The fried goat cheese and charcuterie plate are must orders; great wine list as well
Ecco is by far the best Fifth Group eatery. Awesome ambiance and eats.
Amazing Italian fare. Goat cheese fritters and homemade pastas are a must try.
This place is fantastic!!! – I'm finding it difficult to find new words to describe this delightful dining experience. I guess I should just say that everything you read is correct. The food is fantastic, the wait staff and management are attentive and very knowlegeable and the ambience is comfortable but still gives you a feeling of a special evening out. We're new to Atlanta and if this is any indication of the type of cooking they're doing in this city than we've got a lot to look forward to. Ecco has set the bar very very high. Well done!!!
Nearly Perfect – Had the absolute pleasure of dinning at Ecco and left feel that the whole experience was as close to perfection as I have had at any restaurant in a very long time. The atmosphere was great, music fit the experience, food was very good, wines were unique (the little wine card on wood was a very nice touch) and service was friendly, but still professional. The ONLY thing i would suggest is a few more entree choices. Well done 5th group.
WOW – What a fabulous find and a wonderfull addition to the Atlanta intown dining scene. We visited Ecco recently with another couple and had a marvelous experience. The food was simple in nature but perfectly prepared. We sampled a variety of small plates and appetizes including the meat and cheese board, asparagus, risotto, flank steak pannini, and some outrageous chocolate dessert. The service was knowledgable and enthusiastic and the vibe at the place (both inside the dining room and outside on the patio) was perfect for the area. Finally the martini's were excellent and not at all watered down.
This is one well run restaurant which is all the more amazing considering it has only been opened for a month. We enjoyed the dining and overall scene every bit as much at we have places like Rathbuns.
Ambiance, food the best in Midtown! – In Midtown and looking for an ultra-chic restaurant to dine at? Try Ecco -you won't regret it! Upon entering, diners are immediately taken in by the restaurant's stunning atmosphere and design: rich materials such as dark walnut, leather and Italian Carrera marble are utilized to bring out old-world style with a new world twist. Continue through the restaurant and diners are instantly drawn to the oversized, open bar area and the open kitchen, which features a tile wrapped wood burning oven.
Thirsty? Not a problem at Ecco. The restaurant serves innovative cocktails such as the Mandarin Ice T Knee with Hangar One Mandarin Blossom vodka, Maison Prunier Orange Liqueur and Lillet alongside boutique old and new-world wines, palate-pleasing cognacs, fortified wines and other delectable specialty drinks only found at Ecco.
Hungry? Now we're talking. Ecco offers seasonal, European-inspired food such as wood-fired seafood and steaks, fresh, simple pastas and salads, and items to share like roasted shellfish bowls, wood-fired pizza, taste and share plates and build-your-own charcuterie and cheese boards. Of course, save room for delectable homemade desserts such as burnt honey and gorgonzola ice milk and coffee panna cotta with hazelnut praline and chilled zabaglione.
trendy but cozy, great cutomer service, FOOD!! – This is a very cozy and sexy neighborhood restaurant. I bet the chef has theme in cured meat. They serve many varieties of sliced meat, and I was especially impressed by the Carbonara they offered. Home made pasta with great tasting bacon and finished with egg. This is the best Carbonara Ive ever tasted in South. I can hardly wait for next tasting-visit to learn other eye opener dishes. Great wine, cocktail and cognac selections. They could add some summer time hard liqueurs in the menu in the future. Welcome to our neighborhood!!
I found heaven at ECCO – I was impressed the minute I walked in - this place is DYNAMITE! Its very sexy, but comfortable (how did they do that?) it just feels good. The wine list is awesome - who ever wrote the descriptions should take a bow! We ordered 2 "Ecco exclusives" wines by the carafe, they were great. Started out with meats and cheese board (i was licking my fingers...) and a neat wood fired pizza to share. We also shared this incredible egg and fingerling potatoe app (sounds odd but its DELICIOUS) and short rib stuffed pequieno peppers (my spelling may be off...) Then the main courses - Can I just say I found my own little slice of heaven in midtown - ECCO
done right – cool new place. free valet parking was a blessing, overall the place felt casual (we wore jeans) yet about half the crowd was dressed better, big bar area with friendly bartender that helped us with the 27 wines by the glass (bit overwhelming), European decor (upscale italian meets french bistro meets industrial warehouse), the food was great pretty much across the board and the our party had a great time. highly reccommended. nice to see a new restaurant do it right.
