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.

This was the second time we ate at Ecco and in both cases have found the restaurant's food to be very, very good. The service is great and the manager? owner? was very interested in our opinion of the place. Next time I get back up to Atlanta, I will be certain to get to Ecco for dinner!

Ok, I apologize for my homophone, but I really like this restaurant. I travel alone on business regularly and am constantly looking for places that are welcoming of foodies who are alone. Well, this was just that place. I sat at the bar and Andrew and Sarah were great. They helped with wine selections (I stuck with French white and... More

Don't know why I've been gone so long. LOL After starting off at One Midtown Kitchen (a major misfire), we took an uber over to Ecco in hopes of salvaging our evening. Thanks to our server, Laura, a very congenial management staff, and some terrific chefs.....we did! Everything was great but the highlights were the following: the watermelon and basil... More

We wandered into this restaurant in one of the international courses at the Atlanta airport essentially by accident and picked it as a place to eat because it had more of a fine dining ambience than others in the area. It was billed as a wine and tapas place and that is a pretty good description. As a summary my... More

Just a play on the name ECCO (or echo) but the food is so good here YOU will return over and over again! Mr business associate had the Quail which is hard to cook without ending up with dry breast but ECCO nailed it and it was tender and juicy! I had the flank steak which was prepared as one... More

We have dined at Ecco many many times but the last 3 times the food was just ok. The service went downhill. The size of the meals are small and salty. We always make a reservation several days in advanced. Just plain disappointed. Dining outside is better because it is so loud inside. We have done all three outside, table... More

My wife and I just returned from an excellent first experience at Ecco. From the fried goat cheese, to the smoked prosciutto, to the pappardele, the entire evening was flawless. Our server, Christian, did a great job of providing us with outstanding service.

Staying at Four Seasons Hotel and met for business dinner. Convenient midtown location. Extremely busy and active for Monday night. Loud inside but did not spoil the food. Shared appetizers and main courses. Both Flatbread and pasta excellent. Tapas as first course a great idea. Liked the marinated mixed olives. Prices very reasonable. The ownership group runs a good operation.... More
