Seafood
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!

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!

Some of the best Greek food in NYC! We had the zucchini chips, lamb chops, and octopus. All were delicious.

The service & ambiance were also incredible. Thanks to the host, Peter, and the bartender, Randy, for being especially attentive & knowledgeable about the menu.

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.

The service was absolutely exceptional - could not have been better. They lowered the volume of the music for us, were accommodating to an allergy, and the service was efficient. The food was excellent. We tried several of the appetizers including the calamari, the trio, and the santorini.

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!!!

From the minute we walked in we were greeted warmly. The bartender made great recommendations and offered tastes before we decided.
The restaurant was quiet so we had a private area. We shared appetizers, the octopus was delicious and the crabmeat stuffed zucchini flowers were amazing.
Red snapper & scallops main courses were prepared with interesting twists and tasted great.
Celebrated my birthday and couldn't have felt more special.
A gift on the way out was a perfect way to finish the evening. Will definitely be back.
