I recently joined friends at Ecco for lunch, while meeting for an upcoming trip to Africa. The service provided was attentive and personable, but the real treat was the sumptuous food. We all enjoyed the fare; be it a locally-sourced salad, fresh fish, or perfectly prepared pasta dish. This was my first visit to this particular establishment, but it certainly... More

Overall, we had a good experience. However, both of our entrees were over-sauced, and both sauces were too sweet for our liking. For the prices, I would have expected better food preparation.

We had Victor for our server at Ecco. He was one of the greatest waiters we have had in quite awhile. The dinner was also wonderful. I had Sole fish and my husband had Rack of Lamb. Both meals were excellent. We shared a dessert and it was also excellent. We would highly recommend going to this restaurant when you... More

A really nice restaurant. We try to dine there whenever we are in Northern California. On our last trip, my wife had the Petrale Sole & I had the Veal Milanese. We both enjoyed our meals. The wine list is good and reasonably priced. ECCO competes with Il Fornaio which is across the street. Do yourself a favor and spend... More

Looking for dinner near SFO. Found Ecco online and decided to give it a try. Cute little restaurant in downtown Burlington, just a few minutes from SFO. Great salmon and crab special for the wife and my duck was very good (thigh meat was excellent. Breast meat a little dry but sauce was fantastic). Service was excellent and the waiter... More

Great restaurant - great value - great service - return time after time.....Sharon was a wonderful server. The "off wines" list is always a treasured surprise. The Chef/Owner was engaging with all the clients. Thanks.

Good food, good service, and decent pricing. We went with a large group and preordered but the food came out perfect. Others had the duck - heard that was very good. I would return here again. Make reservations - it is always busy. Dress is casual to dressy and they seem to have a lot of locals in the place... More

What a fabulous place. The best food in Burlingame and probably one of the two best restaurants in the mid-peninsula area. Duck--moist and delicious. Swordfish--out of this world. The veal Milanese is to die for. Fabulous desert selection, excellent wine list, full bar, and extremely attentive service. A place where you can hear yourself talk, too. The best.

Went here on a layover in SFO and was pleasantly surprised. The house cabernet was very pleasant. My two companions had the ribeye special. Both liked it, but the steak-eater of the two said he's definitely had better. My beet salad was good. I had the app-size mushroom ravioli as my entree. Best ever! That dish should be an entree!...

Ecco was the only place I could find close to SF airport that had available seating for Xmas Eve. So it was a bit of a last resort ... but ended up being a inspired choice - a perfect evening with really delicious, creative food. The wine list has a good mix of French & CA (of course!) wines. Good,... More
