    We have been here a few times, the last time we visited Thasos we sat inside and the noise level was out of control. This time we sat in the porch area. What a difference. Food as always was great with service complimenting everyrhing. The manager visited our table thought out the meal. We ordered all kinds of food off the menu and everything was top shelve. You can count on it that we will return.

    For years my family and I have gone to Miami/Ft Lauderdale and gone to many resturants. This time we decided to try Thasos based on the look from the outside and that we drove by it to get to another Greek spot. I'm glad we did. Everything from Service, Food and Wine was amazing!

    Been her a few times and each time it is great. Food never disappoints, and service is the best. Whipped feta, while it is a bit spicy, and green hummus are excellent appetizers. Greek salad is delicious and has the best tasting tomatoes. Highly recommend for dinner or drinks and appetizers.

    The restaurant is beautiful from the outside (it's why we chose the restaurant), and the interior design doesn't disappoint either. It made for a beautiful setting for a well prepared meal. Greek food can be risky with unique flavors, but Thasos managed to offer creative dishes that satisfied the tastes of all members of our party. Prices were reasonable, service was good...an overall positive experience.

    We've been to this lovely family owned restaurant on several occasions. The food served is always fresh and the service is great. In addition to their regular menu, they offer a special menu that changes regularly. We've been to many Greek restaurants in the tri-county area, Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach, and oftentimes the food is a bit greasy. The food at Thasos is cooked perfectly and the natural ingredients can each be tasted as opposed to the greasy food we've had at other Greek restaurants. The restaurant is also a great place for group celebrations as they have a few areas in the restaurant that can cater to larger groups. Additionally, the restaurant decor is very chic. We're looking forward to dining at Thasos again soon!!

    Finally a place with contemporary European food. In europe you would have to wait a week to get a reservation in this place. Here, well, you can enjoy it whenever you want. Ask for the mediterranean sea bass.

    Took my wife and 6 others for a celebration meal. Food was Good, service was good, food took a long time to get out of the kitchen. Octopus was a little too fishy tasting for me. Prices were fair. Noise level was high, but because we were a big group, it didn't matter to me. It's a group place, not a quite romantic venue. Also kind of hard to get into the parking lot. Open table booking is fantastic.

    DELICIOUS! The watermelon/feta salad with balsamic glaze was amazing. My boyfriend and I could not get over it. The grilled octopus was good, but nothing to write home about. Lamb chops were perfect as was the panna cotta we had for dessert. The ambiance is trendy, and while our server was good, we noticed a disconnect with management and service team. Do not let your customers see that you are upset, or scolding anyone.

    Couldn't let Greak Islands Taverna maintain their complete dominance on Greek food. Now there's a choice. Ok people! Would you like to make a reservation and not rush to stand on a long line? Would you like free valet parking? Would you like an owner who is friendly? Would you like absolutely comparable food at reasonable prices? Go to Thasos, give it a try, you won't be disappointed!

    The food was great. Bar service was a little slow despite the restaurant being nearly empty. Our waiter was not all that familiar with the menu. The portions are very generous. We probably ordered too much food. But, I love seeing the fresh fish on display. Wine list very disappointing, especially Greek wines. will go back. The booths are difficult for short people, so we moved to accommodate one person in our party. not rushed. it was a very leisurely dinner.

    Had a great meal. Well prepared and presented Greek dishes, not the usual run-of-the meal fast food style Greek found at most places. A unique compilation of appetizers, salads, small plates, entrees and desserts at a variety of prices. Prices are reasonable for quality and quantity. Service is attentive but not intrusive If you like noise, sit inside; if you want to share conversation sit in their outside area (air conditioned) and enjoy the quieter atmosphere.

    Once again, we had a great meal at Thasos! This time, we opted for small plates. We had the green chickpea spread, octopus, lamb sausage, keftedes and orzo with feta and spinach. All were winners! Shared a piece of galactaboureko (sp?) for dessert. Drinks were a watermelon, vodka and ouzo combo and were perfect! Service was friendly and attentive.

    We have dined here several times. Each time the food is very good- the appetizers and small plates are typically more interesting and tastier than the entrees. The service, however, is typically inattentive. This has been our experience every time we have dined at Thasos. The dishes are fresh and interesting. The restaurant itself is very noisy- even in the much slower summer months it was almost impossible to hear anyone who was not seated directly across the table.

    I love this restaurant! I am very particular when it comes to dinning out. I find the food very fresh and delicious.... I love the all white decor and the servers are friendly and knowledgable. I love the green chickpeas and pita bread. The muscles are a hit with our entire family. I usually do not eat dessert but I make that an exception because they are well worth the calories. I would say this is one of my top picks!

    We enjoyed our cocktails, food and wine at this restaurant. Our server was a bit overbearing but nice. Unfortunately, if you are trying to access this place from A1A, you need to know the secret route of cutting through the nearby Hess station. After driving around for a while, we ended up parking the car in a place near the restaurant that we weren't sure was legal, so we asked the valet to go find the car and move it. 15 minutes later, we asked the hostess to make sure they found it and they had not (not sure the valet even bothered to look). So my husband had to get up from his meal, go fetch the car, and drive in a circuitous route to get it to the parking lot. Unfortunately, this colored our entire experience. Can't recommend.
