    The food is great, so-so service

    My wife and I and another couple had brunch at Thalia's recently, and were extraordinarily pleased with the food and value. I can't recommend enough the lobster benedict. Plus, brunch comes with a bloody mary, screwdriver, or glass of wine (now THAT'S value!) All of my party were impressed with the food, but the service was only mediocre. Things started off well with our friendly and cheery waitress, who suggested the lobster benedict, for which we were all later grateful. However, once the drinks and bread (muffins) came out, she disappeared. Completely vanished. I would have sworn a waitress Bermuda Triangle had formed over the restaurant. We were trying to pay and leave for nearly 20 minutes. What gives, Thalia's? Finally, the resaurant itself is eye candy, with glowing but subdued orange lights, dark wood tables mahogany leather sofas, and light-colored walls. Even in the midst of a heavily trafficked brunch, we felt cozy and comfortable (making the interminable wait for the server to deliver and close out our bill much less excruciating). Despite the vanishing server, I highly recommend giving the brunch a shot. It is an excellent bargain in an expensive city.

    Brunch to die for...

    Excellent service exellent brunch. Right before our 3pm Wicked show we had only an hour to eat. They were so accomadating. They rushed our eggs benedict but didn't leave an egg unturned. (no punn intented) I will go back many times more and to think it is right up the street from where I work. This is why I love NY --hidden treasures.

    Very accomodating, good food but pricey

    Went here on a Thursday night in the holiday season without reservations. The placed was packed and the host told us it might be a long wait, however he had some possible no-shows they were waiting just a little more for. In about 10-15 mins we were seated and were promptly waited on. The crab cake appatizer was delicious but at $15 a bit expensive. All of our dishes were superbly presented and tasted fantastic. The filet was properly prepared and while the most expensive entree on the menu at $29, had other items (spinach, mushrooms and potatoes) to make it a complete meal and I felt satisfied.

    Restaurant, OK; the lounge is better

    Thalia is a pretty restaurant but the service is spotty and sometimes indifferent. The food is good to very good but nothing memoriable. I have been there for lunch/dinner about a dozen times, I remember the food being a little more exciting a couple years ago. I greatly prefer the lounge/bar area and go there often with work colleagues. The mixed drinks are well made and they have good house wines. The excellent lounge menu which includes the raw bar also makes it a fun after-work stop. I have never seen "scuffy" people at Thalia as one of the reviewers mentioned --- it is usually filled with local office workers which includes nearby ad agencies and record companies. So the crowd is hipper than the normal tourist crowd at many of the other theater district restaurants.

    Disappointed

    I have been dining in NYC for 40 years and this was a disappointing experience. The hostess was unattached. Impersonal and not at all engaging of her patrons. The table service was poor. The waitress was polite and kind but possibly not trained properly. The support staff was non interested. Needed to request bread 1/2 hr after arriving got our cheese final course and asked the deliverer for utensiles and waited between 5 and 10 minutes could get no ones attention and had to go and get our own. Complained to the manager of the evening and he blamed it on the waitress who I believe was overworked. We will not return.

    Happy Ladies...

    A group of us, women, went to Thalia last week for pre-theatre brunch. Our excellent experience at Thalia added to our lovely day. The food was excellent and our kind and patient waitress never lost her sense of humor with a table of "hard to please" theatre goers. So thanks for a lovely brunch and to the wonderful service we received from the pretty young woman that was as "sweet " as could be. See you soon again, Thalia!

    2-1/2 stars

    Amazing crab cake appetizer in the Restaurant Week menu. The beet risotto was a bit unusual but extremely good, although it arrived a bit cold. The accompanying lamb was fork-tender but a little bit under-seasoned. The chocolate cake was better than average. Lovely seating at the lounge right in the middle of the restaurant and perfect for people-watching. Crowd was a bit scruffy that night...
