Can't beat it in Ft. Lauderdale
Attractive restaurant with great food and friendly service. One of my favorites in Ft. Lauderdale! Noise level is very high but a fun place.

The food and the service was
The food and the service was great. I had the crispy skin snapper which was wonderful. My only issue is the noise level. The walls and floor are glass and stone. Nothing to aborb the sound. It was hard to talk. I suggest sitting on the patio.

The place is a little loud, but the excellent food, outstanding service, and beautiful setting make up for it. This is a gem for the Fort Lauderdale restaurant scene.

A lovely evening at Thasos. The decor is quite striking. White everywhere, except for the changing colors in the ceiling. Candles along the wall were lovely, and would have been better had they all been lit! We were greeted by one of the servers since the host was seating another table, and he was very nice to assure us we would be seated soon. The Greek salad was great -- lots of fresh, fresh tomatoes (that actually tasted like tomatoes!) and cucumbers. We could have made a meal just from the salad and bread! The eggplant spread we ordered needed more flavor, as did the moussaka. My husband's mussels were very plump and flavorful. The Greek wine the server suggested was perfect. We will go back, and order fish instead of Greek.

Best Chilean Sea Bass ever
Great service from Dray, our waiter. The sea bass special was stunning.

Competition 4 Greek Islands Taverna
Excellent saganaki, even if the flame went out before it made it to the table, and outstanding lamb chops.
The Greek salad was also very good though a bit small for the price.
We went early (6:30pm) so the noise level that is the subject of lots of complaints on line was not a problem.
Server was excellent even though it was the end of a long shift for him.
Greek Island folks are only friendly to their regulars. This place seemed happy to have new customers.
We will return.

Not only the best Greek Food in Mia
Not only is Thasossos the best Greek food in S. Florida, maybe the country too, it is just great food period. Excellent selection of wines, well-trained staff, high energey/high design interior; Delightful, quiet, rustic outdoor porch.Top notch ingredients deliciously prepared. Just what you are hoping for

Food was fantastic. Lots of
Food was fantastic. Lots of creative options. Appetizers and tapas were large portions and prices were reasonable. The restaurant is beautifully decorated. Great drink and wine menu. The only negative was that it was quite loud inside.

Very White and Clean
Our family really enjoyed everything about our trip to Thasos.
The only thing I would like to comment on is the dressing
for the summer salad. Beautiful salad; but not too interesting
of a dressing.
The Server we had was "top notch" - excellent.
We will be back!

Great food and fair prices!
Great food and fair prices! Service is excellent and everyone is friendly and welcoming. Owner pays close attention to everything. You will not be dissapointed!
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were seated right away. The staff was very friendly, perfect service, great ambience, tasty food, and good prices on the menu. We will definitely go back and tell our friends all about it.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
perfect except for noise level
Try the "tapas" and plate sharing to create a delicious and interesting dining experience. They have plenty of gluten free options, by the way. Our only complaint, and reason for not going more often and not going with other couples, is that there is no quieter section. There is no quiet corner where conversation can flourish. The only hope is to show up at off hours in the summertime.
7/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
The restaurant has a very pleasant and modern design. The food was excellent and the service outstanding. We came for an early dinner and the restaurant was not very crowded. By the time we were done and leaving the entire restaurant was full. The noise level is certainly on the high end, but the ambiance is very vibrant.

A Creative Gem of a Restaurant
Thasos is best known for its unique lovely white building and amazing décor. But it is rare to find such creative, delicious and moderately priced food in South Florida. From the cantaloupe soup with a crab meat island floating in the center of the bowl to the creative presentation of the salads and main courses - this is something you might find in a culinary institute or in a fine dining bistro in New York's SOHO or TRIBECA districts. I had the sea bass, which was perfectly deboned at my table. The roasted vegetables were al dente & tasty. I had a glass of a sparkling rose wine that perfectly complemented my soup, salad and fish. or dessert, a home made carrot cake with a mixture of chopped walnuts and raisins made warm with icing.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
And delicious too! Hubby and I had a fantastic meal there Monday night. Just love the ambience, bright, clean, modern....fun! And the food was great too. Don't miss the watermelon salad, so refreshing! Also loved the chicken. Nice selection of Greek wines by the glass.
Will go back when we are in town. The staff was warm and friendly. Truly a gem hidden in Ft. Lauderdale.

Not your average Greek,food
Great decor. Sumptuous food. Noise level excessive and intrusive.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was great. Ambience definitely a Saturday-night dinner rather than a weekday or early Sunday evening.
Only complaint is that the noise level--and especially the oppressive techno music--was too much for the over-40 patron.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Heard of it through word-of-mouth...... bright, modern, friendly staff, attractive crowd, authentic Greek cuisine.

Keeps On Delivering
My 3rd time here. The room is still such a plus - all white with these colorful light splashes. While I don't think every dish on the menu is a wow, enough are to keep coming back. While the watermelon / feta salad is simple and doesn't really show off the chef, it sure is a great summer dish to start a meal. The highlights were the lamb chops with that grilled flavor that is so essential for great Greek cooking. The lamb meatballs were also very good though lacked that grilled sizzle. I though the crab fritters were just Ok though our sweet waiter Jason said they're a hit with many. The wine list is reasonable and has enough hidden gems to be fun for us wine oriented types. No doubt I'll be back.
8/13/2013 5:00:00 PM
Thasos is excellent. The food was outstanding and the service could not have been better. Dale our waiter was very helpful and attentive.Great wine selection. We made our dinner a selection of appetizers and each one was better and better. Definitely going back.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Hip, modern, gourmet Greek
Good food, varied menu, nice wine list and good service. Who can ask for anything more!
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Not quite perfect
This is an awesome restaurant, which would be perfection if the had better control of the sound. While conversation is possible, one must raise one's voice to be heard. The surfaces are so hard that sound riccochets, creating almost an echo chamber unpleasant effect.
Other than that, the architecture and decor are original and delightful and worth a trip, the service is excellent and the food is brilliant. We would be there far more often--and I mean FAR MORE--if only the noise atmosphere were more pleasant. But each time we are deciding where to dine out, we find ourselves wavering on this particular choice because, while they have almost everything right, they've got the sound very wrong.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Want to have fun!
Very nice place, clean, vibrant, excellent service, great food, reasonable pricing, what more can you ask ?
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Greek Addition
We enjoyed our meal a lot, particularly the octopus& shrimp saganaki. This is a great addition to the neighborhood and we much prefer to Greek Islands Taverna. Desserts, however, were not particularly traditional and only fair. The restaurant is physically stunning and one is made to feel very welcomed.
8/30/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great food great ambience an servic
We had a fabulous dinner with our party of 11 people!! The food was great! We couldn't ask for better service! Our friends loved the entire evening! Noise was not an issue,
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife wanted dinner at a Greek restaurant for her birthday and we heard about Thasos through various local papers. We were not disappointed. We thoroughly enjoyed the décor, food and service. It was easy to find, close to A1A, parking was easy, the décor was very relaxing and the food and service was WONDERFUL!!! We highly recommend it to all.
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is my third time here, The food is delicious, The service was fabulous. and the ambiance makes you feel like your in another city or country.

It is rare for a restauraant
It is rare for a restauraant to serve great food in a great ambience without losing the family touch that created it, this restaurant manages to do kjust that. the food is amazing and in the true tradition of Greece, served in a modern presentation.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
love the vibe
Thasos is SO SOBE and you don't have to travel I95 to get there! The atmosphere is vibrantly white and inviting with pops of fun color. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The drink menu is original. The wine, superb = and they decant it at your table - a nice feature. Hummus always tasty. fried feta yummy. Lamb chops - delish. I love this restaurant and even if you just sit at the bar and enjoy some apps it is worth the $$. You can see and be seen if you choose, LOL, or you can enjoy peopling watching as most do enjoy wearing their new duds. GO!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun atmosphere and a great meal!
Everything from start to finish was great...we were greeted at the front door and everyone paid attention to us throughout dinner making sure all our needs were met....the owner even bought us desserts on the house...the food was great...being Greek can make be a critic, but this compared to mom's home cooking and meals I have when in Greece...certainly recommend this establishment...looking forward to going there again next time I'm in town..
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Tasso was very good. The Greek
Tasso was very good. The Greek fish was outstanding. The chicken was good but a little over cooked so white meat was dry.
Lamb chops were good. Greek salad was excellent. Nice atmosphere, great waitress, Ryan.
9/28/2013 5:00:00 PM
As it was our first time there, we were completely amazed by the entire experience. Not to be missed!!!!
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, nice ambience
The whole restaurant is white with soft mood setting lighting. Lamb meatballs were absolutely to die for, seasoned to perfection with the right amount of feta cheese. Calamari was a little disappointing however, not for the quality but for the normalness of it. Nothing special separated this from other calamari dishes, the sauce was average and the dish was a little over salted. Had the scallops and lamb chops. Scallops were unbelievable, still a little to salty, but cooked to perfection. Same with the lamb, came out exactly as requested but overly salty. For dessert the baklava was huge and extremely tastyand the panna cotta (for my first try) was pretty good. The vanilla bean came through wonderfully.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Thesis is the most beautiful restaurant in Fort Lauderdale. The sparkling white interiors make up for the lack of water view. Soft air conditioning feels like ocean breeze.
Food is mostly very good and very rich. We were disappointed that "baked eggplant" was stuffed w meat- if the menu had stated that I wouldn't have ordered it. Watermelon salad was wonderful but gyros were dry and tasteless. Lots of garlic everywhere.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Greek night out
We were a party of three. The restaurant is bright, upscale. We'd read the music was loud but at 7:45 on a Friday it was not at all intrusive. Two of our party ordered lamb chops which were not as well seasoned as they like. One person would have preferred double cut chops and it might be nice to offer that as option.
I ordered the soup of the day - cauliflower - which was delicious. My main course was the Pietala sampler -- delicious and a wonderful bargain. Even with my dinner-mates helping out, I wasn't able to finish them all. Our waiter suggested a side of potatoes which were wonderful. The service was outstanding -- the staff attentive, helpful and knowledgeable. The personable manager stopped by all the tables. Nice
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful little gem.
Happened upon this wonderful place via the app AROUND ME while looking for a place we could walk to from the hotel IL LUGANO. This was a very pleasant surprise! We first of all loved the ambiance of the place, the food was excellent and our server was awesome, attentive, friendly and very professional as well. His name was Derrell and I would highly recommend him as well as the restaurant. The restaurant menu was great also as they had small plates, larger entrees and starters as well as dessert so you could really mix it up. They serve you a wonderful plate of yummy bread with olive tapenade to start out with. Decent wine list and prices also! Go try it out, you won't regret it.
10/30/2013 5:00:00 PM
We love the appetizers, mains dishes are the perfect finish. Great authentic food.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food & wonderful ambience
Our new favorite restaurant for excellent Greek food, especially lamb. Beautiful all-white minimalist interior that evokes the look of a sunny Greek isle. It's a place we can take out-of-town guests who enjoy Greek food without fear they'll be disappointed, as we did just 2 nights ago.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Better than I thought it would be
Was pleasantly surprised. The food was really really good. Had the octupus and grape leaves for appetizer and the sea bass for dinner and they were all outstanding. Fresh, flavorful, not heavy. The watermelon cocktail was also fantastic. I started with a Greek red wine at the bar and the bartender was awesome and so was the wine. Our server at the table was also fantastic. The place looks like it should be on Las Olas or in NYC or Miami rather than Oakland off of A1A. I do love the all white interior that makes you feel like it's some Greek Island. Only complaint is that it was TOO bright. Felt like I was being prepped for surgery....
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Made to feel special.......
We were greeted like we were vip's. Everything was just as we hoped. Thanks!
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Second visit and the food is interesting and tasty. Menu has changed and there are more typical Greek dishes now available. Highly recommend the panna cotta for dessert. Side dishes are also interesting. Good for groups as you can sample more dishes. My only negative is the price of wine which can run to 25% of the tab.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Everything the salad, the fish, the vegetables were all fresh and prepared right, they not over cooked. Beautiful decor, a very nice experience.
Three of us dined and all three enjoyed their dinner! We will go back again.

The restaurant is beautiful,
The restaurant is beautiful, the food and service excellent. The noise level , however, is unbearable!!!!
Your rating system only allows the term "energetic' for noise level which does not accurately describe the deafening noise.

Real Greek Ambiance And Food
Very interesting and fun. The service was 5 star and food was excellent.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had always been interested in trying Thasos as it's near my home. Beautifully done on the exterior and interior...the service was absolutely great and the vibe of the restaurant was friendly and welcoming. Food was great and so where the cocktails...all made with fresh juices. Definitely going back.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
I celebrated my B-Day there and we tried many dishes. We loved everything. All of the dishes were prepared to perfection. Their drinks are amazing as well. My favorite is the octopus salad. Prepared with fresh juices, you can't go wrong! The deserts were great, too! The atmosphere is incredible, very clean and all in white like every Greek Restaurant should be! Over all this is one of my favorite restaurants in town.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
The ambience is great if you
The ambience is great if you like everything white white white from the waiters clothes to the painted brick walls it was all white. In other words a little sterile. Service was very good, bartender tweaked our drinks when we asked him to and the server was polite and prompt. Food was ok. appetizers were very good, keftadas and the flaming cheese. My entre, lamb chops, although meaty, were a little bland. Another person in our party got the sea bass and thought it was excellent. Of the deserts, the baklava was dry but the syrup poured over it was delicious. Also, the place was not packed but was still too noisy.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Thasos is a very trendy Greek restaurant. Food was good to excellent. Reasonably priced for this type of restaurant. Open atmosphere and an open bar. Good for either sit down dining or apps and drinks at the bar. Waiters/waitresses were young and reasonably knowledgeable. I recommend Thasos if you like Greek food or if you want to try a different eatery amongst some of Lauderdale's best.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
greece in Ft lauderdale
The food is fabulous and the atmosphere is the best ,I feel as though I'm eating in Satorini. authentic dishes great presentation, a little pricey but worth it.

I don't know why I'm surprise each time by how great Thasos is. Always lots of options, great food, and a very cool atmosphere. Keep up the great work : ) Vickie
