First time at Thalassa and it was fabulous. Staff made you feel at home. Handsome inside with multiple dinning rooms and nice bar area. Wine list is extensive. My wife and I had the Greek salad and zucchini chips to start, both were delicious. We...More

If you're looking for non-pretentious yet great Greek, don't overlook Thalassa. This place is definitely off the beaten path but worth the trip. The food is fresh and on point, and the staff is as friendly as can be. On top of it all, the...More

If you want more than that, I don't know what to say. But, it isn't a 5* experience. The featured dessert (kind of a creme brulee in phyllo) was soggy (albeit tasty), but that was the only flaw. Also, they handled a group of 15...More

I have been to Thalassa on numerous occasions and have been very pleased with each dining experience. It is ideal spot for birthday dinners or a romantic date. The restaurant always seems intimate to me even when each table is occupied.

Very nice atmosphere! That's what impressed me the most. High ceilings, big space, flowing curtains. There was an area near the bar where they put out their fresh seafood produce in ice. The bathroom is in a wine cellar area. Candles everywhere. I saw photos...More
