Etcetera Etcetera Ratings and Reviews
Food and ambiance were okay. Service needs some work, as there was not a dedicated server for our table. This lead to many unnecessary questions asked by the waitstaff and questions we had as guests were answered differently depending on who you spoke to, i.e. if the salmon was wild caught.
Food was awesome! I ordered the chicken breast and my boyfriend had the snapper. Dessert was great. We ordered the apple tart. Thank you so much for the personal gesture on our dessert plate for our anniversary. We will definitely be back. Everything was great!
We arrived on time, but there was no table for us in the restaurant, despite having a reservation for 2+ months. We were seated in an overflow room upstairs furnished with temporary tables, and staffed with what appeared to be temporary waiters who knew nothing about the wine list or the food. The waiters started removing the tables as we were eating since everyone else in the room had left. We asked to be re-seated in the main dining room, which they did. Service and enjoyment improved. The manager "heard" my complaint about how poorly our reservation had been handled, and has invited me to come back, which I hope to do soon. Mistakes happen, and the place seems eager to make it up to me. Stay tuned for updates.
PS. The ratings for this review apply to the upstairs room, not the main dining room.
My friend and I found ourselves in NYC without a reservation or a good idea as to where to go for dinner to celebrate Thanksgiving. One of the bartenders we were talking to suggested using the Open Table app. So, I loved the name etc etc for an Italian restaurant and we were able to make a reservation at 8:15, only 30 minutes later. We only had to wait a few minutes for our table, everything we ordered was delicious and arrived in good time, and the servers were terrific.
We were there for thanksgiving and one of our party was late arriving from a flight into JFK. By the time we arrived we had missed our reservation. However, after a short wait the manager was able to accommodate us in an already crowded restaurant. All attendees complimented on their meals the leg of lamb was great and tasty. The ribeyes were excellent. The servers were attentive but not constantly interrupting our conversations. The Brussels sprouts side dish was outstanding , well cooked and tender.
We had the cornish game hen and the salmon. Both were excellent. The waiter also selected a superb wine for me. It was easy to hear each other (and I am hard of hearing). They made sure that we were served and got our bill in time to make our show at the Majestic (which is very close).
For a pre-theater dining experience, this restaurant can't be beat. Also good enough to be a destination dinner . Service was excellent and attentive. Requests were filled immediately.
Five huge scallops were perfectly cooked, chicken milanese was a huge portion and the green lasagna was delicious. Cookie bitesd were delivered with the bill. Will go back many times.
We chose Etcetera for a family gathering before the theater based on its location and the ability to reserve far in advance. We wound up pleasantly impressed with the menu and the quality of the food here. The pasta dishes were excellent, and the salads fresh. Complimentary cookies came with our coffee. I arrived early from out of town by train and was seated immediately while waiting for my other guests. The sound level did build up as the place filled, and personally I could do without the techno background music, but we could still have a conversation. All in all, it was a better than good choice for a meal in this busy district.
The waitstaff was very attentive.
The GF spinach RAVIOLI WAS DELICIOUS, but I really missed having some GF bread to go with my meal. Also, I would have loved to order a side dish, but again, no GF options. I left hungry.
Advertising gluten free is great, but a FULL GF dinner would be nice.
We three visited here for pre-theatre dinner. Arriving at 5 pm for a 7:30 show we had a choice of tables and make the mistake of choosing one in the back which ended up being next to a busy area where the utensils and napkins were stored. I would get a table closer to the front next time.
The food and drinks were all quite good. The green lasagna was excellent. The gnocchi with truffles was extremely well made. The spaghetti with lump crab meat was fine -- excellent pasta but a bit lacking in the crab.
The desserts were all good...nothing remarkable but tasty. The service was excellent but the ambiance was a bit lower than it otherwise would be just because the layout is quite crowded, so 4 stars there.
All in all it was good food and service at a good price. I would go back.
Service was good though it seemed as though there were more than server who helped out and I don't believe we ever were introduced to our server by name. Our server did, though, have a good knowledge of the menu and the ingredients in each dish which was appreciative as some diners have allergies and/or specific meal requests.
It did take quite a while for us to receive the bill and we had to ask for it after waiting about 20 minutes past the time that we finished our desserts.
Nice atmosphere, great service and delicious food. Had a reservation for after matinee show and showed up early and they still graciously seated us. Hostess was one of the friendliest, attentive hostess we've ever met. Waiter was friendly and earnest, making the occasion with friends a lovely one.
They make fantastic martinis and the staff is so friendly and accommodating. We shared 2 1/2 orders which was more than enough for 2 people. Their risotto is killer good and we pared that with a gnocchi that was cooked with maple and raisins - sounds strange but nit was delightful.
This was my second time coming to Etcetera Etcetera in a week, both times for birthday celebrations. The service is great! I also had the same waiter twice, David, and he is fabulous! Very funny and attentive. Food was excellent. Be aware that is gets very busy early evening as it is a popular pre-theatre restaurant. I enjoyed it both time but prefered going later in the evening as it was a bit more subdued.
We eat at Et Cetera often for pre-theater. The serving staff is professional in noting your timing and serving accordingly without really rushing you. The food is terrific. Sometimes we get the price-fix dinner and sometimes we order a la carte. Both ways are excellent. I love that pasta can be ordered as full plate or half plate. And if you wish to have something from the price-fix menu as an a la carte dish, you may. I ordered the soup this way. I preferred it to the soup on the a la carte menu. It was delicious. Dessert (or coffee) comes with cookies which are a nice treat. But my favorite is the affogato.
Because of the chef's specials and seasonal menu changes, you never really can get bored eating here.
A new restaurant for me! Special occasion reuniting with family members from out of town. Could not have been better - authentic Italian food was delicious and service fantastic. I encourage those who eat here to order any of the deserts. Only critique, it was quite loud and bustling, which dissipated after 930pm. The owner was very gracious and came to visit our table. We’ll be back soon!
We always go here for pre & post theatre and it's consistently 5 Star! This time it was our destination for an 8PM reservation. It couldn't have been better...as usual: great food, great service, great evening! And the staff could not have been more accommodating. We love Etcetera Etcetera.
