Restaurant 17 Ratings and Reviews
Decided to try Restaurant 17 based on their recent review as top restaurant in the Upstate. The food was wonderful. Wish I been hungrier but the small plates were filling and I will order from their mains the next time I am there. Wine choices and craft cocktails were excellent and their beer list, though not long, had some very good choices.
My only complaint would be that the dining room had a cold "feel" so we decided to sit in the bar where the service was outstanding. We will definitely be going back!!
The food at Restaurant 17 is fantastic. If it were just up to the food, I would go back often. The problem lies in the service. The waitstaff is very nice, but the knowledge of the menu is below par. When asked simple questions, the server could not answer them, such as, “What type of vodka do you have?” or “What cut is the venison that is featured on the menu?”.
We sat upstairs and if we asked a question that required an answer of the kitchen staff, the server would just stand there and say that she would have to go down to ask the kitchen, but she would never go.
Overall the service was lacking polish for the caliber restaurant that I believe Restaurant 17 is striving for. I would say to them, go back in history a few years to Devereaux’s in downtown Greenville and take a lesson in proper waitstaff training and execution.
Overall very nice restaurant and staff. However the halibut made me sick within 15 min of leaving the restaurant.
My boyfriend's meal was great.
Not saying I won't return as I know seafood can be risky..had to be the halibut though!!
It was the only item we did not share.
So excited to have found this gem of a restaurant! We happened to go for our first visit during Greenville's Restaurant Week. So glad it was on that list because this place wasn't on our radar. My husband and I did a four course dinner with a wine flight pairing. WOW! Our favorites were the Octopus Pappardelle with Citrus and the Wild Boar Ragout. But everything was outstanding. They use locally sourced ingredients that are top notch. Menu changes frequently with the seasons. It's well worth the drive--but make sure you make reservations. The view of the mountains was lovely and as a bonus, when we left and looked up, the stars were amazing. Far enough out of the city so there's no light pollution. Superb dining experience! Look forward to our next visit.
Even though the power went out in the area just as we were finishing our dinner it was still a great time...even in emergency lighting. Great menu for Restaurant Week and an opportunity to try some new dishes and of course, the deserts were awesome as well!
I was very disappointed in my dinner there and in the atmosphere. This was a special occasion for our family and nothing about the interior dining area said upscale. We were seated right outside the swinging doors of the kitchen and in the path of the setting sun (no window treatments to mitigate this), so several of us had to keep moving around the (round) table to get out of the blinding sunlight. The menu was extremely pricey, but food did not warrant the cost. When I called earlier to ask for a nice table location (quiet, specifically) for the evening, I got a very unprofessional and lackluster response. The grounds outside are lovely, but the interior was unappealing. I wish I could give a better report, but it was an unfortunate choice and I will not return. I'm giving a Fair rather than Poor rating because three people in our party had the ribeye and enjoyed it.
Seated outdoors by the pool, under the ceiling fans with the off in the distant mountains as my view, I enjoyed a lovely meal. I chose the Nashville Chicken with the potatoes as my side. My server did warn me it was quite spicy, but I was glad I went for it. Delicious! The special butter served with the bread service was yummy! My glass of Bordeaux, suggested by the server, was very smooth and enjoyable. I finished off with the peach ice cream dessert and it was delicious as well. All in all, a lovely experience. I will return.
As always, 17 is great! The menu was new this week with some fantastic new choices.
This was the first time I had trouble deciding what to order as there was several I really wanted to try including a couple fish dishes that sounded awesome. I settled on the Venison and it was outstanding....I'm glad I make good decisions! :)
