Our dining experience was wonderful. We can’t wait to go back. Starting with the complimentary olives, bread and hummus and amuse bouche, the fresh whole fish selection and preparation was superb. The octopus was excellent and the asparagus was perfectly done. There is also a very nice prix fixe option at a very good price. The setting is very attractive. The service was excellent. We were constantly happily surprised by touches such as a small glass of port and homemade chocolates after dinner. There was even a cookie to take home as we left the restaurant. This place is a jewel!

Food and service were great. Ambience really enjoyable also. Prices on the higher side, but felt it was worthwhile.

Ordered two drinks at the bar before dinner, and bartender surprised us with a small cheese platter to enjoy while we were waiting for our guests.

Gabriel our captain was top notch . He and his wait staff did not miss a beat! One person in our party of 4 has an onion allergy and the Chef came out to our table personally and tended to her needs! Thanks to all!

I booked a party of six and we were well taken care of by the staff. They did a great job. Food was excellent, served in an elegant manner, and the service was truly exceptional. I will definitely be coming back here on a regular basis for business dinner, lunch and a night out with friends and family.

I was thoroughly impressed with their level of hospitality and how connected they were with ensuring we had an amazing time celebrating my wife’s birthday. The highlight of the night was when the Host Steven brought out the extra face lighting which enhanced the clarity of all our pictures by 1000%. Then there was the food, truly mouth watering Fargri. Definitely recommend.

Wonderful restaurant! We went there for a special occasion birthday, and they really treated us well. The food and the service were wonderful. There were plenty of menu options, and lots of great by-the-glass wine choices. The ambience is beautiful and really peaceful. The entire staff was incredibly friendly. AND it's in my favorite neighborhood in Manhattan. Highly recommend this lovely place!

A wonderful first class dining experience. The maitre'd was extremely professional and courteous.
As I am Greek any greek restaurant has to meet high standards and Thalassa more than met them.
We had a number of small plates which not only were delicious but also quite large in portion size.
The decor and ambiance make for a great date establishment.
Service was first rate with our server anticipating our needs but not overbearing

We really enjoyed the food and the service staff was wonderful. We purchase a deal on Pulse, which did not specify that we would be ordering from a limited menu. We were slightly thrown off when we only had 3 choices each for our appetizer, meals and dessert.

Had an amazing birthday dinner here. Food and wine, and service were amazing, we felt like at home. Met the owner, George, and he is the kindest, sweetest man! He gifted us with his own brand olive oil which is the most delicious olive oil I have ever tasted! Will definitely be back!

Food's great, but the service was spotty. Took a LONG time for our waiter to come to our table. The shawarma was supposed to come with tzatziki, but ours showed up without it.

I have always loved this place. The food is consistently good, the service attentive and I love the look of it. The 4 of us ordered from the restaurant week menu: 2 octopus, 2 lavraki crudo, 2 lamb chops, 1 salmon, 1 sea bass. All of them delicious. With the lovely desserts, it was the perfect amount of food!

We will certainly be back!

We were there for Restaurant Week. The appetizer and main choices were excellent and we really enjoyed them. Also the amuse of gazpacho was delicious. However the dessert choices were down to 2 and they were definitely subpar. The service was off a bit. A long wait to order drinks but our food came really fast. Too fast. No one even asked if we wanted coffee.
I’ll go back because the food was very good.

Unfortunately, the reviews that lead me to Thalassa did not meet their expectations. While the staff were friendly and accommodating, the food just missed the mark. Four items were missing off the main menu and it wasn't disclosed until we ordered. It was literally the first three fish items, and one of the apps. The baked seafood appetizer was pretty good, then it all went sideways from there. Our main dishes, were ancillary fish dishes and were under-seasoned, and overcooked. They tried to rally with offering comp dessert and drinks, but it was too late by that time. The manager on duty was attentive and seemed to care about my concerns. I truly hope they take this opportunity to review their business practices.

Food was fresh, service was great. Portions were perfect. Thoroughly enjoyable just could have used a touch more seasoning/herbs in seafood, bread as expected in Greek cuisine, but tasty overall and very well presented.

Me and my husband celebrated our anniversary and it was one of the most amazing experiences i had in New york! The staff went out of their way to make our evening memorable and romantic. And the food was exceptional - octopus was really the best i have ever had, and i necer miss a chance to try it if i see it on the menu. The ambiance is upscale, quiet and classy. Defintely will be back.

Dear Angela: Thank you for dining here at Thalassa Restaurant. We appreciate and value our clients and take their satisfaction very seriously. It is unfortunate that you were not able to enjoy your meal and that you had found your fish full of bones. Our Chef and the Thalassa team work hard to have as many bones removed from the fish as possible. We will be working hard to keep up with our clients needs and look forward to your next visit so we can make it one of satisfaction and joy!
