  • Great food but ....
    Diner1
    Dined on 10/28/2013
    Had a very enjoyable meal with friends from out of town, but 3 factors detracted slightly from the experience. No complaints about the food or service, both were very good. However, the noise level was a bit too high, since the restaurant was full and there is not much in place for noise dampining. Also, we were a party of 3 and they squeezed us into a table for 2 which made it somewhat cramped. People don't always dine in even numbers so the restaurant needs to accomodate accordingly. Finally, the wine list needs some professional attention .... it is long enough, and has an appropriate array of price points, but the actual selections are only adequate (we had a bottle of white, and one of red ... both just o.k.).

    This isn't the first time to Table 17 but it might be my last. I can't fault the food. It was excellent. The Rainbow Trout and Halibut had delicious flavour combinations and so did the Kale Salad & Fresh Oyster. My only fault was that the servers were rather aloof and uninvolved. Even when the restaurant wasn't busy they were noticeably absent. I had to serve my own wine - really. We had mention when we made reservations it was a Birthday and there wasn't an knowledgement. So when we left I mention it to the Manager and he did say "yes" they knew about it, then he asked if we had dessert and I said "No" and he told me if we did they would have put a candle in it... now that's pretty lame! If you don't have service you have nothing!

    Sunday night, appreciated the prix fix menu and no corkage fee. Server responded beautifully when we three objected to the table for two at the door. First she promptly brought us complementary glasses of wine and then moved us to a larger table, still in the front room, which we preferred. Lower noise level in the first room allowed us to talk while we enjoyed the very good cuisine. The beet salad and chowder starters were most creative. The trout, the haddock and the steak met expectations. And the desserts, delicious. Thank you for a great affordable evening.

    this was our second time dining at Table 17 and we were equally pleased the second time around. we had a TravelZoo coupon for our meal, which included 2 apps, 2 mains and 2 sides. i loved my burrata salad and my husband really enjoyed his tartare. we each had a fish dish for the mains - my halibut was under-seasoned and my husband's fish was fine, not mind blowing. the sides were great - the potato mash with duck fat was lick the bowl delicious and the broccolini was FULL of flavour. we had some drinks as well and really enjoyed the Caribbean something or other with rum (Caribbean Orchard?) we were too stuffed to even consider dessert. will definitely be back!

  • Great Lamb & Burrata
    Daniel
    Dined on 9/24/2013
    Ordered the leg of lamb, burrata salad, and hot balls. The lamb was exceptional. The burrata dish had a lot of variety of flavours, including dabs of this almond (?) paste, highly recommend. Loved two of the hot balls, the lamb risotto one and the goat cheese/honey one. The third was ok. After dinner we shared a cheese plate, great selection of hard and soft cheeses and some honeycomb. Overall I very much recommend this place. It was quiet enough to have a conversation and staff were friendly. The only thing I found odd was that bread was given out one piece at a time by the server with tongs. We were given a basket with the cheese plate, would have been nice to have that at the beginning too.

    The food was spectacular. The service was extremely friendly but not over-the-top. The seating just slightly uncomfortable due to proximity of tables. The cost was a bit high (2 apps, 2 sides, 2 entrees, 1 bottle wine, good tip = $200)

    Dined on 9/8/2013
    Dined at Table 17 with my wife and another couple on Sunday. It was fine...but that's it. I had been looking forward to trying it for some time and was hoping for more than just "fine". Halibut was great, steaks were nothing special, appetizers and dessert were good but nothing really popped for any of us. Service was pleasant and friendly but quite slow. It appeared they were maybe one person down that night as it was full and the three people we saw out front could not keep up. Loved the view onto Queen Street though as they have big front windows so it was bright and everybody facing that direction had a nice view. Overall it was fine but we (wife and I) have no need to go back...lots out there to try. EC

    Great ambiance, nicely busy but not overcrowded on a Tuesday night. Our server was attentive if hard to hear at times for one of our party of 3. Food was excellent. Portion sizes were perfect - not oversized. Meat (duck, lamb, and steak) done to perfection. Food arrival was slow. We sat around 7:30, ordered by 7:45, mains came out 8:50. Apps somewhere in the middle. Menu size is appropriate for the size of the restaurant and quality - not massive but with 6+ choices for apps and mains. It's my 3rd visit and I have never been disappointed.

    So.... The ambiance at Table 17 is extraordinary. However, the service was really lacklustre. My server was completely disinterested in serving and, while polite, did the bear minimum required of his job. BTW....it was not a busy night and he had ample opportunity to engage and enhance the experience at the restaurant. In terms of the food, I ordered the halibut which was completely overcooked and hard. The broth was amazing but the fish was not really edible. The dessert - blueberry/lemon panacotta - was excellent but it came a little too late in the meal/experience. Anywho, good restaurant but not somewhere I will be eager to venture back to any time soon. For real.

    From the delicious food to the great service, this was a great dining experience. Our stuffed zucchini flower appetizer was soooo tasty and was a nice contrast to the charcuterie platter we also ordered. The mains were both healthy portions. I was stuffed at the end. Great atmosphere. Music on in the background was not too loud or distracting and helped with the ambiance.

    This was my third visit to table 17 and it was the busiest I've ever seen it. Service was quite on the sluggish side but our server was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Took at least 15 minutes after we seated for the server to come by to get our drink order, another 15 minutes for our wine and 30-40 minutes between first and second course. Food was yummy and very well presented - not a whole lot to choose from though. We left feeling like we should stop for a burger on the way home. Lastly, dinner for 3 with a bottle of wine and a couple cocktails was over $300. I'm not afraid to pay for a good meal but I was surprised when I got the bill. Of course we'll go back, but was just surprised by a few things this time around.

    5:30 pm res on Sunday. We are regular customers and the food has never disappointed. Our appetizers were very good but mains were very disappointing (a first for us!). We both ordered fish. I ordered the halibut ($5 surcharge) and my son ordered the trout. Both fish dishes were ridiculously overcooked! I informed the waitress and asked if there was a different chef in the kitchen. She said that the chef was away and she would inform the kitchen. We have been served at least a dozen times by the same server in the past 6 months. We were still charged an extra $5 for the Halibut (the money was not an issue, but given the fact that we are regular customers I was shocked). We still left our usual 25% tip but will be reluctant to return.

    Table 17 is usually reliable for its food and service. This night the service was really really slow for no apparent reason. But service was accommodating. Food was ok-my guests enjoyed their food but my fish was over salted and the side was served cold (I think they forgot to heat it) An off night happens. Usually reliable otherwise

    table 17 looked so promising on their website. so they have a cool ambience + very friendly staff , but the food was nothing to write home about. first courses was no more then ok. the duke pat'e and olives where good (i don't think restaurants should charge for olives) and the house famous "hot balls" where really not so "hot" but again ok + the mains where just bad. the halibut was dead! dry as a desert and the fact that it was placed in a ball of not so yummy broth did not help . the only great thing on the menu was the fritz . my husband felt that he needed something sweet to kill the taste of the fish, so he was brave and ordered the peach and goat yogurt pie ( big mistake . it was not sweet and it was not good)
