We were a group of about twelve having dinner at Echo Bistro. The service and attentiveness of the staff were excellent, not uncomfortable over-the-top but professional and knowledgeable. Entrees, especially the Dover Sole, were delicious and brilliantly presented. I had a wedge salad that was excellent and an appetizer of mussels for my entrée, delicious and reasonably priced. Most entrée... More

We were greeted by the Chef when we arrived. Food and wine were delicious and priced right. It is a small restaurant and did get noisy but it had a good vibe. Our only complaint was that it took half an hour between asking for the check and actually leaving. Service was good up until that point. My daughter had... More

It had a great atmosphere! The server was excellent and the food came in a timely manner. Echo does use alot of ingredients in your food that could be left out. Please don't follow the menu ! We wanted creme brulee for desert and it was no longer on the menu. The menu changes every few weeks says the server... More

Believe it or not, I actually ordered from a local delivery service. The food arrived hot and good. The she-crab soup is amazing and I wish I had ordered more of it. Their steak tartare is solid with good quality meat and a great texture. My only ask is that the bread is slightly less crunchy. The chess and charcuterie... More

We were motoring through Knoxville and found the Echo Bistro & Wine Bar on our Tripadvisor mobile app. What a find! I had the Lamb and my wife shellfish. The service was top rate, the cocktails made for adults with a nice, generous pour, and the chef dropped by our table to ask our opinion. Our server, Gordon, deserves a... More

We dined at Echo Bistro & Wine Bar to celebrate my birthday. There are many nice restaurants from which to choose in Knoxville, but I'm very happy that I decided upon Echo. We had eaten here a few times before, but last night's experience and food was the best. The atmosphere says, "fine dining." White table cloths, small intimate dining... More

We have dined at this superb restaurant many times, as it is a favorite of my late Mom, and my Step-Dad. Lisa welcomes everyone like family, giving the restaurant Southern charm. You are then blown away by Seth's delicious creations in the kitchen! Every meal we've ever had has been over-the-top, equal to any fine-dining restaurant in NYC or any... More

I had a very nice experience having dinner here. The menu is pretty traditional French Bistro fare, but done quite well. I only had a Caesar salad and a yummy veal chop, but a great assortment of vegetables came with the chop. I was dining alone and they made me feel comfortable without having to sit at the bar. A...

I'm not sure how this restaurant has good reviews. The environment and service were ok but the food was definitely not good. Also the wine I ordered tasted old. Best part of meal was the bread and pesto. The crab cake was flavorless and oily and redfish was too fishy. Waitress didn't even notice/care that I didn't eat my food.... More

My husband and I with my mom to Echo for my birthday. This is always a great place. The chief, Seth, always comes out to talk to the take, check on allergies and just chat. This makes you feel like he truly care about his business. Echo generally has a specific wine on special that you taste before you order.... More
