Diner Reviews
  • "The food is fairly good but the waiter did not accommodate a minor special request or answer questions knowledgeably about the food. The swiss chard was inedibly salty and the "lump" crab cake was disappointing--very small, bready and dry. The best thing about Thyme is the atmosphere and view."

  • "4:30 reservation. Arrived late, sat at 4:50. Only guests until 6:00. Quiet. Staff attentive. Food excellent. Met my girlfriend for a pre-weekend night out. Beautiful dining room with nice view of the pond and its resident ducks. Easy to get to. The prix fixe menu had a wonderful selection of meats chicken and fish as well as interesting starters (baked brie with apples). Shrimp and scallops for me, Hangar steak for her. Well prepared and very tasty. Courses were nicely spaced so every taste was savored. Because we started early we were able to linger after our meal with no rushing out the door from the staff. I'd go back to Thyme in a minute!"

  • "Great place, great food, wonderful staff, nice ambience, nice view of the pond , but the lack of sound deadening on the ceiling leads to having to almost yell to hear the person across from you. All it needs is a small, but what could be game-changing fix! Despite that, I'd still give it another shot, albeit maybe for lunch, on a weekday to keep the noise level to a small jet plane!"

  • "There was a private party in the main dining room, so we were seated upstairs. Not the prettiest room! The servers were running around because the kitchen was downstairs! Our server was not that pleasant. The food though was very good. When we asked for a second VERY SMALL roll, we did not feel as though they were thrilled by our request ."

  • "There was no one there for lunch yet you got the feeling that the waiter was in a rush to get rid of you.we weren't settled in our seats that he wanted to take our drink orders, and it continued throughout our lunch.as soon as we started a conversation the waiter was there asking how our salads was,how the food how is everything............on and on. The other very annoying thing is that the seats are so close to each other that the waiting staff constantly bumps into you seat...."

  • "Thyme is a cozy gem in the village of Roslyn. The dining room is a relaxed environment that sets the tone for an enjoyable dining experience. I had the seafood paella piled high with clams, mussels, and large shrimp over a delectable saffron risotto. My only disappointment was that there was not enough risotto. The beet salad was delicious. The dining room did become very noisy as it filled up. I recommend coming early if you prefer a more quiet atmosphere."

  • "We have dined at Thyme dinner and loved it. Our waiter suggested the Sunday brunch. It too was fabulous. My eggs benedict were delicious. Instead of an english muffin they were on a potato croquette. My husband omelette was also quite good. Surprisingly the complimentary bloody marys were also very tasty and substantial. This is a lovely but small establishment so with most tables filled the noise level was rather loud. Still I would highly recommend this restaurant as the food and service is superb!"

  • "we think Luis is the best waiter ever. he is always on top of everything and very helpful. nice touch having music of fri evenings but it is hard to hear in the dining room but great for the people hanging out at the bar. we also felt that the singer could dress a little neater. his clothes looked so wrinkled like he might have slept in them for two days. normally i would not even think about it but these were really bad. (just our opinion) it takes away from the ambiance of the music and looks like you took him in off the street."

  • "Always enjoy ourselves. The martini's and sangria are excellent. They made some nice additions to the Prix Fixe menu, although at + $. Started with the mixed greens (the endive/fugi is now +$) and the mussels in white wine appetizers. Very tasty. The main of seared sea scallops & grilled jumbo shrimp w/grilled asparagus over parsnip puree was a nice blend of flavors. Looking forward to seasonal berries in the new fruit plate dessert. The apple tart, excellent. Luis is always on his game for attentive service and allowing time to dine. The view of Roslyn pond beautiful in any season. Can do without the valet parking. Lot in town instead. Go early as it can get noisy."

  • "Thyme is a wonderful little restaurant. We have been to Thyme many times and have never been disappointed. Often the food is simply great. Other times it's just very good, but never disappointing. We love the love the live music by the bar area which is played at just the right volume-- never too loud. The valet parking is very convenient since parking can be challenging nearby on weekends. The lovely view of the Roslyn pond through the big picture windows is a great plus. Sometimes the restaurant is so busy that the servers seem rushed and a little defensive unfortunately."

  • "Great brunch, however not if you have children in your party. The portions are large & it would have been perfect if we could have shared one between the two 7 year olds that were with us but that is not allowed. The restaurant policy is no sharing even for children & there is no children's menu so you pay the same price as an adult. Not a great policy, & therefore not a kid friendly place for any meal, too bad. The brunch menu has a interesting selection of choices & the portions are quite large. To start you are offered a choice of either a Bloody Mary, mimosa, bilini, or juice, however coffee is extra. When crowed it can get very loud as it was."

  • "I really like the food and the service at Thyme. Have been there 3 times for lunch and it was lovely! Last Friday we were 2 couples for dinner and although we all enjoyed our dishes we did not enjoy how loud it was!! We sat downstairs, the place was pretty crowded and we could not have a conversation without having to shout (and adding to the noise)."

  • "A GREAT FIND We visited Thyme for the first time this past weekend. We were interested in the Pre-Fixe dinner package. The food was fabulous and the service impeccable. My husband had a pear martini that was perfectly chilled and delicious. Our server Scott was not only knowledgable but personable and attentive. The food was excellent. I had the butternut squash ravioli for an appetizer and the baby lamb chops with root vegetables- excellent! We definitely will be visiting Thyme again."

  • "We have made Thyme our go-to restaurant for several special occasions. It is close to home, and we love the food. From now on, I will start requesting a better table. I have never been seated by the window, and sitting in the upstairs room makes the experience seem very pedestrian. With that said, the service and food is reliably good. Our New Year's Eve dinner was tasty, and we did not feel rushed. I just wish I knew the secret to the nicer tables!"

  • "We had a great experience. We were catching up with friends and were seated at a table that had a view of the duck pond. One of our diners had a food restrictions and the restaurant made appropriate adaptations and suggested dishes to meet her needs. After dinner we had a few drinks in the bar, which was filled but the noise level was moderate. In addition, there was live music which added to the ambiance. Our friends had never heard of the restaurant before but said that it was one of their most enjoyable dining experiences in the area. We will definitely be back!"
