Great place for a business lunch. Helpful and friendly staff/service, delicious food, very reasonably priced, good ambience & manageable noise level in the room. We'll be back.
The roasted cauliflower appetizer and Etch salad was a wonderful start to an excellent meal. Everything was plated nicely and the flavors were perfect. The service was also very good. We had a birthday dessert that they made special too.
Great service. Food was outstanding!
The food was incredibly special. I didn’t know that something as simple as roasted cauliflower could taste that good. Literally everything we tried was unbelievably delicious.
Wonderful food. Chef Deb provides a colorful display of food
It was our daughter's birthday and they made it very special for her! And, there was a very nice little birthday note on our table with signatures from servers, which was such a nice touch. I personally LOVED my gin & strawberry puree cocktail! Everything was DIVINE, as usual!
Probably the best meal we had in Nashville, where often even high end cuisine is over-seasoned. Loved the lamb flatbread and the Argentinian steak was also a big hit. Had fun talking to our conversational and attentive server. Wonderful experience!
Has been one of our favorite restaurants but this time the food and experience was lacking. Food was good but not excellent. Service was good but not what we expect from Etch. Waitress seemed disinterested but was pleasant
Could have more options
Always our “go to” place when we are in Nashville. Excellent service. Wonderful service. We are huge fans and we will be back!
Our waitress Karen did a great job!! Thanks for the complimentary champagne!
Great all around! The only issues were 1) that it took over 2 hours to get our entrees. Too slow for sure. And 2) it was too loud,but somewhat manageable. But I would still recommend to others!
Happy hour only at bar but was not explained when we made reservation even though the person we spoke with stressed the value of the early reservation as that would be happy hour. When they told us this after we were seated we were not offered the option of having a drink at the bar then sitting down. Just was a bit disappointing on the service part and dampened what we had expected. Food was good.
Local go to, great for lunch, cauliflower a must, always excellent service and cleanliness
Excellent service and meal. Beef tenderloin with fried potato salad was full of flavor and satisfying.
Always my favorite place to eat while visiting Nashville.
Tammy was an outstanding server and knowledgeable about all the intricacies of each item we ordered. There are food options for vegan and meat and fish lovers. I would have licked my plate if it wouldn’t have embarrassed me!
We came here for a birthday celebration and everything was amazing from start to finish!!! The staff (including the managers) were IMMACULATE! One of if not the best service I have received in the Nashville and surrounding cities regions! The food was ggggrreeeattt!!! Thought about even getting more today! Lol! Thank you so much for such a great experience!
We were greeted warmly and welcoming and seated promptly. The staff was very friendly and very professional. Service was great and the food was good
The food was amazing as well as the service. I'd recommend the scallops and pavlova!
It was truly incredible! I am looking for another place now to go and eat on my trip & thinking of trying to get in for my second time! It’s amazing!
Stopped in for lunch. The Etch salad and the lamb flatbread were wonderful. Sat at the counter. Boy, is it run like a well oiled machine. The expediter was spot on. Our server…efficient and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend.
Fabulous everything! Especially the cauliflower appetizer and the cornmeal catfish! Def great selection of eclectic food. Will return the next time we are in Nashville. Highly recommend!
All of the food at Etch was spectacular, the service was outstanding- seriously, the best service I have ever received- and it is not cheap, but DEFINITELY worth it. I have a gluten and dairy allergy, and the server was able to direct me to something amazing. I look forward to coming back as soon as I have my next milestone to celebrate. Dress to the nines and enjoy the best dinner you have ever had!
The food was delicious. Highly recommend the cauliflower app. I had the vegetarian entree and my partner had the steak. It was declared the best steak my partner has ever had.
Ambiance was lovely. Wait staff very attentive. The food was terrific. I had the cauliflower and bruschetta. My steak was cooked perfectly and my husband venison was delicious. Highly recommend Etch.
Delicious food, excellent service. A wonderful place in downtown Nashville.
Etch is our favorite restaurant of all. Food is excellent. Staff very friendly and well educated on food and drinks. We would take anyone there for dinner.
Food and service were amazing.
Best meal we’ve had in a decade. Service was beyond. Don’t sleep on the key lime coconut milk ice cream – best bite of the night.
Two thumbs up. One of the best meals I’ve ever had!
Incredible food. High quality, tasty. Our server Kyle was on top of everything
Service was warm and hospitable.
Well prepared and tasty food. Very good desert, not too sweet. Nice and knowledgeable sommelier with a good wine list.
The food was amazing. Octopus and Shrimp bruschetta is a must. The cocktails were delicious, especially the espresso martini I had for dessert :)
Connor was amazing, moreover the food and drinks were delightful!!!
This is some of the best food and service we have received anywhere in a very long time. We were there for lunch. The food was creative, cooked to perfection, served with a smile, and visually quite beautiful. It is fine dining at a price point we were hoping for. Dinner would also be wonderful, I am sure. We may have to return for that. You can go to many places with similar pricing around Nashville, but I haven’t seen anywhere near the quality.
Everything was absolutely perfect! The food was delicious! I had the venison and my husband had the lamb. Definitely going back
The food was very delicious. Great flavors and good amount of food.
We originally had a dinner reservation but called to change it to lunch. Sara was very accommodating and gave us a lunch time slot. We were seated promptly and welcomed by the host as well as our waiter. The waiter shared some of his favorite dishes which we ordered. The food was delicious , the flavors were unique and the presentation was beautiful. I would highly recommend Etch for anyone visiting Nashville or living in the area. I will definitely eat here the next time I visit.
