Stopped by for dinner on a Saturday night and we were ready for a good time. The ambiance of the entire restaurant feels very hip and cool. I love the big open kitchen and for such a large space I was expecting it to be...More

Great, great food! The fried goat cheese w/ honey and black pepper was so good, that we ordered them for appetizer and desert. The atmosphere was great, wait staff extremely attentive, and the food tops it off.

My husband and I really enjoyed dessert and wine. The bartender was superb and had a great suggestion to please my husband and I both. We had the strudel for dessert and it was great. Ambiance is a bit dark but romantic.

We made a return visit to Ecco this trip to Atlanta as we loved it the first time. We have a tradition of Sunday steak nights and remembered how good the steak was our first visit. This visit was even better! Our waiter, Chris, assisted...More

Are you allowed to wear thin, surfer type wet suits? No metal rivets and zipper up back is plastic and covered with wet suit material. We are going in January and my son gets cold easily in water.

I don't believe they have a dress code, so I think you're fine. Unusual, but fine. No water around there though, so you might want to go for clothes instead.
