My husband and I entertained a friend here on a Monday evening. The food, location and ambience was absolutely perfect. In Covid times we appreciated seating on the outdoor porch. Mo, our server, was very busy but nonetheless very attentive to us. The Drunken Noodles Shrimp dish was delicious, with large, succulent shrimp atop penne pasta and just the right amount of vodka sauce - not too much or too little. When you go, do NOT skip dessert. The restaurant has a long-standing relationship with one of the finest bakers in South Florida (or anywhere). Both the bread pudding and the chocolate cake defy description.
All in all, our evening was one of the best we could have had, and we can't wait to return for another round. Thank you WIld Thyme!

We went for brunch with the gamy and dined indoors. The atmosphere was vibrant however spacious and conversation was not muted. Service was excellent and various individuals checked on us. The breakfast board was perfect as it had a wide variety of items that everyone enjoyed and the price was reasonable. Everyone enjoyed the overall experience and vowed to return at a later date

I ordered mahi mahi and it tasted like the frozen kind I buybat the grocery store. The potatoes had an old taste to them, roasted too long. Nothing tasted fresh. Would not recommend.

The food was mostly better than expected though my husband had skirt steak that was somewhat tough. There were 9 of us and service was great. Had a fun time!

The food was delicious, particularly the paella and the grilled octopus. The service was on the slow side, and it took quite awhile just to get water and cocktails. However, the server was very pleasant and professional.

Food was mediocre at best. And the place is loud inside. I suspect if we had an outdoor table it might have been a better experience but you guys have to improve the food . Too much competition along the beach to not have better food

The food, ambiance and service were excellent. We had a Filet and Lobster tail dinner with garlic mashed potatoes and onion straws. It was amazing. Steve was our server and he was outstanding. The manager also stopped by are table and was lovely. We would highly recommend The Wilde Thyme.

The view was gorgeous and the host was lovely. Our server however was very short and when he asked how my meal was which took over an hour to come out, I said my medium requested burger was well done and he just walked off. Anyway, I'm sure he doesn't care since 20% gratuity is added in. The brunch platter that was coming out looked amazing. Would maybe try again and make sure to get a different server.

We went for brunch and the menu was diverse with flexible mix and match including the grand “board “ that provided a variety of breakfast items for at least 2 individuals. I enjoyed the lobster-short rib sandwich which was delicious while my wife enjoyed the traditional pancakes,eggs,bacon etc. we can’t wait to return Our server and the general service was excellent and the outdoor dining experience with close up view of the beach and the general scene was a perfect complement to our experience. In addition complementary Valet parking was provided for a 2 hr period

The food was great the only reason I gave it a low rating is because we sat down and didn’t have anyone help for 20 min we had to tell the host to bring us a waitress. Then the waitress made us wait over an hour for food and kept forgetting to refill our bottomless unless we asked. She obviously forgot to put our order in because we kept seeing people get their food first that arrived way after us when we only ordered the board to share. Service was just 0/10. If I ever come back I will make sure not to get this waitress again.

This was a very awful dinner!! Cold conch fritters, 6 thin slices of cold meat for the table of 5pax, under cook potatoes, cheap frozen seafood in the paella. Completely over price and bad service.
Thanks for starting my year right Guys!

Food was excellent as was the service. We dined as part of the New Years Eve special/menu. The staff was responsive and prompt. The one minor negative was that the first couple courses came very fast almost on top of one another. Overall a great experience though.

My family and I ate here on our trip to Fort Lauderdale. As the Omicron variant was on the rise, we were concerned about indoor dining, so I was looking for places with outdoor dining. This place WOWED. The service was so attentive, and the food was out of this world. I recommend the Short Rib if you come here! We all left very stuffed and very happy. The waitress made a mistake on our bill, and to make up for it, gave us a dessert to go. Please go eat here!

The food was amazing for the price. Less expensive than a steakhouse however my filet mignon and lobster tail were as good if not better than most steakhouses. However thei menu has lots of other options. My wife’s seafood paella was delicious. Recommended highly.
