. But this is the 3rd meal in a row that fell short. FIrst, the good: the short rib appetizer was great. The charcuterie was good. The bread good. Not so good: One of us ordered the trout special that evening. There was so much on the plate it was impossible to discern what the theme of the plate was other than "let's put 5-6 different flavors on the plate and let them figure it out." I had the pork. BLAND, but, again, with bizarre accompaniments that did not hang together pumpkin and black beans and some other stuff I didn't get. Most bizarre thing of the night was "turkey dressing butter" with the bread. It almost made us both gag. Try something before you serve it! Then there were the desserts. I had the pretzel/chocolate/caramel confection that seemed old--almost chewy, and not in a good way. I noticed my companion did not eat most of hers. We didn't discuss it. My only hope is that the server took our mostly full plates back to the kitchen. I didn't want to mess up a nice meeting with complaints. I'll write this off as a bad night....but it was the third bad night I had here after a great start.
