Diner Reviews
  • "Three generations (grandma, mother and daughter) had to chance to enjoy a delicious Sunday dinner on the outside patio- at a wonderful placed corner table. Three course from prix fixe options were excellent and well sized portions. Desserts were amazing! Staff was respectful and attentive. Will definitely be back."

  • "This is a very nice place for dinner or brunch. The owner makes you feel comfortable, the bar scene was alive and the rooms were full or nearly so. The outdoor porch area was delightful on a Saturday night. The waitress was warm and friendly and engaging. All good. The snag was the fish entree- red napper. This is a delicate fish and it was simply overcook or precooked. Someone wasn't watching and it changed a very good evening to mediocre. A restaurant with a Greek foundation should always know how to cook fish. When the dryness was mentioned no offer was made to replace or adjust. Yes i would go back to see if this was a aberration. It has a lot going for it but food prep is a key to any good experience"

  • "Place is clean and neat, and old house in Roslyn with a view of the pond. The decor is somewhat dated, ladder back chairs and a shiny old fashioned bar. Staff welcoming and neat, wait and bar staff in black. Drinks at the bar ok. Only one sparkling wine by the glass - only btls of French champagne which is a shame. Dined on a small patio above the parking lot - not stunning but if you look over the cars you do see the pond. Wait staff friendly and attentive. 1 dinner roll served with tongs and only a small ramekin of butter. - I expected a bread basket. Food was plentiful. Lobster bisque was overly creamy and was a thick wintery serving. Tuna tasty if somewhat heavily seasoned. Wine list modest, Arrogant Frog Pinot pleasing."

  • "Great dinner. All dishes delicious. The salad, entree and desserts were fabulous. I plan to return!"
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "The food was great - unfortunately the ambience is not very cozy - too many waiters and buzz boys (with sour faces) squeezing between tables and almost knocking the fine food off your table. MeanWhile the guests are almost screaming at each other... A shame - I am sure the terrace is nice, though..."

  • "We have tried Thyme half a dozen times and they keep on getting better. This was our best outing there so far. The prices have edged up, but the improvement in food and the service have outpaced them. If you haven't been there in a while, you will be pleasantly surprised, as we were."

  • "Food very good, service good but it was deafening on the main level so the music was barely noticeable"
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "The room was incredibly loud. Unable to hold a conversation. I had a sore throat from screaming when I left. We finally gave up and ate in silence. I will never return."

  • "This restaurant had a great outdoor seating which was all taken up when we got there....I guess you have to ask for it when you are making the reservation. Overall, the food is better than anything else there. My husband and I usually order a bottle of wine but their wine list was not that great. The service was good and we would definitely go back....next time though, we will make sure to sit outside ."

  • "Love Thyme Restaurant but, very noisy. A musician was playing wonderful music; between the guests and the music - everyone had to talk very loudly to hear each other."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "We went for brunch here as we love their dinner options and have never been disappointed for those. However, even though the brunch selections were good, they were lacking in a bit of flavor. I would probably not return for brunch, but would for lunch or dinner."

  • "we had 7 ladies together to celebrate a birthday,we couldn't have picked a better spot something for everyone and no one was dissappointed"

  • "Don't really know what to say! We have been here before and had very good meals. But, this past Saturday night we went as a group of four. Each one of us ordered something different and each of us was raving how delicious our meal was! A definite restaurant we will be returning to again and again!"

  • "The front staff was so accommodating in finding a table with ample space for my crutches. The food was excellent. I am a vegan and my server was very helpful in ascertaining that anything I ordered was prepared according to my dietary observance. I only rated the food a four because my friend noted that her tuna steak was a bit dry. My sautéed spinach was perfectly prepared. It was no swimming in oil as so many other restaurants seve. The house special salad was delicious as was the portobello mushroom I ordered as my entree. I plan to done here more frequently."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Although the place was very quaint I found the food subpar. My husband ordered paella and it was mostly mussels. Ordered grilled calamari salad as appetizer, not much calamari, and my chickens was dry"
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "I have dined at the Thyme many times and my wish is to get a window table once. The place is small and they have squeezed tables to its maximum capacity. not realizing or not wanting to realize how uncomfortable it is for the customers & staff. They serve the food on these gigantic ,heavy dished were you can barely fit one let alone 2 of them. Because of the lack of space the wait staff constantly bumps into your chair which it is very annoying. he last time I dined there which was this past long weekend, there was a private event in he downstairs dinning room, so we were seated upstairs we did not have a water view but we had a wonderful attentive waiter, the food was good and I actually enjoyed the experience till the last 10 minutes.)"

  • "This spot is generally under radar in a vibrant Roslyn restaurant scene but shouldn't be. It's top notch. The setting is warm and pleasing (especially on the somewhat-tight balcony on a nice evening) and the food is excellent."

  • "Have been here before, so my nephew/wife were taking me out for my birthday. He let me choose the place. My lady friend thought this would be nice. The food was delicious as usual. I had the Salmon with salsa/tomato infusion. My lady friend had seered tuna with black grain, interesting. we had a portabello mushroom with balsamic reduction for an appetizer. My nephew and his wife had a 3 course prix fixe dinner. They said it was delicious. For dessert we ordered a key lime torte and a caramelized apple tart with coffee/cappuccino. the view of the Duck Pond was pretty and tranquil. All in all a terrific birthday dinner at a very attractive restaurant."

  • "I found this restaurant under waterside dining. We sat outside but, its a pond your overlooking, which is lovely, but before the pond is an unattractive parking lot. I wouldn't go there for dining on the water. The restauran itself was very nice, food was delicious. We were outside which was very quiet, inside was very noisy."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Our experience began with an upbeat server named Michael approaching us for our drink order. We were late as far the dining hours go and still waiting for our 4th person to arrive. Michael returned with our drinks, gave us a low down on specials, took an appetizer order and assured us that they would remain open until the final party member arrived. Our last arrival got to Thyme an hour and a half late. Personally, I am viciously allergic to allium (onion family), so preparing food for me is like a sculptor carving water. Tom the owner/chef delivered magnificently, crafting a tasty app and entree, rounded out with unique and delicious desserts. Needless to say, we kept the staff an hour beyond closing time, which they did cheerfully. A+++++"

  • "my son had the grilled chicken handroll which was basically a wrap cut in half. the only problem with it was it was open ended on both ends (unlike wraps which are folded over). so when you pick up one of the halves and bite into one end, stuff (chicken, avocado or the greens ) would fall from the other end. it was a good handroll, just a bit messy with the ingredients falling out."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "The ambiance, view, service and food were all top notch. The staff was especially helpful and attentive. I would only add that we ate out 4 times during this particular week and this was clearly our most expensive meal. In other words, the menu is a little pricey, but for special occasions, Thyme offers a nice dining experience."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We have had brunch at Thyme a number of times and have always enjoyed it. Father's Day brunch was much more expensive than the usual menu and not any different. I ordered the Eggs Benedict with crab cakes, served on a biscuit. The crab cakes were mushy and had no crab taste. They seemed to mostly be bread crumbs. The biscuit was equally mushy. The potatoes were just ok, not crisp or particularly flavorful. This was a failure of a dish!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Everything was lovely; especially on Father's Day which is usually a zoo. One thought though, for the price of the brunch I think a dessert should be included....or possibly either the cocktail or a dessert."

  • "Thyme is a wonderful place, good food, ambiance and service. We especially like it for brunch but also enjoy the lunches. Great in all aspects."

  • "We had a terrific meal at Thyme on our recent visit. We arrived early on a Friday, before 5 pm and sat outside on the deck overlooking the pond. We were almost the only ones there. We took advantage of their great prixe fixe special. My wife had the ceaser slaw appetizer with shaved brussel sprouts, I had the calimari. Both were excellent. She had the chicken entree and I had the sliced hanger steak -- again, both were wonderful. We finished up with selections from the dessert menu, which were a perfect ending. The service was first rate. We would highly recommend."

  • "Our party of four sat on the outside covered deck. It was a beautiful Sunday (Memorial Day weekend) afternoon and we enjoyed a non-hurried, brunch experience, with the backdrop of scenic pond views filled with reflections of surrounding homes. The service was very good (we're guessing CIA influenced). We were there for a while and never felt rushed. That is a unique attribute that is very inviting. We traveled there from Jackson Heights, Massapequa, and Medford and we will go back."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "as always the food and service is excellent. the sunday price fix was a little limited with way too many extra charges for certain items. if they call it price fix then only include the items that are included. for instance, duck was extra $7 etc etc."

  • "We've dined a number of times at Thyme, and have never been disappointed. The food is always well-prepared and tasty, the service excellent, and there always seems to be a good (and non-intrusive) guitarist-singer by the bar on Saturday nights. We've found the restaurant particularly convenient when attending concerts or events at Tilles Center at CW Post College (about a 10-minute drive east from Thyme). While public parking in Roslyn Village is somewhat limited, Thyme has valet parking in its own lot. There's also al fresco dining available on a back deck facing the duck pond, although one can see the pond through the large picture windows at the back of the restaurant. "

  • "The food at Thyme is excellent. I had the Paella, which was not true Paella, but was delicious nonetheless. However, it is so noisy that I couldn't eat there again. My husband and I were out for a rare date night and couldn't have a conversation. There was a musician in the bar area that no one in the dining room could hear. Kudos to the waiter, who got our orders correct, not sure how he heard our orders. All they need to do is install a new ceiling to improve the acoustics, not sure why they haven't done that. "

  • "I had never been to Thyme before Saturday's Mother's Day brunch but upon receiving my food, I immediately texted my boyfriend that he and I needed to make a date here. The food not only looked good but tasted great. My father picked the Bloody Mary with bacon as his drink. He was amused and also loved the taste! Overall great experience!"

    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "Despite good food and a creative menu, good service and attractive ambiance, it is difficult to recommend Thyme at a time when it might be busy, as the noise level, at least in the downstairs dining room, is high enough to be uncomfortable. Also, we started our meal with a very sharp and attentive waiter, but by the end of the night, he had literally disappeared with no word of farewell. Other servers picked up the slack, but, until they came to us, we didn't know who was responsible for our table when we wanted something."
