Wild Thyme is located in the Atlantic Hotel/Spa and might be overlooked because it's a 'hotel restaurant' But the food is really quite good and service is first rate - friendly, professional etc. There are also some interesting architectural features (the recessed wood ceiling in the main room is a marvel of workmanship).

Vincent was our waiter for the second time. Mark the manager came and made us feel very welcome. The food was great! The drinks were great! We will for sure be back!

Made a reservation for 7:00 inside because it was raining. When we got there a wedding had taken over the restaurant because of the weather. Not a problem, we sat outside on the covered porch.

I had the spaghetti squash with the bolognese sauce; it was delicious. Large portion, more than I could eat. My husband had the salmon, which he loved. Shrimp cocktail appetizer was very good as well. Definitely would come back.

We had a 6:45 pm reservation. Upon arrival we found that a wedding had taken over the restaurant due to inclement weather. They sat us in the lobby. You would have thought that the hotel would have had different alternate arrangements. And the food was just ok. Wouldn’t go back.

It was ok not great. Overcooked my wife’s steak & lobster., they did fix it but the reason they gave was they just brought someone else’s food.

The initial greeting by our server was non-existent. In fact we thought she was just going around filling waters b/c she didn’t introduce herself. Then we waited 45-55min for our (3) salads, and when they finally arrived the steak (steak salad) was cold and well over cooked.

Desert was fun and tasty, but we won’t be back. Not worth it.

Beautiful Oceanfront setting with an eclectic menu and attentive service. Wide selection of small plates and shareables as well as large plates. We both ordered fish and it was fresh and well prepared. Shareable octopus was outstanding. Finally found a new place to eat on the beach

Worst brunch ever. First impression walking in was that there were very few choices of food items for a Sunday oceanfront brunch. We arrived at noon and I asked the hostess if we were too late and if they had already started closing down, she said no. One choice of salad consisting of a bowl of wilted greens with very standard toppings of shredded carrots, dry cucumber, tomato and mushroom with ranch dressing. There was a carving turkey that my husband had that was very burnt on the outside but it was raw and still bloody on the inside. There were mussels that were overcooked and dry and very bland. I ordered eggs Benedict from the sample menu and I asked for smoked salmon instead of sausage because I don’t eat meat and there were no seafood choices than the dry mussels. They were able to accommodate that request. It had an “our version of hollandaise sauce“ that looked and tasted nothing like a hollandaise sauce, and had no taste at all. They had chicken and waffles, pancakes, and French toast but I could’ve gone to IHOP for that. The salt and pepper shakers on our table were dirty with old food grime on them and rusty. However, the view was spectacular and the staff were very friendly.

Not as good as our previous visit. Conch fritters were too well done and hard to find the conch. The eggplant stack was burnt so the tase of eggplant was diminished by the over cooking. Maybe a bad night. We will try once more because we really enjoyed our first visit.

We live in the area but have not been to the Atlantic Hotel since the new restaurant opened. We finally decided to try Wild Thyme.

It did not disappoint. They offered the Ft Lauderdale Summer dinner menu but we opted for Small Plate Dining so we could taste a few of the creative selections. We had mashed cauliflower with shrimp, the eggplant stack, and conch fritters. Each dish was YUMMY!

Our service was great! Jake, our waiter, was attentive and efficient. The manager approached our table as well as the hostess to ensure that we were pleased. The personal attention was very nice. It appeared that they really want to see you return.

The view of the ocean is beautiful from the window or patio seating. We can't wait to return.

Our server was excellent. She was pleasant and very accommodating. However, the food was barely satisfactory. Everything was cold and really nothing was very tasty. Wasn’t bad but definitely not very good n not much variety. We wouldn’t go back again.

Very slow to get waited on. Once waiter came was very friendly and checked back several times , but could have been more. Food very good. Maybe a little more training of staff, as this is slow time of year, and not that busy. I think it would be good idea to appeal to your locals, since we are here year round!

It was a wonderful dinner for 9 people to celebrate a big birthday. Except for having to confirm the reservation 3 times it all went well. The menu was varied with something for every appetite! The complimentary dessert plate for the birthday girl was really spectacular!
Service was excellent. Would definitely go again!

The property is on a beautiful setting across from the beach it was a perfect evening for an outside meal.
The restaurant month menu was good the food was good the surface anymore in a lot of these places leaves a lot to be desired.

Although the gentleman who waited on us was very cheerful and very nice at no time did he asked us if we wanted a drink.
And with the last bite of the desert he asked if we wanted coffee. He rarely came back and we had to ask for a refill of water.
This wouldn't be a deal-breaker for me I definitely go back and recommend it I do recommend that if a staff member is reading the review they need to take the time to train their staff with a little bit of training it would have been a different experience

We had a great time. Lisa was our server and she was on top of everything. The food was great and the rustic feel of the place provided a great energy. My only negative was when we went to the bar after our brunch for a last drink and they allowed a guy to drink at the bar who wasn't wearing a shirt. At the urging of my wife I did not say anything, but the hotel and restaurant are first rate and I would have thought a manager would have asked him to put on a shirt. Other that that, I highly reccomend the restaurant and also Lisa, top notch service!

i took a friend to try the restaurant months prix fixe menu options. for $35 each, we ate the candied bacon, the mint hummus, the crispy fish basket, the roasted whole cauliflower, and the signature shake dessert for 2. i liked it just fine but my friend, a former chef, was less impressed. i could take my mother to try more of the menu later.

Pretty awful experience overall. Our waiter was rarely to be found. We literally didn’t see him for 45 minutes. No incentive for him to do well as the 18% gratuity was included.

I ordered the paella which was essentially a salt shaker with seafood and rice. The short ribs were good. And the philly lobster and steak was the only saving grace.

We’ve been to this location through the three iterations of this restaurant. This is the worst iteration. Sucks that we are local and this is what we get, but worse for our out of town guests. We won’t be back.

The food was below average. Filet mignon comes covered in gravy- there’s no confidence in the steak! The server was amazing, the patio seating along the street was nice. All the orders on our table were dry and not tasty. Food price too high for below average food. Would not return here!

We started with the eggplant stack our friends had the oysters, both were good starters, The salmon had good taste maybe slightly over done. The squash bolognese was good, nice thick sauce. Our friends had the seafood cone the presentation was really neat came out in a long cone shaped wrap. The taste was excellent and we finished with the chocolate cake nice large piece easy to shere. We will definitely return a nice experience all around.
