Restaurant 17 Ratings and Reviews
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! :)
Inside a/c setting way too cold! Food cooled off before it was half done. Small plates better than large plates. Waffle in chicken and waffle too dry, and not enough syrup. Creative menu. Clean nice restrooms. Ambiance a little stark, but nice mountain view...covered outdoor seating option nice.
17 is a place we frequent quite often (I'm a bit biased as the pastry chef is my step daughter) and are never disappointed. They use local ingredients and always have a very creative and delicious menu and of course the desserts are outstanding as well. If the Peach Cheesecake is on the menu, get it! Best cheesecake I've ever had! Nick Graves, the head chef, is extremely talented and has the skills to blend food combinations that you'll be impressed with. The scenic views and outdoor dining along with a very friendly and knowledgeable staff are just a bonus while enjoying a great dinner. Go, try, enjoy!
The waiter was not knowledgeable of the menu. Instead, he had to refer to notes.
The menu is limited.
The food was acceptable, but not remarkably tasty.
We waited 25 minutes after we finished the meal for the waiter to appear, and we had to ask for the check.
Restaurant 17 never disappoints! We went for their summer feature: Tuesday paella in the courtyard. It was fabulous with two freshly made paellas offered: traditional seafood and a southern themed paella with fried chicken. The night was perfect for al fresco dining in the gorgeous courtyard. We had a wonderful time!
Took guests from out of town. Very disappointing. The server was not attentive. Cocktails sat on the bar for a while before being served to the table. The ladies ordered the short rib lasagna after hearing the description of having a layer of short rib on top as well as in the lasagna. We were hard pressed to find ANY beef, more of just a vegetable lasagna with a hefty price. My husband ordered the chicken and waffles. The waffle was so hard, even a knife couldn't cut it. When our server finally returned, we told her and she said she would let someone know and try to compensate. That never happened. As we were leaving, the host asked if we enjoyed dinner, so I told him the issues we had. He did go and get the owner, who approached us with apologies and took our information in order to compensate by removing a couple of entrees from our bill. We have not heard anything from him. Will not return and spreading the word.
My wife and I and occasionally with some friends, eat there regularly and it never disappoints. The menu is creatively constructed to appeal to a wide variety of tastes with local ingredients to enjoy in an atmosphere that is pleasant with mountain views to enjoy while dining. Outdoor dining is also available and there is a great patio with a calming water feature to relax on and partake in some of the best desserts around. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed!
