Food was ok. Ordered a dozen little neck clams. One was bad. Let the server know and she brought a single clam. Can't eat a clam after biting into a bad clam. Another option should have been offered. Maybe don't charge for clams.
We enjoyed brunch at Thalia. Had trouble choosing one item as we found menu appealing. One drink was included and if you want just one more it was $20 as they offer unlimited for $20. We were not too happy with that option and I would not order their cappuccino again as that was very disappointing. We would definitely go back because the food was excellent.
quick and easy brunch for us visiting, and we would come back. great service
The service was terrible from the hostess and our waiter. Barely came to check on us. I got the unlimited screw driver and they never came back to refill. our food did not come at the same time. food was cold. They tried to overcharge us. IT was HORRIBLE!
Pleasant atmosphere. Good food. I often come here for Sunday brunch.
Salad with lots of lettuce & minimal ingredients. Poor waitress service. Wouldn’t return.
We've gone to Thalia several times with friends for a pre-theatre meal. As long as you tell your server what time you need to be out, they'll get you there on time. The food is tasty, and there's a nice variety. Much better quality than most of the restaurants in the theatre district. We'll definitely go back again. My only recommendation for management is that they should add a few more appetizers that can be shared by all at the table, otherwise, the menu is terrific.
Great restaurant with nice servoce.
Came to Thalia with my mom & mother-in-law before a Broadway show. It was easy enough to find from the subway, even for non-city folk like us. The food was average. The service was almost non-existent: our server never even introduced herself by name, so when we needed something, we couldn’t even ask another server to send her over. We waited a good ten minutes after she dropped the check off for her to close out the bill. Both moms ordered off the prix-fixe brunch menu and were pleased with the selections for the price.
Had brunch here before a show. Location was very convenient and restaurant wasn’t very busy when we arrived. Got busier and server appeared to be waiting on numerous tables and was not very attentive....she didn’t appear very often. Food was very good though and we enjoyed our meal. We would return again and just hope for a more attentive server...
Pre theater meal. Initially, it took a while for anyone to come to our table. But once our order was taken, we were pleasantly pleased with the food and service.
Food was good but not great. The dining room does not open before 5 so for pre-theater guests it requires waiting.
Pre-fix meal was good and nice sized portions.
Clearly caters to the pre-theater crowd.
We had pre-theater reservations for a Saturday matinee, and we arrived at 12:30pm. After 10 minutes, we still had no water and were missing some utensils. When the waitress finally arrived, we explained that we had tickets for a 2pm show and needed to be served in a timely manner. The waitress clearly had a language problem as she did not write down the order right away, and when she did, she asked us to repeat the entire order. By 1pm we still didn't have our drinks. Other diners were eating, and our waitress just walked around befuddled. When we finally got the attention of another waitress, she attempted to help. After several minutes more, our drinks and my appetizer came out. When we still didn't have our entrees by 1:30pm, we got up, complained to the manager, who apologized and offered free drinks for our next visit (my husband doesn't drink). We left without having had the lunch which was, they said, "on the way." We won't be back, and neither should you.
I enjoyed my burger and fries, mom enjoyed her California rolls. My dad did not like his turkey burger, and son didn’t like his chicken sandwich. They offer free soda refills - a huge plus in NYC. Service very slow and the place was dead.
The food is good though a bit pricey for what it is - to be expected in that area. One disappointment was the "Jumbo Lump Crabmeat" cocktail. It was not remotely jumbo lump and it was pink! It looked more like salmon salad - shredded meat with other ingredients in it. I sent it back.
The food was excellent. (Arugula salad, mushroom and spinach ravioli, pasta with shrimp.)
Servers were swamped and the place is hectic and very loud. But it is so convenient to theaters! Our server was cordial, and did well considering the packed location. She was well-versed on the menu, vegetarian options, and ingredients. But she wasn't particularly prompt or attentive due to the pre-theater rush. Our water was refilled regularly. They got us out of there in time for the 7 pm curtain.
I see complaints from Open Table reviewers who had no time for desert, and I sympathize, but that's the nature of Theater District restaurants. We planned ahead with a 5 pm reservation and we had enough time for coffee before walking over to the theater. Overall a good experience.
Came here for a pre-theatre meal and all was great. Food was good, price was right, service was efficient and wine went well with our meal. Recommended for pre-theatre meal.
There are many choices in the Theatre District. We found the menu at Thalia to be limited (at least at brunch) and the food, service and ambience to be nothing special given the price. There was no standout moment or bite. Nothing was bad, but nothing was more than just good, either. My hamburger, while tasty, was over salted. The Nutella French Toast was not subtle - two big slabs of bread. There are better options in the area for our next visit.
It wasn't a great experience for me or my guest. Confused service. Very small portions for entrees. I'm a native New Yorker and only chose this because of its location to the theater we were attending after.
Excellent Burger! Highly recommended. Went to Thalia prior to a show and we were in and out fairly quicly. Service was attentive.
Have eaten here several times when in town; first time I felt duapointed. Watch way too noisy, stuffed in a table in main thoroughfare , and bumped oftener by service people. Food was average.
I will try again as hoping it's unusual
Had a private party. Table terrible. Never going back!!!!!
I barely ever saw my waitress. I never got my drink until after I was done eating.
They had 2 waitresses for a huge section. It was way too busy. The food was good but service horrendous.
Excellent food in a pleasant atmosphere in a great location for theatre. The service staff is also THE best.
Our only complaint was how long it took for our entrée to arrive. I ordered the pre-dinner menu and we told them we had a show at 7. Didn't have time for the dessert.
Solid choice for brunch before a show. Nice open space. Menu and service a bit uneven.
Quality and presentation have slipped over the years. Used to be a favorite, now visit only when it's the most convenient option pre-theater. Needs a refresh.
I love this place. It is convenient to Broadway theaters and the food is excellent; I especially like the lobster with mac & cheese.
do not go here if you want a quiet evening otherwise everything was great
Three couples had a lovely pre-matinee Sunday brunch. Everything was delicious: Tuna carpacio, Cobb salad, avocado toast, cheeseburger. Meals came with a gratis cocktail or class of wine. Service was excellent despite being very busy. Ignacio was especially accommodating, when a young friend joined our group of 6.
I have been a regular at Thalía for many years. Friends and I have a theater subscription with Manhatran Theater Club and Thalía has been our go to place when we have our theater performances.
Sadly, our visit on Sunday did not meet our usual expectations of Thalía. First, the addition of the take out section is unattractive. The removal of the Lounge area is also disappointing. But most disappointing was that we order dessert and coffee. The coffee came but no dessert despite our informing our waitress that we had a 2 pm curtain. She was not particularly attentive. Finally, we just paid our bill and left without dessert.
We need to re-evaluate whether Thalía will continue to be our go-to Restaurant.
Love, love, love this place! It's loud, but the food is so good and the drinks are also.
Our waiter was fantastic. The food was great. I recommend Thalia for a great experience
Always reliable and reasonable. My go-to spot in this neighborhood for pre-show dinner.
Our go to spot for pre theater — great, quick service and excellent food!
Great for pre theater.
Horrible service. Dirty glassware. Had to return my beer 3 times. No note from a waiter about special occasion. Clogged toilets. Also saw our waiter eating by the toilets. Will never come back.
It was Mother’s Day; however, we had early dinner reservations, it was our luck that someone called out so the service was slow. The food as good, they have a great pre-fix menu if you are going to the theater. We plan to give it another shot.
Stopped for a pre/post theater dinner. Good at getting people to their shows on time. The food was very good, Mushroom duxelle ravioli was delicious. My partner's roasted chicken was cooked to perfection. Generous pours on the wine. Definitely recommend if you want something upscale but not stuffy.
