Food was not as great as expected. Apps were good but lunch entrees left a lot to be desired.

My husband and I dined at Thea Friday night. First off, we love the fact that it's BYOB, who doesn't? The decor is lovely, upscale and calming. We had the crispy Brussels sprouts with feta as an appetizer - like delicious little flavor bombs. We each had a salad which were delicious and different, mine had roasted butternut or some kind of squash in it which was lovely. For dinner I had the meatloaf which was just outstanding. It was very tasty, light and moist and came on a bed of savory bread pudding. The bread pudding had toasty crisp edges and was really delicious. Asparagus served as my side was plentiful and perfectly prepared. My husband had the pasta bolognese which he said was good but not great. The sauce was lacking some dimension we couldn't quite define.
Service was attentive. It was just a tad louder in the main dining room than I might like. Overall a really nice experience. We will definitely put this on the rotation.

Great ambiance, great service, fresh ingredients and fresh menu ideas, well executed. This place remains a gem. (The Arancini appetizer is a definite winner!) Kudos for accommodating vegan diners, as well.

We frequent Thea’s a lot and never seem to be disappointed. Food is always good and healthy. Only thing I would like to see if a healthy dessert like fruit.

Thea offers excellent entrees that are creative and delicious. The wait staff is professional and well trained, especially if you spill half a glass of wine all over your table. They teamed up and replaces the table cloth and setting very quickly and politely. It is a mind game, but I prefer to order a $30 entree and get bread and a house salad with it. We will be back and really enjoy the BYOB aspect.

Great place in a somewhat off-the-beaten-path location. The brie appetizer was surprisingly good. Entrees were excellent - I had the veal milanese which was perfect. The nice thing is that they don't cram so many tables in there so that you feel crowded and the service is perfect.

We had a great dinner ant Thea and will be back! As locals, we always have a go-to and this is becoming one of them. Crabcake entree and pork chop special were delicious. BYOB allows you to bring your wine preference. We had a great server and fast delivery of our meals. Would highly recommend.

The most amazing food and service around. Everyone in our party ordered something different and it was all fabulous. You must try the brussel sprouts appetizer! The building is beautiful and clean and all the workers are professional and polite. Cannot wait to go back.

This was our first visit to Thea's. The restaurant is comfortable and well appointed. The service was superb and our wait person was engaging and informative. The food was all very good with a reasonable selection of entrees. The desserts were exceptional. Price-wise, the restaurant is moderately expensive but worth the trip.

Salmon was superbly grilled. It was served over blue crab stuffed ravioli which was good but slightly bland. Service was outstanding. Our waitress was Alley who was personable, efficient, helpful and bubbly. Wonderful evening!

We were disappointed because they put two tables for two together for our foursome and the two tables were at least 2” different in height.
Over all great service and food. a bit to noisy.

Dinner was marvelous! Both of us enjoyed the food from appetizers to dessert! A place to have great food that is not the usual typical thing. The flavors of each course blend well together. The staff are polite, knowledgeable about the food, open your wine (byob) water glasses filled.
We have returned a few times, it’s just as wonderful.
If you are on the fence, you really need to treat yourself to a dinner here!
We will be back soon .
