This little treat in the heart of Bearden makes any night of the week feel special. The staff make you feel like family from the moment they greet you at the door. The service is attentive but not overbearing. The ambiance is warm and romantic. Perfect for date night and small groups. The bar is also easy for great cocktails,... More

Recently celebrated our anniversary at Echo. Starting with the special bread and pesto we enjoyed great meals of Shrimp Smithfield and the Oriental Chinatown Express (both recommended). As usual rhe food was fabulous and the service and concern for us was more than to be expected. J Rawe

Both the filet and Dover sole were excellent. Try the Tennessee Apple Jack for dessert. This is a small chef owned establishment with great service.

You have probably driven by Echo a million times and not realized it is there or noticed it and didn't think any further of it. Well stop that and get yourself a reservation! How this place isn't packed is beyond me. The food is super delicious. I could make a meal of just the bread and pesto...and I don't normally... More

We eat here often with my husbands business. I have never had a bad meal from Echo. We have tried a variety of the dishes on the menu and have yet to be disappointed. The chef always come out table side to ask about any food allergies, or if he can prepare anything special for anyone. They have an extensive... More

We went to Echo Bistro on a Saturday night with another couple, and judge it to be a very good, credible option for fine dining in Knoxville. I think that Bistro By the Tracks and Primo are a bit better, and the Orangery is a bit worse. When we arrived, we asked for a table that had not been set... More

Echo consistently offers excellent food, service, and atmosphere. A great place to dine as a couple or with a group of friends. Interesting and unique menu choices, and the owner/chef Seth Simmerman is willing to accommodate any dietary restrictions.

Thank bcjohnston
