Thasos Greek Taverna
Can't beat it in Ft. LauderdaleAttractive restaurant with great food and friendly service. One of my favorites in Ft. Lauderdale! Noise level is very high but a fun place.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and the service wasThe 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.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, but WAAAAY TO LOUD!The food here was absolutely wonderful. The atmosphere is chic and funky, and the service was great. HOWEVER...the music noise level kept increasing throughout dinner to the point that we demanded it be turned down, a request that wasn't really taken seriously because the level decreased ever-so-slightly for about 5 minutes, then right back up it went. The have a separate seating section separated by a glass wall; the music in that area was much quieter and one would not have to literally shout at their dinner guests like my guests and I had to in the main dining area.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMa white blank canvas witha white blank canvas with colorful, mouth-watering, gourmet food painting your taste buds!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent experience.Thasos was recommended by a knowledgeable friend of mine when I asked about a good place for our anniversary dinner and Thasos was the absolute perfect place; inspired decor, superb service, unique and lively vibe and excellent food. We felt foolish that we didn't know about Thasos, it's literally 10 minutes from our house and its a neighborhood gem. Very South Beach feel though pretentious-free. Don't feel like you have to dress glam, we saw a little bit of everything and no one looked out of place. I can see that Thasos could be very noisy when packed, cement floors, brick walls reflect sound but don't let it put you off. We didn't find the prices or food portions out of line either, we are about quality, not quantity! We'll be back.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMNice placeGood fresh greek food, excellent service, pleasant atmosphere, white interior with colorful lights and candles. The only thing that lacks there is TV! They should put a couple of TVs for sure!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMEntrees are expensive. AppetisersEntrees are expensive. Appetisers are reasonably priced. Meatballs and watermelon salad delicious. Baklava very good and huge.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFlavorful & TraditionalMy second time to this fun and trendy local hot spot...... 100% better service. The meal was great! The waiter made the evening! He was ON IT! Great time. This is a super spot for friends wanting a small reunion with nice food and wine. Don't miss it. Take your out of town guests here.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is always great andThe food is always great and wait staff is very attentive.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMYou feel like your in SantoriniGreat place for having starters and drinks!! If you are hungry enough for an entrée you'll be pleasantly surprised the fish is always fresh. Don't leave without trying the green pea hummus and the tzatziki. Dress fresh...5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Vibe, Well Prepared FoodLove the vibe, even when they are not busy, anyone who appreciates design, color, lighting, will appreciate that much thought went into this built-from-the -ground up restaurant. It is almost all white, with all waitstaff and food runners in white as well, and only the ceiling neon-changing color lights adding color, plus the guests. Have had their whole fish on three occasions, the size of the fish varies, not the price, though. Don't fill up on appetizers, even though they are great (try the lamb balls!) Well priced wine list..hopefully they will offer happy hour food at the bar soon...5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingOne of the best meals I've had in awhile. Everything was excellent.

It was impossible to carry on a conversation, we could not hear the person sitting next to each other at our table.
They need to do something about it! There are ways to deal with that. There are engineers who specialize in acoustics. Do it please!!! Sooner rather than later.
Thank you!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time at the restaurantFirst time at the restaurant and will definitely return.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe overall experience andThe overall experience and atmosphere was great -
We had to request a different table as we were seated at the first table by the door outside. Know to request indoor or outdoor seating table or booth
We had a wonderful waitress.
We had a birthday in our party and she treated us to a birthday dessert.
Great drinks - the Ouzo Martinis are great
Amazing food - great variety of tapas shared plates - main courses are large enough to share too!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Greek - Great spaceGorgeous modern space . good lamb osso bucco. Snapper and Chilean sea bass are beat fish. Food was great but they need more diverse Greek entrees serves with capers, yogurt and cumcumner. Server was average but manager and host were great.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGlad we went backRevisited after it first opened. Vastly improved in terms of service. Food was well prepared and we were very pleased with quality and taste as we were the first time. Noise level much better sitting outside. Highly recommend as garlic and oil are not overly used as it is in other nearby Greek restaurant.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastiqueWow! Ambiance lounge. Classe! La nourriture est excellente. Les portion sont excellente. Le Saganaki. Hmmm
Jérôme notre serveur nous a servi en français! À recommander sans inquiétude.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWine list was excellent HadWine list was excellent
Had several nice appetizers but octopus was very salty. (too much for me to even eat)
Organic Salmon was perfectly cooked. My husband had lamb chops again.. devine!!
Waiter was attentive but felt he had too many tables to really service everyone properly. Was all over the place. Seemed very rushed after awhile which he was. bus boys should have picked up some of the slack.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe decor is outstanding,The decor is outstanding, but it is very noisy. I would suggest perhaps to dine earlier before the restaurant is full. The service and food were very good.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Greek food! GrilledExcellent Greek food!

BEST SINCE BEINGOUTRAGOUS.... BEST SINCE BEING IN THE GREEK ISLANDS..!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved Thasos. BeautifulWe loved Thasos. Beautiful ambiance and delicious food3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful overall experience!Delicious food, great atmosphere, will definitely return!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMYum.Second time there - with six of us - not always easy for a restaurant. But this place is on it. Or can be. After reviewing a lot of concerns on OT for erratic servers I can reassure readers that some servers are excellent and can do a fine job of handling even a large table. We shared several appetizers and had a few mains. Portions are large - we did fine with less than one main per person. Even the greek salad was tasty! Highlights - the roast chicken has this amazing wood smoke that will definitely be worth the return just to try that one again. Even the wine list had a few high points - one red that was both a great value and a rarely found wine as fewer than 100 cases were imported in to the US!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMSome of the best Greek foodSome of the best Greek food I have ever eaten. Highly recommend this place.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food & serviceFood was superb as was the service. We moved further back in the restaurant since the bar still had happy hour & it was a little loud. We brought someone here for their first time and they loved it. Thasos is consistently a very good experience.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMSurprisingly exceptional food!Very hip and happening place. You'd easily think you are in South Beach down in Miami. The food taste and quality was exceptional....a nice surprise coming from a trendy restaurant. Servers were friendly but a bit overwhelmed with a full house.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall, an excellent experience.Overall, an excellent experience. It was a busy Saturday night and we had made reservations for a group of 6. Our table was ready when we arrived and there no wait. We never felt rushed even though there was a large crowd waiting for seating. Service was excellent, our waitress very accommodating. The variety of spreads were wonderful - that and a appetizer could make a meal. The meals were all very good size proportions and also excellent. Our one complaint was the noise level - even sitting outside on the patio, we found it to be very loud.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBest spot north of Havanna!Being foodies from Chicago, by our last evening in Ft. Lauderdale our expectations for palatable food were super low (though we had some pretty great Cuban in N. Miami to be fair).
But this place is of international quality - maybe not a 5 star at that level - but easily a solid 3+ - but locally it's a glorious find. The food is simple yet sophistated - the service was truly graceful and the environment so fun yet elegant.
Other than our dear friends, it's the one thing that would bring us back to Ft. Lauderdale.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat new place, they areGreat new place, they are trying hard, but the noise level is too loud for normal conversation. The accoustics were not considered when this place was built.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat authentic Greek cuisine.Great authentic Greek cuisine. Wonderful atmosphere and service. Most definitely will be returning soon.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great service!Great food, great service! Was definitely a little noisy(echoey) in the inside seating area, but wasn't anything terrible. The food was all fresh, quick, and delicious and the place is beautifully designed. I would definitely go here again.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a find! Osso bucco wasWhat a find! Osso bucco was out of this world as was the veal chop. Great wine list. Don't know why I waited so long for my first visit. I will return!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our second time atThis was our second time at Thasos Greek Taverna.We met friends from Boca West when we drove up from Hallandale for dinner last week.After ordering our wine,we checked the menu and decided to share a large Greek salad and then ordered mains of Lamb Osso Bucco for the men and Split chicken for the gals.The Osso Bucco was tender and moist, the chicken was perfectly done and tasty.We shared a ricotta based dessert and a wonderful cheese cake,washed down with excellent coffee.Our terrific waiter was a Montreal native and was most knowledgable about the menu and full of anecdotes about his life in Montreal.Great evening in Ft. Lauderdale !2/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is our 3rd visit to thisThis is our 3rd visit to this beautiful restaurant. We like to food,ambiance and service very much. Considering what they charge for a cocktail, the glass should be filled to the rim.2/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our second visitThis was our second visit to Thasos and we were once again impressed. The drinks were well prepared and the shrimp Saganaki was ever so good and both entrees the Roast Pork and the Moussaka were top rate. This new restaurant gives you not only a visually stimulating experience (the exquisite lighting) but a delightful food experience. It's an absolute gem. Try it you will be very pleased.1/6/2013 12:00:00 AMPerhaps it was the night...Beautiful space - how they've converted a vacant lot to a very hip modern but classically Greek look. We went on NY Eve - so perhaps this reflected the kitchen when they're stressed - but our hot appetizers were both tepid and that was a detraction from the decent flavors. And while they have a fairly long wine list there are no vintages listed - a reflection that this list is not directed to those who are serious about a wine choice.12/31/2012 12:00:00 AMBeauty decorated, friendlyBeauty decorated, friendly staff, great food. Too noisy. ,11/26/2012 12:00:00 AMThis was our first opportunityThis was our first opportunity to try Thasos Greek Taverna and we were very impressed. The decor and particularly the lighting is quite spectacular. The menu is appealing and extensive. We thoroughly enjoyed the eggplant and the mussels appetizers. The salmon entree was perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. The lamb chops were also wonderfully seasoned, tender and truly delightful. We ordered a wonderful Red Zin and it complimented both entrees. Patrick our server was professional, friendly and served each course with panache.11/19/2012 12:00:00 AM
