Excellent meal. Loved the tuna appetizer, very unique. Great flavors throughout and wonderful service.
We are from Nashville and have eaten a lot of place. Tech exceeded our expectations for taste, presentation and service. The octopus/shrimp starter was great as was my filet and my wife’s lamb. Our server Sherrelia (sp) was wonderful. Highly recommend even though a bit pricey.
Excellent food and great service. Not a large menu. You will not be disappointed in the food selections.
Very impressed with Etch and highly recommend. Wife and I visited on our first trip to Nashville. We expected a nice meal based on reviews, but we got much more than we expected. We were expertly guided through our evening by our server, Granville. The veal and shiitake meatballs were very good. The venison is prepared Moroccan style and is one of the best meals I have ever had. Very expertly prepared. Etch has a good selection of wines by the glass that are reasonably priced. Overall, a very memorable meal.
Pretentious and not very good. Overpriced.
Pretentious and overpriced.
Our waiter, Chris, was outstanding. Completely knowledgeable about the dishes being served. I had a fish dish - don’t remember the name and I hadn’t heard it before - but it was mediocre. There were so many other things piled on the fish that it was overwhelming and I couldn’t really taste the fish. It was served with a sweet potatoe cake and I couldn’t really taste the sweet potatoes. My friend got the lamb and loved it but also thought there were too many other things added to the plate. The cauliflower appetizer is, however, amazing. Definitely get that!
Another great meal . We especially enjoyed the cocktail called a "black hole" (which, of course included a sprig of thyme) to celebrate the life and achievements of Stephen Hawking. The service, food, ambiance, wine list, valet parking etc. were all hard to beat in Nashville. This place, despite high expectations, just does not disappoint.
The food was awesome with amazing presentation. The waitress was very helpful and attentive. We will definitely go back . I also want to try the sister restaurant Etc. in Green Hills.
Lunch at Etch is one of the best deals in town. Unbelievable food at extremely reasonable prices. Highly recommended.
Amazing all around! Food was to die for and our server was awesome!
Everything was absolutely fantastic - octopus & shrimp bruschetta, duck tart, cauliflower soup, one Of the best salads, both desserts - but the entrees were disappointing. My venison was clearly quite rare instead of medium rare & just wasn’t very tasty. The scallops were okay but were served with a kale salad and beets that didn’t help the dish much. Still highly recommend, as everything apart from the entrees was seriously TOP NOTCH!
The food was amazing. Amy was fantastic and knowledgeable about the menu.
It’s always a great meal. We go every time we are in town.
One of THE BEST restaurants in Nashville. Period.
Searched the web for a good restaurant whilst in Nashville and Etch seemed one of the best.
We sat at the kitchen counter, as recommended, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our server and adviser for the night was professional, knowledgeable, friendly and enthusiastic. Between us we got it spot on.
I still find it difficult to believe that someone could convince me that cauliflower, up until then a vegetable I could not see the point of, would make a remarkable dish. But I am now a convert but only, probably, at Etch.
Cocktails mixed very well - French martini done to perfection. Enjoyed a beautifully plated filet mignon- delicious. Great service
Very nice meal. Husband had the scallops, I had the vegetarian katafi. Unfortunately mine was burnt. They couldn’t have been more accommodating. I would definitely go back when I’m in Nashville again.
The presentation is amazing and the food just as good
Very enjoyable. Interesting flavor combinations that worked
The Peruvian Ceviche was outstanding. I had the good fortune to visit Lima several years ago, an I ate ceviche every chance I got. This was as good as any ceviche I had in Peru. Fresh. Delicious. The presentation was playful and elegant. (If you ever make it to Lima, check out Amaz and Central. Amazing restaurants!)
Had the venison for my entree: Tender, medium rare. The dish had a north-African vibe, served with a feta-stuffed pastry, pomegranate walnut sauce, black olive tapenade, poached apricots and a mint relish. Looked and tasted fantastic. My friend had the lamb, which was also excellent. The house cocktail list was short but strong. The waiter listened carefully to my questions about the menu and the wine list, and his suggestions for wine matched my appetizer and my entree perfectly.
We've tried a lot of the new restaurants in town over the past year but we keep coming back to ETCH for some reason. Will not disappoint. Great presentation, great food, great Vibe!
Everything was great
Wonderful food, wonderful service by Ed! Thank you!
Our server Matt was great!
Food, service, atmosphere. That order. Loved it! Going back again
Great experience as always. Service was excellent and food was very good.
Fantastic steak. Excellent service.
Excellent meal by a very creative chef. One of the top chefs in Nashville. Knowledgeable staff. Great wine list
Dinner before the symphony. Have been to Etch several times previously. Never disappointed in either the food or the service. New items on the menu. Tried them. Excellent. Despite my wife's objection had the crispy potato salad side dish. Love it. Exhibits one of the things I like about Etch. Take a common food, i.e. potato salad, and with a little imagination make it memorable...and tasty.
We chose this restaurant based on its reviews, so I need to explain why I gave it a VERY GOOD rating. The food is very creative. we started with the octopus and shrimp Brioche. The octopus is to die for, but I only found two small parts of shrimp bodies in the serving. The brioche was crispy and stayed that way throughout the serving. We had the lamb and venison proteins and they were cooked perfectly. The vegetable selections were, however, overly complex and not designed for my palate. Not to say this is bad, it was just not palatable for me.
While I normally leave a restaurant over filled, I did not have that problem at Etch. This too, is not a bad problem. We even had the dessert (chocolate mousse brownie with gnash) and did not leave too full. It was a perfect portion and outstanding.
Etch was great. We have been several times when visiting Nashville and I think this was the best. The food was special and the service was very good.
The staff and food outstanding!!!
Always exceptional!! Creative forward thinking cuisine. Never disappoints. Great seevixe and excellent wine list. A local treasure!
Amazing meal! Wonderful service and artistic, creative food that truly satisfies. We only had two nights in Nashville and agree that Etch is a must stop. One of the best meals we've had in months.
Etch is consistently excellent. I enjoy the entire experience every time I dine there.
This was the second time I have been to Etch after a good experience. This time I was very disappointed in the food. The fish entree was overcooked and the lentil cake the fish was served on tasted terrible. The scallop entree was served on a bed of kale. The kale overwhelmed the scallops. The third entree was the filet which by far was the best dish out of the three which I ordered. It was cooked to perfection and the vegetable parings were excellent. Unfortunately my husband had ordered the fish which was not very good so I swapped my delicious entree for the bad one. I did tell the waitress the dish was not up to par especially the lentil cake. We had the apple tart for desert it was delicious. If I were to go back which I probably won't I would stick with the filet as it was excellent.
I had several special requests from the staff and all were executed per my instructions! We had an amazing time on our anniversary
Everything at Etch was top notch. From the service to the food selection we were not disappointed. I can't recommend Etch enough.
Our favorite restaurant downtown.
The food and flavor combinations at Etch are among the best I've ever eaten anywhere in the world. The atmosphere is cozy and vibrant but not too loud, not happy hour-ish. Service is the right combination of friendly and attentive without being overbearing. But the food is so unique, so beautifully prepared and presented, with so many flavor combinations it's hard to adequately describe it. Definitely worth the trip.
