    There were five of us dining at Thalia. Somehow, they managed to screw up at least one thing per person. Ordered items were forgotten, misunderstood. We had to ask for cutlery, condiments, and other items. If it weren't for the fact that I've dined at Thalia multiple times in the past and I know its generally better, I wouldn't go back.

    We picked Thalia as we were going to Circle in the Square. It's right across the street. While the food was fair, the staff was lovely and I would go back when I'm going to theater in the vicinity.

    The food was delicious. I had the short ribs which were melt in your mouth tender. Also, the fior de latte was very generous and fresh , fresh , fresh. Blue point oysters at $1.00 each were exceptional. Very reasonable tab for two with drinks. I'll be back next time I'm in NYC.

    I agree with all the reviewers who said they get you out in time for your performance without feeing that they are rushing you. It's an attractive, comfortable space. Somewhat unexpected was the food tasted great and the menu displayed some real creativity.

    We have been to this restaurant several times and usually enjoy the ambiance as well as the food. We shared a rainbow roll which was delicious. My husband's pork chop was also delicious. When it was my turn to order I was told that the restaurant was out of the grilled Mayan prawns. This was on a Sunday at 5:00. I don't understand this as the restaurant opens for dinner at 4:30. I had the Tuna which was good but not as good as the prawns which I have had before. In conclusion, I was really looking forward to this dinner and was disappointed that I could not have the dinner that I wanted.

    Have dined all over the world,a VIP diner on Open Table & this is only the 2nd time that I have written a review.I have no choice. While ambiance and service always make a difference, at the end of the day, the quality of the food is outcome determinative.The meal that my family was served at Thalia was,categorically,the worst that I ever have encountered. Several (not one, but several) prominent menu items were not available(perhaps that was a blessing).What we ultimately were served ranged from wilted lettuce that should have been thrown out days earlier to a ravioli sauce that was right out of a tin can and food that simply was not edible. We left & went down the street to a sports bar where flatbread pizza from a pub put Thalia to shame

    Whether for brunch, lunch or dinner, Thalia is a convenient, reasonable choice for dining before or after a Broadway show. I love it for brunch. Dinner was good too. While there was not a kids menu, they did a good job with accommodating young children. We had very good pasta dishes, the signature French fries, a sushi roll and soup among the selections.

    though highly priced, the oyster special at a dollar a pop was the real steal. the sushi was uber fresh and the burger was succulent, moist and well cooked. we ate at the bar which was very comfy but there is a lounge area that looked terrific, as well as varied table configurations. i was very impressed. also, if you time it right you can get street parking free after 7 close by.

    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.

    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.

    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.
