    The food was pretty good but pricy for Greek food. The service was terrible. Took two hours to get food and another just to get a check.

    Thasos has suffered some bad press in previous reviews - but they have come out shining like a star ! Dinner guests were pleased with the ambiance, the service was terrific and the food worth a trip to this neighborhood gem. No problems here - seems as if the owners and staff have gotten their collective acts together and they are on a roll ! Congratulations for getting through those intiall dulldrums and critical reviews. This is a gem, for sure ! I recommend without reserve - my guests, from Berlin, were delighted to be at Thasos and will return !

    I love the award-winning design and decor at this newer Greek restaurant in Fort Lauderdale. Very accessible for seniors and wheelchairs. Delicious food, and offerings include small and large plates to share. Watermelon salad is a refreshing starter, and try a signature cocktail! My husband tried the melon, hibiscus drink and it was wonderful. Lamb chops are tasty and all of the vegetable sides are great. Makes me wish I was back in Santorini!

    Been to this place twice - the first time was during the week and not really busy, but the food & service was amazing. Way, way better than the other Greek restaurant in the area! We've been telling everyone how good it is - but thought we should go back on a Friday night to see if was as good as we remembered. It was very busy but the food & service was as consistent as our previous visit! 2Will be going back soon - wish they were open for lunch :(

    Food was very good. However, we had a reservation and the hostess did not care if she sat us or not. The hostess did not give a good impression and definitely had an attitude. She sent the waitress to seat us at a table that wasn't ready and then we had to wait for another table for 20 minutes that was outside in the rain. Then we just got up and moved to a different table ourselves. Won't likely go back to this restaurant.

    The excitement started the minute we pulled into the free valet parking. THE PLACE WAS BEAUTIFUL! and it ony got better as we walked in to a transformative space. We felt like we were in some modern hip restaurant in Greece. Being Greek myself and haveing been raised on greek food, I can safely assure you the food was amazing, authentic and modern. The entire staff made us feel special and very welcome as they attended to our every need. This is a "must" place for anyone looking for a great night out in Ft Lauderdale.

    Had 8:15 reservations and arrived 5 minutes early. Waited at the bar and saw many that arrived after us be seated first. Even after being told the it would be 5-10 minutes until our table was ready, we waited 45 minutes to be seated at our table. This was met with ambivalence when it was noted. The food was very good, though.

    By reading the reviews we decided to go early (5:30pm) in order to skip the loud music, the big mess of people, bad service and long waits (see other reviews) It worked ! However, appetizers and salads were bland. The entrees are limited and overpriced, and no Happy Hour on Saturdays (!?!) We both went for the grilled octopus (small plate $18) GOOD. Finally, they only had 1 of the desserts we wanted (creme caramel) but it was warm, with little caramel on top and way too creamy. We had a good British server though. Free bread was good, due to an Italian bakery on the other side of the road. The restaurant looks great, but we won't be back; the ambiance is very "South Beach-ish", problem is that it's in Fort Lauderdale and far from downtown.

    I always looked forward to the moussaka at Thasos. It was as close to the real thing outside Greece. This time it's all changed - they now serve it as a big slab rather than the earthenware bowls, the potato was very thickly sliced, the meat very under seasoned and the top layer far too thick. It's become a Greek sheperd's pie rather than a moussaka. The service wasn't great - an order of French fries arrived three quarters the way through the main course (and they weren't very good either). The noise level was ridiculous - why do restaurants have to put on music when the noise level is already high. We couldn't wait to get out. Far too expensive for the quality.

    Every dish we had at Thassos was fresh and delicious. Our friend had a large pork chop that was excellent. My partner had moussaka that was also excellent and the size of a house. I had several small plates. Lamb meatballs and the eggplant casserole. We shared the large salad to start. Our waiter was attentive and friendly. We hadn't been here for several months, but from our experience, the food was so much better than our last visits. Will definitely go again.

    The food was nicely prepared and tasted great (except for the calamari). The noise level was terrible. Could not hear each other talk. And our waiter was pleasant but very very very pushy about ordering food. He kept saying try this, try that. And started writing on his pad as though we had agreed to take it. He also wanted to take our drink, appetizer and food order all at the same time. We had to insist several times that he just get us our drinks and appetizers and then we'd look at the menu and order. Don't think I'd go there again--but guess I should never say never

    Previous experiences have been outstanding. Now the kitchen cant turn out the standards that made the restaurant such a draw. More than that, the kitchen can't even turn out entrees - after 3 hours we left with apologies from the host, a $300 tab, and only 1/2 of our entrees ever being delivered. Outrageous. Stay away.

    I had heard good things about Thasos that I decided to give it a try. I was very disappointed. We got there early to have a drink at the bar, but the maitre d' insisted on seating as he warned that he might not have a table for us at our reservation time. The service from the start was terrible. Our waiter was pleasant enough, but just wasn't with it. We had to ask for bread, our drink order took forever, and I had to ask for my glass of wine that I ordered with dinner twice. I was practically finished with my dinner by the time the wine came. The food was good, not great, but good. I might give it another try, but honestly I'm not sure it will be any better. It's a shame because the venue is stunning.

    We dined at Thasos this past Saturday evening (our 3 time here). Our reservation was for 7:15. The restaurant was not very busy at this hour, but the service was extremely slow. It took forever for our waiter to greet us and take a drink order. He did not speak English very well, and had a difficult time taking our dinner order. The food took a long time to arrive as well. Disappointed in the stuffed cabbage and Brussel sprouts. Very bland.

    The restaurant is beautiful and vibrant. The staff is friendly. The food is delicious and the portions are bigger than you would expect at an upscale restaurant. My fiancée started with the watermelon salad and I had the tomato and cucumber salad with feta. We swapped in the middle and loved them both. My fiancée wants us to start making the watermelon salad at home now. I had the beef tenderloin, which was perfect. My fiancée had the chicken and he was impressed as well. Creme Brûlée and baclava finished off our night. Since it was Valentine's Day, the owner was delivering a pink rose to each female diner, a very sweet touch I thought. We look forward to our next visit!

    We eat here often, sometimes for special occasions and sometimes just because. We have never made a reservation before. But since it was Valentines day, we thought it would be smart to reserve a table. We specified we wanted a side booth vs a center table, we ended up in a center table. Not exactly what we were looking for a romantic dinner but the service and food were great as usual so no big deal about the table. This is a really fun place to dine, even if you are just getting the appetizers and drinks. We bring all our out of town guests here and they are always impressed.

    Valentine's day dinner there....Bocelli concert afterwards!!! A memorable evening. Our waitress (Amanda B) was ever-vigilant, highly responsive, and made sure that the delicious dishes were brought out in time for us to finish dinner and dessert, and still make it to the concert on time. She is very pleasant and perceptive, knows the menu well, and is exquisitely sensitive to her guests' needs! The food was wonderful and very fresh. We will return!
