For me o e of the best restaurants in Nashville...and probably in USA
One of the best meals I have had in Nashville! Everything had the best flavors! Will return every time I come here. Thank you!
Food was delicious, beautifully presented, and portioned out just perfectly. Great location being downtown, and the server was wonderful - very knowledgeable of dishes and ingredients used.
We always enjoy our experiences here. The food, the service, and the ambiance always perfect.
Wonderful service and delicious lunch. The signature appetizer of roasted cauliflower was flavorful and just the right consistency. The cheese selection was yummy and easily sharable. The catfish came out steaming hot and crisp. The server overheard it was my birthday and along came the olive oil almond cake which was to die for! Excellent in every way. Can't wait to go back.
Amazing service and ambiance. The food was incredible and it was a great experience.
Amazing food and wine! Love this restaurant!
Delicious and different. Always enjoy going to Etch.
Great venue, service and food! The pecan encrusted flounder was one of the best fish dishes I have ever eaten... it was absolutely delicious. The tuna and avocado starter was super fresh and large enough for two to share. I highly recommend this restaurant!
We did the lunch and it was outstanding. Recommend the Cobia tostada and the Argentinian Filet. It really was a fantastic lunch and the service was impeccable.
My husband and I went there for the 1st time we went to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We love the attention of everyone. We definitely going back!!
We lived in Nashville for 30 years so whenever we fly in(from Reno Nevada) we like to stop in for a nice meal. The food is so fresh and flavorful. The soup was wonderful, even my leftovers. The staff is helpful and knowledgeable...we'll be back.
This may very well have been the best dining experience I’ve ever had. The staff, food, atmosphere was all top notch. Would highly recommend for special occasions and anniversaries!
Wonderful meal at Etch. Our sever was fantastic. It was our anniversary and they went above and beyond by making us feel extra special. We loved the grouper with sweet potatoes grits. I had the filet. I wasn’t a fan of the horseradish in the mashed potatoes. But that’s just personal preference. The steak was amazing
Fantastic food and great service. Also- a great location.
Overall a fantastic, upscale, delicious meal at Etch. If you're looking for an upscale atmosphere with hospitable service and thoughtfully created meals, this is the place to go. We came here for my birthday and had a wonderful experience.
Always a great experience. This is one of those restaurants where you just can't go wrong, no matter what time you go, no matter where you sit, no matter what you eat. Great staff, menu, kitchen. Definitely a "go-to" option.
Anthony was superb! Very attentive. Great service. Great food. Exceeded our expectations. Should be rated #1 restaurant in the state of Tennessee.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us! We appreciate your positive review and will be sure to share your kind feedback with Anthony! -Ahna Abuvala, Etch
Anthony, our server, was amazing. He made it a great experience as being first-time visitors! The bartender was less friendly - he was so-so but everything else was truly outstanding, and the best food. Pricey, yes, but worth every bite.
Etch has great food, and service was great too.
food was phenomenal and the service was great! Restaurant had an open kitchen which is always a plus.
We live in Nashville and this was our first time dining at Etch. AMAZING!! We will definitely be back!!!
Food was exquisite, Tammy, our server, was warm, passionate, and knowledgeable about the menu. Menu options are diverse and creative. Presentation was exemplary.
Octopus appetizer was amazing. Scallops are a must have. Everything about the experience was perfect even during Covid!
I had the lamb flatbread. Soooo good. They are doing the right thing with distancing. I’ll be back.
Food was wonderful and everything was eye opening to new ways of preparing the dishes. Waitress was so enjoyable and really made for a memorable evening.
Etch was an incredible experience. We had a small celebration and every detail was perfect. The wait staff was amazing, helpful, and sincere and every bite from drinks, appetizers, main course and dessert was full of flavor and delicious! We will definitely be back and will be recommending to our friends.
Outstanding meal. Sara, our waitress, was most helpful and very attentive. Overall an outstanding experience. Put this place on your bucket list!
Food was fresh and delicious. Our server gave us great descriptions and recommendations. Wonderful experience
If you desire delicious, expertly prepared and presented food, and all in a soothing setting, then look no further. You’ll be glad you did.
Our server was great but I have never been in there for lunch when it has taken 1 hr and 40 min. A little too slow of a dining experience for lunch. Food was great though.
Hi Sandra, thank you for the review! It's a pleasure to learn that you enjoyed your meal, although I apologize for any delays in service you experienced during your visit. We understand that lunch is often enjoyed on a time constraint and regret that we failed to adhere to that. I have passed along your feedback to our management team for us to address internally. Thank you for taking the time to let us know; we appreciate your patronage and hope you will join us again soon!
The service was impeccable. We travelled to Nashville for my birthday, and they made us feel very special. The Charcuterie Board was the best we’ve ever had!
The food was fabulous and portions were larger than we could eat. The cauliflower and Brussel sprouts were absolutely delicious. Prices were lower than we anticipated.
Yummy menu choices. From the salad to dessert, all wonderfully crafted ingredients. The filet and lamb were both divine.
I'm finally able to scratch Etch off my list of Nashville restaurants to visit. Everything was perfect and I loved it so much. All of the staff were kind and patient (when I was late) and made me feel like they really wanted me there.
We celebrated our anniversary here. They recognized that from the reservation. The food and drinks were spectacular. The service was amazing. This experience was beyond memorable!
Excellent service and food.
Went for retirement celebration. Everything we ate was fantastic, and the service was phenomenal. I will be returning for sure!
However, the markup on the Champagne was, in my opinion, absurd. Each of their listings selling for 3 times what you could buy them for. Spending $180 on a $60 bottle was a disappointingly trying decision in the midst of what was otherwise an exceptional experience, so much so that if I’m taking people out for a celebration in future with champagne in mind, I’ll go elsewhere.
Thank you for joining us at Etch! We are pleased to hear that you had a nice experience with us, though I apologize if you found your meal to be lacking in value in any way.
