Since being named a "Best New Restaurant in America" by Esquire in 2006, Ecco has quickly become one of Atlanta's, and the Southeast's, most recognized and renowned restaurants. The seasonal European menu tempts with delicious meat and cheese boards featuring a myriad of different selections, housemade pastas, authentic wood-fired pizzas and mouthwatering desserts. The restaurant also features an adventurous, nationally-recognized wine list representing both boutique and well-known European vinyards with many selections exclusive to Ecco. Featuring award-winning design including an over-sized bar, a large, open-air patio and a breathtakingly beautiful main dining room, Ecco is completely unique, yet comfortable. Whether with a large party, enjoying a romantic dinner or simply having a bite at the bar, Ecco is sure to become one of your favorite Midtown neighborhood dining spots.

We were two friends sharing a dinner in Ecco. We started with the fried goat cheese, which is quite exquisite. Then I had the simple pizza, which is decent and my friend had the pasta dish with seafood and he was very happy with it. Good service and good place.

A friend and I decided to go to Ecco for dinner and some wine. It was a GREAT choice. We tried several different whites and one of the dessert wines.... GREAT selection. I will say most are by the bottle and the ones by the glass are $8 and up. The choices by the glass are good ones. We really... More

Often 'Best Restaurant' award-winning venues are disappointing. Maybe it sets too high of an expectation, and likely it's subjective. In the case of Ecco, I would agree with the rating they received in 2006 from Esquire magazine as 'best new restaurant' - and they are still going strong. We ate here 2x in June - two weeks apart. On both... More

Ecco lives up to its high reputations in service, food and overall customer experiences. We were in a large group and the wait staff made sure we plenty of room, water and answered every single question. We wanted several different appies - they created 2 tasting boards with at least 5 - 6 different selections - enough to share and... More

We were on a layover in ATL for one night on our way to Bermuda. Decided to hop the MARTA from the airport and visit Ecco. Great experience and worth the train ride. Place was packed and booked but we were able to grab 2 spots at the bar and really enjoyed it. Highly recommend it.

Pleasant enough staff but when looking to enjoy your time at Atlanta airport there isn't too much choice. As ever the prices are more than usual but the 18 per cent service charge in to of 4 separate taxes include meant we could have ordered another entree for them being included. Functional for airport meals. Other people gave negative comments... More

Here by myself and I'm used to sharing. I couldn't decide because the menu was so good. Wanted cured meats, cheeses, lamb meatballs and beet salad. I asked the bartender Finn who left the bar to check with the Chef and made my day by shrinking the serving size and making me one beautiful dish. Id love it if you... More
