    the restaurant is beautifully decorated and is very pleasant to the eye....The white and turquoise decor makes you feel as if you are in the greek island of Mykonos....The service is courteous and pleasant and always trying to make your experience worthwhile ....The food is authentic Greek and based on George's(Te owner) mother's recipes and is quite delicious....I will be going back very often!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Had a spectacular seafood meal with one exception, lamb meatball appetizer. Octopus, mussels, Bronzino, calamari and Greek salad. Nice and generous pour of a Sauvignon blanc which paired well. Of course, 2 Greek desserts! Service was beyond exceptional!

    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.

    This was our second visit. Food, service and everything else was awesome. However the noise level this time was unbearable. My wife and I maybe said two words to one another. They should invest in some kind of sound absorbing panels.

    We have been to Thasos many times, most recently with a group of six. We shared small plates as a table, ordering more as we felt hungry. The food, decor, service and feeling all made for a fun, memorable evening.

    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.

    All the goodness of classic greek with modern upscale details and presentation. The setting is modern with traditional white greek feel. A few options for vegetarians and they are flexible with changes to menu items. The noise level is a little high but we were able to converse. Overall a very nice dining experience

    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!

    Terrible service that went from bad to worse...went on a Saturday evening when restaurant was far from crowded...appetizers arrived far ahead of cocktails which then arrived not as ordered...had to request more water...only two glasses filled for four...then....a 50 minute wait for entrees...waiter apologized..we asked to speak with manager who never bothered to come...we has ordered yellowtail...waiter said it would come as filet..it arrived with head and bones...sent it back...finally after check was paid waiter offered a glass of wine! Manager finally showed up and did little but be arrogant and unsympathetic...Luckily there are many other better options to dine at...so don't go here....

    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.

    Been wanting to visit this restaurant for some time. Food is excellent, service was great has a great ambitious. They valet your vehicle (not by choose) which I was not really happy about but that is their policy. All you have to do is give them a tip if you like as parking is free. The place is spotless and complete white with a few blue accents. Manager visited our table a few times to be sure everything was to our liking and the chef gave us a sample appetizer for free. We will visit this restaurant again as we enjoyed everything about it.

    We went here once before and enjoyed it but hadn't been back and I don't know why. The food was great and so is the atmosphere. We had a bunch of tapas and all were really good but our favorite were the zucchini chips. I also liked the goat cheese spread and the meatballs. We are not going to wait as long to come back next time.

    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 !
