Wonderful food and superior service! A bit noisy but better if you go early!

Had great food and drinks. Apps and drinks came out immediately. Dinner took a while due to the server chatting it up with another table for about ten to fifteen minutes. Watched out plates be put out for her to bring to us. Another server wound up doing it because she was chatting it up with the other table. The server who brought us our food gave our server a look like what are you doing.

Food was very good however, it is so important to serve meals on HOT plates. When you put a hot piece of fish on a cold plate, the fish doesn't stay warm. Hot plates are a big issue for me and keep me from coming back to a restaurant.

717 is fantastic! It is a great spot for dinner, but an outstanding place for lunch. Their lunch specials are always delicious and their chef changes the specials up often. Additionally, the service is very friendly without being overbearing. I meet clients as well as friends at 717 for lunch often and it is a consistent good choice. I highly recommend 717 for a great meal and outstanding service.

Second time at 717. Each time food and service have been excellent. Ordered Brussels sprouts appetizer and sea bass for dinner. Highly recommend both. Brussels sprouts were tender, flavorful. Nice size piece of sea bass with stone ground grits and greens.

Unfortunately, the staff was stressed and unfriendly. Additionally, the food was too salty and overcooked. I had frequented the restaurant on one prior occasion and was disappointed that it did not live up to my expectations.

We had a lovely Christmas Eve meal that was delicious and perfect for the occasion. The bar area was really beautiful. It wasn't too loud for the older set that was visiting and the menu was varied enough for you and old. We will go back. Excellent service too.

The food was very good but the usual American menu--nothing out of the ordinary but done well. The atmosphere is very pleasant. I will compliment the service--we had 8:15 reservations but one of our party was 25 minutes late (yes, that was most irritating). The kitchen closes at 9:00. Our server (I think her name was Sylvia) was very nice about the wait and made sure that we had anything we needed while we waited (and waiter and waited). She gave us fantastic service--we never felt that we were being hurried along.
