    The service here was superb, and the food was memorable. Our server offered helpful suggestions with our menu selections. We started with refreshing craft cocktails and the grilled sourdough bread with two flavored butters - one sweet and the other savory. The sweet was with tropical fruits and the savory had chile notes. My husband and I both ordered the daily special - a swordfish steak on a bed of pineapple and chickpeas. The swordfish was beautifully seared and piping hot, which contrasted nicely with the cool pineapple and chickpeas. Our daughter ordered the porcini seared chicken & butternut ravioli. She liked it but wasn't wild about it. We finished dinner with the chocolate malt cake and almond & blueberry streusel tart, which were absolutely delicious. Every dish we received was invitingly plated. We found the patio a lovely place to dine, although, at this time of year, we were in the sun for a short time until the sun dropped lower in the sky. We would love to return the next time we're in town.

    We had a delightful dining experience last night. We were seated on the patio with the pleasant temperature and light breeze. Our server, Morgan, was friendly, helpful, and attentive to our needs. My husband had the tuna special, and I had the catfish and shrimp dish. Both were outstanding! We walked away refreshed and pleasantly full from the wonderful dinner! Great evening!

    Late afternoon meal was delicious. Although the afternoon menu is limited, it has a nice choice of options. I had the tasty patty melt on sourdough bread prepared perfectly. It had just the right amount of sautéed onions and a special dressing. The entree was accompanied with specialty baked potato chips prepared crunchy. Our waitress was excellent, attentive and informative. Our favorite Nashville restaurant.

    Usually ETC is excellent. Mother’s Day was a bust. The kitchen was backed up for some reason. When the Filet’s finally came Out they were undercooked - but we digested them anyway in the interest of time. Normally you all are awesome. Wouldn’t have said anything but you asked for the feedback.

    Hello, thank you for your review. We sincerely appreciate you choosing to celebrate Mother's Day at etc. I'm so sorry to hear that some of your selections fell short of expectations!

We would love the opportunity to speak with you further regarding your visit. Would you mind sharing your contact information with us at your convenience? Thank you in advance for your time!

    The flavor profiles were outstanding, particularly the different sauces. The venison was amazing and the best I have had while the panna cotta was delicious. My wife has celiac disease, and they had a wide variety in which she could eat, including serving her own gluten free bread. The server was very informative with regard to what dishes could be adjusted to meet her requirements. The overall atmosphere was fun and inviting.

    A wonderful meal with exquisite service. Comfortable outdoor seating. We were very late due to a GPS error but the staff were very gracious about that. Waiter was among the best we have ever had, and took time to talk to us about Nashville history. Do not set your GPS to ETC without checking the address as there is an ETC as well as the etc. restaurant! Highly recommended.
