Dining question for dinner tonight in Atlanta

A group of 5 have reservations tonight for 4th and Swift. Now one in the party would like to change the restaurant to Ecco and another one would like to change to Alfredo's.
I know there are big differences in each restaurant. Which would you recommend?

Thanks for your help!

  1. I guess it depends on what kind of atmosphere they are going for and type of food.
    I prefer Ecco....I've heard mixed reviews about 4th and Swift...some like it, others don't.
    Alfredo's doesn't really interest me, meaning that kind of cooking.

        4th and Swift or Ecco are big steps above Alfredo's. Alfredo's is heldover unchanged from the 70's serving the Southern Italian cuisine that was all most of us knew about Italy at that point.

          We ended up going to 4th and Swift and I am so glad we did. Service and food was out of this world good.
          We started out with some small plates of veal meatballs, fried oysters on risotto, artisian meat and cheese plates and the beets. There was not a bad item here. Each one was so wonderful in its own way.
          Then we ordered our large plates and could it get any better? Well it did!
          Our server was great as were all of the wait staff!
