    Dined on 12/16/2013
    Chose this restaurant because we love fresh Greek fish and vegetables. Walked out vowing to never return. The service was abrupt and aggressive. The food was mediocre. And the wine list limited to only very expensive bottles (the $100 of French was sold out--so I had to reach to $159). This is not a place for a quick meal. If you need to be in Tribeca and must have Greek, you can subject yourself. But, with so many great Greek restaurants in NY, jump on the subway and head uptown--where the food and wine are both better and more affordable--and avoid this Trojan Horse.

    Loved the setting and the design of the place. Food was very good and it was blissfully loud enough so that you could hear your dining companions. Missed some of the old traditional Greek standbys though--tarama, fried manouri, etc.

    Dined on 10/13/2013
    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%.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    I've been here 4 or 5 times over the years and always had great experiences. This time, I was disappointed, especially since we brought friends here and vouched for the place. The food is still very good, but the staff now makes the place feel like it's on the way out. Our waiter was rude, contradicted our opinions, and was flirting with our dates a bit too much. The other disappointment was that they no longer offer langoustines by the pound. This was easily their best attribute but sadly it's gone. I won't be going back.

    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.

    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!
