17Hundred90 Inn and Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
We ate during a very busy Saturday night and were about 45 minutes early for our reservation. The wonderful staff at 17Hundred90 seated us anyway. John was our server and was friendly but rushed, but that was probably because we were seated early. I had Salmon Oscar and my husband had Pork Osso Bucco. Both dishes were very good and while mine was not as hot as it could have been, the flavor made it a non-issue. The restaurant also serves Leopold's ice cream so that was dessert. Our appetizers were Crab Stew which was spectacular and their Signature Salad which my husband was pleased with. We will definitely go back!
On the morning of February 16th my husband called to make reservations for my birthday that evening. He was told they were booked until Sunday the 19th and they ended the conversation. Since it was my birthday and he knew I really wanted to try there, he immediately got online and was able to book a table for the expect time that we wanted. Odd considering 30 seconds before he was told they were booked, but ok. We arrived early so we had drinks at the bar. 5 minutes later I decide to order an appetizer while we wait. 15 minutes later no appetizer but our table is ready so I ask if it can simply be transferred to our table. I'm informed it can't because the order was never put in. We were seated meet our server Hill, who was AMAZING and honestly the only reason that I give the review 3 stars. Oh and the bacon wrapped scallops we really good. The rest of the meal was downhill from there. Both my fillet mignon and lobster were under cooked and bland. The green beans we barley blanched and bland. My husband had the duck which was under cooked and the truffle macaroni & cheese had a too much truffle oil. This is definitely not an experience in looking forward to repeating. Had our server, Hill, not been great we would've left a lot sooner.
We had a wonderful waiter, Johnathan, who was attentive and friendly. My husband enjoyed the three course meal for $30 during restaurant week including biscuits with gravy, a wedge salad and chateaubriand and dessert. The piano player was amazing and complimented our entire evening. Will definitely go back when we visit again.
My friends and I went there for restaurant week. The bar was crowded and very noisy, but once at out table, the noise level was appropriate for the time of day.
The duck I ordered was cooked perfectly, but I felt the chef overdid it with the BBQ style sauce he used on it. I think it would have been better overall with nothing more than garlic butter baste.
If I order it again, I will ask for the sauce to be omitted.
This place is great. Go early and have drinks in bar. Great prices and good pours. Service was outstanding in restaurant.All servers were very professional. My wife had a leg brace and Patrick (owner) had a table waiting for us. Food was cooked perfect. I would recommend Neptune. Restaurant Week menu is very good also. Piano player was playing show tunes which added to the atmosphere.
I highly recommend and give 1790 A+++
We came here for restaurant week and this restaurant did not disappoint! I had the tomato bisque soup that was by far my favorite and its such a shame it's not on the normal menu. Our server was kind and attentive. The dining room was a little dark but reading the menu wasn't a problem. I really enjoyed the piano player in the corner, it added so much to the atmosphere. The only problems were the hostess who was a bit rude and my bourbon cake dessert that was dry and hard. Overall we had a great dinner and would certainly return.
Really nice ambience in historic setting but it is a shame didn’t match to wonderful decor.
The fish was bland and desserts stale and tasteless. We went during restaurant week, and the owner and chef certainly didn’t do a great job showing diners a high quality dining experience. Not really sure why others gave it good reviews although the service and ambience was really nice.
We didn't realize it was Restaurant week, but were nicely suprized by the selections! AWESOME! Every dish that we selected was over the top. The Escargot were served with a light pastry and delicious white wine sauce. (We could have just ate 2 portions of this~WONDERFUL!!) As an entree, we chose the Seared Duck Breast. We were not disapointed in this either. The duck was so flavorful and cooked to perfection. We originally did not think that we would like the balsamic raspberry sauce, but it was just enough to give it a lift, The brie and black truffle macaroni was creamy and quite good! Finished off with the Chocolate Bomb, which to no surprise seemed to be a big favorite in the room! Will definitely return . Oh yeah, did I mention the lovely piano music softly playing in the background? (ABSOUTELY BEAUTIFUL) Great Night! Would have posted pictures, but by the time I thought about it, half of my plate disappeared! (my fault)
My wife and I went for Savannah Restaurant Week, and we weren't disappointed. I had escargot for an appetizer. It was creatively presented, and very good. I would get it again. We both had the duck main course, and again, it was very good. The service was excellent.
Was quite excited to have dinner here. Had a reservation and they seemed busy and we were told to wait at the bar. One hour later, our table was ready. We didn't mind the wait as we were having a night out with friends and had some drinks. Our food came out lukewarm at most. Made a comment to the server and he said that it was because we were the last table and the kitchen was closing up. Certainly not the best answer as we had no choice but to be the last table because of the wait. The food was good, but again, hot would have been much better. Overall, it was ok.
Service was indifferent. We were the first table seated after the restaurant opened. I ordered two beers and the waitor asked my dining companion about his drink choice (there was only two of us). We then asked about the portion sizes of the entrees to which the waitor offerred no assistance. He indicated, yes, the meals could be spouted and were of average size. Long story short, we had twice as much food as we could eat. Last, but certainly not least, is that the waitor returned to our table to verify my dining companion's dinner selection although it was ordered using menu info.
You cannot beat the ambiance at 17 hundred 90 but the quality of the food is another story. I've been going to this restaurant for several years and I've noticed a decline in the quality of the food. My meal, Neptune, was served room temp. The shrimp were over-cooked. The crab cakes were mealy and lacked flavor. Dessert, Pineapple Cake, was mostly sugar cream with a faint taste of pineapple but no pineapple to be found. They need to get the food back up to the standards that are in line with the history and feel of this place.
Love the restaurant and bar area. We are regulars to the bar but have not had dinner at the 1790 in awhile. We were seated very quickly, even before our reservation time and that was wonderful. Waiter, Jefferson, was very good and attentive. My wife had the lobster pasta which was excellent. I had the special for the evening which was stuffed filet of flounder. Not so good. Fish was extremely overcooked and the whole dish had no seasoning, very little flavor. Only seasoning on the entire dish was the rice. I could not even tell what the flounder was stuffed with as it had no flavor at all? Strange. Might have been an off night for the kitchen as the place had a lot of diners that evening. We will return. I usually get the Filet or Glazed Sirloin when I dine here. That has never disappointed.
The food, wine and service was wonderful. The noise was exceptionally high. I could hardly hear my wife who sat across from me. The piano made it worse. Also, I don't know how four people could be served on a table for four. We had three people and it was a bit crowded.
