A word from Market 17
Market 17 is proud to be serving delicious, creative dishes that are literally from the farm right to the tables of our diners. We call this "wine country cuisine" because the emphasis is on fresh, clean food from top purveyors along with an abundant wine list.

For the more adventurous diner, Market 17 offers 'dining in the dark'. It is our chefs table in a private room that allows a new way to experience food. Once your sight is turned off, all the other senses are heightened. It's a fun and unique experience to enjoy our food. (Due to limited seating, reservations for dining in the dark can be requested via open table notes but are not guaranteed. Please call 954.835.5507 to confirm dining in the dark reservation requests.)

Our menu will change daily and we'll always offer amazing tasting menus for you to sample what the chef has created. Come and experience for yourself what all the buzz is about!

    By the time that I noticed the table next to us had eaten and left before our food was delivered to us, the manager came out to apologize. The food was excellent, but our server was slow in bringing out our bread and then, of course, our food was delayed. The table next to us came in after we did and received a far better level of service. Perhaps they were locals and we were only tourists! However, we frequently stay at the Ritz Carlton and will be back in FLL in November. They gave us a free dessert which I did not need and apologized again. So, we left feeling like they had tried to correct the situation. The food was very good or we would have been very unhappy! To me dessert cannot replace poor service.

    The food was very good. I enjoyed two of the "tasting" portions, but my husband and son decided to have one entree. The cured meats and cheeses were delicious. Try the chocolate chipotle chicken sausage. So yummy. The service was very good, tiny things like clearing the plates a little sooner could be improved. Aside from that our server was courteous, helped us with the menu, and polite. The entire team pitched in, so no one gave the impression of "it's not my table." The value wasn't quite there, which is why everything was dropped one star.

    Very nice farm to table foodstuffs and executions with just the right amount of creativity and edge without losing the integrity of what you are eating. Absolutely outstanding wine list---artisan producers, detailed and comprehensive. Authentic, non industrial wines to go with authentic non commercial food. What more could you ask for if authenticity is important to you? My wife and I absolutely loved it.

    We actually had reservations for dinner but were done with our day early and arrived at 5:30 in time for a popular happy hour where drinks and apps are 1/2 price. Great bar tenders and a nice selection of apps including cheeses and fish collars (look it up). My date had a small plate and they didn't score well with the quinoa and thought she had better ceviche elsewhere, but enjoyed the happy hour experience. The cobia collar tasted as if the fish had just been pulled form the ocean. Will definitely return to catch dinner.

    I have travelled and dined all around but when I want to really treat myself I always go back to Market 17. This has to be the best restaurant I know. Everything is above standards and always beyond expectations. From the minute you walk in, the sleek decor is very tasteful and will suit every occasion from a romantic dinner, celebration with friends or business diner. The staff is warm and welcoming and they will remember your name. The local seasonal market food is to die for!!! Last night we had the butter squash Gnocchi with beef cheek as an appetizer OMG!!! For the wine lover Kirsta has to be the best sommelier I have met. They have an impressive wine list with lots of private imports. In one word this place is AMAZING

    Truly a spectacular meal. Incredible wine list. Terrific, if slightly snooty, service. I have eaten at great restaurants around the world, and most of the great ones in Miami-Dade, where I live. This place is on par with them. Finishes in the restaurant are OK. Strange location in a worn out strip mall. But what a meal, and what a wine list!

    Best meal I've had in Ft. Lauderdale! They cure their own meats for their excellent charcuterie platter. I strongly recommend the antelope hot dog. My antelope entree was tender, juicy and cooked a perfect medium rare. My girlfriend loved her grouper. Everything was so good that despite being full, we shared a dessert. We were glad we did as it didn't disappoint despite our now very high expectations.

I made the reservation online based on a referral from a friend. Upon arriving, we were greeted and seated promptly. Immediately, we were pleasantly impressed with the ambiance-beautiful decor and tranquil. Our server "Johnny" was exceptional and made our evening very special. We had the Pan Seared Red Snapper and the Mediterranean Spiced Grilled Cobia with delicious drinks FROM THE HEART Organic Vodka, Passion Fruit Nectar, Blood Orange Juice,Elderflower Liqueur, Fresh Lime Juice ----perfect! Our evening couldn't have been more divine! We'll be back soon!!!

    The food at Market 17 was wonderful. If we lived in the Fort Lauderdale area, I'm certain we'd go there often. I had the antelope, medium rare, delicious! My husband had the chicken, which he enjoyed. We both ordered salads, kale and the bacon spinach. Both were excellent. Ambience was nice and quiet, a little dark. But, if we are ever in the area, we will absolutely go again.

    Absolutely loved this place. I took my girlfriend for her birthday and we both absolutely enjoyed everything we both ordered. First time I see a place offer a tasting size and a full size version of each entree. I loved that because it allows you to sample more entrees. The "tasting" size is a full meal if you're counting calories. I asked for 2 tasting size entrees and found that to be a lot of food.. and I am a big guy. Highly recommend this place .. We will definitely be back soon.

It was lovely to taste several entrees only to end up ordering the whole orders. It was a rather quiet night and was romantic ...our waiter was knowledgeable and extremely pleasant.

    This place is hands down my favorite dining experience in Broward County. From the ambiance to the wine list and, oh yeah the FOOD. Wow the food is the most interesting presentation I have seen in a while, all farm to table local organic products. The chef does a wonderful job of creating a variety of daily dishes that will arouse your tastes buds. The combination of flavors is masterfully done. The service is very professional and not overly chatty, perfect for an Anniverssary celebration. You can try normal portion sizes or try chef's tasting samples of different dishes( I recommend doing that) for half the price. Speaking of which the prices, although not cheap, are very reasonable for the quality of the food.

    One nice thing about this restaurant is they offer 3oz glasses of wine as well as normal 6oz glasses. So I was able to taste 5 wines thru the course of the meal, which was fun as I worked my way thru a starter and a main course. They also offer half-size main dishes, which allows one to stay trim or to sample more stuff!

    We went here to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. The first table where we were seated was next to a large group that was getting louder as the wine flowed - we thought about asking to move, but before we could, the manager came to us and asked if we would like to move. We did and it was much more pleasant. Wes our server was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and very attentive. The food was excellent - in particular, the beef cheek appetizer, the Duck Confit, the Key West Shrimp entrée and the Wahoo entrée. Wonderful experience! Expensive - but worth it given the event we were celebrating!
