The theater district in NY is not known for great restaurants; some famous names, sure, but not great. Thalia falls firmly into the average category. The food was fine; no complaints, but not a hint of "wow" factor. Service was fine. Prices were not terribly high for a tourist area, but I wouldn't want to take a family on a... More

We discovered Thalia after a show, a few years ago and we always make a point to stop in for dinner or just drinks. Wonderful atmosphere and the food and drinks are awesome!

We visit Thalia every time we are in the city and it never disappoints. The night we were there they had two large parties of over 50 guests yet our service couldn't have been more exemplary!! The spinach salad is a must and plenty for 2 people to share. The cinnamon red wine sauce on the short ribs is beyond... More

Not a great restaurant for the Times Square area (which has few really good places), but this is one of the best restaurants I've eaten at in all of NYC. A very hip and happening atmosphere inside with a great bar/lounge area, but it is not pretentious or arrogant and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. The mussels would... More

Thalia is located in the heart of the theater district on 8th Avenue and 50th St. The decor is modern. Service is attentive and crisp. Food is very good: their spaghetti is a somewhat thick vermicelli style. It's pricey at $18.00. The salmon and lamb are also recommended. They agreed to prepare a salad with grilled shrimp tho it was... More

Went on the basis of some other good reviews for a pre-theatre meal and was not disappointed. Great burger!

My friends and I visited NYC for a birthday weekend. We went to Thalia for dinner because it is in the heart of the theater district. The ambiance was nice, dimly lit, and had a fun energy to it. We enjoyed the drinks, the entrees, and the desserts. The lobster bisque was um um good (so good I had to... More

We were visiting NYC and were looking for a place to eat at one night. Hopped in here because of the oyster special. My brother-in-law said they were really good, I had the calamari which wasnt bad, my sister had the spaghethi which was a little bland. Drinks were a bit pricey. The place was packed at 11pm.

Went to dinner before a show and we were not disappointed. Menu was extensive but everything was superb. One of the best pieces of salmon I've ever had. Decor and atmosphere was fun, lively and hip. Great time!!
