Due to the fact that my friend has a curious penchant for diners and their fare, I decided to take her to Odessa as part of her birthday gift in order to smother her not only in the diner ambience, but in the pierogies, blintzes, and other Eastern European/Greek delights that she craves. While she was perfectly happy with her turkey burger deluxe, I was somewhat underwhelmed by my spanakopita. It tasted good, but it wasn't memorable (but what should I really expect? I think I often hope for too much). I will say, however, that the side salad, a melange of feta, anchovies, greens, and a scrumptious little stuffed grape leaf, was excellent. Our waiter was also energetic, with a sense of humor and a kind disposition. While admittedly I probably wouldn't return (the excitement has left me), I'm still glad I went.

Other reviewers are correct. Odessa raises their prices without notice. I must say however, they are still worth the money late at night. Thank you you for such fast service too!!! Food seems toxic yet satisfying when you are loaded late at night....keep it coming guys til we die...nice people too.

odessa is family. it would feel weird if odessa was gone from avenue A and tompkins square. standard huge diner menu, huge diner portions, all reliable, they pull no punches... EXCEPT when getting delivery: WTF? padded bill city! finally caught on and began asking price of each item as well as bill total when placing order, with predictable end to inflated bill. but i still order and still love it and i do recommend it.

Who else delivers at 3:00 a.m.?? Consistently good food and service -- if you're starving in the middle of the night, look no further.

Love Odessa's but I gotta say, I do feel like they rip me off on the togo orders... when an order that fairly should be $8-$10 usually ends up to be $14-$17.
