Came here on a Friday night, and it was nearly empty. Should have been a clue. Waitress was pleasant and there seemed to be some wait staff in training following her around. They don't have a liquor license so she suggested we go to the liquor store a few doors down to get something. I ordered the arugula salad, which... More

We had a most excellent Anniversary Dinner last evening with dishes we had not tried before. To my delight, we had an appetizer of roasted beets with goat cheese and glaze. It was sooo good I had to sop up the juices with the fresh bread so as not to waste one single drop. Eggplant Rollatini was deliciously Italian and... More

Well was just looking for a place to have dinner on a Friday night. The place has good ratings so we gave it a shot. Service was great, menu looks good. Appetizer was awesome (Beets Napoleon). Then came the entree... Ginger-apricot Salmon, was bad, i think it was spoiled so i did not touch much of it and told the... More

Came here with my partner for dinner, brilliant! The waiter was very attentive and the time between courses was appropriate. I had the duck breast and it was fantastic - one of the best meals I've had.. My boyfriend had the cod, and thought the taste was quite bland. I tasted his and thought it was average too.. But I...

The place is the dining room, next to the pizza place. The servers were nice, the food was pretty good. Not sure what to say, it's your typical NJ pizza place with solid Italian food. You can certainly get better in Somerset, but it is good.

I've been to Ecco twice with my wife. I like that it is BYOB, and has reasonable prices. I don't care for the service (training is needed), but the staff is very nice. With one or two people there to properly train the staff, this place would move up a lot in my opinion.

We stay in this area often, to visit relatives. Our expectations are generally pretty low--pizza and Chinese food, a couple of good diners. So we were pretty skeptical of the reviews, but tried Ecco Bistro anyway. I'm so mad we've overlooked this place before! It's adjacent to a pizza place (theirs) so I just never took it seriously. Big mistake.... More
