I read the title to the review before so it gave me the idea of this title. First of all when you walk in you are instantly treated as royalty. The Matre'd is very professional & the same for the wine director. You are greeted at the end of the bar by the finest, freshest fish that are flown in by Thalassa directly. The apps are prepared to perfection. Try the octopus, the tenderness, tasty, ever. also the scallop app a winner. Fish is grilled and prepared with Extra Virgin Olive Oil & Fine capers. The wine list is also a real winner many hard to find diamonds. The crowd is very attractive, good eye candy. Did not eat desserts but they looked really good at the table next to us. Will be back soon.

It didn't remind me of Greece at all. This is basically a "kseno" (anyone who isn't Greek) trap. If you want real Greek food go to Greece....unfortunately nothing compares from my experience. Maybe one or two places in Astoria. Try finding a taverna by the water with the freshest fish for 1 hundreth of the price in New York. I don't understand what they are charging the scenery or is it the design of the plate?

I love this place! It's a gorgeous restaurant with incredible food and impeccable service. Very knowledgeable sommelier - try the Greek wines; great wine list overall although a bit pricey for domestics. Service makes you feel special. Food is outstanding - if you've never had handmade dolmas, try them here, although it's hard to go wrong with anything!

The food was good, but such small portions. They recommended a greek wine to us that was made by the same company that owned the restaurant! It was not good. The best part was the dessert, chocolate crepes.

Thalassa is one of the most beautiful restaurants in the city with fantastically fresh fish and attentive service....Be prepared to spend a pretty penny, but when you go a great restaurant like Thalassa you dont mind getting what you pay for... I highly reccommend it...Better food then Milos and much much prettier.

Tribecas new secret you would never think such fresher than fresh fish is in New York. Grilled perfectly thought I was back in Greece overlooking the Aegean. Service was professional no jibber from the staff. Wine from Kistler range to full range of high quality - value Greek wines that was great. Desserts, need to hit the gym! Strongly recommend this rest if you like the finer things.
