Wish all restaurants were like thisWe 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.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThalassa in TribecaIn 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!! .6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful, relaxed eveningMy 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!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAn Amazing Experience As AlwaysThe 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!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat 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.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA little bit of Greece in TribecaLovely ambiance, delightful service, inventive and delicious food.

Would definitely go back!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Service Goes BadWe found the overly-attentive service to be overly annoying. The instant the last bite was eaten, the plate was removed, whether the other people at the table were still eating or not.This happened repeatedly and made for a very unrelaxed dining experience.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMHad dinner with a friend andHad dinner with a friend and we were both very happy with our meals. One of us had the tasting menu with the fish; the other ordered off the menu and had one of the grilled fish choices. Food very good, service very effective, yet unobtrusive. We ordered off the Greek wine list - had a nice merlot for $44/ bottle. And love the free after dinner drink!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you're a fan of seafood,If you're a fan of seafood, you simply cannot go wrong at Thalassa. It's known as "Greek seafood," but don't let that scare you off if it's something you're less familiar with. There are Greek spins on many of the dishes, but you can also simply get the traditional fish you are likely familiar with grilled to perfection. It's a cool ambiance and feel tucked into a corner of Tribeca.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMSophisticated and RefinedAlways beautiful - always refined and sophisticated!
There's something for everyone on the menu - lots of sharing possibilities, to taste.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe entire experience wasThe entire experience was satisfying from the delicious fish dishes perfectly prepared to the exquisite wine and the very helpful but non intrusive service.
