Great place to grab an upscale drink or nice meal where you can actually have a conversation without raising your voice. Both the drinks and food are excellent, and the staff is friendly and competent.
Always a treat. Consistent as it comes. Wish they'd put some old favorites back on the menu, but one of Tampa's gems.
The Brunch is fantastic!
I celebrated my 40th birthday here. The food and drinks were amazing. Brian, our server was wonderful! I highly recommend this restaurant.
I decided to celebrate my birthday dinner here. It my guests' first time and although I have dined here before, it has been at least 2 years. The food is always good and I enjoy the ambiance, but unfortunately, we were dissatisfied with the service this time. The server was polite, but didn't know anything about the menu items, took a long time returning to the table and neglected to clear our plates between courses. They weren't busy at all and had maybe 5 seated tables. The prices are too high to just have mediocre service, where we're having to ask for plates to be cleared and for refills. We just weren't impressed enough to come back or recommend this place to friends.
Good food and service, however wasn't very crowed, noise was moderate, if very crowded I am sure would have been very noisy.
Waitress was inattentive and absent most of meal.
Food was fair.
After being unattended for 15 minutes, management was apologetic and provided Sydney who was a top tier server. We had a great experience. Good food and wine. We’ll definitely return. Only complaint is it’s VERY loud inside. Still worth going.
Wonderful ambiance, excellent food and service, great location, and delicious drink selections to celebrate a birthday with friends. Highly recommended.
Our waitress Morgan was outstanding! Food and ambiance were great!
Delicious food and a great time. Only caveat is that it was very, very loud. The acoustics carry sound throughout, and it was hard to hear our conversation at our own table.
We found this restaurant last minute. Great staff, good and atmosphere. I would highly recommend
Excellent food, excellent service
Loved our waitress. She was very knowledgeable about the menu, friendly and attentive. We ended up being the only table still eating at the end so we got plenty of attention. Our best meal of many good ones in Tampa.
Very cute, yummy food
Great food and great service. Will definitely be back!
Fantastic Brunch Experience for my birthday! Party of 10 great service and delicious food! Thank you!😊🎂
Best thing was the beetroot salad. Everything else (risotto bonbons, sea bass and grouper) was as expected- nothing outstandingly memorable except the salad. Cocktails (paper airplane & pomegranate martini) were more fruity than expected but good. Server was sweet but wine came after we were half-way through dinner. Nice meal but just OK. Too many other outstanding choices in Tampa.
Food was great. The obly seating that remained was outside. They don't pay attention to you as well as they should when you're outside. Prior to covid not sure if outside was really used. But a waitress assigned to an outside table having tables inside on the other side of the restaurant caused us to be forgotten about a few times. But waitress when she remembered had a pleasant attitude. We will go back. Scallops with cauliflower puree was amazing.
Excellent, everyone at table enjoyed their meal
Food and drinks were excellent!! The red pepper sauce on the sea bass was amazing!
My first time there, though had driven past it many times. Our reservation was honored on time (we didn't have to wait). The food was delicious and we had great service (from Rose). The portions were sufficient - not huge but more than enough. And we didn't have to wait long at all between courses. The only recommendation I would have is to offer some of the wines on the "bottle" list as by the glass.
Took my nephew and a couple of his buddies (ages 22-24) to 717. They loved the food, and, frankly it’s the food that makes 717 a standout. High raves for the pork chop, steaks, and Grouper, which our group has declared the best ever. Service is usually very good but just mediocre this night. Still we had a great dinner.
Anthony is always a great server .
Food is always delicious.
We tried this restaurant for the first time on Father's Day - it was not busy. The cocktails were poorly made, the waitress didn't know how to answer questions about the menu - "I don't know what it tastes like" "it's a dollop of something"....she didn't know and didn't bother to ask anyone. The food was mediocre at best. Overpriced for what it was. Never will go back
Expensive for what you get. They seem to be struggling in the service side.
Reserved a table for Father’s Day brunch. We were very excited since our one other visit to the restaurant had been excellent on Valentine’s Day a few years ago. Portions were small, my husband’s pork belly looked and tasted more like pork loin and was quite dry. My Benedict had very little hollandaise sauce and it was very thin. We were definitely disappointed at the quality and portion size of the food for the price. Our server, however, was excellent. Would still go back again, but not for brunch.
I would have to say service was fantastic , drinks were great, but food was not not as good as we would have thought , prices are decent, but not the best steaks we have ever had, filet was drowning in brown gravy, Bone in ribeye was thin and not very tasty, the chicken Carbonara had too much garlic and onion flavor, it was decent enough that we will give it another try but not fantastic. Our Server was very good and that was the highlight.
We loved our waitress, she was great. We sat on the patio and loved the privacy out there as we were a large group and can get loud. :) The food was good, the only complaint is the steak was a little too cooked for a medium/medium rare steak, but the grouper was to die for! Also, the calamari and chicken wings were definitely favorites!
Best place to celebrate a birthday with great friends!! Food was incredible, service was on point and the atmosphere was perfect! My favorite place in Tampa!
We had a lovely Birthday Celebration. Madison N. our Waiter did a WONDERFUL JOB.
She had everything to our table promptly and on time. It was a very crowded night and I'm sure she had challenges getting everyone's order out on time -- but ours was great.
5 STARS to Madison N.
The noise level was so loud that we could not hear ourselves talk at the same table. We will not be coming back on Saturday Night but will come in Mid-Week. We enjoy the restaurant.
Excellent place in Tampa!
Excellent food and service.
My favorite restaurant in Tampa. I'm in love with the Asian pot roast.
Parking sucked got blocked in…………………………..🤔😑😤🎈🤔
The food was excellent and very unique. And we really enjoyed the look of the restaurant and bar. When we were there on a Wednesday night it seemed maybe, like many places right now, they are struggling with enough staff as the service was a bit slow. It took awhile to get drinks etc. But overall good experience.
We had a fantastic time the food was absolutely delicious and the servers oh, the bartenders, and the chef we're just amazing. They were so accommodating and very warm and friendly. If I ever come back to Tampa I definitely will be dining here again.
Great food. Drinks on point. Would recommend highly
Excellent service & food! We will be back!
