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.

Very pretty and imaginative decor. Each room is decorated beautifully. Oysters were delicious. The main course fish entree was perfectly cooked. Only wine and beer.
Service uneven tho well meaning with drinks arriving after the first 2 appetizers. Also not so much fun to be seated near a private children’s birthday party with LET IT GO and BABY SHARK super loud sing alongs while we ate....at 730pm

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.

Highly recommend. Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed every dish and found the seafood incredibly fresh and well-prepared. So nice of them to offer sparkling wine at the end of the meal! Beautiful decor and fun seating!

The only downside was the service was a tad slow, but it is a new restaurant and they seemed slightly understaffed.

Went to Lamia’s for a girls group dinner and it was great - the design and overall interior is beautiful, comfortable seating, and great ambiance. We ordered a ton of drinks and appetizers from the happy hour menu which was really extensive. The only small issue is they don’t seem to serve liquor so all the drinks are sake based, etc.

We almost walked out before we ordered as it was about 25mins from being seated to our waitress then coming over to take our orders. Despite there before plenty other staff around not doing much, seemingly ONLY our waitress could wait on us.

We ordered the royal platter and was very disappointed. The king crab was dry and tasteless and the prawns were dry and rubbery. Either the chef doesn’t know how to cook them or they were several days old...what a waste of good seafood. The ceviche was not ceviche. It was more like old cooked seafood drowned in white wine vinegar and did not appetising at all. The lobster, oysters and clams on the other hand were fantastic.

For our last night in NYC, this was a disappointing experience. They spent 2yrs redecorating the place and it feels like 2 mins on the menu and their operations.

We did appreciate that the managers took the time to listen to our concerns and offered us some extra oysters and a reduction in our bill. We truly hope things improve as it really would have been an amazing experience if everything had been faultless.

We came for dinner on Labor Day, place was dead empty but I'm chalking that up to the holiday as it's definitely worth a visit. Outstanding decor and 'vibe', interesting cocktails (sake/wine, no liquor license but still very clever drinks), good food. On the flip side, service was pretty lacking and unattentive, and while the dinner was pretty good, it wasn't as 'original' as one would assume given the originality of the space, cocktails, etc. Worth a visit, but temper expectations just a bit...

Alejandro was our server and he was wonderful and attentive and made me feel special on my birthday! The food was outstanding, so delicious and well seasoned and tasty. I ordered the oven roasted chicken cooked with rosemary and thyme and it was divine. My sister ordered the seared halibut cooked with capers and olives and that was extraordinary. My boyfriend ord er red the salmon and that cooked to perfection and melted in our mouths. This restaurant is amazing! 5 stars. We sat in the mermaid room and the seating was so comfortable and the ambiance really took us away. Loved this experience! Can't wait to visit again

Lamia's has amazing food not to mention the beautiful aesthetics. As I waited for my party to join me all I kept hearing from passer by's is how nice the place looked. The decor is breathtaking but that's not only thing Lamia's has going for them. The Black Duck Salt Oysters were the best I ever had. Our waiter was pleasant, attentive and really helpful with suggestions on what to try. The crab cakes could use some work but the Peppercorn Rib Eye was excellent. I really enjoyed the drinks Beachfront Views and Basic AF. Really looking forward to going back during the day to enjoy the food and view of the seafood bar.
