    Atmosphere beats the food

    Upon entering the beautiful restaurant, we had a seat at the bar. I was given a nice greek wine much like a cabernet. We had a 9PM reservation and were seated at about 9:20. After the waiter finally came to take our order we had to wait close to 45 min. for our appetizers to come. For a very upscale and not overly crowded restaurant...this was unacceptable. The portions were of a good size but the food was pretty bland even with the spices that were in it. The fish a la carte had only 2 options that were for one serving and still at a minimum of $30/lb. the rest were for 2 or more. The fish was fair at best when our meals came another 30 min. later. The others at the table ordered meat and they said it was just ok as well. The prepared fish was better, but for the expense of the food...I have eaten much better meals. The dessert we had was coconut sorbet and another which were good. All in all...a very pretty place with very slow service and fair food.

    Ethereal atmosphere

    The decor is very unique & totally transports you to the Mediterranean. The soft shell crab is excellent.

    Not recommended

    I don't mind paying a decent amount of money for good food but the food wasn't even all that spectacular. Average at best. I've had way better Greek/Mediterranean food for half the price. The decor was nice and so was the display of fresh seafood but that was about it. The hosts and the waiters also have this air about them, almost as if my friends and I should have felt privileged to be able to eat there. Please! The worst part was after my friend signed the credit card receipt, one waiter picked up the billfold and stood right behind my friend to look at the tip amount before he handed it over to our head waiter who stood there also and looked at it. That's just rude.

    Expected better

    The food was just OK, and we tried EVERYTHING! Went with a group of 15 & ordered so much variety of stuff, but wasn't overly impressed with anything I had. It was good, but not amazing, but I guess living in nyc will turn you into a food snob.. Went with out-of towners for a medical convention, and they all loved it, luckily their company paid for it because it definitely would not have been worth my $$... but the space/decor is great!

    Loveboat thalassa

    I wanted to try this restaurant for a while. It more than beat my expectations. It was by far the best greek food I've had in this country (let alone, NYC). Everything was amazing from the olive oil to dip your bread in, the salads, to the amazing swordfish, desserts and of course greek coffee. The service was spot on, and friendly enough. It is a very pretty restaurant on top of it. I wish this boat could sail and I'd stay on and eat their food for weeks!

    One of my new favorites

    Very attentive service; excellent fish; very good wine; and a pleasant, uncrowded, and reasonably quiet atmosphere. It's a little too expensive to go very often, and I couldn't say whether the food is "authentically" Greek or not, but I enjoyed it very much.

    Pleasant atmosphere, food not very good

    Good olives and bread (usually a good sign) were followed by pretty good first courses (stuffed calamari were fairly good if a little rubbery, mussels were good, salad looked nice.) Main courses were all poor. Halibut cheeks were overcooked and oversalted but otherwise bland. The langoustine (which as I recall was advertised as a pound for $35) was small and tough. The St. Pierre was overcooked and served on a blob of fibrous artichokes. How do they manage to overcook it and then serve it tepid? The Greek wine (#103 I think it was, listed as sauv. blanc) had overtones of cooking sherry. Service was pompous and disorganized. Even at half the price I would have been disappointed. If you're going to ignore my advice and eat here anyhow (the place is attractive even if the food and service are poor), reserve a table downstairs if you like it quiet, upstairs if you prefer to have to shout to be heard.
