I like this place. It is go to place for girls night out. Great wine and charcuterie selection. We usually stick to the appetizers. There is valet service behind the building. It is expensive but I think it is worth it

I have been to Ecco twice this past year and have yet to be disapointed. My boyfriend and I have always received stellar service and amazing food. This restaurant is definitely one of my favorite here in Atlanta. I recommend this restaurant to anyone who is intrigued by foods out of the ordinary, that are fresh, and never the same. Might I suggest, if it is your first time, as I do in any restaurant, always get the small bites to share and slowly throughout the night, if you like it, order more and move on to a bigger course! I truly feel that a restaurant's smaller bites are what distinguishes it from a good to an extraordinary restaurant. If a chef and his staff are taking the time and care into a smaller dish, you know the the entrees will be amazing!

From all the great reviews, I thought this would be super-awesome and it was a little ho-hum. There were some okay flavors, like in the lentil-chorizo ragout, but nothing really burst with flavor or made me say 'I would definitely come back just for this dish.' The service was very good once they sat us in the booth the waiter said he could not seat us in (likely so he could keep more people in his area).

What got us off to a poor start was when they brought us cold (like fridge cold) bread. That is a big pet peeve of mine, and not something I would expect of such a highly rated restaurant.

The picked vegetables were pretty good, but they were clearly pickled in pure vinegar. They were hard to eat, but addictive at the same time.

The sausage pizza was just okay. Nothing special here.

The dessert was weird. My wife is pregnant and I told the waitress so. They gave us chocolate balls with cognac in it. Okay, so the cognac is cooked off, but dark chocolate has a bunch of caffeine in it, which is not great for pregnant ladies. It also had an unsweetened cocoa powder on it that made it very hard to eat. We couldn't finish them.

we got there at 8pm on a beautiful sunday evening and for some reason the hostess was averse to seating us outside. we said we wanted a table outside and she said the wait would be an hour. which was a blatant lie to discourage us from waiting for an outside spot. there was literally not one single person waiting ahead of us. so I said ok we will wait, and she was clearly surprised that we called this bluff. A table became available for us in less than 5 minutes, which she begrudgingly acknolwedged to us, but then she intentionally took about 25 minutes to clear it and seat us. It was so weird. The patio was full of people so it is a total mystery to me why we were unwanted outside.

And ditto on the fern pizza - it's funky and no good. Plus the pizzas are teeny tiny. Pappardelle is great.

Let me first say, this was completely my fault, and not the restaurant's. I love Ecco. Think it's a great concept, has outstanding service and the space is beautiful.

Went there recently for dinner and they had a pizza on the menu that had fiddlehead ferns, mushrooms, talleggio, and aged balsamic. I love fiddlehead ferns and their only in season in the spring, so we went for it. In my fern enthusiasm, I forgot, however, that I have an amazing dislike for talleggio cheese. I first had it on a hotdog at Ormsby's, and instantly vowed never to eat it again. Maybe it's different when it's not melted, but this over-powering queso has a fairly stinky taste and a REALLY stinky smell. And so much of food's taste depends on the smell.

Thankfully, we had ordered a bunch of apps and weren't even that hungry when I made the boneheaded order... I could only handle two slices. Should have gone with the magarita pie.

I think for someone in their late-late 20's, I've had the opportunity to sample a nice array of Atlanta's top restaurants. I have a good enough memory, that if given a directory, I could probably list just about every place I've been to and whether I liked it or not. However, it would be a bit more difficult to tell you specifically what I liked about each place. In other words, if you ask "why should I go there?" there might only be a handful of places I could give you a convincingly definitive answer. Ecco is in that handful.

As I'm writing this review it has been more than a year since my one and only visit, and that now seems plain irresponsible on my part. From that one visit, I remember the wood-fired pizza I ordered being quite good, but I couldn't tell you which one it was. My most intensely lingering recollection from the exeperience was the fried goat cheese with honey and black pepper. I've never had anything quite like it. These brilliant golden sweet little nuggets seemed so simple. Why aren't they standard fare at every restaurant? I wanted to order a bucket full of them. They are that good.

If you're like me, and you find that some of these upscale trendy dining halls often begin to blur together, go to Ecco and order the fried goat cheese. Over a year later I still can't get it out of my head.

My last meal at Ecco was a suprising disappointment. We ordered appetizer/pizza and nothing the kitchen put out came together as a dish. The squid was a wannabe salad with lettuce and tomato thrown in and the pork belly- well, cut it up like Spam and put on rye toast can make for a fatty, dry dish. The winter squash on the pizza was terrific but the pie itself just lacked something.
The meat and cheese tray we ordered is always delicious so we did not leave hungry (the bread is so amazing). I am hoping on my next visit I will have good food- I don't need to be wowed by how many ingredients you can add to something.

We recently held a Rehearsal Dinner at Ecco in their lovely "back" room. The food was wonderful and the staff was absolutely perfect. They attended to our every need. The atmsophere of the restaurant is very elegantly relaxed.

In addition, the Sales Manager who helped me plan the event was extremely helpful and made the planning process a breeze.

I would recommend Ecco without hesitation for a romantic dinner or for a group event.

Thanks!

This was my first trip back to Atlanta in many years. I have a huge amount of fond memories of dining in Atlanta. Great food and friendly people enticed me to move there on more than one occasion. This was the second of two very sad nights out with friends in Midtown. The guy who brought us the water knew more about the menu than any one of the 4 persons who could have been our waiter/waitress. We are still taking bets on that one as we never seemed to consistently see the same person twice in a row.

To say the service was poor would be an understatement and the quality of food was poor at best considering a Sunday night and light crowd, well considering anytime for the price paid. To top off the night the parking attendant was nowhere to be found so we retrieved our own keys to escape this train wreck of service. I still love Atlanta, but two bad outings in one week is unheard of for your fair city...now, where is that water boy.

I have been to Ecco many many times and every time it is great. Drinks are good, service is friendly and food is always outstanding. I have tried almost everything on the menu and can't find one item I would not recommend. our party was late arriving and even at 1030pm the kitchen was spot on. I even asked for a special vegetarian request not on the menu and it was no problem. I would seek out Ecco for a casual evening or a special event.

Excellent atmosphere and food. Was invited by a friend and had the pizza which was fresh and wonderful! Reminded me of a local restaurant in Tuscany. Great assortment of apps - calamari to die for! Urban atmosphere.

Yeah, I love this place, never been disappointed. I dine out 3-4 nights a week and always come back here to "regroup". I laugh when I see remarks that this place is expensive - when is the last time these suburbanites ate out - 1985? Try a steak joint - now that is expensive! Anyway, I love the App menu and the carafes of boutique wines. I love the Manager - sommelier Vajra, he always recommends something great and priced right (he's pretty funny too). The best way to experience Ecco is to walk in with a big smile, grab a nice drink at the bar, chat up the super nice bar staff (guys and girls!) and share about 4 things on the menu with a friend (starting with a thin crusty pizza)......doesn't get much better than that folks.

I went to Ecco for the first time the other night on a strong reccomendation from a friend. She said she dines there often and has yet to be dissapointed. I did a little research and found out that they are owned by Fifth Group Restaurants, who own another restaurant in The Virginia Highlands, La Tavola, that I have been to before.

Let me just say that I was very impressed. From the moment I pulled my car up to the valet (complimentary) to when I left, everyone I spoke to was extremely polite and genuine. The atmosphere was warm and inviting, with a lively buzz coming from the busy dining room. Our hostess sat us along the wall where my wife got a great view of the open kitchen. Within moments we were greeted by our server who happily gave us first timers a quick rundown of the menu and wine list making suggestions along the way. We decided on a bottle of wine that the server informed us was only available at Ecco. I was a bit wary about this at first, but my fears were quickly put to rest when the bottle appeared, and the glasses were poured. It was magnificent. I can't remember the name, but I do remember that it was a traditionally Spanish varietal, but grown in California.

Now onto the food. We followed most of our server's suggestions, and handed him the menus. Within moments our Meat and Cheese platter arrived, along with an order of Fried Goat Cheese drizzled with Honey and black pepper (A must have!). For our main entrees I chose the grilled tenderloin and my wife had the seared duck breast, and we shared a side of braised kale and some roasted potatoes. These too were outstanding and the wine accompanied the food beautifully. My beef tenderoin was cooked to a perfect temperature as was my wife's duck. Unfortunately we were too full for desert, but they did have a few interesting selections that I hope to try in the near future. I will definately be back soon. A truly A+ experience.

I loved this place. Friendly barstaff. Piquillo (sp?) peppers stuffed with some sort of mushroom medley were UNREAL. Our waiter was good -- knew his stuff on wine. Crispy pork entree excellent. My date loved it too - we shared everything and enjoyed it all. I will be back soon.

Went to Ecco for the first time last night. Took my wife to celebrate her birthday. It was a surprise for her and a very pleasant one. The menu as fantastic, the service was great, and the fried goat cheese was to die for. Very memorable experience.

The server knew what he was talking about and gave the perfect recommendations. What made it especially unique was that the menu was less about "dishes" and more about food. I like that the menu started with "meats and cheeses" and encouraged sharing.

We did the "Speck" prosciutto and mild salami with gouda. Brought with that was the fried goat cheese with honey and black pepper. Glorious! After that the arugula salad was the best ever and contained almonds, dates and diced pecarino cheese. Next up was the pizza. The misses had selected the tomato, mozzarella and basil, and I had the eggplant and peppers. both were flat-bread, about the same size as the menu and perfect. We each had about three pieces left over to take home. Next was dessert, which we split. The chocolate-caramel tart was very unique and refreshing in its taste, like it had been thought out and prepared very carefully.

The ambiance is typical of Atlanta's finer, trendier "urban" restaurants.

Pros: Nice atmosphere, free valet parking, interesting menu, knowledgeable and friendly waiter, and plenty of eye candy both in the clientele and the staff.

Cons: $11 for a simple gin and tonic and don't come with a large group unless you're all in one car or everyone is timely. We booked our reservation over a week in advance for a birthday celebration including six people. They made us wait for our table for over an hour until all six arrived. - Never again.

Ecco was a great experience. From the moment I sat down I was warmly greeted by my server. I had a great time. The food and drinks were marvelous. I had cod and my buddy had the steak. Both were absolutely FABULOUS. They have pomme frittes (french fries) that are fresh cut and sweet and salty (just as good as McDonalds, not as fattening!) I recommend this place to anyone who enjoys Italian and American. It's a combination of both. The place is well lit for a "dark" area, and the atmosphere is great.

The service here is outstanding along with the food choices. I highly recommend the fried goat cheese as an appetizer. It is truly excellent. We ordered several small plates and loved all of them. Also, the location in the heart of midtown is great and we had no problem with the parking situation and it was a friday night, as well. Oh! And the wine selection is phenomenal. We had a couple of different white wines with our dinner and loved all of them. Also, the bar is neat to sit at if you would like to simply enjoy a drink. I will definitely be back. We loved this place.

I've been to Ecco twice. The first time, we had the cheese and meat platter. We all loved it, but it was so expensive. I feel like I could go to a grocery store and select some nice cheese and meat and make that platter myself for a lot cheaper. So if you want to splurge, then go for it. The service was not good. Our server kept spitting on us when he was talking, which totally spoiled my appetite. The food we chose was not good at all. I left Ecco hungry and not satisfied.

The second time, was a lot better than the first. We had a bottle of wine, which was very good. Our server was kind and friendly, and the food we selected was a lot better than the first time we went. It was still pricey, but I didn't have a terrible experience like the last time.

I would have to go back and experience it one last time before I can say that I like Ecco.

Great atmosphere and knowledgeable staff. I was hesitant after reading a few bad reviews but found them to be inaccurate. We were greated warmly at the door and everyone we came in contact with was helpful and friendly. The fried goat cheese is a MUST. If you don't like it save your receipt and I will personally reimburse you. We will definately be back!

If you don't like it save your receipt and I will personally reimburse you. We will definately be back!

We had a wonderful time. Melissa was a down to earth, lovely lady. I confess I was expecting another snotty kid who had an expensive haircut and 10 minutes of wine knowledge under his belt. Instead our server Melissa was delightful! Food very good. Everybody was so friendlly there, even the customers.

Fun cocktails and a lovely wine list. We tried several wines.

I love the tapas, goat cheese, mussels, olives so much I think the entrees pale a bit in comparison.

Great part of town with a lot of energy. There was a comment from another reviewer about panhandlers. Well dear, that's the whole down town experience. If you want lots of parking lots and something predictable - Olive Garden in the suburbs is open!

I have to say I have eaten here many times and have enjoyed the food and ambience to a large degree. BUT on a series of recent visits over the past few months not so great. Lately this place has become dirty and the waiters have become rude and robotic. There's no passion in this place anymore. I had to ask for a new glass twice before I received one without dried food stuck to the side of it. I ordered a $150 bottle of champagne at the bar before dinner, and the bartender began pouring it around for his friends sitting next to me and then afterward asked me if it was ok. I suppose they feel comfortable, because I was a frequent customer, but this is my bottle Tobiass is pouring without regard. I probably would have overlooked it, but I can't do it anymore. I just left there feeling a bit shocked. The food is ok, but with this type of service you get, it doesn't matter. I think this place has seen its peak and is on a downward slope. It's not the same magical atmosphere that it used to be...beware.

stay away from this place unless you wana be ripped off . i had dinner there a few months back with a friend and to start the portions are so small your finish it in two bites. the service is all aditude and not nice or helpfull mostly everything consist of bread and cheese.. its very very nosiy so nosiy that you cant have a conversation with the person next to you without screaming almost . they rush you threw bring out entrees while eating appitzers which we dont like. but the worst thing that happend is when we got our bill i payed and the waiter took my card and charged it someones elses bill. one that was much higher like 100 more than it should have been they even agreed they made a mistake. after weeks of argueing with management and company nothing was done to solve the issue i was stock with someone elses bill and i guess another party paied my bill. i know accidents happen mostly when people are in a rush but im most upset with the way the company handled the issue and did nothing to solve their mistake in fact the fith restaurnt company was very rude over it to me. i know ill never eat there again nor can i recomend it anyone .

I had read several reviews about this restaurant 8+ months ago and had suggested it to my brother and sister-in-law for their wedding anniversary dinner. They came back raving about the place, so I decided to finally give it a shot. With my best friend in town (who's a foodie), we tried it for dinner on a Saturday and fell in love with the place. The menu was nicely varied in terms of both selection and price, the setting and decor were modern yet subdued in an industrial way, and the service was attentive, not too chatty, and not overbearing. The food was awesome, and we both left feeling full without being overstuffed yet our plates were cleaned and the bill was reasonable. I highly recommend the restaurant for a nice dinner venue for a couple or a group of four.

Went to Ecco on a Friday night with friends and had a really enjoyable time. We had relatively early reservations and were seated promptly. The decor is nice, but not over done, the menu had a lot of interesting and delicious choices, and the recomendations by the server were all fantastic. Of course the wine selections were impressive as well, and the wine menu does a good job of explaining the different choices available. My only concern was that there is a very limited selection of 'main' course meals, for all the variety in small plates, appetizers, and other selections, I would have liked to have had a few more choices of main courses - but then I was the only one at the table to actually get a main course since others had filled up on the small plates and apps, and that might be the way to go in the future. We all shared a delicious dessert as well. The service was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. We'll definitely add this to our list of places to go.

my boyfriend and i went to dinner at ecco the other night . we had to wait nearly 25 mins after we were seated for our waiter to come who was very rude. we had to ask for everything including water refills . we also had to ask them to remove dirty plates as well. the service was terreble when we finally got our food the portions were so small that you could eat the whole thing in two bites . after eating our dinner the waitress just bought our bill to our table and didnt offer us to see a desert menue . also my boyfriend orderd a martni that they never gave him but was on the bill. we asked to see the manager over the marntini that was never served but charged after waiting another 20 mins the manager finally came and was not helpfull he said that we should have told them that we didnt get that drink and that they had already printed the bill up and we had to pay for it i also mentioned about how the rude horrible waitress . and the manager did nothing . so im here writing this review. our dinner for what we had was over 125 which was three marntis including one we never got and two small entreas after dinner we had to stop at a another restaurnt just to get full. this place is a over priced trendy joke with very rude help save your money and go somewhere better

A friend and I had heard many great reviews of Ecco and decided to try it out for ourselves one night for dinner. We elected not to get an entree but instead we got 6 small plates and some drinks to split between the two of us. Everything was very good, but we both agreed that the fried goat cheese was the best! The texture, flavor, and presentation were all amazing. We went on a week night when it wasn't as busy and the waiter was very friendly and let us take our time choosing one plate to sample at a time. I will definitely be going back!

This place ranks in my top 3 of HORRIBLE dining experiences. I have been to hundreds of dining places so that is really bad... First of all, We had a reservation at the place and still had to wait forever for our table. Next, we had a rude waiter. She came over to the table after ages and said, "Do you know what you want?" Never once did she greet us or explain anything on the menu. The food was horrible. I ordered an entree with seafood and chickpeas. I asked if any pork were in the meal and of course she said no. I get the meal and it is bits of bacon all over the chickpeas. The fish was placed on top of the chickpeas and bacon. So I would expect a whole new dish. Well silly me for having such expectations. These people actually gave me the same piece of fish that had clearly soaked up some of the pork juices it was laying on. The seafood was not done at all. If I wanted raw fish I could have gone out for sushi. The portions were extremely small. It was not worth the money at all. This has to be on the list of worst places ever.

I've dined here several times. First, the good. The atmosphere is upscale and elegent, and reminds me of a clean, classic European take on a men's cigar lounge (no velvet chairs and no smoky atmosphere, though). The food is fresh and tastes good, with the exception of the rock hard cold bread served. I enjoy the seafood dishes mainly (mussels, monkfish in saffron sauce, etc.), though one shrimp dish was very overcooked. Many of the menu items are unique to Atlanta, which is both a pro and a con. Most people don't know what chitarra with guanicale is. Why can't they name it fresh made linguine with ham, instead of being pretentious? The service is unpolished and the prices are too high, especially the drink prices. They rate 4 stars instead of 3 for the ambience and the imaginative menu.

We had four for dinner and had reservations at 9pm. We got there early but we weren't seated until 9:30. Good thing the bar is a great people watching spot. We ordered the house wine by the liter which was great! We then ordered everything we wanted, probably 9-10 small plates all together and more wine. We still only spent $160 for all 4 people and walked out feeling that we had a luxurious experience. The server we had was great, friendly and down to earth.

Ecco has a very nice romantic atmosphere.The bartenders are very cool, and the drinks are great. Good wine selection for those who like wine. The food is average. I definately have had much better.
Some of the servers are really rude, and totally act like you are invading their space by being there. Valley guys are friendly and very well organized. I would recommend checking it out.

Although this trendy establishment has LA or Milano style bistro ambiance, the paltry servings and careless service are not so trendy spoilers. I would rather have a bowl of spaghetti and meatballs than pick at over salted cold cuts and bits of cheese. I look forward to the day when small plates are placed in the trash heap of early 21st century history. Next time I am going for a real meal at something like Maggiannos. You should never have to leave a trattoria hungry!

I just can not believe that one person wrote bad review three days in a row below me. I don't know what's wrong with this person but as an Ecco regular, I don't believe any of it! The servers at Ecco are great, everybody got their own style and personalities and I always enjoy them. They have great appetizers including Cheese plate. You can pick good three cheese for 12 dollars!! This place has nice seatings even though it could get noisy at times but what can we do? This is a popular restaurant! Menu is great, try their wines... if you don't know which one to get, ask server and they know what they are talking about. This is a nice fun friendly restaurant with amazing food selections and with kind of hip atmosphere. Music is nice too. I would recommend to everyone to try at least once.

DONT GO! A waste of time and money! Sorry service, sorry food! Felt rushed the entire time, server did not come back to check on food, under cooked, raw fish, and Overcooked meat..... No re-fills on water. Ordered a bottle of wine before the food was ordered, had to ask about the wine when the appatizers were delivered, finally had to ask again after entrees were delivered. Then told they were out of that selection! Need a lot of work!

I've been to ECCO several times and I just love this place. Atmosphere is great, classy, upbeat, and GREAT MUSIC. I went there last week for my friend's birthday and we had a great time. We got there early so we just went straight to the bar. Nice wine list! When I did not see the wine I like, the bartender suggested a similar wine and it was great! It's always busy and reminds of me of the old NY restaurants with European twist. We had the best server, Rondell he paid attention to everything and we did not even have to ask for anything. How he was explaining the dessert menu made us want to eat them all! I will definitely come back for a dinner with friends or even for business. Lastly, no need to say, food is always awesome!!!

After hearing the staff at Sala rave about Ecco a few weeks ago, my husband and I made it a point to plan a romantic outing to Ecco. We hired a babysitter, got dressed to the nines, and headed to Ecco. While we were very impressed with the restaurant's decor (it was old California meets contemporary Italy), both the service and food left something to be desired. As suggested, we sat at the bar and ordered a glass of wine before checking in for our reservation. We were very impressed with the extensive and unique wine list, as well as the knowledgable barstaff. However, the staff did not seem to be as upbeat or personable as we were anticipating, or as it seems at other "sister" restaurants. When we were seated at our table, we couldn't help but feel like we were in a swanky cafeteria. The open kitchen combined with the vast dining room and closely situated tabled made for a very uncomfortable and less than romantic evening. Although our meal was okay, we didn't feel that Ecco stood up to its reputation.
