good all aroundThe prix fixe lunch was limited in choice but excellent and a good value. The location is convenient to the theater district. The wait staff was responsive and friendly and our waiter was actually funny.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBeen here a few times at thisBeen here a few times at this point, great place, plan on going back5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMTriple threat...We've been to Etcetera many times since it opened and it never disappoints. The food is always good and the service just as wonderful. What's especially pleasing about this gem is the reasonable prices. Three of us shared a few plates so we could experience more. The pappardelle with lamb ragu was especially delicious, the burrata was fresh and creamy and the eggplant parm nicely seasoned. The mixed drinks and wine were affordable. It's the perfect stop for a pre-theater meal or post-theater get-together.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMeeting up1st time at Etcetera. Living outside NYC and meeting a friend from SF for dinner. Picked this place from Open Table reviews and was very happy with choice. The food was good and the service was fine. As we did not have to rush to leave for a Show we spent our time enjoying the dinner and chatting up. I would go back again. It was a good find.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMPre-theater sophisticated ItalianIt's always hard to find a good restaurant in the theater district so we reserved a table at the last minute at ETCETERA ETCETERA with no greater expectation than getting dinner before our play. What a nice surprise then to find a sophisticated Italian menu, very well thought out and expertly prepared. In addition, they honored our OpenTable request for a quiet table and prompt service so we could make our 7pm curtain.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed this restaurantWe enjoyed this restaurant very much... since we prefer quieter atmospheres we would recommend that you make a resi for 7:45 or later , due to the theater crowd usually leaves at that time and it is pleasantly quieter.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMA nice pre theatre optionLooking at reviews for a pretheater dinner at Signature, I came across this place. We passed up the couple outside tables, even though it was nice weather, they just didn't look that appealing. Inside though was nice and we two were seated at a table, which we prefer to the scrunchy banquette seating. Husband got the $35 pre theatre dinner of striped bass, arrugula salad, and lemon eclair. I had delicious beet salad and
Caramalle pasta. All were wonderful. A basket of fabulous bread with tapenade was also included. Service by waiter and a host of effiicient bussers was very efficient and unobtrusive.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways delicious with wonderfulAlways delicious with wonderful service. Attentive to needs of theater goers.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAfter more than 1/2 dozenAfter more than 1/2 dozen times this is one of our favorites in the neighborhood. Have never had a bad meal and the bartenders are very good. Service is outgoing and friendly and professional. what more could you want? We always introduce friends when we go and so far all have agreed that it is a great dinner place. Compliments to the chef - wonderful menu perfectly prepared.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMA real gem in NYC !!!Always the best!! Our favorite restaurant.

Wonderful experience3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently goodTable service & kitchen always top notch. Told the server we had theater tickets & we were served promptly. My only negative would be that the bartender was rude to my sister-in- law wwho intended to sit & have a drink while she waited for me to arrive. He told her she couldn't sit at the bar because the seats reserved. No one sat there the entire time (10 min.) that she waited for me.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMI really like this place,I really like this place, especially pre-theater.
