Diner Reviews
  • "The Thalia burger was obscenely thick and despite all the ingredients, surprisingly tasteless and dry."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Went to this excellent restaurant after going to the theater around the corner (August Wilson- "Jersey Boys"). It was less than a five minute walk. My party had sushi, pasta, and the arugula salad with shrimp. The sushi was outstanding and the salads and pasta were delicious. The olive tampanade that accompanies the bread was very nice, too. Our waitress was pleasant and very attentive. All around a thumbs up! I would highly recommend Thalia for a late night dinner or for any meal!"

  • "Eclectic but interesting menu, lots of fish and seafood and other things for anyone not wanting fish. Reasonably priced and huge portions. My friend and I split a salad and I could barely finish my entree. I had a tuna burger which was perfectly cooked medium rare, with cole slaw. My friend had the sweet potato gnocci which was light and so flavorful. Perfectly situated in the upper theatre district."

  • "We have passed this restaurant every trip to NYC! Finally tried it, and it was GREAT! Loved our special drinks, and the Restaurant Week menu offered great variety from kale salad, oriental rolls, tilapia or burgers, to name a few. Loved the atmosphere!"

  • "Service good, food fine, but noisy. Not bad for theatre."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "Waitstaff was great, general manager was rude and assumed we were tourists. Made reservation to get seated late when restaurant was empty. Food was ok, not worth the price. My arugula salad was better than my meal"
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "I found Thalia by chance when searching for restaurants around the Times Square area to stop and get appetizers and drinks before the show. The portions were very large and delicious. The wait staff was very prompt, attentive and friendly. Would definitely go back for a full course dinner - Everything looks so good."

  • "we have always liked this restaurant for a very good pre-theater meal. They know how to get you out on time without hurrying. this time we came back after theater for dessert. Very nice to be welcomed back!!"

  • "We went during restaurant week. The menu was limited but interesting enough. Except for desert, the food was edible but not tasty. I ordered the Cornish hen and my husband ordered salmon. We wouldn't return. The service was ok."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "We were seated immediately and approached by our server quickly. Drinks came promptly. All questions were answered. The salads ordered were excellent. Four different entrees were ordered and each were very good. The noise level was still at an acceptable level. We were finished in good time to arrive at the theatre on time."

  • "While in NYC, we went to a Sat evening performance of Motown. We booked Thalia's for dinner post theatre, with dinner reservations at 10:45P, because it was nearby & reviews were positive. One of the best meals during our trip, service was attentive & the interior was unique & theatre oriented. When in NYC again, would definitely dine here again."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Our server didn't seem to want to be working this very night and there was a disconnect between him and his busser/assistant. We were seated right way (two of us) along with another table of four. The wait staff at each table was different. The four top received bread and water as well as drinks prior to us being greeted. Drink orders were taken and one of the two was delivered wrong. A simple Bacardi and Diet Coke with lime. Again, our waiter was not with it. When ordering dinner it was almost painful for our waiter to take the order. Another larger group was seated next to us and a different waitress listed off a handful of specials, none of which were on the menu. Shame on us for not asking. The food was delicious. Our service, bad."

  • "We found this restaurant last year on our annual trip to the theater and were blown away. We decided to come back again to see if Thalia could back it up! They nailed it. The food is creative with each dish executed with ranges of flavors and textures that delight the eyes and the taste buds. The service is top notch, knowledgeable and attentive. With as many restaurants that there are to try, I am surprised and pleased to say that I think Thalia will be in our rotation for years to come. Also, the restaurant is very convenient to the Theater District which is important to us. We like to eat before the show and Thalia is within easy walking distance of the theaters, making the transit from restaurant to theater a very predictable walk."

  • "Great quick lunch spot. Service was incredible. Right in the middle of lunch time and we didn't feel rushed. Food presentation was beautiful."

  • "We researched restaurants in the theater district, and after mulling over a few, decided on Thalia. We were not disappointed. The waiter, Alex, was very pleasant. The ambiance was wonderful. There is a two-course special lunch that was quite reasonable. The first course iceberg lettuce salad with walnut dressing was superb! My husband's burger was very good. My frittata was fresh, but admittedly, a tad bland. Our companions' salads were also fresh and well-prepared. All in all, we'd definitely put Thalia on our go-back-to list."

  • "Always enjoy eating at Thalia. The food is always good and the menu has something for everyone. Very good happy hour and attentive and knowledgeable wait staff. Definitely will return."

  • "I have had brunch and dinner here many times over many years. It is always good, sometimes better than good but always good. The creamy polenta appetizer has been on the menu forever and I hope it never leaves. My salmon was well cooked, but it was swimming in a near soup-like mixture of too many things. My friend's prawns were perfect. The waitress asked if we were pre-theater, and service was excellent. The place was packed and very noisy, not surprising for pre-theater, but less than relaxing. Nevertheless, we enjoyed our meal (house made sorbet was fruity and just a little icy) and I will go happily return next time I am in that area."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Excellent choice for pre-theater. Super pleasant staff. Food choices diverse and well presented. Fresh, delicious and healthy options. Will definitely return!"

  • "My experience at Thalia was wonderful. The people who work there are friendly, the service was excellent, and they were very accommodating. The presentation of the food was great and the food was delicious. I would highly recommend tell you anyone who wants to experience a wonderful meal and the ambianve is gorgeous.My friend and I went there for both brunch and dinner. That is how much we enjoyed this restaurant."

  • "Thalia has been a regular "go-to" for us for about 12 years. The weekend brunch, in particular, is reasonable, tasty and has a variety of offerings to suit every taste. This past Sunday's visit was not my favorite. I would go earlier if possible, As you approach matinee time it gets crowded and hectic."

  • "Went to NYC over the weekend with my 9 yr old son. Discovered Thalia on line and was not dissappointed! The menu, not overwhelming in legnth, has something for everyone from Sushi to burgers to pasta! My son loved his pasta! I had oysters and sweet potato gnochhi and both were wonderful! Can't wait to try it again!!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "The four of us had a great time, relaxed no rushing though Thalia was a hopping restaurant, food was good, our wine was excellent. Our server did a great job. We would recommend and probably go again"

  • "Small plates, good food for the theater bound. They were mindful of our curtain time."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "I ordered crab cake sandwich without the spicy oil but tho the crab cakes were delicious it was too spicy for my taste. I did not send it back but believe they used the spicy oil. I did not want french fries that came with the meal and requested tomatoes instead. They gave me a generous amount of tomatoes that were perfectly ripe and delicious."

  • "We were there for pre-theater and it was a perfect fit. They have a two course lunch which was great. Food was indeed very good. Noisy restaurant. Bunny"

  • "We discovered Thalia when we had theater tickets in the neighborhood; this is the second time we had lunch here, and we look forward to returning. Both my husband and I had salads ( arugula ) which were fresh and delicious with a light lemon dressing. We also splurged on desserts: my husband , who loves cheesecake, said this was one of the best he's eaten. I had a fabulous tarte tatin. The bread served tasted home made and the coffee was good. The staff was friendly and helpful, from the waitress to the busboys and the hostess. 3 cheers for Thalia!"

  • "Reserved lunch for a nice meal before a Sat show. We arrived 30 minute prior to our planned time and were quickly seated. While a lunch menu was not available, the reasonably priced brunch menu offered a nice variety of breakfast and lunch choices. Our food arrived hot, cooked to our requests and appealing in presentation. Portion size was more than adequate. We would return again and recommend to others."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We were in town for my daughter's 21st birthday. Food and ambiance was great. Hostess' were very pleasant. Waitress, not so much. Not very attentive, couldn't answer questions and I overheard her bad-mouthing another patron to another waitress. Other than that, it was a good experience and the guy assigned to help her was very attentive and nice. Again, the food was very good and I would definitely recommend the place to others."

  • "located just around the corner from where Book of Mormon is playing, staff was extremely helpful in making sure we got out on time. Food presentation is lovely, decor is fresh and lively, if a bit dark, and the overall vibe is just what you'd want before a show."

  • "I was at Thalia two times in one week and it's just the best!! I have recommended it several times and will definitely return when I am in the area. I cannot think of how it can be improved upon. The menu is great; very imaginative and certainly, generous portions. I understand the chef has been there for 9 years. I hope he/she never leaves. We were celebrating a 10th birthday and the wait staff couldn't have been nicer to Bianca!! Even the bus boy did an exceptional job and we told the manager who came over to our table and also told him as well. Gina was our waitperson and she was just delightful."
