Just went to Ecco for the first time and we LOVED it. Very interesting menu with some unusual pasta dishes and a good wine list. There were 4 of us sharing so we ordered quite a lot and we really liked it all. Good service. Nice atmosphere. It can be a bit loud but we got a table in the... More

A word of caution: some people are leaving reviews for the ATL airport location under the Midtown location. I cannot vouch for the airport location but I'm sure it is a lesser experience - just my opinion. As far as the Midtown location, we found it to be both romantic and a wonderful customer experience. As far as being within... More

ECCO is on of those places where the moment you walk in the door you are part of the experience. A really hip bar with outstanding bar staff up on all the latest drinks. I prefer my Manhattan's with rye which not all bars carry but ECCO actually has a good selection. We have eaten there several times and everything... More

We had an 8 pm reservation and arrived a minute or two early and were immediately seated. Our waitress came right over and took our drink order. Beer for me, wine for my wife. The beer selection was a good mix of styles from different breweries with many local selections. The wine list was much more in depth. We started... More

I had read reviews of Ecco and everybody raved about the fried goat cheese, so we tried it. It was yummy! I was surprised that the melted cheese gushed out when I cut it in half with my fork, but it was tasty. My companion had the lamb ravioli and enjoyed everything except the mushrooms on top, which were too... More

Well it wasn't that bad but I expect a lot more for a $70 lunch for two. We were starved so we started with the Marcona almonds and the marinated olives as quick appetizers. The almonds were tasty but a touch salty. The olives were fine. We ordered iced tea to drink. The tea was VERY weak. I was served... More

This is worth taking the airport train to Terminal F. Everything looked good, I had the Poulet Rouge and was transported to the south of France. Excellent food, presentation and great service. Highly recommended if you are booked in coach on a long flight. Fill up here, and sleep through the microwaved crap they will serve on the plane. (I... More

Great atmosphere with a myriad of nice new italian type dishes. Great app menu for sharing. Recently visited on a business trip to Atlanta and was very pleased with the ambience, food and service.

I've been to Atlanta a few times now and have tried several restaurants. This was not one of my favorites. My husband had a good meal, but I wasn't particularly impressed.

We didn't have a res, but Ecco is ready to give you full service in the bar. The small plates are unusual but perfectly prepared, ready to go with a good wine list. We love the scallop spread - too much to fit on the toasts so we got more bread to finish it off. They do cheese and charcuterie... More
