    The food was excellent and the drinks were okay, but not unique or particularly memorable. I never went to the restroom but the rest of the restaurant seemed very clean. The only complaint we had was the end of the service I think our waitress thought we weren't going to tip and so the service plummeted. She was great otherwise.

    Rye bread with malt butter was one of the starters and very good. Monkfish tartlet was excellent The Octopus/shrimp bruschetta was good. All of the entrees including salmon, venison Mahi Mahi were very good. There was a side for the Salmon...maybe charred broccoli?. Not good. We had the Blueberry Pavlova, Ice cream Sundae, Mocha bar which were excellent. If I had room, Would have ordered another dessert round.

    Food and drinks were outstanding! The pork chop dinner was one of the best meals that my husband has ever had. Service was great. My only complaint is that the tables were very close so we could hear the conversations of all those around us and it was difficult to walk between tables to get to the bathroom.

    We had such an amazing meal at Etch! We ate here 3 years ago when we first came to visit Nashville and ended up moving here so we are lucky enough to be able to eat here whenever we want! The food was amazing, we had the Monkfish tart, salmon with couscous, Filet, Chicken and Venison. All delicious and beautifully plated. Service as impeccable.

    We ordered the roasted cauliflower which is a favorite was absolutely amazing. The different sauces were not only tasty but pretty in color. We ordered the beef tenderloin which comes with a potato salad that is spectacular. They bake the potatoes then flash fry them and then make the potato salad. So much flavor and with a little crunch which makes this dish so amazing. The meat was so tender and seasoned perfectly! We highly recommend this beautiful establishment for the food, service and ambiance.

    I for one have never appreciated pimento cheese until the Etch charcuterie board. The entrees were delicious and our party of four shared a little of each with one another. Great presentation as well. And the coconut milk desert did taste just like a pina collada.

    EtchResponded on September 14, 2022Hi Kristi, thank you for your kind words! It’s a pleasure knowing that your recent visit to Etch was so memorable. The charcuterie board is always a must try! We appreciate your patronage and hope to see you back again in the near future!
