    Over the top as usual! My guest and I celebrated his birthday with lunch at etc., and we started with the cauliflower appetizer which is always a sure thing. Then we proceeded to and order of the lamb meatballs. These are so good that I have no words to describe them. Next we shared the warm burrata cheese with Middle Easten tomato sauce-such great flavor combinations. We ended our experience on the olive cake with burnt orange ice cream. Scrumptious!

    UPDATE: I was contacted by management after this review and was pleased that they took it seriously. After that nice conversation, I will give it another try as I have always been happy in the past. Everyone can have an off night. Thank you to management. I have been a customer here for years, so was completely surprised and disappointed by the experience last night. Won’t be likely to return. The food was good, but the flavors all over the place, not harmonious. I ordered the special, Swordfish, at the servers suggestion as I was torn between several dishes, and although I heard the ingredients, I did not hear that it was basically a panzanella salad topped with the fish and sauce. I was not interested in a cold dish. All tasty but WAY too much dressing with a lot of acid. And never got my side dish-not even sure if I paid for it as I was just ready to go by the time the check was dropped. It was a big anniversary and it was acknowledged, but usually in the past, there has been a bit more of a special outreach to feel celebratory.

We're committed to providing five-star cuisine coupled with excellent service throughout the experience. Unfortunately, it sounds as though we fell short, and I sincerely apologize for missing the mark here. We'd love to speak with you more about your experience-- would you mind sharing your contact information with us?

    Etc. is a regular treat when we spend the weekend in Nashville. This was our 10th visit to etc. And as all the previous times, it was delicious and exquisite. We were seated 10 minutes before our reservations by and kind and polite host team. Our server was quick to our table and very well versed in the menu options. We always begin the bread and assorted butter starter, which is grilled sour dough crisp and light accompanied by various butter options. We ordered the small portion which was 4 nice size slices of bread. The large plate would have been too much for a couple. My wife ordered the cornmeal catfish which is delightfully prepared cauliflower remoulade, hushpuppy bread pudding, roasted celery root sauce, watercress oil, smoked apple coulis ,kale and radicchio ,fennel, green onion and beet hot sauce, The dish popped with taste which caused our taste buds to “mmmm” after every bite. I ordered the special for the evening- the Covina fish, a light flaky white fish pan seared over a grilled potato cube adorned with various greens and a beautifully light sweet sauce. It was fantastic and a wonderful spring dish. The service was quick and the entrees was steaming hot. Another wonderful dinner at our favorite Nashville spot!

    It took about ten to twenty minutes for our waiter to do anything. We asked for dessert menus and waited ten minutes for those, and another ten for him to come back to take our order. We got charged for an entree we didn’t order, and were served the wrong flavor of ice cream without him telling us (peanut by the way). Overall, little to no flavor, expensive for what it is, and bad service.

    It was our first time here at Etc. This restaurant was a 10/10. Excellent customer service with staff. It was a pleasure to meet Ed Sullivan, who is the assistant manager. He was there to see if we had any needs throughout our dinner. The restaurant truly cares about the customers at their wonderful establishment. Very great experience. We will most definitely come back.

    We dine here on the regular and always look forward to the holiday menus. This one, though, was disappointing. The service was slow - waited almost an hour between appetizers and salad - and the food was average which was unusual. It just seemed the standards had slipped for this meal. This is an outstanding restaurant, so hopefully this was an anomaly.
