Great seafood, Reasonable Prices – Great food. Everyone in our party of six enjoyed their meal. The prices were quite reasonable for NYC. The only negative was that the bathroom wasn't very clean
Good food, but super slow – I had to go here for a lunch meeting and the food was good, but the service was pretty bad. They were acting like they were really busy, but in fact, the restaurant was nearly empty. Since we only saw our waiter about 2 times we had to ask the other wait staff when we needed something. He even took forever to take the check. So, the food is good, but the service is slow!
Nice Decor.. food not that great – My husband and I went for pre-theater dinner. I informed the waitress that we were going to a show and the food came out very quickly. The appetizers were good, my husband had the cream of mushroom soup and I have the mozz & tomato salad. Our entrees were below average. I had the crab cakes, do not recommend. My husband had the strip steak, he hated the way it was seasoned. I would not recommend. Get a slice of pizza at Ray's before your show and go someplace not in Time Sq/ Theather District for a late dinner.
beautiful space, bar and dining area really nice – Thalia is eye candy both from the street and being on the inside. Towering ceiling throughout, beautiful lighting and a really well designed layout. The menu, some call it new American, I guess that is about right. There are choices on the menu for just about anyone: meat or vege lover. The food is good, but it doesn't impress. It's reasonably priced for the city and the area. We didn't get the WOW we were hoping for. Ordered the side of Thalia fries which we thought might be spiced or otherwise special since they put their own name to the side dish. But they were just freakin fries. I don't even think there was salt on them. So I can't suggest ordering them -- unless you want to spend big bucks on fries. Service was very good and the wine was generous.
WORST SERVICE AT CAFE – I have gone to Thalia cafe every day for the past maybe 5 years - and now every morning a large group of high school kids are in there, and they (the employees) do not pay attention to regular customers and I WILL NEVER STOP IN HERE AGAIN. it is insane and ridiculous and highly unprofessional.
Fantastic - one place that has it all, and does it all well – This place really does have it all..
I live down the street and have done everything from business meetings to a late night with the girls there... the actual restaurant is beautiful but not overdone.
things you have to try: the lobster eggs benedict at brunch, the scallops and tiramisu at dinner, and the burger if you are in the lounge area.
thalia is a 'must try' in midtown!!
NEVER GO HERE – Never go here!!!!!! This place is the worst. This place has waiters will listen to your conversations, and if you don't tip like 20 to 25% of the bill the managers will come to you and tell you that you did not leave enought and that you are not welcomed and they will be rude and nasty to you. I will be sure to tell everyone and post everywhere NEVER to go to that place. It is awful and has bad employees and owners.
DO NOT GO HERE!!! – This restaurnat was the worst. I went here to celebrate a birthday with 3 of my friends. The food was so so (small portions) and the service was horrible. We had to continually ask for more water and wait FOREVER for our food to come. So when it came time to pay the bill we left a 10% tip. The waiter actually didn't even deserve a tip so we thought 10% was generous since the service was so horrible. The waiter obviously didn't like his tip becasue the manager of the restaurant came over to our table and told us that out tip was UNACCEPTABLE. She said 20% is the norm and we were not welcomed back to Thalia ever again!!! She also told us that she recognized us and that we "caused trouble" in the restaurant before. This was a complete lie since it was our fist time in Thalia. She also went on to tell us how the waiter overheard parts of our conversation!!! The whole situation ws unbelieveable. She lectured us for over 1/2 hour and then started yelling. Out bill was over $200 and this is the way we were treated!!!! The manger's name was JENNIFER. She was very unprofessional and absoluteley rude. DO NOT GO HERE unless you intend on leaving minimum 20% tip for horrible service otherwise you will be embarassed the way we were. There are so many better restaurants in midtown to go to. Avoid this horrible place!!!!!
Everyone here is rude!!!! – rude owner.....
walk right past this place and do not stop. so many better places in NYC to go too.
WHAT A GREAT NIGHT! – Thalia will forever be a special place to me for many reasons. On Thursday I had dinner there with my then boyfriend. We had planned a trip to NYC and he had chosen everything on the trip from the Broadway shows to the hotel to our dining destinations....and Thalia was on his list of places for us to visit.
He had a heard about Thalia thru a friend's recommendation and was the reason for his choice to dine here. The place is gorgeous so we wanted to fully enjoy the night which is why instead of going right to our table we wanted to first enjoy cocktails in the cozy front lounge. After a drink we went into the dining room to our quiet little table on the upper seating area. It was private and perfect. The waiter we had was wonderful, attentive and charming. He helped us make appetizer and dinner selections and we enjoyed them all. The Salmon dish is unique and my husband had the Lamb Shank which was so good the meat fell from the bone. Althought the food and wine we had was perfect, what makes the night so special is that my husband PROPOSED to me! Right at our table! (of course I said YES, I dont want to end up an OLD MAID!! :) The next thing I know, two of the managers came over with champagne for us on the house and congratulated us on our engagement. How nice and how special we felt. We even received a round of applause! All in all, Thalia was a wonderful experience....from the ambiance to the food to the way the managerial and service staff treated us and of course.... to the fact that I am soon to be married. Visit Thalia...and ENJOY!
