Fine Dining!!

Atmosphere is relaxed. Food is presented in an elegant manner, flavorful. Chef goes about and beyond what one might expect to accommodate dietary restrictions. Excellent wine selection. Highly recommend!

Had great meal at Echo. Small and intimate but very well done. Chef is high quality as is the wait staff. This restaurant is drifts toward the high end but still feels quaint. Mussels were excellent as was the wine list.

The selection of food is quite extensive, the presentation and taste of the food is wonderful and delicious, and the staff are friendly and courteous. Seth, the owner, and chef comes out of the kitchen and visits customers at their table. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. My husband and I like it so much, he gave me a surprise... More

Attended a private party and we ordered form the menu. What a great menu selection and the portions of food are plentiful. The rib eye was more than I could eat. The atmosphere is very cozy with soft music. I consider it a high end couples restaurant. The bar is complete with all major liquors that included a fine wine... More

We went for Dinner on advise from friends and found that all said was true. The service food decor and Chef Owner Seth does a wonderful job of satisfying the customer. Echo Bistro is the place to go and have a great meal at reasonable price. Reservations are advised.

Love this restaurant! The atmosphere is perfect for date night. I have food allergies, and Chef Simmerman always creates something fabulous that I can eat.

I dined at Echo twice in one week, both times for business. The atmosphere is cozy, and we were able to converse easily. The scallops were wonderful, as were the escargot, and crab cakes. I also very much enjoyed the tomato bisque with blue cheese, and my favorite, steak tartare! Nice wine list as well...

This is one of only a half dozen restaurants in the metro area that we ever recommend to anyone. And when we get tired of trying the newer, trendy restaurants (where the noise is deafening and you get waited on by a teenager), the echo bistro is our fall back, go to place. The menu is quite large, to where... More

My husband and I loved the Caesar salad. The presentation was different and the dressing tasty. The tuna and spring roll appetizer was good and the portion large enough to be shared. My husband loved his wine selection and the waitress was great. The entrees were totally disappointing. I had the twin lobster tails which were described as lightly pankoed... More

We went with friend for the second time - Chef Seth's outstanding menu selections are top shelf. He always comes out to greet his guests; asking if anyone has any type of food issues and explains the menu items for the evening. I could not resist the Scallops (which is the everybody's favorite) the crab cakes also outstanding. Try to... More
