Description: 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.

I have been to Ecco a few times now, and last night took a large group. This place is a jewel in Atlanta. The Mediterrenean menu is so diverse, that anyone can find some great choices. The tapas choice is unlimited as to the combo nations you can share, the service (Abbey) was perfect, and the wine list and knowledge were excellent. I like when a restaurant doesn't gouge the wine lover. I dine in Atlanta a lot, with both clients and friends, and this place is in my top 3!

It has a phenomenal reputation to being with and the experience doesn't disappoint. Not only is the restaurant stunning on the inside, but god almighty, the food. The food is incredible. The fact that they have a roof top garden they pick from is just wonderful. Fantastic experience. Would love to eat there again!

We bought a dinner and show combo pack with the Fox to see Mannheim Steamroller. We have been to several high end restaurants but I particularly liked this one. It was open and friendly, the waiter was Pablo and he was excellent. There are lots of couples tables which I liked. We sat in the middle. I was disappointed in the wine list because the by the glass selections were very limited. We ordered from the bar instead. The Bombay Sapphire martini was the best I have ever had, no exceptions. The entrees were very good and was served so quick we were surprised. My wife got the cedar plank Mahi (we call it Dolphin in Florida) and it was spectacular. Made me rethink how I prepare it at home. I had the seafood spaghetti and it was wonderful, the pasta was fresh as was the seafood. Portion control is used here. They want you to experience the entire experience of their restaurant, which I am not against, we just weren't in that kind of mood. Would've liked more of the entree. Time got tight so we didn't get any dessert . My son had the Wood Fire Pizza. He's 18 and it just wasn't enough but he enjoyed it very much. I could go on about the food so if you want more detail feel free to ask. I will return with just my wife and do the full experience some time in the future. Wine ranged from $35-$100+ a bottle, pretty standard. Looks to be a 100% markup also standard.

Food was way below expectations. Good service, wine list, etc. But the dishes were flat and unappealing and were served at diner-like speed. The shrimp toast was inedible, served on wet/soggy focaccia with lardo draped over the top with mushrooms & shrimp underneath. Not only visually unappetizing - but a mix of flavors you do not want to combine under any circumstances. Wood oven pizza was forgettable and the house made bucatini was extremely flavorless. We wanted to love it- but could not. Sorry Ecco. Maybe we were there on an off night?

Ecco does all parts of restauranting very well. The decor and atmosphere are pleasant, modern and fresh (for lack of a better word), service is professional, friendly and knowledgeable. The food is fresh, well prepared and innovative.
We were 5 and all had great meals with the exception of one overcooked pizza which was re-done without an attitude and sincere apologies.
If you are planning a first visit to Ecco, don't leave without tasting the fried goat cheese with honey and the olive oil chocolate sea salt ice cream.
