The bottomless brunch deal is great value but the booze is definitely what you're there for, the food is meh. It also gets quite loud and intense when they bring in a DJ and start the rave music around noon.

I noted that it was a birthday celebration but nothing was done about it. Sardine flatbread and big bones in it and I nearly choked. Dessert was not good. Appetizer and meal was fine. Ambiance was great. Our server was very nice and tried to make amends as best as he could.

I reserved about a week ahead for my birthday dinner with 4 friends on 11/23. I chose a 7:45 res hoping we’d have plenty of time to enjoy drinks, apps and dessert, then attend a show I had booked for 10p. Unfortunately we were running about 10min late while in traffic in our Uber so we called the restaurant and they said it would be no problem. We checked in with the host at 7:55 and were told it would just be a few min. We were standing there for several minutes without being seated, so the host again promised it would only be a few min more and offered us some champagne at the bar while we waited. We were now sitting at the bar for 30min, 45min, an hour, an hour and a half all while watching several people behind us get sat at tables. The bartender assured us our table was almost ready. We weren’t sure if the host had forgotten so we checked in again where they told us that the table we were waiting for was just getting the check. This was about 8:45, when we had until about 9:45 to enjoy our now much delayed dinner. Several more mins past and we asked again, now the hostess said “the next table is yours, they’re just eating dessert I apologize.” So we waited again, alerting them again that we had a 10p show. We were not sat until 9:10pm, where we could no longer order apps or drinks. Luckily the waiter was very understanding and apologized, saying he would rush our food. Right when we were ready to leave, we received our meals at about 9:40p and had to ask for the check at the same time. We then had to scarf down the expensive food we ordered and rush to leave. While the staff was kind to us and tried to fix the whole ordeal, it does not make sense how a 7:45 res got pushed to eating at 9:40, while other diners, reservation or not, were seated before us simply bc they gave us champagne. I was upset that this was the first impression we had birthday at a place I was super excited to try. Hopefully this doesn’t happen to another diner on any special occasion.

Great and interesting design , beautiful tables with cute flowers. Beautiful open bar with gorgeous wall murals .
We went on Saturday at 5.30 pm
Every room and bar is unique.
We ordered a lux tower with a lot of seafood. Seafood was absolutely fresh and I am so picky about oysters, in this restaurant oysters were super fresh, clean and yummy.
I did not like service a bit, waiter was young lady who doesn’t speak good English. She did not ask us about bread, did not explain about menu ( about fish, about appetizers).
Manager and hostess were so so nice and polite.
Manager showed me a restaurant around because all dining ares
has a special design and unique decor.
Restaurant was a bit chilly, when I told management about that, he turn on the heat.

The pastas were bland; chef’s selection of 12 oysters were good except we got 12 of the same kind (a bit of variety would have been nice). Halibut was a bit small, especially given the abundance of beans on the plate. The interiors were super cool and the waitstaff were attentive and kind.

Amazing food and great ambience. Service was terrible. Get a new manager!!! Hostess was not very nice and we were seated 30 minutes late and many others were too. Even after we were seated we only received one thing we ordered and they ended up telling us the kitchen is under staffed and can't serve us anymore food. Ridiculous. I would love to come back but only when they figure out how to make customers happy and get better service. Also they don't have liquor and ran out of ever beer on tap...

Amazing seafood, ambiance and service! Very pleased with all off the happy hour menu items, especially the ceviche. Make sure you tell them when they seat you if you're there for the Happy Hour Special because apparently it has a separate seating area (but they were able to honor for us since we'd made the reservation under the special thankfully).

Got seated an hour and a half after our reservation, were put at a make shift table in a silent room with all the chairs being different heights. Finally we asked to move and when they brought us our entrees one member of the table didnt get theirs so she asked the waiter “I ordered scallops and never got my entree” in which he replied “sorry we dont have scallops tonight” so we had to order her another entree while the rest of the table had their food. Also they didnt have their liquor license? Which is very odd.

Last Friday For a special friend’s birthday dinner we decided to visit Lamia’s Fish Market. And I must say, this establishment did not disappoint. From the moment we entered Lamia’s Fish Market, we were greeted with “welcome to Lamia’s. The staff were very friendly and professional. Big shout out to our staffer Morgan! What a warm and friendly person. The entire concept for the restaurant’s Decor was Genius and the food definitely deserves five stars! I will definitely visit Lamia’s Fish Market again. There is still so many more dishes I have to try 😀

It was my second time trying the restaurant. It has great ambiance so I gave it a second try after a pretty terrible experience the first time around. I figured they were still working out the kinks. I came back perhaps 3 or 4 months later hoping it’d be better.

The service is lacking, I think there needs to be more basic training. Everyone had a smile on their face however it was a very bizarre experience.

We ended up leaving the first time after sitting for 30 or so minutes and managers and servers acknowledging us but not able to assist. We asked what spirits they had and after waiting for help for 10 minutes or so, asked two different people and waited another 10 minutes from each to get an answer. We learned upon the third server that it was beer wine and sake only.

The second time, we decided to just finish our drinks and have our appetizer after realizing it wasn’t an ideal place for us. Odd service and half of the menu wasn’t able to be made although they asked for an exception for one item. Haha!

I hope they turn it around. It’s a darling restaurant.

While the food was great, the service was somewhat lacking. Many beer/sake options were not available and we requested a carafe of hot sake and were given a carafe of cold sake that was very unappealing from a flavor and mouth feel perspective. Food was very good, but service needs some work.

Great potential if they get their timing in order. Had to wait for ordering drinks, waiting for getting the drinks, waiting to get our dishes, and when it arrived the food was not really hot. The place looks great, the host was amicable but there simply wasn’t enough staff. Note to the owner; welcome to the hood, great to have you here, please stay alive and hire more people.

We have tried to support Lamias several times as we live in the neighborhood and wanted to believe in it. Sadly this wasn’t the first really disappointing experience.
The food wasn’t good. It took forever to serve. I understand the challenges of having a restaurant. Not an easy business. That said though, NYC is ruthless. If you can’t get the basics right, it will never survive.

We went there on a Sunday night so it was fairly empty. There were only 3 other tables. A waiter came over to us told us about the fish of the day, took our wine order and never came back. After 15 minutes we asked someone else what happened to our wine. Then another waiter came over with our wine and told us about different fish specials than the first waiter. When we mentioned what we were originally told, he went to double check. The M'aitre D' then came over and said he'd take our order. He was unaware of the fish specials as well. No one seemed to know which fish they did and didn't have. The service was so awful that we decided to leave without drinking our wine and went to another restaurant.

We really enjoyed Lamia's Fish Market. Super friendly staff, amazing food in a cool ambiance. The chairs are a little uncomfortable because they are (too) low for the table but luckily we could switch to the couch. Highly recommend to pick your own fresh fish to go under a bed of salt in the oven!

As I live in the neighborhood, I had great expectations for what I was hoping to be a great seafood dining experience. Regrettably, I was sincerely disappointed by our meal at Lamia. The room was interesting - a cross between a Disney-like under the sea motif and Coney Island. Kitschy and fun, but truth be told, likely a tad overdone. Having read the reviews I was wary of the service. But that was not an issue. Our server was attentive and professional. However, I should have known what was to come when I asked for some bread/rolls and was provided with 3 slices of toasted white bread albeit neatly presented 6 triangular slices. I was even more surprised when my order of scallops (that was supposed to be accompanied by celery root came with an array of cauliflower florets) consisted of only three small to medium-sized scallops for $26 and were salty at that. I was also taken back by the price of the red snapper. I had no issue with the per pound pricing but was shocked to see that the modest fish that was presented prior to cooking weighed in at 1.5 pounds (at least when presented on the bill) at which point I had lost my ability to question the charge.

I wish the restaurant best of success - but it can't happen with poor service - when the waiter didn't know the difference between fishes restaurant offers - or comes to take an order without any paper to write it on. The meals were absolutely amazing but sometimes it is not worth the frustration you get from the poor service. Shout out to the Mexican runner (Alfredo if i remember correctly) who had to fix all mistakes waiter did.

First time visit at Lamias Fish Market. The interior decor is breathtaking! You get a sense that you have taken a dive in an underwater sea cavern. We were greeted warmly and sat immediately on a very busy Saturday night. We took a tour of a beautiful fresh fish market and selected some authentic Mediterranean delicacies the barbounia and the royal Dorado both of which were the highlights of the dining experience. The Dorado was baked in a sea salt and served tableside with a guéridon. The manager Stamatis and even Lamia herself checked with us regularly and made sure that we had everything we needed. Looking forward to the next visit.
