    Excellent dining experience - while waiting for our table the maitre'd served us glasses of wine which we found out later were on the house. Also, a plate of cookie for dessert came free with our dessert. Extremely friendly waitstaff, able to make great recommendations, very accomodating.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 6/12/2008
    The best way I can say who would like this type of food is people who like "experimental Italian." My mom and I went here on coupon from Restaurants.com, but we were disappointed. The food was just okay going down, but then it left a horrible aftertaste. We couldn't wait to go somewhere else for dessert. Plus, we had two different waiters through the course of our service; that was something we didn't like, especially without notice. Just seems like the kind of place that would appeal to rich yuppies who just want to eat their hoity-toity food over their pseudo-intellectual conversations.

    SVRatVIP
    Dined on 6/8/2008
    etcetera etcetera is a solid Italian restaurant with offerings between traditional Italian family eatery and very upscale (read "expensive") posh restaurant. Both the menu and wine lists are fairly limited. Despite that the food is very good, and the wine list has many excellent wines on it. The chef is young and, in my opinion, will get only better. The service is friendly. Our waiter tried being helpful, but knowing how each dish is prepared would be very desirable for the completeness of the experience. Overall, I will recommend this restaurant without any hesitation to anyone but the most discriminating customers.

    We love this restaurant! My friends and I dined there after a Broadway show during our visit to NYC from DC. We all said how wonderfully attentive the staff was, and how terrific the food was also. We really felt that we could relax and enjoy being ourselves, it wasn't pretentious or anything. I feel good knowing I have a good pick to go to whenever I go to NYC now! Two of us had the red beet salad, which was awesome, we loved it! Beets were perfect. Our entrees were wonderful; I had the swordfish with a wonderful puttanesca-style sauce, one of my friends had a pasta dish with crabmeat that was to die for. Oh and the cocktails were fab-u-lous! A man whom we assume was the owner came and topped off our drinks! A great find, we'll be back!

    This is a great find in a neighborhood that is often lacking in good food. The decor is colorful and upbeat. The service is lovely and welcoming and the food is really great. Interesting, varied menu with something for everyone. Service is quick when you need it to be fast - if you're making a show. But there isn't a feeling of being rushed. I've been there twice and both times were excellent. Highly recommend.

    Four of us dined on 5/11/08 after the theatre. We enjoyed the contemporary atmosphere, the excellent food, & the service. The restaurant was only 1/3rd full, so it wasn’t noisy. Waiters were attentive and kept our wine glasses filled. The portions of the food fit well with the prices we paid. We ordered: grilled baby octopus salad with fennel, bell peppers, green asparagus and citrus; Pappardelle w/rabbit ragout; a selection of sliced Italian cured meats (a meal in itself), the excellent grilled skirt steak, Parma prosciutto over melon w/grilled dates wrapped in pancetta; Veal, raisin and amaretto filled ravioli; eggplant parmesan, a roasted chicken dish. Desserts were small but excellent. Highly recommended! Will go back again!

However, the noise level kept a buzz going on in the background sometimes making it hard to hear. Attractive modern decor but the service people rush around too much taking away from a more relaxed feeling. We were in and out in plenty of time to make theater...maybe that's why they rush

Fixed Prix menu availalbe and reasonably priced for being in the theatre district in NY. Enjoyed the service very much. The staff was attentive and knowledgable. They called me the day before to confirm the reservation. Upstairs dining room and downstairs. Downstairs is more vibrant, but upstairs was quiet and peaceful.

    Delicious food, meticulous service, and portions that are just the right size. The menu is carefully edited, showing that the restaurant is wise enough not to be all things to all people. I will definitely keep it high on my list of pre-theatre places. Last point. It's less expensive than almost any comparative place I've visited on Restaurant Row.
