    The kale, endive, radicchio salad was fantastic as well as the veal ravioli. Skirt steak was also excellent and cooked to perfection( medium rare). We have been there about 5 times in the past two years. The food has been consistently excellent. Never disappointed.

    Dining in this area can be a hit-or-miss experience, but this place was definitely a hit. Don't be put off by the vague name or the somewhat nondescript exterior. The excellent Italian cuisine is the star here, served by a pleasant and friendly staff. The risotto with shrimp and roasted tomatoes in arugula-pistachio pesto was superb! Highly recommended if you're looking for something less run-of-the-mill for before or after the theater.

    We chose EtcEtc for our first night pre-theatre meal in NY prior to heading out on birthday celebration cruise. My mother has some mobility issues and the restaurant staff were very responsive to my inquiries about accessibility by email before the visit. We were very impressed with the selection of fresh pasta dishes and especially appreciated the option of 1/2 orders. The service was excellent - responsive but not intrusive - and the pace of the courses was just right. We would definitely recommend this restaurant for pre-theatre dining or any other special occasion. Sincerely, Barb, Beth and Clare from Canada

    We have eaten here several times and have always been pleased. This time we found it extremely noisy. My husband ordered the eggplant parm from the starter menu to arrive with his half ravioli main course. We were told it would take 30 minutes. It never came. The waiter said he must have misunderstood. This was disappointing and my husband left still hungry. We were with friends that we had brought here for their first time so we did not want to make an issue of it.

    I have eaten at Etcetera Etcetera numerous times and always found the food good and the atmosphere convivial. On this particular Saturday night, however, the noise level was so obnoxiously loud that any enjoyment of the meal was ruined -- my companion and I finally gave up shouting at one another across the table and were forced, instead, to listen to those shouting at each other at the tables around us. This will make me think twice about going back to this restaurant (I suspect they don't need my business) and will certainly never go again in the two hours before theater, especially on a weekend. Why do restaurants think this is okay and do nothing to try to control it or moderate it? There are variable acoustic solutions.

I will warn that it's very noisy and service was a little slow but overall, people were nice and food was amazing!--it's worth noting the entrees are very unique takes on Italian cuisine

    I have eaten at Etcetera Etcetera several times and always feel that I want to go back. It has a great menu and I always enjoy going there. It is on the top of my list for when I go to the theater district. I had the tuna in red wine sauce and it was great, especially the wine sauce. Loved the vegetables and the sauvignon blanc as well.

    Nice surprise in a very residential street just outside of what most would call the "theater district". Sleek and modern decor with a very nice menu of nuvo italiano dishes that were all very good. Solid service but unobtrusive. Overall, a very enjoyable dinner at a very reasonable price that was an easy walk after our theater.

    Went here to eat before our Broadway show. Even though they asked us if we were going to a show, and we replied in the affirmative, the food was quite slow in coming out and we were nervous about whether we would make it on time. We did, but we had to ask about our food and when it would arrive. They have a prix fixe menu which is a reasonable price, but the food was just ok. The tilapia needed to be seasoned better. Other people in our party ordered off the menu a la carte and I tried a bit of everything. It was all fine, but with all the great food in NYC, it was underwhelming.

    Just when brunch has become the 'hot' meal of the week to go out for, the lines of folks wanting good brunch food make finding a good restaurant with availability quite a challenge. To the rescue comes Etcetera Etcetera, a hidden jewel on 64th St. between 8th and 9th. The food is very good, very reasonably priced and the service amazingly warm and professional. This is both a neighborhood gem and definitely a go-to restaurant for brunch or lunch before the theater on the weekend.
