terrible experience! we had reservations & we still waited ONE HOUR! after 40 minutes, the owner took us to the bar and provided us with two chairs for a party of four until our tables ready.. no problem. shortly afterwards the “manager” came and pushed us & told us to sit or else we will get kicked out!? 1. you’re making us wait 2. the owner placed us there 3. there are only TWO chairs available for FOUR people 4. you’re threatening to kick us out?!

after an hour wait, we sat at our table and asked if we could add two more chairs to our table & his response was don’t talk to me like a dog. we are never stepping foot into theia again & I will make sure my friends and family don’t go either! the hype will die out with the current management & they won’t have customer in 6 months! every time i have been to theia at least one party has gotten into an argument with the owner due to his management skills!

I really liked my Theia Toast, which came with a perfectly poached egg. My friend has the burger, which he enjoyed very much - a mixed beef and lamb patty.

Theia is such a fun place to eat if you’re looking for an energetic night out, but the food and drinks are really subpar. I went two weekends in a row and it’s easy to be dazzled by the sparklers and DJs but if you really pay attention to the food it’s quite poor. Here’s what I had:

Food:
Hummus - good
Baba ghanoush - pretty unpleasant. Kind of made with a charcoal flavor
Htipti -very good
Lamb burger - totally over cooked and unflavorful
Octopus - very bland
Truffle croquettes - bland. Very much needed salt and also more truffle flavor
Taramasalata - good
Beet salad - I didn’t eat this myself but my sister said it was fine

Drinks:
Dr Jekyl - totally bland and small pour
Gin and tonic - gorgeous presentation but quite bitter
Pinot Grigio - fine but small pour
Love letters - fine/good
Beer - both times I went they only had one option of beer, which was bottled Stella.

Great restaurant to celebrate any occasion. We were celebrating the birthday of one of the three amigas. Owner and staff were warm and welcoming. Music was exciting and made you want to shake it up. Ambience was great for people watching. We really enjoyed the delicious drinks and food. Amazing hummus, prawns and Theia burger. We especially loved the tasty wine based drink, Petrie Laura. Looking forward to visiting this restaurant for other friend’s get together! Thanks Open Table.

Not like their instagram at all, food was below average, service average, drinks okay. Part of the kitchen is outside of the kitchen because the place is TINY. Hummus bland, grilled octopus and potatoes bland. Disappointed all around, waste of an outfit truly.

Theia is a lively, almost club-like environment. It’s a vibe! Some menu highlights included the truffle potato croquettes (my fave), spanakopita, and pita with hummus. I wanted to try to clams diane but they were unfortunately sold out. My friend and I decided to ball out and get the $95 steak which was served closer to medium well than the medium rare we ordered. For a place that boasts such a great menu, they should be able to execute a steak! The cocktails were great and they even brought us free shots accompanied with dancing servers carrying sparklers. Like I said, a VIBE!

During dinner, there were belly dancers that danced around the restaurant. It was so cool and unexpected! They enhanced the atmosphere and provided great entertainment. I do wish I had known ahead of time so I could’ve brought cash to tip the dancers.

For dessert we have the coffee baklava and lavender creme brûlée which were both delicious.

This is the perfect place for girls night out or a fun date night! Definitely not a place for intimate conversation or low music volumes.

It is EXTREMELY loud. Literally every 15 minutes, they crank the volume of the music to 100 and the staff walk around with sparklers I assume trying to encourage people to order bottle service. This is absolutely the opposite experience one would expect from a Greek restaurant. It’s clear they’re trying to be some sort of hybrid restaurant-club, but the sun was still out and that was definitely not the vibe of the patrons nor does it match the aesthetic of the restaurant. It was literally impossible to hear my friends or have a conversation at the table. We could not wait to pay and leave.

First of all, I want to thank the host and all staff at the restaurant for being so sweet, friendly and accommodating to all of our needs . We came the Theia for Father’s Day and they were slammed! They didn’t let that phase them at all. Their customer service was impeccable, food and entertainment was on point and they definitely gave each and every table a VIP greeting . I would def recommend trying this restaurant.

This place has so much potential to become the next best thing in LA . But the food and service were horrible. Would love for them to keep the classic tastes of the Mediterranean instead of giving everything a twist. The meat we got tasted old and was not chewable. I would like to give this place a try when they up their game and their service

Drinks are pretty good but the food leaves A LOT to be desired. We ordered 4 appetizers, a salad and a main course- they only one with any flavor was the clams main course. Everything else was very bland and bordered on flavorless. The sparkler show is fun the first time they do it but when it happens every 15 minutes it gets old fast. Music and DJ were really good but WAY too loud for a restaurant- more suited for a nightclub experience. Finally, the restaurant has a 90 minute table limit which is totally fine as a rule. However, when the server doesn’t tell you your time limit is approaching and brings another round of drinks only for a hostess to approach you 5 minutes later to tell you you’re over your time limit and other people are waiting for the table while trying to rush you through a $14 gin and tonic, it leaves a bad taste in your mouth. Take a note from the much better restaurant down the street (Toca Madera) on the proper way to make the 90-minute table turn work.
