Excellent staff, set menu was delicious especially with paired wines. Never disappoints.
Food and service is outstanding ! I have never been disappointed.
Food was delicious and service and atmosphere were great! Can’t wait to go back
Still remains one of the best places in Brisbane. Food is unique but always amazing. We had a great experience for a small birthday celebration
was full house. tucker and service was sensational
Super service and even better food. The gnocci .. what can I say .. an amazing dish. Restaurant was noisy but manageable and the facilities beautiful. We will be back.
We really enjoyed our Lunch
Staff really attentive & on the ball
We are regular visitors to Ecco Bistro as their set menus are always inventive and delicious. This is probably one of the best food combinations served up yet. Excellent service. Only suggestion is that the wine list could be expanded a little (incl. by the glass options). Would strongly recommend.
The food was amazing, the evening was 10/10. The staff were very helpful and even suprised us with a decorative desert saying Happy Anniversary
It was my first visit . I really enjoyed the food and wine. The rest of the party agreed. Will definitely return.
Outsanding and creative cousres.
Wine list a tad expensive
Great lunch. The restaurant was full but comfortable. The wait staff were excellent. We are going to make it a regular event. 😀
Always 5-star. Never fails to be delicious and a great experience. That's why we keep going back!
Beautiful food well priced live the idea of a set menu would definitely go back
An absolutely fantastic dining experience! The food was incredible, the service was excellent, could not fault anything. We will definitely be back!
It was a memorable experience all round food,service and ambiance and it was great to catch up with Phillip after what must be over twenty years and talk about some of the characters in the industry !! Cheers john burns and cheryl boland
In its latest incarnation the bistro Ecco really delivers on superb food and different taste combinations in its 5 course set menu. Excellent and knowledgeable service and a good range of drinks. I know the food is good when I find myself licking my lips!
Great Menu and service!
This place ticks every box. I consider it the perfectly executed dining experience and would not hesitate in recommending it to others. This is how fine dining should be done.
We had a great time. Food was Supra’s always. Would have preferred not to have to choose all 3 courses at the start but otherwise all good!
Food was superlative. Every morsel was a taste experience. Service was excellent. They went above and beyond for our son’s birthday, when I hadn’t even booked it with that expressly indicated. We loved every minute of the evening.
Outstanding food, knowledgeable service and an excellent atmosphere makes Ecco Bistro an absolute dining choice for special occasions or just a great night out in Brisbane.
The servers at E'cco are delightful, and the tasting menu more than satisfying. Portions are significant and the gnocchi is the best I've ever eaten. The cheese course was a little too abstract for me - shredded aged cheese with a very sweet pear and honeycomb chips - and the flavors too sweet and not balanced. Dessert was nice, but the highlight was the first three courses.
Four of us went to celebrate a retirement, stunning food. My favourite restaurant.
I absolutely love this restaurant. Each meal looks like decorative art and tastes amazing! Thank you to the wonderful ecco team! X
Although the 3course menu was good, we felt a 2course would be far better, too much food for lunch. Great service and pleasant dining.
Never disappointed at Ecco. Very impressed by the way they’ve responded to challenges of COVID (menus, modes of delivery, etc)
We were at E'cco to celebrate our first visit to E'cco almost years ago to the date. We have been many times during that period and the food is always brilliant - some very interesting flavour combinations, and the staff are excellent. Our first preference for special occasions.
Delicious food, wine and friendly staff. We loved it!
Time between courses got longer and longer, we had the reservation for 6.30pm (arrived at 6.25pm) and was served the last (5th) course at 9.40pm. We seemed to have been constantly overlooked as other tables who had arrived after us were served ahead of us. Food was nice and to be fair, the restaurant was very busy that night.
Food was amazing..
service was amazing
Cant wait to go back
A beautiful dinner with simplicity, creativity and flavour being the key ingrediants to what was a fantastic meal.
Our second visit in 3 months, and the set menu was just as innovative, well presented and tasty as the previous one. We've never had a bad experience at e'cco yet. Long may that continue!
Another wonderful dinner
Many thanks to all the team kitchen & service
We had dinner recently for Valentines night & we frequently dine out.
Food was good.
Service was pretty unprofessional (like the staff have been there for too long & so it felt like they were just wanting to get through it).
Music was loud 80’s top hits, which was hardly fitting for a restaurant of this style &/or at all a romantic ambiance.
After letting a staff member know the music was too loud & not fitting, they told us to tell another staff member as it was their choice of music.
We paid at the table & were chased in the carpark as that staff member was unaware we had paid.
Perhaps if the front of house staff, were more professional & as such, communicated to each other, the experience would be greater than 3* star.
Food was amazing and suggested wines very well matched.
Fantastic food with a pescatarian option, great matched wine list and the service from our servers was exceptional - will definitely be back
Simply put, E’cco is one of the best restaurants in Brisbane. Food, wine, ambience, service and staff — all excellent. It’s become my go-to for celebrations and I really can’t send enough praise its way.
Phillip Johnson never fails to impress!
Such quality service and incredible flavours, an air of professionalism in the air simultaneously making you feel like your dining on your own restaurant!
Can’t wait to return...
Ecco never disappoints. I requested some menu alterations in advance due to pregnancy and was presented with such wonderful alternatives. Amazing service even in a very busy and full period. Highly recommend.
