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!

    Thalassa is one of my favorite seafood restaurants in Manhattan. The service and the ambience is always suberb as well as the food. Last night I had the scallops in the filo and the Tuna Tartar. Both delicious.

    Just a fantastic dining experience from start to finish. The entire staff gets highest marks for their professionalism, with Fausto being an absolute pleasure to have take care of us. His attentiveness was flawless. I started with the Ouzo Mojito, which was great.. Appetizers were Greek Spreads, and oysters, both of which were delicious. The grilled whole Dorato was fresh, and outstanding, as were the Lamb Chops. The Chocolate Lava cake and Baklava offered a great ending to a great meal.

    This was my first time dining at Thalassa in a number of years, and I had a truly wonderful experience. The restaurant is spacious and beautiful - with a contemporary but classy feel. I started with the beet salad, which was delicious. I then had the swordfish with gigante beans and asparagus. It was simply amazing. I finished with the chocolate lava cake which was fantastic. The service was superb and the prices quite reasonable for the quality and portion sizes. I look forward to returning.

    I came to Thalassa last night with 8 people. The food and service was 5 star! Everyone totally enjoyed what they ordered from salads, veggie chips, branzino, octopus, lamb chops, lobster pasta (a real wow dish) and the most delicious desserts. The service was also excellent. The atmosphere is beautiful. I have been there before, and will definitely return!

    Go somewhere else. I am disappointed and embarrassed to have brought our out-of-town guests here for dinner. The servers weren’t rude, just not good and okay at best. They really are only there to write down your order. No greeting or friendliness. The cocktails were undrinkable ($18 per drink) They were kind enough to switch out my first cocktail for another, but the second one was even more unpalatable (clearly bottom shelf vodka, awful flavor profile). I took one sip and didn’t touch it after. Appetizers were mediocre, small portions and no flavor. Main course was just bad, served barely lukewarm. The vegetable moussaka ran out, so as vegetarians, we ordered the squash ravioli and spanakopita. The ravioli was overly sweet, served with a creamy sauce. It lacked texture and flavor, had one piece and was completely turned off. Not even the spanakopita was a safe choice. It was dry, room temperature and barely had any filling. I have honestly had better spanakopita from the grocery store. I always take left overs no matter how little is left on my plate. This was the first time in my life where I took one bite from my dish, and let them take away the rest. I wish we left hungry, instead we left with a lost appetite. I wanted to say something to the staff, but after sending back my drink, I didn’t want to cause more of a fuss.

    We were a group of 5 and had the best time at the restaurant. The food was excellent. The wait staff was attentive, but without hovering. The zucchini and eggplant chips were a hit - as was the grilled fish. One of us had the scallops and they were cooked perfectly. I can recommend the restaurant whole heartedly.

    Overall, Thalassa was good. We had high expectations and unfortunately we weren’t that impressed. The service staff were nice, but in general everything was slow. It took a long time to get drinks and food, in particular our mains. We had to ask multiple times. The food was good, but I’m not sure the price tag was warranted.

Great for a party, dinner or a night you don't want to cook but you want good clean food. You can go intricate or easy. The menu is very complete. I love this place!

    It’s way too expensive to be this mediocre. It’s too “upscale” to be this loud. Really disappointed in our recent return. Worst part was the pasta with muscles- our friend nearly got ill, they were so undercooked. They took it off of our bill, but it’s hard to get the taste out of your mouth (literally & figuratively) after this experience. Not good.

    ThalassaResponded on April 11, 2022We apologize for you experience dining with us Friday evening, sometimes it is difficult to regulate the volume of other guests. As for your entree the chef has been made aware and the item was removed from your check. Our manager has reached out to you privately, we hope to accommodate you again with a complimentary bottle of wine.

    A very attractive modern setting for dining, the shades of blue are echoed around the dining room with additions of sparkling stones and stone urns. We ordered the spanakopita, charcuterie and saganaki as shared appetizers. Although it looked overwhelming we happily made our way through it. The lamb chops were fire grilled, tender and delicious with a couple of slices of lemon potatoes. My companions had the scallops, house salad and mushroom risotto which were each tasty and satisfying. I finished the meal with the molten chocolate cake(because I can’t turn it down.) A delicious meal with attentive poised servers. A real treat!

    The food was exceptional. Whipped Ricotta appetizer was the winner in round 1. Everyone enjoyed their meal (6 of us) and the baklava with spun candy was a great way to end the meal. Extensive wine collection, including long list of Greek wines. Wait staff was fairly attentive and did not hover. As evening went on, it did get louder, so acoustics were difficult towards the end of the night.

    Food was great. Beautiful surroundings. Server was knowledgeable & clearly a pro. But the wait for the food - especially dessert - was ridiculous. Took the better part of 40 mins for dessert to show up after we had finished our main course, and I’m convinced it only showed up at that point b/c we complained. It was a prixe fix meal so we had ordered everything up front. No excuse for this kind of svc. on the restaurant’s part, esp. @ $100/person.
