Friends from Nashville said this was their favorite place. They were so right. The food was fabulous. The wine list was expansive. Our waiter, Lane, really knew the offerings and his recommendations were excellent. Definitely make your reservations now!

If you would like something that is not deep fried or BBQ this is a heaven in Nashville Tennesse. I have never, ever, tasted such an interesting mix of spices and ingredients anywhere in the World. The chef is just superb. Excellent wine menu and service too. However, limited space so make a reservation as it is very popular amongst both locals and visitors. If I come back to Nashville I will most certainly visit again. And it is not expensive either!

We went Friday evening and sat at the Chef's bar. The waiter Eric was a great server and made us feel real comfortable. The Tuna salad was amazing. The lamb, filet, cauliflower, and butter tastings are awesome too. I would recommend to anyone. Anyone who says the portions are small are mistaken for sure. We took half our meal with us! Chef Deb even came over and said hi which was a real treat! Thank you so much Etch and keep up the good work!

Our first visit to ETCH was so good that we couldn't wait to return two weeks later. The menu is well-designed and the selections that we've enjoyed were among the best we've had in Nashville. The atmosphere is sophisticated- casual, the staff is very attentive, and the location is great for going to the symphony or the Bridgestone Arena after dinner.
