Gnocchi is to die for. Great friendly service. Great menu.
Was amazing food and experience. Can’t wait to visit again
Did select bar but it was sitting in front of the Food service bar. May be good to list that in the selection as I would not chosen it normally
Beautiful set menu - each course was carefully considered with a delicious combination of tastes. Great friendly service! Just lovely!
The food always fabulous but on the night were we there, a ‘new’ waiter was serving us and ther was issues with her level of service, eg leaked red on the table when pouring and didn’t wipe it from the table, didn’t place cutlery on the table and tossed the dessert spoon to the other side of table, bagged the plates down , when clearing was placing the cutlery on top and making loads of noise. Lent over the table to service courses rather than doing it from the side. She obviously doesn’t have the experience to work in one of the top restaurants in Brisbane. We felt this level of service was not conducive with the tempo of the restaurant and distracted us from a beautiful dinner. The one waiter was aware and then she took over the service towards the end of the night.
Minus the issue with the waiter it was a pleasant environment and we will be back in the future.
Stunning! One of the best meals I've ever eaten and excellent service/value.
We had a memorable family evening, with everyone loving their meal. Thank you, we'll definitely be back.
This was our third visit to the restaurant and as usual I was blown away by the amazing food, intimate setting and fabulous staff. I can't say enough good things about this place you must try it.
Had a lovely night. Great food and service, and lively
We sat in the corner behind the curtain and it was very comfortable. The shyer waitress was very nice and took time to explain the dishes, the other I assume more experienced one was a bit more rushed.
Beef was excellent, salmon was a little too salty for our palletes. Deserts were nice but I wondered if the cheese should be served on a dark plate and the cheesecake on a light plate.
Some of the plating was a little messy. E.g. Unknown liquid not wiped off
Overall food was nice environment was good waitresses were lovely
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening on Saturday night. Exceptional service & exquisite food. Thank you - we have all committed to return!!
The food was an artistic balance of flavours and textures and totally divine. Our French server was warm and friendly. A must do restaurant for any Brisbanite wanting the wow factor experience.
This wonderful restaurant has it all great food excellent service and a happy place to enjoy a wonderful lunch with friends
The food was great, everything went together so well. The staff were also extremely friendly and helpful.
Excellent food. Always. Great way to spend an evening meal with multiple courses.
Great place to eat. Very friendly and helpful service. Delicious set menu.
Excellent pairing of wine with food! Always maintaining or raising the bar.
Amazing food with delicious flavour combinations.
E'cco Bistro has been a long time favourite of mine. The new set menus and pairing wines are amazing, the staff are so attentive and the ambience is perfect. Highly recommend.
As always, E’CCO didn’t disappoint. Everything was excellent.
We hadn't been to Ecco since their move, but it was great to see that the quality has stayed the same. The set priced menu for Friday lunch was good value - the food was generously proportioned and delicious as always. The only disappointment was that our first choice of a rose to accompany our fish was unavailable, and the wine we ended up with wasn't really suitable. Perusing the wine list on our phones is not an ideal way to see all the offerings.
I didn't realise that it was a degustation menu as some of the guests were adverse to some of the courses.
Nonethe less they tried very hard to compensate and replace some of those dishes.
Staff were very welcoming and food was amazing. Will definitely be back!
We were gifted with a voucher for a recent milestone Birthday and we finally managed to make the booking for the set dinner menu. It was a wonderful evening, the food amazing, the professionalism and service also amazing. Well done guys on a wonderful experience.
I have already been talking about the night to friends and colleagues.
I didn’t realise it was a set menu now but despite my trepidation it was amazing. The Maître de was fantastic and he made the night even more special with great wine suggestions. Top class.
Great service! Food was delicious and cocktails were even better!
A little disappointing to be honest. Very nice food, but also very loud and the service was distracted at best. For that price it was a let down.
Excellent Friday lunch with good choices for the set menu
Well worth the visit. Food and service was excellent.
We hadn’t been to E’cco for many years, and always loved it in the past. And we were not disappointed this time; the 5-course set menu (during Covid) was brilliant - adventurous, really tasty, perfectly sized portions. And seated up at the bar we felt we had enjoyed not just beautiful food, but great theatre as well, with a view across the whole restaurant and into the kitchen. The menu changes every two weeks - it’s tempting to go again very soon!
A beautiful set menu of outstanding taste and appearance. My wife's main course was substituted for a beautiful seafood dish at her request.
Fish and lamb dishes were fantastic
One out of the four dishes was not the best (but just my personal taste, it looked great on the plate) but overall, great food.
We had an amazing meal, the service was friendly and intimate. Enjoyed every aspect.
Utterly incredible...… as always ! We absolutely love this restaurant.
Just brilliant. Food exquisite, service impeccable. Just love Phillip’s fortnightly set menus. The ricotta with basil granita fresh figs and honey vinegar was out of this world. Book now for a sublime food experience!
E'cco Bistro - a truly wonderful experience. Chef Johnson has maintained such a high standard over such a long period of time. Fabulous, accessible, representative food.
We had a great evening second time back thanking all the staff who contributed
We enjoyed the food quality and the general ambience. Staff were very helpful and attentive.
We loved being there on Friday for lunch
The food and service was amazing
I love recommending E’cco to my friends
Thank you for a wonderful experience
Presentation and quality of food was beautiful. On leaving and paying our waitress spoke openly about the balance of my account which embarrased my partner. Generally those matters should I believe be in confidence. Thank you again for such a great night.
E'cco has been one of Brisbane's premier restaurants for many years. Tune food is always creative and excellent
Good food and service. I will definitely go back to E’cco!
