Restaurant 17 Ratings and Reviews
Excellent! Receptionist was very outgoing and attended me when the bar and restaurant where busy at the beginning of my visit.
I sat in the bar area with a incredible view of the blue ridge mountains.
My bartender was also very attentive and service was great!
The food at restaurant 17, captures innovative, from
The chef and his staff, there cooking comes from the heart enhancing the use of buying local!
Small plate offerings are awesome for those looking
For more of a culinary vibe and capturing a symphony of
Flavors from local and seasonal flavors, well done, the chefs sand box, it show cased the creativity ,of the day!
Dinner also was local dry aged rib eye, complimented with smoked baby potatoes and herbed cheese, and
A cool sauce reduction to finish.
Plating is genius!
Thank you all ...of restaurant 17, can't wait to return soon!
Very good food, changing menu, good choices for cocktail and wine. Six of us went, we shared the cheese plate, then two had scallops for appetizers, all of which was enjoyable. For entrees, one had catfish, three had prawns, very tasty and enjoyed by all. Two had had beef short ribs and faro, a small plate/appetizer option, but the dishes were enough for them. All really enjoyed the food, the service and the setting and would easily go back again. A little pricier than some other restaurants nearby, but very good food and a nice change of pace.
The location is beautiful albeit very remote, and the food was truly delicious. Unfortunately, our experience was marred by our server, "Haley" (as in the comet). Rarely to be seen, never to refill a wine glass, bread that shows up with the main course instead of the salad course, and completely unfamiliar with the menu (which resulted in a vegetarian getting pasta with sausage...also never noticed by Haley even though there was an obvious pile of it off to the side). Such a shame that we left with a bad taste...
Our second visit to R17 didn't live up to our first. The cuisine, and staff (attention/attitude) seemed a level below our previous visit.
We ordered "fresh" decaf coffee for after dinner and were served coffee that was tepid and week.
Not a "bad" experience, by any means, and we will return. Just wish there was more consistency here at R17
Restaurant was completely packed, so it was louder than usual. Food and service were exceptional as always. First time I have seen sheepshead from Florida on a seafood menu anywhere in our area, it was a nice surprise. Also had mussels, both selections were prepared well.
We have eaten at Restaurant 17 several times with several different Chefs heading the kitchen and we've enjoyed it each time. Prices are reasonable for the quality of meal and the location is just beautiful. Reservations are easy on the week days but not so much on the weekends. Menu changes often but we've never been disappointed.
We love Restaurant 17. It's not only the closest restaurant to my house, it is one of the best fine dining restaurants in #yeahTHATgreenville. Chef Nick Graves has transformed the menu into a wonderfully accessible, farm to table experience. You are not only dazzled by the food, you leave full. Great for special occasions, but also reasonable enough for everyday dining.
Our New Year's Celebration at R17 was very memorable with a Southern Savory Styled 4 course meal with flair . Our dessert included white chocolate "caviar" bubbles which were sweet with edible wild flowers. We loved it and done at R17 each visit in Greenville/Travelers Rest.
Well worth the drive up to Traveler's Rest.
Servings are abundant, especially the salad.
Smoked salmon plate was excellent.
Lamb pappardelle was quite fine even though the lamb was meatballed.
Intriguing wine list, stellar left overs from the previous Somm.
In all, a splendid meal. As good as any upscale restaurant on Main Street Greenville.
I will definitely return. Menu is seasonal.
As usual Restaurant 17 was another great and enjoyable experience both for the ambiance of what 17 has to offer and especially for the food that ended up in my belly! The wife and I usually go there once a season as they are always changing their menu and I'll be honest, this Winter menu has got to be the top on my list. We ordered the Persimmon & Apple Salad and Duckfat Brussel Sprouts as starters, what a wonderful experience for the taste buds, then my wife ordered the Sweet Potato Gnocchi as her small plate and of course me wanting meat, I ordered the Dry Aged Pork Chop, what a fantastic blend of flavors just exploding in your mouth during each bite! Like I said we love to go here and our winter trip this past weekend did not disappoint!
Food was delicious! The plating of my beet and salmon salad was awkward though. About 85% of my large dinner plate was bare because the salad was presented in a half moon shape along one side. It made my meal appear to be a comically small portion. Another issue was that I ordered a side dish of plain fries for my child, but paid for a $10 plate of truffle fries. A $10 side order of fries is a bit overpriced to say the least. I wish I had been forewarned. Otherwise, my food was delicious!
My hubs & I visited Greenville for a overnight getaway. Hotel Domestique was our pick for our stay, it was booked I decided to eat at their highly reviewed restaurant in Travelers Rest. The drive is over 30 mins w/ pretty views of the mtns. The property is stunning! Walking in however, is very different.
The entrance is underwhelming reminding you of a deli; due to a deli style counter to the right and a podium to the left. A guy in just jeans and a random t-shirt a few feet away to an empty dining room. After several minutes our server approached sweet & nervous, probably new? She could not recommend or answer questions on the menu. I ordered a cheese board. The cheese board -a wooden plank w/ dried cranberries & golden raisins scattered w/ 3 small mounds cheese, a blob of jam & a smear of something not described to us-No cheese knife My husband ordered osso bucco and responded saying it was, 'just ok'. I ordered a kale and mushroom dish. It arrived as a pasta bowl w/ the kale being unrecognizable in a heavy meaty tasting cream sauce. The pasta was less than al dante. and smelled strange, like smoked meat. I am a vegetarian so adventurous foods are good with me. I have never had to send food back. Maybe my taste buds but it was edible. I gladly paid for another dish the sweet potato gnocchi. It was also strange- seemed to be sweet potato mixed with a cheddar cheesy sauce at the bottom of an oval dish w/ mounds of marshmallow, sprinkled w/ spicy pecans. Effort at creative but flavors did not mesh, making it an awkward bite to swallow. I picked around to eat each part individually to avoid the combo of cheese & marshmallow.
In all the restaurant is making effort at modern/eclectic, it is just not molding together from the entrance to the new server to the broken flavors. I think this place has potential, a bit more culinary skill and finesse is needed to bring this place up from its confusing status. My favor part was the music - great taste!!!
This was our first visit to Restaurant 17. They had a very good opening cocktail called Sorry Mr. Jackson that was a nice start to the evening. We had the lamb and smoked faro, muscadine grapes and kale. The lamb was excellent. The faro, grapes and kale were quite smoky, a nice taste but perhaps a little too heavy on the smoke, which masked the grapes for me. The other dish we had was the catfish with crayfish etouffe; both were excellent, but I found it best to eat them separately, because the awesome and spicy etouffe overpowered the catfish when I ate them in the same bite. I love catfish and wanted to taste it as much as possible. The desserts we had were great. I had the peanut butter mousse, which was great, but different than what I was expecting. The peanut butter mousse was inside chocolate pillows and the pillows were served with brittle and a peanut butter powder. As I said, different than what I was expecting, but really good. I would order it again. My wife had flourless chocolate s'mores, which again had a unique presentation and was very good. The flourless cake was VERY rich. The decor was okay, nothing special and the prices were a little higher than I thought they should have been, but it was a really good meal. Because of the price, I will probably not go back as frequently as I would if they were somewhat lower, but it will definitely warrant a return trip in the future.
We have been to Restaurant 17 many times and have never been disappointed. The beautiful scenery, the amazing service, and always delicious food make it a must in Greenville. The restaurant is attached to a gorgeous boutique hotel in the mountains and has great views from its large windows. After dark, the restaurant is more dimly lit and provides a nice quiet atmosphere to enjoy dinner and company. On this trip, we had the sweet potato gnocchi which was possibly one of our favorite appetizers that we have ever had here. It was sweet, buttery, and a little different than one would expect since the gnocchi itself was pan fried and a bit crunchy. We shared the beef and lamb entrees. Both tasted delicious, but the beef was the winner of the two with a root vegetable side that had a definite smokey flavor. The dessert, which is always changing it seems, was decadent as well. The service is always excellent with the waiters and waitresses who are always prepared to help and elaborate on menu items as well as cocktails and wine pairings. Looking forward to being back in the area and back at Restaurant 17.
It was a beautiful fall evening. We were pleasantly surprised to find ourselves dining outside looking at the colors on display on the mountainside in front of us. My husband and I shared a salad and a small plate with a wonderful glass of wine prior to our entree of swordfish and locally raised beef topping it off with a gorgeous and tasty dessert.
All the dishes were visually appealing and full of flavor. We then took a stroll over to the Hotel Domestique. What a stunning property!
You feel as if you have truly "gotten away....."
We got a table outside and the view and atmosphere was amazing. Our waiter suggested sharing a salad and sharing the artisan cheese board which both were very good. I had the beef entree with the bread pudding which was delicious . My wife had the rock shrimp risotto which she said was very good. We shared the carrot cake which was so good.We are originally from Pa.and so are the husband and wife team who manage the Hotel so it was great to meet and talk with them.The service was excellent and we would definitely return and maybe have a glass of wine and try a small plate.
This is not an easy place to find if coming from US 25 North. The GSP gave very confusing directions, and it was necessary to make a U-turn on US 25, then come in from the south. The view from the dining area was spectacular, the server very pleasant, and the food very good. It was a very slow Wednesday evening per number of people there, so was easy for conversation. I am not sure what it would be at a busy time. It is the type place that you would want to save for a special occasion, as my wife and I shared an entrée, desert and salad, plus she had one glass of wine. The bill, including tip was 76 dollars, so if you have big eaters or those interested in drinks as a part of the scenario, you had better come prepared for a hefty expense.
For us, it was an enjoyable evening, and we will consider going again.
