The restaurant was very nice and the food was good. I would say it was a little over priced. Nothing was too special to warrant that price tag. The place is beautiful inside but definitely stuffy. I would recommend sitting at the chefs counter.
We sat at the bar and had all 3 appetizers (cauliflower, shrimp/octopus bruschetta and cheese and honey tray). My least favorite was the cheese and honey tray. The other two were delicious! Service at the bar was impeccable!
For dinner we all tried something different. We started with the bread and house made butters which we loved. I had the filet, one friend had the venison and another had the corvina fish of the day. Our server did an excellent job explaining the food. They do some 5 hour process with the filet that our server told us makes it taste delicious. Personally I have had better and I did not care for the potatoes or salad/noodle mixture that came with it. My friends had delicious sides (mushroom and spinach wanton; feta filled phyllo, etc) and they enjoyed their main course. We added two of the shareable sides- the crispy potato salad which was delicious, and the butternut which was also good. We were too stuffed for dessert.
Overall, top notch service, unique flavors, wouldn’t recommend the filet, a little pricey ($9 sides). Too many options in Nashville to come back any time soon but I would recommend to others.
celebrated our birthdays at Etch. it was very nice. food was delicious. we did have a little sticker shock for food, but it was good for a special occasion on a budget like ours.
very much appreciated the valet parking.
would recommend the name on both sides of the building because unless we were coming from a specific direction being out of towners, we couldn't find it the first time.
Great!!! Food inventive, service wonderful and a modern atmosphere.
Awesome food! Appetizers were excellent as was the main course. Will definitely come back.
My 4th visit to Etch. The other 3 times were wonderful! Very disappointed this time. Filet Mignon was overcooked. Salad was good but the chicken was over-salted, dry, and tough. I have been raving about Etch to my friend for months. She was not impressed. I was disappointed.
Matt was a great server.
The food was presented well and unique flavors. Service was perfect
We celebrated a late Valentine’s Day/Anniversary at Etch and it was so amazing! The service was phenomenal and the food was creative, beautiful, and delicious.
My wife continues to talk about our awesome dining experience at the Etch. The food was absolutely amazing and the attentive service made for a great experience. I would highly recommend the Etch experience.
Excellent food & wine
Excellent service and knowledgeable staff!
This was my second visit to the Etch. The first was an enjoyable dining experience, the food and service was good, however this second visit was a serious disappointment. The food was mediocre, and the service was poor to say the least. Having a reservation we were seated immediately, but we were seated for 10-12 minutes before our waiter showed up. After our drinks were served there was another long wait and we had to get the attention of another waiter to let our waiter know that we were ready to order our meal...another long wait. During the dinner he (appearing very rushed) showed up once. Prior to leaving, our disappointment was shared with both the waiter and a manager who visited our table. I explained that based on my first visit I had recommended the restaurant to several other people. He was apologetic. Hopefully, this was just a bad night but this was last time for me.
We have been there 3 times and every time we went, the food got degraded from the previous time. Very disappointed. Also, the waiter forgot to order one of the dishes and since we were not happy with the ones we were eating, we didn't bother even tell him. Overall, expensive but not worth the money.
Get the cauliflower. Seriously. Just do it and thank me (and the Chef) later.
Fantastic recommendation from a local friend! Spot on food, drinks service. Guidance by server was spot on!
We had an early reservation. The service was very professional. Atmosphere was a modern, perhaps a bit crowded for my taste. The food was exceptional. The cost/value was reasonable. Overall an excellent meal at a cool modern restaurant in downtown Nashville.
First time in Nashville. Restaurant recommended by friends. Wanted to book dinner but could not get in so we chose to do lunch. Did not disappoint.
Excellent meal. Unfortunately it turned out to be the best part of the evening (we lost the hockey game). Menu is changing to reflect the availability of seasonal ingredients, so it is worth checking it out before you go. Great service as always and food was perfectly prepared. The duck appetizer and the cauliflower made a great pre-game meal!
Etch is one of those restaurants that is always memorable with food and service out of this world. Though it isn't the most expensive restaurant we've been to (though it is in the $50-100/person range depending on number of courses and alcohol), it tastes like it and is definitely worth every penny and savoring every moment.
