Thalia was close to our hotel and we were tired and didn't want to venture further. We were delighted with the food and the service was very friendly and efficient. We ate there again for lunch with friends and had an excellent meal. Like so many restaurants it can get a bit noisy. We would go back again, next time... More

This restaurant is very trendy. Good place for drinks or dinner before your show. Our meals were very tasty and somewhat different. Chef has a good sense as to what goes together. Would love to go back and try some of his other dishes.

Thalia is attractive, the menu has variety, the staff is pleasant and the food is good. It was very crowded and the staff needed reminders to bring our main dishes timely, but finely came through. I recommend it.

This restaurant is in the heart of the theater district and offers good modern American food at reasonable prices (for NY restaurants). The restaurant is very attentive to pre-theater diners and works to make sure you will make your show; Thalia's take on shrimp scampi is quite good.

Went here on spec., and found it to be absolutely brilliant. From entering to being seen to your table, you start to take in the atmosphere. Service, food are second to none, a bit pricey but you are in New York. Best time for evening meal is between theatre shows 19-30 /20-00.

We have been here several times now and are never disappointed. The ambience is fantastic; upscale and lively. The wait staff is friendly and attentive, even getting my friend a cup of coffee after we had paid the bill and were still chatting at the table. The food does not disappoint. Delicious and the portions are generous. Truffle Parmesan fries... More

We've been coming to Thalia for dinner when in New York for years. We've never been disappointed. The food is delicious and beautifully presented. The staff is attentive and well trained. Thalia is in the heart of the theater district and works hard to get you to the theater on time.

Happened on this restaurant while walking back to our hotel after a day sightseeing. Great service, beautiful meal - we all had the burger and when they found out we were there for my birthday, I got a candle and happy birthday in chocolate in my dessert. Had a lovely bottle of pink champagne too :) Thanks to my Dad... More

Was recommended this place by a co-worker and I was not disappointed. The food was amazing! We ordered appetizers from the raw bar and while I personally don't like oysters; the rest of my group assured me they were awesome. I had the grilled skirt steak that came with truffle infused whipped potatoes - ahh..maze...ing!!! Our waitress was very attentive... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
