However, more light above each table would relieve the frustration endured while reading the menu. I have experienced subdued lighting before, in other restaurants, but at Market 17 it is carried to the point of absurdity.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place!Just what others have said: Great food, great service and a good place to take your date (or mom).5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBest restaurant in Sofl. ServiceBest restaurant in Sofl. Service & food were impeccable.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA Fabulous mealMy husband and I had a fabulous meal at Market 17. We ordered 2 appetizers and 2 entrees and shared both. Everything was cooked to perfection, delicious and beautifully presented. We finished it off by sharing the warm chocolate pudding (I think that's what it was called) and it was amazing. We will definitely be back!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. First time diningGreat food. First time dining at Market 17 and would definitely return.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMa little disappointedfood taste/flavors could improve..too much salt in some offerings.. the evening was saved by outstanding service and creative presentation.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightful ExperienceI booked a reservation for a friend's birthday. I was previously at Market 17 with a friend from out of town and her niece, who is gluten-free (I am not). That time I only had drinks but the bar was great. This time, we ate at the bar and it was terrific. The wine selection is extensive and the bartender (Kimmy) knowledgeable and friendly. The food was incredible...very tasty and well prepared. We had the cerviche for appetizer (outstanding). The staff accommodated my request for a birthday dessert. I have to say one thing: Kimmy is terrific...she not only is competent, she is interesting and personable....we will return to Market 17 just to have drinks with Kimmy at the bar! She is a wonderful ambassador for the Market 17!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was phenomenal, serviceFood was phenomenal, service was top-notch. This restaurant is a gem. Charcuterie is to die for.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dining experienceWe enjoyed our time at Market 17 for my mom's birthday. The menu was quite interesting; I like the fact that it changes daily. I enjoyed my Poussin(chicken). The black rice was also great. Overall, we had a great time. Last, but not least we loved our server, Diana!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMUnique experience and menu;Unique experience and menu; particularly the appetizer menu. Also excellent option to select two petit entrees for the cost of one regular - so you can mix things up.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAn exceptional experienceMarket 17 boasts a truly unique menu. Our server was very accommodating and was able to recommend wines to pair with our dinners as well as some of the more exceptional cocktails.

Price-wise the restaurant gives you excellent value for your money.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent placeSuperior service and excellent fresh food! Very pleased!

Our favorite restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale. The pacing of our dinner was just right and we enjoyed the wine very much as it was perfectly paired with our meal. A nice surprise piece of cake served for my wife's birthday. We only dine at Market 17 if Greg is our waiter. If you want the best service, ask for Greg!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMcontinues to improve...itcontinues to improve...it may be the best restaurant in fort lauderdale!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food. Nice vibeExcellent food. Nice vibe in the place. Highly recommend.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAWESOME RESTAURANT!! A MUST TRY!!We LOVED the restaurant!!! It was the first time any of us had been there (there were 7 of us) and EVERYONE LOVED the restaurant. From the ambiance to the food and drink everything was perfect!! Great server as well. I wish I could remember her name, but she was very knowledgable of the menu and was very sweet. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Market 17 to anyone looking for a great place in Fort Lauderdale that is unlike anywhere else in the city!!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Meal !!My wife and I went early on a Monday night & we just aboput had the whole place to ourselves. Our server, John, was very attentive to our questions & neeeds and did a great job, even showing us the infamous "dark room" before we left. Great by-the-glass wine selection although, they had run out of a unique Melbec that I wanted to try (not a big deal). The appetizer's were very good and we shared 3 of them, including the Civiche, which is a must try. The unique thing about this establishment is that you can try most of the main courses as a smaller plate, which I did with the Bison. It was very tender and cooked to perfection as ordered. For desert my wife had the basil & cucumber sorbet, which was very good as well as my creme brullete.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMNice surprise in an unusualNice surprise in an unusual location. We tried this restaurant because if its very good reviews and we will definitely visit again for the great experience.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat. Our waiter was excellentGreat. Our waiter was excellent as well as the greeters.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant is excellentThe restaurant is excellent with interesting features such as a dine in the dark prix fixe (we didn't try this but I'm sure it's fascinating). The food was well prepared and tasty. The portions were just right. The music in the background was much too loud but they were receptive and turned it down. Also the TV on in the bar area took away from the hip ambiance.
We enjoyed it overall.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMNice but to pricey!!!I thought the food was tasty and had a good presentstion
Presentation. My wife on the other hand thought the food was over priced and average at best.
I admit the food was small portions and over priced. Over all we had a romantic evening but dropped $180 when it should have been $1004/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!I received a gift certificate From Ryan Sistare for assistants I gave at the Birthday Party they had at the Ft. Lauderdale Fire and Safety Museum where I work.
This was the best evening I have had in quite awhile. Everyone was very nice. Our greeters and servers were, Itzel & Robin. Kudos to them. The Food was excellent. My companion choice for that evening was perfect. I thank you very much. We will recommend Market 17 to our friends, family and, visitors.

954-205-07264/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was one of the most delightfulThis was one of the most delightful meals I've had in a long time. First, LOVE the concept of farm fresh food, real food, that you know where it came from. Second, LOVE the option of having small portions for mains. Third, the food was impeccable. The combination of flavors was delicious and each dish provided a little surprise flavor or texture or visual. It was a stellar evening. We will definitely return even though we live an hour away.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMstaff and owners are verystaff and owners are very friendly. Service excellent. Tables are nicely set up, not too close together. Chef is always changing the menu into interesting combinations. Food is always excellent. One of our favorite places for dinner. Also, dining in the dark is a great deal of fun for a group.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMI love this place, what aI love this place, what a gem! Great food, great menu, beautiful interior. I loved the local beer selection, I tried the Florida Lager and loved it! Very cool that they tell you on the menu which Florida farm each food item originates. Our waitress was very good but I felt like she was trying to up-sell us into ordering more food. She seem adamant that we all order a personal appetizer and a large portion for the meal. My family and I are pretty light eaters and felt an appetizer for the table, a personal salad, and a petite entre was entirely enough food. I will definitely return.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best restaurantsOne of the best restaurants I have dined at in a long time.Outstanding food and service. On our visit to Ft.Lauderdale we dined twice at Market 17. Thats how much we enjoyed it.
Will go back the next time we are in town.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMTasting MenuThe six course food and wine tasting menu is a joy for foodies and a treat for a special occassion3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely wonderfulWhy don't more people cook like this in Fort Lauderdale? Seasonal, not you run of the mill proteins, thoughtful wine list. It's a hidden gem.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you love food, you must eat hereA most extraordinary dining experience. My husband has many dietary limitations & usually winds up with something quite bland and ordinary, but not here. Even his meal was scrumptious. Their dishes are masterpieces, creative and so flavorful. I shared a charcuterie platter with my son who is a major foodie. We were both ooing and aahing over our sausage choices. They were so light and amazingly delicious - I have never tasted anything like them. I love that they have a half portion option for the main course. That gives me the opportunity to enjoy more of their first courses.
It is definitely our favorite restaurant. We live in NY and have eaten at many wonderful restaurants in Manhattan. I can't think of a restaurant that tops Market 13/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAte here on Monday and returnedAte here on Monday and returned on Friday - menu changes daily so it was a whole new experience. There are half portions of the main dishes which works for my teenagers. Will be back when we return to Ft. Lauderdale.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe overall dining experienceThe overall dining experience was wonderful as usual. Our server, Rachel, was friendly and professional adding to an enjoyable evening.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMmarket 17 was awesome. Somarket 17 was awesome. So many places try to claim they are farm to table. This was the real deal. Fresh food, great service, wonderful atmosphere.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food at reasonable priceFood was very good, but they have a very limited menu since they said because they only use seasonal ingredients for their menu. if you do not see anything on the menu you like, then you are out of luck. Nice ambiance for a resturant in an commercial/office complex.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways AmazingOnce again, an amazing experience. Love this place.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFresh Food and Excellent ServiceThis was our first trip to Ft. Lauderdale, and booked Market 17 based on several reviews. We were not disappointed in any way, shape or form. It really is "farm-to-market" fresh, and staff was excellent both in knowledge and sense of urgency. It is a bit on the pricey side for a family of four, but really seems geared towards couples anyways. Nice touch: asked hostess to "call us a taxi" and she actually walked out to the main road (100 yards or so) and stood there to hail us a cab on a busy Saturday night. That's great service and we would return to the restaurant if we make another trip to FTL.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Best in Fort LauderdaleThis restaurant stands above all others in Fort Lauderdale. It is the only restaurant in town that could complete successfully in the New York, Chicago or San Francisco restaurant scenes.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMarket 17 is always a pleasureMarket 17 is always a pleasure to return to. In this case, the event was a Single Malt Scotch dinner with great pairings of good scotches and an outstanding menu of somewhat exotic plates. The venison was outstanding but the bison was absolutely unbeatable. Market 17 will continue to be one of my "go to" places for a guaranteed great dining experience.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome find!Menu changes daily which means fresh food prepared with creativity! This place will go into our restaurant rotation for sure! We are only here a week and we are Going to go back again before we leave town.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
