This was on our places to try while we were in Nashville. Food was good and the service was good and friendly. Glad we went.

Beautiful food! We both had salads. They were fresh and delicious! Toasted bread with oil added to the meal! Our waitress Chrissy was amazing !

We stopped into Etch during our trip to Nashville, based on a friend’s recommendation. it’s a beautiful restaurant with a great menu and thoughtful service. Unfortunately, there was a mixup with our order in the kitchen. The manager, Robert, immediately came out and apologized for...the delay and offered us a complimentary dessert. And timed tickets for a museum and so couldn’t take him up on the offer… He asked us to come back after we were done and told us he would take care of us then. True to his word, when we stopped back, he personally served us and was so gracious. Totally recommend coming here for anyone visiting… or if you’re local.More

Understated from the street, but lively and sophisticated inside. My husband and I discovered Etch while visiting Nashville and were very impressed! The food was delicious and beautifully presented, as was the service. Jordan, our server, was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and, as we...are vegans, recommended plant based options for us. The sommelier, Rob, recommended an outstanding wine, the best we’d had in some time. Etch is definitely a place we will return to the next time we come to Nashville! You will not be disappointed 😊More

4 of us had a great lunch at Etch. We didn’t have a booking but they found us a table quickly. We had a roasted cauliflower starter with three different sauces followed by a selection of main courses - catfish, Italian sausage pasta, fish tostadas...and Korean chicken; all were good. It was nice to see food that’s a bit different from the standard American menu. The deserts, wine and beer selection and good service all made for a very enjoyable lunch. Highly recommended.More

The food and service was excellent. Carter was very attentive and accommodating providing us with excellent service. It is a hidden gem away from the main hustle of Broadway in Nashville. They have a great wine list as well. We would definitely go back.

We had dinner reservations for 445, arrived about 10 minutes early and we were seated right away. Our server, Chrissy, was exceptional! We had a severe food allergy in our group, Alpha Gal, and the Chef went above and beyond! The drinks, appetizers and main...course was outstanding! The service, again, was nothing short of amazing. The filet, melted in my mouth. The fried potato salad is a must!More

This is a nice restaurant within a block or so of Broadway. It was fine dining at it's best. The service was A++. The food was A+. It was our anniversary and we had a card signed by the staff waiting at our table which...was a really nice touch!More

Lisa G. was our server and she was very attentive and made great recommendations. We started with the cauliflower appetizer to share and the sauces were amazing. We were seated in front of the open kitchen which we enjoyed. For entrees I had the lamb...meatballs on Lisa G’s recommendation and I loved every bite. My husband had the chef’s creation which featured pork and he loved it. As we finished our meals we agreed that it was the best dinner we’ve had in years. Our compliments to the Chef! Our best meal in Nashville.More

The food here is spot on. Unfortunately it is a bit pricey. And for the price paid, you would expect much better service. Extremely slow with bar service. Our waitress seemed to be off - asking the same question multiple times. She was also quite...un-attentive when drinks needed refills, etc. We would pick somewhere else to try before we would go back to this place.More

A lovely restaurant with a nice size menu. Service was outstanding. When we told the waiter that we had Celiac, a manager came over to make sure that everything was to our satisfaction. I've been dealing with Celiac for 4 years, and I have never...had that happen. True attention to details. Get the octopus bruschetta. You won't regret it! I had the scallops and they were divine. I wanted to lick my plate!More

Had an unforgettable meal last night at etch, after braving the frigid temps and treacherous sidewalks! Started with the shrimp and octopus bruschetta—amazing appetizer shared by me and my adult son. Mounds of arugula and a delicious sauce make this pop with the perfectly cooked...seafood. We shared the Caesar, it was very good, spicy, but I think next time (yes, there will be one!) I would skip the salad if we get a starter for just 2 of us. For entrees, I got the lamb meatballs, served on a bed of very tasty grits with a pesto dollop, while my son got the scallops. Everything was impeccable, plated beautifully and cooked to perfection. We then shared a scoop of the goat cheese house made ice cream—to die for! Service from Kevin and team was on point without being overbearing. View out our window table was lovely. We will be back!More
