Great food and service
Great food - especially the fish. Not impressed with the cocktail but appetizer Brussel sprouts were excellent along with fish special.
717 South serves delicious food. Having said that, I experienced a terrible situation recently. The staff had sprayed something- at dinner time! The fumes spread through the air conditioning system, causing 5 tables of people to cough badly. Where was the manager? Nowhere until someone demanded his presence, with a flimsy explanation of hot sauce causing the fumes! Several of us left, and this manager could not have cared less. The fact that my guest ‘s birthday wasn’t acknowledged was also unusual. This restaurant should have picked up our tabs as a result of such poor performance.
Our waitress was the greatest. Food perfect. Loved it.
Really good food, though I would not bet my bottom dollar that the salmon was "wild," as promised on the menu. It tasted like very good Atlantic salmon, nothing more, nothing less. Grouper was excellent. Sides were thoughtful. If I lived in the neighborhood, this would be a go-to spot.
Would like to see the business casual dress code enforced. The menu and prices warrant a better class of dress than people in jeans, flip flops and tee shirts. This was a real draw back for me since I abided by the dress code and thought it would be a nice ambiance for us to celebrate her birthday, instead I felt like we were at a Beef O Bradys. The food, the restaraunt, and staff were all very nice and this place should require a certain atmosphere after 6 p.m. After all the establishment deserves to be respected as fine dining.
Timed our visit for a Thursday night to see Josh at 717. Always makes the dining experience the best!!!!
Great food was great ambiance great
717 South has been one of our "go to" restaurants since moving here 11 years ago. We have never been disappointed.
Excellent service and exceptional food.
As usual, the food was excellent - salmon and grouper both very tasty. We were seated in booth and adjacent was a table with four businessmen. The booth and table were very close together so the noice from their table was a little loud. Otherwise, great experience.
Great food, you can't go wrong with their bread (we love it). No matter how many times I order salmon, it's always delicious, tasty, and simply never disappointing. Best part of our last dinner was the martini, lol. I had raspberry jalapeno something..... I want to re.create at home.
Phenomenal meal... you must try the macadamia nut crusted chicken! Good place for a romantic meal or special occasion.
My husband took our 8yr old daughter to dinner before their father/daughter dance. They had a wonderful night. One she is not soon to forget. We love 717 South!
I have been to 717 South numerous times and the service, food, and atmosphere never changes! Always a first choice with friends, family or business associates. You can start at the bar for cocktails then a nice dinner with wine...or just meet for drinks and appetizers if your time is limited. Make a reservation because you never know how busy the SoHo area will be and 717 South is a local favorite.
Food at 717 South was absolutely wonderful. Each one of the four of us was extremely pleased with our food. Our server, Rachael, was excellent -- efficient yet friendly and helpful. This is not your trendy restaurant with so-so food; this place is truly outstanding! The only thing preventing 5 stars is the noise level even on a Tuesday evening at the back of the restaurant in a corner booth. If you are hearing challenged, go on a weekday night and ask for a quiet booth in the back -- management is very accomodating.
try the roasted cauliflower with pesto. Very good!
Wonderful service. Wonderful food. Table was ready for us and it was round as requested. A lovely evening. The six of us will all come again
Good atmosphere, not rushed, appetizers and main courses arrived hot. First time visit - enjoyed the meal and will return.
This was our first visit & we really enjoyed it. We had drinks at the bar, then dinner outside. Very comfortable & great ambiance. The food was delicious. Highly recommended! We’ll be back!
Great first time experience! Highly recommend. Definitely enjoyed the ambiance and the server was outstanding. The cocktails were unique and the menu was eclectic and very tasty.
Natalie was a great server
We eat here often.
I ordered the surf and turf... The lobster tail was AMAZING!!
Amazing Valentines dinner here. Huge portions, multi-course meal... Lamb and steak were cooked perfectly. Truly fine dining. One of the best restaurants in South Tampa.
Good overall. They had a set 4 course menu for V day but wish they would have had a kids menu available at the least. I get it not many kids will be there tonight but how hard is it to prepare a burger and fries?
We chose 717 South for our Valentines Day Dinner. They offered a Prix Fixe menu with great options! It turned out to be the best dinner we'd had at a Tampa Restaurant in ages. The service (Dominique) was excellent and the meal far exceeded our expectations. Thanks, 717, for keeping it real!
Went to 717 South for Valentines dinner and it was amazing! From the escargot, to the crab bisque, to the filet oscar, to the chocolate torte, everything was perfectly done! Service was quick and attentive and the value for the dinner was spectacular! It was the perfect start to a great evening!
Great food, great service, great location.
Girlfriends birthday and pre Billy Joel concert dinner. The food was outstanding. The server got my girlfriends drink wrong twice. She forgot to tell us about their amazing garlic bread until we found out about it after we paid. We would come back as the food is well worth the trip.
I have always wanted to try this restaurant but thought it was pricey but actually was reasonably priced. Service was great and the food food excellent. Will recommend to my friends and co-workers.
Consistently very good ....great food ,good service ,convenient.
Excellent venue. Friendly staff. Wonderful ambiance. Had several appetizers which were all terrific.
Four of us adults went to celebrate my husbands promotion. We enjoyed every drink, appetizer, entree, and dessert. Our waiter was very helpful and enthusiastic about the food. Everything was great. Only one recommendation, wine specials. We would have stayed for a third bottle of wine if the price point wasn’t so high. Maybe do a buy two bottles, get the third half price.
Food and service both excellent. Had a group of 10 people and our server handled it with no problem. Clearly a pro! Amazed at how quickly our food arrived. The restaurant is beautiful, though a bit noisy. Most entrees $30+, though I had an excellent lasagna for $17. Wine prices very reasonable. We will be back!
Great se bass
Our favorite place. But the corner they put us in that night was FREEZING so they moved us. Service was slow and spotty but the place wasn’t full. We’ll be back.
Food and drinks are always exceptional. We come quite frequently. We had to wait about 30 minutes tonight despite having a reservation but it’s understandable considering how busy Tampa is this weekend. Thank you for not sacrificing your service and quality!
We've been to 717 several time and thoroughly enjoyed each of our visits. I'd say we are almost regulars. We've tried almost everything on the menu except the steaks, everything is of great quality and prepared well. Most of the time service is great, the last time it was so so with Jane.
We ordered fish tacos, wings, beef egg rolls, Caesar salad and bacon Mac n cheese. Only the Mac n cheese was good.
