Mediterranean
Thalassa (which means “the sea” in Greek) has been a neighborhood fixture since 2002. Once a warehouse for Greek olives and cheeses, the space is now one of the most authentic Greek eateries in New York City, serving only the freshest dishes, accompanied by an extensive worldly hard-to-get wine list, dramatic nautical décor, and exceptional service.

Our seafood is imported directly from Greece, Spain, Portugal and Hawaii, in addition to special arrangements with local independent fishermen who meet the highest standards. Our specialties range from the classic Greek dishes, all the way to exotic seafood such as Langoustines from New Zealand and King Shrimp from South Africa.

We invite you to come and experience our incredible cuisine, outstanding service and our beautiful surroundings. We look forward to creating a dining experience you will always remember.

Kali Orexi!

It’s a solid place. Greek dishes are delicious. But it seems like it’s a bit of a suburban restaurant and not a TriBeCa place. No X factor and the blue neon lights, though very Greek, aren’t great for ambiance.

The waitress looked mad and saw our glasses were out of water but she kept going past our table. The service was slow but obviously the restaurant wasn’t understaffed. Disappointed by the taste of the food, not flavourful enough. The guy who took our orders told my friend they’re out of lobster pasta but minutes later we saw with our eyes a lobster pasta was served to the table next to ours. Hmmm…I’m not sure how vindictive I wanted to be here but generally speaking, the experience was trashed. Although the restaurant was trying to give us free red wines and desserts being apologetic, I couldn’t just let my night of travelling to nyc be ruined like this. The restaurant could do better, and I hope they can take this review seriously and improve the training on the chefs and service staff.

Thalassa has a very nice vibe and good food. Unfortunately - our bartender service was truly terrible as it took well over an hour to get our 1st cocktail. I am hoping they were just light on staff that night (maybe someone called out?) ... but I cannot honestly rate them higher than 3 stars with that service.

That said - they gave us a few free bottles of wine at the end so it was appreciated how they made up for it!

This is an elegant, contemporary white table cloths setting with grand sail cloths in the ceiling reminiscent of Greek island windmills. I found the contemporary music a bit loud but otherwise a terrific, large dining room with tables generously spaced for a private large or small dinner. The menu is interesting, fish-focused. We had as appetizer the best spanikopita I've ever had-- generous, flavorful, non-greasy. The fresh grilled de-boned branzino fish was perfect (I have not recalled the Greek name). The scallops over a feta-mushroom risotto was delicious, delicate and beautifully presented. We had a nice , moist walnut cake with ice cream for desserts. Very interesting selection of around 20 Greek wines, most reasonably priced at $40-$50 per bottle;we tasted several reds....quite good. My only regret was that they have no Greek gins at the bar (I know of 12 available) and anticipate a martini with Greek gin on my return visit.
Consider this for an elegant, contemporary romantic meal at very reasonable price for Tribeca, or for a business gathering.

Took some friends from college there. We couldn’t have had a better dinner. The fish was incredible. The restaurant may be one of the best look restaurants in city. The service was solid. Order the fresh fish by the pound or get lamb chops. They were both utterly delicious.

So glad Thalassa has reopened!
The menu is as good as always with many new and delicious additions.
The fish tacos are the best ! Crispy taco shells with delicate fish inside. The new shrimp kataifi appetizer came under a glass dome that was lifted to expose a puff of smoke and crispy kataifi wrapped shrimp. Excellent taste and presentation.
The vegetarian mousaka was also a new menu item that we enjoyed with lentils substituted for meat.
The menu staples like Greek salad, grilled octopus and crispy zucchini chips were amazing.
Simply grilled fish was also excellent (as always.)
The service was attentive and the cocktails delicious.

Save room for dessert and you won’t be disappointed.

My husband & I live in battery park & always said thalasso is our favorite Greek restaurant. However, they were opened 2 months & we were disappointed. The food was excellent, but was misinformed ordering their appt. octopus. It was huge on the seafood display but when we got it, it was the smallest we ever had. Also, after their long break of being closed, their wooden tables & chairs looked very worn. There were no table clothes & after our 2 courses our table was dirty & never wiped up before our entree arrived. I hope they get their act together. We would love to come back. We’ll see. Good luck!

Booked this restaurant for my wife’s birthday dinner in New Your city based on the food and the positive reviews. We were very excited to eat here. We live in St Louis and flew out to NY for her birthday. The food was good but the service wasn’t adequate. It did not improve after complaining to the waiter and telling him directly that we expected better. They comped 2 of our drinks later in the evening after the poor service continued, though the drinks came so late we didn’t want them. I had to walk to the bar and ask for a steak knife for my steak because the waiter was MIA. Other tables did not appear to be having the same experience as other came, ate, and left. You would think that they would have a manager see us after complaining to multiple staff members. When you pay this much for dinner you expect a level of service. Will not return.

This was the best restaurant I’ve been to in Lower Manhattan by far!!! I booked a table for 11 for my birthday. I was super impressed by the mask wearing, hand sanitation and overall cleanliness of the restaurant from the bathroom to the table everything was cleaned. As a clinical researcher for infectious diseases I saw the cooks double their gloves, not one single server have their mask below their nose and the host told us about the new air ventilation system and politely asked us for our vaccine information.

The food was amazing!!!!! I wish i took pictures of it, i ordered the pan seared scallops with mushroom risotto and as soon as i got back home i started looking up recipes so i can make it at home with my own touch. My cousins ordered the lamb chops and the ny strip steak while my friends ordered the lobster pasta, mussels and other entrées that im forgetting everything was 10/10. The lobster was slightly overdone so 9/10 and not worth $55 maybe a $45 dish but not over. For the appetizers my party and I shared the eggplant and zucchini chips, the lemon potatoes and fried calamari. We all decided that we’re going to meet up again and try to make the first two dishes they were that good!!! My best friend went home and now her and her mother are going to try to make the eggplant chips in the air fryer lol it was that good!!! I wish i had room in my belly for dessert because i knew it would be amazing.

At the end of the night, the hurricane Henri was STORMING outside and Thalassa staff was gracious enough to give my party and I complimentary cookies, sing happy birthday to me and let us charge our iphones behind the counter while we all waited 40+ minutes for rides.

The location is excellent and is a not so hidden gem in Soho. I want to keep coming back here and I am happy to say that this is my new fancy dinner place in Lower Manhattan.

When i tell you I am so impressed!!! This is my first review ever!! That’s how good!

Very instagrammable btw!!!
