The chef who conceives of and executes the menu is fantastic. Cheese ice cream? Yes please. Roasted cauliflower with delicious accompaniment sauces that I can't even describe? Keep it coming. Fresh cobia of the day served with a black bean sauce, quinoa, cauliflower and mushroom mixture? I will have seconds please. You can't go wrong with the menu. Everything is... More

All four of us had the Argentine beef dish for lunch. There was a pepper sauce on one side of the dish, chimichuri sauce on the other side and a vinagrette dressing on the salad greens which were piled on top of the steak and "fried potato salad" (which I thought was underwhelming). It cost us $4.50 extra for four... More

We went to Etch for dinner after seeing reviews that raved about both the food and experience. We left feeling that we had a good meal that wasn't anything special but was quite expensive. The appetizer was the highlight, which was a tuna ceviche with a delicious bean purée as the base. The scallops were cooked perfectly but the mushrooms... More

Amazing. Sat at the chefs counter. Enjoyed a nice bottle of Pinos Gris to wash down tuna and Andy had the chefs special cauliflower which was excellent. Followed by special of the day, and scallops. Delicious. Glad we went.

I dinned with a large group, and the private room was great. Excellent service - friendly and knowledgable. Food was not the usual Nashville southern fair, and it was also very good.
