Wow. We went to Etch because it was highly rated. It deserves it. We sat at the kitchen bar, greeted by Matt our great server who explained everything so well as to what was happening by all the people prepping in front of us. Fun to watch the magic happen with every item they prepared. It was fun to talk... More

We arrived at 9:30 wanting dessert and coffee. Even though the information states the restaurant is open until 10 the host refused to seat us. I then saw a waiter bringing out a tray with dessert and coffee presumably for a table of guests in the restaurant. It would have taken us no longer to have dessert than the guests... More

This is our favorite restaurant in Nashville, and we try to go for every special occasion. Unique, very special food - farm to table with exceptional preparation and attention to detail. Service is impeccable. Great atmosphere, though lively and somewhat loud. A excellent wine list with reasonably priced selections as well as classic choices. Current heavy construction activity nearby can... More

I had the cauliflower appetizer and the fresh fish main plate. I thought the food was well prepared and well presented. The wine list is fairly priced for a nicer restaurant.

Although the menu descriptions can seem very complex and possibly a little unapproachable, the atmosphere and food are both fantastic. The menu changes regularly, so with the exception of a few regular items, it's always new. We went as a group of 6, and ordered almost all of the starters and a side item in addition to our meals, giving... More

Extremely unusual combinations of food and spices that was just delicious. Our server Brook was very attentive and extremely knowledgeable about the dishes. I had the Cobia served on a beignet and my husband the filet with a rich sauce- espresso (I can't remember). Started with the roasted cauliflower with a pistachio pesto that was superb. This was a great... More

This is a fun and beautiful place to go right near all the activities in Downtown. You are a very short walk from Bridgestone Arena, Schemerhorn, Broadway etc. Seriously try the roasted cauliflower. Even if you are convinced you hate cauliflower you will be proven wrong! Nice drink selection and wonderful menus.

Since we really wanted to try Etch, we accepted the only seats on a Friday night at the Chef's Bar. So glad we did!!! We were right in the thick of watching them plate, cook & interact with the head chef. You get to chat with many of the servers which was really different experience. Our waiter Travis was a...
