Reliable Greek fish downtown!
Thalassa has been around awhile and still is one of the best Greek fish palaces. Service is excellent; the appies and fish entrees are terrific. Reliable, consistent and just plain good!

Everything was amazing here. The food was absolutely delicious, very generous. The service was perfect and the restaurant is beautiful. I've been here many times and will be back again.

upscale experience all the way
This is the third time we have been to Thalassa and it is a lovely restaurant. The ambience is elegant and modern. You can actually have a conversation at your table without raising your voice. The food and service were both superb. They have a prix fix menu on Mon- Friday which is a great deal, along with their regular menu.

A little bit of Greece in Tribeca
Lovely ambiance, delightful service, inventive and delicious food. Came with a Travelzoo voucher and were treated very generously with freebies galore. Will definitely return!

Great seafood with exotic flair.
Thalassa has great fresh seafood (obtained locally or flown from Greece, Portugal, and Hawaii) with Greek inspired flavors. Their wine list is extensive and the staff is attentive. There is a separate but visible area for larger groups, which allows for an energetic atmosphere while keeping a nice balance between couples and larger groups. The locale is a great Tribeca space with high ceilings and brick accents that add to the comfortable, uncrowded, and yet modern decor. I definitely recommend Thalassa, especially if you love seafood and you are looking for something with an exotic twist.

An Amazing Experience As Always
The place is reminiscent of a ship's deck with cleverly disguised columns dressed like ship's sails!!
The staff is fantastic, attentive and not too intrusive. The food courses from the Giant char-grilled Shrimp & Langoustines, to the simple "Real Greek" Horiatiki Salad and up to the elegantly presented char-broiled whole Lithrini & Thalassina main courses were outrageously phenomenal! The Greek white wine was citrusy and hinting of grapefruit tones paired well with the seafood. Desserts and cordials were offered to us for our special occasion on the house! THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!

Thalassa in Tribeca
In this restaurant I feel like I am on an ocean going ship. The fish is fresh, fresh, fresh. One person had the steak (which I felt was an error in a Greek restaurant and he wasn't pleased with it). The swordfish was my personal favorite. Picturesque appetizers. I recommend the zucchini and eggplant chips in a surprising arrangement. We wanted to share and still had lots to eat. Bring your appetite. The service was warm, attentive and but not intrusive. All in all a very gracious dining experience. We also staged a memorable wedding there two weeks ago and couldn't wait to get back to eat some more wonderful food in a gracious atmosphere. I just loved it!! .

Wonderful, relaxed evening
My friends and I had a wonderful dinner at Thalassa! The restaurant is beautiful -- tall ceilings, exposed brick, gorgeous botanicals, a clean, white bar which is a pleasure to sit at and enjoy a cocktail before dinner. Perfect place to enjoy a summery, mediterranean vibe -- love the tall ceilings, white sail details, nautical railings around the restaurant and down the staircase. Gorgeous room downstairs would be ideal for a private function. Food was delicious -- a lot of fish on the menu, nice olive tapenade, enjoyed the greek salad. For the dessert, the panna cotta was perfect!

Wish all restaurants were like this
We were kept waiting a very long time after being given our menus. But once we complained, another waiter helped us. He also compted a second bottle of wine and after dinner drinks. A class act! The food was great. Overall a wonderful experience.

Extraordinary food and service!
This was our second dining at Thalassa, and we will be back! This time we invited a couple of friends for dinner who were visiting from Spain, and they were very impressed. We enjoyed a fabulous dinner with extraordinary food and outstanding service from the waiting staff, particularly from the maitre (Mr. Paris). We ordered grilled octopus for appetizer and it was very tender and perfectly seasoned. Got offered other appetizers by the house!
For main course my friends had the especial flounder dish of that evening and I enjoyed a delicious dish with gigantic grilled prawns, simply outstanding. For dessert we ordered couple of options and we were surprised with couple of additional desserts and a glass of porto by the house, THANKS!

This place isn't cheap, but prices are fair, considering where everything is coming from. The seafood is definitely VERY fresh, and prepared well. The servers were very attentive, and carefully answered all our questions about the menu. We went for an early dinner around 5:45 pm on a Friday night, so the place was still relatively empty, so even though there was a wedding party going on downstairs, it was relatively quiet.
Wonderful atmosphere, great food - bring great company and have a great time!

Fantastic fresh fish choices
Fantastic fresh fish choices that you see displayed. Food was a 10 out of 10.. Julio our server was super knowlegable and helped make it a great evening.

Great food, great service..........
I have eaten here several times. Food is great. Service is often approaching impeccable. They will, however, charge you for it.

Love this place!!
Standard go-to place for me for fabulous Greek food and seafood. Sat in the bar area this time, not by choice, but did have a reservation. Service was very slow but they did make up for it by comping a bottle of wine...
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dining at Thalassa was truly awesome. The dishes we ordered were absolutely delicious and beautifully presented.
The service was also excellent...very courteous and attentive. Will definitely go back again.

Thalassa Restaurant Week
Thalassa's Restaurant Week menu is one of the most consistently generous, well executed meals - leagues above many Restaurant Week restaurants. It is a quiet venue with well spaced tables. Service is polished and very attentive. The food is outstanding... from the amuse bouche to the post-dessert dessert! I highly recommend this restaurant...and look forward to returning for an 8th visit!
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
we went for a post wedding lunch. The service and food were excellent.

Awesome Greek in a lovely setting
The maitre d' was warm and welcoming. I instantly felt this was a place I would return to. Relaxed lounge area and the setting with sail like cloths on the ceiling making it special. The food - the octopus was delish, soft and flavourful, the scallops in filo like pastry were a first for me ( not scallops but the package they were in) and I hope not a last. The wine very complementary, some delish dumplings and everyone ordered the eggplant chips ( except our table) - so will try that next time. It is not cheap and they are overly keen to whisk away your plates but sadly that trend is prevalent everywhere.

Charming nautical atmosphere, fabulous private function rooms, extraordinarily attentive service, creative menu

great tribeca hidden location
nice large bar - and nice dining room - moderately quiet so you can have good conversations - great background music (guitar). very good service and food - plus little extras like sweet wine w dessert. a wonderful evening all around
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
the restaurant was very quiet and food was delicious.
well decorated. especially i like the display of raw fish and other seafood in ice.
but it is pricey.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Worth the Price
I rarely rate restaurants "fit for foodies", but everything my wife and I were served was beautifully conceived, perfectly executed, and absolutely delicious. Even the coffee was outstanding.
The service was just the way it's supposed to be at a fine restaurant: attentive, accommodating and very pleasantly friendly without slopping over into hi-I'll-be-your-server informality. We were treated like valued regulars even though we were actually first-time Restaurant Week hoi polloi.
BTW, the prix fixe menu is good through Labor Day and its dinner is an excellent value. The regular menu prices are on the steep side, but you'll get your money's worth.

Wonderful Greek Food in Tribeca
I've been wanting to dine at Thalassa for quite some time and I finally got there. The food was excellent. We dined off the restaurant week menu and the value was terrific.The regular menu had a good variety of seafood and Greek inspired items. Our seafood was fresh and perfectly prepared. The wine list was extensive with a good selection of Greek wines that you don't see on many restaurant lists. Our wait staff was attentive but not intrusive. We went on a Wednesday evening, the restaurant was fairly busy but we were not rushed and spent over three hours at our table. There was a beautiful party space downstairs, which is decorated like the main dining room. I'm definitely returning and looking forward to dining off the regular menu.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful time. Food was verygood but not great after going to Astoria Greeks. Service was friendly and spot on. Visualy the restaurant is verynpleasing.

Restaurant Buddies Loved It
This restaurant was fantastic!!! The food was exquisitely presented and the portions were just right. My restaurant buddies and I loved our waiter, he was a delight and brought us additional tastes of crab cakes (which I will have to get the next time I'm there) and a lovely dessert wine. Bravo!
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food slow service
My first time here and having lived in Greece I know what good is and the food was good, I especially liked all the little extras we got like olives and dips, desserts and digestif, the service was very poor for the first hour, it was a Friday night, but we didn't get a waiter for more than half an hour, my waiter didn't know ehat Greek food was nor what gluten free meant, however apart from that, lovely place and great food
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of my best seafood restaurant in town. Fish is fresh and excellent, tables are well separated to stay intimate, romantic scene and cosy decoration. Wine recommendations are also very good and service is very attentive and kind. I always go back when I can and am always satisfied.

Our guests from Washington DC enjoyed the fabulous seafood & lamb chops.
Appetizers were great and tasty. Price was truly great deal among fancy restaurants
in the area. My friends from Texas will come to try this restaurant after recommendations
from DC friends.

Favorite Seafood in the City!
Such a beautiful restaurant. Service was outstanding!
Brought guests to impress, and they were definitely impressed.
Must try the Octopus!

Food delicious although a bit noisy
I took two clients out for dinner. There was a party going on downstairs which made it impossible to talk without yelling. The food was very good though. Usually the restaurant is empty during the week but the night we went they had a function downstairs. The noise traveled upstairs. That took away from our dining experience.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Get Him/Her to The Greek!
Outstanding experience all around. Beautiful room, attentive and friendly service (without being invasive or too formal) and simply delicious food from starters to dessert. The tartare trio was a wonderful app shared by three of us. My lamb shank was tender, flavorful, fall off the bone good. And our host kept bringing us complimentary tastes and sips - an amuse bouche, Greek dessert wine, and chocolates and sweetcake afterwards. Throw in a talented jazz guitarist softly playing classic rock ballads while you dine and you're in Hellenic nirvana.

Excellent Greek Food, Great Service
We've been to Thalassa twice and will go again. This is authentic and delicious Greek food. The fresh fish is especially good. The waiter was great. When I asked for a recommendation on white wine, he steered us to a Greek white that was the least expensive bottle on the menu and it was perfect! From Santorini.
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Perfect Sunday !
Although it was their first Sunday opened for dinner, they sure did have their act together! First off, the decor was amazing - unique, open-spaces (yet cozy/romantic) and extremely clean-and-crisp. The ambience was perfect. I LOVED the live, Greek music.
The food was great from the amazing octopus app, to the white-fish entrees we had. I thoroughly enjoyed the cheese plate, olives and hummus they provide complimentary, as well as the wine - a nice touch, and great immediate 'starter' for someone who was quite hungry walking in.
I really don't have anything negative to say about my experience. I will be going back, 100%.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Elegant and delicious
An elegant, sultry environment to enjoy wonderful upscale greek food. Stand outs include the grilled octopus, seafood with orzo, dover sole and all desserts. Wine list is extensive, staff wonderful, knowledgeable and inviting.

I don't understand why this restaurant wasn't completely full; perhaps Tuesday nights are slow. But every single bite of food we put in our mouths was excellent.

Refined Greek Dining
Exceptional dining with a Greek flair. Some of the portions are small plates great for tasting for two,
The service, well...equally attentive and accommodating, This was at 7PM on a Saturday, when we left Thalassa there were no empty seats.
