Nestled in midtown Atlanta on 7th street, just east of Georgia Tech, this European-inspired restaurant is a terrific spot for an elegant evening. I had the pleasure of coming here with my girlfriend for our three year anniversary, and the experience was excellent. The service was impeccable; our waiter was terrifically attentive without being intruding, extremely professional, and recommended great wine pairings with our meal. The atmosphere was very elegant, perfect for a classy evening meal, whether as a date or simply an up-scale evening with coworkers or clients.
To me, service and atmosphere are actually more important than the food, as I go to a restaurant for an experience, and not just the food. Needless to say, however, Ecco topped off the evening with a wonderful menu. I love the European style offering of great cheese and meat pairings they offer. We got the recommended goat cheese appetizer, which was excellent, along with the three for 14 cheese/meat pairing. For entrees, my girlfriend got the Pappardelle and I got the Sausage entree, both very delicious.
All in all, an excellent, elegant evening. You can tell they know what they are doing.
