Had to try the cauliflower appetizer and it was delicious . I had the market fish of the day (can't remember the name) and it was delicious . My companion enjoyed the beef filet... More

My husband and I enjoyed a delicious dinner at Etch. We enjoyed the butter tasting (orange chipotle was our favorite), a fish special (spectacular) and the filet (equally delicious). Our server was attentive and charming. There is construction on the street and sidewalk that makes getting into the restaurant a bit less than ideal, but I wouldn't let that dissuade... More

Rather cold and concrete space in an office building is warmed up by nice service and excellent food (we had the signature octopus/shrimp and roasted cauliflower apps and lamb and duck entrees). Overcomes the very minimalist decor.

Our first time there, and we'll definitely go back when in Nashville again. We loved the octopus and shrimp bruschetta and my husband couldn't get over how good the trio was--layered vegetables with a black bean mole sauce and beer sauce. My duck breast was perfect as well. Great service and atmosphere.

We went to Etch for dinner after a song writer's night at The Listening Room since it is around the corner. The food was fantastic and the service was great.

On a raining day after visiting the Frist Center we decided to take in lunch at the Etch. On great thing is they have complimentary valet parking which was a blessing on this type of day and with all the construction going on around that area.
